Deadlifts- IN KILOS!!!!!


1x5@96kg
1x5@116kg

I was going to max out but my lower back felt kinda weak. I didn't use my belt on the rest of the workout just to get a better feeling down there.

Back into pounds, sorry my euro friends.

Bent Row(barbel rows)

1x8@85
1x8@95
3x5@105


Seated row(with the cable pulley thing)

1x8@130
1x8@140
1x5@150

God damn that last one was tough


Curl

1x8@30
2x8@25


IRON CROSS!!!!

First time attempting this ever so dont laugh too hard.

3x 10 seconds @ 20 lbs.

Not too shabby for my first time. Tommorow i'm going to do squats, keep it pretty light because i'm working a concert all day, sunday will be bench/dips/etc and hopefully on monday i'll do some clean/jerks.

Met some cool frat boys(they do exist on occasion) who are pretty big time weight lifters. One is a powerlifter, the other is pretty disco, but he plays trombone so he's cool in my book. The actually want me in their fraternity, even after i told them i was vegan. I'm at least going to check it out. Everything seems way different at this college than others. Fraternities around here seem to do wayyyyyy more service work than i've ever heard of, and i love that.

And chalk is the stupidist damn thing ever. It helps your grip, but my hands just get dry and cracked later on anyway. Ughh.

Time to shower and stuff my face!!!!

Pretty decent lift(check out these squats improvements

Back Squats.

1x5@225
1x5@230
1x5@235
1x5@240
1x4@275


I'm starting my squats at 260 next time. Closing on 300 for that real easy.

Bench(this is just embarassing)

3x5@185

I'm really sucking horribly at benching lately. dont know why

3 dips.

I was blown after this. Tommorow is a day of rest and friday will be shoulders. Hopefully will get to bench again on saturday seeing that i need to get way way higher. I was benching 230 PR before i had a shoulder issue.

Kick ass lift day

Deadlifts(in kgs)

1x10 with 10-30 seconds rest in between each rep. @ 122.2 kg. Felt really good.


Shrugs(in lbs)

1x5@225
1x5@315
1x4@315

Seated Cable rows

1x8@140
2x8@150

Bent Rows

1x8@115
2x5@135

Very good workout. Ran back to my dorm which felt really good. I also lost another chunk of weight. I'll get the exact amount tommorow. I weighed in @ 223 on the football scale, and my friend told me that they rig that scale to make the football dudes seem bigger.


Also did the same iron cross thing but with 25s instead of 20s.

Today ruled.

I need a spotter and i'd feel more confident. At least i'm progressing with my bench again


Back Sqauts

5x5@275

Was gonna do front squats but i'm saving those for another day. (sunday)

5 Dips

I said the hell with the rest of the dips and did side bends

Side Bends @ 35 lbs

1x12
1x10
1x8

90 degree leg lifts(ouch)

Today was decent. There was this little shit in the weight room talking about how i supposedly almost kicked his ass. Pile or horseshit. Him and his drunken retard friends tried to jump myself and my friend(my friend had his steel caps on). Funny what people say when they think you're not listening.

Needless to say it got me pumped

Deadlifts(IN KILOGRAMS)

1x5@122kg
1x4@122kg
1x3@122kg
1x2@122kg

Felt a little week with that today and i did them to fast cause i was all riled up.


Seated Cable Rows(POUNDS)

2x8@150
1x6@150

Shrugs

1x5@275(this really hurt bad and i wanted to get more ROM)
2x8@225

I was exhausted after this. Was really hot out today so i was pretty sluggish.

Wednesday should be bench/front and back squats if i'm feeling really peppy. Going home this weekend so i doubt there will be much lifting after wednesday. Gotta get a good lift in before a few off days. Damn weight room was closed all weekend. I have no idea why. O well. I blame the jocks. :lol:

Didn't end in a fight but i wish i would've knocked the crap out of all of them.

I feel i'm making good progress. Gonna lift at my house on saturday. Taking the rest of the week off because i've been a good little vegan. I think taking a few days off every once and awhile is a good thing to do. Let's you refocus and helps make sure i never get bored with my routine.

If i could use one word to describe todays workout it would be Clusterfuck.


Deadlifts(in kilos)

1x5 @ 122.2
2x4 @ 122.2
1x3 @ 122.2

so i go to rack the bastard of a weight and after i do so i find that there is a shooting pain spreading through my legs. Apparently my legs decided to crap out this week. I've done the same thing every time. I think this time i just over worked it.

Bleh. So tommorow i'm probably gonna do back/front squats if my legs aren't totally screwed. If not, i'm probably going to do some high pulls, cleans and rows along with a little benching. Or i'm thinking i'll probably wait till friday.

Well, i lost 2 logs that i did, basically they were 2 days of what i did today...


I got some new grip gloves(newgrip.com) so i tested these bad boys out today.

Shrugs
1x7@315
2x8@315

First one felt like i was slipping but it's just how the bar sits in my hand now. I love these damn gloves. Wrists feel great.

Close bench

1x6@155
1x5@170
1x4@175

Reg bench

1x5@185
1x5@200

Holy crap these gloves are unbelievable. I felt little to no fatigue at all. I should've done push press today i was feeling amazing.

Seated Row

3x6@180

Tommorow i'm going to do some Ab/biceps/shoulder work at high reps. Probably going to hit the stationary bike as well seeing that my knees/shins don't like running. Hopefully i can get a bike up here next semester to i can start training for my 60 mile bike ride next fall. 8)
