Beginning Thoughts:
Moved back to school today. I got my diet in order although my order from Protein Factory is gonna be arriving in a couple of days. So I went and bought the whey that WalMart sells. Short summary: Taste sucks balls. Other than that though, diet is holding up A-Ok
Workout:
Tired out Front Box Squats today. Killer stuff. Used 185 for sets of 3 and then reduced down to 175 for sets of 5.

Moved on to Speed Deadlifts @ 70% of my 1RM for many many singles. My calluses have still not healed so it was damn difficult to grip the bar. Tearing 3 calluses off both hands is not good.

Then I did some Walking Lunges with 30's and finished up with some Ab Work.

Overall Impression:
I think today was a decent session. Front Box Squats were damn hard. I worry about my next Lower workout because I don't know how I will do Rack Deadlifts with my calluses in such shape...I might take much less weight on Rack Deadlifts if my hand hurts and I can't grip the bar properly.

I hope everyone had a good weekend!

Hmmm...I am thinking of using wrist straps. I think they'll help more because they can act as cushioning gloves and help with transferring some of the weight off my hands..

Umm...yeah rack deads were extremely heavy. I don't think I'll be able to top them for a while lol...

regarding the squats...yeah the butt wink is there. I have to be careful about that. I keep worrying about the depth police here lol....no, speaking of depth, after sitting on that 4.5 hour flight from mumbai to dubai and then the 17 hour flight from dubai to houston (direct flight) i was so dehydrated and malnutritioned that my entire body is extremely stiff and i feel like an old man lol....im taking today as an off. i'll do my upper 1 tomorrow. now that i have a somewhat set schedule and i dont need to juggle workouts as much i have more option to take rest days and still keep the cycle rolling

You should always try to get up and move around when you can on a long flight. Especially if you're dehydrated.

I know....I just slept like a rock throughout the 17 hour flight (I really like sleeping on planes for some reason) and I watched 2 movies on the 4 hour flight. LOL....

Beginning Thoughts:
I got my whey from Protein Factory today. Tastes awesome. Definitely the best protein I have ever ordered for. I am very pleased with this.
Workout:
I was supposed to do Incline Dumbbell Bench Presses for sets of 3 and then sets of 5. I decided to be cautious and take 75 lbs in each hand. Note: my max so far on incline bench (db) has been 80 lbs x 6 reps or something. So, anyways, I took 75 and I did sets of 3 pretty easy. I was technically supposed to reduce the weight and do sets of 5. But I decided to just stick with 75's and crank out the 5 rep sets. Good stuff IMO. I almost blanked out on one of the sets because I didn't breathe. Damn that scared me!

I moved onto Push-ups and Cable Rows, Facepulls and some shoulder rehab exercises I had done a while ago.

Incline Dumbbell Bench Press 75 lbs x 5 reps:

Overall Impression:
I can't fathom why but my lower body is ridiculously sore today. I have never had my lower body this sore - even when I was doing the GVT program! My abs are hurting and it difficult to laugh without wincing it pain! I hope this stuff clears out by tomorrow because I intend on doing my lower 2. Otherwise I will be forced to take another day off like I did yesterday. Funny thing is that my trap muscles are sore...I think this is because of the dehydration I experienced earlier this week. I'm gonna continue drinking 4-5 liters of water (as I have been doing for the past 3 days) and hope for the best...

I hope everyone is having a good week!

Excellent control with the DBs. Looks like you could probably lift signifcantly more then that.

I agree with Iron , looks like you could have hit 10 reps easily ( I know that's not your plain) or even gone up to 85lbs for 5.
