today: back day
normally today would be a leg day, but due to my burnout the last few days (largely due to the piss poor diet i think) i decided to change it up.
I also lowered the weight on my lifts today and really focused on form, and going slow. I really tried to feel all my fibers pulling the weights up, and holding the weight at the top or the rep. (V, whats this called again?)
Deads-250x 4 sets of 8
I really tried to have perfect form on these. I'm probably not going to be going super heavy on deads for awhile. Not because of the back pumps, but because I personally feel like there are better exercises. All these do for me right now (that i feel) is wear out my forearms and give me a massive lower back pump.
Close Grip T-Bar Rows-three 45 plates and one 10 plate, 4 sets of 8
I took a count of 4 on the eccentric part of the lift, let the weight come to a complete rest at the bottom, and "exploded" through the concentric part. Doing it this way gives me a massive burn, and I really feel like I'm doing more work with less weight...
Wide Grip Bent Over Rows- 135 lbs 4 sets of 10
Same type of form in the T-Bar rows...I felt like I could have added more weight, but by the last set I was really struggling to get the bar all the way to my chest.
Wide Grip Pull Downs- 100 lbs (machine weight)
My Lats are notoriously weak for my size...I've tried really hard to strengthen them for years without much luck...I've always gone in front of the head, I was taught the it puts too much strain on the shoulders to go behind the head, but I went behind the head today, and definitely felt like my lats did a lot more work...again with less weight...
Hammer Rows- 45 and a 25 on each arm. 3 sets of 8
I just wanted to give this exercise a try. There's a guy with a massive back at my gym who swears by this machine. I was actually pretty happy with it, I'm giong to find a way to work it into my routine.
Good News: My sx, taurine, and glycobol should be here tomorrow. I'm pretty excited

If ur diet is clean, itll help with cutting. Should be amazing with you.
When bulking, you can lean bulk more easily. Basically controls blood sugar/insulin. Controls breakdown of carbs and stuff.

here's the diet i'm planning on following.
44 grams whey, 1 cup of oats
workout 8:30 or 9:00
Powo-usually around 10:30-11:00 44 grams whey, one banana. (the carb had been table sugar in the past)
12:00-chicken breast and 1/4 a sweet potato or a half a cup (measure dry) of brown rice
3:00-roast on half a whole wheat roll
5:00-chicken breast and a large amount of a low carb veggie
8:00-large glass of fat free milk.
I'm not sure if that's enough calories...

1 scoop Whey Protein
2 Slices Wheat Bread
2 Tbsp. jelly
3 Whole eggs + 3 white eggs
2 cups oatmeal
2 scoops casein protein or cottage cheese
2 slices whole wheat bread
1 tbsp. jelly
1 tbsp. peanut butter
6 oz deli turkey/ Chicken Breast
2 slices whole wheat bread
1 tbsp. mustard
2 cups mixed greed salad
1 tbsp. olive oil/vinegar dressing
1 scoop whey protein
1 large apple
2 scoops whey protein
Skim milk 12 oz
6-8 oz Chicken Breast
1 large sweet potato
1 cup chopped broccoli
2 cups mixed green salad
1 tbsp. olive oil/vinegar dressing
2 Scoops Casein protein Or some cottage cheese, fat free
1 cup oatmeal
1 oz. Walnuts (14 halves)
5-10 g BCAAs
Pre workout you may want to try 1 hour before working out. If you cant supplement with protein, find something good carb based with some decent protein. I never try to really not eat prior to working out, my workout s are usually pretty intense. You can sip Bcaa’s during. I mix my shakes with skim milk, but you can do what you feel.
You can throw in some fish if you get tired of chicken, but ive put everything pretty much around things you can have easy access to.
Casein Protein is a good investment if you have the money, I find a 4lb jug can usually last 2 months and more depending how I rely on it. Keep in mind you may not feel as full, due to the geling in your stomach. You can easily throw in Cottage cheese as a sub, if your funds are low.
Macros are about 330-3600 calories, 350-360 g protein, 400g carbs, and 97g of fat.

Good work natty,
I had been looking at the glycobol for when my ap runs out...but couldn't justify the cost just yet. Guess mom decided to go all out on the birthday; she has a friend who makes gourmet cakes so now I really have to eat some cake lol. Not looking forward to all that gluttony too much.
Cheers man, keep it up; you're keeping the body guessing and that's what's important.

You can move the pre workout to first thing and move everything forward. I use egss for the nutritional value and egg whites for cheap protein. Sub something in the can give you not an overwhelming amount of fat. You can move alot of those carbs earlier, just tinker to see how you are affected.

Yea i know what you mean. I had an old cam for the longest, cant decide if i want a new one because whenever i carry it i never need it. There are those times when i say, "dang wish i had a new cam".
No problem man, any help you need ill be here. I know you are going to absolutely kill it. Keep on doing what you do, i know those lbs are going to melt off.

I'm going to try to put these in an easier to read format...
Beginning Notes:I slept great last night, but I think I might have slept walked because there's a massive gash on my shin...
Squats225x10, 335x6, 275x 8 (bench squats) 225 x 8 (bench squats)
Notes:I was really tight today, and had problems getting my butt down so I lowered the weight after for the bench squats and really focused on proper form...
Lunges55's x 8 60's x 8 70's x 8 70's x 6
Notes: Good improvement on these...much much better than I thought it would be.
Lying Leg Curls100 (machine weight) x 4 sets of 8, 60 x 1 set of max reps very slow
Calf Raises400 lbs (all machine weight) plus a 45+ three 35's x 4 sets of 20
Notes I'm going to have to start doing burnouts. I didn't feel these at all...
Hack Squatsone plate on each side x 1 set of 25
News:I just got my sx, glycobol and taurine in the mail. I'm bummed because the shirt that came with the glycobol is a large...I haven't fit in a large since i was 10. I just put it on and flexed and the seems stretched in my arms hahaha. Maybe after i cut the fat, i'll wear it around and look like a d-bag with a super tight shirt....or maybe i'll give it to jdg when we workout.

Alright, I don't know if it's the glycobol, or the taurine, or the mix of the two, but I'm super energized right now.
Like I'm pumped. I really want to go back to the gym, but I'm about to go to work.
I literally feel like i just drank 3 scoops of shock....

Ya your probably feeling the glycobol. Nutrient Repartitioners tend to have work like that for me too, especially if I haven't used them in awhile. I get quick increases in vascularity, muscle fullness, and energy from all the carbs.
