    Did manage to get my leg day in last night and push #2 in this morning

    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Push Day #2
    Bench, OHP, Lateral Raises, DB Incline Press, Push Ups, Tricep Extensions, Shrugs

    Assessment: Baked buffalo chicken kale salad last night, unsure on dinner plan with in-laws tonight. Need to buck this trend of switching between -500 calorie days and +2-500 calorie days and get consistently in a deficit if I want to see any meaningful fat loss.

    Fridays are good but are even better when you have the day off from work and leads into a long weekend for Australia Day tomorrow. So it's a public holiday on Monday. Winning!

    Taking the weekend off to catch up with mates and family, sink a few cold ones.

    Cardio: Neat focused 14k steps

    strength: BB bent row, Goblet squats, push ups, DB Romanian Deadlift, lat pulldown, Dan upright row, low to high cable chop, arm walk out = 4 sets / 10 - 15 rep range.

    Assessment: Having a dirty burger from opportos for dinner.

    Friday means pull day #2 for the week. Had a work lunch unexpectedly yesterday but had some good pizza. Buffalo chicken salad for dinner so I managed to be only slightly over maintenance, but way up on sodium so the scale jumped up this morning, messing with my average for the week.

    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Deadlifts, BB rows, pull ups, curls

    Assessment: Dinner with my parents tonight, everything pre-logged for the day already, should be able to stay on target.

    Hope everyone had a good weekend. Got my Saturday workout in as planned before some friends came over the in afternoon. However, between the baby and just general wear/tear I'm deciding to drop my volume back to 5 days from 6, so back to a modified PHUL template. Going to run U-L-U-L-U to fill out the week and work on what I perceive to be a better aesthetic upper/lower body balance. I have somewhat of a short torso and have always felt I carry more weight in my legs.

    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Upper Hypertrophy
    Flat Bench, Barbell Rows, Lateral Raises, Incline DB Press, OHP, Curls, Pull ups

    Assessment: Could not seem to stop stuffing my face yesterday; impromptu breakfast out with my in-laws and too much snacking. Spaghetti & Meatballs for dinner last night, chicken tonight.

    Hey soldiers,

    Happy Tuesday! High heat and humidity had me sweating like a *kitten* in church through today's workout. It was ugly and ran out of juice towards the back end of the workout and struggled through to get it done.

    Cardio: 20 min walk post workout

    Strength: DB row, DB step up, Push ups, BB RDL, Lat pulldown neutral grip, zombie squats, DB bicep curls, Decline crunches = 4sets / 10-15 rep range.

    Assessment:Omelette for dinner. I'll be under Cal's as I can't eat any more. Might try liquid Cal's before bed to get my numbers up.

    Hey gang

    I like myself unconditionally!

    It's only Tuesday? Seems like a long week already. Little Weasel has been sleeping a little better over the last few nights so maybe we're into the homestretch of the newborn phase. Trying a new alarm app to get me out of bed better, will take some getting used to and may require some tweaking; I still stayed in bed too long and had to rush a little through my lifting, no chance to incorporate cardio if I don't have the time before I have to head to work.

    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Lower body Power day
    Back Squats, RDLs, Deadlifts, Power Cleans
    Only doing 115 on Power cleans as they're a new move for me. Need to practice that form, though I felt like I improved over the three sets I did today. I can't seem to get the right wrist flexion on the catch to have my elbows out like you're supposed to; same issue whenever I try to do front squats too (so I just don't).

    Assessment: Chicken, broccoli w/ Frank's red hot sauce last night. Snacked on some peanut butter I didn't really need but still under on calories. Eggs, sausage and toast on the docket for dinner tonight. Teaching a training class at our corporate office this afternoon, hopefully I won't get stuck in too much traffic commuting from a different part of town.

    Thanks, @ninerbuff. Through the worst of it for this polar vortex at least. High up in the 30s today, 59 and sunny by Sunday. The variability is killing me though, going to be back to low 30s and snow by next Friday if the extended forecast is to be believed. The big pressure swings mess with my sinuses and can make lifting first thing in the morning untenable.

    Happy Friday, all.

    Cardio: n/a

    Strength: Upper Body - Hypertrophy
