    Exactly!

    You mentioned shoulder problems in your log, right? This site shows all the trigger points when you click on self massage. Open both posterior and anterior shoulder.

    Then search Eric Cressey shoulders on Google. he's a shoulder guru. I've been battling crap shoulders myself.

    I've hurt my rotator cuff about 4 years back, took about a year to heal. I've had my shoulder hurt on and off every once and awhile, but nothing like how it feels right now since the time I first hurt it. My shoulder has a very painful strain in it by my arm just hanging not doing anything, right in the rear delt. I'm gonna give it another 3-5 days before I attempt some light band therapy exercises. I will check that Eric Cressey site out and see if I can find anything else I can add in besides therapy exercises. Thanks for the links! Much appreciated!

  3. Squat

    Squat-Oly shoe, comp stance, 55lb bar
    145x8
    235x5
    325x3
    415x1
    465x1 + Belt
    505x1 + Loose Inzer Gripper knee wraps
    536x1
    576x3 + Tightest wrap, out of the monolift

    EFS Yoke Bar Good Mornings
    155x2x8

    Meh..

    GHR
    BWx10

    Meh.. going home.

    This is the most I've repped over 500 I think without any reverse band attatched. This estimates my max to be around 610-615.

    If my shoulder holds up, I'll hit a bench max on tuesday then deload.

    2 scoops again prewo. Slight jitters during warmups which I was hoping they wore off and they did. It was difficult for me to get mentally into it tonight but by the time I had 576 loaded, my brain clicked on. No amount if prewo would have made me want to stay in the gym after that though lol

    2 scoops is where it's at for me too. The energy and focus last me all day, as I workout early mornings. By the way beasting on those workouts.

  5. Beast-Mode is on buddy! Hell of some great numbers you have, killin it!

  6. Thanks, JD! Too bad my upper body numbers are no where comparable lol

    That being said..

    -Upper

    2-Board Bench Press
    225x8
    235x8
    255x8

    Neutral Grip Incline DB Press
    60x2x15

    Pendlay Rows
    225x5
    245x5
    265x5
    275x5
    225x10

    Cable Tricep Pushdowns/Miniband Facepull
    90x4x15/Doubled x3x20

    Rear Delt Destroyer

    Cuban Press/Low Pulley External Rotation

    I'm going to be smart. My shoulder is feeling starting to feel better so I'm not going to ruin it. I'll 2-Board press for a bit, then floor press, then I'll work into full ROM bench press. I don't want to risk anything. That being said, it felt nice to get a chest pump again.

    2 scoops is where it's at for me. I didn't experience jitters today. Just crisp energy throughout. Pumps were good today as well. It's been a while since I've had a chest pump.

    My upper body numbers are pretty solid. My lower body numbers are somewhere between William Hung and one of the Jonas brothers.

  9. Deload Lower
    * I'm just doing whatever this week. Letting my body and mind rest and no serious training. New training cycle will start up next week

    Vogelphol Pulls (set x rep)

    SSB Rear Lunge
    157x3x8

    GHR
    BWx3x15

    Reverse Hyper
    BWx3x15

    Facepulls

    Vogelphol pulls suck. It makes you realize how important a braced neutral spine is.

    Ritual- 1.5 scoops today. I've been slightly sleep deprives from work so it was needed this morning.

    I feel like crap so I just got in and out as quick as I could. I took 2 scoops of Ritual about 20 minutes before my session. It gave me the motivation to suck it up and lift, regardless of it being a light session or not. Not tingles anymore. The energy is still as good as it was my first few dosings. Solid.

    Very much so!

    Warmup
    Same shít as always + EFS hip series

    -Parallel, Sumo, Wrestling shoe, Belt
    425x3x8

    Suspended SSB Good Mornings
    245x2x8
    295x10 +Belt
    335x12 lol
    425x1 too much knee bend
    425x1 little less knee band, not satisfied though

    Bodyweight lunges + Facepulls

    That's all I got. This concludes my Ritual log unfortunetly. I gave 2 scoops to a fellow gym member (I'll let you know what he thinks!) and I spilt a little bit, maybe a scoop or so, so I'm running thin in the bottle here. I'll post up a proper review for you guys tonight! Thanks again!
