  1. Sinner's summer workout log


    Finals are FINALLY over, and it's the good ol' summertime. Celebrated my Grandma's 80th B-day this weekend, and pigged out on some Steak and delicious B-Day Cake. It was awesome, and totally worth me feeling like a fatass the day after. Anyhow, started up a new routine today. Decided to mix things up a li'l with some supersets and whatnot, and only lift 3x per week.

    Today was Legs and Shoulders:

    Superset Cleans/Upright Rows: 185*8/115*11
    DB Walking Lunges: 65*20
    Hamstring Curls: 60*8
    Rear Delt Raise*: 15*15
    Donkey Calf Raise (machine): 360*40
    Decline Crunches: 25*14

    *For rear delt raise, I'm sitting on a bench with my chest against my knees, and holding the weights at parallel for 1-2 counts.

    All in all a good workout to kick off my summer.

  3. Do you do warmup sets before rest/pause ?

    This reminds me of DC training.

    Up kinda early for being done with school eh ?

  4. damn yO... nice vids hehe, looking tight as always

  5. Curious how long did it take you to get the hang of the cross over jump? I have everything else down but can't seem to consistently get the X going in my routine. Any pointers?

  6. Do you do the chants I see the kids doing when they jump rope?

    I've been jumping for a few years now. Practice is the big thing. After long bouts, my shoulders would get stiff, and so I started to learn to criss-cross to keep loose.


    When learning how to do it.
    -Move at a slower tempo. Work on coordinating your arm movements in sync with your footwork.
    -Make sure to "snap" your wrists when crossing and uncrossing
    -DON'T THINK ABOUT IT!! I've been teaching the guy who filmed the vid's how to criss-cross. He's getting it, but he thinks too hard about it, eventually hesitates, and loses it.

  8. what's your opinion on chest exercises ? I've heard arguments from both sides saying that inner, outer, lower, etc and all angles need to be hit.

    I've also heard the argument that a chest exercise is a chest exercise and the pecs get stimulated no matter what.

  9. From personal experience with my new trainer I believe in hitting the different angles. When I just did chest exercises as a general I never got sore or saw much difference. With her I'm sore every week and I'm seeing different cuts and muscle pop up.

  10. I'm always down with a sinner log. What supps are you running currently?

  11. damn, those are some jump rope skills!

    thanks for making me realize i'm still in remedial jump rope class.

    Thanks man.

    Yea I only recently started (about 2 months maybe) and am getting the hang of it pretty quickly. I do agree I am over thinking a lot of the incorporation of the cross over instead of just letting it flow.

    So much more fun/focus inducing/intense than the ellipticals and other cardio stuff as well. Good stuff.

    Right now it's just Hyperdrol, MassFX, and a li'l 7-keto as I'm finishing up the tail end of my 3-AD PCT. I've only got a few days left, I think.

    Thanks man.

    I totally agree. I did cardio on a treadmill this morning and was ready to put a freaking bullet in my head. Stick with it. It's really fun and really great exercise.

    For best overall development, decline DB/Bench or dips.

    A lot of the pro's stick to inclines at different angles to give their chest a better shape.

    damn, those are some jump rope skills!

    I didn't really have a response to your post, but I didn't want you to feel left out.

  14. i'm just glad i was included.

  15. Awww thats so sweet Sinner!

  16. Back & Biceps today.

    DB Deadlift: 150's*8
    Barbell Row: 265*8
    Weighted Pullups: 70*9
    Incline DB Curls: 60*5+1
    Decline Crunches: 10*20

    Deads with DB's was interesting. Really gave me a deep stretch in the traps and upper back. I was surprised to see myself reach positive failure so early in the set (was expecting to hit the teens). Although, DB's seem to offer a larger range of motion. Felt like I was working muscles I hadn't worked in a while. Overall, I think I like it.

  17. i forget but when you do deads with dbs, do you touch the floor? and if so do you rest it for a second or keep moving?

    I touched the floor, but did not fully rest it on the ground. It was a nice change of pace from the usual deadlift with a straight bar.

  19. The deads with dumbells are nice. They definitely allow more stretching room.

  20. Legs and Shoulders today:

    Front Squat (to parallel): 245*10
    DB Walking Lunges: 65*22
    Arnold Press: 60*12
    DB Side Laterals: 30*11
    DB Shrugs: 85*12 100*12
    Seated Calf Raise: 135*??
    Dragon Flags: 20
