2015-03-09 training log


I hit 10 consecutive dips today. That’s a milestone.

I mean, I used to not do dips because of shoulder issues. Then I started again, bench dips, then said screw it and went for proper dips. The goal was to get 10 in a row, and today I achieved that! To boot, it was after my bench work.

Am I stronger? Sure. But the real success was dropping a significant amount of weight.

Now that I hit 10, I’m going to ride that out until I can get 5×10 across — that’s the next goal.

In other news… weight is up a hair from Thursday’s slack, but slowly coming back down. I remain in the ballpark for this mid so I’m good with it all. No question tho, the body is happier to have more carbs and more fat. I overall function better, in the gym I’m obviously hitting more reps…. it’ll be depressing in abou 4 weeks when I’m 1. back on the fat-loss train, 2. about a week of the loser-diet has been going and I’ll be all depleted. 🙂 But hopefully this is the home stretch for me, so I’ll roll with it.

Because of that, I keep thinking about where to go after this. I’m pretty firm in my desire to make my next goal bench 3, squat 4, deadlift 5… which could mean 300/400/500 or 3/4/5-wheels… Kinda going for the latter, but certainly you hit the former on your way there. Given that, I have actually been toying with the idea of going back to 5/3/1 OR maybe even finally trying Cube (Kingpin, if I did opt for any particular template). Don’t know, thinking out loud, but I am pretty certain 3/4/5 is my next goal.
