Alright, I haven't been very dedicated lately. I've been swarmed with minor injuries that put me our for a few weeks and I just haven't been able to really get back into the groove if things. I've decided to ditch my old journal and just start over. Here's my stats:

Jeez, our leg strength is very very similar. WB.

01-24-2005, 12:19 AM
Yes very close indeed. The weird thing is, before I messed up my knee my squat PR was 225x2. Now, first day back after six weeks out I put out 6 reps going to parallel.

Today's Session: Chest

Flat Barbell Bench Press

Chest Dips
BW x 10
BW+25 x 6
BW+27.5 x 5
BW+27.5 x 3

Overall good session today. I was very happy to get the 195, hoping for 205 within a month or so. The first part of the left was extremely easy, but the lockout took awhile. I think if I strengthen my triceps more I'll get the 205 in no time. Eating a huge bowl of oatmeal and drinkin' a shake right now, I know I'm gonna be sore as hell tomorrow.

Dumbell Rows
75 x 9
75 x 8
80 x 4

Cable Rows
120 x 10
135 x 8
135 x 6

I'm very happy with the PRs on the deadlifts. When I went to do 295 my first attempt I didn't even budge the bar from the ground, I wasn't expecting it to be that heavy. I took a 10 second rest then repped it twice, I think I could've done 3 or 4 but I didn't want to hurt myself. I was dead by the time I got to the cable rows, so I couldn't do as much weight as I have in the past. Overall a good workout.

Hockey66
01-25-2005, 11:32 PM
A word of advice to people:

NEVER play hockey after deadlifts! My lower back and legs were killing me! I could barely skate, and every couple seconds I would have to stand straight up and relax my back. I played like ****, it was horrible.

I got my cardio for the day though, or the week, or whenever I play next.

Nito
01-26-2005, 10:44 AM
WOWOWOW, you got some CRAZY strength for 15. I am VERY impressed! Whats your BF% at bro?

I can't believe the strength of you 15-year-olds. Awesome work man. How long have you been training?

Hockey66
01-27-2005, 08:32 PM
I've been training since the beginning of September, so about 5 months, with some short breaks due to injury. I worked out for a month last year but really had no clue what I was doing. I owe a lot of my strength to my training partner. I was naturally way bigger/stronger than him but he started catching up, now I push myself every day to stay ahead, and he pushes himself to catch up. Sort of like a little competition between us.

Good workout today besides some pain in my left shoulder. It helped take my mind off of exams and relieve some stress. We have to take provincial exam in grade 10 now and our marks go on our transcripts, so it sucks. I hate exams. :mad:

Yesterday's Session: Legs

I went to my friends house yesterday and ended up sleeping there, so I couldnt post my workout until today.

Squats
135 x 10
185 x 10
205 x 10
225 x 6

100 x 10
100 x 8

Standing Calf Raises
200 x 20
300 x 10
300 x 10
300 x 9

My calves just arent growing so I decided to see if they'd respond better to two exercises. I also tried pausing for a few seconds at the positive and the negative and it killed. They were cramping up and I could barely walk, and today they kill. No PR on the squats unfortunately, next week Ill hit 8 reps.

Nice last 2 sessions. How were your exams? And in what subjects? Mine have been pretty easy so far.

Hockey66
01-30-2005, 05:34 PM
I haven't taken any exams, but I have math and science this semester.

I'm getting 97.2% in math so all I have to do is pass the exam to get an A in that class, but I'm aiming to stay in the high 90's. Science I'm doing doing crappy in. Im getting somewhere inbetween 88 - 92%, I'm not sure where. Science is usually my strong point, but my teacher ****ed our class over this year.

What exams have you taken?

Canadian Crippler
01-30-2005, 11:31 PM
Holy crap... I'm getting mid 70s in math, and that's much higher than my grades average lol.

I took math and english exams, and have one for engineering this coming morning.

Today's Session: Chest

Flat Barbell Bench Press
135 x 6
165 x 6
170 x 5
175 x 4
175 x 2

Incline Barbell Bench Press
135 x 6

Flat Dumbell Flies
40 x 8
45 x 4
45 x 3

Chest Dips
BW x 12
27.5 x 6
30 x 4

I'm not too sure what happened on the last bench set, I guess my chest was really exhausted. I thought I had it for 4 again forsure, but I couldn't get the 3rd up.

During all the presses and dips I got an amazingly horrible pain in my left wrist, causing me to have longer than normal breaks. I'm not sure what it was, but it was a piss off.

Also, since I started working out, a pointing bump has begun developing on the inside of my left wrist. Some people say it's just a calcium deposit, but it worries me. Any input would be helpful.

Today's Session: Back

Pullups

Deadlifts
135 x 10
225 x 10
275 x 6
295 x 3
305 x 2
315 x 1

Dumbell Rows

75 x 8
80 x 5

Seated Cable Rows
120 x 10
135 x 8
150 x 6
150 x 5

I took a few days off from training due to hockey, didn't want to be sore for my games or anything.

The deadlifts felt good today. I don't know if I can really count the 315 because my grip started to slip 1/2 way up and I had to quickly let go of the bar resting it on my thigh and regrip. I must say it took some skill to do it without dropping the bar lol. I'll try with straps next time.

The deadlifts took a lot out of me so I didn't pull as much as I thought I would for the rest of the session, overall I was happy though. Now time to eat again!

Canadian Crippler
02-03-2005, 08:35 PM
Nice PR!!!

I was aswell using 75s and 80s on DB Rows, then I stopped and worked on perfecting my form. This means basically no shoulder movement, just the arm moving back and the shoulders rolling. It's alot, alot harder. I dropped down to 50s and 55s, but I heard from big guys that this'll widen your back like mad.

Hockey66
02-03-2005, 08:40 PM
CC: Yeah I was using 90's awhile back, then someone told me to slow down the motion and use no momentum/shoulder movement, so it doesn't look like I'm trying to start a lawnmower. I dropped to 65s and slowly worked my way back up. I love the feeling of it way better, thought I think my form could be slightly better.

Coke

This session really bugged me. On the skullcrushers first set I got 75 x 10 easily, then I got for 85, which I did 6 times last week, and my arms collapse and I drop the ****in' weight on my forehead, leaving a nasty bump. I go back down to 75, and I can't even do one rep. My arms collapsed again, lucking my spotter was alert this time. I don't get it, its like I suddenly lost all tricep strength.

Stephen Riddington
02-04-2005, 11:09 PM
Geez, those are pretty heavy weights, you're lifting bro.

Ouch on the nasty bump from the skullcrushers, I guess it lived up to its name. :)

CC, if I keep slacking off the way I am you'll have me pwned on everything soon.

CC - Thanks man

Cocoa - I think I'm going to wait a bit before I get straps because since I've started deadlifting I think I've put about 1/2 and inch on my forearms, and I love the pump I get from it.

Anyways, today I did some random cardio, abs, obliques and calves. It was actually supposed to be a rest day but I had nothing better to do.

Hey, I was just reading some of your earlier entries. I saw that one about the left wrist, I have the same problem, and I do play hockey. I haven't seen a trainer or anything, but my theory is its from holding your stick one handed. Are you a righty?

Nito
03-25-2005, 07:39 PM
Hockey, do u play AAA? AA? A? Select? Houseleague?

Hockey66
03-25-2005, 09:39 PM
Yeah I'm right-handed. Nito, I play AA, small town of 10,000 people.

Sorry for not updating I'll start soon but I've been really busy with provincials, etc.

Hockey66

Yeah pretty rural around here, fun though, great for dirtbiking.

I think I might also add that I pulled a 335 deadlift yesterday. I got 345 all the way up but couldn't lock out my right knee or pull my shoulders completely back. I'll get it next time though!

Nito
03-26-2005, 10:26 AM

Hockey66
03-30-2005, 08:40 PM
Just a story I thought I would share, actually just a shameless brag. Today at the gym I was deadlifting, and I went to pull a 345 which I failed on last week. Some cocky 19 year old ******* comes up to me and was like, "Dude, you're way to young to be lifting that much, you wont even budge the bar you'll just mess up your back. Don't be an idiot." I say ok whatever, crouch down, and smoke the lift with perfect form, holding the lockout for about 5 seconds. Felt great. :strong:

Greeeeaattt session. The pullups maintained for before. Deadlifts I made some huge PRS. My previous best for 315 was two reps, the latter being very slow and not even budging the third. Today I smoked out 4 reps, though the last was verrry slow. For the 355, my legs were locked out and I was upright, but my shoulders were not rolled back so it was not completely locked out. First time trying Yate's rows, took it nice n' light. I'll push myself more next week. SCRs weren't bad.

Nice sessions hockette, your almost at the end of a road to 405 DL.

Hockey66
04-12-2005, 08:10 PM
Actually, the grip was not really a factor to me, it was more my traps not being able to shrug and pull the weight back. I'm not sure if it would've counted in a meet, but it was good enough for a gym lift.

I can't even imagine the pain of pulling a 405 DL, it makes me wanna cry. At the pace you're gaining we'll probably get there at about the same time.

Hey Hockey lol it makes me wanna cry when we're both 15 years old and I'm deadlifting 125 (20 reps) and you're up there pulling 355. But anyway, awesome job with everything! Way to show up that cocky 19 year old too. :)

How long have you been lifting?

Hockey66
04-12-2005, 08:40 PM
Fix: I've been lifting about 7 months now, since September, but I have been playing sports all my life. Throwing around a 220 lbs. dirtbike has strengthened my back a lot too. Just keep working at it and you'll pull 355 before you know it. I've brought my bench press up 70 lbs. since September and my deadlift up 110 lbs. I've also gained ~30lbs. These feats I would never even IMAGINE doing when I first started. Good luck with everything.

You and CC have me just a bit in everything. I last deadlifted two weeks ago because I got sick, then I went out of town and my hotel only had a machine. My last deads day was something like 42 reps, and ending with 300 x 4.

I'm not quite up to your stats, but just gimme a few months. I'm 239. I've got fat to convert!!

Mr Elwood: If your lift is 300x4 then I only have you by 15 lbs, because the 355 was my 1RM. Once all that fat is gone and new muscle is built youre going to be fr33kin hyooge.

A Yate's Row is a form of barbell row that is more upright than a bent over row and underhand, though this can be argued.

I went dirtbiking right after this workout and could barely ride. My arms were so dead it was hard to hold on to the handlebars. Had to run from the cops again for riding on private property, we just went to the other side of the sandhill and waited for them to come talk to us. The cops came and said they were going to call the manager and see if he wants to press charges, I said go ahead, because the manager is my dad :D Oh the fun.

I'm liking the ATF or ATA or ATwhereverIcango squats. Made some good PRs today. On the last set of 225 I actually did get 6 but it wasn't quite as deep cause I felt like I was going to collapse so I didn't count it. It was the slowest most painful rep I have ever done of anything. Everything else was pretty good and consistent.

I did some arnold's today. What's the extra benefit? Does it hit the lats or something?

fixationdarknes
04-17-2005, 08:34 PM
The advantage of those is that it's supposed to work the whole deltoid head (although the work that the posterior delt does is VERY minimal). So, the main benefit is that it uses the lateral head of the delt a lot, along with the target anterior.

Hey Hock where are your workout sessions? You been resting or what?

You can call it resting, I call it slacking. :bang:

I haven't worked out since last tuesday which I was too lazy to record. I hyperextened my knee or did something to it which made me now able to do deads on back day and had to miss leg day completely which completely through me into a big lack of motivation thing. I reinjured the knee at the gym today working arms, just an easy session, nothing of need to be recorded.

I'm going to try squatting but I have two setbacks. First off my knee. I tripped over a set of two bars running horizontal that are about a foot apart vertically. My heel got hooked on the bottom one and the top one was right on my knee and I fell forward. I was laughing along with all my friends until I realized the amount of pain I was in. Second I have the worst sunburn every on my shoulders/traps/back. I never burn, if I do its very slightly. I've been to mexico, jamaica, hawaii, phoenix, florida, and europe and I've never been burnt as bad as this weekend in northwestern Canada. JEBUS!

Once I get my motivation back I'll start posting again, someone help me! :(

Well I've switched to a legs/push/pull routine and I have some questions about it. First off, does this look like overtraining at all or do you think its the right amount of work? I felt pretty dead after. Second, by the time I got to the military presses my chest was dead. This is a HUGE drop in weight from where I was at before, and it doesn't feel like I'm working my shoulders that well, it just feels like my chest is dying. It was even worse for triceps, nowhere near where I was at before. Is this normal or should I take out some chest work until later on? Maybe do Bench -> Millies -> Tricep Dips -> Flies -> DB Millies -> Skulls, in that order instead of the order I'm doing it in now? Should I remove incline altogether if I'm doing millies and bench? Thanks everyone for your help! :)

Good luck with the new routine. I was just on a leg/push/pull routine a little while ago, but I'm soon going to switch to a more purely strength training routine (low-volume full-body workouts 2-3x a week).

For me, personally, that looks like too much work. I'd take out one of the shoulder presses and one of the tricep exercises, but that's just me. I'm not too experienced with the routine, so just try it out and if it feels too much then take out an exercise or two.

Bent Over Lateral Raises (Done VERY slow and controlled, especially on the negative)
15s x 14
20s x 10

WTF? I wanted to try rack pulls today and I couldn't even do as much as I normally deadlift. It was so weird. Last deadlift day I got 365 x 1 and I couldn't do that on rack pulls. Maybe because I do them with very little bend in the knees and almost all back, but I thought thats how they were supposed to be done. Other than that everything was pretty good, curls are a little weaker but thats probably because I'm doing them after back instead of after triceps like I used to.

damn hockey you got some serious strength bro.. and on the push/pull/legs split i used to do 9-12 sets per body part a lil high but i like that kinda volume and although your delts or chest will suffer depending on which one you do first, you just kinda have to check your ego and rest assure it gives amazing progress... well for me at least and a ton of endurance to boot.

good luck bro and great lifts overall

Sounds more like you were treating those rack pulls like SLDL's. You could pull a lot more weight if you squat down as if you were doing a regular dead, hold your body tight, and push back and through with your feet. Also, was slippage an issue? If so, definitely get some chalk. Nice w/o overall, though! :)

Well, a bit of a PR on the squats. MAN did those leg presses ever kill though, at 11 I thought there was no way I was gonna get another one, and I ended up getting 4. The last five reps all felt like death.

Argg. My diet has been SO ****ty lately. My and my friends have been going on 6+ hour dirtbiking trips and don't bring the best food for being on a bulk. Today I was catwalking down the road (on pavement) and I flipped my bike. I have a HUGE scrape down my right side and my hip is SO bruised. To top that off, I dented and scraped my pipe BAD (shown below) and bent my right foot peg. Oh well, maybe a good deadlifting session tomorrow will make me feel better.

Some cool things that have happened recently:

- My friend hatched some chicks on his farm and one of them has 3 legs.. we named it tripod.

- Another friend did a suicide flip off a cliff and didn't jump out far enough and landed on his back on a riverbank.

- We got flooded onto an island and had to carry our bikes over out heads across a 4 foot deep creek.

- We ran into a HUGE grizzly bear, but it got scared and ran away.

Well, I haven't lifted for the last two weeks and my diet has gone to hell. My life has gone to hell. My aunt just got diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma (skin cancer). I tried explaining to my teacher today the situation and that I couldnt think at all and he made me write a test anyway, which I completely blew. It's going to bring my mark down from 98.68% to who knows what, and this year our marks go on our transcript so I was trying to keep it up. I hate everything, I want to kill somebody.

I'd kill to be able to bench as much as you, haha.

I've kinda forgot about my journal, I effed myself up pretty good dirtbiking. I flipped my bike catwalking (again) and when I landed I hyperextended my knee so I cant squat now, and when I landed I fell flat on my ass and actually felt my spine compress on impact. Its not too bad but I'm really scared to deadlift. I also tweaked my wrist on the fall so that kinda sucks.

Not a bad session, the leg press hasn't actually gone down at all. For squats I failed on my 4th rep at 245, which was weird because the first 3 were quite easy. It was like my legs just decided to stop working. Next week I'll get 245 for 5 or 6. Everything else wasn't too bad, and the knee didn't act up at all during the session except a bit during my squat warm-up.

Awesome session today! The 365 was SO easy this time around, no struggle whatsoever. The 375 was still pretty easy, with the only hard part breaking the bar off the ground. I'm almost positive that I have 385 in me, we'll see next week. Pullups were pretty good too considering I usually do them before deadlifts. First time doing dumbell rows in about a month and 1/2 since they were replaced with barbell/yates rows, so PRs all around there. I just threw in the pulldowns for something to do, the first set was wide-grip but that hurt my R/Cs, so I changed it to V-bar for the next two.

Nice deads, yo. You WILL get that 405 pretty soon. About breaking the bar off the ground, that's also the hardest part for me. Once I get it past my knees it's a for sure lockout.

Try doing some rack squats to help your pull off the floor. That has helped me thus far.

I could barely walk after, and I didn't even go heavy. They felt awesome! Everything else was good and consistent, I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to deadlift heavy in 3 days though because I have a feeling its going to take awhile for my legs to recover from the SLDLs.

If I were you I'd switch the flies and the rear delts around, but that's it. Strong showing.

Yeah now that I look at it I think I may do that.

Thanks guys, triceps are probably one of my strongest parts, hence the CGBPs.

My hammies are still hurtin', my lats are killing me, and my traps are sore. Deadlifting today is going to be ROUGH! I'm still planning on pulling a 385 though. :evillaugh

Dood! Awesome! Haha, you planned for 385 Deadlift and you hit 395? So close to breaking 400 man. Keep up the good work.

Wow, I was planning on hitting 385 but I thought it was going to be tough.. it freakin' flew up! 395 was tougher but no too bad, I think 405 is easily within grasp! I've never been so jacked about a lift in my life, today's session was freakin awesome. Front squats I don't like. It the bar kept slipping down and was very uncomfortable. I think I may sub in either Zerchers or Box Squats. For Zerchers do you guys use anything to protect the crook of your arms or just deal with the pain?

I didn't do any hamstring work today because they still kill from the SLDLs. I'm going to need to invest in some ETS for these DOMS. This is the most I've ever felt any exercise work before, and I love it. Hopefully it will assist in a bigger, badder squat.
