I just noticed the new name. I like it, much shorter and to the point. Thanks Eric (I assume).

I know West Side doesn't really call for Military Pressing but I think its a very functional lift so I keep it around. One day when I get my base strength down solid I'd like to start some strong man training.

Heading back to the gym 2nite... ME Squat day.... I had a decent sleep last night and I'm feeling almost back to normal. Oh yeah, thought I should report that my shoulder feels fine 2 days after my heavy(ish) BB bench work. Very cool. Mind you, my tris are still sore as hell.. lol but in a good way.

Thursday Oct 9th/2008 - Lower 2


ME Box Squat
-bar x 5
-135lbs x 5
-185lbs x 3
-205lbs x 2
-225lbs x 1
-245lbs x 1
-265lbs x 1
-275lbs x 1
-285lbs x 1 (PR!)
-245lbs x 3

Well I've never done heavy box squats so this was something new. What do ya know... PR! It was about a parallel box so that helped but considering it was the first time trying these I thought it went pretty damn good.

Power Cleans
bar x 5
40kg x 5
50kg x 5
60kg x 3
70kg x 2
80kg x 0

Absolutely wiped after squats so these were pretty weak.

Chin Ups with raised legs
3x5

BB Curls
bar x 10
65lbs x 10,9,8

The bicep pump...for the b1tches. lol

Thougths

A pretty good day if I must say so myself.

Friday Oct 10th/2008 - Upper 2

Weighed out at 183.8lbs. I'm losing weight apparently... despite eating a shit ton. I am getting stronger and I feel thinner then usual so I'll take it.

ME CG BB Military Press
bar x 8
75lbs x 5
95lbs x 3
115lbs x 2
135lbs x 1
155lbs x 1 (5lb PR!)
155lbs x 1 (tried another and failed so I push pressed it)
135lbs x 3

I switched to close grip on this and OMG what a difference. It feels so much more natural for me and my elbows automatically tuck themselves forward. Besides the fact that I hit a new PR. This was strict press not push press, btw. I definately feel that those heavy push presses helped my strict press though by acclimating my body to the weight and some hardcore tri work.


DE BB CG Bench Press
bar x 8
95lbs x 5
125lbs 7x3

Nothing to report except for on one set I farted and had a hard time finishing my set cause I was laughin too hard. hahhahahaha

Good Mornings
bar x 5
95lbs x 5
115lbs x 5
135lbs x 3
155lbs 3x5
175lbs 2x5

These felt real solid.

Supine Rows
bw - 4x9,8,7,6

Never done these before... I think thats what they are called where you pull yourself up to a bar from underneath. Different.. I found it to be more bicep work then lat or back though.


Thougths

Solid PR today on press. I feel like I could be getting back on track with my pressing movements altogether now. Sweet. Very happy with this new found love of my life: close grip work. lol
