Tuesday Sept 2nd/2008

My buddy got sick of my messing around and said we're starting the split today. He programmed most of it with a few suggestions from me. I think it should work well for a while at least. He has started the keto diet. I may in a couple weeks.


ME Deads
-60kg x 5
-80kg x 4
-100kg x 3
-120kg x 2
-140kg x 1
-150kg x 1
-155kg x 1
-160kg x 1

155 and 160 were both very tough pulls. I think I almost blacked out on both of them. I may try for a new PR next ME deads day.

DE Parallel Box Front Squats
-bar x 5
-95lbs x 3
-115lbs 8x3

Started off pretty awkward but I worked up to pretty good speed.

Planks
front plank - 45s
side plank - 30s each
front plank - 45s

I've never tried planks before but I can definately see why you would do them now.


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

I know I technically did obliques with side planks but that was stability work. This is more actual oblique strengthening. I don't know how to say it properly.

Thougths

The workout was just over an hour which is awesome. I didn't feel like I was dying at the end of this workout (always a bonus... lol). I think this program should work pretty well.

Nice deads !!

Planks are a very good exercise to add in as a regular.

Thursday Sept 4th/2008

Weight: 182.4lbs (down 2lbs from last time... so was my buddy though so maybe its just calibration)

DE MP
-bar x 5
-65lbs x 4
-85lbs 6x3 normal grip
-85lbs 2x3 very close grip


DE Bench
-bar x 5
-95lbs x 5
-115lbs 6x3 various grips

Well I played around with the grips hoping my shoulder would settle in...

Light Shoulder Band Work
Not really sure what exactly I should be doing here.


Pull-ups
bw x 3,5,5,7

Trying to feel out how the shoulder was doing and I stopped really focusing on reps.

Leg Raises
Hurts too much. F that.

Cable Crunches
140bls x 10
150lbs x 10
160lbs x 10
170lbs x 10

Probably stick with these for a while.

Thougths

Well I could feel something going on in my shoulder. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if it was good or bad. I'll let y'all know.

doesn't seem like you ever do any db work....maybe you should rotate some in...

youtube: rear flyes, facepulls, prone trap raises, straight arm pulldowns, band pullaparts, behind the head band pulldowns..


all good for maintaining shoulder health.

I would like to do DB work but its very awkward to do ME DB work I find. Maybe I'll just have to suck it up and do it.

Thanks for the search tips Pity, I looked them up and have some good ideas now. I think I need to get a band for home so I can do some of those things on off days.

i don't really see a reason to do a DE mp and bench on the same day...just do de bench, and a db shoulder press...or even an arnold press.

Well the reason I did DE for both was because I would usually do ME Press and DE bench but I didn't want to go ME due to my shoulder.
