Ah yes ... I've been there myself. Hard to get people to learn from our mistakes but I know how you feel with the shoulders Matt. Nice to see that you are still active though.

If you look in at the Creaky Mod Thread, you will notice I have a goal to get to 350 lbs by December with my Deadlifts so that I can equal your previous best. Was that 350 lbs a single Deadlift or multiple Deadlifts?

It was a single, and *ahem* it was 380lbs. I wanted to get 400 lbs so bad, but couldn't quite make it.

LMAO. That was about 8 years ago. I probably couldn't bench 200lbs now (where before I had a 265lb one time max), and I would be lucky to do 300 on deadlift. I am currently using 235lbs for 6-8 reps on deadlift.

But don't worry, Crablord. When I started lifting weights at age 14, I couldn't even bench 100lbs. Keep at it, and you can make huge improvements! Just don't over do it!

Tried my first Tabata workout today. Started with a 6 minute jump-rope warm-up. Followed by 5 intervals on the heavy bag of 20 seconds maximum speed/power punching and 10 seconds rest. I could have gone a bit more, but didn't want to over-do it on my first try. Ended with my normal 8 minute Pilates cooldown routine.

Surprisingly, I wasn't quite needing a puke bucket after the workout. Although I was very sweaty and out of breath. I did spend the next half hour coughing up phlegm with lungs burning.

I will try to add more intervals next time.

Yes Tabata heavy bag is sweet. Try this one
Tabata:
Heavy bag - 4 intervals
Push ups - 4 intervals
Crunches - 4 intervals
Heavy bag again - 4 intervals

This isn't a long workout but its fun. See how good your hitting power is after the push ups and crunches.

Tabata-fied my workout from the first post.

Started with the normal jump-rope warm-up. Then went into 1 twenty-second set of weights fast'n'hard as I could do them safely, with a 10 second break in between each excercise. 8 different excercises (but no jump-rope in between, as in the original post). Repeated the entire set, then 2 minute jump-rope cooldown, followed by 8 minute Pilates cooldown.

Nice, hard, short routine. So out of breath/amped up that I could only eat half my normal breakfast afterwards.

Sorry to hijack the thread but how do you make one set intense enough for great gains? Or how many reps and percentage of 1RM should you use? Also, does that count for your warmup to?
