Fuuuuuck.

No training today but got called by the wife at work with a flooding living room last night. Upstairs toilet overflowed in the middle of the night and water was fucking everywhere. Flooded the bathroom, ran down into the floor into the ceiling of the living room, down into the walls, flooded the floor in the living room. A complete fuck sack.

Trying to find a contractor to give us a quote.

Better get it dried out quick before the mold starts growing. Mold can start growing in about 25 hrs, need lots of fans and dehus

Got fans and stuff on it but haven't opened it up. Contractor came by this morning after I got off work to write us up a quote to submit to insurance. Hopefully we won't need to tear it all out and can use that money towards something else but, just want it fixed right.

Push today.

Got off work and met the contractor from 730-830 this morning. Looks like it might not be as bad as we had originally thought but, don't know until everything is submitted to insurance on what we can do.

Slept till about noon then got up to eat and train. Push went really well with 3 hours of sleep lol. Gained some reps on most stuff but lost one on Smith sp. I rotated this out to hammer last time but it was taken so I went back to Smith.

Back at work now and do it all again tomorrow with pull. Thinking about trying out a new gym but the one I go to is free and I'm a tight ass. The new gym looks really good and there are a few guys who compete there so I might do a week pass to see if it'll be worth the $40.

Check ins with myself in the morning to see if the diet and cardio change have done the job.

Tried the new gym today. Really liked it.

It's a Warehouse gym so it's a bit warm but they do have some ac going and big fans so it was probably 80 degrees instead of the 103 outside.

It's got everything I already use plus some stuff that's going to be very useful if I decide to start going here.

I went with a few exercise selections today to feel some machines out I was interested in and enjoyed them.

Hammer hi row instead of the single arm Pulldown I like. These hit good but the Pulldown would stay somewhere in the training.

A lying chest supported iso row. 3 spots to load plates so you can manipulate where it's heaviest.

Mag grip cable row.

A chest supported t bar that didn't crush my chest.

Strive bicep curl

Cybex "eagle" curl where you sit upright and your arms are against a pad.

They've got a couple Deadlift platforms with Jack's for loading.

Smith's that go all the way to the floor. Rdls and floor presses would go in on those

3 different hacks, one being the hack where just your ass and low back are supported.

Hip press

Iso leg press

Hip thrust machine

Reverse ham Glute machine

A lot of chest pieces I've never used and other stuff I can't remember.

I paid for a week pass so I could hit a few sessions before I decide what I'll do.

The biggest issue I'll have is getting used to the heat. I finished the entire half gallon of my intra before I even got to biceps today so, I'll need to push hydration harder before I go and start taking my 1 gallon yeti.

Rest day.

Slept till about ten and got up to prep chicken. It was earlier then I would have liked to get up but, body said its time.

Did my cardio after I go the chicken going and went back to sleep for a couple hours thankfully. It was a deep sleep too since it went by in like a second in my head. My awesome wife pulled the chicken out of the instant pot for me so I didn't have to get up.

Relaxing and trying to nap since then before I go into work tonight. Heat index today was 110 so I'm happy I'm on nights still lol. Cardio was warm but not terrible yet, only 30 minutes of walking can only be so bad.

Tomorrow I'll train legs at the new gym. Hopefully I'm able to hydrate enough and get enough food in before so the heat doesn't fuck my session up because I'm going hard.

Weight is still stuck. Pics show the lower back and legs tightening up though so I keep true to my plan.

Yesterday was legs.

At the new gym all there was a learning curve.

I learned their pendulum squat gets rediculously heavy at 5 plates. Took 5 for 6 reps and left one in the table. I'll get 8 next time. Backoff at 4 plates for 12

Iso hip press. 2 working sets with 5 plates per side for 16 and 14. These felt good and I feel them in the outer quad and hip.

Belt squat Sldl. 2pps for 14 and 12. Not a fan. Rom wasn't great.

Adductors 2 sets of 270 for 15 and 13.

Hack squat (where just your butt is in the sled) 1 plate and a 25 here for a cluster set at 25 reps total.

Glute raise machine be x fail 3 sets

The Pendulum crushed me so I'll adjust my stuff next time if I keep going here. The heat is rough.... Went through a gallon of intra before I was done and I didn't have a solid plan so it wasn't a perfect session. Will see what happens.

Rest today. Slept in and on my way to work now. Push tomorrow.

Push.

More new equipment so feeling out the sessions a bit.

Pec deck 2 working sets with the stack 15-12. They have gym pins here so I'll start progressing this where I can.

Pro maxima flat press. My flat press has been seated and this one is lying down. 3 plates a side for 11 and 8. Could have gone a bit heavier but it felt great there with slow tempo.

Hammer decline. 2 working sets 4pps 12-9. Will strap in next time since I lost some reps pushing myself out of the seat.

DB rear lateral ss Roger's machine press. This was pretty much a close grip press. 60's for 22, 20, 18 and 3 plates per side for 12, 10 and a cluster at 2pps for 22

Seated DB partial laterals ss triceps press down with prime grip. I love this prime adjustable Pulldown attachment. Felt perfect on the triceps. 60's for 20,18,15. 120 for 15,13,11

Abs after
