Once again a little delay in the posting of this. Sorry guys.
Upped CHO in the pre-workout shake/meal today.
Pre-workout: 1.5 serving 1 hour before lift. Drank 3 scoops + 1 scoop Compete 15 minutes before lift.
5/3/1 Bench Day
3 sets for warm-up.
1 set of 5, 1 set of 3, then did a couple heavy singles. The first single at 225 was easy so sad what the hell lets toss ten on and get 235. Got it pretty easy as well but decided no need to keep going.
Honestly feel my bench is pretty week and before this run with 531 I used to pretty much exclusively do dumbbell bench. So this was the most I have had in my hands for barbell ever. Didn't feel hard just weird because not used to the "heaviness". Ya that sounds lame. :weak:
Kept most of the myo-rep work at real high reps/light. Kind of as a test to see how much it has improved since week 1 on .
Don't have my training journal on hand so these are estimates. So don't be if the numbers change when I do my final review for comparisons. Also some were real high reps and I may have miscounted.
Military Press 85lbs 20 reps + 12
Lat Pulldown 165lbs 12 reps + 12
Barbell Curl 55lbs 25-30 reps + 15
Rope Extension Plate 14 25 reps + 15
Cable Flies Plate 10 26-27 reps + 12
Heh. Honestly for the arm work the reps got so high that by the time I was done I thought I would pop. Literally inhibited by the pump (not something that happens in my training very often). Everything was pretty wrecked by the end of this work.
Hit 3200 calories. 250/400/65
Well high reps on this now that is nearing the end as opposed to at the start of this log was beyond crazy. Literally inhibited the later myo-reps as I could hardly flex my bis and tris. I hate this and hate arm work in general but know some people live for it...
Strength felt good. Starting to note some aches and tightness in certain trouble spots. Usually when I feel this creeping a nice deload takes care of it perfectly. Nothing bad right now just can tell this is getting towards the end of where I am going.
Built up to 5g of in the morning and another 3g serving later in the day on off days ( later in the day before training on training days). Honestly don't notice much stim even here. Will go up to full 2 scoops next week (not that it matters in this log), but my stim tolerance is annoying. Noticing good thermo effect and nice mood enhancements with this.
Kind of random note/rant. Weight is fluctuating more than usual. I'll post some comparison pics from 2 months til now at the end of this week in the final review. It was bothering me pretty hard the day of this workout though. Definitely not as lean as I was several months ago and was confused at how much muscle I may have added vs fat since my cut. I have had several people this week comment I am looking more muscular lately. Looking at the pics though it appears I may have lost some fat during this two months (I gained way too quick immediately following my cut which is probably what has me ranting). O well got everything pretty much squared away training wise for awhile now.
Expect an update today or tomorrow after I get my Squat lift in today.
