    Monday Heavy legs
    Tuesday light push day and cardio
    Wednesday heavy pull day
    Thursday light legs and cardio
    Friday heavy push day
    Saturday light pull day and cardio
    Thanks for your input Lukester! Appreciate your advice as always. I will play around with it and see what my body responds to best.

    Never thought about it that way. Doing legs before heavy back day hasn't seemed to affect my workouts too much, but that is something to consider. BTW, did you get my PM?

    Frustrated with back squats. Sometimes I feel like I am making progress, but then I have a day like today where the squats just feel off. I know I need to back off of them and concentrate on form. It's just a shot to the ego, b/c I want to go heavier and I want to go ATG. I'm gonna probably switch it up with some bulgarian split squats next time.

    Whenever I start to feel demotivated because I'm not seeing the results I want...i just look at where I was when I started and am thankful that at least I'm not back there anymore. 2 steps forward, 1 step back, 2 steps forward...you got this girl! ;-)

    Yep, I may have to dial it back and start with broom squats again, and go from there. I can still chip away at my other lifts. Marathon, not a race...

    Thanks for the kind words

    Warming up with light BBR's and felt a slight strain in my left pec area. Stretched it a bit before hitting the weights again. Rest of my back has been smoked. Right now I still have quite a bit of energy, even though my w/o finished up at 1.5 hrs. Resistance band crunches were interesting. First time doing these and I guess I miscalculated the distance between my arm and the floor, because I slammed my elbow in the floor pretty hard. That was fun.

    My right pec will cramp on deadlifts if i dont take an underhanded grip on that side...

    Jump Rope Intervals - 3 rounds - 20 min total

    1 min on (skipping)
    14 knee pushups
    *
    1 min on (both feet)
    14 toe touches
    *
    1 min on (jogging)
    14 bw squats
    *
    1 min on (single leg)
    *
    [40 sec rest]

    Planned on doing some Sprint intervals outside but it started to rain so I grabbed the jump rope and did some intervals inside. Had a nice sweat going due to no rest between exercises. Some tenderness in my ankle from hopping up and down, probably because they weren't used to it.

    Do you stretch it beforehand, huggy? It was so weird because I had maybe 50 lbs on the bar, not heavy at all, and it hit me during warm ups about 3 or 4 reps in. Never felt that before. Thanks for the tip! Will keep you updated.

    Put my carb up to good use today. Long-ish workout session, and my quads are gonna be sore tomorrow. I took a few days off from using pre-workouts, and today I started back up with my normal 1/2 scoop. Heart rate def increased during my first few sets of reverse lunges. Pretty crazy feeling.

    *Noticing my form start to break on front squats at 90lbs. Last set was all over the place. Also, had to switch to crossed arms for the last 2 sets b/c fingers started getting really sore with the other grip.

    Good tip I was stretching my wrists and shoulders prior to squats and it made a difference as well. Dat dere flexibility. I will play around with hand placement too because I start to grip the bar with only two fingers, then I pull dem elbows forward and in.

    Strapped for a bit of time today so switched to workout to the morning today. Not used to that so strength took a bit of a hit, but that's okay because I just kept my rest periods short and banged the work out in about 45 min.

    I was lazy yesterday so I didn't do chest. Just threw it in with shoulders today, no biggie. BTW, 6 ways is no joke!! Done with a controlled motion and really concentrating on the shoulders. Oh the burn.

  28. I've herd a few peeps rave on about DB six ways, I just jumped on YouTube to see what the fuss is about. Looks interesting might have to try them out next shoulder day.

    Mhm same here. Its a good way to hit multiple areas at the same time. Just be sure to warm up lots cuz I remember you saying you had shoulder issues. Let me know how it goes for you!

    Didn't go in with the intention of trying to max out on my DL since I only had about 40 minutes to workout, and barely ate beforehand, but I did, and that's always awesome! That's +5lbs added on from my 200lb PR back in March. Recorded myself at 185lb DL I think. Will put up for critique if I can figure out how.
