    Barbells, Dumbbells, and Life's Journey

    Hi all,

    Some of you may know/recognize me. Some of you won't.

    Link to old journal: https://igoodies.000webhostapp.com/?viagra=showth...hp?t=169053663

    I will try my best not to bore you, but let's be honest, nobody reads the posts. Been lifting now for..... 6 years? Yeah, that sounds right. I've had my fair share of ups and downs in the gym and outside of the gym. I've gone from logging regularly to posting once in the past 6 or so months. Long story short, my life changed.

    I got married, obviously moved in with my wife, got a new position at the university that I attend, and generally just kind of got myself lost in the middle of it all. But I'm starting to figure things out... slowly. Day to day life doesn't feel as hectic as it did this time last year. So without any further comments/excuses/boring drivel:

    Current Training Program:

    Texas Method

    Disclaimer:
    This is the Texas Method as remembered by mstatefan91 with tweaks and days that probably do not look like the Texas Method since the trainer has changed some of the intensity/programming to better suit his needs.


    Anyway, I believe I'm on the 5th week. Have finally gotten over some nagging injuries that I won't talk about here unless somebody wants to know. The only time they will be brought up is if they pop up again. I'm ready to move past them.

    Here is a video of my recent training:

    So I figure I might as well lay out the training week that I'm currently following:

    Day 1: Volume
    Squat 5x5
    Bench 5x5
    Tricep extension 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps
    Face Pulls 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps

    Day 2: Upper Back Assistance
    Pullups
    DB Row 3-4 sets of 6-8
    Lat pulldown 3-4 sets of 6-8
    Iso Row 3-4 sets of 6-8
    EZ Bar curl 3-4 sets of 8-12
    Hammer Curl 3-4 sets of 8-12

    Day 3: "Recovery"
    Front Squat 3x5
    Standing OHP 3x5
    Leg extension 3-4 sets 8-12
    Leg Curl 3-4 sets 8-12
    Standing Calf Raise 4-5 sets 8-12

    Day 4: Rest

    Day 5: Intensity
    This one is a little strange. I have a target weight that I want to hit 5 reps with. If I hit only 4 then I up the weight by 15 to 20 pounds and hit a single. If I only hit three reps then I stay at the same weight for the next week...
    Squat x5
    Bench x5
    Deadlift I hit 5 singles. I have been struggling with my deadlift lately. Trying this method while learning a slightly new setup/form. Really focusing on getting my shoulders behind the bar instead of over/in front of it.

    Yay first one in

    Love seeing Texas Method!!! I always made good progress on that, been contemplating another run on it, maybe this summer.

    Lifts are looking good. Are those PR's still current? I noticed you hit 247.5x5x5 in that video, if you're hitting that on volume day, you should be good for way more than 300x1.

    Thanks for joining me dude!

    PR's are technically current... I hit them in August 2016 and haven't maxed anything since then. Been dealing with annoying little injuries (mostly my fault). Finally healthy now.

    Texas Method
    Intensity Day

    Back Squat
    45x8, 5
    135x5, 2
    225x2
    275x1
    315x1
    345x1
    Belt added
    365x1
    385x1
    410x4 Video. Maybe could have gotten a 5th but lost quite a bit of tightness on the 4th rep and didn't deem it a necessary risk.
    430x1 Video. As stated in OP, if I only get 4 on "top set" then I go for a single about 20 pounds heavier.

    Bench Press
    45x20
    135x5
    185x2
    205x1
    225x1
    245x1
    265x5 Video. I think this ties a PR, but I'm not exactly sure since I haven't logged/recorded most of my workouts the past 6 months or so... slight butt lift which I need to get sorted out. Lower benches in the new gym have thrown me off a little bit.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x3
    275x2
    315x1
    Belt added
    365x1
    385x1x5 5 singles. Nothing exciting. Just working on form and staying healthy. Went about a month without deadlifting until last week..








    Notes:
    BW: 196.8
    Had a splitting headache for most of the day, so I am pleased with today's results despite not feeling well. In a slight calorie deficit. Trying to get back to around 190.. Just more comfortable in my body at that weight.

    Have an intensity day workout to post. Forgot my phone cord (to upload my videos). We shall see if I post it today or wait until tomorrow... Supposed to study today anyway.

    365x1
    395x1
    420x4 PR No video. File got corrupted due to a phone call. Trust me, it happened. I have felt like a chewed up piece of meat mainly due to this.
    440x1 Vid. Not that bad.

    Bench Press
    45x15
    135x5
    185x2
    205x1
    225x1
    245x1
    272.5x2 Vid. Idk what it is. I watch the videos and the reps don't look that bad, but in the moment, they feel slow and out of groove.
    277.5x1 Vid. Kinda paused. Just doesn't feel right.

    Probably going to switch over to Ph3 for bench press. Benching 3 times a week with so much more volume is what got me to this level. TM is great for Squat for sure and ok for Deadlift, but only getting in 30 or so working reps a week on bench is just not cutting it for me.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x3
    315x1
    Belt added
    365x1
    385x1
    415x4 Vid. Probably should have just grabbed the 5th, but my tightness was breaking down. I've had issues over the years with my back, and it just isn't worth it to me to grab that extra rep if I can stay healthy.
    435x1 Vid. This went up smoothly.

    Other than maybe being a bit quick on the bench pause, everything else looked smooth as, man. Good stuff!

    Thanks man. Yeah I think part of it is that I'm in my head on the bench and the other part is that I'm just not getting the reps in that I was used to so a lot of this is starting to feel misgrooved. It just isn't feeling solid.

    I'm interested in how Ph3 treats you. At some point, I'll move on from the DUP program I've been running (for what seems like forever), and Ph3 is a possibility.

    Thanks bro. Ph3 is good for my bench. Helped move my max from 265 to 300 last year.

    Anyway, taking today off from the gym. I'm a bit of a slug today after last night's activities lol. Also gives my back another day to loosen up.

    Volume tomorrow.

    No. I tried them in the past, and all I got was pain out of the experience. Not worth it imo.

    Texas Method/Ph3 Bench
    Volume

    Squat
    45x8, 4
    135x4, 2
    225x2
    275x1
    315x1
    Belt added
    360x5x5 Not that bad actually. I had built it up to be some kind of monster in my mind, but I finished it (warmups to last set) in 30 minutes.

    Bench Press
    45x12, 12
    135x5
    185x2
    205x1
    225x9x4 Last set was a little bit of a struggle. Would give it an @9

    I have been eating like crap the past 2 or 3 days. Lots of food. Little protein. Pizza, fast food... gotta clean it up.
