    cube method tester

    week 1 day 1 (9-3-12)
    deadlifts from floor
    135x10
    225x5
    275x3
    315x3
    385x3
    deadlifts 4"block

    135x8
    185-3x8
    glute ham raises
    bw-4x10
    back raises
    bw-60 reps

    cardio is really bad started getting winded somewhere around ssb olympic stance...it will get better. all in all a good workout...only thing im finding difficult is getting the 1000 carbs a day and the 300 grams of protein...the half gallon chocolate milk a day is awesome though! also im gonna be basing all my percentages off of my best competition lifts in single ply gear
    squat-550
    bench-525
    deadlift-505

    week 1 day 3 (9-7-12)
    speed squat

    squat 70%

    135x5
    225x3
    315x3
    365x3x3

    squat 80% reverse average band

    415x2

    olympic squat

    225x5x5

    leg press

    4x15

    glute ham raises

    3x12 bw

    kettle bell swings

    3x15

    body weight 240 another good training session got winded around the leg press....so at least i went over half way this time. training session took 45 min from start to end..which is a pretty fast pace. my right knee that has been bothering me here recently felt better than it has in weeks but, i also noticed that i might have to squat a little more narrow...maybe a step or two wider than Olympic stance. the squats were done in just my single ply titan briefs. Slayer blared through out the gym which contributed to our fast pace. didn't get bit by one single mosquito the whole time.....which is awesome in its self. till Sunday!

    week 2 day 2 (9-12-12)

    incline bench press
    185x3x3 (Pinky on the ring)


    db incline bench press
    50x20
    60x2x20


    close grip bench press
    225x3x5


    tricep pushdown
    100 reps

    band flys
    3x15


    abs


    today's training session was a little tricky since i really didn't know where my max was....so i just went up till i found a comfortable weight and went with it. also did the same thing with the incline db's. after the close grip bench triceps were shot the push downs finished them right off. feeling real good about this program i really believe its gonna work already can see some muscle gain and strength. body weight 245. faltering just a bit on my eating got around 600 grams of carbs the last two days but i got my protein in....taking care of 140 elevators on redstone arsenal can be challenging at times....oh well ill try to do better. f'n love the chocolate milk always get it in everyday.till Friday.
