  1. Good work, dude! I'm glad you're liking 5/3/1.

    As for the lower back and your rows; There's a Tony Gentilcore article that brings that up specifically. If you plan on rowing on your deadlift day, barbell rows would be a good addition seeing as your lumbar has already been worked, that way you can save your lumbar the rest of the week. I'll do barbell rows 5x3-5reps when I strip down the deadlift bar. Just more food for thought!

    Alright, yeah i usaully do 5x10 pendlay rows after deadlift, should i be doing them at a 3-5 rep range instead? I thought the supplemental rows should be done at a "higher" rep range rather than 3-5. I had a crazy pump from those tbars the other day lol

  17. heading to the gym to bench today, took yesterday off because i ended up not sleeping very well (only for about four hours) so I went to work in the morning went home and went to sleep.

    Going to hit the gym and then study for an anatomy exam thats on wednesday.

    Going to try and get that bench up!

    Also I can't wait to start another cycle. I may consider either skipping or shortening the deload period. The reason being is because i felt like I already "deloaded" when I was sick and skipped the gym for 4 days. So I may either just do an upper body 50% lift and lower body 50% lift and just deload over 2-3 days instead.

    Also ive been hitting Arms more frequently with less sets and they are growing like weeds. Also my back is freaking getting wide! I love it. Those extra rows are helping and i feel my DL getting stronger because my back can now hold that amount of weight coming up/at lock out. The front squats are giving my quads some new definition ive never had and that also a plus. i want to see how they add to my back squat.

  18. Let me update ya on my last two lift:

    Squat 5/3/1 weeks

    135x12
    185x8

    225x6
    255x3
    285x3
    255x3
    225x6

    Front squat

    95x10
    115x8
    135x8
    145x5

    GHR SS 2lbs RDL x3
    Leg extensions 125x15x3
    Leg curl 110x15x4

    Calf work x5 sets


    New cycle (no deload, i dont feel it is needed as of now , will take one next cycle)

    OHP Cycle #2
    3x5 weeks

    65x12
    75x10

    95x5
    105x5
    120x6
    105x5
    95x10

    Tbar row super setted with 20lbs DB side raises will failure
    120x10x5

    DB bench press 55x10x5

    Rear flys
    105x11
    105x0
    105x9
    75x15 (burn out)

    Bicep/tricep work

    BB curls
    pushdowns
    overhead ext
    dips
    21s
    hammers
    -my buddy showed up and asked me to lift arms withhim so i did a little more than i usually do


    So i can see where frontsquats help with backsquat form. i was backsquatting out of the rack and felt really centered and balanced, more than usualy. i can tell front squats are helping a lot, glad i finally manned up and learned how to do them correctly.

    Also i am starting to recomp soon! Time to lose some BF. So here is what im going to follow:

    Eating only 100-200 kCals over maintenance on training days
    Carbs only Pre and post workout (And pre exam, taking an exam without carbs blows!)
    On off days eat 300 under maintenance
    Cardio 3-5 times a week ( i dont mind cardio, a mix of HIIT, LIIS, and others)

    Current maintence = 2700-2900 with different TDEE calcs so i am going to use 2800 for a start.

    So on my lifting dats ill eat 2900/3000
    -protein: stays the same 200g+
    -Fats: lower fats
    -carbs: higher cars 200g+

    Off days : 2500-2600
    -protein: stay the same
    -Fat: higher than on lifting days
    -Carbs: less, 150g or less (shooting for 100G and the rest in fats/carbs to meet kCals goals)

    I will also be running Finaflex 1-alpha for 8 weeks along with this recomp to see if i can get the most out of it.

    Im excited for it, recomp starts today

  19. What's your current weight? just curious

    This is a good question. I'm between 194-196 as of now. After my Super Bowl party I gained 10 lbs ahahah I never destroyed that much food in one night.

  21. Thanks i always ask just to get an idea of calories to BW...

    I know what your saying after I hit 208lbs I had a big pizza cheat dinners 2 weeks in a row and gained 8lbs back never did get them back lol but 215ish is still good

    Jesus that's insane . I'd love to eat pizza all day as a cheat day lol

  23. Need to bump this thread. I've been so god damn busy with everything I keep forgetting to update this.

    Anyway the lifts are progressing nicely and all is well.

    I was deadlifting the other day during a huge snow storm and mid way up my ****ing belt rips! I was pissed. Glad my lower back is fine.

    So instead of doing squats today I am waiting for my new belt to come in tomorrow. So I decided to bro it out and do a pump shoulder /arm lift and 25 minutes of cardio.

    I also am about to start my recomp whenever I get the dieting down. I had an issue this past week with losing my appetite but it's back and hopefully here to stay. So now I can plan my diet accordingly.

    For now, I am off gents!

    Ps: I need a DL form check so I'm going to attempt to catch myself on video next DL day.

  24. What belt were you using?
