Day 5 11.13.10
Quote Of The Day:The best program is one that you buy into and believe will work"
Swim 20 mins laps takings rests as needed to prevent the pre teen 125ib life guard from trying to haul my lard ass outta the water.
1 mile run at a brisk pace
Gotta start remembering to compute macros.

I'm getting good sleep at night. Though during the day I do feel tired, and I'm not sure why. motivation is very low. I feel the fatigue is coming from emotional exhaustion rather than physical, for theres been a bit going on in my personal life.
I think this directly influences my inability to devise a program to stick to. What ever program I pick, I feel I'm leaving something out. If i concentrate on this, I'm giving up that, ad I feel I need to do it all. I need to buckle down and devise clear goals, and a program to achieve them.

Ill be posting goals, times line and consequences in a few hours. Today ends the lazy-ness.

1. Add 5ibs To Bench
2. Weigh In Sub 200ibs
--Goals To Be Completed By 11:59pm on 11.29.10--
Here is the deal. I'm giving my self 2 weeks to add 5(or more) pounds to my bench, while maintaining a sub 200(199 or less) pound bodyweight. I will be following a modified 5x5 program.
[B]What I'm Asking From You...[B]
I'm asking to hold me accountable. If by 11:59pm Monday night 11.29.10 I do not post a video of 1. myself preforming a 285ib bench for one good rep, 2. a video of http://www.todaysdate.com/ and scale display of my weight under 200, you give me negative reps.
I will use this as motivation to kick start me into my normal training intensity.

I've Been Dosing at 5 caps every night. The past 2 days I've been very very tired throughout the day. not sure why. sleep at night has been very deep and very good. So much so I've been sleeping through my alarm! I've noticed less DOMS from workouts, even after I completely forgot my post workout shake after a hard workout.

Ok I'm getting killed by school with this break coming up.Heres what I can say
Good workouts lately. this weekend was mostly cardio. I felt obligated to take today off. I didnt think my body needed it but I forgot that I already went 6 straight days. Recovery time is down, i'm not feeling much if any DOMS.
Hopefully stress wont ruin the start of this week. Im home free tuesday!

Ok i think RR was right in sleeping too much. I'm starting to get back to normal with energy levels through the day. I feel great. well rest, stress is down even with a ton of school work the past days. I feel strong, numbers going up. DOMS limited, and recovery time is down slightly.
overall. I feel good. With two weeks in things can only get better.
So far very pleased

I've tried 5-HTP before to boost my mood, and although it helped I had to stop it because I would be way too tired during the day. Sleep was great, but I couldn't go for 10 minutes during the day without yawning.

Im still following bud, It looks like we are still having similar results. You will reach your goal, your really close. In my opinion the best way to increase strength on a lift is to DO THAT LIFT. I have a big bench and big squat (for my size in my opinion) thats because I am always benching and squatting. Its my caveman approach to thinking. I think your log is much prettier than mine, all the colors and organization...
and I see your log has also gotten to be 2+ pages, Im guessing you where not thrown off by this as I was. haha. Good luck, your doing awesome!

Wedsenday I decided to take off because of a now-annual family event, a thanksgiving 5K. I was not ready for this at ALL. So I spent the day stretching and hydrating.
Thrusday, I ran the 5k in 26 and change, not bad for not really running. The gym was closed so I couldnt get a lift in.
Today I'm going to access energy levels and see if I can get 2 strong workouts in, wedensday, and todays. I expect my squats to be a little lower just cause my knees are a little sore, legs seem to be fine, maybe a little tight which is def a pleasant surprise
11-26-2010, 11:50 AM
I agree 100% one of the reasons my bench lags so much is because of baseball I never built up a big bench untill maybe 2 years ago. I just gotta practice the lift, and the strength will come with it.

Good to hear your back to your normal sleep schedule, it's always tempting to sleep more than nescessary, especially when your putting in alot of time into the gym, you know 'when i sleep, i grow!' but it's actually counterproductive to get TOO MUCH.
Annual thanksgiving 5k??? tell me more... my family has the annual thanksgiving 5pies

I've been running around like a mad man all week. Getting my workouts in, keeping motivated, I feel good. Between class, and a new lady friend in the picture some nights have been preocuipied for updates. Thats my fault and I full apologise. I have been taking notes of how I feel, and I'll have a full update considering I'm almost done with my bottle.
Just a note the other night I did pull a new deadlift PR of 440.
