I smoked a whole chicken today, then I smoked a package of wings, then for good measure I threw some burgers on the left over fire. I did a pork shoulder and a package of chicken breasts last week. The only cool thing my dad ever taught me was how to cook on a grill.

In a few years I may actually try to start a small bbq restaurant. Most of them are terrible.

Speed squats tomorrow.

Squat speed day. This day was HARD. It took it out of me, and I didn't even do the whole planned workout.

Speed squats with bands-
45x10
add bands
45x5
135x5
185x5
245x3 (This was my planned weight, but it was too much with the bands.)
225x3
225x3
225x3
225x3
225x3
225x3
225x3

Front squats-
135x5
185x5
185x5

Barely got the 2 sets with 185 done. Starting to get really tired now.

Pause squats-
135x8
185x8
225x8

The plan was 225x8 for 2 sets, but I was about to pass out after the first set. I was just done. After all this I tried to do some GHRs, but I just couldn't do it. The pressure of the pads on my quads was just too painful. I decided to abandon the leg extensions and pullups, because my quads are completely fried and I'm still really sore in my lats from deadlifts 3 days ago.

The shear volume of squats today took its toll on me. During the last set of pause squats my right arm actually started to cramp up from getting under the bar over and over with my narrow grip/low bar hold.

I HATE front squats. I hate them so much. BUT, they didn't hurt my shoulder like they have in the past, and that's really awesome news. I barely got the 185 for 5. Hopefully that number will grow. All I know is that after front squats it felt powerful to go back to a back squat, even though it was pause squats (I hate those too).

Tomorrow will be my first day back to work, and a rest day from the gym. Saturday will be the bodybuilding day.

Bodyweight is up today- 226

It's because of the extra carbs I had yesterday. I ate way more than usual because I knew that recovering from my squat session would be tough. I'll do my best to make up for it by keeping my intake low today. It's going to be very interesting to see if I can stay below 230 when I start my cycle. I know for a fact that I could gain weight while on and it would be muscle. This would also help my lifts, so I'm going to have to really fight the temptation to gain. I need to work on relative strength for now, then later on I can gain weight if I decide to. I'm not nearly strong enough for my weight/size, and that needs to change before I think about going up in weight.

The goal is a recomp, and I have to keep that in mind. I'd really love to build a little muscle, lose a little fat, and gain a ton of strength. I'll have 10 weeks to make it happen.

I'm SO SORE. This is the first time in a really long time that I'm excited that today is a rest day, even if it sucks that I can't have any carbs at all. Everything aches. My quads are tender to the touch from hip to knee. My chest is still sore from 2 days ago. It all makes sense, but that makes it no less uncomfortable.

I've definitely been missing hardcore volume like this. Training is harder, longer, and more tedious, but that's ok. I'm chomping at the bit to get a needle in my ass and take things to the next level. Maybe then I'll be able to actually complete the all the sessions and get everything out of this program. Every time I cringe from the pain, I just imagine myself repping out squats with 4 plates on each side. Or throwing up a 315 bench like it's feathers. I imagine people walking by while I'm training, looking at each other and saying "Shit, that guys a beast!."

When I have those thoughts, it's all worth it.

Motivation like that helps make the weights feel liter and the workout feel easier than it really is.

Legs are a little better today. As in, I was able to get up off the bed without having to use my hands. Quads are still insanely sore, to the point where I've actually been a bit worried. I'm going to have to fade into this volume a bit more slowly. I had thought that I'd be able to do it as written straight away, but I was wrong.

No worries, I'll just pay more attention to how my body is reacting. Bodybuilding day today. I'm contemplating the idea of applying the same sort of crazy volume in my other days to my shoulders specifically. My OHP is still terribly weak, and I bet that if I bring it up it will reflect well in my bench. I also want big ass shoulders.

Bodybuilding day. Also, day 1 of my cycle! That's right, my stuff arrived today, so I loaded up a syringe and got some test in me. Now the waiting game starts. It's going to be a few weeks before I start to feel anything, which will give me 7-8 weeks of active test to get some results.

The last few weeks have been a test period for me to nail down my training and diet for the cycle, therefore nothing will change.

Here's how my bodybuilding day went-

Warm up, done with 2.5lb plates-
20 lateral raises
20 rotator cuff raises
20 bent over OHPs

Face pulls-
20x12
25x12
25x12

Seated military press-
45x12
95x10
95x10
115x10
135x5

ZERO pain on these, which is awesome news. This is the best my shoulder has felt since before my injury.

Underhand, wide grip cable rows-
3 sets of 10-15 reps. These were hard, because my legs are so sore that it actually kept me from doing what I normally could. Next time I'll use a normal grip.

Snatch grip high pulls-
75x10
95x10
115x10
115x10

Shrugs-
225x10
315x10
315x10
225x15
225x15

Triceps extensions-
25x10
50x10
50x10
55x10

Curls-
25x10
50x10
50x10
50x10

I went through the motions a bit today. I don't know if I've ever been this sore. I'm not sure if I'll even be ready for my next squat session Thursday. I'll have to play it by ear. Deadlifts Monday, if I'm up for it.
