    First time lifting in the morning shortly after waking. 12 oz choc milk, apple, c4 preworkout and creatine in me.

    Squat
    3x5x220-eyes gonna pop. 4, 4.5, 5 minutes rest. Reps 4 and 5 grindy. Right bicep aggravated.

    Press-man squatting just wrecks me. Hard to recover enough to press. 2, 3 minutes between sets.
    95x2
    105x2
    115x1-tied lifetime PR. Especially for only weighing 200. Last time I hit this I was heading toward 220. Also blacked out when I hit lockout and barely made the j hook. Didn't hit the floor. Well then. First time for everything.


    Weighted Chins- 4 minutes rest
    +5x5,5,4,1



    Nutrition was fantastic all weekend.

    I travel to VA tomorrow for a family vacation. Aiming to train on Friday at a crossfit box in norfolk. Going to attempt to not lose any weight.

    I am not trying to pack weight on quickly. Just a very slow lean amount of muscle as I go. My recovery and sleep schedule will not let me add it quickly, I'll just get fat. Been there done that twice.

    Good work, man. Taking it slow and steady seems to fit your life circumstance quite well.

    First time I ever hit a partial blackout was also on press, during a morning when I trained shortly after waking. Weird feel, right?

    Thanks man! Yeah slow and steady is all I can manage. Can't be greedy.

    And yeah very weird feeling!! Good way to sprain a wrist.

    Difference from lifting and eating cleaner is becoming more visible. I look better at 200 than 190.

    Nutrition with traveling has been terrible all week though. I hammered chinese late last night to try to get ready for today.

    9/18

    Training at BURNfit crossfit in suffolk, va today. I also have a cold hitting. Tomorrow will be the worst day it feels like. C4 and DayQuil preworkout.
    No collars. No racks only stands so no safety pins. $10 ain't bad though.
    No pins makes it very enticing to rack it on rep 4 or get it on rep 5.


    Squat-first time ever using an Ohio power bar and oh man do I love the center knurl and the stability it gives.
    3x5x225-happy day 2PPS
    4, 4, 5 minutes rest

    Deadlift
    5x295-this came pretty easy. Belt and chalk.

    Press-skipped the change plates as they are in a room with a class. 3-3.5 minutes between sets
    95x3, 2+1, 3

    I lost it forward after lockout on the 2nd rep of set 2. Went to rack it and a plate slid off. Stupid no collars. At least they are bumpers. Immediately unracked and hit another rep.

    Chins
    5, 5

    Pushups
    10 (I did a set of 15 and a set of 10 yesterday)

    Training de railed due to work and sickness. This is a way to work out some of that soreness that would hammer me if I went straight back into it.

    Bought a 12 pound 5 foot bar for when I have to lift at home.

    10/3 back to it

    Chins
    4 sets of 5

    Press
    62x8, 82x6, 92x5, 102x2, 92x4

    Sickness appears to be an ulcer. Thinking duodenum. Full course of proton pump inhibitors and a mild diet to try to get it in check. Have not been my productive self. A lunch of a nice cheeseburger and a piece of pie put me into a full day in bed yesterday.
