I've decided I'm tired of supporting the factory farm meat industry, so today I went and bought some meat at a local farm. Never have I paid so much for so little food. It's good though, I'll have to learn how to stretch the meat which will entail learning to cook better.

I have lost 2 pounds. I've been letting myself go hungry lately because I'm scared of gaining all kinds of weight back like I did the last time I went off a diet, but I guess I need to add a bit of food.

I'm going to alternate benching and pressing each week. I think trying to add 2.5 pounds weekly to everything will be too aggressive.

Nice! I guess that back work has been paying off in more ways than expected. I'm going to start alternating chin ups and front lever work gtg throughout the day.

Fuck bros, it's happening again. I had to have a protein shake last night to kill the hunger that was keeping me awake. Appetite is way up, and I'm also up to 182 (but I think that's mostly water weight). I think the only reasonable solution here is to eat clean but comfortably, let my weight climb, and then cut every 12 weeks for 5 weeks. Starting today.

Sunday January 6th

Weighted Chin Up
52.5x5x3


I'm back to feeling like I have an easy 5 on the first set. I think 80x3 or 110x1 is a no brainer at the end of the next 11 weeks.

Shrugs
275x3x20
225x20
185x50


I have to say that the time I spend in the commercial gym using new equipment was pretty productive. I think once I finish cutting I'll re-join and focus on getting closer to a full front lever. I feel pretty certain it was the lat pulldown that got me to single leg. I could feel it working the shit out of my lats and I made good gains on it while I was there.

Barbell Row
50x3x20

I ate around 2500 calories yesterday and woke up 178. I don't usually fluctuate as high as 182 so I thought I had gained weight but it looks like I didn't, or if I did it was a small amount. Praise be.
