Pull week 4

10 minute bike warmup, 3.29 miles DL: 5x195, 5x245, 5x285, 5x315, 5x335
Chins to 25: 6x5x5x5x5
Db Row: 6x90, 6x95, 6x100
Incline curls: 10x35, 6x40, 6x40

Hit 100 balls at the batting cages.


Notes: Felt really god this week. Chins are getting better. Since I did 5 across, I'm going to lower the resistance a little bit, and instead of 2 wraps, i'll do one and work it up. I also changed my db row a little bit. Instead of being completely bent over, I saw a video online where the guy supported himself on the back on an incline bench, so you're not just supporting yourself with your lower back. Still felt strong and I can't wait to move up to 105lb db's since I have NEVER gone that heavy.

Week 5 push

Protein: 358.1 grams
Calories after lifting: 2512

Warmup: 10 minutes on recumbent bike, 3.04 miles.

Db BP: 10x55, 6x65, 3x75, 1x85 6x100, 4x105, 3x105
OHP: 10xbar weight, 4x120, 5x120, 5x120
Dips: 6x6x5
Triceps PD: 10x90, 8x95, 6x95

Notes: decided that I really need to start upping my intake of protein to get bigger. Still trying to stay at a good number calorie wise and still get in enough protein. Going to try and hit 1gram per lb of body weight and note protein and calories per lift day. I'll hopefully still cut fat, but gain muscle. Once I can do 8 per set, I think I'm going to add weight either via a belt or maybe add the length of chain they have there. Maybe I'll shoot for dips to 25, and see where I am. THen add the chains and work back up to 25. I really like how I feel after doing triceps. My arms felt particularly large today. i think a lot had to do with protein. I'm also going to work in overhead triceps press with the rope and pulley as an alternate to pushdowns.

Week 5 Legs

Protein:268 grams
Calories(total): 2267

10 minute bike warmup: 3.01 miles

Squat: 10xbar weight, 6x135, 3x185, 1x225, 6x260, 4x265(pr), 4x265(pr)
Squats @ 50%: 5x10@135lbs

Notes: chins are getting stronger. Figured I would do them whenever I can to add in volume. First time I ever squatted 4x265. I've gone higher with ORM, but never reps. Highest I had gotten to date was 4x260 and that was last year this time. After a year of docking around, I'm back.

Trying to incorporate the Boring But Big template into my lifting, i.e., doing my main lift(max to style) and then do a volume set of 5x10 followed by auxiliary movement, 5x5.
