Mahou's training log
 
Going to post my stuff here since I'm tired of posting all my workouts and progression in Misc Progress thread.

Today, I decided to do a bit of high volume on chest. I usually just stick to incline, but I've been mixing it up each workout. Today happened to be incline, and next workout will be the decline.

135x10
185x12
205x8
225x6
135x15
185x10
205x10
225x4

At this point I felt pretty good, but a little worn.

3x15 of chest dips.

Did some auxillary work for triceps - 50 lbs (cable pull downs)
3x15

With the recent max of 275 on incline, I'm going to be shooting for 315 near the end of the year (I will have finally hit 315 on both flat bench and incline).

Today was a little mixture of back and chest. I'm working on a caloric deficit for about 3 days and then get a surplus for the rest of the week. I didn't really monitor my sets for back...kind of just did some upright pull downs, upright rows, and back rows. Kept the weight moderate and did 3x15.

Did some decline and I'm feeling pretty strong.

135x10
225x8
245x6
265x4
265x3

Each set I did some diamond pushups in between. I'm thinking about investing into some bands but only for stretching.

For once, I'm actually happy with the progress that is coming along. Sorry for the undies picture.

Today was a bit unusual for me seeing how I hit pr in squats.

435 lbs for 2 reps....which is a little over 2x of my body weight. I'm aiming for 455 soon.

I did some deadlifts...which is something I never do. Felt good getting 405 for a few times. Maybe I should deadlift more? Idk...got mixed feelings about it.

You never deadlift and you got a 405?

That's pretty insane actually.

Thanks. i do like the exercise a lot and I'm more comfortable doing it now that I have a belt. That goes with squats as well. Before I used to never squat over 345 because it would put too much pressure on my lower back.

For anybody who actually reads this training log, invest into a belt. You And your lower back will thank you in the long run

Today is something I'm going to remember for the rest of my life. I have finally joined the 315 club on two of my main lifts...(bench press and decline). Incline is 275 but I will hopefully get that with more time and patience.

Re: Mahou's training log
 
Probably the last thing I will post for awhile but I have been making some really crazy progress.

Today I hit chest again but I put more emphasis on my legs.

Bench press was what I did...
225 1x10
245 1 x 5
265 1 x 5
275 2 x 4

Pretty solid sets imo. These past few weeks, I feel like my upper body has been exploding in strength.

Squats were pretty good. Worked my way up to 315 and started doing abbot of high volume.

315 3x10
245 1x16

I tried going for 20 but I was pretty beat out. Finished the workout with some leg extensions and called it a night.

Been about a month and I thought I'd post a progress picture of what I look like now. Still making some strength gains....

uh hit 285 on the incline bench press today. Felt really good - especially for the lack of calories I had today.

Good stuff man, being able to push through even when low on fuel is a sign of great progress. Also those shorts look hella comfy

The shorts I'm wearing cost me 25usd. Bit pricey but I pretty much wear pants like this all the time. I hate wearing jeans - no circulation aka nuthuggers.

Thank you for the compliment. Had a rough week so your words mean a lot.

Hopefully. I've been averaging over 300g of carbs and I'm not even growing. I'm about to up it even more.

Today I did some solid strength training. I'm actually starting to enjoy bench press again. I got some amazing tips from an experienced bencher so I'm hoping that I will see an improvement on my max before the end of the year comes.

I love bulking. Strength is going up and I'm hitting prs.
215 for 12 reps on the incline

Re: Mahou's training log
 
Bench press is becoming more consistent

Did 3 sets of 225 3 x 10 on the flat. Feels really good. I think what kind of amazes me the most is my strength and endurance has been going up but I'm not even nearly as heavy as I was as my peak. Right now I only weigh roughly 208 pounds opposed to the 216 I used to be. It wasn't until I dropped 5 lbs a lot of my lifts started to become stronger.

Also, feeling better than ever since I've completely given up alcohol.

Nice ladder dude.

Also, nice to hear you're feeling straight after giving up alcohol--good shit!
