That's great.. Definately wise to err on the side of caution for your first week. That leaves everything open for your remaining couple of weeks to really go for broke with the weight. I like the closegrip compound in between there just for that extra chest activation.

Legs
Squats 5 x 5 (pyramid to top set)
3 plates + 25/side x 3
3 plates + 25/side x2 *


Goodmornings or SLDL: 2 x 10 1 plate +25/side
Leg Press: 2 x 20 3 plates/side
Gluteham Raise: 2-3 sets to failure


Thoughts: Felt pretty good today although on squats, my back gave up early. Legs were strong, but I couldnt stop my back from leaning forward. On a side note, it could have been the bar which was bent and I had to keep it on an awk angle to keep it from rolling. lol or it could have just been my back. I never had problems with 3 plates +25 before.

^^ dam dude, be very careful with shitty bars like that, dont want to see you screw your self up over some dumb shit.

Strong squats none the less slayer, good bread (as monsta would say)

Ya man don't let shitty equipment take you out the game. You've come so far! Very strong squats nonetheless.

Yesterday:Cardio

Diet: I have made a couple of changes to my diet to try and lean out a bit. 1) I cut out milk 2) Changed potato to sweet patato. and 3) I cut out my weight gainer on non-training days.

Training:
Incline Bench 5x5: 2 plates plus 7.5/side
- Same weight, but much lighter and much more power.

Dips 4-8 ^: Bodyweight, 35, 45, 65
-Increased weights, much more power.

Flyes: 35
-Still feels funny doing them, but I do get a good stretch out of it.

Lateral Raises 30
- Same weight, shoulders a bit burnt out by now.


I did notice more general POWER in my incline bench which I love.

Weight down to 219.7 from 225.

Arms:
Tricets
Skulls 25/side
Close Grip 1 plate and 25/side
Skulls 25/side

Reverse Curls 20/side
Zottman 30/arm
Reverse Curls 20/side

It was pretty funny using such light weights, but by the end of the workout my arms were just dead. Took only 30 mins.

I havent had the chance to take any new measurments, but arms now are greater then 17" cold.

Still torn between going the powerlifting route or BBing in the future. I do want to get stronger, but likewise I do want to maintain the aesthetic side.

Thoughts: The power of the mind is insane, last week although I was well rested and was eating proper could not manage 3+25 on squats. Today, hungry and sleepy as hell I just thought about the DL video posted by andrew ...pumped myself up like crazy and managed with little effort. Next week if all goes well I will aim for more weight.

My weight is a solid 220, which I am happy with since diet and rest hasnt been great this week. I was using a lot of liquid meals instead of proper food.

All in all pretty good, not sure if I will have time for gym tomorrow but will try.

I went through this a couple of years ago. I had a long talk (at that time) with madcow who used to be an active and extremely knowledgable member both here and elsewhere. We both agreed that everyone will get to a "point" where there is an impasse. To continue seriously bodybuilding (which becomes stale, and also becomes extremely taxing dieting wise) or the other path (ie. strongman, powerlifting, ect).

Now, the easiest choice comes with picking one or the other obviously. The more you convoluted your goals are, the less likely you are going to be to believe in what you're doing and succeed. Being willing to do whatever it takes to drive up your big three, well that's the mindset of powerlifting. If that means not doing biceps curls, running/jogging, doing a lot of chest isolations, ect because none of it helps, then you don't do it obviously. Why bother putting forth any effort into something that's not going to give you anything in return? Likewise, you're not going to do goodmorning variations and box squatting like a madman for max singles because it's a waste of time for a bodybuilder. I'm speaking from experience when I say hovering in "limbo" between both worlds only slows down any measurable progress either way.

^ Now, that's waay later down the line I'm guessing, which is great. Just food for thought! In the meantime, I know you've been doing more powerlifting orientated training for a while now, so you'll know when that day comes what you want out of your training. The only thing I've believed in since I started training seriously after the Marines is that if you're going to look strong, you'd better be strong.
