531 Cycle 3, week 1

DL
135x5
155x5
185x3
205x5
235x3
265x8 (5+)

BBB
Squats
125x3x10 <--only 3 sets today

Was feeling sick and nauseous last night and not feeling so great today either. Got the deads done and moved into the BBB squats. Got a bit queasy feeling after the 2nd set. Did the 3rd set and was dizzy and nauseous. Had to sit down. Feeling didn't pass for 10 mins. I called it after that, as even standing back up left me a bit dizzy.

Sounds like you may be catching what is going around in my area. I was sick, my grandson was sick now my son is sick. It seems to be that time of year.

Take it easy tonight and get as much rest as possible.

I think it's something my youngest and I ate. We both had the same issues at the same time. He's home from school while I'm at work. Might be wrong but I'm hoping it's not a virus.

Well I guess that would be a better option since it should pass soon. Either way hope you both feel better real soon.

Decent day in the gym. Slept good last night.
Upped my cals a bit. Even though I trimmed quite a bit of body fat off myself, I still have a ways to go.......but, I'm mentally tired with being in a deficit. So, while up the cals a bit each week, see where I taper off weight loss and move into a small bulk for a while.

Nice Benching!

When I'm losing weight, I'll sometimes take a week or 2 break where I eat at maintenance before returning to a deficit.  Staying at a deficit too long mess with me, and these little breaks help me stay on track.  It's amazing how much more energy you have just going back to maintenance calories!

I have to do something. I've slipped up for most of Sept simply because I'm tired of being in a deficit (since around May). May just increase until I hit maintenance and hold for a while. Let myself mentally reset so to speak.

531 Cycle 3, week 2

OHP
BBx10
55x5
70x5
85x3
95x3
110x3
125x8 (3+) <-vid below

BBB
BP

Rear delt flys
15x3x12

Side delt raise
15x15
20x12
25x10

Front delt raise

Felt pretty darn good today.  Been consistent with cals and it's amazing what an extra 300 cals per day can do to make you feel good.
I think another cycle or two and I'll definitely be working with the big boy plates right after warm up.

Great job on the OHP.

It confuses me how my other lifts are pretty ok but yet my squats sucks so bad.

I know you have to squat more to squat more but even when I did I still on hit a max of 255. :dunno:

I hit a max of 275 back early this year. That was when I was eating what I wanted and doing SL5x5, so squats 3x week. Had made it up to 225x5x5.
Did something to my left knee (hyperextended or something) and had to back off for a couple months. Then it was a slow grind to make it back up.

I think, for me, it's that I don't have much in the way of muscle mass in my legs. Calves are okay but not much in the way of hamstrings or quads.
That's why I'm thinking of hitting more volume workouts starting with the new year. By that time I should be in a surplus for cals (or at least I hope I am).
