Military Press Day
Cycle 11


Overall Impression:
nice workout i think
The Workout:
Standing Barbell Military Press
- bar x 4 reps x 3 sets
- 95 lbs x 3 reps
- 115 lbs x 2 reps
- 135 lbs x 3 reps
- 140 lbs x 3 reps
- 145 lbs x 3 reps
- 150 lbs x 2 reps
- 155 lbs x 1 rep x 2 sets
- 135 lbs x 3 reps
all rest intervals were 3-4 minutes. this is quality volume training. 135, 140 and 145 were pretty easy. on 150, at midpoint i just gave way. on 155, the first time i think i kinda used some leg drive. so i did another set. the second set was ball breaking. i got stuck at midpoint for what seemed like eternity and i must've kept all my muscles so tight that my right knee area started hurting badly like how it sometimes does when i squat really heavy for many many sets. it hurt just left of the knee cap area. a kinda dull pain. this isnt new to me...ive felt this a lot when i was on the texas method. ill apply some balm to it later on...nonetheless, i think from the last time i did quality work my strength has improved greatly. im happy.

EDT Training @ 15 minute Time Block
- Dumbbell Rows @ 75 lbs = 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 +5 = 25 reps
- Dumbbell Press @ 65 lbs = 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 25 reps
ive been doing this for the last 7 weeks...im trying to see if its worth doing something different...maybe 4 sets of pyramiding weights and reps...12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps perhaps....i dunno...EDT type thing has worked well for me so far...i was also damn tired after military presses so i think ill just stick to EDT for a couple more training sessions.

Facepulls
- 70 lbs x 10 reps x 2 sets

Ab Work
- Lat Pull Down Sit-Ups = 70 lbs x 8 reps x 2 sets

just the military press section of the workout took me 40 minutes or so. the total workout was like 10 minutes over an hour or something..yeah it is a lot of sets. pretty tiring.

Be careful with the knees. I just got back with the doc and they told me I have an arthritic right knee with bone spurs and possible ligament damage. I have an MRI consult within the next couple of days. Guess squats will have to wait a little bit.

im sorry to hear that. my right knee wasnt hurting a lot or rather at all after my workout yesterday (which is where i think i hurt it) but then last night i ran like half a mile playing flag football and then everytime i sit down right when my ass is about to hit the seat it gives me this dull sharp pain. same thing happens when i get up. but if im sitting cross legged or doing any of my regular stretches for hams and quads both there's no problem. no pain. its like my knee itself is sore but not quite. ive never felt this before so i dont know what to make of it. the only thing close to this is when i guess my knees got sore from squatting 3x a week on the texas method. but even then it wasnt so bad. i wonder whats wrong...maybe some time off will do me good.

Might be a good idea to get it checked out Anuj, better safe than sorry.
