Dang, that's beast!

Certainly a lot more volume than I have been doing, especially considering the past few weeks I've basically been hitting the main lifts and calling it good.  But I really didn't like missing my goals during my 1RM testing regardless of why it happened.  Plus I'm the one that opted for using this template out of all the options in Beyond 5/3/1 so I have no one to blame but myself.  Not sure how it's going to go with DL after work but even though I am increasing the volume on DL it won't be as much a I did for OHP and the others.  Off the top of my head I know the drop sets for DL are 5 sets of 2-3 reps as opposed to 5-8 reps for the others.

I did get my bench and squat workout in on 8/29, well most of it, just haven't updated.  Of course now that I've changed my routine to a longer, more intense versio of 5/3/1, I won't be able to go to the gym as often.  The gf hit a deer Tuesday morning and until she can get her car fixed or get insurance to spring for a rental we are down to one car so I need to head home immediately after work M-F so that she can get to work.  I will start one of the 2 day 5/3/1 templates until further notice and if it more than a week or two I will start over with the beyond 5/3/1 template from the beginning, if it is less than that then I will just pick up where I left off.

She wasn't injured, just annoyed.  She didn't even kill the deer so I couldn't salvage any meat.  This not going to the gym thing sucks, but like I told her, I'd rather she be able to drive to work in a safe vehicle even if that means I don't get to go to the gym.

Well... It's been so long since I've been on the forums i don't remember where I left off.  Biggest thing that's obviously happened is i have a little girl.  She 17 months old and keeps me on my toes.  Still working security at the hospital, but in on 2nd shift as a supervisor which certainly comes with its own unique challenges.  I was promoted 5 months ago and made it to the gym for about 3 weeks until I was working a shit ton of overtime covering for another supervisor on days that fucked off and left us hanging, 3 months later and his sick/vacation time is gone and he's run out of FMLA time so they were looking at disciplinary actions then he just stopped calling in so now they are pursuing job abandonment. I got sick of covering his time and they took a guy off my shift to fill his spot temporarily which has left me short.

With the nonsense at work and stepping on the scale and realizing I've gained nearly 100lbs in the last two years i was nearing my breaking point. I was starting to let work come home with me and my temper was flaring up with my daughter and girlfriend, finally decided that enough was enough. I'm down nearly 20lbs and am back in the gym.

Last week was week 1, I focused solely on lifting. Sticking with 5/3/1 this cycle will be first set last.  This coming week I'm going to add some cardio; it'll primarily be kettlebell swings, prowler, or stationary bike. In the following weeks I'll had some accessory work to strengthen my week areas.

Well that's about it for now, not sure how often I'll update, but I'll shoot for weekly at least.

Weekly update, only got 2 of my planned lifting days in this week.  Squats on Wednesday and Bench on Thursday.  Was supposed to deadlift Friday and Press Saturday but since I have to work a long shift on home football games I planned to combine them on Saturday same as last week.  Unfortunately after the long hours and energy drinks, which I've been trying to stay away from, combined with running my ass off Friday due to patients being crazy; I did not get my work out in Saturday night.  No more home games for the next 3 weeks and only two more this season, so the coming weeks should go a bit more smoothly.  Except I probably just jinxed myself of course.  

@Terahmy little one is growing like crazy, she's tall for her age and full of personality.

She does.  Woke me up extra early today, she usually sleeps in for me, only to fall asleep and take a nap in my lap.  Of course she did so in a way that I could not also take a nap so I'm running on about 4 hours of sleep today.

Oh I’m not complaining. My little gremlin has spoiled me. She’s slept through the night with a handful of exceptions since she was 2 or 3 months old. Plus since I’ve moved to 2nd shift she’s even been sleeping in on me, for every day she’s up at 0700 there are a couple days she sleeps until 1030. She’s cutting some molars right now so she doesn’t feel well but otherwise I’ve been very lucky with her.
