    was kinda bored, and missing the gym, so I went and worked out in the community gym this evening. Used 1 scoop ragnarok + hemodraulix

    flat smith bp 125x6,155x6, 165x4, 155x5
    incline smith press 115x10, 125x9
    decline db press 35x15, 35x13
    machine press 75x14

    standing triceps extension 50x6, 50x6, 45x6
    machine triceps pushdowns 62.5x10, 62.5x9
    pushdowns using lat machine 50x14, 35x14

    incline db flies 15x19

    pretty good feeling workout! my triceps are completely cranked to where its hard to type even. my chest is pretty pumped too. I think I have to switch to db chest presses, its really almost entirely right shoulder limiting me. after the 2nd or third rep over 100lbs, it starts to hurt. Doesn't hurt with dumbbells.

    went for anothe evening workout, back/bis. One scoop of ragnarok on a not empty stomach + hemodraulix.

    wide grip pulldowns 100x20, 150x6, 160x6, 170x4, 150x6
    close grip rows 120x10, 130x8
    db rows 40x20, 40x20

    bb curls 60x6, 60x6, 70x3, 60x5
    incline hammer curls 25x10, 25x10
    concentration curls 25x15, 25x12
    ez curls 40x17, 35x16, 25x19 (dang well couldn't reach 20)

    QUITE nice. really really nice. best pump in a long time. Good vascularity too for me, could see the major vein on each bicep, and a few more were visible on the forearm than usual.

    I had some moderate doms from yesterday too, expecting tomorrow to be even moreso

    forgot to update this morning

    leg lifts bentx20, straightx15
    oblique machine 100x10
    decline crunch 25, 25
    side bends 35x20
    leg pull ins 100x15, 100x13
    decline crunch 25

    and then 24 min of mid intensity cardio heartrate from 130-145. I'm now 24 hours into a slightly modified velocity diet (cant use fish oil while on x-factor) and its going decently. Hunger is down already, and i've had solid bowel movements so I must be adding enough psyllium husks. Not quite sure how long I will do this for, at least a week, possibly longer depending on progress and how I feel. Then 2-3 weeks transitioning back, slowly adding 1 solid meal a day every few days. I should be able to hit 185lbs and be at maybe 12%ish bodyfat within a couple weeks like this was 193 this morning. I'm using the diet tracker too now just to have it all be in there

    Get some rest Easy. Sometimes it's better not to workout to give yourself a chance to heal.

    another unintentional off day. damn this upper respiratory whatever it is. I was going to go and do a light workout, but the combination of feeling sick and the daylight savings change kept me in bed late.

    finally back to the gym. workout was a little light, both from feeling ill, as well as only 150cal worth of intake prior to it this morning... damn velocity diet.

    flat db bp 45x10, 55x10, 60x5, 50x9 - really forearms + stabilizers were limiting, I bet i'll be using 75s in a couple weeks.
    incline db press - 40x10, 40x10, 40x10
    pec dec 50x15, 50x15

    lying triceps extensions 50x10, 50x10, 50x9
    standing db triceps extension 20x10, 20x10
    triceps pushdown 100x25

    pec dec 35x25

    Was a pretty good workout given no preworkout stims or pump agents. triceps felt good at the end

    Hey Easy -- I just skimmed over this log, and thought I'd offer a little advice regarding your shoulder probs. (At my age, having lifted on and off for 30 years, I've injured just about everything, lol.)
    First of all, if you're still following this workout schedule you outlined in post #1, I'd switch Mon and Wed. This will give your triceps and front delts 3 days to recover before your Fri shoulder work, rather than just the one day off alloted in the above scheme.
    But even more important, stop doing those silly "behind-the-neck" exercises -- it puts too much strain on the rotator cuff. Whether you're doing pushes or pulls, always keep the bar in front of your face, not behind.
    Good luck, bro. And congrats on the recomp you've accomplished over the last few months -- it really is noticeable.

    cool, thanks! I'll try that, actually I have shifted as of this week chest to the first slot (was tues this week, but whatever) then back today, and shoulders will be fri. I'll shift to military presses too, its time for a change anyhow

    I dont do behind the head either, puts your shoulders in a position that makes it suseptible to injury. With my shoulder history, ill avoid it all together.

    legs today. no preworkout stuff (theres a reason i'll explain when I can )

    leg press 350x10, 440x6, 530x6, 620x2 (might have been able to squeak a 3rd, not sure but didn't really want to), 440x6
    my legs were so shaky I decided to go to shoulders and make up my mind whether to do more legs after

    front ext supersetted with lateral ext - 12.5x10, 10x10
    arnold presses 30x10,30x10,30x9
    delt machine 75x19, 65x12

    and stil my legs were all wobbly, didn't do any more. it was late as well. plus i'm still on stupid low cals, preworkout all I had was some bcaas + a banana. legs are REALLY hard to keep energy levels high on without some serious preworkout supps and a decent amount of calories. right now its more about maintaining the muscle while I drop the fat, which is working out pretty well

    thanks guys, its some rough work. I'm about 5'10", and a medium to small frame at the wrists (but fairly wide at the shoulders). I don't exactly have a target weight so much as a target bodyfat level I think at 180 i'll be pretty close to where I want to be. looking to see abs, not have love handles I think i'll hit around 10-12% at 180.

    thanks I'm finally where I feel like i'm in the home stretch, on round one. Then I guess I start the next couple years of trying to gain back another 10-20lbs keeping it all muscle. I think real world long term goal is to be at around 190-195, and have a 2-4 pack

    If you don't mind me asking. What exactly are scapular rows? I have heard good things about them, but can't seem to find a video or a picture that shows what it is exactly.

    first workout on the home gym today, so I need to tinker with weights and settings some.

    flat bb press - 90x10, 140x4, 120x6, 90x8
    incline db press 90x10, 90x10, 90x9
    flat db flies 16x15, 16x14 (6lb cheap olympic plate holding db handles)
    incline db flies 16x12, 16x8

    lying ez bar triceps ext 53x10, 53x9, 53x7 (13lb cheap olympic ezbar)
    standing ez triceps ext 43x12, 43x11
    tricep pushdowns 120x2, 90x4, 70x4

    pushups 12, 10

    the triceps pushdowns it must just be something in the way the machine works, cause damn, even 90 was really rough compared to 130 on a cable machine at the gym. A nice workout, solid tricep pump + pec feel pretty well worked out. still going to have to play around some more with the chest workout segments. I think too next time i'll start with the pushups, for prefatiguing purpose. the 140 caused my right shoulder to start to hurt, which is why I stopped it. I'm going to have to really concentrate on all the other ways to work chest if that will always limit me.

    back + bis, at home in the evening. I'm diggin the new home gym

    scapular rows (no idea on bar weight for any of these) 160x10, 160x10
    wide grip pulldowns 160x8, 160x7, 160x6
    high rows 70x6, 70x6, 70x5
    db rows 46x20

    preacher curls 30x6, 30x6, 30x5 - no idea what the arm on this weighs
    incline hammer curls 26x12, 26x8, 26x8
    ez curls 53x12, 53x9, 53x8

    not too bad! the preacher curls kinda suck to write from an ego perspective, but this machine is all 3" tubular steel. So I have no idea what that assembly weighs, but it could be 20-30lbs easily. same with the pulldowns. At least from here on in the weights should all be relative.

    quite a nice workout. the doms are hanging around, but not horrifying.
