Training: Pull/legs, grip, abs

1.Deadlifts-135x4, 185x3, 225x2, 275x1

those were warmups, decided to try deads while standing on my platform. Makes the ROM about 4.5 inches greater. I used 225x12. These felt good. I will do them again next dead workout.

2.Barbell rows(overhand)- 95x7, 145x7
3.leg curls- 50x7, 75x7

Training: Felt like crap. Have decided to make Thursday a small muscle group day. I will train arms and abs. I will also be training at night starting next week. Want to see if it will make a difference. I am not a morning person!

Only notable lift from today: Close grips- 170x5

Calories: Took down ~5,100 cals

Training: Rest, had baseball practice


Calories: Not Good!:( I was dead tired at like 7:00, so I figured I'd take a nap. Bad idea. I slept for the next 15 hours!!! So total cals for the day was a whopping 2,500.

Training: Rest day

Calories: ~5,100

Training: Back, biceps, grip

1.Deadlifts on block-135x6, 185x3, 225x2, 275x9:D
2.Wide grip chins- BWx10
3.Barbell rows(overhand)-95x6, 145x7
4.Barbell curls-45x7, 60x5, drop set-75x8 65x3 55x3 45x4
5.hammer curls-20'sx5, 35'sx7
6.grip work- went up to 275lbs on overhand bb holds

After the deads I was shot!! I was huffing and sweating like a mofo! I wanted to do more sets, but I was so shot I just did 1 work set of everything. Very happy about the deads. I will continue to use the deads on the block until I get up to 315 for reps. I will then go back to deads off the floor, hopefully much stronger than before.

Calories: ~4,100

Training: push

1.Inc. DB press-30'sx8, 45'sx6, 60'sx3, 75'sx7, 80'sx5
2.Seated DB press-25'sx8, 40'sx5, 60'sx6, 65'sx2
3.Close grip bench-95x6, 135x3, 165x4

Felt great on incline and seated db presses. Most weight I've ever used on those. Close grip suffered because of the other 2 exercises, but it was worth it.

Tomorrow is squat day!!!

How's it feel to realize that the only exercise you had a remote chance of winning is now one of my best?

You didn't really think you were going to win, did you? tuttut

Calories: :( bad day. ~3,800 cals

Training: :( :( :( Legs

1.squats- not good, went for 3 plates, didn't happen
2.Started to do some calf raises, felt like I was gonna pass out, cut it short.

Training: Push
(only work sets shown)
1.Incline bench press-170x5, 185x1
3.Overhead db ext.-60x11(pause) x4, (pause) x3

Workout was quick! Those were my best lifts to date on inclines. I am going to stick with them for a bit.

Training: Pull

1.Deadlifts on block-300x8(sweet :D )
2.Wide grip chins-BWx8(shot!)
3.Close grip cable rows-160x6, 160x6

I will be doing 2 pull workouts per week, so I will only be doing a row and grip work with deads from now on. The other day, I will do chins and a different row. This should be better, considering I am shot from deads.
