    Your workouts look very "sterile". If aggression is up -they would look more torturous.
    Numbers are great but its lacking "rage". If you know what I mean.

    Like suddenly 10 sets pull ups -or something -or some rest pause -or drop sets.

    I would like to see some real changes fast, up it a notch.... or call me an azzhole for criticizing.
    No, I like the criticizing. It helps honestly. What do you think I can throw in there to change things up? I have honestly just been running this routine so long I got kinda use to it, and a little change may help me grow even more

    Keep doing what you are doing but, after the last set of any exercise, make 10 sec pause and squeeze out 2-3 more reps, called "rest pause sets".
    Like that:

    Military Press: 95x18, 135x15, 155x12, 155x12, 155x12 Rp 3 RP 3

    I swear that's what gave me a needed push to "REAL" failure.

    Will definetly throw that into my next lift, and try to get a little extra out of each set. Thanks for that.

    We both know, when following a fixed regime, it gets like "automatic". RP sets will truly show you when failure is reached, triggering grows response.
    Looking forward to see how it treats you!

    Very Close. But since my mom lives in Louisiana, and I live in Michigan currently and she is a devote Roman Catholic. She probably would have told me to suck it up, and whacked my knuckles with a paddle for being a pu$$y if I had called her. Lol

  11. DementedCowboy, Nice Workout. I know you’re a very proud Dad!

  12. So hows the weight now? I'm on pct and the sodium bloat is gone, I always feel I look better 2 weeks after the cycle. Good job in the gym and thanks for still updating , some people tend to stop posting half way in to the cycle.

    I'm at 194 currently. Almost there. And I will never just stop a log early. I will always follow it all the way through. Thats the only way, for people to see how you truly do, and how newbs. Learn while reading logs.

  14. Tonight went for a walk around the pond with the wife and kiddo, back at it tomorrow

  15. Morning weight 194

    Was headed to the gym today, but someone was in more of a rush than I was... went to turn, and some kids jumped out to cross the street. I stopped so I didnt hit them, the car behind me didn't.

  22. That's a bummer man. But Purple Heart!

    Yeah, got a couple of them. Thats why I'm retired Army, and why I'm on this whole journey of getting back my life. Being injured and becoming fat and being told I would never be back, that I was gonna only go from a cane to a wheelchair was hard to handle. But, I got news for them. I been off my cane for 2 years now. And I'm coming back, better than ever. Be on the watch tomorrow. I got off of work, so I will be pulling a double session. One in the morning and one evening session
