Time for me to start a log and figured a snowy Saturday would be a good time to start.
Made it to the gym today through some snow etc. Got in about 8:30 and somehow managed to stay there till about 11:30 ... fueled by a single banana.
Ok so let me preface this by saying my goal is to do the "impossible" and lean out while gaining strength. At the urging of Tone i started 5-3-1 about 4 months ago and have seen really good results so far strengthwise.
I also want to apologize for rambling in this post, the following ones will be much shorter.
Age - 26
Height - 6'8"
Weight - 310AM 320PM (yup... 10 lbs a day... sometimes more)
Inseam - 37ish (jeans)
Wingspan - 81 inches
Equipment - Inzer 10mm Single prong Forever belt.
Ok down to business.
At this point some friggin weirdo starts talking my ear off and i cant get rid of him. I try not to be a jerk or i would have told him to go lick a flagpole or something... so i "cool off" before my 335set and have to start over
365x2 (kind of getting a "feel" for the weight)
395x2 (thought id die on the first rep, but the second came up pretty good)
365x11 (this was my balls to the wall set)
I realize that this is nowhere near 5-3-1 compliant, but after i got my **** all screwed up talking with that dude i just kinda went for whatever i could do and this was it.
the 365x11 was MURDER for the last 2 reps and i loved it. The worst/best pain ever...
Then like a total idiot i decided to do more... i wanted to try something new
245x8 for 3 sets with 30 seconds rest (or less) between sets
225x6 for 4 sets with 30 seconds rest (or less) between sets
Calf raises on leg press machine
495x15x 4 sets
Smith Machine BOBB Row
140+whatever bar weighs on smith... 15reps 3 sets
160 to failure x 3 (i think i went 16-14-12 or something like that but i wasnt counting i was just going for it)
Hammer bar curls
60lbs+bar 12 reps 4 sets
crunch machine for a ton... 160lbs 3 sets of as many as i could do (about 30ish per set i guess)
back extensions unweighted 3sets of 12
ok so thats it... and again sorry for it being kind of all over the place ...
