I figured increased volume would be a good way to add mass, let's hope I can pull it off smart enough to recover and actually grow!
I think it is going to leave me borderline addicted to training, lol. I feel like I eat, sleep and breathe it currently.
- family day - only 2 sessions, lol!
BW (plus 5) BW+40x5, then worked back down BW+30 (minus 10) BW+10x5
After church, I spent the afternoon hiking with my children enjoying the fall foliage. We had a great time and my dog enjoyed it as well! Then took my youngest to a skate park. Positively lovely afternoon.
100 (plus 10) 180x5
105x8, 3 sets - these 3 sets were one and a quarter reps (hence forth, Q reps), i.e. full rep then down 1/4 and back up, that counts as 1.
Bicep Curl superset with Dec Rev Crunch
60x12, 3 sets with BWx20, 3 sets
Lat Pulldown 50x12, 3 sets with Chest Press 50x12, 2 sets
Row 75x12, 3 sets with Chest Press 50x12, 2 sets
Weights are slightly lower than normal (for example PR's for pullups is BW+60x5 and for T-Bar is 195x5). Since I am going to try for 3 sessions per day on weekdays, I want to make sure all my reps are quality reps, I don't need to be over taxing my CNS by getting close to failure when I am going for the amount of volume I am striving for.

Bodyweight average this week: 173.5
Weight stabilized at around 173 after being at 174 for a short while post "contest." Adding in 2/3 cup oats to my diet to see if that will start to push the scale upward.
