    Great pump and energy from ignite2 and hemavol. Wild watermelon isn't the best flavor tho but mixed with lemon drop hemavol and a lot of water it does just fine. Only problem is I go to class and get a nice sweat going walking a mile.
    Duude get that bench up!

    Haha I'm trying man. Bench has always been my worst lift. I'm focusing on bench more now. Gotta get those numbers somewhat respectable

    285 5x5 went great last. Overhead press is stalled at 120. Gonna back it down next week. Deadlifts are at 315x5 with 255x5 and 285x5 as working sets before. Can't wait til I hit 315 for 5 reps in a few weeks. Might have to dial it back to 3 sets but really that wouldn't be the end of the world. Wanted to get some bench work in this morning but the rec center is closed. Oh well, squat bench row tomorrow. I think I got 290 easy on 5x5.

    Weighed in at 177 this morning. Love handles are coming back, layer of fat on my abs but I can still see a little definition. Starting to count calories again, i had only been counting protein and estimating caloric intake but that aint cutting it now. Gonna do a lean bulk at 200 calorie surplus until December, maintenance December until march or April depending on how I look. Cut til July again to see how far I can take it.

    Are you located in Boulder Co? If so, is it flooding there?

    Ya I'm in boulder. It was flooding pretty good. Our basement has water in it and unfortunately that's where my room is. We've been getting up every couple hours to bail water out of our stairwell and clean the water up. Hopefully the rec is open tomorrow. I'm just thankful we are up on the hill and not near the creek. My friends on the creek lost basically everything. I spent a couple hours at my neighbors house getting water out of their basement but the water was coming in at the same rate

    House started to flood again. Guy came out to pull the carpet and padding so we don't get mold. Gotta hit the gym tomorrow morning since the rec closed before I could go today

    Dude how the hell is campus not closed tomorrow. I'm pissed.

    If you need a place to store **** I know it's a bit of a ways but I'm living high and dry over here in Denver and could probably swing by your place after class tomorrow. Regardless, I was thinking about how cool it is to have a fellow buff on these forums and we should find a way to benefit from it!

    Ya it's been a pretty big flood. So much damage. No one saw it coming. I don't have a room right now due to having to dry out my carpet so hopefully my landlord will fix that.

    Ya I have no clue why they are opening campus tomorrow. So many roads are still closed it is ridiculous. I can't even imagine how bad your drive will be tomorrow. It really is cool that you are on here too as a buff. Definitely gotta meet up or something sometime

    I moved all of my stuff upstairs so it's all safe

    After a bit of a lay off I decided not to go for 290. I felt a bit off today as my back is wrecked from sleeping on a couch.
    Squat 5x5 @ 285
    Bench 5x5 @ 180
    Row 5x5 @ 180

    Don't. Be. A. Pusspad. The longer you are inconsistent the harder it is to get back into gear. Just do some stretches in the morning and you should be find. 5 days off should leave your body refreshed and ready to go for more!

    Oh for sure. With the flooding and campus being closed I didn't get a chance to lift on the weekend but I'm back in it now. Don't worry, I ain't bailing on this.

    My take on Spicy Pork Bulgogi:


    2 lbs pork tenderloin cut into thin slices
    2 jars red chili garlic paste
    2 stalks green onions chopped
    1 yellow onion chopped
    3 cloves garlic crushed
    1 jalapeno sliced
    2 teaspoons sesame oil
    2 teaspoons ginger paste
    1/4 cup soy sauce

    Marinated for an hour and then cooked in a pan. Should have probably done them on the grill but it still tasted amazing. Served with a cup of brown rice. Got plenty of leftovers too

    When you gunna break 300 on that squat?! It's been a while now at 290! It's only 10 more lbs, you should go for it!
    Depending on how my warmup and stretches go tomorrow I will either hit 295 or 300. Probably gonna go for 300 since it is so close. I have hit 300 for 5 before but not for 5 sets. Gonna be tough but I think I got it

    Dude if you had enough juice for those deadlifts afterwards you definitely will be able to!

    295 was good on Saturday. Knocked it out relatively quick.

    Today on 300, not so much. I don't know what it was but I got done with 3 sets of 300 feeling pretty good. I thought I had the last 2 sets in the bag but going down on the 4th rep of the 4th set I felt a sharp pain right through the middle of my right knee cap and on my left side near the groin, almost simultaneously. Grinded out that rep and racked it. Still having a bit of pain through my left groin area right now. I'm not sure what it is but I will assess the pain later today. If I don't feel 100% on Wednesday, I am gonna back it down and squat 1-2 times a week instead of 3 at lower weights while there is still pain.

    Good work getting reps done but that pain you describe sounds scary. Hopefully you are just fine

    I hope I am fine too. It was kind of scary because I felt like I had no strength for a second. I was about to bail on it but regained a bit of strength to get it back up and called it on squats after that. Still knocked out 185x5x5 on bench and rows after but I was definitely affected by the groin throughout the rest of the workout. My leg drive and tightness on bench was pathetic.

    Sorry for the lack of updates. School and work takes up a lot of my time right now. Nailed 300 5x5 on Thursday after using Wednesday as a mobility day with a lot of foam rolling, lacrosse ball work and dynamic stretching. It really helped and I felt extremely good on Thursday. I'll be going to the rec this week to keep the progress going on squat and deads.

    Friday I got a good bench day of 190 5x5 and rows 190 3x5. Rows are definitely slowing down now. Saturday I did OHP 115 5x5 and pull ups supersetted with chest flies.

    Today I did incline 135 5x5 and supersetted tris and bis with skullcrushers and curls, finished off with some incline pullovers.

    Gonna start DAA and Erase tomorrow. First go at DAA so we will see how it works for me.

    Yesterday I dialed in 300 on squat for 5x5 again, making sure my form was good. I feel confident to keep it going so I'll up the weight next time.

    Today I did front squats 185 for 5x5. I am still trying to get my form down on front squat. I started doing them about a month ago so I'm still learning. Did 195 5x5 on bench and then supersetted pullups, standing skullcrushers and curls. Arm pump was ridiculous!

    Counting calories now. Going to buckle down and focus on getting big. I've been too lackadaisical on this stuff.
    Yesterdays intake:



    Todays intake:



    I'm trying to find where I can gain slowly with calories so these next couple weeks will be trying out different calories and macros.

    Back for good now. October was a rough month. All in all did a couple weeks of half assed workouts because I was feeling run down and then took a deload week. Cleared my head this past week about some issues and laid out 6 months of 5/3/1. Had success with it before so I'm back on 100%. Doing BBB as my accessory work with and extra isolation thrown in at the end.

    Last nights lift:
    Walked a mile to the rec
    OHP:
    Did a few minutes of warmup sets and then went into it focused
    80x5
    95x5
    105x9
    65x10x5

    Face pulls:
    40x10x3
    50x10x2

    10 minute cool down on the bike
    Walked the mile back home

    Thanks guys! I realized that I was missing the passion to train and was just going through the motions. Now I'm back with a clear head and goals to get huge.

    125x5
    145x5
    165x9
    95x10x5

    185x3

    Straight Bar Tricep Pushdown:

    60x10
    70x10
    80x10
    90x10
    100x10

    Good lift today. Really focusing on bench form.
    Couple things though:
    Getting a good arch going at the beginning
    Body is tight all the way through on the first few reps
    Shoulders feel much better

    However, on the last couple reps I find my shoulder moving backwards as I am using leg drive. I try to dig my traps into the bench but my arch flattens out a bit and I move up on the bench.

    Any thoughts or pointers?

    Lying Leg Curl:

    All sets were done on 60 seconds rest or less. Got out of the gym in about 30 minutes. Walking home was extremely slow haha legs are shot but I feel good.

    Workout protocol is:
    Preworkout: ignite2, jack3d advanced or just ModernBCAAs if I don't want a stim
    Intra: ModernBCAAs
    Post: OEProtein or ON Whey Isolate plus I eat an orange on the way home
    Hour later: either 200g chicken or beef with whatever veggies and carbs I'm feeling (rice, pasta, potato)
