This is my 'Merica Tank Top.  You can also see my Strong(er) Lever belt, SBD Elbow Sleeves, and my Icon Ag and Turf hat.

I love Overhead Press day! The only thing I don't like is that the program keeps adding more and more sets and it takes me so much longer to get through a workout.  I am looking forward to OHPing more and more weight.  I would love to be able to push press 315 within the next year.

This is one of my Jesup Gym T-shirts I got while I was on my #liftingtour on vacation.  Jesup Gym in Jesup, IA only costs $1.00 to enter for the day.  I was able to workout here after purchasing some new equipment for Heavy Hammer Gym at the Jesup Gym Equipment store next door. Very friendly staff.  Basically a mom and pop store that has been in business for a little over 32 years. I will write more about them later.

Today's Front Squats weren't awful, but I could only do 10 reps with this weight. (thats ok as long as I am in the 6-10 rep range) Block Pulls felt good as well, even though I only got 8 there.  I feel like my deadlift setup is finally clicking.  Hopefully I can translate this to pulling from the floor in my next strength cycle.

Fear No Evil Cut-off (Matt 28:20/Deut 31:6, "Be Strong and of good courage; Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go".  Flip-Flops...

Training felt great today.  Shoulders were a little sore from yesterday but I managed to complete all reps/sets required for the day.  I am really starting to get into this new training style.  I know it will get harder the next couple weeks as intensity and volume change, but hopefully my body will be ready for the adaptation.

Tough As Nails T-shirt.  Flip-Flops...

I feel that this new style of full-body hypertrophy training is going to kill me.  I have never trained this way before.  I hate reps higher than 5 (I am a powerlifter you know). This is going to take some getting used to.  That being said, I have been having fun with some new exercises and have actually been hitting most of my reps.  I feel that this training will really help with my muscular endurance (not a lot of endurance, but better than what I currently have) and give me some GAINZ in the muscle size department.  My quads are sore after two days of front squats, but not as bad as I thought they would be.  Maybe they will be worse tomorrow.
