    Wednesday
    10.24.12
    Squats


    Squat w/Texas squat bar
    Barx10
    145/2x10
    235x10
    325x10
    Added knee sleeves
    415x5
    Added belt
    505x5
    550x5

    Lunges
    (10 each leg)
    45x20
    75x20
    95x20
    115x20

    Leg extensions
    35x20
    50/3x15

    Leg curls
    35x15
    50/3x10

    Done...Squats felt pretty good today, considering how I ate like s**t and slept way too long, lol. I found a pretty good stance which doesn't cause me much pain, but it will probably throw my numbers off. I also carried the bar higher then normal and it felt good on my shoulder, so that's a keeper. I'll do my upper accessory work on Friday, then i'll deload next week and then start my 16 week training cycle for the RUM.

    I hope it's fun, I'm definitely looking forward to the 16 week cycle I got from Tone. The tweaks might sacrifice some numbers on the platform, but hopefully I'll be pain free, so it'll be worth it.

    It's ok...RUM=Raw Unity Meet

    It's an annual meet that is open to all federations with a qualifying total. It usually brings out some big raw lifters.

    Tuesday
    10.30.12
    BP-Deload


    Floor presses
    Barx40
    135x20
    185x20
    225x15
    275/3x10

    Dips
    BW/5x12

    Pulldowns
    70x15
    120/3x10

    Pushdowns
    70x20
    90/2x20

    Done...Not much to say. My only complaint is my right arm doesn't seem to be firing on all cylinders. It feels like its working harder then my left and it gives out faster. I also noticed it while doing pulldowns. I'm going to talk to my friend Justin from New Dimensions and see what he says. Also, I had plans on putting weight on but for some reason, i'm having a hard time putting on the pounds. I've been sitting around 245-248 for awhile now. Oh well, time to stop crying and keep moving on.

    I skipped deadlifts yesterday. I'll do some SLDL's after squats on Thursday. Next week starts my training cycle!!!

    Adding weight can be as challenging as losing weight. But overall, I prefer adding it.

    I hope it's nothing serious. Hopefully it's because I have weak shoulders and I just need to make them stronger, lol.

    Update:

    I decided to just take the rest of the week off from training. I was off all week from work, so why not the gym.?

    I still plan on doing the RUM, which is about 17 weeks out from tomorrow. I also decided to work on some volume for my bench and squat. So i'll be running an 8 week program that I have. I'm hoping this will give my bench and squat the boost that it needs.

    As far as my deadlift, I still plan on starting the 16 week cycle I got from Tone. I'm going to change one thing with it, but that's it. I'll start that on Monday.
