    I'm the same way. I could only do a true balls-to-the-wall full body workout earlier in my lifting career. I know it's often claimed to be sup-optimal, but I actually notice my most gains now when I hit a muscle group once per week. It looks like you're finding what works for you and I truly believe everyone's different. Also, I just wanted to stop in & say great fuking progress man! I've been keeping up with your log for a long tme & it's heartening to see you finally making some srs, sustainable gains. Even if you falter here & there in the process, you finally seem to have CONSISTENT habits in place. For my money, consistency is actually the path out of disordered eating hell (as much as it's also often the way in). You know you can turn to these new, better habits if things go south in the future. Anyway, all the way around, great progress man! Keep it up.
    I 100% agree everyone is different in regards to training respons. Sometimes the studies I have read behind 3xper week training just seem unbelievable to me UNLESS you put people into a situation where they can 100% dedicated their focus to training and NOTHING else in life.

    I've done the 1x per week thing, too, and the only thing I didn't enjoy about that is that, by the time 2-3 days past, the muscles I worked seem to be a bit of fullness, and it only came back once I trained them again. Now, thats not to say them feeling more 'full' means more actual growth, but I think there's a combined effect of (1) you just liking the split in general and (2) the effect that training appeal has when you're in the gym. If you don't like the training, you're just not going to try as hard.

    This split also allows me to only take 1 day off at a time, but still have 3 non-lifting days every week... another good thing because, in my experience, when I take 2 days off, it takes me a bit longer to warm up when I get back.

    But yeah so far, progress on back and legs has been great. For OHP... I dunno, I think MAYBE the carryover with back training might be hurting it, which is why I'm considering only doing OHP once a week, and then Bench on the other push day to give my delts a bit more rest.

    The fact that my squat has increase 40+lb and my rows have increased quite a bit too in the last couple months really has me feeling good.

    I'm definitely curious what my bodyweight is right now... but I guess I don't really care really. I just felt like taking a few weeks to chill about it and see how it goes. Having more carbs pre and post workout is also great, with the pre-workout being just a shake... gives me enough of a bump without giving me reflux.

    At the moment I am flying solo, but I had a few consults with an old therapist of mine prior to starting, and i also kept in touch with them via phone until I felt I made enough progress.

    And yes, I highly, highly recommend seeing someone.

    Not a bad plan, if you have enough recovery days

    Well today kind of sucked.... not too bad though.

    Woke up in a weird position and my left rear shoulder area was really irritated with movement. It didn't really flare up at the gym, but either way was a bit odd... oh well.

    Nothing progress-wise today... I did an exact repeat from last push day, and was still able to nag 3 of my 5 sets on squats with 160 5x5, the last two being 155.

    If anything, I think I grinded too hard last time and this was just a reflection of that. On saturday I think it'll be nice and easy.

    Either way, workout took a loooong time... had rest quite a bit.

    Well, just one of those weeks.

    Only able to do a repeat workout this morning, Pull day.

    Woke up at like 2am after 3.5-4hrs of sleep and felt fine... couldn't get back to sleep until like 5am... then when I finally woke up at 730... just felt awful... like worse than at 2am... weird.

    ANYWAY...

    I decided it was time to weigh myself this morning after two weeks off and just not caring, given some lags in strength changes.

    Obviously I haven't been weighing in so today's could be a fluke, but I'm up 1.7lb from two weeks ago, so that's an average of around .8lb/week... but that might be closer to 1 or closer to .5, who knows.

    EITHER way, it went up... so im happy there

    I also might start tracking my food temporarily to make sure i'm getting enough and see how that goes, too.

    My weight has remained the same for weeks but I feel I'm getting slimmer. I haven't been keeping track of what I'm eating either.
    “To finish the moment, to find the journey's end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.”

    ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Live your life how you want it and not to appease others.

    That is key; Im working on that too

    I think from so much emphasis on it in the past, it takes steps towards not letting it control

    Finally hit 160 for my 5x5 squat today.

    Felt very sturdy and strict. Not light, but great on form.

    Yet again... OHP hasn't changed. Not sure what to do about that.

    AWESOME lift today:


    - Exceeded target reps for BB Row (got to 135x9 on the first set)
    - Reached 165lb on Romanian DL's for all sets (now 165 for 3x8)
    - Increased DB curl reps


    Sleep has been hugely improved.... feeling awesome. Gaining weight pretty quick, but it feels really good having the extra leverage finally.

    Thanks man. Mentally and physically I'm in a weird transitional place... coming out of this eating disorder is a bit like being 'born again' in a way... getting used to feeling fuller, less hunger, better hormonal function, mental focus... makes me appreciate how adaptive the human body can be. Truly amazing.... i'm just glad I finally sucked it up and started properly feeding myself and enjoying not obsessing over leanness.

    Had a weak session today... back was feeling pretty fatigued and I suspect I didn't get great sleep. New job is awesome but, honestly, it can be overwhelming.

    That being said, Im getting the feeling I need to over-feed/force-feed a little more... as much as I want to simply be 'intuitive', I think testing out a higher-calorie approach for a few weeks just to see where I land would be useful.

    So, i'll probably be opting for more high-fat protein sources... lots of fattier fish, etc... see how I do on that.
    Why live a 'good' life when you could live an EPIC life?
