Fine stuff, in a good place man.
I like the way you structure your workouts. Focus on the big 3, keep it simple and only do a few key accessory exercises.
Thanks a lot guys. Always appreciate the support.

Have tickets to farm aid for tomorrow, but looks like some thunderstorms coming through. Ugh.
Really liking the training Matt.
Thanks coke. Farm Aid was great, got to see most of the performances. Looks like quite a bit of it is on you tube. Neil Young Fans, check out his new song, Ramada Inn. This wasn't from the concert, as the only one I could find was just a minute of the guitar playing.
Video
I'll search and put some more vids of farm aid up in my log during the week. As for training.

Being a trooper about it dude, lol...hope that shit with the shoulder clears up soon.
I hope so as well. I pushed training back a day to accomodate my workout partner, as they were sick. He actually decided to take the whole week off, so now wish I had not done so. Just gonna hit 4 days in a row to stay on schedule. 2 weeks until the cruise.

are you still running sheiko joey? how far in are you now/how many and which cycles have you run? im looking into it for after my next meet. Think the change could really put some lbs on my total before the end of the year
Nice squat session!
I did 29 and I think 37? for 8 weeks total. Switched back to 5/3/1 for these next 3 weeks, as I am heading to Bermuda the week of 10/21. I would highly suggest giving it a go as long as there are no nagging injuries you are suffering from.
