    • Something is wrong. I am burning out so fast at the gym. I stop sweating and get cottonmouth and am extremely weak. I am so tired too.

      I ate steak, rice and broccoli 2 hours before I trained (5:30pm), so don't know whats up with that shit. But I am fucking tired of this bull shit.

        Think about taking a week off from the gym.

                      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.


                      Got 40 mins of cardio later.

                      Good Day today. I was only able to eat 1 meal before I trained so I am suprised it was as good a session as it was.

                      My back is so sore. Holy shit. Awesome.

                      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.

                      Good session. Very Pleased. Last night, I had the wife grind her knuckles into my rear delt area to break up a knot I had. It is so sore today but feels so much more loose. Tonight I'll have her to the same to the left shoulder.

                        • You are pretty strong on your incline bench man, good stuff. Is the weight low on flat bench just because you're stuffed from the previous sets?

                          • Yeah. By the time I get to flat, I am big time weak.

                              • Yeah, I agree. I wouldn't start with Flat Bench press anyway. Not worth risking hurting my shoulder AGAIN. I would and do sometimes start with flat DB press, though.
