Jlabs Chaotic Methods

Starting a log. So I can document and learn from what I should and shouldn’t do.
Clean and jerks with 25s on bb/ 1 plate clean n jerks
Deadlifts 225x5 275x3 315x3 365x2
Left some in the tank so I can try to get past 405 next week or in 2 weeks.
Bench light day worked up to 185 3x5, had some bad shoulder pain yesterday from over use I believe.
Facepulls work up to 100 and do around 6-8

Light shoulder work, lateral raises with 10s and 20s, try not 2 bend elbows and keep arms straight.
Worked up too 60 pound db presses for 8 reps. I usually se 70s put trying not to aggravate shoulder it feels good today.
Going to do some light presses later for a good pump.

I mostly train for strength but I have realized that getting past my current maxes is hard as hell so I am going to put on at least 10 pounds and see if that helps.
Experienced ambres let me know what you think I should do in the regards of gaining weight. I am very active so I know I need to eat alot more people ask me currently why I eat two dinners and I say because I need it lol. Thanks in advance.

Classic T-Nation pose

reverse hypers and ab work went wild, ladies scoping no biggie!

Bench day went well. Got 205 for 4 one shy of a previous best. Isn’t shabby considering I havn’t taken creatine since the summer so I’m keeping the muscle endurance I have previously lacked in prior years.
