We started on the chest press machine only I used inside handles and was facing the seat with chest on the pad and did a version of behind the neck overhead shoulder press with it for 10 reps. These were supersetted with 15 side lateral raises in a full circle over the head for 4 sets.
Then we took a 35lb easy bar and did a version where I started at nose level with a wide grip and then too it up and over my head and behind the neck for a 1-2 rep. We did 12 of these and did 3 overhead presses with it for 4 sets.
Then I took the bar and did 15 upright rows with it for 4 sets.
Then I used dumbells and did 10 per arm on alternating side raises with 10 push ups on my dumbells for 4 sets.
Then I did 15 front raises with a twist at the top supersetted with 6 pronated presses.
We did a few other things and then finished off with 1 set of 50 35lb shrugs.
I'll do some cardio tonight before bed as well.

Started with 6 back to back sets of 6 rep dumbell presses at 45lbs.
Then we did 15 flat bench flyes with 25lb dumbells and then held them straight up and did 10 leg lifts for 4 sets.
Then we did 45lb overhead extensions for 15 reps and then supersetted them with 10 per arm alternating presses for 4 sets.
Then we did my favorites we used a step up platform, put hands on it in push up stance and put our feet on a 25lb plate and extended our feet out pushing the plate. Then drug it in and up to our chest with our feet. we did 10 of these and then leaving feet on the plate we did 10 push ups hands on platform for 4 sets.
Then we did 4 sets of the incline presses at 15 reps.
For some reason I can't remember the rest of it.
I have also added in sublingual B12 pellets and Gaspari Mitotropin and phosphatidyl choline.

I will be slowing down and not doing a competition style cut. My daughter has decided based on my competition weight that she is fat. Well neither one of us is. However she sees Natalie and others critiquing my bodyfat and me not eating things I want and is getting a bad image based on this.
It is a fine line we walk with kids and their perception of the sport. So I have been eating some things that I would not normally so she sees that I don't die and blow up if I do...
So this will be a slow process!

Yes, the kids come first. It will just mean either not getting as low as I want to go or taking longer to get there. All the while explaining to her the whys and the differences between cutting for shows and the rest of the world.

you could have at least sent me the link ya big jerk

Better that she grow up with a HEALTHY self-image and knowledge of what's good and what's not than screwed up and with eating disorders and psychological issues like many females these days.

We started with narrow handle short arm rows for 15 reps and 4 sets.
Then we did single handle 10 per arm full range rows supersetted with bent over lat pulldowns in the cables for 15 reps and 4 sets.
Then we did a triple set of the row machine for 15 reps to the hyperextensions for 10 reps to pop squats for 15 reps and 4 sets.
Then we did dumbell squats for 15 reps and 4 sets.
It was nice training in the morning because its behind me and I have the rest of the night to do housework etc..
I will also do cardio this evening.

Whoops I forgot to add the 60 lying leg roll ups in between sets.
Not sure how I forgot those? I guess that early my mind in on auto snooze!

I did 15 overhead extensions tripled with 10 decline sit ups and 15 skullcrushers for 4 sets no rests.
Then I did 15 tricep pushdowns tripled with 10 standing kickbacks and 10 45lb bar curls for 4 sets.
Then we did 20reps of 1/4rep decline ab crunches with 20 tricep bench dips for 4 sets.
Then we did incline supinated curls for 15 supersetted with 6 reverse grip 45lb barbell curls for 4 sets.
Then we did incline hammer curls for 15 reps and 4 sets.
I can't remember what else, when I pulled in the driveway I got out and mowed the grass for cardio!
I'm also up to 129 on the scale... Now a good bit of its muscle, however I'm getting too big and I'm thinking of hardcore cutting.

I've been "cutting" for 3 days now (no binging so far; for the last 3 days I have only gone 3 days maximum before a binge cycle, so that's a RECORD!) And the double cardio (albeit only 20 minutes) the last 2 days have been ok as well (i.e. no forcing). Will be very interesting what happens over the next 6 weeks re DCP/Leviathan Reloaded and NO binging (also looking forward to using Eviscerate while I am in the US; Matt said I could try some)
My day OFF today; not quite sure what to do with myself
05-15-2009, 07:46 PM
I'm still managing mine decently, but avoiding the cardio amazingly every day that is an off day from strength. oh well

Well today is one of two days we are moving the factory. So I'll be getting in 3 hrs of heavy lifting and carrying boxes into the U-Haul and loading and unloading.
I want to get majority of it done today if it kills me because today is leg day and tomorrow I'll hurt. I can already feel my back hurting from carrying boxes.
I took some pics over the weekend of where I'm at now. These will be before pics as I really want to tone down some size. My biceps cold measured 13 3/4 inches. That is 3/4 of an inch bigger than they were when I started the log.
I'll post the pics when I can figure out resizing them. This is going to be a long and frustrating day. Not only do I hate vomitting from leg day , I found that I truly hate driving a U-Haul. I feel like I'm going to hit something.

Mowed the grass.
Then it was off to do legs.
We started with zig zag lunges holding a weighted medicine ball overhead to one end of the gym. Then we did a set of 10rep 80lb leg extensions. We did 4 sets.
Then we did 15 good mornings for 4 sets.
Then we did the medicine balls again and did walking lunges twisting the medcine ball from side to side. We supersetted these with 15 leg curls for 4 sets.
Then we did 4 sets of 15 per leg of jane fonda squats pulling one leg up and back and squeezing.
Then we did 4 sets of 15 stiff legged dead lifts.
We finished off with 4 sets of 15 rep calves.
My back is killing me so I expect tomorrows U-Haul loading and unloading to be misery.
Edited to add in the 20 min of treadmill I just did to try to loosen up.

Sounds like a really productive two days!

I had an awesome shoulder day. I left the gym burning!
We started with 10 per arm on a dumbell jerk and press for 4 sets with 20 leg lifts for 4 sets.
Then we did leaning arm laterals at 10 per arm with 20 rep 1/4 pulses for 4 sets.
Then we did 15 side lateral raises with 10 full range over the head for 4 sets.
Then we did 15 bent over rear delt raises with 6 overhead presses.
Then we did 15 bent arm raises straight up and then out in front and back down with 6 reps off the thigh and straight up and back in to shoulder level and then down for 4 sets.
We did some other stuff and called it a day.
I did 15 min of morning cardio and was most proud of myself when we took the kids for ice cream and Matt tried to get me to get some! But I refused it even though I wanted some!
I'm going to do some cardio before bed also.

i know im incredibly late, but im definitely subbed in on this for the remainder. im going to be bulking for another 3-4 weeks before my summer officially starts, then its time to begin my summer long cut!! i look forward to seeing your results, keeping up with your log will only pump me up to start shedding some lbs in a few weeks!!
05-20-2009, 09:39 AM
Awww Rosie and Chuck, hugs!!
My oldest daughter has a DARE graduation tonight that she wants to attend so I'll be hitting the gym earlier today for chest.
The past 2 days I have been waking up wiped out and unmotivated. I'm going to up my methylcobalamin to 3 pellets. They seem to help after I take them and they are sublingual so no pills to swallow
05-20-2009, 10:11 PM
Well she switched days to back apparently
Started with 100lb pulldowns for 10 to the chest using no back swing, strict form. We supersetted these with 15 pull ups reverse grip under the dead rack for 4 sets.
Then we did bent over lat pulldowns for 15 reps supersetted with 55lb dumbell deads only on the way up we twisted it to come in at our side ( these were fun to watch yourself in the mirror as shoulder definition and bicep tricep splits really came out.) We did 10 of them for 4 sets.
We did 15 pop squats with 95lb bent over barbell rows for 4 sets.
Then we did single dumbell between legs and did 10 per side on alternating dumbell deads for 4 sets.
Then we took the dumbell and did between the leg pull throughs for 15 reps.
Can't remember what else I did because I don't write my training down and I did it hours ago and then went to Alyssas school function.

LOL yeah thankfully all the girls that compete don't feel the need to comment or touch because they probably get the same treatment.
Its alyways the non-gym people that get out and want to touch you or harrass you. I actually had 2 young guys say to each other as they passed me that they needed to step outside so they could regain their masculinity. I just rolled my eyes. I don't have time for stupid people.
05-21-2009, 10:53 AM
you should have grabbed them by the balls and let them know they you re-gained their masculinity
