    Session #17

    Felt like shit today. Was on the road for my job yesterday, had a little lunch at Burger King prior to training and what happened? On the bowls for hours 2h after lunch. Fuck them chickenburgers... So I had to skip yesterday's training and went in today. Not enough food, not enough sleep, feeling dizzy. But what happened? I hit all my numbers and feel like a king now. That's Barbell Medicine, I guess.

    I fucked the dates up... Now it's correct again.
    The PC gets heavy, I guess I increased the weight too rapidly. Let's see how it works the next session, but if it feels like today, I'll have to reset to 60Kg again. Not a big deal, I was a bit too greedy I think.

    Everything went good today, nothing to complain about. If someone told me 8 weeks ago that Id lift 135Kg today Id have called him crazy. But as Rip says: this shit just works.

    Session #20

    Why oh why don't I eat enough food sometimes? Yesterday I had so much action with the kids that I forgot to eat. Squats were all done but felt hard because I was so hungry and defo not fully recovered... Press was good, the PC was reset to 60Kg in order to correct my form and it went a lot better than the last PC session where I didn't jump hard enough and lost tightness while catching the bar. I will progress from here again.

    Oh, and: I blew my pants. Dat ass and thighs are growing a LOT. Need some new pairs of more elastic pants...

    There were moments today in which I thought about transitioning to phase 3, but nope, I won't. I will BBQ the whole weekend and get as much food in my body as I can. I have some numbers in my head before going p3, that's:

    SQ110
    Bench85
    Press60
    DL150
    PC70

    When I get this done, I transition, first thing will be microloading the press, SQ... maybe 110, maybe more before adding a light day. I'll add chins and alternate DL/PC, that will help with recovery, DL feels strong, so 150 will be doable. Bench still feels strong.

    Round numbers, I love them... Everything was descent, as I said I BBQed the whole weekend and seemed to be recovered pretty good. Got a 4" belt on saturday, it helped me squatting today. Much better drive out of the hole.

    Session #22

    Missed my Wednesday due to activities with my family. We were out an about till late in the evening tue-thu, so I just skipped it... Today I was torn between repeating Mondays workout or to do what was planned. I decided for the latter, because I wanted to hit a BW squat.
    Squat was good, press feels a bit heavy, PCs were ok.
    But, guess what? I came home, put my self on the scale and: 104.5 Kg BW, 2kg more than last week. Fuck. So BW squat will happen next week. Interesting is that my waist shrinks, overall body fat drops and I gain weight.
