Zephead's Log V3

My old log wouldn’t show 90% of the posts I made so I stopped trying to post in it. I’ll be starting a new one in hope that it will fix the problem.

I’m a 20 year old college student, living off campus and working as much as possible.
I’m currently trying to lose some fat from having only poor food choices during the time I lived with my parents. In march I was 225-230 pounds, now I am 195-200

Carbs: 70

I might make some eggs or turket bacon at some point as well. I’m trying to stay at or above 3000 calories a day while recomping. I find I can still make gains that way

Today in the gym
Pullups 10-8-7
Straight arm lat pulldowns: worked up to 66 3x10
Nautilus pullover 110 3x10
neutral grip pulldowns 110 2xfailure
Kroc rows (strapless) 90 3x10
Hammer strength low row 2pps 2x10

I’ve been doing nearly all new movements for upper back and it’s been extremely humbling. I’m also not pushing to failure right away because a lot of these movements irritate my shoulder, but It’s something I have to deal with.

I’m hitting the gym every single day if I can, and I rotate through every bodypart every 6 days. Tonight or Tomorrow I will be hitting hamstrings.

Today: Hamstrings

Pin good mornings

I lot of this stuff felt pretty strong, holding contractions and stretches of some of the movements felt really good. I feel like my right leg is taking over on the GHRS so I won’t be using weight on them until I can get both legs to work evenly.
