Another busy day for me... had to struggle to find time to lift, and I was planning on eating a ton today, but I couldn't find time to cook very much. But that just means tomorrow I will have a lot to eat.
Shoulders, Traps, & Core:
Standing BB Press - @ 125 x 10, 135 x 8, 145 x 6, 155 x 3,1
DB Shrugs - @ 75 x 12,12,12,11
Bent Laterals - @ 25 x 8,8,8
10 minutes of core work - mostly planks and hanging leg raises
Side Laterals - @ 25 (plates) x 10,10,9 superset w/
Clean and Press - @ 105 x 8,5,3
I was pumped after this workout, I looked more vacular than I can ever remember being during my workout too. The harderst thing was finishing with the clean and presses. That 105 lbs felt like 150 when I was done. I struggled to finish with a push press type lift. Needless to say my shoulders were beat...
Post workout I had some milk and whey. I got some more of my eggs fresh of the farm today, so I'll have eggs for like a week, maybe a little bit more. I had stuff to do this morning at 7 and I freakin forgot to set my alarm clock, so I got up at 6:30. Didn't have anytime to make anything, but I managed to grab a tub of peanut butter and a banana before I left the house. Tonight I had to go out to eat at a really good fajita spot. I had some charro beans, chicken, steak meat, and some guacamole. It was sooo good...
Tomorrow I will try to hit back and biceps...

Looking good bud. I havent done cleans in forever it seems. Pretty pleased with this supp so far?
07-09-2009 09:02 AM
Oh yeah, pretty impressed. I've lost around 5 lbs and my strength is going up on most lifts, that's all I can hope for.

Today was a back day, and I was nervous about deadlifting. I wasn't sure I would be able to pull anything, or not much weight. I figured I would just go as hard as I thought I could...
Back & Bicpes:
Deadlifts - @ 135 x 10, 185 x 10, 225 x 10, 255 x 5, 275 x 5,5,5
Weighted Chin Ups - BW+20 x 8,7,5,5
DB Rows - @ 75 x 5,5,5 superset w/
EZ bar curls - @ 100 x 4,4,4
Wide Grip Pull Ups - BW x 8,6,5,5 supset w/
Hammer Curls - @ 25 x 12,12,12,12 superset w/
DB Pull overs - @ 55 x 10,10,10,10
This session was a lot later in the day than I usually lift but it didn't seem to effect me. I was siked about being able to deadlift pain free, off course I didn't pull that heavy of weight, I was just being cautious but I still put in some work. My biceps were pumped during the whole workout and by lats were on fire when I was repping those pull overs. I hadn't done them in awhile and they felt good.
Post workout I had some milk, whey, and 2 eggs. Then I followed it up with a small steak and some black beans with a lot of greens. I got in a good amount of food today. Two steaks, 2 cans of tuna, one shake w/ peanut butter, about 12 eggs, and a turkey burger patty with various veggies throughout the day. I also had picked up some blackberries yesterday and they are really good. They might become regulars in my fridge! Tomorrow is an off day, I hope, but it might be too hard to resist...

Nice w\o J, glad to here about the pain free deads. You dropped five lbs that is awesome bro. I have been recomping but the last week or two, I been a big cheater. So crazy at my house with preggers wife and complete home remodel going on. I stalled out so far at 215 lbs.
07-10-2009 11:10 AM
Indeed, nice workout, J!
Also, congrats dedlifter! I was unaware that your wife is with child. That's awesome news, my friend!
Are you doing the remodeling yourself? And what exactly are you having done/doing?

Appreciate it fellas!!!
I know what you mean with the home remodeling, I've been helping my Dad do his house the last few weeks but it has been fun. I pulled his carpet up a few days ago and then we painted some walls and the ceiling some yesterday, but I got the day off today!
Today is a straight rest day, gonna eat like a champ!! I just had a pretty big steak with some fresh collard greens and I'm sure there is much more to come!!!

Yeah man she is due in three weeks!!!! A bouncing baby girl!!! I am adding 500 sq ft to my home, all master bedroom. I framed it with my father, and did all work so far except electrical and heating. Plus I am having the house painted, new landscaping, and three months ago I remodeled the kitchen and painted the whole interior, and remodeled my other daughters room. As of now, I have three new sets of furniture to assemble as well. My days never end, but its all good. My house was built in 1909 so its like "this old house" over here with all the projects going on.

Got a good start to the weekend today, but I had limited time to lift this morning but it still went down!! I had a nice breakfast with 4 scrambled egss, half of a steak, and an assortment of berries, with some raw honey. Then about 45 min later I took all 5 Green Bulge and went on my way.
Bench - @ 165 x 10,10,10,8,6,6,5,4
DB Extensions - @ 75 x 10,9,8,8
"Fly" Dips - BW x 8,6,5,5
I was on timed rest intervals today, only 30 seconds between every set. I was very winded after but I felt good. I failed hard on the 4th set of bench, and the bar got stuck on my chest, but I just let the plates slide off one side and it was good. That was the only time when I had to use a little bit more than 30 seconds to get back under the bar. The fly dips felt different, I had seen them on tmuscles "best of chest" article and I just felt like trying them out. I think I was just so fatigued and couldn't crank out any more reps though, but they are probably still harder than regular dips.
Post workout I had milk, whey, and two eggs. I had a bowl of chicken and rice with broccoli and carrots ready for me when I left. A little while later I had a nice size steak with an avacado, then I had a large turkey burger. Now I finally get to relax and watch the US in Gold Cup play Haiti. I might go somewhere to watch UFC100 tonight, but I doubt it...
07-12-2009 02:33 PM
Today was a leg day, it was the first time I did regular back squats since I strained my back. I didn't want to go to heavy, but I think I hit them hard. I ate some eggs, black beans, and berries for breakfast, then 45 minutes later I took the Green Bulge, then I waited 30 minutes to go lift.
Squats - @ 225 x 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5
Stiff Leg Deads - @ 135 x 10, 155 x 8,7,7
Standing DB Calf Raises - @ 50 x 20,20,20,20,20
I got my milk, whey, and eggs post workout. Then I ate some turkey with some peas and potatoes from the garden. Now I got some steaks and fish on the grill that I'm gonna get into in a few minutes! My legs are sore now, but I feel good, they were shaking before I finishes up on the last set of squats. I was only taking minimal breaks between sets, all but the last two were way under a minute.
Tomorrow I may go hit shoulder, or I might just take the day off. I think I got a few days left on Green Bulge, but I'm still loving it!!

I was too busy to update yesterday's workout, but it went well. I did shoulders/traps/core, and in the evening I played basketball for about 2 hours. I would say I ate around my maintence amount yesterday. This included 2 steaks, 1 can of chicken breast, 1 can of tuna, about 7-8 eggs, a lot of berries, a lot of broccoli, wheat germ, two protein shakes w/ peanut butter, and I think I am forgetting something... I have two days left off Green Bulge including today. Today is an off day, I have tons of work to do and do not even think I could squeeze in a session.
Standing BB Shoulder Press - @ 125 x 10, 135 x 10,10,8,5,3
Bent laterals - @ 25 x 10,10,9,8 superset w/
BB Shrugs - @ 205 x 8,8,6,5 superset w/
Leaning Side laterals - @ 20 x 8,8,8,6
Core Work for 10 min - planks, hanging leg/knee raises, DB side bends
Arnold Press - @ 50 x 10,7,3 superset w/
High Pulls - @120 x 7,5,4
I was impresses by this workout for sure! The 135 barbell press felt light as could be for the first few sets, I would have thought it would be much more difficult. The shrugs were hard and the leaning side laterals were tough too. I went almost to failue for the arnold press and high pulls, well I went until my shoulders were burning so bad that I just had to drop the weight.
Post workout I got my usual whey,milk, and eggs. Then after I got a large bowl of peas and potatoes and chicken (thats what I forgot to add). I am very impressed by the strenght gains so far from the Green Bulge, the weight just is feeling lighter than it should you know? I only have today and tomorrow left and tomorrow will be a back/biceps workout. After this I will take updated pics and post a final review! Oh and I weighed in this morning at 207, I think that is up a pound from the last weigh in, which is suprsising since last night I played ball for 2 hours. Also last night I was dunking extremely easy, I put a few in vertically, one handed though. I was sad that I didn't get a chance to throw one down during a game
07-16-2009 05:19 AM
lookin good J, you have some serious meals in there bro!!
07-16-2009 10:11 PM
Yep yep, got to keep the food intake up with all of this running around that I have been doing, and it continued today... but I did get to sit in the movies for like 3 hours watching Harry Potter. I just think Emma Watson is hot...
My last day off Green Bulge!!! I finished it up with a back/biceps day. I got to lift after breakfast which was 5 scrambled eggs, black beans, and a sliced tomatoe. Then an hour later I took my last 5 Green Bulge, waited for 30 minutes and went out the door.
Back & Biceps:
Snatch Grip Deadlifts - @ 285 x 5, 295 x 3, 305 x 3, 335 x 1,1,1
Wide Grip Pull Ups - BW + 35 x 3,3,3,3,3,3,2
Incline Hammer Curls - @ 35 x 5,5,5,5
Bent Rows - @ 135 x 10, 155 x 7, 175 x 3
DB Rows - @ 65 x 8,7,3 superset w/
Alt DB Curls - @ 35 x 8,8,6
Today I was keeping my rest between sets as short as possible, and I was beat after it. The hardest thing was pulling those 335 snatch deadlifts, I just kept good form, bit my lip, and pulled. On the last superset I didn't even take a break from the second set. Once I was down I just sat on a bench for a few minutes breathing hard.
Post workout I only had milk and whey, then I ate a steak, broccoli, and peas. Throughout the rest of the day I ate two cans of tuna with carrots, a turkey patty with a tomatoe, a few scoops of natty p butter, and now I think I'm going for a caesin shake. I'll post a final review tomorrow along with some pics!!
