    Dynamic lower day:
    Box squats: 365x6x2



    2" Deficit deadlifts: 275+180 bands x6x2


    Good Mornings (off pins): 15,12,10
    Leg curls 3x15
    Ss w/abs 3xf
    Leg extensions rapid fire: 20,15,10,5

    Appetite has been up, been eating like a fatass and somehow woke up down 4lbs this morning, and that's after my rest day... wierd.

    Speaking of fatass, if you noticed the nice new Strength Shop belt, I had to order that cause I was on the last notch of my inzer belt and it was a bit too tight
    Also got some new chucks, was surprised how good they felt for the squats.

    Went in and got a good delt/bicep pump.
    Db rear delt flys; 20, 4x15
    Ss w/seated db curls; 20, 4x15

    High cable curl; 4x15
    Ss w/db side lateral raises 20, 3x15

    Easy bar curls 3x15
    Ss w/barbell front raises 3x15

    Still in a funk from yesterday, that workout helped a lil.
    Idk if i have too high expectations or am just too hard on myself, if its the increased work hours lately, the off and on issue with my forearms, a combination of it all or maybe I need to up my arimidex lol.
    I just feel like with all the work I'm putting in the gym, kitchen and everything I am not making nearly as much progress as I should be.
    Maybe I'm better off at the bodybuilding focused shit.
    I'm not a quitter, never have never will be, I will see this program through til meet day.
    Guess I just needed to vent my frustrations.

    Don’t let it get you done. You got this. The thrill is being faced with an obstacle and overcoming it.

    Can’t do a good upper body workout? Fuk it. Get thighs like tree trunks.

    I hear you man, there have been some frustrating times for me in my journey too. It seems like periods of stagnation sometimes, followed by periods of growth. Just keep trudgin'.

    All the stress and training fatigue is just masking your fitness level. Come meet day, with a proper deload, you'll realize all the hard work that you've been putting in paid off.

    It is all a process brother. Some days I feel like my wheels are spinning in the sand as I punish myself through workout after workout. I purposely kinda borderline overtrain while racing my cns, knowing that when I do take a Deload or time off due to being so close to the meet—— my strength with pop...I take 10 days off from squats/ dead’s before a meet and 8 days off for bench. Those last few days are spend stretching and doing body weight squats also allowing my cns to chill...
    stick to the process my friend, stay positive even if it is only being positive knowing your getting your ass kicked.

    At least you are healthy enough to go heavy. I’ve pulled/torn my pecs half a dozen times and really cannot go over my body weight without risking injury.

    Some good squatting there pal.

    The more you treat each rep independently, as its own workout, the better.

    Fluff n puff today;
    Barbell overhead press 5x8
    Db side lateral raises 3x20
    Db front raises 3x20
    Preacher curl 5x20
    Db hammer curl 5x20

    Got a belated bday dinner for the wife with some of her friends tomorrow after work, Saturday getting on the road at about 10 am to head to Rosarito Beach, Mexico for 5 days.
    I may or may not hit the hotel gym just to get a pump, either way, nothing strenuous, this is a good time to rest/recover and let my forearms repair (hopefully).
