    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.

  5. 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!

  9. 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.

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. We knew you'd show back up.

  14. 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!

  15. Just going to do a run down on supps I am taking:
    AI Sports DAA - 3g (no stomach discomfort)
    PES Erase - 3 caps
    Fish Oil - 2.1g EPA/DHA
    Creatrona - 2g

    Pre- Ignite2 - 1 scoop
    ON Premium Whey Isolate

    Very basic stuff. Waiting on some other supps that I will run after this 30 days.

  16. 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.

  18. Ya after my cut ended, I kinda lost the drive to control everything. I was going hard in the gym but it wasn't consistent enough. No excuses tho. Gonna go to the gym after my 1 o'clock class

  21. 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.

    95x5

    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?
