I did 500 pushups!

My next goal is to do a 20 rep set of pullups, so I plan to adjust my training accordingly.

I did the lat pulldown machine for about half an hour straight. I used various bars (bent bar, straight bar, bar with handles perpendicular to bar, etc) and grips (wide, med, close; supinated, pronated). For most of the exercises I set the weight pin between the 6 and 10 settings, I'm not sure how many pounds that corresponds with.

Also my wife got me an MP3 player for the gym. Tonight I loaded it up with a bunch of Earth Crisis. Their first EP "All Out War" is still my favorite

Tues Sep 13

wrist curls - did a bunch with 75 lb bar

reverse wrist curls - did a bunch with a 45 lb bar

situps - hung from a pullup bar and did a bunch of vertical situps

thick grip deadlifts - this was a first for me, and I had to improvise because there aren't any thick grip bars in my gym. What I did was take a curlbar, put a 45lb and 25lb plate on each end (165lbstotal) and then grip the curlbar outside of the plates on the wide part where the plates slide on. My grip felt weak. My back and legs can do a bunch of 165s easily, but I could only hold on to the thick part of the bar for about 5 reps per set before I had to put it down and give my hands a rest. After a few 165 lb sets, I dropped the 25s and did 115 lb sets (2 x 45 lb plates + 25 lb bar). I went for a couple of high rep sets like this and could really feel it burn in my grip muscles

Also, I ordered a CoC gripper and a wrist roller bar. I can't wait to try them out when they arrive

pullups - The biggest set I did was 18 reps, with a total of 60 pullups for the night. I'll try again for the 20 rep set next Saturday

music - listened to music from the Rocky movies' soundtrack tonight

Also my wife bought me this today - http://www.altusathletic.com/product_de ... duct_id=91 . I'll be able to do some leg and oblique exercises with it that I'm unable to do at my gym. Plus I'm going to try using it to do some exercises that I already do with free weights. For example, I'll be able to do an exercise that works sort of like an incline fly that turns into a pullover - and all in one fluid movement. I want to try doing chest presses and rows in a more circular, fluid motion with it to see how that hits my muscles differently than it does when I use dumbbells or barbells

I'm going to try to keep track of my daily eating habits in this log too. Here's today:

breakfast - oatmeal and orange juice

lunch - chili (pinto beans, tomatoes, onions, chili powder, sesame oil, flax oil), and water with creatine (approx. 3 grams)

snack - a few handfuls of mixed nuts, and some more water

dinner - pasta with peas and sun dried tomatoes, and water

snack - some bananas, handful of mixed nuts, more chili, and water

Sun Sep 18

wrist roller - rolled for about 15 minutes straight with 20 lbs on the end of the rope

thick grip deadlifts - 2" grip, 165 lbs, several sets, 100 reps total

wrist curls - a few sets, around 30 reps total at 80 lbs

reverse wrist curls - a few sets, around 50 reps total at 45 lbs

music - listend to the Rocky soundtrack again. It's the best workout music

food - I don't remember everything I ate yesterday exactly, but it included: tacos (beans, lettuce, tomato, salsa), a large container of mixed nuts, soy yogurt, bananas, chili, mac and chreese (chreese is non-dairy cheese) and lots of water

I tried out the new Altus door gym my wife got me. I spent about an hour with it trying out all sorts of exercises from muscle groups all over the body. On most of the them, there just wasn't enough resistance from the 4 cables, or else the exercises were ackward and I didn't feel like I was getting much out of them - except curls. I really like this thing for doing curls. I set it at the maximum resistance and then do curls from all sorts of angles: with the cables coming up in front of me, behind me, on the sides. It's kind of hard to explain the curls I was doing, but the best way I can think of to describe it is just imagine doing curls, except with an additional weight pulling off to the sides or in front of you or behind you. My wife got the piece of equipment on clearance and didn't pay that much for it, so I think I'll get my money's worth just from the way I'm able to do curls with it.

food - I ate a bunch of bowls of grain cereal with soymilk, drank a bunch of citrus juice (orange and grapefruit), and ate some sandwiches with vegan burgers and vegan deli slices, also took water with 3 grams of creatine this morning

Since I'm losing my scholarship to law school, I've been applying for government jobs all over the country. My wife and I worked out a list of the places we want to live in the most, and Portland is #1 on the list. We even picked out a place up there - http://www.buckmanapartments.com/bt/environmental.html if I get some kind of offer up there. I'm excited. I hope going up there works out

Wow, that is great apartment complex! I hope that everything works out well for you in terms of locating a job! I am really sorry to hear about your scholarship! I understand your agitation with my earlier "complaining". So sorry! Again, I hope that everything works out for the better!
