had a great workout today  Cheesy

first i did rows, i can do slightly heavier but it feels good to nail it 100 perfect form, ill stay at this weight a while before i move up.
then more back.
then i did incline chest, new PR.
then some machine presses.
lateral raises.
shrugs. probably need to go up in weight here and do 45 pound plates.
i keep doing the hammercurls. weight feels a little easier now. ill stay with the light dumbbells though, for now.
then it was time for my leg press where i was looking to add to the bar and it was heavy but i did all 3 sets of 10 with the new weight.
im not suppose to go to failure on this training program but i cant help myself sometimes, im pretty close to failure... it just feels better.

gym observations:

a couple who brought their clothes in, took them off beside the squat rack and of course they were both wearing tights  Sad
both use so light weight it will take them ages to get any results.

I bet a lot of people wanted to steal the clothes they took off if they were nice like lulu lemon or gym shark

another great workout.

ill have to remind myself that i train 3 times a week full body, i used to train legs for example once a week with about the same intensity and now im doing legs 3x a week, pretty good. not sure how long i will stick to this but a couple of months at least.

gym observations:

some dude doing deads and dropping the bumper plates every rep to the floor, not sure what the point is in doing that? then he was on his knees doing shrugs in the squat-rack, again making  a lot of noise.

i remember when gyms that didnt allow cellphones... those were the days.

pretty good workout. again! not much to say. im going very close to failure in several exercises... oh well i hope my recovery is enough.
dont get a whole lot of doms no matter what i do.
will exchange plate shrugs for shrugs with shrug bar.

another day at the gym

felt very strong in the back.

then i did chest, very easy to try to put bigger plates on but its obviousy i need to move slowly here.
did some overhead presses afterwards and felt weak so im skipping them altogether.
strong in laterals.
legs felt very stiff and weak, still manage to do what i intended to do but i cant say it went up without a struggle... talking about leg press here.
hams felt better.

gym observations:

the usual crowd of cellphone teens.

a new thing that irritates me are couples. skinny guys with their fat ass girlfriends. not sure what they think they will accomplish by squats etc there fat ass is just gonna get bigger.

today it is exactly 2 months since i started training - nov 17th to jan 17th  Cool
might not be a big deal to some but for me consistency is key.
ive made some pretty good gains in those 2 months both size and strength wise, in fact ive probably gained as much as one can expect in 2 months, after all, its just 2 months so  there's only so much you can do.

todays workout:

back - moving up to fast in weights, form suffers so have to back, added another set so 4 total.
incline bench is good, cant move up in weight, impatient, but at last im not struggling with the current weight as i was a few weeks ago.
lateral feels strong and good.
leg press cant move up there either, really tough at current weight, wish it felt easier i just have to wait it out until i get stronger... i go really deep so thats part of it.
hamstrings im at my max now so stick with that for a while.

gym observations:

some dude spent a good 20 minutes warming up before deadlifts then he disappeared. maybe he got too tired to actually lift?

the usual crowd doing benches, i just dont know if they progress... i dont think theyreall focused on working their chest, more a strength game for them, but theyre so weak i dont see the point.

really tired today.

decided to lower the weights slightly, sometimes it's good to do that to check your form.

did rows, rows machine, chest press, laterals, leg press, seated leg curls. skipped hammers and shrugs.

overall pretty good, everything counts even the not 100% times  Cheesy

gym observations: the usual pack of teenagers. i saw a guy with a crossfit t-shirt (the offical logo one) i wished i had the crosshit t-shirt.

back at the gym!!

in good time. when you are out of the gym for a good 10+ days there's quite a risk you wont go for 14 days and then 3 weeks and before you know it you'd be gone for a month or more...

did a pump-day.. did 3-4 sets of 15 on everything. felt pretty good.

gym observations:

more people in the gym, not sure if its because end of january or the time of the day i was there... a couple of pretty strong dudes for once.

ok! i went to the gym.

i did

lat pulldowns - havent done these in a while because of pain in elbows, felt good. did reverse grip.
lat pulldown different angle in a cybex machine.
seated rows.
seated two-cable rows.
incline chest
machine chest
lateral raises
shrugs
bicep curls

all in all felt good, i do slightly more exercises but since i save legs for another day i dont have to worry about that coming next... pretty good mentally.

see no reason why i shouldnt gain some mass on this routine as far as i eat enough so ill work that out next  Wink
