Yeah, pretty much anything with legs sucks... which is why people avoid it.

I almost forgot. Yesterday night I was able to train straight leg deficit pulls and strict press.

1. 1x5, 1x5, 3x3, 5x3 ( pulls)

2. 1x3, 1x4, 3x3 press

That's the key psc. Have you changed programs up? You could be getting stale from the same rotation.

 

yeah i was changing my routine once a month to keep it fresh.  now i'm just failing to relaunch.   still haven't lifted in 3 weeks now.

In a good way?

nope

I'm plus 15 pounds in about 2 months.

Not too worried yet - I've had several wild swings in my weight in the past. Not sure why

Probably an increase in cortisol.

What do you do for a living?! That much cortisol in a life is deadly. Weight gain is only symptom. PM me. I have something you should read.

Hello my friends and fellow iron crushers! It's been a hectic few weeks with training and such, but I decided the other day that I was going to stay accountable to myself and keep this thread updated. My training is coming along great! I had some set backs from some really rough illnesses but I was able to recover and carry on. I have a beast of training partner now so he keeps me moving ahead. Thought I would fill you guys in in my new program.

Crap, early post.

But i cycled out of my strength- power phases and into a strength- hypertrophy phase. I train 7 days a week, it's rough but my recovery has been going well.

Mon- chest

Tues- back

Wed- shoulders

Thurs- arms

Fri- legs

Sat- repeat

Sun- repeat
