Driving to Boston Friday, arriving Saturday. I have taken a week off from training, because I am incredibly busy and also work on the ditch of my arm for my sleeve three days in a row. I couldn't sleep the third night and can't bend my arm very much. I will be back into it this Monday and will start my personal training schooling a week later.

I plan on joining the Boston Vegan Association to meet some cool people and hopefully get a network of vegan clientele lined up, so I can train and design meal plans for vegans at least some of the time.

I am so pumped! :boxer:

Hope you're having a great drive. LOVED finally meeting you earlier this year....after all the years of being in touch.

So cool that you'll be in Mass since I travel there often and my best friend from childhood lives in Boston which makes that my favorite time of year, those times I visit.

All the best!

Safe and happy travels!

I started my first dose of high volume training about two weeks ago. I've never done a really proper hypertrophy program, but the instructors in my PT cert program helped me design a program: lots of volume, low rest periods. every month or so, I will switch to a strength program to "fill" my muscles with strength and give them a different stimulus.

I am eating some heavier calorie loads, something I always back away from when I try to bulk, greatly hurting my efforts. I need to get over the fear of gaining back too much fat, which my instructors are a great help with.

I think I am finally going to realize some of my potential.

I also share this exact same fear. If you ever get a free chance I'd welcome some banter re:this.

Sure, I'd be up to discussing it.

I am closing in on my old RDL and squat PRs. It shouldn't be too much longer until I surpass them. I'd give it about six months. My regular deadlifts are coming along nicely now that I had a trainer show me the form. I might nail 500lbs on deadlifts in a year or year and six months. My upper body lifts are finally inching along as well. Going to school to be a personal trainer is definitely helping.

I never put my sets and reps on here. I will try to get more regular about this, at least for my strength lifts. Today was RDLs and bent over barbell rows with long rest periods, with some stuff added in to fill gaps, like closegrip bench, done with short rest periods.

RDLs: 5x3@405, 1x2@405
Bent over rows: 4x3@135, 2x4@135

The reps on the rows were weird because I often end up leaving one in the tank for bent over rows, because it is so easy to let my form go to crap. I need to work on that.

Thanks, Joel.

On Friday I did some seated barbell military: 5x5@105
This lift is finally moving up, which along with bench, is my most troublesome lift. I filled in some calf presses, with some upright and high rows.

Yesterday was deadlifts and chins.
Deads: 6x3@345
Chins: 6x1@body weight + 50lbs on a belt
I did some body weight chins after to fill in a little more volume, then threw in some ab work.
