Glen's training log (better than beelze's)
04-23-2006 05:48 PM
yeah man no problem ... they are a crazy exercise!
04-24-2006 02:51 PM
well today was a miserable workout .. my allergies are just out of control right now and i felt really wiped out .. probably shouldn't have lifted but whatever
DB preacher curls (reverse side)
50 - 10
60 - 6
squats (below parallel)
325 - 10
385 - 7 (spotted on last rep)
lying leg curls (weird plate loaded machine .. pretty much clinically dead at this point)
2 plates - 10
2 plates + 25 - 10
2 plates + 50 - 8
calves .. screw them i felt like a dog's ass
so as you can see it was a pretty sh*tty workout although i was pretty happy with my squat today
over and done with for the day

Hey man, I weigh the same amount as you and would give anything to put up those numbers you did today. For my accumulation week I am following nearly the same DC setup as you, with a few minor differences

Hey glen, have you been taking any methyl b12 for those allergies? Im not sure, but i thought that I read that Bio (mod) said that his allergies have been non-existent since starting his methyl b12. Just thought i would mention it, especially since IBE has their sale going on.

thanks for the kind words ktw i appreciate it
idunk - i've been taking 1000mcg of injectable b12 eod for a few days now .. i picked up some claritan .. man that's a wonder drug! .. i feel so much better though definitely not even close to 100%

sh*tty workout today .. i've got a sinus infection .. more on this in a minute
BB bench press
245 - 10
265 - 7
285 - 4
3 plates - 10
4 plates - 8
5 plates - 5
reverse grip close grip pulldowns
210 - 10
220 - 8
230 - 7 PR
115 - elbow went kaputt ... felt an incredibly sharp burning sting in my left elbow basically just dropped the bar to ivydude
that's it .. i'm officially done with skullcrushers .. screw them ... my elbow feels fine now and i don't really think i did any damage but it certainly hurt a ton and scared me for a few minutes
given that i nearly killed my elbow and i've got a sinus infection along with the fact that i feel i'm getting close to being overtrained i'm probably going to skip my workout friday ... i was already planning on taking next week off as my finals start then and i literally won't have time to lift .. the week after that i'll be in puerto rico so i can't lift then
so this log will be on a 2.5 week hiatus .. i haven't had a week off in a LONG time as i jumped straight into this training from WSB and i think the time off will do me really well (except that when i start back up i'll be "off" .. so that will likely be slightly disappointing)

hey glen, quick question, I cant find any info on eating carbs b4 bed, do you recommend it (of course them being low GI)? It would be with in my caloric requirements, i was just curious if i should work carbs into my first 5 meals and forgo them in the sixth, what do you think? Sorry to ask such a newb question in an advanced forum, but you def know what your doing so this is why i ask. Thx.

Enjoy the time off Glen.. Rest well deserved.
05-01-2006 12:10 PM
Hbs .. i think it depends a lot on your metabolism .. i personally don't do it even when bulking .. i just have protein and healthy fats before bed
if you are having trouble gaining weight it would probably help out .. to be honest i'm really not much of a diet guru .. i know how to eat for my body and i know how to put on muscle without a lot of fat and how to diet, but for me specifically .. you'll probably get a better answer posting this in a new thread in one of the diet forums .. sorry i can't be of more help
05-01-2006 01:25 PM
No you helped, game me your opinion. Gaining weight isnt too much of a problem for me, so i probly should refrain from the b4 bed carbs. Thx.
05-08-2006 06:10 PM
If this is the case [gaining weight comes easy], the rule of thumb is to avoid starchy carbs in the PM. In other words, all meals after lunch should consist of protein/fat/veggies. You could skip the veggies in your last meal.

I dunno about that, i think i can handle some low GI carbs up until like 4 hrs b4 bed.
05-08-2006 07:13 PM
everyone is different in terms of their response to carbs .. plenty of people eat carbs right up until bed and stay very lean
05-08-2006 07:28 PM
going crazy yet with 2.5 weeks off?
05-09-2006 01:17 PM
i REALLY enjoyed the first week off .. i feel a million times better and didn't even realize at the time how sh*tty i was feeling .. would LOVE to get back into the gym this week but i'm leaving tomorrow for Puerto Rico so i'm just gonna wait until next monday to get back it .. while on PCT though
