The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Not a problem, take care of business in the classroom first.
    The guys I have been training with are more concerned about being seen by the onlookers while lifting and flexing at the chain gyms as opposed to getting stronger in the basement hell hole, lol. Not a big issue, just different goals.

    Too bad about that training partner, there are some truly unreliable people out there as you have found.

    Side note: My partner decided to come back for a cameo appearance then proceeds to leave early, gotta love part timers.

    Sunday 12/12/10
    raw bench w/ 40 lb chains
    25 lb db under lower back
    barx20
    135x10
    135x5
    185x3
    added chains
    185x3
    205x2
    225x1
    245x1
    255x1
    275x1
    285x1 barely touched by spotter around 1-2 brd range

    Mini deload this week with no accessory work. Beginning a 10 week shirt program in a couple weeks so a little extra rest will be a good thing. Elbows aching today probably tied in with the crappy weather of late.

    Greasing the groove! I might try sleeping in the shirt, if it will make my bench move on the platform.

    Thanks. Slight bodyweight increase always seems to facilitate pressing PR's within a few weeks.

    Thursday 12/16/10 bwt. 238
    box squat+ blue bands (roughly 70 at top) / suit no straps
    135x10x2
    225x5
    275x2
    added suit+bands
    300 8x3 1 min. rest between sets
    removed bands
    365x2
    405x2
    No accessory again tonight, still mini deload. Will put them back in starting Sunday. Box squat felt weak as hell tonight, probably because I haven't done it in forever. I never really cared for the feel of the box squat and carryover for raw and single ply because you don't sit back as much like in double ply. But because i expect to work in to double ply gear next year which does require sitting back more I will start running with it more. I will carry on for about 4-5 weeks then go to my next phase and remove the box. Plus it will definately hit my lower back and hamstrings in a new way.

    sunday 12/19/10
    db flat bench
    60x15x2
    70x12
    80x12
    100x8
    110x6
    110x5

    db flyes 35x12x3

    band pushups
    1x15
    1x12

    3brd cg+ green bands (roughly 100 at top)
    155x5
    135x8
    135x8
    135x7

    flat tates
    50x10x3

    upright rows
    95x10x3

    bent over flyes
    30x12x2
    25x15

    Decided to mix it up and use my db flat press sorta as my max effort exercise. Start my shirt work next week so taking the barbell out of my hand for one max effort session prior might be a good idea. Smoked when done, good work.
