2-7-13 Rest

The weather turned cold quick and we got some snow today so yesterday I cut some wood to prepare for the 4-5 day cold snap we are currently in.

2-8-13 1hr 40 min
1 arm DB deadlifts 128# x6x6x6x6 > 130.5#
1 arm DB rows 128# x5x5x5x5 > 130.5#
DB shoulder press 141# x5x Failx4xFailx3 Drop 136# x5 > Hold 141#
Weighted pullups +42.5# x5x5x5x5 > +45#
DB shoulder side raises 126# x8x8x8 > 131#
1 arm DB shrugs 85.5# x10x10x10 > 88#
Unladen pullups x12x12x12

With the 146# I have shoulders are the only movement being challenged right now. I failed pretty hard at 141# shoulder presses but that's ok, with everything maxed It gives me something to work at.

Got two new 25# weights today bringing my total iron collection up to 196# incl. DB handles. Woohoo! They have that new weight smell!

Thanks buddy! Hope you're well!

2-12-13 1hr 22min
DB deadlifts 151# x8x8x8 > 156#
DB bent over rows 131# x8x8x8 > 136#
DB shoulder press 136# x7x8x8 > 141#
Weighted pullups +40# x8x8x8 > 42.5#
DB shoulder side raises 2x 60.5# x10x10x10
DB shrugs 176# x10x10x10 > 181#
Pullup drops +10# x12x12x12 > Hold

I feel absolutely incredible. It's so much easier having these two new 25# weights. So much easier than using two 10s and a 5. Also, the progression this new 50# will allow is going to be great. My size gains have stalled because I ran out of iron, but not for the next couple months! I feel incredibly strong and energetic.

My plan for my next purchases are two 45# weights, and an Olympic bar. Perhaps some collars.

Slept 10hrs, finally caught up on my sleep. A nice relaxing rest day. So excited to do my heavy chest workout without that painful overloaded weight vest and a backpack tomorrow!

300 g of protein?! I wanna do...only whats an old lady gonna do with all that muscle!

Say hi to Mom...will be in San Diego for a few days visiting my nasty, not so nice but I love them to death chirruns. the female one needs a smack or two, but it certainly will not be by my hand, I could be accused of abuse...again...oy..gotta laugh.

Your workout is insane, God job! I have been real sick to my stomach so just a lot of cardio...averaging teh equivalent of 7 miles day running and I was lifting , but last two weeks...hard when my stomach acts up..as you are aware of in your own life. But I look real lean and semi ripped. Again, whats an old lady gonna do with all that muscle?

Hugs...

Heya Amy! Yeah I wanna get my protein higher. I'd rather have too much in my diet than not enough. Ideally I'd like to get uo to 350g or so but I am already eating like a horse. Sorry your guts are still no beuno, and about your kiddos. ): I'll give mom the best. And as always, if you feel like it, swing by the mountain and say hi!

2-14-13 1hr 25min
DB chest press 156# x5x5 > 161# x5x5 > 166#
Weighted dips +57.5# x5x5x5x5 > +60#
Weighted hammer chinups +55 x5x5x5x5 > +57.5#
Weighted decline pushup +60# x8x8x8 > +65#
Triceps overhead press 88# x8x8x8 > X
Bicep curls 45.5# x8x8x8 > Hold
Close grip chinups +10# x12x12x12 > Hold

It felt really good to get some progression on my chest with my new weights. I was surprised at how easily I pressed 161# and feel like the next 5# added won't be much of a struggle at all. I calculated my rep max % rates and at 3x8 I am working at 77% my 1RM or so, at 4x5 I am working at 85% my 1RM. This is not a whole huge percentage difference I don't know if these rep/set schemes are beneficial together.

I am nixing my overhead tricep raises because they have become awkward and I feel I could hurt myself; I will be subbing them with DB skull crushers.

I picked up a new journal book. I remember a time when I didn't log my workouts; now it is such a huge part of the experience that I got excited when I got my new log book. I also grabbed a 25# bag of split peas I had ordered. I ate a crap ton today because mom made me rice pudding for Valentine's day, also had a couple grilled cheese sandwiches and 1/8 jar of PB (The small jars) So I think I'll fast later tomorrow. It's pretty much impossible for me to get fat, I might lose a little definition if I go balls out for 1-2 weeks, but that's it. Even since I stopped running I am lifting 6x a week doing 6 1-1.5hr full body workouts; plus manual labor with work 2-3x a week, as well as fasting for 16hr periods. I'M THE GODDAMN BATMAN.

Listening to this:


And drinking coffee. Mmm. Coffee.

Log books are cool, an invaluable record. What sort of book did you buy?

2-15-13 1hr 22 min
1 leg squat 103# 5x5x5x5 > 106#
Lunges 151# x12x12x12 > 156#
Hamstrings 133# 10x10x10 > 138#
Calves 2leg 191# x12x12x12 > 196# or /2
Ab rollers +20# x12x12 > Hold 1 Wk
Hanging abs +20# x12x12 > Hold Wk
Obliques 95.5# x10x10x10 > Hold Wk

I've been feeling a bit tired the past two days. I'm not sure if I'm just tired or becoming a bit over trained from my new routine. I'm going to wait it out a few days and see how I feel. If I do anything I'll just add a 2nd rest day to the week; right after legs. Also kind of tossing around the idea of dropping my light circuit in favor of my heavy circuit because of how close they are % wise to RM. I do feel really strong though.
