    If you want to build solid overall strength that will transfer to other lifts you should. It will expose weak areas quickly.

    10-19 Cycle 3 Week 1 Bench

    Bench 5@45--5@115--5@155--5@180--9@205
    BBB 5x10@120
    DB Lateral Raise 2x12@20--11@20
    BB Curl 10@80--9@70--7@70

    Really good start to cycle 3. I've been cutting for the 8 days of deload and am at 184lbs. I feel leaner and strength is on point. Gonna go back up to a surplus for the work weeks. Proud to say I got my serratus back. I got a bit gassed for curls but all in all I'm very pleased with today's workout. Haven't taken condense for a week so it really had that kick today, and pumps were absolutely epic.

    True, we all want PRs but the effort is what matters. Tear it down and build it back up stronger.

    10-22 Cycle 3 Week 1 OHP

    Mil Press 5@45--5@95--5@110--8@125
    BBB 5x10@75
    BB Row 12@165--2x12@170
    Lat Pull 12@150--2x12@160

    Solid workout today, I made some slight adjustments to my grip and form for press. I'm trying to keep my elbows more forward and emulate a standing technique. With the change in form it definitely made the exercise more challenging. I'm happy to tie my PR for reps at this weight. I also definitely felt a lot more front delt activation. 1.5 Scoops of condense was great today, kept me going strong the whole workout and I was able to add some weight to rows and lat pulls. Grip felt really strong as well. I'm hoping to be able to switch out lat pulls for pull ups within the next 1-2 cycles, and then on to weighted pull ups.

    10-23 Cycle 3 Week 1 Deadlift

    DL 5@45--5@135--4@225--5@280--5@320--8@365
    BBB 5x10@215
    Weighted Dips 4x10@+60--9@+60

    Another disappointing deadlift day. I'm not making progress and my back is getting worse, I wanted to quit after the first set of BBB. I couldn't even hold form. Might have to switch my routine for a bit and try to recoup. Good pumps from the Condense today, dips went pretty good.

    Lower left lumbar area, it doesn't hurt per say, but it starts to tighten up and get really inflamed as the workout progresses. It gets bad on squat days too.

    Doesn't sound good at all. Only one side hurting huh? Obviously if it's inflamed then ice and nsaids to bring that down. Stretching is always important. Do you notice one hamstring being tighter than the other when stretching? Otherwise, I would work on unilateral strengthening for the lower back/glutes area. See if one side is weaker than the other. Just some ideas to ponder Doja.

    Yeah it's from an attempt at 475 on deadlift before I started 5/3/1 I felt something give, and it hurt for a few days, and ever since, that side always gets tight and inflamed. It's in the exact spot that I felt it every time. I thought it was getting better for awhile but it's been too long to continue this way. I need to let it heal fully. I think my poor deadlift form is aggravating it. Cause even on the days where my form looks like snap city its always the left side in that spot. Right side always feels strong and ready for more, even when I really irritate the left side.

    It's a confusing ass injury too man, like right now my back doesn't hurt it isn't inflamed I can bend and move fine. But it feels weird a little bit, like I'm aware of it all the time but no real discomfort. Then as soon as I start getting into squats or deads it's like it just gets exhausted or something and it's extremely noticeable. But it doesn't even last that long like 30 minutes max. It sucks but I think if I just take it easy on my back for a month, or maybe 2, that it can heal. I would think a serious problem that needed surgery would be causing legit amounts of pain around the clock. I mean, I'm not a doctor, but I did stay at a holiday inn express last night.

    This is a great example of adjusting your hips Doja. I recommend getting a nice sweat going first so you are loose. You should hopefully hear some good pops when doing these. The important part is to really relax when doing it.



    Let me know what goes if you try it.

    Good vid, I tried it and got some legit pops, but I don't know if it fixed my problem. Will have to see how I feel tomorrow.

    10-25 Cycle 3 Week 2 Bench

    Bench 5@45--5@135--3@170--3@190--6@215
    BBB 5x10@120
    DB Lateral Raise 3x12@20
    BB Curl 12@80--6@80--15@50

    Nice workout today, pretty sure that's a PR on the money set. Accessory work went well, the 15@50 at the end of curls felt pretty good. 1.5 Scoops of Condense had me pumped up.

    I know when my legs got stiff and lower back didn't feel right the best thing I did was crazy high rep sets with like no weight. Just basically going through the motions with the muscle filling it with blood. Moving and stretching it from every angle. Constantly giving it stimulus however very light and controlled motion.

    Possibly give that a shot. You definitely gotta take care of it quick. Otherwise your just gonna have a nagging injury that's gonna get worse and more frustrating.

    10-26 Legs

    Leg Press 8@1pps--8@2pps--8@3pps--6@4pps--6@5pps--2x4@6pps--20@3pps
    Leg Extension 8@165--8@180--6@195--6@210--4@225--4@240--5@255
    Laying Hamstring Curl 8@90--6@110--4@130--10@90
    Seated Calf Raise 20@90--20@180--3x20@270

    Trying to keep from taxing my back today, but leg press kinda made it sore today. I think I was bringing it too far down and using my back, I'll either have to fix that or just use the machines for a couple weeks. Felt like I got some decent leg work in though. It's been a while since I've done any of these exercises and I was surprised at how much more weight I can do on them. I actually used the whole stack on leg extension.

    Laying hamstring curls killed me. If I do them now its with a real low weight to stretch them out more than anything. Felt like my knees were getting strained doing them too. Maybe I'm just an idiot!

    PES Anabeta and Randoja, also Test Powder.

    The last month has been in this log. Have a few workouts before my next log starts that will be in here.

    From today:

    12-3 Cycle 4, Week 3, Bench

    Bench 5@45--5@135--5@185--3@210--6@230 PR
    BBB 3x10@120--2x10@140
    DB Lat Raise 3x12@22.5
    BB Curl 2x8@80--10@60
    Cable Flys 10@40--2x10@50
    V-bar pushdown 3x10@80

    Another big bench PR today, I worked out with one of my bros today and it was so nice. Had a spotter and everything plus his gym is actually nicer than mine, there is a deadlift weight change thing, bumper plates, big colored oly plates, they are all round too which is what I need for getting back into the deadlift. So I'm gonna switch gyms tomorrow so that I can train with a partner all the time. I'm really happy to have him around, he weighs a good 10lbs more than me and is leaner, also has about 20lbs and 2 reps over me on the big 4. It's definitely gonna push me that much more having him right ahead of me. He hit 240x 8,8,6 today. This log is about to have 2x the vids lol.

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