Looks like some solid strength gainz Rich! That 185 OHP was awesome! Grats on the 305 bench, the 315 milestone is right there for the taking! Bummer about the 505 pull but no doubt that is gonna go real soon.
Very solid progress

AGREED
A fantasy awakes, a dark desire to
Watch you slip away into oblivion
I can't wait to see your flesh turn pale
When I hear the last breath you take fail...

Thanks Shawn. Just getting comfortable with the increased volume and RPE again. I liked the program last time so it stands to reason I should get some results again. I'm hoping weights will increase a little quicker this time with more squatting and variations.


week 2 day 2 BBM the bridge v1

Weights moved well yesterday and things were feeling pretty comfortable.

Pause squats looking excellent, also looking jacked in the vids buddy.
I really like the bridge too and will revisit it one day. Didnít really like the bench programming but I never did finish the program, got sick with the flu before I finished

Thanks Shawn. I think the accessories in the 531 version I was running added a little mass. I'm hoping to keep it.

Thanks Merk. I like paused squats. Don't ask why cause I don't really know either.


Another day done on the bridge. Just some gpp tomorrow. The weights moved well. Paused bench was an rpe8 except the last set I'd call a 9. I don't mind tempo squats but it's hard as hell to remember what rep I'm on. I think I did 9 on the first set and 7 on the second. I went back and did an extra rep when I realised. Enough chit chat. Here's the results

5x365@rpe6

Done

Back at it again. Took about a week off. I've literally bought the farm so we are moving. I'm trying to stay in the gym as long as possible in between packing and all the other shit that has to happen. Things didn't work out as well as we had hoped and the closing on our house is mid august but we don't close on the new house till the end of the month. Means we're homeless for about 2 weeks and we essentially have to move twice. Not happy about that. anyways, here's today's session. I'm trying a little hypertrophy for now. It'll keep me lifting without beating me up too much. I liked the last 531 template I was running so I'm using that but instead of the 531 for the main lift's I'm just doing 4 to 5 sets of 5. Also going to drop a little weight and do more slow and controlled reps.


start of bastardized what ever this is.

3 0 3 tempo squat
4 x 5 x 225

slow leg press

3 x 10 x 340

SLDL

3 x 10 x 225

leg extension.

3 x 10 x 90 plate weight
