I been down to a quarter tank of gas since monday and had to conserve it just to get to work and back. Finally got paid today so I could hit the gym.

then he starts going on about I don't have to lift heavy and how I can do higher reps, different training techniques and hack squats. I'm thinking, why the hell would I wanna do that? I told him I appreciate the ideas and I'll try it out sometime, but for now I'm training for strength.

Even a couple weeks ago, a co-worker who happens to go to the gym I joined. Was trying to say I don't have to lift heavy and I can get big with higher reps and its okay to switch up my routine..


People are scared of heavy weight. Avoid these black holes of mediocrity.

Great log, always fun to see somebody starting from scratch

Thanks for the support guys!

Don't mean to sound like a broken record, but havent been able to maintain my consistency the last two weeks, personal & financial reasons.. So I kept things pretty simple today just to get in the groove again, not trying to back pedal. Going to really start focusing on my Bench and OHP's - progression and intensity.

Oh and once again, the guy at work wants to preach his "knowledge" to me. This time he says I should change my program every week to shock my muscles and not plateau..

Okay enough about me!

Good to see you got one in WB. Keep charging hard. As long as you are making some progress it's all good. The destination will come.
