7/7/11 - Chest
Incline Bench Press: 135x15/185x12/225x10/245x8/255x5/265x3/225x10/185x12
Bench Press: 225x10/245x9/275x5/225x10/225x9/185x12

That's off the top of my head without my notebook; I just can't remember if I did a 4th set of decline or not lol.
It was a good workout; chest was pumped, but I still just feel very apathetic toward the workouts.

Another is I tell people to drop barbell for a month or two and do nothing but DB's, flat DB, incline DB, personally not a fan of decline anything, so just flat and incline, lol. Then come back to barbell.
It's funny cuz it's a fine line, it is true that the best way to get numbers up on lifts is to do that actual lift, like squats for instance, the best way to get your squat up is to....squat! But on the flip side, you keep doing the same damn lift time and time again and eventually it starts to make it go DOWN instead.

I had taken the whole week off after Monday's workout and just didn't have the motivation to get back in there. I'm back on track, now, though to hit it 5 days a week and I'm going back to my style of Max-OT training for a week and then back to high intensity circuits the other week.
Tomorrow is legs.

Hey man, just read up on your log and your doing solid work. Just lookin' at your numbers from page to to now (a month) you have made killer strength gains across the boards. Very nice! Keep up the good work. Don't let the whole vaca in HI get you down, just remember your back now and none of that matters. Hope everything with your thyroid is going the way you want it to. Just rely on God and he will give you the strength you need. Keep at it man!

Vacation definitely didn't get me down, haha. Taking the two weeks off and not eating very much definitely ate up some of my strength, though. I've got another appointment with a new doctor in town on Friday and hopefully he'll be able to shed some light on the thyroid situation for me. It's the doctor my gym-owner uses and has him on TRT. He's just an internalist, but when I asked his office they said he'd done work with thyroids before, so hopefully he'll know his stuff.
It's just weird as all can be to see my weight stuck at this point and not budge (other than up if I'm not careful lol). On the bright side, I finally know that it's not my fault lol. I think back of all the years I'd beat myself up over not losing and that it must have been for having an extra sandwich or something stupid like that.
I'm definitely praying a lot about it and I know that there's a reason for this; even if it's just to remind me that earthly things and this earthly body aren't nearly as important as making sure I'm living a Godly life. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been prioritizing that correctly. Oh well, here's to hoping God has a cure in my near future

Goodluck at the doc! hopefully he will be able to help you, and find a way to over come your thyroid issues. I know it'll work out for you in time man. We all get distracted from Him, and we can all do better all the time. As long as your trying to improve everyday, I believe he is happy with our efforts.
I'll try to keep checking back in to see your progress, keep hitting it!
