Barbell row is up to 175 x 5 strict, Pull-ups were a little stagnant so i threw in a few extra sets which should be good enough. Up to 15 GHR partials, i'm gonna have to find a way to make them more difficult since i'm out of ideas right now, I just feel stronger overall. My upper body feels a lot more "dense" my pec's bounce a lot easier too. My chest seems to really really respond to lower reps like 3-5, My bench form is getting so much better too. I control it textbook and i feel very stable now. Overall everything went exactly the way i wanted today, Wednesday is deadlift day again 425 with a belt let's do this shiiit!!!
    nice work, Congrats on your deadlift pr and slow and steady wins the race. =)

    as for your barbell rows, are you doing them 45 degrees or even lower?

    Thanks man, yeah everything is going great. I broke through my box squat "plateau" and 300 felt really light. Goals are: 505 x 5 Deadlift, 405 x 5 Box Squat, 250-300 x 5 Bench press, 205 x 5 Standing Military Press and 225+ x 5 Barbell Rows.

    They are right at 45 degrees, i pretty much lower myself into the bottom of a stiff leg deadlift position and pull straight up my leg to the middle of my abdominal area. I try to keep the bar close to my legs so i do not strain my lower back as well.
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

  5. Damn hit my goal for the week today of 425 x 5 Deadlift, form was pretty good just need to get that stupid bar in the same starting position every time. Other than that all my warm-ups literally FLEW off the ground. I might try to just tone down my speed so i don't fatigue as much. Anyone have input on this? like say you warm-up but do the reps faster, would that have a negative impact on your final working heavy set?

  6. NVM i looked up some opinions and it's a good idea, it beats in the nervous system to do the movement explosively. Pretty happy with how today went though

    Thanks John, It's really getting tough though to add 10Lbs each week so i'm gonna back off a little and only add 5Lbs per exercise each week. I'd be looking at 60Lbs on all my lifts in 12 weeks which i'd be extremely happy with. And if i feel "good" i will just do more reps so if i get 6-7 instead of 5 that's fine.

    I also had my friend checkout my shoulder he said it's a weak rotator cuff, so beginning last week i've been doing a bunch of exercises and warming up a ton before training. It's made a HUGE difference, no pain and i feel a lot more stable on bench press/squats which usually pull my shoulder in weird positions. I think by the time i get 400 box squat i will be looking at a good 400+ low bar squat for at least 5 reps, The box squat really messes with you since you literally release all tension sitting down. Probably one of the most difficult exercises besides the deadlift.

    yeah rotator work before chest, shoulders, and back imo, is a must. This little device has worked wonders

  11. Great work buddy! Your muscles are really starting to pop! Keep it up

  12. Quote Originally Posted by MuscleGauge1 View Post

    thank you!

    That's exactly what i'm going for, this is my first time seriously dieting down since a year and a half of bulking. It's so awesome to see everything coming in, i can see vascularity pretty well for the first time in my life!

    Okay guys coming very soon i have an absolutely SICK natural stack i'm going to do, afterwards i'm gonna go off all boosters for 2-3 months.
    Here's my secret weapons...
    D-AA
    Bridge (like stoked Resveritrol etc)
    Product X Dermasize - LG Sciences non-hormonal
    Sovereign - UG Pharma EPIC non-hormonal i gained 6Lbs off of one bottle!!

    Going to run all that for 4-8 weeks while dieting/cardio etc.

    After i will take a good 2-3 months off everything and by then i should be in "lean bulk" mode since i would say I'm very close to my goals lean wise as of right now. Still holding fat around my mid-section but not as much, Vascularity is visible in chest and slightly in arms as well. Plus you can bet your bum i'm gonna log my journey!

    I will also say that without a doubt i broke down a barrier yesterday with that 425 deadlift, it was the first time i actually felt my legs burning from low reps, my entire body was shaking too. I was mentally drained the rest of the day as well. I have many many other tricks i can resort to if i hit wall with my training too. I've been religiously watching EliteFTS and Westside Barbell videos to leech from the masterminds of strength. Although the program I'm doing is geared towards both Hypertrophy and Strength, i could always switch for 1-2 months if i feel stagnated. That's my plan for now, use a program for 2 months OR until it stops working. I'm giving it 200% and i'll know when I'm done.

  13. Also this cycle above will depict some decisions i may make in the future, If i make great or even good progress with the above i will not consider PH's or AAS for a long long time if even doing it at all. I believe my goals are achievable without the use of them, there are so many ways around barriers that most people look past. Periodization will do wonders if done with the correct amount of effort.
    Future plan is this in "periods" of about 8 weeks each meaning up to a full year to complete a full cycle.
    1. Continue 5x5 until i reach a stagnation in all lifts (Mostly strength with some hypertrophy) high frequency
    2. Go to Max OT training or DC style training (Strength with more hypertrophy) slightly less frequency
    3. Go to Intentions style bodybuilding training with contraction focus with rest/pause + drop sets + Static holds (Pure Hypertrophy maybe a little strength) Low frequency every 7-8 days.
    4. Repeat

    As you can see i am "systematically" de-loading so to speak. Starting with 3-5 reps, then 4-6+ reps and finally 6-20+ reps.
    With heavier weights i am avoiding muscular fatigue and building up my nervous system. Will be used with bulking or dieting.
    With moderate-heavy weights i am brushing muscular fatigue and also still building the nervous system. Will be used with bulking maybe dieting.
    Finally with moderate weights i am initiating full muscular fatigue. TUT with this will be 40 seconds +, Will be used strictly for bulking.

    I am setting and "priming" myself to grow as much as possible, Hitting the muscle with different frequencies and different loads/TUT Etc.

    Also as more fatigue sets in, there will be more rest. Catch my drift?

    And if i need time off I'll take a week or so, but with how i understand my body right now i should be fine.
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

  14. Man with the plan! Great goals my friend you will conquer all looking forward to future LOGs.

    Great plan! make sure you focus on the form as well, not just the weight

    Always have since my shoulder started bothering me, i just HAVE to do it since my joints will really bother me. 5x5 is nice because i am only adding 5-10lbs on each exercise a week keeping the same form.

  20. o tiny u just continue to motivate, love it man keep it up and u bet ur a** ill be following btw i got a log goin for intimidate adn reversitol v2, try t find to i cant link right now.... id love t have u in!

  21. Okay today was like WTF, i tried the new nanovapor and not sure if i took too much or what but i felt very hot/too energetic/anxious. Made me literally not want to train. I may have to only do 1 scoop but i still managed PR's on all 3 main lifts by some miracle, i swear my rest intervals were 1 minute TOPS so i facked up that part..

    Squat 305 x 3, 275 x 8 (THIS WAS SO DAMN HARD FOR SOME REASON) PR.
    Bench 200 x 3, 170 x 8 Felt O.K. PR.
    BB Row 180 x 5 good reps was good PR.
    Then my assistance exercises kinda went downhill from there, joints started feeling really "dry" i ate low carbs yesterday and that could be why.. Didn't even bother with weighted pull ups or Dips.

    I don't want to jump the gun but i have already gained 20+lbs on all my lifts, Maybe i just need high calories for a day and see how i feel on monday. I have to take into considering dieting etc. Any opinions??

  22. Go and try that high cal day and throw in some carbs. I start to get lethargic after a few days of very low carbs, but a refeed always gets the gears turning again...also you'll probably notice a nice "food pump" which is always cool.

    That's what i'm planning on doing, i got my fix yesterday with carbs after the workout haha. I want to start carb cycling so i can finish this diet and just eat normally at maintenance. I feel good today, i have a set plan diet wise that will involve 1-2 days low carbs and always carb up on the 3rd day with moderate carbs. Never done it before so well see how it goes, gonna love me some chicken/cheese/eggs/turkey/beef!

    Good... its funny... you never notice how much you use a specific muscle until its injured!

  25. Okay i'm officially deloading for a week or two, shoulder is just getting more irritated. It's just overworked so i'm going to go very light the rest of the week on all pushing movements. Squats are still improving so i'm just gonna stick at 305 and try to get up to 20 reps. Got 7 today with form fixed.

    Plus all the low carb days are catching up to me i feel so damn tired now, time to pump up the volume and lower the weights!
