Looks good, except the lying extensions were prescribed 30lbs with dumbbells.  If you don't have dumbbells and are using a bar then you could probably work with 60-70lbs no problem.

 Cheesy  Yep, I thought it was too easy but I told you I would follow it for a month as written... Cheesy  I do have dumbells, just not contacts.  My tri's are actually a little sore today from something?  Probably just the volume overall.

Today I shot basketball at a brisk pace for about 25 minutes then spent another 15 on a treadmill and 7min on a stepper.

considering the lack of sleep and getting off of a 12 hours night shift.

Did you do all that AFTER you worked all night???  Shocked

Good deadlifts and damn good SLDL's!

I went ahead and started my Bench DE day today.

Speed bench
45lbs X 10reps
135lbs X 3reps
155lba X 3reps X 8 sets

Closegrip bench off pins 6" off chest
145lbs X 5reps
185lbs X 5reps
225lbs X 5reps
275lbs X 2reps  (I couldn't get 5)

Lying extensions (Should have been 30lbs but I don't have a smaller bar than 45lbs) Still easy.
45lbs X 8reps X 3 sets

Barbell  rows
135lbs X 10reps X 4 sets  (I had to suck it up to get all these in but I did it)

Dumbell press
35lbs X 10 reps alternate arms  X 3 sets

I felt pretty good today after getting some needed rest in.  I feel a little pain in my upper chest/collar bone area but it's the same on both sides and I'm not too worried about it.  For some reason I only get that pain when I do presses off pins?? 

I did the dumbell press with my palms in because my shoulder joints feel "funny" if I go palms out.  This was a good workout and I handled the volume pretty good, although I was sucking air doing 40 reps of fairly heavy rows.  I just realized I did 25 sets... That's probably the most I've done in several years.

thanks! hows your bench coming along?

I guess ok.  I still can't quite get 300 though.  I had an epic meltdown a few days ago but Zack talked me off the ledge (by calling me lazy Smiley) and I've spent a few days recouping so I'll be ready to go heavy again Monday.

I did about 45 minutes of machines.  I did leg presses, pulldowns, tricep pushdowns, bench on a machine, leg curls, leg extensions, overhead presses, incline benches, curls, hypers, situps, pec deck and probably more.  Then I shot basketball for about 10 minutes.

Just a nice, easy, high rep workout.  Starting Monday, I'm going to be a Zack's mercy for a month so I'm just trying to stay loose until then.

PM sent.  If you'll write a month out, I'll follow it exactly for that entire month.

You know what?  I'm going back to a 5 X 5, starting tomorrow.  I don't ever remember feeling tired and rundown using it.  Plus it's structured so that you make controlled, incremental gains.  I think my problem is that I push too hard every workout until my body starts pushing back. 

I've made very good gains since I stopped the 5 X 5 but I think most of the gains were the result of the
5 X 5 that I simply cashed in after I stopped using it. 

Day 1
Box Squats 5x5
leg press-3-4 sets
leg extensions 2-3 sets
Abs-2 sets
Calves-2-3

Day 2
Benchpress 5 X 5
tricep extensions 2-3 sets
dumbell laterals side and rear- 2-3 sets
Abs-2 sets

Day 3
Deadlifts 5 X 5
SLDL- 3-4 sets
Very heavy (500+)lbs rack pulls holding as long as I can. 2-3 sets
leg curls 2 sets
Pulldowns 2 sets
curls- 2 sets

Day 4
Closegrip Benchpress 3-4 sets
tricep extensions (lying and standing)- 3-4 sets total
light dumbell presses-2 sets (I wish I could do the heavy overhead presses like I used to but I can't risk my shoulders)
dumbell laterals- 2 sets
Abs-2 sets

Starting weights (5 sets of 5 reps) I increase the weight every week until I can't hit even one set for 5, then I back it down and start over again.
Squats-200 (increase by 20 each week)
Deads-260 (increase by 20 each week)
Bench-200 (increase by 10 each week)

Fugging gym is closed! Angry

Worked out at my house and I just wasn't feeling it.  My groin starting aching with the light squats and finally forced me to stop before I got anywhere near a PR. Angry Angry  Not my best effort but at least I got something in.

Box Squats
150lbs X 10reps
150lbs X 5 reps
200lbs X 3 reps
220lbs X 3 reps
250lbs X 1 rep
270lbs X 1 rep
290lbs X 1 rep
320lbs- groin hurt so bad that when I hit the box I just sat it on the bars.

SLDS- even my back never got completely loosened up and felt like my ribs were trying to separate again.
150lbs X 6 reps
150lbs X 6 reps
150lbs X 6 reps
170lbs X 6 reps

Gave up!!  I'm not sure I can handle two lower body workouts a week, or else you guys are right and my CNS needs a break.  I think I've hit a major plateau.  I'll give it another month or so and probably go back to a 5 X 5 (starting light and working up every week)

We do have a reverse hyper machine.  I didn't know exactly what it was called though.

Also I do several warmup sets that I don't include on my entries.  Usually I start with the last warm-up/first work set.  Thanks Zack, I'll let you know how tomorrow goes after my workout.
42  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: Dracoy's Path from EPIC FAIL to EPIC WIN! on: September 06, 2009, 07:34:35 PM
I hope not, what would the difference be?

Not much, probably.  It's pretty mild right now, sorta like a regular flu but it's slightly more fatal to some people.

Have you tried Imitrex for the headache's?  It does a good job for me and I get severe headaches also.
43  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: splinterhands (quest for 300/400/500 at 181 by year end) on: September 06, 2009, 06:38:00 PM
Stop maxing on dynamic effort days.  Trust me.  Your volume should be through the roof on DE day with moderate intensity.  Looking at your last workout I have more volume in my warmup then you have in your entire workout.  You can cut the volume back some on ME day to hit higher percentages but it's the volume overall that's going to give you better gains.

How does this look for tomorrows ME squat day?
Box squats 5reps, 4reps, 3reps, 2reps, PR attempt
SLDL- 3 sets X 8 reps
Ham curls on machine 3 sets X 8 reps
lower back hypers- 3 sets X 10 reps
crunches- 3 sets X 25 reps

I think I have a mental block about high volume and running outta steam halfway through...or something. Huh

Benchpress DE
150lbs + 62lbs chain (8 sets)  Very easy and never slowed down from start to finish.

off #8 pin (about 10" off chest)
320lbs X 1 rep
320lbs X 1 rep
350lbs X 1 rep (PR) Grin  This beat my previous PR from June by 10 lbs and it was at the end of my workout.

Dumbell rows
55lbs X 8 reps (3 sets)

Front raises + tricep extensions
2 sets using 35lbs plate X 15-20 reps

Notes-starting to wonder what the weight limit is for my safety cage. Undecided Smiley

I guess thats just going to happen while in school and working and all?

I assumed you were older than you are.  You're going to be a beast if you stay at it AND stay somewhat injury free.

I am not pregnant and don't really need to spread strange rumors. 

You may want to take a look at the training log board then... Grin  We've already decided on baby names and took up enough money to build a nursery.

The way you structure your accessory work could use some tweaking but your primary lifts are looking strong.

What do you suggest for accessory work?  I really am open to any suggestions.

One thing I know I did wrong was doing back on bench day.  I started doing a few light sets of pulldowns and rear delts and kept adding weight to it.  I had a flashback to 20 years ago when I always did back after chest...  I could feel it in my lats and traps when I was deadlifting.

  Flex equipment is pretty decent too.

The "fitness center" I work out at has Flex and most of it seems pretty effective.  I haven't used any machines for several years but the more I use them, the more I like them.
