I had a journal here before, but it's kinda old lol.

I figure the more I post my workouts up, the more I will stay motivated to lift.


Flat Barbell Bench: 145x8

Incline DB Bench: 40x8/ 45x8/ 50x5/ 55x5

Squats: 205x5/ 225x5/ 235x5

Snatch: 95x1/ 95x1/ 95x1/ 95x1

Weighted Dips: +10x10/ +25x10

Weighted Chins +10x3/ +10x3

I did a couple other insignificant things. My workouts usually don't have this much volume lol.

Today in practice we did 5 fronts, 10 powers, 5 glides, then 5 more of whatever else we needed to work on.

Then we did about 10 minutes of form work on discus, and that concluded the practice.

I was consistently throwing about 32 feet, my furthest throw was probably between 35 and 36. I hope to get that to 40-42 by the end of the season.

Lifting tomorrow. :)

Flat Bench: 145x5/ 165x3/ 185x1

Amazing workout. I'm gonna take it a little easy next time though. I was worn out.

03-07-2008, 03:33 PM
Power Cleans: 135x5/ 145x5/ 155x5

Power Cleans: 135x5/ 145x5/ 165x3

Bench Press: 135x10/ 145x8/ 155x6

Squats: 185x8/ 205x5/ 225x5/ 235x5

They closed the weight room early today for whatever reason, so I couldn't get my whole workout in. Everything felt light but I was just tired. The whole losing an hour's sleep screwed me up a little.

03-12-2008, 06:21 PM
Deadlifts: 225x5/ 245x5/ 290x3- barely

Bench Press: 155x5/ 175x3/ 190x1

Piece of cake except deadlifts. I really struggled with that last rep.

03-14-2008, 04:18 PM
Barbell Snatch: 95x1/ 95x1/ 95x1/ 95x1

OH Squats: 45x5/ 55x5

Barbell Squats: 185x8

Powercleans: 135x5/ 135x5

Clean and Jerk: 135x1

I was tired as hell today. This was a slow, tiring workout.

03-17-2008, 05:20 PM
Power Cleans: 155x5/ 155x5

Squat: 185x5/ 205x5

Bench Press: 135x5/ 145x5

Took it easy and made the workout really short today. I was going on the 3rd hour after I ate my pre-workout meal which was not good. I doubt I will lift heavy on Wednesday either because of time constraints. Friday will be when I go for some PRs unless we have a lot of time to lift on Wednesday.

Good workout. Next post will be in a week hopefully. I'm probably gonna put on a few pounds on my cruise lol.

My attempt at a "DE" workout:

Power Cleans: 165x1/ 165x1/ 165x1/ 165x1/ 165x1

Dumbbell Flat Bench: 40x5/ 40x5/ 40x5/ 40x5/ 40x5

Squats: 205x2/ 205x2/ 205x2/ 205x2/ 205x2

Dips: +25x10/ +35x5/ +45x5

Hammer Chins: +5x4/ +10x3/ +15x3

Cleans were good and fast. Bench was obv. not that explosive. Squats felt good and explosive. I used a more "athletic" stance than usual. Dips got easier as they went on. I got a good stretch while doing chins.

Overall: A: this was a good workout coming off of break. I'm gonna try and "hulk up" now. I picked up some BCAAs to sip during school, some creatine mono and I have upped my caloric intake. I will buy some more whey when I run out as well.

Nice job dude. Staying consistent. Keep it up man.

04-08-2008, 03:48 PM

Sandbag runs: 70lbs. x 100ft x 4 sets total

Truck Push: 1x100ft

I am starting to lift weights/ do other workouts early in the morning, so I am struggling with the time change. I was spent after this workout.

04-09-2008, 06:37 AM
Bench Press: 135x5 (warmup)/ 145x5/ 165x3/ 185x1

Front Squat: 155x5 :(

Thick Bar Push Press: 92x8/ 92x7/ 92x8

BTN Press: 95x8

1 mile run:
Untimed. I was dogging it regardless. I gotta get in better shape haha.

Bench- easy. Front squats- my back was extremely tight and it was very uncomfortable (and I thought I was going to injure myself). I just have to do a few warmup sets next time. OH pressing felt good. With the thick bar, my forearms got a good workout. Running- I am out of shape.

Overall: B+

04-10-2008, 05:30 PM
Flying Sprints

320m total

Good workout. I felt fast lol.

04-11-2008, 05:48 PM
One Arm DB Bench: 45x8/ 45x8

Chins: BWx6/ BWx3/ BWx3/ BWx3

Thick Bar Deadlifts: 172x5/ 192x5/ 202x3

BTN Press: 85x8/ 85x8

OK workout. I felt rushed. I just picked up the book Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kubik. Should be a good read, and as the weather gets warmer you will probably see me outside doing more sandbag workouts, etc.

04-15-2008, 04:48 PM
Sand Bag Runs: 70lbs. x 100m over each arm

Truck Push: 1x about 2 feet

Didn't get a lot of sleep last night. Sandbag was good, truck pushes not so much. I just couldn't get it to budge for some reason (no I didn't have it in park).

04-16-2008, 06:34 PM

Nice workout. A.

Flying Sprints:

For whatever reason I threw up the grape juice/ creatine JUST before I went out, so I just slurped another serving down and went right outside. I threw my pwo shake up too and did the same thing and just made another one. Workout was good though, not tiring at all.
