Workouts, Pennsylvania style

#1 Postby Odidnetne » Sat Dec 02, 2006 5:49 pm

Well, I've been thinking about starting one of these up for a while, and I started to really get back into the swing of things a month ago. I want to start lifting one extra day a week (to bring my total between 4 - 5), and do more body-weight exercises (which I have been doing). My sleep has been very good and today I weighed in at 179.7 (in clothes), the heaviest I've been in a LONG time.

Today I did Shoulders and triceps. Not much new in the way of personal bests with the exception of (around) 100 pounds for most of my sets. I bought tons of food, and plan on eating like a fatty tonight. :-D

I took off the past 2 days because of work, but slept plenty and ate really well, and I was a beast at the gym today. Back, biceps and fore-arms.

- I got up to 35 pounds with wrist curls, though I should have gone higher.

- Rowing 120 pounds

- Lots of pull ups.

- 110 on the back extension. (one of the only machines I used. I used lots of free weights)

- Curled 80 pounds 8 times

- 130 pounds on the behind the neck lat pulldowns.

Now....we EAT!

Let's do this homeboy, sounds good to me.

Was the 80lbs curl with both hands, or one hand at a time? 80lbs in one hand is a monster! I am assuming it was both hands?

I also remember reading that doing the lat pulldown behind the head is kind of bad for you, a risk of injury? But I am not sure about that.

Keep it up, I will be back to regulate your ass

Some people don't like doing it. I try to not go overboard on the weight when doing it, it feels fine to me. I think it's also how far out the grip you use is too. Didn't they do behind the neck in Rob's movie?

Yes, it was 80 pounds with both hands, that's still a record, up from like 65, so I'm still happy. :-P

Feel free to come back and regulate my ass Ninja boy. :-P

I didn't have all that much time today for a big workout, but I managed about a 50 minute tricep workout, which felt really good.

New PB's:

Tricep Press - 210 pounds

Tricep extension - 50-something pounds

Lots of dips.

Looking like a day where I don't go to the gym, but a friend is coming over and we might hit my punching bag and do some other stuff for a while.

Haven't worked out in 5 days, but I'm ending that today. I got killed with some hours, but for the rest of the month I'm going to be able to work out like a fiend (and eat like one, but I do that anyway 8) ) I've got a shoulder and chest workout that I wanted to do Saturday waiting for me at the gym today, let's see if we can get some new PB's!

Got back from the gym and ate up a storm. (Chest and shoulders)

Not much new in the way of personal bests, but I was pushing all my limits, and I worked myself hard, so I'm content with myself.

I did Inclines, Declines, flat bench, military presses, shrugs, some rowing, and a couple other things.

There was a girl who *looked* about my age there. She kept looking at me. I don't think she dug the beard, but she did seem to dig the big weight I was moving. 8)

Back and biceps. I didn't get to work my biceps as much as I wanted (The gym was closing), but I got a good back workout in, and made a few PB's with 4 - 6 lbs on several exercises, and of course, pull ups.

Came home, ate a lot of food, now time to get some stuff done around the house.

I notice that I'm not posting weights and reps like most other people, though I enjoy having this because it does keep me motivated to keep going, which I guess is still worth it.

Leaving in a minute to go do some pull ups at the gym, let's see how many I get and how I'm feeling!

Another Back & Biceps workout. It felt good to workout after a couple of days off. I did a lot of pull ups and Lat Pulls, then ate like a horse.

Chest & Triceps tonight. I benched about 30 pounds shy of my weight, which is better than I've ever done, so I was quite content with the way things went tonight.

I came home and ate 2 black bean burritos with tomato, spinach and avocado...and a plate of pasta may or may not be involved in this incident later.

I did a good bicep workout today with lots of hammer curls and curls on my curling bar. I got up to 75 pounds on the curling bar, which is a new personal best for me, and did hammer curls around 30 pounds (nothing special).
