    • Thanks guys


      Well my work schedule just intensified. But the good thing is that this job ends next Friday. But won't be lifting next week. It has been a long time since I took more than 2 days off from the gym so this will be a good thing. I will being hitting it Saturday and Sunday of this week. Just not weekday next week. I can't wait for this job to be over and for me to go back to my normal schedule.

            Good session today. I wanted to change it up so I hit the Hammer Incline. I also wanted to beef up the volume too. It was awesome. I still have a crazy pump hours later.

            My issue with running out of energy is over. I raised my carbs up which was my problem. I had lowered them too much. And the last 3 days if I felt like having a beer or a cookie or two or a little ice cream, I had some. I feel like that helped. But enough of that shit. Back on this shit 100%.

            Got 40 mins of cardio later.

            Good session. Today was the first time I had done Bench Press with anything over 135 in years. I tried to do it with my elbow tucked instead of out like BBers do it. Different and good. But I was fried after inclines so...

            Good session. Simple. Didn't sleep well last night.

            And Chest days are now 1 of my 2 high carb days instead of back and legs. Chest and Legs. Because my lower back has been preventing from pushing it hard on back. Same with legs but for now, I'm going to just place the other high carb day there.

            Ok session. I was working hard but the strength was just not there today. Especially on DB Press. Probably still drained from yesterday. But I have a great pump all through out the workout. I tried doing CG Bench. First time years. Went ok. I will continue to do it. Probably not OH DB Exts. Pushdowns and kickbacks felt ok but by the time I got there I was done. strength was shit. I will also continue doing triceps on chest day. I wanted to see what Tricep moves would bug my elbows too. That is why I did 1 set here. 3 there ...

            Not strong like my other TJ Homeboys today lol

            Yesterday my shoulders and elbows were killing me. Today they don't hurt. I went lighter on the poundages and slowed my rep speed down to make it harder. Only did 3 moves and got a good pump going.

            Personally, it is a shitty day. Not going into it.

            Todays workout was a bust. I could not get the mojo going. No strength. No intensity. Just sucked. I think I am still taxed from yesterdays back day. SVT, remember when you asked Joe if training back the day before chest effects your chest day? It does. That and I am stressed the fuck out because of work. That is why I haven't been on here as much lately. WORK! I am not sleeping either. This is weird too because with the exception of today, all my workouts have been going great on no sleep, lots of work and lots of stress. I feel sick, tired, pale, no appetitie and I am sweating way more than normal today.

            Anyway. I am not going to open up about it and go into detail.

            I have 30 minutes of Cardio coming my way later today.

            230 lbs is a new low for me. Last month at this time, I was 240. I am stronger now and am in much better condition.

            Good session today. I had lots of energy.

            And over the last 3-4 days I have had almost no motivation to stick to my diet or cardio. I have though. I just really really didn't want to. And last night when I was shaving, the dieting/cardio/and heavy training became obvious. More veins, side and top abs are coming in my shoulders look bigger, and my waist is smaller! And other stuff. It gave me back the motivation and drive I needed.

                  My back hurt has been hurting since I started working this job. So I didn't move anything impressive. I just did pump work.

                  • What type of work do you do?

                    • Soil Remediation. I can't go into to much detail about it. But what I am doing now is a bunch of very physical labor stuff to get ready for my main job.

                      I have a fucked up lower back. So it really effects my training.

                            My diet has been off since I started this these new hours. My physical activity is off the charts some day and then other days, I am stuck on a forklift all day. So, I try to have enough carbs to fuel me during the day and then when I get home from my 11 hour shift, I eat proteins and fats and veggies. So it is kind of hit and miss. Can't wait till friday.

                            I didn't have to work today. Nice! And I don't have to work until 11 AM tomorrow.

                            Cardio today for sure.

                            My shoulders were burning when this was done.

                            Man. I really need to get used to training this early.

                            My lower back is thrashed from work. I couldn't do any shrugs and shit.

                            I wasn't moving impressive numbers as I was half asleep, but I had a crazy pump.

                            Back was killing today. I knew this was going to happen so I switced legs and shoulders around. But I am sure that I won't be able to effectively train legs manana so it will probably turn into an arm day.

                            Very Low volume today. But I had a huge and great pump all over. Decent session.

                            AND TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY BACK FOR MY DAD SINCE THE ATTACK.

                            Good shoulder and bicep day. I am fucking drained. I only got 5 hours of sleep. Gut rot woke me and I couldn't go back to sleep afterwards.

                            In and out. Didn't have a lot of time today.

                            Decent session. I took it easy on shoulder presses and tried a different movement to see how the elbows took it. I had a crazy pump the whole time. I enjoyed doing more volume than usual. Still giving my triceps a break from direct work so I will be out of the gym manana and Sunday. Back day on Monday. Wednesday I was looking forward to a high carb day (Thursday), and now I hate high carb days. No much food.

                            40 mins of cardio later today

                            Good session today. I did biceps with shoulders because the skull crushers I did last week aggravated the tendonitis in my elbows. So I am not training them directly this week. They got plent of work on chest day, like always. So tomorrow and Sunday will just be cardio days/ low carb days.

                            40 mins of cardio later today.
