Ya it still works with the 2 different sized monitors. You can pick a resolution for each. It kinda looks funky with two different resolutions for each (the one is old) but it lets you multitask alot better. One day, I'll get another 22" widescreen. Then I'll have something pretty dang sweet.


BTW, when aren't you around? lol

I know how you feel. When I get off schedule it can take me days to get back into routine. Then by that time its the weekend again and I get my schedule all F*ed up again. lol

Thursday Oct 2nd/2008 - Lower 2



ME Squat
-bar x 5
-135lbs x 5
-185lbs x 3
-205lbs x 2
-225lbs x 1
-255lbs x 1
-275lbs x 1 (old PR)
-280lbs x 1 (5lb PR!)
-275lbs x 1 (grinder!)

Was feeling right on today. Lots of carbs and huge chicken breasts helped keep my energy up. 280 felt quite solid. I think 285 is just around the corner. Score.

Power Cleans
bar x 5
40kg x 5
50kg x 5
60kg x 3
70kg x 3
80kg x 3
85kg 2x1

Felt stronger on cleans today. Kinda getting the hang of them. I'd like to hit 100kg sometime... I don't really have a deadline for it but I think it'd be a good place to be. Although I may end up switching these out for speed deads pretty sweet.

Hanging Leg Raises
1 x 8
2 x 6

Well I tried the regular wide pull-up grip and my shoulder doesn't like that so I switched to a close grip with bent elbow hang thing... if that makes any sense. I held myself up with my bis and did the leg raises. Its alot harder that normal and my bicep endurance is more of the limiting factor then abs.


Thougths

Got the squat PR I was hoping for and feel good about it. A short and solid day all.

Nice Squat PR.

Why did you drop back to 275 after you did the 280 ?

Cause I thought that would be all I would be able to do. I know from my experiences that on my 3rd heavy set my energy can be hit and miss. 280 was really solid but I know not to get too overzealous on the third set. Judging by how slowly the 3rd set went up, I think it was the right choice.

Anyways, it was just what i felt would be my limit at that time.

^^^That was absolutely a good approach. When it comes to heavy singles that was a very good workout.

If your figure the 280 was you 'best' lift for that day..not to mention a pr...then you got in four singles at 90% or above.

And the 275 is around 98%! And you hit it twice. Good workout.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
