    Front Squats
    45x8
    60x5
    75x5
    90x5
    105x5
    115x1
    125x1
    135x1**+10lbs PR

    BB Lunges + Wall Sits (SS)
    20x10 + 30 sec
    20x10 + 30 sec

    One Foot Elevated Glute Bridge
    2x10

    Planks
    2x30 sec

    Workout got pushed back later than I had anticipated. Things just came up. But on a positive side, I hit a new squat PR of 135x1. Initially I had 130 on the bar, because that is what I stalled on last time. But I wanted to try for 135. Go big or go home, and I was amazed when I got it up. Pretty stoked about that.

    TUES LOG

    DB Floor Press
    3x12

    DB Iso Hold Press (each arm)
    3x12

    DB Fly
    3x12

    DB Close Grip Press
    3x10

    BW Feet Elevated Dips
    10x8x7

    DB Tri Ext
    3x10

    Finisher (SS):
    DB Snatch (each arm) + Up Downs 3x10


    Last night's carb up was much needed. I had a good workout today and have even moved onto feet elevated dips again, yay. There was one or two reps where my wrist was positioned awkwardly and that hurt, but otherwise I felt strong. I tried close grip DB Press for the first time today to try and isolate my tri's. I kept my elbows as close to my body as possible, lowering it down to the bottom half of my chest, and pressing up again. However, on some reps I would feel an uncomfortable stretch in my biceps. May need to glance over a few videos again.

    Yeah - doing pretty good when work is killing me (between actual real work & changing the internet settings blocking me from everything...) Showing your log to my wife, she's been getting into lifting the last few months as well. Still a little timid about big weight, but she's coming around...
    (shameless plug....) New FF log up (thanks iparatroop) with some fun stuff going on

    Awesome! Just wait until she starts hitting PR's and seeing some muscle definition. Tell her squats do a booty good. Just curious what kind of program is she on?

    I thought I saw your name in the log section! I'll check it out for sure. I'm also running some FF stuff. High 5! When I'm finished with that I might start a new log. I think it's almost time to retire from the weight loss section. I'll keep you guys updated.

    Oh yeah!... She's always been into running/cardio type stuff, but she caught on to the dramatic changes weights can bring from watching me over time. She's been running something similar to Layne Norton's generic bulking plan, going from memory it's something like this (thinking there's something I'm missing, but you get the idea):

    Lower
    Squat: 3-4X6-8
    leg curl: 3-4X6-8
    Lunges: 2-3X10-12
    Calf raise: 3-4X6-8
    Front Squat: 2-3X10-12

    Upper
    Flat bench: 3-4X6-8
    Row: 3-4X6-8
    Shoulder press: 2-3X10-12
    Pulldown: 2-3X10-12
    Triceps: 1-2X12-15
    Biceps: 1-2X12-15


    Awesome - please do! Heck yeah - you've put in some serious work as your new avi shows

    [SOTD]: System of a down - Chop Suey \m/
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrQsGeKN6qk

    AM:
    40 yd sprints
    20 yd shuffles

    12 minutes

    Sumo DL
    70x5
    90x5
    110x5
    130x4
    150x1
    170x1
    190x1
    205x1

    SLDL
    90x8
    110x6
    130x5
    100x10

    Pendlay row
    30x8
    50x8
    70x7
    80x4

    Reverse Grip Row
    80x7x10x10

    DB Bent Over Row (right side only)
    3x10 (fast on the concentric, hold at the top, slow on the eccentric)

    Modified BW Inverted Row
    10,7

    Hit hammies/glutes/back today. Felt strong today and endurance is definitely up. I'm tired from the workout, yes, but not overly fatigued. Decided to isolate my right side only for db rows. Still not taking a chance with the left side just yet. And!!! I'm pretty stoked with my sumo pulls, especially since I can't remember the last time I even did sumo's. Early last year maybe? Just a tad of trouble during ******* for 205. Would be awesome to hit 250 if I keep at it.

    I wish I could get my wife into lifting. It would be really great for her. She gets so damned stressed out and all she does is stew and watch those stupid real housewives shows instead of releasing it in a productive way.

    Great workout!! Those sumos are impressive! Strong pulls, nice job!

    You can hit 250 for sure. Next week drop it back and do 3-4 warmups and shoot for 6 sets of 3 at 175-180. Then the following week try for 5 sets of 5 at 165-170, then the next week warm up, and do singles up to 215 and I'll bet you get it no problem

    Mine started noticing the results I was getting, plus I think she heard me talk enough about lifting that she figured she might as well give it a try

    Yeah- same here, but after sending a ton of links and articles, etc about why that isn't the case, she did come around. Plus she was in a wedding earlier this summer and got a few compliments on her new found buffness - that sealed the deal right there

    I've seen a few of those shows before, lol. All they do is dress up and host parties. Pissing content. Your wife is currently preggers, right? Well, if she asks about getting the baby weight off, you could spin it around and say lifting will help with that post pregnancy weight and help tighten & "tone" everything up.

    You can hit 250 for sure. Next week drop it back and do 3-4 warmups and shoot for 6 sets of 3 at 175-180. Then the following week try for 5 sets of 5 at 165-170, then the next week warm up, and do singles up to 215 and I'll bet you get it no problem
    Thanks!! You're strong as an ox, so logic dictates that I listen to you. Just curious, is this a powerlifting program? Wondering how achievable that is for someone like me, because I literally have not pulled sumo since last year. Maybe I'm doubting myself.

    I'm telling you, it's contagious!

    There are different levels of female bodybuilders. Bikini/athletic bodies come to mind.

    Definitely tried that logic with her too, just was met with other excuses. lol oh well c'est la vie!

    And yes, that is a powerlifting techique for gaining strength. If you want to push your 1RM up, it's a great way to do it

    Haha yeah, ultimately she has to like it and want to pursue it herself. Sounds like a good program. I don't know that I'd be eating enough to support a PL program but at least I have a baseline and you know I will try pushing it to the best of my ability. Appreciate the sound advice, Swanky pants.

    not a full scale pl program, just a good rep/set range to gain some strength. A PL program would be quite a bit more intensive. You should be fine with your current diet if you wanted to give it a shot for a few weeks and see what happens

    10 Squat Jumps

    Total: 66 reps

    Today was supposed to be high rep legs and shoulders but my hip flexors and shoulders weren't cooperating. Hip Flexors were tight and both shoulders felt bummy. Still letting my back rest, and I already popped some PRE-WO so there was no turning back. Today's workout was kind of thrown together last minute. Did some heavy box squats and single legged movements. Finished up with quick intervals with no rest. It's actually supposed to be 3 rounds for 100 reps but my quads were already smoked! Def going to need my BCAA's tonight! I don't know if I will be walking outside tonight. It's been raining pretty hard all day.

    You are correct, sir! Trying to incorporate more single legged movements (band walks, single leg glute bridge, split squat, rdl) and I've noticed it's definitely helped with activating my glutes and squat drive. All of those also kill my glutes.

    Absolutely. I like really high rep walking lunges. Like 100 reps as fast as possible

    I am jealous of your glutes (autocorrect really wants this word to be "flutes") and would need a wheelchair on standby if I attempted 100 in a row after squats

    Lol, I like them as a finisher and usually have to sit on my bench for 5-10 minutes before climbing the stairs or my face sometimes ends up meeting the floor. Lol

    I did 50 walking lunges in a row after my morning walk today. In the back of my mind I was thinking, "I hate Swanks for giving me this idea." Haha, but once I sat down it was all gravy. Going to try and shoot for 100 eventually.
