Dreyth's New Journal

Time to get back on track. Lifts are slightly down. Haven't improved in like 6 months lol. My physique still looks pretty good though.

As for my libido... it's better. A little. Little while ago, ended up trying half a pill of viagra with a girl. That didn't work at all. Tried a full pill next time. Got it up, she was on top, said she was sore so I should go on top, we switched positions and I went soft in between just like that. I've had 60 seconds of sex in the past 6 months or so. Pathetic. I've missed out on so much pussy it's ridiculous.

Sucks because leading up to that, I'd be really horny at times when I'm just home alone. Other times I would initiate sex but the girl will be tired, wont be enough turned on, or we're busy (like getting ready to go to a party; she just showered and didnt wanna have to shower again after sex).

Anyway, I'm planning a hell of a summer trip for 6 weeks (austria, albania, macedonia, spain, greece, bulgaria, kosovo). I want to look sexy as fuck for barcelona, ibiza, mykonos, and varna. I'm sure my libido will be back by then due to getting awesome sleep, having tons of sunlight, and being surrounded by beautiful half naked women on the beach.

Time for slow but sure improvements. I've upped the volume on upper body as well. This week's lifts will be base lifts. Any improvement at all will be counted as a PR, even if it's not an all-time PR. This will keep me encouraged to keep improving.

Let's go!

Currently not seeing any females. Time to go out and meet new girls.

Can't wait to lift Wednesday. Shit. This is awesome. I haven't had that feeling of "can't wait for my next workout" in like half a year!!!

Usually when I get this feeling, I hit PR's regularly. Hell yeah.

why do you need to figure out how much the hack squat machine weighs? you're just measuring improvement from a baseline. it's not like "hack squat calf raises" something you can compete in.

Got worse at chin ups dammit. Everything else improved. Will move up bench to 210lbs for next workout. DB's will stay at 50's for now.

why do you need to figure out how much the hack squat machine weighs? you're just measuring improvement from a baseline. it's not like "hack squat calf raises" something you can compete in.

just curious, you're right though it really doesn't matter
would only matter if I also decide to lift at a different gym with another hack squat. I might start doing this on deadlift day since my current gym doesnt have round plates  >:(


also, was extremely horny yesterday. fuck that felt good. too bad i dont have any girls in my rotation right now (one moved away, the other got fed up with me)... gotta go out more. i havent improved my lifts since like fucking october. on top of that my appetite has been shot since then, but its slowly coming back. i feel like my hormones are balancing themselves or something. lifts coming back, appetite coming back, libido coming back. this is good.

I really miss full body workouts. And supposedly they help stimulate hormones n stuff.

Thinking of doing push/pull instead of upper/lower. Would look something like:

Squat 3x5
Bench 3x5
DB Incline Bench 2x12
Lateral Raises 5x12
DB Shoulder Press 3x8
Calf Raises 3x12

Deadlift 1x5
Leg curls 3x12
Chin ups 3x5
Pull ups 2x12
Pendlay rows 3x5
Seated cable rows 3x12
Hanging Leg Raises 3x10

Not to mention I'd be squatting and deadlifting twice a week almost...this would be an every-other-day split. 1 on 1 off, to avoid squatting and then deadlifting the next day.

I'll probably test this out after the summer.

i've found that with rows, once i get to a weight where i can't do more than five-rep sets, my form has long since gone to shit. body english for days. ymmv, of course, but i do better with at least eight-rep sets.
