Super Destroyer's Battle Log


Recommended Posts

I am adding a battle log at this point to help my accountability. I made the decision about 5 weeks ago to stop trying to lose weight and focus on strength gains. I am up from a low of 219 to 223 as of this morning. I am okay with this because of the strength gains I made. I just want to keep the gain to less than a pound per week.

I started SL 5x5 on November 4, 2013, and am now switched over to 3x5. My working weights are squats, 195, OHP, 95, BP, 160, DL, 265, and row, 125. (Lbs) My 1RM are squats, 220, bench, 180, and DL, 285.

I have two goals for this battle log: 1) Record everything I eat for better accountability, and 2) record my workouts and gains.

Yesterday was a little rough, both workout and diet wise. First, I only got three of my 2nd set of squats at 195 lbs. I did finish the third set, but I will do 3x5x195 again on Saturday. I also failed at bench press after 3 on the first set of 160. That is 89% of my 1RM, so I will try again on next Tuesday. 125 on the row didn't go well either. I did not feel like I was getting it all the way up. Not sure whether to try it again, or drop back.

I usually eat really well right up to evening, and that was true yesterday. However, being bummed out about lifting, and having access to some sweets, made it easier than usual to give in. So I am trying to do better today.

Looks like you had a really great day!!! Keep up the fabulous work!! I think its a good idea to de-load on the bench press and then try again - you don't want to over-fatigue yourself and then risk causing frustration or injury  :joyous:

I may video an attempt at 160 and see if anyone has form tips.

 

I think that's a good plan for sure - maybe we can see something that might be tweaking on your lifts  :joyous:

Sweet Jesus, how did I not see this epic daily log before? I'm so jelly of all your delicious evening snacks. And feel slightly less bad about my equally not-clean evening eating extravaganzas (E-cubed).

 

Maybe I need to get into this business of reporting daily food consumptions. Like in the movie Pink Flamingos directed by John Waters, we can battle for the epic title of Filthiest Person Alive. Experienced, I am, however, for in battles, Super Destroyer conquers all.

 

Now I will click the Follow button.

I think the first 2/3's eating fairly clean balances out the dirty dinner destruction. (D cubed) :)
