    * Form is finally feeling much better. Right hip area was a little tight, but I think I got it stretched/worked out. I was able to up weights so I'm happy about that.
    ** Finally starting to feel better about these as well. I think part of my problem was that I was hunching my shoulders a little, must remember to pull them back

    Another awesome feeling workout. The volume is starting to get up there, but it feels great. Felt a little bit of trouble on the last set of squats, but was able to push through. Haven't gotten stuck yet, so I'll keep pushing along Bench is feeling good, ready to get into some higher weights. Gym was empty by the time I got to the rows. Form is definitely starting to pick up there. They feel much better. Contemplated riding my bike to the gym this AM, but was too tired. Think I might try on Monday - it's only a mi and would take me all of like 5 mins probably.

  2. Nice! Looking good, and the bike ride would be a nice warm up as well. I remember SL mentioning shoulder dislocations to improve flexibility in that area as well.

  3. Yep before every leg workout generally, I do 10 mins on the bike to warm up the knees, then about 5-10 mins of stretching, hip mobility, then start warming up lightly

    Keep it up Lexagon

    slowly climbing is still progress!!!!!

  5. No workout today - day off!

    However, my Magic Matcha did come in last night ... YUM! Exactly as I remember it. Have to use a little less water as I LOVE strong green tea, but it's definitely great stuff. Excited!

    Ha! Have I never mentioned that once I get on my bike nothing else exists, I end up riding until my legs are so tired they don't want to anymore. I can typically get close to about 20mi on the weekends. Easy peasy. I LOVE riding my bike.

    ~3.5 mi bike ride - to gym and back. I'm really enjoying this addition. A little cardio and a great warm-up/cool-down. It's not a hard ride everything is completely flat! And it's a really easy ride.

    * Legs were still a little sore from the weekend. I'm used to having 2 days off, but I worked out Sat (instead of Fri). I think cleaning/reorganizing yesterday did them in a little too. Lots of lifting heavy boxes. In4 Lex OHPing boxes in the storage unit .. LOL
    ** The last set of 5 of these were pretty rough. I was just tired by then, but it was ok I still managed to get all of them. I was just a little tired.

    Great workout. Felt awesome today even though my hams were kinda sore for some reason (right leg mostly). I did a good amount of stretching and then crushed everything. The weights are starting to get heavier, I can feel it. BP feels really good, finally doesn't feel like I'm going to throw the bar, LOL! Squats are coming along nicely. And rows are getting there. Gym was SUPER empty early in the AM, which was even nicer. Didn't have to fight anyone for anything. Actually saw some ladies pushing good sized DB's ... then saw another doing 1/8 squats .. srs

    Looking forward to having tomorrow off. I can tell I'm going to be sore ... hehe!

    I can see changes in my calves and small changes in my arms. Mid section is a little slower, but it's coming along. I expect that by mid Aug I should see some better progress. I'll have to take some measurements. I keep forgetting.

    DLs**:
    5 x 75
    5 x 95

    * OHP - only got 3 @ 60lbs ... and I BARELY got that 3rd one. Deload back to 55 and I was fine. Looks like I will do another week at 55 for now and try the 60 after that. I have no idea why it was SOOOO much heavier but it was. You know come to think of it I wonder if I had 65 on there, lol wouldn't be surprised. May I'll try 60 again just in case lol

    ** Got really excited that I was able to use the 25lb plates. Sure it's not the 45's but the little things make me smile right about now. 95lbs felt good, excited to start getting into the higher weights.

    Great workout. Seemed to go by kinda quick I have no idea why. I wasn't rushing or anything, I just felt good. Decided to try something different and take .5 scoop of Gluta before and the other .5 post. So far it seems to be working great. Hardly any muscle fatigue during the workout. The only time I felt it was when I was geared too low on my bike going home and had to force it. Felt really good throughout everything. Squats are going amazingly well. I'm not bummed about the OHP I knew that would happen and really I think I might have f'd up on the weight. Hehe ooops! Silly me.

    ~5.5 mi bike ride - to gym, then Target and back. Long story short since I was already on the bike I decided to run to Target real quick and get some draino because nobody else in my house seems to care that the tub is clogged. And the gym is 1/2 way there. So I just took an extra ride, legs .... are ... toast now.

    * hehe, so I had a math malfunction and actually added 5lbs too much on the bench. I couldn't figure out why it felt a little heavier than usual, but I got through it. Guess that's a good thing.

    So I get to the gym a little later than usual, because I was sleepy. Hoping that everyone who usually goes on Sat AM's is already cleared out. Of course not, everyone was going later. There's this guy that is there sometimes, lifts decent weight, but does these weird circuits. Walk in, he's in the rack, ok fine whatever, then I notice he's also got 2 of the 3 other oly bars set up behind him. Ugh. I stretch, he doesn't finish, so I decide to bench first, he should be done before I am..... still not done ... wtfareyoudoingoverthere.jpg Then I suck it up and do rows, not happy that I have to squat last. Do rows, srs guy is still not done. Finally he brings one bar back so I figured sweeeet! Finish rows ... walk over to the rack ... bertstare.jpg different guy CURLING! Stretch for a few, stare at him, finally ask him how much longer he says just a minute or 2. Then thankfully he wasn't a dbag and asks if I wanted to squat, I said yes. He moved the extra bar out of the way and let me in. He even unracked the other guys weights. I thanked him, nice guy. Well done sir.

    ^^Pretty sure that was all just ramble. But you get the idea.

    On a more upbeat note I just noticed that Monday I will hit my first squat PR I'm excited about that. I think all my rows are PRs since you know I've never done them

  23. Congrats on the squat PR!!!

  24. SL - B

    Squats*:
    5 x 60
    5 x 70
    5 x 80* PR
    5 x 80
    5 x 80
    5 x 80
    5 x 80

    OHP**:
    5 x 45
    5 x 55
    5 x 60
    4 x 60
    3 x 60 - barely got 3
    5 x 55
    5 x 55

    DLs***:
    5 x 75
    5 x 95
    5 x 105

    * Squat PR .. YAY! Finally hit 80 and it wasn't too bad. I could definitely feel it though. Had to do these after my OHP's because yet again rack was being used.
    ** Still struggling with the 60. However, I did get more in this time so that has to be a good thing. My shoulders were still really sore/stiff from Sat. Plus I did some lifting/cleaning on Sun. I dunno. I think 60 is my sticking point for now. I'm going to try it one more time and hope for the best.
    *** Heavy! But felt great! Next DL round I should hit a PR as well.

    Workout was pretty good, even though I woke-up exhausted. I dunno what the deal is. I need to get some more sleep, I'm just not tired at night. Which is a major downside of working out in the AM for me. Wakes me up, but then at night I have excess energy. Felt kinda like just an OK work-out. I mean I did get a PR in Squats (awesome). But the rest felt I dunno just off a little. Admittedly I didn't eat much yesterday and I think that might have effected it since I train fasted.

    On a side note: I have barely had any DOMs after the last few workouts. Apparently the ProMera stack is definitely doing it's job and that is awesome!

    I'm going to take off until next Wed, since I leave for vaca on Thurs night. I'll take the bike out on Wed and get in a good ride since I haven't been able to do that for a while. And then pick up back on SL-A on Wed Aug 1 I need to focus on getting some sleep and relaxing a little. Although I do love the gym. We'll see if that lasts. I just feel off. My nutrition hasn't been so great either though. Guess I have some re-adjusting to do. Haha!
