So that running never happened because I got a wee bit too drunk and made out with this really cool vegetarian girl who I again hung out with into the wee hours of the morning Saturday night-Sunday morning(sober) and I have a huge thing for now. Wish me luck!

 

Today was back and shoulders. Not the best day thanks to like the 11 hours of sleep I got all weekend(5AMSAT-12PMSAT then 7AM-11AM(i'm not kidding, we talked from like 2 in the morning till 6, and then well... i don't kiss and tell ) I did get to go sing with my fraternity at a nursing home and it went really well.

 

Deadlifts

Way too easy so I upped the weight.

Next week I'm starting at 110kg. Gotta get back up to 120kg and then try and get a good max lift.

 

Shrugs

[email protected] fail on 8

 

There was the entire damn basketball team in the weight room and not a single damn one of them had any fucking weight room etiquette. One of them started fucking around the weights I was using to shrug. It's a damn good thing I'm always in a good mood when I'm lifting or I would've smacked his stupid jock-strap bro chauvinist pig ass. I was really tired on top of that so combined with the jocko-douchebaggery I figured I'd leave early with at least a good lift(not a great one).

 

Time to eat some spinach!

You don't do very many sets. Do you have any pattern, or just what you feel like doing?

 

I generally do 3 sets of 8(or more) on lifts i'm using to sculpt muscle and I'm working towards being able to do 5 sets of 5 on my "power" type lifting lifts.

 

Another thing I do is that with the last 6 lifts(not the skullcrushers or preacher curls) are grouped into super sets.

 

So basically 1 set tricep pulldowns, 1 set curls, 1 set DB bench and then repeat 2 more times. And then the next super set is One handed pulldowns, curls, reverse one handed pulldowns, incline DB bench. I do this to keep my heart rate up at the end.

 

In about a month I should have a much more solid workout plan possibly with more days lifting. I'm still trying to find a time I can squeeze cardio in. My college schedule is very busy.

I had a crap day lifting today. Just wasn't in the mood combined with being drained from certain activities this weekend.

 

Anywho here are the lifts

 

Deadlifts

 

[email protected](60KG)

 

My legs were killing me so I took it easy.

 

Shrugs

 

[email protected]

 

I surprised myself with shrugs and rocked the crap out of them. Probably because deadlifts were easy style.

 

Seated Rows

 

[email protected]

 

also pretty easy.

 

Side Rows

 

[email protected]

 

I'm going to kick my ass on wednesday to make up for this crap today.

Studying was last week(I had 3 tests in one day).

 

 

 

I actually had a bunch of stuff.

 

 

 

Friday night watched Metalocalypse with the metal heads(there's 3 of them at my school and I love them all), then got up at 8AM(fuck) to play a damn band concert(which was terrible because musicians don't do that crap), then got back showered, went to play in the pep band for the football game(it was homecoming weekend), ran back to the apartment, showered again(it was a record high, thank you republicans), went to an Alumni reception for Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia(my music fraternity I'm in) then had our founder's day ceremony, then hung out at Ihop(yick, no vegan yummies), got some IPA and Goose Island, watched Saw and did other shenanigans and then had sex till 4:30 in the morning.

 

Sunday I ate and cleaned.

 

I had a lot of fun and don't regret any of it, I was just exhausted. Thankfully this week I've had a lot of classes canceled so it's pretty light.

(it was a record high, thank you republicans)

 

Don't place the blame on someone else, you are just as responsible as anyone.

 

I like to smack talk them as often as possible. It's actually a risky endeavor at my school.

 

And I beg to differ that I'm equally responsible. I know I am part of it but I do not have as much power as a politician and I sure as hell didn't vote for any republican.

 

Now if Ron Paul gets the nomination...

I know I am part of it .

 

Good, everyone is.

 

So is the sun, considering there's good scientific evidence to show every other planet in the solar system warming as well.

 

Not to say that we don't have an impact on warming through our actions, which is undeniable.

I'm not a fan of Paul...he's not honest enough. Huckabee who I disagree with on nearly everything is the only honest republican up there that doesn't seem to cater to the lobby....he may agree with them but he doesn't cater to them. On the demogratic side the only people I trust are Grabel and Kucinich. They are both crazy and have not chance at all but they are both honest. Well Kucinich is just crazy to the general public...not to me. Out of possible winners of primaries I'm not happy about voting this term. If Hillary wins I'm really hoping moneybags Bloomberg runs.

Barbell curls with 45 lbs olympic bar

Good lift. I'm adding cardio in on weekends. Should be fun to see the results of that in a month. I bet it'll be interesting to see how much fat I can shed.

 

My goals for my body as of today are:

 

Build strength

Tone muscles, but mainly go for a big ol' strongman look

cut fat from stomach area(bleh, this is the sucky goal)

Improve cardiovascular strength

 

I'm focusing more on an all around lifting routine this year. Last year was big time powerlifting. I'm sure I'll switch my focuses around a few times this year just to keep things interesting.

Ok lift considering I stressed about my math test and got very little sleep.

 

(for no good reason either, the professor says he's doing a time curve which is good because myself and about 99 percent of the class didn't finish.

  • 2 weeks later...

Well I had fall break and didn't lift at all because I was home. I come back and find out I can no longer lift on Monday because apparently our shitty basketball team needs the weight room to themselves. Whatever.

 

Anyway I'm going to be doing back and shoulders on sunday now.

 

Today was a light chest and arms day because I have a recital tomorrow. Can't play trombone with sore muscles. I've tried.
