workout looks rough, nice job :)

thanks bro

I took about a 5 week break from the gym recently due to laziness and am finishing up my 3rd week of getting back into the routine

it seems if a person takes 5 weeks off, it takes them 5 weeks in the gym to get back from where they left off

I guess soreness, energy, exhaustion are all things that have become noticeable to me after a 5 week break from the gym. Anyways, 3 weeks back into the routine, starting to get my feet back on the ground. Energy levels are increasing and soreness is going away

thanks for posting bro

Didn't go to the gym today, but I did a few exercises at my apartment. Will hit the gym tomorrow

It is my 32nd birthday today, but I feel pretty good to be 32

I think the weightlifting makes me look and feel alot younger than I am, but I guess we all feel we look younger than we are.

Been training pretty steady for 2 years now, and I should be ripped to shreds, but I haven't been able to give up the bad foods, and BF% is still high. On a positive note, I am stronger than I have ever been in my life and made alot of progress with weightlifting over the last 2 years. But the diet is the key, and it is something I am going to get dialed in. I am ready to become more disiplined. I would like to hit 165 pounds by the time I am 33.

I made a few birthday resolutions
---eat more good fats and less bad fats
---post diet daily in my journal to keep myself in check
---eat more complex carbs and fewer simple carbs
---do more cardio
---reduce diet soda intake
---drink more water

Today's Workout:

Wide Grip Pullups(Bodyweight)
I take a break or two in the middle of each of these pullup sets
for instance, I do 6 straight pullups, then 5 more 30 seconds later, then 4 more 60 seconds after that...maybe one day I will be able to get 15 without a break

Going to hit the gym this afternoon:

I usually eat a whole wheat pizza on Saturday's and Sunday's a few hours prior to my workout. It gives me one hell of an energy boost(carb loading) for my 2 hour weightlifting session in the gym. I also drink several diet sodas. The caffeine gets my energy pumping. My plan will be only to drink diet sodas on the weekends when I hit the weights and the homemade pizzas will be the only cheats, which I will eat on Saturday's and Sundays only. Monday-Friday I will focus on eating very clean and split my calories into 5-6 meals.

My general diet strategy is to eat under 3000 calories on lifting days(Saturday and Sunday) and eat under 2000 calories on cardio days(Monday-Friday)

Today's Diet:

Total: 2925 calories
Fat: 62 grams 19%
Sat: 27 grams 8%
Poly: 13 grams 4%
Mono: 18 grams 6%
Carbs: 391 grams 48%

Workout routine wasn't too good this week. Wasn't able to workout chest or arms since I didn't make it to the gym yesterday. Today is normally my chest and arm day, but I chose squats and standing shoulder presses, since these are the most effective exercises in bodybuilding and I would rather skip chest and arms than skip squats and standing presses.

Both triceps were tight through my whole workout today, so I couldn't go too heavy with the standing shoulder press. Just didn't seem to be in the groove today, so I cut the workout short, and didn't finish everything as planned. 275 pounds seemed heavy as hell, heavier than usual.

Next weekend will be better
