DYEGYE's kickin it old skool with Ancient Strength!

Chest and tris was great. Unfortunately due to waiting so long to update I forgot some of the weights and reps, so I'm only going to post what I remember:
Flat Bench (beat myself up, a lot of sets so I don't remember)
DB Press 60x12 70x10 80x8 95x5
DB Incline 50x12 60x10 70x8 80x4 70x5
Cable Flyes 25x12 30x12 35x12 42.5x8 42.5x8 30x12
Rope Tricep Pushdowns 30x15 42.5x12 50x10 65x8 42.5x15 42.5x15
York Tricep Dip 225x15 245x15 255x15 255x15 255x15
Dips 8 5 8
Hanging leg raises 9 8 7 5 5
Took the ancient strength before my workout. Definitely felt like I was able to do more reps, even if I wasn't necessarily pushing a lot more weight. At this point in the log, I'd say it's safe to say that it's an excellent product, and one I would recommend to just about anyone. Like I said, I can usually tell with creatine if it's making a difference within the first week or two. Ancient Strength is a badass product.

Good workout man! And I'm happy that ancient strength is working out great for you!Recoverbro Elite"This is what we've been working on"

And good clarification as far as knowing your body and if you can sense anything. This is something I need to work a little bit more on, and I need to get some Ancient Strength to try out, as well. I've used mono a lot and never "felt" anything from it at all (but I've got a kilo, so I always just toss 5g in my post shake).

Did shoulders today. Don't really remember my numbers because of some stuff that happened after my workout- it was a really loooong day. So, I'll just write what the workout was:
DB shoulder press
DB lateral raises
DB rear delt raises
DB front raises
Forgot to take my Ancient Strength pre workout, so I took it after the first set of shoulder presses. Definitely felt a little boost a few minutes later.
On the bright side, I had my first appointment with my first true PT client this evening. He's a young kid who's trying to get ready for football this fall, hopefully to play as a WR and DB. We worked on deadlifts for about 15 minutes and then I did a bunch of conditioning/ speed work with him. He could still barely talk when his mom came to pick him up. Hopefully he'll take it as good training and not be afraid to come back.

Sounds like you started that kid out right....I would say if he doesn't come back then he isn't cut out to play the position he wants to anyways

Didn't hit any T-bars tonight, but I did the following:
Bent over rows 135x12 155x10 175x8 195x6 135x10
Iso Lat Pulldown (I used to love this machine but I really didn't feel it as much today, just felt like it was torquing my bad shoulder)
Cable Lat Pulldown
Seated Cable Rows (hit a new PR- did the full stack for 5 reps! A little bit of a "full body" row, but I really felt that I was properly isolating and stretching my back)
Straight bar curls
Iso plate curls
DB Hammer curls
#45 plate hammer curls
Safe to say my back and arms are toasted. Probably going to do some deadlifts tomorrow- hitting the gym bright and early- probably around 6ish. I know it's terrible for recovery, but I'm pulling an all nighter tonight because I have a test in the morning and I need to study all night- it's the only way I seem to be able to do well because I'm basically teaching myself a large portion of the material.

Made it in this morning before class and hit my deads. I didn't do the downsets, but I did the singles progression my buddy showed me. For running on no sleep, I hit 525. Still under my max, but at that hour of the day I was happy with it. Not 100% sure I locked it out though. Regardless, it felt good to move some weight. After that I did 3x10x225 for straight leg deadlifts and then 8x225 and called it a workout. Have bootcamp again tomorrow and I need to be ready. Everything hurts though so I don't think I'm slacking in any of my workouts haha.

Killed it on chest/tris tonight.
BB Bench 135x8 185x5 225x5 255x3 275x1 295x1 245x5 225x8 185x10 135x15x2 (5 full 5 pulse 5 full)
DB incline 50x12 60x10 70x8 80x5
Cable flyes 35x12 35x12 42.5x8 42.5x8 25x12
Rope Tricep pushdown 30x15 50x12 65x8 65x8 50x10 30x12
York Tricep Dip 255x15x4
DB low incline 50x12 60x10 70x8x2
Then I was bs'ing and decided to work in with my buddy on flat DB press- hit the 100's for 5, not bad for being burnt out with chest. Also had powerful forearm pumps at one point to the point that I had to stop my workout for a while so that I could move/ grip stuff.
