Hello all,
Just starting with the OMOB program ( week 2). I have a dumb question. When counting down you do a set at the 1:00 Mark. Then the time goes to 0:00. Do you do another set then or are you finished after the 1:00 set? Personally, I have been doing that final set just to be safe.

Thanks for any help

I use the Tabatta Timer app, for 10 min emoms I set it a 10 minutes which gives me 11 sets, I do the same with the 12 and 15 min emoms also.

Ok for say a 10 min EMOM I set 10 mins with a 10 second prep time
So clock starts I got 10 seconds to get ready and when the clock hits 0 I start. So basically I stop my EMOM at 9 as watching the clock and stopping want seems to be 1 Round early tricks my body into thinking I still got more to give. If that makes sense.
My last word will probably be
"Whoops"
"Now, get off my lawn!" :angry:

+1 for an app.  I have an EMOM app on my phone and just watch how many rounds I need to complete

One other question. I'm following the one year plan. Do I increase the 1rm after each cycle? I am coming up on my deload week. When I start version 2 do I increase then?

Thanks for any help

Been lifting for a real long time and I've tried a ton of programs. I always like to make a point of doing them as close to perfect as possible. I like to think that's why I'm 60 and still able to pull a 500 lb Deadlift. Thanks again for the info

No such thing as a noob question. If it strikes your fancy, start logging your workouts on a page. We could all probably do well to tap into your experience & input.

Staring at 50 on the horizon. What's your shortlist to successful lifting?
Nutrition, rest, programming, strategy etc...

My motivation is that 4 years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes. I vowed at that time it wasn't going to beat me. I went to what I knew, lifting. The thing I've found since getting older is the almost daily pain. Once you get used to that its business as usual. I've always liked going heavy. Not sure why but doing sets of 2-4 reps appeals to me more then the high rep sets. I would recommend never thinking about your age and what you can't do. Be the one in the gym that others look at and say "look at that old guy moving big weight. I hope I can do that when I'm his age".

Tcassell612, this is what I'm talking about! Please start a log man!?! Whatever you do, however you post, nuggets are going to spill out, nuggets that I need. My body is 50 years old but my brain seems stuck in the 20 somewhere(I like to think that I'm all grown up) I started lifting in December 2014 here with OMOB so I still feel like a noob to the game. I feel embarrassed to admit that the stupid number 50 has had me second-guessing myself. I know it's part of the game but fuck, it's the truth(lol,I said but fuck). These other Silverbacks here Inspire the shit out of me. They are all strong as shit and their efforts stifle mine. The younger cats here are just amazing, ridiculous really, I love 'em. I do have something to rival these snotty-nosed Punk's and crotchety old bastard's though and that is, I will NEVER quit! I might piss and moan and let my ding-a-ling dangle in the dirt, but you won't catch me looking down!

You are the SIC (Silverback in charge) so I'll be looking for your log sir!

That is all

Sua Sponte ! Now Get off my lawn ! :angry:

Today's workout consisted of the following:
Leg press ( I prefer these to squats. Just my preference)
335x3
400x3
420x3
475x3
EMOM 335x3 12 cycles

Then I did something unusual. I skipped to week 3 because I won't be able to go to the gym tomorrow. So the second part was:
Bench press
185x2
205x2
215x1
225x1
EMOM 185x2 15 cycles

That was it for today. Hope this helps. This coming week will be different. Going away for a few days and I hope to be lifting at a Powerhouse gym. I'll post again on Tuesday.

Todd

Beastly work Todd!

I've got a ton of questions for you but first, let's ask you to go over to "Logs" and create a new entry there that you can update every time. That's where we all "hang out" and "do community" the most. That way we won't miss any of the awesomeness

The first entry is by Jerred himself and he gives step by step instructions.

15 sets of heavy doubles..I want what you're eating for breakfast!

Holy shit - nice DL man.  I'm with Pops - don't be shy sharing what's kept you healthy and at it so long.  I turn 39 in two days so keeping at it for the next 20 years would be great.
