So it's right at 2:00am....and I just got up as usual. Even on vacation, I don't sleep much.

Think I may go hit the beach for a run. Plus their is a public park a few blocks down on the beach that has a lot of stuff like an outdoor supersized play set for kids.

But it has bars you can use to do stuff like pull-ups and dips with bodyweight.

Right now I'm pacing the floors in this house!!

I totally get that my gym is the Wal-Mart or McDonalds as far as gyms are concerned, but the other 2 gyms in town are swimming with 2 types - douche bags and local police officers. Nothing against police officers in general, but I live in a small town and let's just say I have a checkered past....so Planet Fitness is better than nothing. I'll eagerly accept any advice. The majority of my info and training knowledge comes from hours of scouring the internet (although everything a person reads is contradictory to everything they read before...or will read next - one person says one thing, someone else says something completely different) and pure experimentation based off what my body responds to.

I'm going to lower my caloric intake a little for the rest of this bulk phase. I'll keep doing cardio 2-3 times/week for 30 minutes as well. Come the 15th of September, I'll cut for 2 weeks, keep "trying" (I know I'll lose a little muscle and strength during my cut phase) to lift at the same level I'm at now and increase cardio to 45 minutes; then see where I'm at.

Thanks again for the advice! I've been relentless on this since November. I do get frustrated sometimes, but oddly enough anytime that I bitch within a couple of days, whatever I bitch about I see results in. Either way, once I set my mind to something I'm like a fully loaded Mack truck going down hill with no brakes. I'll get to where I want to be, I just wish I wasn't so damn impatient.
I have quite a few workouts that are programmed for what you are doing. They have 3,4,5 day options. The off days are when you do cardio.

Do you have Android or I-Phone. If Android, I can tell you some free apps that you plug in what you want to do, estimated 1 rep maxes, and it will lay out 4 weeks of training for you. You can even select your own exercises.

It automatically recaclculates your weights and sets your next 4 week cycle up with the new weights. It touches on heavy weight, moderate weight, rest periods,.......pretty much all the methods of progression over those 4 weeks mixed in at different times.

You just open your app at the gym, and your workout and rest periods are layed out for you. You just check them off as you do them.

Ridiculous, I'm picturing you pacing the house while everyone else sleeps in pitch darkness. Laughing to myself at my desk hahaha. Reminds me of each morning trying not to wake my fiance while I get ready.

I hit the back/bi last night. Started out thinking something magical had happened, and extra weight was moving pretty easy. Then, it happened. Just dropped off, but still labored thru everything I had planned. I think the 10 days out of the gym, but still doing stuff at the resort, made that initial freshness on my old equipment/routine.

You know how when you were in your late 20s/early 30s, and there's usually this older guy at the gym. He seems to have had a time in his life where he was pretty buff, might have moved some weight, but now he's got a gut, and the skin isn't so tight, and the weights aren't what his body looks like it could move? Well last night I came to the realization: yeah, I'm THAT guy now

Bro, you're on vacation! What are you doing working out? I notice after a 2 week vacation my body seems to feel stronger with that much time off.

I know. I didn't do anything hard and called it "Active Recovery" just to get some blood moving.

Plus the week I'm back in the gym is right in line with my de-loading phase. So in effect I will have two full weeks of lower intensity training. At least that's the excuse I used on myself this morning!
