Still sore from my gpp work on Saturday I worked 12 hours and I was a little cranky by the time I made it in the gym.
worked up to 405 with purple and orange bands. I did my math wrong on these. I was really dissapointed that I was barely hitting three. However it was around 530 or so. Still not exactly where I want to be but was able to get a couple of sets of two good looking reps and a shitty third.
Rear delt work with OLY rings and Dips just went back and fourth for 3 sets.
Standing OHP with kettle bells now this is tough shit man. I think I had the 56lbs not sure maybe 66 it really doesnt matter it was heavy finished up with 4 sets of 8 reps
Bent over rows 145lbs 3 sets of 8
Tired as shit
Moved on to eating as much sushi as I could. I know I am doing carb nite but I screwed it up a little.
Didnt really fee like doing anything other than sitting in the hot tub. But I got out there and hit some shit.
Front and side dumbell raises
OHP with barbell
Seated shoulder press
Incline rear delt movement along with incline front raises
I came up with this great idea on the way to the gym and after trying it I wish I would have ran my truck off a bridge before I got there.
Bench eccentric decline with a 2 second pause on chest 225lbs with 35lbs kettlebells hanging from blue bands.
Stupid this shit hurt so much I cant wait to do them again as long as I am just a spotter.
Close grip lock out for reps
So recently I came up with the saying SHRUG LIFE now I know I am not the first person to say or use that term. However, I choose to make shirts that say shrug life on them. And people have really liked them and I have had a great turn out with the shirts.
So recently I had Marissa Inda send me some pics of her in the SL shirt. I have been posting her pic along with other people that have bought them on a varitey of websites.
So I post a thread on BB.com now I have had an acct with them for about 5 years or so. Every now an then I get angry with a troll and deactivate my acct for a month or a couple of years. HAHA. Now recently I reactivated my acct and I posted a thread advertsing the SL shirts. First idiot post a disrespectful comment to Marissa. Now if you dont know me that well one thing you will find out really fast is I am not one that will stand for disrespectful comments to woman. I hate the fact that people say things to woman and everytime I see it I make a comment back to the idiot that says it. So this idiot Brandon Graham who of course was hidding behind a moniker replies I will give you 15 bucks how many mins do I get with her and when I am done I will give you the shirt back.
Now I would usally really fire back here. But I held my self back and simply replied please have some respect. Now this idiot goes on to tell me a bunch of crap. Finally another member steps in posts a link to youtube stating hey this is Adrian Larsen maybe have a little respect he is a great bencher. This clown replies back he should bench more than me he is 30 lbs heavier and 4 inches shorter. And than goes on to make fun of the fact I do not squat or deadlift.
Well Brandon didnt know what he was getting into. I found him on FB and we had a great talk today. Lets just say it ended with a SORRY. Your damn right you should be sorry and you should be ashamed of yourself. Someday Brandon you wont be able to hide behind your keyboard and you might catch an ass whoopin when you pipe off with some smart ass comment. Hopefully he learned his lesson.
I worked up to 625 for a sloppy double with the ram. NOw I am ok with this. I didnt think I was going to get that heavy but I am glad I did. Weight felt great.
Moved on to some tricep movements and finished with some shoulders.
Great day of benching. Much better than the last few.
I have been expermienting a little with how many carbs to consume on my carb night the day before I train heavy and it seemed what I did this week was right on.
Dynamic effort benching
Eccentirc and with a isometric pause.
Worked up to 275lbs and completed 6 sets. I was pretty taxed after this.
Finished up with three tricep movements and a rear delt movement.
Everything felt good. Allthough I hate training at commercial gyms. I was able to get the job done.
Nice work man. Solid benching this week. I couldn't imagine training in a commercial gym ever. I just walk out to my garage and go. It might be below 0 right now not counting wind chill, but I can deal with the cold a lot better than I can deal with assholes... Lol
Man what a full day worked a little overtime and hit the gym to squat. Now if you dont know why I am squatting here is why. I am trying to prove a point that things are hard and you never give up or say your not good enough.
Used safety bar worked up to roughly 125lbs ish for 8 sets of 8
Wide grip seated rows.
Still using the ram this is the last week. Wanted to go heavy. Worked up to 605 for 2 655 for 1 and 675 for 1. Then dropped down to 500 for 10
Lockout 625lbs for 3 sets of 8
Tricep pushdowns with bands
Shrugs 33 reps at 315lbs Only did this cuz some people were talking shit. So I proved em wrong. Yea you know who you are.
Rep out 100lbs dumbells for presses 37 reps
Impressive benching with the ram Adrian. Look forward to seeing 600@220 go up.
Also, very inspirational work with the squatting. Excellent stuff bro.
Max Bench but really just a bullshit workout
I went into the gym not in a good mood and I was going out of town the next day I had a ton of stuff to do.
I still managed to run in there I switched up my training a little this week and hit max reps with 315 I think I shot around 30 for 3 or four sets.
Front and side DB raises
Rear pec dec to hit rear delts.
Ran out of time so called it a day there
Now I am about to go out of town and I know I am going to eat way to much so this is in hopes not to screw with my back loading to much
I hit up Fitness 101 in Lincoln City this is a great gym if you happen to swing down there check it out.
Bent over rows
While I was out of town a guy approached me and asked how much you bench man. Now I always lie. Because you get accused of using steriods they dont believe you what ever. So I just keep it reasonable. Usally I say 350lbs. So this 165lbs man asked how much you bench. I say 350lbs. And he replies wow man yea I just hit 335lbs. HAHAHA yea right man. But instead I say great job.
He asked me dude what do you eat and do you train every day. He asked like I found some secret. I responded I eat everything I can get my hands on and I train about 3 days a week. Now I am getting a funny look from this guy. So I stopped the conversaton by breaking it down very easy for him.
There is no secret food, routine or program. The secret is being consistant with hard work. There is no formula with that except I want to get stronger and have goals in mind that drive my training.
^^this made me laugh. Funny
Bullshit squat and pull day. I hate this because I cannot do either well but I am holding up my end of the bargain.
I used a stupid machine to work on depth. High reps. Worked 5 sets of 25 to 30. Afterwards my quads were shaking.
Moved to just bar in squat rack and just attempting to get to depth. I failed but I am getting closer.
Rack pulls about 6 inches from ground. Not even going to discuss weight. But I did prob 12 sets of 4 to 8 reps and felt good. Low back got really tight at the end but all in all good easy day.
I am sitting here trying to stucture my training session for tonight and it hits me. How many training sessions have you let slip by. How many times did you not give it your all. Every session you let slip away you cannot have it back. Its GONE. Next thing you will know you could be looking back at a what if.
Dont let there be what if's Dont let time and sessions slip away. Reach for your goals and fight the living shit out of it until you reach them. And after you reach them get new goals and start over.
