The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Thanks everyone.

I've come to the realization that I'm being too lazy in the gym. I wonder if this is what Lilly meant,instead of two max effort days a week like with Westside,your more aggressive with the Cube. Any way you look at it,I'm disapointed in myself.

Deadlift hasn't moved in months.

I'm sick of my fail bench session a couple weeks ago. My plan is to do 2-4 singles for a while on max effort days,than in a month or two go for 10-15lb PRs. I want a 405 squat,315 bench and 450 dead this year.

I wonder if steady income would ease some stress and let me gain momentum in the gym. Hmm. So many jobs to do online,but I rarely have access to a regular computer. Just my phone. I suppose I should delve into exactly what I can accomplish from my phone. Rant over.

My opinion, so feel free to tell me to go jump in a lake . Seems that you ARE getting stronger, but you also seem to change your routine often. Also your focus says you want better numbers in the big three but your doing all kinds of different lifts. This is challenging your body, but I think it's wearing you thin . Your a strong guy with big goals, short and long term. I have no doubt you'll get everything figured out and you'll be smashing everything in sight very soon! Stay strong Ben, we're behind you!!!!

Hunter's helping you out...

it's either "stick to the plan with minor tweaks" or, if you're bored/burnt out, "scrap it all and go for something new."

I think the positive is that you have clear goals, are willing to objectively assess your performance and then attack! Keep in mind, you've hit some really good strength markers at a young age. A lot of the progress you seek just comes with time and consistency.

Do you think the slow down is something outside the gym? You mention income. Stress can definitely steal some focus. How are the other variables? Food, sleep, conditioning and interests other than the gym?

When was the last time you took a week off? I'm realizing deloads and little breaks are critical to my continuing success. You probably know about accumulating fatigue and that a break is often needed for strength to show through.

Before the lengthy talky talky,an overview of what i did tonight.

Cleans did some at 155lbs since i repeatedly failed 185.Its a good fun movement,but i dont think its worth prioritizing.

Leg press,leg curls,dumbell and barbell overhead pressing.I wanna deadlift.

Beautiful words. I see what you mean,i need more focus on powerlifting,since that is my goal.I have switched programs a couple times recently,one i even sent to the big guy who probably shook his head when he saw it.

First,thanks for the input.

Food is just all over the charts.Im getting calories no doubt,but most days less than 200 grams protein.I eat alot of nuts...

Sleep sucks,probably because my mind is going nonstop all the time.I saw a woman today,who happens to be a golddigger.Shes on her 3rd guy after dealing with me. Im on my feet a good bit,walk alot.Im still fat,see above.

Interests outside the gym,that is a good point.Stress has pushed alot of my old loves away.I really want to get back into cars.Im telling ya,i know nothing these days is secure but some steady income would sure help.Money can buy happiness to a degree.I want to get into one or two marketing companies some friends are doing,but my parents,mostly mother,is against anything outside of plain ol day in day out labor.Which i would be fine with if anyone would give me a chance.

I took a week off last october to go on vacation.I really hate doing that,because the gym is my stress relief.

This one, you, and only you, have direct control over...may take some effort, but it's worth the investment. However, some of the other stuff is more likely the culprit.

Sleep is half the equation. We grow and get stronger during the rest cycle. The training is only the stimulus. Food, rest and stress are the main issues that dictate the response. If you have to, try melatonin or even diphenhydramine HCL (the sleep aid in Advil Pm, etc. that they sell without the pain killers). I get mine at Target. I'm not a chem supps guy but when I need to sleep, one of those does the trick. At your BW, try 2-3. Just a suggestion.

You may need to be clever or start small, but start right now making life about the things you enjoy. It's not irresponsible to have fun...it's critical. You're so young...plan a life that is fulfilling and fulfill it!

Sadly, it is true. My mom always says, "Money can't buy happiness, but neither does poverty." You need a balance. It takes time to get your financial feet under you squarely. Like all other choices in life, pursue what you want. Measure the risks and the reward and move wisely. If you're under your mom's roof, respect her wishes...that builds character (which I already know you have in spades) and it builds the motivation you'll need to take off on your own.

If you don't want to, that's fine. Just decide if you need to and decide based on facts and not feelings.

Look, no one here (especially me) will give you the best advice....you're a smart, thoughtful and hard-working guy. The best plans for you are already in your head...you just have to dig them out and make some choices. You will empower yourself. You don't need anyone else to be successful....we all just need someone to kick us in the pants once in a while.

Remember, you have no enemies, only teachers!

Words can never fully describe my appreciation for the nonstop teaching and encouragement.

Leave the past behind us,your words reminded me of a song im gonna post below.

Get some sleep,have fun and keep my head on straight.

Thanks JD!
