    You know it's stupid hot when you're sitting in an air conditioned room and the back of your knees are sweaty. Or is that just me? It's 3* shy of 100* so pretty darn hot.

    Wow. 130*? You win Arizona. I need to move to a place where it's 75* year round. With gyms in every neighborhood instead of McD's on every corner. Who's with me?

    I imagine that's the type of weather Mr. Paratroop runs in. Rocky theme playing in the background. Looking all bad ass.

    Hey, it was a cool story about me appreciating how fabulously freaky you are. A girl can dream. My earache needs to go away. Like yesterday already!

    FRI LOG

    BB Complexes 4x8:

    Conventional DL
    Barbell row
    Hang Clean into front squat
    BB Push press

    Finisher:
    Front squats
    2x10

    Change of pace today guys. Decided to do some BB complexes. Haven't done those in a while Took 1 scoop of BCAA+SAA and mixed it with 15 oz of water. Playing around with the amount of water. I think the taste may be growing on me. I still don't sip it, just chug it down anyway. Got a really crazy sweat going and had a good amount of endurance to finish 4 sets. I wanted to shoot for 5 but the only thing stopping me were my hammies and hips. Felt like they were tight from the get go, even after stretching. I could definitely feel them on deadlifts and front squats so I did what I could and didn't want to push it further. I'm also averaging about 2 pills of ALC+CLA per day because I find that I'm eating 2 bigger meals. One in the A.M and another in the P.M. Everything between is like a snack.

    I would actually dose two alc cla with each big meal if you are only having two larger meals a day.

    Back from tennis today. Beautiful out. At times the wind picked up a bit. If I keep this up I'm gonna be African by next week. Before I left I mixed 1 scoop BCAA + SAA with 20 oz of water. Keeps me hydrated during my game. Also dosed 2 ALC+CLA with my breakfast this morning.

    I'm thinking of hitting Triceps tonight and... I don't know what else. Legs and back are out of the question. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to drop them here!

    True. Not many places around here with good sushi. Bet it's way better on the West Coast.

    I was going to wait until tomorrow, my rest day, to carb up. But you do make a good point.

    SAT LOG (yesterday)

    BW Bench Dips
    12,10,12

    DB Tricep Extensions
    3x12x12x12

    DB Skull Crushers
    3x10x10x10

    RB Tricep Pushdowns
    3x15x15x15

    DB Concentration Curls
    2x10x10

    BB Curls
    2x10x10


    Did a round cardio, finished the day with arms, and then had some sushi. Didn't go crazy though. When I used to do dips regularly, I could do feet elevated bench dips no problem, so I am slowly working my way back up. Once I can get to 15 per set I'll be trying that again. Also increased weights on db tricep extensions. Added weight to each set. Overall, I feel my triceps are getting stronger with each and every workout. Win.

    Great workout! Those bench dips are no joke. A little thing i like to dobwoth bench dips is once i push up i rock back slowly, slightly putting more weight onto my tris and this causes them to contract harder. Wheewww does it cause a huge pump!

    I bet the sushi was good! Overall sounds like a very productive day.

    Thanks GT! It was productive indeed. Had to be in order to eat the way I did, lol, otherwise I would have been too guilt ridden the whole day.

    Interesting. So you rock back, and then lower yourself down?

    I know the guilt feeling lol.

    Yup rock back and then once you feel them contract move a bit forward ( or your backside may hit the bench) and lower yourseld down and then do it again.

    I used to beat myself up over it, like did I work out hard enough that day to be eating what I'm eating. I'm better with it nowadays. "I can't have this" has slowly turned into "I choose not to". It's a better mindset to have.

    Thanks for the detailed tips! I would have done it wrong. I'm more visual when it comes to these type of things.

    Hey kixie, when doing bench dips use the end of the bench so your palms are facing each other. Palms facing back places the shoulder joints in an unnatural position and will cause probs after a while. I agree with the rocking back part to get good contraction. Jst my 2cents.

    Hey kixie, when doing bench dips use the end of the bench so your palms are facing each other. Palms facing back places the shoulder joints in an unnatural position and will cause probs after a while. I agree with the rocking back part to get good contraction. Jst my 2cents.
    Good looking out. Thank you, C.

    Woke up and mixed 1 scoop BCAA+SAA with 15 oz of water before A.M. cardio. I feel like I'm getting more conditioned because this particular jump rope workout gets a little easier to do each time, whether it be performing more reps or jump roping faster than the last time. Also took 2 ALC+CLA with brekkie and lunch. Today I'll take 2 more with dinner.

    Such a long P.M workout today...Rest periods were also longer than usual in order to keep up with the pace. I prefer to keep cardio separate on Squat days because it has a tendency to effect my PM workouts, which I don't like, but I'm trying to up the intensity a bit today after my carb up this weekend. Added +5lbs from last week for 10x10.

    Warm ups were just meh. Felt like I was coming out of the hole too slow, but fixed that by the 2nd working set and got into a nice tempo. Knees were feeling beat around the 7th set as well, giving me the middle finger, but I was determined to get all 10 sets in. The last set was def the hardest since energy was waning at that point. I hit 8 reps and had to rack the barbell. Took a few breaths to compose myself, unracked the weight and finished the 2 reps.

    Thanks for the tips GT and Wicked! I pushed my palms more inward and contracted my tri's like you suggested and def felt it more. Needless to say, I am tired now.
