What I do with the half clean is I stand with the bar, then explosively clean it, then press it, then "de-clean" (um....not sure what to call it bc I don't drop the bar, I let it fall on the tops of my quads while keeping my back straight. Works wonders for my finisher and this is how I finish every Back and SHoulder day.
But as Rosie said, to each thier own, but I'd be willing to bet those that don't stand and do them bc thier lower back, need to work on thier core (assuming it isn't injured).
TH, I bet your bis and tris are FRIED after being shelved for the bit they were. Feels good, eh?

I mean honestly they feel fine now lol, but post workout it hurt to move them at all. I dont think I said what all I ate so I will here.
2 scoops Muscle Replenisher
8 inch double meat sub turkey and ham
bowl of fried rice
Machine seated overhead tricep ext
Seated tricep ext
Reverse cable tricep ext
Straight BB curls
As far as how I did my sets I started with a decent weight went till I couldnt get anymore reps. Then 10 deep breathes drop to a slightly lighter weight and go to failure again. 10 more deep breathes slight drop in weight again.
Never had very good arms to be honest. Ok well they didnt look half bad when I wrestled

I got up to almost 240 on my last cycle. That is a bit of weight to be walking around with when you are only 5'7"(being honest). Especially since Im not as lean as I would like. I lift because I love to lift, but damn it would be nice to look good in the mirror. Right now Im about 220. I have toyed with the idea of adding in fat loss supps, but think it would be better if I left them out to see the true potential of this diet(for me). Of course that doesnt mean Im going to cut out the nutrient partitioners
Going shooting tomorrow after not going in a while. Wish me luck cant have my old man shoot better than me or I will never hear the end of it lol.
Interested to see how sore I am going to be tomorrow morning. Surprised my legs and ass are not more sore after squats yesterday.

I had no idea what they said about spin teachers, lol I used to teach a long time ago, and have since gotten into it....GREAT workout and I like pushing myself....
Sounds like you have a plan and glad your feeling better, will try to be around more, harder lately with work, spin and still barfing...
RIP Ryan, :(

coming from the deadlift king himself........
You're being too hard on yourself. You said you were tired of being a little heavy but lifting a ton and you are going to focus on some aesthetics, right?
Switching gears is going to be like starting all over bc your goals are going to be so different and your methods HAVE to be different.
Pulling the weight I saw you pull in the youtube video......you have great potential my friend. Keep the faith in yourself and remember you are your own worst critic.

Also wanted to agree with what morry posted. Changing goals is hard to do, man. Just like a lot of what we do, it comes down to you vs. your ego - you've gotta beat it. Focus on one thing at a time. Sacrifice a little strength short-term to gain the goal you currently want, then slowly build yourself back up to that strength. You can do it, bud.

Arnt you doing 5/3/1? Im positive you can achieve your physique goals and maintain strength. Ive been running a bodybuilder 5/3/1 hybrid for about 6 monthes now. My gains are great and my strength is on the rise. deads and squats are up 60lbs and my bench and oh press are up 45lbs. You got this!

I know the goal is to change my diet first to find what will be most effective for me. I like 5/3/1 for strength, but I feel like it can be a good basis for my goal on leaning down. Still want that dense look you get with heavy weights.
I wont lie I am looking forward to when I can put some more "gym candy" in my body. But that is def a ways off. Got to make sure everything is recovered.

Didnt go shooting today so that was a shitty way to start the day off. Helped a friend(and workout partner) who recently had to get a new truck. He bought a chicken pizza and we watched the Strikeforce PPV. Ended up eating out of schedule, but it is hard to say no to free pizza lol. Also found out he is back to lifting, but he is going on base to the fitness center. The fitness center is free so hard to argue. I just renewed for this month so Im staying at the gym. The fitness center might have some girls to look at but honestly not that much. Plus it gets so crowded. Was kind of funny having people watch me lift though lol. I swear when I was deadlifting I looked up and half the people stopped working out to watch me. The sad part is they probably didnt even know what I was doing just saw a bunch of plates.
The arms are still really sore. Forgot how this felt. Think I might make it a habit of including an arm day. It is nice to beat them up.

Another rest day today and much needed. Still plenty sore from my arm day on Friday. Triceps are still very much in pain. Biceps feel pretty much healed up which isnt unusual they never really get all that sore.
For my delayed lunch I had a footlong sub from Firehouse. Thinking I should have added a protein shake to it. Then about 4 hours later I had steak(10-12oz), spinach, and some protein fluff(Lean Gains). Pretty sure I will be full until the next time to eat lol.
Tomorrow will be back so here we go...
Deadlift (570) with  being my adjusted max:
We shall see what I do to follow that up.
