The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Negative, did some warm ups, a few singles, I wanted 8 of 155, but only managed 5. So I dropped it 10 lbs and did as many sets of 5 that I could. Dropped it again.

    ME lower:

    Box Squat:
    135x5
    225x5
    275x2
    315x1
    335x1

    110x5 / 170x5

    Abs:
    Incline situps: 2x20
    Wood Chop: 3x8

    --

    Eh, getting better. 385 was strong, I know I've done more, but since being in golds this was good. So, i'll take it.

    Edit:

    I've been reading a lot more of the pro journals and seeing that abs are trained on a regular basis. I know most pros preach abs every time you train, so who am I to argue. I think leg curls have been helping my hams. This are going well.

    weight: 189 - I would say when all is said and done I'm 189. I've been up to 193 recently, but I believe it's all water and bloat from carbs.

    190s? Damn dude, I think your bulk is one of the best I've ever seen. Not many people can actually keep it up year after year. I remember when you first joined wbb lol. And you did it without bako shakes! Hahaha.

    Bako,

    I appreciate that comment! It's been a long process over the past 4 to 5 years, but in with all the ups and downs, I've always ended up progressing year to year.

    Cute girl.
    I wouldn't worry too much about the motivation. You had a serious run there for a while. After that your body just needs some 'coasting' time. It'll come back. Still, a very good session.

    You're definitely right and I think I've came up with a plan!

    Ah! haha, I honestly have never measured, I don't think it crossed my mind. They look small in real life, that's just a generous picture!

    no no no, they're much smaller than the picture shows. I think it was just decent lighting.
