Just a little note: I stopped lifting during the summer of 2010 due to football and just starting to lift again. I'm running SPBR.

Notes:

Man the bench press was hard. I had to lift with out a spotter so I'm guilty of bouncing it off my chest just in case. I'm still going to try and hit 255 next bench session though. I'm positive I'll hit it.

The Warrior Diet came in the mail yesterday. After reading the first two chapters I'm hooked. I'm reading this thing and taking notes out of the book like I have a final exam on it. I'm willing to sacrifice maximum strength and muscle gains to live a little bit better.

Notes:

My lifting sucked. I did not eat enough the past few days and It showed. I was not able to make a 10lb increase to my pushpress so I had to jump back to 175 and I did not hit the same reps I did last time. I did not improve any on my chinups and the gym I lifted at (different then the one I normally lifted) did not have a place for dips...

Notes:

Deadlifts were a major fail. I was going 305 for 3 x 5 but on my last set the weights got screwed up and i had to fix em. I hate the rounded hexagonal plates my gym has >>< On the positive side my front squats felt amazing :proud:

I'm going to take 3-4 days off. Retest my one rep max for bench for weight training class (it's required) and deload and switch up my lifts.

notes:

My deadlift warmups sucked but my overall workout was the BOMB! It was my first time doing good mornings and they felt super good. I should of tried these out a long time ago instead of saying "they don't feel natural". the cable machines at this new gym are really old and lat pulldowns are not smooth, their is an other one so I'll try those otherwise ill substitute something else for them
