Haha, thanks jd. I wouldn't say big numbers yet, but they are getting bigger!

1/8/2013
Bench press
warm up
185x5
215x5
215x5
215x5
215x5
215x5 - PR - solid, felt great

Had a spotter to lift off for me, so I could stay tight and made the difference in getting my 5x5 with this weight! I'm getting excited, slowly creeping up to 2 plates for my 5x5...

1/14/2013
Squats
warm up
225x5
275x5
275x5
275x5
375x3 - heavy walkout with partial squat like 1/4 rep

Shrugs - with straps
305x10
305x10
305x10

I got my new belt today and so was anxious to try it out - a 13mm single prong Inzer. Excellent quality. Man does a belt help in coming out of the hole without GMing the lift.

I'm a little scared. My wife has us on a 1400-1600 menu daily. It's frequent small portion stuff. 3 oz of meat or fish or chicken with some sort of veggie 3x a day and a small spinach salad and grilled veggies and 4 eggs. No other calories. I've actually stuck with this for 8 days now and am down 3-4 lbs, but more importantly i'm noticing more room around waist in my jeans. Bad thing is my squat strength was down, the squats felt good and in form and my groove was on even. I'll just keep eating this way until she's done, who knows, it might become permanent. I sure feel good physically and mentally, just scared i'll lose strength.

Nice session...focused and effective!

I have a 2-prong Inzer...awesome belts!

What a great lady! That's a lot of effort!

You can always supplement some protein powder and grab some quick carbs before a workout if you notice any real drop in strength. For me, even just sipping a Gatorade during a workout can make a difference in performance (especially in the heat).

That's way low for a man. Be careful brother.

Yeah I went back and recounted what we're eating and it really is that low, the protein is roughly 140 grams which is also kinda low. The good thing is that it's good whole food. Bad thing is I could totally tell it affected my strengthlast night while squatting. That already includes 2 shakes so I'm gonna have to get some almonds and cashews snack on in between the 'meals'. Or let it ride for a month and see if my body adapts and I drop weight and still get stronger.

warm up 185x5 - pause reps
215x5
215x5
215x5
215x5
215x5 - PR again in bench! Best single set of 5, let alone best 5x5. I was shocked as I figured the low calories would've brought bench down as well. That's 2 weeks in a row with PR's in the bench workouts. Can't complain.

CGBP
185x7
185x6
185x5

Great strength today. I have no idea what gives but my bench felt STRONG. Didn't need a nudge for any reps or anything. I'm excited about this, especially with 2 weeks in a row of bombed squat workouts. Something positive to keep in my mind
