8-24-13 hr 5 min
EZ Deads
Warmup 25/50/75% 4 RM
206 x 4 > 211
186 x 7 > 191
166 x 10 > 171

Chinups
98 x 4 > 100.5
72.5 x 7 > 75

Took some vid'yas for your viewing pleasure (And to spot my form on deads)

Bottom set 161lbx10 deads. (I'm locking out too hard, I think it's the light weight I am using, not sure if it's an issue or will correct itself on heavier weights?)

EZ Rows 151x7, top set.

+72.5x7 Chinups, middle set.

In case you want to comment on the form of rows and chins. Strict form is for situations where you can legit hurt yourself, like on deads, squats, chest press, etc. A little wiggle to get the last 1/4 ROM on chins on your last set or a little bounce on rows as long as your back is tight is no big deal and I have NEVER injured myself on those movements, or even felt like I was at risk.

But if my deadlift form sucks, let me know. I think it's A-OK, my back was super tight and unarched and felt really smooth.

I fucking LOVE my new equipment. <3

Today I am not running because I will be moving to the new house. But I am sitting here drinking my coffee and I am thinking about some stuff.

I think the most important thing that you can gain from exercise is knowing your body. I know that if I have slept just a bit off and it is not a weightlifting day, wherein weightlifting is my primary focus, I usually skip cardio. I also know how my body reacts to certain dietary protocols and calorie levels and I can use this effectively to switch myself from bulking to cutting with no excessive weight fluctuations.

For instance; because of my specific biological situation I know that I can get ripped on 2,800 kcal doing IF and calorie cycling between 2,700kcal off days and 3,000 kcal on days. At this point my gains slow down a bit and I am more at risk for over training which tells me this is the lower end of my dietary threshold.

At an average of 3,000 kcal, 2,700 on off days and 3,400 on lift days over training is not touched even after 6 weeks of intense 3x week full body routines but I maintain a higher body fat telling me that 3,000 is the higher end of my dietary threshold.

Knowing that 13-15 days of training a month can allow me to squeeze every weightlifting session out of a 6-8 week training period which can add up over time.

Just some thoughts. (:

I haven't quit lifting. And I am not dead. Mom and I have been backed into a corner and are living off my income in a 200 sq foot space. I refuse to fail her or myself so I am still hammering my body and growing myself. I refuse to relent and give in to weakness and despair. You'll have to fucking kill me to get me to quit.

My new 'gym' is less than 50sq feet. More than enough with a bit of ingenuity to lift. I'm on a rest week meow but my 1 year anniversary of taking lifting seriously is coming up next week. I have not missed more than 3-6 days in this entire year.
