    Going to start a blog again, mainly to look back on in a few months

    Going to be training for size more than powerlifting in the next few months. It'll be a nice change, ill still be hitting the weights heavy though.

    Current PBs - 205/130/220 (My bench and dead would have been higher than that, but they are competition PBs(the ones that count )

    Will be training DC style for a while, have done this in the past and responded well.

    I'll get pictures up soon.

    Have had trouble with my back for a while now, my seat bone keeps going out of place (I think thats what the physio said was happening!), so ill be taking it easy with the deads for now.

    20 rep squats soon too

    Next session is thursday

    title sounds so gay

    I love it. It hurts, but it feels good in a sick kind of way.

    Not sure if it actually does anything!! It apparently helps with growth, but I defo think it helps with injury prevention too by getting a lot of blood into the muscles.


    There are the pictures

    I don't do the shoulder one as can't feel it

    the others are killers

    Asked a physio on uk-muscle what the problem with my back is, as I keep forgetting what my physio tells me. This is what's going on:

    He probably thinks you have a sacroiliac joint problem (sometimes called SI subluxations, dernagements, dysfunction etc).

    To be honest it could be, but more likely it is either a facet joint or disc strain (based on pain studies of LBP using selective pain blocking of different structures in guys of yur age).

    What probably happens is that he measures your pelvic heights (eyeballing and palpating) and finds one is a little higher than the other. Diagnoses SIJ problem and then manipulates.

    You get a crunch (air cavitation that makes the pop, increases joint space making joint feel looser and your brain releases some endorphins to reduce pain). Then you move around OK which settles things down a bit, rest up a little and bobs your uncle your OK.

    The key is to try and find out why it keeps happening.

    Somehow your stressing a structure too much and getting a reaction (pain). You have to find a way of reducing the strain thats causing the problem. The obvious way is to stop what your doing (kind of thing your GP says). The next thing is to change the way you're doing it (technique, trianing methods) and the last way is to work on improving the efficiency of what you're doing (thats where all the various stability, core strength stuff fits in).

    I can't really go into the exact nature of what you need to do, because this is all hypothesis (although a good one ).

    If you're ever down this way, then stop in. Otherwise talk to him about how to try and reduce the incidence of this happening. That should be stuff you can do for it. If he can't offer you much advice including rehab methods, then move on for that part of your rehab and find someone who can.

    Not doing DC for a little while, made my own program (whilst being bored over christmas) and will do this for a few months and see how I get off.

    Today was some upper body hypertrophy

    Bodyweight 3x10 - easy enough, very short rests, will add weight when in the unigym as I have access to a dipping belt there

    Rack Pullups
    2x10, 1x8 with 5kg added. More weight next time

    Seated Cable Row
    50kg, rest paused for 10/5/4 - I lean forward when doing these, a lot harder and can lats get one hell of a pump

    I then spotted my bro squatting for about 30-40 mins

    Incline Bench

    Very easy, didn't do more weight as I was starving and not much energy - 60kg for 5x5

    Incline CGBP
    50kg for 4 x 6 - again very easy. Couldnt use flat bench as it was in use

    I'll be alternating sessions like the above with power sessions, where I'll be going for new records on the squat, bench, rack deadlift and a few others. Also will throw in a real high volume session
