yea.. I guess that's how the world works, just got to keep trying.

Because I'm looking at a long uphill battle I'm thinking about gaining some more weight/building size and getting the lifts up as a way to keep my mind off it. Going to stay with 5/3/1 because of it's flexibility. If I do decide to add some more weight I'm going long term 6+ months maybe, try and hit 180 or 170 at least. Shoot for 5-8 lbs per month or 1.5 - 2 lbs per week.

I am not interested in GOMAD at all. Sorry but too many GOMAD cycles is not healthy especially if you have allergies to milk in my case I get these really bad red spots all over my arms and acne. I was thinking 1/2 gallon of milk for a while to test it, I could pull of 1/2 a gallon without much allergies for a while most likely. Other than that I cook my own food now or it's a trip to the dollar menu at MC'd's

I was thinking a simple nice and controlled gain.

I prefer that as well nowadays, lean gains once you are an intermediate and higher are the way to go IMO.

11/5

Bench: 45 x 10, 45 x 10, 75 x 5, 95 x 5, 110 x 5
DB Bench: 45 x 3 x 10
Kroc Rows: 50 x 35 each arm

In and out in 30 min

Decided I do want to add some weight but I'm not going to obsess over anything major, just controlled lean gains. Not going to do milk, just work on eating a little more here and there and enjoy the training program. Just eat when I feel hungry, sleep lots if I am able to, etc, throw some random sprints here and there and a metcon randomly.

Lunges: 35 x 3 x 10

11/9

5/3/1 month 2

Press: 45 x 10, 65 x 10, 90x5, 105 x 5, 120 x 7
DBSP: 40 x 3 x 10
Chins: 10, 9 , 7

I really thought I had more in me but the whole workout did not go how I wanted it to, got a lot on the mind about the whole military stress and such. Sleep, nutrition, recovery all suck right now. Looking into the National Guard now and even thinking about putting an application into the Greenville Police department.
