Fell off the wagon for a while (not the lifting wagon, just the posting wagon) and it has been a solid two months since I've last kept a journal but I've gotta get back in the habit so I can track progress better :).

That being said I'll put up my workout stats from yesterday.

Mood before workout: tired but good, working 56 hours a week and taking 15 credits kills energy levels but I just found out I got over 100% on my anatomy lab final!

(for the next few workouts I'm gonna experiment with tempo so I'll list that if I paid attention to it during the exercises, I don't know what the particular conventions are for listing times but I'll list them in order of eccentric motion, bottom of lift (bottom of squat, top of upright row, etc), and concentric motion)

Squats at 6 3 4
bar warm up
135 x 3
185 x 3
205 x 3

Snatch grip dead deads (tried 505 but found that deads aren't really made for doing slowly so I abandoned this effort after a set)
135 x 3
275 x 3
295 x 3

Multi directional lunges ( \ | | / pattern)
110 x 4
Super set
Straight Legged Dead with snatch grip
135 x 10

*Essentially stopped working out at this point, I've had some low back pain for about 6 months and recently it has been killing on leg day, gonna track down a chiropractor sometime soon.*

Body weight calves (one legs, two legs, two leg dorsiflexion) slow tempo (didn't really keep track)
15,15,15,10
15,15,15,10

bent legged ball humps (decent soleus work if you get it right)
with small physioball
12
12

Mood before workout: full and tired, probably shouldn't have eaten so much and I probably should have taken today off.

Squats
Warm bar x 10
175 x 15
185 x 15

Walking deads (put hooks on lower postion and place bar on hooks. Load bar, pick it up walk to back of squat rack and do an RDL, walk it back forward to hooks and put it back down...repeat)
135 x 15
135 x 15
(these were amazing for the low back, combo rack pull plus RDL made for ~ 30 reps per set, I'll probably do these a lot more)

Ham curls super with rotary hip abductors
HC: 10 x 70 (went light on curls today)
AB: 10 x 9 (do these mostly because buddy is trying to rehab his IT band syndrome)
HC: 10 x 90
AB: 10 x 7

alternating DB Incline seated curls (for the girls ya know :-D)
30 x 10 at angle '4'
35 x 10 at angle '3' (lower)

Rerversed california skull crusher combo (kinda, on a decline bench on it's lowest angle setting get a barbell and do the first part of a pull over then pull bar to forehead and do the extension, then lower to chest)
60 x 10
70 x 10

1 armed band preacher curls
I don't even know, these were pretty intense based on resistance given by partner

2 armed band tricep extensions
didn't like these quite as much, partner couldn't create enough tension so it was rather weak)

skipped core work and cardio today cuz I'm a fatty :-D

Mood after workout: good, glad I worked out, I really liked the walking dead thing I did, noticed I kinda do funny things when I go really low with weight on squats (not quite hot to describe it other than right hip overcompensates so I kinda bow laterally...maybe the cause for my low back pain?) also hernia type pain is returning when I push it on squats again...not sure how to remedy this...

Weight after workout: 181.5 lbs

Body image after workout: fair, cuz my stomach is pretty full I felt chubby but I felt hella good about my body last night so I know it is just the food :-D. Gonna impliment a 10 point scale here so I can start tracking it in excel. 6 for today I guess :-D.
