Title basically describes what my lifting and eating has been like ever since i started 45 years ago.
This log is meant to help me leave that behind me and stay consistent with both lifting and eating to get big/strong.
routine:
34 days/week:
squat (olympic): 1 top set + some back off sets
bench: 1 top set + some back off sets
pullupssupersetted withghetto ghr
every once in awhile:
deadlift: 1 top set + some back off sets
whatever i want to do/feel i should be doing
That's it, i guess.

Was feeling pretty sleepy/weak going in to this workout, form was off on both the squat and bench top set, i still PR'd on both though, so i guess i must really be getting stronger. I should go to bed earlier though, to avoid this kinda stuff in the future

Yeah, as I noticed it can be really detrimental to training...
anyway, I've decided i'm starting sheiko 29 tomorrow, have a couple of notes to add to that decision (mainly aimed at myself)
I need something that tells me what to do, in order for me not to fuk up, sheiko seems perfect for that, as it tells you exactly what to do
I'll probably be doing sheiko routines (likely a lot of 29 and 37) for a good while, if I like it (mainly because of the reason above)
I will be upping training maxes if I feel it's appropriate (when working sets feel rather easy for at least a couple of workouts in a row)
I am excite!

comments: Hurt my right shoulder a little on the pause deads, i'm guessing it was due to pulling with bent arms (guess i should focus more on form during these), so i was careful with it for the rest of the workout. Guessing i pulled something in my delt a little bit, will likely be gone by monday so no worries

comments:
stretched the full squat position before squatting, helped a ton
heels at hip width is a good width for me on squats (moved them in this close on the very last set of squats, felt better and easier than all the others)
benching was ok, nothing crazy
been thinking about what i wanna do after these 4 weeks, will probably do #37 while upping squat and dead max 10kg and upping bench max 5kg
