Keto Chow 1.5 update – almost there; Finally missed reps on StrongLifts

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Weight Lifting

So first the good news: The roll out of Keto Chow 1.5 is nearly complete. Rather than list what is updated to 1.5, I’ll just list what isn’t:

Weeks

  • Chocolate Fudge

Samples

  • Banana and Butter Cream Toffee (as they’re discontinued but I still have some)
  • Chocolate Mint
  • Snickerdoodle
  • Vanilla
  • Cookies & Cream

Days

  • None. They’re all switched over.

 

Now for the bad news: Up until last night I hadn’t missed a single rep doing StrongLifts. It was inevitable that I would and it finally happened. Last week I was able to finish the full set of Overhead Press doing 95lbs but doing 100lbs was too much for me, even resting 5 minutes between sets:

Well, life moves on. The kids asked for Strawberry and Peanut Butter keto chow today.

    Overhead press was the first one I failed. I bought some micro plates from amazon and I have been increasing it one or two pounds at a time. I’ve been increasing my squats at 2 pounds a workout for a while, but on Monday I failed my first squat rep. I did 260lbs 5x5x5x3x5. The last set of 5 was after an almost 10 minute break and it still wasn’t easy. I’m surprised that I made it as far as I did. I get to try it again today.

    Failing a rep is kind of demotivating, but the plus side is that if you fail three times, then you get to deload and take a little vacation where the lighter weight makes you feel super strong.

    Honestly once you start lifting legit weights a 5×5 program is for 19 year olds with unlimited Testosterone. You’ll probably move to a 3×5 for those of us 30+. I was able to still make real gains until I got to like 365×3 Squat and 315×3 Bench. I never took any weeks off and got tendonitis issues in 3 body parts at once. Don’t forget to rest your ligaments!
