I hope you get your goal, bro and thanks for dropping by. Sorry I've been so busy lately I haven't had time to check in as much as I'd like to.

Grip Training
Mesocycle 20 - Week 1

Beginning Thoughts:
I hadn't eaten enough so I decided to skip working out today. Decided to do some grip training instead.
Workout:
Walmart Gripper:
5 reps x 2 sets
Set 1 was done slow and Set 2 was done faster. 1.5 minutes rest between sets.

Heavy Gripper 150:
2 reps x 2 sets
No setting for the gripper for this. It felt kinda difficult. Rest Interval was 2 minutes.

Captain of Crush (CoC) #1:
4 Singles
2 Doubles
This was very difficult and took everything I had. Naturally, I used a setting for this because I'm still new at this. I managed a clean close on two of the singles. Everything else was really close. But this is an improvement from last time where I couldn't even close one.

Heavy Gripper 150:
6 reps
With setting and done quick. A good finisher.

Hand Extensions:
2 bands x 20 reps x 3 sets
Videos:
Nothing special.
Overall Impression:
Looking forward to tomorrow's workout....

Squat Training
Mesocycle 20 - Week 1

Beginning Thoughts:
Worked out late tonight....I had barely eaten any food all day. Weird.
Workout:
Pull-ups:
BW x 14 reps
BW x 11 reps

BW x 9 reps
Total = 44 reps
Tiring....

Front Squats:

This is Week 9 of Brad Gillingham's cycle. Last week is max-out session of sorts. I paused at the bottom of the 270 lbs. Felt really awesome.

Lunge with Unilateral Press = 40 lbs x 5 reps
Renegade Rows = 40 lbs x 5 reps
Kettlebell Swings = 60 lbs x 10 reps

Felt gooooood.....I almost threw up after the second round.

Yeah...I have a lot more flow now and I know how to tackle it better.

It still needs work but that will improve with time. I'm not perfect at anything but I definitely strive to be!

Press Training
Mesocycle 20 - Week 2

Beginning Thoughts:
Just got done working out...
Workout:
Banded Overhead Press:
155 lbs x 2 reps @ 94%
155 lbs x 2 reps @ 94%
165 lbs x 1 rep @ 100%
155 lbs x 2 reps @ 94%
The goal was to hit 3 doubles above 90% of my max plus one single at 100%. Next week the goal is to hit 4 doubles. I'm gonna slowly increase the volume to 7 doubles hopefully.

Incline Crazy Bell Bench Press:
185 lbs x 4 reps x 3 sets
This was hard but I'm damn proud of myself for following through on this.

Side Lateral Raises:
12.5 lbs x 15 reps x 3 sets
I need to be careful with this exercise because of my shoulder injuries.

Superset

Inverted Rows:
BW x 15 reps x 3 sets
The pump I got from this super set is unbelievable.

Side Plank Rows:
BW x 30 seconds x 3 sets
Videos:
A little of everything:
Overall Impression:
I haven't eaten anything save 3 scoops of whey first thing in the morning and then my usual 2 scoops of Whey + 2 scoops of Dex during my workout...

My diet has been really good over the last 2 weeks. The last few days I've intentionally tried to keep myself eating clean but over the last 2 weeks I have managed to go from 205 lbs to 195 lbs. I know it's not water weight because when I weighed myself today at 195 lbs I was bloated like a pig and constipated as hell lol...
