Jujitsu was canceled thanks to holiday. I'm going to the gym and do some touch -up stuff.
practice kipping pull up
Ok, well its hard to practice a kipping pull-up when I can't do a pull-up so scratch that.
It's been two weeks since I posted the last post. Since then I have lost 9 lbs. My deadlift is back up to 405 lbs.
Bench is up to 225x10
squat is 225x 3 (blah!)
military press 185x3
0 dips (this is confusing. I used to be amazing at dips even at my MORBIDLY OBESE WEIGHT.)
My routine this month has been...
1 day of maxing out complex lifts.
Then one day of crazy long supersets with heavy free weights and very minimal rests
Then one touch up day with lighter squats, power moves like clean, jerk, box jumps.
I've also been doing eliptical 3 times a week and jogging a mile once a week.
So far I'm making big newbie gains and am losing quick weight.
My diet has been unbelievable recently. Not even cheating bad on my 1 cheat day per week. no sugar. low calorie. Solid amount of protein. very low starch and hardly any high glycemic carbs.

So I injured my shoulder in jujitsu. It's been a week. I've still hit the gym. Great news. I'm now 299 lbs. Nice landmark weight to hit.
Yesterday I did a nice workout for chest and back. I steered clear of the pullups and military press due to my shoulder...
I did very heavy freeweights with very very minimal rest.
machine bench press
then i touched up
2 sets biceps
2 sets triceps
2 sets shrugs
2 sets calves
for about 15 min extra.
Ok shoulder is healed!!!
Today, TIED Bench PR of 300 lbs!!!
no bounce, all the way down. all the way up, no help. VERY excited!
Personal best was 430. Today I did 445!!!
chin-up singles for fun in between sets
my dips are up to 8 now from 0
I weighed in at under 300, yay
shoulder pressed 100 lb dumbells which is a tie for p.r.
other stuff too, but those were the things that made me proud
Today, I'm pretty sore from jujitsu and lifting alot last week. I'm going to take it easy.
maybe a few dumbell bench presses
then ride the bike and eliptical
stationary bike, which my body hates... I'm kinda getting used to it already though.
I have very weak unflexable short hamstrings. It's annoying. Practice makes perfect
did all push exercises today then ran/jogged for 3 miles in intervals
my eating is good too, very good
Tried 450 lb deadlift..... FAIL!
p.r. is still 445 from a few weeks ago.
Benched up to 275x3
also did 225 times 13 1/2 which is almost a p.r. (14 is p.r.)
4 chinups x a few sets
6 dips x a few sets
bodyweight squats for fun
light barbell rows for fun
rowing machine.. went really fast for 5 minutes
jumped rope for a few minutes
saw my old karate sensei at the gym getting personal trained by some hot broad
jogged 7.25 miles
Jogged 9.25 miles.
also, did the 300 workout in 44 minutes.. hopefully next time will be under 40
back after a year. 265 lbs. Just got back from doing vertical push/pull at gym. Started heavy then went with high reps. Ended with 200 lbs farmers walk. Idon't want to get too much into detail yet. It's my first post in over year.
my focus is healthy fat loss while maintaining muscle.
arms measured in at 18.25 inches today.
New awesome workout today. Gym for 2 hours. Boxing class for an hour and 15 minutes. back to the gym because my boxing ran through my muay thai and I missed it.
new stats, bench 320
deadlift 455 maybe 465 i forget
squats suck for me. im not posting that
furthest ran 8 miles (recently. 11 most)
