    Attempted Journal

    I'm going to attempt a journal. I don't know if I will keep it up to date but lets see how it goes.

    At the time of writing I've just completed 10 weeks of SS, 2 days a week. I've put on about 8kg on a bulk but I'm not happy with the results as I put on a fair amount of fat. I'm going to cut my calories back by about 300 a day and see how that goes for a while. I'm also looking to bastardise the SS routine a little (or a lot), which I will post below.

    During my 10 weeks of SS I have discovered my body responds quite well to training each muscle group 2 days a week at lower volume (I have seen pretty solid gains in my legs as I've been squatting twice a week).

    Here is my routine:
    Day 1:
    Bent over row

    Day 2:
    Front Squat
    Standing shoulder press (or just 'press')

    Day 3:
    Back Squat ATG
    DB Row
    DB Bench (perhaps decline)

    Current Stats:
    Weight: 110kg/242lbs
    BF: ~20%
    Bench: 145kg/319lbs (estimate)
    Squat: 160kg/352lbs (again, estimate)
    Deadlift: 170kg/395lbs (yes, estimate)

    Goals are 110kg at <15% and a 500kg big 3 total.

    I'm trying to stick to 3300 cals a day with a breakdown something like 330g protein/110g fats and the rest in carbs.

    Here we go!

    Today was the first day of my new routine after 10 weeks of SS - I know I should've done it for longer, but my goals have changed a little so I'm going to try this for a while.

    I trained at home today because I missed yesterday as the gym was closed.
    Lunges 3x10 steps x 65kg
    Bench 3x5x120kg (actual was 5, 4, 2)
    Bent over rows 3x8x60kg
    I have no where to do chins so I had to skip.

    I am definately going to be sore in my hammy's and glutes from the lunges, maybe a little sore from the rows also. But generally I don't suffer much in the way of DOMS.

    As far as food goes today I was under my target on protein and over on carbs, which isn't uncommon but it doesn't matter so much because I set them a bit out on purpose. Overall I hit just over 3400cals.

    Today's diet has already gone down the toilet! I had a performance review with my boss and he ordered us pizza!

    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.
