    This morning I completed Week 2 Workout A of 531 "Beginner Bastardo 531" (531 Cycle 23 2A) as follows:

    Superset:
    Squats 5-115, 5-140, 5-175, 5-205, 5-225, 5-255, 5-205, 5-205, 5-205, 5-205, 5-205
    Bench Press 5-115, 5-135, 5-137, 5-181, 5-206, 5-206, 5-206, 5-206, 5-206


    Assistance Circuit (Repeat 3 times):
    KB Swings 10 reps @ 35 Pounds
    OHP 5 reps @ 115 Pounds
    Chins 10 reps
    Decline Situps 12 reps


    Bodyweight: 214.2 Pounds (Down 6.4 pounds from 7/9

    Workout Duration: 49:00.10 minutes (with 1:00 rest between sets)

    Good workout and start to week 2 of Bastardo. I got a massage last night and the therapist worked out some scar tissue in my trap/left lat/shoulder blade area and that seemed to alleviate the nerve pain I've had on the left half of my upper body for the past month or so. Because of that my workout today felt great. I've got to get back in the habit of getting regular massages.

    I also need to get back in the habit of regular yoga. I've now found my favorite new yoga videos (to watch at least ):

    Thanks Trent. Yeah I feel that I'm gradually working myself back into a good place strengthwise. The reset I did going into this cycle was a good idea I think.

    Thanks Shawn. Yeah the workouts are feeling good so that's definitely a win. It's nice to keep the scale heading in the right direction too.

    I like the look of these workouts.

    Great scale drop over the last 2 days.
    Thanks Shane. I had a bit of bump on the scale this morning but for the week I'm still down over 6 pounds so that's good. I'm going to keep on keeping on with that and see where I wind up.

    I'm liking these workouts a lot. I like the flexibility on the accessories while still giving primary focus to the core lifts.

    Thanks Ron. Yeah, I've been focusing on keeping these workouts under an hour and so far that's been working very well.

    Excellent session yesterday Greg! Man, that is some serious volume on squat and bench. Especially at those weights. That never ceases to amaze me about your workouts. Good looking assistance work as well. Thanks for posting the yoga videos. I didn't watch them though as that is probably right when my wife would walk out and I'd get in trouble. Digging the Waylon quotes too.

    Thanks Trent. Yeah I'm liking the use of FSL/SSL weights of my work sets to get some extra volume into my workouts. It definitely seems to give me a good workout.

    Careful with the yoga vids...

    Good choice on the yoga vids Greg. I approve.

    Great to hear you got a massage and they were able to work out some scar tissue. I bet that felt marvelous. I agree with you, I really think that massages need to be part of our regular scheduled programming. Deload week is a great time for them.

    Nice squats and benching. Moving some great reps in heavy ranges man. Deads and incline BP today looked really good as well.

    I am going to be picking your brain over the next couple weeks to see how you feel about some of the templates I am looking at. I am planning to do a couple anchor templates next.

    Good workout today. Bench felt very good. The squats also felt good although the 20 repper really left me huffing and puffing. I definitely need to do those more often.

    Yeah Shane, the massage was great. Everytime I get one I tell myself I need to do that more often. It really helps get rid of nagging pains.

    Feel free to pick my brain and share your programming ideas. I've got a lot of ideas from Jim's new book and from his site...I just wish I had more time to try them all out.

    Great work the last two days Greg! Solid sets on your heavy stuff and, as usual, the accessory work really appeals to me. Love the body weight circuit you did today. I did mostly BW stuff in mine today too. Way to get it done man. It's great to see all of this great work going on in here!
