Chest: HS chest press 3 sets (easy on joints)
DB Incline press 6 sets (compound)
Incline Db flys superset with veritcal close grip bar press 3 sets of flys...extra set of close grip (pump)
Pec Deck 4 sets and last set was a double drop set (pump)
Flat DB fly stretch (stretch)
Tris: Close grip Dips 3 sets
Flat bench cable skull crushers 4 sets
Triangle pulldown superset with underhand extension 3 sets
Strength: Disappointing here. I walked in the gym with a small pep in my step but once I touched the dumbbells my arms felt like jello. Thats why I forced myself to do more incline presses. I thought maybe I just needed to warm up but never really felt strong during my chest workout. Hence why I did drop sets and supersets to keep the intensity high. However triceps weren't too bad.
Pump: Pumps were right where they should have been. I really was able to feel my upper chest fill up and then while doing the pec deck I really felt a pump in the middle of my lower chest. Triceps also had a rock solid pump during the superset portion of the workout.
Note: I have been going strong in the gym all winter, so the strength probably has to do with my body needing a rest. Also been feeling a bit of pain in my neck thats going down my back so I'm in the process of getting an ART chiro appointment as well as a massage appointment.

My ass has definitely been dragging, taking this week off and enjoying some time on the beach with my family.

going light for a few days definitely helps out. switch up the rep ranges and watch your strength bounce right back!

Back: Pull ups 2 sets
Underhand BB Row 4 sets
Iso Lateral Row 4 sets
From the knee, rope lat pull down 3 sets
Meadow row 3 sets
Deadlift 4 sets
Bi: BB curl 4 sets
EZ curl 4 sets
Ez curl preacher curl 2 sets
Pumps: Pumps were pretty intense, during the rows my upper back felt blown up. Everything else just felt like I was able to really feel the muscles squeeze since they were pretty blown up. Lower back blew up quick from the deadlifts as well and that stuck, woke up in the middle of the night last night and I still felt like my lower back was pumped.
Strength: It was right were it should have been. Everything was near where I've been, nothing increased but def not lower either. I haven't been doing meadow rows very long but I was able to do more weight yesterday than I ever did before. I do biceps and don't really pay attention to weight but I realized last night that I was curling some decent weight. Weight that I've done before but I felt like I struggled less especially during the first few reps of each set.
Mood: I've been in a pretty good mood. But I did get alittle angry last night at the gym owner. Theres three lat pulldown machines and two of them the cables were dragging and for the most part useless. I could do less weight on them and thats doesn't bother me but when the pulldown drags at different speeds throughout the whole rep I can't stand it. There was something else that bothered me too but I can't think of it right now so it must not have been too bad. So I guess you can say my aggression increased a bit.
Sleep: Sleep has been spuratic. I slept like a baby all weekend, actually overslept a bit. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday night I haven't been able to fall asleep all that quickly. Then when I do fall asleep I'm back up in an hour. Tired this morning as I'm typing this

he told me he'd look at it....but hes cheap, this is the same gym that when i was doing cable curls, the cable snapped and the bar came up and smashed me in the face....had to get plastic surgery and now i have a harry potter scar in the middle of my forehead
but it's on my way home from work and the other close gyms are plant fitness and a rich persons gym...so i'm sorta stuck

Nothing crazy here, evertyhing went smoothly. Last 5 minutes of cardio seemed to take forever but that happens.
Abs were good too...really felt a nice squeeze going on.
including today I have 3 days left....which is fine because Saturday is kind of the end of my workout week anyway.

i'm not a huge fan of ab training...but i figure it can't hurt to throw some in....i like to mix up regular crunches of squeezing the crunch hard, but i also do weighted ab training too

Legs: Squats 3 sets
Box squats 3 sets
Squats w/ chains 3 sets
DB walking lunges 20 steps 4 sets
Calf raises 4 sets, last set was triple drop sets
Leg extensions 3 sets
Laying leg curl 3 sets
The gym was a mad house last night. Usually Thursdays are kind of slow but wow everyone showed up last night. So I had to get into the squats racks were I could, did a few sets with some powerlifters, a few sets with a sports trainer and his client.....it worked though.
Pump: OMG! This may sound strange but my legs felt like they were wrapped in bubble wrap during and after the workout. The pump on my legs felt like a big cushion of blood surrounding my whole leg. I've felt big quad pumps and big hamstring pumps but today it was just my whole upper leg felt all equal and expanded.
Strength: It was pretty good considering I didn't get into any 1 squat routine. Hamstring curls were def more weight than I was pushing last week as well. Calves were right were they were supposed to be too.
Libido: Pretty high, it's not to a point where I can't control it but that trigger has a short pull to get me going.

@Gotti, solid looking workout - I hate it when the gym is packed though.
Hopefully you were wrapped up in the pump & strength increases enough that you didn't get too damn annoyed like I do!

Shoulders: DB Side raises 4 sets
BB Shoulder press 4 sets
Plate Loaded Rear Delt Flys 4 sets
Cable Side Raises superset with cable rear delt fly 3 sets
HS Shrugs 3 sets
Pump: Pump was solid, nothing like legs but still got ballooned up quite a bit which I was happy about.
Strength: I was pushing good weight, really happy with my shoulder press weights. I never notice huge increases in the weight I do my side raises with but they felt smooth with a nice squeeze on the end rather than just moving the weight which I'll chalk up as my strength being higher than it was.
Mood: I've been busy all day running around and in a good mood even though I do have a headache, so if I can be productive when I'd normally feel like laying in bed is always a plus in my book.
Side note: Friday was my off day and I celebrated it by eating some amazing hamburgers. As this log is ending so is my "bulk" for the this winter. Even though I didn't bulk even close to the calories I did last year. I feel better about it though, the size I put on I was happy with and I was able to stay more lean which I'm hoping will make the next faze of my journey easier.
Final Review coming Monday. I have some grass fed steak to cook up tonight and tomorrow I'm in a wiffle ball tournament, yes wiffle ball. So Monday I'll post everything up.
