Pushing up intensity day for awhile.

Weight is holding steady at 180. I haven't bothered to count calories this week and it doesn't seem to have done me any harm. 90% of the weight I had gained previously was because of frequent shitty food choices and stuffing myself before bed. I think if I just avoid those two things I'll be fine.

I did a single with 255 and it felt super easy so I decided to jump up 10 pounds this workout. I'm glad I did because 260 was also easy. Very excited about getting my squat strength back!

Sunday January 20th

Weighted Chin Up
57.5x5x3


I should be good for 60x5, which would give me about 100x1. That's under ideal circumstances though.

Shrugs
285x3x20


Really light, I'll take a 10 pound jump next workout.

BB Row
60x3x20


The burning I feel doing these, and the pump afterwards, is really crazy considering the weight.

The abs situation is improving, I'm starting to be able to see my obliques contract more in the right light. In fact, I'm going to put up this picture for future comparison. http://i45.tinypic.com/25kpru9.jpg

I pussied out definitely, but it should not have felt this heavy. I realized after racking all the weight that it's fucking thursday, not friday.

Saturday February 9th

212.5x5


Still not that hard, thankfully.

Sunday February 10th

Weighted Chin Up
65x5x3


Starting to get challenging.

BB Row

Going to drop to sets of 15.

Weight is holding steady at 178ish, I was actually down to 176 a couple times in the past few weeks. I'm not even trying to watch what I eat or anything, which is surprising considering I used to be obese. I still need one more good cut though, maybe 3 months in duration.
