This workout I began switching to the bodybuilding part of Candito’s linear, in an attempt to build mass quickly. Also, the gym was packed so I had to do two incline motions and no flat bench. I skipped a shoulder movement.

Today (Sunday) I bought a 5 lb bag of potatoes and ate about 2 lbs in addition to a bunch of rice, lb of steak, 9 eggs and some fruits. I need to start eating more in the mornings instead of just a protein shake, protein bar and a banana.

The two biggest reasons I haven’t seen the results I desire is changing programs too rapidly and not eating enough. Weight this morning: 173 lbs

Candito’s Linear - Week 5
Monday

Cleans
2x10 95

DL
1x10 185
1x6 235
2x1 255

My back became incredibly sore after my first rep at 255. I did another rep a few minutes later to make sure it wasn’t a fluke, and my back was just done. I was mentally done as well. I walked around the gym with my back pretty much locked in place. It didn’t hurt but felt extremely sore.

I called it a day and played squash

Not sure why this is but my back is still bothering me. It feels stiff and tired.

Candito’s Linear - Week 5

My back was killing during the BB rows. I’m going to take the week of deadlifting and any other lower back exercises to make sure I’m ok.

I waited 20 minutes for a bench. By the time one opened up I had tired myself out and wasn’t ready for maxing. Thinking about mixing up my routine so I can do the max lifts at work in the morning on Mondays and Tuesdays, and go to the commercial gym Thurs/Friday Saturday for the longer sessions and to play squash.

My weight has been going up significantly. Too significantly. I have been tracking it on my phone and am up about 3 lbs in ten days. I’ll try to keep about the same to a little less of my eating going.
