Today's bodyweight- 204.8

Still learning. Yesterday was the first day I didn't fast, and even though I stayed under my carb limit the increased intake combined with a lack of fiber means there's quite a bit of food in me still.

I'll be fasting for a little while this morning, then do my best to limit my intake later in the day.

One issue I'm having is that my wife, being pregnant, has inconsistent hunger levels. Yesterday she had just eaten a snack, and I said I wanted to go get some wings for myself. She said she was hungry too, so we got 20 wings.

She ate 1.

That was really annoying, because of course once her snack settled she wasn't hungry anymore, and I've always had issues when there is food right in front of me. Too much accesability is the reason I had weight issues when I was younger, which is why I like fasting at work. I can control the fact that there is no food there.

Anyways, instead of eating 10 wings as planned, I ate 18.

No biggie.

I have this issue with food. We never had a lot of extras around as a child, and now as an adult if it's there, I eat it.

After resting yesterday and overeating a bit, I had to bring it hard today to make sure I stay on the right track.

Front squats-
45x5
95x5
135x5
165x3
185x3
205x2
("time to set the safety bars and see just how many I can do.")
205x6 PR

Single leg curl-
15x15
30x15

Calf press on leg press machine-
200x10
290x10
380x5
470x5
520x5

Dumbell hang clean and press-
35x15
50x8
60x6

BTN overhead press-
45x35

Cheating barbell curls-
EZcurl bar+50x29

Superset
1. Cheating dumbell hammer curls
2. Cheating lateral raises
3. Cheating upright rows
1. 55x5
2. 35x7
3. 45x27
1. 50x4
2. 30x6
3. 45x22


I will be using cheating movement far more often! Today I decided to say screw form and just throw some serious weights around. I felt great about the front squats, which were done as low as I can possibly go (I literally went untill my hamstrings touched my calves), then after that it was all about going as hard as possible.

People who say you have to stick to good form all the time have no clue how much you can stimulate your muscles by just grabbing heavy weights and throwing them around as many times as possible. I will be training like this far more often now that I'm big enough and lean enough that no one would dare try to tell me I'm doing something wrong. I learned today why we always see bodybuilders "cheating" their way through workouts.

I'll also be using heavy front squats more often. I've never pushed myself like that on them and my legs felt amazing.

This workout gets a big A from me.

Afterwards it was off to Subway for a 6", which gives me right at 50g of carbs.

Thanks swede!

Next week I'll go even heavier and see what I can do. I should be able to do a triple with 225 with no issue.

Congrats on that front squat. I need to teach you the bulldozer side lateral. It's a form of cheating and allow s much more weight.
