Still losing reps and actually brought the weights down on first two exercises to stay within the rep range...I'll be deloading to 80-85% of my top weights starting Monday.

BP: 92.2 x 8 x 3
Rows: 92.2 x 8 x 3
OHP: 52.4 x 12
Chins: 8, 7

Still working back up to where I was at a week and a half ago.
Stomach has been bad again - reflux and inflammation.
Not eating so much and not feeling a lot of energy to work out.
I want so badly to figure out my health issues and get well while also continuing to workout. I gotta stay positive and keep doing what I can.

What do you think is the cause of your health issues (sorry if Ive missed when you previously wrote about it)?
Have you seen a doctor about them?

Feeling a little better - definitely more energy for this workout.

Hey Dylan! Thanks for checking in. I wish I knew the cause(s) of all my digestive/health problems but after seeing many doctors, getting many tests, and working with naturopaths and others, I am just left with working to better each aspect of my lifestyle. Food makes the biggest difference but it gets so frustrating. I had my best success with 80/10/10 but never quite felt 100% like I wanted to. I am doing an elimination diet at the moment and also working on other lifestyle factors to see if I can do better this year.

being vegan and all that are you sure you're getting enough protein....
haha, that never gets old for me :D

if you haven't heard/know about them i always recommend cell salts for people with health troubles. google that shit, but here's a book i find hyper useful

Squats: 111 x 8 x 3
SLDL: 148.6 x 3
Leg Ext: 101.6 x 12 x 2
Calves: 111 x 15, 13
Situps: BW x 20, 15

Same squat numbers as last workout but I'm still inconsistent with the timing due to the heavy weight and breathing...not sure if I should increase weight yet...last few reps of each set get slow but not grinding.

1/29/13

BP: 97.2 x 8 x 3
Rows: 97.2 x 5, 92.2 x 8, 7
OHP: 57.4 x 12, 9
Chins: 7, 6
Curls: 43.6

early morning workout. feeling fatigued early in the workout - likely went to failure on BP...close to failure on everything else. i'm pretty much where i was at a few weeks ago before i deloaded so i feel like i'm getting stuck in the same place again. i haven't been eating that well/consistent and am still struggling with digestive issues so that's most likely the issue.
