Montana Workout Log v2

#1 Postby MontanaVegan » Sun Dec 10, 2006 12:59 pm

I've been lazy in working out for over a month, time to get at it again.
This time around more compound exercises and less isolated.
I will also be adding squats and deadlifts. I rarely did them before.

I'm still using the same bench at home, no gym membership yet.
As always, advice is appreciated.

Monday : Dec 11
I was going to use today as a rest day.
But I just started squatting last week and really wanted to squat again.

60 reps with just the 45# bar. This workout wasn't to failure.
My first squat workout was 52 reps and bigtime failure.
My goal is 100 reps.
Then I'll start adding weight and do fewer reps
Working my way down to where I can only do 50 reps

I don't have a squat rack so have no way of safely doing heavy weights.

Wednesday : Dec 13 - Push Day
I overslept and didn't have much time this morning
Today I rotated through each exercise with almost no rest.
It shows as my reps kept dropping

Warmup on Bench Press: 40#x10, 80#x10, 135#x10
BB Bench Press: 185# x8
BB Military Press: 70# 10
BB Tricep Ext: 70# 6

BB Bench Press: 185# x6
BB Military Press: 70# x9
BB Tricep Ext: 70# x5

BB Bench Press: 185# x5
BB Military Press: 70# x7
BB Tricep Ext: 70# x4

I haven't done military presses or tricep extensions in quite a while
I'm amazed at how quickly you lose strenght when you don't work out.

Friday, Dec 15 - Off Day
I was still a little sore from exercises that I haven't done in a while.

Saturday, Dec 16 - Push Day and Lower Body Day

BB Bench Press 185# x8,6,5
BB Military Press 70# x10,10,10
BB Tricep Extension 70# x10,8,6

Crunch 0# x10,10,10
DB Side Bend 40# x10,10,10

No leg workout this morning, I'm going to climb my hill
Squats tonight, going for 70 reps

Now that I'm doing Military Presses and Triceps again, my bench is dropping.
I suppose that's a good thing, working the supporting muscles a little harder.
My benching did hit a flat spot a while ago.
Eventually this should help my bench numbers.

Saturday Night, Dec 16th - squat
I got 70 reps tonight. Using only the bar as weight - 45#
The last 2 were tough, probably didn't have many left in me.

Next time I'll go for 80 reps. Tuesday or Wednesday night.
My goal is still 100 reps with just the bar.

Wednesday Evening, Dec 20
I started to squat tonight.
I found out my legs were sore and didn't know it until I squated.
I did ten squats and figured I needed more time to recover.
So I'll try them Friday night.
Going for 80 reps with just the 45# bar.

Thursday, Dec 21
Stayed up late Wednesday night so I took today as a rest day.

Saturday Evening, Dec 23

Squat Night.
My goal tonight was 80 reps with just the 45 pound bar on my shoulders.
I made it all the way to 100
Now I can start adding weight to the bar.

Sunday, Dec 24 - Push Day

Bench Press: 185# x6
Tricep Ext: 70# x8
Military Press: 70# x15

Very weak Bench again today.
My bench has been getting worse lately.
Maybe last night's 100 rep squat has something to do with it.
Anyway, I'll try it again when I get from Mom's for Christmas.

Wednesday, Dec 27 - Push Day

* Bench Press: 175# x9,7,5
Tricep Ext: 70# x9,8,8
Military Press: 70# x12,12,16

*I used less weight today than last time
Not happy with my regression on the bench.
I am happy that the other 2 are improving.
Stronger triceps and shoulders can only help the bench.
Gotta start using more weight on the Military Press.
