Fucking congrats, mate!

Keep at it and you're going to hit your BF goal sooner than you think most likely.

So i weighed myself this morning as i posted before and i was at 204.2. I took my body fat percentage when i got to the gym and i am already down to 14.3%. This made me so incredibly happy and motivated. Oh yah fasted 17 hours today.

Couldnt run to the gym today because it was monsooning outside.

6 min warm up run

Stretch

Bi/tri workout (warm up was hammer curls 30 lbs each x 32 reps)

1250 reps of jump rope supersetted with sets of iso bi/tri burnout holds

I feel better and more motivated than ever.

Hatebreed-Perseverance probably helped with that as well.

Officially started my consultation with Derek Treesize today. He will be helping me reach my goals. He changed up my workout for me today. Still have the basic infrastructure as we had before but upped the volume/reps/intensity. I am going to have to incorporate a lot more beans/legumes and greens into my daily nutrition. Fasted around 16 hours today.

I REALLY pushed myself at the gym today and felt amazing doing so. I pushed through a lot of doubts in my head about how much weight I can move and how far I can push myself.

BB Squats:
135x12, 225x12, 265x12, 315x12

BB Bent Over Row: (inverted grip, feet together, elbows at sides)
95x12, 115x12, 135x12 (hard), 145x10 (nearly killed me, last two were forced reps)

DB Flat Bench Press:
35sx12, 50sx12, 55sx12, 60sx9, 60sx12 (went back and did one more near the end of my workout because I felt like I didnt give that last set my all)

DB Shrugs:
50sx12, 60sx12, 80sx12, 80sx12

Incline Dumbell Fly's:
20sx12, 30sx12, 40sx12, 50sx12 (holy crap, last two I had a little assistance from my spotter)

I have been adding in dumbell flys to the days I do incline and flat press in hoping I can increase my chest strength because I am not happy with it right now.

1350 jump ropes.

Also ran to and from the gym.

I set some goals with Derek during out meeting today:

- 500 lb Squat (good form)
- 450-500 lb DL (raw with no assistance)
- 315 lb Flat BB Bench (will probably be the hardest for me)
- Weighted Pull Ups (I can barely do any right now at BW, have always had a hard time with them)
- 8% BF at 190-195 lbs(maintenance, with ability to cut down as needed if I ever want to do any sort of comps)
- Be a role model and blow peoples minds at the gym and hopefully change their way of thinking about a vegan diet.

My gym is closed on sundays so I had to workout in my apartment complex "gym". They only have two sets of dumbells, 20's and 25's, so I just did some light weight high volume hammer curls, concentration curls, skull crushers, oh tri diamond press, and a few bench dips followed by a light 30 min ride on my road bike. Very casual pace.

Sort of fell off the wagon yesterday as far as my "diet" goes. I ate a whole bag of granola for breakfast. I only ended up overeating my total calories by 400 or so, but it wasnt ideal. I hate being a stressful eater. Had a terrible 36 hour shift. I am paying for it so far today.

One day falling off the wagon isn't going to hurt your progress at all - just throw it into the tank, get some good sleep when you can, and keep at it. You've accomplished a lot the past few weeks, mate, keep it in perspective.

Don't stress about the diet, one day won't ruin many days of good work.

Nice work with those deadlifts, 225 x 12 is pretty chunky.

Had a pretty damn good workout today (bi, tri, circuit, and jump rope).

Warm up

Stretch

Bi/Tri

Circuits of jump squats (135 lb barbell on back, bicep curl, and tri extenstion) x 3 sets

Circuit of bench jumps with 45 lb plate held against chest, farmers carries around whole gym with 2 45 lb plates, and jump rope.

1600 jump ropes

Nutrition was eh today due to an unexpected 12 hour shift and no time to grocery shop beforehand.
