flat bb bench: -4@185
peck deck fly: -4@270

standing military press: 3@100, 4@90 + two cheat reps at the end

today was back day

weighted chins: 6@60, 4@60 (slow negative on last rep of both sets) this dosen't seem right

dumbell rows: -5@85 (tried new technique. partner would help me for the positive part then would pull down on the db and i would try to pull it back up. it was very hard and i think it worked well)

sleep: 8 hours, i didn't eat well today but there's still time to make it a bit better

**workout was good, still can't do deads because of back injury but its getting better and i might start back light next week.**

today was pull day and it sucked

deadlift: this was the first time i did deads in 3 months because of an injury. well my form was terrible. my traps have gotten weak so my upper back was rounding really bad and my lower back is out of shape so i did. 7@165 and coulden do anymore because my form was too bad

chinups: 7@25, 6@25 this is worse than last time
dumbell rows: 9@75

sleep: 8 hours

**this was the worst workout of my life. i had a bad sleep, i was ****ed off all day, my diet was terrible, and my workout was horrible. my next one better be really good to make up for this horrible workout**

today was march break workout #1... holy ****

i did a workout based on the workout that ian duckett did in his aritcle on the site. it was hell. it went like this:

squat: 20@95
leg extention: 5@75 with 4 negatives at the end. total failure
squat: 15@95 (failure)
flat bench: 6@135 (super slow reps with 3 negatives at the end)
chins: 4
dips: 4 with like 8-10 negatives at the end
machine shoulder press: 1@90 with 3 negatives
squat: 6@95 (this was supposed to be leg press but some woman invaded, and took over the leg press machine)

thats it. no rest between sets. all sets except the first 20 rep squat were to failure.

sleep: 7 hours. diet really good. so far this march break i have been eating a lot. i love it.

**workout was hell. i wanted to shoot myself in the face. i almost puked and i had to lay on the floor for 5 min and then i managed to make it to the incline bench where i stayed for the next 20 min.**
