Teen Named Tim with Long Limbs

Damn. Getting strong.

a lot of posts over the past year and a half. Mind summarizing what you have been running?

I have been running a lot of 5/3/1 variations. I’ve ran a couple of the 5/3/1 full body templates and then I ran 5/3/1 coffinworm. After that I ran God is a beast but, I stopped mid way. Now I’m running Deepwater beginner.

Cool deal man keep it up!

@T3hPwnisher I’m visiting my uncle on friday right after work(not my choice). I’d really hate to miss benching. Any suggestions with frankensteining or should I just miss that day.

I would make that my conditioning day and bench the next time I get access to weights

Nice lifting session. Before I went to the gym, my mom wanted to try some Japanese place so I drove us there. We got our food and we went back to the apartment. I went to the gym and did this session and I come home and take a shower. I pick up the brown paper back which was all greasy and the next thing you know, my beef teriyaki is having sex with the kitchen floor. Appetite and mood ruined…

If you read this I hope you enjoyed the story. I am very sad now

Those high volume deadlifts sound brutal

They’re gonna be worse in the next couple of weeks because i’ll have less rest time between sets.

@T3hPwnisher Sup Pwn. Back from my little vacation so I’m doing the friday bench session I missed right now. For the 3 x 10 flat bench. It’s not supposed to feel like kind’ve a grind right?

I did 3 x 10 with 155 but it was pretty hard. I think 145 lbs should ballpark it but deepwater is supposed to be hard so I’m conflicted yk. Any tips (i’ll throw up my ohp session from last week and todays session soon I’ve been busy with work stuff)

I take 3:40 for rest times on week 1 and then cut rest times by 20 seconds so it’s 2 minutes on week 6. I am able to get all sets and all reps on week 1. I add 5lbs total whenever I can do that. When I no longer can, I do as many reps as I can in the 3 sets.

Once intermediate rolls around and I am back to 3:40 rests, I can usually bypass any stalls.

Unfortunately I forgot the back extensions. I went out the gym thinking it was gonna be planks and sit-ups afterwards but I was wrong.

I’m halfway through the program (it would’ve made more sense to post this tomorrow since the bench day is the last training day of the week). I have also been keeping up with the diet. I’m really proud of myself for eating this much. I don’t really see any difference in my body so far when it comes to aesthetics but, training is starting to feel pretty easy. Well not super easy but it’s feeling smoother. I love this program so far regardless. It makes me eat

Eating is the main reason I’m so lazy to post most of the time lol. I’m eating as I’m typing this. After eating I’m on auto pilot and I just get ready for tomorrow’s day of work.

The active recovery day is the last day of the week. DON’T SKIP IT! If you want those physique improvements you’re seeking, you can’t cut out an entire day of training like that.

Good on you for getting the food in dude. It’s crucial.

Happy to read this man. I normally find my body lags behind a few weeks when I change stuff up. It’ll show soon enough as long as you’re leaving it all out there while lifting
