evolveahimsa's bodybuilding training log

#1 Postby evolveahimsa » Fri Jun 26, 2009 3:53 pm

6-25-09:
Dips- 4 sets of 30
Skullcrushers- 60lbs x 10 reps, 70x8, 75x8, 75x8
Dumbbell hammer curls- 40lb dumbbells x 6 reps, 40x6, 40x6, 40x6
Tricep pressdowns- 125lbs x 10 reps, 140x10, 155x8, 140x8
Reverse grip barbell curls- 50lbs x 10 reps, 60x10, 65x8

6-24-09:
Dips- 5 sets of 30 reps
Wide grip chins, weighted with dumbbell- 30lbs x 5 reps, 40x5, 50x5, 50x5
Seated rows for back- 140lbs x 8 reps, 155x4


I have never been very consistent about keeping a training log, but I am going to start trying.

I am 5'9 (175cm) and 155lbs (70kg)

Diet: I usually have a large bowl of oatmeal or a bagel with smart balance and juice for breakfast, lots of sunflower kernels and a banana for lunch, a giant dinner of pasta with marinara and olive oil or tacos with beans and guacamole or lentils and rice etc. and a peanut-butter banana berry smoothie before bed. I don't eat anything weird or expensive like protein powders or soy food, veggie burgers, supplements, etc. My diet is very high fat with lots of nuts, seeds, olive oil, and avocado. I also try to hit at least 70 grams of protein per day although I don't always make it. I rarely count calories, but would estimate around 3000 per day. I try to sleep at least 9 hours per day if possible.

You log looks great :) You diet looks really clean too.
Could I ask why you don't take protein powders or any supplements?
It's just unheard of for a BBer not take any.

Nice log will follow this.

No need for expensive powders if he already eats 1g/kg.
We see the winners and "learn" from them, while forgetting the huge unseen cemetery of losers.

I haven't seen any vegan protein supplements in GNC or the vitamin shoppe, not to mention it would be really expensive. I tried some fairly inexpensive soy powder I found at the evil empire but I just couldn't get that nasty stuff down. even before i was vegan, I absolutely hated even the best testing whey flavors. I need to clean up my diet a bit though- stop with all the white pasta and bagels and the rice and increase the amount of peanut butter and sunflower seeds and beans and whole wheat products. but i just loooove pasta (FSM!!) and whole what pasta is gross.

I love Marijuana Muscle hemp powder. It's inexpensive and TASTES GREAT (IMO). I blend it with a bannana or two, few ice cubes and some OJ. 2 scoops and you're rockin 30 grams of protein.

7-3-09: gym was closed after noon and I missed an important workout... did a couple sets of weighted chins at home but not much

7-4-09: had to get up really early (for a saturday) and only had time to eat a bagel as gym was closing at noon
Dips- 5 sets of 30 reps and 10 sets of 15 reps, 300 total
Wide grip chins, weighted with dumbbell- 30lbs x 5 reps, 40x5, 50x5, 50x4- I sucked at these today for some reason
Seated rows for back- 155lbs is too easy, I need to up the weight (although my lower back does hurt a bit with these)

Peanut butter smoothies, sunflower kernels, and black beans are the staples of my diet right now with the occasional bagel or plate of pasta thrown in. Although I usually drink close to a gallon of juice a day, this weekend it might be mostly beer.

7-6-09: cut grass in 100 degree weather before gym (nice warmup haha)

Dips: 3 sets of 30 reps
Wide grip chins, weighted with dumbbell- 30lbs x 5 reps, 40x5, 50x5
Skullcrushers- 60lbs x 10 reps, 70x8, 75x9, 75x9, 75x8
Dumbbell hammer curls- 40lb dumbbells x 6 reps, 40x6, 40x7, 40x6 (these were really hard today)
Tricep pressdowns- I need to find a new tricep exercise; apparently "strong people" don't work triceps on cables says my gym manager (she cannot lift even half of the cable's weight stack, so she bolted up the every pinhole past 170lbs [which is really only 1/4 of the selected weight, 42.5lbs] so that no one else can either). and then she yelled at me for hooking both cables to one bar during my attempt to do tricep pressdowns with 85lbs resistance instead of the maximum one cable weight of 42.5lbs.
Reverse grip barbell curls- 60lbs x 12 reps, 60x10, 60x8 (these always hurt, but I love them)

today was the first day I have eaten really clean(ly?)- the worst shit was some lemonade, but such was taken immediately after working out so it is peachy. oatmeal, sunflower kernels, bananas, pinto beans, tomatoes, olive oil, peanut butter, strawberries, orange juice, and some 85% cacoa chocolate were on the menu today.

I went to a crazy 4 day music/camping festival this past weekend and only planned on taking a week off the gym, but upon returning home I am a bit under the weather. It could be severe food poisoning or an infection from drinking bad water or maybe mono from the chicas or even swine flue haha. the symptoms are pretty similar for all of the above illnesses, but I hope to be back in the gym by next week (it has already been 7 days since I last lifted and with me being such an ectomorph, I lose strength and muscle very very quickly). Also I haven't been able to eat very well at all either, just drinking lots and lots of orange and cranberry juice.
