    That sucks about the loss of muscle on your leg.

    A 290 something in weight is like a 290 something bowling

    Depends on the sport. SHW in Powerlifting is 308+, strongman is 231+ (there is only LW and HW), Armwrestling SHW or unlimited class is typically 220+ maybe 242+ with a zillion weight divisions underneath.

    Once my left leg returns and I'm back on gear I'll zip right back up to 320.
     
  8. Combat sports usually have it at 100kg which is 220ish lbs. Give it ten years and there will be another at 125kg. I have seen SHW women's judo before- scary women, like 5'8" to 6' and 300 to 330lbs. Of course, that's at least 60% fat, and they are double the class weight limit. Would Rockman like that?

    Bunch of upper body and lower stuff, strength sucked shit because I pressed two days ago and did heavy AW work yesterday. Dumb but I was going nuts at hone with NOTHING to do.

    Seated military no back support, best was 275x5, did one rep that felt awful and racked it. Couple down sets

    Dumbbell laterals

    High rep pressdowns

    Lying leg curls one legged 4x10

    Calves on leg press, 3x20 one legged

    I'll do my pull-ups Wed morning then a two day lust fest with the gf for early Christmas, then I'm off to Cali on Friday.

    Threw a bunch of 2L water bottles in my backpack and did pull-ups at the park, pause at chin over bar and bottom as always, 2 sets of 3-4 reps then one burnout set of half/ 1/3rd reps with the backpack. Killer training, blew me up. Backpack about 25 lbs.

    Going to start doing super full range dips again too pausing at bottom and top. Lean forward head down for max pec/shoulder involvement.

    One arm push-ups just bodyweight last night. 55 each arm. Better than ever but I'm lighter so maybe that's why. Whatever. I'll take it. I can put on my weighted backpack for more resistant next time. I felt these much deeper than even dips. Chest tris and delts 100% out of commission after one set each arm of these.

  13. Do you worry about sets/reps or is that not a big deal for pushups?

    Of course I keep exact records of reps. What gets measured gets improved.

  15. I was meaning is it just a case of doing as many as possible or do you have a rep/set scheme for the pushups.

    Couple warm-ups with two arms, pump out 15-20 reps, then when I'm ready it's one max rep set each arm.

    Elbow pain when pressure is on triceps past 90 degrees but i went to the park and did half reps on dips, lower down, pause, back up. Knees up and head down to make it like a bench press angle, 3 sets. Insane INSANE pump and no tricep or elbow pain. Front delts obliterated too, I don't think I need any direct delt work as long as I'm doing these.

    The pull-ups I do blow up my side and real delts too, traps... So I will just take a break from direct delt work for now.

    Elbow getting much better, bruising on the tricep gone and elbow pain at a minimum. I was able to do full range dips tonight. Pause at bottom, etc. Huge YUGE pump, then big meal. Really the best feeling in the world. Equal to post-sex probably better because nobody is there to irritate you afterward.

    Finger is still fucked though, I have athletic tape around the top of my index and middle finger to keep the hurt index from being pulled sideways out of joint. Definitely a decent sprain.

    At the park before work I hit 13 dips, extreme stretch full rom and big pause at bottom and top. Last time only did 12, and elbow is getting better. One down set with some pump lockout reps to blow everything up. Done.

    Saturday is my first time doing floor deads in forever! One top set then one down set lots of reps.
