  1. I dont like front squatting much either. I like sissy squats preformed with dbs. When I do front squat tho, i take straps and wrap them around the bar, then hold the straps instead of the bar ( in the same position on the clavicle.) Its hard to explain, but its effective.

    Hey ded do you hold the DB's behind you when you sissy squat? I think I can kind of visualize what you are talking about with the straps on the front squat. Are the straps wrapped your wrists or are you just holding them?

  3. Shoulder day


    This afternoon was the first time I have worked shoulder pretty much solo in a lonnngggg time. I did some shrugs to, which I haven't done in forever either. I ate an egg burrito with cheese and onions, and some goat milk and keifer for breakfast. Then I had a small chicken breast and a little bit of quinoa pre workout. Then 30 minutes later I took all 5 Green Bulge and I waited a little longer than usual to lift. I would typically wait around 30 minutes to lift, but today I waited closer to 50 minutes and I was felt pumped a lot faster when I started lifting. Usually I would feel it sometime into my workout, but today I was feeling it as soon as I started lifting.

    Shoulder/Traps/Core:

    Standing Barbell Press - @ 125 x 10,10,8,6,5,5,4

    Side Laterals - @ 25 x 10,10,8,8 superset w/
    Behind the Back Shrugs - @ 185 x 10,8,8,8

    About 10 minutes of core work - mainly Ab wheels & planks

    DB Shoulder Press - @ 55 x 16 followed up w/
    Upright Rows - @ 90 x 12

    Comments:

    It felt weird doing only shoulder today, but I had fun. I was hoping to get 4 sets of 10 w/ 125 lbs on the barbell presses but I couldn't get it. The shrugs really got my traps burning, I held them at the top for a good count or two and by the last set they were on fire. The core stuff was tough and I got a good sweat going then. I decided to finish up with some db shoulder presses and upright rows to just make sure I was done. Doing 16 reps w/ 55 lb db's surprised me, I guess I had more left in the tank than I thought, then I got 12 reps on the upright row w/ 90 lbs.

    Post workout I had just plain milk, whey, and eggs. I ran out of chocolate milk yesterday. Then I ate a big plate of potatoes and a nice size angus steak. I might take tomorrow off, but I don't know yet. If I do lift it will be a back/biceps day!!

  4. Yeah, I hold one Db behind my back with the sissy squats, and I use the other arm for balance. I getting close to being able to try using two Dbs, but that is hard as hell. The straps are wrapped around the bar with the front squat, then i am holding the strap. Dont sweat the standing BB press, you get it next time for sure!

  5. good work J, you're doing great... technically you did shoulders and traps, when I do traps I'll 2 out of these DD shrugs, front and back BB.

    Thanks for the support DF!! I did feel the traps this morning, a little soreness..

    Today was bad day for me though Well it wasn't all bad. It started off normal, had some eggs, fruit, honey, and keifer for breakfast. Then a chicken breast and some rice a little later. Then 30 minutes later I got all 5 Green Bulge and hit the gym 30 minutes after that. Today was back/biceps day and I was pumped. I could feel the Green Bulge as I was warming up with some pull ups and moved onto some deads. I warmed up with 135, then 185, then 245, put then as I pulled my first rep I felt my middle left side back tighten up, just like what happened when I was squating last week. So then I tried to do some rack pulls from knee level and it didn't hurt. I did some sets at 275 for 10+ reps then at 305 for 8-10 reps. After that I went to do some weighted wide grip pull ups. Then I went on to reverse curls with an ez bar at 85 lbs. As I was going to do my first set my left side tightened up and I was kind of stuck. It felt like I was cramped up real bad. I called it a day and hobbled back to my house in pain. I took a hot shower and put a heat bad on it. Then I iced it later, and I'm about to heat it again. It still hurts, but I can deal with it.
    I think I will take a day or two off, then I'll test it very cautiously in the next few days. This SUCKS!!


  7. give your back a little rest, let it heal before you workout your back again!

  8. Agreed. Time is the cure for almost anything... except for death, because that mother f*cker waits for no man.

    for sure guys

  10. I'm still getting over a cold from last week and its a tough balance working out when you're sick on injured... if you get in the zone and start pushing hard for those pumps you'll make the situation worst, take a couple days off or more to recover, get well!

    Its frustrating missing the gym, but I've tried ignoring it and never clearing the cold for the 2-3 weeks. Sometimes it's better just to take 3 solid days off and completely recover. Hope to hear you're 110% soon!

  12. I hear you on that, been there done that before, last winter I had a little cold and cough that would not go away for weeks I finally decided to take a few days off and before i noticed it was gone, time off the gym is just as important

  13. Take it easy with the back J, i am prone to that same injury, its probably no big deal but give it a rest or it might be ya know.
  14. Extra recovery day...


    This morning I hit the gym with one of my friends that could get me into his gym. I wasn't planning on lifting and I didn't. I strethced out for awhile and did a few pull ups, then spotted him the rest of the time. We had fun, and he has made some tremendous gains since the last time we lifted. Hopefully I will be able to lift tomorrow. The pain is letting up for the most part, the only time that I can feel it is when I reach out to grab something that is out of arms length and have to bend my back. Other than that everything is fine, hope eveyone has a safe and fun fourth of July!!!!

    true, she looks a lot better in the movie than in the pics I just saw on google... but she still looks good in them though...

    here is a pic I saw from the movie

  20. Chest day


    Yesterday was an off/recovery day, I ate real good, had some steaks and fish at my buddies house , then the same thing later at my Dad's. Oh yeah and I had some really good avocados. This morning I had a leftover steak with some black beans and carrots. Before that I took a 30 minute walk this morning as soon as I woke up. Two hours after breakfast I had a small whey shake with a few scoops of peanut butter, then 15 minutes later all 5 Green Bulge, then 30 minutes later I started lifting.

    Chest/Triceps:

    DB Incline Press (45 degree angle/30 degree angle) - @ 65 10/8, 10/8, 8/5, 6/4

    Dips - +35 x 9, +50 x 5,5 + 55 x 2

    Close grip bench - @165 x 5,5,3,2

    Bench Press - @205 x 3,2,1

    Standing EZ extension - @ 80 x 8,6,5 superset w/
    Fly's - @40 x 8,8,8

    Comments:
    My chest is still burning after this one. I was siked I on almost all of my lifts today and I didn't feel any back pain today. The dips were a motha and so was the close grip bench. I was hoping to knock out a set of 5 at 205 on the bench too. I am so hungry now

    Post workout I had some milk, whey, and no eggs (all out). I got one more leftover steak, but I want to save it for tonight, so I'm going to go with some tuna or salmon with some rice. So far I leaning out nicely and I think my strength is going up on most exercises. I'm going to try to get a nap in after I eat too. Nothing much to do today...
