    **insert witty intro bs here**

    I normally wander Lyle's board at BR, but find myself here constantly. I need a place to keep a steady log and this seems like a good spot. Currently a bit of cutting for me still, although nothing insane, my pace is slow. Work is making my schedule for everything a bit random at times, so I am sticking near maintenance a lot of the time, with only real periods of dieting when I can get things scheduled how I like with training, food, etc.

    Stats: 6'0" 195 BF% ~10-12 probably

    Have been training for a long while, but only non-retardedly for the last 2. My routine is full bodyish as my insane hatred of all things cardio drives me to keep it that way. Setup I currently run is the following:

    Monday: Volume-ish
    Box Squat: 2-3x5
    DB Bench: 2-3x5
    Cable Rows: 1-2x12
    Incl Fly: 1x12
    BB curl: 1x12
    Close Grp (3bd): 1x12
    Decline Abs: 2x5

    Tues: Random etc, hopeful cardio
    Hise Shrug: 1x10 **nothing crazy
    Side Lat raise: 1-2x10-12
    Stnd Calve: 2x5
    Seated Calve: 1x12
    Cardio: 20-30 min walking @ meh effort

    Wed: Lower Volume-ish
    Deads: 1x3-5
    Milit Press: 1x12
    Pulldowns: 1x12
    BB curl: 1x12
    Close Grp (3bd): 1x12
    **Softball Wed nights

    Thurs: Cardio hopeful... if I go...
    Cardio: 20-30 min walking @ meh effort

    Friday: Heavy stuff
    Box Squat: 1x5
    DB Bench: 1x5
    Cable Rows: 1x12
    BB curl: 1x12
    Close Grp (3bd): 1x12
    Decline Abs: 1x5

    Sat: Same as Tues

    Sun: Off

    DIET: 12ishxBW, most carbs around workouts.

    Fun fun. I will add more crap as I go through the days.

    Notes: Tired as a motherbitch today, damn weekend threw off my sleep schedule. Other than that... did what I could. I am coming off basically 1-2 weeks almost off. We had a site-wide shutdown and I was putting in 16-hour days... fun fun. It doesnt leave much time for training when you only get 8 hours off.

    Tues: Random etc, hopeful cardio
    Hise Shrug: 1x10 - 315
    Side Lat raise: 2x10 - 22.5
    Seated Calve: 1x12
    Cardio didnt happen haha

    Diet: Didnt get to write it all down, but it was built on stuff I normally use. If I had to guess, I am probably a little high on protein and a little low on fats, carbs about the same. Not a common habit, but it happens from time to time.

    Notes: Gym was absurdly packed, with no vagina in sight. Twas a strange all sausage jamboree of sorts. There was 3 bro's grouped at the standing calves and they rotated for pretty much the entire time I was there (~55min). So, I didnt get those in, but ah well.

    Cardio didn't happen as it was 8:30pm and I justified not doing it by going home and going to sleep by ~9pm. Apparently I am 65-yrs old, but fuck it... I feel good this morning.

    Wednesday: "Off"

    Notes: Bumped things a day as I got off work and there was roughly an hour before softball (not counting the 30min drive home). So, I was pretty limited and I get bitchy when I don't get enough sleep. I will just swap my rest day(s), no big deal, its all pretty flexible.

    I did hit a ball off the fuckin scoreboard though, so I at least got that going for me.


    Deads tonight.

    Deads: 335x3
    Military Press: 115x12 +
    W. Pulldowns: 80x12
    ClsGrip: X
    Thick BB Curl: 25sx12x6 UP
    Abs: 85x5


    Diet: Dont have my notebook with me for exact numbers, but I remember being ~15g low on Protein, almost exact on Fat, and a few grams above on Carbs. Close enough.

    Notes: "+" means a rep gain, "UP" means a jump in weight next go round.
    Had a few more in deads left in me, but I tweaked my back a few weeks ago and do not feel like pushing all the way again yet. I will get there soon enough. Forgot my damn boards for close grip, so I was mainly fuckin around without it and just shot some high reps without.

    I drop by Lyle's site from time to time, and have seen you over there, but seldom look at the logs there.

    It's nice to see that you're posting here as well. I'll plan on checking out your log here from time to time.
