5/29

Squat: 115 x 5, 145 x 5, 175 x 5
SLDL: 135 x 3 x 8
One-Arm deads: worked up to 145 x 3 per arm

Calfs and Abs afterwards

In deciding to "further" organize my training, I'm cutting exercises down to a few per day in keeping with 5 3 1. Keeping it basic and strong in other words. Conditioning I'm just following Dereks advice and keeping it to maybe 2 days a week of whatever, a run here, row or sprint maybe a CF workout nothing complicated.

And because it is something fun to do im going to work towards a skill for a while in this case I choose one-arm deads because so far they are fun and challenging. I'll practice on lower body days and might work on variations of chins for upper body days.

If I stumble or get off track, and things start to get complicated yell at me or scold me in your internet ways.

Hey Kevin,

I noticed you were from Greenville. There is a powerlifting meet in Easley on August 21st. I thought you might be interested. I think I will compete for fun (I mainly focus on olympic lifting).

Thanks for the info William, I'll keep an eye on it but I'll likely have to pass on competitions this year because I'm very busy with some things that are taking a lot of my time. Are you from the area and competing in it?

6/2

Shitty day

This morning sucked I felt all sorts of exhaustion and felt oddly down, weight is down to 163 and the workout flat out sucked.

I warmed up to 155 with power cleans then as I went to deadlift I felt all funky and then tore a callus on my hand and started bleeding, Right where I wrap comfortably around the bar.

Picking up 95 felt like shit and I tore my hand at 285 so I walked out since mentally and physically I wasn't there.

Eh I'm also feeling a little burned out from classes since I have a summer semester and it's rough already.

Yesterday's workout was good so something between last night and now just screwed things.

You made the right decision. Is your schedule a lot different when you are in summer session? How about your eating habits? Shitty workouts suck but not as bad as hurting yourself trying to push through.

With summer means more working hours on different shifts so my schedule is odd, I've been working mornings, afternoons and nights which vary throughout the week. That combined with summer sessions makes me tired a lot.

Diet has been alright I just don't always get enough meals and the last couple of weeks I haven't had as much time to eat as I'd like. I was thinking of going 3 days a week vs. 4 for recovery because getting to the gym on a mon/tue, thu/fri split is getting hard to do.

If you actually like working out more why not M-T-Th-Sat?

I feel you on the summer sessions though. I often was more tired after Summer and Winter sessions than during the regular school year.
