    The Return of the Z

    Hey ya fellas

    After a long time with out decent net I'm back.

    Today was a ****ed up day while I have net There ain't a decent gym nor decent equipment so while I do work out it's will anything I got available.



    • Barbell w/ weight totaling up to about 280 lbs. or 140 kg for my euro brothers

    that's about it that's all I got and some cinder blocks.

    Bench

    1 x 20 @ bar
    1 x 10 @ 135
    1 x 10 @ 185
    1 x 10 @ 225
    1 x 20 @ 225
    1 x 15 @ 225
    1 x 10 @ 240

    Light Barbell Curls

    4 x 15 @ 85

    that's about it other than the burn I feel wholly unfulfilled I need more weight.

    Bicep Day


    Double dumbbell curls

    1 x 10 @ 25 lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 35
    lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 45
    lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 50
    lbs.
    2 x 15 @ 45
    lbs.

    Gave a nice burn on the last two sets, basically a good warm up.

    Standing Curl Bar Curls

    5 x 12 @ 135 lbs.

    Kept it basic, paid attention to form and really had to struggle for set 5 felt real good but I was starting to get hungry.

    Straight Bar Curls

    2 x 10 @ 95 lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 105 lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 135 lbs.

    Wow that last set was tough, I personally dislike these because of the strange stress and pressure on my wrists but I like the alternative work on the biceps it offers.

    Concentrated Dumbbell Curls on the Preacher Station

    2 x 10 @ 50 lbs.
    2 x 10 @ 55 lbs.
    2 x 30 @ 35 lbs

    HOLY **** do these still burn, basically I learned this in high school weight lifting, you work one arm at a time over the preacher curl station and basically focus each curl on the bicep it's a awesome finisher and sure to kill off remain energy and leave behind a wicked pump.

    Bench Day Personally I enjoy starting a benchday with exhausted biceps, it helps keep alot of the strength focus to the triceps and biceps, where it belongs.

    Lying Dumbbell Press

    1 x 12 @ 50 lbs.
    1 x 12 @ 65 lbs.
    1 x 12 @ 85 lbs.
    1 x 12 @ 100 lbs.
    1 x 12 @ 125 lbs.

    Nice got a small pump.

    Bench Press

    1 x 6 @ 225
    lbs.
    1 x 6@ 255
    lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 275
    lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 315
    lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 365
    lbs.
    1 x 10 @ 405
    lbs.
    1 x 5 @ 465 <--- Intentional 5

    Felt great ever since I found this no AC boondocks Gym, just what the doctor ordered. But lost lot of strength since my last time in a real gym and hoping to pull it back up.

    Cable Crossovers,

    5 x 20 @ MAX

    Machines.. lol. thats all any power lifter can say.
    Great day

    Re: The Return of the Z

    Now for alot guys who read this who are unfamiliar with my lifts, im not a bodybuilder im a power lifter and strength trainer you'll notice I don't do unnecessary exercises like toning exercises.
    Quite frankly I don't care about those, I care about strength now an aspect I don't put on my logs as ab workouts, but it's just as important to have a strong core as much as it is to have a strong squat the core is what strengthens all the other lifts you need it for Squat, dead lift, bench presses in general.

    Alot of people who work and work and work to try to make new personal bests my question to you is, are you working on your abs?
