      Done today:

      Pull-Ups 5-4-3-2-2

      Squats 13-11-10-9-8

      I'm super frustrated and angry, it seems that I'll not be able to run or do any jumping exercises again (at least this season).

      Good night/day bees!
      perfect opportunity to work on your strength and bulk up a little the protocol I gave you is for strength, if you want to add bulk to it we will have to modify it slightly

        PetiteSheWolf Colin BlackButler Thanks guys. Honestly, tracing out the photo outlines isn't that impressive.

        xingyiquan Taking into consideration the fact that I can't really do any (harder) cardio or running, and I need to spare my legs as much as possible it is a good moment to bulk indeed. I already feel like I've gained some muscles (at least it looks like this). My only doubt is (as always) nutrition. I'll do some official measurements on Sunday to check the progress.

        Ok yesterday and today I unfortunately did nothing. My lower back and whole lower body are rather unhappy, because of amounts of farm work. I hope to catch up tomorrow and on Sunday (I know it won't be easy).

        Good night/day bees!

          A pure strength protocol still gives some bulk except if you are already very advanced.... still with some tweaks it can be enhanced. For nutrition... don't care ! U will need plenty but I wouldn't really plan it with macros and all that stuff... basically 3 good meals, some dairy and plenty of fruit and vegetable will do the trick... remember the most perfect natural bodybuilders were there before calories had been even imagined...

            Done yesterday:

            Push-Ups 10-8-7-6-5 and 10-9-7-6-5

            Leg Raises 9-8-6-5-4 and 9-8-7-5-4

            Done today:

            Pull-Ups 5-4-3-3-2 and 5-4-3-3-2
            Do the reps look the same? Because they are. I failed first session so I did it again (and failed even more). I'll be doing this set of reps until I'll do them properly.

            Squats 13-12-10-9-8 and 13-12-11-9-8

            I'm in a really bad mood lately. I have a headache, I have sore throat. Everything sucks and I'm constantly mad at everything and everyone (at least I know it isn't my fault).

            Good night/day bees!

                When do you fail ? I am already happy with current 54321 because we can work with that to get you above 6

                  Maybe my arms were tired after Saturday's push-ups, but first time I failed on 2nd set, after 3 reps I had to let go and rest few seconds. Second time I had to stop 1st set and for last 2 sets I've switched to chin ups because I couldn't do pull-ups anymore.
                  Now it'll be hard for me to progress because I have cold/flu.

                      Ok then it shows that you don't have a strength issue but an endurance one. You can either rest longer to see when you will block at max effort or rather consolidate at 5 for the moment and build it up ( better because lack of endurance couples with poor recovery = you might push too hard and get 2 presents 1 slowly see your form deteriorate and 2 get injured without understanding where it is coming from ). For a while do rather 5 rest 1 r 2 r 3r then next session add 1 then 1, 2 then 1.2.3 up to reaching 5123123123123123 then move back to 54321 and follow the previous routine i.e. 54321,64321,65321,65421,65431 65432,75432 etc...it works wonders! Remember this is a high frequency program (you train an exercice every second day ) so blocking is part of the game hence the need to set back with volume... if you block a second time keep again only the max rep in the first set and go through the ladders again (the reducing of total reps is on purpose 15 to 11 in your case, to give your body a moment to regather its forces again )

                          xingyiquan If i understand you correctly I should do 5123 and add one number (1, 2 or 3) every session until I reach 5 and 5x "123's" (that's a lot of reps).

                          BlackButler I didn't knew his works, but I like this style (kinda like a poster or comic). Thanks for the healing vibes.

                          Yesterday I was dying, so no workout.
                          I'm sick and I feel really bad. As soon as I'll be able to breathe normally I'll start to workout again.

                          Have a great day/night bees!
