Mine is basically push/pull/legs...bench/deads/squats..oh well :)

Thanks...my strength has been shooting up somewhat lately. Except my bench still sucks ass. Hopefully this will get me out of that rut.

I would consider doing delts with push if I were you man. I think thats one of the reasons your bench maybe lagging. Just my opinion though.

So you're saying chest/delts/abs, back/bicep, legs/triceps ?

MonStar

No, I am saying chest/delts/triceps, back/biceps, legs/abs.

This way your pushing muscles like your front delts and triceps surely wont be overtrained.

Makes sense...but I think that'd be way to much for my Monday workout. What does everyone else think?

Well, diet and routine start tomorrow. Took some measurements tonight. It is 11pm. Weight will be taken in the morning. New measurements and weight will be taken every week. Bodyfat will also be following these same guidelines.

Neck - 15.5"
Shoulders - 50"
Chest - 42"
Upper Arm - 15"
Forearm - 12.5"
Waist - 34.5"
Hips - 38.5"
Thighs - 24.25"
Calves - 17.25"

Main lifts -

Bench - 225 x 5
Squat - 395 x 3
Deadlift - 395 x 6
Skulls - 130 x 6
Pullups - +45 x 6
Dips - +80 x 7.5

I hope to increase all measurements, but the main ones will be my neck, chest, upper arm and forearm. Hopefully this new routine will provide me with those increases. This diet I will be following, I have followed in the past. It always helps me lower bodyfat while gaining lbm and strength..the hard part is sticking to it. I will not be 100% strict on it, but as much as I can. I will not get mad at myself for faultering..that is another thing that happens which differs me away from sticking to it. Let's do this!

Training

Chest:
Flat BB Bench - 135 x 10, 185 x 3, 225 x 2 regular, 1 paused + 1 :mad:
Cable Crossovers - 90 x 10
Incline DB Bench - 60 x 6, 75 x 6

Triceps:
Skull Crushers - 85 x 10, 105 x 8, 130 x 6
Dips - +45 x 10, +70 x 6

Abs:
Modified PNF Trunk Patterns - 4 sets x 6 (2 each side)
Weighted Stability Ball Holds - +25: 3 sets x 4 (hold each pos. for 4 seconds)
Decline Static Holds - +25: 2 sets x 4 (hold each pos. for 4 seconds)

Weight - 198 :eek: Must be from all that food I ate yesterday.

Not bad I guess..my elbow is still bothering me. I think I need to see a physical therapist soon. Bench still sucks..maybe it'll increase in a few weeks with this new program. Stupid volleyball coach made us turn down the volume on the stereo..all the way, cause they had camp going on in the gym and it was too loud. Stupid bitch.

Training

Back:
Deadlift - 245 x 6, 315 x 3, 400 x 6 (All from floor)
Pullups - +35 x 8, +45 x 6, +60 x 3 negatives
(Took out DB rows for a while)

Biceps:
Preacher Curls - 65 x 8, 75 x 6 - Getting form down..felt good
DB Hammer Curls - 40 x 6
Standing BB Curls - 95 x 6

Good session. Elbow didn't bother me. I think I'll keep DB Rows out for a while, I think those were hurting my elbow too much. On a side note...I ripped another pair of boxers... :) I think maybe I should wear whitey tighties or boxer briefs or something instead. I like this new bicep workout. Hopefully it'll help me grow.

Bah it's so hard for me to keep a freaking diet on track. With all these f*cked up sleep patterns from partying and all. Monday night I didn't go to bed until 8:30am on Tuesday morning...Then slept until 3pm. I do this a lot..not usually 8:30..but past 5am at least. My sleep is terrible...but gains seem to be going ok, except for bench :mad: I'm also working until around 11pm every night, so then if I go out, it's around 12...and I stay out late...Plus with all this drinking, partying, etc. going on...I can't just decline..I'm not that kind of person..I love social activities :) Lately though I have been only drinking 5 or so..and just smoking, which helps me lower my caloric intake, which is good. Usually if I don't smoke though I'll drink 8-9 beers in a night..which is fine. Tonight I'm going to another party...then on Friday it's Summerjam.

One thing I am going to do though, is restrain from eating pizza/bread at work. I get it for free, so it's tough. On my break I usually eat a slice of bread (~8" long, 4" wide, 1-2" high)with mozarella cheese, 6 slices of pepperoni and some chicken on it, dipped in sauce. Damn...I do that maybe 2-3 times per week now, if I'm not eating eggs instead. I will STOP eating that damn f*cking bread. Instead I'll eat some dinner salad with a bit of dressing or just eat some plain chicken. I'm sure that bread is around 800-1000 calories :eek: Hopefully this will help me lower my intake...now I have to get the rest of the diet on track. Someone smack me!

It's funny Heath. It kinda sounds like things my friends and I do except I don't drink I try to keep it to a minimum really. The thing that sucks most is that they could give a sh*t what all the junk food eating and alcohol does to them. They don't train or anything so they could care less.

You gotta live ya know? It's fun stuff. :D

Hot damn...SummerJam was a blast! The concert and the parties after kicked ass. The artists that were there were:

Rayvon
Mario
Busta Rhymes and Spliff Star (They smoked a blunt on stage)
Nappy Roots
LL Cool J
Usher
Nelly & The St. Lunatics
Jermaine Dupri
Da Brat

Before the concert a few of us got f*cked up...Actually, a little too f*cked up..haha. We smoked maybe 4 hits each and my friend and I chugged 4-5 beers within 10 minutes. It was fun..but by the time all the main stage stuff started, it wore off...so it was fine. The concert went from 4-11 and we were outside from 1-11. It was about 85-90 degrees out. I am hella dark right now. I didn't eat a single thing from 1-11 though. A personal pan pizza was $6 and a bottle of water was $4....f*cking ripoff. Good thing they had water fountains.

The after party was great. We camped in Getty's Cove..a campground in Vantage, WA...about 20 minutes from George, WA...where the Gorge is(where the concert was). There were TONS of people there...a few hundred at least. Cops drove through, didn't care if people were drinking, smoking..they couldn't do anything anyway..were they going to arrest a few hundred people in a small town? No. It was fun though, people were walking around carrying 24 packs, fifths, etc..That night I took about 2 shots, 2 high gravity's and 3 budweisers or so. Plus, I smoked about 10 hits of opium/weed and then I took another 5-10 hits of weed after that. I puked 3 times...then I felt perfect. It was great :) I stayed up until about 5-5:30am and woke up at 8:30am to leave. We left at 9:30. Got home around 12pm and stayed up until 2pm cause I was supposed to go to my Grandpa's birthday party gathering....my dad didn't wake me up cause he thought I'd be too tired. Was I ever! :) I slept from 2-6. I feel relaxed, but I could sleep more. Wonder what's on for tonight?! ;)

I just noticed some of your PBs in your signature man. Nice strength!! 395 lbs. squats for a triple.. :eek::eek:

Deadlifts and skulls strength is also awesome. Keep up the hard work man.

heathj
07-21-2002, 01:58 PM
I don't do a helluva lot of drugs...3? I don't even smoke opium very often. Actually, rarely at all. Weed...sometimes I'll go in spurts and smoke 6-9 days in a row..then sometimes I won't smoke for a few weeks..it all depends on my mood. Alcohol..I don't drink too often. Anywhere from 3-4 days on a good week and then sometimes maybe 0-1...Do you think that's too much...? I didn't really think so.

On another note...I was thinking of dropping bb bench to sets of 6. Maybe like 210 x 6, 215 x 6, 215 x 6...Something like that..and then move up 5 lbs. a week if I consistently move up. B? I've been doing that paused, regular for 2 weeks and I haven't increased strength at all...:cry: I'll do it again this week though...what sucks on my incline db is that the gym only goes up to 80's...and I am gonna do 80's tomorrow. Which I most likely can hit for 6-8. Oh well...

Bah, too much drinking/smoking...ok.

Didn't work out Friday. There's this god damn national unicycle contest at my gym and of course the stupid f*cks don't want anyone disturbing them. F*CK YOU..it's my god damn gym, not yours. Go eat a d*ck. Anyway, so I couldn't work out Friday, which really pissed me off. Then today I didn't work out either cause I was completely f*cked up last night and didn't wake up until 2 hours later then I wanted too, when Jessie called me to talk.

P.S. I am really just a weak little bastard, which is why I did not lift....:mad: Damn't...I think maybe on Wednesday I'll do some singles work on deadlifts...Maybe go down to 355 or something and do maybe a set of 3-6 singles...whatever I can do.

Preacher Curls - 65 x 6, 75 x 6

Good session overall...pausing for that long on the floor for deads is killer. I'm going to keep continuing to do that...By the way..yes those god damn unicyclers were there...but it wasn't the contest at least, just some weird ass groupies trying to figure out how to get on some contraption that only has one god damn wheel. Anyway, they didn't bother us at all. :thumbup:

Anyway, went to Whistler. Didn't workout Wednesday or Friday. I did mountain bike and swim though...so at least I got some exercise. I also drank wednesday, thursday and friday. Friday I got home and drank 16 beers in about 2 hours, at this party. I puked. Ugh. Oh well. Whistler was really fun though. We never visited Vancouver though cause we ran out of money. Mountain biking was about $100. We also bought some clothes and I bought myself 4 cubans. Overall it was a badass trip. Kinda wish I didn't have to come home and work on saturday and sunday. But it's all good. Jessie gets home tomorrow. I pick her up from the airport at 7:02pm. I haven't seen her since July 10th :eek: It'll be nice to finally see her face again. Well, that's all. Working out tomorrow...going for 230 x 6 on bench.

Chest:

Incline DB Bench - 60 x 6, 80 x 6
Cable Crossovers - 100 x 10

Triceps:
Incline Skull Crushers - 85 x 8, 105 x 6 (Went for rep 7...went back tooooo far and my triceps gave out...this is not a hard weight for me, I just went back too far. Triceps gave out and I had to lower the weight behind me all the way to the floor..of course I was on an incline bench...F***********CK! That hurt like a bitch..thought my triceps ripped out of my arms)
-Ended workout there...didn't want to pull a muscle...-

Well apart from my shitty benching...I was thinking of adding a set of 205 x 3 for warmup also...anyway...apart from shitty benching and my tricep dying on me, at least my girlfriend gets back tonight. I pick her up at 7pm tonight at the airport. I guess this other chick, that I'm friends with, wants to go also. Jessie doesn't want her too, cause she just wants to spend the night with me...:D She told these two other girls, that I'm good friends with, and they told me that. Oh well, it's not like I would say "no you can't come to the airport with me." I'm just not that mean :) Oh well...things will figure themselves out, hopefully.

Sorry to hear about your breakup with your girl Heath. But on a good note....your 18 and being single is a GOOD THING at this point in your life. Take your time, date some girls, have fun and then you will not look back later in life and wish you hadn't have done these things. If you are going to college, you especially don't need to be tied down to one girl......play the field a while.

Peace.

Yeah I know, but I wish it had lasted a few weeks longer. It just took me by surprise that she decided to break it off last night, considering we do have 5 weeks of summer left. If she had brought it up in 3 weeks, I would've not been surprised at all.

Back's been bothering me lately, so I took deads out for a while. See how that goes.

Back:
Pullups - +35 x 10, +55 x 8, +70 x 1 + 3 negs.
Bent Over BB Rows - 135 x 6, 155 x 6
Bent Over DB Rows - 80 x 6, 6

Biceps:
Preacher Curls - 85 x 6, 6
DB Hammer Curls - 50 x 6
Standing BB Curls - 100 x 6

And a bit of ab work...


Damn good workout...I think mainly cause I didn't do deads in the beginning...well, we'll see how my back development goes without deads. The main thing is to try and prevent my back from hurting though. Hope it works. Slowly I want to re-incorporate deads back into my workout though, but not until my back heals, if it does.

Yes, deadlifts have helped me a lot. I love them. But for a while I'm taking them out of my routine to see if my lower back will feel any different from that. It's been bothering me lately and deads hit it quite hard, so I'm gonna see if that helps. Hopefully assuming that it still grows without them, which I'm sure it will.

Except I'm taking out deads for a month, to see if those are the reason my back has been hurting. Then I'll slowly re-add them in. In the meantime, do you guys think I should add in good mornings? This is what my back workout looks like without deadlifts...

Drank last night. We mixed a whole shitload of hard a and beer and sprite and daquiri mix, plus I probably had 5 beers on top of that. I didn't really feel like drinking, but I did. It had been 2 weeks. I don't really find the appeal to drinking anymore...*shrug*

Training - KG Gym...

Chest:
Flat BB Bench - 133 x 6, 188.2 x 3, 221 x 6, 232.5 x 3.5 :mad:
Cable Crossovers - 100 x 10
Incline DB Bench - 59.4 x 6, 83.6 x 7!

Triceps:
Incline Skull Crushers - 86.6 x 6, 103 x 6, 114 x 6 (Weird ass #'s)
Dips - +44 x 10, +60.5 x 10, +88 x 6

Overall, decent workout, I guess. Poundages weren't spectacular or anything. But it did hit my chest and triceps hard and I am really hurting, in a good way.

Nice bench strength man. New PB with 235 right? Again, looking good. Keep up the hard work bro.

heathj
08-27-2002, 02:38 PM
Nah, not a new PB, but I never did 221 x 6 before I went up to that weight. My lifts will all be f*cked up now considering for the next 3 weeks before college I'll be working out at the KG gym. Pain in the ass, oh well. I'm gonna keep bench like that though.

133 x 6, 188.2 x 3, 221 x 6, then move up to 235 and do x number of reps and hopefully I can hit 3, and each week move up 5 lbs. until I hit 3 reps...I like this more. Hits my chest hard.

Hey man, just read that we have a back pain issue in common. I will definitely be following your journal now! Awesome progress since last year bro. How long has your back been bothering you for? I think I am going to start squatting again, very lightly to see what happens. Oh, I also am now using a lumbar roll (read: a foam cylinder pad that I put on my lower back when seated at work) it has seemed to help, at least a little. Might want to look into it? I got mine from my parents, but I'd bet you could get one from any PT supplier or whatever. Not sure how much you sit. I have an office job, so I sit for fairly long periods at a time.

BTW, I totally agree with you on the drinking thing. I'll have a beer with dinner or something, kind of often, but binge drinking it almost totally out for me. I no longer see the fun in it either.

Thanks...yeah, the drinking thing though, I'm only 18. You're what, 22? ;)

Got 11 whopping hours of sleep last night! Talked with the ex for about 2 hours...uggh...it seems as if one of her friends who is also a friend of mine was telling her stuff that I said about her. I think she made it seem worse then it was. Basically Jessie thought that I wanted to break up and so since she had certain reasons because she was so stressful and whatever, figured that since I *wanted* too, she might as well do it. Well, I didn't, and I told her that. She told me that maybe breaking up was a bad idea and she was sorry. Sorry? What the f*ck...you can't take it back, it's over and done with. Anyway, I'm taking a break from any contact with Jessie for a while and also the other girl(Elena)...even though they want to go to Bumbershoot with me on Friday, f*ck 'em.

Training

Back:
Pullups - +33 x 10, +55 x 7.5, +33 x 4(widegrip)
Bent Over DB Rows - 74.8 x 6, 83.6 x 6
Bent Over BB Rows - 133 x 6, 177 x 6

Biceps:
Preacher Curls - 59 x 6, 86.5 x 4
DB Hammer Curls - 44 x 6
Standing BB Curls - 99 x 6

Not too bad, I guess...bb rows slowly going up. I don't want to push it too quickly though. the other stuff...well it'll be weird for a while, cause I can't always see the exact weights I was doing the other weeks, cause it's hard to figure out KG to LBS real quick. So sometimes it'll be off a bit. Other then that not bad. My lower back bothered me a bit during that second set of bb rows, though. Uggh...

What the hell is Bumbershoot?

heathj
08-28-2002, 12:32 PM
http://www.bumbershoot.org/



Bumbershoot is Back - the Northwest's own artrageous four day party where Carnivale meets Concert Hall. The last true celebration of summer, Bumbershoot remains the greatest showcase of eclectic and excellent art, a place where 2,500 artists stalk the stages, grace the galleries and generally choreograph one of the most fun, wacky parties on the planet.

The stars converge at Seattle's gorgeous urban park - Seattle Center - from August 30 to September 2, creating a 74-acre playground where you can soak in the celebration. With literally thousands of experiences to choose from, Bumbershooters can run away to the circus, duck into a quiet theater for a world-class film festival, judge a poetry slam, break in some new dance moves, gab with authors, schmooze with artists, join a parade, make a salmon sock-puppet, or check out hundreds of first tier artists like Lou Reed, Jewel, Maceo Parker, Wyclef Jean, Sonic Youth, Jonny Lang, Lifehouse, Ramsey Lewis, and Ani DiFranco.

My advice: Go to the festival alone and pick up a new girl. ;)

heathj

Yeah, basically, like a huge ass outside festival. It's pretty bad ass. I took Friday and Saturday off of work, so I'll probably check it out with some people.

08-28-2002, 04:47 PM
Well, I'm not sure if I'm going to Bumbershoot or not. I haven't seen her in 11 days so maybe I'll feel different. I dunno. I don't want to completely shut her out though considering we were good friends before our little 3 month adventure. So it's still up in the air.

Anyway...I've noticed that my flexibility is shot to sh*t now. I can't stretch for ****. I think that's one reason I have back problems. I can't even touch my f*cking toes...Possibly because I haven't tried since November, but still. I used to be able to almost lay my hand flat on the ground, and now, no chance. I'm going to start stretching more often and try to get my flexibility back to where it used to be, hopefully this will help cure some of my back problems. We'll see how it goes.

08-29-2002, 01:53 AM
I am going to continue bulking for a few more days. I'll start cutting whenever I get my hands on some clen. Hopefully if not this coming week, the next one. I will cut for 4-6 weeks, however long I need, until my bodyfat is about 10%. Then I plan to do a major bulk until about March. Then I will cut down. Hopefully ending up around 195 @ 8% bodyfat. Hopefully. Here goes nothing. Another three stages around the corner. Cut, bulk, cut.

LOL Heath. I've never done a bulk/cut in my 3 years of bodybuilding. I simply started lifting at a scrawny 150 lbs. and have worked my way up to 185 where I am now. I probably need to eat more and put some weight on and then cut....but I'm simply not sold on bulk/cut method. I'm probably stupid, but I still believe I can put on the weight slowly without adding unnecessary bodyfat. That said, I need to get to 195 before Jan. 2003 myself and then cut for my show. And I'm simply not putting on any weight so I have to do something....and QUICK.

heathj
08-29-2002, 02:17 PM
Yeah I hate cutting, but to look sexy, I gotta ;) Wanna gain weight? Eat more :) Lots o' protein and carbs.

heathj
08-29-2002, 06:32 PM
Will be keeping track of feed eaten until I start cutting, then I'll stick to a nicely planned diet(Maybe NHE, maybe my own). Today I've eaten

breakfast -
2 cups honey bunches of oats w/ strawberries
2 cups milk

mid meal -
3 scoops strawberry protein(17.5g pro per scoop)
1 banana
2 cups milk

lunch -
2 cans tuna
2 slices wheat bread
2 tbsp fat free mayonnaise
1 leaf of lettuce

meal 4 -
2 eggs
2 slices wheat bread
1 cup milk

meal 5 -
2 cups honey bunches of oats w/ strawberries
1 cup milk
1 banana


Anyway, ordered my Yohimbine HCL and Taurine today. Clen, I'll order, hopefully tonight or very soon. I guess I won't be cutting for 1-2 weeks. Bah! I ordered:

-2 bottles of Yohimbine HCL (5mg, 100 caps) - Buy one get one free :D
-2 bottles of Taurine (500mg, 100 caps)

Well, I ended up hanging out with Jessie and Chelsea on Thursday. First time I had seen Jessie in almost 2 weeks. I needed that break. I still have feelings for her and she for I, at least she said so, so I don't know what will happen. I think each of us need to experience some of college first before anything else happens. See how our feelings hold up when we're seperated in different schools, etc...I also went to Bumbershoot with them on Friday. It was f*cking fun. Saw Fourth Avenue Jones, Nappy Roots and Wyclef John in concert there. I don't like Wyclef that much...oh well. It was cool. Quite crowded though. The whole day on Friday I barely ate anything. I had a bowl of cereal, this big slice of pizza(equal to 1.5-2) and some pasta Jessie made for me at around 11:30...Today I mowed the lawn and then hung out with my friend MacKenzie. We ate dinner at his house, stole some beer from the grocery store ;) and visited my sister and her boyfriend, hung out there for 1.5 hours, or so. It was a hella fun night. Listened to Eminem, Nappy and St. Lunatics the whole night...He is leaving on Monday for Japan. He's doing a study abroad for 8 months. So I won't see him for 8 damn months. That's a long ass time. I'll miss him, he's my best friend. Known him for 13 years. Sh*t that's a long time. Well, I'll end this 20 page journal entry. Until next time...Later kids!

Also...My ass was hurting the other day when I would bend over, walk, etc...I looked at it, and there's a big ass bruise on the left cheek. I do not know what it's from, but I do believe that it's pulling on my back, causing pain. Pain is from my left cheek up to my lower back. I think this has something to do with it. When I stretch or bend over to touch my toes, my ass hurts. I have no clue in hell how I got the bruise, but any suggestions on how to get rid of it? Maybe it's a muscle bruise? Do I just have to wait it out? Or would ice or heat be better..? Please help, thanks.

Gym closed today. It's memorial day. I'll workout chest/triceps tuesday..so I'll working tuesday/wednesday/friday.

On another note. I am trying to figure out how to sign up for the gym on campus and trying to find out if I can get a job there. WWU's website sucks ass for trying to find information. Hopefully I can get a job there. That'd be badass. If not, I think I'll apply for a food service job, since they're always looking for people. I just need a job. A gym would be excellent though. Wish me luck :)

I'm running out of protein too! My strawberry designer whey is almost gone(maybe 2-3 scoops left) and my post-workout protein has been gone for 2 weeks or so. Sh*t! Been eating tuna after I workout instead of whey and I don't know what I'll do once my designer whey runs out. Need to buy some more(obviously) and order some more whey from pf.com...

New diet starts tomorrow. Clen should be here within 2-3 days, so when it comes I'll start it. But I'll start my diet tomorrow. Fresh start on a Monday. We'll see how it goes. With the help of Robboe I comprised a different diet for training and non-training days. Basically the same with a few changes here and there. Tried to make cals about the exact same, but they're off a bit. More cals on training days. My clen cycle will go like this:

Day
1 20mcg
2 40mcg
3 60mcg
4-6 80mcg
7-14 100mcg
15-18 80mcg
19 60mcg
20 40mcg
21 20mcg

Depending on how it goes, I may up the dosages on days 4-18...possibly. I will also be taking 3g of taurine per day. When I come off my cycle of clen, I will be taking yohimbine. I will slowly ease myself into the yohimbine. I have them in tablets of 5mg, so the first day or two I'll be taking 5mg. Then up to 10mg, then to 15mg and then to 20mg, where I will stop and take 20mg until day 35.

Training Diet:

1 scoop whey
1/2 cup oatmeal
10 oz. gatorade (pre)

2 scoops whey
36g dextrose/maltodextrin (20 sweet tarts)
30 oz. gatorade
5g creatine
8g glutamine

1 can tuna
1 tbsp fat-free mayo
1 cup lettuce
2 tsp flax

200g turkey or chicken
1 oz. peanuts

2 whole eggs
1 scoop whey

1 oz. peanuts
200g cottage cheese

1 can tuna
1 tbsp fat-free mayo
1 cup lettuce
2 tsp flax

Macro breakdown is about: 245g pro/62g fat/174g carbs
(~2409 cals)


Non-Training days:

1 scoop whey
2 whole eggs
1 tsp flax

1 scoop whey
100g cottage cheese
1 oz. peanuts

1 can tuna
1 tbsp fat-free mayo
1 cup lettuce
2 tsp flax

200g turkey or chicken
1 oz. peanuts

2 whole eggs
1 oz. peanuts
1 scoop whey

1 oz. peanuts
200g cottage cheese

1 can tuna
1 tbsp fat-free mayo
1 cup lettuce
2 tsp flax

Macro breakdown is about: 261g pro/106.5g fat/43g carbs (~2174 cals)

Diets may also be altered while I'm sticking to them. Things also that may be a factor is next weekend when I will be camping Friday-Sunday, but I'll make my best out of it. I will be drinking, excessively though ;) And the weekend following. The 22nd I move into my dorm, so that week may be a little messed up. Other then that I plan to be spot on. Wish me luck!

Heath, dude...really you are not that fat right now. Looking good really. Just from the relaxed shots I would say you need to concentrate on your lats some and on trying (key word there) to get those shoulders wider. That isn't easy to do (seems some are blessed in that respect) but maybe work on more side lateral stuff. Otherwise, you have made outstanding progress and growth in the last year. Quads have great cuts in them.

Chest:
Flat BB Bench - 133 x 6, 188.2 x 3, 221 x 6, 237.7 x 2.5 (Goddamn...I had 3, got stuck halfway up again)
Cable Crossovers - 100 x 10
Incline DB Bench - 66 x 6, 90.2 x 5.5!!

Triceps:
Incline Skull Crushers - 81 x 6, 103 x 6, 119.5 x 6
Dips - +44 x 6, +66x 6, +99 x 3.5

Hot damn..db's jumped up a whole sh*tload. Yay for me. Diet going good, considering I've only had 2 meals(pre and post). I bought some protein to drink after I workout. Only to find out that after I open the f*cking thing, I find out it's f*cking soy protein. Tastes like sh*t. Good thing it was only a 1 lb. container. F*CK! Oh well...f*cking unflavored sh*t from proteinfactory tasted 100 times better. Why can't they write "Soy protein" on the front? Bah! Clen isn't here yet...hopefully within a day or two. BB...my lats weren't flexed "at all" in those pictures...so how would that give you any idea of how big they are...maybe you can tell, but I don't see how you can :)

Oh, also...when I went into the Supp store, the lady asks me if I'm still looking for a job. Well, f*ck. 3 months ago I was. 6 months ago I was. Now? I leave in 13 days. Damn't! ....

It was just a guess looking at the relaxed pictures. Anyway, since you didn't ask for what I thought anyway.....just disregard the statement.:D

But seriously, you have made excellent progress the past year and your strenght is very good.

Hmm..yeah, well, one day lasted. This is what I say to my diet: **** you. It's not that I'm quitting, cause I am in a sense, but then again I'm not. There's too much sh*t going on in my life right now. Too many complicated things going on to stick to a perfect diet. I'm going camping, all my friends are leaving, girls, I'm leaving for college. I'm basically starting a new life and adding a strict diet that I make myself stick to will make it even more stressful. When I do this diet I want it to be perfect and I know in the next 5 weeks my effort will not be 100% because that is impossible for me right now. I am not that fat right now and I will just slowly bulk over the winter, then in about March I will use the clen and I will use this diet. Then I will not have so much sh*t going on, at least I hope not. At least I won't have to deal with leaving for college. Anyway, sorry Chigs for ruining your experiment but right now life is more important that losing 4% bodyfat. Thanks for helping me out though. I will use the diet in the future. *High five to Robboe*

So yeah...the other night I find out Jessie still really likes me and that her breaking up with me was a mistake. I still like her a lot, but she did break up with me. Plus we're going to different colleges. I talked to Sav a bit about it. Thanks Sav ;) I figure even though I still like her and we do make a good couple...even people think we're perfect together...I think I'll just 'fool' around or whatever and not make anything serious. Give it a month or so of being at college single and then POSSIBLY considering 'going out' again, as in boyfriend/girlfriend. I think I need to have a serious talk with her soon though. See what her feelings are on this whole situation and everything. See what she wants to do also. Uggh....fun stuff this life is!

Well, yeah...Life has been shitty lately, I guess. Things going on, school is only one week away too! Had a nice long talk with Jessie last night, kinda helped ease me. That's one person I'll always be able to talk too, it's great to have someone to talk too. Talking away your problems is probably one of the greatest feelings you can have. Well, we came to a conclusion at least. We both wanted each other to be the first person we had sex with, now I don't know if it'll happen or not. But still, at least I know someone wants to do it with me :p Other things have been going on. I haven't gotten drunk in a really long time, which is good I guess. There's been many a parties this last week though. One on Monday, one on Tuesday, one of Friday and two on Saturday...Most I drank throughout all of those was 1 beer and 1 shot. Wow..impressive. My tolerance will be **** for college. At least I'm cheaper then I was. My drink of choice for college will probably be High Gravity Steel Reserve. 12 pack = $7. 8.1% alcohol per 12 oz. Not bad...Basically it's like getting a case for $7. It's not THAT terrible either :) Almost got everything set up with my roommate, we just need to buy a fridge and tv. I move in next Sunday. I can't wait, but also, in a way I'm afraid. I want to get out of my house and away from my parents, but I'm afraid of surviving. I don't have a steady job(yet) and I don't know how I'm going to raise so much money. My sister said she might be able to set me up with a job next summer working on a charter boat that her friend's dad owns. I'd make something around 6 grand in 2 months. Basically paying for a year's tuition. So I am definately thinking about that. Other then that, I need to get a damn good job up in Bellingham this year so I can make plenty of money to pay off this year of college. Well there's my ramble for the day, if you read it, hope you enjoyed that little window into the past few days of my life and my future goals for money making :)

Anyway, took some measurements today. They're shitty, yes, but growing!

Calves: 17.25"
Quads: 25.75"
Waist: 34.75" :mad: (Oh well, still have a four pack even with that big of a waist)
Chest: 43"
Shoulders: 50.75"
Arms: 15.15" :mad: Shitty, but growing :D
Forearms: 13"
Neck: 15.75"

Hmm...so yeah my arms and neck are still slowly catching up to my calves...hehe...hopefully by the time I cut down, my arms will be at least 16". That'd be nice. Waist is big I guess, but it's always been big, but not fat. I mean, I have 14% bodyfat and have a 34.75" waist...oh well. It looks ace at about 32.5" or so. Anyway, there ya have it.

Especially since I can fit into size 34 pants...My abs do stick out a lot though....anyway:

Neck: 16.125"
Shoulders: 52.5"
Chest: 43.5"
Upper Arm: 15.125"
Forearm: 12.5"
Waist: 37" :eek:
Legs: 25.5"
Calves: 17.5"

Took bone measurements for the f*ck of it....

Wrist: 6.75"
Ankle(above): 9.75"

Gotta be precise...I want results! However miniscule...Tried looking for old measurements but couldn't find them...anyway, I'm growing.

Heath, how are things going for you lately? Did you get all those small problems ironed out? Hey, I just wanted to ask you if you thought the problem you were having might be scietic nerve related? I had a problem with this years ago and had alot of the pain in the same areas you are describing. Just curious. Later bud.

If any of you are worried that I'm not working out still...well, I am :) Getting bigger by the day and I'm lovin' it. Now that I'm home I rarely go on the internet, so I'm not really posting my workouts or anything. I am drinking lots of beer too :) While I've been home, it's been about 3-4 days per week. Tomorrow will be filled with lots of boozin', can't wait! School is going well, I did decent for the first quarter. Ended up with two B's and two C+'s. Not too shabby, I guess, especially for going to some classes only 2-3 days per week...I go back to school on Friday and then I will start posting my workouts again. Have also had some problems with the ladies....three of them are what I consider three of my best friends (one being my ex), and haven't seen them in over a month. They don't call anymore and one of them leaves on the 3rd for Idaho for college, and won't really come back until next summer. I dunno what's up with that, or why none of them are calling me...but whatever, **** it. Hope you all are doing well and have a great New Year...especially a great New Year's Eve, I know I will. Later!

Excellent. Skipped Friday workout...not feeling it. Instead, this weekend I decided to smoke about 10 cigarettes, and a total of about 26 bowls between a bunch of people. That is about 3/8 of an ounce plus a tiny bit more...**** me...I am about to start quitting. Gonna try to stop buying for a month, once I'm done with this last sack. Wish me luck. :D

Damn...****ing good workout. Hurts :D

Went to a chiropractor today. She said that my hips are unaligned and that's why my ass has been hurting so much. I guess since they are unaligned that stretches out the tendon on one side, making it hurt. She adjusted it, so hopefully it heals in the next few days. If not, I got another appointment on Monday. Hopefully this whole situation is fixed and I get to start doing squats again!!

Well the inevitable happened...I got kicked and banned out of my dorm and 4 surrounding dorms. I can never come back to them without being considered a trespasser. I got moved to a different part of campus. I have to be out by Friday. This should be fun....especially right in the middle of the week I have a few midterms in. They say college is stressful...they're the ones that make it so f*cking stressful. Can't they just let me have a f*cking beer in my room? ....

sixteen days later...here i am

cannot lift weights or run for an entire month. i was planning bulking the rest of that month and then cutting for summer, so this ruins my plans. so i guess i'll just see what happens and still cut when i was planning on doing it. anyway i can still do pushups, etc...so i designed a routine that i will do each monday and friday...here's what i did today:

Set 1: 50 pushups, 50 situps, 15 pullups, 15 dips
Set 2: 15 pushups(triangle), 50 situps, 15 pullups, 15 dips
Set 3: 20 pushups(wide, hands facing out), 50 situps, 15 pullups, 15 dips


took a rest period of like 3 minutes in between each set...like 20-30 seconds in between each exercise

anyway time to chug a shake, shower this stank off me, enjoy my double room by myself since i have no roommate, (cause i didn't get an exchange student!) and then i will go smoke some herbal supplements that make me feel great

peace out yo!

Went to the doctor. he diagnosed me and thinks that my pyriformis muscle, spasmed and is incredibly tight. over the last 8 months it has not healed at all. he referred me to a physical therapist and hopefully with meetings two times a week for a month with stretching and **** i can stretch it out. :thumbup: wish me luck!!

heathj
03-20-2003, 04:13 PM
Well, went to the physical therapist on tuesday. she gave me this stretch that i am supposed to do twice a day. it should stretch out my muscle. she also said that working out my upper body would not affect my leg at all, so i think i'll start doing that again...so i am going to download the free 10 day pass to 24 hour fitness and start going probably on monday and then once i go back to school, start up at the school gym again. **** that chiropractor, i lost two months of hard lifting and i was cruising!!! **** that ****...i am so mad, whatever. anyway, i'm at home now and ihave spring break until about march 30th is when igo back. i love school...it's so weird being home, but i get to eat steak when i am home!!! time to eat my parents bankrupt. also i am going to design my diet for when i get back to school...so far this is what i'm thinking:

meal 1 - protein bar w/ pills and lots of water
meal 2 - turkey sandwich w/ two glasses milk
meal 3 - turkey sandwich w/ two glasses milk
meal 4 - 1-2 cans of tuna w/ lots of water
meal 5 - protein bar w/ lots of water (maybe)
meal 6 - turkey sandwich w/ two glasses milk
also a post-workout shake and throw some flax seed oil in throughout the day. but that's basically what it will be. so between 220-260 grams of protein or so. i'll try to make it around 2000-2500 calories or so. plan is to drop 7-8% bodyfat and about 20 pounds by june 13th.

i am not quite sure though...but this will be a lot better then eating all the **** ass cafeteria food.

rookiebldr

heathj
03-21-2003, 05:50 PM
Yeah that is a sh*tload of turkey, rookie. Basically it's the only good food I can eat at school. I hate eating at the cafeteria. There's not much choice I have though when it comes to food at the cafeteria. Either I eat ****ty food that is terrible for me, full of fat and carbs with barely any protein, or I eat a turkey sandiwch instead. Hopefully I won't have any problem with it. The hardest thing will be sticking to it over the weekends, since instead of the cafeteria having six meals on the weekdays, it goes to having two meals on the weekends..:rolleyes:

Thanks CoCoa, I hope everything goes smoothly and I fix this quick, so I can do squats and deads again! They are my life.

heathj
03-21-2003, 05:51 PM
Oh, also, I got 45 free pills of clen, so I will be using that plus some yohimbine hcl and taurine, which was what I was gonna use a while ago, but then clen got seized. I would love to buy more clen and make it a longer cycle, but I cannot afford it and my friend gave me these for free, so I'll just do a short little experiment and see how well it affects me, about a half month or a month into my cutting.

Consider what you are saying. You haven't benched in over a month and you lost very little strength (I am not sure here). If that is the case, it should give you some insight into your training. Could it be you are chronically overtrained? Think about it.

I lost very little strength on bb bench. I lost over 15 pounds on each side on db bench...I wouldn't say I'm overtrained. I only workout one bodypart a week, also. I think my bb bench strength stayed very close to what it was, was because of the fact that even while I was not lifting weights, I was still doing pushups, dips, pullups and situps, which I think helped keep that strength up a little.

Cutting starts Tuesday. Have some clen, hydroxycut, yohimbine hcl and taurine. Won't start using clen until about may. Cutting will be 75 days or longer if possible. Measurements and goals below:

Current (Goal for 6-14-03)
Weight - 210-212 (190)
Bodyfat - ~15% (8%)
Chest - 45.125" (45")
Waist - 37" (33")
Arms - 15.5" (16")
Forearms - 13.125" (13.5")
Calves - 17.5" (18") - If I can start squats again..*prays*
Thighs - 25" (26") - If I can start squats again..*prays*

Well there ya have it. My waist is way too big, but I ain't incredibly fat...Pictures? Probably not, but possibly. Definitely when I am done cutting though. Diet will be as I posted in a previous post:

meal 1 - protein bar w/ pills and lots of water
meal 2 - turkey sandwich w/ two glasses milk
meal 3 - turkey sandwich w/ two glasses milk
meal 4 - 1-2 cans of tuna w/ lots of water
meal 5 - protein bar w/ lots of water (maybe)
meal 6 - turkey sandwich w/ two glasses milk
also a post-workout shake and throw some flax seed oil in throughout the day. but that's basically what it will be. so between 220-260 grams of protein or so. i'll try to make it around 2000-2500 calories or so.

Anyway, April 1st is the first day I start! Monday I go to physical therapy and look for jobs for a few hours at some gyms and other places around town. PEace.

Friday, drank a fifth of Captain Morgan. Was pretty drunk...went to a couple of my friends house. They just moved out of the dorms...5 chicks in one house :thumbup: Diet was perfect other then the drinking. I also smoked! :mad: Oh well, at least I'm not addicted anymore and smoking 2-3 times per day.

Saturday, woke up and missed breakfast. On Saturdays at school there is only 2 meals instead of 7 or whatever, on weekdays. So I felt like **** and barely ate anything and had low protein! Pisses me off, I hate school cafeteria. Went to another one of my friends houses and they had about 30 people over, didn't drink a single drop. Wasn't too bad not drinking.

Gonna try to limit drinking to once per week at the most. I need to get my diet as perfect as possible and I want the best results I can get. I also will try to make smoking non-existant, it won't be as hard as I thought.

Today is Sunday and I have to go get my car and hope it will start, then turn in my resume to a gym and then do whatever. Read maybe.

Hmm...yesterday was my cheat day and I cheated a lot, some of because I was drunk..bah!! The days food consisted of:

2 pieces french toast, eggs, tator tots, apple juice, milk
1 can tuna
2 protein bars
~20 french fries, banana, two glasses milk
Spaghetti w/ Meat Sauce, salad, breadsticks (Olive Garden)
10 bud lights (some f*cker stole 2...)
3 donuts (haven't had one in forever!) and half bag doritos chips

Not a lot of protein though, probably like 160g or something...lots of carbs though :( Oh well, I'm not sure about drinking next weekend. I was ready to beat some ass last night though. These girls that I'm friends with have a couple other guy friends and they constantly talk **** and just completely ignore me and my friends. Last night almost put me over the top but I didn't really want to fight in their house. I was just ready to f*ck some **** up, and we would've.
