  2. Sat 10/4, Back and Bi's

    focusing on trying to get some width to my back.
    thickness seems to come a bit easier than width for me.
    did a few quick giant sets of bi's as the gym was closing.

    Animal Pump
    IA + Storm
    Torrent

    back:
    weight-assisted pull-ups and chins
    pulldowns, several sets, several grips
    bent over bb rows (light)
    HS low row
    HS pulldown
    low cable row w/ wide grip attachment

    bi's, giant set, about 3 times:
    bb curl
    preacher curl machine
    db curl
    cable curl (to failure)

    back was pumped and bi's were hurting!
    i was literally the last one out of the gym...
    the girl who was working the front desk didn't seem too happy with working right up to closing time,,,
    oh well, i had to get my workout in!

  4. That girl needed to work her full shift anyway

  5. haha, good point!
    she was getting paid until close, so i guess i was just getting my membership dues worth!

  6. i figured i owed a little bit of an update...
    i don't have a set lifting schedule, but just making sure that i hit the big muscle groups each week... legs, back, chest.
    i haven't been working arms directly very often because i'm trying to bring up my legs (quads),
    back (width), and also get my chest and shoulder back to where they were pre-surgery.

    i have started throwing in some direct shoulder work now that i can do it again.
    also, i will throw some bi's in there (usually after back) because mine are small compared to my tri's (and calves)

    i hope that made some sense?

    Tues 10/7, Cardio + shoulders
    felt like crap an decided to do an hour of cardio.
    did 1/2 hr on the elip, then 1/2 hr on the tread while i watched the beginning of the pres debate.
    thought i'd throw in a quick shoulder workout.
    rot cuff warmup
    giant set x3: lat raises, rear raises, front raises
    lateral raise machine
    db shoulder press
    cable work, worked through front, mid, rear delts to burn out and pump.

  7. Thurs 10/9, Back
    did pretty much every pull or row you can thing off, haha
    assisted pullup and chins (warmup)
    lat pulldowns, several grips
    ss w/ cybex pulldown freeweight pulldown machine
    bb bent over rows
    HS pulldowns
    t-bar rows ss w/ low rows
    cybex row machine, lightweight to burn and pump (high reps)

    Animal Pump
    IA + EAA Nitro!!! awesome!!!
    Torrent, CBB of course

  8. Sat 10/11, Chest

    waited to do chest until today so that i was sure that my shoulders were recovered (from 10/7 workout)...

    shoulder warm-up
    inc db presses
    inc db flies ss w/ decline bb press
    HS chest press ss w/ pec deck
    fly machine ss w/ cable x-overs + unders (good burn, stretch, & pump)

    Animal Pump
    IA + EAA Nitro FTW
    Torrent

    i've been having a problem getting a good pump in the right side of my chest (side where i had shoulder surgery)...
    i really focused on contracting my pecs on every rep
    had a good pump in my chest, esp my upper and outer chest.
    next chest workout i'm going to see if my shoulder is ready for Gironda dips.

  9. It's great to see you back at it with this intensity Joe. BTW, the Equine liniment gets my endorsement as well now. You may want to try some on that shoulder.

    IA+EAA Nitro is the drink of warriors! :squat:

    i don't really keep track of it all that much...
    i really go by what i'm feeling that day...
    sometimes it's heavier, sometime it's lighter.

    i need to post up my shoulder session from monday,
    i'll try to remember what weights i used and put them in there for reference.

    i will say that my weights are nowhere near what i was using before my surgery.
    i've cut the weight back and have been really focusing on form (which is first and foremost to me)
    and mind-muscle connection.

  12. Training smarter instead of just harder. Good on ya bro...

  16. Good stuff Joe. I know your shoulder still likes to nag your numbers but if it makes you feel any better at all your still pressing way more than I can!

    Warrior juice FTW! :bruce2:

  17. Enjoy the SUTAS and hella good leg session. Nice to know I wasn't the only one partaking in punishing the legs today.

  18. Sat 10/18, Chest

    went to LA Fitness with my roommate and another buddy on a free pass.
    ok, guys can talk all the sh*t they want about this place not being "hardcore" and all that...
    but, damn do they have some nice equipment.

    i have to admit, it was nice having all of that top-notch stuff at my disposal.
    not only are the db's and benches, etc really nice
    (all weights are the same brand, all rubber-coated with built-in handles, etc),
    but they have like 4-6 types of machine for every bodypart...
    for chest, they had traditional HS machines in flt, inc, and decline, as well as the fancier weight stack HS, and several other types.

    oh, and the scenery wasn't bad either

    anyway, on to the workout...
    rot cuff warm-up: about 15 mins... 5lb db's, 10lb db's
    inc db press: 50lbs x 20 x 20, 70lbs x 15, 80lbs x 10, 90lbs x 11
    (only expected 8 or so, but had a good a spotter and had a few extra reps in me...
    i should've probably bumped up to 100's for a set, but thought i'd go easy on the shoulder)
    dec HS press: 2 pies per side x 12 for 4 sets
    (really concentrated on pec contraction)
    pec fly machine ss w/ pec deck: 4 sets or 12 each
    "body something" chest machine (one of those multi-exercise-pulley-type machines... really cool):
    giant set: inc press, dec press, fly, 12 reps each, 3 g sets
    cable x-over: 3 sets x 20 reps (really stretched and pumped here

    Animal Pump
    IA + EAA Nitro
    Torrent

    no doubt. i go to a mom & pop gym (we had an ABC there in July) and i like it a lot.
    but damn, all of the brand new equipment was s-weet.

    there were definitely several of the "corp gym types" roaming around though.
    also several gym cougars roaming too haha.

    i was a little machine crazy , but every time i finished up a set i saw another cool machine to try.
    i have til this sat to go back on a 7-day free pass...
    i'd really like to hit a back day (all kinds of cool row machines) and a leg day there too.

    Well to make matters worse, I meant to say "aren't bad" not "are bad" in my previous post bro. Sorry about that. Doh!

  23. Joe destroying all the machines in sight... I like it. The machines are a really good change of pace for me.
