Nice squat man. You deserve your weekend beer :)

reverse leg ext = leg curls right?

Nice pressing too :thumbup:

what does BO = ?

heathj
03-22-2002, 08:58 AM
Reverse Leg Extension is like leg curl..your sitting down regular and push the weight down with your legs..kinda weird. BO = Bent Over. Thanks foos.

Monday April 1, 2002

Stage Three starts today. Right now I weigh around 200 and my bodyfat is about 14%. My goal by graduation(June 14th) is to be around 185 and have 8% bodyfat.

Training

Chest
Flat BB Bench: 135 x 10, 185 x 3, 240 x 2 + 1 ass., 245 x 1 + 1 ass.
Cable Crossovers: 80 x 10, 100 x 8, 110 x 5 :cool:

Triceps
Skull Crushers(behind neck): 85 x 6, 105 x 6, 115 x 0 :mad:
Weighted Dips: +35 x 12, +60 x 10, +80 x 7

Diet

Diet started today. So far spot on. Eating my sweet tarts right now...seems kinda odd to be doing it, but they're pure dextrose/maltodextrin. The only thing I have trouble eating is oatmeal and possibly the pasta, but we'll find out about that. I have never really liked plain oatmeal, but it has some good carbs in it, so I'll eat it :) Anyway...I will post later as to how my diet continued throughout the day.

Diet is perfect. Damn this is fairly easy to stick too. The angel hair pasta is the ****!

Tuesday April 2, 2002

Ran for 10 minutes..played bball for 20. Ran around a lot since I was doing lots of halfcourt shots and missing all the time :)

Diet is perfect so far. Yesterday the only cheat thing I had was a stick of gum, since I was out somewhere and couldn't eat for 4.5 hours. Going good though. Drank around 4-4.5 liters of water yesterday. Today I'm going on 1.5 liters. Doing good. H-Cut..got plenty of that shiat...taking 3 pills, 3 times per day to start off. Today it hit me hard as I am sweating like a mother. Hopefully by the end of this week I'll notice a big change. I started tanning also. Gonna go 1-2 times per week.

heathj
04-02-2002, 06:34 PM
For anyone who actually reads my journal...do you think I should supplement with fiber or am I eating enough? Haven't had to sh*t since Sunday night...

rookiebldr
04-02-2002, 08:37 PM
I'm reading you journal, can't comment on the fibre but keep up the great work. Your lifts are impressive, oatmeal is great, and I don't think I could eat as many eggs are you are.

heathj
04-02-2002, 10:24 PM
Thanks....anyway, I substituted my oatmeal in my last meal for 120 calories worth of bread. So it's 30 calories less and tastes much better :) The bread has 7.5g fiber in it.

Wednesday, April 3, 2002

Well my first two workouts of April have been kickass.

Training

Back:
Deadlift - 245 x 6, 315 x 3, 365 x 3, 435 x 7 (chalked it up this time...sweating like a mofo)
Pullups - +25 x 10, +35 x 6, +45 x 1.5 (haha...deads killed me)
Bent Over DB Rows - 80 x 6, 6, 6 (Hands were torn up from deads...kinda hurt)



Biceps: - Rep Tempo (1-2-1)
DB Standing Curls - 40 x 3, 45 x 3, 50 x 2 (work on form)
DB Hammer Curls - 40 x 3, 45 x 3, 50 x 3 (work on form)

Shiat man...deads tore my hands up and killed my body :) The worst part about deads is taking the weight off once I'm done..bending over hurts my back..

Diet is perfect. Substituting bread for oatmeal in a few spots...other then that :thumbup:

heathj-
Nice back strength bro! Dead strength very impressive, especially since your young (18 right?) like me. Keep it up. Nice pullup strength too.

:cool::cool:

heathj
04-03-2002, 08:52 AM
Thanks...18 in June :) Pullups would be higher if I didn't do some focking heavy ass deads before them :)

heathj
04-03-2002, 09:53 PM
Some goals I made back in January for June of this year...almost up to them.

June 2002
Deadlift - 455 x 6
Squat - 365 x 6
Bench - 245 x 6


Well my deadlift is 435 x 7..so 20 lbs. away from that..give me 4 weeks ;)

My squat is 365 x 5..going for 370 on Friday...so I've gotten that goal pretty much.

My bench is 240 x 2, so I'm not TOO far away from 245 x 6....I should hit these easy before June...

Holy f*ck is it hot. It's 64 degrees. Nice ass weather. I played bball for about 40 total minutes today, outside. I got work today at 4, so it'll be hella hot in there too...around 70 or 80 :cry:

Anyway, diet is focking spot on. I have noticed a little bit of change, but barely any. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me. Oh well, Saturday is cheat day.

At your weight, and the weights that you are lifting, you could very easily win a local powerlifting meet. Perhaps you should look into it.

04-04-2002, 04:50 PM
Why cheat already you weak-ass bitch?!

Save cheat days for when you really need them. What are you cheating with anyway?

heathj
04-04-2002, 11:00 PM
Why am I cheating already? Cause there's things to be drinken on Saturday. Umm...cheating with lots of carbs and low fat. Probably lots of cereal and bread products :) Will try to keep calories around 3000-3200. If I do drink that night, I will try to limit it to hard a, as it has less calories.

Are you eating less carbs than you were when bulking?

If so it may just be lost glycogen and you notholding as much water in the muscles.

325 x 6 is ******* good for 2 years off. I wish I had been working out as long as you :)

Anyway...last night I guess I had fun...tried to get drunk, couldn't...I don't know how many I had..not very much, like 6+...almost had some mouth on my head...but..friends barged in, grr..it's hard to keep my diet in high school on the weekends :( And now spring break has started! Ack! I will try my best...

heathj
04-10-2002, 02:15 PM
Bah..f*cking a! Woke up hella late today so I am not going to work out. Gotta work in a few hours anyway. I am putting my workout off until tomorrow. Spring break sucks ass when you're talking about workouts and diet. Been trying to keep my diet pretty good though. Haven't gone to bed before 3am since Thursday night though...sleep is shitty...woke up at 12:45pm today...ughh...somebody smack me. Gonna see if I can go to bed at a decent hour tonight(12am or so).

Had to do back/biceps today since I'm a f*ck and slept in yesterday. I hate f*cking up my schedule!!! I'm also working out 4 hours later then usual, which I hate doing also. Now I learn that the gym won't be open tomorrow, so I gotta go to another gym and pay $6...where all the weights are in KG...this whole week is messed up..which is affecting my lifts...

Training

Back:
Deadlift - 245 x 6, 315 x 3, 365 x 3, 440 x 0, 440 x 0 :confused: :mad:
Pullups - +25 x 10, +35 x 7, +45 x 4
Bent Over DB Rows - 80 x 6, 6, 6


Biceps: - Rep Tempo (1-2-1)
DB Standing Curls - 40 x 3, 45 x 3, 50 x 3 (getting easier)
DB Hammer Curls - 40 x 3, 45 x 3, 50 x 3 (getting easier)

I think all my lack of sleep, the fact that it's spring break, the fact that I'm cutting, I am working out 4-5 hours later then usual and the days are messed up...is all affecting my workouts. Oh well, time to stop bitching and worry about my sore ass back.

heathj
04-11-2002, 08:10 PM
Diet was fairly good today. From now on I'll probably be making two posts per day. One for workout, one for diet, since my workout is bright and early and my diet doesn't end until the end of the day :)

So far...

meal 1
3 slices mini-bread(whole wheat)
1 whole egg
4 egg whites
16 oz. water

meal 2 (post-workout)
36g sweet tarts
1 scoop protein
5g creatine
8g l-glutamine
32 oz. water

meal 3
1 can tuna
2 slices wheat bread
2 tbsp. low fat mayo

meal 4
2 scoops protein
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1 slice wheat bread
16 oz. water

meal 5
150g turkey/chicken
1.5 cups cooked pasta
1 cup yogurt

Two more meals left...

meal 6
4 egg whites
1 whole eggs
1 tbsp. flax seed oil
16 oz. water

meal 7
1 can tuna
3 slices mini-bread(whole wheat)

So, so far, about a 9/10.

Woke up almost 30 minutes late, so I couldn't have a regular Meal for my pre-workout, so instead I consumed something that was available, and that was 3 tiny blueberry muffins that my mom had made..


Anyway, about the girl, I talked to her after my workout, after I was huuuuuuuge and she said that the answer is yes, so at least I have confirmation from her. Then we proceeded to f*ck on the hood of her car...no, not really. Anyway, now at least I know 100% that I'm going..now dinner and all that other reservations have to be done..

Deadlift - 245 x 6, 315 x 3, 365 x 3, 425 x 7

... Totally incredible strength here bro. Very very impressive. How the hell is your deadlift strength so high? Are you using straps or what? From my knees I am only pulling like 380 or so. My goal is something like 495 I think, yeah - for 4 reps. :cool::cool:

Pullups - +25 x 10, +70 x 3 - ~4 seconds to go down...(negatives...ouch)

... :eek::eek: Great lat strength here man very good. +70 lbs.!? Wow thats amazing. Youre in Belial and PowerManDL's league now... or at least coming a lot closer than I am. I am doing like +35 or something for 6. Pathetic.

Bent Over DB Rows - 80 x 6, 6, 6

... Good strength here too man. Your lats were probably fried at this point.

04-17-2002, 08:55 AM
My deadlifts went down..due to my cutting, at least, that's my excuse :p How is it so high? I have no clue..my legs are quite a bit stronger then my upper body...except my forearms have some real strength in them, to be able to pull that shiat. No straps...I don't touch the ground on each rep thoough...but an inch or two from it. Well, those +70 pullups were negatives..still hard as hell though :) Yes, my back is always fried by the time I get to rows, that's why I can only do the 80's..even though that's as high as my gym's db's go...

Awesome set of triceps today bro. Really looking awesome. I was going to ask you man when you say behind the neck extensions. Are you doing your skulls seated like French presses or are you doing them lying just lowering the bar on top of your head? Like with your head off the end of the bench?

MS

Close to your strength on this too man, but I do seated BTN presses. Did like 150 or something for 6 maybe. I forget now but its in my journal.

heathj
04-28-2002, 11:59 AM
Well it's just one thing in particular right now...They took away my cell phone...for good, all because I didn't want to have them borrow it for a few days because I needed to make some calls with it(as all my numbers are in there) and some people were going to call me. I refused, and then later gave it to my dad(the next day), he then said ok, you can't have it anymore. Well, I checked my voice mail today, cause I can do it through other phones and I have 14 messages and I don't know anyone's number. I asked my dad if I could use the cell phone to check for these people's numbers and he says no. I can't even use the phone to look up people's numbers, ever. So there I lose 80 phone numbers and I'll never get them back through my cell phone, so it's a big pain in the ass and I don't see what the big deal is just to let me write them down.

I have only done deads of any sort probably about 10-12 times now my whole life. Pulling from knee level the past 3 weeks which was a lot of fun. Increasing by around 10-15 lbs. every single week. Whats your pulling strength from shin level like?

Awesome strength man - 435 for 7! Jesus I hope I get there eventually. Today I am going to try and pull 425 and see how that goes. Hopefully Ill get 4-5 reps. :):) Up 20 lbs. from last weeks pull though.

Chris Rodgers
05-01-2002, 10:16 AM
It's quite a humbling experience going from partials to a dead stop off the floor, eh?

Happen to me a while back, prolly the reason I'll never do rack pulls again....or at least not very often.

You could try pulling off of plates to make the ROM longer or even doing some speed singles to work on ripping it off the floor.

heathj
05-01-2002, 11:56 AM
Yes...quite ;) Some speed singles? Like with my warmup weight or what?

Chris Rodgers
05-01-2002, 01:10 PM
You can use anything from like 60%-80% of your max and just pull like 4-6 singles with it with not too much rest between. Helps perfect form and also speed off the foor.

heathj
05-01-2002, 07:56 PM
Ok Latty I'll try some quick singles with like 355 next week. Should I do let's say:

245 x 6 (singles)
315 x 3 (singles)
355 x 3-6 (singles)
405 x 2-3...???


Anyway...

Went on a hike with this chick for 1 hour.
Played bball with her for about 40 minutes.

Cheated a bit, missed a few meals, ate some trail mix and some wheat things :mad: Burned a bunch of cals though. I will be skipping meals 4 and 5 to make up for the over-excessive calories. Meal 6 will be taken in, in about 1 hour or so. Had some fun today, so who cares.. :D

Chris Rodgers
05-01-2002, 08:05 PM
That's like 15 singles? I said 4-6.

Warm up, then pick a weight to do the singles with and perform 4-6 singles with it. Comprende?

heathj
05-01-2002, 09:15 PM
I wouldn't think that would help my strength much..?? I always do reps at around 80-90% of my max...but, ok, I'll try it!

Lookin' good, man. Your legs look especially good.

I'd say you're a bit higher than 10% though. You should be pretty ripped by the time you hit 10%

Anyways, you got some 'before' pics so we can better gauge your progress?

Bahaha..I just checked my BMI and I got a 26...I am considered obese! hahaha...what a crock of ****. I am so obese...

Height: 72 in
Weight: 190 lb
Your body mass ratio is 26.

For your height, your ideal weight is between 147 lb and 184 lb.


147????!!! That is one skinny focker for being 6 feet tall.

heathj
05-14-2002, 08:51 AM
Decided to take some measurements:

Chest: 42"
Shoulders: 49.5"
Bicep: 14.5" :mad:
Forearm: 12.5"
Waist: 34"
Hips: 37.5"
Quads: 24.5"
Calves:17"


Uggh...why are my arms so tiny?!!! and my chest sucks too.

05-14-2002, 09:39 AM
But you are lean as hell with those measurements, now when your bulk again and cut down, those measurements will be much bigger, i guarantee it.

.

The BMI calculations are worse than useless for anyone who is weight training. They don't take into account muscle mass vs. total weight.

Good for a joke, I guess,

The_Chicken_Daddy
05-14-2002, 10:08 AM
Heath, if you're so pissed at your arm size, why not try reducing direct arm work and maybe doing delts after chest so your tris get a full week to recouperate.

Once you've done your pressing for chest and delts, do say 2 sets of dips fo tris and after back do 2 sets of curls.

My arms have reacted quite nicely to me doing this. I only do 1 set for bis and tris right now. Sometimes not even doing any bicep work.

MonStar
05-14-2002, 10:13 AM
Good luck with increasing your measurements heathj. Yeah arm size is tough to get. Nice measurements other than that though. Like your profile too man, awesome skull, dead, squat, and OH press strength. :thumbup::thumbup:

05-14-2002, 03:58 PM
Heathj, if it makes you feel any better, I am 3 years older than you with almost the exact same stats, but my arms are only 14 and a WEEE bit, and you are a hell of a lot stronger than me with squats, deads, and some others. It makes me laugh when people on this site complain about arm genetics with 16 inch arms.

heathj
05-14-2002, 05:01 PM
I know..makes me mad...16" is big.

smalls
05-14-2002, 05:52 PM
But, in conjuction with that I dont really care too much about measurements, I care about what I look like in the mirror, and if I am progressing.
Also keep posting pics, It's cool to have someone very close in stats to compare with. I am 193 and cutting at the moment as well. I might post pics if I ever get some, and I really only have access to the site at work. Anway, keep up the good work.

heathj-
Please dont take this as discouragement or anything like that. But my arms are around 16-16.5" and its not too big. I mean honestly I think people just want more than they have. I have a 48-49" chest and I want a 52-55" chest. My forearms are 12.75" or some sh!t but I would MUCH rather have them at 13.5" ya know? I mean I am sure your arms are proportional. :cool::cool:

I'll just jump in and say I'm also around the same weight and relatively similar bf% as Heathj. Way weaker and slightly bigger measurements. Monstar's also around the same weight and bf%, if I'm not mistaken.

the doc
05-15-2002, 07:57 AM
i think chicken is on to something here. Especially whilst cutting (where recovery resources are limited) i do not do arm direct arm work. Heavy pulls will work the biceps, heavy pushes will work tris. Then when you are massing again, you can add an arm day. COnsider upping recovery time here as well if you add an arm day.

MonStar
05-15-2002, 07:58 AM

Yeah man I am very close to your measurements and strength for the most part. And age too to be honest. I am following HST right now so its going to be tough to compete for strength but were both cutting which is cool. My measurements are in my signature now, theyre all taken today as of 5-15-2002. Cutting has DROPPED them haha. Everything is unflexed except biceps I believe. :cool::cool:

Diet..been shitty as hell the last two weeks. Oh well, I'm not getting fatter..just not losing weight :( Oh well, I'm having fun! :p Anyway, here's an update of last weekend.

5/24 - Started to hang out with Jessie and Chelsea around 3-4pm. We just hung out, drove around, went to my place for a little while. I got my fourth fifth. So alcohol totals for the weekends events were:
1 fifth 99 Bananas (tastes like ass),
1 fifth Smirnoff Vodka (love this stuff)
1 fifth Jose Cuervo Tequila (also love this)
1 fifth Captain Morgan's Rum (mmm...good with coke)
27 budweisers

So yeah...well, Friday night, I wanted to party..so we all decided to, since there were 2 parties going on. We stopped by one to see how it was. It was alright, then went to the other to talk to some people. Ended up coming back to the first one we went too and brought some people with us. I decided to smoke some ganja, so I did. I drank probably 7 beers and took maybe 4 hits. I was fine, not stumbling at all. But it was nice. We got a total of 3 hours sleep that night, which I spent with Jessie in Chelsea's parents bed, haha.

5/25 - Woke up around 8-9am. Tired as hell...Chelsea came back to her house, since she went back to someone's house, and left Jessie and I at hers. We drove over to Jessie's house(20 minutes away) and started to pack for camping. Ian and Elena(other two people that went) came over. We got all the cars ready and headed out around 11:30 for the campsite, about 2 hours away. It was in the 80's...it was hella nice. We arrived over there around 1:30 and set up everything. Cooked some hot dogs...ate, smoked...Elena and I started drinking around 4:30, everyone else joined us around 5-5:30. We played some drunken volleyball, football. Basically had the whole camp to ourselves, too, since everyone else was at a concert. It was fun...continued to drink until around 11:30, until we passed out, from the lack of sleep the night before. Slept with Jessie again.

5/26 - Got a lot of sleep. Woke up around 8am or so. Took about an hour or so to get up and then Jessie and I decided to go to the local grocery store. This store sucks complete ass. We went there, they had no orange juice, they had nothing. We wanted more hot dogs..but no, the only meat they had there was some lunchables...how the **** does that qualify under meat? (It was in the meat section). So we came back to the campsite with some ice, etc...then Ian, Jessie and I were hungry, so we went to the local restaurant. It was shitty..haha..the same chick that worked at the grocery store was at the restaurant(5 minute walk from each other). I got chicken breasts and the guy behind the counter started making chicken sounds...and he called me Heath Bar..I was about to smack him, but I refrained. We ate and then came back. We went down to the River around 3-4pm and just chilled there and watched some German's play volleyball. Some of Ian's friends were in town for the concert and they stopped by. It was cool. They left around 6pm. We started drinking late this night...around 7:30pm :) Ian and I invited 4 other girls over. It was around 10:30pm by this time, so I was feeling quite good, especially with Elena's and Jessie's heads in my lap(we have a picture.. ;)) So these girls come over, drink for about an hour and are quite well intoxicated. One wants to switch chairs with the other, but she declines. So the girl punches her in the face(hahaha), so they start fighting on the ground and punching each other, quite entertaining(Yes, these girls were from the same campsite...). So I watch that for a bit and their dad comes over, yells at us, threatens us about calling the cops for supplying his daughters and their friends with alcohol, etc...Chelsea hid in the tent cause she thought if she was in there, the cops wouldn't find her, haha...Our campsite neighbors come over and try to help us, tell us what to do if the cops come. So by that time, with all that ******* commotion, my drunken-ness wears off. I was quite mad. So yeah, we all decide to just lay down, but don't fall asleep until around 3am or so. Slept with Jessie again ;)

5/27 - Wake up around 8am...started packing up and I had quite a bit of cotton mouth. Jessie was annoyed, but it was funny :D So we packed up and left about 10am. I'm sure the people there were quite happy. We were basically the only teenagers there, without any parents. We got home around 12pm, and everyone split up and went home. I stayed at Jessie's for an hour or so, just talking to her and her mom. Then I went home. I got home, washed my clothes. My mom decided to wash some also, since they smelled like 'campfire' smoke. Yeah mom, campfire smoke...Anyway, then I fell asleep at 5:30pm on Monday and woke up at 7:45am on Tuesday..damn, haha...

Anyway, there's your fairly detailed summary guys. I hopefully will get some pictures developed this weekend and maybe I will post some. The weekend kicked ass and I want to go back, with those same people...I love them. They're ******* cool as hell. This weekend will hopefully be fun..and next weekend even cooler. It's my birthday on Thursday! I'm gonna be 18..oh yeah...fun times...

Good benching!!

Great bench man. Although, I bet you could push more weight if you changed your rep scheme around.

Just a suggestion that you could take or leave, but I feel that if you used the following rep scheme you could do better on your heavy set.

135x10/185x3/3-4 minute break/230x?(4-5)/210x?

Your set of 210 for 6 will definitely hurt your final heaviest lift. 135 fast will give you a good warmup and the low reps of 185 will prepare your joints for a heavier load, and then a bit of rest to prepare for your heavy set and I think you will shatter your lifting record. Again just something that I'd suggest...mebbe you've tried it this way already...

78 degrees out. Not a cloud in the sky. I figured it was the perfect day for a jog.

Ran 1 mile.

Diet = 9.5/10

Hydroxycut left: 236

At 12 per day..that leaves me with 19 full days left of use. :eek:

Time to jack some more.. :hide:

Relentless
06-25-2002, 03:49 PM
Damn that's a lot of Hydroxycut man... a LOT.

FYI, generic-brand Ephedrine, I just found out today, is like a tiny fraction of the cost of stuff like Hydroxycut and Xenadrine.

I got 300 caps of generic for $15, as opposed to $50 or so for 120 caps of Xena/Hydrox. Sure, i have to find another source of caffiene to use with it, but the money I saved makes it easy.

heathj
06-25-2002, 04:51 PM
Well, when I got all my 1000+ pills of hydroxycut, I only paid about $40 since I knew someone who worked at the store. Now they don't work there...I am trying to get a job at the place though :) Yeah, pure ephedrine is much cheaper..but also illegal, so harder to get.

The_Chicken_Daddy

High caffiene intake like that can cause problems when dieting, heathbar.

And i bet you've been on the eph for quite a while, i'll bet your adrenals are exhausted.

Oh, by the way..on my second set of deadlifts, when I was using 3 PLATES, the WHOLE gym went QUIET! It was incredible. I must be the biggest 18 year old, ever. :rolleyes: Yes, I'm mocking you, Assipter.

heathj
07-13-2002, 01:19 AM
Read Maki's Article (http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=80) . Great article Maxi! I will be incorporating this into my workout routine.

Just for a reference -

Week 1

- Modified PNF Trunk Patterns 4x6 (2 sets each for each movement)
- Decline Static Holds 3x4 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)
- Weighted Stability Ball Holds 2x4 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)

Rest periods: 4 minutes

Week 2

During this training week there will be two sessions where the abdominal musculature will be trained. Try to keep at least 72 hours in between training sessions.

- Modified PNF Trunk Patterns 4x3 (2 sets each for each movement)
- Decline Static Holds 3x1 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)
- Weighted Stability Ball Holds 2x2 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)

Rest periods: 4 minutes

Week 3

- Modified PNF Trunk Patterns 4x8 (2 sets each for each movement)
- Decline Static Holds 3x5 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)
- Weighted Stability Ball Holds 2x5 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)

Rest periods: 5 minutes

Take week 4 off and allow for some time to recuperate.
Then in Weeks 5-8, there will be a switch in the order of the exercises. The same rest periods will be incorporated.
Keeping the PNF, trunk patterns first switch the order of the decline static holds and the stability ball holds around. This way, there will be a fairly even balance between the strength gained in both of the exercises.


Setting up my new revised routine now...This will start Monday. I want to see some strength increases and hypertrophy, especially in my arms and chest.


Monday

Chest:
Flat BB Bench - 1 set x 10, 1 set x 6(warmup), 1 set x 2 reps regular, 2 reps paused
Cable Crossovers - 1 set x 10
Incline DB Bench - 2 sets x 6

Triceps:
Skull Crushers(behind neck) - 1 set x 10, 1 set x 8, 1 set x 6
Weighted Dips - 1 set x 10, 1 set x 6

Abs:
Modified PNF Trunk Patterns - 4 sets x 6 (2 sets each for each movement)
Decline Static Holds - 3 sets x 4 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)
Weighted Stability Ball Holds - 2 sets x 4 (hold each position for 4-6 seconds)

Tuesday

Cardio:
Run 1 mile (if raining, run inside for 10 minutes).
Jump-rope for 20 minutes.
Play basketball for 20-30 minutes.

Wednesday

Back:
Deadlift - 1 set x 6, 1 set x 3(warmup), 1 set x 6-8(touch floor each rep)
Pullups - 1 set x 10, 1 set x 8, 1 set negatives x 3
Bent Over DB Rows - 1 set x 6 (each side)

Biceps:
Preacher Curls - 2 sets x 6-8
Hammer DB Curls - 1 set x 4-6
Standing BB Curls - 1 set x 4-6

Thursday

Cardio:
Run 1 mile (if raining, run inside for 10 minutes).
Jump-rope for 20 minutes.
Play basketball for 20-30 minutes.

Friday

Legs:
Squats - 1 set x 6, 2 sets x 3 'w/o belt' (warmup), 1 set x 3 'w/ belt'
Leg Extensions - 3 sets x 6
Reverse Leg Extensions - 2 sets x 10 (tempo:2-1-2)


Shoulders:
Seated BO Lateral Raises - 1 set x 4-6
Seated Front Raises - 1 set x 4-6
BB Shrugs - 2 sets x 8-10


Diet will be my 'cutting' diet. It's about 2300-2400 calories. I will try to stay on it. Not 100% strict, but fairly strict. This diet helps me gain strength and muscle and lose fat. Just as long as I can stick with it. What do you guys think?
