I had a full day and then drove 90 minutes or so and met up with my sister and we went to the gym.

Trained with Julia last night and Tanya tonight. Pushed my shoulders really hard tonight. Straight bar overhead press, cable overhead press, machine overhead press, lateral raises, shrugs, and a few upper chest exercises.

Then sat in the steamroom and sauna and hot tub and gave meditation an effort. :) Learning to relax a bit.

Always lots to do....off to Dallas, TX next and then Canada and then moving to LA in a few weeks.

Yeah Buddy. Moving all day tomorrow with my sister and Lean and Green and a few others. I've already moved, but now she is moving and we're helping her out.

Check out my girlfriend's blog....she rocks!

http://lemonletter.blogspot.com/2009/02 ... othie.html is an article I should read while I'm bulking up to handle upset stomachs!

Today I trained chest and we hammered it pretty well!

Aaron, xedvx, CountAgranoff, xdarthveganx, and I were all there....perhaps others too. vivalasvegans was likely around somewhere too.

Ed, David and I hit our chest pretty hard. I was pressing 100's for incline today after some partial reps on bench. Then we hit up some cables and then some negatives using a machine maxing it out.

A number of free weight exercises and some heavy machines and cables and it was a really good and intense workout that I'm pleased with. I ate afterward and now it's time for me to eat again.

I may also run over and see Lean and Green and thendanisays too. Saw bvp663 last night which was cool.

Forum members are all over this town..I'll miss Portland when I leave for LA in a few weeks but I know how much LA rocks for me and I'll love it there, as usual!

When will you ever post that you use the hack squat machine? I swear I used to look over your journal multiple times daily before Phoenix and not once did my legs look as HUGE as yours by just using the leg extention machine.

Keep at it buddy

Legs are probably my best muscle group...not super big but have striations in them year-round, including now.

I do use the hack squat but haven't in a few weeks.

Right now my focus is heavy leg presses, lunges, and just recently started putting hamstring curls and leg extensions in the mix. I've been doing some squat variations lately but still haven't attempted full squats because of my back issues and the emergencies I had last year when I was left unable to walk and had to see a doctor 5 times before getting on stage.

Off to the gym soon for some arms and shoulders, maybe a bit of abs.

Sorry I haven't been posting weights much....using some good weights, especially for chest, but life is all over the place, gearing up to move and only in town 3 more weekends...one weekend in Texas, another in Canada, another one with my family for holidays, then I'm outta here. So much to do.........

YB!

Go Beavers!

I had a good shoulder workout yesterday and an awesome chest workout today!

I've actually been thinking for a little while now that shoulders are my NEW favorite muscle group to train. It's interesting because they used to be probably my least favorite muscle group to train :) So it's pretty awesome that I enjoy them big time now!

Doing overhead presses is just so much fun. I love the "feel" of it so I spend a lot of time doing it. I did overhead barbell presses, dumbbell lateral and front raises, hammer strength overhead presses, heavy shrugs for lots of set and even more presses :)

Today I showed up and rocked chest. I've been doing a lot of free weight chest movements like the 100 lb in each hand incline presses 5 days ago or so, but today I was just training on my own and felt like doing a lot of upper chest work and felt like using a lot of hammer strength machines, so I did.

I did hammer strength bench press (while watching on TV Alabama whip Florida) and then incline Hammer Strength presses and peck-deck machines, cables both up top and on bottom, and then some dips at the end. I did some push-ups to get going too.

It was about an hour and 5 minutes and the shoulder workout was about an hour long.

I've been there a lot lately, haven't missed many workouts at all but I think I'll take Sunday off. My muscles are all pretty sore. I guess my back or legs could be ready soon but I want that day of rest before hitting it hard Monday and Tuesday.

Then I fly to Dallas, TX on wed morning and spend all day traveling (cheaper to have a stop than direct flight) and then I'll find a place to train in the big D while I'm there.

I've had at least 4 Vega Vibrancy bars today :)

Back to work....

Im getting inspired after reading your journal and keeping up with everyone else's journals too.

Quick question: What were the Vega chocolate bars I had in Boston called? They werent like the vibrance bars but more of a chocolate bar... and had a golden wrapper underneath the brown/black one.

I know those would sell here so just lemme know. k dawg?

Thanks man!

I'm getting re-inspired too...not just for a book tour, but in general...back at my old gym where it all started for me at age 14 picking up weights weighing 89 pounds :)

MacaSure Chocolate bar:

See ya!

Stay Pumped!

Today's focus was Power Cleans and some pyramid bicep curls.

Good times, and good to do more power movements, explosive moments and attack the whole body. It was a good day after taking Sunday off. I've still been very consistent and I feel like I'm in pretty good shape. I just need to get more food in to support my gains in the gym.

Tomorrow I am training with Big Ed for the forum (the super shredded guy who won the back contest). He and I will do some HIT training with back and arms.

Looking forward to it!

More food now, then work, then bed.

YB!

I trained back and triceps with a couple of other forum members. I saw a bunch of forum members the past two days.

That will be one thing I'll miss about Portland...then again, I think there were 2 Portland forum members when I moved here and now we have 50 so I think I'll find new people in LA and bring them to the forum and spend time training with them and it will be cool.

Lots of heavy rows today. I even had 8 plates on a machine for back rows, 4 plates on each side. So we got some good rowing and pulling movements and then some extensions and presses.

I fly to Texas in the morning....I better go.

RC
