Cool. You must feel awesome after some of those days, lol.

I appreciate you looking into it. TBH I am not diving into it full-on as I was before at this point for obvious reasons, but I am still incorporating some kind of daily squat to at least grease the groove. Any perspective from the gurus of that philosophy is great.

IIRC the first time around I would alternate heavy belted low-bar squats with lighter no-belt HB, front squats, or SSB squats. I’m pretty sure I did bench on heavy days and back assistance work on light days, and deadlifted 1x/week. I was for sure ego-lifting though – I’d get in the zone and run off of nerves on a daily basis which obviously wasn’t sustainable and did a lot of grinding lifts as a result. You actually made a great point which I remember from back then when you made the distinction between testing strength and training strength – I was definitely testing it.

So far, I have been doing my regular 4 day split in the morning, and doing 10 easy front squat singles supersetted with pullups or chins every day at lunch. I only really have a half hour to work with at lunch so I can’t go overboard, and I have a ton of time to milk linear progression as my elbow heals. I think there’s a ton of merit to the high-frequency method, though – both from my own confirmation bias and what I’ve seen in others.

Nice guy but he was quite stern with these loud arrogant crossfit guys who did a drop in.

According to a calorie calculator I should be now eating 1900 kcals, so I'm dropping my daily intake by 100. Though my diet's been rocky because I've had two days in the past ~3 weeks where I went off diet, and also have been drinking (within diet but fucks with water weight). Being on diet's tough through a move because everyone wants to go drink or eat with me before I leave haha. Will prob have the same problem when I get there, too.

I'm always lighter after a night out drinking. Hello dehydration

My diet is so not moving anywhere... girl I date bought me Macarons, then we bought chocolate at a swiss chocolatier, then I bought more Macarons. Will now substitute all ice cream with frozen yogurt and all other sweets with soy based vanille & chocolate pudding (100g = 84kcal). Training also stagnant. But I'm having sex so I'll say that cardio is hindering my gains fing02[1].gif . Earlier this week I have that Freeletics app a try because I think I could use some better cardio performance in general... obviously you're not supposed to do it on the same day as lifting (thought I die), so I'm not sure how I can implement that into my week.

Vacation in 7 days. Can't wait to get to the beach even though it will actually be less warm than here in Germany. Already dug out my gym membership card for the gym over there (which is better equipped than the one here but only costs 1/3).

Kinda bummed I didn't make it to sixpack abs... will have to play the gringo blanco con cualto card.

Started lifting again so there's that. Diets shit cause I'm going to all the first year events for free food and also cause I'm essentially squatting in someone else's room while my apartment opens up.

The gym here has classes and spin bikes. Might get in on that yoga and spin train. Want to get some muscle back first though...

You are at Dan Green's gym, right? How many famous lifters have been through there?

I'm at the point now where I'm dieting by mirror rather than the scale. My waist hasn't been this small since college. Still not even close to a 6 pack but I def have "abs" now.

Not that many surprisingly. Stan Efferding and Flex Wheeler stopped by once a couple years ago (before I joined). Brandon Lilly's been there a few times. Marte Elverum of IPF fame dropped in for a couple days. Kim Walford was the head judge at the USAPL meet we had a couple months ago.

I'm actually in Vegas for work. I stopped by Broz's gym so I could get some squats in, but they have plenty of other equipment in there to get strong and jacked.

I might try doing those, but worry about my back. Might do them in the end after other exercises so I'm forced to go light. Thanks!

So does not looking like shit. Seriously, I'm feeling so exhausted with all the moving around right now with school and not having my own place yet. I can't wait to hunker down, study my ass off, and work out like a mofo. According to surveys for the class last year, people had about 3-4 free hours for leisure every day. So fucking sweet. That's so much better than back home. Seriously though. 
 
I might try getting into doing 2 a day's for cardio in the AM and lifting between/after classes.
