  7. Slept til like 3:30 today. All those nights with only 4 hours of sleep caught up to me.
    Took 2 scoops of LemonRecover pro in 20 ounces of water and by 4:10 I was lifting.
    On the drive to the gym I drank some Condense (1.5 scoops to really get the juice flowing).

    I thought I was gonna feel like crap with so much liquid in my stomach but since I was fasted I didn't even feel it.

    Today is shoulder day for me and leg day for everyone else so I had to ninja a squat rack.

    Started with Smith Machine shrugs
    1 pps x15
    2 pps x15

    NINJA

    Warmed up my rotator cuff and then did some light OHP
    Then
    1 pps x8 superset SMS 2 pps x15
    1 pps x7 superset SMS 1 pps x15
    1 pps x6
    1 pps x4
    I actually enjoying bridging exercises like that a lot, it's always feels great.

    Did a little more rotator cuff work cuz it's been irking me lately.

    Went off to rear delt flyes on the pec deck machine.
    1 arm 100lbs x15
    1 arm 130lbs x15
    1 arm 150lbs x10 (this was the ticket)
    1 arm 150lbs x10 into 2 arm 150lbs til failure

    Bent over db rear delt flyes
    15 lbs x15
    15 lbs x15
    15 lbs x12
    15 lbs x13 (added 1 more for the hell of it)

    Partial DB side lateral raise
    60 lbs x10
    60 lbs x10 into db external rotation?? 15 lbs x20
    55 lbs x10 --> ""
    55 lbs x8 --> ""

    Machine Shrugs
    1 pps x12 --> db shrugs 40 lbs x12
    2 pps x12 --> ""
    3 pps x12 --> ""
    "" --> ""

    Went home and ate a huge plate of chicken and rice, beans and a nice slice of pecan pie. 2 caps TTA-500 and plenty of water.

    Now I'm writing my 7 page paper and sipping on some more RecoverPro til my next meal again 2 caps TTA-500 and water.

    Funny story of the day was this guy next to me was eying my belt (it's purple) like I was stupid or something, he gets to the squat rack next to me and is squatting the same amount that I am pressing. You could tell he was annoyed cuz he added 5 lbers to each side of the bar and was struggling with it.
    Moral time: leave your ego at the door.

    Lol yeah I love those days, you just shrug it off and the rest of your day is that much better.

    And yeah I've been lowering my weights without even second guessing it a lot lately just to make sure I am contracting the right muscle for the right amount of reps.

    Had to miss legs yesterday as I was watching a few hour long documentaries -_-

    anyway back at it today, slept like 3 hours woke up at 830.
    2 scoops RecoverPro. Nice to have something in my stomach for a 3 hour class

    got out and called my bud to wake his lazy ass up to go lift.
    I wasn't feeling biceps today, they are my best muscle group so I did tris with a little bit of back touch up. (hitting biceps anyway)

    Decline Ez Bar Skullcrushers
    70 lb x12
    70 lb x12
    70 lb x14
    70 lb x14

    Seated DB Over Head Extension Super Set with Bench Dips
    90 lb x12 + 12 dips
    75 lb x12 + 8 dips (2 second hold at the bottom)
    75 lb x12 + 10 dips (same thing)
    75 lb x10 (failure) + 8 dips (got sloppy around 6)

    Cable Pressdowns Drop Set Method
    110 lb x12 + 45 lb x12
    150 lb (maxed) x12 + 70 lb x10

    Isolateral Row (held squeeze for around a count and a half and only 1 arm at a time, perfect form)
    1 pps x12
    55 lb ps x14
    55 lb ps x15

    Underhand Low Row with Lat Pull Down Bar (deep arch and slow release of tension makes this feel amazing)

    110 lb x12
    110 lb x12

    done.
    now I had a homemade weight gainer shake and it was amazing

    1 tablespoon powdered peanut butter
    2 frozen bananas
    and a **** ton of almond milk

    good work on the paper! Workouts / diet looking gooood!

    Keep at it

  18. Fasted leg training is always tricky, but that's what went down yesterday.
    Couple scoops recoverpro then waited til I was almost in the parking lot to drink my ignite 2. (Reasoning was I wanted the energy to peak midway)

    Got there and started hitting some squats, my knees felt like crap so after a set of
    135x10 I stretched for like 3 minutes.

    Tried it out again
    135x10 way better

    For reals (stopped a couple degrees under parallel, didn't feel like going ass to the grass and I didn't notice a huge difference in contraction)
    185x12
    225x10
    225x10
    135x16
    135x12

    Dead and about to puke from the slight pause on the bottom I was using

    Leg Extensions
    90x20
    90x20 started cramping
    70x16
    50x20

    Leg press (feet all the way up and drove with my ankles, accenting the motion by keeping my toes off the platform.)
    1 pps x20
    3 pps x20

    Partner started throwing up like a noob so we had to go, I didn't mind I could have left after those leg extensions and been perfectly fine. Great workout and great pump. It turns out I did time that ignite right for what I wanted to do that day. Baus mode

    More recoverpro 2 pills TTA and then ate 2 roast beef sandwiches and a natural peanut butter sandwich. No protein shake today, I didn't feel like it. sweets get old to me pretty quickly.

    Legs feel good today I might go and hit a little hamstrings and calves

  19. I messed up on a test just right now, I'm pretty mad that I forgot one of the equations and it just snowballed from there.

    Gonna go hit all the heavy movements to take some aggression out. Put this energy to good use. Might even set a pr who knows

  20. Do you usually split up legs?

    Some days it's great, others its a crap shoot for me.

    It depends, if I am alone I like doing them at the same time.
    Squats, lunges, leg extensions, good mornings, leg curls and calve raises is my ideal lifts
    With a partner that would take like 2.5 hours and I normally have too short of a break between school and work to do that.

  22. I read the article about the Smolov Jr program and just for the lols I tried it today. 6 x 6 at 70% 1 MR. I rounded down by a lb cuz it came out to 206 something but I failed right at the end. Good rep range

    Warm-Up bar, 135

    205x6
    205x6
    205x6
    205x6
    205x6
    205x7 (added the last one just to fail)

    Deadlifts. I didn't do them on back day and I get anxious if I don't do my deads.

    8 sets of 4 at 85% 1 MR

    315x4
    315x4
    315x4
    315x4
    315x4 (where I'm at right now)
    315x4
    315x4
    315x4

    My grip is holding up and my form is good, only had 1 hiccup but I shrugged it off. If anything happens to these rep ranges I'll edit but I see nothing getting in the way. *knock on wood*

    1 scoop Ignite 2 and 2 scoops recoverpro waiting for me with some TTA and 2 flat bread natural peanut butter and dried cranberry sandwiches.
