Even with pretty much no sleep for 36 hours I managed to up some things. I think the Vega Sport + Green Tea right before the workout helped a lot though.

Warm-up

Stretch

BB Squats:
135x12, 225x12, 285x12, 335x12 (last 4-5 werent all the way down, ouch)

DB Incline Bench: (accidentally did incline instead of flat, whoops)
35sx15, 50sx12, 60sx12, 70sx9 (one more rep than last time)

BB Bent Over Rows: (wide feet, underhand grip)
95x12, 115x12, 135x12, 175x8 (5 second pause) 175x3 (so 11 total)

DB Shrugs:
55sx12, 70sx12, 85sx12, 95sx12

Incline DB Fly's:
25sx12, 30sx12, 40sx12, 50sx12, 55sx11 (so close on this one but when i got all the way down, it would not budg

Walking Dumbell/Plate Lunges: (still sore from when I did these last time)
45 lb plate held overhead x 16 steps x 3 sets

45 pound dumbells in each hand (90 total) x 16 steps (sucked so much)

1900 jump ropes (exhaustinggggggggggggggggg)

I dont like the direction by body fat has gone. It read 14.9% today, but I guess that could be due to increased stress the last 2-3 days about moving and changing jobs as well as a very busy shift with no sleep.

Wow, I actually got 9 hours of sleep. I felt awesome going into this workout.

Warm up

Stretch

Bi/tri supersets (hammer curl first set 30s (60 total together) x 42 reps)

I really like burning out my arms from the start and struggling for the rest of the workout. They feel more pumped the whole time.

Bi/Tri negatives and holds

2000 jump ropes

Played basketball for an hour and a half. Went alright for the first hour but then started to get pretty severe knee pains on lateral movements after that. Dammit, I hoped this had gone away by now.

Oh yah, I forgot that I also did these during my workout earlier.

Calf Presses:
135x20, 225x20, 405x20, 585x15, 810x15

These also cause some discomfort in my knee joints on the last two sets. I really need to do just higher rep counts on lower weight on these because this may be part of the problem with my knees. I really enjoy seeing everyone in the gym look at me crazy when I do them though.

Fasted 16 hours. My calves and chest are crazy sore today still, but I need to go anyways. Other than that I feel pretty good besides walking crooked from those calf presses.

Resting HR after 4 bags of green tea (pre-workout): 46 bpm

Haha I feel awesome when I do those and then I get humbled when I do bench press. My chest is so weak in comparison to everything else. Going to have to really struggle.

Had a pretty good/frustrating workout today.

Romanian BB Deadlifts: (raw, no stuff, no gloves, no chalk, screw that shit)
135x12 (underhand), 155x12 (underhand), 195x12 (underhand), 235x12 (mixed grip, accidentally put more weight on the left side than on the right so this was very awkward and did not realize til the set was over why I was leaning to the left the whole time), 245x12 (mixed grip, 2 10 second rest pauses, just barely made it there)

Flat Barbell Bench: (decided to try barbell today since I had done dumbells for the last month, this was frustrating)
95x12, 135x12, 155x12, 175x9 (failed on 10), 175x10 (with 2 10 second rest pauses, failed on 11)

I really despise how weak I am on my chest workouts. Going to have to step this up a notch.

Bentover Dumbell Rows: (one in each hand, close stance)
30sx12, 45sx12, 65sx12, 75sx12 (had some kipping on last 4)

Incline Dumbell Fly's:
25sx12, 30sx12, 40sx12 (really slow and controlled on these today)

Circuited Walking Plate Lunges with Jumpropes. The format was 16 steps of walking lunges with a 45 lb plate held overhead then walk to jumprope and do 210 reps x 5 sets. After that I did 5 more sets of jumpropes as intervals.

This brought my total to 2100 jump ropes and 80 walking lunges today.

My calves were killing me today already so I barelyyyyyyyy made it through those jump ropes.

Good strength Matt, interesting mix of exercises as well!

How come it was a frustrating workout?

It was just frustrating because I was hoping I could have gotten 175 for 12 on my bench.

My lower body is so much stronger than my upper-body so I totally understand how you feel. I start off my week feeling like a tank with lower-body power and then, by the time shoulder day rolls around, my head is out of the clouds and I remember I have a lot of work ahead of me.

You'll get there, though, you've got enough determination, dedication, and consistency that all it's going to take is time and patience, both of which I'm pretty sure you're more than willing to put in.

Plus, mygod, those lunges and jump ropes. My legs are already tore up from deadlifting today and reading that just made them ache even more.

Yah it is just going to take some extra effort on my part. I literally dont think I can get off my couch right now. I sent you a friend request on bookface.

Confirmed. I don't really do much on there other than click the "like" button on random shit so look out for that.
