simpleton's journey to *****town
a little about me.
142 lbs. (i'm a small dude)
20 years old
alright, i started making this because i've been skipping workouts lately and frankly, that just wont cut it. i'm doing the Rippetoe routine(with a few modifications) and have had great progress so i'm going to keep doing it until i plateau, in which ill probably drop weight/add reps and then start all over again. ps. compound lifts are the ****, i heart them. ok on to the log
arms, grip work, abs
normal rippetoe only advises 1 set of deadlifts and no arms, but i've gotten used to deadlifting and the 2nd set helps kill my back, so i do it. numbers aren't very high, but i started off squatting 75 lbs. a few months ago so i think i'm making some progress.
i missed my workout yesterday, so i may end do another update tomorrow or thursday at the latest.

back like cooked crack. working + school last semester i barely had time to lift, much less do a log. my rents' gave me an option not to work this semester if i take more hours. so i have a little more free time. cha ching.
anyways i started with a ****ty little home gym. my friend who lives right down the road got a lot of nice things from his uncle and now i work out with him. olympic bars, dumbbells up to 100, squat rack, bench, lat rows, etc. its nice and really my first time doing the big lifts on an olympic bar.
my workouts are as follows;
Leg extensions 3x10
Leg curls 3x10
Tuesday: Chest and tri's
Incline Bench 3x8
Dumbbell Flies 3x10
Tricep extensions on the lat pulldown 3x10
Thursday: Back and bi's
Barbell rows 3x8
Lat pulldowns 3x10
some chins to failure
Dumbbell curls 3x10
Barbell curls 3x10
Friday: Calves and shoulders with traps

sitting calves, improsived on the leg ext, 3x no set reps
Barbell shoulder press 3x8
Dumbbell shoulder press 3x10
Front/lateral raises 3x15
dumbbell shrugs 3x10

using storm, a multi, ON whey, and relora as my supps. right now i'm 5'10 150 lbs. todays a day off so tmrw will be updated with workouts. time to eat!
01-14-2008 01:17 PM
alright, my first day workout of the week...legs. some people hate em but i love em. heres my sets
Squats 3x10 of 111
Leg extensions 3x10 of 77
Leg curls 3x10 of 40

numbers are weird because my friends plates are based on kg, with 22, 33, and 44 lb plates. have been using around 130 with squat but it was my first time in a cage with an olympic bar so i went a little lower, will probably add 20 lbs next time and keep reps lower.
was a good workout, got my ON/dextrose in fast pwo and went back to class. next update tmrw

leg extension 3x10 with 88
leg curl 1x10 with 44, 2x10 with 55

lunges to finish really help stretch my legs after leg day. i handled 126 on squat pretty easy so ill go with the big boy plates next time to make 133. leg extensions were good, i could probably go up. leg curl is good for now, 55 once i got to the higher reps got a little tough. all in all a good day! next update tonight

How's your diet? You seem to have good strength for your size, keep up the hard work mate.
01-25-2008 11:44 PM
thanks man. i read rippetoes before i started seriously training and ever since i've been an advocate of strict form. goes a long way imo

i didnt get to workout shoulders/calves tonight. ill hit them tomorrow morning.

finally got my shoulder workout in, glad i got it in today so that means i didnt miss a workout this week. here it was
laterals: 2x10 with 10's, 2x8 with 15's
military press: 3x6 with 80
arnold presses: 3x10 with 20lb dumbbells
front raises: 3x10 with 10's
barbell shrugs: 2x10 with 80
dumbbell shrugs: 3x10 with 35's
laterals and front raises are tough. i think i could move up to the 15's on the fronts but the laterals were killer.
i seemed to tweak my shoulder when military pressing though. i set it down and a deep ache set into my deltoid, when id clinch it by gripping something it'd bulge out, much moreso than my other. any ideas? not sure how many of you actually read this but if you can clue me in, itd be appreciated. im just going to ice it for the next 2 days and hopefully itll be good by chest day
01-29-2008 11:32 AM
