Arms tonight for Flex. The pump was just silly. I blame the muffins. Enjoy your training everyone!
Trying to get over an ilness where I have just felt beat, drained, ran the fuck down all week. I got two workouts in but they were shit. I thought for sure I would be feeling better to hit arms after work tonight, but got home and instantly passed out without evening attempting to get ready. Just woke up. Inb4 dear diary.. Hold me meso!!!
First week of the "Texas method"
Squat 80% of 1rm x 5
Bench 80% of 1rm x 5

Accessorie work can be done lightly on other days. Still love to pump up the biceps and deltoids.

MWF: NPP at 200mg
tren A 50mg ED
adex 1mg EOD .5mg in between

^ Good deal. I love switching back to a good structured strength routines. The Texas method sent my squat through the roof when I first tried it.
Aww shit, the skanks on the PL side. I got some great PRs running the TM last year. Good luck.
Today I ran the following:
Squat 80% 1RM 6 sets x 2 reps
Front Squat 80% 1RM 6 sets x 3 reps
Glute/Ham/Gastrocnemius Machine 85% 1RM 3 Sets x 5 reps

Standing Press 85% 1 RM 5 Sets x 5 Reps
Nose Crushers 70% 1RM 3 Sets x 8 Reps

Thanks bro! Ya man. I got the PL FEVER! Wish I started a little earlier tho. My cycle ends in 8 weeks and I got 11 more weeks of Texas. I'm already pushing it running tren for 12 weeks. I'm hyped tho!!!
No lie, I'm seeing results after my first week. Not dramatic, but I feel stronger already. I'm having a blast doing it too.
Squat and DL today. Strong and focused, new PR coming up very soon on my DL. Need to work more on squat technique....don't hit depth, parallel if that on max
Leg day for me
For the squat, proper technique is more important to muscle development than the amount of weight used. Failure to go down in the hole to parallel and beyond will rob your glutes and hamstrings of the stress they incur in a deep squat as well as the adaptive stress that you are placing on your joints. The last one is really important if you wish to avoid injury.
Cheers man. I have had half a hamstring removed and reconstructive knee surgery. My right hip tend to dip Down below the left and rob my strength below parallell. What I should do is get some weights off that thing and just practice going heavier down in the hole. Practice, practice, practice. Totally agree, injury is the last thing I need.
Had a great bench day 5by5. 3 reps away from New PL. Did some halfhearted incline bench, finished off With some deep dips. Good workout, Product of good eating yesterday. Man, I'm up to 220 pounds again though, and that ain't all musclefiber.
Had a motivation blip doing squats this morning. Warmed up With the bar, then loaded 75% on, and on the first rep, I was like get-me-the-fuck-out-of-here. It felt like moving Mountains. Absolutely no motivation. Did 5 sets of 10 reps With 50% on just to piss myself off whilst listening to gangster rap. Got the pump, struck a pose before I left, felt proper BB today. Day off tomorrow, heading off to one of my favorite Commercial gyms Wednesday and Thursday to watch them ladies doing squatties, oh yearh !
You got some serious competition brother..all the more the merrier
