Maintenance day means I will do enough work so I don't loss my squat or DL strength.

I'm not concerned about increasing my squat or DL strength right now. I want to concentrate on increasing my upperbody strength because it's weak compared to my lowerbody strength.

Does that make sense?

Mary, one other thing. I want to do more cardio. I used to lift weights three days a week M/W/F squat on Mon. DL on Fri. However squatting and deadlifting on two different days of the week leaves my legs fried and to tired to do much cardio.

Tip of the day: Eat something high in carbs right before a heavy workout to keep/increase strength!

Friday 5/15

Strict DB Shoulder Press
46's 5 reps

Btn Lat Pull:
2x15x160lbs

Hammer Curl:
2x8x20's

Push-ups:
2 sets

Cardio:
No cardio. I was in a hurry.

Calories: 1950
Fat: 53g
Net carbs: 243g
Protein: 104g

Notes:
1. I used the same weight for hammer curls and lat pulls this session as Monday because I used to light of a weight on Monday. Usually if I do the same exercise two different sessions a week I go lighter the second session. Again the hammer curls are for my forearms NOT big gunz which I could care less about, even though chicks dig gunz.

2. I've found that I make progress on upperbody pushing exercises if I do my 5 rep max and increase the weight the next week. I haven't found that to be effective for SQ & DL strength gains. I was going to do a 3x5 of push jerks on Friday, but I was in a hurry.

3. DELETE

What about adding DL or squatting into your cardio routine. Check out some of my crossfit workouts. It is cardio lifting. Just a suggestion. Log looking good.
