A solid day. Wasn't sure if I'd complete bench but I did and squats went up pretty easy. Generally happy.

Here is a question for anyone/everyone:

I've noticed my weight has started leveling off. However, I'm also doing 3x3 now. Can I expect to be putting on muscle mass with the lower volume program? Should I leave the cals the same as the strength seems to continue to increase or should I bump it up?

Also, I will be starting Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 soon (when this 3x3 runs it's course) and I believe I'll be trying the "boring but big" variation. Any tips on that?

I'd like to put on some mass but I'm trying to do it in a very controlled manner... aka adding as little fat as possible.

BW: 184.6lb ... it seems to have stalled out here...


Military Press
bar x 10
65lb x 5
85lb x 5
105lb x 5
125lb x 3
145lb x 1
155lb 3x3 (PR)

Last rep was a Grinder!

Deads
mobility work
60kg x 5
100kg x 4
120kg x 3
145kg x 2
155kg 3x3

Just kept thinking "stay tight" throughout and I made er through. I may have a shot at my 160kg 3x3 goal.


Pull Ups
bw x 11,10,8

Took alot more rest between sets and it helped the 2nd and 3rd set a lot.

Overhand EZ Bar Curls
30lb x 15
40lb x 14,12,12
40lb x 7 (reg grip ... drop set on last set)

Thoughts

Well I hope I have a couple weeks left of this 3x3 cycle... we shall see!

increase cals/volume slightly...that should do what you're looking for.....maybe try it out.

I woke up feeling shitty this morning so I called in to work. I have a stupid head cold again. Arg. But I decided to drag my ass to the gym anyways. I'm glad I did because it made me feel a lot better and I actually accomplished what I set out to do.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Well today was the day for bench to stall out. It was going to happen eventually. I may give it a crack again next week. We'll see. I'm still pretty happy with the results.
