My reply is always the same - "that would be going through the motions, which neither reduces body fat or accrues LBM - why bother".
Look at all these little kids takin' care of the music biz don't their bus'ness take good care of me...

Back/ Bi day
I decided to throw in biceps today and skip arms tomorrow. Its the big firework show downtown and I want to take the kids.
We started with wide grip pull ups for 10 reps and 4 sets.
Then we did single arm cable rows for 10 per arm and 4 sets.
Then we did 6 wide grip heavy pulldowns tripled with sumo deadlifts for 10 reps and 10 barbell curls for 4 sets.
Then we did seated cable rows wide grip for 10 reps and then I did laying curls with the cables for 10 reps and 4 sets.
Then I did 10 dumbell squats with 10 alternating supinated curls for 10 per arm and 4 sets.
Then we did 2 sets of 20 front shrugs and 20 side shrugs and 10 full circle shrugs.
I know we did other stuff but my mind is foggy and tired.
Oh and Nat wants a comp diet buddy in 2 weeks. I'm considering it. I need to check on how many weeks out from the O that would be. That will make a difference on how long I do it for.
But honestly, diet is the only way to hit a true competition shape. And thats what I want for this years O. So I will have to suck it up and hit it hard this year.

less than tasty sounds accurate
07-07-2009, 09:25 AM
i've been working out EOD, and then finally gotten consistent at doing cardio the off days for an hour each time. I should look pretty good for the O with any luck

We started doing dumbell side laterals for 15 reps supersetted with overhead presses for 10 reps and 4 sets.
Then we moved to do heavy seated machine presses for 60lbs and 6 reps supersetted with 15 push ups for 4 sets.
Then back to dumbells for 4 sets doing candlestick raises for 15 reps with 6 supinated front raises.
Then we did bent over 1/4 pulses for 20 reps supersetted on the behind the neck press machine, only we faced the pad and did presses on it for 6 reps.
We did a few other things and called it a day
07-08-2009, 08:35 PM
Well I've ordered all the toys for my cut. The diet will kick in next week as will the cardio. I'm kind of amped up this time.
I used my HypX today 45 before training. I forgot just how good the stuff makes me feel when I'm tired and dragging.
Started with 4 sets of 15 60lb machine flat presses.
Went to 25lb dumbell flyes for 15 reps.
Then we did 35lb dumbell bench press for 15 reps and 4 sets.
Then we did decline dumbell flyes at 35lbs for 10 reps.
Then did 15 rep dumbell pullovers for 4 sets.
Then I did 3 sets of 40 broomstick twists with crunches.
We did a few other chest exercises and she called me done. Now I still had plenty left in me which is rare. So it was a good day.
We discussed the Olympia training and I went to dinner.

This session made me and the guy I trained with sick.
We started with heavy dumbell single arm rows for 10 reps per arm for 4 sets.
Then we did single arm bent over cable pulldowns for 15 per arm at 40lbs supersetted with 6 100lb short arm pulldowns to the chest for 4 sets.
Then we did 110lb 15 rep seated rows to the chest reaching in to touch toes with the handle. Theses are where it all started to go queasy. It really was too much weight for me by that time in the training. However I sucked it up and did my 4 sets.
Then we did bent over barbell rows with a reverse grip for 15 reps and then did 15 barbell front shrugs for 4 sets.
Then we did 45lb between the leg barbell pullthroughs for 15 reps 4 sets.
I felt better with food afterwards!

I am glad for my Sat/Sun off training because I am sore. My shoulders especially hurt along with chest.
I plan to dig the treadmill out to get geared up for the weekend.
I seem to be fighting some body issues. It has been 3 months since I have had a period. I have done multiple pregnancy tests and they all are negative, plus my IUD is still in?!
I think that some of my being tired is tied up in that issue. I can get as much sleep at night as I need and still be tired by 3pm.
07-10-2009, 11:01 AM
yeah, stress can cause that. I think some women would be happy to get to skip it for a while. They even sell that new birth control pill that does that, kind of end up with a period every 3 months
07-10-2009, 11:05 AM
I'm going to assume nothing I use could throw the tests and carry on as usual.
07-10-2009, 11:08 AM
Has low body fat never been an issue with that before. I hear that happens when some women get near comp time and their bf is real low?
07-10-2009, 11:09 AM
is the iud the plain copper or the minera?
07-10-2009, 11:36 AM
07-10-2009, 11:40 AM
hmm well, its not like a change in hormone output of the IUD did it then. and yeah, its just about impossible to get pregrnant with a piece of copper touching the uterus. I'd say just still do a pregnancy test every 2-4 weeks to be on the safe side but mostly just be happy. And i'm sure Matt's happy too

Could be myriad reasons for lack of if it has been normal pre, including:
* Leanness - <12% BF
* Training - Too much too hard or overtraining
* Diet - Too much of an energy deficiency
07-12-2009, 12:26 PM
I did arm day Friday. I have just been to busy to update.
Today is my last day of indulgent diet and is the intro day to my clen/T3 combo for the O.
All in all I hope to get where I need to be in Sept.
