The road so far -

170 - > 159 ->myfitnesspalbulshit ->155.

I still look pregnant, so running/lifting is on order now.

Elbow feels fine, we'll give it a go.

Also wife wants me to join this stupid gym that hits an alarm if you grunt, but hey
it has fucking tanning beds.

No.

will start sharing my adventursome adventures here.

Basically just going to p90x it again for a few weeks till the wedding, also doing some ostio bi flex 3 x a day
along with omega 3's to give my fucking old joints some support and hopefully not have some weird flare ups.

AND - once we have fundage, going to the doc to see if I need any other help.

I am skinny fat - you can't spot reduce, and no, with the wedding looming, I should not
be trying to gain weight.

Holding at about 150 ish - Wife had me join a gym, but ofc it's planet fitness, where free standing oly bars
don't exist.

Oh well, Smith'ing it up as best I can on Rippetoes, with some added ab and arm work post main lifts.

Nothing special to report really at this point other than down an inch on my waist, chest and arms look fuller.

Wedding is next week, after which I can worry about clean bulking or just continue reorganizing the weight I have.

I agree - no oly's though and not sure if I'd really notice it as well on the smith.

Probably try it next time though.

everywhere that i read about strength programs or just anything involving squatting, when people ask, "my gym only has a smith machine will this affect my gains on this program?"

the answer is always "consider changing gyms"

depressing

Yeah - wife picked this place out, I figure if I can keep going it'll motivate her to go. I can deal with it being restrictive to ROM and
not really as much of the load being bore by you as otherwise would in the meantime.

I have noticed there seems to be a group of us husbands at this gym who are dying for free standing olys.

I wonder if we made a petition it would do anything.

ya, it probably has to do with the target audience
my gym for example, which is inside of my work, is very small and the vast majority of members are rotations of obese women who want to do cardio for a few weeks and disappear
as a result there is 1 smith machine and the db area is like the size of a closet

the only somewhat redeeming thing is that although there is no oly bars there is a shorter 25 lb bar so i can still at least deadlift

Yeah I had to find a gym around here with a squat rack and only 2 were under 100$ and had a squat rack...

Everything else was just Smith machines and cybex machines for everything instead of dumbbells

Then my gym closed overnight without warning so I had to go to the only other place in this area that had one even though its a shithole

This next energy comes from deep inside. Push hard to find it!

TIL after this workout - Overdoing it, trying to fit 3 workouts into 2 sessions, and upping the weight too fast I think.

Right elbow and shoulder feel like they have both been shot, and was super dizzy and almost passed out at more than one point tn8.

Sleeping like 4 hours prolly didn't help either.

WM + stretchies

Squat

Bar x 10
135 x 5
155 x 3
175 x 5
175 x 5
175 x 5

110 x 5
95 x 6

Bent Over Rows

Bar x 10
95 x 10
115 x 6
115 x 4
95 x 8

Scarecrows - 15 lb dumbells

Standing Obliques

35 x 15/15
35 x 15/15
35 x 12/12

Deep Swimmers Presses (Dumbells)

Elbow was already killing me, this was stupid as shit to do

35 x 4
25 x 6

Weighted Crunches - 10 lb plate-

25 reps
20 reps

Almost fell over during these, more than once. So got the fuck outta dodge.

doubling ostiobiflex - and taking a few ibu's now to help.

14 min on treadmill - over a mile but can't remember how much it was
Fin.

I think the dizzy spells have to do with my heart rate - it was even
really high during my cool down (went up as high as 207 at one point then
slowly went back down) - I'm in turrible cardiovascular shape.

5/20 - insert clever tag here.

TIL - Wife and kid have already pretty much given up. Wife hasn't come along the last two times, and I can't even remember
when Mikey last came to the gym. Whatever, figured that would happen, and that they would just waste more money. #1stworldproblems.

TIL2 - I'm recomping instead of really losing, which is good, I guess. I do think I'm hindering myself 3 ways though.

1. Diet is still crap, prolly need to eat a bit more.
2. sleeping is shit, has been for years, and now that I drink like,
once every three weeks it's gotten worse. I'm assming though that will
righten itself out, just got to give it time.
3. I still haven't made it up to 3x a week yet, suck it up and dooo it ep.

Nope.

I know it's really really low weight right now, but it's what the program calls for. Adding 15 lbs each week to my squats and 10 each week to all others means it'll be higher soon enough. In the meantime since it's so light I'm just rushing through them while maintaining good form - so it's like doing cardio.

It's be out of that soon enough. I am fine with taking it slow considering joint issues.
