    Up until the end of my first two squat working sets, I felt great. I was tight, stable, technique on point, I was in the zone. Then boom, sudden poo attack.

    Made it to the bathroom on time, but when I came back, I wasn’t the same man. I felt like I couldn’t get as tight as before, not as stable, goodmorning a bit on some squats. I felt drained of energy for the rest of the workout, it was weird. Here’s hoping my next workout is better, but the good news is my shoulder/elbow didn’t hurt at all!

    No preworkout. I ran out last session, and I’m gonna give it a go for a bit without it. It helped me a lot to wake up and get motivated from lack of sleep, but that’s about it. So, on to the old natural path again.

    Today’s workout was good. Deadlifts felt really good. I had to readjust my grip a couple of times, as per usual, but I was never about to drop the bar. Bench was great too. The weight was flying up!

    Pull-ups are still the bane of my existence.

    Skipped dips today, just ran out of energy. Ah well.

    Worked out this morning before work. I felt like I could have really used some preworkout for a pick me up (I don’t drink coffee). Soldiered on and did ok, besides wanting to sleep between every set.

    Squats were ok at best. Couldn’t keep my upper back tight enough for the last rep on my top set, so I had to rerack, reset, and then hit it.

    OHP, still didn’t hit my 5 reps, but I got 4.5, which is technically another PR. Felt good.

    The rest of the workout went fine. I’m debating resetting my squat and press at lower numbers, or just switching up the rep scheme.

    Switching over to night shift schedule, I woke up late from my afternoon nap, and rushed to the gym anyways. There’s no way in hell I’d be able to squat tomorrow after my first night shift. Unfortunately for me, I was only in the gym for 25 minutes. I got 4 out of 5 of my squat working sets in though, which went a lot better than I expected.

    Not taking preworkout, I don’t feel bloated at the gym, which feels really good unsurprisingly. The true test will be how I feel going to the gym on a lack of sleep, going in to my 3rd night shift in a couple of days though.

    Squat
    45lbs x 5

    Went to gym with only 3.5 hours of sleep, and surprisingly did pretty well, besides having to fight the urge to sleep between sets.

    Deadlifts were meh. My grip is still an issue.

    Bench is somehow still improving and feeling good, even though im only doing it once a week.

    Pull ups, well, I added 2 extra reps compared to last week in the same amount of sets. So I’m glad there’s improvement there.

    I barely ate on Saturday, as I was busy catching up on sleep. Was missing some serious energy yesterday. Besides missing reps on my top set of squats, everything else went ok. Gotta reset for next time.

    Well I got burned really bad one day at the beach not long after my last entry. Couldn’t move my shoulders much. I got into a funk, started eating like crap, and I picked up more shifts at work to fill the time.

    Lack of motivation was at an all time low, until randomly yesterday at 12:30am. Got out of bed and went for a quick gym session. I feel better already.

    This week will just be about getting back into the groove of things, and next week the fun resumes!

    Warm up week has wrapped up. Everything is feeling good. I benched for a 1RM yesterday for the first time in a long time, and i surprised the shit out of myself. Considering I don’t concentrate on it, I’m only 10lbs off my all time PR. I could have probably gotten a little closer, but benching 2 plates was enough for me.

    I did 1 ab wheel rollout yesterday (from my knees, all the way out), and I’m feeling it today. My goodness. I think I’m gonna work these in from time to time!


    The real fun begins tomorrow!
