    thanks terry! no showing off intended, i always do that before i dead or row. i used to wear much longer lacrosse shorts which required the hike up for unimpaired movememnt.. but they got NASTY.. but the habit remains. i'm such a creature of habit

    thanks a ton guys. the support means a lot to me, really.

    so im thinking about adding an accessory day on weds for abs, arms and maybe some rear delt work. maybe ill think up something else to throw in.

    on another note, my neighbor -- some guy from south america -- who bought a white 328 bmw this week, just came over to ask me to lend him $20. como se dice "HELL NO?"

    bahah.

    seriously. that takes balls. i'm not even what i would consider acquaintances

    wanted to mention that i tried the belt much lower.. just above my hip but below my rib cage. the only prob was that it slid up a bit when i bent over. however, it was comfortable and effective.

    That does take some balls. I wouldn't go up to a neighbor and ask to borrow money. I did meet one of my neighbors by asking to borrow a socket once. We were both working on cars out back, I got pissed, broke down and went and asked. Turned out he needed some help pulling the engine from his Camaro SS that he races at the local drap strips. I gladly accepted that offer to work on that beast with him. cool guy. also, glad that belt situation is looking up.

    I hate your quad development.

    I'm wondering why you keep bothering with the belt if it seems to be bothering you?

    -The above comes off as critical and I have no idea why. NOT critiquing, just curious.

    because i bought it and im stubborn to a fault!! it looks cool too

    it does help its just that when i bend over for deads, i lose some tightness because i cant reach the bar without exhaling and releasing the posturing i setup

    so.. im going to try pushing shoulder day to today, adding arms/abs on thurs and squats on friday as normal. i am pretty worn out atm so we'll see how it goes. i suspect it could just be my trap/back doms from yesterday making me feel this way, which wont really prevent anything related to shoulders.

    Excellent 405. The hitch is a b!tch, so be it. It doesn't mean you didn't pull it off of the floor and get it up. I don't think the hitch makes any DL a bust, sometimes it's just awkward when you have a good deal of weight.

    Quads do look very sick during the set up! They do over power your arms a bit, as do mine. What do your arms measure when flexed?

    thanks mark!

    thanks scott, very much appreciated. im just under 16" flexed right now both arms. i never really did direct bicep volume... and they are very underdeveloped imo. triceps, on the other hand, are pretty developed. i dont have a full horseshoe, but i think thats genetics.. possibly a shape thing. i am working on it. i still do low volume per se, but I am doing it like 3-4 times per week. we'll see how that goes... scott.. afterthought, arm underdevelopment doesnt bother me nearly as much as a shoulder press that is comparable to my bench. i mean wtf. having good shoulder development is nice and all but i want balance too. i have pretty respectable width... but like no depth except in my hips/glutes which are comically large relative to my strength. fat storage genetics FTL

    so moving shoulder day to today.... maybe not the best call. still a very good workout tho

    rotator warmup

    db oh press
    25sx10
    40sx5
    55sx5
    70sx5
    85sx5
    100sx3.5, fail left, lockout right
    100sx3, fail on 4 for both
    90sx7
    80sx9
    70sx16 or 17, cant remember

    standing mili, collar bone to lockout each rep
    65x5
    95x5
    135x5
    155x5, belt
    175x3, belt, fail on 4

    arnold press (idea stolen from invain's journal)
    50sx10x2
    70sx10
    70sx7, fail

    single arm lat raise
    30x10/10
    30x10/10
    30x8/8

    stretching

    done.

    my right hip flexor is tweaked..... RICEing.... i think my hyperextending when i dead is aggravating it?? no idea. no ME effort next week on deads. heavy triple

    Tri's and abs? Rough? It shouldn't be too bad for a small workout. That leg workout coming up might be tough, looking to do that one tomorrow? You could always push it back 1 day.

    i was just abnormally tired. not sure why. sleep has been good... workout was fine. im thinking about adjusting my split like so to add some more arm work

    mon: chest, indirect tri, direct bi
    tues: dead/back
    weds: heavy ab, direct bi, cardio
    thur: shoulders
    fri, squats/lunges, direct bi
    sat: bw ab, direct tri, cardio
    sun: cardio

    dunno. i dont want to do tris on weds because i want them primed for shoulders. dont want the source of failure to be from tris. moving up shoulders to weds will not work.. it was fine as it was before.

    ------------------

    ab work to
    +25x8

    tris
    4 sets of 10

    rotator band work

    20m stairmaster

    leg feels kinda tweaked. im starting to think i strained my groin not my hip flexor. clearly its not a serious strain since im squatting, stairmastering and deading...

    You should act like an interested client, via phone or email of course, just to lure her back in to the gym at this ungodly hour. Goodnight.
