Goblinns Log

im staring a log. I really hope i can be faithful to it. ive never wrote down what ive been doing but a friend of mine has inspired me

Today was bench day. I did a ME bench a couple days ago and wanted to really hit some rep work which i havent done in a while

bench press
315x10 PR
strained my left pec a little

bb rows
335x6 PR

pull up
3x20 PR

push press
315 PR

triceps extensions with green band pull apart
12 pulls with 12 ext using 80 on the machine for 4

alot of sets of biceps i didnt count. I think i was having an imbalance that has been causing my diffrent pec strains ive been having. i havent been working biceps sinve i started powerlifting

overall very good training

body weight is about 225 give or take. BF is about 14-15%

Today Im working the dead. I hope it goes well. Im babying an injured hip flexor so my squats have been next to nil. just ext and partial leg press. i think ill do some gpp work after. gotta get ready for that PFT!

dead day
135 x million
525x2 PR

lots of deads today.

i did other smaller things but the dead was my focus. I tried to do leg press but my hip was bothering. I did light biceps to hit that biceps tendon with some blood too. not too bad, the 525 for 2 was a pr

upright rowing
leg curls
stiff leg dumbell 5x5 with 120’s

I was suppose to run but i think ill take 2 marow off from lifting and do it then. sprints, runnung and GPP

hard to do abs with my hip. i try and keep them tight when i do my big lifts and it works em.
hip is affecting my sex… damn


Today is GPP work. some sprints and sleds in the AM and then some club bell and grip work tonite. fun fun fun

I did my GPP. It lasted alot longer than I thought. I did a light jog with a 40 lb vest (10-15 min?)then I did several variations of tire dragging. forward, backward, sprinting, lunging pulling and dragging.

I think I worked out too long though. Im very tired. I couldnt really hit abs but my quads got a good work out. Im going to have to start doing these more to hit hit quads while IM unable to squat.

this morning I did bench work but i felt the strain in my pec pretty good. I got up to triples with 315 but stopped early and went to a smith machine to see if it got better. It didnt. then I went to a seated cable fly and tried to just some blood into the area and help it heal faster

Nice work son. Getting shit done as usual. I kind of stressed my pec doing rack pulls the other night, lol. Not too serious but weird for sure.

You in Yuma yet? How you liking those Z presses? I like the fuck outta them. We got 2 new highschool kids in tonight. One of them is 17 and he is 5, 7 and 250 pounds. He’s a Little tank man. He benches over 400 raw and says he squats around 550.

What the hell are these kids eating these days? Don’t think its Vitamin T or anything at his age. Anyways… I fucking love the Tren. Violence bro, violence. James is preaching to me about over training but I feel like a million bucks especially with that gallon of milk per day.

Anyways… Keep in touch with me daily bro. I’ll be hoping you come back when you 're done with Japan. I wanna see a 630 dead, 600 squat and a 430 bench by the time you get back.


today is my day off. im eating and trying to rest. i think im in need for a deload because my bodyweight has stopped increasing and im at a snails pace. when I hit it im good. I dont know. I think instead ill just take 3 days off and not do anything but sleep eat and stretch.

training is going good. Ill be back in the last week of june, maybe the first week of july. Im not too sure just yet. that gives me 2 solid months of training.

crazy mutants!!! Im jealous. anyways, stay strong bro.

maybe i should just eat more

I think you got GPP crazy there for a little while. Back off all the sled and sprinting work and you will probably continue to put on some more muscle.

Or you could just up the dose. J/K
