Beowulf's (insert witty title) Training Log

Elliptical: 30 min
Deficit: 420 (a sign that I should start observing the international smoking time again ) cals
Today was the last day of school I was busting my butt to get all my grading done, but this means a lot of pressure off and a hell of a lot more time to dedicate to training and nutrition. I have a busy summer ahead of me, but it is self-directed (for the most part).

Ubi, I don't even want to know why you like to see a jacked, half-naked, cartoon man when your lady is touching your wiener

I don't know the correct spelling of wiener, as I don't spend my time thinking about them. Note: I'm not judging you, UbiOriginally Posted by Ubiquitous

Day 1A: CHEST/SHOULDERS/TRIS/BACK WIDTH/BACK THICKNESS
BWx19 PR (I used to be able to do a ton of pullups, but I weighed 30-40lbs less)
Arnold Press (seated, simultaneous)
55x13 PR (last time I only got 8 total; I blasted right through to 10 before resting)
CG Seated Row
[email protected], 15
Cals Consumed: 2535
Cals Burned: 3338
GREAT WORKOUT! I went 5x5 for PRs. This was N/A before b/c my first time through the cycle of 3 workouts established the baseline.

trainng looks intense Beo and the PR (im assuming this tands for personal record..) are crazy.
I dont know if your saving this but I thought I would ask anyway. What are your current stats? I know your sig has your goals I was just wondering what you were at now?
06-21-2006, 09:56 PM
Currently 199lbs at approx. 12%bf. I don't think I'll quite hit the goal, but I'll get pretty close. I've been doing the calculation BV posted a while back, and it seems to come out a bit on the high side. I'd rather overestimate than underestimate. My abs are starting to show; that is a good sign.

I bumped my knee of the corner of my glass coffee table earlier (I blush to mention that I did it dancing around like a buffoon to make my lady laugh ) I have a lump, it hurts to bend it, and it cracks when I walk down stairs. I really hope this doesn't interfere :
****Thanks for the encouragement, boys. Every bit helps
Now if I could only get some sexy ladies to cheer me on instead of a bunch of large males

As an psychology expert, I'm convinced you don't actually care if the ladies cheer you on and you subconciously are turned on when beelzebub strokes your uhh 'id'Originally Posted by Beowulf

B-Day is in 2 weeks. There is no way I'll make the goal by then b/c I'm not gonna waste all the LBM I've gained in the last year just to get cut down by that day. I'll be at a conference in So. Cal all next week, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to hit the gym at all. I have no idea what sort of diet I'll be able to pull off next week, but I'll try. If nothing else, I'll try to make it a deloading week, and maybe hit up a couple of circuit training workouts on a crappy hotel nautilus.Originally Posted by OCCFan023
DAY 2A: BIS, CALVES, FOREARMS, ABS
[email protected], 11
Standing Calf Raise
DB/BB Wrist Curl
35x10 (wrist pain )
135x12 (w/BB...more wrist pain )
This is pissing me off. I need to find a forearm exercise that I can actually do without wrist pain : I should have listened to my parents and slowed the #$%^ down when I was younger.
*First time doing these in a long time. Just establishing a baseline.
Another good workout I rotate warmups so that I got all of this done in about 30min.

Observation: If DOMS is a decent indicator of sufficient microtrauma to induce growth, there is no question in my mind that 1 all out set w/RPs, etc is enough to cause DOMS. My legs are still sore from 3 days ago, and my upper body is in some serious pain right now from yesterday's workout.
Interestingly, my quads and tris have not really been sore. I shot 20mcg of IGF preworkout in each quad on leg day and each tri yesterday. I wonder if the IGF is at the root of this. I shot bis before today's workout, so we'll see tomorrow.

I hate to be a pain in the ass (not really) but....Originally Posted by Beowulf
could you elaborate on the rest pause concept. I was running a TUT program robbed from Glen and tweaked a bit. I recently changed it up some using the same split but using heavier weights and less TUT. Also incresed rest between sets from 60 seconds to ~3 minutes and increase weight each set to give me the desired rep ranges (8-10, 4-6, 2-4). I am trying to increase strength mainly and was thinking this rest pause may help with that? Especially while "on"? Just a thought.
06-23-2006, 12:18 AM
Rest / Pause doesn't have anything to do with TUT really, just a fatigue factor. Some people benifit from working their muscles harder, i.e. rest pause, and some people should just stick to straight sets because they don't recover as well.

Sorry Beo, I'll quit hijackin your thread. Reading it just got me thinkin is all. (That is a dangerous pastime for me)

Ask away, I could care less about hijacking.Originally Posted by bpmartyr
DC claims his entire regimen is geared toward strength and hypertrophy, so I would think that a RP would help in that dept. Considering your current state of "suspended animation", I can't imagine it hurting. Only thing is that I would not use RP in the 2-4 rep range. If you get 4 reps in the straight set, you might get 1 more, 2 if you're lucky. I'd say shoot for something you can get for at least 6-7 reps, take 10-15 breaths and you should get 2-4 more reps. Make sure you are very, very, very warm. RP is no joke :bb2:
BTW, looking pretty shredded in the avatar; will you be updating post-cycle.
06-23-2006, 10:42 AM
Thanks for the info bro. Perhaps I'll try the RP on my second set to squeeze out a bit more volume. I like the lower rep final set with a very slow neg on the last rep. Trying to get the fibers used to the heavier weight.Originally Posted by Beowulf
Avy pic was at the end of the USP/Scivation cut stack test and yeah, I was pretty lean. Not the case right now. Almost embarrasing going from showing abs to pudgin over the belt. I prolly throw up some update pics at the end of this run. I do plan on cutting in the second half though.

How are you doing Man? Any updates?

I've been away at a conference and didn't have any time for the gym. I just ran 30min every morning. Diet was mediocre at best, but I'll be back at it tomorrow :squat:

Resuming the Log...
I got back from a conference late Friday night, and was occupied Sat and Sunday (wedding), so I ended up having a 9 day layoff. I really hate layoffs. My diet wasn't terrible, but definitely shy of where it should have been
Nonetheless, I'm back at it and plan to crank for at least 7 consecutive weeks before another layoff. I figure I should have a deloading week before the chaos of the new school year begins.
Day 1C: QUADS/HAMS/ABS
This pissed me off. I got 365x4 for on my first time doing this workout. I do not respond well to layoffs, and I didn't have my **** together well enough to nail the layoff diet. Oh well, the conference was informative, and I got to know my new colleagues for next year.
450x20 (RP @ 13)
Swiss Ball Crunches
3 sets for as long as possible (didnt' count)
Elliptical: 45 min
