Saturday 4/21/07

Squats A2G --------------- 3x5 155 lbs
Military Press -------------- 5x4x4 135 lbs
Rows ---------------------- 3x5 135 lbs

Chin-ups ------------------- 1x8 1x7

One arm dumbbell curls ---- 1x8 30 lbs

Notes:
Great workout Saturday. I worked hard, but didn't over do it. And it was real quiet at the gym. Just a couple of the regulars and myself had the place to ourselves. I seem to get into a better rhythm and better focused when there's not a lot of people around.

Tuesday 4/24/07

Squat A2G -------------- 3x5 160 lbs
Bench Press ------------- 3x5 210 lbs
Deadlift ----------------- 1x5 185 lbs

Dips --------------------- 1x8 Bodyweight

Notes:
Deep Squats are getting challenging. It's amazing how much more work it takes to do A2G compared to parallel. I was up to 225 lbs parallel and 160 lbs A2G is feeling almost as hard. Same with Deadlift, now that I'm doing them with what I believe is better technique, less weight is more challenging and much easier on my back.

Tried Dips with just bodyweight and the shoulder still hurt, so I'll stop them. I did Skull Crushers with light weight to get used to them since I've never done them before. I'll find my weight next BP/DL workout.

Chin-ups ------------------- 1x8 1x7


Saturday 4/28/07

Squat A2G ------------------ 3x5 170 lbs
Bench Press ----------------- 1x5 1x3 1x2 1x5 210 lbs
Deadlift --------------------- 1x5 195 lbs

Skull Chushers ------------- 1x8 50 lbs 1x8 60 lbs

One arm dumbbell curls ----- 1x8 40 lbs
Cable Tri Extensions ------- 1x8 160
One arm dumbbell curls ----- 1x8 40 lbs
Cable Tri Extensions ------- 1x8 160

Notes:
I had some trouble with my second set of Bench Press. I'm just about at my limit and I think I did the second set too soon after the first. I took a short rest and finished the set. Then I took extra time before the third set and barely finished it. I'm pushing real hard on Military Press and Bench Press for the past few workouts for each. My right shoulder is still not 100% (from dipping I think) and I think it's affecting MP and BP, but it's getting better.

Still finding my way with Skull Crushers.

Take your time with the skulls to make sure your form is good to go as you don't want to have a problem at the wrong time. It looks like you are gaining on your program. Good stuff and keep it up.

Thanks for the Skull Crusher advice Widdoes. I already think the 60 lbs was too much for my first week. I found a bunch of my reps were not good form.

And thanks for checking out my journal. All you senior members are part of my motivation to try to "get it right".

Tuesday 5/1/07

Squat A2G ------------------ 3x5 175 lbs
Military Press --------------- 3x5 120 lbs
Rows ----------------------- 3x5 140 lbs

Chin-ups -------------------- 2x8

Notes:
I reset down to 120 lbs for Military Press. I wasn't getting anywhere at 135 lbs. I plan to progress in 2 lbs increments and see what happens. I think I had a little extra "gas in the tank" by not straining with MP and was able to do solid sets of Rows and Chin-ups.

Edit: Squats were really 170. I messed up loading the bar.

Dude, you are getting it right. Just remember to take your time and not push too far too fast. The results will come with time especially if your form is squared away. Enjoy!!

Thursday 5/3/07

Squat A2G ------------- 3x5 175 lbs
Bench Press ------------ 3x5 190 lbs
Deadlift ---------------- 1x5 205 lbs

Skull Crushers ---------- 2x8 50 lbs

Notes:
I went down for Bench Press, I was stuck at 210, I think mostly because of my shoulder.

My shoulder is still giving me trouble. I haven't done pushups in a long time trying to rest it, and I stopped doing dips. I really do not want to go through another "injury timeout" like I did for my back. I know some of the weight I've gained in the past few months is fat. So, I was thinking about cutting for a month, with the idea that I'll still lift, but with the goal of burning some fat while maintaining as much muscle as I can.

I haven't put a new plan together yet, and I haven't paid too much attention to the cutting posts that were posted before I found bb.net, so I'll research and figure out how to proceed. I'm thinking I might be able to take it easy on my shoulder without stopping Military and Bench Presses. Or if I do stop the Presses, it will be OK because I will not be interested in progression for a month.

But I'll continue with this program until I have a new plan.
