    Might be overdoing it a bit. I know when a PH adds strength and endurance a lot of people burn out for a bit. You get it back when you rest up but it's hard on you. I have to be carefull when I go on in January. Take a page of of Snags book and train with purpose and try not to get carried away. I am talkiing to myself just as much as anybody else who may read this.

    Good stuff, a nice mix of power building is something like DC or Dog Crapp training. looks like you are already using Widow Makers for your legs. HST 7 is a program that mixes heavy lifting with high volume that is supposed to be great for adding mass.

    I have been pushing this week hard and not resting because I will be out of town this weekend and will have a three day break. When I feel like I did yesterday I usually do what I did and that is reduce weight and reps. I didn't push myself to hard, kept reps at no more than 8 and kept total movements to a minimum. But I still felt I got something out of it. To change it up I'm going to put DL before squats in my split next week and continue switching them on a weekly basis.

    Kleen, I've been on 531 for a few years now so I have kept my major movements along the parameters of 531, 5s week. Mostly because I want to increase volume. I might shoot for 3s next week and up volume on accessories.

    I have Josh Bryants book on Powerbuilding and got a few ideas there. I also use some of Meadows ideas for accessories and will try to change it up weekly. This week was mostly to see how I deal with the increased volume and extra training day. Sessions are shorter and more intense than my strictly 531 training so I'm loving that.

    Makes sense I just saw you asking Snags about it. THis is my first time doing the 531 and it is weird trying to get used to it compared the multiple bady part high intensity workouts I normally do. All of the resting and everything but I think it is working. We shall see in a month or two.

    531 definitely works. But it is a turtle race for sure. My first time through I went 9 cycles without stalling. But I was constantly gaining weight and pushing PRs. I got up to 260 with terrible work capacity but my major lifts were great. Only problem is I got short of breath doing Normal everyday stuff.

    I dropped from 260 to 215 over one summer and football season and lost almost all my strength. I kept up with 531 taking breaks here and there.

    Where I made a mistake is I did everything backwards. I should have stayed simple with 531 while cutting and done very little accessory work. I thought I could accelerate fat loss by increasing volume but I just got weak. I am now increasing volume while I also increase carbs and calories.

    Chest and Tris

    Flat bench 531-5s. Worked up to 275x5. Had maybe two reps left but no spot so I didn't push it.
    Hammer strength decline 4x12 (got a good squeeze).
    Slight incline DB bench 4x10 (did these light with good stretch and squeeze)
    Cable crossover - FST-7 (great pump after these, thanks for suggestion Kleen)

    Triceps(rush job had to pick up son)
    Dips BW - 10,8,7- 30 sec rest.
    Tri ext machine 3 sets with 3 sec negative didn't count reps just went to failure. Very little rest between sets.

    Sounds like you have a much better plan this time around. I just had to cut my 531 short. Shoulder is hurting and I have other goals to cater to this year other than strength.

    Yeah. I'm just very impatient. Hard to tell yourself more is not necessarily better. I was playing catch up for so long.

    Had a bad herniated L5 @ over 10mm for 5.5 years. From 24-30. I was reduced to very little if any training. So the last 4 years have been me trying to make up for lost time.

    Quick question. I'm starting 550 soon and curious if I should bump up to 4 Ed instead of 2. I would need another bottle. Any thoughts?

    4 of 550 is a very safe dose if you ask me, I found it mild but effective. Very good for recomp.

    Yeah go with 4 and reap the benefits not only on gains but joint recovery. It is a nandrolone pre-cursor after all.

    Yeah. I know you aren't supposed to drink on PHs but I did. And I had fun. One day. Now I'm back home. On the plus side weight increased significantly over the weekend.

    Waking weight of 235 this morning. Some of that is bloat but I feel tight and pumped. I can feel it when I flex .

    I started 550 last night two caps AM and two PM.

    Can't wait to redeem myself on deadlifts today.

    Ok andro has officially kicked in. I felt it before but after three days off I killed it.

    Deadlift 135x10, 135x10, 225x8,225x8, 275x5, 315x5, 365x5, 405x4
    Rack pull 315x10x2

    All weights flew off the floor. I had a couple more at 405 but grip was slipping and didn't want to blow my wad. This was a PR for me. I'm stoked.

    Good mornings 4x10
    Flute machine 2x10
    Leg curl 4x10(light) calves kept cramping
    Shrugs 3x10 with FatGrips

    I felt awesome today. I had that feeling that I was the alpha. Very aggressive ass kicking mood. Very excited.

    SOunds like maybe you got a crick in your neck or a pinch while lifting... Congrats on the PR.

    I am getting too old and lift to intensely not to do it every once 3-6 weeks. Since I hit 35 my body just kind of tells me when I need to back down a bit.

    Damn so I only have one more year? With my normal coaching schedule I tend to have multiple day off. Frequently train 3 days consistently. Not as much need for a de load. I just get impatient. I would rather rest than de load.

    Depends on your joints bones etc.. even when younger my joints would give out easier than a lot of people. Also depends on how well you lift form wise and how much you push.

    Didn't feel great during my workout but I think I sat around to long being off from work. I also agreed to let a friend train with me but he was late so I sat around some more and finally hit squats solo. But the waiting slowed me down.

    Yeah waiting around like that messes up my chi flow... You seem to go heavy but leave one or two in the tank, I tend to go until I know I will fail on the next one. It is a very hard mentality to change...
