    Hell...i would even say it feels so damn good im considering looking into one of those foam rollers cuz i feel like hitting legs would be substantially easier with one of those.

    I never really realized how much of a difference it could make, but hell i think it would definitely be a good purchase now, i went to town on my lower back with that ball and i feel pretty incredible working some of that tightness out.

    I don't preach the mobility and stretching for nothing big dawg it's the difference for me of deadlifting 365 and 550 if I'm tight I'm useless and injury prone gotta stay loose and limber

    Feelin good! Really needed that 185 double for a confidence boost hahha. The second rep was a grinder but it was clean, didnt break form and my ass stayed in the seat. I believe ice hit 185 for a a double before but i was 35 pounds heavier and on the old juice. So shit yeah, pretty happy with that. Weighed at 279 so havent lost or gained much, but it seems like i do that where i kinda sit in one place for a bit and then one day i will check and i'll have lost like 3-4lbs.

    Missing that second set at 315 was incredibly demoralizing, im hoping its just a bad day, but im sure its probably just me getting weaker. Goddamn..

    On the plus side i an getting leaner, starting to be able to see veins in my quads now. Obviously they are popping, im not that lean, but just visible under the skin so atleast im making progress there.

    Still, i miss being strong. gonna go to the beach and obsess over and beat myself up over missing that rep, and see xif i cant get rid of this farmers tan im rocking haha

    I really think it's time to hop on a structured program bud, you aren't going to make the progress you want with the brosplits anymore even during a calorie deficit something as simple as stronglifts 5x5 would benifit greatly with where you are. Has enough volume for growth and retention but also the intensity level you'd want to bring some strength back into it. Starting with 70% of your 5rm then allowing linear growth to push you to your current 5rm even during the cut would make you equally as strong as you are now in 5-6 weeks but you'd also be 5-6 weeks leaner.

    I think you're, actually, i think i probably should have done that a month ago when you asked if i was going to get back on a program haha. You're smarter than the average bear, and i make poorer choices than the average human.

    But yeah, you think 5x5 would be a good choice?

    Strong lifts has a good app for the phone making it super easy to follow and record it's all automatic and you can add your own 4th day in on Saturday for accesory work (your bro day for arms and shoulders let's say or for me I rotated what day I did like if I benched Friday id deadlift Saturday and vice versa) if you want to make a bit more of a customized program but working within the parameters of a general 5x5 like stronglifts and starting strength hit me up in PM would be proud to help get ya onto something custom for what you want strength/performance and vanity wise.
