    Up to 140 next time.

    Incline Cable Flyes 4x8-12
    All sets @ 40lbs

    Berto Skullcrusher 3x12
    All sets with 30lbs

    Solid workout and solid pump. Always love this part of the reverse diet where everything is filling back out and you're slowly losing the flat look that comes with cutting. Started using creatine again so expecting weight jump upwards by maybe 2-4lbs over the next few days.

    Ideally, I'll keep my surplus 80% of the time over the next 2 years. I want to maintain it a minimum of 6 months, cut 1 month. Rinse and repeat. That's the plan unless body fat rises too fast. I feel like keeping cardio my cardio in during the off season will help with my nutrient partitioning and keeping fat gain minimal though. Once again, just trying new methods and seeing what works best for me.

    Set 3: 185x10

    **weak as hell on these... always have been.

    HIIT 6 rounds

    Overall, I love the feeling of separating quad and ham days when it comes to legs. Usually I'd kill quads then feel unexcited and unmotivated to train hamstrings. Now that I have a day where I emphasize one group over the other but still include movements that hit both, I feel much better and can really hammer both groups. For me this is the best of both worlds.

    Set 1: 140x15
    Set 2: 140x15
    Set 3: 150x12

    ***In some logs I'll have numbers as high as 250 on these. That's only because the gym I go to has 2 different machines and their weights are drastically different.

    DB Preacher Curl 3x8,8,8 3 second squeeze at top
    All sets with 25b DB for 8

    Hammer Curls 3x12-15
    Sets 1-2: 25x15
    Set 3: 30x15

    Berto Curls 3x15
    All sets with 50.

    MISC: Body weight has gone from a depleted 155-156 to a healthier 160-161 now. I was initially surprised at the jump but I'm still looking as lean as I did but fuller now. Most likely attributed to glycogen stores filling back up then the fact that I started creatine about 4-5 days ago. On the other side of things, I'm still not 100% "normal" feeling yet but I think that should return as I continue the semi aggressive increases. Libido is still on the lower end and I'm still hungry most of the time but overall feeling better than I did. Calories are now 2,015 210C/170P/55F. I'm hoping to jump those to 230C/170P/55F in the second half of this week. There's a certain high you feel when you see new details while cutting that I do miss, but it's time to make improvements in this off-season and get some quality gains.

    Morning weigh in: 161.0.

    Taking today off from the gym to focus on a few things like homework and getting apartment stuff done. Will be moving in about a month and my friend who I'm moving with is flying in Saturday so I'm doing my best to get prepared. If I can finish everything early I plan on hitting the gym for a quad focused leg workout.

    MISC: Holy. Freakin. Sh!t. At TWD last night. Not sure how many people on here watch it but last nights episode was borderline over the top. I'm usually never affected by movies or TV shows or anything of that matter, but last nights episode was probably equivalent to some sick snuff film. Not sure how I feel overall about it but it left a bad taste in my mouth for sure.

    I feel like the calorie jump is justified, dude. Yeah, maintaining conditioning looks cool and may be satisfying, but if you're hungry as hell/are having hormonal issues because of it, that's when things may need to get a bit more aggressive. Actually having to remember this myself. Food-focused tendencies have been a bitch for me lately. Getting yourself to a range where your body is happy and healthy would probably be a wise decision. That being said, you could gain extremely slowly on those macros...which wouldn't be too surprising to me, considering that your deficit seemed rather harsh at the end of the cut.

    Haha we'll find out how I'm doing on these macros soon enough.. As long as I don't gain too fast, I'll be happy. I really want to get my cals to 3000+ but I also really don't want to see my body weight anywhere north of 175 this off-season. If I take things at the right pace, I feel like it'll be 8+ months before that actually happens though, plenty of time to build metabolic capacity. Once 175 hits I'll mini cut back down to 165 unless my body composition is acceptable at that weight. I feel like with being 5'8 and natural, my weight shouldn't be too far north of 180. Usually guys at my height and a lean 180 are super experienced and have been in the game for a while and have a helluva lot of mass. I fit neither of those criteria so keeping my weight on the lower end will be my best option until I'm older and more experienced.

    Off day from the gym today, completely. Had a few assignments I had to get done and then worked a double, both times as the only waiter in the restaurant so it's safe to say I'm beat. All that walking was probably good for my DOMS though. Got some blood flowing to my legs and hopefully pushed some lactic acid out.

    Had a strange 164 weigh in this morning after actually eating lower than normal cals yesterday. I know I haven't gained 3lbs of pure fat, but still an uncomfortable weigh in. I'll keep things monitored. Had a pretty stressful day yesterday after working a double, both times being the only waiter in the restaurant as well as he only person available for customer service. I was answering the phone, seating and taking care of my own tables, taking care of the window for people who had carryout orders, manning the cash register, and also making sure the buffet and salad bar was always stocked. All this while having 6+ tables to take care of along with 2 large groups. Between shifts I was writing a paper and going to class. Overall a pretty stressful day so I'm hoping that was the cause of this weigh in.

    Morning weigh in: 162.0. Liking this a bit better. Wanting to stay in the 162-164 range for the rest of October and most of November. Hopefully I'll be able to manage this on my current macros. We'll see!

    Chest/Triceps

    Weighted Dips 4x12,10,8,6
    All sets with BW+25

    Pec Deck 4x15
    All sets with 130

    One arm press down 3x15
    All sets with 50

    Today was a morning workout and for some reason or another morning workouts have been a struggle for me. Never have liked them. One thing I'm really trying to take to heart though is do my best to keep negative emotions out of the equation. Or not so much keep them out of the equation as much as just accept that they're there and do my best to hit the numbers I'm shooting for. A workout where you don't feel as motivated but still get things done is more productive than a workout where you're super motivated to the point where you train stupidly such as using loose form and such. All in all though, just one big drop in a hopefully giant bucket.

    All sets with 36 (weak as fukkkkkkkk on these. Always have been.)

    Overall my leg strength is skyrocketing since I've been training them again. Last week I did 185x10 on low bar squats and struggled... This week it was like nothing. Weight will hopefully stabilize on these cals. I'm feeling 1000000x better on 2400 cals and it's showing everywhere in my life. Cheers to what will hopefully be a super successful off-season until 2018.

    Morning weigh in: 161.4. Off day today. Originally planned on hitting back, traps, biceps, but with having a hamstring dominant day yesterday I decided to take a day off to let my erectors recover. Not going into detail but having some personal things going on outside the gym today that wouldn't have allowed me to make it anyways. Back to the routine tomorrow.

    Morning weigh in: 161.4. Initially after the large calorie jump I was hitting 163-164's, but back down to the 161's now and looking leaner. Metabolism is a crazy thing for sure, but looks like I'll keep the gain train rolling onwards. New cals are now 2480. 175P/320C/55F. Lowest my body weight has been starting this cals so let's see how I respond. Last time I was hitting these cals and maintaining I was about 169-170 so hopefully I'll maintain 161-163 on these as well. If I maintain for 7+ days, another jump will be made.

    Back/Biceps

    Rack Pull 4x5-7
    Sets 1-3: 315x7
    Set 4: 325x5

    Planned for 5 sets but I felt a strange sensation in my lower back on the first rep so I called set 5 off. Better to lose one set and not risk injury rather than push it and injure myself.

    Bent Over Row 4x10
    All sets with 160

    Weighted Pull-up 4x8
    All sets with BW+20

    Barbell Curls 4x8-10
    All sets were 70x10

    Seated Cable Row 3x10-12
    All sets 140x12

    Close Grip Pulldown 3x10-12
    All sets 140x10

    Concentration Curl 3x8, 5 second squeeze at top
    All sets 20x8

    Usually do Preacher curls, but the contraction on concentration curls is miles better.

    Berto Curls 3x15
    All sets 40x15

    Incline Hammer Curls 3x15
    All sets 25x15

    MISC: Workout was rather subpar mentally, but physically I still put up the weight I needed to and progressed so I'll count it as a strong workout. Really liking the way my biceps are filling out right now. Let's hope my chest starts behaving the same way.

    BTW, anyone seen the CT Fletcher documentary on Netflix? I know he gets flack for being a fake natty and what not but honestly I don't really care about the natty/fake natty thing until they're competing in tested shows. Either way, it's a super good documentary that I was expecting to be subpar. Generation Iron and a few others disappointed me, but this one was actually really good. Super inspiring considering CT Fletcher's troubled life as a child and young adult. Once you learn the story and mentality behind his saying "It's still your motherf***ing set" you really do gain a a lot of respect for the man. 10/10 in my book, would highly recommend.

    Morning weigh in: 162.4 I've struggled to be 100% on point with my macros over the past few days due to life being super hectic over the past few days. I've made due but with a breakup, my friend moving in, getting called in to work on both Sat and Sun then having class yesterday along with being our only waiter yesterday afternoon and evening on Halloween (again), and all this with a 12 page research paper due Friday, it's been a struggle. Gonna experiment with some meal prepping then leaving 300-500 calories open so I can have my macros pretty well lined out for the day.

    Push

    Incline DB (switching to DB's for a bit) 5x5-10
    Sets 1-4: 70x10
    Set 5: 80x6

    Flat DB Flies 4x8-12
    Sets 1-3: 40x12
    Set 4: 40x10

    Standing OHP 3x8-10
    All sets 95x10

    Decline HS 4x12-15
    All sets with 45+35+5 PSx15

    Upright Row 3x10-12
    All sets 115x12

    Pec Deck 4x12-15
    All sets 130x15

    Lateral Raises 4x20
    All sets with 30's.


    Tweaked something in my lower back with the rack pulls, but nothing bad. Feels a lot just like a pinched sciatic nerve so I'm hoping a few days of consistently rolling it out will solve this problem. Until then, no squats/front squats or movements that involve that general area to a large degree.

The routine he wrote he me is super in depth so I won't post it up here but you'll get an idea as I log the workouts.

    Dang man! that volume. how long did that session take? Mirin' the macros at the moment as well. Corbin has a sick physique and i think you made a good decision. going to be interesting to see these sessions.

    new avi is looking pretty sick, by the way

    I love the high volume approach to training and avoiding failure for the most part other than maybe on one set. Recovery has increased tenfold since I stopped taking every set balls to the wall and going to failure and beyond. All in all, this workout took roughly 1.5-2 hours. That was me and my friend really pushing it too, minimal bs'ing during sets and the only real rest periods were us changing the weights (he's more of a beginner so he's using lighter weights). To give you a rough idea I'm running a high volume hypertrophy - strength - low volume hypertrophy type of cycle right now. The first cycle of the push, pull, and leg workouts are somewhat lighter high volume with faster (yet still controlled) reps, second cycle is strength only, and third cycle is low volume hypertrophy where I'll be loading the weight a bit higher and doing fewer reps but really taking the reps slow and getting maximum contraction. To go through a full cycle of this it takes about a month.

    But thanks man, found some half-natty lighting and had to take advantage.

    Not my strongest ever, but since I'm weighing 160-163, it's a body weight PR for sure.

    Pec Deck 3x8
    Set 1: 150x8
    Set 2: 150x8
    Set 3: 175x8

    OHP 3x8,6,6

    Weigh in: 162.3. Honestly pretty surprised at how fast my metabolism has recovered. Just under a month ago I was on 1645 cals + cardio was up to 30 mins 3x per week with 2 HIIT sessions. Now I'm maintaining on 2535 cals with one refeed at 2790 per week. Cardio just 2 LISS sessions at 20 mins and 1 MISS at 15. Crazy how the human body works.

    Lower (strength)

    Squats 6x5,4,3,4,3,2
    Set 1: 230x5
    Set 2: 245x4
    Set 3: 255x3
    Set 4: 250x4
    Set 5: 255x3
    Set 6: 265x2

    Conventional Deadlift 6x5,4,3,4,3,2
    Set 1: 255x5
    Set 2: 275x4
    Set 3: 295x3
    Set 4: 285x4
    Set 5: 300x3
    Set 6: 315x2

    Deadlifts were like a hot knife cutting through butter. Could've gone much heavier but this was a good assessment day.

    Leg Extensions 3x8
    Set 1: 115x8
    Set 2: 130x8
    Set 3: 150x8

    GHR 3x8
    All 3 sets were BW+45x8

    Solid workout. Squat strength is wayyyyyy down but that's expected. Deadlift is going smoother than anticipated though.

    Been super busy this past week with school and apartment business as well as increased hours at work. Just know that I've still been crushing it even if I haven't been logging it.

    Riding that gain train for sure, for another week or so at least. Gonna make a short pit stop due to my second surgery but after that, getting back on board.

    A buddy and I are looking into one and it's running us 400-500 per month apiece. Single bedroom is about 400-500 in its own, non luxury at least. The place we leased at is in a prime location so it's a bit pricier but should be easily manageable.

    we're within a pound of one-another in terms of bodyweight right now and your pressing blows mine away. especially overhead. good work.

    Mirin' the macros as well. I'm sure being on your feet a lot is helping out with increases in food
