Oh ya, that tiling time doesn't include grout/sealing either. I just cut/laid 50 sq ft.

Wednesday July 24th/2008

Weight: 178.5lbs down 1lb according to last time. I think its probably due mostly to sweating my ballz off laying tile in my hot ass apartment.

Deads
-60kg x 5
-80kg x 3
-100kg x 2
-120kg x 1
-140kg x 1
-160kg x 0,0
-150kg x 1 (old PR)
-155kg x 1 (5kg PR)

Well I was looking for 160kg as you can see but couldn't pull it off. I think it has alot to do with the tiling...everthing you do is bent over and its real hard on the low back. I'm going to try again next week probably. Juding by the numbers I think 160kg should be possible.

Power Cleans
bar x 5
40kg x 5
50kg 2x5

Well I think the new program is going to incorporate some cleans so I thought it might be a good day to practice.

DE Push Press
- bar x 5
- 95lbs 6x2

Well I think we'll be incorporating these as well so I thought I would try out some dynamic work. Felt good.

We left it here for the day. Went out for beer/pizza after. What a good combo.

Thougths

Well it felt really nice to hit a PR and then just try some new movements. It was a short workout, which always feels good. I think this new program is going to be just what the doctor ordered.

Friday July 25/2008

Bench
- bar x 6
-135lbs x 4
-185lbs x 2
-205lbs x 1
-225lbs x 1
-245lbs x 0
-225lbs x 0
-185lbs x 3

I dunno again. I really should have 245lbs for sure but I keep missing. After failing twice in a row I really couldn't do shit after that.

Squats
- bar x 5
- 135lbs x 5
- 185lbs x 3
- 205lbs x 1
- 225lbs x 1
- 245lbs x 1
- 265lbs x 1 (old PR)
- 275lbs x 0 (arg)
- 225lbs x 3
- 245lbs x 3

Missed this one too.


BB P.Rows
-bar x 6
-30kg x 5
-40kg x 3
-55kg x 3
-65kg 4x8


Hanging Leg Raises
bw 2x8 1x7

Really gotta improve these.

Pallof Press - variation

Skipped. Cables all full.


Thougths

Well I have determined that i have to stop trying to max out because I seem to overestimate myself and then once I fail once on an exercise then I can't put in any good solid work after that. I am going to have to shoot for stuff that I absolutely know I can hit because otherwise I dont' think it leaves much for an effective workout.

Tuesday July 29/2008

Squats
- bar x 5
- 135lbs x 5
- 185lbs x 3
- 205lbs x 1
- 225lbs x 1
- 245lbs x 1
- 255lbs x 1
- 265lbs x 1, x1 (old PR)
- 245lbs x 2

Now I'm damn sure I can squat more then 265lbs with the proper warm up sets. Happy with this result.

Bench
- bar x 8
-135lbs x 5
-185lbs x 2
-205lbs x 1
-225lbs 3x1
-205lbs x 3

Well I'm pretty happy with this result as well.

BB P.Rows
30kg x 5
40kg x 4
50kg x 3
65g 4x8

Repeated. Couldn't find the 1.25kg plates.

Dips
bw x 5
bw+25lbs x 8
bw+35lbs x 8
bw+45lbs x 5

I was surprised at my performance here. Usually on heavy bench days dips suck. Maybe the low volume bench helped.

Pull-Ups
bw x 5,5,4

Burned out from rows and just tired at the end.


Thougths

Well I'm kind of at an inter-program stage right now. We haven't fully switched to the 4 day workout. We're kinda of doing our same exercise layout as before with a sort of ME/DE style. Mostly ME so far... only have tried a few DE movements.

Not sure when we're fully going to implement the new program. I was hoping to have my kitchen fully back together so I can finally get my diet really solid again and start making (hopefully) some serious gains again.

Thanks Pity. My kitchen is finally almost ready to put the appliances back in their spots. I just have to seal the grout and they can go back! Yay to having a good diet again!
