Weird, that's what I was going to name my next dog. Great minds think alike.

Also how beneficial do you think using Xtend has been?

We when adopted her I had all kinds of great male dog names picked out but zero female dog names. We ended up naming her after Diamond from Crime Mob - http://youtu.be/9saEpqhBP5M

To put it plain and simple I love Xtend. When I went from drinking 1 scoop a day to 3-4 during and after my workouts I noticed a huge difference in my recovery. It's a bummer that it is artificially sweetened but the fake sugar also keeps me from eating something stupid / delicious.

Props on the ink, props on the arsenal of shakes, and props on sticking with your training journal all month. Hope you continue with it. I am helping check them and you have definitely qualified for a prize package. Great work!

Day 49/84 - Week 7, Day 7
Back / Biceps

25 Minute Cardio before and after lifting
Twists (before and after lifting) - 150 Each Side (300 total) with an 18lb medicine ball

GIANT SET
Chin Ups
8x135 (assist)
10x135 (assist)
8x135 (assist)
6x135 (assist)

Cable Rows
10x70
15x90
15x100
15x120

Lat Pull Down
10x105
15x120
15x120
15x120

NOTES: My chin/pull ups have always been super weak. They have gotten better I can do a few unassisted but for several sets I have to do them assisted (which I hate).
Cable rows were pretty easy stuff. I really enjoy doing them to be honest.
Lat pull downs were tough since they were the last in my Giant Set.

Bent Over Barbell Rows
10x75
15x105
15x125
12x145
Notes: Added 10 pounds since the last time I did these. Wish I had brought my straps for the last set but powered through.

Hammer Curls
20x15
20x20
20x20
Notes: These always tear my biceps up in a good way.

EZ Bar Curls
10x40
15x50
12x60
12x70
Notes: Wanted to hit 80 on the last set but those hammer curls wouldn't let me. Felt good about the 70 either way.

Rope Cable Hammer Curls
20x30
20x30
20x40

Final Notes: Was kind of hoping the gym would be empty today because of the Super Bowl but there was a decent amount of people. Luckily the normal douchebags were not there so that made my life a bit easier. Wish I did not forget my headphones at home. The gym music has been so bad lately.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a day off but I am tired of days off right now so I am going to switch tomorrow and tuesday. Shoulders, Calves and abs tomorrow then a day off then a heavy legs day. Sounds good to me.
