(B) Squat + Legs :: 531 Cycle 2 Week 3

Mood: Pretty good.

Getting an handing on my emotions instead of my emotions hijacking my brain.

Let me make this point really quick: if you are on meds for any type of mental disorder, STAY ON YOUR MEDS. Do not let that shit reset. It takes your brain a while to get readjusted once you do get back on them.

Take the time right now to call your doctor to get your prescription re-upped. Borrow money to get your meds. Do whatever it takes.

This is me preaching to myself. Last night, my emotions almost hijacked me but it didn’t. It was only by the grace of God that I was able to get out from underneath that crushing weight.

Here’s the training:

Training:

Warm-ups
Squat:
  • 3×5 40%, 50%, 60%
Sets
Squat:
  • 5 reps 75% 225#
  • 0 reps 85% FAILED
  • 0 reps 95% FAILED
Big But Boring
  • Seated Leg Curls 5×10 150#
  • Leg Extensions 5×10 150#

Results: Strugggglluggging

So I made the stupid mistake of working on my depth in the middle of my working set (as oppose to my Warmup or Accessory sets). I switched to Box Squats and went for depth. The depth was lower than what I am used to. I went to “catch” the weight and I responded with my lower back (while the weights were properly high on my scapula). Hence, my spinal erectors are really friggin sore and I couldn’t do another Squat to save my life.

So I finished the Leg Day by Supersetting Seated Curls (for Hammies) and Leg Extensions for focusing on the Quads.

By setting both to 150#, that actually maxed out the Seated Curls. I decided my Hamstrings are super strong but not super big. I have to now pay attention to Hamstring dominate ways of Squatting and what not.

(A) Bench + Chest :: 531 Cycle 2 Week 3

  • 3×5 40%, 50%, 60%
Sets

  • 3 reps 85% 160#

Results: MONSTEROUS!

AWWWWW YIIIIISSS, bitches!
AWWWWW YIIIIISSS, bitches!

So, I thought I could do both BB and DB for Incline Bench. Incline BB on a Smith Machine exposed a weakness in my left arm like I couldn’t complete the last rep of the last set. But when I went to Incline DB, I had nothing.

It escaped me at the moment but when I walked out of the gym, I realized I should have done Close Grip Incline and maybe drop it 5-10lbs, in order to get some assistance with the push i.e. pushing the weights together and up.

I think I am going to include BB with my DB and try to hit 50% on both for 5×10.

But I am dang happy with the PR.

Supplements: Insane Labz Psychotic Pre-workout taken 30 minutes prior to working out. (I was still feeling the effects long after the dosage. I might take this 45-60 minutes before training next time.
