Notes: Good energy levels and contractions. I think it's due to the excess of calories from last night! I don't feel like having a deload, so I'm going to try something different. I'm going to try a one day on/ one day off split for a week and see how I feel. If I feel recovered before next week, I’ll continue with my regular schedule/ routine…..as long as the weights are continuing to increase and I feel physically and mentally good.

Notes: Strong workout tonight. Went into the gym 100% focused and ready to do work. I was determined to beat my last week's workout, as I did. Great pumps all around, especially in my chest. I really focused on the stretch in the down position on all chest exercises, which really got those contractions going. I didn't take anything to failure, just 1-2 reps before failure. I usually take 3-4 exercises to failure on hypertrophy days, so I'm hoping my recovery time will shorten this time around.

Notes: Today was a much needed day off, I must say. My work schedule lately has been more combined with only getting about 6-6.5 hrs. sleep/ night….it’s taking a toll on me. I’m hoping to finish this week out strong and get some R & R this weekend. I’m ready to hit up lower and arms- hypertrophy tomorrow though!

Notes: Good energy and focus....good workout all around. The rest day yesterday really helped out I think. I was itching to get back into the gym tonight. Ever since I my last show May, I just focused on hitting each body part twice/ week and not really following a set schedule just because my pre contest was so structured, I didn't want to get burned out. Plus, I find it more enjoyable by not following a specific training program from time to time. I'm thinking it's time to get back to following a program, in which I'll begin week 1 of PHAT coming up here within the next few days. Tomorrow will be a rest day.....hopefully my rest is catching up!

I snapped some quick photos while I was in the locker room tonight......and I'm pretty happy with these. I'll take some measurements and more pics this weekend to see how I'm progressing this past month.

Notes: Quads are feeling it today! I'm glad it's the weekend, a time to catch up on my sleep and get some good workouts in! Not to mention I'm beginning week 1 of PHAT, so I'm excited to see where I'm at as far as my lifts go. Weight is back to normal from last weekend, so I'll more than likely increase the carbs this weekend.

Weight: 153.5- 154.0

Notes: Energy and focus levels just weren’t all there today for some reason. Once I got going, my focus got a little better, maybe I should have taken today off as well..Quads and arms are still pretty sore. Despite only going 55% on core lifts, I was still pretty tired post workout, and I felt like I got a really good workout in. No exercises were taken to failure. I need to pay more close attention to this, especially during hypertrophy days. I think this will be the cure to me being so tired during the week and in between workouts as I don't think I'm recovering properly.
