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.
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
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.
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
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..
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
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!
If GMs are foreign, use bands for reps just to get use to the movement.
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
whats yoru 1RM squat? i think your good morning should be like 60% or more of it

Max Effort Upper Body 8/18/2011 and Dynamic Effort Lower Body 8/20/2011
Max Effort Upper Body (Sorry no fancy lettering it gets to be a pain after a while!)
Floor Press, Work up to max, 185x5 225x1 225x1 (failed)
Rope Pressdown and Skull crushers 60 reps total, sets of 10-15
Dumbbell Press 55lb's 3x5-7
Reverse Bench Rows with EZ Bar 3x10-12
Good workout, little pissed off at the fail on the last set, but I was weary of not having a spotter. Otherwise, I am pretty ok with my numbers. Still wanting to increase as always!
Dynamic Effort Lower
Olympic Style Squats 185 w/ light bands 7x2
Leg Press 245 3x15-20 (Lactic Acid Training)
GHR type machine (not Sure) 3x5-7 w/ 25lb plate
Shrugs 315lb 3x8-10
Barbell Curls 95lbx2x6 65lbx8
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.
whyd you do 185 x 5
why did you attempt 225 again?
Serious Nutrition Solutions
That was a test weight since I'd never done floor press. And I attempted becatae my form wasn't perfect
Yeah I hope! Thanks. Just was worried about dropping it with spotter, not sure it would hit me guess I'm just paranoid. I'll def go for it next time.
8/22/2011 Dynamic Effort Upper Body
Flat Bench 3 grips 10 sets 135lb sets of 2 reps under 3 seconds
Incline DB Bench 45's 3x15
Rope Pressdown 60 reps total
Reverse Pec Dec 2x10 130lb set (15lb increase)
Front Raises 2x10 25lb Db's
Facepulls 3x10 120lb,110lb, 90lb.
Workout went ok, feel like my flat bench is lagging. Need more variation on tricep stuff, and especially working on my overall bench form. I feel bench is the weakest of my three, and needs improvement.
Sorry for being out of this for so long, Subscriptions got deleted somehow >.> anyways workouts looking great! Do you take a pre-workout at all?
Lately no. May later. Have in the past. They work pretty good for me. Just wanna spend dough on protein food and a multi first and foremost.
If you want to win a free pre-workout, you should jump on this contest it's simple to win and if you decide to log it you get a free bottle of Drive or RPM. I already won :P

8/23/11. Max effort lower body.
Rack deads. 135x1 225x1 315x1 365x1 395xfail
Glute ham raise type machine thing 35lb plate 4x7 single leg.
Pullthroughs 3x10 110lb on cable machine
Db rows 125lb dumbbell 3x7-8 hit pr on rep amount

A bit disappointed on rack deads, but did ok. Was exhausted for some reason. Definitely was frustrated over it. Tried sumo but I feel normal stance might be the best for me.
