AM WORKOUT

5x16

DB lateral raise 15

Kroc row 105

Axle curls
1x100

Notes: GHRs superset the bench warm-ups, then an unbroken circuit of bench-pulldown-bench-raise repeat until finished.  Not terribly tough.  Starting to find my groove in the program.  Still exceeding the assistance work, but that's just who I am I guess.

Woke up at 193.8, possibly less.  Worked a 14 hour day yesterday and ate a few lighter meals.

Notes: Did all the assistance work between sets of squats.  Cut that final set of sit-ups short because it was placing stress on the surgical site of my knee.  Everything else was pretty smooth.  Only rested long enough to change plates for the squats.

Woke up at 194.2 this morning.

EMOM Stone of Steel over bar (23)
Triples for 10 minutes

Notes: I realize I log this workout differently every time.  Height is getting pretty crazy, which means technique is getting solid.  Need to start adding weight.

Woke up at 194.8.

GOD IS A BEAST WORKOUT 9

PM WORKOUT

Log viper and press way
5xLog
10x5x160

Chins (various grips)
50 reps
5x10

Reverse hyper 270
5x15

(3) DB incline press 50
50 reps

Notes: Warmed up with 50 chins, then hit a circuit of 1 set log, 1 set chins, 1 set log, 1 set reverse hyper, repeat until end.  I dislike training in the evening since I feel like it's too easy, so I made this as challenging as I could.  Wicked back pump.  I am well exceeding the assistance work layout of this program.  That may bite me later.

Woke up at 196.4.  Still making efforts to drop a little weight.

Prowler, 200lbs loaded, high handles
10x50'

Notes: 30 seconds rest between runs.  Conditioning feeling very strong; probably the effect of easing off the throttle a little.  Had more in me, but played it safe.  Upperback and forearms on are fire from yesterday.

Woke up at 195.2.

GOD IS A BEAST WORKOUT 8

AM WORKOUT

Axle deadlifts (deadstop)
5x136
5x226
1x276
10x5x366 (straps)

Standing ab wheel
4x8

Dips
10x20

Band pull aparts
100 reps

Buffalo bar squats 230
1x20

Notes: Did the deadlifts and dips in an unbroken circuit.  That was pretty exhausting.  Missed that feeling.  Axle was a nice touch on making this more taxing.  With this, I've finished the first training week of God is a Beast.  I'm still figuring it out a bit, but I'm finding how to make it work.

Woke up at 196.2. this morning.  Had my cheat meal yesterday at a Golden Corral, which, for my international readers, is an all you can eat buffet of dubious quality depending on location.  Ours is pretty decent, and I stuck primarily with salad and meat.
