1*23*12 Strength 7.1

Well still feeling kinda shitty, but time to press on.  Pre workout shake and get to work.  Thanks to my great supplement sponsors for providing me with great products to help keep me training while not feeling 100%.

CONQUEST NUTRITION - I was able to use this shake since I have not been hungry, great meal replacement for me.  Also great to have in the truck keeps me from driving cheeseburgers into me 5 at a time.

USPLabs- Jack3d and Modern BCAA continually turning days I don't think I should lift into solid training.  There is some bullshit out there regarding the safety of Jack3d.  Well I am here to say take as directed like a fucking adult and there is no problem.  

Standard Warm-up:   

Front Squat:
135 x 10
225 x 5
315 x 5
405 x 5
505 x 1

Back Squat:
565 x 5 x 2

135 x 5
225 x 5
315 x 5
355 x 5 x 2

Since I am feeling not 100% this is a perfect day that I can go in get the main work done and call it.


  1. Hey Matt,

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I was wondering when you had your biggest PR increases, after your 10x10 cycle or after a lower volume/higher intensity strength cycle. I'm running 531 but thinking of tweaking some things to fit my schedule. Refused always gets me going btw.


  2. I definitely react very well to the high volume training. I know I can gain a ton of strength doing that if I can put in the time to push it hard. But there is a law of diminishing returns for me after 10 weeks I was fried on it. The shorter low rep high weight cycles are going to be more consistent gains for me. I hope that helps. They Both are set up to accomplish different things.
