6-6-13 1hr 10 min
1 arm DB chest press 95.5 x4 > Hold
DB chest press 181x5 166x9 > Hold
Weighted dips +87.5x5 65x7 45x11 22.5x12
DB chest flyes 63 x7x6 > Hold
DB Push pres 96 x8x8 > ?

I ran out of time and energy and decided to drop my reverse pyramid DB push press and just do 96 2x8. I may drop them altogether or move them since I am pretty fried once I finish my chest.

The one arm chest press went smoothly for my stronger right side but I struggled on my left side using only one or two solid reps and the rest negatives. I suspect I have found an imbalance in the power band of my left arm when I get heavier and I will hold at 95.5 and continue to work on my stability and strength imbalance on the. I decided to do these to help me self spot myself on my heavier sets; they are a bit awkward but I'll stick with it for a few weeks and see how I do.

Everything else went nicely. Going to San Diego for a week tomorrow; I'll lift at my sisters apartment complex gym.

Nice work in here CY, and that's a good run considering the heat. I love the hot weather but I think I would struggle in that sort of temperature! Much on for the weekend?

Thanks man, but it sucked so freaking bad. Haha. I went home and took an ice cold shower.

Mom and I are down in San Diego for a week watching my sisters place while they go back East. We started yesterday in Hemet at the hibachi super buffet with a crap ton of stir fry veggies, spring rolls, and veggie sushi rolls. I think we're going to the beach in Coronado and for more sushi, to Chipotle, and for Vegan cupcakes. I guess we're also going to catch up with an good friend of ours, divamom from this board. That has me excited, I miss her.

I'm trying to fatten mom up, she's looking a bit thin to me. :lol: She lost so much weight becoming a quasi-Vegetarian.

I don't have any pets at my house, save for insane squirrels and coyotes, and a bunny with a messed up ear, so I love being around my sisters cats. :3

How's life with you man?

I must have looked hilarious in the gym with my screw driver tightening down my hose clamp on my Ollympic DB collars, with my taped up vibrams and weight vest, and my tatty weightlifting journal; grunting, groaning and yelling, sweating and cursing. I don't like gyms, I am not there to flirt or impress people and have a good time. Leave me alone and let me destroy my body so I can come back stronger.

I am excited to start moving forward on DB deads. I was able to experiment with the larger diameter 35# plates doing deads and was happy they did not smash my testicles at the top of the lift. I have decided to invest in 4x 35s, 4x collars, and some more flooring on my way back home to Idyllwild.

I can't lift my arms.

Well I weighed myself for the first time in...man who knows how long? I don't even follow my body weight, I use my physique and strength as a guide. But just for curiosity sake I did weigh myself totally fasted, midway through glycogen depletion. Well I weigh 147lbs. This makes sense as previously eating 4,000 kcal I was dying. I am a little guy and I need no more than 3,000kcal on average, which is kind of where I sit now. It's funny because changing my diet I actually seem to have more energy in the gym.

I always kind of wished I was a bigger guy when I was younger, standing in at 5'5 1/2 inches I am not that impressive, I don't think genetics wise I could ever get over 150lbs-155lbs. Women don't really fall over for a guy they can step on, or so I thought. I always kind of wished I had a stockier build but I have a petite bone structure. Back in my younger years I was pretty woeful.

That doesn't really matter though, does it? We all die, dust to dust ashes. Our energy is simply recycled back into the Universe so there is no point in fretting over petty physical attributes. You are who you are and what you do with what you've been given is more important what you've been given. If a person cares enough to trash you based on uncontrollable genetic features then perhaps it's best to avoid that person and let them deal with their issues. The truest people don't really care, at all, and neither should I.

It's fun knowing my true weight now. Now I can snicker and say I am lifting XYZ times my body weight. I've accepted I am a pint sized powerhouse.

I'll update when I take a nice walk today.

Well the info I have says the running trail here is 2.42 miles...problem is I ran that in 30 minutes flat, 2+ times. There's no way I ran nearly 4.75 miles in 30 minutes so, that would be a 6 1/2 minute mile, so I can only assume that information is wrong.

So I'll just say I ran for 30 minutes. *Shrug* Also trained abs.

Today I rest; just a bunch of walking around. Today is mom's day. I am taking her for Vegan cupcakes, a haircuit, and out to eat, I think we'll top it off with a visit to Torrey Pines.

I have been sleeping really well on 8-9 hrs of sleep since scaling back my diet. I'm only averaging 2,750kcal but I feel really amazing and strong. I tend to gravitate toward 3,000-3,100 on exercise days, and 2,400 to 2,700 on off days depending on if I run or not.
