I decided that since I'm logging my wife's workouts on here, I might as well log my own. I'm not repping any products or supplements, just tracking my own workouts.

First, a little about my stats: I'm 5'11'' and about 194lbs. I got up as high as 225lbs, but recently cut for a BB show in July. I'd like to stay around this same weight and at about the same BF%, which is currently about 9%.

I guess I"ll start with yesterdays chest/bi's day.

Had a decent back /tri's day today. Back day used to be my least favorite day as I used to do back and bi's on the same day. Since I've switched it to back and tri's I've found I enjoy this workout a lot more. I threw in a mini-drop set and an all out drop set on a couple of sets. Diet was pretty decent today also.

Well here goes:

Exercise 1
DB lawn mowers superset with DB tricep kickbacks (4 sets)


1. DB lawn mowers: 70x12/kickbacks: 30x12
2. DB lawn mowers: 80x12/kickbacks: 35x12
3. DB lawn mowers: 90x12/kickbacks: 40x12
4. DB lawn mowers: 100x12/kickbacks: 45x12

Exercise 2
Bent over barbell rows superset with close grip bench press (4 sets, 4th set is a mini-drop set)


1. barbell rows: 135x14/close grip bench: 135x14
2. barbell rows: 185x14/close grip bench: 185x14
3. barbell rows: 225x8/close grip bench: 225x8
4. barbell rows: 225x6, 135x12/close grip bench: 225x4/135x12

Exercise 3
T-bar rows superset with elevated weighted bench dips (4th set is a superset)


1. T-bars: 135x15/weighted dips: 35lbx20
2. T-bars: 180x12/weighted dips: 70x20
3. T-bars: 225x6/weighted dips: 105x20
4. (drop set superset)T-bars: 225x4,180x4,135x6,90x8/ weighted dips: 140x12,105x10,70x4,35x6 (I went straight from the t-bar drop set into the dips drop set)

Exercise 4
One arm hammer strength seated rows superset with standing cable tricep extensions (cambered bar)(4 sets)


1. seated rows: 135x12/cable tricep extensions: 160x16
2. seated rows: 155x10/cable tricep extensions: 170x14
3. seated rows: 185x8/cable tricep extensions: 190x12
4. seated rows: 185x8/cable tricep extensions: 200x12

Exercise 5
V-grip lat pulldowns superset with over head cable tricep extensions (4 sets)


1. v-grip pulldowns: 160x12/overhead extensions: 150x16
2. v-grip pulldowns: 170x9/overhead extensions: 160x14
3. v-grip pulldowns: 190x8/overhead extensions: 170x14
4. v-grip pulldowns: 210x8/overhead extensions: 180x14

On a side note, my form got a little sloppy on the last set of those v-grip pulldowns. I noticed myself leaning back a bit too far. By the time I got to the pulldowns, I was fairly wrecked, so I was ok with a little sloppy form at the end.

Here's this afternoon's deadlift/shoulders day. On a side note, I really don't care for deads but they are such a good exercise I still do them.

Exercise 1
Deadlifts superset with DB shrugs (4 sets and one bloody shin)


1. Deads: 135x20/DB shrugs: 90sx20
2. Deads: 225x12/DB shrugs: 100sx18
3. Deads: 315x5/DB shrugs: 110sx14
4. Deads: 315x5/DB shrugs: 120sx14

Exercise 2
Seated DB shoulder press (4 sets)


1. 65sx14
2. 75sx10
3. 85sx8
4. 90sx6

Exercise 3
seated barbell military press superset with standing barbell military press (4 sets) *side note: I don't go very heavy on the standing presses as I've been prone to some upper back problems when going heavy on that one.


1. seated press: 135x14/standing press: 95x12
2. seated press: 155x9/standing press: 95x12
3. seated press: 185x5/standing press: 95x12
4. seated press: 135x12/standing press: 95x9

*I'd like to find a better exercise to superset with the seated press. Or, perhaps I just won't superset with that one because it's a tough superset and I'm not convinced it's beneficial to superset with it.

Excercise 4
standing DB lateral raises superset with bent over DB lateral raises


1. standing laterals: 20sx12/bent over laterals: 20sx12
2. standing laterals: 25sx10/bent over laterals: 25sx10
3. standing laterals: 30sx10/bent over laterals: 30sx10
4. standing laterals: 35sx8/bent over laterals: 30sx8

Exercise 5
Barbell upright rows (4 sets)


1. 95x14
2. 115x12
3. 135x8
4. 135x6/95x12

Overall another good workout. Tomorrow I'm at the fire department for 24 hours. I"ll do a cross-fit style workout while I'm there. The plan is to do twenty sets for time. One set consists of 8 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, 25 crunches and 15 leg raises going straight from one exercise to the other. I haven't done this one for time before, but I want to get a baseline so that I can improve on it. I'll also do some sprints in the morning before work.

Yesterday was a shift day at the fire dept. I did get in some sprints in the morning and a bodyweight workout in the afternoon.

For sprints I did 40yds x 20 sprints.


In the afternoon we did the workout I mentioned earlier. We did 20 total sets. One set consisted of 8 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, 25 crunches and 15 leg raises. I did all 20 sets for time with very few breaks in between. In all it took me 37:45 to finish all 20 sets. That was the first time I timed it, so now when I do that one again I can try to beat it.

This evening is leg day at the gym. I may skip the sprint work this morning because it is pouring outside. (remnants of Fay soaking Atlanta)

The sun came out for a while around lunch time, so I got some sprint work in. This evening was leg day.

Exercise 1
Squats superset with one-leg leg press (5 sets)


1. squats: 135x12/one-leg leg press: 90 each leg x 14

5. squats: 315x10/one-leg leg press: 90 each x 14

I stay pretty light on the one-leg leg press. I do those more to try to bring up an imbalance between my right and left quads from a couple of knee surgeries. I do the same thing on my single-leg leg extensions in the next exercise.

Exercise 2
Seated single leg leg extensions superset with seated leg curls (4 sets)


1. leg curls: 90x16/leg extensions: 70 each leg x 12
2. leg curls: 100x14/leg extensions: 70 each leg x 12
3. leg curls: 120x12/leg extensions: 70 each leg x 12
4. leg curls: 140x12/leg extensions: 70 each leg x 12

Exercise 3

1. leg press: 220x20/calf raises: 220x30
2. leg press: 260x20/calf raises: 260x30
3. leg press: 280x20/calf raises: 280x30
4. leg press: 320x20/calf raises: 320x30

Exercise 4
Lying leg curls superset with standing calf raises (4 sets)


1. leg curls: 90x16/calf raises: 165x20
2. leg curls: 105x14/calf raises: 165x20
3. leg curls: 120x10/calf raises: 165x20
4. leg curls: 135x8/calf raises: 165x20

That's it for legs day. Tomorrow is chest and bi's with some morning sprints again.

Did some sprint work this morning, but took it a little easy. My knees were giving me some problems today.

1/4 mile warm up jog
50ydx14 sprints

This afternoon was chest/bi's day. I had a good workout, but I couldn't work out with my partner (wife) so I didn't do a few of the forced reps I might have otherwise done. I still felt pretty good.

Exercise 1
Flat bench DB bench press superset with standing DB curls (4 sets)

Did a mini drop-set on the fourth set
1. DB bench: 100sx11/DB curls: 30sx12
2. DB bench: 110sx10/DB curls: 40sx10
3. DB bench: 120sx8/DB curls: 50sx8
4. DB bench: 130sx4,100sx7/DB curls: 55sx6,30sx8

Exercise 2
bench press superset with seated incline DB curls (4 sets)


1. bench: 275x3 (didn't want to push my luck with no spotter)/seated incline curls: 40sx10
2. bench: 255x5/seated incline curls: 50sx9
3. bench: 235x8/seated incline curls: 60sx6
4. bench: 225x11/seated incline cursl 55sx8

Exercise 3
incline DB bench press superset with standing cable preacher curls (4 sets)


1. incline DB bench: 110sx6/standing preachers: 120x13

3. incline DB bench: 105sx7/standing preachers: 140x8
4. incline DB bench: 100sx6/standing preachers: 150x8

Exercise 4
incline bench press superset with hammer curls (4 sets)


1. incline bench: 185x10/hammers: 50sx12
2. incline bench: 185x9/hammers: 60sx12
3. incline bench: 185x9/hammers: 70sx10
4. incline bench: 185x8/hammers: 80sx8

That's it for this one. Tomorrow's a fire dept. day and I don't think I'm going to do any kind of working out tomorrow. Who am I kidding? I'll probably do some sprints or something. I have such a hard time taking a day off.

Overall another decent workout. I had a hard time maintaining motivation throughout and I moved a little slower than normal, but I did either more weight or more reps and sometimes both on exercises compared to my last back/tri's day. My diet could have been better. It's my b-day so I had some pizza, and coke tonight.

Went a little heavier than last time. Still had a little lack of motivation. That's two workouts in a row where I got started and then really didn't feel like being there. I may need some time off, but I have such a hard time forcing myself to take the time off. Tomorrow's a fire dept. day and I'm supposed to do the big 20 set cross fit type w/o tomorrow.....we'll see.

Yesterday was a fire dept. day. I didn't do any sprints, but I did get a workout in.

I did 20 sets of pull-ups, push-ups, crunches, and leg raises.

8 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, 25 crunches, and 15 leg raises constituted one set. Last time I did this one at the fire station I timed it. I really didn't feel like doing that this time although I still took very little rest between sets.

Today I'll do some sprints before doing my leg day at the gym.

Thanks, bro.

You're gators looked pretty strong Sat. I expected that kind of a beat down in that game though. Even a worse Hawaii team than last year. I didn't get to watch that one as I was at the gym during most of it. Overall, the SEC had a good opening week. I wasn't expected that Alabama game to turn out like it did. It'll be interesting to see if UGA keeps number 1 this week. I expect them to fall a spot or two as they really didn't run up the score like some other teams. (USC who kept Sanchez in the whole game) UGA went second string in the second quarter and still went up 38-0. I hate we lost that defensive player for the season. Should have the talent stepping in for him, but he was a leader on the field.

Amy's pretty sick today so I may be without my partner for tomorrow's chest/bi's day. We'll see. I'm gonna try to convince her NOT to workout and rest instead.

Overall, had a pretty good workout today. Still making some progress. Overall, I'm down in my weights since cutting for the BB show I did in July, but I'm making my way back up to what I was lifting before while probably keeping better form than I was using before. I still miss my spotter. I could have put out a few more reps on some of my heavy set, but without a spotter I didn't feel like pushing it.

Still trying to get over this case of strep. Tomorrow's a fire dept. day, so I'll probably get back in the gym on Sun.

Finally getting over this crap I've had. Tomorrow's a fire dept. day for me and I'll probably do a light workout there. Wed. will be my first full workout back in the gym. It'll be a back/tri's day.

Finally made it back in the gym today. Did a light back/tri's day. I didn't keep up with the amount lifted as this was my first day back in about 6 days. Tomorrow will be a deadlift/shoulders day.

Getting close to 100%. Did some sprints this morning:

1/4 mile warm up jog
50yd x 7
100yd x 3

This afternoon at the gym did deadlifts and shoulders. Didn't go heavy, just some more light stuff. Tomorrow at the fire station will be sprints and my 20 sets of push-ups, pull-ups, crunches and leg raises. If everything goes good then I'll be back to my heavy stuff in time for legs day on Sat.

yesterday at the fire station I did some sprints (40yd x 20 sprints) in the morning and in the afternoon did my twenty set workout. 1 set equals 8 pulls ups, 20 push-ups, 25 crunches, and 15 leg raises..

This morning did some sprint work with my wife:

1/4 mile jog x 2, 1 set of suicides, and 8 40yd sprints.

This afternoon will be leg day. I'm pretty much over all the junk I've had so I"ll log my weights. Hopefully hasn't fallen off too much.

Took the boys to the park this evening and while they played I did a few sprints: 10 x 60 yd.


Felt pretty strong starting out, but ran out of gas a little toward the end. I can chalk that up to the week I took off. Overall though, my weights were up just a tad. I've decided it took me so long to get over the crap I had because I haven't been taking enough time off. As hard as it is for me to do mentally, I've got to add more off days into my routine. That being said, tomorrow will be a complete off day for me. I"ll be at the fire dept. anyway, so if shouldnt' be too hard.
