Looks like training will have to be pushed to Tuesday. I’m gonna go buy a new torture device for the dungeon after work tomorrow.
Weight is 195lb since stopping mk. I feel bigger though and shirts are tighter, go figure. I think I’ll bump the Ursa Major to 3ml a day until June.

Weighing in today at 195lb upon waking. I’m trying to get to a solid 205lb but it’s not easy. I’m grateful because 9 years ago today I was checking into a detox at almost 50lb lighter. My clothes we way too big for me. I was homeless and had nothing but a trash bag of clothes, facing a possible 5 year prison bid. Weightlifting wasn’t even a thought anymore. Today is completely different and I love every minute of it no matter how bad life gets it’ll never be like that.
Today was my squat day and my body is tired from my new job. It’s busy as hell there and I’m doing like 24000 steps on any given shift, probably why weight is dropping off. Weights felt heavy at first then I got super focused. I opted to do one clean rep of 380lb and call it. I trudged through my FSL sets. By my 3rd set I got this huge burst of energy and banged out 10 reps. Accessory work was all done on the leverage squat machine. This thing is awesome. Did some traditional leverage squats and the turned the opposite way I did a linebacker/hack squat. I also realized that this can and will be used for Viking Press. My quads are on fire right now as I type this.
Squats 5/3/1
5x160/200
3x240
5x300
3x340
1x380
5x300x2/10x300/5x300

Leverage squat(weight is just plates-not sure on weight unloaded)
10x90/140/180
5x270

Linebacker squat (facing opposite)
10x90x3

Thanks guys. This is the most important day of the year to me. It’s sometimes hard to believe this is my life now. I even moved back to the city, blocks away from where I did some unthinkable things haha. It’s weird how life works

Decided to hit shoulders after my bench 5/3/1. Just went all out on the push day. Weight on flat bench felt a little heavy but my volume is there so I’m not too concerned. Did a few working sets on incline then took about 60% of my max and did 3 sets of 8. Viking press on this leverage machine is awesome. After the first set my shoulders and traps felt it. It’s definitely humbling haha. I wish I knew what the unloaded weight is but at least I have an idea what my max looks like. Did some dumbbells shrugs to continue to hit my traps, something I don’t normally do.
Bench 5/3/1
5x110/140
3x165
5x205
3x235
3x260
1x285 joker
10x205x2/5x205

Incline bench
10x135
8x185
5x225
8x165x3

Leverage Viking press

Hope you guys are having a good weekend. Worked a double yesterday and heading in for another today. New job rules, money isn’t everything in life but it sure helps. I’m gonna try and pull tomorrow morning before I go out for the day with my wife. Noticed some new veins popping out of shoulders which was pretty cool. I definitely think Ursa at 4ml might be worthwhile. I’ll take some pics this week maybe.
