    BB squat followed by front squats seems like fun :p

    Your weights will come up in no time if you keep hitting it hard.

    hey line props to doing a session hungover and that. double props for opting away from im not doing jack shit.

    the squat weight your using tho, when i know youve done somewhere near 500lbs before. Its really weak sauce, its the only major lift im smoking you on. consider this a challenge. (throw your front squats was my major lift last cycle excuse in here, whatevs.) Im winning. lolol xxx now i have more incentive to 10 rep 140kg on thursday.

    Prince V - Thanks, though I actually thought it was a pretty lame workout. I mean, I've done 205 pounds for 10 reps on front squats recently, so I wasn't pleased that I only managed 3 sets of 10 reps with 185. Honestly though, I was drained. Blame the whiskey, I say.

    Lance - I'm confident that my weights will come up, sure, but I'm also impatient as hell so these preliminary months are mentally torturous! I appreciate the kind words though.

    Pickle - I know, I know. The sad thing is that I can't even blame booze for the performance, at least not entirely. That said, it is nice being able to merely unrack the weight and lift now instead of having to clean the bar up to my shoulders. In time, I'll blow past you and your lanky legs again. No worries.

    Pickle - Beer has kept me strong for years!

    Tim - Thanks, Tim. I'm short on cash this week (damn smartphones) so I decided to stock up my mini-fridge to avoid spending too much money out at the bar. Plus, a few days away from the club should save me a few lifetimes worth of secondhand smoke, so that's a plus too.

    Prince V - I appreciate it. Honestly, I didn't think I'd get 7 reps; I had been hoping for at least 6 though.

    Freako - That sure means a lot coming from an old-timer like yourself.

    Natzo - Ha, viking strength, eh? I like it.


    I wanted to earn my day off tomorrow. I feel I did that.

    Date: 6.23.10

    Time: 8:05 pm

    Duration: 55 min


    BB Deadlift
    (Following two "feel" sets)
    Set #1 - 285 pounds x 3 reps
    Set #2 - 300 pounds x 3 reps
    Set #3 - 315 pounds x 10 reps


    (So then I wanted to see what it felt like to pull 400 again, you know, for fun)

    Set #1 - 365 pounds x 1 reps
    Set #2 - 405 pounds x 1 reps
    (First time in 3.5 years)

    DB Kroc Rows
    Set #1 - 50 pounds x 35 reps
    Set #2 - 50 pounds x 35 reps

    DB Rows
    Set #1 - 100 pounds x 8 reps
    Set #2 - 100 pounds x 8 reps

    Lying Leg Curl Superset with DB Shrugs
    Set #1 - 45 pounds x 12 reps AND 90 pounds x 12 reps
    Set #2 - 45 pounds x 12 reps AND 90 pounds x 12 reps
    Set #3 - 45 pounds x 12 reps AND 90 pounds x 12 reps


    DB Preacher Curls
    Set #1 - 25 pounds x 12 reps
    Set #2 - 25 pounds x 12 reps
    Set #3 - 25 pounds x 10 reps


    So that felt good. I've also worked in cardio sessions the past two mornings and will do so again tomorrow...mostly because our lawn needs to be cut. I don't really have much else to say, as things felt pretty great today and I can only hope my benching day on Friday goes just as well. To be honest, pulling over 400 pounds wasn't really the plan going into today's session, but seeing how I haven't done it for 3.5 years (to the day!) I figured I owed it to myself to move some real weight. That's all for now. Until next time.

    Freako - Thanks, buddy. 500 is right around the corner!

    Storm - Heh, that never really crossed my mind to be honest. It was one of those rare workouts that I kept postponing but, when I got there, felt "right," if you will. I just settled into the session very comfortably.

    Prince V - As always, I appreciate the kind words. Hopefully, I'll be doing Kroc Rows with the 100's sometime soon, as that's the heaviest dumbbells our gym currently has and, well, I like maxing out the gym I'm at.


    Update: Taking 'er easy today. Another cardio session followed by a watching a movie or two and getting a review written. I can't wait for tomorrows bench session though. Until next time.

    Prince V - I had a great day off. Had a nice cardio session and, other than that, just took it easy. Felt full of energy going into today's workout.

    Natzo - Ha, you made sense so no worries there. Thanks for the kind words though. Deadlift was always a strong movement for me, even before I began training consistently. If only my squat would jump back up like that!


    Update: I was originally going to go into the gym around 4 today but got impatient and felt nourished enough to head there at 1:30. I made a few positioning adjustments on my bench, which seemed to pay dividends -- I now feel more stable and am moving the bar along a more efficient, repeatable plane. Also, I've began incorporating some antagonist stretching and band face pulls between my pressing sets. Anyway, here goes...


    Date: 6.25.10

    Time: 1:30 pm

    Duration: 55 min


    BB Bench
    (Following two "feel" sets)
    Set #1 - 225 pounds x 3 reps
    Set #2 - 240 pounds x 3 reps
    Set #3 - 250 pounds x 9 reps


    DB Press Superset with Rope Face Pulls
    Set #1 - 90 pounds x 8 reps AND 70 pounds x 25 reps
    Set #2 - 90 pounds x 8 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #3 - 90 pounds x 9 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #4 - 90 pounds x 8 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #5 - 90 pounds x 8 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps


    Parallel Bar Dips
    Set #1 - BW x 20 reps
    Set #2 - BW x 15 reps
    Set #2 - BW x 15 reps
    Set #2 - BW x 15 reps
    Set #2 - BW + 45 pounds x 10 reps


    (First time doing weighted dips in a while. Felt good. Expect More in the future.)

    Band Push Ups
    Set #1 - 16 reps
    Set #2 - 12 reps
    Set #3 - 14 reps

    (First time doing these ever.)


    And that is that. No complaints with today's session: My muscles and joints felt good and all my movements were pretty smooth and controlled. I can't say I'm looking forward to tomorrow's squat session, but I'll be damned if I don't give it my all anyway. Until next time.
