    Progressive Overload

    Time for a new journal.
    I've stopped training to failure for a while due to possible cns burnout. I've also increased my volume a bit and decreased my time between sets. I'm going to cycle back into the high intensity low volume training in another month or so. I've found I can only handle training to failure for 5 or 6 weeks at a time before I start losing strength and motivation to train. I'm currently bulking and I'll probably stick with it until I feel too fat.

    The routine:
    Mon-chest/bi's
    bb flat bench
    bb inclinebench
    bb overhead press
    bb curls

    Tues-legs
    squats
    leg curls
    calf raises

    Fri-back/tri's
    chins(weighted if necessary)
    db rows
    skullcrushers

    OH press, bb curls, and skullcrushers are all 2 sets of 6-8 reps. All other lifts are 3 sets of 6-8 reps. My goal is to add weight or reps to my bench, squat, and chins each week. I plan on doing this forever I bought some of those little magnetic weights so I can make 2.5 lb increases instead of the much harder 5 lb increases.
