Sunday April 29th

Chin Up
2x5


Way too hard.

The good news is that I am now unquestionably 20% bodyfat. That leaves about 12 more weeks of cutting before I reach my goal of 12% bodyfat/decently visible abs. Not bad.

Monday April 30th

Press
45x8
75x5
95x3
110x10x1
130x3
140x2
115x5


130 felt so light and easy I thought I for sure I had a PR with 140, but no. I was shaking like a leaf on the last set of 5. No strength loss in I think 4 weeks though, that's something.

Dips
2


The double felt pretty hard, and my sternum hurt too much to do another rep. Need to give it more rest.

Tuesday May 1st

Squat
135x5
185x3
225x2
275x1
315x1
350x1
350x0


Changes must be made. First step is going to be moving my cheat meal to Monday instead of Friday. I think I'll also start taking a more relaxed approach to weight/sets/reps like I've done with my pressing, and train the squat every 72 hours.

DB Row
40x5
80x5
120x5
110x5

Bench Press

135x5
185x3

230 I had intended to be a single but it flew up like the first rep of a set of 5. I was surprised, lost tightness, and grinded out the second rep.

No pr today, but that's no surprise. 206 this morning though.

No belt, 1 minutes rest. Not going to go too crazy on the volume here, instead I'll let the frequency do the work. Had 315 probably, not much more than that.

Starting to look like I lift without a t shirt, yee haw.

No warm up, just wanted to get it over with honestly. Heavy. I'm going to reset, start just having fun with the sets and reps.

Tuesday May 8th

Press
45x8
65x3
100x15x1
115x1
135x9x1


PR for singles with 1 minutes rest. Struggled to open a door at the convienance store today for some reason so I had to see if I was getting weaker. Down to 202 today, a loss of 6 pounds in 11 days. Not sure why that's happening, although it's probably the squats.

Chin Ups
11


All time PR at any body weight. Shaking like crazy after this set.

Dips
7


All time PR sadly. Good day.
