    Trying something different with the side presses. Have read good things about them in regards to resolving some of my issues. Also only lifted two days last week, work was a crapshoot. Shooting for 4 times this week.

    I feel stupid as hell doing side presses atm, they're awkward and I'm still getting the hang of them. But I will say my shoulders feel amazingly good afterwards, loosens them up very nicely.

    Haven't had time to lift with work. I've been working 12+ hours every day and a bunch of that is heavy shit (hanging on cranes all day, carrying heavy shit, etc) so I've been feeling beat up enough to where I don't think lifting would be beneficial. Just repeated my last workout today. Will be like this for another 2-3 weeks then work should start slowing down.

    Still busy with work, just gonna repeat this workout once a week to maintain till shit slows down. Also gonna start cutting here. Just gonna run a 40/40/20 at a deficit to start and see how it goes. I'm fat enough shouldn't be too tricky at first lol

    Work is back to normal, gonna shoot for mon/tue thu/fri from now on. Also cutting started off a bit slow, started off at 3000 cals but I've lost a whopping 1 lb over the last month, dropping down to 2500 and seeing what happens.

    Sill using a belt on all deadlifts, I'm wondering if I should ditch it at some point but a history of lower back injuries keeps me playing it safe for now. I am using it properly, not doing the tight-as-possible-can't-breathe thing new guys do. I figure I still get a good bit of core work doing deadlifts with a belt anyway, and side presses provide a bit of core work too. Deadlifting everything double overhand still, my grip has never been an issue even when I was deadlifting around 500 10 years ago. Cutting down to 2500 calories going fine so far, feeling a bit hungrier (duh) but as long as I spread my calories out a little bit it's working just fine.
