Mood: Strong. I have been introduced to Greyskull LP.¬† Honestly, if I had known about this before SL, I would have started on it. Here’s what I love about it: AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) – Your last set is as many sets as you can do before technical failure. (If I you are […]

Squats, Bench, Rows, Biceps (A) :: Stronglifts 5×5 Week 5

Mood: Deload or not deload, that is the question. After two not-as-awesome training days this week, I contemplating deloading or even cutting my Squats down to 3×5. But a friend reminded that I am not failing on the Main lifts. So keep going. And going I shall. Here’s the workout: Warm-ups: Squats 45# 2×5; 95# […]

Squats, OHP, Deadlifts (B) :: Stronglifts 5×5 Week 5

Mood: Not my strongest. I went in just wiped out. Usually, when that happens, I get a boost just walking into the gym. But the energy wasn’t there. I had to end up cutting back on warmups and accessory lifts. But I got my Mains in. Here’s the workout: Warm-ups: Squats 45# 2×5; 95#x5; 125#x3 […]

Squats, Bench, Rows, Biceps (A) :: Stronglifts 5×5 Week 5

Mood: Sleepy. But that’s why God made preworkout. I had a feeling that my workout was going to be cut short so I cut out the Barbell Row. No tears were lost. I slept well that night. This Bubs woke up right after my 3rd Kroc Row set. I’m slain. Seriously, this is way too […]

Squats, OHP, Deadlifts (B) :: Stronglifts 5×5 Week 4

Mood: Intrigued. Last Wednesday, I did my usually 3×5 Deadlifts (because I am not going to be restricted to just one). Then the next day, I felt my lats. Then that “feeling” spread all over my lats. Some would call it pain. I don’t think it was pain. I think it was because I seriously […]

Squats, Bench, Rows, Biceps (A) :: Stronglifts 5×5 Week 3

Mood: Super tough. After the last two training days of super-awesomeness, this one was a struggle. One, I can feel my lats. So anything to do with the lower back (which is everything) could be felt in the lower back. I even skipped Lat Pulls because I didn’t “want” to over do it. In hindsight, […]
