joh408's Longterm Quest for Fitness

Page 4 of 70 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. Squat 260x5x5
    Bench 170x5x5
    Row 170x5x5
    Standing skull crushers 45x5x2 65x5x2

    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.

  2. I'm thinking of a switch to 5/3/1 with the new principles lined up in Beyond 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler, putting in Joker sets. Either that or PHAT, GVT or FST-7. I want to do a bulk from now to this winter since I know a little bit on how to cut now but I'm not sure if I should go for hypertrophy or strength. Hypertrophy might be better now if I want to bulk and strength for when I am in a caloric deficit. 5/3/1 was awesome for me cutting out 40lbs from November to June while adding a little strength so I might just go back to it. Any thoughts?

  3. Sorry for the lack of updates. Been focusing a lot on bench lately but not neglecting anything else. I think I'm really close to hitting 2 plates on bench. I gotta max out soon but it's raining so I can't use my backyard gym. Gotta go to the rec center or 24 today

  4. Good to see you are still at it.

  5. Ya man still going at it. Today should be right around 285 5x5 on squat. Hopefully I can nail it. Diet has been suspect but I'm going to tighten it up now

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  15. 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

  16. Man after taking Thursday-Monday off from lifting combined with sleeping on the couch I am sore all over from yesterday's lift. Just gotta get back on the horse hard

    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.

  20. 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!

  24. 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.

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