Thanks syn.

Had a long stressful, shitty day at work today. Had a big project dumped in my lap because someone kept making BS excuses why he couldn't get anything done.

And I didn't get a chance to eat anything before i went to the gym and my energy level was pretty low, but I decided to do what i could. It wasn't a bad workout but i wish i could have done more.

Default Training Update

I'm going to tweak my training just a little. I've been doing standing press 2 times a week hoping it would improve but i think its having the opposite affect. I was treating it like a lesser movement but I've come to realize the standing press is actually more difficult then bench press. So I'm going to cut it down to just 1 day a week but make it the only press for that day and really focus pushing it as hard as i can.

I think I'll do a mix of heavy(er) and lite sets. Do the 3x5 and then drop the weight and do 3-4 sets of 8-10. I believe that's a better layout with it being the only press on that day. IMO, you cant beat the crap out of your shoulders everyday like you can legs.

Yep. I think that's smart Casey. Pay attention to everything just like you did shoulders as you progress. Its the right move.

Thanks Sandbox, If I've learned anything from training, its that you have to listen to your body.

Tried something different, I trained this morning instead of wait till after work. Felt good,had plenty of energy. I woke up at 3am, wide awake, was gonna watch TV but remembered, hey... the gym opens at 5am, so what the heck. Go lift! Luckily i live very close to the gym and i think I'll make it a habit to workout early. Besides... since i started eating low carb/high protein, I've got way more energy.
