yeah whenever in my mind i mock you (and other brits) for complaining about temperatures that wouldn't even register as hot in a DC summer, i remind myself that we have A/C and y'all don't.

i give it a few years before home A/C is widespread over there. it uses a shitload of electricity but when the alternative is for it to be 30 degrees inside...yeah. thanks climate change!

Hah, yeah. I enjoy complaining about the weather, but when outside I really don't mind the heat. I suppose when I talked about in the past re running, it was just because I was so used to 10 C weather.

Inside, though, being this hot is bullshit.

BW - 70.6

Workout

Pullups
BW x 3
10.5 x 6 x 6

Hang
24 x 5s, 5s
21 x 5s, 5s
18 x 5s

Repeater (6 on : 10 off)

Notes

Pullups easier than the first 6x6 workout despite feeling overheated and fatigued AF.

Rest of the workout relatively perfunctory, obvs not really the focus at the mo.

BW - 70.7

Workout

Pullups
BW x 3
+8 x 1
+16 x 7 x 5

Then did a few rounds of a circuit of weighted pistol squats, kneeling ab wheel and hollow body hold

Notes

Occurs to me it looks like I do very minimal warmup, but I do a whole circuits of stuff that I am too lazy to type out each time.

This workout was hard, but still made it. Rest between sets of pullups is getting long. The double gonna be tough, but I'm looking forward to it.

KB OHP
16 x 18+7+4

Notes

That was a lot easier than expected. Feel like I am just more suited to super low reps, so even the diff from 3 to 4 makes a difference.

Final week coming up, gonna be intense.

Workout

Pullups
BW x 3
+11.75 x 5 x 6
+13 x 6

Pushups
BW x 22+5+3+3

Notes

Was pretty manageable with +11.75, so I decided to push it on the last set. Was RPE 9.5 probs.

Three workouts to go.

This morning I was fucking starving. Been eating normal amounts, but maybe that double-header kicked in today and I just needed food galore.

BW - 71.8

Workout

Pullups
BW x 3
+8 x 1
+16 x 1
+26.5 x 10 x 3

Notes

First set was like RPE 9.5 or so, so that was a toughie. Finally done. It's just so many sets, lmao.

Looking forward to some restful days. Haven't really planned how/if I'm going to do a peak, might just take like 4 or 5 days off any pullup training and then do a normal 1RM attempt, instead of anything fancy.

BW - 71.9

Workout

Pullups
BW x 3
+8 x 2
+16 x 1
+24 x 1
+32 x 1
+40 x 1
+45 x 1
+32 x 2, 2

Hangs
24 x 5s, 5s
21 x 5s, 5s
18 x 5s, 15s, 15s, 15s, 15s

Notes

Decent gains from Smolov, I guess. Think I have more in me, but hype was extremely low. Not really recuperated much since I finished the programme, since big rain led to big roof leak into my flat, so been exhausting and psychologically draining dealing with that.

Only like 2 or 3 kg off the total weight PR I set a few months ago, though 52.5 @ 66.9 sounds a lot better than 45 @ 71.9.

Back to normal training now. Think I'll go for strength/not focus on weight loss for a little longer, then maybe try to drop back into the mid-60s, now that workout habit is back.

Yeah, lol, definitely happy with it / not as annoyed as I sounded in yesterday's post. Think my view is weird by the feeling I need to be up at like 1.85x BW for my goals.

Been training intuitively for a long time, since I was fitting stuff around climbing. Since I'm probs still gonna hold of on climbing regularly for another while, I might as well try to get back on a more regular routine. Haven't made one in a while, so thinking of something like this:

Monday   
Pullups   Easy single
OAC    a few negatives
Pullups   3 x 2
Hang    4 x Long
Lattice   2+ cycles

Tuesday   
Planche Lean   3 x Hard
Pushups   Myo
Pistols   3-5 x 4-8

Wednesday   
KB Row   3 x Lots
Lattice Core   2+ cycles

Thursday   
Planche Lean   3 x Hard
KB OHP   3 x Max
Pistols   3-5 x 4-8

Friday   
Pullups   4 x 6
Hang    4 x Long
Ab Wheel 3 x Maxish

Decent amount of work on secondary things like pushing, legs and core. Then there's a semi-restful mid-week back day, intensity at start of week and volume at the end. Can be flexible with which days happen when, but feels like a reasonable structure for now.
