    Thanks. For the most part, I think. Just a little tired and I almost passed out at the end of a recent workout very suddenly; otherwise, nothing I can pinpoint.

    I feel like a tank. Just need to stay healthy. Kinda rushed into some heavy presses the other day and aggravated my left shoulder. Really pushing the leg volume and weights up.

    Shoulder impingement comes to mind as last night I oddly slept pain free and this am feel fine. It’s like whatever was wrong suddenly fixed itself. I fully expected to be suffering with inflammation after Training…anyway, let’s hope it continues to feel better.

    Yesterdays food:

    Grilled chicken, ham, cheese sandwich for breakfast, two eggs fried in that sandwich.
    Whey shake and a banana
    Chicken, ham and cheese on oatmeal bread
    Chicken ham and cheese on wheat
    Whey shake
    Ice cream and mixed nuts

    My chest always feels so much better worked when I include flyes…my lats are sore and worked well too.

    Tomorrow is legs/ams and should be a blockbuster as I already feel fully recovered.

    I’m up…power has been flickering so rushed to cook two egg meals.

    Breakfast was eggs, oats, coffee.
    Lifting soon provided we have power.

    Sleep was rough so this needs to happen early or I’ll be napping in my old man chair.
    No shoulder pain however I know fitting under the squat bar will be difficult.

    Rest of the days meals:
    Whey shake, two small bananas
    Eggs, oatmeal, cheddar
    Two grilled cheese and chicken sandwiches, large glass milk, chips
    Tea
    Chicken breast and mashed potatoes, spinach for dinner
    Whey shake/milk before bed

    High rep squats are butt kickers.

    Set multiple PRs again today but it was all grueling due to shoulder woes and poor sleep. I did what I could but cut arms short after a few PRs there.

    Machine squats PRs fell big time!
    175x20 fairly easy.*
    205x15* I can remember first getting my machine and 205 was about a 6 rep set.
    235x8
    265x6
    295x4
    325x4
    My low back was tight all thru those sets…

    Front squats
    185x4,4,3,3
    (Fronts will now be a low volume movement for me so I don’t have to hold the bar so long)*That means 3-6 rep range. 3-4 sets.

    Leg ext
    200x11*
    9,9,8,8

    Leg curls
    135x13
    145x9,8,9,7

    Pretty gassed…should have put arms off til this afternoon
    EZ curls
    85x15*
    95x12 tie
    104x10*
    114x7
    124x5

    Pushdowns
    88x17
    98x16*
    108x11*
    118x9
    125x8*

    An 8 PR day.

    Reflecting a bit on my training….and eating…

    In the 1980s into the mid 90s, six days a week plus sports and cardio (running)- I literally ate anything and everything I could get. Still my body fat was extremely low. I had it tested at 8% by underwater weighing.

    I can remember struggling to reach 225x5 on bench. What a milestone that was.

    In the 90s, After working in a gym as a fitness instructor I decided to switch to this current split to fit my cardio on off days. My knees wore out and I sold my treadmill In 2010. I have made several attempts to add running back in, all ended with injury.

    The strength gains without cardio are real. It happens fast. The same can be said about diet plan with 6 meals a day. Fast bulking with copious amounts of quality protein works.

    Training energy without cardio and in a generous calorie spree is amazing at any age and well worth it if just to create new enthusiasm.

    Took “rotator cuff tear tests” I found from “Brad and Bob” PTs on YouTube. Two negative and one positive. In fact I wouldn’t even attempt the one where you face palm backward and push arm away from your body behind your back. That would probably make my issue worse. Mine seems like a front delt strain maybe.

    In any case,gradually over the last few weeks I felt like a I was losing range of motion in my shoulder making it harder to hold the squat bar and harder to go to the bottom of a bench press….poor flexibility… Like my pecs were tight. I’ve put a lot of size on my chest, back and delts. I really feel like I need to stretch more. No doubt I need more warmup sets nowadays…

    As far as discomfort…

    The pain is like a 1-2 on a scale of 1-10 now..hardly noticeable most of the day ….but I know shoulder press isn’t happening. I can do the range of motion though.

    After 8 PRd this am on arms I hit a slew more on legs! This high rep squats rep goal stuff is evil but fun too. I’m thrilled with the change from last spring til now. Unreal. Got a very good quad pump tonight which is really rare for me.

    I went to bed focused on this first set and nailed it! The second set was a PR as well!

    Machine squats
    185x20*( was using 135 this summer right?)
    215x15 *( was using 165 this summer)
    245x8
    275x6
    305x5
    335x3
    Seriously considered 365 for a single PR

    Machine fronts
    185x6* (move to 190 next time)
    195x4
    205x3

    Leg ext
    Backed off on these as the low reps bothered my repair
    125x16
    150x12
    175x9
    175x9
    175x9

    Leg curls
    135x16*
    145x11
    155x8
    155x8
    155x8

    Thrilled…obvious progress.

    Today I made a decision to “double up” on protein if I knew I was going to miss a meal. My new work schedule and responsibilities on weekends was going to change eating patterns a bit.

    Breakfast- eggs. Whites, oats, cheese, coffee
    Mid morning- whey shake, banana
    Lunch- doubled it, 1 lb ground turkey, potato
    Mid afternoon- whey shake, mixed nuts
    Dinner will be chicken thighs, potatoes or rice, broccoli or green beans


    My body has really changed. I can see so much more of a V shape with wider and thicker shoulders and chest/back. My tee shirts and sweat shirts fit differently.

    I plan to continue to chase size, provided the strength comes with the mass. I feel very good. My shoulder pain is 0/1 now.

    Got a nice compliment at work today. “Whoa Coach, looks like you’re getting bigger!” “Good for you”

    Always good to get some feedback. Working hard, kicking my own %#@#% and getting close to taking a few days off to rest.

    Successful haul at the grocery store yesterday.

    Todays food:
    Eggs, whites, oats, cheddar, coffee
    Chicken and cheese on oatmeal bread
    Chicken and cheese on oatmeal bread, tea
    Tuna and cheddar, oatmeal bread toast, ranch and bbq sauce, cheddar , milk
    Tonight will be chicken thighs (3) with starch of some kind
    Probably will have whey shake

    Can’t wait to break PRs tomorrow!
