150lbs as of sunday morning, thats really more from eating normal then any caloric excess.

Some observations about food intake:

- I haven't been able to eat much in the mornings, I may feel hungry but it's impossible to eat more than 3 eggs and a few slices of bacon, maybe a cup of milk.
- My real appetite does not hit until after 12 noon, thats when I can really pack in calories.
- homemade shakes that are caloric bombs will prob be needed this semester, it's going to be a busy one.

That's it for now.

I don't tend to eat a lot in the mornings either. I'll usually go get chinese or Quizno's at lunch to make up for the calories. Then eat a ton at night after my workouts. 2-3 times/day ~1000-1500 cals/feeding.

No reason to force feed when it's not happening.

Yea I agree

I'll say one thing, once I get my strength back up to par I want to get back on 5/3/1 I really miss it.

I'm replacing the power clean with pull-ups, I just don't feel like doing the power clean right now and I really want to put focus on building pull-up numbers and upper body strength. It feels better this way.

I've been working a few sets of power cleans after DL's each week. Rip mentioned it in PP. I prefer pull ups/chin ups to help counteract the bench press... and sitting at a desk all day. Anything with more scapular retraction. Rows will come back when I reach intermediate programming again primarily for that purpose.

That sounds like a good idea, I'll give that a try.

Yeah. I haven't even been logging them. I've been doing them between ab work. Do a set of TGU sit ups (or HLR's or something else), rest a little. Hit a double on the power clean real light. I think it helps get more volume off the deck and not sacrifice too much snap.

Going to drop the Good Mornings to 1x a week or drop em altogether for a while, back is feeling pretty strong now. However, deadlift feels real heavy and it's felt consistently the same since day 1. Makes me wonder how difficult it may be to deadlift in the 300's again.

Weight 153lbs this morning

First time I've done strict chins in a long time, I'm surprised by the number. Also tried out my belt today after the new one came in, this one fit and so far I like it. I feel like a total badass wearing it, ok maybe not but still.
