Monday 21st January 2019 
I took a bit of extra time warming up in the house today.  It meant I needed to drop the rows but well worth it.
 
Band Rows -- X rows
x 25 reps
x 25 reps
x 25 reps
 
Band Face Pulls
x 25 reps
x 25 reps
 
Band Triceps Overhead Extensions
x 25 reps
x 25 reps
x 25 reps
 
Overhead band squats
x 20 reps -- I may need to replace the band I use for these as it was frozen today and needed to be warmed up before I used it. 
 
A1 Seated Pin Press
bar x 20 reps
60kg x 5 reps
80kg x 3 reps
100kg x 1 rep --Damn that was harder than expected but I'll take it for an untrained lift.
 
--Reverse bands on
100kg x 3 reps -- Absolutely killer on my triceps, much harder than the standing version.  I like this, it's exactly where I need it.  Goes to show how much of a weak link my tri's are compared to my shoulders.
85kg x 3 reps
85kg x 3 reps --Not sure how much band tension I'm using, forgot to measure it. 
 
A2 SSB Squat
60kg x 5 reps
90kg x 5 reps
120kg x 5 reps
120kg x 5 reps
120kg x 5 reps --These all felt a bit funky on the first rep.  Need to adjust to the SSB again.  I think I'll stay light for th time being but increase to 8's.
 
band pull aparts (at home).
 
Short and sweet today.

The look on your face with reverse band press tells the story there. They look brutal.

Nails thought I would start off with the red ones first as these are the more likely ones to give you problems when they kick off or what they call start expressing themselves.
 
MAO-A R297R this one is concerned with the breakdown of serotonin, dopamine,epinephrine,nor epinephrine basically it breaks these down so they don't build to excessive levels as to much of these neurotransmitters is never a good thing and results in mood swings,easily irritated,anger and even violence.nausea and gut problems.
 
As you are homozygous for this one it could be running well below par and in turn can't clear chemicals so in turn they build up.Do any of these symptoms make any sense to you?
 
Possible supplements that could help increase the speed of this gene are b5,b6,progesterone and bcaas.
 
MTRR A66G this one is in charge of how you methlyate (or use) b12 ,you could test normal levels of b12 on a blood test but if your not methlyating it properly it can let homocysteine levels to become elevated.Also not a good thing could possibly lead to heart problems,dementia,depression etc.
 
Again mutations in this gene effect how its running so supplements to try and overcome this are methlyated B12 and also because it works in tandem with folate a methlyfolate supplement would also be of benefit.
 
BHMT 08 I will be honest info on this one is a bit sketchy at best ,it appears to be responsible for converting homocysteine to methionine.As its homozygous this conversion isn't happening to well ,leading to again higher levels of homocysteine and low levels of methionine which can lead to depression,edema,skin lesions,fatty liver etc.
 
Now this one I wouldn't use a supplemental form of L-methionine as if you take to much it then gets converted over to homocysteine and let's be honest that's the bloody last thing you need.
 
Diet should in all honesty get your levels of methionine back up ,below a link to food sources 
 
https://www.myfooddata.co...h-methionine-foods.php

 
Mthfr although your not homozygous for these genes I still think with the number of yellows its worth having a look at.This one basically turns folate into methlyfolate which your body can use and folate has so many uses in the body if your not converting very well it can lead to a host of various symptoms anemia,fatigue,lethargy, mental health problems,IBS etc.
 
The main approach is to supplement methlyfolate and avoid anything that contains folic acid as when it can't be converted it builds in the body which can lead to other problems.
 
That's all I have for you at the minute bit rushed for time so thought I would sort the important ones first LOL.
 
I know you'll probably read a lot of conflicting info on this DNA testing but its relatively new and a lot of research is going on and is starting to show especially on the mental health side of things a lot of people who say are schizophrenic for eg are actually showing a lot of the same mutations in their DNA.
 
It could be worth getting your homocysteine levels checked just to see if they are actually elevated.Then you will know if these mutations are actually coming into play
 
And then look into methyl B12 and methlyfolate supplements and avoid anything with folic acid in it as a starting point.
 
Hope this helps mate always about if you need anything else its never a problem

Wow cheers for that mate, much appreciated.  It will take me a little while to digest all that, the thing that jumps out at me immediately is IBS.  I do suffer and have learned to eat around it but it would be much better if it was not a problem.

I've been looking at a way to overload pressing for a while and this is the best I've come up with so far.  It was a bit of a shock TBH, I expected to be able to go a bot heavier.  The reality is it hit my weak points hard and forced me to use more triceps power.  I never feel overhead in my triceps but it is where I fail.  basically this is a great lift but for different reasons than I envisioned.

Yeah it was a bit nippy, you're just down the road from me and that's the same time I was out training.  It just takes a bit more warming up in this weather, nothing special, happens every year .
 
These presses were hard for me, they hit me where I'm weak, that's what's showing.  But we all know you're slacking off if you can control your face when you lift. It will be interesting to see what carryover I get to my standing presses.

Epic trap bar pulling bud, I really want to try one out!



Thanks mate, I resisted going higher today, I really want to have a good crack at 400 for a triple in two week time (next week will be a lighter week).  I perhaps should have gone a touch heaver today as I think I could have got about 6 reps if I'd needed to do so.
 
I actually think you'd had it mate, it uses a lot more legs than s straight bar.  Since you have an epic back and an epic pull to go with it, I think you'd be a fish out of water. Well worth a go and perhaps there's gains in the difference but personally I think you'd prefer the good old barbell.  It's all the reasons I love the trap bar in reverse.  Oh that and it's just a fantastic general strength builder.  I feel like I could walk through walls after a few weeks with the trap bar.

Strong pulling mate 

Thanks mate, I actually held back a bit today as I don't know what impact this sort of weight will have on recovery.  Forearms and upper back do not like me today and keep telling me every time I move.

I'm over in  outskirts of Chelmsford.
 
It was a bit of a shock how weak my tri's are in comparison to my delts.  Always great news to discover something like this though as it something to work on and improve.  I feel like there needs to be a balance; working on a weakness is great but its also important to improve on strengths.

I've only used the trap bar a couple of times, great tool. I was suprised how it was all legs, as the back is locked in and more upright from the start. Its currently in the wrong half of the gym is use though atm the moment so unable to use it. Hopefully get it back soon.

It's one of my favourite bits of kit, such a strong position for me.  This also carry's over to real world strength.  I tend to burn out quickly on deadlift so I need to cycle in different versions to keep things moving.  In terms of specialisation that's not great but in terms of expressing strength at different angles it's great.  
 
Once I've achieved my goals (i.e. maxed out the bar) with the high handles I'll flip it over and start working on the low handles.  I'll be a lot weaker but that's how progress is made.

When I was still doing deadlifts the trap bar was much more forgiving on my sciatica. Definitely puts your back in a better position. Had to sack em off in the end though.
 
Epic lifting though mate!

Huge pulling mate! I wish my gym had a trap bar.. I’d love to start doing some proper weighted carries!

How many times a week do you train krav? Does your lifting ever affect it much? Heavy shoulder work makes punching really painful for me so I try avoid it before training! Shows I need to build up that lactic threshold tolerance
