    Today's workout: Squats 3x5 @ 100kg. I think I can start going back up and try 102.5kg next time (and we'll see how it goes, key is mastering technique etc) Deadlift 1x5 @122.5kg. Probably gonna do this weight again (not sure for how long but at least once or twice...), there's no need to rush...

    It's just too much for me to plan workouts at the gym every day or every other day. As I've noted multiple times, this'll change in January but until then I am too busy with uni work on a day-to-day basis. My program/approach for december is thus: two to three times a week: strength wkt with 1...

    Yep, definitely sth I'm aiming to master/learn/practice moving forward... One of those great compound strength/full body moves/exercises that bring a lot of things together^^

    Today's workout: 'Greasing the Groove' - throughout the day, w/ hourly s-pullups (1x1) and pushups (1x3) from 9am to 6pm. Since I started the day with 1x4 pushups and 1x2 s-pullups, that makes a total of: 11 s-pullups (so-called 'chin ups'; it's obviously not my chin I'm pulling up, is it? lol)...

    Today's workout: Plan was 4x10 shoulder press (10kg dumbbells) w/ ~30" rest, but for last set I managed only ~3 reps. S-pullups ('chinups') - amap sets of 1: 10 (I think?) 10min run Pushups - amap sets of 3 (30"rest): 5. 4x amrap bicep curls @ 12.5kg dumbbells (<1min rest) Squats 3x5 @ 100...

    Today's workout S-pullups ('chinups') - amap sets of 1: 9 (or 10?), + 3 negative s-pullups. Pushups - amap sets of 3: 6 with ~perfect form, +1. Squats: 3x5 @ 100kg. I think it was the right choice to go down again, this felt better, more in control. Deadlifts: 1x5 @ 120kg.

    Goal this week is to at least do the same workout (chinups, pushups, squats, deadlifts) twice, perhaps on thursday and then once during weekend.

    A Revolutionary Ranger's Training Log in the Age of Zombie Capitalism

    I'm at peace with the fact of not always being able to keep my progress, linear progression is only possible for so long obviously... (and more fundamentally, my university schedule/workload + combined w/ narcolepsy means I shouldn't be too negative about myself because it's still very good that...

    I actually did the squats @ 105, but maybe it's a good idea to take up from 100 next time... Sadly I have to wait for until 23 Nov for the belt... But in any case, I'm not in a rush and more importantly, it's normal that I'm struggling with these heavy squats because for a few weeks I've only...

    Here's an idea for tomorrow's workout: Sets of 2 or 3 pushups with 15''-to-30'' rest -> goal is doing as many sets of this as possible (and see how many reps in total I can do..) Similarly, sets of 1 s-pullup (so-called 'chin up') -> as many sets (and hence also reps) as possible Squats 3x5 @...

    Unfortunately, I can only have the belt in 10+ days (bcz of delivery). Still, tomorrow I'll do squats and deadlifts, there's usually less people at the gym on sundays so maybe I'll go at 10 or 11am (usually I try going before 10am). I'll do deadlifts at 120kg (like the last times), and maybe...
