  1. better late than never to see this huh? goo thing we have several avenues to communicate these days
  2. i know, i know, i've been away for 2 months. i've still been training, except for the last two days. i've been incredibly busy the last couple weeks and was officially promoted this Monday. my diet has suffered a bit, but i'm still sitting around 205lbs, so i can't complain a ton. just know i miss you guys and i will creep you from time to time, even if i don't post much. side note: the punk band has been picking up some steam. played our first official show two weeks ago and got a pretty good reception for our efforts. the metal band is still working on recording.
  3. i'm here, i'm here lol. life's been a little hectic lately. good news, i'm finally going back to day shift soon. more good news, the Kayfabe album is gonna be dropping in the next month or so. bad news, my diet has been a bit of shit the last month. i need to dial that back in. i've justified it by stating "i need to gain about 10 lbs", which isn't a lie. but i've been using it as an excuse to eat garbage instead of the good foods i know i need to consume. gonna carve out some time to hit the grocery store this weekend and get that back on track.
  4. yesterday was back and today was chest. shoulder still feels a little janky, but i'm managing. finally eating all the things. i've been going ham and not having any restrictions on what i consume since late last friday. this will continue until monday, in which i will start to eat a bit more cleanly but not in a deficit. bring on the gains.
  5. no workouts since last thursday. i did manage to play a shit ton of cornhole this weekend and get a very nice sunburn all over my upper body. diet this weekend/today? complete trash. two cookouts and all the food lined up perfectly for my diet to end tomorrow, gonna start eating a bit more cleanly again, but still be relatively laxed for the next week or so. then i'll really dial things back in starting on a muscle building program i think. don't get me wrong, i'm quite pleased with all the progress i've made, but i think i'm a little too small at 190lbs. i'd like to build up to a lean 200-205. as long as i don't get pudgy with it, i'll be happy. tomorrow, i'll do a back workout, but i'm not going to track it like i've been doing the last 6 months(or two weeks on here). i'm just going to go by feel. i've found that i respond well when i follow a program for a bit and then stay lifting, but give myself a break from diligently tracking all my workouts and macros.
  6. i feel like this is relevant. i always remember this line whenever i'm trying to get going and can't seem to find my footing.
  7. 5.27 chest machine incline chest press: 3 sets - drop sets only receive 1 sec rest per rep between initial set and drop set(for all workouts) 14 reps at 120 lbs- drop set 5 reps 100 lbs 10 reps at 100 lbs - drop set 10 reps 100 lbs 20 reps at 80 lbs machine chest press: 10 reps at 85 lbs- drop set 5 reps 85 lbs 10 reps at 70 lbs - drop set 10 reps 70 lbs 20 reps at 55 lbs cable crossovers: 10 reps at 50 lbs- drop set 5 reps 50 lbs 10 reps at 40 lbs - drop set 10 reps 40 lbs 20 reps at 30 lbs calf press: 10 reps at 220 lbs- drop set 5 reps 220 lbs 10 reps at 235 lbs - drop set 10 reps 235 lbs 20 reps at 235 lbs bonus sets of machine flys cable crossovers: 10 reps at 100 lbs 10 reps at 130 lbs 15 reps at 130 lbs 20 mins on stationary bike was definitely feeling weak today. attributing that to the lack of carbs this week. luckily only have today and tomorrow left of keeping carbs at 40g per day. also, for those interested, here's a teaser for Kayfabe until our album is released this summer
  8. 5.26 Legs Leg Extensions: 3 sets - drop sets only receive 1 sec rest per rep between initial set and drop set(for all workouts) 14 reps at 130 lbs- drop set 5 reps 130 lbs 10 reps at 145 lbs - drop set 10 reps 130 lbs 20 reps at 100 lbs Leg press: 10 reps at 205 lbs- drop set 5 reps 205 lbs 10 reps at 235 lbs - drop set 10 reps 220 lbs 20 reps at 200 lbs Seated leg curls: 10 reps at 130 lbs- drop set 5 reps 130 lbs 10 reps at 120 lbs - drop set 10 reps 120 lbs 20 reps at 105 lbs single leg lying leg curls: 10 reps at 45 lbs- drop set 5 reps 45 lbs 10 reps at 30 lbs - drop set 10 reps 30 lbs 20 reps at 15 lbs legs were toast by the time i got to single leg curls. then did 15 mins on stationary bike. good news though, tomorrow is the final day of this program. so this weekend i can lax a little on my diet. today and tomorrow I'm only allowed 53g of complex carbs, so this weekend i'm planning a big re-feed. planning on just doing some maintenance lifting the next few weeks then i'll likely begin a muscle building program. I'm already a little lighter in weight than i expected to be or would like. all that said, i can't complain with the results i've gotten this year. i've lost 52lbs since Jan 1 and i'd say at least 85% of that was fat loss.

  12. glad your pup is feeling better man. don't worry too much about the food thing. we all fall down sometimes, the important thing is that you get back up. 1 day of set backs food wise isn't going to be detrimental. keep your head up, and start fresh tomorrow.

  14. can't like this post enough. huge win her brother. i used this program earlier this year and had some pretty solid results. dropped some fat and gained a decent amount of muscle. admittedly, i did use every supplement suggested, but personally don't feel it's necessary. Even Kris Gethin states that supplements will only account for 3-5% of your progress at most. https://www.kagedmuscle.com/blogs/muscle-building-trainer/mbt-overviews-program
  15. pretty happy with the shoulder workout. been dealing with a nagging shoulder strain for the last few weeks. seems like it's finally on the mend 5.18 Shoulders & Triceps Seated front dumbbell raises: 3 sets - drop sets only receive 10 sec rest between initial set and drop set(for all workouts; weight listed per dumbbell) 10 reps at 15 lbs 10 reps at 20 lbs - drop set 10 reps 15 lbs 10 reps at 20 lbs - drop set 20 reps 15 lbs - 10 reps 15 lbs Dumbbell Lat raises: 10 reps at 20 lbs 10 reps at 20 lbs - drop set 10 reps 15 lbs 10 reps at 20 lbs - drop set 20 reps 15 lbs - 10 reps 15 lbs machine rows: 10 reps at 100 lbs 10 reps at 130 lbs - drop set 10 reps 115 lbs 10 reps at 115 lbs - drop set 20 reps 90 lbs - 10 reps 90 lbs Cable rear delt fly/extensions: 10 reps at 30 lbs 10 reps at 40 lbs - drop set 10 reps 30 lbs 10 reps at 30 lbs - drop set 20 reps 20 lbs - 10 reps 20 lbs Dumbbell Shrugs: 10 reps at 50 lbs 10 reps at 65 lbs - drop set 10 reps 55 lbs 10 reps at 65 lbs - drop set 20 reps 50 lbs - 10 reps 50lbs triceps pressdowns: 10 reps at 50 lbs 10 reps at 65 lbs - drop set 10 reps 55 lbs 10 reps at 65 lbs - drop set 20 reps 50 lbs - 10 reps 50 lbs one arm cable triceps extensions: 10 reps at 20 lbs 10 reps at 15 lbs - drop set 10 reps 10 lbs 10 reps at 15 lbs - drop set 20 reps 10 lbs - 10 reps 10 lbs seated triceps pressdowns: 10 reps at 35 lbs 10 reps at 50 lbs - drop set 10 reps 45 lbs 10 reps at 45 lbs - drop set 20 reps 35 lbs - 10 reps 35 lbs
  16. so, as i stated, my newest band had our first show this past weekend. anyone that knows me or has remotely followed me on here knows i'm a huge wrestling fan. well, so are the bandmates in Kayfabe. in fact, the band itself is all about wrestling. i try to write the lyrics in a way that if you weren't a fan or didn't know much about it you'd never know that's what they were about, but it is. and, thought i'd share a promo pic we did for the gig that is going to be a theme for all shows as far as we can tell. @DarK_RaideR been saving this for ya. the shirt says "Kayfabemania" in the event it's too small for you to see
  17. i didn't, but what i did was, in a way, much much better.
  18. the shirt is a huge win my friend. sometimes, you can be the last to notice a physical change in yourself and the scales aren't always accurate at showing that change either.
  19. have you attempted to set a reminder on your phone to get yourself in bed? maybe set it for about an hour before you need to crash so you can wind down and maybe do some light breathing exercises or meditate?
  20. this weekend, played a shit ton of corn hole and a Kayfabe played our first show at a private house party. everyone was super cool, really fun experience 5.17 back and bis Machine high rows: 3 sets - drop sets only receive 10 sec rest between initial set and drop set(for all workouts) 10 reps at 160 lbs 10 reps at 200 lbs - drop set 10 reps 160 lbs 10 reps at 180 lbs - drop set 20 reps 120 lbs - 10 reps 160 lbs Reverse grip Lat pulldowns: 10 reps at 100 lbs 10 reps at 120 lbs - drop set 10 reps 100 lbs 10 reps at 100 lbs - drop set 20 reps 80 lbs - 10 reps 80 lbs machine rows: 10 reps at 100 lbs 10 reps at 130 lbs - drop set 10 reps 115 lbs 10 reps at 115 lbs - drop set 20 reps 90 lbs - 10 reps 90 lbs Hyperextensions: 10 reps at 135 lbs 10 reps at 175 lbs - drop set 10 reps 175 lbs 10 reps at 205 lbs - drop set 20 reps 175 lbs - 10 reps 175 lbs machine preacher curls: 10 reps at 115 lbs 10 reps at 95 lbs - drop set 10 reps 80 lbs 10 reps at 80 lbs - drop set 20 reps 65 lbs - 10 reps 65 lbs Barbell curls: 10 reps at 50 lbs 10 reps at 50 lbs - drop set 10 reps 40 lbs 10 reps at 40 lbs - drop set 20 reps 30 lbs - 10 reps 30 lbs 20 mins on bike

  22. thanks glad to be back yeah, it's just hard remembering how i was and what i could do vs what i should do now. like, i really miss heavy back squats and deadlifts. those will likely only be moderate weighted lifts from here on out
  23. what type of physio exercises do you do, if you don't mind me asking?
  24. no workout today. had to take the gf to the doc for a post op follow up(nothing major or concerning). next follow up in 10 days. so i'll be resuming my program tomorrow for chest day.
