Before we begin........
Here is my Plasmagen Nitrate log, that I am transferring from.
Progress I made.....
I'm going into a deload week with the 5-3-1 Method.
I'm also taking a break from any sponsored logs, so I will devote myself 100% to my training & this journal.
The focus for the next two training cycles, other than strength, (strength is #1) will be conditioning. I also want to focus on bodyweighted exercises - Pull ups (being mentored by Harry Selkow ATM), Push ups, Dips, etc.
Also, looking to strengthen my hips. I had Chris Clark, over at Elitefts critique my deadlift form....and this is what he said.....
"Hip are weak. You need to sit back farther and get the shoulders back more. Better arch with shoulder blades retracted, try turning your toes out a tiny bit and try to drive you feet through the floor. Pull sumo ultra wide sumo pulls, some ultra wide low box squats and get the hip strngth up."
My training has now become heavily influenced by Westside and the guys over at Elite. So if you see some unconventional things in here or me talking about Elite, don't be surprised.
I'm not doing this to look good. I believe that I have a long ways to go before I can worry about "back thickness or quad sweep".

**Other random samples
I don't really keep track. I eat when I'm hungry. I try to keep it clean. I go by the mirror. I'll weigh myself occasionally. I try to drink a gallon or more of water a day + 1/2 gal or more of whole milk.
**Let's get things started, shall we? First workout of deload week comes Monday.**
