Default Thursday, 2/21

Lower Body Total = 10,500 lbs.

Deadlift = 5,100 lbs.

8 x 135
4 x 225
2 x 315
1 x 385

a) 3 x 5 x 340

Front Squat = 5,400 lbs.

8 x 125
a) 4 x 10 x 135

Incline Bench = 9,650 lbs.

10 x bar
8 x 115
4 x 150
2 x 160
1 x 185

a) 6 x 5 x (150/155/160/150/155/160)
b) 4 x 10 x 125

Woke up this morning and just knew I was going to DL 340 for 3 x 5. So yeah, I completely ditched the scheme I made up a few posts ago The warmup 385 (up from 365) was a moderate challenge: not hard enough to ruin my working sets but not so easy that I didn't have to focus. It felt like the right weight to use for my warmup singles for a while. The working sets were challenging, but in a good way. It feels like I'm working productively toward a peak, and then, hopefully, some PRs

My energy & stamina for pressing returned. Felt like I could've been in there forever with those sets. In hindsight, the weights I used for all my sets were a bit too light.

For the first time in a while, I woke up feeling refreshed Went to bed with a very full stomach -- take a look at meals 4 & 5, which were both close to bed time -- but it was completely empty and growling when I woke up
My muscles feel great, but my joints don't. Somewhere on the 1st page I mentioned a possible stress fracture in my right tibia. Well, it doesn't feel great today, and I think it's putting more stress on my right knee (which aches a bit). Nothing feels serious right now, so I'm taking the next 3 days off from training before it does. I'll resume on Monday.

It looks like I've gotten into a natural rhythm with frequency. This was completely unplanned -- I've been lifting intuitively, as you know -- but here is the number of workouts per week for the last several weeks:
4 Weeks ago: 4
3 Weeks ago: 3
2 Weeks ago: 5
Last Week: 4
This Week: 3
This pattern might mean that a 3-workout week + extra rest days = high productivity the following week. Let's put the theory to the test, then.
I also notice cycles of intake in my diet, like days when I can't get enough carbs and fat, days when all I want is protein, workout days where I feel completely stuffed with 2,500 cals. and rest days when I'm still starving after 4,000 cals. Not sure what it all means! Does the body know best, at least on a bulk?

Think it's good that you are listening to what it's trying to say. Too many guys don't and just stick to some random plan.

Totally...and the less you think about it, the better!


As long as you feel good and progress, riding the natural waves is the best way to go.

I planned to lift today, but my elbows are still sore and I want to begin going moderately heavy on bench. It's been months since I had a full week off, so I'll take one now. I'll lift this Friday and Saturday -- probably keep it relatively light -- and then go hard next week.
