It was tons of fun, I wouldn't mind losing the tent, it was by far, the heaviest thing in my pack, ha, ha!

Send me the canteen, weapon, helmet and boots and I'll try it out.

--------

Leg Day - Miscellaneous

Squat - all sets 3 reps
120, 170, 220, 220, 240, 260, 280, 300

Deadlift - No Belt
326x20

This was brutal, butt on fire, had an instant headache after this set

Power Shrug
226x20, 2 sets

Leg Extension - explosive then squeezed at top
80 (plus 10) 130x5
105x13

Did the following in random order:
Hill Sprints x 6
Tire Sled Rows, Tire + 50 x 12, 5 sets
Tire Chest Press, Tire + 50 x 12, 3 sets, +25 x 12, 1 set

Later in day:
Bike Ride with my kids

-------

Weighed in a 176 this morning and my waist was 32.25. That is small for me, I have naturally wide hips. To give you an idea of my progress, my waist was 35+ on some mornings when I was around 200 pounds.

Glad you had fun man! Congrats on the waist change. That is a lot of noticeable progress.

As for the glute thing, I noticed mine were "harder" than usual after the cut. While I never store much fat there anyway, it was really noticeable on.

Was that you asking questions on the eccentric less training on T-Nation? Been watching the videos and I just saw someone named Tim McBride asking questions. Thinking about implementing eccentric less training into your routine?

Thanks, been putting in work and getting results. As you mentioned in BigBear's thread, consistent intensity will pretty much take care of things.

I already am, anytime I use my Tire Sled, that is eccentric-less, just like the prowler they use in the videos. I personally love it, the whole concept of adding more volume without the added muscle damage makes perfect sense to me. The additional volume accomplishes two things: 1) added pump brings in more nutrients to the muscle to help recovery 2) another growth stimulus via the repetitive effort method

--------------

Push Day

OH Press - strict
100 (plus 10) 140x3
145x3

Incline Press
145 (plus 10) 195x3

Bench Press - contrast
120x3
175x3
120x3
190x3
120x3
205x3
120x3
220x3
120x3
230x3
185x10

Push Circuit:
Dips, Pushups on ground, Pushups on bench (easier angle) - each until failure, Tire Sled Press - 1 round

GPP/recovery Circuit:
Backward Sled (quad) Tire +70, Forward Sled (hams) Tire +70, Row (back) Tire +70, Chest Press Tire +50 - 2 rounds

Chest Isolation circuit:
Pec Deck, Cable crossover, Wide fly, close fly, pushups on bench - to failure - 1 round

Delt Isolation circuit
Lat raise (2 types), Front raise (2 types), Band External Rotation - to failure - 1 round

OK, so I went a little overboard today.

Yea, now that I see your workouts I can see you already are implementing it. I wish I had a prowler or sled to use. The only thing I can think of using is my punching bag I haven't put up yet. I could put a rope around it and drag it in the grass. I might have to try that out.

I'm not sure if that is a good idea:
1) You may ruin your punching bag
2) You can't adjust the load

I use a tire with plywood in it, I could care less how beat up the tire gets and I can add weights to my liking to fit the exercise.

Crap, I just recalled that I forgot to stand on my 40lb plates, which adds 1.5 inches of deficit to the Cambered Bar Deads, I will have to scratch that PR.

------

Push Day

OH Press
100 (plus 10) 150x3

Incline Press
150 (plus 10) 200x3

Flat Bench Press
200 (plus 10) 240x3

Circuit to failure:
Pushups with push up handles, Dips, Pushups on bench, Pec Deck, 1 Arm Cable Crossover, Wide DB Fly, Close DB Fly, Pushups on bench

Sled Work:
Front Raise, Rear Delt, Chest Press - 2 rounds

Ab Bench
50 x failure, 3 sets

--------

I really felt like my calves were lagging in leanness, I made a targetted effort to hit them on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with an uphill tire dragging circuit. I felt like I got an almost immediate response and I plan on implementing my calve circuit several times per week to help bring them up to par.

--------

Diet Update:

Bodyweight average last week: 176.9
Bodyweight average this week: 175.0

I had 2 uncharacteristically low days, 173 both times, which affected my average. I am going to use 176 as my average instead so as not to distort my numbers.

I woke up at 173 AFTER a refeed, but a Sunday lunch at a Chinese buffet helped me get my weight back to normal at 176 this morning!

If I was on a bulk, I could have spent HOURS at this buffet, steamed salmon that tasted as good as if my wife cooked it, RAW sushi on the buffet, hibachi, etc. It was unreal, I was in heaven!
