    Legs today,

    Inner thigh
    Worked up to stack for a set

    Outer thigh
    Worked up to stack for a set

    Leg press
    Used the stack on a wt stack leg press machine for 20+ reps. Just making sure I'm all fully warm and trying to pre fatigue the quads before squats which leads to....

    Smith squats
    495x2... A cpl things here, I didn't plan on going that high but 405 felt so easy I stopped at 2 reps and went up to 495... Did not realize how much the leg press and even the 405 took out of me... The 495x2 was not to failure. I could have probably gotten 5-6 with it but I am trying to keep squats short of failure. I have always been hip dominant when I squat so I wanna make sure I am just driving with my legs and not letting my ass get high to get the rep up. Back felt good but i gotta fight the urge to jump up in wt too quick.

    Single leg cable kick backs.
    2 sets.

    Had to leave so I was out.

    Over all not bad. I know some people knock smith squats but I'll take where I'm at rt now. Legs have grown a lot in the last cpl months, they have grown since I added squats in like a month ago.

    Peace.

    Gotta keep at these, may make them my primarily pec ex... Never really hit a "groove" on them so next time should be better.
    Lower the weight, you arnt hitting parallel on these at all.

    It's the angle of the vid. I am going bellows parallel on these. It's the same depth as the other squat vid I have up but that's a different angle so you can see it better. Not arguing at all, just gotta tape from a better angle and higher vantage point.

    Peace

    Oops I thought you were talking about the squats when you said that, my bad. In regards to these, I'm fine with the depth. I go the same depth if I have no wt at all. I don't feel going deeper is healthy for my cuffs, shoulders or even my pecs. I understand your view but I just don't see any benefit in going deeper, the stretch is extremely enough as it is.

    Peace.

    Bad day at gym. Well it was ok...just real annoying. Did chest today and wanted to just do some different presses....first was gonna do hammer inclines... 4 guys using it and taking 3-4 mins between sets bull****ting...so I ask if they got a lot left... "We just started, we got 6 or 7 sets left each"... Well considering they were all using it and taking 3-4 mins between each turn I figured is do something else (yea when I was done they were still on it)... I go to the smith machines and THERE ARE NO BENCHES....ok, onto something else... I look for a flat bench to just do some close grips and try a high rep set of reg benches (remember I have not done flat benches in a LONG time, only close grips)... Well 2 open benches but no bars at all...DBs only go up to 120's and some dudes are acting like they are doing rows with them (I guess they were rows)... Over to the decline bench, been a long time so I'll try them...NOPE, 2 guys doing sit ups on it....ahhhhh... Frustrated so I don't even wanna talk to anyone cause I don't wanna be rude and I'm so close (I have to be careful when I get frustrated, last time I got this frustrated I had to ask an idiot that was moaning on every rep if he was working out or filming a gay porn...yea I know I should have just kept my mouth shut)... Every kid in the gym is walking around ****y with his chest puffed out ... I'm walking down the isles and the room is limited so I do the polite kinds half turn sideways when I pass people so there is plenty of room and these lill kids are not moving at all...wth??? So I just went to the back did dips, went to do some high rep crossovers and.... 3 kids on the free motion cable machine.... This can't be happening.... I find the old crossover unit that has nicks in the cable and just use it anyway... Furthest thing from smooth that there is.... Did some pushups to finish and got out of there... Took some deep breaths outside and was fine.

    Have a great nt everyone.

    I am thinking about and probably will change my split some. I have gotten away a lill bit from what I know works and since I'm only on baby trt and watching my cals I think I gotta get back to it. Most likely split will be work out one chest, delts and tris then workout two back, bis and legs.... Work outs being alternated Mon, wed and Friday and on back/leg day I will squat but for back only do over head exs (pulldows and chins) one back/leg day and on the next back/leg day I will do bent rows and may try high rep deads but only do isolation exs and leg presses for legs. Hope ya understand what I mean. I wanna drop volume further to 2 work sets a body part and try and slow my rep speed down some.

    I'll finish this week normal and start next week off with my new/old split

    Peace

    Back and some bis today.. not a great day. I tried but I wasn't really 'feeling it' today.

    Seated cable rows
    Stack+90 for 1 set

    Wide grip pulldowns
    1 set

    Behind the neck pulldowns
    1 set

    Free motion cable preacher curls
    2 sets.

    That's all. Glad I didn't miss a workout but just wasn't feeling it today. I may take wed and Thursday off and just do legs Friday and start my "new" split on Monday.

    Peace

    Well the reason I wasn't feeling the last workout is cause I was getting a stomach bug. Took thurs and Friday off... COULD have trained but the cpl extra days did me good. Back in gym today with my new/old split. Heavy back, high rep legs and bis today.

    Close grip pulldowns
    275 to failure

    1 ARM hammer ISO rows... Had no idea what to use so I worked up to a 25 and then all the 45's it will hold for around 10 reps. Will use all 45's next time but I then I gotta change exs or go higher and higher on reps. I liked this ex too.... No hammer low row but still a good machine if the seat ht is set rt.

    Leg presses
    Ok, I NEVER do high reps but I am trying to now so the wt was pretty light today but if you ain't used to high reps and all of a sudden do them.... Real lt wt still hurts like hell.

    Standing calf raises
    Stack for 2 sets

    Rv grip chins super set with cable curls.
    One super set.
    Ok this was weird. I do full rep chins and I always have but I don't do them that often... the weird thing was when I was in the 270-280 range I could do 10-12 of them (yea I know it ain't a lot but hey... I wasn't lt) but today I think I got 5-6 at 250??? WTH??? I know I lose some strength with wt but my other pulling exs have not really gone down at all and this is the one ex I didn't expect to decrease... I mean I am moving 20-30 less pounds so even IF I got weaker I thought worst case my reps would be the same. Maybe doing the ISO rows took more out of my back and bis than I thought.... I will see next time.

    Dat be all
    Peace.

    Very good possibly on that. I know I have to be careful of rotation of exs to get the most out of my workouts.

    Been sick so I took yesterday off and went today instead...still felt weak as hell but just didn't wanna miss a day.

    Free motion pulldowns
    2 sets

    Deads
    2 sets of 8 with 405.... Wanted to just do one set and go for 20 but at around rep 6 I realized how weak I was and that I couldn't really take deep breaths so I stopped at 8 and did another set of 8. I wanna get used to high rep deads cause I don't wanna go too heavy anymore and I saw nick best do 24 with 500 so I want to get 25 with 500.

    Hammer grip free motion preacher curls
    2 sets.

    To beat to do legs.... Body just weak and tired so it will be legs on Monday. Hope I can breath well enough to hit some high reps with legs on Monday.

    225 to failure

    Free motion overhead press
    Stack to failure (gonna have to find a diff delt ex next workout)

    Cable crossover

    Gym was PACKED! I was ready to be pissed but somehow people finished just as I needed each piece of equipment... First time THAT happened for me at this place. I did do the crossovers instead of cable benches I wanted to try cause it opened up but overall a pretty good day. Felt good today.

    Yesterday....

    Legs, back and bis

    My back felt good so I've made the decision that when it feels good I'm gonna do deads....if its not quite as good ill do squats and if it just don't feel good it will be neither.

    So it felt good...

    Hammer single leg ext and curls
    2 sets of each at around 20 reps.

    Free motion pulldowns.
    One set with both arms then one set 1 ARM at a time. Tried single ARM because I can't add wt to machine and I like the ex so that will work.

    Single ARM Freemotion rows.
    1 set each ARM

    NOW....
    Deads
    135x8, 225x6, 315x4.... 415x2 was gonna be my work set and go high reps but it felt so LT I went up....495x2...same as last set....545x2 still had a LOT left... But didn't wanna push it. As long as my form is perfect it seems fine.... I am sure I could have pulled 650-700 for a single with no problem. I lift wts cause I enjoy it and I HAVE.TO do it the way I enjoy doing it. I am gonna TRY and be smart but I don't work out to stay fit or get women or anything....I work out cause I like being big and strong. If I can't train how I like then I either won't train or ill drop 40lbs and lift for health a cpl days a week. I know some may not understand but think about it this way... If someone gets hurt surfing, or sky diving, or racing cars everyone says 'at least he was doing what he loves/loved' well its the same thing for me.... I gotta do this how I ENJOY it or not do it.

    Peace.

    I'll post some vids later of the last 2 dead sets showing how easy they were.

    Workout yesterday sucked...was beat and didn't listen to this creaky old body.....

    Anyway I did try something new, a ghetto version of the "isolator" using a foot cuff. Liked it a lot so now I gotta get the real thing. Anyone ever try it?

    Here is a vid of the "po-folk" version

    Yeah I saw somewhere you have to size before upload.
    It is not the kind of car you drive. It is whether you can flip it.
