Good stuff brother. Looks like works being done in the gym. How about outside of it? > Diet + Sleep?

Diet is stable. Sleep is all over the place. I need to fix that

Got 8 hours of sleep last night
Missed desired rep pr by one rep on deads, press was perfect

But a pr is a pr

Dead max around 330
Press around 120


#11

I’ll take you on in a sleep contest


#12

You’ll probably win tbh.


#13

I wanna be strong like you geez


#14

In for the log.


#15

In for the @Guineapig worship. :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

Doesn’t feel like it right now as I wake up groggy as fuck. Seems like I need 10 hours or something crazy like that lol


#17

You’ll get there most likely and do better. I wasn’t lifting when I was your age so if you do all the little things right and focus on the process then long term the sky’s the limit


#18

Glad you’re establishing a good strength base straight away, I wasted time on a bro split when I was sixteen


#19

I wasted time freshman and sophomore year of high school.
I wasted time beginning of this year too. I despise my squat so much I’m finding my tm today again but this time with adequate form.


#20

I worked up to a 175 for 5 squat
This is depressing but it was 5 strong reps.
For bench
115x5 130x5 150x9
Ugh one less rep than last week.
I left out fsl because i’m sick

Yeah this is hella depressing idk if me being sick is a factor. Probably is considering my diet was all “sickness killing stuff” and I wasn’t eating right. I wished I stayed home tbh.
I’ll set my tm to 200

RRRRRGHHHGGHHHGGG
