    Ya pretty stoked about progress! Stress is low, and I'm finally getting some good sunlight exposure, so that's only going to help drive my energy flow.

    Nice! I'll have to check out your log. How is your diet? Try to get a ton of seafood in, as balancing the Omega-3/Omega-6 ratio is critical for cell membrane function and neuromuscular function. Helps keep inflammation at bay. Also maybe try to add more collagen/glycine to balance out your methionine (important for methylation).

    Congrats on baby coming! Take good care of your family. Family always first.

    Bodyweight: 170.4 lbs

    Week 22 - Workout 3:

    Squat: 315x5, 300x5, 285x5
    OHP: 142.5x5x2, 142.5x4
    Chins: BWx5, 30x5x2

    Notes:

    Another great workout! I'm training instinctively so as to keep making progress adding weight to the bar. My first 2 sets on squats were very near failure, but I grinded out the last rep, so I'm now doing 1x5 followed by 1x5 @ 95% and, 1x5 @ 90%.

    OHP went very well on first set, but by the end I was gassed and missed my last rep. I'll try 145 next week and if the same thing happens, I may begin back-off sets on OHP.

    Week 23 - Workout 1:

    Squat:
    320x4
    305x5
    290x5

    Bench:
    227.5x5x3

    Row:
    190x5x2

    Notes:

    Failed my 5th rep on squats, but it's OK. I went to bed late last night, and didn't have the best sleep since I had watched some disturbing facts about what's been going on in the world. Another factor is that I'm changing my schedule from Tue/Thu/Sat to Mon/Wed/Fri, so I missed a recovery day. I'll re-attempt on Wednesday, and I'm sure I'll hit 320x5. Pretty stoked regardless considering my 1 rep max was 320 a month ago!

    Everything else went smoothe, and I still had great energy and focus during my workout.

    Bodyweight: 170.6 lbs

    Week 23 - Workout 2:


    Squat:
    320x5
    305x5
    290x5

    OHP:
    145x4
    145x3x2

    Deadlift:
    415x5

    Notes:

    Got my 320x5 squats! OHP was tough today... Not sure if I was gassed from squats or what. I think I'll attempt 145 again for 5 next week, and if it fails, I'll switch to 3x3.

    So happy about my deadlift! It feels great to see that number moving.

    I've been doing more fasting lately, and going to see if I can drop a few lbs while continuing to gain strength. Given how efficient my metabolism is, my hunger is non-existence, so I'm just wondering if I can get away with less food, because it feels kind of ridiculous to forcefeed myself. As soon as we get a little warmer weather and the snow fully melts, I'll be moving my gym to the garage, and will open my pool. Can't wait!

    Week 23 - Workout 3:

    Squat:
    325x4
    295x5x2

    Bench:
    230x5x3

    Chins:
    BWx5
    32.5x5x2

    Notes:

    Aww my squat progress is slowing down I think... It's probably time to add the light squat day. I was SUPER close to making my last rep out of the hole, I think it was more of a mind game. I dropped both back-off sets at 90% rather than 95% and 90%. As long as I can continue to add weight to the bar consistently, I'm happy, and I know it may slow down. I've been eating a lot less calories and doing longer fasts, so I'm very pleased with my progress and I know I can keep this up as long as I go slow.

    Got all my bench reps!

    Week 24 - Workout 1:

    Squat:
    325x4
    295x5

    OHP:
    145x4x3

    Row:
    195x5x2

    Notes:

    Gahh squats were tough today... I regressed for sure. Last Friday I just BARELY missed rep #5, but this morning, I didn't even attempt rep #5 because I BARELY got rep #4. I was so gassed, I didn't bother with a 3rd set.

    OHP went better than last week, but I didn't hit my 5 reps. I think I'm going to switch OHP to 3x3 at this point and continue to progress.

    I will begin light squat day this week and re-attempt 325 on Friday.

    Week 25 - Workout 1:

    Squat:

    290x5

    Bench:
    220x5

    Row:

    175x5

    Notes:

    Took a little break last week as my head was not in the game. I moved my gym to the garage, and had my first workout there on a beautiful sunny day! I did a mini reset, and am going to work my way back up over the next couple weeks. I think at that point I will switch over to either Texas Method, or continue with dropsets (-5%) on all sets. I like short rests, and aiming for a new 5RM on top sets.

    Now that I'm yielding more sunlight and outdoor time, I'm much less hungrier (not that I had much hunger anyways), so I'm going to focus on my training and using sunlight, grounding and water to maintain my energy flow so I can make some progress on minimal calories. It will be an interesting experiment!

    Another great workout! I've been eating less calories too, although weight seems stable. It was cold and snowy this morning, but I have a little 800 watt infrared heater. Doesn't do much, but helps keep my hands warm. Looking forward to the warm weather!

    Another awesome workout! It's great being out in the garage in the fresh air. Went for a dip in my pool after which is not technically open yet. It's about 40 F. Here's a pic:
