I'm not sure if I want my BMI to go down

Because of chocolate, because losing weight due to chocolate would just be weird. In any event, I was way ahead on this. I've been drinking brewed chocolate from Chocolate Alchemy for about a week now, and it's awesome.  I'll be sure to post if it also causes weight loss.

Notes:  Since I'm still rehabbing my hip, a program doesn't make a lot of sense right now, so I'm just lifting what I can, when I can, and trying to add a bit of volume with the pyramid sets.

Notes:  Decided my hips needed an extended break from heavy lifting after Monday's squats, so the rest of the week was all press/push/pull work with a little light hip rehab.  I may start light (embarrassingly so) again today, but we'll see how I feel after a warmup.

Workout Log, PTTP cutting, week 1

Monday (3-5-2012)
deadlift 325 lb 3, 1
deadlift 295 lb 3, 3, 2, 2
bench 205 lb 4x3
close-grip cable row 100x10, 140x5, 180x5, 160x5, 160x5

Wednesday
squat 265 lb 1
press 125 lb 2
press 115 lb 5, 3, 2
chinups 12, 7, 7

Friday
deadlift 315 lb 3, 3, 2, 2
bench 205 lb 4, 4, 3
dumbbell row 100 lb 3x6

Weight (Friday): 176 lb

Notes: Back was killing me in the early part of the week.  Couldn't hold onto the bar on Monday, and I got threatening letters with attorney letterhead when I went down for my first working squat on Wednesday.  I blame the RPT volume from last week.  I think I'm recovered at this point, so I'm optimistic that this week's workouts will be less disappointing.

Workout Log, trying out RPT

Monday (2-27-2012)

deadlift 285 lb 8
deadlift 255 lb 8
chinups 10, 6, 5

Wednesday
press 120 lb 5

Notes: Trying out Martin Berkhan's take on reverse pyramid training.  I hate it.  Sets with rep counts past 5 give me terrible soreness a couple of days later.  My back is still sore from Friday's workout, to the point that I'm not sure I should even lift today.  I'm sure this works for some people, but I'm not on that list.
