4x205
2x225

Barbel Bent Over Rows -
10x45
8x95
6x135
3x185 really sloppy, too heavy

Remainder of workout was with no rest between sets.

Seated Cable Row - 6x200
Tricep Press Down - 6x130
Barbell Bicep Curls - 6x100
Dumbel Hammer Curls - 8x40 each
Dips - 20xbodyweight - very low, perfect form. :D
Hanging Knee Raises - 15
Crunches - 30

true true. but i am 21 and as strong as you so just think how strong ill be at 30!!!

i do plan to live until i am 100 but the odds are in a way stacked against me.

*tall people dont live as long as short people, maybe because:

*studies have shown that the more calories you eat over the course of your life, the earlier you will die. this owing to the fact that the internal organs have to work harder.

so with me being monstrously tall, and bulking, im buggered! :?

Hah! I must say I like it though! Carrying around an extra 10 pounds of fat just makes some things harder. Good news for you is that it makes deadlifting easier, so enjoy your up and coming belly. :P

I think your pb was more like 30,000 pounds. :shock: Those were the days. Oh to be young again, like we were 12 months ago. :lol:

Holding steady at 231 bodyweight.

Started out with a set of pull-ups, 5 reps with chest all the way to the bar. :shock: I'm loving this aspect of my lower bodyweight. Most of my life I have been abled to do one or no pull-ups and that just with chin over bar. Fun stuff!

Barbell Shoulder Press -
8x95 pounds
6x115
4x135

Deadlifts -
8x135 pounds
6x225
4x295
1x345 Okay, not loving this aspect of my lighter bodyweight. This was heavy and I failed at a second rep. :(

Barbell Curls -
5x70 pounds
5x80
5x90
5x100
2x110
1x120

Two words! Tired and weak! No further description of today's workout is needed. :(

Okay, I'll describe it anyway. :twisted:

First I'll provide my excuse for my sorry workout. :lol: I've had about 12 hours sleep total this week. :roll:

Bodyweight 235! :? Up four pounds in two days? Weird, but then I have had some super fantastic meals prepared for me this week. :D

Last night's dinner was:

Quesadillas with black beans, spinach and vegan cheese, fresh guacamole, vegan sour cream, fire roasted salsa, blue corn chips and Corona with fresh lime to wash it down! YUM!

Oh yeah, weight lifting, that's what this log is about. :oops:

Barbell Bench Press -
10x135 pounds
8x185
3x3x205
6x185

Dips - 2x10xbodyweight
Hanging Leg Raises - 2x10
Crunches 2x25 with band resistence.

Yup! That's all!
