    So here's the pic of Mace and Me from Saturday. Now you can't complain that you never see any pics of me. I'm not really that big, just have an athletic looking build, and I can live with that....I guess....for now at least.



    Faces were editted to protect the innocent. Or at least Macedaddy's was. I always look like that.

    Shoulders

    Snatches: 135 for 5 singles (held at the top for a few seconds)
    DB Military Press: 75*8
    DB Side Lateral Raise: 30*6
    DB Rear Delt Raise: 20*11
    Leg Press Calf Raise: 600*12
    Barbell Wrist Curls to the Front: 135*15
    Russian Twist: 35*16

    Snatch form is definitely improving. I've got the catches down pat. Now I just gotta work on maintaining my balance when I pop up to finish the lift

    How are you doing the rear delt raises? (seated, bent over, cable, laying down on an incline, etc.)

    Good Q.

    I sit down and bent over forward (chest against my knees) using dumbbells. I try to hold it at the top with this move, since this is where the majority of the 'work' is happening.

    Ah, ever give the other ways a chance? I like reverse flyes on a machine for heavy weight with a slow release and ~15-20lb dbs for pauses how you do them, or laying face down on an incline. Good setup so far, lovin the log. and blowjob can't read directions! lol

    I've tried pretty much every variation of rear delt raises there is. I like these because they're don't require high traffice equipment (like reverse pec deck), don't allow for "cheat reps", and they're quite humbling.

    But who knows, I might switch it up in a few months. Was doing reverse pec decks over the summer.

    Wasn't planning on it.

    I really wanna go to the Monster Mash in Oxford, but probably won't. School and work come first.

    BTW, I got a parttime job as a QC chemist for an electroplating manufacturer (should be a nice break from the automotive industry). If the other guy can make it there to train me, I start today.

    "Cardy-ho!"

    Thought I would run 800's this morning instead of the usual treadmill routine. LOL, it's been a while since I've run an 800, and yeah, my speed had gone up and my endurance down. The track is 6 laps to a mile. I ended up sprinting 1 lap, rest/walk, 3 laps (800), rest/walk, 1 lap.


    Afterwards, jumped dat dere rope...for about 20-25 minutes......then it broke! I hate it when that happens, but it's nothing a paperclip won't fix.

    No, these are done bilaterally. It's pretty much the same as barbell rows, except I can get a much deeper stretch. I'll go all the way down until the dumbells just barely touch the ground. It really works the rhomboids like you wouldn't believe.


    This guy has piss poor form, but this is how the exercise looks:

    Do you do those in a squat rack with the bars pushed low or do you do these out in the open?

    Impressive lifts for your bodyweight bro, I'm down to 193!

    I do in the squat rack with the pins taken out. First rep entails a partial deadlift.

    I'm surprisingly light for my size. Some girl saw my weight when I jumped on the scale today, and said "holy crap, you're only in the 180's?!"

    lol I would have been offended hehehe!

    Do you just go down arm's length or do you hunch a bit to get lower and then shoot back up, or you doing these at a 90 degree bent over angle or slightly elevated and working your traps as well???

    I hunch a bit at the bottom. When my arms are fully extended, I relax my should blades, lowering the weight a little more. I usually hold it at the bottom of this and stretch for a count of 1 or 2 (because it's better'n sex). Explosively shoot up with the weight. I try to pull the DB's through my chest and slowly release them down to the stretched position again.

    I tend to bend over more with the DB rows than with the barbells. Barbell rows I'm bent over slightly, so that the bar will stop into my belly button at full contraction. Barbell rows do a lot of the trap work for me. Better upper back exercise than shrugs by a mile, IMHO.

    Boobs and "Grandma Arms"

    Weighted Dips: 145*5
    Incline DB Press: 100*9
    DB Pullovers: 100*12 (what up now?!)
    Reverse Grip Close Grip Bench (RGCG): 165*12
    Leg Press Calf Raise: 600*13
    Wrist Curls to the Front: 135*12
    Decline Russian Twist: 45*10

    It's funny, I saw a bunch of people implementing my infamous RGCG's into their workouts this week. I like to think of myself as a trendsetter, but really they probably got it from BB.com or something

    Lol, I have grandma arms as much as I have boobs.

    I was in a funny mood this morning, and decided to post the "bad and out of shape terms" for the body parts.

    Boobs = Chest
    Grandma Arms = Triceps ("grandma arms" is a slang term for when you store a lot of bodyfat over the tricep, commonly happens with older women.)

    I'm sorry if I offended anybody. I'm just being a goof.

    Make sure you have a spotter to help you get the weight off. It's really hard getting the weight up and situated over your chest to get started.

    Some tips for "feeling it":
    -Take it nice and easy.
    -Go all the way down. Because your chest is almost completely taken out of the motion, you will get a lot more tricep action as you go below parallel (which is not the case with the conventional, protonated grip).
    -The bar shoud touch the upper part of your chest. This allows for a greater ROM for your tricep muscle, not to mention tons more torque being applied to the triceps muscles (and less on your front deltoid) as you bring the bar lower to the bottom of the motion.

    Weekend Update with Kevin Nealon

    Saturday & Sunday

    Well, Friday afternoon, I strained my knee when the chain unexpectedly popped off the sprocket as I was riding my bike home from class, causing me to bump it on the handle bars. Knee swelled up to the size of a grapefruit. All weekend cardio fun was cancelled. I am instead practicing the WIRED technique for getting the swelling down so I will be good to squat (hopefully) tomorrow.

    Wrap- wrap in an ACE bandage
    Ice- keep cold to reduce swelling
    Rest- stay off it to promote recovery
    Elevate- keep knee elevated to reduce swelling
    Drug- Advil is your friend

    I'm thesinner, and that's news to me.
