The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    245x6 no problems, not even a threat of cramping!
    265x1 nice slow negative, ass to grass

    Trap bar deadlifts
    Never done these before but they fit in perfectly. Hit everything squats did, but squats emphasize the quads and glutes and these emphasize the hammies, I think this'll work out just fine! I'm assuming the bar is 45lbs...

    Today:


    This is a tough routine to schedule if you miss a day because there is so much overlap between muscle groups. I've been trying to get back on schedule but have a difficult time because both upper body workouts need rest between them (shoulders) and the back and leg workout need rest between them(back). Starting this week with chest/arms, tuesday legs, and thursday back/shoulders like it should be, and then I gotta stick with it.


    2 sets of face pulls to warm up the rotators

    HS iso-lat bench press
    90(45lbs per side) x 10
    140x6

    160x8 finally, even 1 more rep was a struggle, not very happy with progress on this
    180x0.5 ug dunno why I tried
    140x8

    HS iso-lat decline press
    The incline presses just work my shoulders, so I ditched em for these
    140x8
    140x7

    Cable crossovers
    80x10
    120x8 drop to
    80x6 drop to
    50x10


    EZ bar curls
    50x10
    70x6

    110x6 hit it solid
    80x6 drop to
    50x6


    Skullcrushers
    50x12

    90x6
    70x8

    Pushdowns
    110x6
    140x4 drop to
    90x7

    1912 press
    Heavy weight x 3 drop to
    heavy weight x 4 drop to
    light weight x 15

    I'm hearing you on the workout agenda, but one thing is for certain, nothing wrong with making things up as you go along in case you missed one or two sessions. Looking fine though man.

    Well midterms killed me over the last month, and training obviously suffered. In that time I've done sandbag workouts and worked with the light weights I have at home and some other stuff. Finally got a pullup bar, so I'll record those workouts at least. Last night:

    Pullups alternated with pushups
    BWx2/5
    BWx1/5
    BWx1/5
    BWx2/5
    BWx2/5
    BWx2/4
    BWx3/4
    BWx1/5
    BWx2/5
    BWx1 + loooong negative

    Yikes, back to the basics and this workout kicked my ass. Hopefully I'll get to some sprints and stuff tonight.
