DL

Busy day

walk

no warmup, really, just

DL - no hook, to try to get my right thumb to heal from the bone bruise

130 x 2 - double over, fingerhooks but with thumbs helping a little
110 x 5 - full grip, double over
130 x 2 double over
130 x 3 r/u - feels strong, fingerhooks, really
130 x 2 l/u - doesn't feel as strong - I think r/u is going to be the over/under of choice

Over/under feels _so_ much easier

NL = 14 - was supposed to be 12, I think.

Plan was:

10 (20%) as 110 x (3), 130 x (7)
12 (23%) as 110 x (4), 130 x (8)
14 (26%) as 110 x (4), 130 x (10)
16 (30%) as 110 x (5), 130 x (11)

So far, Monday was NL = 110 x 3, 130 x 7, total 10 lifts 
Today was NL = 110 x 5, 130 x 9, total 14 lifts

Plan will be 12 on Thursday and 16 on Saturday
Th = 110 x 4, 130 x 8 as 130 x 3, 110 x 4, 130 x 3, 2
Sa = 110 x 5, 130 x 11 as 130 x 3, 110 x 5, 130 x 3, 2, 3

This week will be 110 x 17, 130 x 35
1870 kg + 4550 kg = 6420 kg
6420 kg / 52 = 123.46
123.46 / 162.5 = 76% (75.97)

1APU, DL

Today, Saturday

Lots of grip-intensive move of deadlift mats - ended up having to put it all back, but it helped in planning DL area, version 2.

1APU
@ 12" x 1R/L, 2R/L
@ 10" x 2R/L
@ 12" x 2R/L, 1R/L
@ 10" x 1R/L

DL:

narrow sumo: 90 kg (205 lbs)  x 7, fingerhook grip, thumbs over the bar

conventional:

110 x 3, 130 x 2, 110 x 5, 130 x 3 for 13 lifts total, and 28 for the week, 1 more than planned 27 but I'm OK with a small increase in volume in this block as well.

Wasn't much variability in intensity from 75% this week.  
15 lifts @ 110 kg = 1650 kg
13 lifts @ 130 kg = 1690 kg

3340 kg / 28 lifts = 119.28 kg average = 73.4% - that's actually OK, 75 - 1.6%

Next week, maybe aim for average intensity of 76.6% (75 + 1.6%)

Plan for week of Feb 11: 50 lifts @ 76.3 average intensity - math works out better, and since last month was only 74%, this is OK with me.  We get there by doing 15 lifts @ 110 and 35 lifts @ 130.

4 sessions: 
10 (20%) as 110 x (3), 130 x (7)
12 (23%) as 110 x (4), 130 x (8)
14 (26%) as 110 x (4), 130 x (10)
16 (30%) as 110 x (5), 130 x (11)

For the week, 110 x 16, 130 x 36 = 52 lifts

No DL, Dip/Ring/1APU/1LDL "circuit"

Wednesday, today

Today, 5L/R + 4L/R of same

Little "circuit"

Dip Stretch + dip x 2
Rings: StC + partial FL x 1

BB style PU x 1
1-arm contralateral DL @ 24 kg x 1L/R

rest

repeat above, then

1APU @ 12" x 2R/L

DL, and the plan for the next 4 weeks

Tuesday, 5 Feb

Next 4 weeks, plan is

*  Keep NL the same at 180
*  Introduce more variability: NL by the week: 27, 50, 40, 63
*  Split reps, half at 110 kg (242 lb) and half at 130 kg (285 lb)

Week 1: 2 days

Today, Tuesday, NL = 15

110 kg x 3
130 kg x 2
110 kg x 4 (NL @110 = 7)
130 kg x 3, 3 (NL @130 = 8)

NB: Taped thumbs for the first time - ah, wonderful!

Was short on time so only DL, in part because there will be only two lifting days this week, so we'll devote more time to 1APU on other days.

Next session: NL = 12

Maybe we'll intentionally couple intensity and volume in two different ways

Week 1 = low volume, low intensity
Week 2 = high volume, high intensity
Week 3 = low volume, high intensity
Week 4 = high volume, low intensity

This suggests, since I've done one more lift @ 130 already, tilting the balance towards 110 on my next lifting day.  Maybe even try a set of 5 @ 110, and probably should do 8 lifts @ 110 and 4 @ 130, so something like 110 x 3, 130 x 2, 110 x 5, 130 x 2

1APU, DL, plan summary and next block

Yesterday, Friday,

walk and StC + partial FL on rings

Today, Saturday

walk

1APU @ 12", rf x 4R/L, 3R/L, 2R/L, 1R/L

DL:

200 lbs., narrow sumo x 5, fingerhook grip, and for speed of hips moving forward

265 x 17 singles on the :45, all hook grip, conventional, and controlled negatives although some more controlled than others.  E.g., 00:00, 00:45, 01:30, 02:15, then 3:00 and so on, 12:00 was the 17th lift.  Not at all out of breath, great to be both easier on my thumbs _and_ get practice setting up my hook grip.

Summary of previous 4 weeks:

1 weight = 74% of 162.5 kg, 120 kg, 265 lbs.

NL and % of 180 total NL:
Week 1: 40 (22%) as M = 10, Tu = 4, We = 6, Th = 12, Sa = 8
Week 2: 55 (31%) as M = 14, Tu = 6, We = 8, Th = 10, Sa = 17
Week 3: 38 (21%) as We = 16, Th = 10, Sa = 12
Week 4: 47 (26%) as We = 18, Th = 12, Sa = 17

Next 4 weeks, plan is

*  Keep NL the same at 180
*  Introduce more variability: NL by the week: 27, 50, 40, 63
*  Split reps, half at 110 kg (242 lb) and half at 130 kg (285 lb)
