No, I'm not that skilled. lol I am selecting the components though, but I think I'll get the shop to put it together. I want a computer that can do some 3-d rendering with ease. Also it seems unless you have a pretty nice setup you might as well forget about running vista smoothly.

I *hate* running vista on my gf's laptop. SOOOO slow.

*edit* Woohoo, 500th post in this thread!! *edit*

I'm looking to buy a system that will last me hopefully 4 years so I can justify the $.

I'm going with 4GB RAM for sure, I'm thinkin a quad core processor... the Intels are nice and faster but the AMDs are quite a bit cheaper. So I'm still on the fence there.

I'll probably go with 1TB of storage so I know I'll have enough. I'm going with a good video card (512mb min.. not sure which yet). Also I'm probably going for the 22in wide monitor and maybe if I keep my old I can keep it for a 2nd.... lol


But ya, thats neither here nor there. lol

Monday Sept 29th/2008 - Lower 1


Deads
-60kg x 5
-80kg x 4
-100kg x 3
-120kg x 1
-140kg x 1
-160kg 2x1
-165kg x 1 (old PR)

Pretty happy about this outcome. Makes me pretty confident that I should be able to hit 170kg next week.

DE Parallel Box Squats

-bar x 5
-95lbs x 5
-115lbs x 3
-135lbs x 3
-155lbs 8x3 (~60%)

I worked out pausing on the box and allowing my weight to fully sit onto the box. This made a huge difference. I could definately feel the muscles activating on the acceleration out of the hole.

Planks
front plank - 1:15 min
side plank - 60s each
front plank - 1:15min
side plank - 60s each

Side planks are killer!

Oblique Work - Cable Twist
3x10 - 40lbs, 45lbs, 50lbs

Will go a little heavier next time.


Thougths

The workout went pretty well today I thought.

Side note: I bought a computer after work today. Here are the specs:

-Intel Q6600 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad processor
-4GB DDR2 Ram
-ASUS Mobo, GB Lan, Firewire, etc etc
-750GB Hard-drive
-20x DVD burner w/ lightscribe
-Geforce 9800GT 512mb graphics card
-22" widescreen monitor

Should work well for me I believe. It will definately kick the ass of my old computer. Here it is to compare:

-2.9Ghz Single core intel
-160GB HD
-512mb DDR RAM
-no graphics card
-17" LCD

You should get a splitter and use both monitors. That's what I'll do when I end up building my computer. Definitely worth it IMO...

Tuesday Sept 30th/2008 - Upper 1

Weight: 183.8lbs

ME DB Bench Press
-22.5lbs x 8
-30lbs x 5
-40lbs x 5
-50lbs x 3
-60lbs x 3
-70lbs x 3
-75lbs x 5
-80lbs x 3
-70lbs x 5

Upped the weight a bit on DBs this time. I should probably make lots of PRs with this since I have never really done them heavy before. How much should a guy be DB pressing compared to BB?

BB Push Press
45lbs x 5
75lbs x 4
95lbs x 3
115lbs 6x3

I did mostly all CG work but I played with it a bit. My shoulder said no when I got wide so I quit that.

Pull-ups
bw x 3
bw + 10lbs x 3
bw + 10lbs x 3,2
bw + 10lbs x 2
bw (chins) x 4

Well my pull-ups have really fallen off lately. I have been avoiding them so I guess thats what I get.

Overhead Cable Tri Extensions
40lbs x 12
60lbs x 12
80lbs x 12
100lbs x 10,8

High volume = PUMP! Feels nice.

Shoulder Re/Prehab
Front Raises, Standing Flys, Bent over Flys (15lb DBs 2 x 10 each)

Super setted these in with tri work.


Thougths

Well i will continue to work DB presses as much as I can for another couple weeks for sure. Then I may try to ease back into the BB work.

I thought I should mention that my new computer is sweet! I'm loving the dual monitor setup.
