    Strength Training - Over 50 - TotT's Journal

    New Journal - Continuation of the old: https://igoodies.000webhostapp.com/?viagra=showth...hp?t=157127693

    My goals are pretty straight forward.
    Squat 400, Bench 315, Deadlift 500.
    Additionally, regardless if I hit my targets or not, I want to be consistent and stay strong into my 80's.

    Right now I'm doing 5/3/1.
    5/3/1 Week 1
    warm up ramps, always
    5 @ 65%TM
    5 @ 75%
    5+ @ 85%
    + Joker sets (if I feel really good)
    3+sets of First Set Last, 5-8 reps (FSL) @65%

    Week 2
    3 @ 70%
    3 @ 80%
    3+ @ 90%
    + Joker sets (if I feel really good)
    3+sets of First Set Last, 3-5 reps (FSL) @70%

    Week 3
    5 @ 75%
    3 @ 85%
    1+ @ 95% - always AMRAP up to 10. I'll stop at 10 even if.
    + Joker sets (if I feel really good)
    3+sets of First Set Last, 3-5 reps (FSL) @75%

    Week 4
    Deload, looks like either just warm up ramps or I lay off completely, like last week. I do it whether I feel like I need it or not.

    Add 5 lbs for upper body TM and 10 lbs for lower, then repeat.
    I'm starting my 4th cycle this Saturday (a day early), since I kicked this off again in July.
    Normal schedule is
    Squat - Sunday
    Deadlift - Thursday
    Bench - Saturday

    I've hit some bigger numbers on my jokers, but I'm only adjusting my TM by 5 or 10 lbs each cycle.
    Some days, I feel really good and my plus sets are quite a ways beyond the minimum, e.g. 7-8 on a 3+ day. Other days, sleep deprived, or when gravity is being mean, I get my minimum and that's all that's there. As long as I hit the minimums, I'm planning on ramping the TM each cycle. If I miss, I'll keep it flat for the next. If I miss twice, then I'll drop back 10% on that lift and start again.

    Sorry for the TL;DR but there's my approach. Happy to answer questions.

    4 x 385 lbs [174.6kg] - joker - Another Rep PR

    Crunches and Flutterkicks to finish the morning.

    A little tough getting moving this morning, but those 345 and 385 sets were real strong feeling. Good to come back strong feeling after a deload. I've decided to ditch the OHP on Tuesdays due to my left shoulder. I'll monitor how it's doing on benches this Saturday to see if I add some lighter presses or just leave it be for a while. Tried to push through the pain, but I've got too many years ahead....uh...and behind me to accept that. Feels a little better just laying off it for two weeks, so time will tell. And bench will tell.

    Note about Rep PR's

    I keep track of Rep PR's on this 5/3/1 program because it gives me a target to beat when I get to my + set. So for example, today, I had a 5+ set of deadlifts scheduled with 345 lbs. I saw on my tracker that I had done 330 for 7 at some point in these last 4 cycles, so I needed to beat that. Here's the way I track that.



    I also keep this on a dry erase whiteboard in my home gym, so I can see it during a workout.

    very nice start to your new journal. good luck.

    something to take a look at: your squat form generally patterns a low bar squat, yet the bar placement is rather high bar. if you can work on your shoulder mobility and skootch that bar a bit lower down your traps, imo your squat numbers will skyrocket.

    Thanks! Absolutely right, my shoulders are way too tight. I've done high bar most of my life and have been trying to go low bar this run, but as you see, tougher than it sounds. I'll look into how to get these shoulders looser...if it's not too late.

    Appreciate the feedback!

    meh, you're a young pup! maybe about 4 years ago, i crapped out on 1rm in squat at 300lbs. i then worked, i mean worked, at getting that damn bar lower. probably took me more than a month, more like 2 months, to get it in place. then of course all ligament/tendon angles needed to adjust. but i got a 365lb squat in short order as a result, and was repping the same 300lbs that i had failed on for 10 reps.

    anyway, it's all good my friend. hit it hard!

    11/19/2015 - THURSDAY - 5:05 AM - 5/3/1 - WEEK 3 - CYCLE 5
    Energy Level = 5/10
    BW =214 lbs

    DEADLIFT - TM=400 lbs [181.4kg]

    5 x 135 lbs [61.2kg] - wu
    5 x 200 lbs [90.7kg] - wu

    5 x 300 lbs [136.1kg] - 75%TM
    3 x 340 lbs [154.2kg] - 85%TM
    1 x 380 lbs [172.4kg] - 95%TM - 1+ set - Mean ole Mr. Gravity this morning.

    Can't say I was happy with that, but I shall be satisfied, nonetheless. It's been one year to the day that I seriously tore my right external oblique deadlifting 365 lbs. So I really can't complain. This has been a good run (one more workout in this cycle). Deload next week.

    Putting some serious effort into shoulder mobility. Doing Anywhere Arm Bars, if you know your Sean Schniederjan. Already seems to help my left shoulder feel better. Time will tell.

    Good work in here man. Love that white board idea. I had an old home gym in a different room at one point and had chalk board paint on part of the wall but that was just a pain. I think I'll steal your idea

    It's not the powerlifting, leg drive type, but thanks! Appreciate it. I've got a little shake going on at max effort (shows in my right arm in the vid)...something that's come on as I get older.

    Keep pushing it. Slow and steady over the long haul. Are you going to post in a journal? Works as another form of motivation, I've found. Cheers!

    This is my deload week (Week 4 - Cycle 5), so I'll post the meager stats at the end of the week. Next week I'm going to do a 1 Cycle test on 3/5/1 and see how that feels. I'm liking the idea of heavy-medium-heavy-deload (3/5/1), but I need to feel it to really decide if its something I'll extend into next year.

    12 x 11.25 lbs ea.
    12 x 11.25 lbs ea.


    Itching to get on with next week's training. Setting SQUAT TM to 290 lbs, DEADLIFT TM to 410 lbs, and BENCH TM to 255 lbs.
    I'm going to do the next three weeks as 3/5/1 as an experiment. 3+ and 1+ weeks with a single at TM, 5 week is strictly 5 and no more. Will also include FSL as I feel up to it.

    I'm also going to be putting plywood into my cage and deadlift area. I've noticed that the padded flooring I'm standing on is squishing down as I get under heavier loads, and that can't be good for me. We'll see how that changes things. I've also put a new deadlift bar on my Christmas wish list. Either this bar or that bar.

    Oh, and starting Monday and Tuesday next week, I start (again) coaching my two remaining teenagers on Starting Strength, following strictly after Rippetoe's protocol and using GOMAD for about two months. Hoping to see about 20-30 lbs of bodyweight added to each one. I'll see if I can manage a separate log with pics and vids to keep them accountable in addition to Drill Sergeant Dad! The 18 yo is going into the USMC in June, and the 16 yo is on the varsity high school football team. I hope we can get both into MAN BEAST territory by then. Stay tuned!

    Okay workout. Could have gotten more on the 3+ set and the 315, but the bar kept rolling around on my traps. Trying desperately to do low bar squats, but I just have to keep at it. Working on shoulder mobility. New floor worked fine.

    Video is a bit long. Enjoy the launch music.

    Hello Sir,
    Looks like you are well organized with your training, especially with clearly tracking your PRs (I like the whiteboard idea, too).

    You just recently switched from the standard 5/3/1 to the powerlifting-specific 3/5/1 format. I think you will enjoy the more frequent singles (1+ sets) you are doing on week 1 and week 3, instead of just doing them on one day during week 3.

    You just came off a deload. After loading for 3 weeks, did you feel the need to deload, or did you simply deload because the program designed for it? My memory of 5/3/1 (3rd edition) is a bit foggy, but I believe the deload weeks could be stretched out after 2 loading" waves (6 weeks loading, 1 week deloading).

    BTW, I did 5/3/1 for 11 months straight -- with it, I deadlifted 3x BW in competition for the first time. Hope you see similar gains!

    Thanks for visiting the journal! I deload every four weeks because my body needs it. Now that I'm 50, I've noticed the need more than ever. I'm making small steps forward, but I think my hyooge gains are behind me. Don't get me wrong, I'm going to continue to bust my ass for as long as the gains keep coming. I just know I'm well past newb gains and it's slow and steady here on out.
