Not much shoulders, unless paloff press is shoulders.Created a new plan, need all of your expert opinions. I'm obviously an expert also but need this to be peer reviewed. Currently I'm doing two boxing classes a week and another session at the boxing gym which is just an open workout, so on that day I combine lifting with boxing.
So it'll look like this - Monday: gym, Tuesday: boxing, Wednesday: gym, Thursday: boxing, Friday rest, Saturday lifting and boxing, Sunday rest.
I've tried to hit each body parts as much as possible, but it has to be noted by motivation for lifting is basically zero right now and has been for ages. So I've picked the exercises I like the most and have made sure I won't be in the gym for longer than an hour to an hour and a half. Also concentrating on rest times a lot to improve my fitness for boxing.

COLOUR CODED IT BUT CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO explain and also typed that in capitals but can't be bothered to retype. Is there anything overly wrong with this, anything I should add or replace etc.
It's def on the slimmer side. What's shit is now I'm nearly there it's clear I'd need to get to about 158ish to be proper cut. I just don't think I have the muscle mass to pull that off, tbh.Same
Same, and I do think something around 75kg/165lbs is ideal for us. We're probably about the same muscle mass, I guess. I weighed that in the summer and was happy, a fair amount of fat still but the definition was clear. I went down to about 161lbs just before summer really started and looked awful, so 164-166 is probably the sweet spot. Shame I now weigh 175lbs, ffs.
Luckily I'm a pure ride with a handsome boabie so it doesn't actually matter, just talking ideals here.
I think my thought process there is I'm boxing 3x a week which uses the shoulders heavily, I don't think I'll need to do any lateral raise fluff. Still OHP on day 3 when I do power cleans and press, though. Also delts will get hit when doing benches so I THINK I'll be OK.Not much shoulders, unless paloff press is shoulders.
When i was a wee guy I'd find pieces of glass and think they were diamonds though, so bear that in mind.
Yeah getting down to 165 won't be a problem and I'll probably do it next summer. I'm kind of enjoying looking a bit bulkier in clothes now though especially with winter coming. That's the thing living here, nobody will see any part of my body apart from my head and hands until April next year, ffs.It's def on the slimmer side.

I was 175 about 5 or 6 weeks ago but the weight has come of easy. Probably too fast, tbh. Is this new way of eating. Basically high volume, low calorie eating. I'm always full and have plenty of 'treats' in there like PB&J wraps and ice cream, both under 200 cals, and all sorts of other good shit that's really filling/big but low cal.
Opposite for me, man. Roasting all year and even on the odd occasion when it dips down to like 21, and all the Floridians are cutting aboot in boots and scarves, my good Scottish genes are still roasting at that temp so I'm still in just shorts and flip flops. Basically gotty be on it 365, man. The pressures of being a pure ride, man.Yeah getting down to 165 won't be a problem and I'll probably do it next summer.

Done a full body supersets -ss- today...think I'm back on them.
Squats 4x6 (at the weight i done last time 4x10, ffs) -ss- incline lat raises
Inc bench -ss- body rows
Inv chin up -ss- DB tri exts
Fuck supersetting squats and RDLs, man. at most i'll superset lat raises with any kind of squat.I rarely do them but my fave supersets are these two:-
Front squats/Romanian deads
I’ve been in some serious fucking pain after just doing either that upper body superset or the lower one for a few goes. I never know what sets/reps combination to do with them or how long of a rest to leave though.
Yeah it’s not fun. It’s just a quick way to get a lower body day done if I’m short of time.Fuck supersetting squats and RDLs, man. at most i'll superset lat raises with any kind of squat.
I love sessions like that, you go in with a bit of apprehension, play it safe, it feels easy and so you smash one out the park and go beyond what you thought you could do. 280kg beltless is bonkers considering how much time you had off.So I originally wanted to do 275kg but decided to do 272.5kg because 275kg seemed risky, anyway I did the 272.5kg then thought fuck it and did 280kg beltless. Very pleased.
Cheers mate, surprised how quick pull has come back to be honest I'm hoping on a perfect day with a belt I can hit 290kg before I start my cut. That's the shit thing about how I do things, I just reach a new high on strength but then lose it cutting.I love sessions like that, you go in with a bit of apprehension, play it safe, it feels easy and so you smash one out the park and go beyond what you thought you could do. 280kg beltless is bonkers considering how much time you had off.
After doing about 6 months of high rep deadlifts, the only advice I would give here is to not do them. They're shit.My new routine’s 4x10 on everything, mainly because I’ve been doing 4-5 reps or lower on everything for years now and it’s fucking me up all the time. I’m going for lighter weights until Xmas.
1: Front squats, OHP, Row, Back extensions
2: Squats, Pullups, Bench, Pullovers
3: Deadlifts, Dips, Lateral raises, Tricep kickbacks
4: Assault bike, KB swings, Farmer’s walks, ab roller
I did session 2 the other day and it was fucking hard work. I’ll see how it goes but I might have to move a couple around. I’m finding that my heart rate’s up for the whole workout and I’m proper sweating. I never really had that with the 5x5 stuff.
