Until further notice, I will be running the M.A.S.S. System from the Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding. The program is about 3 months long and I will complete it and see if I like it enough to repeat it. I know it is meant for adding mass and I am currently cutting, but a set program will help me see the progression in the weight that I am using and hopefully I will add a little muscle during this cut.

Pull Day #1

Deadlifts
225 X 6
225 X 6
225 X 2 (10 second static hold on each rep)

BB Rows
135 X 8
155 X 8

DB Rows
80 X 8

Lat Pull Downs
130 X 8

Notes
Good workout today. Just the very basics. All the weight felt good and I plan on moving all the weight up next week. I hope I see steady progression in weight while on the program while at the same time watching the weight on the scale go down. Only time will tell. Until then, I will bust it every day.

It is pretty much the heavy basics. Nothing fancy. Just get the job one.

This workout was a killer. I was feeling after the first 2 exercises. I gave it my all on every set and by the end my body was screaming at me. It felt like a ton of volume and I liked the change from just working one body part. No other way to sum this up than by saying it was an awesome workout.

Today's workout was alright at best. Squats were not my friend. My knee is hurting and 225 felt like a ton of weight. Besides that, everything was good. But the squats ruined it for me.
