Squat Day
Cycle 18


Overall Impression:
so..ive been a little behind on replying to private messages, reading other journals, etc etc...well, i apologize. the last 4 days have been pretty hectic. i finished 4 finals in 3 days. 2 were today back to back. i have been sleeping for only 5-6 hours a night (which is pretty normal for me) however ive been studying for 12+ hours every day which is NOT norma for me.

well, in relation to diet: ive been getting my protein in most of the time. i forgot my omega 3 fatty acid pills yesterday. i am also sick lol...i have fever plus a cold and a cough. not feeling too good to be honest. but im getting better. i feel better today.

because i had 2 exams back to back today i havent been able to workout. i will do 3 workouts in a row. saturday = press assistance day, sunday = deadlift day and monday = military press day.

come next wednesday i am heading out to new york to spend 2 weeks with some cousins of mine before i begin summer school back here at trinity. during those 2 weeks i will most likely only workout 2-3 times at the most. my training will be eratic and so will my posting. i apologize if i skip anyone's journal....i will be back at this once i get back to trinity and start summer school.

regarding my programming: i have been at this training for 18 weeks now however my mentor Eric and I believe that i need a more focussed approach for the time being. a lot of my training has been "going by feel" and while i have been able to pull it off successfully for the last 18+ weeks, i am beginning to run into a wall. not in the sense of progression: i am progressing very well. i am however kinda feeling shitty, unmotivated, etc etc..this next 2 week deload will do me good hopefully. but, when i come back i am most likely going to be following Eric Cressey's program in his book Maximum Strength. i will keep y'all updated. I have not received the book as yet....I will be receiving it next week and i will spend the 2 weeks reading up on it
The Workout:
Mobility Drills
these felt pretty good today...

Overhead Squats
i practiced stopping at different depths.

Safety Bar Squats
- 225 lbs x 3 reps
i am counting the bar as 45 lbs because i have no clue what the SSB really weighs. in any case, this was a tough challenge and i think i did well.

Box Squats
- 245 lbs x 3 reps x 3 sets
same as last time.....i wasn't in the mood to push myself...weird. i wasn't even focussed.

Ab Work
- Side Body Raises = 8 reps x 2 sets
- Planks = @ 1 minute x 2 sets

Grip Work
- Plate Pinches = 25 lbs x 20 seconds x 2 sets

Sorry to hear about your exams, hopefully it won't be that bad. Let me know how you like Cressey's program as it should help remotivate you. Good luck.
