Well i have decided to start a journal... this will hopefully prove better than scrap paper.

weight:155
height:5'6''

yesterday was chest, didnt' keep track of every set, but remember

225X4
245X1

i think i tired myself out some with the 225X4, so gonna go to 260 next time i think (actually i think next weights are 255 and 265, so we'll see how lucky i'm feeling)

oh did like 5 sets db incline/flat benching, 1 set flies, 1 set dips, 1 set tris (tris are still getting back into lifting so going easy on them now)

jazer80

and i'm currently beginning my 3rd week bulking, which seems to be going pretty well.
Taking around 3000K daily, some whey, some weight gainer, and the rest is almost entirely lean, whole foods. no processed ****, all fresh, the foreman seems to never get a chance to cool down. supplements as of now are multi vitamins (1 1/2 servings daily), fish body oils (6 pills daily), vitamin C (2500 mg daily), creatine (3-4 grams before workout), diet pills (mix between w/ + w/o ephedra, they're all just thrown in the same bottle, before workouts; 2 or 3 depending how into it i'm feeling). just finished my zmass last night; think i've been thoroughly convinced that though they could help a little, they aren't really worth anything dollar wise.

took yesterday off, wearing myself too thin lately... today did my first real squats/ straightlegged deadlifts w/ a real bar, vs doing dumbbells in my apt. Just did 2 sets of each, with 155lbs for squatting, 185 for deadlifting. just working on getting form down for now, getting used to the motion.

squat
155X?, 155X?

deadlift
185X?, 185X?

Calfs
150(machine)X12, 9

leg curls

:spam: good luck on the lifting and journal dude! :thumbup:

jazer80
04-07-2004, 08:33 PM
thanks man... i like lifting like wbb/max ot, i've always lifted with lots of reps, never ate enough, and never rested long enough. i seem to be having better luck with this. my old max was 225, and that was while on cycle (though i never tried more, but it wouldn't have been much more). i put up 245 the other day and think i'll be able to do 265 next time i try, we'll see

jazer80
04-07-2004, 08:34 PM
and i weigh a little less now too

had a few hours between shifts so got in a shoulder workout...

Dumbbell press
60X10,9,7,7

lateral dumbbell raise
25X13,11

forward dumbbell raise
25X9

bodyweight holding steady around 154/155, not jumping as quickly as earlier (was 146 about 3 weeks ago)... maybe some of the weight gain was from quitting cigarettes which was also 3 weeks ago??

jazer80
04-10-2004, 01:34 PM
4/10 Back

Deadlifts
185X11
205X9

Barbell rows
65X13
75X11

Lat pull down
100X12
120X8

Shrugs (w/ bar in front)
135X13 (kind of a warm up)
155X15

Shrugs (w/ bar behind me)
155X15 (pulled something in my back here)

Biceps/forearms

sitting, straight backed curls
35X7

sitting, straight backed hammers
35X5

hurt my back a little trying shrugs w/ bar behind me, don't know what the fuk i was thinking... like it's really gonna make a big difference where the bar is, and now i might have fuct myself.. doesn't hurt too much, just kind of annoying, but these kinds of things can always get worse. next time i'll just stick to frontwards. took a hot shower which helped a little, gonna go on a search for ibuprofen or something to help it a little. All weights were still kind of low, and i'm getting way more reps than i should be, but still getting used to the bar, don't wanna rush it and end up screwing myself.

(sidenote: been feeling much better since earlier this week when i acquired melatonin. 4-5 grams (or mg's?) sublingual give me a great night of sleep, plus a buddy said he could get me some seraquil(i have no idea how it's spelled, but that's how it sounds), which should be able to knock me out well.. important thing is that it looks like i might have finally beat insomnia through drugs

jazer80

jazer80

jazer80
04-11-2004, 10:20 PM

well tomorrow gonna see the university psychiatrist, try and get sum prescription sleeping pills, maybe xanax or something. last night took 50 mg seroquel and a few melatonin, sat in bed for almost two hours!! just can't get myself to fall asleep, i wonder why the hell this is?

04-12-2004, 09:43 PM
Tough luck on the sleeping front. I've found the melatonin works great for me.

Congrats on the benching PR. Huge bench!

debussy
04-13-2004, 08:18 PM
umpl is a just a couple me and a couple of friends. it stands for umass powerlifting. we started it pretty much as a joke since we're such gym rats. we're gonna max out at the end of the semester in a powerlifting meet fashion. youre welcome to join us. im hoping to put up 245 on the bench :strong: ... its no 265 though

jazer80
04-13-2004, 09:41 PM
umass power lifting ? that's a great idea! let me know when you guys are lifting sometime (im me @ jazer80 on aol). anyways no workout this afternoon. got a script for xanax today, hopefully the insomnia will be defeated.. well time to eat dinner # 3

doing standing barbell military pressing was really good. never done those before, and i feel like they have more to offer than dumbbell pressing, maybe just because it's something new for me. either way my shoulders are dead; great workout

jazer80
04-15-2004, 09:36 PM
well, haven't eaten any food since 3:30 today, which is alarming. i'm gonna try to get down a shake; tried earlier but yakked it up right away. don't know what the hell the problem is, but i'm on my 3rd day of xanax, 1st day of anabolx (testosterone support formula), 1st day also of yohimbe, and first of CLA. actually took a SAN lipolytic edge diet pill too. prolly just the combo. hope feel better tomorrow cuz i'm working from 9ish til midnight

Don't know why i attempted working out as i'm still kinda sick, and probably just set myself back a few more days. lesson learned i guess, but seems like i've learned countless lessons on impatience that never seem to stick.

jazer80
04-20-2004, 09:47 AM
damn i finally feel better!! can't believe i was sick since like thursday. mad long for a stomach bug. gotta weigh myself, bet i lost like at least 5 pounds, as i ate less than what i usually eat in a day over 4/5 days. think i got rid of that little excess i was worried about hahahha. found out they have a WRESTLING CLUB here at amherst, which is huge to me as that was my life back in high school, and i haven't wrestled in 3 years. i prolly suk now but it'll be fun to mess around. might try lifting again around thursday, try wrestling friday (who am i kidding i'll prolly try going tomorrow though i shouldn't)

debussy
04-22-2004, 09:06 AM
oh **** man. i used to wrestle in high school too. i think the wrestling club is more of a tournament than a club. i participated my freshman year and got 2nd. i stopped going after that, because id rather not tease myself hehe.

jazer80
04-22-2004, 09:36 AM
no they had a tournament, but hten i found out that monday/wed/fri they wrestle at like 4 or 430 @ boyden

jazer80
04-22-2004, 09:37 AM
i'm dying to go but since i found out i've either been sic or working, and will be working on friday too of this week. and monday of next week, think i 'm gonna try to go next wed though

jazer80
04-27-2004, 09:05 AM
very good. i love tarentino's movies; the second one was good in that it had more substance i guess you could say, and was far less violent / gory than the first one. i guess i'd say the first was better, but you gotta see them both

well, they decided to close the gyms on my campus until the 30th. sux. already skipped a legs session, and now they're up again, and no where to do them. gonna have to end up doing them on my leg extension machine and some lunges. well anyways here's yesterday's workout, done at home of course w/ adj db's

Back / Bi's

20 chinups (or pullups? the ones w/ palms facing away, like on lat pull downs)

DB rows
50 X 11
55 X 9

angled db rows
60 X 7
60 X 7

shrugs
60 X 11
60 X 13 (yeah that's all i can fit on my handles until i get thinner plates)

seated hammers
40 X 4
40 X 3

and a bunch of wrist work, and for lower back i kind of just put a 25 plate on head and bent over, w/ my knees bent a lot, mimicing hyper movement, worked decently. oh and reverse sit ups and supermans.

jazer80
05-23-2004, 06:01 PM
well, still no gym.. attempting to do legs @ home w/ db's and leg extension machine.

3 sets of db squats (if someone is reading, please check my thread under powerlifting, up around 8, about whether or not these are ok to do - i'll put pics of form)

1set db lunges

2 sets calf raises holding db's

-----------(all db sets are w/ 60 lbs, max my handles hold cuz plates are too thick)

leg extensions
85 X 11,14 (second set was way higher tempo)(why does leg extension induce more of a burning sensation than any other exercise?)

leg curls
85 X 5

jazer80
05-24-2004, 07:05 PM

still working at home so had to sub in workouts that i had the weight for, like flies, for things like db press where didn't have enough weight

45 X 6

db incline flyes

good workouts. it sucks working out at home... im in the same situation. you do what you can do though. anyway, when are you gonna max out on squat and dl?

jazer80
05-24-2004, 08:06 PM
hahaha when the gym opens!!!! jk. to be honest, i'm still relatively new to squats/dl's, don't quote me but i'd guess within a month or so. ya it sux working out at home. i bought this nice incline/decline bench w/ preacher (even though i hate preacher curls) and leg curl/extension, adjustable plastic coated db handles, weights, and now it's a coat rack... although the punching bag turned out to be a great investment!

Happy birthday!!

Sorry about the poison ivy.

jazer80
06-02-2004, 07:27 PM
well still haven't worked out. damn poison ivy. got steroids for it today, hopefully that'll be gone tomorrow. what perfect timing, started on my birthday, which was also the last day before my summer job(s), which is heavy to say the least. working 70 this week at 3 different places, so don't know when the hell i'm gonna have a chance. i see myself having seriuos probs trying to be strict about diet and lifting this summer. yesterday and today i ate like crap

jazer80
06-03-2004, 02:45 PM
got in a quick session, did chest / shoulders. shoulders numbers suk, must be because of wasting energy on chest. 1) maybe my shoulders lost energy during db presses, or 2) maybe i'm used to arching backwards a little on standing military bb press, and my weakened chest hurt the lifts. hopefully it's #1.

chest
db press
85 X 8
90 X 6

db flyes
45 X 5

pathetic back / bicep workout

20 chin/pull ups (whatever ones your palms face AWAY from you)

db row
60 X 7 good form
60 X ?, ? (form was all over the place to get a good burn, like going real slow, then squeezing at max tension spot of the movement, trying to make due)

shrugs
60 X ?
60 X ? (same as before, extra slow contractions, pause at topmost)

random deadlifting motions, sumo leg stance, w/ (2) 60 lbs dbs between legs, just trying to hurt my back. i hate working out in my apt.

one set of regular chin/ pull ups for my biceps.
the way these workouts are going and how my diet has been, you guys are prolly gonna see a ****ty summer from me. i've been making slow and steady gains for months, and it's been great, but i don't know if i'll be able to allot the necessary time towards training / dieting to keep serious like i've been. worried about this, but i may end up doing ****ty little workouts like these to stay where i'm at now for a few months.

2 or 3 days ago legs/back, mix of (legs) extensions, curls, calf raises, and sumo deadlift/squatting db things. (back) rows, shrugs, standing hypers w/ 25 lb plate on head, and rev hypers (improv) over one of my girlfriend's big rubber balls you do sit ups on ( think that's what she uses it for), kind laid face down w/ ball supporting me by stomach, holding my bench, and attempting rev hypers.

today: chest
db flyes
50X10, 8, 6
incline flyes
50 X 3

db pullovers (incline, thought i'd try it this way for a change, turned out to be inferior to flat)
60X9
reg db pullovers
60 X 8, 7

hiking. 25 minutes of decent hiking, then we got lost, totally off path, found our way to a road in the middle of nowhere, so split up and sprinted trying to find car. did about 15 more minutes of running, pretty much til i couldn't run anymore.

legs / lower back

3 sets each of leg curls, extensions, and calf raises.

3 sets of rev hypers over 'swiss ball'

lost good amount of sensation in my hands for 3 days in a row now, hoping maybe it was a pinched nerve, so inadvertantly discovered badass exercise while doing the hypers. instead of just moving your legs straight up, i did them to either side, and splitting them, alternating around between all these. worked way better than regular hypers, should've been obvious since it's like that for your stomach

well did a few sets of leg curls/extensions yesterday on lunch break, and did some rows / incline press today on break, starting to 'get back into it'. my weight is down to low 50's, maybe 51 / 52. sux. still doing the occasional boxing, a little less than weekly, working 65-70 hr weeks lately, and when i'm home all i want to do is eat and sleep. i have also stopped taking creatine, which could account for some of the weight loss. i've been on it for so long that i figured i might as well take a break while i'm not really lifting at all, that way i can 'clean out', and also it will be cool to see it work again once school starts (sept 8th) and i start my NEW ROUTINE!!! gonna do 2 days lifting weekly, one upper half one lower half, then boxing weekly, and wrestling as often as i have time for, which will be up to 3 times weekly. the plan is to do compound movements, i'm thinking upper half will be : 2X dips, 1Xincline press, 1X military press, 1X decline press, 1X pullovers, 2X rowing, 1Xpulldown, 1Xshrug, or something along those lines anyways. legs will be 3-4 X squat, 1-2Xcalfs, 1Xdeadlift, 1Xsumo deadlift, 1-2 X good mornings. boxing will still be high intensity 'balls to the wall' for 20 minutes, i think wrestling is about an hour monday/wed/fri, not sure which i'll make it to because haven't gotten class/work schedules in order yet
