Looking very good dude, props.
Looking very good dude, props.
Seems you make good progress and gain some serious mass, Keep up the good work!
Thanks guys. I'm taking the next few days off. I'm pretty sure I have the plague :drooling: Hopefully by Wednesday I can get back into the gym. This sucks :bash:
Nothing exciting. Spent the weekend moving all the heavy stuff from my rental house to the new house. I've got almost all my stuff set up in the garage so I can train at home real soon :)
I like training at home too. Hope the PLAGUE doesn't get you down :evillaugh:
Getting sick sucks and you do lose a fair bit of weight, but I always seem to put that weight back on quickly. Get well soon, bud.
Thanks Jesse. If I didn't have all this moving crap I'd probably start back today. Checked the weight and I'm at 223 in work clothes. So I didn't lose as much as I thought. May get in the garage tonight and play around a bit just to test out the new set up.
Hope your better soon mate, liftings looking good. Haha I live for deloads too so don't worry about looking forward to them!
Been missing you up in here Matt, time to get back to it bro.
Feeling much better and getting really antsy. Moving into the new house tomorrow (hopefully) and then starting ASAP. Hopefully I can get started in the next few days. Thanks for the support :)
Good luck getting back into it. You've got alot going on. Moving sucks and to have to do it coming off the plague makes it worse.
All that stress has consequences on the lifting for sure. Stay with it you'll be back on track in a few workouts.
You must be working on a nice home gym to be quitting Powerhouse.. I've always wanted a home gym

Still gauging where my strength is. Power cleans were UGLY but I'm definitely a lot stronger than the last time I did them. Going to do some squats and OH pressing on Wednesday to check those out. Should have my bench in about 2 weeks. :)
Nice workout in the cold. All this global warming hasn't helped with the STL winters much. I wish I had the discipline to workout at home. I need to get in the car and go somewhere to make sure I do the work.
Glad to see you resume things man.
Thanks guys. Overall bad idea to go out there without a plan, but it did feel good to do something.
You got out there and put some work in, that's always a good thing, good job! Man I can total understand the cold workouts, I swear I could see my breath this morning in my garage. Glad to see you are back at it!
Nice return mate, you must be well exicted about your gym? A buddy over here has just set one up in his basement and I think I get just as giddy about it as he does. Get yourself a huge sound system, you'll be smashing through PRs in no time!
Nice job fellow garage gorilla.

First workout of my 5/3/1 cycle. I'm taking it a little easy on the assistance work. Going to do sets of 10 on whatever the assistance work is as long as I can maintain an RPE of 9 or less. As you can see it didn't quite workout on the french press. Some limitations to what I have at home but I'm sure I'll work it out soon enough.
Worked out in the garage, which is great. My wife and daughter were chilling out in the living room and I just walked over the garage got it done and came back. Much easier than going to the gym.
That's a magic garage. Two workouts and two PR's. Hope you didn't think I wa inviting myself to your gym, nonetheless
thx for the invitation. Could be fun sometime when I get on 531.
