    Samsonís Husky to Healthy Log

    Itís time for me to start a log on here to help myself with accountability. Iíd like any feedback, help, and critiques anyone may have.

    My history: Iíve worked out for years. I was in the best shape of my life at around age 20 or 21. Then I met the girl that became my wife. Ate like shit, didnít workout much for a few years and got myself up to 400+lbs. I tried diets and lifting. The weight went up and down. I finally realized a couple of years ago that I didnít have to make a diet change so much as a lifestyle change. Iíve played around with Test only cycles a few times over the years, but nothing too serious. Iíve only started cycling with different compounds in the last year. I lost quite a bit of fat and muscle to go along with it. Thatís why I started to add a few different compounds to my journey.

    Current stats: 36 years old, 267.4lbs at 5í10Ē, and 23% body fat.
    Attachment 6567
    Right arm(flexed)= 18Ē
    Left arm(flexed)= 18Ē
    Chest(arms down and rested)= 50 1/2Ē
    Around fattest part of belly= 47 3/4Ē
    Right thigh= 28 1/2Ē
    Left thigh= 27 3/4Ē
    Right calf= 17 1/2Ē
    Left calf= 17 1/4Ē

    I donít weigh myself much anymore. I like to measure and get Dexa scans to see where Iím at. So far, this year Iíve lost 8.7% body fat and gained about that much in lean muscle. I donít really like those numbers because I know I could have worked harder.

    How I eat: I keep myself in ketosis by eating higher fats. I really suck at keeping up with macros but, with my wifeís help, Iím trying. I eat around 2,000 calories a day with very little to no carbs. It works for me. Makes my workouts suck but I push through. I will usually have a cheat meal once per week.

    Workouts: My work schedule screws me a lot but I get them in. Days off will change and sometimes I have to alter my routine, but it looks like this:
    Chest
    Back/Rear Delts
    Legs
    Shoulders
    Arms
    I throw in abs somehow in every workout. I need to add cardio. I really only have time for cardio first thing in the morning but Iíve been being a lil bitch about that here lately.

    Thanks, guys. You know we are our own worst critics. I know I’m capable of more just kinda fell in a funk for the past couple of months.

    We all go through that sometimes. Hell, just this year I quit lifting and eating right for like a month straight with not a care or reason in the world. I just did. Granted I jumped back in but it happens bro.

    Hump day ass gains! Worked legs with the Mrs. tonight. I fuckin hate leg day lol. We tried to concentrate more on glutes. The wife started her first Var cycle and I’m trying some new stuff for her.

    Lying leg curls: 2 warmup sets of 25, then 4 working sets of 10. Squeezing at the top and holding on the way down.

    Abductor machine: never done this one before. I was there for more of a supporting role. I did 5 sets with the whole stack 10-12 reps. I have to say I felt muscles in my ass I didn’t know I had.

    Fuck Thrusts(hip thrusts): On the smith machine, 2 warmup sets then 4 working sets with 3 plates both sides.

    Squats: bar for 12, 135 for 12, 225 for 8, then 4 working sets of 315 for 6 reps. I’m still trying to get comfortable under the bar. I slipped a disc a few years back and it still has my head fucked up.

    Leg extensions: 140 for 4 sets to complete failure. After the 4th set I dropped the weight in half and did 2 more sets to failure with the left leg only because that little bitch needs to grow!

    The wife finished up on the kickback ass machine while I watched.

    Calories for the day are 2,015
    fat 64%, protein 26%, carbs 11%
    *I ate more carbs today for leg day.
    1 1/2gal of water

    Itís just that I have always had big defined legs. So, Iíve never needed or wanted them. Guess thatís why I say hate, because they get worked because I have to.

    I really didn’t want to go to the gym tonight but went and killed shoulders. Pretty sure I dislocated my ass yesterday working legs! Lmfao!

    Laterial raises: A lot of warmups, then 3 working sets of 8 followed by a drop set where I just go all the way down the rack from the 50s to the 20s

    Upright rows: 100lbs 3 sets of 10

    Front raises: I go light and didn’t even count. Went to failure for 4 sets.

    Side laterial raises: with the dumbbells at my side, again light weight to failure for 4 sets.

    Rear delts: sitting flys, 70s 3 sets of 8

    Shrugs: hold at the top for as long as possible and go to failure. 4 sets

    Calories are at 1536(didn’t have much time to eat today) carbs=26%, protein=29%, fats=45%. I ate more carbs than I should have today but it made for some nasty pumps in the gym. Water was 1 gallon.
