Nice! Is cage shrugs just shrugs in a power rack?

It's shrugs done with a piece of equipment that looks like a trap bar that is in an opened ended U shape with fixed handles.

I like it over regular shrugs with a bar, because of the hand position, palms inward.

Squat and chest day today felt great, not bad and did not suck.
I attribute my success to my preworkout geritol/prune juice/protein Hardcore Pro Geriatric Series shake.

I used to do hams on the same day as squats, but I discovered that I got a better result by breaking them out to a different day.

I recently experimented with working chest same day as squats, same result.

In an odd way I like your routines. I've done that Circuit meets Mentzer thing. Nautilus pull overs....I get a lot outta that machine depending on the way I sit in it, one or two handed. Abs, lats, serratus and intercostals.

I often do a 'finishing' set ending several heavy sets. Such as my max on leg press is 18 plates x 6...then one last set of 6 plates x 30. Sorta a pyramid up...and a big drop on the way down.

I will probably stay with that diet for a couple of months and then shift into something like this approx 1900 calorie diet to try and cut to around 200lbs by next August.
The approx 1900 calorie diet is a bit high on carbs so I will tune it as August approaches.

Then based on my appearance make a decision as to maybe competing in a bodybuilding masters division contest.

1 cup of oatmeal
2oz of Almond Milk

Yeah, I figured it was a break from posting and not from lifting as I'm sure most don't maintain a journal for years (probably good info for those who can).

Contemplating a return to the stage in the masters division myself but will similarly have to see how the fat comes off.

Looks like you picked up speed on that back workout!

Are you doing the cardio directly after the weights? I know many are for that to increase chances of fat as fuel but I always felt taking the blood out of the area you just trained was a bad idea. Just my opinion of course.

I have lost 15 pounds and dropped two inches on my waist on this cut cycle.
I am pleased as to the rate of weight loss.
I am well on target to hit my goal of 220 by middle of November.

Also I have noticed no loss of strength.
I was concerned about that due to that I am running way below maintenance on this diet.

Lots of volume with that chest. shoulders, and tricep workout! Liking the leg workout as well. I'm not currently doing leg extensions but I always preferred warming up the knees with them. Never liked them at the end of quads as I preferred the synergistic effect of all the other quad exercises warming up the hamstrings. My gym actually got rid of their single leg standing hamstring curl machine. Maybe I'll have to inquire about that as it has not been replaced in a year of dissapearing.

I have now lost 18 pounds and dropped three inches on my waist on this cut cycle.
I am pleased as to the rate of weight loss.
I am well on target to hit my goal of 220 by middle of November.

I am pleased as to the results to this point.
No loss of strength in the gym on any lift and loosing weight at the same time.
That tells me ( hopefully) that the muscle loss during the cut is minimal and what is being lost is mostly fat.

Good news today.
Two months ago I made a bet with my wife that I would be able to get back into my 36 inch waist jeans by the end of October.
I won that bet today.
My bf% as measured by caliper is dropping at an acceptable level.
I am more focused on how I look in a mirror and my bf% then I am about scale numbers.

All together, I am dead on target to hit my 220 lbs goal by the middle of Nov.

Once I hit it I am going to adjust calories and modify set/rep volume and go into a growth protocol training and diet cycle for the next three months.
I will boost calories to 300 above maintenance and adjust as required.
I will monitor bf% and if it starts going up then modify all protocols accordingly.
Then, after three months I am going into a pre-contest training and diet mode and attempt to hit a competitive bf% of 7%.

Then I will be ready I think to stand on a bodybuilding stage and compete in a local contest in the masters div.

I like using upright rows for lateral delt training/development more than I do lateral flys.
Seems to give a better result in my case.

I usually run training cycles of upright rowing and then lateral flys

Makes sense. Heard some prefer a wide grip upright rows to prioritize the medial head. Link worked. Interesting charts that seem to make sense.

I learned from experience that upright rows with a more narrow grip and pulling to the mid chest area cause an intense feeling of stress on my medial delt head.
I do not get the same level of feeling the intensity in the muscle when I do lateral flys.
