    When I train, I go as hard as I can, without being stupid and getting sloppy or cheating every which way. I'm pushing it, but afterwards, it seems like I didn't really push it that far. I'm a bit soar in the traps this morning, also seeing as I did shrugs on Thursday.

    Nothing major to report. Everything is going well.
    weight gain!?!? You've been on for 5 or 6 days haven't you?


  2. Weight's gone up, but I think most of it is water. This morning, the scale read 203. When I started, I was around 196. I look a tad pudgier in the belly range. I ate like crazy this weekend, so that might be part of it, especially last night. Yesterday, hunger started increasing--a great sign!

    @ricroc --> Basically, we're tryin to say stop slackin on the log, bud! Need enough details to see trends in the product over time.

    Where's my nudes...

  11. I used to be in the habit of posting up the routine, but that got boring. I took my noodz last night, just didn't post them up. I'll have time this evening. Monday was quite the busy one after work, but I got in my squats and everything was right with the world.

    I was a bit hesitant to put up some numbers because I know they'll be lower than what I was working with earlier in the year. Before, I'd workout with my Soloflex, but using weights, as the arm bar for the Soloflex has adapters to use standard weight plates. When I started with the Ultra-Sten, I switched up to using a traditional bar and some squat stands. (I would have liked to have gone the way of a power rack, but space is an issued.) As such, these stands are proving their worth. Takes a bit to get used to everything, but they're great.

    With the Soloflex, it was more like 2.5D, instead of 3D, since the bar wouldn't move back or forth. Now that I'm going the truer weightlifting route, the weights might not be as high, but, I'm not as weak as I'd thought.

    In fact, now that I'm writing this out, it makes sense to include the routine.

    Damn, you all are some smooth talkers.

    that's what I'm talking about, I've been lifting like a little girl for the last 3 months rehabing my shoulder and still seeing gains. It's not about the weight as much as TUT..

  16. Day 11 of 30


    Well, last night was chest. Good night. Routine went well. The weight felt light, mostly the first two working sets. I hadn't lifted that much on my own in quite some time and it went up nice and smooth.

    Things are going along just fine. Only some mild acne to complain about, but I am prone to acne, so this would happen under usually circumstances. Adding more to my diet. Need to go shopping again.

    Tuesday - Bench Press (200)
    Set #1 - 70%: 3x140
    Set #2 - 80%: 3x160
    Set #3 - 90%: 6x180

    Final set went well, I could have done more but it would have been a sloppy rep. I didn't get as much of a pump as I would have liked, so perhaps my mechanics were off. I'll have to revisit that this weekend.

    I finished up with some incline press, 5x10 and some one-arm dumbbell rows, 3x10.
