Thanks fellas! Snappy 315's does make me feel pretty good, that was my original goal when I first started to lift. I consider that my 365 number for squats. I can hit it any day I want and five days in a row if I feel like it. Now just a matter of inching that number on up.

Now that said, it looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue! Holy Moly. Wife had to take a business trip to Seattle for the week and juggling kids, camps, swimming pool, food, baths and bed 24/7 pretty much did me in. Next thing I know a week was gone and I had lifted nothing except I flipped the tire twice to show off.

However mostly normal service to resume for the next few weeks at least (she has another trip to Seattle in middle of August, bitter). However, I realize I need to cut these workouts down to 60 min a day, so I taking my 3 days and spreading them out to 4, and making rest times 3 min or less to keep the total time to 60 min or less.

Haha. I can safely say, in terms of conditioning, I don't think I'm doing all that well! I think I have just been abusing rest times!! Keeping them to 3 min or less rocked my world today! Totally kicked my ass!

Warmups: hip an leg stretch, jump rope

Complex (takes less time than working up with cleans): 5 Stiffleg, 5 rows, 5 cleans, 5 front squat, 5 OHP, 5 squat, 5 GMs:
1 round with 95 (whew! gonna work that up to 3 sets, then add weight)

Squat:
315x 1
245x 10, 6, 5 (reps made, add weight)

Sumo:
220x 9, 7, 5 (reps made, add weight)

Empty Sled pushes:
2x 25 yds (calf was tightening up, and I was dog tired anyway)

Some stretching to finish.

So, Upper tomorrow and we'll see how it goes. I should be able to get online tonite and catch up with you all. Sorry I have been lax with your logs lately.

Good work Mike! Keeping control on the rest times will surely up your conditioning level some. I have to force myself to take 3-4 minutes for my big lifts, or I'll be back under the bar in 2 Hope the family life slows down for you a bit

Thanks fellas. Tom, JT I'm pleased with the squats too. I worked out once in 14 days and was able to come back and bang those reps out with short rest times, so that's good stuff. I want to get that daily max up to 350 or so, then I'll be right pleased.

Thanks JD, Hunter, KD. Hopefully, I adapt to this soon! All of a sudden two workouts in a row, I'm toast today! Still, got mostly everything done and I feel good about my athleticism heading in the right direction. Family stuff still going to hammer me though. Wife's family of locust descends again soon. But I am determined to get my work in no matter what! I know famous last words.

Bit of a mishmash today as I figure out how I want this to work.

warmups: shoulder stuff and some rowing

Pushups: 10, 10
ss w/ Chinups: 3, 8 (2nd set assisted obviously)

Bench:
255x 1 pause (daily max)
210x 7, 7, 6 (reps made barely, add weight)

BB Row, with belt to save low back:
165x 8, 6, 4 (just ran out of gas, stay at this weight and see if I adapt to shorter rests)

Dips: 8, 5, 5
ss w/ 50 yd. hill "sprints" Haha. I was going fast as I could, but "sprints" is perhaps a stretch.

Some stretching and that's it.

Yesterday hammered me, so it's to be expected today would be a bit less than my normal level. Still, got all the bench reps and rows will come along I think. That is a weak area for sure though.

I like the dips and sprint combo. As many dips as possible then immediately run, walk back, 2 min rest and go again. First round was shocking, but runs got better after that.

I think this is really going to blast some fat. And that's a big goal right now. Complexes to start and sled to finish on leg days, then pushup/chins to start, and Dips and sprints or sled to finish on Upper days.

I lot to adapt to, but I am easing into it even though it maybe doesn't seem like it.

Anyway, there you go. Lifts onward and upward, but fat downward!
