I decided to just hit delts and traps because I refuse to go into a leg day without the right mindset. I'm not skipping it, mind you; it'll just be later this week.

    Max-OT Delts/Traps:


    Nautilus Overhead Presses: 350x6 / 350x6 / 350x5
    Solo Reverse Cable Fly: 80x8 / 90x8 / 100x8
    Seated Rear Delt DB Side Lateral Raises: 65's x 8 (x3)
    DB Side Lateral Raises: 85's x 8 (x3)
    Olympic Bar Shrugs (bar in front; over/under grip): 315x8 (warmup) / 420x8 (x4)


    The overhead press was a PR by a slight margin (last time got 350x5x5x4, so this is the first time I ever got my goal of 6 and also added a rep on each set). I made increases on all other lifts, except for DB side laterals (and that's because I added the rear delt DB side laterals in, so the regular side laterals were my last delt exercise and I hit my numbers from last time). Bumped my numbers on shrugs up by 5 lbs on my working sets. I could do more than that, but it's my grip (and more so my callouses) that keep me from going higher. I've been lifting without gloves for several months, now, after using gloves since I was back in high school.

    This was another day that I wasn't in a kill-mode heading into the gym, but I managed to get a good workout in, again.

    Hemavol was dosed at 2 scoops pre (along with 2g ALCAR, 1g Choline Citrate and 1g Tyrosine -- no caffeine, today) and Compete was 2 scoops intra.

    Your exercise choices are interested, you do alot of complex compound movements. I wish I had the motivation and desire to do them!

    Hit a Max-OT chest session, this evening.

    Dosed 2 scoops Hemavol + 200mg caffeine + 2g ALCAR + 1g Choline Citrate + 1g Tyrosine and 2 scoops MBCAA (mixed separately) pre-workout.

    Dosed 2 scoops Compete in 1/2 gallon of water intra-workout.



    Nautilus Xpload Bench Press: (warmups) / 380x5 / 370x4 / 360x4
    Nautilus Xpload Incline Bench Press: 320x6 / 330x6 / 340x5
    Cable Fly Machine Decline Bench Press: 305x6 / 305x6 / 305x8
    Cable Flys (pushing forward): 215x8 / 215x8 / 215x8



    Not very pleased with tonight's workout. I very rarely have a bad workout (where there is regression), so I can't get too mad, but it's still disappointing because I'm not used to it. Last time (2 weeks ago) I hit the chest press 360x6/370x6/380x4, so I was expecting to pick up where I'd left off. It just felt off on all 3 sets. Last time I hit incline, I was working with 380, as well. Because the regular chest press was so bad, I scaled incline down to ensure I was getting good contractions on my reps.

    On the bright side, I did make increases on both of my last exercises.

    The decline one is interesting. We have a free-standing cable fly machine that works on multiple pullies (arms can go up/down and in/out). I set them all the way at the bottom and at the same width as benching. My gym doesn't have a decline bench station and to be honest, I hate trying to line up a decline bench with the Smith machine or in the squat rack, so I've decided to do these and like them a lot. If I'm doing rep work, I'll usually use the DBs, but the 100s aren't enough for the rep range I was working with here.


    Oh, so I've determined what fruit punch Compete tastes like. I'm not sure if it's just because of that slight hint of cardboard to the taste that makes me think it or not. The flavor is something really familiar, and I'm not sure if this is what my initial thought was or not, but once it came to mind, it's all I can think. It tastes like those real fruit bar popsickles (strawberry). That hint of cardboard tastes like the stick. Like I said, it may really taste like something else, but that's what I think of (doesn't work for the tangerine; that one just tastes like added cardboard, not a popsickle stick lol).

    Thanks, guys.

    I've actually done side laterals with the 95's, but had scaled down and worked my way back up to ensure that I'm not rocking and it's all delts.

    Although, weighing what I do, now, none of my lifts are that impressive to me lol. Hopefully whenever the medical stuff is resolved and I can start losing fat, I'll be able to keep most of the strength.

    Thanks, Mike. On my heavy days, I'm still greedy and like to lead with the overhead pressing movement, but anymore, I try to lead with all my rear delt work, since my front delts are far more developed.

    Lift the fŁcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  10. Very nice. That volume looks painful, lol.

    Back in my hometown since late last night til Tuesday. Posting from the iPad right now, so just a brief update. Manage to get into the Y here and get a quick max-ot back day in before I had to head out to a rehearsal dinner. Gone all day tomorrow for a wedding and plan to hit the gym here on Monday, again.

    More detailed update whenever I can use a computer later this weekend.

    Ha, no crazy weekend; just busy. Had less than a beer at the wedding. It was a great time.

    Spent all day at another childhood friend's with his wife and parents. Haven't seen him since I stayed with him in Hawaii last May and he wasn't supposed to be back here, still. He and his wife spent the last 7 months traveling the world and have been back in IL with family before moving out to Cali. We fried a ton of fish for dinner and it was awesome.

    Hitting the gym tomorrow.

    I essentially don't drink. In college I went 2 spans of a year without drinking and usually go months in between. My parents don't drink and I'm looking to give it up for good eventually.



    Had an awesome HVT arm day, today. Driving back to KY in the morning. Once I'm home I'll give full updates for both lifting days.

    All right, got back to KY about an hour ago.

    Depending on how work goes, tomorrow, I'll be hitting the gym in the afternoon. I'll also take an update the past workouts whenever I get a chance, too.

    I'm the same as you bro, I don't drink either. The only time I ever drank in college, was senior year when me and my girlfriend broke up for 3 months. It didn't take me long to start hating it haha. I drank the most, when I was in high school.

    Haha I'm just happier without it.

    I experimented a bit in high school and I'm glad I did it back then; it made college way less of a transition and I didn't go nuts. For me, though, it's just how I was raised and I don't need lowered inhibitions. I'm really looking forward to having the medical stuff resolved, though, because I'd always viewed alcohol as empty calories and that's far easier to do when it actually makes a difference whether you drink or not, ya know?




    I didn't end up hitting the gym, today. Work was very hectic and it's my birthday, so I spent some time with my girlfriend, this evening and will just hit the gym hard, tomorrow and get back on track.

  25. Well Happy Birthday young man!! Go out and enjoy yourself.
