workout today....

DB flat bench

5x45

5x60
5x60
5x60

Easy! Tonight's Bench press was a breeze!

BD rows

5x45
5x60
5x60
5x60
5x60

Easy also. I am a bit bummed that my USN duffel bags didn't show up today so I could get my sand bags made.

DB dead lift

15x60
15x60

2 sets, I should have done a warm up the first set hurt a bit.


Important things I have learned so far.

A. Eating enough is important!
B. Working out hungry is way better then carb loading.
C. Having the right technique can really help you get the last couple reps.
D. Rest between sets! It is not a race to finish. Let your muscles energize back up before you tear them apart again.

I did not train today. My legs are still hurting form the squats and the bicycle. I figured it may be beneficial to give them a day to recoup. Those box squats are killers. Lots of cal taken in today! I dig eating more, I don't feel so sluggish. 200 grams of protein! woo who!


This is good.

Thanks man. I am going to work on getting more protein in my diet and worry less about cals. I want to get the strength! So rather than tying to trim up I am going to eat! I will work on getting cut in 2010. 09 will be the year of the muscles!

Yeah, like I said in another thread, I'm not sure if I personally like to be thicker or more ripped, but I will be adding about a lb of mass per week for the next 12 weeks with a new diet and training program I've put together. This is not so much a "New years resolution" type thing but more so happening because I have more time now with my company all set up and other ventures taken care of for awhile. I had to take a break from bodybuilding for awhile and my cut last October was unintentional.

People like you inspire me. Especially the new guys. I remember logging weights and food with excitement and enthusiasm when I first started, and seeing it in other guys reminds me of why I love this sport.

food yesterday...


Cals 3135
Protein 240


I didn't workout today. I was going to do abs work but I didn't. I can't ever seem to motivate myself to work on my abs. I hate ab exercises!

I did get one of my sand bags made today :D I started out with 200lbs of sand in the bag, and I nearly busted my ballzach open trying to heave that bag to my shoulder :psycho: . Sand bags feel way way way heavier than free weights! I took the bag down to 150lbs....150 is workable and stills feels heavy! I tried to do a squat with 150 for fun and it was hard! Playing with the sand bag is fun!

I put the sand in zip lock freezer bags, then duct taped them shut. then I put them in a 6mil trash bag... then in an army duffel bag. Let me tell you dude.... just lifting that thing up to my shoulders makes me feel like I am strong! No handles makes it hard to man around. I have two more duffel bags coming to me. I am going to do a 100lb and a 200lb... I am doing the 200 pounder for when I feel the need to break myself....lol.

Yesterdays food


Cals 2515
Protein 198

Workout tonight...

Incline Press (Dumbells)

12x40
6x60
6x60
6x60
6x60

First time I have done inclines. I wanted to do them because the 60's are too light for me on the flat bench now.... I guess they are too light for me on the incline too.... I may have to bite the bullet and get a gym membership...eeeehh... or fork over some real cash for heavy DB's.

DB flys

12x20
6x30

I decided to do flies after benching to stretch out my chest. I did then as tight and as slow as I could.

DB bent rows

12x40
6x60
6x60
6x60
6x60

Again, way to easy.

I finally did curls for the first time since taking lifting up again. I had no idea how much to start with.... especially since my arms were about trashed from the rows. It was kinda cool, my arms pumped up HUGE!

80x12....Sloppy too heavy
30 DB's x 12 x2

I think next week I am going to warm up with 20lb DB and do solid set of 6 with the 35's.

workout tonight....

150lbs Sand bag shouldering... Sets of 1

1x150
1x150
1x150
1x150
1x150

That sand bag is tricky. Next week I will do sets of 2.

DB box squats

12x30
7x60
7x60
7x60
7x60

I will add a rep to the squats next week... 7 was easy. I wanted to squat the sand bag but I am still working on getting it from the ground to my shoulder safely. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

ABS
Leg Lifts
2x15

Shovel scoop the sandbag onto a couch, a chair or a stool. Then get into the hack squat position with your back towards the elevated sandbag. Then shoulder the sandbag behind the neck.

OR

Shovel scoop the sandbag onto a couch, a chair or a stool. Then get into the front squat position with your forearms crossed and hugging the elevated sandbag towards your chest.

OR

Split the weight into two sandbags (two 100lbs). Get into the hack squat position and shovel scoop each sandbag individually onto each shoulder.
