    Thanks DrBdan, this is definitely the longest and most consistently Ive EVER run any kind of routine without missing or postponing a workout, so that in itself is a goal Ive accomplished.
    I went to Hemingways in Seaside Heights on saturday night for my girlfriend's birthday (basically the setting of the show Jersey Shore), its not our scene at all but she wanted to get dressed up and go out. I grabbed a 6pack of Long Trail unfiltered IPA and drank 4 of them in the hour before going to the club, then had 3-4 Yuenglings at Hemingways, then drank another IPA when we got back to the room in seaside at like 3:30AM. I was looking for Dogfish Head 60min IPA or some other ~9% IPA I had last week that comes in a stubby bottle like Red Stripe, but Long Trail was all I could find. Lately I only ever drink 2-3 beers at a time on occasion so I was hammered.
    A lot of girls were dancing in front of me and making eyes, and I actually got approached by another one while my girlfriend was in the bathroom, that was awesome, (hopefully my gf never reads this log.)

    7/7 Rep Upper
    Incline DB Bench: 45sx8, 60sx14, 60x11, 55x11, 55x10
    A) neutral grip chin: 11x2, 10x1

    Weird DBs felt heavy for incline press today, did quite a bit worse than last time I did incline DB press. Wonder if it has to do with training last night, training right after i got off work, or just a bad session. improved on chins by a bit

    At first I was disappointed I couldn't DL 285 3-5 times, but realize overall I did the same number of reps as last week,
    with the last 2 reps being a 20lb PR

    Edit: 8-9pm Grappling
    Repeat of wednesday + 1 more 5min round of rolling

    Did you tweak the programme? I thought that W4SB doesn't have a second lower body day... and that the second day is changed from 'dymanic effort' to repetition, anyway. (BTW, I am totally in favour of such tweaking- if it was done and I understand correctly- it would make W4SB more like real Westside.)

    Nope, its Defranco's own tweaking. http://www.elitefts.com/ws4sb/WS4SB.pdf
    Its Westside for Skinny Bastards Part 3

    The second Upper body day is switched to repetition instead of dynamic in the original program (and this new version). A second lower day, dynamic lower, is added in the new version.

    He also has specific programs in that .pdf for speed/sprinting, in-season athletes, and geezers.

    The FAQ should be updated to include this version

    7/14 Rep Upper
    DB incline Bench: 40x8, 60x14x2, 60x12, 60x10
    A) neutral grip chins: 12x2, x11
    B) cable scare crows: 15x12x3
    lateral raise: 20x10
    DB military press: 30x12x4
    C) Overhead shrug: 100x15x3
    D) BB curl: 45x10, 45x12, 45x13

    Gym was fucking packed, I did my bench and pull ups then went home. I couldnt find 2 of my 10lb plates so did some lateral raises first, then did some more searching and found them in a closet. Then I loaded the DB handles for the db military presses.

    Whats the deal with BBers and partial movements? Saw a dude doing 90lb DB presses, which is pretty impressive, but only going down to where his elbows were not quite 90*, so if it was a barbell in his hands itd be like he was lowering it down to his forehead and then pressing it up.

    Yes, Today was full of win, bullshitting on tuesday paid off, or the extra coffee and Xtend BCAA supplement I started taking paid off. The Xtend is 1000x better than the pea protein I had been taking with black coffee before workouts. It tastes like a fucking tootsie pop, the flavor is so strong I cant even taste the coffee. Thats much better than tasting like dirt and shit mixed with sweat.
    Anyway the last squat set was tough, and my form probably broke down a litte, but who cares, I got that shit down and up. On the last slow rep there I felt the strain almost completely in my hamstrings.

    bench was real slow on rep 4, and rep 5 was a grinder, jumped immediately onto incline after I racked the weight, usually I at least pull the weights off the bar before going to the next exercise but since the gym was so empty i moved right away.
