It's not over until I beat Matty -- Castiel's battle log


Recommended Posts

GTFS Day 2.

 

LBBS:

45x5

45x5

170x3

205x3

225x3

 

Despite having done high intensity squatting yesterday, this was super easy. To be fair, it was light weight and low reps.

 

Bench:

45x5

45x5

95x5

115x3

135x5

145x5

160x5

165x5

175x5

 

All of this was smooth, even the joker sets, but it felt harder than it should have. That said, I've dropped an obcene amount of weight off my bench. I'm using this as an opportunity to make sure I'm pausing every rep.

 

Pull-ups:

7x3

 

 

Fuuuuuck. I need to be able to do more pull-ups. These sucked.

 

 

Cable Crossovers:

25x10x3

 

Because everyone needs a little bit of bro in their workout. I think these are actually going to help me on the bottom of my bench though.

 

 

Other than that, I'm getting my diet back into place (shooting for 3,800cal/day. Very difficult. Need to find some good beer), and I'm starting back on creatine monohydrate.

 

I seem to already be picking up a little water weight from getting active (and possibly already the creatine kicking in over the past few days), because I've been weighing in between 200 and 205. When I out of my program in Italy (where they were starving me to death), I was just under 200lbs.

This makes no sense! Italy has LITERALLY some of the best food in the world!

I would be eating gelato for DAAAYYYYSSSS

I was in a program where we were given two meals a day, and then not given time or opportunity for lunch. It was awful. For the few days I was on my own, I ate very well.

Ohhh that's a huge bummer. :(

Okay, so I forgot to log yesterday, but I did go. Press (and squats, and chins. Shitty day, but I did my work).

 

Today was a bit more fun.

 

GTFS Day 4:

 

SQUATZ!

45x5

45x5 (I always warm up with the bar

135x5

185x5

200x3

225x3

250x1

 

No surprises here, nice and smooth. On to the real work.

 

Cleans

45x5

45x5

95x5

115x3

135x5

155x5

175x5

 

The last rep @175 was really wonky, but I got it up. Count that as a win.

 

Deadlifts

135x5

160x5

190x5

205x5

225x5

235x5

285x5

315x5

 

That's already feeling better than when I pulled 315 last week.

So, apparently I'm incapable of keeping a solid log.

 

Had a solid squat day on Tuesday, followed by reasonable benching on Wednesday. Triples were smooth, and easy. When I get to singles, I'm going to push the weight as far as I can go, and see where I should actually be moving right now.
