    Pretty good workout today. Was kinda bummed it wasn't a heavy day, both my main girl and my backup I asked out for valentines day who both seemed enthusiastic yesterday ended up flaking on me so I was pissed off, but didn't get to lift anything heavy. Whatever though, girls can be like that sometimes, I just decided to go higher volume for a deload, blew off some steam. I've been leaning out a lot, I feel my testosterone going up as a result. Sitting at about 200ish so I've lost probably 2-4 lbs of fat and maybe even gained muscle, because I still look big, if anything bigger, with a shirt on, and my strength is still going up. Still eating a lot just not force feeding as much, and I always eat clean, I think it might just be seasonal, the body seems to naturally lean out more when the temperature starts to rise and pack on more fat when it starts getting cold. Temperature could also be a reason why I feel higher test. I ate about 8 meals yesterday, I've already had 5 today and plan on eating 2-3 more. Anyways...

    Front squats were good, nothing heavy so not really a big deal. Inclines were good, felt very strong, chins were ok, I always get worn out on high rep chins, especially because I was doing them back to back with inclines. Ham curls were good, dips were solid as fuck, definitely gaining strength on those, partially due to weight loss and partially due to strength gain, then my run was good too, I thought my cardio was getting bad but it's actually getting better! Going home this weekend so I"ll be training strongman and kempo on sat.

    Pretty good weekend back home, very relaxed training wise, except for the keg PR. Eating has been off and surprisingly sleep's been a bit off too cause I've been getting back home late, but otherwise everything's good.

    Pretty good day today, squats were strong as fuck although I couldn't fix my buttwink. Instead I just set up without such a drastic arch, so my spine isn't changing position, I like squatting like that better actually although I definitely feel it differently. But my back and ass don't hurt so bad afterwards so I'm sure it's not unhealthy, and I still felt strong doing it this way. I was starting to get tailbone pain from buttwink before, but it's not hurting right now which is a good sign. Bench was great, I think part of it is the fact that my buddy I was benching with got the narrow bar so everything felt incredibly light. I'm not complaining though. Felt very strong with 220, probably could have gotten 12 if I didn't do the pauses. Was only aiming for 8 and paused the 8th, but it went up so easy that I did 2 more pause reps. Then I did 135 for a set of 30, fun stuff. BSed some leg extensions, did some DB bench, DB rows, everything went well, ate, then ran a mile. Overall a good day.

    Front Squat/Inclines/Chins

    Front Squat
    5x185
    5x205
    8x235 (10 lb PR)

    Inclines
    5x115
    5x145
    8x165 (in line with my best 6 rep, 175)

    Chins
    10x25 added (2 rep PR)

    Ham Curl
    4x12x75 (PR)

    Dips
    3x12
    1x25 (Big 5 rep PR)

    Face Pulls
    50 reps

    Good day today. My lower body has felt incredibly sore, my hips feel so bad right now. Been taking fish oil now but my hips still feel like shit. Been stretching a lot, in fact my right hip I got it to pop super loudly twice these last 2 days. Not sure if that's good or bad. But my back doesn't feel as bad as usual so I guess my little tweak to my squat technique is good, I think a lot of the hip problems are from skateboarding. My left ankle has hurt like hell too from skateboarding. Not meant for heavy people. Anyways, got PRs on everything today even thought I thought I felt weak. I just didn't feel very intense today, I think I know why but it's irrelevant, nothing detrimental for the future. Front Squats were one of the few lifts that didn't feel weak, but it just felt painful because my lower body is all effed up. Didn't push past 8 reps but I could have, just sat deep in the hole on rep 8 and did a long pause, then drove it up. Inclines, since my upper body was so sore, felt really heavy. Even 115 felt heavy. But I managed to grind out 8 clean reps with 165, paused the last one. Chins were good, felt really weak but managed to squeeze out 10 reps. Each time I do chins I feel weaker and weaker but when I look at the numbers I'm actually getting stronger. Chin technique hasn't been super strict, no swinging, but my knees always come up a little. I still think I'm getting stronger because that's always been there, but I guess if I entered a comp that would not be a good thing. I'll get it under control eventually. Finally, hamstring curls were good, definitely finally getting used to this movement, gonna get my hamstrings big and strong like this. Dips were incredibly strong, I thought they'd be weak because inclines were, but I got a massive PR on them. So I'm stoked.

    Fun story, the other day I forgot to mention I went to the dining halls in a wife beater/tanktop whatever you want to call it, after the gym, and everybody was eyeing me, my friend told me that when I got up two guys were talking about me and using words like "unnatural" and "steroids". How flattering. Also forgot to mention I did a paused single with 245 on bench yesterday between 220 and 135, since I got high reps on my top 5/3/1 set. Overall training is going well, getting leaner bigger and stronger without changing much of anything besides working higher reps, only eating when I'm hungry-aka not force feeding myself in the name of bulking, and doing cardio here and there.f

    Huge set on the dips.

    And few things are a better boost than being accused of juicing when you're actually not, lol.

    Good story.

    Few have it, many don't - plain and simple. Count your blessings. It's gonna get worse with the 'haters' as you make further strides. This is just the beginning for you though, being you aren't even 19 yet.

    2-23-13: Deads/OHP

    Deads
    3x315
    5x385 belt
    6x435 belt (30 lb PR)
    1x405 belt 25 sec grip hold

    OHP
    5x95
    5x125
    8x140 (5 lb PR)
    1x155

    GMs
    2x10x135
    2x10x155

    DB inclines
    4x10x55s

    BB Rows
    4x10x135

    Rear Delt Flyes superset with side raises
    2x15x10s

    Pretty good day, deadlift PR wasn't really a PR, just never gone as high as 6 reps. Deads were all right though overall. OHP wasn't very strong but still a PR, in line, maybe a little weaker than my other best lifts. GMs were really good, decided to finally start going heavier on those. Inclines were good, felt the isolation really well, rows were pretty weak, a little disappointing, although I haven't done them in a while. Flyes I was running short on time so I just winged it and did light weight high reps.

    2-25-13: Squat/Bench

    Squat
    3x265 low bar
    3x265 high bar
    3x295 low bar
    3x295 high bar
    3x335 low bar
    5x335 high bar (5 lb PR, last rep paused)

    Bench
    3x185
    3x215
    6x235 (5 lb PR)
    12x185 last rep paused

    Pull Ups
    BWx8/6/6

    Pretty good day today, went balls to the wall on both squat and bench and had no energy afterwards. I know my lowerbody will be incredibly sore tomorrow because I haven't done low bar squats in ages. Since the squat rack was being used I did a nice 10-15 min long stretching warmup so my technique was perfect on both types of squats. I actually kind of like low bar, besides the fact that it taxes the hell out of my back. I think I'm going to swap out good mornings on deadlift day for high rep low bar squats, or maybe just go by feel, that way I get the same benefit of GMs plus I'll get used to low bar squats again, and maybe make the switch back. But yeah I had no buttwink on either type of squats at all, it was amazing. Bench was pretty good, got a meaningless 5 lb PR but nothing to be ashamed about. I might have paused the last rep with 235 but I probably didn't, but I know I did with 185x12. Bench wasn't feeling too strong today, probably partially because I low bar squatted before hand which taxes my shoulders a bit and pumps up my back to the point where I can't get as much arch and if I do then I cramp on high reps. Had a lot of trouble lifting off 235 surprisingly. Tried to lift off 275 just to work heavy lift offs and couldn't do it at all. Felt incredibly worn out after these 2 so I half assed some pull ups then got out of there. I'll probably do some face pulls heavy tomorrow and light the day after tomorrow to make up for it. Also probably going to go for a run on Weds. Overall I'm happy because my strength is going up but I'm leaning out, and my BW is staying the same, around 203. Oddly enough my cardio seems like it's getting worse in some ways better in others, I get winded sometimes just from walking even though my mile time is getting better, and I need to take really long rest periods lifting sometimes when it's hot. Might just be the heat though.

    Good day today, lots of PRs, good stuff. Just really pissed off right now because my roommate locked me out and the emergency key at the front desk wasn't there so I had to wander around like a fool in my towel after taking a shower trying to find my roommates until they finally showed up 30 mins later. I can't blame him because he's autistic but I"m still just really pissed off, all the shit he does that I normally tolerate, this finally made me snap. Anyways, no need to write anything more, good workout today.

    The roommate(s) is quite lucky to have you, make no mistake. Good deal on being extra patient when called upon to do so.

    In a nice groove with all lifts.

    Pretty good day today. Went with a good friend of mine who's the definition of beast, he's incredibly huge, 220 lbs, thick as fuck, he's the guy spotting me in the 365 squat video. Really humble guy though, even though he's hitting 425/330/550. He hit that 550 on deads today, and he's only getting stronger. Crazy stuff. Anyways he convinced me to pull 495 after my heavy set so that was good =). I might regret it next week but whatever. Also might add that I used the thin bar, so I did thick bar rack holds afterwards, held 405x25-30 sec. Tweaked my left shoulder a bit on that but it feels good again now. One thing that's been bothering me is apparently I'm contorting unevenly on my OHP and GMs. Gonna have to find a way to fix that...

    Everything else was good, had a lot of rage going into training today for reasons I don't need to discuss, but I was able to channel it productively into a solid session!

    Great gym session today. Went a bit earlier in the day because something happened that made me really angry this morning, I had to go to the gym to vent. I'd share the story but I don't want to feel like I'm whining over stupid emotional shit, I'll just admit it's a girl thing. Popped an ephedrine just to get that extra kick and make the gym session even better. Went balls to the wall on squats, 350 was supposed to be my top set and I killed it for 3 solid reps. Went up to 370 to try to get a 5 lb PR on my 1rm and killed it for 2. Went up to 385 and did a deep, slow, paused, controlled rep. The grinder on the way up was the worst grinder of my life, took 10 sec to get up, but I managed to keep good form and get it up. My eyes and face were the reddest I've ever seen afterwards. I felt incredibly happy with this PR, best squat of my life, well below parallel, no buttwink that I noticed, slow, paused, controlled, no contorting to the left that I noticed (I started to but managed to stop myself), went into it with paradoxically confident anxiety, that great but rare feeling, and nailed it, grinding it up for what seemed like forever. Did a drop down set just because all my heavy sets were very low reps, and I didn't really have much of a pump. Besides, 20 rep squats may be more painful than quad extensions but they're much funner.

    Bench obviously suffered because of balls to the wall squats, felt pretty weak and on my last set, my hips were so pumped and tight from squatting so my ass came like 3-6 inches off the bench, but I still managed 5 ok reps. Not worried about it. DB bench was good, felt a good contraction in my chest on most reps. Got some decent back work in to make up for the heavy pressing. Had some extra time so I worked on my 2 worst muscle groups besides my rear delts, my forearms and my calves. Got a good soreness/pump in the 2, will probably be really sore tomorrow. I went in feeling incredibly angry and I came out feeling amazing, great gym session today. After lifting like this, you feel nearly invincible.

    3-7-13: Front Squat/Inclines

    Front Squat
    8x260 (25 lb PR)
    3x300 (25 lb PR): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiqMjO91nbc
    2x315 (40 lb PR): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZG-ZYopeew

    Inclines
    worked up to 8x185 (10 lb PR)

    Rear Delt Raises and upright rows
    a bunch of sets between sets of other stuff, probably at least 5 sets of each, most 10 reps, some as high as 20-30

    Lat Pullovers
    5x10x50

    Pretty solid workout today. So that girl who I got pissed off about on Monday, I finally got her off my mind then out of nowhere I see her at the gym today. I've never seen her at the gym before, the entire 5 months I've been training here. I was happy with my 260x8, she left in the middle of the set and either didn't see me or was avoiding me, but seeing her inspired me to go heavier, I jumped up to 300 and smashed it for 3 (last rep paused), but I was still pissed off, so I hit 315x2. I got videos of both. Was still residually pissed off so I went hard on inclines, got a 10 lb PR, 185x8. Was really drained after blowing my load on the first 2 exercises, and my left bicep has felt a bit funky since benching on monday, so I didn't want to go heavy on chins. In fact, even nonweighted chins hurt. So I'll need to stretch that out and take some fish oil. I just did some lat work instead. Then I also did some upper back/rear delt work sporadically between sets.

    Also feeling a bit under the weather. I no longer have access to a scale but I'm probably hovering around 200. Abs are smoothing out a bit but that could also be because I mixed a big serving of creatine into my protein shake yesterday. Only took it just that once, just for the hell of it, just for the GH benefits. It might have helped me hit these PRs today but I don't know. Doesn't matter, I'm just gonna keep lifting hard and getting stronger, that's my primary goal. I've been slacking on the cardio though, might do hill sprints tomorrow if I feel like it, which I probably won't. But I need to find some way to do cardio.

    I guess the positive from the whole girl situation is it's giving me a lot of fuel for the gym. And I've realized I"m just going to have to accept her for who she is, accept myself for who I am, and accept the situation for what it is, and stop trying to change things, and just go with the flow. Just 1 more heavy session on Saturday, might bump that back to Sunday if I'm feeling too sore on Saturday, and do cardio on sat instead, then deload next week, where I'll be making up for the lack of volume work this week.

    REALLY strong front squats!

    And congrats on the back squat PRs the other day, too. Sometimes a bit of aggression can go a long way, lol.
