What happened to doing heaviest weight first?

03-17-2002, 10:40 PM
I agree orange, I never use them anyway. Rookie: that was my last workout, from now on I do heaviest first.

Why do you lower the weight? I wouldn't..

03-19-2002, 04:32 PM
cause my first set is my max weight, it's been suggested by several people in this forum.

03-19-2002, 04:34 PM
why not do..

80 x 6, 80 x 6, 8 x 5

Try something like that...you'll get stronger quicker then dropping down to 70. At least in my experience. Go for your highest weight, and highest reps, always...

03-19-2002, 06:17 PM
Cause I go 80x6, and I can't get any more at 80, maybe 1 if I was lucky. I'm actually going to bump the 2nd set up to 75 next time though, 70 on the second set was too light.

So am i kicking you ass?

Impressive DB press man.

How do you do them DB skulls? lying? how's your grip on them and DB placing?

03-22-2002, 05:36 PM

03-22-2002, 08:44 PM
for skulls I do them sitting up. I put one hand right against the inside of the weighted part of the db, and the other part of my hand bracing it, so it don't slip.

Thanks for the compliment...orange is at the same spot too...

Alright here I go now, today I'm gonna try to get the 85s for at least 2 and try to get another half rep out. Not sure if I'll be able to cause I mistakingly tried to get a rep out yesterday at 85..hoep that doesn't hurt my efforts now.

March 6, 2002 Chest and Triceps
Notes: wooooohoooooooo. Alright, first things first, I did some heavy weights not on first sets today, as is obvious. This was not intentional, I just happened to gain some strength since last workout in several exercises.

Although I got the 85's for 5 I didn't feel as if I was going deep enough. I definetly went deep enough for it to be considered a rep., but I like going a tad lower than most. Also my left arm was much farther away from my body than my right. On declines the 80*4 set, on the last rep my left shoulder tweaked out so I stopped there, I think I may have slightly pulled my left anterior delt, other than that, all is well.

DB BENCH: 85*5 75*8 70*7
DB DECLINE: 75*9 80*4
Cable crosses: 8*9 9*14

Rev. Grip bench pressing: 70*15 90*10 100*6
Skulls: 90*11 95*8
Kickbacks: 27.5*7 22.5*8
1 hand underhand ext: 5*7

03-26-2002, 04:38 PM
Doing good.

03-26-2002, 04:42 PM
thanx man, I'm sure you'll rebound fast. Try to relax before you go to bed, don't be doing something, and then just jump in the sack..

03-26-2002, 04:46 PM
Yeah, i have a nice week of sleeping eating to do.

03-26-2002, 07:45 PM
Only 15 away, nice increases.:thumbup:

April 2, 2002 Chest and Triceps

Notes: I missed on the 90's, and I was a little hungry at the beginning, quite hungry by the end. Didn't let that stop me from having a great workout though. Tri's are fried again. For the first time in my life I actually feel like I have larger pecs, first time I've felt like I've got something out in front of me..it's a cool feeling
P.S. reverse close girp benching still creams my tri's

DB Benching: 90-miss 85*6 75*9 70*8
DB Decline: 80*6 75*7
Cable X's: 9*7 8*10

Is it tough keeping two journals in sync?

04-02-2002, 09:13 PM

April 10, 2002 Chest and Triceps
Notes: sh*t sh*t sh*t F*CK! OOOOOOOOOH man. Talk about crashign and burning. Orange the contest might not be over yet, worst chest workout ever. Every few months my chest just gives out on me, sometimes for a couple weeks. Hopefully this was just a one time set back, but still. I had enough food in me, I slept fine, I was well hydrated...sh*t.

04-10-2002, 02:25 PM
Oh, and on declines, I dropped the dbs after my 2nd set, and was resting, I went to unhook my feet and for some reason I got dizzy and fell off over one side, I think I might've actually flipped over. fvck

04-10-2002, 02:30 PM
Can I be in the contest?

04-11-2002, 12:56 PM
what weight you at for db pressing? I need someone to compete against...

04-11-2002, 01:29 PM
how about the best increases in a couple of lifts? anything but db press

04-11-2002, 01:59 PM
dude, orange I have an idea,

ok, so assuming this past week was a fluke... it's gonna take me 15 more lbs to get to the 100's. let's see how long it takes me to get there. Then when you're better, and get back to the weight you were pressing before, see if you can get to the 100's quicker. that way the competition is still on, and we don't have to both be actively doing presses, so you can take time recovering.

04-11-2002, 05:51 PM
works for me.

04-11-2002, 05:52 PM
hi Accipiter :)

04-11-2002, 07:29 PM
hey! it's kimpy! how'd you get in here? I specifically told the door-man not to let you in.

May 1, 2002 Chest and Triceps

Notes: the + signs indicate I needed a spotter to help with those reps after the + sign. I'm takin it easy, as I did awful my last workout, before I got sick. This tuesday I'll go for the 85's again, not sure if I'll get them or not. Hope so.
