Bench press - 2X8, 1X6 185, 195, 205
CH Incline bench - 3X8 135
Standing MP - 3X8 105
Leg Extensions - 3X8 stack -2 plates
Hack squats - 3X8 135, 185, 195

My gym was closed, so I went to a different one. If I had rested more, I could have hit 205 for my 8 set, I think. Benches were closer to the ground...what a world of difference. Overall a very WEIRD workout. It was a good one though...first time I have gone to the gym in months without a plan. I felt lost.

Going to Florida...then Columbia!

Left Columbia last night actually. I'm back home and heading back to school this evening. I was glad I got to work out while on vacation. I got to do some sight seeing which was cool. I live in NC, so SC isn't exactly a crazy road trip, but I went to lots of state parks and historic sites which I hadn't been to before. The weather was crazy yesterday...most of it missed Colombia though.

Seated military press - 2X6, 1X5 135
Squats - 3X8 185

Crappy workout. Took Noxavol and I think it made me sick. I threw up after the second set of squats, came back, did the last set and left the gym. I started too heavy on MP, I think. I will drop the weight back some and hit the target volume...and allow a few weeks for progression. My back felt great until I slept on the floor for a week over spring break, so I am going to start back slowly with squats.

Thanks widdoes...it's good to be back.

Squats - 2X8 135
Hack squats - 2X8 135
Pull ups - 3X6
Lat pulls - 3X8 120, 135, 150
Curls

Weight - 176

Good workout...light leg day, heavy back day. I'm happy with the weights that I'm doing right now. I could go heavier in everything, I think. But I am progressing. I have been focusing almost totally on form, and I'm putting more size because of it. I've shifted to a higher rep scheme and I'm going to start doing cardio to get rid of a couple of unwanted lbs. Probably keep the calories the same.

Squats - 3X12 185, 205, 225
Bench press - 3X8 185, 190, 195
T-Bar Rows - 3X8 80
Arnolds - 2X8, 1X12 55, 60, 45

All of the gyms in town close at 8:00 on Friday apparently. And the school gym closed at 6:00 because of the upcoming holiday..and is closed until Wednesday. First morning workout in a long time.

Damn, this higher rep stuff is KILLING me. I didn't know whether to puke or pass out. Part of the problem is that all I had upon waking (right before going to the gym) was a serving of Freak Fix (aka shit) with 30g of malto. I've never crashed so hard during a workout..it was awful. Afterwards, I went to a burger place and got a baked potato, strawberry cobbler w/ a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a burger (only ate the meat). I was shaking so bad I couldn't eat for 5 minutes. Oh well...hopefully Monday will be better.

Forgot to post Monday's workout

Squat - 3X8 205
Military press - 3X8 115
Bench - a lot of singles @ 185

I ended up doing a lot of singles on bench. The bar at home is FAT and my feet barely touch the floor. 185 felt like 215 because of the lack of leverage. I didn't have a spotter, so I didn't want to push toooo hard..aka get pinned. Shitty workout.

And no time to lift yesterday. I might make it up tonight at 10:00 if I feel like it. Or add it to Friday's workout.
