Notes
New max on BB Decline, thanks to two buddies who are more than willing to be good spotters. Happy about that. New max on the DB Inclines, and that’s a no-spotter lift so I was very, very happy being able to press 65s. Not two months ago I was struggling with 35s.

No complaints on the other supporting lifts. Hit what I wanted so that’s that. A little bummed with the weight gain but some of that is water from the morning, and some of that is my usual atrocious Saturday fun day diet. Should get back to normal by Tuesday after lifting. Also got a few compliments from other gym regulars who work out in the evening again, so. I’m filling in. I may need to reasses my goals to see if 175 is a realistic weight or maybe I should try to get as ripped as I can at 185. We’ll see.

Notes
Huge improvements on the FS; very happy with those. Did an extra wide leg stance per a trainer’s advice, and I did back squats with him today. Definitely breaking at the hips and not the knees. There’s no strain on the knees at all. However, it’s going to take some getting used to and it will be like doing squats again for the first time.

Snuck in some cleans because I felt like it. No surprise on the overnight weight gain. i went drinking last night.

Chest tomorrow.

Notes
This is one of my biggest back workouts to date. New actual 1-rep PR on TB Deadlift, so now I have to add volume to 325 and try to pull off 345 twice next week. New max on rows, same max shrugs but more volume. Had to stop the lat PD midway. Torquey shoulder was acting all torquey. BCs were rough, mostly because of the way all the other exercises squeezed my palms and affected my grip. I might move BCs to leg day all together. Pull ups, same problems. Also, torquey shoulder.

Nice touch with the high volume sets too at the very end, too. Cardio tomorrow. Legs on Sat. Will update then.

Notes

Another Tuesday that felt really off. Woke up with my entire body feeling sore and tight, and I woke up late. Got to the gym and just knocked out what I can while being late to work for an hour. Nice numbers on push press, though. 165 was a nice milestone. Shoulder still felt tight and torquey but not painful. Lateral raises are fun. Cardio tomorrow. Next update on Thurs.

Cardio: Elliptical, 45 mins, 778 cal

Notes:
Probably one of the best chest days I’ve had in months, and I’m very happy with the numbers. Made a poor decision going nuts on the triceps extensions, I think I torqued my shoulder forward a little bit on the 100lb bar and it affected my incline press, both BB and DB. Threw the rest of the lifts for a loop but I worked through it.

It was also Super Bowl Sunday, and I partied it up with a lot of alcohol and more food than my usual intake, so I wasn’t surprised with today’s weight readout. Just have to own up to it and get back to work. Which brings us to today’s workout:

Monday, Feb 4 2013
Weight: 189.2
Cardio: Elliptical, 37 mins, 619 cal

Notes:
Last night’s chow included: a falafel sandwich and hog hammers, 3 beers, five stiff cocktails. I am totally not surprised with the weight readout. I also had breakfast: waffles and eggs. Workout was at 11am, and I have the combined weight of breakfast and a bunch of water and all sorts. I am kinda excited to see what my weight will look like tomorrow.

After a week of relaxing a bit, going back to 18 hour IF. I have been coming close to my target weight and I am close to my target measurements. The funny bit on Sunday was when I had spoken to one of my regular gym friends and basically admitted that I don’t know what to do next, especially when I do hit my target weight of 175. It’s going to be all diet and getting stronger from there: leaner meals, even fewer carbs, and bigger lifts. Cannot. Wait.

Notes:
Personal crap details: Went to a late evening party last night. Someone slashed my tires and I got help from a friend but didn’t get done until 2am. Got home, woke up at 7 to go to car shop, got new tires, then worked out, on four hours of sleep.

Going to take a wider stance on the squats next week after getting tips from a few buddies. New maxes on fronts, so that’s good. Cross grip is actually worse on my delts than clean grip, so I’m not doing that again. New maxes on leg curls. Filled in the BCs because I had to skip them on Thu.

Chest tomorrow. Need my rest too. Looking through past few logs here I sure as heck haven’t been getting enough rest. Not good.

Cardio Elliptical, 41 mins, 697 cal

Notes
Worked out off of 5 hours of sleep and less than 12 hours from last night, so I was a little tired this morning and I knew I wouldn’t have been able to go for volume without gassing out and getting frustrated. Chased maxes instead and crushed it.

New max on TB Deadlifts, which have always been an old love of mine. Switching to these for the most part, as I can shrug them and use another BB for rows and I can circuit these three rather efficiently. New max on rows. New max on shrugs. Next week will have to add volume on those maxes and try to go up a bit.

Just cardio tomorrow in the AM, will post alongside my Saturday leg workout.
