    Slept too late on Sunday to get any sprints or sleds in.

    But today! got my workout on.

    6MAY13 ME Upper

    Pre: 3 Drive, 7 N.O. Uptake, 2 Uncut, 3g Mono
    Intra: 1/2 gallon of BCAA + Gatorade

    Warm-up: External Rotations, Over and Backs, Ext. Rot., Shoulder Dislocates, Lacrosse ball across pec minor and scapula adductors.

    Bench: Work to 2RM (normally wouldn't do the same exercise 2 weeks in a row, but the workout partner didn't go last week so I just changed the rep range and hit it again)
    45x5, 95x5, 135x2, 175x2, 205x2, 215x2, 225x1 (PR)

    Dips: BWx18, +45x13

    a1. T-Bar Rows: 25x12, 45x12, 70x12, 85x8, 115x6 (had to feel these out because I haven't done them in years lol)
    a2. Face Pulls: 100x12, 120x10, 120x9x2, 140x9

    b1. BB Shrugs: 185x13, 205x10, 205x14 (alt. grip, 7 each. Grip was smoked and I couldn't hold it for the last set)
    b2. Rope Pushdown: 100x15, 120x13, 140x8

    Notes: The pump on the first superset was intense! Might have hit a PR on the face pulls (rep PR), but I would have to check my log to be sure. Also, might have hit a rep PR on the Dips as well (but again, I would have to check). My Tri's were feeling awful (read: awesome) during the last set of the pushdowns. Wasn't able to get the rope today for face pulls so I used this awkward 'V' shaped bar and it actually worked out really well. Feeling like a boss right now, bout to shower and then eat some teriyaki chicken and rice and stuff. Got RE Lower tomorrow (last week RE, before starting the pendulum wave for DE), probably going to be conventional deads or rack pulls....

    Had a solid PR for the bench today. I have never quite been able to push through the 225# barrier; until today. The lift was a bit of a grind, but it was clean! The tri's are definitely my sticking point right now, so this is the perfect opportunity to completely hammer them. Forced adaptation and ****. Went for the second rep and it wasn't trying to go anywhere, my spotter made it hard to push through, but I definitely only got 1 on my own (he didn't touch that friggin bar lol).
    Solid PR's today! Quite the appnut pwo ritual you have there! lol very similar to mine.


  2. Nice work Jim. Solid session and nice benching.

  3. Got to the gym late today, but still got it done!

    Hit the RE lower today, and it was AWFUL! Had to really push it to get done at a decent hour because of how stupid work was today.

    RE Lower

    Pre: 3 Drive, 2 Uncut, 3g Mono
    Intra: Gallon jug of BCAA+ and Gatorade

    Warm-up: Shortened because of time. Squat to stands, foam rolling, hip mobility drills

    Deadlift: 45x7, 132x7(WU), 176x15, 198x15, 242x11 (shortened the reps because it was a full DL and not a squat variation)

    Front Foot Elevated Split Squat: 1'x45#x8 (WU), 4"x88#x8, 4"x116x8x2 (per leg)

    Good Mornings: 154x6, 176x6, 198x6, 242x6

    Uneven Farmers Carries: 88#/70#x30ydsx3 (per arm)

    http://youtu.be/8PHaocKSQq8


    Notes: Energy was solid throughout the session. Rest intervals were short, intensity was high. Felt good for maybe an hour after the session, and then it all hit me at once (while I was ordering chinese). Now I'm so tired, I'm so worn out from that. Bout to pass out lol.

    It seems like you are liking the Uncut. Nice.

  5. Sitting at 167.6 before breakfast.

    Great training day today! Haha Uncut tends to stick around at times.

  7. Yeah, the fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks though lol!

    Went in today and got some RE upper work in. Didn't realize that I was sore until the blood started rushing into my chest lol.


    9May13 RE Upper

    Pre: 3 Drive, 7 Uptake, 2 Uncut
    Intra: Gallon mix of Gatorade and MBCAA+

    Warmup: Band Ext. Rot., Over and backs, Dislocates, Ext. Rot., BB Bench with Bar


    DB Bench: 70x12, 70x10, 70x9, 70x7 (lol they kept getting heavier and heavier!)

    a1. Hammer Grip Behind Neck Pulldown: 80x12, 100x8, 90x8, 90x10
    a2. Seated Cable Rear Delt Row: 80x9x2, 80x8, 80x9 (The pump with this superset was literally painful. I had to stretch my bi's in between sets)

    French Press: 60x8, 70x5, 70x4

    Bradford Presses: 95x8, 105x2--95x4, 95x4--95x1

    For those that haven't done Bradford Presses, I encourage you to try them. It will make you feel like a little girl if you use the right intensity.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSXNin4nCbc



    Notes: Pump was awesome, in a terrible way. It was literally painful, like physical and mental agony (mostly physical lol). Got some good work in today, total workout time was approximately 60 minutes.

    Also, for those who haven't seen elsewhere, my car caught fire today. So I may have to change my name to "JimChevy" because the Buick is now totaled. The entire engine was engulfed in flames, so yeah... Buying a new vehicle tomorrow from a buddy. It's and '89 Chevy Silverado with a rebuilt engine, trans, and rear axle with about 45,000 on them. So yeah, my day was friggin' awesome.

  8. Dang sorry about the car troubles man! Solid workout session though...those bradford's are tough.

    yeah, they are awful (in an awesome way)


    A far as the car goes, I guess that's what happens when GMs hit a certain age; they just self destruct. That way you have to buy a new one lol.

  15. You drink a gallon of Gatorade during your workout?

    I bring a gallon mix, generally get through half and reuse what's left three next day.

  17. What's the weekend look like for you bro?

    Hit ME lower yesterday, well update that when I get to the CPU. Normally, I would've done conditioning today. But I went to meet a friend at the beach, turns out they were all leaving when I showed up.

    Tried calling him earlier today but his phone was dead and because he didn't have a call from me he assumed I wasn't coming and didn't tell me.

    So 5 hours of driving and 70 dollars wasted.

  19. Friday's ME Lower work:

    Pre: 4 IGF2, 2 Uncut, 3 Drive
    Intra: Gatorade + MBCAA+ mix

    Warmup: Squat to stands, shoulder mobility work with band, BR hip flexor stretch

    Front Squat: 95x3, 135x3, 185x3, 225x3, 275x1 (225 felt easy, thought I could do this for 3. It was slow moving so I called it at 1)

    Weighted Lunges: 135x5 (per leg), 155x5, 165x5

    Stiff Legged Rack Pulls: 185x20, 275x11

    Notes: Was supposed to do some specific core work, but it was an early morning session (for me anyway) and me and the training partner were both pretty depleted after this. Didn't get anything done today (besides seeing Iron Man 3 ) so I will be doing mobility/conditioning work tomorrow. The plan is to implement some rowing (to offset my pressing in a 2:1 ratio), sled pulling/pushing, core, and posterior chain work. Nothing ridiculous, but enough to get the blood flowing and breathing heavy.

    Also, it may be worth mentioning that 275x1 is probably a PR for the Front Squat (I can't say for certain, it has been a while since I've maxed out on Front Squat).

  20. Solid front squat. I did some mobility and rowing yesterday so it is nice to see someone who follows a similar path as myself.

  21. Good front squat man. Do you lay the bar across your Delts and cross armed? Or a clean grip?

    Thanks, it's definitely a good vehicle. Been well maintained too.

    Traded my T-Bird plus cash for it.

    KB Rows: 44#x10x3

    Upright Sled Pulls: 90#(+sled)x60yds

    Notes: Good training session. Felt good afterwards, but shortly after felt like my blood sugar was low. Found some licorice strips at walmart and opened them up and ate some. Felt fine after having a couple (or 20). Hit up the barber for a haircut afterwards and then ate some chipotle.

  30. Solid workouts! I'm usually at the gym on the weekends as well. My schedule has been off lately so the workouts change depending what's going on. I started doing CG DB presses, but use two instead.
