Thanks Bryce, appreciate the reply. Will start purposefully on form and gently ramp
If you have a rack and a barbell, you can set it up something like this https://youtu.be/7KXsFvooId0
Bands, fat grips, cuffs, chalk, lacrosse ball, small roller, EAAs 👍🏽January 7, 2022 at 2:38 pm in reply to: Log booking/RIR/ and progress in muscle mind connection! #215770
Personally I have trained for long periods of time without logging my workouts and made great progress over time and made great progress tracking my workouts. When I am on a programme I prefer to log my workouts but I don’t beat myself up if I am not beating reps and weight every week. When I was running Wendler 5/3/1 I would find I often didn’t peak when the programme was testing my rep max. The quality of the set and the amount of effort I am putting in is just as important to me. Sometimes the weight just won’t go up, or stalls for a period of time.
Sometimes thinking too much about tempo or reps during a set can be distracting and taking a step back from just the numbers and logging can be a good mental break.
Intention during a set and effort are normally better markers for me.

It is pretty close, a band Pulldown could be another option. But it is a fair workout around for home training.
I’m maybe stupid, but can’t see any updates?
You will need to update the app through the AppStore/playstore
I have young kids and had less than optimal sleep for years. Anywhere from 2-7 hours a night. It will never be ideal, but it can’t be helped. I would just look at other ways I could compensate. Good nutrition, additional recovery methods, listening to my body e.g. maybe not maxing out the next day on a workout after a night of a few hours sleep. Then trying to balance stress in other parts of my life. It’s not forever and the body can adapt.

I workout from home and don’t have a cable, so I am doing chins using rings.
Progress to something with more variety and a bit more advanced like the upper lower programme or your better half.
Thanks Bryce, that helps a lot.
I had a question along the same lines. I just started upper/lower and am training at home. I have a wide grip tbar attachment for a barbell. Would it be better to do the free standing row at the beginning of the workout when it requires supporting structures and they are fresh, then the chest supported DB row near the end when they are fatigued, so needed less? Thank you.
