Well... I figure it's time to start a journal to track my progress a little better than what I've been doing, and give people a chance to see my progress while I'm at it. Hopefully I'll learn some new things in the process.
Some things about me - I've been lifting since I was 12 but I was a bench jockey up until I found WBB when I was 20. I'm 22 now, 6ft tall, about 18% body fat, and I love lifting weights and being strong. I am currently cutting.
I'll start with yesterday's workout:
Military Press: 45*12, 95*8, 135*6, 155*3, 175*1, 185*4 (new PR)
Flat BB Bench: 135*10, 185*6, 225*4, 275*5, 2*3 at 295
DB Bench on slight incline: 9 reps with 100s, then 6 reps.
Calf Raises (machine): 3*20
Workout was pretty decent I guess, very little volume.
Today's workout started off crappy. I usually warmup with weighted hyperextensions before I move on to deadlift. Well, I did my warmup set (10 reps with no weight) and went to get a drink of water. Some old guy headed toward the hyperextension as I got back and I let him work in, lol. He proceeds to do at least 6 sets of alternating side bends and hyperextensions, so I just said **** it and went on to deadlifts.
Deadlift: 135*8, 225*4, 315*1, 365*1, 405*1, 425*1, 455*1, tried 465 (current max) and missed it twice. I was livid.
Front squats: 95*5, 135*3, 185*1, 205*1, 225*1 (old max), 235*1, 245*1, 250*1 (new PR). I just started doing these recently and I really like them.
Low pin squats: 95*1, 135*1, 225*1 These are hard! I started doing these on Sensei's recommendations, I feel that my form was much better than starting at the top and coming down.
High pin squats: 225*1, 275*1, 295*1, 315*1. I set these well above parallel, at the point that I usually get stuck when doing conventional back squats. They felt really good.
Farmer walks: Grabbed to 100lb dumbells and walked. It's too bad I don't know how far - I would estimate 150 feet or so.
Well, that's it for a couple days. I need to rest. I HATE going to failure, so I think I'll be back at it on Tuesday maybe (get about 80 hours rest).
