Arian...wish u guys were there too..thankfully I am very internally motivated! I am also super relaxed most of the time...rest assured that inside I was freaking out at my performance!

Mike: is he a short guy with glasses? There was someone there helpinmg everyone out. Unfortunately, I. Did not meet him. I got there super early and made friends with somw other guys who kind of guided me thru the day.

I am ROCKED today, my body has never felt like this...I had to jog the dog today, really helped loosen me up.

Workout should have been done tomorrow...but I was hit with a suprise "fun run" tomorrow for the army instead...o well

Squat:
293x3x3
-easy

255x20
-difficult, breathing like a locomotive, wanted to quit.

also threw in some chins/pullups for general purpose
(2 setsx max reps)
Chins:bwx15
Pullups: bwx10

monday will be bench

Still working out the kinks for my new cycle slated to begin Monday April 4. Toying with the idea of either doing 3x a week cardio +pushups pull ups, sprint style or a standard 2x week cardio only thing. (Army, must stay in "decent" running shape). If I go w/ the later, Monday will be a HITT type day with sprints, prowler, tire pulls etc. since I am squatting that day, figure it could help out; Thursday morning will be a slow jog (off day). Thoughts?

Bench:
225x3x5
205x11

Pushpress: few light sets to get the technique down for next cycle

-my next cycle will have 2 huge focuses as far as bench is concerned...
1. Strengh in the shoulders
2. Nail the bench technique

My shoulders were annihilated the first two weeks of this last program because I competition paused every single rep when benching. Might be something to consider if you are trying to dial in form and increase shoulder activation and such.

First day back on the wagon..back to the grind!!

Volume, week 1, day 1

Squats: 385x1 @ 9-9.5 RPE
310x6x6

Chins for assistance

-Was by no means an "easy" workout, but I did manage all sets and reps "without fail"
-would have been easy to knock a few sets off and blame it on the near max...quitters never win..time to get strong!
-Assistance work will not be logged during this cycle, except maybe a mention of the exercise performed...except for push press and front squat, I will log those.

Maxxes used:
Squat: 415
Bench: 275
Deadlift: 500

Dup volume week 1, day 3

Squat:
330x8x4

Deadlift:
405x3x1

Front squat:
245x1

Very good workout, squats felt awesome...great, tight form throughout.
I normaally workout first thing in the morning, and slam a pro shake before...today that plan backfired, as I worked out after work...the shake pror only spiked my insulin, then made me crash...had to grab my emergency gatorade to sip throughout to maintain blood sugar levels
