Default Re: The Great White Hype's Road to the Fights

3x5 Squat 235lbs, 240lbs on last set (PR)
1x4(failed on 5th rep) Military Press 115lbs
1x2(failed on 3rd rep) Military Press 115lbs
2x5 Dumbell Overhead Press 50lbs
3xF Chinups
3xF Dumbell Pinch

Between doing bench/overhead press one day and pushups the next, my shoulders aren't getting enough time to recover as evidenced by the fact that I'm feeling weaker every time I do the military press. From here on out I'll be dropping the heavy lifting from 3x a week to 2x a week. I'll be replacing the middle of the week heavy lifting with a 3rd day of LSD work until I get my resting heart rate into the low 50's (will take a few months).

Yesterday was my weekly rest day.
After 4 weeks of this my resting heart rate has dropped from 68bpm to 60bpm (at 7500ft elevation).

My squat and overhead press stalled and regressed over the last week. I'll be dropping the weight down by 10lbs on them, add 5lbs a week, and in theory hit a new personal best by New Years.

Morning
6k run at 65-75%MHR
4x2min rounds shadowboxing (45 sec rest)

Evening
3x5 Squats 230lbs
3x5 Bench 135lbs
3xF Chin ups
2xF Plate Pinch
2xF Dumbell Pinch
