I had a good workout at Untamed Strength with my son.  I took the day off from work because we had to drop my wife off for a medical procedure.  We were looking to kill some time while waiting for her, so I talked him into going to the gym with me.  I got in my normal workout while he was able to shadow me and do his lifts with kettle bells and dumbbells.  Alan was cool and let me bring him in there so that was nice.

Good quick workout.  This week I'm leaving out my joker reps so things are going more quickly than they will in the coming weeks.  The exercise choices are really feeling good.

Excellent workout today.  On my previous cycle I ran a version of 4 Day Full Body from the Wendler Forum.  Now I'm switching to the version in the Forever 531 book and I think I'll like it better.  It uses 5's more than PR sets.  I like the mix of exercises and think it'll do me some good.

Good workout today.  This was my final workout of the cycle.  I debated which program/template to go with next and went back and forth between 531 (1000% Awesome, Builiding the Monolith, etc.) and Sheiko but decided to stick with a variation on 4 Day Full Body from 531 Forever.  It'll involve some SSL sets, Jokers, variations including SSB Squats, Incline Bench, and a lot of good hard work.  I'll move back to Sheiko closer to my next meet but in the meantime doing lots of sub-max 531-style work will do me good.

Good workout today.  I've got one more workout to go on this Cycle.  I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do next; either another cycle (or more of 531) or a Sheiko program that I've got lined out.  We'll see. :)
