    Today was my first day switching from my normal 4 day split into the modified Bill Star Routine. Today was also my first day on the Cissus RX + Powerfull stack. Previously I had been working out for mostly aesthetic reasons and not really pushing myself or shooting for any specific goals.

    I am newish to squats and deadlifts, having started doing them in the last couple months. I started the Bill Star Routine because I fear I may not have a strong enough base, and want to get back to the basics instead of isolation exercises.

    Dietwise I eat very clean. I eat zero processed food. My daily diet consists of protein shakes, wheat+turkey+lettuce wraps, lean chicken breasts, lots of cottage cheese, oatmeal, peanut butter and jelly, apples, bananas, yogurt, smoothies, etc. I have no desire to eat anything bad because I have never really eaten for enjoyment but only necessity.

    I will not be going on an official bulking phase, though I will be eating heartily. I want to gain as much lean muscle mass as possible but because my goals are athletic I am not willing to put on fat. This will most likely result in slower gains but that is acceptable.

    Today's progress:

    Squats:
    box - 135x5
    standing - 135x5
    185x5
    225x3 +2 above 90 degrees.
    box - 185x5
    box - 205x5

    DeadLift:
    225x5
    245x5
    265x3
    245x5

    BB Bench:
    135x5
    185x5
    205x5
    225x3 +2 w/ spot

    Incline DB:
    50x5
    60x5
    70x5
    80x5
    85x3+2 w/ spot

    Cardio:
    1 hour MMA Practice
    1 hour Muay Tai Boxing Practice

    cardio:
    MMA class 1 hour
    Muay Thai boxing 1 hour

    starting to develop pain in my left shoulder. have started icing my arm after practice. does not seem to effect performance during practice, but afterwards it aches deeply. the pain seems to be towards the back of my shoulder and sometimes in that area between my shoulder and tricep.
    any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

    alright shitty workout today. I've been sick all weekend and am hoping thats the cause for my lifts all going down. I've also been working out in my school gym instead of my boxing club so I can't use chalk... but enough excuses:

    Squats:
    135x5
    185x5
    205x5
    225x4
    185x5 (working on form)

    Deadlifts:
    185x5
    205x5
    225x5
    245x4 (lost grip on 5th rep)
    275x1 (grip)
    275x1 (grip)


    i think im going to need to step up my grip exercises and also get straps for deadlift if i continue to workout in my school gym

    BB Bench:
    135x5
    185x5
    205x5
    225x1
    205x2 (vaginitis?)

    DB Incline:
    50x5
    60x5
    70x5
    80x5
    90x3

    if i believed in emotes i would put one here crying.
    hopefully monday will be better.

    my squat is weak when i get into "the hole" i guess, my knees wobble around and i end up leaning forward.

    my deadlift seems weakest at the starting point, lockout is no problem for me. once i get it past my knees its cake.

    any tips?
