Shred my way to summer! I have never been closer to those ever elusive 6-pack abs – now is the time… It’s almost performance season, not to mention pool season. Giving myself 8 weeks to cut some fat (but not at the expense of all my strength though). I’d also like to get better at keeping track of my food intake – I’ll keep meticulous notes at times & eat clean pretty consistently, but then blow that all out of the water with an undocumented cheat meal.
After this 8-weeks, I will reevaluate & possibly begin Wendler’s 5/3/1. I really want to start that program being very lean (along with some more nutrition experience to go along with it).
I’ve ran OG, but this is my first shot at the Elite & EP DPOL stack. I’m starting this log a couple days into this stack, but early enough that nothing is really going yet.
Coming back from my deload week/vacation, I was surprised that my first workout I hit the same numbers for deads that I did before break. Today’s decline bench was a 2 part PR- Hit 265x3 then 275 x1 – previous best was 260x2
Current: , , powder-Custard Crème, Forskolin 95 (week 9-12)
Staples: , , Creatine (postworkout), Protein Powder, BCAAs
Preworkouts: , , , , – I like to mix & match these, make new combinations
Other Randoms: , , (cardio days or afternoon at work)
These might get added further down the line or after this stack: , , ALA
I hand write my log in a spiral notebook. Over time I got into the habit of swapping an exercise with each completed page, so now I have a couple variations I can go thru. I don’t like to deadlift heavy too often in a short time, so that works out as hitting deads on each page turn equals about 2-3 times per month. Dedicated shoulder days are fairly new to my program – rehab an old annoyance plus strengthen up for the long-haul. Cardio is thrown in as it fits in.
Days progress as follows: A (lower), B (upper), C (shoulders), Rest ->
