    Everyone's got their different strengths for sure. You're repping out 3+ plates on squats like its nothing and I'd be lucky to grind one rep out with it right now Gonna be off of squats AGAIN for a month at the very LEAST after tomorrow since I'll be getting surgery Wednesday. Not excited about that, because legs were showing some awesome progress since I switched from PL style of training and shifted more towards a BBing approach. Note to self... No more trampoline parks.

    Believe it or not I actually struggle with these macros at times. Intra workout Dextrose and c4 Mass (100 cals per scoop + 25g carbs for a pre workout) have been helping a lot though. Easy way to squeeze in some extra cals and really maximize training volume. Fat gain has been super slight, but somewhat noticeable in my lower back. I'll gladly take it though considering how much better I'm feeling.

    Weight hasn't looked the past few weigh ins, hoping its due to water and stuff from the surgery. Seen mostly 170's. Fingers crossed it'll go back down considering I've been eating super conservatively over the course of recovery and I'm 100% positive it wasn't enough to warrant this kind of gain. If so, oh well, but still not a pretty sight.

    Anyways, got back to the gym yesterday 4 days post op and actually hit a few PRs for chest movements. Only gonna log today's workout where I also hit some good numbers following surgery.

    MISC: Applied for a business management trainee internship and got a call back! It's a place in Tulsa called Dynamic Business Solutions. Going in for an interview with the President of the company Monday. The company is super awesome looking... All the employees are young adults who seem to be good friends as well. They go paintballing and do fun stuff like that all the time. Super stoked to get a call back and have the opportunity to interview for this!

    MISC; BIG NEWS
    I've been pretty busy over the past week, but it was the best kind of busy possible. Went in Monday for a job interview. Not gonna lie, when I got there it felt like I was in over my head. There were college grads and several grad students there as well. I got called back and the interview lasted about 5 minutes. The man interviewing told me to come back for round 2 interviews on Tuesday so I was super excited about that. Went in for round 2 on Tuesday and went out for a lunch interview with another lady and we just talked about the job and life in general. She asked me several interview questions which I felt confident answering. Anyways, lunch lasted about an hour and she told to follow her back in the building for round 3. I got back into the building and there were 2 others remaining. Got called back round 3 with the same man who interviewed me Monday and we went through some final questions. He told me I'd get the call regarding the position around 4-5. 4 rolled around, no call. 4:30, no call. 4:45, no call. 5, no call. At this point I was feeling discouraged. Finally about 5:30 I got a call from the receptionist saying the hiring team agreed that I'd be a good fit for the company and they were offering me the position. I start January 9th as an account executive and will work my way up into management from there. Super excited for this, especially considering the fact that this company is highly selective about its applicants. Can't wait to start this new road in life!

    Thanks Inna! This is definitely a complete 180 from the last job I had doing electrical work, but I feel like this suits me better. Its also pretty cool that I'm getting in on the ground floor of this job.

    I'll be doing door to door sales starting out.. Not completely thrilled about that, but hey it's my chance to show them what I can do. Once I move up from account executive, I'll be doing less of that and more along the lines of training others. Super excited to say the very least.

    Been battling a minor cold, but nothing terrible. Calories are now at 2850, 190P, 375C, 65F. One refeed at 175P, 480C, 60F usually reserved for chest day. Feels good being on these macros during the Holiday season. A bit more fat gain is becoming apparent, but still sporting some vascularity, striations, and a solid 4 pack so I'm not complaining in the least bit. I like the ripped look but I'm also liking the fluffier look as well, especially the better overall health as well. Push Strength later on today.

    Just caught up in here....congrats on the job. Serious life gains. I feel like sometimes people focus too much on degrees/titles when a solid work ethic meshed with a good personality and a good head on one's shoulders wins every time. Looks like things are going well in the gym, too. That bench press is getting up there. And that OHP is respectable as well. Happy to see that things are going well for you.

    Thanks bruh. Super excited to say the least. This company is a super good fit for me.

    Chest is one of my biggest focuses this offseason. My back always responds super well to training as well as my legs, where my arms come along at an average pace. My chest has always been poverty though, so I'm really buckling down there. Really hoping to see a 315+ BP by the end of this offseason, while keeping body fat in check of course as well.

My chest has always been poverty though, so I'm really buckling down there. Really hoping to see a 315+ BP by the end of this offseason, while keeping body fat in check of course as well.
    315....If i can ever get that, I'll be a happy man. What's the current bench 1RM PR?

    Haven't tested my current 1RM, but if I were to test it on an average day, I'd guesstimate it to be right around 255-260. On a refeed day where all the stars and planets aligned and I got a visit from the fairy godmother? Maybe 265.

    Been a minute since I posted! Superrrrrr busy here lately. Started my new job a week ago and it's super demanding but by far the most awesome job I've had as well. Super high energy work environment. Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm in a business office or a football locker room before a game with how crazy the energy is. Typical day is about 9:30-7:30, with Saturday being 8:30-3:30. It all works out to close to 60 hours a week so it's a long day and week for sure. When we're not in the office, we're on our feet all day in the field making sales. Haven't been able to hit the gym because I'm still waiting on my first paycheck so I can renew my membership. Once I get that, I'll probably just start working out in Tulsa since that's where the job is located. Wasn't able to move into the apt, so I've been driving about 45 minutes to and from work. Should be moved into one within the next month though. Just a quick little update.

    Appreciate it brotha. Things been treating me super well. Not gonna lie though, working for the #1 marketing/sales office for AT&T hasn't been easy, hell it's a pretty cut throat position tbh. One reason I love it. Gym at 6 in the morning, in the office by 9, leave the office usually 9:30 at night or so. Rinse and repeat 5 days a week then head in for 6 hours on Saturday. Hard works been paying off though. Worked my way into the top 5 of the office and am poised to take that #1 spot soon.

    Little update on my gym life. Still been hitting the gym, just super early. Really just been winging the workouts but making sure I've got my squats, deads, and presses in there. Diet has been more or less instinctive eating. Finding a balance when you're working 65+ hours per week isn't easy, but I'm working on it. Got my t levels checked a few weeks back and wasn't too happy to see 567 at the ripe old age of 22. Been changing up my sleep habits and upped my fats a tad while throwing some sprints and more heavy lifting into my regimen with hopes that will help them. Getting them checked again here in a month to see where I stand.

    atta boy. Was wondering how the lifting was going for you. I can't imagine the difficulty if you're on your feet all day. Hey, it could be worse. My brother actually has very similar levels to yourself, and i wouldn't be surprised if i were the same. Some of us just have lower T, I guess. although i do bet that getting more sleep and ^ dietary fat will get things moving in the right direction.

    Daaaaaaaammmnnn, though. Those hours during the week. Hoping that you have some cool coworkers, because I've come to find that that the company that you have can either make or break a position

    Whaddup fellas. Just a quick little update for y'all. The job/gym is moving in the right direction. For the past few months I had some family stuff going on with my grandpa's health along with working even more hours. Some days I'd be in the office by 8 and not home till 1 the next morning. Rinse and repeat. Very little time for the gym, but still squeezing it in. Got out of the game for about 4-5 months but making it a priority now, especially considering the job can be very high demand with long hours and 100% commission. I've worked my way up to a senior leadership position and just focusing on building up a strong sales team so I can start running my own show.

    Not following a specific program right now, just instinctive lifting as well as instinctive eating. Surprised myself in the gym as I still cranked out 225 on bench press for 1 rep and 315 on squat for one rep. Expected those to be way down. Body weight is roughly 170-175, 15-16% bf. I'm wanting to get back down to 11-12% bf and maintain that. Good for a lean healthy look, but not something overly hard to maintain. Once I start running my own show and hours aren't as long, I plan on getting 100% back into the game. Right now though, I'm doing what I can.

    EDIT: Don't know if I updated y'all, but I moved from tulsa ok to champaign il.

    Strength is coming back at an astronomical rate. Feels good to be getting back to my lifting roots. Was getting so burned out on life in general and just going through the motions every day with work and everything in general. Wake up, shower, get to the office, meetings, go out and meet with clients, train new employees, go home, go to bed, rinse and repeat the next day. Getting back into the gym has helped me re-kindle the fire I had a year ago. Not burning as strong as where it was, but returning at a good rate.

    Yesterday was once again, just instinctual training.

    Back+Biceps

    Rack Pulls
    Set 1: 225x20
    Set 2: 275x15
    Set 3: 315x15
    Set 4: 365x10

    Haven't went heavy on these for Idk how long yet pulling more weight for more reps than when I was doing them consistently.

    Bent Over Rows
    Set 1: 135x20
    Set 2: 155x15
    Set 3: 175x10
    Set 4: 185x8

    Lat Pulldowns
    Set 1: 140x12
    Set 2: 140x12
    Set 3: 150x10

    Shrugs
    Set 1: 185x20
    Set 2: 225x20
    Set 3: 245x15

    Barbell Curls
    Sets 1-5: 65x10

    Super Strict and controlled.

    One Arm Cable Curls
    Sets 1-3: 30x15

    Hammer Curls
    Sets 1-3: 30x15



    2 Days ago was legs

    Squats
    Set 1: 185x20
    Set 2: 205x15
    Set 3: 215x12
    Set 4: 225 AMRAP (14 reps)

    Haven't been trying to stay super lean or be super focused with diet, I'm just enjoying going through a nice "beefy" phase where my numbers are way up. Will most likely start a cut in a few months.

    Went to the gym yesterday and did 10x10 with 185 on squats, 1 minute rest between sets. Felt like doing something different and it was definitely a struggle bus. Don't plan on incorporating it often due to the DOMS and the fact I can be more productive with other workouts in the long run, but yesterday I just felt like torturing myself a bit lol.

    Life update, I've decided not to return to Champaign due to the sheer nature of the job. It was wearing down on both my physical and mental health with the hours. I actually got my T levels checked again when I got back and they'd dropped to 341, so a pretty significant drop. Most likely from lack of sleep and poor diet as well as a high stress environment. It truly takes a special breed to survive in a sales environment where income is 100% commission.

    I've since taken another position in OKC where I will be a personal trainer for a super awesome gym. I feel this a better career path for me since it will allow me to pursue my passion.

    Workout today was legs, haven't been going heavy just strictly higher rep.

    Squat: 4x20,15,12,10. 1xAMRAP

    Set 1: 190x20
    Set 2: 205x15
    Set 3: 225x12
    Set 4: 235x10

    AMRAP set was 225x21.

    This style of training has helped me regain my lost size on my legs and gain 2 inches over the last 3 weeks (muscle memory most likely) and I enjoy it. Probably will start incorporating more heavy leg days here soon.
