    Really enjoy the new dip belt. Chins and dips now feel like weight training and not cardio. It's a Harbinger and very comfortable.

    My deads felt good today. I needed one more rep to get a 1rm PR, but this is still my best lift on a 5/3/1 "one" day. It is also the first time I have pulled 440# raw. So I am still breaking new ground in this lift. Adding 10# to my raw max for Cycle #8 and taking a deload after I do my Bench and Squat days.

    WEIGHT CHECK:

    I hit 220 this morning! Started 5/3/1 7 Months ago at 212. I ran a 4 point caliper test and got 9% BF. I think just by eyeballing myself I bet I am really 10 to 12% (as you can see from my photo). So I packed on 8 pounds without adding any fat, so I am very happy with my 5/3/1 progress. Slow, steady, and forward. Great stuff. Wish I had this program years ago.

    Thanks man! Deload week for me is more of a mental deload. Lots of road bike, chins, dips, squats, front squats, and whatever the hell else I feel like doing. Everything done at whim, which gets me back in the mood for another 5/3/1 cycle.

    CYCLE 7 SUMMARY

    Just like the last cycle, I hit 7 PR's in this cycle. What is interesting is that I hit a PR on the flat bench everytime I stepped up to the plate. I had been getting stuck on the bench, but definitely busted through that plateau to gain some solid ground. I also PR'd my Squat with every attempt. The 7 PR's were:
    SQUAT: 11/3, 11/11 and 11/18
    BENCH: 11/2, 11/8 and 11/16
    DEADLIFT: 11/1
    OHP: N/A


    All maxes will be increased for Cycle 8:

    SQUAT: From 322 to 332.
    DEADS: From 517 to 527.
    BENCH: From 332 to 337.
    OHP: From 193 to 195.

    Damn 12 sided plates didn't cooperate with me this time. The last set I had to reset my footing and grip twice, ruining my flow and concentration. Oh well. Not a bad pull for me by any means.

    My elbows seem to be toughening up and getting less sore from deadlifting. My legs are also looking harder and meaner. I'm really liking the deadlift dividends.
    Dude, my gym has octagon shaped plates. Totally sucks for deads. Great log btw. Just curious, what is your protocol for cycling off pwo supps?

    Thanks. I do not cycle off Hemavol, and take it before every workout. When I am done with the Craze tub I will take a week or two off and replace that stim with something else. Not really a disciplined protocol; I tend to go with how I feel as far as PWOs go, and I really dislike going into the gym without some kind of stim.

    Opinions on this always welcomed.

    My pwo cocktail is Hemavol in tablet form (10), bulk creatine mono at 5 g, bulk caffeine at 100 mg, bulk beta alanine at 1 g...Lately I've been also adding 1000 mg creatinol-o-phosphate. I use this before every workout 5Xweek for 10 weeks. I then cycle off everything for 2-3 weeks. When I'm off, I do bulk BCAAs at 10,000 pre,5,000 intra, and 5000 post. Get decent pumps and energy off this approach, but I absolutely miss my reg pwo concoction when doing this. Not really planning on deviating from this pattern or selection.

    Not my best work. I finished a bottle of Anabeta OG at the start of my deload week. It's like my appetite hit a brick wall after eating like a beast while on Anabeta. Rather than force myself to eat I said "f - it" and let it slide. Today I am down to 217 from 220 and just not feeling very powerful today. My shoulders are freaking weak and the OHP is my problem exercise in the 5/3/1 lineup. I don't feel confident and am getting intimidated by the weight. Hope I can get my head back in the game and push it forward. Ordered another bottle of Anabeta OG. I took the increased appetite for granted while I was on it, and now I really miss it.

    Accessory work was weak today too. I gotta get myself back on track!

    Eh just got done with a holiday weekend, no one feels up to par. I'm sure you'll be more motivated for your next lift since you've recognized it now.

    How crazy is it that I lost 3# over Thanksgiving week? It's amazing how much 5/3/1 has changed me: I used to fight to keep weight off, now I fight to put it on. I will take the latter problem any day.

    Lost another pound. Just don't have the stomach for food. I went dirty yesterday for lunch and went to McD: Chicken, fries, ice cream. It seems the only way I can put some calories together. A fresh bottle of Anabeta OG is on the way.

    Felt much better at the gym today. 10 reps at 405# gives me a 1rm PR. Really felt like by glutes, quads, and hams pitched in equally for the effort. My form looks good as far as I can tell. Felt great leaving the gym and feel great now.

    405x10...**** yeah man. that's awesome. you can always drink your calories when you feel like you're majorly lacking. my breakfast is whey protein, whole milk, peanut butter, oats or granola into a blender. may not be the ideal meal but it gets me my macros easily. Anabeta is becoming my new favorite supplement. Tryin out slinsane right now

    you should replace your mcd's with sonic popcorn chicken...I hit that about once a week haha

    If you have no appetite, I suggest filling a blender with skim milk, oats, almond butter, banana, and cottage cheese. Better than Mcd. Unless of course you were due for a cheat meal. It's funny how you mention coming off the anabeta made you lose your appetite. When I came off ABE, my hunger went through the roof. I think the ABE was really making use of carbs and stabilizing blood sugar for me. Because when I came off, I was ravenous

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    I like yohimbine in small doses. Works great in the gym...I just gotta be careful with the dose or it makes me feel very cracked out.

    My PR on the bench is 285 x 4. This comes in as a very close second. But, I am more proud of this performance. My reps felt very controlled and solid. My butt stayed on the bench, and I really got my leg drive into the lift. I've been focusing on my leg drive for months, and am just now starting feel like it is contributing to my lift in a material way. I really got a good "full body" feel after the lift. Looking forward to squat day. I am looking for 255 x 11 reps. The weight progression on squats has finally caught up to bench press so that this month they are exactly the same. Next month squats will pull ahead (at last).

    WEIGHT CHECK: 215#. Still dropping weight. I have not implemented any of the food advice given to me, so nobody to blame but me. On the upside, I look good at 215 and I have felt strong at the gym, with the exception of Monday which was the first day after Thanksgiving laziness.

    HANGING LEG RAISE

    8/6/6

    Got that PR! The last set required 2 rests of about 5 seconds each. Don't know if that is cheating or not, but my heart was pounding but I still had gas in my legs. Time to put some time into conditioning! All my reps looked solid, at breaking parallel. The 8th rep was a bit sloppy as I leaned forward a bit, but 9 through 11 were back on my feet.

    Here is a graph showing my estimated 1RM on Squats over time. x=days; y=est 1RM. Calculated by JEFIT, which uses a slightly different algorithm than the standard. Who the hell knows why.

    Dynamite squat day for me today. No wobbly reps either: each one was smooth. I think I had another in the tank. The Leg Presses though felt much more difficult. I did more weight on Deadlift day on my leg press. Maybe the squats take more out of my quads than the deadlifts do? Deadlifts, however, feel MUCH more exhausting than the Squats...no comparison.

    I am getting there. I think the 5/3/1 plan of adding 10# per month has really worked well for me. Before 5/3/1 I was injuring myself in the squat rack about once per month. Have not hurt myself once on 5/3/1 and I am getting into weights that I never attempted before.
