  1. So my chest workout this morning went like this:

    Bench Press
    135x5
    155x5
    180x5

    Incline DB fly
    50x12 (RP +1 reps)
    50x12 (RP +2 reps)
    50x6+4 reps assisted

    HS decline press
    200x12 (RP +2 reps)
    200x9 (RP +1 rep)
    200x9 (RP +1 rep)

    One arm low pulley cable cross over
    55x12 (RP +5lbs)
    55x12
    55x12

    Chest Dips
    BWx10
    BWx10
    BWx7

    Machine tricep extension
    85x16 (RP +4 reps)
    85x10
    85x8

    Cardio: Treadmill
    10 min (inc 6 / spd 4) Walk
    10 min (no inc / spd 6) Jog
    8 min (inc 4 / spd 4) Walk
    2 min (no inc / spd 8) Run

    Observations:
    Felt like I was recovering from exercise pretty quickly. Was able to dig deep to find that last bit of strength needed to get a couple more reps. Everything just felt more solid and connected. Movements were more specific and focused. Also when I was running, I felt like I could just keep going, plus I recovered so well that when I got to the end of my last stretch of walking, I decided to kick it into gear and really push myself. It felt great!

    Going to throw a half scoop of Muscle Marinade in with my Alphamine tomorrow morning while dosing ABE and D-pol. Should be fun!

    Food:
    I ended up at 2337 kcals, 248g protein, 174.5g carbs, 68g fats. I've got some tweaking to do but should have it all dialed in by the end of the day.

    As always...critiques welcome!

    Ahh!! I'm getting so anxious to run my tub of alphamine!! Get it man!

  4. If I could chip in Aabeta E great og erase also;

    for training nothing works recomp like tabata

    20 sec work 10 rest repeat for 8 rounds,

    I use kettles, sandbags and bb to do them.

    depending on what you have try the following

    1. bb front squat, 50% or less of 1 mr

    2. bb lunges,

    3. crazy **** I do burpee to a clean and press with bb can extend to 30/10

    4. kb swings

    5. kb cleans ( work better for me than bb also sb ones are great;

    6. very light deadlift

    you will feel the lactic acid buildup and this stuff just burns of flab

  5. Remember that the last set on 5/3/1 is as many reps as possible and not limited to the target reps.

    Good point! I haven't been pushing that because I don't have a spotter and typically the designated reps is all I'm comfortable doing myself. But I think I'm going to start doing this, I'll just grab one of the guys to spot me on the last set!

    It's actually a very important part of 5/3/1. That is the set that should be all out, balls to the wall. Your starting weights may be too high if in week 1 you're only hitting 5 on your last set.

    Well I typically feel like I COULD do more but like I said, I don't want to push myself to failure without a spotter. But I want to do this right so I'll see just how much I can push that last set.

    You don't need to push to failure. Wendler himself recommends stopping 1-2 reps short of total failure.

    Exactly. You should be able to set rep PR's at certain weights without failing. Especially in the beginning. I think 2 cycles ago I benched 225x15, I knew at 15 I had to stop myself because I was getting close to total failure. And yes, I went with the start lower mentality :P

    That's what I had thought, which is why I went with this program because I wouldn't need a spotter. So if that's the case then I'm pretty much hitting that point on my last set.

  12. Got my macros tweaked...I think it looks a lot better! Tell me what you think.

    Totals
    Calories: 0 2592
    Protein: 0 283.6
    Carbs: 0.0 135.8
    *Fiber 0 15
    Fats: 0.00 102.50
    *Saturated 0.0 25.9
    *Poly 0 15.7
    *Mono 0 25.1

  13. WORKOUT - BACK

    Deadlift
    240x5
    280x5
    315x5

    Chins
    BWx9 (PR +1 rep)
    BWx6 (PR +1 rep)
    BWx4

    HS one arm iso-row
    115x12 (PR +5lbs)
    115x12
    115x12

    Straight arm push down
    170x12
    170x12
    140x15

    Was completely exhausted at this point. Tried to do v-bar PDs but had to drop it 20lbs from PR just to move the weight.

    V-bar PD
    100x10
    *And then I was DONE. Had nothing left.

    Cardio - treadmill
    20 min (inc 4 / spd 4) walk

    OBSERVATIONS
    I can tell I've really been pushing the limits of my CNS because I went into the gym pumped up and with lots of energy and then it just plummeted. When I was done though I still felt pretty good. I just need to give my body time to adjust to the PRs I'm pushing. I have a feeling I'm going to start jumping in weight.

    FOOD - By end of day
    Calories: 2367
    Protein: 258
    Carbs: 146.5
    Fats: 78.8
    *Still have some adjustments I need to make for tomorrow

  14. That's not CNS fatigue as that's not how it works; the more likely possibility is that is the result of undereating and it lowering your overall work capacity.

    What wave is this for you on 5/3/1?

    Then you still should be getting 7-10 reps on the "5" week. Either you overestimated yourself or your forgot to take off 10% at the beginning once you calculated your numbers for each week. Did you buy the book?

    I have a phone app specifically for calculating 5/3/1 weights. You input the most weight you've done for the amount of reps and it figures a 1RM then takes 90% of that and breaks down what my weight is for all 3 sets.

    I hadn't bought the book, but I just found it on my kindle and got it lol. Guess I've got some reading to do.

    Adjust everything according to the book. It takes a little more time to get everything set up, but gives you a much better feel of the program.

    Will do! Thanks for the insight! Hey, by the way, does my diet look more on point? Not what I'm getting in today but rather the calculations I posted earlier? I'll start hitting those numbers tomorrow if it looks okay.

    Throw in another 1-2C of vegetables for more fiber, but the macros look good.

  21. WORKOUT - SHOULDERS

    Standing overhead BB press
    80x5
    95x5
    105x8
    *Maybe could have got one more on last set. Should I figure my 1RM 5lbs lower for the rest of this phase or keep it as is?

    Seated cable row to neck
    40x15
    40x17
    50x12
    *Was experimenting to see what hit my rear delts the best. I definitely had the best mental connection with this exercise than any other. Really got them to burn.

    Lateral DB raise
    20x12
    20x12
    15x12 (supinated grip)
    *Again just experimenting to see how different exercises felt

    HS Shrugs
    180x15
    230x15
    270x15

    Cardio - treadmill
    20 min (inc 6 / spd 4)

    OBSERVATIONS
    I definitely think I'm in need of a refeed. I didn't have much in the gym today. And when I got to minute 18 incline walking on the treadmill, I had a very strong sensation like I could puke. I don't necessarily know what that's a symptom of. I used to think it was when I took Anabeta OG on an empty stomach PrWO when I was on that stack, but I've been doing just fine with ABE so now I'm wondering what's causing it. I never throw up so it's strange when I get such a strong sensation to. My heart rate was higher than normal when walking. It's usual mid 140s by the end of 10 min incline but today I was pushing 160 and definitely felt winded. There has been some extra stews at work and I've probably been averaging 5-6 hours of sleep. Plus we have a baby due in a couple weeks so there's a lot of stuff we're trying to get done (like finishing the basement). Anyway, kinda went through the motions today.

    Any thoughts? Expertise? Could use some right about now.

  22. That last set looks much better as you should be getting several reps over the minimum, but still pull back 1-2 reps. I'm not a huge fan of using the 5/3/1 principle and then going the BB'ing route with the assistance lifts, but it can still work for strength gains.

    Regarding the other stuff, hit a solid refeed this weekend and try to get some sleep. Stress can negatively impact everything in life and could explain the early fatigue and nausea.

  23. I was going to say exactly what Rodja said. Sleep, minimize stress, refeed. the stress part may be harder since you have a baby on the way.

    also, when do you workout and what is timing of eating around that?

    I agree on last set looking much better btw.

  24. I agree with Rodja hence my initial comment about your calories being too low. I've had something similar a few months ago. Dropped my cals too quickly and the first couple of weeks I was fine but then energy plummeted and working out was a struggle and not enjoyable. What I've done is to compensate is after 4 weeks have a week or two eating at maintenance or just over and that helped to continue cutting. I'm not suggesting you do the same, but it does sound like you need a refeed. I would also listen to the body - see if the refeed improves things.

  25. Thanks a lot guys, for all the help! I'll focus on my diet this weekend and try to get more sleep. Stress at work is lower now so doing better there. I think I'm doing too much accessory work too. Reading this book will help me fine tune things and get to where I need to be.
