Nice push/pull session. dips are hard.
What's today's workout look like Chubrock??????????? *is quite interested*
Mase- Thanks bro. I guess it wasn't too bad.
Doug- Thanks man. I usually do heavy dips, but I was working out in a different gym and they have no dip belt, so I had to use weight I could fit in between my feet. I ended up doing negative dips also, instead of my regular dips.
SW- HAHA, ya know I aim to please.....

Overall a pretty damn good workout. Shoulder session was dead on. I took a nap before I went, and I actually felt a bit sluggish before lifting. I was pleasantly surprised with how I did. Thinking about doing Borris' workout, so I decided to try some new things today. The overhead squats are def. different, and are going to take some getting used to. My reg. squats were ON tonight. I just felt so good sittin under the bar. I was afraid I may have gone shallow on one of the reps, so I pretty much went almost ATC on the last rep, and couldn't quite get it up. My spotter had to help me a bit. The jump squats were just something different. Everything was going good. 115lbs didn't seem heavy at all, but on the 3 rep, the bar slipped off my shoulder and I was able to slow it down a little bit, but it still ended up hittin the floor. Nobody said anything to me lol. I suppose the bit of cussing I was doing to myself made people realize I was already pissed. Overall VERY happy with tonight, if for no other reason than I finally felt comfortable squatting. I mean it felt right for some reason, it's hard for me to explain.

Hey, nice squatin' bro'. Be careful with the jump squats there bud.
Great squatting man. Those jump squds just seem plain crazy. Nice work.
Brute- Thanks bro. If the gym had bumper plates, it wouldn't have been such a big deal, but fact that they were steel plates kinda made the "bang" quite loud lol. The weight didn't seem heavy at all, it was just that it slipped off my traps.
Stack- Thanks man, and welcome to the journal. The jump squats aren't anything special, just something I wanted to try.
You say you're catchin me on squats and you can't keep it on your traps, hehe ;)
Those db shrugs looked killer. Very nice.
SW- HAHAHA forget the fact that they were jump squats huh lol. Thanks bro.
great session chubbs your squat is lookin good.. hey chubbs i had teh same proablem on jump squats so i normally use the smith (yes i said the smith) to do them helps out with slippage..
nice workout, squats look great. COngrats on the weight gain. Is that your typical diet on a bulk? Doesn't look like many cals.
Squat looks great, keep it up big guy.
Mase- Thanks bro. I hadn't even thought about using the Smith Machine. I might have to try that the next time.
cphafner- Thanks man and welcome to the journal. I haven't ever sat down and figured up how many calories I'm taking in. I do know I eat until well past full on most days.
CC- Thanks buddy.
nice leg day there chub...sucks about the weight sliping off. I did something kind of like that today taking the plates off the hs high row machine...i had 2pps plus a ten so i take the plates of one side no problem...forget the other side has a 10 in front of the 45 and i just pull the 45 off lol the 10 pound weight goes clanking onto the floor right onto my cd player!!! doh...lucky i didnt break it
Brian- Damn bro, can't be screwin up the tunes. I guess that's why I wear my mp3 player around my arm.
Nice squatting bro. Jump squats sound fun.
:D I really want to make a smart@ss "vertically challanged" coment, but I wont.Quote:

*Had to stop the workout here. It felt like I ripped something in my shoulder/chest area, right on the side of my chest near my armpit. I hurt pretty damn bad. I'm not going to do any shoulders tomorrow, probably won't squat because of how my arm has to sit, and probably won't do arms on Wed. I aggravated this **** awhile back and never let myself heal. I guess I'm paying for it now.
As you can see I switched the workout once again. I've decided to use a little bit of stuff I know works for me, and things I've been reading as of late. Here's how it goes:
Day 1: Upper focusing on Bench Strength and Back Size
Day 2: Lower focusing on Squat/Leg Endurance and Shoulder Size
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Upper focusing on Dip Strength and Back Size
Day 5: Lower focusing on Squat Strength and Shoulder Size
Day 6 and 7: Rest
As you can see, I'm kind of using a hybrid type split. I'm going to focus on strength in my bench and squat areas, but I'm going to also continue focusing on gaining some size in my back and shoulder area.
Overall, even though I had some intense pain, I enjoyed the workout. Bench is decent, at best. Yates Rows looked quite good.
Quote of the Day: "Pain is only weakness leaving the body."
Dude Andrew give this arm thing about 3 weeks to heal, it'll get worse every time.
3 weeks, hell bro, I'd go abso-****in-lutely insane.
I know dude but it sounds like the tendon attaching the pectoral to...whatever it's attached to.... has tried to snap. You have to let this heal. I know it's gonna kill ya but it's the best alternative.
SW- Yea I suppose you're right. I can't quit working out though, so I guess no shoulder or chest work for awhile.
I think it is your rotator cuff that is hurting you. Try doing some light weight, high rep DB flyes for awhile. Add in some rotator cuff work too. I'll supply some links to exercises if you don't know how. If you can get your hands on some mini bands, they are great for toughening up your rotator cuffs. Do you ever work your rear delts?
Machine- That would be awesome if you could send me some links to the rotator cuff work. I've noticed that if I stretch for a good bit, that it doesn't really hurt me during my workout. Today I didn't stretch as much as I used to, and ended up having to stretch multiple times throughout the sets. I do work my rear delts, though not to the degree of other things.
