    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...

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

    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...

    Nope I'll do squats and deadlifts on sunday, I have too much work and don't feel like going to gym this morning. Moreover the whole point was I need to buy a belt, which I should be able to do tomorrow... Still will do some kind of workout today (maybe a short one with pushups and dumbbells etc)

    Today's workout: epic hiit, 3 sets. Tomorrow I plan doing squats and deadlifts again, but maybe I'll drop to 100kg or 105kg for squats in order to make sure I practice perfect form, aka esp. full range of motion. I'm buying a belt on saturday, so maybe sunday I'll do the same workout again if I...

    So because I'm really sore after saturday and sunday's workouts, today I'm not gonna planning anything but a stretch/foam rolling/yoga/etc would be nice.... This week I plan do to a bit more than other weeks because I only have work to do rather than courses/seminars I need to attend, so my...

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

    Absolutely, and I actually don't mind at all being "stuck" because I see it (apart from simply concretely not being able to manage a higher weight) as - like you said - a patient process of training form (and therefore training strength), i.e. training the movement with (as best as possible)...

    Also, I forgot to buy a weightlifting belt, and I'm now feeling it my back is hurting/very sore today... I know that I can do these lifts since I did it a week or so ago, so I'm not too worried and it's normal that it takes a toll and I need to make sure I rest properly and stretch/take care...

    Today's workout: Squats: 1x5 @ bar/20 1x5 @ 70 1x3 @ 90 1x1 @ 100 3x5 @ 110 very hard Deadlifts 1x3 @ 100 1x1 @ 110 1x5 @ 120 (mixed grip). Both were hard, the squats very hard. It's not that surprising, I hadn't done it for 7+ days. I also think maybe I did too many/intense warm up sets...

    Good workout: only managed to run for 10min (half at 8kph, from 5' to 10' at 9kph) and I didn't follow this exact order, but good training still!
