    Oh man. Thank you so much guys. Solid lists from sir Vinch and Big Dawg. :yahoo: Thank you so much guys.
    Hindi pa napasok yung sweldo ko to buy more plates badtrip.

    Still pretty busy with work and personal stuff that the daily cardio that I do has taken a backseat and the habits of eating what's in front me is coming back slowly cause of the stress. Not good. Not sure if its just being bloated or water weight but I got back to 91KG from 89KG. Not feeling it and also looking at myself in the mirror seems like the same.

    Masala, dyan sa reflex nag bubuhat yung iba nating brothers in iron. I also lift there pay nag yaya sila. Equips are good as they are all imported kaya Lang medyo pricey ang gym fee for a regular gym rat like us. Enjoy your training dude!
  • DSmallDivideDSmallDivide Posts: 4,565B-Class

    ano yung GTD?
  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    @milksworth. Oo nga e! Too pricey for me as well. I was like "Fuck, ilang itlog na nabili ko dun" Wala lang talaga ako mahanap na bakal bakal type gym around the area puro "fitness centre's" I cringe everytime i hear the term haha. Thanks boss milksworth! Pag nakita ko kayo doon I'll definitely try to bug you haha!

    @DS, thanks sir. I'm gonna take a week to deload for a while and see what's up. Video coming soon! Hope to really get good at DL's. I love doing them. Hindi ko alam yung GTD ano yun?

    For those of you who've been following my story so far might remember me being stuck at work because of the typhoon. Nakuha ko na this cutoff yung extra cash because of that and used it to enroll at Eclipse Gym. With my crazy schedule sobrang panalo because it's open 24/7. I'm trying to coax all my overweight cook friends to join me as well.

    Sobrang ganda ng facilities nila, first time I've been to such a place. Good thing a friend of mine recommended it to me only having good things to say about the place. Staff were very cool to me and are into strength training as well.

    No more excuses from now on.
    My short term goal would be hitting that 315 deadlift challenge for myself at the end of the 1st month.

    I'm at a loss on what to do now in regards to nutrition since I'm now at 194lbs comfortable nako sa sarili ko. Small US sized dress shirts nag kakasya na sakin which I find very weird. Continue cutting even if there's nothing to cut on? Bulk? Body Recomp? Maintain my current weight? I might just try to hit maintenance until my strength plateaus. Does the masters have any thoughts on this? I wanna hear from my idols sir Vinch and the Big Dawg if you guys have something to say from your experiences.

    Chapter II start:
    September 15th

    Bench/Deadlift Day

    Flat DB Press
    60 3x8

    Incline BB press

    Power Clean

    Did loaded barbell carries(100lbs) in the back squat rack position around my neighborhood for 5 rounds at the 5th round I almost didn't get to push the barbell back up to my chest haha.

    Can't wait to train some more!

    bro, hindi ko alam ano diet mo, meal plan, macros or anything but seems like you are progressing based on your logs. you also seem to be happy and motivated. i dont think you are lost since you said you are comfortable with yourself. sounds like you just want to know if what your doing is really working or maybe you just got lucky. ganito lang bro, as much as you want to be precise with numbers and details, you cant measure results, you cant compute confidence and happiness. so masasabi ko lang is continue what you are doing and make the most out of it, dont anticipate for setbacks, it will always come! trust me, hindi mauubos and setbacks! stop worrying about overtraining, overeating/undereating, selfdoubt and all that shit when you're making gains, PR's and reaching your goals right now. you are already a badass and an animal in the gym, you cant doubt that! relax lang and enjoy the newbie gains, tsaka mo gawing technical yung approach mo pag ready ka na for it :)


  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    Repped your post sir vinch. Panalo talaga. Don't regret making my journal here sobrang laking tulong.
    Thanks so much. Tama ka. I'm over thinking too much when everything I've been doing so far has been working out pretty well naman. Galing. Yun lang talaga character ko masyadong OA hahaha! Thanks :)
