    Thanks guys, I'm still gonna try to do something while I'm up there (I can't stand not training) but we'll see how it goes.



    Also, an update from last night's sleep:


    I took 3/4 scoop at ~1200 to go to sleep (had to be up at 630 this morning), and laid there in bed, wide awake for 3 hours. Finally passed out at around 3 and woke up at 630. Not feeling too awfully tired (surprisingly) but I can definitely tell that I didn't sleep much.

    sleep is like a game of hide and seek....sometimes i find it, sometimes i don't!!!

    hope your uncle is doing better....i am sure your visit will mean alot to him!!!!

    family 1st, it might sound corny but it is the meaning of life!!!!
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  5. And I'm back....


    Had a good time while I was up there, I hadn't seen him since before I shipped off to BCT, so it was nice to see him again. Planning to go up there later this year and hopefully stay a little longer.


    Got in yesterday morning, had my bowling league start last night and then got in the gym this afternoon.

    DE Upper: Sept 7

    Pre: 1.5 Scoop Jack3d Micro, 4 Caps Max Pump, 1 Scoop Green Magnitude
    Intra: 1 Scoop BCAA/SAA

    Warm-up: Simple 6, RC work (band and weight)

    Banded Bench: 95 x 2 x 2, 115 x 2 x 2, 135 x 2 x 3, 155 x 2 (against 2 AVG Bands)
    http://youtu.be/9oIUQ3CbpRE
    Dips: +45 x 8 x 2, +45 x 7

    a1. Catback Lat Pull: AVG x 10 x 4
    a2. SG High Pull: 135 x 6 x 4

    Z Press: 95 x 5, 115 x 5, 135 x 2

    Poundstone Curls: Bar x 50

    Assistance: http://youtu.be/aklNRwhW2sk
    Notes: Wow, those curls were PAINFUL. Got video of everything but the superset today, really liked the Z press and SG HP that I did today. I'll be using those pretty frequently from this point forward. Pouring sweat today, my work capacity didn't seem to take much of a hit with the 2 weeks off. Won't find out til Monday about the strength, but overall I'm feeling good. I expect to be relatively sore tomorrow (especially in the Upper Back) but don't expect that to last long as I start putting down the BCAA/SAA again. Didn't take G8 last night, and won't tonight, because my schedule calls for Fri/Sat off of it. Overall it was a good session.

    Pump was STUPID.

  6. Awesome session. Those average bands look rough to bench against. I agree on the Z-Press. Definetly a good change up

    Meh, they aren't that bad.

    The last set was too slow, shoulda stayed with 135....

  8. I have to admit.....i was waiting for that plate to smack you in the shins during those dips lol.

    I can't say I would've been very happy if that happened.....

  10. And I was right.

    Yeah, my second set was a little better about that but that first was awkward.

  13. Also, weighed back in at 186 after the time off....


  14. Loved that stuff! Hope you guys get some solid loggers for it in there.


    And a late night workout update!


    Went to the gym at around 5 today, didn't leave until like 1030 lol.


    Did my usual 1 hour warmup/prehab work, started squatting. When I finished squatting and moved on to the first assistance lift one of the PL guys came over there and helped me out with some questions I had asked him earlier. He has a PhD in Physical Therapy and I had asked him if he had anything my wife could do for her hip (which I think is impinged) so he came by and talked to us for about an hour and gave us a list of exercises and showed us how to do them so that we could work that out. Then went back to the workout and finished up around 8 - 830 ish. Started talking to a guy that was out of the Navy and does X-fit competitively, he's trying to get stronger to make his WODs easier and we talked for an hour or so. I helped some of the guys he was training with with their Oly form, and then ran into an old football buddy from HS and we talked a little bit about PLing and competing and whatnot. He might start training with me, but we'll see about that.


    Anyway.....


    ME Lower (and my strength definitely took a hit lol)

    Pre: 1.5 Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Magnitude
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Warmup: DeFranco Limber 11, Back Squat work up to 235 x 5

    Back Squat: 325 x 4, 345 x 4

    When you see the video the weight will look like less, I was using a 55# squat bar.

    Sumo Block Pulls: 275 x 6 (soft lockout), 315 x 6 (half soft, half good), 315 x 6 (good)

    Didn't watch the first video before going to the second, saw the soft lockouts in the second so I fixed it in the third.

    Might just be from not sumo DLing often.


    Front Squat w/ Chain: 185 +80 x 7, 135 +80 x 10

    Kroc Row: 100 x 15

    a1. Walking DB Lunge: 120 x 6, 120 x 8
    a2. Hypers: BW x 20 x 2

    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkEWbJysihc
    Donezo.


    Ended up filling my shaker with BCAA/SAA like 3 times during this bear of a workout. The first two tasted good, the last ended up being just water lol.

    I expect to be VERY sore tomorrow, but hopefully not.


    Also, introduced G8 again last night and slept like a BOSS. Super deep and restful sleep, suffice to say I am very pleased with this product so far.


    I'm still a little on the fence about SAAs but I cannot deny the fact that my recovery (intra set and daily) is much better with it than it was before using it.

  16. Not really as sore as I thought I'd be.

    Which is a good thing, I mean hell, I was starting to get sore last night before bed!

  17. I have noticed I am not as sore as normal with the recovery stack..

  20. My lower body is sooo sore today though.



    Probably because I skipped my usual Active Recovery/Conditioning day......



    Still went in today and took care of business!


    ME Upper Sep 11

    Warmup: Simple 6, EFS pullapart Series x 1, Bench Press: work to 185 x 3

    2 Board Press: 205 x 3, 225 x 3, 245 x 2 (shoulder gave out, no pain. just....weird), 245 x 3 (PR), 255 x 3 (PR)

    And then I shut it down, probably coulda went to 265 but there will be time for that later down the road.


    DB Bench: 75 x 8, 85 x 8 (PR), 90 x 6 (PR)

    a1. Pendlay Row: 185 x 8 x 4
    a2. SG High Pull: 135 x 6, 155 x 6, 135 x 6

    The 155's were the ugliest things that ever happened so I dropped it back down.

    b1. Swiss Bar French Press: 55 x 10 x 2
    b2. Swiss Bar OHP: 125 x 3, 115 x 5

    First time using the Swiss Bar, it was definitely weird. I liked it though, the first set of OHP were sketchy, so I dropped the weight. The French Presses were hard to get a hang of, not sure how I feel about them but they did take a lot of stress off the elbows.

    Hammer Curl: 35 x 10, 30 x 10

    EFS Pullapart Series x 1

    http://youtu.be/pfB1vnncEKU : Video won't be live for a little while.

    And that was that.

  21. RE Lower.


    Deadlifts on today's rotation, and it is REALLY hard to get motivated for sets of 12 on deadlift.



    Warmup: Mashing Lower Body, Dynamic Hip work, Work up to 225 x 6 DL


    Con. DL: 275 x 12 x 2

    Only got the first on video. The second was even worse, almost quit at 11 but got back down and pulled the last rep. That there transcendent rep.

    Cambered Bar Good Morning: 185 x 6, 205 x 6 x 2

    Assuming a 45# bar, it may have been 55#.

    Cambered bar Squats: 225 x 10 x 2

    Hard.


    Super sore today still. Didn't feel that sore until I got to the bottom of the squats, had some major butt winking going on. This isn't normally an issue, so I'm not sure if it's just a little tightness today that didn't get worked out or if it's a technical thing with the cambered bar.

    Had some core stuff planned but today's entire workout was a mental battle and we were BEAT down. Plan to hit it tomorrow with the Strongman stuff we'll be doing for conditioning.


    Today's video: http://youtu.be/chzLKNW4y54




    Notes: Real sore right now. Tri's are pretty sore, lower body is still pretty sore from Monday. Went up to a whole scoop last night, slept a lot better than the 3/4 scoop I had been using, or more accurately fell asleep better.

    I notice some loggers notice that it puts them out, but I can't say I've had that happen. It doesn't put me out, but it does improve my sleep quality.

  22. Butt winking? .......... uhh........

    Its from west Cary barbell and its hollow.

  25. Strongman Conditioning:


    Warmup: Foam Rolling Lower, Stretch where Needed

    Pre: 4 Max Pump, 1.5 Jack3d Micro
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Hang Clean: 121 x 2 x 2, 142 x 2, 161 x 2 (Easy, but my technique needs work)

    Superset last two sets with

    Kneeling Rollouts: BW x 8 x 2 (got some core cramping on the second set)

    1 Arm DB Press: 50 x 1, 70 x 1 (plus handle weight)

    Technique needs work on these too.

    MB throw ---> Sprint: 10# x 20yds x 4
    LAX Ball Snatch : 20yds x 3 (2 caught, 1 missed)

    Drop the LAX ball initiates the sprint, catch it before the second bounce.

    Keg Style Tire Throw: Tire x 6 x 2

    Oh yeah, this happened.

    Farmer's carry w/o clamp: 105 x 50 yds

    Lost the weight twice, clamps next time.

    http://youtu.be/DX9A_clwzO4

    Consolidated the Wife's and my videos today. Will be up sometime later tonight for you guys to check tomorrow, need more hip extension on them cleans.


    Had some cramping with the rollouts today, which always happens when I do them. Not as bad as it has been before, but still. Feeling good today, not even as sore as I expected to be. A little soreness in the hammies today, but nothing major.

  26. Nice session. I read somewhere that Deion Sanders used to do the ball snatches with a tennis ball from 15 yards. I tried it and made it like 6 or 7.

  28. RE Upper today.


    Went for the BW bench challenge to start it off.


    Warmup: Simple 6, EFS Pullapart Series Bench up to 165 x 3

    Pre: 2 Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Magnitude
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Bench Press: 185 x 15

    No Arch Bench Press: 205 x 6, 185 x 8

    Swiss Bar Z Press: 85 x 6, 95 x 6, 105 x 6

    a1. Ball Pull-up: BW x 10 x 2, BW x 8
    a2. HS Low Row: 140 x 10 x 3

    Skullcrusher: 70 x 5 x 2, 70 x 4

    Poundstone Curl: Bar x 40

    http://youtu.be/didLF0etRL4

    Pumped up today. The bench presses were good today, heavy but that's to be expected with the increased ROM. No soreness today, not too tight either. Swiss bar definitely made the Z Press a little harder today.

  29. Did Z Pressing the Swiss bar make you feel like you were going to fall on your face?
