Tumbles' Log

school gym closed had to go to local gyms… but they let me in for free so its all good

incline bench
this thing was at a retarded high angle… numbers down from it; not to mention i dont really fucking know what i did since the guy who spotted me started touching it unnecessarily from rep 4; not gonna list up ramp warm-up sets anymore either, seems pointless

Lifted light going for a good pump… “light” was harder than I thought it would be. I was really really weak on everything, hopefully that gets better.

I can’t seem to find a non-shake form of protein I can really eat yet, but mashed sweet potatoes are doing great as carbs.

What’s sad is how close to failure I was on a lot of these sets.

Your numbers are in pounds, right?

What’s your diet like?

nah they’re in grams :wink:

diet is high protein with good amounts of carbs and fats. i don’t do anything other than eat a lot of those. though right now i just had my tonsils/uvula and some other soft tissue taken out so im only eating it if it’s liquid or mushy.

getting back in to it… was really wrong about being ready last time. was right this time at least. have lost a little over 10lbs in the past 12 days. ew.

my log has no pictures so i took one of my emaciated post-op self so i can observe how much greater i am in a few weeks. i should probably aim for getting a tan in addition to getting bigger :frowning:

You arms and shoulders are fuckin solid dude. Kudos.

Thanks - long way to go though

i thought i would get more on the rack pulls. nope. i think i was stronger on them months ago

actually had a really good workout and enjoyed myself immensely for the first time in awhile… probably had to do with finally gaining strength again instead of losing it!

really fucking disappointed at how far my strength has fallen on these - though, since i managed to match what i did for rack pulls just 5 days ago (and i’m usually 20-25lbs lower on deads for same reps) i’m very sure it will be coming back quite quickly
