Todays workout was nothing special. Did some pushups ab work and a few sets of tris and bi's. I am gonna give myself a few more weeks before separating the body parts and getting into a more set schedule.

Sorry everyone for the delay in posting. I had to deal with a friend passing and then someone in the family has passed. Will be posting regularly on monday. Im ready to start again and get big. One of the best things i did while i was gone was the following.

Havent tried 3 plates on the bench and wanted to give it a go.

315x6 felt so good.

Cant wait to get things going again.
