there was practically a damn wait-list for the leg press. Hack Squats are simply not for me. I hate the movement and I'm literally doing less than half of what I'd do on a v-squat.

A lady just told me that I've lost a lot of weight and that I look different. She then started screaming "WHY?" and asked why I felt the need to do that. I tried explaining cutting and bulking to her but she wasn't trying to hear that.


FWIW she also tells me that she's a prestigious judge and that her son plays for the New Orleans Pelicans. 😂

Looks like you come a ways on this from a few months ago. Have you tried heavier to see if you beat any old weights?

I'm thinking about it. My belief was that as my weight goes down, my strength will go down. But repping the 70s these past few months as @PZT advised seems to have offset a lot of the strength loss. I'm curious to try the 90s and 95s now.

I think I'll have to wait until I'm bulking to hit the 100s, but who knows.

Sometimes it’s just the change in stimulus in my experience. Best for strength is heavy, until you’ve done it too long.

6/2: Legs

I finally hit the gym with that girl I used to work out with. We did a mostly lighter leg day to get her back into the swing of things and to get myself less one dimensional.

I didn't get my usual Isopure shake in, so I fell short on my protein intake. Gotta do better overall today.

I like how many more people are open about their autism and don’t need to hide it anymore. It’s good we can have severely autistic women in high positions in the court. Truly an equal society now

LOL 😂

The funny thing is, the store I work at is right down the street from the county courthouse. So I guess she thinks that makes it more believable

Scratch that, yeah that back routine is terrible. Only really one good back movement in there. Try going with….

1 vertical pull for the lats
1 vertical pull for the upper back
1 horizontal pull for the lats
1 horizontal pull for the upper back

Should be good after hitting those hard in the same work out
