    I have been meaning to start a log here since I started working with Skip. He is doing my nutrition to get me lean right now. I have a hard time getting under 10% and I am hoping to be sub 8%. After that I will be bulking to add some muscle. I will be using DC training to bulk. Right now I am doing the advanced madcow 5x5 to get my strength up some more before I start DC. I am not a bodybuilder competitor but I am looking into possibly powerlifting or strongman depending on weight classes.

      My upper body is really sucking now. I have some shoulder pain so I think it is mental to not push so hard

      squat - 257.5x5x5
      ohp - 140x3x5, 140x2x4
      dead - 365x3x3

        I am really lagging on keeping my log here up to date

        squat - 247.5x5, 267.5x5, 285x5, 305x5, 325x4
        incline - 235x4x5, 235x4
        row - 195x5x5

          I am thinking my incline is over estimated for 1rm. I know my shoulder is bugging me and I am on some really low cal and carb for cutting right now so I get burnt out quickly as well.

          squat - 315x5x5
          incline - 202.5x5, 220x5, 235x5, 252.5x4, 267.5x0
          row - 167.5x5, 180x5, 192.5x5, 207.5x5, 220x4

            So my quads are just burnt out from monday. Monday was a really good day for them and my recover is just not there with the low calories right now. I took it easy since next week is my deload I kind of started it earlier since I won't have squats on wednesday starting next week. My upper body is suffering as well.

            squat - 267.5x3x3
            ohp - 147.5x2x4, 147.5x3x3
            dead - 382.5x5, 382.5x4, 382.5x3

              I am actually happy with my squats today considering its friday and I wiped them out in the beginning of the week. Chest on the other hand just sucks. I stopped after 4th set since the reps dropped to 2.

              squat - 260x5, 280x5, 302.5x5, 322.5x4, 342.5x3
              incline - 247.5x4, 247.5x2x3, 247.5x2
              row - 205x5x5

                Overtraining should be one of the lowest concerns. You should focus on optimal training.

                  Thanks lhart. I have always been pretty strong for my size even when I take a year off. I have been very consistent for the last year. Planning on keeping it this way for as long as I can this time.

                    I feel pretty good today on upper body. Started deload this week so I'm sure that's why. I might have got all 3 reps for incline but had no spotter.

                    squat - 315x3x3
                    incline - 215x3, 240x3, 267.5x2

                              Workout was OK considering end of week and still dieting down. Wish I had a spotter to try and get 3 reps on squat.

                              squat - 280x3, 315x3, 350x2
                              incline - 250x2x3, 250x2
