Rope Curls on Pulley: didn’t track weight. I use whatever feels good. 40-60lbs for 3 sets to muscle exhaustion.

Didn’t really feel that strong today. 405 on the deadlift was a personal best as I usually only workout with 315x10. New Goal - 405x5

I really need to build up my back. Its tough, I feel small and I think a better back will fill out my overall build.

Hammer Strength - 90x10 180x10 180x10

This Training Log stuff sucks. I’m not sure how everyone is able to keep a copy of all their hard work.
Over the new 4-6 weeks, I’m using another lift cycle.

I call it the 315 because I use that weight for my 3 main excercises: Bench; Squat; Deadlift.

DL: 135x10; 225x8; 315 x 7 for (3 working sets).
Bench: 13515; 22515; 315 x 7 (3 working sets).
Squat: You get the picture.

I’ll do this 3 times this week and next week I increase my working sets to 10 reps.

Other body parts get minor maintanance.

My goal is to put on a little mass during this phase. I’m currently 240 and I’d like to be a solid 245 in 4 weeks. We shall see.

DL: 135x10; 315 x 10 for (3 working sets).
Bench: 13515; 2255; 315 x 10 (3 working sets).
Squat: bw x 5; 225x 5; 315x 7(3 sets)

I was gassed this morning. Did the workout in approx 30 min. I’m going to have to work to get my squat up to 10 reps.

Finished up my Mass Phase. 4 Weeks of Heavy Compound and eating like a pig. I’ve put on 4 lbs of mass at 18% BF which is good for me. I struggle to eat enough food to really grow.

315lbs is no joke on the lower back either. My Back is much more solid now. I feel like a MAN!!! lol.

I have a 5K run coming up at the end of the month, so I’m going to see how much of this weight I can hold on to while dropping Body Fat.

Long time since posting on here.

Sitting at 240lbs now. This is my new set point.

Triceps today
Bench Dips - 10xbw; 10x1wheel; 10x2wheels; 10x3; 10x4
Reverse grip Bench -135x10; 225x10; 275x10; 315x8

I’ve had a major setback and haven’t been lifting for two weeks now. I got an infection in my arm that had to be surgically removed.

The photo doesn’t do justice to the size of the hole in my arm.

I’ll probably be sidelined for a few more weeks before I can get ready to MASS up again. I’m down to about 230lbs.

Been awhile since I’ve posted on here. Hard to keep up with a log but good to review where you were vs where you are.

505 DL for 2 singles. Missed 555 (poor form) This was midway through a back workout so I definatly think I can pull more.
