I guess this is more of a personal post. I was going through a bunch of stuff with my ex girlfriend this past week. Essentially being accused of actions I have never done and some people assuming they were true. I was down on myself for a few of my workouts, but I started using those emotions to power through my workouts. I've never had something to turn to in my life besides just going out and clearing my head, but with lifting I can use everything I'm feeling and push myself as hard as I can.

I think I'm finally moving on, after saying everything I could have, the thing to do is move forward.



Soul Search has been on replay at the gym, if you enjoy hardcore or heavier stuff this band rips.

March 3.

My hand is healing, keeping it taped up as a precaution. Giving it as much air as I can when I sleep and taping it when I'm using it. Seems to be working.

I managed to use my chin up bar this morning, which ruled:

Neutral Grip Chin ups
3 sets of at least 12 and until failure

Close grip chin ups:
3 sets of at least 12 and until failure

The owl chest piece was done by my friend Jon Pignataro up in Bracebridge Ontario. Works out of a shop called the tattoo shoppe. He does some great stuff

March 5th,2012.
Finally back at the gym after taking a break from my ripped up hand. Its healed a lot, and I don't need to wrap it anymore which rules. Leg day today.
Pre-workout: One cup of black coffee (This helped a lot, and I will be putting this to use for every workout from now on)

Leg-press (weight is per leg)
90 x 12
135 x 12
180 x 12
Huge improvement from the past 160 for only 8.

Squats
135x 12
225 x 12
275 x 8
225 x 8
135 x 12
I wasn't happy with the depth of my squats with 275, so I did a pyramid routine, focusing on my depth and driving the weight up fast with good form.

Standing calf raises
160 x 15
180 x 15
200 x 15
Felt great, and I'm pretty sure I did more than 15, until failure.

Leg extension
120 x 12
135 x 12
150 x 12.

Extremely happy with todays workout.
Post workout: Vega sport protein, Creatine, orange juice.

125 x 12
My wrist started acting up so I stopped after my second set.

Pectoral fly

Post workout: Creatine and Vega sport protein

Meal: Pita, hummus, tofurkey, 1/2 avocado, tomato, cooked beans and carrots and a banana before class.
I'm watching what I'm eating from now on, I got lazy this past weekend and I felt it on monday.

A warm front came in today, bringing 14 degree weather to Eastern Ontario.
Went for a 20 Km bike ride on the track bike.

Rest day. Not as sore as I thought I would be, but definitely still feeling tired. Busy day at school, and shooting an event tonight.

Protein shakes throughout the day, eating wholesome as well.

225 x 12

Shoulder shrugs
135 x 12
185 x 12
185 x 12

Bent over rows

March 10, 2012- Shoulders

Shoulder shrugs
205 x 12
225 x 12
225 x 12

Power Cleans
135 x 6
155x 2
145 x 6
145 x 6
This was the lowest point of my workout, on one of my throws with 155 on the bar I connected with my chest and didn't get my catch. I felt terrible after that, lost a lot of my confidence and needed a few minutes to re-motivate myself. Finally forced myself and struggled through two more sets of 6 with 145. Still an improvement.

Seated shoulder press dumbbell
30x12
35 x 12
40 x 12
Realized I needed to focus on my strength in my shoulders more, I've definitely overlooked them.

Rest day.
My back tightened up last night while I was doing homework, and so far this morning my shoulders have felt alright. Tomorrow I'll be doing legs, hopefully pushing my squat PR and leg press PR.
