Hey, you...yes I'm talking to you, the person who just clicked on this thread! ;)

Hello and welcome to The Maestro's online training journal, where you will get an exclusive look at the way I train, what I eat, and what my philosophy on life is all about!

I hope you will enjoy your stay. I am looking forward to getting some feeback from you guys.

First things first, though. Have two quick questions before I get started.

1) Would any of you fine gentlemen care to inform me which website is the best for purchasing a weight belt ( the kind where I can put weights on, for dips and chins, I already have a regular weight belt)? I have searched a lot of sites and found different prices and different materials that they are made from.

2) I am wondering if I should buy some wrist weights. I’m not sure if you know what I mean by “wrist weights”, so I will explain. They are little 2.5lb weights that you put on kind of like a watch. Now, the reason why I am asking is because the gym that I am a member of only has DB s that go up by 5lbs. So my question is, if I put on one of these tiny 2.5lbs wrist weights, and I pick up a 85lb DB, together it will be 87.5lbs, correct? For some reason I’m not sure if with the wrist weights I would actually be lifting an extra 2.5lbs, because it’s on the wrist, like a watch.

Before going any further, I’d like to talk about a book which I have recently finished reading. I’m sure some of you guys have read it, too, so I’d like to get your opinions on it. I just finished reading “Maximize Your Training” Edited by Matt Brzycki. After reading this book I have changed the way I train, essentially I have lowered the quantity of sets I do and the amount of days I train.

Interesting quote from the book that I‘d like to share: “Research has shown repeatedly that it takes only one properly performed set to stimulate improvements in strength.”

Another quote which I found to be worthy of note: “Intensity - that is, the amount of effort applied to each set - supersedes volume when it comes to producing results.” That’s just two of the many things that I have learned from this book (by far the best book on working out).

I have come up with a new and improved plan - both for training and diet.

THE PLAN: Up to this point I was doing low sets, only 2 sets per exercise, so now I have basically cut the amounts of sets I do by half.

My workout split is:

Monday - Legs
Thursday - Upper body
Friday - abs (ha, takes like 5min)

Before that I was on a 3 day split:
Monday - Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
Wednesday - Legs
Friday - Back/Traps/Rear delts/Biceps/Forearms

I just started training this new way about 3 weeks ago………and already my lifts have gone up!

O.K., so that’s all for the training section. Now for the diet.

I think that the largest factor that was holding me back from gaining muscle in the gym was actually my diet. I wasn’t eating too little….I was eating too much! Let me clarify. When I first joined this site everyone was like “you have to eat, eat and eat, and eat more, its all about the diet.”

But not many people talked about the intensity! So I ate 6 clean meals a day thinking that I would get big just from the diet (and training of course). I did get big….but in the wrong place! LOL!

At one point I was like 245lbs, and I just barely got accepted to the navy because my body fat level was at like 22%. I did lose about 60lbs in boot camp, but I also lost a lot of muscle and strength. After boot camp I was still obsessed with my body building diet, taking food with my everywhere, the store, the movie theater, all kinds of different establishments. But I wasn’t putting as much effort into my training as I was into my diet.

All right, so you’re wondering where I am going with all of this, and rightly so.

The point I’m trying to make here is that it’s not just about the diet (I‘m talking about my own experiences here, not other WBB members), it’s also about the intensity!
I’m putting a lot more effort into training now, and less into my diet.
I’m lifting more weight and doing more reps each time I step into the gym.

I eat 5 or 6 times a day (clean meals still), but I’m not obsessed with food anymore, like I used to be. If I miss a meal it’s NO BIG DEAL. I’m no longer bothered by that, thinking that I HAVE to eat every 2 to 2.5 hours, nothing is going to happen if my next meal is going to be in 3 or EVEN 3.5 hours. Being able to eat whenever I want feels great, I actually feel like I have more power now.

Know why? Because I’m the boss, apple sauce! That’s right. That ain’t not typo.
I’m not a slave to the magazines’ “you have to eat every 2 hours” articles anymore.

I will officially start the journal, posting my diet and training exercises on Monday, because that‘s when I work out.

Stay tuned and feel free to post any comments and/or advice.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, one more thing.

I’m selling two books, “Ultimate Bodybuilding” by Joe Weider and “The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding” by Arnold Schwarzenegger. They are used (obviously) and have things highlighted and circled in them. Both books are huge, and by huge I mean like 500 and 700 pages, respectively. They have hundreds of pics and details on how to do the exercises, so they are perfect for beginners.

Welcome to the journal section :)

btw i'd be interested in those books but i live miles away in the UK :(.

How much you selling them for and how much are they worth new? (gotta work out if P&P would be worth it)...

This......is a damn good idea. In fact, I'm surprised I haven't seen it mentioned around elsewhere. I could do with a pair of 2.5's and a pair of 5's, myself.

Ok, I'm not gonna knock it too much, but I'm no fan of the HIT school in general and Brzycki in specific.

Additionally-- one set can stimulate an improvement in strength, sure. However-- does that mean it causes the *best possible* improvement? Even with respect to recovery capability, my thinking (and personal results) says no. Just something to consider, though-- if you're liking it, more power to ya. :)

Another quote which I found to be worthy of note: “Intensity - that is, the amount of effort applied to each set - supersedes volume when it comes to producing results.” That’s just two of the many things that I have learned from this book (by far the best book on working out).

Again, that's somewhat true, but not the whole picture. The HIT Jedi tend to focus too much on failure as being THE cause of hypertrophy, when in fact its only the end result of the processes that actually *do* cause growth (those being local, overload-induced fatigue and eccentric damage)

But hey, like I said-- if you're enjoying it and its working for you, then best of luck! :)

WARM UP: 10min cardio

Lat pulldown: Warm up: (60 x 6) (60 x 6) (190 x 5)
Bench Press: Warm up: Bar x 6 (95 x 6) (200 x 4)

One-arm Hammer Strength Row: (145 x 6)
Incline DB press: (86.5 x 5)

Seated Pulley Row: (180 x 6)
Cable Crossovers: (60 x 9)

DB shoulder press: (66.5 x 5)
DB shrugs: (90 x 9)

Cable side laterals: (31.5 x 7)
Bent-over cable laterals: (26.5 x 7)

CGBP: Warm up: Bar x 6 (165 x 6)
BB curls: Warm up: Bar x 6 (30 x4)

Pulley Pushdown: (80 x 10)


NOTES - Today’s workout was awesome, so I give myself three stars. I used the wrist weights today, I was going to do incline DB press with 87.5lbs, but just couldn’t get it up. I’m cutting right now so on my off days I eat about 100g of carbs. So anyways, I lowered the wrist weights by 1lb to 1.5lbs. I had no problem after that. I left the wrist weights at 1.5lbs (each) and in addition to the incline Db press, I also used them on DB press, side laterals and bent over laterals. If you see an exercise with a low number next to it it means that it was done with one arm at a time. Man, I’m really glad I got the wrist weights - they made a huge difference! You wouldn’t think that 1.5lbs would be much, but it was, I could defiantly feel it. Next week I’m going to try and take it up to 2.0 lbs (if my wrist feels better).

Question: How much does the BB bar weight? I know a standard BP bar weights 45lbs. The BB bar is much shorter I noticed.

On the CGBP I went rather “light“ because last week I hurt my right wrist a little when the plates on the right side started to slowly slip of to the side, even though I had the collars on it.

Someone had sabotaged my Bench set up while I was doing the BB curl warm-ups.

(I do the exercises back to back, without any rest, as indicated above). This morning I was sure to check the collars on the bar before performing the CGBP. My wrist feels much better, last week I couldn’t even rotate it and I was afraid it was sprained but it doesn’t hurt now, although it does feel a little “funny” - so I decided to skip the dips and did pulley pushdowns instead. That‘s it for this section.

http://www.aaa-clipart.com/data/anim2/time/an1.gif Crazy Cutting Cycle - This section here is very crucial. I’m using it to keep track of my progress to see how many pounds I have lost, the ultimate goal is to get down to 220lbs in 12 weeks (as indicated by the orange number on the 12th week). Think it can be done? I sure hope so! Weigh in occurs every Monday morning at 7am. 1......235lbs

NOTES - I again gave myself three stars again here because once again my diet was right on track. You probably have noticed that it’s only noon (at the time of this post) and yet I already have listed all of the meals for today. That’s right. Like I said the diet is the easiest part for me and I already have it all figured out, what I’m going to eat today. You also probably noticed that in my first post I talked about eating 5-6 meals a day, and yet right above you just read that I ate 8 times. This isn’t contradiction, however. I can explain all of this confusion. First of all, on workout days, Mondays and Thursdays, I eat a meal (protein shake, oatmeal) right before working out to give my energy and then I have a post workout shake. So that’s two extra meals right there. Also, I always wake up in the middle of the night to take a leak, and afterwards I drink a protein shake. And I don’t count that as a meal. If I didn’t wake up I wouldn’t drink the shake, I wouldn’t set my alarm clock to wake me up at 1am. Also, I kind of enjoy that midnight shake, gives me nice lucid dreams. I’d like to point out that on non training days I do eat 5-6 meals.

So, you’ve decided to come back and check out my journal again, huh? I knew you would be back.

Swole Thanks for the comments. I thought I would spice things up a little after viewing my first post and seeing how boring it was. No wonder not many people responded to it. If I saw that post and how long and plain it looked, I would have stopped reading after like three sentences.

AstronautJones What‘s up, Astronaut Jones?

NateDogg Hey, what’s with the comment with Galileo in it? Lol. Am I supposed to be afraid of Galileo or something? I mean, what’s he gonna do? Call up his boys Copernicus, Kepler, and Brahe and come down here and teach me a lesson with his trusty telescope? I’m just kidding, Galileo! You’re a good guy. You’re all right. In fact, everyone on this site is all right, even the people who enjoy browsing the journal section without leaving any comments (yeah, you know who you are - look at you, you’re doing it right now)!

CoCoa Thanks for the spam! I’d like some more please!

Powerman Thanks for the reply, man, I appreciate it, especially your input on the wrist weights. I drove to the local Walmart to buy the wrist weights, they had several kind to choose from and it took me forever to pick a pair and I started to get irritated. That’s what I hate about shopping, every time I go in to buy something, doesn’t matter if it’s clothes, food, or wrist weights, it takes me forever, I must have been there for like thirty minutes, trying on three different pairs! They had these really nice Golds wrist weights, they just stretched over the wrist, but they were only 1 pound each. So I got a 5lb pair. Each wrist weight has 1-5 1/2lbs weights, so you can adjust the weight from .5 to 2.5lbs on each one.

I get the feeling that you don’t like Brzycki too much, huh? I noticed that you’re not a big fan of HIT, so maybe that has something to do with it, lol. I was just merely stating that I am willing to try HIT to see what kinds of results I can gain, I’m not trying in any way to convince people that they should do HIT. Notice that the question isn’t whether or not HIT is a good training method for others, the question is why is the HIT the method of choice for The Maestro. I will now list all the reasons why I chose to do HIT (with some of my own variations of course).

The Reasons are:

1) Genetics. Some people have better genetics than others. I am one of those people who was not blessed with good genetics. I will give you an example. Before I started doing HIT, I took a week off, actually I took two weeks off because I train every muscle once a week. So I took two weeks off, and when I came back to the gym my squat decreased by 30lbs. 30lbs!!! And I ate the same food, therefore eating the same amount of carbs and protein. I also slept the same. When you work out, does your body really know what muscles are being worked out? Or does it simply know that it’s being stressed? Lets say you work out 5 days a week, doing one muscle group a day. Is it fair to say that the person with better genetics will get better results following that split then a person who has weaker genetics (because of faster recovery time)? I think so. This is one of the reasons why I chose to train only two days a week now.

2) The next reason is that by doing only one set per exercise I am able to get more psyched up for it. For example, when I go to the gym with my notebook and I have written down that I’m going to do Incline DB Press with 85s, then I know that I only have one chance to do it, and I give everything I have into that one set.

3) I have tried a lot of different training splits, and I’m open minded into trying this one, too. When I first started working out I used to do the Flex workouts, then I switched to the ones from the Weider book, followed by Arnold’s split from his encyclopedia. (Yes, I know that they are all idiotic now.)

Makes sense? I am going to give this style of training six months, at the end of the six months I will compare my weight and my lifts, and if they have improved greatly I will continue training that way, if they haven’t, then I will simply make a new plan.

I'm peacing out, boys.http://webgrafx-fx.com/Graphics/GIF_Animations/Transportation/Air_Travel/Air_Scenes/rkflyby.gif

Being able to eat whenever I want feels great, I actually feel like I have more power now.

NOTES - To begin with, I rated my workout today with two stars because I felt like I had no energy. No energy at all I repeat! I guess that's what happens when I am cutting and restrict carbs. On a couple of exercises I had to reduce the weight big time What I have found out the hard way is that leg day requires a lot of carbs! As a result, my workout suffered a little because I was unable to use more weight. However, I think I did all right with the situation (diet wise) I am in. I understand that it's not possible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. I did a drop set for my calves, which really made them burn nicely. I am still unsatisfied with my squat. I use a wide stance, putting my heals on 5lb plates, and I squat deep - all the way. I remember doing 3 plates on each side on the smith machine. I used to use the smith machine on a lot of exercises which I won't even mention...but I have stopped using it. That thing is so evil. You wouldn't think that it's so evil because of the way it looks, but it's evil all right, kinda like clowns.

Are they really that happy on the inside?

I will tell you one thing, though, once I am done with this cutting phase, which might not even take 12 weeks, I am going to hit the carbs and squat harder then Roman Polanski hits on underaged girls.

Question: How much does the Barbell bar for curling weight? I know a standard BP bar weights 45lbs. The BB bar is much shorter I noticed. I need clarification on this.

NOTES - Diet again was right on track. The diet you see above is typically what I eat on training days. My non training diet looks pretty much the same, although it is important I think to point out that I eat about half the carbs, but the protein stays about the same.

I kind of like a cutting diet, compared to a bulking diet, because I eat less, and spend less time on eating, although I don't like the lack of energy. I have always thought that carbs were over rated, but now I realized that carbs are good!

I did a weigh in today and was very surprised to find myself at 222lbs (wasn't soaking wet because I had a towel wrapped around).

"Hmmmmmm, 235 to 222 in seven days sounds a little fishy", you say?

No shintock!

I agree. I don't know how to explain it. I mean what do you want me to say? I KNOW that I didn't lose 13lbs of fat in seven days. My guess is that like half of that was water weight, the other half fecal matter and that leaves the fat....although I'm not exactly sure how much fat that is, that is why you see I am weighing myself once a week for a couple of weeks, to get an average I guess. I will say that my pants seem a little looser now and although I can't see my 6-pack, I can see some lines in there.

Maybe I originally wasn't 235lbs to begin with?

Maybe I was 230lbs? Oh, who cares. The only thing that matters is that my weight has gone down.

All I can say with 100% certainity is that I'm dropping more pounds then J Lo has dropped boyfriends.

Hey - look at you, you're back checking out the journal again. LOL. Wondering what I've been up to eh?

Well read on!

What do you think of the new icon located by the remarks? If you don't want to get poked like the philsbury dough boy I suggest you leave a comment.

BTW, the above comment was meant in a non sexul way....unless you are a girl reading this, but that is a whole diffrent story.

Ritzol Thanks for the lengthy response. I really appreciated it and I was wondering if maybe you could elaborate on it a little. Just joking, "Sugar Rachie!" You're the greatest feel free to post in my journal any time.

AstronautJones Earth to Astronaut Jones?

NateDogg Hey, I agree Galielo's journal is awesome and interesting, but this "competition" you speak of is rather silly. I mean competition is good and all, but not on an online journal forum where people post their feelings and thoughts. There is no competiton on here as far as I'm concerned.

JustinF Hey a new poster, thanks for the comment. It takes about 10min to make a journal entry. Alls I do is "edit/delete", put in the new data and respond to the comments, and "copy/paste" it. Sounds easy, huh? Well it can get tricky (sometimes), I mean the layout is over four pages long.

ericg Hi, what's up? Thanks for the compliment. This doesn't have to do anything with showgirls, actually this doesn't have to to with anything at all, but I will talk about it anyways because this is my journal after all, my brother's friend gave him a web link that shows this girl from our school (who graduated last year) giving this guy a BJ!! Mommy and daddy are sooooooooooo proud, I bet. I'm looking at the year book right now and looking at her pic on the website. Can you say "sko"? LOL. PM me if you want the address.

At this point I'd like to talk about what I've been up to.

Not much.

I have this whole week off and all I'm gonna do is study study and study!

Today I went job hunting. Went to the restaurant, "Cooker" that's like 3min away from me and I got a job application there. The girl working there told me to come back "Between 2 and 4pm". So I'm there at like 2 tomorrow to turn it in.

My bro and I also went over to the mall to look for jobs.

Oh man - so many MILFs there! I kid you not!

Damn!

I don't think MILFs work. Seriously. The place was crowded with them. Anyways, we made our way through the mall, visited my bro's girlfriend who works at "Dapy", where even with her discount everything still costs more then it does at Walmart or Target.

Before moving on we went to the Discovery store where I sat for like 10min on one of those vibrating chairs. I wasn't looking to buy, just to test out their products you see. I think that if I get a job at the mall they will be seeing a lot more of me there.

We also got applications at Sharper Image. Now that's a cool store I'd like to work at, so many cool electronic toys there. They are hiring "sales associates". I think I might have to polish up my social skills a little. I mean I can't just go in and be like "HEY, MAN, BUY THIS KEY CHAIN LOCATER OR I BREAK YOUR FACE!" LOL.

My brother was like "hey, you apply at Cooker and I'll apply at Sharper Image because they won't hire two brothers here." I was like WTF.

WTF?

I'm gonna apply at both! Sucker! I'm gonna apply at both and then give him a swirley when he comes back home! LOL

I'm peacing out, boys.http://webgrafx-fx.com/Graphics/GIF_Animations/Sports/Running/run-man-gold.gif

WARM UP: 10min cardio

Lat pulldown: Warm up: (60 x 6) (60 x 6) (180 x 5)
Bench Press: Warm up: Bar x 6 (95 x 6) (200 x 4)

Bent-over cable laterals: (26.5 x 7)

CGBP: Warm up: Bar x 6 (158 x 6)
DB incline curls: Warm up: 20s x 6 (31.5 x4)

NOTES - O.K. Today is Friday so why the hell does it say Thursday above? I'll tell you why. I was gonna post yesterday but my stupid brother wouldn't let me on, so finally I was like screw it I'll do it tomorrow. But pretend it's still Thursday today.

Anyways, eating less carbs has forced me to use less weight on certain exercises, I especially noticed this on the DB shoulder press. Also, my right wrist still feels funny on certain exercises...so I guess it must be sprained because it's been feeling this way for like three weeks now.

I just work around it. For example, I skipped the DB shrugs. I didn't think that having 90s pulling on my arms was such a good idea, with the situation I am in.

Quick note on the wrist weights. Man, I love these things! They kick ass, I'm going to start doing all upper body exercises with these babies on.

Oh yeah, and I gave myself two stars because my friggin' wrist hurts and I didn't have that much energy.

The thing is, I can really feel them when they are on, even when I have them set to only 1.5lbs each. Like if I do DB shoulder press with the wrist weights and a DB, and then I take them off, and just do the press with the DBs, they feel MUCH lighter, even though it's not even that much.

Man I love fooling my body like that! I am such a Dualist, lol.


Question: My new dip belt just came in like 10min ago, and I am wondering how exactly do I wear it? When I put it on, it falls of, do I just take the chain and put it through the loop and then back to the other loop and close it? Double or single loop it? I can understand single looping it and doing dips at an angle (for the chest), I can see how it won't fall of then...but what about doing dips with my body being straight (triceps). What about chin-ups? People I need to know these kinds of things.

http://www.aaa-clipart.com/data/anim2/time/an1.gif Crazy Cutting Cycle - This section here is very crucial. I’m using it to keep track of my progress to see how many pounds I have lost, the ultimate goal is to get down to 220lbs in 12 weeks (as indicated by the orange number on the 12th week). Think it can be done? I sure hope so! Weigh in occurs every Monday morning at 7am. 1......235lbs

http://webgrafx-fx.com/Graphics/GIF_Animations/People/Men/Real_Life/See-You.gif Recently Revived Remarks ©

Back again, eh?

All right, before I respond to all of the replies I must say that I am in great pain right now. Exteme pain. Pain so painful that just reading this next section you will be in pain. That's pretty painful.

My right testicle is ******* killing me!

I know it sounds funny but it is true.

Here's the lowdown:

I was laying on my bed (on my back) reading about the new C6 (500hp BTW) in the latest issue of Motor Trend that I have just received the other day, when I decided to get up and to go to the bathroom to take care of some business....and when I got up all of a sudden I felt this immense pain shooting right near where my boys hang.

I then carefully made my way to the bathroom, taking small steps and making sure I didn't apply any weight to my right leg. Once I arrived in the bathroom I proceeded to do #1...and I thought I was going to pass the **** out!!!

You see I was seeing stars, big bright ones, feeling dizzy, feeling like I was going to sell the Buick, the whole nine yards - I was holding on to the walls and everything.

So now I'm on here writing the latest entry in my journal and then I'm going to work on my philospohy paper.

What do you guys think it could be???

I don't think it's a hernia.

All I did this morning before the dreadful incident was 20min of light cardio and some ab work. Man I can't even walk up, or now that I think about it, even walk down stairs, because it hurts so much.

I hope it's not what Tom Green had. Hope it's not cancer. You don't think it's cancer, do you?? I hope not. But I thought that cancer was painless, wasnt it? I mean with cancer there's lumps but it doens't hurt? Would my testosterone levels go down if they chop off one of my boys???
OH man that just hurt thinking about it.

I heard on Love Phones that sometimes one of the testicles "twists" somehow. Maybe that's what happened.
I hope it's nothing serious. Who am I kidding of course it could be serious, I mean a guy's boys don't just start hurting for no good reason.

ANYWAYS - I'm just going to take it easy for now and just chill...and if the situation doesn't improve by tomorrow I'm going to go see a doctor.

And if you bastards don't hear from me next week it's because I'm dead.



Exnor Man I'm in so much pain right now what are you talking about overdoing it? Overdoing what? The journal? As you can see it's all divided into small sections: training, diet, notes, etc. Also, if you notice that OWWWWWWWWWWWWW **** it hurts!!!! Must....go...on to next...reply.......

Ritzol You have no idea how much pain I am in right now because you are a girl, but no, thats not me by the recent remarks.....that's me in the avatar. MWAHAHAOOWWWWWWWHAHA!

Mik **** Sweet mother of OWWWWW Thanks for the "anvil comment" Yeah I think it's very appropriate at this time!! And yes please put me out of my misery!

JustinF Hey - thanks for the answer on how much the BB weights. I knew it was somewhere between 15 - 40lbs. Anyways, I stopped doing BB curls for now and have switched to Incline DB curls.

JD77 Hi, what's up? Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I know exactly what You'r talking about, about seeing those stars. Let me tell you, I was seeing a lot of them eariler this morning!

I'm gonna go curl up into a little ball right now and fall asleep, hoping that when I wake up the terrible pain will go away.

I'm peacing out in pain, boys.http://webgrafx-fx.com/Graphics/GIF_Animations/People/Men/Upset/temper-3.gif

You're right, I don't have any idea how much pain you're in because I have no testicles. However, you have no idea how much pain I go through every month. On that note, I'm sure you will be fine..... after all I'm still alive and look at all the times you told me if I didn't go to the doctor I was going to die.. You are so drama oriented sometimes.

By next week I should be able to lift the usual. There were a lot of people in the gym today because I went at 3:30, I usually go in the morning. I’m glad that I went though, I thought I was going to go crazy - not being in the gym for such a long time (ha like over a week). If my stupid wrist wasn’t so funked up I would have lifted a lot more!

Now that it’s getting warmer outside eating chicken and egg whites with rice and ketchup and flaxseed oil makes me wanna gag. Wannagagup.com is how I feel right now!

All right that’s it for this section right now.

That’s right, WBB, TripleP is back! (by popular demand)!

I haven’t been up to much…or maybe I have…who knows…who cares? No one really does, why don’t you bastards post a reply in my journal once in a while? Sometimes I have questions I’d like to have answered, you know what I mean, man?

Well, I have to get going - I just got back from the gym and I need to take a sexy shower before heading off to hell (chemistry class)!

Ritzol Hey, you - thanks for replying to my journal. I’m not sure what you meant by your last comment though?



That slams the lid on yet another successful journal entry, mates, but not to worry! I’ll be stuffing my belly with chicken and rice and before I can put my fork down and take a sip from my trusty water bottle, I’ll be back with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cherrio!

Also, I skipped squats today since my wrist still feels funny, I didn’t want to put any pressure on it.

On the hack squats I had 2 plates on each side and I was aiming at 9 reps…when this personal trainer and this lady came over (to use the machine) and I was like thinking to myself “damn, man, I just got on this machine” so I busted out 3 EXTRA reps, lol. I didn’t know I had it in me.

Then I asked them if they wanted to work in and they said no so I took turned around back to the machine and started stretching (for two minutes) and when I looked back over my shoulder they were gone!

Suckers!

Man, I felt really out of breath today, though, in between sets I could hardly catch my breath - but that’s typical on leg day.

Actually I was out of energy by the end of the workout and after drinking my post workout drink I thought I was going to throw up all over.

But don’t worry I didn’t.

I was so tired afterwards I came home and just laid on my back on the floor for like 10 min before taking a shower.

Oh and I’m not cutting anymore since I lost all that weight in like 2 weeks, lol.

Bonjour!

So…you decided to come back and read my journal again?

“You’re like a fungus, TripleP, you grow on people.” Oh, is that what you think? Cause if that’s what you think then you are right!

I can’t believe that WBB was down earlier though, doesn’t Hulk know that I need to update my journal three times a week? If it’s going to be down at least make it happen on Tuesday or Thursday! Lol.

Okay let me quickly answer my fan mail.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Color=red] Belial Hey! Thanks for also writing in my journal! How is wrist doing? And also how did you hurt it?? And what are you doing to help it heal?

Belial, are you wondering why your name isn’t in red like all the other ones?

The answer is that vBulletin Version 2.2.6 is funked up! Yeah that’s right. It’s messed up!
No matter whose name I reply to first in red - it won’t show up in red. So I don’t know why it does that, all the other names are in red but the first one isn’t.

HULK Hey, mate, did you hear that? What’s going on, is it a glitch in the matrix? Lol.

Borris Hi, what's up? Thanks for writing in my journal. I hurt my wrist doing CGBP…I learned my lesson on how to use proper form on those! I did that like a month ago and my wrist got better but then last week I did something very very stupid.

I did regular barbell curls with my WRIST WEIGHTS on!! I know, I know….and so what happened was I didn’t keep my right wrist straight…and so again when I curled the weight it kind of when back a little.

I talked to you last night and you mentioned that you hurt your wrist, too. That sucks, man. You also said how it never really got better, I don’t want that to happen to me! I do hope it gets better soon.

Carolinagirl ok, important question here. WBB Members - Do you have your text font size set on MEDIUM OR LARGE? I need to know so I can make my journal a better viewing experience!

Rookiebldr Hi! Thanks for the reply! I really do hope that the wrist feels much better real soon, its pissing me off, man!

Budiak I totally dig what you’re saying. If I was you and you were me and I read this journal I would be like “WTF man - this fool is crazy look at all the pretty colors!” lol. Or something like that.

Am I right?

I’m afraid that’s all for now, but fear not my dear readers! I’ll be back faster than Mr. Chris Mason can type in “bull****” after reading a newbie’s post claiming outrageous stats with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cheerio!

Um, I don't know whether it's set to medium or large. Everybody else's journal just looks...well, regular size. Yours looks equivalent to when other people use size 1 in their text. Like this: example of size one text .

It is really cool though - it's just hard to read. But like I said, I have about 10 years on most people in here, so it may just be old age.

How long does it take you to do this, anyhow?

03-28-2003, 10:25 AM
Belial, are you wondering why your name isn’t in red like all the other ones?I was looking at that, and somewhere it appears that a close delimiter is out of place or missing. Either that or vB is thinking that one of the other delimiters is for something else.

Anyway, just wanted to add that this is one crazy journal. Keep it up because this is definitely some good reading!

P rogression - No progression
L ength - 40 min
E nergy - 85%

NOTES - I was doing BB curls when my right wrist started acting funny so I decided to abort that exercise. It felt almost fine on all of the other exercises but not this one.

My pull-ups are pathetic! Do you guys have any tips on how I can perform more pull ups?
I just do two sets of pull-ups, kind of like pulldowns. Should I do it another way?

Should I do like 20 pull-ups? And not count how many sets I do?

I also skipped the hammer curls. Have any of you guys had a wrist injury before? Any tips on how I can make it heal faster?

Vit-B Complex - 1
Multi-Vit. Pack - 1


NOTES - I’m slowly starting to eat more carbs. I try to make breakfast the biggest meal of the day. Right now it’s at about 700 calories, I’m going to bump it up to 900. Any tips on what I should add to my breakfast?

I think I might be eating too much dextrose after working out. I ate 2.5 scoops, I use the same scoop that came with the 10lb of protein from Optimum Nutrition. If I eat 2 scoops of dextrose it doesn’t bother me but 2.5 is just too much, so I’m going to cut back on that.

Hey, what do you think I should eat to bump my carbs up? I eat the usual, brown rice, oatmeal, milk. What else? I know that these are the best carbs to eat, but I can only eat so much (for example I can’t eat like 4 servings of rice in one meal, can’t even eat 3 without forcing it down).

I know - sweet potatoes right?

I’m too lazy for that, man, I want something simple! So, any tips?

Bananas?

I guess I could eat 2 of those, get an easy 60g carbs, what do you guys think?
I don’t seem to have trouble getting enough protein, it’s the carbs that I’m having trouble with!

Hola!

I started my day today by waking up at around 8 o’clock, I was feeling a little lazy (as usual) because I have been woken up several times during my beauty sleep because there was this huge thunderstorm here last night and I thought that the Iraqis were bombing the **** out of us.

I have started going to the gym later now, about 1 or 2 o’clock. The main reason for this is because I now eat a real breakfast (as opposed to just eating a piece of fruit and a quick protein shake then going to work out).

I was supposed to go grocery shopping today but somebody forgot to leave me their credit card before going to work, so I’m going to go later. I’ll be getting the usual.

Eggs
Oatmeal
Milk
Eggs
Cottage Cheese
Eggs
Yogurt
Eggs

Notice how I mentioned “eggs” a few times? That’s because I buy a lot of eggs at the same time, I probably get like 12 cartons at a time, cause I eat a dozen eggs a day and don’t feel like going to Walmart every week.

I hate it how people look at you funny when all you have in your grocery cart is 12 cartons of eggs and 6 buckets of cottage cheese.

They have that “WTF” look on their faces.

But that’s ok because I also have that “WTF” look on my face when I see their shopping cart filled with $100 worth of coke, chips, chocolate, snacks, etc.

Damn fudge packers.

I don’t eat tuna anymore, but boy did I used to! I would eat 3 cans a day, and I would go to this store that was like 30min away just because they had the cheapest prices there.

People with foodstamps shopped there, that’s how ghetto this place was. Furthermore, it was so ghetto that this store didn’t even have shelves, they just had aisles made up of boxes filled with products. And they only had two working registers.

I used to buy a whole box of cans of tuna, it was like 50 cans or something crazy like that, came to like 25 cents a can. Every time I was by the register there would be a really old guy or an old black guy and they would say the following statements to me:

“So, you’re gonna eat all that?”

“Which shelter are you from?”

I don’t remember the other comments but they all had to do with some shelter.

Carolinagirl I use size 1 for my journal writings, because it looks much nicer then regular size writing. If it’s hard for you to read my journal I suggest you do what I do when I wake up in the morning and feel too lazy to put on my contacts/glasses and decide to look at porn, I just pull the screen up really close to my face.

Each journal entry takes me as long as it takes me to write it up. Usually like 10-15min, I have each of my 3 workouts saved on disk, so all I do on that particular day is go into Microsoft Works and edit on my last workout. Also, the things that I will be editing are in blue, everything else is in standard black, so it‘s really easy to find the areas that I will be editing,. The damn journal layout is five pages long.

HomeYeild Like I said, this vB is messed up. I can’t wait to the day when this writing posts will be obsolete and instead people will just be able to talk posts, it would be like talking on the phone, no more reading, just listening and talking. If you think this journal is crazy you haven’t seen nothing yet! Oh, and I’ll defiantly keep it up all right.

I‘m afraid that‘s all the time I have for now, chaps! But don‘t despair! I’ll be back faster than the superhero wannabe Mystic Eric can sneak you a nauseating msn hug! Cheerio!

TripleP, it's cool man, I can just tell you don't like me.

I got a sprain, a pretty mild one... the thing that hurts is the stress fracture on one of my metacarpals. Very subtle, almost impossible to see on an x-ray, but I told the doc exactly where to look. Squatting does give me some discomfort, but I actually use an inzer wrist wrap to keep things tight. Prevents and wrist motion, all but eliminates pain. Might be worth giving a shot.

i hadnt thought of a wrist wrap (stuffed wrist up a month ago- ligaments or some crap) it clicks still whenever i write and hurts a bit with some movements in the gym but that is a bloody good idea :thumbup:

NOTES - Yesterday’s work out was awesome!

I know nobody cares about this, but my wrist is back to normal now, doesn’t hurt at all! So I was able to concentrate on my lifting rather than on my wrist giving out in the middle of a set. Over the weekend I drove to the local Walmart and I bought myself this FUTURO wrap around Wrist Support brace, and it sure worked!

Although my wrist is feeling much better, I’m still a little worried how it’s going to hold up this Friday when I do BB curls…we shall see.

I stopped doing flat BB bench press and have switched to incline because I feel that the incline is less stressful on the shoulders. I used to do incline then I switched to flat…and now that I have switched back to incline I am using more weight…even though I was using less weight (then I normally would on flat) because of my wrist recovering.

That doesn’t make very much sense, or does it?

I felt kind of disappointed because I didn’t lift the usual weight that I do, for example I did DB shoulder press with 55s, and before the wrist injury I was doing 66.5s (wrist weights)…but in a couple of weeks I will be outlifting that! So it will all work out.

9 MEALS!!

Although if you notice four of them are protein shakes…and two others ones include protein powder in them…so I only had three REAL meals, lol.

I remember before how I was eating like seven real meals (real food), that was totally insane, I’d say. Eating this way (the way I’m doing right now) is so much easier and doesn’t take as much time.

I need to buy some ketchup, though, to mix with the chicken meals.

Silence.

Gradually the sound of distant typing becomes audible.

A LOW ANGLE shot behind a chair with a man sitting on it. Learning to Fly by Pink Floyd can be faintly heard playing off somewhere in the background.

CLOSE ON keyboard, the man’s fingers insanely typing away.

The man glances down at the keyboard, pauses for a moment and continues typing calmly now.

CAMERA MOVES UP now to the computer screen…

WBB MEMBERS!

WHY YOU MUST LEAVE ME IN DESPAIR?

I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED, PLEASE!

Please, ladies and gentlemen - enough with the “this journal is awesome, this journal is so cool, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.”

I know all of this, man!

What I don’t know is the answers which I seek by asking my questions which nobody reads.

Well, that’s my rant.

Look who it is.

If it isn’t my old arch nemesis, Mr. McBain. Yes, you would like to inquiry about the cd burner, eh? Don‘t you worry about it, it’s all been taken care of. I have since then gotten a new computer and took my old one out back and smashed it to smithereens.

Belial I can’t believe this! A WBB Member actually ANSWERED one of my questions! You see that, gang? It’s not so hard, is it?

Yes, I have gotten a wrap for my wrist, too, and it actually helped out a lot! I don’t think my wrist has a fracture in it, though. How exactly did you sprain yours?

McBain McBain, you again! Damn straight it’s a bloody good idea!

Also, stop with the smilies, will you? All the tags in my journal are maxed out, so when I quote you I have to go back and delete the silly smilies. You silly goose.


Hey, I just noticed that my journal is a total chick magnet.

Ritzol, CG, Savannah and now McBain all have posted in here!

All that this journal is missing is a Jacuzzi and a Phil Colins CD!

Well, gang I have to go study for my chemistry test now…perhaps when I come back my questions will be answered…boy wouldn’t that be nice!



That slams the lid on yet another successful journal entry, mates, but not to worry! I’ll be stuffing my belly with chicken and rice and before I can put my fork down and take a sip from my trusty water bottle, I’ll be back with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cherrio!

My pull-ups are pathetic! Do you guys have any tips on how I can perform more pull ups?
I just do two sets of pull-ups, kind of like pulldowns. Should I do it another way?

Should I do like 20 pull-ups? And not count how many sets I do?

Well, I have this same problem. I've been doing as many as I can in my weakest position first (wide grip, overhand, with as little assist on the machine thingy as I can do), for a set or two, then coming back to pullups later in the workout when my lats have recovered somewhat and shifting over to mechanically stronger positions (ie, close parallel grip and/or underhand, with a little more assist) and getting as many as I can. Also, negatives are good - get up there however you can and go down REALLY slow. (I don't do enough of these.) Take this with a grain of salt, because I can do maybe 2 unassisted.


About the carbs: you kind of answered your own question. Sweet potatoes. Prebake them, 6 at a time or so, and they are actually really convenient. Smush in some cottage cheese or cinnamon or even natty p-bo. The bananas = good in moderation; same with apples or other fruit. Fructose doesn't have much effect on insulin levels. (It does preferentially refill liver glycogen over muscular glycogen, though, so it wouldn't be great PWO.) Beans are also quite high in carbs (and fiber) and tasty to boot, but if you're too freaking lazy to bake a sweet potato I doubt you're going to want to do all the soaking and rinsing and cooking and seasoning. You can buy them canned and they're pretty good but MUCH more expensive.


THERE. You happy now? Somebody answered some of your questions.

however -- you should feel at least mildly flattered because this is my first (and only) post in the journal section

NOTES - I had to go to the dentist in the morning, and then I had class, so I went to the gym kind of late…at 8pm! Man, I hate going to the gym so late because that’s when all of the FREAKS come out.

They come out after work.

Right now my main focus on leg day isn’t to increase the weight…it’s to increase the reps.

I’m pretty happy with all of my lifts, except for squats. I really like squats but the weight I’m using is just pathetic. Squats just feel so awkward to me. It’s not my fault I’m so gumpy when it comes to them.

Bonjour!

I won a Windows 95 CD on ebay like 3 weeks ago, and finally it came today. There was a little piece of paper taped onto the package that read “Thank you! Please leave positive feedback for me as I will have for you! Eddie“

Yeah, right.

No way am I going to be leaving any feedback at all for Eddie - his stupid CD took like 3 WEEKS to come in!

Some of you may be wondering why exactly did I buy a Windows 95 CD?

I‘ll tell you why.

I was playing around on my laptop…and accidentally deleted some very important system files and so now my laptop won’t even start up. And the bigger problem is that now I can’t use my digital camera, because I don’t have the CD for that, the software is on the laptop.

But that’s all going to change now that my laptop will be working again.

You can look forward to me posting some incredible pics of stuff. What kind of stuff? Just whatever, you know. Stuff.

I do need to buy some batteries. Correction - I need to buy LOTS of batteries.

My digital camera goes through batteries like a fat chick goes through beer on Free Drink Fridays.

Budiak LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I CANNOT BELIEVE I WAS JUST FLAMED IN MY OWN JOURNAL!

You certainly have a good point there, but I also think that you could have said that in a nicer way.

Now go stand in the corner and next time you want so say something raise your hand first, Mr. “Equal Opportunity Offender”.

carolinagirl Hey! Thank you for answering my questions!

The negative pull ups are a great idea! I’m going to try them out tomorrow. How many should I do though? I do two sets of pull-ups, so should I just do them (the negatives) on my last set, or both sets?

I already eat apples, and I’m going to buy some bananas next time I go grocery shopping. And yes I am happy that someone answered my questions. But now I have even more questions! What kind of beans do you suggest? I’m also going to try the sweet potatoes.

Raniali Um, just what kind of religion do you believe in? I do feel flattered that you chose to post in my journal, though. Why am I writing this since you don’t even read journals? I don’t know.



I’m afraid that’s all for now, but fear not my dear readers! I’ll be back faster than Mr. Chris Mason can type in “bull****” after reading a newbie’s post claiming outrageous stats with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cheerio!

Umm..... That WAS a nice way of Budiak saying you should DO SQUATS......... and no, not warmup squats of 90 lbs.


Seriously...











90 lbs?..... You squatting 90 lbs.... is like me squatting without weight... prolly not gonna make a lot of difference.

Besides your legs are about 5x the size of mine, I think if I can handle 225 you can certainly handle more than 90.




Read Paul Stagg's sig... it is aboslutely, unequivocally, without a doubt..... brilliant.


I do agree.... your journal is nice... but it is hard to read.. it's like the beauty pageant for journals or something. I think you should like throw the fancy shmancy stuff out the window.. and have a normal, easy to navigate journal like the rest of the wbb population.

Ritzol

It started as a max, but I think I did 4-6 reps with it.... I can't remember, it was awhile ago. I'm thinking it was 4 though.
