back and shoulders???!?!?! rough fuckin day man. impressive numbers. i dont think i would be ballsy and do them both in the same day. takes too much outta of me. deads r nice, r they off the floor or partials off the rack???
Amped - Thanks and that's awesome you got your tickets. I need to talk to my roommates to see if we can bum his car before I buy mine, but I do plan on going too!
BB - Wow, Ben. I'm honored that motivated you a bit, it means a lot coming from you especially
Quick Update: Today I trained Chest and Arms (and abs) with my workout partner but I'll have to post it up later tonight or tomorrow morning. I may take tomorrow off and train legs on Sunday because they're still brutally sore from my last session, but we'll see.
Wow!! Colossal work Line. Huge Deads and Rows, simply stunning work rate. It's not going to be long before a 200lb Military Press is being crushed either. Supercharged session Line, totally inspiring.
I get this feeling you're really enjoying your sessions mate, coz on paper, they're looking brilliant.
Evo - Thanks brother, the DB rows felt great and I had an incredible tightness and pump and in my lats after my last set there. With each deadlift I did I made sure to really pull and contract my back as fully as possible. These weights should be doing nothing but increasing once I get back into my rhythm. 200 pounds on Seated Military Press is a big goal for me but to be honest I really want to put up 2 plates there. Thanks again for the comment, I always enjoy reading your kind and inspiring words here.
Yesterday's Session: I trained Chest, Arms, and Abs yesterday again with my workout partner fairly late last night. I was a bit dissapointed with my strength as a whole but, then again, I'm not a patient person and want to be back to 100% as soon as possible. Still, I felt great after everything was said and done and I threw in some forced reps and some drop sets to really kick things up a notch and prepare myself for the hell to come.

As usual, I stretched each bodypart as I finished them and then headed out. I felt great but at the same time was slightly dissapointed with some of my numbers and hope they improve soon. Today would be my leg day but they're still sore as hell (damn you Front and Regular Squats!) from last session so I'm just going to relax, watch college football, and hit legs hard tomorrow. That's it, thanks for reading everyone
Insperational session "again", the volume coupled with the poundages is really the stuff that defines how you grow, keep up this kind of training bro and man you can only get BIGGER!!!

MM - Thanks, bro. Hopefully those chest movements can grow even more as chest thickness is something I'm trying to improve upon
Amped - Yeah, I'm a fan of high-volume work. And yes, bring on Notre Dame, baby!!! (party at my place next week )
Pumba - Your posts means a lot to me bro, and getting bigger is exactly what the name of the game is. Right now I'm definately feeling heavier than when I got here and my bodyfat is almost identical. Trust me, I'm well on my way!
FF - LOL thanks man but I'm really not that dissapointed with my weights, I just thought I was capable of more. I'm just an impatient guy when it comes to getting my strength back after a layoff; I'll be throwing around some heavy-ass weights soon enough.
Rocky - Sterling, eh? I like it! Glad you had the time to stop by, Dan. I'm so glad to be back in my home gym and, as Evo said, having that "home" feeling is motivating me even more than normal.
UPDATE: Yesterday my legs were sore still so I rested, ate, and watched college football. Today it's full-out go time! Legs later today, expect something like last time but with heavier weights and more calf work. Stay tuned everyone
Leg Dayyyyy! Felt pretty good going into the gym yesterday but had to wait in a 20 minute line to get in. Oh well, got in there and blasted out a leg session that I thought might end with me lying on the gym floor unable to move. I went up in every single exercise from last week whether it was reps or weight so the session was a success...now walking today...that's another story. Hollaaaaaaa...

...That's all she wrote for yesterday. I did my usual stretch after each body part and headed on home. Thanks for reading everyone, I'll get around to your logs a little later in the day.
LINE...lookin' good bro. Those squats are nasty man, just straight up sick. I want to see more weight next time...you think you can hit the 400 lbs. mark?
sweet nector of Elijah!
CRAZY HARDCORE session Line. Squats and Front Squats are freaking unbelievable, thats a shit load of weight. Same with that mighty leg press of yours. Stars! AHH! I love when that happens, except I'm pretty sure that means your about to pass out lol, but look at you, your hardcore self pushed for two more reps after that. Shit man you went up in everything too!!! awesome Job Line, hardcore as always.
20 minute line? pffft, just flex once and they should let you pass by
