    Comments:

    Finally, I got a chance to beat the log book! What a workout! I went to the gym after a 3-hour nap and was yawning all the time but weights were moving up nicely. I am especially happy with the dumbbell press: I felt like I could have added 10lb per side easily and still do it. It was the first time in my life I was using a dip belt too, before I used to hold a dumbbell between my feet. I felt weak on T-bar rows mostly because mind-muscle connection was lacking completely.

    The weights are going up but I donít feel any different. The only thing worth mentioning is the awesome pump I got without feeling pumped at all: muscle fullness if you will. I normally either get no pumps or good pumps that last until I am done with cardio. Not today, this definitely an exception, I look bigger than I feel and not the opposite.

    Hmmm, I checked and I didn't get it. Resend it to both [email protected] and again to [email protected] Surely it'll go through to one of them. Hopefully it works b/c I have quite a few questions for you.

    One question I will ask here though, what exactly is sumo leg press? Is it just a wider foot-placement?

    You put your feet high and wide, when you lower the platform your knees go behind your ears.

    I was totally stressed out about an exam the next day that I just rushed through this workout. Not bad after all, everything went up as planned. Nothing else to report.

    No cardio again today because of the exam. I am sleep-deprived and exhausted. Legs donít feel like they have been beaten to death the day before, which is good. Letís see what tomorrow brings.

    I'm not losing any fat but I am not gaining any either, I just pinched myself with the calipers in order to better answer your question. Today is day 16 though, I expect it to really kick around the 30 day mark.

    Comments:

    Last nightís sleep wasnít perfect and I compensated with a 3-hour nap after work. I hit the gym immediately afterwards for what turned out to be an average and relaxed workout overall. Everything went up but I was not into the zone by any means, at least not until after the heavy set on deadlifts. Those felt good and I think I am jumping straight to three plates per side next time, which I have never done.

    Lots of sleep and lots of cheesecake. It is amazing how recovered I feel after deadlifting, none of the usual lower back discomfort either.

    Todayís workout turned out better than I expected. The first three exercises went up as planned but I was surprised at the rep increase on SLDL. I couldíve gotten 20 reps but my hams were burning at that point, I felt something on my last two reps where the hams meet the glutes so I decided to stop there. I added two plates and two reps on the heavy set of leg press and one plate and two reps on the widowmaker. I think I did a straight set of 17, I couldíve gotten 25 reps maybe, but knowing my [****ty] recovery abilities I decided not to push as early as 4 weeks into my blast.

    Tomorrow I am finishing the first box of HLG but I donít have much comment on it. Todayís workout was good but nothing out of ordinary mentally. I am recovering fine so the effects are subtle for the most part. I am sleeping a lot more but that could be due to lack of sleep last Wednesday night and not that much due to lethargy: time will tell. Also, I hopped on the scale at the gym today before my workout [a week ahead of the official weigh-in] and I am up 6lb. The best is yet to come though, this week Iím upping X-Factor to 4 a day.

    Comments:

    Todayís workout started out great, I added 20lb on the first two exercises and only lost a rep on the first one. Next time I will put 2 plates per side on the incline press to get to the projected rep range of 11ó15 rest-paused. Floor skullcrushers felt heavy but my arms are quite weak so that is to be expected, especially after two heavy compound exercises. I barely added reps on the chin-ups, I was out of kerosene by then. I almost felt asleep doing rack pulls, something pulled in the left shoulder blade area again and I was quite disappointed. Decided to not put three plates for the heavy set and to narrow the grip somewhat. I use a very wide grip to make up for the fact that I am pulling from knee level, not below, that extends the range of motion. Fortunately, a narrower grip solved the problem and I was pain-free.

    I will be out of town until Sunday and will not update by then. I will try and squeeze in a workout although I doubt it will be complete: I donít expect to find the same equipment. Happy turkey day everyone!

    I had the worst workout in a long time, Iíve been dragging ass all day long and it showed but after all, itís the Monday after the holidays. Everything went up as expected but it could have been a bit better. My ears looked really big in the mirror when doing the dumbbell presses for some reason, never noticed them before. Again, I had an excellent pump I could not feel, just see once I got home.

    People typically overeat over the holidays, I underate. I seem to have lost a lot of water because my abs are showing up nicely again and if I shaved I would be able to see the veins in the lower abs or bulge of the veins at least. Therefore, I am very happy with the weight gain so far and I look even better in the mirror. I might have lost some fat too, but I will wait until the last week to take official caliper readings. I was heavier last week but that could have been due to anything. So far so good!

  24. You are doing great buddy. Fluctuations happens. Keep it up, and you're on your way to some serious mass
