    Update: My life has consisted of a fairly odd sequences of events the past two days. Well, only one event, really, but it is rather crippling. My car died on my way home from softball, so I'm without transportation for awhile now. Still, I was able to borrow a vehicle and get to the gym for a bit, but I only had enough time to do my deads and get out of there before my ride for, you guessed it, softball arrived. That said, it was still a productive enough session and, because I'm not taking a day off between my dead and bench day this week, I don't really mind the "I'm not doing jack shit" approach to assistance work...at least for today.


    Date: 7.1.10

    Time: 4:20 pm

    Duration: 25 min

    5/3/1 Status: Cycle 3, Week 3


    BB Deadlift
    (Following two "feel" sets)
    Set #1 - 265 pounds x 5 reps
    Set #2 - 300 pounds x 3 reps
    Set #3 - 335 pounds x 12 reps



    And I was outta there. Surprisingly, I felt pretty good following the workout and, despite being hit in the head with a ball tonight whilst sliding into third base (for those wondering, yes, I was safe), I feel pretty good now. In fact, the whole car thing hurts a lot more, as I don't have money saved and now need to put my entire cash flow towards buying a new one. No more nights out. No more toking and watching movies. Oh well, at least my abs will probably come in faster. Until next time.

    Nice deads Line. Your triceps stuck out when you were doing presses, looks like you got a good set of arms.

    I like what I see in this thread


    She really looks like someone set her face on fire and put it out with a bike chain.

    So you're on the way of doing PDLs --Pickle DeadLifts, just like Kroc rows but deadlifting-- 12 reps with that weight is great mr. Lineski.

    Pickle - Ha, I appreciate it. I oftentimes get injured playing sports and, usually, I care less about the injury than I do about the outcome of the play. I really don't like to lose anything.

    lifterdead - Thanks, man. Arms have always been my strong suit, though I thought I looked a little puffy in the video -- personally, I blame the poor gym lighting. :p Eventually I'll take and post some proper pics.

    Skeptic - I like to see that you like what you're seeing in this thread.

    Storm - Pickle is a madman. If it were up to me, I wouldn't really be going above 5 reps on deadlifts, but that masochist Wender dictates otherwise. I can't wait until my total gets back around the 500 mark, if only so I don't have to do so many damn reps.

    Freako - Yeah, it's nice. I mean, I like focusing all my efforts on just one lift without having to worry about following it up with anything else. But still, the wannabe bodybuilder in me feels like I should be doing more.

    Natzo - Yes, softball is for girls...and retired hardball players who can no longer play competitively and like drinking a lot of beer. :linedrunk:


    Update: Heavy benching later.

    Those presses were solid mate!

    I like pickle bring the bar down lower but i dont think it really matters.

    Also big deadlifts too. Looking forward to that pressing sesh.

    Lance - Yeah, but because my sticking point appears to be near the top of the movement, I'm going to try bringing the bar a bit lower during my deload week just to see how it feels.


    Update: Another fairly quick session. Strength felt alright, but it wasn't good enough to raise my projected max for bench, though that's probably because I haven't had 265 pounds on the bar in quite some time. Again, the length of my workout was dictated by outside circumstances (like not having my own car) but I tried to make the most of it. Also dictating was the lump on the back of my head, which prevented me from doing further pressing, as it was quite uncomfortable.


    Date: 7.2.10

    Time: 4:05 pm

    Duration: 40 min


    BB Bench
    (Following two "feel" sets)
    Set #1 - 215 pounds x 5 reps
    Set #2 - 245 pounds x 3 reps
    Set #3 - 265 pounds x 6 reps


    Parallel Bar Dips Superset with DB Rows
    Set #1 - BW + 90 pounds x 10 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #2 - BW + 90 pounds x 10 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #3 - BW + 90 pounds x 10 reps AND 100 pounds x 15 reps


    Rope Push Downs Superset with Rope Face Pulls
    Set #1 - 90 pounds x 15 reps AND 90 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #2 - 90 pounds x 10 reps AND 90 pounds x 15 reps
    Set #3 - 90 pounds x 12 reps AND 90 pounds x 15 reps



    And then it was time to get out of there and indulge in some food. I restrained myself by not going to the bar last night in order to save money and spent the majority of my time playing old NES games. Good times. Today I'm taking off, for my entire body is sore. Tomorrow will be squat day and then I think I'll roll that right into my deload week so I can get back on a M, T, R, F schedule. Until next time.

    Strong pressing mate, give yourself a few workouts of benching 265 and i'm sure you'll get your feel back and thus feel more comfortable at that weight.

    Poo. One of the few exercises I could come close to you on and you're smashing me We finally got a few barbell benches about two weeks ago so my strength is coming back slowly...but I can't even push one at 265 again yet. Nice work

    I lift with another lieutenant here sometimes, and when he says 'fuck' with the emphasis on the 'f-aaah-ck' like you do I flashback to The White Building. Good times, good times. Only problem is he never tells me to contract.
