Decided I should make a log to be able to track progress. Not sure when exactly I'll be starting my next cycle but it will be within the next month or slightly after. Have to take care of some personal stuff before starting; however, I figured I'd start tracking where I am at now before starting. 

Current Stats-

30 y/o

193 lbs

~14% BF

 

Current PRs-

Bench 335x2

Squat 315x10

Deads No Comment

 

Current Spread (may change due to life)-

Chest, Back, Legs, Shoulders, Arms, Off, repeat (5 on 1 off)

 

Disclaimer-

I have issues with my spine and am cautious about going higher in weight in squats & rarely do deads. Would like to push myself but also concerned about my future health. I have been dealing with an elbow/forearm (probably a slowly healing tendon) issue for the last 5 months or so, it has gotten a lot better but it still bothers me when I do curls (especially hammer) or heavy back exercises.

Yeah? Its been shitty and is taking forever to heal up. I used to do back/bi in the same day but trying to spread it out in hopes of helping it heal faster.

 

Hammer curls and over hand bb curls are nearly impossible to do, still

I wrecked mine doing skullcrushers. Since it bothers me doing a lot of bicep curls, oddly not hammers tho, and most annoyingly has started bothering me during pressing. Every time I've tried to do forearm exercises to strengthen it seems to get worse. This week I'm trying some ice/heat combo and am always open to any new suggestions lol.

Yeah I've tried everything but gear to fix it up, including hydro collagen (ex gfs parents owned a supplement company that makes it).. went through a couple tubs and still hurts like hell..

 

Guessing the only real way to heal it is to take a month or two off the gym, and we all know that is not an option

I'm in champ! Push slowly buddy.......better to be healthy in this game for the long run.

Yeah the bloody skull crushers generally the culprit.....but by god, the most effective way to build triceps!

Yeah man, most my workouts have been 70%, doing it higher intensity. Skull crushers don't bother me like they do other people... When I do get a pain from them it's above my elbow

Doing them standing helps alot, the movement is behind your head rather than the traditional skull crusher. Traded em in a while ago and elbows have been g2g.

I did something to mine while I was doing overhead tricep extensions. For some reason my elbows don't like db/bb work with triceps. I stick mostly to cables and go light when I do use dumbbells.

Did a 10 min run at the end of my workout at a 7min mile pace, elbow felt alright just hurt when loading plates.. Gym was crowded (lots of old people/teens), probably due to the shitty weather

Haha no, was tempted to do arms.. I wasn't motivated at all, was in class all morning. I'm currently cal deficient and avoiding carbs as much as possible... Feel so weak, wanted to get as lean as possible before I start this C and eat like a machine
