    regular working sets then drop sets at end for burn out


    -Rear Delt/Reverse Flyes

    Now on to arms.


    Tri-set composed of:
    -Bicep Curls
    supersetted with:
    -Tricep Pushdown (rope attachment)

    On to cardio.
    -Did a full hour of cardio on treadmill, I worked my speed up to 4.0 MPH and still couldn't get my heart rate over 120 BPM.
    Afterwards I practiced posing. I need to get back to doing this regularly.

  6. I went out last night and bought a big mirror for a room in our place that we set up for the posing. I got a vanity mirror as well to hang from the ceiling and tilt so I can see my back. I got this idea from a previous posing coach and really liked it. I was all set to go and then realized the mirror didn't come with anything to hang it with so I went out today and bought some wall anchors and screws.


    I couldn't sleep very well last night so I finally got up early and just went to the gym. There was only like two people there which was nice. I was tired from lack of sleep so I did the lazy man method and used an exercise bike for an hour. After that, I actually felt better as my EC kicked in and I woke up so I jumped on the treadmill for another 35 minutes. Afterwards I had some leucine with some caff. free Focus XT and then we hit legs. Probably shouldn't have done an hour and half of cardio before, lol! Well my gym partner was tired too and didn't want to do anything too taxing and showed it by coming in flip flops. But we still got some work done.


    -Calf Press


    -Glute Kickbacks (shut up they work!)


    Tri-set of:
    -Laying Hamstring Curls
    -Body Weight Squats
    -Calf Raises


    Tri-set of:
    -Leg Extensions
    -Tibialis Raises
    -BW Squats


    did 5 sets of all of that


    Abs
    -Laying Crunches
    -Weighted Seated Crunches


    Yeah kind of a lazy man workout today!

  10. Ok I'm back from the Arnold Classic in Ohio. Ohio really sucks, what a crappy state. Snowed on us everyday there. My wife did well in her competition. Her class was the largest of any other with 47 competitors. She didn't place but then again she was barely on stage and they didn't allow the C or D classes to perform their routines because the classes were too big, uh, that's crap and sounds like their problem since we spent quite a bit of money on this. Regardless, she did well enough to pick up a sponsor and also did a photo shoot later.

    The expo was good, super packed and surprised that a lot of big companies that were at the Olympia weren't here. Friday was good and we got to see Arnold as he passed through with his squad of security. Saturday the expo was horrible because it was so incredibly packed that we left around 11 AM and didn't come back. The Olympia expo is far better and the Arnold deals were disappointing with crappy hand-outs. Hey we all love free stuff! I think BB.com, ON, BSN, Gaspari, Muscle Pharm, and surprisingly EAS were the top contributors there, IMO. The mens' bodybuilding finals were really cool. Fred Smalls put on the absolute best posing routine. The Dymatize party was probably the best non-arnold based event we went to and I fell in love with Bavarian pretzels in Columbus. Parking fees were ridiculous and you still had to park blocks away and freeze and then go to another place for a different event and then pay for their parking too. Overall it was pretty fun but I rate the Olympia over this. I got lots of t-shirts, however we paid for several of them, and actually very few samples, but some look interesting.

    lol, I'll never make pro, my true aspirations lay in grad school. However, my wife is on her way to making pro and it's her ultimate goal. We got a tentative photo shoot set up for next week and did another one at the Arnold. I'll share some pics when they come in.

  17. I ran into Dusty Hanshaw at the Arnold Olympia. I got to train with him at the Gold's Gym on Flamingo in Las Vegas at the 2010 Olympia and was in one of his training videos. He interviewed my and my wife and had some fun in this video during the Arnold.



    If you want to skip straight to the good part (me!) then go to 5:40.

    That's about how I felt. It was fun but not worth the whole ordeal if my wife wasn't competing.

    Yes so you can share in my misery! No, it really wasn't bad, we just had a lot of things go wrong that I didn't even bother posting. However, I hold to my statement that the Olympia is much better.

  23. Shoulders and abs today.


    -OHP
    These felt good today so I decided to go for a PR and tried 225. Well, I can't count it cause I just didn't get deep enough but I did ok. I got video of it but was also frustrated that the beams hid the weight plates.







    -Side Lateral Raise with DB's
    compound setted with:
    -Front DB Raises
    did a bunch of these


    -Rear Delt Cable Flyes
    Did about 6 sets here as well




    Then did a three station ab circuit till we were tired.

  28. Started with an hour of cardio today, split between the treadmill and basketball. Then on to chest.


    -Bench Press
    135
    225
    275
    325 PR! I felt good today so instead of going to 315 I decided to try 325 again and got it for a clean solid 1 and then 3 assisted.
    225


    -DB Incline Press
    worked up to 110 DB's


    -Cable Flyes
    doesn't look like much but we did a lot of sets


    Then spent a pleasant afternoon with the dentist.

    lol thanks! The pr was great because I've been stuck on that one for over a year. The dentist, well, it's the expense associated that kills me.I know I'm slacking on updates. I'm still hitting the gym but I'm also packing up and getting ready to move out of state and get all my school things in order.
