  • Lifting stuff in the garage

    As a bit of introduction, I used to be a member here under a different username. However, after like decade of inactivity I have changed enough that I am not sure I want that to be associated with my current life.

    I'm currently running a Rest-Pause based PPL, andcand some body fat. In true IM fashion, my diet is based on Skiploading. I'm going to post my workouts and some of my Skiploading foods to get me through the week

            Some impressive weight being tossed around in here.
            Looking forward to following along.
            My greatest opponent is myself. Every time I walk into the gym, I have to beat the person I was before!

                  Axle Deadlifts 480*2; n/a felt a twinge in my lower back. May take deadlifts out of the rotation during the cut. I hate to, but I'm struggling with not re-injuring my lower back

                  ​​​​​Pullups 45*12+7+4; 75*7+4+3
                  Curls 125*8+4+3; 105*8+5+4 still struggling to find good form on barbell curls where I'm not artificially reducing weight but also not causing massive foramen pain
                  Axle Rows 300*7+5+3; 260*10+5+3
                  Rolling Thunder Curls 25*12+10+6; 35*7+5+3 these I am really liking
                  ​​​​​Pronated Grip Pulldowns 395*9+5+3; 340*7+4+3
                  Pronated Grip Cable Rows 340*7+5+4; 290*15+8+5

                  Although I hadn't baselined from last week, I ended up loading Friday night. Between staying up late with my family and realizing that the Saturday schedule gets all messed by the load, plus a desire to shorten the load this week, I made an executive decision. Probably not an optimal bodybuilding decision but ultimately I decided the sanity and family unity was worth the 12 hour change in load home. I also just like loading at the end of the week to both give me something to look forward to and to feel fuller through the weekend

                    Interesting day today. Checked in with what I am doing and thinking I am going to cut this hypertrophy block a little short. I'm just not enjoying my sessions, even though I thought I would.

                    That may not be the greatest reason, but I am orbitally primarily a strongman competitor. I
                    ​​​​think I am going to run Seb Oreb's Thor:'s Power Program with a few modifications (specifically a little added volume, as it's very low volume as written). Did a little bit of a bridge session today. Will likely start the program tomorrow or early this week.

                      Putting the finishing touches on the new routine. Trying to learn my lesson and avoid beating myself to death with volume right out of the gate. Fortunately the program also starts out relatively light for the main lifts out of the gate, so I may be able to give my joints a break before lowering the reps

                        Log press plus accessories. Topset of 180*8 (strict)

                        Interesting day. Glad to be back to back to strongman training. Tired.

                              ​​​​​​30 Minutes LISS Off/Recovery day today
                              Will be doing a one meal (2-3hrs) Skipload this evening. Definitely feel ready both mentally and energy/depletion wise.

                              Fired up the breadmaker to make some sourdough for burgers and will probably throw together some sort of dessert (either French toast or pancakes likely). Maybe an enchilada pie if I'm feeling crazy. Will also probably eat the sweet potatoes I have because...I like them and gotta stay "healthy"

                                How long have you been using Skiploading? I know you said in your OP that you use to post here way back when so I assume you have some experience with it. Is it something you have used regularly, when dieting, throughout your time here or something recent that you started to incorporate?
