Kinda had a crappy day due to petty personal stuff. Dieting went smooth enough. Decided to save heavy squat for tomorrow; hit some trap/bicep stuff tonight.
Alternating Db Curl
High-Pulley Concentration Curl
Pumps again were quite impressive, ran 1 & 2/3 scoop of Volatile tonight to great effect. And this guy at the gym saw me deadlifting my barbell up to shrug and when I was loading all the plates he gave me a barbell jack...for free, and for keeps! So that was pretty badass.
Nothing says you're gonna deadlift for real like bringing in your own jack...

Well, today wasn't what I'd hoped in the gym. Squat def didn't improve, maybe weakened. Morning weight was 205.4, and I can see in the mirror that the diet is working. I even brought in extra carbs/cals for squat tonight, to no avail - getting leaner & lighter is hurting my power I'm sure. Felt good in gym, just weaker than I expected on every squat. Just had no explosive power. Wanted 5 on 405, but 4 was what I expected. Barely got the 3rd one up.
Bb Backsquat 135x10, 225x5, 315x5, 365x5, 405x3, 425xBOMB
Bb Frontsquat 225x6, x5, x5, x6
Speed Deadlift 135x10, 225x5, 315x3 for 8 sets (1 min rest)
Db Farmer's Walk 100s for 2 total trips across gym for 4 sets
I hate the idea of losing some strength, but for the first time I'm already happy about what I see in the mirror - I've been carrying 10lbs too many for a long time now since I've been training seriously. So at least I can get naked or hit a float trip in confidence again. To give you an idea of diet (and this is for heavy squat):
Meal 1: 2 scoop Humapro, 1.5tbsp coconut oil w/ OyxECA
Meal 2: 2 cans tuna, rinsed
Meal 3: 1/2 can of Lima Beans, 1/2 Turkey Kebalsa
Meal 4: 1/2 can of Lima Beans, 1/2 Turkey Kebalsa, cup of coffee w/ pwdr creamer
Meal 5: 3 oz lean sirloin, 2tbsp True Natty Pb, 1 cup skim, 1 pack cinnamon quaker oat w/ 2 Glycobol
#5 is preworkout, and this whole day was far more than it's been but wanted to power up for legs. Running carbless basically all day normally until the meal before gym, but added lima beans & coffee creamer for squat today (whoo). Normally its a protein source like turkey or chicken or tuna and avocado or coconut oil every meal until a Scivation low-glycemic lean mass blend w/ glycobol before gym.

Don't let it get you down, the strength loss may be more mental than anything. Sometimes just knowing your not on any more can trick you into thinking this. One step back and 2 steps forward keep putting in work and you'll be fine..

Progress pic since it's 2 wks or so into pct; believe my morning weight is 205ish and I can tell a good difference in tummy - abs are more visible than I've ever had when I suck it up. This tone let me show a more honest view of my stomach w/ the light.

Man Volatile just never seems like a bad idea before a lift.... 2 scoops and wrecked speedbench & chest/tris. I feel like mentioning the pump effect from volatile every time because I notice it every time in the gym; it's great - tonight was no exception.
Speedbench 135x5, 185x5, 205x3x8 sets (more weight than ever used for this, felt faster than ever, 1 min rests which is less than ever too)
Incline Db Press 80s x12, 90s x8, 100s x6, x4 (PR's all day)
Incline Hexpress 40s x15, 50s x12, 60s x10, x8
Dips BWx15, BW+25lbs x10, x9, x11
Low Pulley Cable Flyes 20/side x15, 25x15, 30x13
Tricep Straightbar Pushdown 65x15, 80x12, 95x8 ds 65x3 pause x5 pause x6
High Pulley Cable Flyes 25/side x15, 30x12, 35x10 ds 20x a bunch
Can't tell you why, but bench seems to not be suffering the slightest with me dropping weight or eating at a deficit - feel like I'm continuing to strengthen upper body-wise

Life's a garden, dig it

Also, 1 & 2/3 scoop Dymatize Cinnamon Roll Casein + 1 scoop Apple Cider Humapro = 25g fast protein equivalent & about 40g slow, 200 calories, low-glycemic, only 8g carbs. And tastes like drinking a bowl of applejacks!

So today has just been winning at life, like all day non-stop. Perfect-ass weather and a perfect day. Sunny, breezy, high 60s with lower humidity equals my vette running awesome.
Woke early at 8:30 or so, met a friend for Starbucks coffee after some isolate before she went into work. Due to all the caff from that but knowing what 1 scoop of Volatile does (and doesn't) do for me, added 4g Taurine & 2.5g creatine mono to a lone scoop to get things where I'd believe I'd want them. Sorry Formutech for this temporary modification to the log today; a man needs his coffee sometimes but still wants his supps!
Workout was boss, perfect amount of stim & actives to get it done son - powerful drive (this has been a recurring theme) today & nearly got to the puking point in the squatrack.
Deadlift 135x10, 225x5, 315x5 (these from 1 in. deficit), 405x5, 455x3, 495x2 (PRs; these were all true deads, NOT touch-n-go's)
Bb Backsquat 135x11, 225x10 for 2 sets, 245x10 for 3 sets (all below parallel, as ATG as I can get lol)
5x10 at 60% on squats puts hair on your chest. As soon as I finished these the recently-single MMA girl I mentioned last wk showed up needing a mechanic -this guy - to swap her flat for a spare in the parking lot. So she was lovin' that, and told me she wants to take me out for food sometime soon to repay me And then I had a great coffee visit with mom, & postworkout hotwings and cheese-stuffed toasted ravioli (in STL here). So winning.

Plus the Volatile literally had my quads and calves so pumped late in the sets I'd have to pause around rep 8 to let the swell leave my leg for a moment before continuing. Maybe it was lactic acid. But it was righteous.

Thanks man; trying to keep doing what I do and get those numbers higher. My 5'7'' buddy got on a cycle of test when he had just turned 18; I remember washing dishes with him thru the end of highschool and over the summer after he just started blowing up, like 20 lbs of straight lbm at least. He had like 18" arms at the time. He deadlift 565lbs that summer. Was 18 yrs old, only been deadlifting for a year I think then, at a weight of like 170s.

Very nice work in here Hyde,I expect nothing less from you tho,keep it up!
