Got sick last week, then just as sinuses were feeling better, woke up and my lower back was spasming like a son of a bitch so missed another few days. Feeling better both back and head cold, I tend to do a couple full body pump days coming off of a week or more missed, so working through those. Not upping the TRT dose until I get my diet cleaned up more, need to show myself more discipline before I dive in.
Feeling better from illness and can move more freely but the low back is still pissed. Doing solid upper body work and doing a shitload of body weight squats every session. Attempting to clean up my diet, not going to move my TRT dosage up until I’ve shown I can be disciplined with diet again, ha, figure that’s my carrot.
Still here, took a week off for a family wedding in the mountains, ate, drank, and was merry. Took a minute to recover, but I’m back and feeling pretty good. Did a week of full body pump to flush the system, feels good.
Weight: 227 (density = mass)
4 x 5 x 225
Ouch, haven’t squatted for awhile due to the low back shit, boy is that a perishable skill staying away from deadlift, but squats feel ok as far as pain.
Weight: 228 (down with the thickness)
Squat 4 x 5 x 225
DL 4 x 5 x 275
Still at it, been taking it easy on the lower back, but I need to stop milking it and just start training it to get back, because while I haven’t ‘skipped’ days, definitely been a pile of shit on them haha
Still going 4-5 days a week. Lifts are going decent. Had a video, it’s too big. Stupid high reps
225 x 30. Got into some rep challenge stuff with guys at work and it’s been fun. Did 135 x 46 two weeks ago. 225 x 30 this week, next will be 275, 315, and so on. Fun way to get back in the grind of deadlifting after having a screwed up whatever it was for a few weeks
Edit: also have fully embraced the thiccness
Solid benching and looking solid too mate. Quality
315 x 20
I’m losing about 5 reps mentally per 40-50lbs it seems like. Need to bring a little better mental fortitude to the gym.
