    15 January

    Frequency push ups – 1 x 11 (more like infrequent…)
    OHP – 5 x 6 x 45kg RPE 6.4
    Chin Ups – 5 x 6 x 5kg RPE 7.1
    Dips – 6 x 5kg, 4 x 6 x 10kg RPE 6.6

    17 January

    Hex DL – 5 x 6 x 100kg RPE 6.4
    Chin Up Ladder (1,2,3,4,5) – 15, 12, 13 reps
    Dips – 5 x 6 x 10kg
    Circuit (5 burpees & 10 pressups, 10 rounds) – 9 mins 46 secs

    Trying out more things, have a decent template for this six pack training but still testing. I didn’t like 5 x 8 but 5 x 6 is nice, and 30 total reps for an exercise is in the recommended range. The idea behind frequency press ups is to only do enough that you aren’t tired, and spread them across the day so there’s minimal fatigue. I’m not in the habit of them so i’ll have to tie them to an activity, like a set before preparing food or brushing my teeth, in order to remember to do 5-6 sets.

    I’ll start the proper training on Feb 1st as that will mean the day after my “six week abs” will be my birthday.

    22 April

    Vertical Jump Test (tip to tip on a wall with chalk)
    Standing reach – 225cm
    Jumping reach – 280cm
    CMJ Vertical Jumps – 50cm, 52cm, 55cm @ 69.4kg BW

    Power Cleans – 50kg x 4,1,1,1,1,1,1
    V-Sit ups – 3 x 15
    Clap Push ups – 2 x 10
    Lying Leg Raise – 3 x 15
    3 Way Planks – 3 x 90 secs total
    Prone Hyperextensions – 3 x 10

    I finished a 70 day cut and was down to around 68.5kg by the end. I had a sizeable cheat meal (2600kcal) and also had a night out with work on the Thursday, so calories varied hugely. I did my best to steer my average in the right direction and ended on P165 C219 F106 Cals 2500 for the week (Mon-Sun).

    Going forwards the target is P150 C190 F80 Cals 2100 with more carbs on workout days. When I brought my calories down for the cut (see Six Pack in Six Weeks) I had really good mental clarity when carbs were around 170-190g and it’s something very valuable to me in my line of work so I want to try that out long term.

    The next self-experiment will be improving my vertical jump, specifically through 7 weeks of Vert Shock. I’ve looked through the four workouts it’s based on and included some of the ab exercises today (22nd) to get used to them. I’ll be doing two weeks of general training before I run the program because i’m really busy the weekend after next and couldn’t squeeze in the vert shock workouts.
