    This is a continuation of an older log.

    Started: 195lbs
    Currently: 6'0 219lbs

    I've gained about 20lbs in 3 months. I'm not a freak or anything, but I had Salmonella and Ecoli back to back. So as soon as I could actually stomach food I started eating and haven't stopped. I recalculated my daily caloric intake and it's between 3500 and 4000.

    Thanks for the comments. This is really just a continuation of another log that will remain nameless. Anyways just did cardio today.

    Body weight circuits for 35 minutes and the March conditioning challenge. I did it in 6:20. The tuck jumps and burpees were hell. Pretty sure i cheated a little so i should probably add about 30 seconds. I'll probably try again next week.

    You should consider training UFC with your bench.

    Deadlift
    1x10x135
    1x5x235
    1x5x270
    1x5x305
    1x5x340
    1x5x375
    Form went to shit on fourth rep of 375. Got it back together for my 5 rep. Either way the damage is done. I'll doing a lot of sitting around tomorrow. Still 20 pounds heavier than last week.

    OHP
    1x10xbar
    1x5x95
    1x5x120
    1x5x135
    1x5x150
    1x5x165
    Usually i just touch and go but i decided to come all the way back down for one count on each rep in my last set. 5 pounds heavier than last week.

    OH Pullups
    1x10
    1x8
    I've given up on doing weighted chins. For some reason my shoulders really dont like it. So I usually just do a couple sets every time I lift. I'm just trying to maintain what little strength I do have and get stronger on rows.

    Zercher Squats
    1x5x135
    1x5x165
    1x5x185
    1x5x205
    1x4x225
    Bar started slipping on 4 rep of last set so racked it and called it a day. Good day overall made progress in each lift. Still experiencing semi noob gains since taking a few months off.

    I really dont think i got deep enough in my last set. So I might just try the same weight again next Friday or just bump it 5 pounds.

    205 was actually pretty easy, but my back was fried from shitty form on Wednesday's deadlift and doing squats, so I just called it a day.

    God damn. I just looked at my last log and I did hang cleans @ 205 last week. I know i could have gotten 215 too. Pisses me off.

    Got stuck on fifth rep of 285, but at least I'm over the Sherdog weight.

    Went to Golds today instead of my works gym. Golds has no bumper plates or a designated area for cleans or snatches. So its kind of a pain in the ass and everybody looks at you like some kind of freak.

    OH Pullups
    1x8
    1x10
    I'm getting pretty good at these. I might start adding an extra set.

    Squats
    1x10x135
    1x5x225
    4x5x265
    I didnt add weight on these from the previous week. Not gonna lie, might have had too many Guinness last night. Either way they felt really good and I actually just sat for a second or two of the last rep of each set. Definitely stronger than last week.

    Overall a pretty good day. I feel like I was stronger on each lift than the previous week. The gains are gonna start slowing down though. I'm about 20 pounds off of my old maxes soooooooo.

    i realize watching basketball and drinking beer instead of lifting is a douche move, but its March Madness for God's sake. I will be back Monday. I guarantee a PR squat and clean next week.

    I have felt like shit since Saturday. Drank entirely too much this weekend. Basically all I did from Wednesday night until Saturday night was drink beer and eat pizza. So I have decided not to drink, stay up late, or eat garbage for the next month and see what kind of results I get. Today's workout wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. I was definitely lagging half way through.

    Bench
    1x10x135
    1x5x175
    1x5x205
    1x5x235
    1x5x265
    1x3x295
    I realize that I didnt get 285 for five last week, but I still had to try and keep pushing through. Next week I'm going for 300 and I guarantee at least 4 reps.

    Power Cleans
    1x10x135
    1x5x165
    1x5x185
    1x5x205
    1x5x225
    225 was easier than expected. I definitely think I could have gotten 235. I'll just bump it up to 235 next week. 235x5 would be a new Personal Record.

    OH Pullups
    2x10

    Squats
    1x10x135
    1x3x185
    1x3x225
    3x5x275
    These felt pretty good. It seems like the reoccurring theme of the day has been "your a spent little pussy." Even though the weight didn't feel heavy I still just felt exhausted. Hopefully a month of clean livin will straighten me right out. I'm still going 315x5 on Friday which will be a personal record.

    New Personal Record. 265 would have been a PR but I got it pretty easy so I figured I would just go ahead and give 275 a shot. First time I got my right hand under it but for some reason my left wouldn't cooperate. Second attempt I got under it and damn near started running. After about 5 steps forward I got my balance, stood for a second, and dropped it.

    Fuck me. So much for guaranteeing 4. I had it damn near locked out when I lost it. If it was a fraction it would have been 19/20 of a rep. Did a set of pause and explode with 225.

    I hadn't done weighted pull ups in a while, because they usually hurt my shoulders. Today they felt pretty good though. I'll have to work on these and try to get the weight up.

    Squats
    1x10x135
    1x3x185
    1x3x225

    The snatches killed me on these. My back was definitely fried. Form pretty much went to shit on the 3 rep of each set.

    Good day overall. I was really wanting to set a new PR on bench, but oh well, I'll get it next week. At least I have snatches to kind of feel good about.

    Did a little running, some circuits, rode stationary bike, ran some more. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing. Sherdog sucks now, this is the only decent place on the site I can post.

    Fuck lifting at 8:30 at night.

    1x5x375
    1x5x410 New PR
    There was definitely some rounding of the back going on in the last set. I had to wait 10 minutes before I could even think about OHP. My back felt fine but this was the most mentally and physically taxing set of anything I have ever done.

    OHP
    1x10xBar
    1x5x105
    1x5x125
    1x5x145
    1x5x165
    1x5x185 New PR
    165 felt really heav and my back was definitely feeling the affects of the heavy deads. I took about 5 minutes rest before I did my final set. Last rep of 185 was slllooooow but I locked it out. Nice improvement from last week.

    T-Bar Rows
    1x5x1 45lbs Plate
    1x5x2 Plates
    1x5x3 Plates
    1x5x4 Plates
    I usually do pullups or barbell rows. Pullups I'm limiting to Monday's and Friday's weighted 5x5. Barbell rows...no chance after deads and OHP.

    OH Shrugs
    1x20x70
    1x15x90

    High Bar Squats 3 Second pause at bottom
    1x10x135

    Damn good day. 2 PR's, but it will definitely be the last time I lift this late. There is no chance of getting to sleep at a decent hour tonight. Luckily I'm off tomorrow. The gains keep coming. I guess the few months I was forced to take off have helped me in the long run.
