Two weeks from school, nice one! I really hope your final presentation went well for you mate.
Super impressive session Line, you've absolutely caned those delts of yours with some huge exercises and finished with some serious shrugs. Shoulders fragged! I expect nothing less than hard and heavy from you mate, you got what it takes bro!
Flex C - Thanks man, as for the dumbell shrugs: my gym doesn't have dumbells over 100's! When I go back to PSU Main Campus I'll have up to 130's to play with so hopefully they'll last me awhile. Thanks for posting.
Peanut - Thanks man, to be honest though, I really wanted to get the 100's up for DB presses. Look for it in the very near future!
Papi - Well yeah, of course my shoulders are strong; I'm sexy
Hypo - I appreciate the compliment and believe me, I'm trying to keep my weights as heavy as possible despite not being able to train frequently or diet correctly. Glad you're checking the log out, be sure to stick around for bulking season!
Philo - Thanks for stopping by brother
Q - You calling me "the man" is truly awesome, makes me feel great brother. Muscular endurance is something I'm really working on, especially with my big bulk approaching soon. After I make it through these two weeks of hell at work I'll be leaving it ALL in the gym, EVERY time I go in :weightlifer:
mvsf1 - LOL, yeah man I recovered today but I can't lie: my delts were fucking dying today when pressing furniture over my head! Thanks for stopping by man
Evo - I definately tried to kill my delts and was thinking of all you guys when putting myself through that session. My good friends here such as yourself are truly my inspiration and I can't weight to get ahold of some heavier DB's in a few weeks at my school gym!
TO - Big compliment coming from the Big Man himself! Thanks for stopping by bro, I'll try to keep dem weights damn high for you guys
Bomb - It's great that I inspire you man and I hope your training continues to run as smoothly as possible. Glad you stopped by
Quick Update: 8.9.06
Well, I had a decent day at work today but I'm afraid tomorrow and friday might be hell (I may be going across four states in the next few days). I'll do my best to keep up with my training and keep you guys updated. I'm seriously bowled over by the response from you guys here and I'll do my damndest to update you and keep posting in your logs during the next few hellish weeks of work. Take care everyone, hopefully I can update tomorrow
Thanks a lot, brother. Today I did just that after work; I relaxed. I got home at around 6pm (it's now just after 9pm here) and spent some time with the family and took my sister to grab some chinese food. I was going to workout but I have to be up at 3:30am to drive across a few states for tomorrow's job. Oh well, it'll be good money and I should be back in time to blast chest and arms.Originally Posted by mvsf1
Thanks for keeping up, see you guys tomorrow
Palmetto - Yeah budddy! Can't wait for school to start...this may become a two-part log then; one for bodybuilding and one for sexy-partying exploits! Stay tuned!
MM - It means a lot that you take the time to post here and that you wish me and my family well; enjoy today's session
Today went pretty well at work, minus traffic coming back which turned an 8 hour day into an 11 hour day pretty easily. Still, I didn't have to over-exert myself and got a nap to and from the job so I was rested and ready to hit the weight today.
I've felt like I've sorta been pussy-footing around lately in my chest training when it comes to doing 2 BB movements in the same workout; I'm afraid my weight will drop and it's a bit of an ego thing. Today though I blasted through any worries and had a killer chest and tri's session. I did very little for bi's at the end, but nothing substantial. Basically, my biceps outgrow my tri's easily and carrying furniture and boxes all day at work taxes them more than you'd imagine as is. Anyways, here's today's session...
