This can be hard to remember, especially if you aren’t seeing gains you want. Just keep pushing.
Two nerdy fitness-buffs talk about exercise, eating right, and not being a dumb ass. Also stuff for Tactical Athletes and others.
Didn’t lift 210 for my 5x5’s…
I LIFTED 215! Yeah, not much more, and I only did it because we don’t have the 2.5lb weights so I couldn’t/can’t do stuff like 210, 220, etc.
So I gained 25lbs on my bench press in a week. If this keeps up I’mma be I’mma be I’mma be awesome.
Run sucked though: 14.56 for 2.1 miles… I gotta get that shit down
#the first chicks just like yeah all right lets get physically fit #the second woman is ready to slit somebody’s throat #the third guy just watched the second woman slit someone he loves throat #and the fourth guy is having explosive diarrhea and hoping to distract himself from the pain #using this level forty fist nunchuck
and at level 70 you fucking animorph into a gorilla
This is my second week, it’s going well this far:
Monday: 5x5’s on squat with 5min rest between sets, last week was 235, this week was 255
Tuesday: 5x5’s on bench press with 5min rest between sets, last week was 190, this week will be 210 and 2 mile run for time
Wednesday: 5x5’s on dead lift with 5min rest between sets, last week was 225, this week will be 245
Thursday: 10x10’s on bench press and squats, at 80% your 5x5’s and then a 2 mile run for time
Friday: 10x10’s on dead lift and pull ups (I’m substituting isolated arm pull downs to get more weight up) at 80% your 5x5’s and approx body weight
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday is also boxing for and hour and a half for me, there’s cardio.
Saturday is a ruck march with 60lbs ruck, aimed for 6mph but hitting closer to 5.5mph for 3 miles right now, gonna bump it to 4 miles in three weeks.
This shit hurts but I’ve already noticed the gains coming. I’m bulking right now anyway, almost hitting 200lbs, I’m so close! And I’m a mesomorph that leans towards ectomorph, I’ve never been good at gaining past 185 and if I don’t work out I’ll even at about 175, so I’m super excited to say I am officially 196!
Lord forgive me for the gains I have made!
