RE: AcftW’s Progress Thread
Forgot to post yesterday’s workout, only increase was on dips, 3 sets of 3 with 30 lbs. I also incorporated a tip from Steelex’s recent thread, with doing 4 second negatives with my accessories.

workouts will be a little sparse the next couple weeks, as I’m going to be traveling and using gyms as available.

A bit of sternum pain on first set of body weight dips, I’m thinking about just scrapping them. Kills me to do it, but I just don’t see myself getting back up to +90lbs without re-injuring myself several times.

Going to start an LGD 4033/MK 677 bulk soon, followed by cut with Ostarine on my next work trip overseas. Did a 20lb cut from 220-200 last year with it (8 weeks) while increasing strength. Hoping for similar results this year.

Decided to make a solid day just for forearms/grip and neck. I’ll still be doing the wrist roller and neck stuff on my other days too, but this way I can start fresh instead of having my grip already fatigued. Plus I can add in Farmers Walks again without it interfering with my pulls.

Last workout for about a week, doing some traveling and won’t have access to a gym for a bit. Getting my left sleeve finished not long after, so I’ll take a few days off for that to heal as well.

Got a workout in today, just a basic arm focused day because I didn’t have any chalk. It’s a gym I used to go to and I talked with my buddy who does memberships there, got me a week pass.

That 135x20 hyper set was a killer lol, most I had done prior was 15 with 135. My goal is 315x3 by the end of 2018, though I think with a lot of effort I can hit it by the end of October.

Doing the 5x3 lighter rack pull day is catching up to my heavy day, so I think I’m going to focus on 495 and try to work toward 10 reps with it. 5 reps is pretty tiring after a few sets, so it should be good for conditioning, not to mention extra grip work. I’ll still do my 405x10 at the end of my heavy day, but will try to push that to 15 reps.

Felt like I had another rep in me on the 525 set, but decided against it. The 405x15 was a brutal exercise in cardio lol. Felt like I just got done running.

Some more travel coming up for work in a couple weeks, so my calorie intake and training will be out of whack. Probably be visiting 3 gyms in the space of a week getting to the site overseas. Never know what a gym is going to have to offer.

Went to the gym twice today, nothing crazy to report.

Tendonitis is gone from my bicep so that’s nice.

I think my dead hangs are going to stall until I start cutting in a couple months, plus doing them right after farmers walks is making my grip trash lol. But that’s what I’m going for so I guess it’s working.

Damn, the back pump with barbell hyperextensions must be unreal. Does it give you any kind of back pain/what kind of erector/ham gains have you seen since you started doing them?

I actually haven’t had any back pain or sciatic tingling since I started doing them heavier. I think it’s been a great benefit.

Pants feel a bit tighter, and I’ve got more ass than I used to. Honestly though, I think it’s just making up for me not pulling from the floor anymore. Hamstrings are definitely stronger than before though, in the beginning my knees were buckling at the top of the hypers, but don’t anymore.

Aiming for 315 by the end of the year.
