They were the small dates not the large medjool dates, so it equates to two servings or 240 cals.

What's the plan for it?

It's also nice to see more xVx dudes on this board.

Looks solid to me.

Those Overhead tri presses always tear me up (in a good way).

Went back and did some abs, calf raises, and some vertical and broad jump training. I had never taken b12 on its own before today, and just relied on what little amount was found in my multivitamin which i hardly remember to take and whatever fortified foods i have eaten, which is not often at all these days. I guess it made a difference judging by my calf raise numbers.

Calf Raises:
225x20, 315x20, 405x20, 495x20, 585x18, 675x15, 765x10, 810x8

Nutrition for the day:

Calories: 2982
Fats: 68.7g
Saturated Fats: 7.5g
Carbs: 430g
Fiber: 87g
Sugars: 260g
Protein: 183g

Food consisted of: Vega Sport, 1/3 cup of Almonds, Almond Milk, Blueberries, Raw Protein, Vegan Cole Slaw using Veganaise, 12 Dates, 8 Figs, Vegan Scallops, Sweet Potato, 1 serving of Smart Balance Light, 1 serving of Peanut Butter, 8 servings of Green Beans, and 5 servings of Dried Apples

Just got off my 24 hour shift with very little sleep, like 3 hours of broken sleep total. Fasted for about 15.5 hours total. Felt pretty good at the gym today. I feel like i am progressing fairly quickly, either that or i am pushing myself more then i have been lately and realizing my current potential. Either way i love this program.

Romanian BB Deadlift: (raw, no straps, gloves, chalk, belts, etc)
45x15, 135x12, 225x6, 275x4, 275x5, 225x6 drop 135x10

Incline DB Bench Press:
35sx15, 55sx7, 70sx5, 70sx6, 70sx5 (spotter helped on last)

DB Bent Over Rows: (feet shoulder width, db in both hands, one arm at a time)
30sx6, 50sx10, 60sx10, 60sx10, 65sx8

DB Sumo DL to Clean to OH Press: (one dumbell, one arm at a time)
35x6, 50x5, 60x5, 60x4, 60x4 (each side)

Incline DB Fly's: (new favorite excercise)
25sx10, 40sx7, 50sx6, 50sx5, 55sx5 (spotter helped on last rep)

Machine Leg Press: (just because i hadnt done it in a while)
225x15, 405x10, 585x8, 765x5, 855x4 (probably wasnt a good idea to do these because my legs felt wasted still, especially after all the stuff earlier, also had a little bit of knee pain after, may stay away from this thing for a while)

Felt pretty awesome today besides that. Very happy with the DB Fly numbers. Trying to increase the weight on every excercise every workout.

Your numbers definitely reflect your attitude and your progress: you're killing day-in and day-out regardless of outside factors. I have a ton of respect for you, mate.

Took the day off from working out yesterday. I need to watch my calories more on days off. Ate 2900 kcal and then got like 4 hours of broken sleep on shift and went to the gym when i got off (fasted 15.5 hours).

Dead Lifts: (you know completely raw, blah blah blah)
135x12, 225x8, 315x3, 335x1, 285x5 (couldnt get this dumb lotion off my hands, so had a hard time gripping the heavy ones)

DB Seated Shoulder Press:
30x15, 45x7, 50x6, 55x5, 60x5 (spotter rushed in on two, they were still going up, just slowly)

Decline Plate Pulovers:
5 sets of 45 lb plate x 10 (first time doing decline, feel it way more than flat or incline)

Wide Grip Pulldowns: (no herky jerky kipping shit, straight back, these were hard today because i had to use a really fat pulldown bar because the one i like was being hogged)
80x12, 120x6, 120x6, 140x4, 120x6, 100x8 drop 80x8 drop 60x10 drop 50x15

Chin Up Grip Pulldowns: (nice and slow)
105x10, 140x7, 170x5, 170x5, 190x3, 140x8 drop 110x6 drop 90x6 drop 70x6 drop 50x10

Did some broad jump and vertical jump training after, along with weighted box jumps (45 lb plate), and 15 minutes of HIIT sprint intervals, also 10 min run for warmup today.

Increasing across the board.
