  5. Today was all about dedication. How dedicated am I? I asked myself this question all day. According to dictionary.com dedicated means wholly committed to something, as to an ideal, political cause, or personal goal. With that being said I was thinking about alot of things today that I may dedicate myself to. After much thought I decided the only logical answer of what to dedicate myself to was... myself.

    My day started off with me waking up at 10 planning on having my preworkout meal and then heading off to the gym. I noticed it was raining pretty hard outside but no big deal. My gym is only open until 1 on Sundays, it sucks I know. I finish my breakfast and plan on heading to the gym in about 30 minutes. My brother calls me to let me know that the creek at the end of our street, I'm on a dead end, has flooded and no cars can get through, this happens about 2-3 times a year no big deal. I could have skipped todays workout, it is a big leg day so lots of pain was in order. Instead I packed my bag, put on shorts and sandals, and walked accross about 40 feet length and 1.5 foot deep water with current to get to my brother's car which was stuck on the other side of the flood. He drove me to the gym and it was on. My workout was as follows:
    Legs (Quad focus), calves, abs
    Dynamic warmup 10 minutes
    Mountain set squat 315 1-8-1, these are done by doing 1 rep, racking weight, doing 2 reps, racking weight, so on and so forth from 1 rep to 8 reps and back down to 1 with 30 seconds rest maximum, these were killer took me 18 minutes 19 seconds, a new PR time
    Leg extension 1 platex40, 2 platesx30, 2 platesx20 with flex hold at top, last set caused my quads to cramp pretty well
    Lying alternating iso leg curl 10,8,6,4,2 25
    Leg press 10x10 continuous with 5 plates each side dropping 1 plate each set
    Seated calves 2 plates superset standing barbell calves 135 superset bench crunch superset bench supermans, 4 times throught circuit 20 reps each
    Bosu ball balance squat 15 seconds each position standing, 1/4, below parallel, just above parallel, 1/4, standing, standing left leg, standing right leg

    That was one tough workout, I kept thinking about how dedicated I wanted to be and got through it finished just before closing. I am overall impressed with this workout the volume was more than the westside but I think this will be a good change of pace, heavy chest with light back tomorrow. Now its time to eat.

  6. Yesterday was heavy chest light back
    Incline bench 2x12 225/225/235 2 min rest
    Flat DB swiss ball bench 3x8 100 slow reps

    Concentration curl 1x15 45, Kickbacks 1x15 30

    Overall the workouts went well. I have found my sweet spot with preworkout carbs and anabolic pump, I take my AP then 20 minutes later 1/2 cup oats with 2 tbsp natural maple syrup, 30 minutes later 1.5 scoops NOS blast with 1/2 scoop xtend. I have been getting some sick pumps, my chest yesterday looked jacked after the workout. My diet has been on point, I will get a weight again this weekend. I am still looking leaner, too bad I couldn't get a professional body fat measurement pre and post log, oh well, its about getting big, strong, and fast, not looking good right. I'm doing some bag agilities tonight, and tomorrow I might do some plyos depending on how my legs feel. Tomorrow is legs with hamstring focus.

  7. Today was Legs (hamstring focus), calves, abs 45-60 seconds rest
    Snap cleans with front squat from knees 5x5 45/45/55/55/55

    Seated DB calves 85 superset standing calf raise 100lbs plate each side superset with swiss ball med ball crunch superset with Hanging knee raise 4x20 continuous
    Deadlift 225x40 reps, this set was a killer, could have got a few more physically but mentally I was spent and fell over

  8. 40 reps of DL is crazy man. Were they touch n go or did you reset after each?

    I bet he's a skilled bouncer, like you.

    40 reps of 225 is crazy, I get tired

  10. Yesterday was heavy back, light chest 60 second rest

    Ab floor routine
    Side lying external rotation into t press 1x20 10, ok I made these up but they felt good and burned for a while after
    Overall a good last 2 days, I am feeling very pumped all day, I think the AP is really taking its full effect. I will try to get a weight on Sunday.

    The deadlifts were done with hold at top, full negative, and a full reset at bottom with overhand grip. It might have been one of the hardest things I've done in a while, especially at the end of the lift. My grip was already wasted for chest/back and today I was still feeling it a little. Off day tomorrow so time to eat, sleep, and recover. I will do a big full body stretch tonight and maybe a dynamic full body warmup tomorrow to aid recovery.

    Today was a quick and brutal leg workout. I had a hard time catching my breath on the the last two trisets. I picked 15lbs of dextrose today, I'm gonna use it for my pre and post workout shake along with 1/2 cup dry oats and some fruit for my carb intake, probably atleast 20-40g of dextrose. Overall I am feeling great, the switch to the body building split feels great, especially on my joints, one more week then back to westside. I weighed in at 212.4 today, so I am happy I am gaining. Looking as lean as I did about a week ago but a little fuller. I am going to up my running this week to agilities 1 day and bleacher plyos 1 day. Then probably next week I will add a sprint day as well. I was going to do strongman yesterday but it rained so that was postponed. I will try to get it done next week as well. Well time for another meal, chicken, brown rice, and brussel sprouts.

  12. Yesterday was heavy chest light back
    5x5 circuit slow reps Incline 225 superset DB bench 85 superset slight incline flies 55 superset slight incline press 55

    After work today I did 40 minutes of foot speed work and stair running. My diet has been on point these last few days and I'm feeling very energized because of it. Tomorrow is leg day again with hamstring focus so I'm gonna get a real good stretch in tonight. I hope the weather will cooperate so I can do some strongman work friday or thursday.

  13. Nice log!!

  14. Thanks crader

    Today went well, legs are feeling good and strong, ankle is still kinda sore and tight but all strength is back. I am going to do some speed work tomorrow after work, heavy back and light chest in the morning before. Tuesday I will return to my westside routine, I'm considering doing heavy shoulders, light arms, and strongman on friday as a combined workout... hmmm, it just might work.

  15. Damn, that's a lot to pack in one day. What type of strongman stuff are you doing? Do you compete or plan to in the future?

  16. Jas, I do not compete but possibly in the future, I just love the effort and mindset it takes to do strongman. I am going to do some wheel barrow push/pulls, sand bag carries, and I have 1/3 of a telephone pole that is heavy, real heavy, I plan on carrying and flipping, as well as a medium tire for speed flips. I am working on getting a tractor tire, hopefull in two weeks I can score one. I am going to set some weights up outside to do almost an obstacle course of strongman type events with the weights, or do the weights first then the strongman. Either way it should be a pretty gruelling day, or atleast I hope.

  17. Nice. A big part of strongman is just finding junk to train with, and it doesn't have to be pretty. Have you ever thought about making the telephone pole into a log for log pressing? I've always thought that it would work well. If you have some say in the tire size, I'd look for one in the 500-800 range. But a big part of the difficulty depends on how well you can grip the tread on the tire. I've done a 540 and 800 with about the same amount of effort because the tread was much easier to grab on the 800. It's great cardio! Maybe you know all this already so sorry if you do.

  18. 5-22-08 Heavy back, light chest 60 sec rest
    Pullups 4x10 superset BB row 4x10 185 superset 1 arm cable pulldown 4x12

    Kneeling rope pullover 2x20
    Machine bench 2x20 superset machine flies 2x20

    Workout went great, had a huge pump and felt strong. Jas, thanks for the advice on the tire, and I have thought about turning the log into a log press, I just have to figure out how to install some handles, one of my summer projects. I'm always open to new things so feel free to add comments. Ok tomorrow will be the big day, I'm gonna see how this shoulders, arms, and strongman goes. I am also going to see if I can get some video of some of the workout sessions up here within the next few weeks. Time for bed and then morning workout, everybody keep liftin heavy:clean:.

  19. 5-23-08 Shoulders, arms

    Wheel barrow carry up and down hill 2 sets there back with heavy rock and both tires in

    Today went over all well, some buddies got a large tire today so next week I should be able to get some flips in. Today was tough, very unorthodox and I loved it. I will try to incorporate more of these methods into my regular routine. I tried to squat the log, but could not get it onto my back in the proper position, I will try again next week. Time for a shake and then relaxing.

  20. Real nice workout Hateful. I like it. Alternative training styles just make things interesting as hell. And if you have some friends to make it a competition it becomes even more fun.

  21. 5-27-08 Max effort lower body 2 min rest

    Overall I good day, very tired after and still feeling wiped out this afternoon. Tomorrow is an offday so I might just get some cardio in after work, not sure yet I will see how my legs feel, good stretch session tonight as well.

  22. 5-29-08 Max effort upper
    Floor press 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x3, 335x2, 355x1 my wrist hurts and limited my pressing today, I think it is sore from the 1 arm DB pull throughs

    Not bad, I felt like I had alot more in me for presses but my wrist had a huge effect on the floor presses, it should be better in a few days though. Next week I will try to bump up the running adding a speed day. Diet has been much better since this last weekend, I weighed in today at 214.4, looking about as lean as I was last weigh in. I'm hoping to get to 220 and be really lean.
