I have actually, would I just post the videos here or in the digital coaching section?

Putting them in digital coaching will get the attention of people who know what they're talking about and typically respond to videos.

Re: Packish to Big Dawg: Sebastian's Log

Friday September 10

I've noticed that working out later in the day has me going into the work tired which is really interesting considering that I try to get a fair amount of sleep in the night. True i've been walking around a lot lately because of my job but its not like my lifts are suffering, its just kind of like a general lazy feeling. Oh well, here's how today went.

Warm Up

Squat
55X5
75X4
95X3
105X2
120X1

155X5X3

Bench
55X5
75X4
95X3
X2
X1

125X5X3

Clean
55x5
60X4
65X3
70X2
75X1

100X5X3

Chins
BWX6X2
X4
X1

Curls
55X10X3

The squats were hard, but its the end of the week so i've got my two days to recover. I let my balls drop and went up another ten on the bench and, I gotta say, it was still completely under control, I think that 130 next week will not be a problem. The cleans were a wham, bam, thank you ma'am ordeal and I'm officially into triple digits. radical. the last round of chins sucked so I added some curls at the end to strengthen. I'm going to let that sit until this coming wednesday and see what happens.

Monday September 13

Did pretty damn well considering I was coming off a horrible night of sleep.

Warm Up

Squat
55x5
75x4
95x3
115x2
120x1

160x5x3

Press
55x5x5

85x5x3

Deadlift
55x5
95x4
115x3
125x2
135x1

200x5

Dips
BW 5x3

My middle set on the squat got kind of shaky but I really killed the first and last set so i'm not too worried. my last set actually came out with my best form of the entire workout. The press got hard today, got to work on controlling the weight throughout the whole movement. The deadlift was not as difficult as it was last time but still challenging. The last two reps aren't a question of "will I be able to do this" yet so I feel i've got some good gains left in the tank. GOMAD is easy as ****, don't even really have to think about it. Weighed myself on Sunday to find that i'm an even 180 so i'm up roughly twenty pounds in two weeks and am five pounds from my goal weight but I want to be that in lean muscle mass so its another three months of this for yours truly balls.

On another note, I'd like to get resetting out of the way before it becomes a problem. I'm about to hit 170 on the squat, which is or is five pounds over my current 5 rep max and, ergo, anything beyond that is uncharted territory. In fact, i'm going to start hitting PR's in pretty much everything minus the press come next week. My question is, when can I expect to be resetting and what exactly does resetting look like for a novice like me?

Re: Packish to Big Dawg: Sebastian's Log

A reset in this case is a 10% decrease in weight on a particular exercise, once you have attempted a given weight three times without making it. But I wouldn't worry about "getting it out of the way" just keep going until you can no longer make the same weight after three attempts, then do it.

But if you're GOMADding correctly and recovering well, you shouldn't even have to think about resetting yet. For example, let's say you get to 295lbs on the squat (and if you're doing the program seriously, you should be able to without resetting). Then let's say the next workout you go to 300 and you only make three reps on the last set. Next workout, reattempt the same weight. If you attempt it three workouts in a row and can't get it, reset the lift in question by 10% (so in this case you would reset your squat to 270 (which is 300-10%).

I, too, have been in the position of making it into totally uncharted territory with my lifts. Just keep it going as long as you can, and get big and strong.
