yeah lol I don't know I'll prob do what it says and buy new bottle every month like it wants me to do haha.

Here's todays workout. Awesome day. Felt very good and proud of my deadlift. Maybe I'm just excited for tonight being that it's the biggest part night of the year or maybe the jacked I took helped. Possible placebo but I'll take it. I'll just copy and paste the fitocracy post with notes for each workout.

Barbell Squat:
45 lb x 15 reps
95 lb x 10 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
155 lb x 3 reps
175 lb x 5 reps
175 lb x 5 reps
175 lb x 5 reps

Every work set of squats has felt the same since 160. Good sign. Loving the fact that I can grunt in my own garage. Always seems to make the lift easier.

Barbell Bench Press:
45 lb x 15 reps
85 lb x 10 reps
115 lb x 5 reps
130 lb x 5 reps
130 lb x 5 reps
130 lb x 5 reps

Feels heavy but not difficult. Bench press was never my best lift but hoping to get to 175 within a few months. I good forward to the days when I was repping 85-90lb dumbbells

Barbell Deadlift:
135 lb x 10 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
205 lb x 3 reps
230 lb x 5 reps

This has felt very similar since 205. Very good feeling doing something I didn't think I'd be able to do when I started this program. Looks like hitting my goal of 275 at the end of the program will be doable. Only 1.5months in and I plan on sticking to it until the linear progression stalls out. The over under grip is a life saver.

Thats how it'll be for a while. It'll be hard but you'll get the reps for a long time hopefully. I remember when I was going through it thinking I was going to stall on squats at like 230 and I got all the way to 295. Milk these linear progression as much as you can. You'll never make gains like this again... EVER. I'm happy now if I can add 15 - 20lbs a year on squat and DL...... And I'm sure in a few years I'll be happy if I can add 5 or 10.

yeah man it's a weird feeling. I'm on the 3rd rep and I'm like "oh sh1t" this is tough but I just push up slowly. I pause a lot of times at the top, hope that's ok.

180 lb x 5 reps (+84 pts)

135 lb x 3 reps (+37 pts)
135 lb x 3 reps (+37 pts)
135 lb x 3 reps (+37 pts)
135 lb x 3 reps (+37 pts)
135 lb x 3 reps (+37 pts)

lol this soreness is annoying the hell out of me. it's just one small spot in my lower left side of my back. Definitely muscle soreness and not anything to do with my spine which is good but still annoying. I'll probably pick up some icey hot or something.

Thanks. I should probably invest in a heating pad. Any recommendations or are they all pretty much the same?

Please critique my videos guys. lol at the cube.

Squat I'm happy with and lighter deads I'm happy with but I know as I went up on the deads my form started to suffer.

185x5 squat. Shirt makes me look fat lol



135x10 deadlift



225x2-Gotta get my chest up. I rocked a little bit as I started. 2nd rep seemed better



260x4 I was beat doing this one. Form suffered quite a bit and it's obvious to see I'm kind of maxed. Even had one of my favorite "pump up" songs on. I just couldn't do it.



My back felt a little tight again today but when I started working out it felt a lot better. Go figure.



Barbell Squat:
45 lb x 20 reps
95 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
155 lb x 3 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
Hard but doable. Should be a few more sessions before I really struggle.

Barbell Bench Press:
45 lb x 25 reps
85 lb x 15 reps
115 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
Still pretty easy

Barbell Deadlift:
135 lb x 10 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
225 lb x 2 reps
260 lb x 4 reps
First stall of the program. 15lbs each workout is too much at this point. I'll be deloading back to 225x5 next week and adding 5-10lbs per workout based on how I feel.

A couple of things DylloS, I think the movement on the way down is way too fast, needs to be slower and more controlled, and without bouncing so much at the top.
Need more weight on the bar, you can do heavier than that.
And your shirt's got too many carbs

Yea you may be right on the down movement. I'll try to slow it down next time. And yeah i know I need more weight but if you follow the thread you'll see the program I'm doing calls for 5lb more weight each time. So Thursday I'll do 190 Sat 195 and so on.

On deads, try to imagine sitting down in a chair for the first actual "movement" which will help keep your back from doing all the pull, but also then try to visualize pushing the earth down...hard to explain, but you want to drive with your feet, not back - thats how injuries can happen (obviously other types of dead and RDL's, this will change)

The slight slowing of the down movement which you already talked about, and DON'T LOOK DOWN with the weight loaded lol. Make sure to look high to keep everything tightened - you're in a corner, you don't need to worry about what crack you're standing on and just get the feel for where your feel should be....mirror might help.


Otherwise, esta bien

Those DL reps at 260 were way too fast to not even for for the 5th rep. Taking a big breath and holding it before your reps will help you keep a lot tighter. Also, you are almost stiff leg deadlifting the heavier weights. I have that same problem when they get heavy. Try to keep it closer to your body and get a little more knee bend into the movement and push through the ground.

Squats look good though even though you look fat!
