  9. Yeah I'm keeping up with the workouts. Taking a lot of classes this semester, so I'm not exactly in the greatest shape of my life. Standing 1 arm dumbbell press - 60lbs 3x5 Standing BB strict press: 100lbs 3x9 Deep BB Squat - 135lbs 3x12 Bodyweight Dips - 4x12 Just really trying to maintain lately... I'm trying hard to improve on my 1 arm DB presses. I'd like to be pressing the 70s by summer... still a long way off from that Here's a current picture
  10. Tuesday's workout: Standing 1 arm dumbbell press: 60lbs - 3x7 Clean and press: 125lbs - 3x5 Dips: Bodyweight 4x12 Yesterday's workout: Deadlift: 255lbs - 5x2 Dumbbell curls: 40lbs - 4x7 Chin ups: 10, 10, 8, 2, 8, 2
  11. Yesterday's workout: T bar rows: 50x10, 75x10, 100x10, 125x5 Dumbbell shrugs: 100lb dumbbells x6, x6, x4 Pull ups: w/25lb plate x8, x8, x7 Dumbbell curls: 40lb dumbbells 40x7, x7
  12. Standing 1 arm dumbbell press: 40x5, 50x5, 60x5, 60x5 Picking up 2 100lb dumbbells from the floor and shrugging: 4x5 1 arm 1 sided standing barbell press: 45lbs x 10, 70lbs x 10, 90lbs x 5 Pretty good pressing workout. Shoulders feel much better since I stopped bench pressing and did all my lifts standing instead of seated or laying down! =)
  13. I eat about 2000 calories a day. I don't eat much. I get between 70 and 100 grams of protein. I make a protein shake every morning with brown rice protein powder and pea protein powder and some fruit and soy or almond milk. Nothing fancy! Pressed 70lbs one arm overhead yesterday! I wouldn't say I'm competitive exactly, there are some bigger and stronger guys on here, but for weighing only 150 I'd say I'm fairly strong
  14. Yesterday's workout: Standing dumbbell shoulder press: 60x2, 50x5, 50x5 Barbell squat: 185x5, 185x5 Barbell clean and push press: 115x5, 115x5
  15. Yesterday's workout was a tough one. I hit shoulders and back. First I did standing dumbbell shoulder press. 55lb dumbbells for 5 sets of 5 Then I did deadlifts with double overhand grip 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 250x5 The grip is the toughest part, but it's worth it...my forearms are killin' me!
  16. Pullups: 4 sets perfect form Barbell rows: 95lbs 4x10 (starting light because I'm using different form) Barbell curls: 4 sets wide grip 80lbs on the highest set Incline dumbbell curls: 4 sets 25lb dumbbells Chin ups: 4 sets
  17. Just give up the deadlifts and back squats. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different outcomes! Many people just aren't biomechanically suited for deadlifts - there are so many factors. And there are so many exercises to choose from! Why bother getting injured just because something is popular? The oldtime strongmen didn't do barbell squats - hell, many of them didn't even have barbells! And they found a way to be in great shape and super strong! Don't keep getting injured Robert! Veganism needs you in your top shape...
  18. standing db press: 40lb dumbbells 10, 10, 10, 6 Incline bb press: 135lbs 4x8 Dips: 25lbs 4x9
  19. OHP: 115lbs 6, 6, 5, 4, 3 Incline BB bench: 115lbs 10, 10, 10, 10 Seated dumbbell press: 40lbs 8, 8, 8, 7 Dips: 25lbs 8, 8, 8, 7
  20. I looked at your log man. I'm wondering something though. How can you do so many pull ups and chin ups but only military press 50kgs for 3 or 4 reps? I'm so confused. I military press more than you and probably weigh 30-40lbs less than you but you do more chin ups than me? It makes no sense! Mind****!!!
  21. Pullups: 9, 9, 9, 7 BB rows: 135lbs 8, 8, 8, 8 Db Curls: 35lbs 9, 9, 8, 8, Face pulls: 90lbs 11, 11, 11, 11 Chins: 8, 8, 8, 6 2 minutes rest again. Great pump and feeling strong! Improved on everything except chins!
  22. Standing military: 115lbs 6, 6, 5, 4, 4 Neck press: 115lbs 11, 11, 11, 10 Dumbbell shoulder press: 40lb dumbbells 8, 8, 6, 7 Dips: 25lbs 7, 7, 7, 7
  23. I injured my back and I really can't do deadlifts or squats anymore, so I do bodyweight squats on my off-days. The barbell rows are done pendlay style off the ground for each rep, so that gives my lower back a lot of work. I really can't do much lower back work, which I'm pretty upset with. I was deadlifting 315lbs at 155lbs, and squatting 225lbs, but that's all gone away. I've always had a weak lower back, and I told myself not to get upset about not deadlifting and squatting, because I don't care since I'm not going to compete. So in short: I just do the exercises that feel good and natural for me to do. Deadlifts and squats no longer feel natural I guess...
  24. Pull ups: 9 9 8 7 BB rows: 135lbs 7 7 7 7 Db curls: 35lbs 8 8 8 8 Face pulls: 90lbs 10 10 10 10 Chin ups: 8 8 8 6 2 minutes rest between each set again. Killer workout! The form is near perfect on everything, and no swaying or cheating any movements. (That's why my poundages are much lower than my maxes) I used to do chin ups with 30lbs hanging from me, but I decided to put them at the end of the workout so I am too fatigued to go too heavy. It feels better on my joints too!
  25. Went back to overhead pressing to the front today to mix things up. Felt pretty good! Standing barbell press: 115lbs 5, 5, 5, 5, 4 - 95lbs 8 Neck press: 115lbs 10, 10, 10, 10 Standing dumbbell lateral raises: 17.5lb dumbbells 10, 10, 10, 10 Tricep cable pushdowns: 100lbs 12, 12, 12
