    In one word, squatting.

    I've tried it with barbell on my shoulders for the first time ever yesterday and I liked it.

    I think I'll simply choose on of the proven linear progression schemes that are around,
    start with it and let myself surprise.

    2.5.19

    Goofing around the gym continues...

    Squat - started with empty bar, went up to 100x2 where bar speed slowed down considerably
    so I left it so. I won't do much more anyway, 5 kg or perhaps 10 kg, but not more.

    Press - plan was to do 5x5 with 70 kg but it did not happen, to my disappointment.
    It went 5,4,4,3,3. Oh well. I think I'll try to 'sort of max out' next time to see where I stand.

    Parallel grip chin ups - 5,3,3,2,2

    Hanging knee raises - 2x10

    That was it for today. I'll try to figure out some plan to start on Monday - or not and I continue
    to do whatever I like.

    Hey @masa thanks for asking! Everything ok, it's just that my schedule is a bit erratic right now.
    I planned to start the Faleev/Tsatsouline routine but they just began to move the gym to the new place
    this week and will be closed down the whole next week. Consequently, I am doing whatever comes to my
    mind while being there - e.g. yesterday I did just singles of C&Ps with 80 kg bar for about an hour.
    Sore from head to toes today. After it'll all settle down I'll finally start the linear cycle.

    Today was press day and it went as follows:

    Barbell press
    50x5
    60x5
    70x5
    80x2
    85x1
    85x1

    Those 85 kg felt pretty good but I do not think there is 90 in me, yet.
    Concluded by 3x10 of rows on machine. Note to myself: try old plain
    barbell rowing. Overall happy with 85kg max.

    I was really determined to squat today, I really was.
    Instead, as some of the readers of my diary might had already guessed, I pressed.

    4.6.2019
    Press
    50x5
    60x5
    80x1 - the bar flew really fast that gave me an idea to try
    90x1 - yep! (PR)

    Concluded with four sets of biceps curls and left.

    Nice!

    What is your typical training a week like these days?

    Nothing like typical training week so far. I realized that there is no sense in starting any linear cycle
    before the end of summer. Consequently, whenever I have time and go to gym, I typically focus on
    one main lift plus some assistance, which consists mostly of curls or chins or some sort of rowing on machine.

    Congrats on the press PR, buddy. 90 kg is a helluva lot weight.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Press it. (y)
