"Do we get to go home early"   I hate that question and I hear it every day of the year before a holiday. With people getting laid off...no one having a steady 9-5 should ever ask such a stuped question.  But  I was asked that all day.    NO   we HAVE to work    earn our pay!!!!!!!  Now get to work!!!! Angry Angry Angry

I'm guessing you're the boss? Grin

Why not post your current workouts on the training boards so everyone can see what you have going on day to day?

140lbs X 10
230lbs X 5
320lbs X 5
410lbs X 1
465lbs X almost  (no chalk, lost grip on my left hand)  The weight felt light and very liftable though

Rack holds to work on grip
500lbs X as long as I could hold it  3-4 times

leg press on machine
stack X 8 reps X 3 sets
leg curls 2 sets
hypers 1 set
crunches 2 sets
about five minutes on the stair climber.

probably a few things I'm forgetting...

I do think I get in a hurry on my sets and don't recover enough between them.  I did feel a little fatigued before I attempted 300.  Honestly, the weight felt pretty light in my hands, I just lost it about 6 inches off my chest.  My only goal with the benchpress is to get 300 so my next day, I'll do a lighter, easier warmup and see what happens.

I'm on straight days M-F 8 to 5 playing detective for a few months so my diet has honestly been pretty damn good (for me anyways).  Grin  It may just be a natural fluctuation?  We'll see after a few more weeks.

I went to the fitness center and did my accessory work. 

2 sets of pulldowns
2 sets of crunches
2 sets of lower back hyper things
2 sets of machine rows
2 sets of rear delt things on a machine
25 minutes on a treadmill

I'm still trying to figure the machines out without looking really dumb... Grin
I ran into a couple old buds there.  One of them is freaking huge!!!!!!!!  He was juiced then but he has gotten huge in the last five years!! Shocked

Bench press ME

Regular benchpress

150lbs X 10 reps
150lbs X 5 reps
220lbs X 3 reps
270lbs X 1 rep easy as nothing
300lbs X FAIL!!!  All fugging most... Angry
150lbs X 17 reps

I felt really good today.  I worked on technique and form and really do feel it in my lats way more than normal.  Can't believe I missed 300?? 

I'm going to the fitness center to do some cardio with my wife.  My weight is back to 199?HuhHuhHuh?  I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.  I lose 3-4 lbs and feel good then the next week it comes back, even though I'm watching diet and have been doing cardio. Sad

interesting log..

curious to see if you find success in some of these training protocols..


design them yourself?

Not really.  What I'm doing now is supposed to be a type of westside.  Most of what I've done to this point is give a day each to bench, deads and squats and a day for accessory's.  I think I've just about got all the easy gains that way so I'm trying to settle into a more long term way to keep gaining.

Any advice?

I got talked into joining a "fitness center" with my wife.  We walked 25 minutes on treadmill then did a light set of circuit of about 15-20 minutes.  My problem is that they have some really cool accessory machines.  They don't allow chalk or chains and I doubt I could bring a box in to squat with.  However, it would be nice to head over AFTER my main exercises and use the leg press, ab machines, leg curls, hyper machines and so on.  That's my plan...to do my main exercises here and head straight over and finish up.

Is it time to bulk up yet?  Do you have any powerlifting meets coming up?
66  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: the life and times of a permabulker on: August 30, 2009, 10:06:16 AM
waist is down an inch!

Any chance you might make 198 by your next meet?  It sounds like the diet is going well for ya.

yea take a drug to get better before you try the getting healthy & in shape way Roll Eyes

150/100 is about where mine stays without medicine. Twenty pounds of weight loss or weight gain doesn't make a difference either way.  It's way more genetic than lifestyle. You can always quit the medicine with no adverse effects later.

JMHO...it's his decision.
68  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: been away for a while...just coming back... on: August 30, 2009, 07:36:58 AM
hey! i haven't been around for a while, and now i am coming back. was at the dr recently. my blood pressure is like 144/96,

I take Lisinopril USP and HCTZ USP 20mg/25mg and I don't have any side effects other than lower blood pressure.  It's a cheap med and does a good job.  Exercise and diet for me plays a minimal role on BP.  Take the meds.

Lower body DE- this was supposed to be yesterday's workout but I had to work 15-16 hour days on both Thursday and Friday.  Wasn't really feeling like doing squats after all that.

Box squats
220lbs X 2reps X 8 sets

Goodmornings
150lbs X 10 reps
180lbs X 5 reps
180lbs X 5 reps
180lbs X 5 reps

a few minutes of abs

Not a bad workout.  I could still feel a pain in my groin when I squatted wide.  That forced me keep my feet closer than normal.  I felt pretty strong overall though.

3-4 knee wraps.

How common is that at a top meet?
71  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: splinterhands (quest for 300/400/500 at 181 by year end) on: August 26, 2009, 06:43:01 PM
Benchpress ME

I had a headache all day from staring at a too small computer screen.  Started working out and just didn't really feel it so I decided to go off the pins to save the shoulders.  This is not my finest work but here goes.

Bench off the #7 pin (about 6 inches off chest)
150lbs X 10 reps
150lbs X 5 reps
220lbs X 5 reps
270lbs X 3 reps
300lbs X 1 rep  felt heavy as shit but technically a PR since I don't have a previous record for it.

tricep extensions with dumbell
side and rear lateral
shrugs with dumbells

The best thing I can say is that this workout is over and I got some work in.  Headaches freaking suck!!

I'm down a solid 3-4lbs and have done good staying on my diet.  Actually the lack of calories may be playing a role in the way I feel. Undecided
72  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: the life and times of a permabulker on: August 25, 2009, 10:20:44 PM
I think an hour or two playing around in the pool is probably the best cardio ever invented.
73  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: splinterhands (quest for 300/400/500 at 181 by year end) on: August 25, 2009, 10:16:40 PM
Long term I'm sure it's not good for you at all but it's addictive as hell though.  Now that I'm training M-W-F-S I'll really have to ease up some.  Before I would sometimes take 3-4 days between training days and had plenty of time to recover.
74  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: splinterhands (quest for 300/400/500 at 181 by year end) on: August 25, 2009, 03:32:29 PM
Take a PR and be happy with it. 

Two makes me twice as happy though. Smiley 
75  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Logs and Info / Re: the life and times of a permabulker on: August 24, 2009, 08:12:31 PM

Not bad at all!
