Thank god you’re doing 5/3/1. mj was getting a tad too full.

JD, good numbers. You have a very strong squat, and I certainly wouldn’t mind having your bench.

Keep posting.

Way to kick ass on 5/3/1. You’re really repping out the last set. Good way to add the muscle mass.

Thanks for the comments!

Feel pretty weak compared to some of the real lifters that post here… Looking foward to improving my numbers over time. I have never really deadlifted, love to squat and my military seems pretty weak.

I will post weekly, if any of you notice that I am doing something stupid please feel free to speak up.

My hams are still sore from Friday workout! Sweet!

JD

Reading Meats, Petes and Hels threads makes everyone feel weak.

Great lifting keep at it.

Rough week, with conference and all, late nights, all day meetings, gym too far away. Doing week two this week. Report back on Sat.

Good to be off the deload week! I was in Hawaii and it still SUCKED

Started ANACONDA 2 this week instead of the CT PRE/PARA prior to ANACONDA. Very clean diet, looking foward to the balance off the year, really clicked in on all phases. GYM/FOOD/REST.

I start I,BODYBUILDER in 9/1, any thoughts on rest in between 5/3/1 and the new program? Seems like a bit heavier deload week would be fine.
