Monday Oct 1/ 2007

Squats
bar x 6 (warmup)
115lbs x 5 (warmup)
135lbs x3 (warmup)
165lbs x1 (warmup)
190lbs 3x5

Can't believe these are still going up but they are. I said at the beginning to my buddy that I'll be real happy when I'm doing
205lbs 3x5 and I'm damn close. Sweet!

Deads
40kg x 6 (warmup)
60kg x 4 (warmup)
80kg x 2 (warmup)
117.5kg x5

Still struggling with the form but its not hurting so I don't know if its a huge problem or not. Legs want to straighten out first then back...


Standing Military Press

bar x 8 (warmup)
75lbs x 5 (warmup)
105lbs 3x5

This was a pretty good struggle to the last rep but I squeezed it out. Nice.

Pull ups

BW+ 17.5lbs 3x5

I think this and presses are hurting my elbow...I'm kinda worried about this. Also, was wondering about switching grips. Currently I'm doing hamemr grip but was wondering what the difference between that and standard grip (like holding a barbell for curls) would be?

Standing Calf Raises

90lbs x 8 (warmup)
180lbs x 6 (warmup)
255lbs 3x10

Default Max Day

Wednesday Oct 10/07

We decided to try a max test day since we've been doing this for about 6 weeks now. Here are the results...


Workout A

bench
- bar x a few? (warmup/stretch)
- 115lbs x 5 (warmup)
-135lbs x 3 (warmup)
-165lbs x 1 (weight acclimation)
-185lbs x 1 (weight acclimation Sort of?)
-205lbs x 1 (missed...damnit)
-195lbs x 1 (missed again...too burnt out)

Well can't say I'm exactly happy with this since I hammered 185lbs no problem. Felt really strong then went to 205lbs and just sucked out hardcore. I struggled on 205lbs for a while and burnt myself out pretty bad so I couldn't do 195lbs which I'm sure I could have done if I had just gone from 185 to 195 directly. Grrr, what a piss off. I may add in a bench set on friday to try this again. I really wanted to crack that 200 barrier.

squats
- bar x 10 ish (warmup/stretch)
- 135lbs x 5 (warmup)
- 185lbs x 1 (weight acclimation)
- 205lbs x 1 (max attempt ... nailed it)
- 225lbs x 1 (max attempt ...quite solid)
- 245lbs x 1 (missed)
- 235lbs x 1 (missed)

Well I'm happy I got the 225lbs but I think I got a little over anxious with the 20lb jump to 245lbs. I think had I gone directly to 235lbs from 225lbs I would have got it. O well, good progress here from last year. Up 20lbs on my max. Gotta learn how to read my body a little better.

standing rows
- bar x 8 (warmup)
- 115lbs x 3 (warmup)
- 135lbs x 3 (weight acclimation)
- 155lbs x 3 (3RM max attempt...easy)
- 165lbs x 3 (3RM max attempt...nailed it)
- 175lbs x 3 (3RM max attempt...finished strong)
- 185lbs x 3 (3RM max attemnt... form slipped)

I will call 175lbs my new 3RM for this. Feeling pretty strong about that. Didn't think I'd get that high.


Accessory Lifts

Dips
I called these off cause my elbow was killing me.


Cable Ab pull down

- 80bs x10 (warmup)
- 130lbs 3x10


Diet:


10:30am - Weight Gainer

noon - spag. and chicken breast

2pm - double burger, 2 ephedrine, energy drink

2:30 - Workout

PWO- shake

PPWO - Chunky Beef Soup

6:30 - beans and tuna

8:30 - shake

Friday Oct 12/ 2007

Bench
bar x 8 (warmup)
115lbs x 5 (warmup)
155lbs x1 (weight acclimation)
165lbs 3x5

I was gonna do another max day but I wasn't recovered completely so I just did my 3x5. Worked out ok.

Deads
40kg x 6 (warmup)
80kg x 4 (warmup)
120kg x 1 (weight acclimation)
140kg x 1 (new PR!) --> 308lbs

Squats
bar x 8 (warmup)
115lbs x 5 (warmup)
135lbs x4 (warmup)
195lbs 3x5

Standing Military Press
bar x 8 (warmup)
75lbs x 3 (warmup)
105lbs x 3
115lbs x 3 (new 3RM)

This could have been better but I did that bench exercise today so it kinda sucked. O well, it'll be better next time.

Pull ups

BW

I reset to just my body weight and changed my grip to regular style. I'm hoping this helps my elbows.


Standing Calf Raises

90lbs x 10 (warmup)
180lbs x 6 (warmup)
260lbs 3x10

I can't remember what I ate cause that was yesterday but it was something similar to my usual. So use your imagination... lol
