    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

  4. Max Effort Lower Body 8/9/2011


    Max Effort Lower Body


    Front Squats, work up to max, 185x3, 225x1 (PR)

    Glute Ham Raise Machine 3x7

    Pullthroughs 3x8-10 reps

    DB Rows, 125lb db, 3x5-7

    Hammer Curls 3x10-12 reps

    ***Notes***
    Felt pretty good, was impressed with myself on front squats. The rest of the workout was great, always look forward to dumbbell rows. Diet was pretty solid today, enough cals and protein in. I really don't enjoy having to eat this much, as I have a bad stomach, but the thought of progressing sounds nice. In other news, I was watching a report on CBS by Scott Pelley, who was reporting from Somalia. The refugees in the camp and those entering were severely malnourished, and it got me thinking. I'm really lucky to have what I have and be given the chance to even pick up a hobby like bodybuilding or powerlifting. I'm not trying to preach to anyone, it was just a sight to see people who don't even have the basic needs of life. I am thankful for what I have every day, and to be able to pursue my goals without such a strain on the mind and body as these people are enduring.

  9. sorry I didn't get to post thursday's lift! It will be up here in minutes! In regards to today, I had plumbing work to do all hours that my gym was open 8am-530pm, so I reluctantly missed a workout. I will probably go tomorrow and switch up my days, or just go on three days or something. I am not sure.

  11. Max Effort Upper Body 8/11/2011


    Max Effort Upper Body


    Floor Press, Dumbbells for warm ups including 85's for 5

    Barbell with 185 for 3 sets of 5 reps

    Rope Pressdown and Skull Crushers 3 sets, 5-7 reps

    Thick Bar Barbell Shoulder Press 135 3 sets 5 reps

    Facepulls 3 sets of 10

    ***Notes***
    Felt pretty good for doing floor presses for the first time, was a bit nervous about dropping the weights as I don't have a spotter. I am getting pretty damn hungry to do this meet and have competition once again.

    Today was a special exception, I had to help out a good friend who had a plumbing disaster haha. Believe me, I HATE missing lifting days, but I will make it up somehow! I love to train way too much to give up.

  13. Great workout, dynamic upper body. Will post happenings later!
  14. Dynamic Effort Upper Body 8/15/2011


    Dynamic Effort Upper Body

    Speed Work 50% BB Bench 135lbs 10 sets 2 reps, each set under 3 seconds, 3 types of grips

    Flat Bench DB Press 45's 3x25

    Dips and Rope Pressdown, 60 reps total

    Reverse Pec Dec Fly 2x10

    DB Side Raises 25's 2x8-10

    Reverse Bench Rows 90lb EZ Bar 3x10

    ***Notes***
    Went very well, the speed work definitely needs improvement and focus, bench is probably my weakest exercise. Otherwise, I tried reverse bench rows for the first time, they seemed pretty decent. I like facepulls just as much. Diet was on point today with plenty of protein and cals. Hopefully if I am indeed gaining weight, I do not gain too much for February or August '12 comps that I plan on competing in..

  15. Pretty solid lower body day today, will post later!
  16. Max Effort Lower Body 8/16/2011


    Max Effort Lower Body

    Max Effort Movement-Good morning squat variation 185 3 sets of 3

    Lying Leg Curl 4x5 reps

    Pullthroughs 3x8 reps

    Dumbbell Rows 125lb dumbbell 3x5-7

    Hammer Curls 3x8-10

    ***Notes***
    The good mornings went ok but seemed pretty foreign to me. I don't have a decent bar for good mornings so I just decided to incorporate it into the squat.The rest is pretty self explanatory. Going to start doing some heavy singles here soon to test my numbers, and also do a decent weigh in on the scale. Please comment and chat! I need some words!

  17. If GMs are foreign, use bands for reps just to get use to the movement.

    Or

    Place a safety bar where you're bent over ( right before you come up in the exercise ) and just do them that way. Like a suspended goodmorning.

    My best GM was 265 x 5 x 5. Haven't done them in about a year and just did the suspended version and banged out 275 x 3 x 6 after ME squat session. So far I say it's a good lift

  18. Thanks man that's a good idea I'll try that out. Were my numbers that weak? =\

  19. whats yoru 1RM squat? i think your good morning should be like 60% or more of it

  20. Well, last time I did it was around 315 or so as a pr.

    Great workout, the Olympic squats were awesome and really hit everything hard hopefully. Going to adjust my stance and hopefully develop better overall squat strength.

  24. quick question...

    whyd you do 185 x 5

    and

    why did you attempt 225 again?
    Serious Nutrition Solutions

  25. That was a test weight since I'd never done floor press. And I attempted becatae my form wasn't perfect
