Had a pretty terrible workout today. I felt gross and as weak as a schoolgirl.

Standing BB OH Press with Strict Form:
45x12, 95x12, 120x7, 120x6, 95x10

Seated DB Shoulder Press:
30sx12, 45sx12, 52.5sx6, 45sx12

Front Plate Raise:
25x12, 45x8, 25x15

Agitated something in the right side of my back during front plate raises so I called it a night. It was such a terrible workout I contemplated not posting it.

2.5 mile run with some hills in 20 minutes flat out in the hot humid night.

I was dripping buckets after this one. I was really dizzy when I got done so I was def dehydrated all day today.

That was a new PR for BB deadlift for me. My last was 365 back when I was around 225-230 pounds. I am sitting right around 200 right now. I am happy with that!

Still here. Haven't been as consistent over the last few months and eating has not been 100%, but I have still managed to get stronger. On the downside I have put back on about 3-5 pounds, and it is noticeable, atleast to me. In other news, I have recently gotten engaged, so that could be where some of the complacency has come from!

Quick little chest workout while at work yesterday:

Flat BB Bench Press: 135x12, 135x20,

Incline BB Bench Press: 135x12, 135x15, 135x12

I can feel this one today. High reps = high burn.

2 days in a row! Back on track!

Yesterday:

BB Incline Bench Press:
45x6, 140x11, 140x13, 140x10, 140x9

Felt pretty weak today. I changed up this workout and did it as a circuit with about 1-2 minutes of rest between each excercise.

Neutral Grip Pullups:
5, 5, 6 x bw

Did some of these already at the house the day before and before the gym.

Close Grip Chin Ups:

5, 6

Same as above.

BB Squats:
45x12, 135x12, 190x12, 230x12, 230x12, 140x10 (ass to ground)

One Arm Chin Ups:
1, 1.5, 1.5, 1




Today:

Jump rope sprints for 4 minutes or so to warm up.

BB Deadlift:
140x5, 190x5, 230x5, 280x1, 330x1, 350x1, 280x5, 230x8, 190x12, 140x25

Not too bad. Could feel the soreness in my legs during the starting push from the squats the day before.

Hit the gym just before they closed tonight.

All I got to do before closing:

Jump Rope warmups

Incline BB Bench Press:
45x6, 140x6, 160x4, 180x4, 190x3

With 2 second pauses on chest:

BB Deadlifts:
135x6, 185x6. 240x5, 290x3, 340x1, 290x5, 240x5, 190x5

Pretty light today.

Neutral Grip Pull-ups:

Arms were so wasted already from deadlifts, and all of my callouses were ripped off today during deadlifts.
