Workout:
I use a 3 on/1 off schedule that always rotates. 1st day - Legs and Abs
2nd day - Chest and back 3rd day - shoulders, biceps, and triceps

First workout

Today i did legs. I kinda felt a little down on energy, but i forced my way through it. I definitely lacked intensity, but let it go due to recovering from my illness.

Here is how it went:

Leg Extension: *I wanted to superset these with squats, but it was too crowded
5x 8-10 started at 70 pounds and ended at 150

Squat:
5x 10 135, 185, 205, 225, 225
*started to feel pretty horrible after my warm up set, someone suggested taking vitamin c, ill try that out soon.

Leg Press:
3x 10 180 pounds on the machine
* this was where i really started to lose energy and intensity.

Seated Calf:
3x 8 around 90-120 i think

That was about it, after all of that i felt like throwing up so i decided to call it a day as i do work in about two hours.

I realize i forgot to add my supplements, so here they are:
Met-rx Whey protein
prolab creatine
on opti men multivitamin

stay tuned for tommorow.

* as a note, i will weigh myself and take bf every other Monday, starting this week.

Okay... Today i did chest and back, it was a good work out.

I drank a nos pump drink so i had some extra energy as well as (duh) an amazing pump.

I started on flat bench:

135x12 185x5 225x9 (one forced) 205x10 185x10 185x6
*I felt good, defiantly getting over my sickness. My endurance is slowly building up as well as my strength.

Next incline db:
70x6 75x6 70x6 60x 6 50x10
* This felt pretty awkward as i haven't done this in quite a while, but overall i was satisfied.

Weighted Dips:
25 pounds x12 25x12 bwx10 bwx10
*Nothing special about this

Machine Flyes:
Don't remember the exact weight


NOW FOR BACK

Cable Rows:
70x12 160x12 160x12 150x11

Lat pull downs:
160x5 140x 10 (had help on every rep) 140x10 (had help again)
* I was dead by this point, I am thinking about redoing my split so i can have a little more energy.

Deadlifts:
135x10 225x2
*I basically quit here because i suck at life

That is all

So i did decide to change my split. I will be doing chest and calves, back and tris, shoulders and biceps, and legs. Im Trying to do a 2 on 1 off rotation now.
Yesterday i was off so no log for the 2nd. Here is todays (the 3rd)

Started off with rotater cuff warmup (was doing shoulders and bi's)

Shoulder press
*I did around 4 sets up to 185 x5 with 2 forced reps

Shrugs ss with laterals
*did shrugs on the smith machine 135x10 225x10 295 x4
*Laterals- stayed at 25 pounds and did 3 sets of 10 each arm

Upright Rows
*started with 45x10 moved to 65x10 and finished with 85x10

Next i did biceps...

Warmed up biceps on preacher curl machine

Barbell Curl
*got real pissed cuz someone was squatting in the damn curl rack!!!!! jk
* did 45x12 65x10 75x10 45x10

Hammer Curls
*4 sets of 10 with 30. Had to get a little bit of help on the last 2 sets

Concentration Curls
* 2 sets of 35 pounds for around 8, then moved to 40 and did 2 sets of 6 focusing on the negatives



After that i stretched then left and ate. Overall it was a good workout, but i was running around all day doing errands so i was kinda tired. Even so, the workout was still good, and i will weigh myself now becaus it is monday.

Im looking at about 175.5 so i have gained around 2 pounds... but it is most likely from being rehydrated after my flu.  (on a side note, i hate being sick... i cant stand trying incredibly hard to gain alot of weight just so i can be back to normal!!!!)

that is it, tommorow is off. Thursday i have legs.

ok, been some delay due to work and what not. Im gonna pick up with yesterday, the 6th.

I did chest, and it was the first day i tried my new secret training

I started with the secret (which i will reveal after the mr getbig, it works,and works well)

Moved on to do Chest and Calf

Chest:
Did flat bench, incline db, weighted dips, and flyes.
*only thing special is the fact that i got 225 12 times which is a first.

calf:
Seated and donkey
*nothing special


Due to my secret, my intesity was incredibly high, and i was pushing more weight than ever (im still a loser)

Overall good day. I hope to be around 180-182 by monday, and hopefully around 192 by the first of september. Everyone has to have goals.... right?

Alright, so i did shoulders and biceps today... It was pretty good. I had my ipod so i was pretty pumped up.

Started with smith military press
2x90x12 135x12 185 x8 185x8
*was good, but i had a weird seat that kept falling off balance.

Laterals
25x8 30x8 35x6

Front Raises w/barbell
30x10 40x10 60x8 70x6

*That was it for shoulders, i felt a real painful burn even though i kept the volume fairly medium.

Biceps
*kept it short and sweet

Barbell Curl
40x12 50x12 70x8 80x8 70x6

Dumbell curls
30x8 30x8 35x6


and that was it. since it is monday, i will weigh myself to check progress.



...

Post by: ParisAlexander on July 14, 2007, 08:27:08 PM
just got off work, it is time to eat. I got a workout partner to help keep the intensity up and help so i dont have to rely on the smith machine.

ok, my log is going to be slowing down because of crazy business at work. Ill try to update as much as i can. I weigh about 180-181 right now and am upping my cardio to 3 30 minute sessions a week for about 3 weeks, then 5 till the show. Still trying to pack on as much muscle as possible, so im not deiting for a few more weeks.


Title: Re: My log till the Mr. GB
Post by: ParisAlexander on July 19, 2007, 09:58:13 PM
From now on i will be doing 3 full body workouts a week, monday wednsday and friday. Focusing on compound lifts  (Squats, Dls, Bench, Row, Chins, Shoulder press, Curl, and i add some calf raises) I am upping the volume as i go along adding more sets each week.


Title: Re: My log till the Mr. GB
Post by: spacemunkeyz on July 20, 2007, 05:42:05 PM

Title: Re: My log till the Mr. GB
Post by: ParisAlexander on July 20, 2007, 11:27:52 PM
im aiming for abou five-six because that isn't really my main concern. I am still fairly low bf so working on carrying as much muscle as i can is goal #1.
