    Thanks guys! The squats really just seemed to come together for me in that workout. I really felt like I could have done 295-300+. Nice and low too, not ATF, but they were good

    Hey, it still came up, though! I've definitely hit a bit of a rut with my bench. I think now is the time when we need to eat more!

    Bench:

    DB lat should raises:
    20s x6
    22.5s x6
    25s x6
    30s x4

    245 went up easy and quick. I wasn't going to bother increasing it today because I only got 3 reps in at 235. But figured might as well just push it a bit, I'll just do it for a single. I probably could have gotten 2-3 at 245. I would say my 1 rep max on bench probably pretty damn close to 275. Going to start pushing myself a bit more on bench - up till now I've been taking it easy on bench just letting my lower body catch up some.

    Congrats on the PR! 275 feels really good, and looks good on the bar.

    With that kind of volume leading up to 245, and still smoking it, i'd say 275 is yours.

    Still Alive

    Sorry for not updating, I do have my workouts logged just don't have time to post them right now.

    Long story short I finished off that last week, took this most recent week off (mostly due to work but figured my body could use a bit of a break too) and went back today for a light full body workout. Will be back at it as per usual this week!

    Hey all. Figured I'd check in briefly. Things have been busy this summer, but fortunately I've still been hitting the gym just as consistently as before.

    Since I hit, what I consider to be a major milestone today, I figured I'd check in.

    Shortly after I started this journal and began to lift consistantly (this was back in February I guess) I sort of had decided on making a goal of having a 1000lb total by the end of the summer. At the time I didn't know if this was a realistic goal or not, but today I met that goal! I had never done a barbell deadlift, and practically had never done a squat (definitely not properly) before I started coming on this site. Today my current max lifts are 275 Bench, 365 deadlift and 360 squat (this is the pr from today that hit the goal).

    My training pretty similar to what it was before. I do one major lift each day, bench monday, squat tues, oh press thurs and deadlift fri (I actually swapped deadlift and squat days this week). I alternate weeks going for reps up to 6, and going for heavy singles. It's been working well for me. I throw in accessory lifts that somewhat resemble HCT after the main lifts are done.

    Some people may have been aware that I did a fair amount of cardio in the past (I rarely logged it). The reason is that I have a good friend who runs marathons that I run with fairly frequently. I think it was about a month or two ago that after a few too many beers in discussing with her fitness and working out I made a boast that I could run a marathon if I really wanted to. Long story short - she's holding me to running a 1/2 marathon. So I am registered to run my first 1/2 marathon in october, and am actually running a 5k in september to raise money for breast cancer. This past wed was the first time in awhile where I've ran without putting an hour of lifting in first. I did 8 miles in an hour and forty-five minutes. First 3.2 were run/walked with the gf (who just started running and is doing the charity run with me), then I continued on by myself. Yes I'm slow I don't intend to get much faster either haha. The good news is that the endurance is coming along in leaps and bounds.

    How have I been balancing the running with lifting? Well, if you recall - I alternated my lifting styles each week. One week for reps, next for singles. The week for reps I'd focus on endurance running after my lifting, putting in an hour at least. The weeks I was going for singles I'd do "sprint" intervals.

    Anyway... going forward. I'll be lifting less for the next month and change, will be really putting some more effort into the running. I want at least one 13-14mile run before I actually do the half marathon. I don't care about speed too much, I'd be crazy happy if I finished in under 2 hours, but I feel like that may be unrealistic. Come winter I plan to focus on lifting and bulking. Spring I think there may be another marathon in the cards, probably a full one this time. lol
