Chest Day today... have to do a little improv lifting-wise this week. Wednesday - Chest ; Thursday - Back ; Saturday - Arms
Then Chest again on Monday. Hectic schedule coming up, so only beach muscles these next two weeks.
Next Thursday through Sunday will be a tennis tournament I'm competing in, so that'll have to suffice as my workout.
On target with diet, so no worries there.


Current pic and a collage I made for this year, 2008:
(Don't know if you can see it on the current pic, but I got a huge bruise on my right arm lower tricep from crashing trying the spins on wakeboard)

haha, I'm actually wearing shorts, but thought it would be funny to put the little black censor bar in there.

Back Day today
(start with heaviest weight manageable and decrease weight each set)

Bent Over Rows 6, 8, 10, 12, 15 reps
Bench Rows 6, 8, 10, 12, 15
Pull Ups 5, 7, 7, 10, 9
Bent Over Laterals 6, 8, 10, 12, 15

I sure am glad I don't rely on the local high school gym for weights anymore. I normally go there on back day because I don't have any cable machines in my apartment for seated rows or pulldowns. However, the gym was closed at the usual 6 PM I have been going to workout at.
For pullups, I improvised a little bit by laying the bar across the top of the squat rack and using some bands to keep the bar from accidentally sliding up and off the rack while doing pullups. Worked decently enough, but my wrists started hurting a little since the bar would twist a little bit.

Watching the U.S. Open match between Roddick and Djokovic.. close match

^^^ it's all anticipation and muscle memory, plus Djokovic is the number 3 player in the world.

found out it's gonna be over $1000 to fix my car's camshaft. Looks like I'll be eating fresh produce from Wal-Mart now :(

I wondering why you start off with the heaviest weight then go down ?

Do you warm up first or just jump right into the heavy stuff ?

2 sets of warmup first, but I'm just following the workout included with the diet at www.cutdiet.com

it's a different stress on the muscles. I'm no good at explaining the reasoning behind it, just that it is working for me. I'm getting great results from this program, so I figure I'm not gonna fix what's not broken.

besides, something's going right because I haven't had this kind of success (physique-wise) on any other program. I've had great strength increases using other programs like the 5x5 or DC training, but not as good "bodybuilder" success.

been lifting since I was 19, now 23. before that it was all sports-specific tennis training with no weight lifting, one of the regrets of the past.

did arm day yesterday:
dips + dumbbell curls superset
cable triceps pulldown + cable curls superset
shrugs

was going to do arm day today, but played grueling tennis match today and going to be moving furniture.

will be doing leg day tomorrow.
