Weighed in at 214, which is surprisingly high. I think it's the adjustment in meals (not being able to eyeball it correctly) and I've been eating a lot of pork steaks, which I'm not quite sure of the p/f ratio.

walk 3.6, 2.5, 17'

Squat 205 x 2 x 5, x 8 back was not feeling it at all. Which is weird because, aside from the last rep last time, my knee and back felt great. IT could be the different rack or face pulls in the warmup. Either way, I'll try both next time. Also, front squatting next time because I'm cutting my 2 days of rest to 1 and the back could use the break.

knee ext 80 x 2 x 15, up

bench 205 x 4,4,3 I think this is mental. 200 shot up. I also think it's the bar and getting my grip right. Either way, I've got 1 more shot

DL 155 x 3 x 3 hips shot up on the first rep of each set

chin down 150 x 6, 160 x 2 x 6, 10 min. walking 3.6, 2.5 between each set

walk 3.6, 2.5, 20'

Weighed in at 213ish today, which is good because I was up to 215 yesterday... don't know if it was the adjustment in meal frequency or my inability to eyeball it.... Since the adjustment, I'm almost always full.

yesterday did 3 x 23 bent knee raises and about and hour of stretching and mobility work.

Today was supposed to be a rest day, but I'm taking advantage of some upcoming time off.

walk 3.7, 2.5, 17'
OHP 142.5 x 2 x 5, x 6...maybe could have ground out another rep, but help the last rep for 4s instead. Did a good job hyping myself up on the last set
bent leg curl 60 x 3 x 12, too heavy
Front squat 115 x 5, 120 x 5, 125 x 8, trying this out to give my back a bit of a break.
DL 160 x 5
neutral pulldown 150 x 3 x 6, heavy machine
walk 3.7, 2.5, 10'
rope pushdown 60 x 3 x 15
walk 3.7, 2.5, 10'

Back up to 215.... I'm hesitant to cut because I'm cutting in a few days.. even bumped up my carbs a bit today because I'll be pretty low carb for a week or so.

bench 205 x 4, 3, 4... pretty upset I missed this. 3rd time
squat 210 x 2 x 5, x 8, transitioning into a hybrid high/low bar. I need to focus more on glutes
DL 160 x 3, 165 x 2 x 3
Pulldown 150, 160, 150 x 6
SS w/
leg ext 80, 85 x 15
db curl 17.5 x 2 x 10, 20 x 2 x 10
f-walk 110 ea, 110 both x 30-35 steps, PR

had this song stuck in my head

Up round 216.5. I got some good news yesterday and ended up celebrating. Couple that w/ a bit a of a carb up, and there we go. Nothing too crazy, some more carbs periworkout, some sushi, a couple light beers, a couple rice cakes, an apple and a spoonful of nutella.

Sore today... looking forward to some rest from the gym after tomorrow.

Still sore this morning, but back was feeling better. Weighed 215, so knocking out 5g protein/day... not much... may reduce fat, but not touching carbs. Woke up early, hot, and hungry for some reason.

Went for a light jog and did some conditioning:

total, something like
30 min. walk
10-15 min. jog
pull ups 3, 2, 1
chin ups 3,2, 1, 2, 3
13 box jumps
2 x 12 log squats
tire throws
several 10-15 yd sprints, basically acceleration work
don't think I over did it today like I usually do. I missed 1 box jump and I kind of took that as a sign to wrap things up.

back is feeling much better now.. ribs feel stretched abit too... i needed to get moving

turns out my gym membership is good for a few more days.

squat 220 x 2 x 5, x 8 adjustments: spread feet a bit more, back to pushing my knees out, pointing knees out more, brought my hands in... the only thing I think did anything was the feet spreading, which I have to be careful w/ my hip. Either way, I think I'm front squatting next time.
bench 180 x 2 x 5, x 10
DL 175 x 5
neutral pulldown 160 x 3 x 5, heavy machine
rev. ez curl 20 x 3 x 15
SS w/
standing calf raise 8 x 3 x 10

db hammer curl 15 x 12, 20 x 3 x 12

Squat 225 x 2 x 5, x 9, first set felt lousy the last 2 felt a lot better. Adopting a slightly wider stance w/ a bit more feet angle.
Bench 185 x 2 x 5, x 7, was going for 10, so that sucked, but I was kind of in a rush, so I cut my rest short and I lost my form a bit on the last set. Also, I was using a different bench that starts a lot lower.
neutral pull down 160, 170, 180 x 5, greasing the groove, light machine
DL 185 x 5
dips 10, 5, these were tough and I was in a rush so I could bike home before sunset.

Weighed in at 218 today after a few extra carbs yesterday: 1 cup of rice and some salad dressing. So, I cut 5g p and 5 g f from my workout days, which doesn't mean much since I'm taking some time off.

I went to planet fitness today. Truth be told, it was nice to be in someplace clean, especially the bathrooms, but it was way too cold. I was wearing a hoodie and a thick t-shirt and was still cold. I don't know how girls can run around in tanks and yoga pants. I also managed to set off the lunk alarm, haha... I'd probably be disappointed in myself if I hadn't, though it wasn't intentional. It did kind of solidify that I've moved beyond that since I was using the heaviest DBs.

I did a version of Wendler's busy hotel template because I'm weaker, I could still use the DBs.

Leg Press 10 plates x 5 x 20
BSSq - 20 DBs x 2 x 8, 25 x 8, first time doing these, but I noticed my right leg wants to cheat a lot more, so I have some sort of imbalance. I should probably do more of these.
Low Incline DB Press 70 x 5, 75 x 5, 75 x 10, set off the alarm dropping these on my last set... or maybe I was grunting too loud
OHP 60 BB x 10, 35 DB x 10, 60 BB x 3 x 10, delts were really pumped... probably the most I've had them
DB RDL 70 x 10, 75 x 3 x 10
Smith Rows 45 ea side x 5, 7, 9
F-Walks 75 ea and 75 both x 50 steps, slow
face pulls 20 x 3 x 20
tricep pushdown 60 x 15, 57 x 12
dips x 5

Weighed in at 211/212 today, which is great news because it means by baseline is down there and I was just a bit inflated. I still have a few more days off w/ a conditioning workout, so hopefully back down to 210. Eating a few more carbs periworkout today.
