I think it's a good idea. I'm a fan of cycling rep ranges (3X8, 3X5, 3X3, each for three weeks)

Thanks for the input Ross. That sounds like a good idea. Cover all your bases.

You could even go as high as 12-15 reps. No matter what you will feel it. Change is good sometimes.

Friday Jan 30th/2009

Weight: 190.0lb Up again... I hope its just a fluctuation.

-95lb x 4
-115lb x 3
-135lb x 2
-155lb x 2
-135lb 6x2
-135lb x 5 (strict press)

I love push press.


Tricep Deadlift

60lb 2x10, 1x6


Pendlay Rows

Good old barbell rows. Haven't done these for a while.

*edit* I forgot that we did some DB curls as well *edit*

Well I will probably end up switching my program up in a couple weeks and start cycling rep ranges. I might do something like:

3 weeks @ 3-4 x 10-12reps
3 weeks @ 3-5 x 5-8
3 weeks @ 7 x 1

You just reminded me about Pendlay rows...I need to add those in next week also.

Are you going to do some 1RMs before switching routines to gauge progress?

Well the program I'm on now does a 1RM at least once every 3 weeks. But yes I should test all the big lifts before i start so I can monitor the progress.

Sunday Feb 1st/2008

Weight: 191.0lb ... Up again. Uh oh.

Good Mornings
bar x 6
115lb x 5
135lb x 4
165lb x 4
185lb x 3
205lb x 2
225lb x 1
245lb x 1
265lb x 1
245lb x 2
225lb x 3

Well I was having trouble with these today. How do you define when a good morning becomes more of a squat? The heavier I go the more I have a tendancy to turn it into a pin squat. I have the pin set at hip height. I tried one setting lower but that seemed way too low. Any advice for me? I'm relatively new to good mornings.


Box Squat Pistols
bw 4x10


Hanging Leg Raises
bw x10,9,8,6

Well my weight is up and over my start weight so now I'm a bit worried.

^^^ I wish you'd told me that before. In all the articles I skimmed I never picked on that and because of this laziness of mine I never knew how to do that exercise till one day I just experimented with sticking my ass out and got an idea of what it should be!!! hahahahha...
