Looking awesome line! 110s on DB press for shouldaz is awesome bro! Keep up the awesome work line!
BB - Thanks bro. To be honest, I was just feeling really good and decided to go for it after putting up the 95's fairly easily. Figured I might as well build up my strength and push myself if I'm feeling as solid as I was. Hopefully soon I'll be able to use them for more than one working set.
PS: We did upright rows because of you
at your pullups, those need to improve
as for your back work, still quite strong there man, and need I even mention your shoulder strength you bastard
its freakin phenominal, 110s Great work dude, very impressed.
130s on shoulder press?
Tweak - I told you I was out of shape! LOL. Pullups will improve, we'll start doing them regularly so hopefully I'll be repping them out fairly easily with my BW and then hanging additional weight off my fat ass. I thought you'd like the 110 presses though; will be putting those up for 8 in no time at all.
Rocky - I always am motivated after reading your posts in here. Hopefully in a few weeks after I get back into "fightin' shape" we will see some major damage in here. Unfortunately, I think my gym might have gotten rid of our 130 pound DBs so I've got a bad feeling I'm going to out-grow my gym really soon.
Tweak, you're too damn impatient, LOL. Here's today's session. For whatever reason, my right shoulder was bothering me a little bit. That being said, it wasn't a pain more than a minor annoyance (like it was tighter) so I just took it easy the rest of the workout and hopefully it'll heal up before it's time to do more heavy pressing. Here goes...

...and that's it for today. I felt pretty good throughout the session, minus my shoulder which was bothering me a bit. Oh well. My weights are still slowly improving so hopefully I'll be back to pushing 3 bills within my next few sessions. I'll probably stay focused on Flat Bench for a little while yet to build my numbers back up and to add more mass to my pecs; which have always somewhat lagged.
Thanks for reading, everyone. Until next time: Hit 'em up
Tweak - The session felt pretty good but I'm still not impressed with my weights yet. Hopefully since I've put up 300 before I can be doing it for working sets by the end of the month when I get back up there
FF - Thanks, bro. I just came back fairly recently and am finally getting consistent with my training again. Glad you stopped by.
BB - Yeah, volume is pretty high but I'm starting to try and focus on doing more working sets with my higher weights than doing more exercises in general. Weights are finally starting to get there, can't wait to start catching up to you again, LOL.
TO - I was happy with the exercise selection and how I was feeling, even though I usually hate incline bench. I'll be sure to check out your session and see how you fared. I appreciate the post as always.
Here we go. Glex has been feeling under the weather so I went out and did legs late-night style because I woke up late and wanted to get some meals in. It's gone from 66 down to 20 degrees (Fahrenheit) since Saturday here so the gym wasn't very crowded because people here are generally pussies. Anyways, here's what tonight brought...

...and that's all for tonight. Really weird thing happened, on my first set of Squats, both my quads cramped up really funnny. Not like they were dehyrdated, but more like sharp pain across the whole quadriceps complex. I stretched it out and waited a little longer to get fully warmed up before continuing and I felt fine throughout the rest of my session. I'm happy that my strength is coming back overall so next time I may bang out some reps with 405 if I'm feeling it. Also, I am finally getting a sturdy powerlifting belt come Christmas so this should definitely help out my heavy squats and deads.
That's all for now. Tomorrow I'm banging out Back/Shoulders. Until next time: hit 'em up!
damn dude, 356 your 2nd session back for legs
405? I'm thinking 500 within a couple months time
only one hammie exercise? oh yea, your lower back was tight, sorry sweetie
nice job not neglecting those chicken calves of yours...I mean....
astonishing numbers your putting up after such a lay off, quite scary actually. If you stayed consistent for a year I dont even wanna know what kind of gains you could make
those are some good lookin squats...look forward to ya pumpin out 405 for reps!
