    I might change up the order of my lifts, maybe deadlift first...And try to increase that lift on Monday, then increase squat on Thursday. I'm also going to try to add another set @100 to my bench(can do 2x5 now, want to go for 3x5 before dropping to 95)

    Yea that's the thing with SC.. he has you doing the bridges and hip thrusts first, sometimes it kills your other lifts!

    Decided to join this thread instead of just lurking :) I'm currently in my second bulk. Up about 5 pounds in 14 weeks so far - deliberately going slower than my first time. Lifts going up steadily too. It's really motivating following everyone's progress!

    After the squat fail last week, and the mental block/fear following, I did much better this week. Rocked my squats and looking forward to next week. Should I stay or increase weight? Or just increase by a set or rep per set?

    That is awesome!

    I feel like we need a thread for cutting as well. I'm officially off the gain train again as of tomorrow, probably cutting for quite a while. Meh. :|

    I'm a horrible human being- I haven't lifted since last thursday because of my car situation.

    I know them feels. If I miss a session, it gets made up for. If I miss multiple, my body's getting fekkin rekt.

    Yeah, I don't get it either. Certainly not bulking right now....and certainly not a "bishe" but this is a great, insightful thread

    I feel your pain. I am having a hell week. My aunt passed away and on the sam day my MIL was hospitalized with pneumonia. And the icing on the cake is my son just got sick all over the bedroom. And i havent lifted in several days.

    You win the suck award- so sorry to hear that- hopefully next weeks looks up for you!!

    For me-I got to squat- I backed my weight down to 185 for my 20 reps. I'm glad I did- I could have easily gone to 175 or 180 and been very comfortable. My 185 looked like complete shite. so was a good decision- legs feel good today.
    BUT:
    I did a crazy shoulder workout with a friend after my actual programmed lift. It was hard- tons of reps-like- tons. I knew I was going to be sore today- but holy crap- I'm not just sore- my left lateral deltoid feels like I got the polio vaccine shot in my arm. it's just- like numb and achy- tomorrow I suspect the real soreness to set in HA.

    I did take some "progress" pictures- this marks Nov, Dec, Jan- full 3 months- I feel a little behind on calories- but I'm staying the course- I'm hovering around 175-177 which is good. Jumping up 150-200 every month seems to be working pretty well.

    And one final thought- I know I won't be able to eat till much later as I have 2 dance workshops and I was in a hurry this morning- so fruit and nut granola bar with a slab of PB on it. that's food right?!? HA- nomnomnom- I have one more granola bar for later. because I know I'll need it.

    Thanks. She is starting to recover.

    Probably so. I use Happy Scale for that reason. My weight varies so much it's ridiculous. If I have a day where I live on protein bars and shakes, I could see a four pound difference in the morning, versus a day where I ate mostly whole foods.

    Well, it's over for me! Today I'm back to the cut. I gained 20 lbs and feel great about it, although that last 5 lbs was probably nothing but fat. Whatever. I'm hungry. I need to get some pics for comparison before I take off too much weight - I totally forgot to take them yesterday.

    I was thinking about that the other day - if the last little bit of weight gain is going to be mostly fat. I am going to see where I am at once I am back home. Not having my scale has been a bit of a guessing game.

    It won't be necessarily. The reason it was for me was because I was eating WAY more than I needed to. At an average of 2500 - 2700/day I was gaining 0.5/week, but the last month I was eating well over 3k/day. It didn't have to be that way, but I was having too much fun.

    Even hubby asked me today if I lost weight. Is it that obvious? Jeez....I'm only 1lb above my low weight before "bulking" after Thanksgiving. I told him I ate this weekend. I was out of town. Mexican food (chips and salsa and a beer too) and a packet of peanut m&ms for dessert Friday night, TX Roadhouse (steak, potato, veggies, rolls, and a beer) Saturday. Had a sbux with whipped cream on the way home Sunday.
