Prep work is done.

Have you lifted today? No? Go find something heavy. Pick it up. Now put it back down. Good. Do that a dozen more times.

This is Grizzly, your overlord. I am aware that this board has been dead for quite some time, and that is my fault. I have been very busy with life's endless stream of bullshit and as a result have fallen behind in not just my lifting, but every other meaningful thing I've wanted to do with my life as well. Now that I'm working back into a manageable schedule, I'd like to use this thread for a little experiment.
This thread (and hopefully the ones that come after it) will be a daily journal for anons to chronologue their fitness journeys. After each workout, post what you did, how long you did it, what you did it with, and anything else that happened that pertains to fitness. There is already a similar thread like this one >>32 focused on running, but I would like to expand the workout journal idea to all forms involved, including lifting, cardio, dieting, and anything else that may be of interest to fellow /fit/izens. Yes, it is blogposting and I will not attempt to disguise it as anything else. But it's a good way for anons to share advice with each other on maximizing gainz and bringing up the PPH for the board as a whole.
So with all that being said, tell us about your workout today. You DID lift today, right?

Why are you impersonating Grizzly, faggot. There's nothing faggier than hiding behind someone else's achievements.
Change your BO name, or else.
Got a gym membership today, I'll go in on Wednesday for my first real workout since March of last year. Got a few things to get ready in the next couple of days hence the delay. I've already put down $95 for a down payment and committed for a year so no turning back now.
Continuing to find the right ratio of stuff to put in daily protein shake, right now it's
>two eggs
>whole milk yogurt
>various fruits including bananas, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries
>whole milk for liquidity
today's turned out good but the seeds in the berries are really annoying. i'll add protein powder tomorrow once I begin lifting, that shit's expensive
Cucked out again, didn't have time to go to the gym. Gym bag wasn't ready and I didn't have enough time in the morning to get my shit together, nor did i want to show up to a gym unprepared. Tomorrow for sure.

Finally went today, felt damn good to pick things up and put them down again. Still annoyed at how much mass I've lost over the past year and felt like a beta bitch using nothing but a bar with two 5lb weights for the standing press, but nobody cares what anyone else is doing at a gym. The lifting will continue until gains improve.
Worked out again, had to take a three day break since everything was sore, getting back into it sucks. Did more squats, bench press, power clean, and pullups. Hate how the pullup bars have those rugged grips. I get that it helps to hold onto it but my baby hands aren't calloused enough and it fucking stings afterwards. Need to get gloves next time or something.
Squats, standing press, and deadlift. Increasing weight by five burgerunits each day. Progress is continuing.
Took too long of a break and felt bad about it, lifted hard (squats, bench press, power clean, pullups until fail) and feel fucking great now. If you're thinking about skipping a day, don't do it, you must push yourself to your limits and you will not regret it.
Had the gym to myself today, weird that it was only 4:00 but it felt good that Metallica was just blasting without anybody else around to give two fucks. If you can get a 24hr gym membership do it, it's worth it.
Skipped for two weeks because classes were getting busy, started again today only to have the shits real bad. Getting the ball rolling again fucking sucks.
Went today, felt kind of easy. It's a long way to getting back to the level where I was, which sucks but there's no other way.
Power cleans are a bitch
i'm pretty sure the gym i go to has bars of different weights, when you actually look at them and compare them some of them are noticeably longer and bulkier than the others. that probably explains why some days felt easier than others, i never paid attention to see how much extra weight they were adding on. i thought that all bars were a standard size and weight?

metal is a gift from God
Forgot my headphones so I had to listen to the shitty rap they were blasting over the speakers. Still got all my lifts in.
Realized I should probably not be doing deadlifts without a belt, that's probably a good contributor to my lower back pain. I'm a retard not like anyone is reading this thread anyways
Kept forgetting to post updates but I have been staying fairly consistent. Realized I've been doing deadlifts wrong for the longest time, I'm retarded.

How were you doing them? Will that come bite you in the ass somehow?
Replies: >>1066
Did deadlifts right this time, but I'm starting to hit my limit on the standing press at only 50lbs of weight on the bar. Hope I can push past it.
>>1063
I was lifting them without bending my knees first, so only using my lower back instead of back + legs. I don't think I did any permanent damage since the weight was relatively small and I'm still young.

Had the day off from work so the gym was pretty much empty, feelsgood. Song from webm related was playing and all i could think about was those fat bastards dancing, very dangerous to laugh while doing bench presses. also my calves are screaming at me, send help.
I had gotten a decent body weight routine going during the summer (gyms are still closed/require masks where I live, and screw that), but when the cold weather came in October I realized that I don't really have much space for home workouts.  I also lost my willpower around Halloween and bought a bunch of candy/sweets, so I spent like three weeks eating way too much sugar and junk food and not exercising.

I finally decided to clean up the dust in my attic and get back to working out a few days ago, with a body weight routine I found online.  I felt pretty sore for the last couple days, but I didn't hurt anything so I'm going to start it again today once I have time this afternoon.  It's astonishing how much better I feel when I exercise compared to just sitting at a computer and shoveling food into my mouth.

I'm gonna try to post here more regularly.  I like /fit/ boards and I think it's important for myself to track what I'm doing, and it'll be better for the board to have more traffic.

Completed a full 3 day workout last week for the first time, should've kept to the routine much more but I finally did it. Preworkout is a miracle but I'm also worried I'm going to be dependent on it and artifically inflate my gains and be unable to do them naturally.
>>1068
The most important part is to never skip a day, otherwise you'll lose your momentum and everything will start hurting again once you pick it back up. It's like a pull motor, you can't let it stall no matter what.

I failed my overhead press reps and dropped a 45lb weight on my big toe
Replies: >>1079

I'm torn between offering my sympathies and wanting to bully you for dropping 
>45 lbs
I guess I'll go with the former. My condolences for your feet anon. I have to lift things (10 to 70 lbs usually, occasionally more) above my head everyday as part of my job, so I will be able to start with fairly high weight on the overhead press I think. 
Speaking of which, I actually came here to laugh at you post that I picked up a barbell for the first time yesterday. I had ordered it a month ago and it finally arrived. Although I'm still waiting for all my plates to get here, I did a few sets of squats, rows, curls, military presses and attempted a couple bent presses, all with 30 pounds. I'm going to put 50 on the bar (so 60 lbs) and try some deadlifts tonight.
Replies: >>1080
>>1079
it was two separate instances, i failed on my third set of overhead press reps, then when i was putting the 45lb on the bar for my deadlift i tried to move a trash can out of the way and the weight slipped and fell on my foot. i was only thinking later how lucky i was that it didn't smash my nail, now that would be hell.
Failed my squats, now stuck at 160 (not including bar). the noob gains might be wearing off.
Did a few singles with 90 pounds, felt great. Wish I had ordered more plates, prices have doubled on a lot of the shit I bought. Alas.
I did a full barbell workout today, because I missed a day on my regular program, which is 100% suspension trainer based. Other than that, I plan on just doing a few barbell reps per day, as per Pavel Tsatsouline's "greasing the groove" theory.
Failed squats and overhead press again, might have to start moving into the advanced beginner phase since my noob gains have been reached.
Deloaded squats from 160 to 150 (minus bar) and still failed. I blame preworkout you become dependent on it and can't escape once you've gone too far.
Deloaded a significant amount so I can learn to do squats properly, makes you realize how much stronger you've gotten when having even that much weight feels like nothing.

I will probably alternate between these two workouts for a while. warm ups are kinda backwards, I'll try to fix that next time. I feel like I could go heavier on some lifts but I don;t have any more plates.

Started going to the gym first time in my life a couple weeks ago, went the last 4 days in a row, feels good. Not really sure what's ideal honestly, been doing dumbell concentration curls with 15lb. Can do about 20 on first attempt, i usually do that for both arms then try as many as i can again, then a third time. After that i ride excersise bike for 20 minutes and then back to concentration curl, doing as many as i can 3 more times for each arm.

didn't fail my overhead press today so that's good i guess
i can't feel my calves send help

I got sick the day after this workout and had to take a couple weeks off. It really affected my strength and over the last week I have been trying to get back to where I was when I last posted. I have managed to get back to the same weight during my workout yesterday but it was certainly more tiring to get through, so I'm not quite there yet but I expect to be caught up by the end of next week.

Failed my lifts on squat, bench press, and power clean. Deloaded the latter two and will start lighter on the former on Wednesday. Probably my body acclimating to the new diet and I was kind of bullshitting the last few times anyways. Not even the greatest band of all time was enough to push me forward, although it did help briefly.

I've been doing squats, however i kept arching my back while doing later reps and it fucked me up. are you sure they shouldn't hurt because of it?
Replies: >>1231
>>1230
You shouldn't get DOMS in your calves from squats unless you are doing extremely high reps. I got sore calves after doing 300 bodyweight squats, for example.  
It's okay if you can feel them, because they are secondarily involved in stabilising your squat, but they should never be more sore than your quads or glutes. It's hard to say exactly what's going on, but if you are arching your back you are probably leaning out to far, which would force your calf muscles to overcompensate for balance. The root issue is most likely a lack of ankle mobility. Not to say there couldn't be other issues but that is the most probable explanation.

I'm eating at 400 below maintenance intake and it's 50-60% protein. I was able to squat up to 175 (not including bar) before but now I can barely manage 150. wtf?

My gains have been stalling for the past three weeks and i am extremely upset. i can't even do two squats without failing. even after deloading and working my way back up several times i still fail. i want to believe there's a simple explanation like cascading failure where failing on one workout stalls all the others, or that i've changed my diet so that i don't consume protein shake immediately after working out instead opting for an actual meal. i'm starting to do protein shakes immediately afterwards again so hopefully this fixes it, otherwise i'm at a complete loss.

Not counting the bar I am constantly stalling around 160-170 lbs. I am also stalling on my standing press (70), bench (90), and I believe I was doing power clean wrong for a long time so I have deloaded there so I can work my way back up and doing it right this time (wasn't bending my legs to "catch" the bar on my shoulders)
Replies: >>1276

I have only been doing barbell stuff once a week or so lately but we're pretty close. I do 90 lbs on everything and just adjust reps and sets. For example:
>12x6 squats
>5x3 overhead press
Do you make sure to really contract the core and lock the shoulders in when lifting? You probably already know to do that but it can make a huge difference if you haven't been. I've also been screeching about the importance of ankle mobility when squatting but no one seems to give a shit.

I have now switch to doing both the Leangains diet and workout.

Pullups were moderately difficult and bench press was nothing. Should I increase the load more?

I'm taking the weekend off at the moment. The program is meant to be done daily though, which I'm working up to. Some of Sandow's students did the exercises twice a day every day, like pic related if I recall correctly.
Next week I'll probably just take one day off. Just to be clear, I would never attempt daily training with a conventional lifting program, but it can be done with (non-progressive) callisthenics or this program.

I wouldn't worry about it. 1 set of press ups to failure aren't going to do that much damage, and early strength gains are mostly CNS so it comes on fast. You'll be stronger by Wednesday.
Finally did the routine posted here >>1185 —if the Anon who wrote it, is reading this post, apologies for not responding sooner. While the back hyperextensions and swimmers were difficult to do right. The most difficult part was getting the form right and keeping track of the time devoted to eccentric and concentric parts of each exercise. Still, I think I'm going to enjoy calisthenics more than I enjoyed weight-lifting.

Worked out again after taking a longer break that i didn't mean to but my phone lost the registration key to my gym, so i couldn't get in when nobody was there. i hate that i have to use this gay app shit just to get in. Switched to leangains and it feels too easy. My arms are still pathetic (failed overhead press with 45lbs/10 reps) but I'll get there, still trying to find my base weights with the new workout.

8th session of LDS. I had a household emergency yesterday and didn't do the workout. I'll try to skip my planned day off this Saturday to compensate.
Pic unrelated.
I've just started going back to the gym after having lost 90 pounds over the course of Covid so it's been something like two years since any training. I was a fat fuck, but I was also a strong fuck. My bench press was 350lbs at its peak and deadlift was 600lbs. While I look a lot thinner and arguably buffer, it's very discouraging to think about how strong I used to be compared with my present strength, so I'm looking for advice to get back into the game. I'm looking to redevelop my exercises with a particular emphasis on bodyweight, as well as stretching routines and diet. I can do that myself and report back, but I need help with seeking resources that aren't just exrx and Starting Strength.

CNS tends to tamp down on strength output when one lacks full control and stability in a given range of motion. For example, if one has "forward shoulder" it can lead to weird issues when benching for example. One might even feel like they are retracting the scapula and creating the right benching form, but because of systemic postural issues they might lack full control in that range of motion. That's just an example, you'll have to "diagnose" yourself.
You can look up exercise priming, Kelly Starrett and his work, and try searching for specific exercise drills, things like "overhead press Mobility" or "squat mobility".

Do unilateral work. More dumbbells less barbell for a while. Let your weaker side determine your work.
Also, consistently "failing" your sets means you're overtraining and/or are going too heavy. I don't understand why you would try to aim (and overshoot the mark) for a given weight and rep range instead of using a weight you know you can hit the desired number of reps with.
Arms are easy and recover fast with minimal drain on the central nervous system, so I have a feeling that you are doing something retarded. Like working out to failure 4 times a week or lifting heavy with 30 second rest periods.

>I don't understand why you would try to aim (and overshoot the mark) for a given weight and rep range instead of using a weight you know you can hit the desired number of reps with.
because as you grow stronger you can lift harder weights, and you don't know what your limit is until you fail at it. every time i failed a set two times in a row i would deload to a weight i know i could complete and work my way back up, but after doing that 3+ times on one exercise it became indicative of a different problem.

Ok. Your posts made it sound like you were just constantly failing to hit  your targeted reps and not adjusting. I guess your only options are to work on mobility or change your programming.

Kind of messy, I know. Just did what I felt like while trying to hit my whole body. My legs had a lot left in the tank, but I don't have a squat rack, and my arms and grip were kind of gone, to the point where pressing the weight to get it over my head onto my back and off was getting kind of dangerous, so I called it a day.

Deadlifts, barbell rows, and calf extensions. The latter feels like they're not really doing anything, or I'm doing them wrong.

>>1418
Following the reverse pyramid method, so after each set you remove 10-15% of the base weight and add 1 more rep to the next set. Assuming a bar weight of 45lbs:
<A Day
>Deadlift 2x6,7 @ 200lbs
>Barbell Row 3x8, 9, 10 @ 105
>Calf Extensions 2x10, 11 @ 190
<B Day
>Bench Press 3x8, 9, 10 @ 130
>Overhead Press 3x8, 9, 10 @ 80
>Bicep Curls 2x10, 11 @ 75
<C Day
>Squat 3x10, 11, 12 @ 190
>Chinup 3x8, 9, 10 @ 30
>Triceps Extensions 2x10, 11 @ 40
I keep failing on my arms because my left elbow fails before everything else, going to try individual weights tomorrow to see if that makes a difference.

Not to bully, but I find this very amusing. I'm the exact opposite, I absolutely love hammering the fuck out of my legs and actively have to remind myself to pull back so that I can walk next week. I had been planning on 5 sets of 20 on the workout I posted and would have done it if my arms had held out. I get a Tom Platz like obsession about it.

Prove me wrong about what? I resent being told that my workout is "nothing" by another novice lifter like me (even if it was a novelty workout) who is mostly in the same ballpark as me with his lifts, despite the fact that I only strength train once or twice a week, and only a couple times a month at most with a barbell. Yet I can equal or exceed all your lifts except curl, chin-up and maybe barbell row (but that one is close).

You didn't post numbers so I assume you just did 3x10 at 190, 180 and 170 (since you said you do a reverse pyramid), like you posted here >>1419
put another way, your volume on squats was 5400 pounds, whereas I moved 11000 pounds (with 30 second rest periods between sets). Even 5 sets of 20 bodyweight squats is a lot of volume, nevermind with weight.

bitch you're not on my level, stop acting like it. 110 squat truly feels like there isn't even anything on my back and you're bullshitting that it's some huge accomplshment. what grinds my gears is that you think you're hot shit because you can lift near (but still below) my level. you've admitted that you don't take training seriously (twice a week? are you even fucking trying?) and you're underestimating the weight gap between us. add another 40lbs on your next "workout" and say that we can lift equally.
>weight volume
now this is mental gymnastics at its finest, i have never in my life seen this term used by anyone, from the skinniest DYEL skele to Grizzly-tier powerhouses. volume doesn't mean jackshit, you have sets, reps, and weight. those are your measurements, period. what's better, 100 shitty section 8 houses or 33 two-story family homes in the suburbs? that is the comparison you are making.

I am legitimately mystified that you are this assblasted about someone doing high reps. As for why 110 feels like nothing, it's because you're using ATP moron. Part of the problem is that you're just ignorant. 110 feels like nothing to me too for the first set, because I'm just as strong or even stronger than you (except the exercises previously noted due to lagging biceps). After that you shift into muscle glycogen use because ATP is used up and 30 second rest periods aren't enough to replenish it before you start working. Simply pretending that fatigue and muscle endurance doesn't count is baffling behaviour and indicates firstly that you haven't even experimented with high reps, and secondly that you probably have never truly worked a hard job in your life, because
>volume doesn't mean jackshit
You absolute fucking blackest gorllia nigger retard. Sets, reps and weight is just volume, like, holy shit, how fucking stupid are you? That's literally what you are manipulating by lifting heavier or more or both. Are you that fucking handicapped that you think unloading a semi with 15000 pounds of shit is the same as unloading a pick-up with 500 pounds of the same shit? No one can be that fucking retarded. Yes, quantity matters a lot. I'll take your 100 shitty section 8's over soccer mom bullshit suburbs all day,
Incidentally, I could squat probably around 230 or so for 3x10 with a rack no problem, and I'm tempted to go to a gym just to flex on your insecure ass because you have mistaken my lack of equipment for a lack of strength. I usually train once a week by the way, not twice.

if you're starting out for the first time then you should start at a lower weight and work your way back up. don't overestimate your ability, lest you look like a retard.
Back-arching is very very bad. That much weight is not meant to be put directly onto your lower back. Mine is already fucked up because I keep doing deadlifts wrong. Always keep your back straight no matter what. If you can't do it without arching your back, you can't do it at all.

Arms, some girl suggested I use a wider grip, right now I bench with arms close to my chest and grip at about the first notch on the bar. should I be doing them further out?

Didn't have a chance to workout for about 2-3 weeks because of life bullshit, getting back into it is hard but worthwhile. Deadlifts, barbell rows, and calf extensions. Starting to have difficulty keeping my balance on the latter.

Did arms Saturday and pulled something in my left shoulder/neck. Again. What could be causing this?

It was Alan Thrall who advised back arching (https://invidious.esmailelbob.xyz/watch?v=BYKScL2sgCs) and it was specifically for lifting more weight overall in powerlifting. I guess the rationale behind it is that it reduces the range of motion and the lower parts of the pecs are stronger than the central pecs, and that's probably why I instinctively did an impression of a tetanus patient when I got pinned.
I guess it can't be too stupid if done right since he and other guys that do it aren't fucking paraplegic but that's not really what I'm going for so I'll stick to big RoM, flat back and sissy weights.
Back on the pushups challenge from the  thread. I'm past where I stalled before, but I have to rest 2 days to fully recover. It's not like I do nothing, I played vollyeball yesterday, but I always seem to stall if I do MoWeFri on it, so now I rest 2 days between workouts.

Returned to the gym after about a month of demotivation. Form was fucked and I couldn't even do three sets of squats or pullups. But I will persevere.

i can guarantee it is something to do with your trapezius. lay down on a lacrosse ball or something similar and scrub the muscle out. you can try using the corner of a wall but that seems to only really rub out a single point on the muscle. a ball will roll around and scrub the area. unless youre able to find a specific knot, its going to take more than one scrub. if you do find that knot, hold it for 30 seconds with as much pressure and pain you can manage and then slowly roll off it, this will break it up and you will find relief almost instantly. 

im just travelling about, probably won't return after the weekend. good luck!

Arms yesterday. Odd that the gym doesn't have a bench for bicep curls.

Deadlifts, barbell row, and calf extensions. Forgot my headset so had to listen to the nogbeats they had blasting. How anyone can listen to shit much, less less lift to it, is beyond me.

Cancelled gym membership since I am moving soon and they only offer annual plans. Have temporarily shifted to body weight exercises in the interim. As many squats and pushups as I can do. Currently at 78 and 43, respectively.

My friend had a pullup bar when we were roommates, was going to ask what brand it was
>>1599
Go to the park. Some even have dedicated pull up bars, but you can use a tree or if you're low inhibition the children's playground monkey-bars.

Im trying to join the Army in my country because i don't really have any other choice of employment, besides i don't feel like rotting away in a 9 to 5 job

thing is in my country you need to take some "Tests" (i don't really know how to call it, in Spanish they are called Oposiciones there's no real term for them in English that i know of), i fucked up my previous attempt because my answers at the psych test were too schizo or something and didn't make the cut (its a computer test tho, no interview, i'll just have to lie and pretend im a fag next time i do them) even if i made it tho i'd have failed at the physicals

the physicals i have to pass are:

13 Pushups (easy. i can currently do them)
33 Sit ups (easy, i can currently do them)
7.5 periods of course-navette (i can do 6.5)
and 205Cms/6.7Ft of horizontal jump (no running, you jump from a static position, i can do around 160Cms/5.2Ft)

its the jump that has me all sorts of fucked up and the fact that im still 1 period away from the running, and the whole process in itself that has my anxiety peaking

regardless, i started training around a year ago, i did the couch to 5k and some random pushup routines, in retrospect i don't know i called this a "workout" and its a suprise i got to where i am now with just running, since a month ago i started escalating caliesthenics by adding situps and taking the 100 pushups challenge, today im upping the ante further by taking the 5k to 10K + 100 pushups + core + legs

not gonna lie, im not shure im gonna make it but that's why im posting here, to stave off the bad feels sorry for the blogpost

i'll try to post at least once a week
TELL ME HOW MUCH YOU LIFTED TODAY RIGHT NOW
