Still weighed in at 199 lbs. today. I’m not particularly concerned because I am still noticing differences in appearance (minor, but anything that’s actually visible isn’t insubstantial, as long as it’s not all in your head…which it might be). There could be a couple of reasons, the most obvious being water retention, either because I’m not drinking enough (very possible, I was going through a Monster Zero obsessed phase), or related to increasing my squat weight and more dips. As I said, it’s not a concern, and won’t be unless I’m still sitting at the same weight with no visible changes early next week. I may drop the carb up for next week though, and see what happens.

In hindsight, finals may not have been the best time to do this diet. Pretty sure the diet causes the body to stress some, and then finals stress, and other stress compound to make it not quite as effective. We’ll see though.

Overhead Press

145 (+0) – 3×5 – 5, 5, 4

Just couldn’t get it. It is finals time and I didn’t get as much sleep last night as I’d prefer, so that might have caused it. There was no big regression, so I will try again on Sunday after two days of rest and my cheat meal.

High Bar Squat

145 (+0) – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5

Stuck to this weight because I spent a lot of time out in the cold yesterday and today, which causes my tendinitis to flare up a bit. It could also be related to the squats on Tuesday, so I figured I would play it safe. Aleve tonight!

Weighted Chin-ups


Planned to do some tonight, but got distracted chatting with someone, and I have a final to study for.
