Late and mass post. I've been busting my ass off with school and workouts have taken a slide it. My weights gone down a bit and subsequently my strength too. I've been having a bitch of a time getting back into things from when I went camping and I'm having a hard time bringing any intensity to the gym. I've been scaling back a little but at the same time I just don't have it in me mentally some days. I'm obviously plateauing right now and I need to get back on track but I'm a bit bored with SS right now and feeling fat and heavy so that doesn't help. Just need to suck it up, eat more food and keep pushing. If I can gain 6 more kg in the next 6 months I'll be happy.

Solid. Lean back!
-Deadhang Pull-ups: 10/8/6
-Handstand work: wall @30sec x5
-Evil Wheel work

Feeling alright. Weight is up today which means the weights felt lighter. Back Squats were pretty solid and I think I've just had a bit of a epiphany when it comes to simple leaning back and thinking about that instead of pushing my knees out. If I lean back my knees follow.
Shoulder has been giving me pains this last forever and it's just been presses and starting today wall handstands, which are both pain free. Dips, push-ups and bench presses are still a no no.
I'm thinking I need to switch some things up. I'm getting bored with SS and it seems the only time I can make gains and not regress is if I'm 100% on the ball in regards to food, rest and lifting. Throw a snag into the routine, miss a meal or a day and I take a step backwards. It's been 7 months of SS, with some ups and downs so I'm thinking it's time to make a change.
Any comments from out there would be appreciated.
