    don't even usually listen to music when I lift, my buddy was playing some rock idk what it was, most Eminem songs get me "in the zone"

    ya sometimes it helps for me but sometimes I just like the silence because I can just concentrate on the lift and "self motivate" myself

    today was my rest day so I did some abs and calves. my calves have grew substantially in the past 2 months, im pretty proud of them =) lol
    my abs are going to be sore tomorrow, I really tore them up with decline sit ups and cable crunches.
    it felt like they were ripping apart,(in a good way)
    bad news is I hurt my hip while doing decline sit ups. it is pretty tender right now and I have deadlifts tomorrow, so we will see how that goes. I hope it heals up and doesn't bother me during my workout. DOMS is still noticeably less. im really liking this stuff.

    sooo I had deadlifts today. I was not feeling it AT ALL today, im trying to do a little stim break for a week or so and it is really killing me. I had no energy or motivation to be in the gym today, also was just feeling foggy and strange, but I still got it done.
    once I got into my workout that pretty much went away though.
    I hit 250 5x5 today on deads(most I have done on a straight bar) this is my 2nd workout with a straight bar. I always use to use a hex bar and pulled 275 5x5 on my last time doing it.
    I have the dreaded OHP tomorrow, gonna break another PR hopefully!

    OHP day went pretty good, as you all know by now OHP is my worse lift and I am at a constant battle with it. today I was going for 105 5x5. I got 105 x5 on my first 3 sets then x4 on my last 2, so next time I will be going for 5x5 all across the board again. idk why my OHP is so bad. all my other shoulder exercises weights are just as much as my friends who OHP 135x8.
    I really expected some bad DOMS in my hamstring from deadlift and SLDL yesterday. while I was doing SLDL I was really steeeeeetching my hammies out on the way down, and I really felt the burn, but next to no DOMS today.
    so I am pretty happy about that., recovery must be improving

    alright guys, today was my off day so I just stopped in the gym after finals to do a little abs and calves. I hot them pretty hard though and did non stop supersets for about 40min. It was pretty tiring, the one thing that has gotten me surprised is my lack of DOMS.
    I destroyed my shoulders yesterday with dropsets and static holds and today they are only slightly sore, along with my pecs.
    I am expecting my abs to be sore tomorrow as I destroyed them today as well. so we will see how I feel tomorrow. I have squats tomorrow and im ready to break another PR.

    ok today was squats day and all went well. I had my algebra final today and my brain is fried! I really needed to let out my aggression in the gym today.
    this is what today looked like
    squat: (ATG) 215 4x6
    RDL: 215 4x7 (these felt a lot lighter than usual)
    legpress: 4x7
    legcurl: 4x8-10
    leg ext.: 4x8-10
    I had a really good session. squats went up, my RDL's seemed lighter than usual, I even added 5 pounds. DOMS is still down. my soreness is no where near what it usually is.

    Upping the weights and still no doms. Good deal man. Recovery seems to be on point for sure.

    upper body day went good. my triceps are still shaking from pullovers and CGBP, its hard for me to brace myself on my laptop right now haha.
    I had heavy bench/row both lifts progressed so im pretty happy about that. I switched from BB to DB OHP as my accessory lift for the first time ever. I really liked the way the DB feels. you can get more ROM.
    The DOMS in my hamstrings are very little from squats yesterday, and I absolutely destroyed them. recovery has been AWESOME.

    I tried these Jefferson squats today, but i just couldn't get it down right. they felt strange and my knee kept bending/twisting inward, so i didn't do them. has anybody tried these?

    just wanted to start off by saying I am VERY surprised with my workout today!
    as all you know I am still beat up form the crash but I figured, mine as well go in today and try to do my workout. I was in the gym and I was not feeling it AT ALL. I literally almost left, I just didn't want to really be there.
    did my first set of deadlifts and.......I FREAKIN PR'd lol. the weight seemed to go up easy.
    i did deadlifts 255 5x5. on my last set i did it 6 times, i could of did it 6 times every set more than likely.
    i also did back hyper extensions for the first time in like 2 years, and lets just say my glutes/lower back/ and hamstring were really feeling those. im expecting some pretty serious DOMS for the next couple days, but we will see how quickly I recover

    Kind of liked those jeffersons. You really have to try and keep your knees pointed outward.

    Start light, once you've mastered the technique you can go a bit heavier. You'll love the feeling in the glutes....

    I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED!
    where did my DOMS go? lol. seriously though, I absolutely destroyed my posterior chain yesterday. I could hardly walk out of the gym and today there is absolutely no soreness. my recovery is off the charts.
    today I broke through my OHP plateau, I have a constant battle with OHP and I completely suck at it, but today I progress and got 105 5x5(pathetic I know)
    most all of my other lifts improved as well this workout. it seems as though I have more endurance during sets, as I can push out an extra rep on higher repetition sets.
    everything is great so far, I might have to make this a staple in my stack
