    So much fap material in here. Scenic pics of the outdoors, a 200x5 bench vid that you made look easy, and then some 110x5 seated presses


    Great work and good choice putting the press oriented work day before the pull oriented one. I have noticed that pulling before you press can screw with the presses but not the other way around(unless you are setting deadlift max PRs)
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Monday 10.19.2020: Chest

    Killer day today to kickstart Monday!

    Pretty low key weekend, no climbs. The mountains got 5-8" of snow Friday and Saturday which is cool as hell. Can't wait to break out the snowshoes and spikes!

    BW on Saturday was 179. Belly is looking way leaner, top 4 abs are popping like crazy. Chest is puffing back up. Dig it

    Any big movement that doesn't hurt that spot is a plus so I'm pretty stoked! The push 1st day pull the 2nd is a nice lineup, I dig it!
    4AM gets old by Friday haha (even more so if I'm up at 3 for a climb on Saturday)

    Thanks dude! Mountain treks have been great, this is a great time of year for it. I definitely like push day before the pull when it's back to back

    My strength is way off where I used to be, but physically the gains are flying back. Looking way leaner and chest and shoulders are quickly filling back out.

    Tuesday 10.20.2020: Legs

    Woke up feeling great today! Didn't linger at all after the alarm went off, just snapped up and got after it.

    Bar felt light on the back which was great. I think adding a couple heavy sets on calf raises is helping getting the body used to having that kinda load on the shoulders again.

    Split Squats
    45 x 5
    75 x 5
    95 x 3
    115 x 5
    115 x 5
    115 x 5
    these felt great, really crushed them. Heaps more in the tank

    Good Mornings
    115 x 5
    115 x 5
    115 x 5

    Calf Raises
    135 x 20
    185 x 20
    205 x 20
    225 x 10
    205 x 10
    185 x 10
    135 x 20
    BW x 20
    nice ramp up to get some heavy weight on the back then a drop set down to really torch them

    Kneeling Ab Wheel Rollouts

    That’s great the bar felt light with those split squats. Been seeing you do them over time shows how good and strong you have become with them.

    5-8” already holy cow! What’s the weather like at 4am?

    Wednesday 10.21.2020: Shoulders

    Not a bad session today. Tough to get up- I wanted to keep sleeping so I hit snooze twice before forcing myself up.
    I slept funny a few nights ago and since then the left side of my neck / trap has been sore. Didn't seem to affect the workout but I hope it loosens up soon.

    Seated OHP
    45 x 10
    45 x 10
    75 x 5
    100 x 3
    115 x 5
    115 x 5
    115 x 3
    heavy! Couldn't quite get 5 on the last set, but considering how the bar felt, I'm happy as hell I got 5 on the 1st 2.

    Chained Speed Bench
    115 x 3
    120 +60 Chains x 3
    120 +60 Chains x 3
    120 +60 Chains x 3

    Thanks dude! Can't believe how much I've taken to that lift, I was skeptical when I first tried them- sh!t is hard!
    In the mountains it's been pretty chilly. It was around 40° last time I was out. Even colder last weekend when it snowed. I can't wait for snowshoes and crampons.

    OHP always feels so fuked unless you're doing it like 1x a week lol such a tough movement

    I didn't realize your grip was so wide on bench also, dayummm. You ever try a slightly closer grip?

    Once again its very cool to see the gains come back so fast, nice work bruh.

    Thanks dude! feels so good having some gains come back, with numbers and in the mirror.

    Dem long monkey arms like the wider grip haha, middle fingers on the rings! Activates my chest so much better. Always found that to be my sweet spot back in the day, haven't tried moving it since my restart this year

    Monday 10.26.2020: Bench

    Definitely an asterisk on this one. Stiff neck from the other day just got worse and worse. I could barely turn my head Saturday, so sh!tty 2 nights of sleep. It's loosened up a bit, but difficult to get into that tight setup on the bench. I busted out a couple sets but definitely not at 100%

    Solid pushing for having a cramped up neck. Them neck/trap muscles are more important to overall strength than most people realize. At least you didnt have a pull workout while your neck is getting better.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Tuesday 10.27.2020: Legs

    Neck is still fukked, although my ROM is getting a bit better. Didn't want to mess with any weight on my shoulders so I did a modified leg session. Still trashed them pretty good.

    Split Squats
    BW x 10

    Thanks dude!
    Yea it sucks, even just to tense up for a heavy grinder just shoots pain through the whole area.

    Just tried them split squats again today as well. I like your idea of bodyweight. I should have done that to start them off lol. The odd addition of BB curls at the end of this made me laugh for some reason.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Damn still pushing even with a wonky neck. Have you done anything to try to fix your neck? Massage or Chiro? I can’t even function with a bad neck. I immediately go and get it fixed.

    Monday 11.2.2020: Chest

    Killer Monday session, tore it up for over an hour, everything feels great and motivation is high.

    BW was 177 on Saturday, so slowly on a downward trend. I'm fine with that, strength has been awesome and I have a lot of spare tire to lose around my midsection.
    Diet has been decent although I had more drinks last week than previous weeks. Nothing crazy, but 1-2 every evening. Still good that I'm down a pound a week.

    Really trying to keep a self improvement mindset constant and it's been paying off with gym motivation for sure.

    225 x 1 *Hnnnngggg 1st time post surgery
    170 x 10
    fuk yea. stoked I got 210x5 for one set. Probably could have eeked out the 5th rep on the 2nd set but I didn't want an all out grinder. 225 was gravy, could have had a double. Was stoked to get 10 on the burnout set

    I thought about chiro, but it seemed to be muscular strain. Not 100% better yet but much better the last two days.

    Damn you made that 225 look like a warmp-up single to something heavier. Benchpress is coming along really well and very quickly. Whats the plan for bench from here?

    Thanks apeman! feelsgood to hit 225 again. I knew I could smash it easy, but after 2 sets of 210, I was surprised at HOW easy. dig it

    That baby is chambered for 5.56mm / .223.
    He sold me 2 boxes of ammo with it so I'd have something, but I quickly ordered 1000 rounds online, should be here by week's end

    Nice work pushing through a neck strain, I hate that crap. No point in resting and losing gainz lol
    Haha right on! Thanks dude

    Yea I don't want any forced breaks, I'll find something lighter or different to do until I heal. Early morning workouts have been a staple in my mental health since I've gotten back to it.

    All the work going on in here. Nice sessions pushing through the neck problem. Your upper back had to be blown up after that session!

    Do you need to dial the bench numbers back. It seems the problem isn’t strength it would be the diet from the day before?
