Joe's comeback training log

Page 3 of 6 First 12345 ... Last

  1. Spent the day in the office and then cleaned up the gym. It was later than I had hoped so made it quick.

    standing strict overhead presses 135 5x8
    Landmine T bar row 2plates and a quarter 5x10 with little rest between sets.

    Called it a day, sholder pressing the day after you bench is definitely not ideal. Sometimes life gets in the way of training.


  2. Reverse Hypers 2 plates and a quarter a side. 2x12

    Deadlifts worked up to a nice and easy 455x3

    Still legged GMS close stance, 145, 165, 185 x 8 Very strict trying to get the hamstrings to stretch.

    Reverse Hypers 3 plates a side 4x10

    band pullaparts 4x15

    So I scrapped the sumo deadlift. And I need to get a SS bar to do strict GMs. I will add it to my Christmas list with 3 pairs of 5/8 chain. All in all I am pretty happy with my training. Still along way to go, but I will take progress.

    Sweet...!

  4. raw box squats 285x8

    Gm's worked up to 325x5

    Dimmel Deadlifts 225 2x12 and then 1x9 and my glutes were on fire.

    Feeling good, ordered a SS bar today from Black Widow. They are having a 12 hour pre black Friday sale.

  5. Still having pec issues. This is getting real old.

    Did some bench to 315x5, did a lot of lighter higher rep sets, not sure exacty what though.

    Chins 5x5

    Band pushdowns 4x15

    Band pullaparts 4x15

    Moving my bench to Wednesday. Lets see if it helps not benching after having a bar on my back for squats/GM's.

    chins 5x5

    facepulls 3x12

    front/side laterals 3x12

    30 minutes on the elyptical

  7. Reverse Hypers 2plates a quarter a side 2x12

    Deads worked up to 475x3

    GM's 235, 285, 335x5

    Weights are ramping up nice. Now I need to start eating more. I have been a vegetarian for the last two years, I ate my first piece of chicken in that time for lunch today. Going to stay away from red meat but I need more protein sources. Fish and eggs were not cutting it. Safety Squat bar from Black Widow came in today. Nice piece of equipment. I am going to play around with it on Thursday.

    Joe, did you find being a vegan limited your strength?
    I know when I did it years back, I slowly did see some falling in strength, and I did not want to just rely on diary.
    Oh, nice little self pre xmas gift there with SSB.

  9. Solid work, Joe. I'm jealous of the new equipment too.

  10. Paul, I was not Vegan, I ate fish and eggs. I can't say it limited my strength because I was not training. I have only been back at it since the first of the year and that was limited in the beginning. It started to ramp up in April/May and then my son was born on June 29th which set me back a little. I am feeling now as I progress something is missing. I just can't eat enough food to get the protein, and I don't want to rely completely on powders. Eggs are boring, I don't want to eat too much fish as it does contain heavy metals. I don't like factory farming and try to buy organic chicken. I will see as I go on. I eat a lot of lentils. It gets expesive to eat good, but as I get older these things become more of a concern.

  11. If you think eggs are boring I think you're doing it wrong.

  12. They get boring. And that is a lot of eggs to get your protein requirements.

    Yeah, it is a lot of eggs to meet the protein requirements. Definitely give you that. I just like the variety of foods one can make with eggs - scrambled with a variety of veggies (my least favorite preparation of eggs, but great once in a while), omlettes (always great), fried eggs (what I do every day), poached eggs, deviled eggs (like scrambled, only good once in a while), and the trusty hardboiled egg.

    Gotcha, I was a lacto veg. for a bit. Had to get some protein via animal sources, ie: eggs whey diary etc.
    It does get expensive to eat good, especially organic and you are right, fish and eggs only go so far. I also do not think, I could ever give up my hot wings either.
    I get some stuff from Grassland Wellness Beef. They have no hormones, no nitrate, no antibiotic meats. It is not super cheap, but they ship in a few days and have some pretty good products.
    And congrats on your addition to family, DAD....!

    Thanks Paul.

  17. So it looks like I have a date with the lacrosse ball as I can't even bench my pec delt ties ins are so tight. I am afraid i am going to pull something. I have to get this worked out.

    Started warming up on the bench and scrapped it.

    landmine tbar rows 4x10 3plates
    band pushdowns 4x14
    band pullaparts 4x15
    chins 4x5
    face pulls into Y press 3x8

  18. So i figured i would start free squatting again. It has been 6.5 years since i did any free squatting, basically when i hurt my leg loading stones. I have terrible mobility in the hips. So i figure that will have to change so i can widen my stance (which will still not be wide by any stretch) and squat to depth. So i did some mobility work and then did many sets of 5 paused squats with 145. This was not pleasant at all, lol. finished off the workout with 4x12 wide stance kb two handed swings. So i guess we will see the reconstruction of a squat on here. Curious what everyone uses to film there lifting.

    6.5 years? Hot damn. Good luck easing into it again.

    And I just prop my phone up against something to take video and edit it with the iMovie app

  20. I use my tablet which has a stand, but when my friend films his own lifts he props his phone up against a kettlebell.

  21. Standing strict shoulder press 205x5 145 2x8

    chins 5x5

    side/front laterals 3 sets until it burned

    face fulls 3x12

    45 minutes of walking on the treadmill.

  22. Deadlifts 495x3

    Reverse Hypers 3 plates and 10's a side. 3x10

    landmine Tbar rows 3 plates and 10's 3x10


    Felt good today. Deads are progressing nicely. Grip needs to catch up though.

  23. A little beat from Monday. Normally i would bench today but since i am off the rest of the week, my home gym does not have squat bar. They do however have a comp bench.

    Worked my way up to 285x3 on squats. Depth was OK, not spectacular. I have some video of it but it is taking a while to email from my phone. I took some photos of where i train at lunch. Not bad for the office.

    I think did SS bar strict GM's with 95 lbs. I did 2x12 and hams were screaming so i stopped. I don't want to be cramping up tomorrow when i am stuffing my face. Bench on Friday and off to see Megadeth/Fear Factory. Name:  IMG_20131127_125200_436.jpg

    Fear Factory will be awesome!
