Not a bad day. A little lacking in motivation, but still not bad.

Flat bench
135x15
185x12
225x10
255x5
275x3
225x8
135x10

Incline bench
135x8
155x8
155x8
155x8

Pull-ups
8x3

Dips
10x5

Cable press down
75x10x5

Pull-ups
6x5

My drive to lift has been waning a bit the closer I get to going home. I feel like I need something to work towards. I need a competition or a workout partner.

[quote=sleepingdog;320752]This is my second lifting log here. I came to the realization that the old log was just that, old news. There was a lot from my very beginnings of real lifting, and that's great. I feel like I'm on a new path now. I don't know if it's a better path yet, but that's part of the journey, finding out. My first go round actually started on my last deployment, so it's only fitting that my new beginning should start in a similar fashion. I hope that this time, when it's time to pack my bags and return to the real world, that I manage to hold onto the passion I'm feeling for lifting right now. I'm fortunate to have the privilege of, not just lifting, but lifting with such a support group behind me. I know that the people who follow me will be proud of what I do, I just hope that I can do something great for myself as well.

Today was the start of a "Starting Strength" style routine. I think the name holds a lot of weight with my current goals, as I'm coming back to the iron game after some serious slacking, and I feel a fresh start is in order. I had a great workout, and I'm seeing great potential already, so long as my gains are as linear as I hope they will be. Food will be my biggest hold up, as I've been finding it difficult to force feed myself the needed amounts of food without crossing the line between worthwhile/junk foods at the dining facility. Time is also sometimes a factor occasionally. There are days where I just cannot get out of work to lift, and after a 16 hour day, will do as much harm as good by lifting. I'll start this new log off right, with a link to the old log for any that are interested, and my first workout.



Force feeding is really difficult thing to do but there is no other way to do it. You have to do it in order you to grow.

I was in the gym today, lifting with a coworker, talking about goals. I realized that I'd love to get back to pulling off a 315x10 squat, and more after that. It reminded me that I hadn't posted here in a long time, and some self-reflection has shown me it's purely shame at the soft, lazy, slob I'd let myself become..

No excuses. It's just time to get back to paying the iron price for sloth. I'm pushing my frequency a little farther than I ought to, but so far the recovery is holding up most days. I'm using the Starting Strength template, running A workouts on Monday and Thursday, B workouts on Tuesday and Friday. I'm back on Active Duty now, so I'm doing a bit of unit PT mixed in there.

8/15/16
Squat
45 x 5
45 x 5
120 x 5
185 x 3
245 x 2
310 x 5 x 3

Bench
45 x 5
45 x 5
100 x 5
140 x 3
180 x 2
205 x 5 x 3
255 x 3
285 x 1

Deadlift
130 x 5
130 x 5
200 x 3
280 x 2
335 x 5
365 x 5
385 x 3
405 x 1

I deviated slightly by adding a couple heavy sets to the end of my bench and deads, knowing that I'm not doing again til Thursday. It felt really good too. Next Monday I may see if there's a 300 x 1 in the tank on the bench. The deads felt good, but I'm well aware of some lower back rounding. I need to do some serious work on form and strengthening my posterior chain.

As I close this entry out, it occurs to me that I owe an apology to all those who were supportive as hell of this log in the past, and I just walked away when life got distracting. I hope I can amend that by putting in work and sticking to it.

Still feeling pretty good after the weekend, so I went for a heavy single on squats. That was the 365 that turned into 3 easy reps, so I went up a bit and tried again. 385 was still pretty easy, so I went for broke and tried 405. Form fell apart a little, but not so much that was concerned with injury. That's definitely my max right now though.
OHP just doesn't seem to be progressing. I can't nail down if it's my form, or if I just need to keep pressing until I'm stronger in this lift. It feels "right", and I'm feeling consistent, just no progress in strength.
Power cleans are my kryptonite. I know for a fact I'm screwing the pooch on these, and not getting the full benefits of doing them. I'm not going to quit them, but I can't seem to coach myself into doing them without it being half upright row half clean. I'd really like to see myself in the 200s on this lift. More YouTube and practice I suppose.
