Bench
Bentover Row
Seated OHP
Pull-ups
Graviton Pull-ups
Tris and Bis

Being able to do a pull-up again was one of my goals when I started, almost a year ago, now. Being able to bang out a couple sets at the end of a workout is the best feeling in the world right now.

I feel like my endurance might be improving some. No increase in any of the weights or the volume, but it felt better, and I feel good right now. Tbh, I'm surprised that I'm not more tapped from yesterday's deadlifts, even if they were relatively light at 5x5.

Workout was cut short, because I didn't feel like driving to my normal gym, and the commercial place I lift closes at 10. I'm going to try to discipline myself to do some abs. Annoyed that I get a chance to close out with some carries.

Squats
RDL
Belt Squats
Razor curls
Reverse hypers

All of the hamstring stuff feels very novice. Like I'm not getting good activation. Or maybe there's just not much there to activate. I was told they looked alright, so whatever. Started loading my squats. Felt good.

Did abs w my an wheel, at home, since this is Monkey Island - monkey see, monkey do Feel like they'll be sore tomorrow.

All in all, volume is starting to feel better. I don't feel like running home after my third exercise, so that's good. Still can't get myself to stick around for calves.

I'm going to start learning o-lifts. I figure I can still the movement parreens, at home, with a bar and two 5kg bumpers, and not mess with my recovery. No specific plans for actually training them, for now, just getting the motor activation train rolling.

Upper body.

My overhead press sucked, and I'm not sure why. Seems strange, after a weekend off. Shrug.

I had to leave the gym before doing arm iso, so I did pull ups at home throughout the night, until the concentric got rough. Once I was only good for a triple, I switched to singles, with five second negatives. My arms felt pleasantly rubbery by the time I was done.

Ab roller two days in a row turned out to be a no-go.

I feel like I'm growing, but I don't really track.

Legs.

Focus was on deadlifts, today. I was getting feedback, so I did a lot of them.

Followed with safety bar good morning, reverse hypers, leg press, leg curls, leg extension, seated calves. I was pretty trashed after the deadliest, though.

Still sore from the abs.

Got an early morning, tomorrow, so I may take a rest day, before hitting upper body again.

I did upper body but didnít bother to post about it.

I hope I start growing soon, because Iím certainly not getting stronger. I do feel like I feel fuller, in some places, shoulders in particular.

My abs are finally not sore, from last Monday. Iím going to do these 1x / week, to start, and bump it to 2x / week, a few weeks from now.

Iím tightening up my diet. Always getting at least 75 go PRO per meal, remembering to take my fish oil. I think my carb intake has been low, too. I need to stop being slack about it and weighing myself more often, so that I can adjust if Iím under shooting my calories.

Lower body. Nothing special. Iím getting more comfortable handling volume on the squats. Endurance is going up.

I feel like Iím getting better at loading the hams, on my RDL. And my grip endurance is improving.

Thought I was recovered from last weekís abs, but the ab wheel hurt like .... I guess Iíll put it off another few days. Frustrating. Eating went well today.

First day of upper body went great this week, strength and endurance both up. I think I mustíve been at maintenance, until recently. Upping carbs.

Last night was my hams-first leg day: deads, good mornings, speed squats. Tried some stuff after, but was hosed. Did get in calves, actually.

Today my lower back is sore. Which means the weekend is probably going to suck. Did upper body, tonight.

Good week.

Week went really well. Pushed poundage up rather than volume. My endurance is getting better. Started doing metabolic stress drop sets for bis and tris, kind of just for the fun of it. Felt good.

Endurance is up on my deadlifts, which I suppose is probably my best overall measure of increased work performance. I've been doing my hams-forward legs day with a coach, because I'm not young and dumb enough anymore to subject my back to my idiotic intuitive sense for big lifts. I did belt squats and leg extensions for quads, because I wanted to leave my back alone after deads and RDLs.

Found my scale and the battery was dead. Bought batteries only to find that I need a tiny screwdriver to change said battery. Weighed in at 219.8 on the scale at the gym. I need to fix my scale at home.

I am very happy that I've been cranking out pullups, at the end of my upper body days, if I've been doing them at 220.

I guess I'm only five weeks into this workout. Feels like it's been longer.

Week five is done. I feel like I'm getting fat. If I were smart, I'd have been doing cardio this whole time. I haven't been doing cardio. At all.

I *am* doing abs, calves, med delts, and arms, so there is that. The week itself went well.

For my quad-forward legs day, I've been doing high volume speed squats as my main lift. Weight is increasing on those, I'm enjoying it.

Endurance on my deadlifts is going up. I followed those up with front squats. After that my lower back was toast, which was fine, because I had a guest with me and wanted to get out of there.

I think my back might be my most noticeable progress, this week. Not in terms of size, but I'm starting to feel much more stable on certain lifts, particularly my bentover rows, overhead press, and pullups. Pretty much across the board. Feels good.

I'm traveling next week, so it may be a bit of a back-off week.

Tonight was quad-forward lower body. Squats and RDLs as my primary lifts.

216 when I weighed myself at the gym.

After months of practicing after re-learning my big lifts, Iím finally adding weight to the bar every week on my squats, and RDLs feel amazing. I feel squats a lot in my glutes, right above my crack, almost to the point that itís uncomfortable. Not sure what thatís all about. My hamstring endurance isnít as good as my quads, which bothers me a little.

Added hip thrusters to my workout, tonight. Going to make that a regular thing, for a while.

Overall my legs feel great. Thursday is supposed to be hams-forward legs, but Iíll be on the road, and I have no idea if whatever gym I find will be happy with me deadlifting. Iím sure they wonít have a belt squat or safety bar. Going to have to wing the workout.
