Still not a blog (now with some pics)

#1 Postby Aaron » Mon Dec 31, 2007 11:53 pm

But every once in a while writing down where I'm at seems like a decent idea so -

(ps - numbers over form for me, so it may not look clean when I do it)

weight 175.5 (I vary between that and 180ish depending on how much I drink/eat over the weekend).

Dbell bench flat - 100x8 (finally got back up there and I'm about 30lbs less than last time I did it)
"" incline - 95x7
"" decline - same

dbell seated shoulder 75x10 90's so I can be pressing my high weight would be cool but I'm not sweating it a whole lot
dbell one arm upright pulls 75x9
dbell front raise 55x9

seated row 177.5 x 10 (x2)
pulls/chins 10 (x2)

run:
Tabor top loop (5.35 miles) 7:00x pace is the pr for now.

100x9 today.

White Zombie - More human than human.

Weight's the same but haven't run in 2.5 weeks because of a knee injury. Wonder if running was really helping me cut...

100x10

Still same weight.

Still sore knee.

Hopefully running again by march.

Maybe spend three weeks in hawaii for spring break if I can find housing. That'd be nice...

Also throwing the 4lb medicine ball x 20 for each arm and two handed. Throw seems to be improving in dball.

Nice! When my chest and shoulder heal completely, let's go press 100's like it ain't no thing!

Then we be stronger...

We be stronger then for sure.

I did 9,7,7 again today. I think Friday's seem to be my strong day since I get more rest during the week maybe? My form was weak too.

But I now have a two veins in my lower abs I can see. I think I'm losing bodyfat or retained water. Either way I'm happy :-)

Bum knee so no legs for a few weeks. At least it still bends to 90 and is walkable. Can't cut left/right or run fast or backwards at all though. A kid asked me if I was a fighter, I told him I just play a lot of dodgeball. Meanwhile now he's got me kicking around the idea of going to straight blast. And dude from SA at work was saying SA has some crime like woah. WC2008 got a tiny bit of stress now. Showed a few kids how to kill their abs too. I'm still not doing abs but I can still rip some twists. Using some flax oil recently on a pretty regular basis as a salad dressing. Good stuff. Liking the split workouts too. Although with the bummed knee it's hard to want give up the only solid physical activity I got going just because I'm trying to focus on one group.

Some recent workout:

183.5lb

100 x 12, 10, 8
100 x 7, 6 (knee's not helping this, need it to brace myself) did 8-8 here the other day - but less on the flat, it probably all works out

80 x 9, 5 (knee's a bug here too) did 8,8 the other day - dunno if that's better
85 x 9ea
160 x 10 (bless the machine)
60 x 8ea

+50 (bless the dip belt)
8 pullups bent grip
7 pullups straight grip
8 chins standard
7 chins close

+90 (made me smile)
5, 3 dips

192.5 x 10,10 close grip, wide grip machine row

45 x 11ea some bicep bs

100 x 7 behind the head

Now tossing the 6lb medicine ball. 20 overhand, 20 sidearm, 20 soccer, 20 left sidearm

The only good workout is the one you'll actually do. Everything else is nothing. Yeah buddy.

Some top numbers lately

105s flat x 9, 8, 4
105s incline x 4 (97's x 9 i think)
82s press x 8, 6 (or 6, 8 maybe)
82s standing pulls x 8ea
52s front raise x 8 ea
dip+70 x 10
pulls +50 x 8
chins +50 x 10
100s bench rows x 8 (used to be able to hit this to ten, if i slept more on the weekends and started eating more I bet it could go back up)
50s curls x 8ea
82s soccer press

as always, form isn't my strong point
good lifting music helps me by 20% or more
I'm now the owner of a Loprinzis shirt
I play indoor soccer

go me.

edit to add: yeah buddy.
