October 10
20 minutes of hill sprints.
Brought up a 100 lb barbell to do some backyard stuff for some extra conditioning.

Circuit looked like this.
Shrugs/Clean+press/BB curls
All with hill sprints in between.

Trying to shed some weight and start lifting at competition weight (165), I'm only sitting at 171 now. But I need to increase my cardio

A mix of it. My friend told me about it, and I looked into it. I guess mine is more of a combo between Coan and Wendler's 5/3/1.

Finally hit 180 pounds today. Going to start shedding off that fat starting today. Getting my protein in and cutting out some of the carbs I don't really use/need. We'll see how well this goes. This is the first time I'll be cutting, should be fun.

Back at home for a week which means no gym.
Also leads to getting back to running regularly.

Hit a 6 km run a little after dinner, still had it in me, just barely though.

5 km run today with the worst head wind I have ever face before. I've been doing p90x ab workouts every other day as well.
Not much but it helps

Thanks carrot. We'll see what happens when I get back to the gym.

I wrote out some end of the year goals for December.
MP: 160
Bench: 245-250
Deadlift: 450-460
Squat: 345-350
Just goals I want to hit soon. I know I'll get them, just a matter of when
