    CAPITAINS LOG ! I forget what week this is haha.

     

    Well ATG squats. Have gone well! This week i added only 20 pounds (DARN) but i did accomplish 10 more reps total than last week. Hip flexors still lagging a bit but its getting better every session. I guess today was better than i say because im not feeling all that great today and still set new records on this adventure.

     

    Carry on Men!

     

    Oh and women!

    Adding 20lbs in one week is something you can be pretty proud of @herculesinwyo! That is awesome! It's all about that progressive overload man.. more weight, more sets, more reps, it all counts towards MORE GAINS! 💪 

     

    Hope you are ready to crush this next week too!!

    Well today was GREAT! Squats felt really good and the support muscles have adapted so i felt stable and solid. Got another full working set in and few extra reps.

     

    I’m thinking next week i may try heavy with lower reps, as today i did 10, 8, 8, 6 I think it was.

    Anyway progress is continuing and I realize i need to do more stretching.

     

    Gains are gains no matter how small HAHA.

    This week , ugh!!! Nothing felt right! Hip ache and just not good. Well at 47 years old i cut the squats session and will reboot. Read the indications and call it off when it feels wrong.

    It's been proven even us men have a hormonal cycle ,so it's possible for us to have days we are just not feeling our best.

    The next leg day will be awesome , I'm resting up and eating some good food , not every workout can be a record breaker. Just wait till next session LOOKOUT!

    Well tonight is going to be leg day yet again , and i actually look forward to it . I have come to like doing squats, imbehind on updates as summer life gets real busy.

    Last week when i added weight to the Bahbell this made me feel more stable and gave me some new confidence. Is that Odd? I’m planniong to try to surpass 200 pounds this time as all my joints and tendons are feeling real healthy.

     

    I was surprised that having 185 on the bar compared to 135 or 155 made the whole motion feel more stable, anyway it worked for me and it has made me feel way better about going heavier. Befor anyone says anything about weight , i have bee going for 8 to 10 reps right now so for me that still gets me some good deep soreness.

     

    Update soon once im done with this session which will probably be some where between midnight and 3 AM.

     

    Here we go!

    No problem about being busy Mike, I have been super busy too.. must just be that time of the year!

     

    Sometimes more weight can help actually.. squatting with just the bar might feel a little 'off', but then once you add weight it keeps you grounded.. excuse the pun haha.

     

    You are doing a great job and making great progress Mike, proud of you! Almost at that 200lb mark 🙌

    It may be time i wrap up comments on this thread ( maybe). This mornings session was yet another day of improvement. I wont get into all the detailed numbers but my working sets were up 10 pounds and 2 more reps per set. Then fo one extra last set i wanted to add 5 pounds and just get one last good squat in. Well i accidentally added 10 pounds, i told my self too bad buddy lets go!! So i anyway i got 2 more reps at an all time ass to grass weight record for me. Right there proved to me mind over matter is a fact. I figure everyone’s actuall lift numbers only really matter to them, as long as we improve and get stronger thats the key.

     

    Chest night tonight after i play on the trains for 10 hours, i will eat and get mind set for some bench improvement.

     

    My motto is always set new goals , dont get complacent and the so called plateaus will be rare.

     

     

    The squat journey will continue and i ill be posting a new topic asking for help soon im sure.

    Nice Mike! Like the saying goes.. mind over matter. Whether you think you can or you think you can't.. you're right. Good job on pushing through for a new ATG PR!

     

    Sounds like a motto to me! Never settle 💪
