Put new batteries in the scale, looks like I am 143.5. I guess my weight gain has slowed down to about a half lb a week. At first I was gaining 1.5lbs a week, then 1.25, now it looks like .5lbs a week. I guess it's because this is pretty much the heaviest I've been without being fat.

Does "Stay" or the other numbers mean u plan to move up in weight the next time u do that exercise?

Stay means I need to stay at that weight for at least one more week, when I add a number to the end like ->195lbs it means that is the new weight I am trying for next week.

I really never stay though. I either add micro weights or do some negatives. But it's long winded, so I usually write stay. Most people stall when they stay at a weight, so I aim for a couple more reps, either in the form of negatives, or a little bit of extra weight.

I do lots of weird things on my journal. But it's good for keeping notes and tracking progress.

The book is actually a mess, it's got water stains from sweat, and actual water, blood, crumpled pages, dirt from being stepped on....It's like a book of horrors.

Haven't updated in a few days. Been busy researching my Lasik and talking with my surgeon. After my week off I will be revising my lifting routine.

Here are my last two days logs.

9-21-11 Shoulders
DB Shoulder Press 120lbs x8x8x7x3 -> Stay
BB Shoulder Press 130lbs x5x8x5x8 -> Stay
BB Upright Row: 125lbs x8x8x8x8 (I need to slow down on these)
Posterior BB Row: 140lbs x8x8x8x8 (Gonna cut these)
Revised DB Lateral Raises 2x15lbs x8x8x8x8 ->2x20lbs
Posterior Delt Flys: 2x20lbs x8x8x8x8 (Drop to 15s)


This was a good day. Everything went smoothly.

9-22-11 Legs
Front Squats ATG 150lbs x8x8x8x8 ->160lbs
Machine Leg Press 385lbs x8x8x8x8 ->395lbs
DB Stiff Leg Deadlifts 130lbs x10x10x10x10 ->140lbs
Seated Calf Raises 200lbs x10x10x10x10 -> Stay/Slow Down
Standing EZ Bar Calf Raises 205lbs x10x10 225lbs x10x10 ->235lbs

When I come back I will be focusing on a 2 second up, 2 second down tempo, using more control, and doing things correctly. I'll also be moving my days, and knocking out some exercises.

9-23-11 Back

Pullups x8 10lbsx8 20lbs x8x8 25lbs x8x8 ->25lbs
Rack Deadlifts 225lbs x8x8x8x8 ->235lbs
T-Bar Row: 160lbs x8x8x8x8 ->165lbs
DB Row 2x90lbs x8x8x8x8 ->2x95lbs
Pulldown Burnouts: 172.5lbsx8x8x8x8

I dropped my pullups and chinups variants to 25lbs, realizing if I am gaining about 1lb a week then I should only be adding a couple lbs to my lifts. From now on I will be adding 2.5lbs to each a week. I focused on a wide grip, slow movement, keeping my elbows back and pinching my shoulder blades together. I think my lats aren't growing from improper form.

Now it's time for Lasik, and 1 week off.

Well, it's finally that time. I will be taking a week off while my eyes heal from Lasik. This will give my body and mind time to recover. I will be working on some new goals during this time off.

I've completely eliminated hack squats and back squats and will be focusing on front squats, dumbbell squats, and leg presses. I've also chopped a few exercises I think are crummy. I quite enjoy front squats, I've never been comfortable having weight crushing my spine, this solves the issue nicely and I think for my bio mechanics they transfer over better to quad development.

Surprisingly I have never felt any pain or discomfort with deadlifts or rack deadlifts, or stiff leg deadlifts. I quite enjoy them and will continue to progress on them.

Here are some numbers from the past 8 weeks.

Starting Body Weight End of July: 129lbs at 9% Bodyfat / Ending Body Weight Today: 145lbs at 10% Bodyfat
Bench Press: 190lbsx8
Front Squat: 150lbsx8
Leg Press: 385lbsx8
Deadlift: 205lbsx8
Rack Deadlifts: 225lbsx8
T-Bar Row: 160lbsx8
One Arm DB Row: 90lbsx8
Seated Shoulder Press: 130lbs
Pullup/Chinup: +25lbsx8
Dip: +55lbsx8

I am quite pleased and will work on some reasonable goals after my rest time. (:

Not weightlifting related, but I figured I'd post anyway. I am nearly 72hrs out from my LASIK eye surgery. I went from 20/150 without glasses, 20/30 with glasses to 20/10 vision. My eyes are recovering nicely, I attribute my fast recovery to my stout diet and exercise regime. The eyes are pretty slow to heal, but I reckon I am giving them a quicker recovery with my lifestyle. On a side note, I was watching TV yesterday and an ASPCA commercial came on, and I bawed so hard.
