3-2-12 50 Minutes
3 mile jog, 40 min
3x Ab and 3x oblique planks 30-45 sec 10 min

My hand feels great today. Just goes to show you what happens when you take care of your body. Heals quick. I took it very slow on my jog and will only be jogging 1x a week. Now we have:

A
B
C
Rest
A
Cardio - Light Abs
C
Rest

Repeat. I was functioning on this well for a LONG time. I just swapped a cardio day with a leg day.

Hey man, I'm feeling really good but I have the 'haven'tfuckingliftedforaweekitis' So I floundered on everything until my muscles jump back into the game. How are things on your end man? How is the weather?

3-15-13 1hr 20min
DB chest press 176 x5x4x1 171 x4x4 > 176
Weighted hammer chinups +62.5 x5x5x5x5 > +65
Weighted dips +60 x8x8x8 > 62.5
Tricep kickbacks 53x10 43x15 33x20 > 55.5/45.5/35.5
Bicep curls 48 x10 38 x15 28 x20 > Hold through
Chinups and decline pushups to failure

Feeling really strong even though I have the back to weightlifting blues. Been walking fasted every day or other day depending on my schedule. high impact cardio is sparse and damaging. Despite this and stuffing my face over my rest week I have gotten leaner...

Good work, I hope you get some good DOMS in your quads. Sounds like you might ?!

Good work on the ab training as well, sometimes after a hard workout it's tough to stay around to do it.

A lot of guys are hellbent for mercy on doing their abs, biceps and triceps. I have to force myself to do them at the end of my workouts which is where I put them because I just don't see them as terribly important.

Mini Forklift, what do you think about twice a week training for each muscle group?

I really wish I would learn from my mistakes, but apparently I am a gigantic fucking idiot who is obsessive compulsive about weightlifting and who over thinks everything. I thought I might have been fighting off a flare up, or may have had a cold; But no, I am horrifically over trained. Depression, sleeping 9+hours a night was not cutting it, was feeling really weak. Yep, you're a dumbass. So I took yesterday off, and I 'll take today off, and maybe tomorrow. Some personal bullet points if I ever do this shit again, which I hope I won't and have learned from my fuck ups and need to read back.

-You cannot expect to lift 5x a week doing a full body routine for 1+hrs and not totally cook your CNS; You shouldn't even be doing a 5 day split.
-You do not function on high volume and should not touch anything over 25 reps for compounds and 30 for isolations and jam pack your days with more than 1-2 movements for compounds and 2-3 for isolation+accessories.
-You really shouldn't be lifting for more than an hour and some change per session.
-More is not always better and more rest is more valuable than more lifting; you should be lifting a maximum of 15-17 times a month with 17 being your absolute top end.
-Please stop fucking around with your routine except for minor tweaks and stick with what was working back through September to January.

Yeah so, someone slap me.

try some of mike mentzers routines, there a refreshing break from usual ones and the emphasis is on recovery, even if you dont follow it to a "t" his ideas can help to make a routine yourself.......no slaps needed pal! :D

I checked out a few of his routines and the volume on those exercises/sets would fucking obliterate me. My nervous system seems to spaz out and shut me down when I train with over 25 total reps for an exercise, for 2 maybe 3 maximum exercises per session on compounds and 30 reps max on 1 or 2 exercises for isolations. It would explain why I functioned so well on 4x5 or 3x8.

I actually feel pretty good today. I don't feel drawn out and weak.
