So after re-thinking things I believe I'm going to try some intermittent fasting. Btb and brute gave me some help. Today has been pretty bad in terms of how I feel and how I see myself in the mirror so I'm hoping to change it with this.

I am still a bit overtrained/CNS is fried I can tell, I went heavier than I should have but it gave me a good baseline.

No stims for workout but this is what I got today:

Bench - 135, 155, 185, 205x8 - Shoulder still tender, I don't know I seem to be getting worse at pressing. Last couple reps barely made it. I think it's due to CNS fried but I'll see.

Close Grip Bench - 95, 135, 145, 155x8 - went reasonably well, I accidentally went from 95 to 135 I was going to do 115 but bleh .

BB Rows - 135, 165, 185, 205x8 - would like to try to keep bb rows at or heavier than bench since my back needs to catch up.

Face Pulls - 60, 70, 80, 90x8

Pull Downs - 130, 140, 150, 160x8

DB Incline - 45 - Shoulder tender so I didn't keep going

Tried Flat DB Bench - 55, 65x8.. The flats are so high I can't touch ground and was hella unstable.

Overall I wasn't real happy with my performance but the 8s are making extreme pump and even with crappy pressing today (the last couple reps on bench almost didn't make it) I am going to feel it tomorrow.

Way to keep going!

Training is worth much if you can't recover or get hurt. Play it smart and keep it light for a minute.

Today was a wash but I had a migraine that I almost threw up on. Time wise I ate about 5 hrs early but if it weren't for headache I could have gone til time I needed to.

Thanks everyone for kind words. Tomorrow I'm going to tape some deads/light deads to try to help explain the way I do form, I'll have to try to voice over since my gym is.. weird.

Wed 2/27/13:

Was stupid and did too much, still sick, sore etc...

Conventional DL 225, 225, 225x8
Sumo DL 225, 225, 225x8
Mil Press 95, 115, 115, 115x8
Face Pulls 60, 70, 80, 90, 100x8 (these felt good and helped my shoulder that's been hurting

Other than doing too much at the gym and not sleeping for 22 hours (now), I did get a pretty sweet article out, let me know what you guys think: Cutty Strength – Muscle Building Program for Beginners

You'll be back up and full power soon!

The article is a nice primer!
Hopefully, new lifters hear the message that basic compounds + progressive overload = win!
