The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Hell yeah, bro. I haven't been eating well, so i'm inadvertently on a cut, but, mass wise, I've never been bigger. I'm on day 2 of GOMAD again, I want to get up to 185 before the end of the year.

    Haven't really been keeping up with my log as well as I should be.
    I went to the gym for a random little session yesterday and here are the basics of what I did
    Bench
    185 x 4

    Incline bench 135 x 13

    Incline DB press 80 x 4 (rep pr)

    Thanks man! I notice my accessories through the roof at the moment, but my compound lifts are fluctuating like crazy. Except for bench, which is consistently dropping. I'm gonna try to get a video of my bench and post it up to see if I'm doing anything wrong which might be hindering my progress.

    Decided on a full rest week. I crashed my motorcycle again, this time on a low-speed turn, slipped on gravel and hit my knee. Very little skin damage but my patella feels sore. I'll get back on next Monday when I get back into the gym.

    Wow, unfortunately, I've really been slacking with keeping my journal up to date. School was the most important thing over the past month, but now that my summer semester is over I can finally get back to doing what I love- lifting with consistency and with much less injuries (I've been getting roughly 2-3 hours of sleep a night on weekdays.) I was constantly moving around, lack of eating due to adderall. Basically because school was my number 1 priority this past month, I had to temporarily put everything else on the back-burner especially toward the end of the semester (cramming for finals). So excited to get back into the regiment.

    This past monday - still amazing myself with my lifts lately

    I gotta say that I'm making A LOT of progress on the lifts through the BGB routine on this site, strength and hypertrophy. I salute you, MariAnne Anderson.

    Oh yeah man, she definitely set up a great plan, with the very minor tweaks I've made I'm getting so much stronger in all of my accessories, my physique is improving, all the good stuff. But honestly, I can't wait to get back to Madcow so I can focus on my compound lifts. It'll be a big difference since I've been working on the isos a lot more than i have in the past.
