Thanks Jim. The lack of sleep is definitely holding a lot of my gains back, but I'm leaning out which is nice.

I pulled 455 for a strong double last night. Back in today for some bench work.

Strong pulling. Lack of sleep definately doesn't help, but if it's a one off or something that's not happening on a regular basis you can usually push through it.

Hope you are having a good week, smash the benching mate MF.

Thanks Mf. Smashed out 225 for what could have been an assisted triple but I held back on a third rep.
Hit 315 for a solid triple squatting last night and was told my "hips coming up with my butt" is improper form and I should learn to squat properly before I have a lower lumbar injury from a PT. It's funny, I hate this dude ahaha.

Heading in for some arms and core work tonight to top off the week.

LOL, ask that dude how much he can squat to past parallel, then thank him for wasting your time.

<Insert joke about doing side lunges with pink dumbbells on a Bosu ball here.>

I wish I did man. I only have a couple weeks left at this gym so I'm trying to not get kicked out haha. There's a national powerlifter that trains there though and she said there was a bet going on for when she punched him in the face. She was nice enough to fix my bench form for me haha

I don't know what it is with 'p.ts' and squat form but they seem to always have something to say! I'm so glad I train at home man otherwise there would be a bunch of personal trainers wondering around the isle of wight with black eyes baha

He's told me twice that I am going to have a bad lower body injury. It could be the fact that he works with a guy who always wears a belt, even doing cardio or that he literally tried to get me to squat fully on my toes for form. Guy is a goof.

Worked up to a 225 for a double yesterday on bench. I was really hoping for a triple, but not last night.
Really looking forward to getting some solid sleep in another month and not working outside 6 days a week.

I think I'll be trying a new routine next week. Throwing some of the things that have worked for me into something that combines methods I've looked into. Should be cool.

I've been doing 10 minutes of rowing at the end of each workout for conditioning. BW sitting at a leaner 180

Switched my training up again. Going heavy three out of four weeks was draining and I saw some spots in my form start to fall away.

Back on the cube method and very happy with the decision. Did my first day yesterday.

Highlights were: 1" deficit deads 345x8
4" block pulls: 415x3, 405x3
50 back raises with a 30 LB chain
Oly squats 225x3x8
Ham curls with a butt machine. Maxed out the butt machine because I can twerk.
Supersetted those for four sets working up to a max at 10 reps.

Feeling really good. Still sitting at 180.

Man am I terrible at logging things in the summer.

I hit some bench for reps today. Ended up knocking 175 for 8 solidly with no assistance from a spotter. Did some military press, band pressdowns, close bench, pec deck and some incline DB as assistance.
