I'll be adding chin ups and dips as assistance work soon as well. I'm loving this workout so far I'm just concern about stalling before I would like. In a perfect world I'd like my lifts to be around these numbers after a few more months:

Squat 225
Press 125
Bench 175
Deadlift 285
Clean 175

I know many of those aren't much but to me it would be a good feeling to hit those.

What do you guys think? Doable?
Yes definitely doable. Yo could probably get it in a month or two.

missed this. i agree. i think the amount of reps hes doing now will be good for muscle memory as well. once he starts to peak im sure hell be doing a lot less reps.

yeah thats how i do it. today i warmed up with 185 on goodmornings and got up to about 250 after 3 sets. i threw on 2 more 25's then starting going up little by little.

make sure youre keeping your body hydrated!

you taking any supplements?

Is the reset something like stalling then dropping the weight back down?

I'm not taking anything but a multivitamin. I'm going to start back with the whey/casein and creatine soon.

Resetting if where you drop the weight down by 10 - 20 lbs just on the exercise you stall on. They talk about it in more detail in the book. It's especially useful if you stall in jut one left but the others are still continuing to progress. If you read back through my log I think I had to reset once on bench and once on squats. I also dropped down to micro loading on the press. I could be wrong though, it was a while ago.

makes sense. So basically if I fail on a 175lb squat I'll drop it to 155 and work back up right?

we did a hang clean challenge last year. 12 platforms. all went up about 10-15lbs if i remember correctly. started with 135, i ended up with 283 i believe.

hit myself in the chin on the first platform -____-


i didnt fail until i hit 276 i think. then i got it. went up twice more. since i dont typically lift like a baseball player, i was the only one who made it through the first round. one guy failed on the first platform. total embarrassment.

did fridays workout today because I was busy last night

On an empty stomach about 30 minutes after waking up

Barbell Squat:
1 lb x 20 reps
45 lb x 10 reps
95 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
165 lb x 5 reps
165 lb x 5 reps
165 lb x 5 reps

very heavy. Hoping my caloric increase and creatine I ordered give me a little boost soon.

Barbell Bench Press:
45 lb x 25 reps
95 lb x 10 reps
115 lb x 5 reps
125 lb x 5 reps
125 lb x 5 reps
125 lb x 5 reps
still easy but getting heavier.

Barbell Deadlift:
135 lb x 5 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
205 lb x 2 reps
215 lb x 5 reps
215 today felt easier than 205 on monday. The first rep off the floor is the hardest then the other 4 just felt to flow better.

Are you setting the bar down and resetting on deadlift? Or just touching the ground?

Do u ever just drop the bar from overhead on lifts? I've heard it can be hard on your tendons and ligaments dropping the weight slowly. At Crossfit we always dropped from overhead. Unfortunately my new gym I can't.

No, he means from overhead. Why the fvck are you dropping all your deadlifts. You're losing out on a lot and potentially risking injury.
