Sorry it has been a little over a week since I have posted.  My wife and I took our daughter on a little vacation.  We went to Des Moines, IA (Polk City) and stayed with my in-laws.  While we were there we went to an Iowa Cubs game and visited the Blank Park Zoo and Living History Farms while spending a lot of time with my wife's family. It was a fun 10 day vacation.  The best part about it was not missing a day of training.  The owner of 22nd Street Barbell in Des Moines was kind enough to let me train at their gym while I was on vacation.  It was a great place and I will do a post about their gym later.  On to my Training Journal:

This week of training seemed to go pretty well.  I am finding that the volume I have been doing for quads is too much.  The program is giving me less and less Front Squats to try to recover better.  I don't mind the extra rest. I really think it does help me.  I just have never really training with this much volume before.  It is interesting to note that the volume for my shoulders/chest has been going up.  Apparently my upper body is fine with more volume, but my lower body isn't.  At least I am learning to ready my body better.  My hips were very sore this week.  I had to stretch them out in between every set.  My back didn't bother me too much.  My biceps started hurting a bit due to the fact that I have never really trained my biceps much.  Now I am doing them 5 days a week.  I have noticed huge gains in size in just 3 weeks or so.  Oh those Noob Gainz.  No videos this week...sorry.

Daily "Selfie":

wp-1466625886481.jpg

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.

Here is a link to the video of my training on my YouTube channel:
