    This is quite possibly the coolest journal ever.

    I hear you on the hurt wrist.... unlike me, though, you're smart enough to take it easy.

    I think people's silence may have to do with the fact that most entries feel so mundane next to the stuff you've got written. lol.

    Well, maybe it's because I'm old, but I think it's hard to read the tiny tiny type.


    But it is cool.

    WARM UP: 10min cardio
    WARM UP: *1 Leg Ext.


    WARM UP: *2 Leg Press
    Leg Press: (4 plates +10 on each side = 6, 5)

    Hack Squat: (90 on each side x 12, ) (100 on each side x 6)

    WARM UP: *1 Lying Leg curls
    Lying one legged curls: (100 x 7) (100 x 6)

    Standing Leg Curls: (60 x 6)

    WARM UP: *1 Sitting Calve Raises
    Sitting Calve Raises: (180 x 7, 6)


    T echnique - Not too bad.
    R est - About 2 min in between each set.
    I ntensity - 95% I still need to eat more carbs before leg day!
    P rogression - No progression since I took last week off.
    L ength - 45min
    E nergy - 85%, I had more energy then on Monday’s workout.
    P erformance - 95%, I was pleased with it.

    NOTES - I plan on doing legs in the higher rep range now, probably like 6-10 reps, before I was doing like 3-6 reps and it wasn’t really doing much for me.

    Also, I skipped squats today since my wrist still feels funny, I didn’t want to put any pressure on it.

    On the hack squats I had 2 plates on each side and I was aiming at 9 reps…when this personal trainer and this lady came over (to use the machine) and I was like thinking to myself “damn, man, I just got on this machine” so I busted out 3 EXTRA reps, lol. I didn’t know I had it in me.

    Then I asked them if they wanted to work in and they said no so I took turned around back to the machine and started stretching (for two minutes) and when I looked back over my shoulder they were gone!

    Suckers!

    Man, I felt really out of breath today, though, in between sets I could hardly catch my breath - but that’s typical on leg day.

    Actually I was out of energy by the end of the workout and after drinking my post workout drink I thought I was going to throw up all over.

    But don’t worry I didn’t.

    I was so tired afterwards I came home and just laid on my back on the floor for like 10 min before taking a shower.

    [COLOR=blue]Bonjour!

    So…you decided to come back and read my journal again?

    “You’re like a fungus, TripleP, you grow on people.” Oh, is that what you think? Cause if that’s what you think then you are right!

    I can’t believe that WBB was down earlier though, doesn’t Hulk know that I need to update my journal three times a week? If it’s going to be down at least make it happen on Tuesday or Thursday! Lol.

    Okay let me quickly answer my fan mail.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Belial Hey! Thanks for also writing in my journal! How is wrist doing? And also how did you hurt it?? And what are you doing to help it heal?

    Belial, are you wondering why your name isn’t in red like all the other ones?

    The answer is that vBulletin Version 2.2.6 is funked up! Yeah that’s right. It’s messed up!
    No matter whose name I reply to first in red - it won’t show up in red. So I don’t know why it does that, all the other names are in red but the first one isn’t.

    HULK Hey, mate, did you hear that? What’s going on, is it a glitch in the matrix? Lol.

    Borris Hi, what's up? Thanks for writing in my journal. I hurt my wrist doing CGBP…I learned my lesson on how to use proper form on those! I did that like a month ago and my wrist got better but then last week I did something very very stupid.

    I did regular barbell curls with my WRIST WEIGHTS on!! I know, I know….and so what happened was I didn’t keep my right wrist straight…and so again when I curled the weight it kind of when back a little.

    I talked to you last night and you mentioned that you hurt your wrist, too. That sucks, man. You also said how it never really got better, I don’t want that to happen to me! I do hope it gets better soon.

    Carolinagirl ok, important question here. WBB Members - Do you have your text font size set on MEDIUM OR LARGE? I need to know so I can make my journal a better viewing experience!

    Rookiebldr Hi! Thanks for the reply! I really do hope that the wrist feels much better real soon, its pissing me off, man!

    Budiak I totally dig what you’re saying. If I was you and you were me and I read this journal I would be like “WTF man - this fool is crazy look at all the pretty colors!” lol. Or something like that.

    Am I right?

    I’m afraid that’s all for now, but fear not my dear readers! I’ll be back faster than Mr. Chris Mason can type in “bull****” after reading a newbie’s post claiming outrageous stats with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cheerio!

    Um, I don't know whether it's set to medium or large. Everybody else's journal just looks...well, regular size. Yours looks equivalent to when other people use size 1 in their text. Like this: example of size one text .

    It is really cool though - it's just hard to read. But like I said, I have about 10 years on most people in here, so it may just be old age.

    How long does it take you to do this, anyhow?

    I was looking at that, and somewhere it appears that a close delimiter is out of place or missing. Either that or vB is thinking that one of the other delimiters is for something else.

    Anyway, just wanted to add that this is one crazy journal. Keep it up because this is definitely some good reading!

    NOTES - I was doing BB curls when my right wrist started acting funny so I decided to abort that exercise. It felt almost fine on all of the other exercises but not this one.

    My pull-ups are pathetic! Do you guys have any tips on how I can perform more pull ups?
    I just do two sets of pull-ups, kind of like pulldowns. Should I do it another way?

    Should I do like 20 pull-ups? And not count how many sets I do?

    I also skipped the hammer curls. Have any of you guys had a wrist injury before? Any tips on how I can make it heal faster?

    NOTES - I’m slowly starting to eat more carbs. I try to make breakfast the biggest meal of the day. Right now it’s at about 700 calories, I’m going to bump it up to 900. Any tips on what I should add to my breakfast?

    I think I might be eating too much dextrose after working out. I ate 2.5 scoops, I use the same scoop that came with the 10lb of protein from Optimum Nutrition. If I eat 2 scoops of dextrose it doesn’t bother me but 2.5 is just too much, so I’m going to cut back on that.

    Hey, what do you think I should eat to bump my carbs up? I eat the usual, brown rice, oatmeal, milk. What else? I know that these are the best carbs to eat, but I can only eat so much (for example I can’t eat like 4 servings of rice in one meal, can’t even eat 3 without forcing it down).

    I know - sweet potatoes right?

    I’m too lazy for that, man, I want something simple! So, any tips?

    Bananas?

    I guess I could eat 2 of those, get an easy 60g carbs, what do you guys think?
    I don’t seem to have trouble getting enough protein, it’s the carbs that I’m having trouble with!

    Hola!

    I started my day today by waking up at around 8 o’clock, I was feeling a little lazy (as usual) because I have been woken up several times during my beauty sleep because there was this huge thunderstorm here last night and I thought that the Iraqis were bombing the **** out of us.

    I have started going to the gym later now, about 1 or 2 o’clock. The main reason for this is because I now eat a real breakfast (as opposed to just eating a piece of fruit and a quick protein shake then going to work out).

    I was supposed to go grocery shopping today but somebody forgot to leave me their credit card before going to work, so I’m going to go later. I’ll be getting the usual.

    Eggs
    Oatmeal
    Milk
    Eggs
    Cottage Cheese
    Eggs
    Yogurt
    Eggs


    Notice how I mentioned “eggs” a few times? That’s because I buy a lot of eggs at the same time, I probably get like 12 cartons at a time, cause I eat a dozen eggs a day and don’t feel like going to Walmart every week.

    I hate it how people look at you funny when all you have in your grocery cart is 12 cartons of eggs and 6 buckets of cottage cheese.

    They have that “WTF” look on their faces.

    But that’s ok because I also have that “WTF” look on my face when I see their shopping cart filled with $100 worth of coke, chips, chocolate, snacks, etc.

    Damn fudge packers.

    I don’t eat tuna anymore, but boy did I used to! I would eat 3 cans a day, and I would go to this store that was like 30min away just because they had the cheapest prices there.

    People with foodstamps shopped there, that’s how ghetto this place was. Furthermore, it was so ghetto that this store didn’t even have shelves, they just had aisles made up of boxes filled with products. And they only had two working registers.

    I used to buy a whole box of cans of tuna, it was like 50 cans or something crazy like that, came to like 25 cents a can. Every time I was by the register there would be a really old guy or an old black guy and they would say the following statements to me:

    “So, you’re gonna eat all that?”

    “Which shelter are you from?”

    I don’t remember the other comments but they all had to do with some shelter.

    Carolinagirl I use size 1 for my journal writings, because it looks much nicer then regular size writing. If it’s hard for you to read my journal I suggest you do what I do when I wake up in the morning and feel too lazy to put on my contacts/glasses and decide to look at porn, I just pull the screen up really close to my face.

    Each journal entry takes me as long as it takes me to write it up. Usually like 10-15min, I have each of my 3 workouts saved on disk, so all I do on that particular day is go into Microsoft Works and edit on my last workout. Also, the things that I will be editing are in blue, everything else is in standard black, so it‘s really easy to find the areas that I will be editing,. The damn journal layout is five pages long.


    HomeYeild Like I said, this vB is messed up. I can’t wait to the day when this writing posts will be obsolete and instead people will just be able to talk posts, it would be like talking on the phone, no more reading, just listening and talking. If you think this journal is crazy you haven’t seen nothing yet! Oh, and I’ll defiantly keep it up all right.

    I‘m afraid that‘s all the time I have for now, chaps! But don‘t despair! I’ll be back faster than the superhero wannabe Mystic Eric can sneak you a nauseating msn hug! Cheerio!

    TripleP, it's cool man, I can just tell you don't like me.

    I got a sprain, a pretty mild one... the thing that hurts is the stress fracture on one of my metacarpals. Very subtle, almost impossible to see on an x-ray, but I told the doc exactly where to look. Squatting does give me some discomfort, but I actually use an inzer wrist wrap to keep things tight. Prevents and wrist motion, all but eliminates pain. Might be worth giving a shot.

    i hadnt thought of a wrist wrap (stuffed wrist up a month ago- ligaments or some crap) it clicks still whenever i write and hurts a bit with some movements in the gym but that is a bloody good idea

    I know nobody cares about this, but my wrist is back to normal now, doesn’t hurt at all! So I was able to concentrate on my lifting rather than on my wrist giving out in the middle of a set. Over the weekend I drove to the local Walmart and I bought myself this FUTURO wrap around Wrist Support brace, and it sure worked!

    Although my wrist is feeling much better, I’m still a little worried how it’s going to hold up this Friday when I do BB curls…we shall see.

    I stopped doing flat BB bench press and have switched to incline because I feel that the incline is less stressful on the shoulders. I used to do incline then I switched to flat…and now that I have switched back to incline I am using more weight…even though I was using less weight (then I normally would on flat) because of my wrist recovering.

    That doesn’t make very much sense, or does it?

    I felt kind of disappointed because I didn’t lift the usual weight that I do, for example I did DB shoulder press with 55s, and before the wrist injury I was doing 66.5s (wrist weights)…but in a couple of weeks I will be outlifting that! So it will all work out.

    Total number of carbs: ~400g


    Swiftly Scarfed Supplements©:
    Protein powder - 4 scoops
    Flaxseed oil - 3 tbsp

    glutamine - 15g
    creatine - 5g
    Vitamin C - (4) 500mg

    NOTES - Holy macro - 9 meals!

    9 MEALS!!

    Although if you notice four of them are protein shakes…and two others ones include protein powder in them…so I only had three REAL meals, lol.

    I remember before how I was eating like seven real meals (real food), that was totally insane, I’d say. Eating this way (the way I’m doing right now) is so much easier and doesn’t take as much time.

    I need to buy some ketchup, though, to mix with the chicken meals.

    Silence.

    Gradually the sound of distant typing becomes audible.

    A LOW ANGLE shot behind a chair with a man sitting on it. Learning to Fly by Pink Floyd can be faintly heard playing off somewhere in the background.

    CLOSE ON keyboard, the man’s fingers insanely typing away.

    The man glances down at the keyboard, pauses for a moment and continues typing calmly now.

    CAMERA MOVES UP now to the computer screen…

    WHY YOU MUST LEAVE ME IN DESPAIR?

    I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED, PLEASE!


    Please, ladies and gentlemen - enough with the “this journal is awesome, this journal is so cool, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.”

    I know all of this, man!

    What I don’t know is the answers which I seek by asking my questions which nobody reads.

    Well, that’s my rant.

    Look who it is.

    If it isn’t my old arch nemesis, Mr. McBain. Yes, you would like to inquiry about the cd burner, eh? Don‘t you worry about it, it’s all been taken care of. I have since then gotten a new computer and took my old one out back and smashed it to smithereens.

    I got a sprain, a pretty mild one... the thing that hurts is the stress fracture on one of my metacarpals. Very subtle, almost impossible to see on an x-ray, but I told the doc exactly where to look. Squatting does give me some discomfort, but I actually use an inzer wrist wrap to keep things tight. Prevents and wrist motion, all but eliminates pain. Might be worth giving a shot.


    Belial I can’t believe this! A WBB Member actually ANSWERED one of my questions! You see that, gang? It’s not so hard, is it?

    Yes, I have gotten a wrap for my wrist, too, and it actually helped out a lot! I don’t think my wrist has a fracture in it, though. How exactly did you sprain yours?

    McBain McBain, you again! Damn straight it’s a bloody good idea!

    Also, stop with the smilies, will you? All the tags in my journal are maxed out, so when I quote you I have to go back and delete the silly smilies. You silly goose.


    Hey, I just noticed that my journal is a total chick magnet.

    Ritzol, CG, Savannah and now McBain all have posted in here!

    All that this journal is missing is a Jacuzzi and a Phil Colins CD!

    Well, gang I have to go study for my chemistry test now…perhaps when I come back my questions will be answered…boy wouldn’t that be nice!




    That slams the lid on yet another successful journal entry, mates, but not to worry! I’ll be stuffing my belly with chicken and rice and before I can put my fork down and take a sip from my trusty water bottle, I’ll be back with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cherrio!

    My pull-ups are pathetic! Do you guys have any tips on how I can perform more pull ups?
    I just do two sets of pull-ups, kind of like pulldowns. Should I do it another way?

    Should I do like 20 pull-ups? And not count how many sets I do?
    Well, I have this same problem. I've been doing as many as I can in my weakest position first (wide grip, overhand, with as little assist on the machine thingy as I can do), for a set or two, then coming back to pullups later in the workout when my lats have recovered somewhat and shifting over to mechanically stronger positions (ie, close parallel grip and/or underhand, with a little more assist) and getting as many as I can. Also, negatives are good - get up there however you can and go down REALLY slow. (I don't do enough of these.) Take this with a grain of salt, because I can do maybe 2 unassisted.


    About the carbs: you kind of answered your own question. Sweet potatoes. Prebake them, 6 at a time or so, and they are actually really convenient. Smush in some cottage cheese or cinnamon or even natty p-bo. The bananas = good in moderation; same with apples or other fruit. Fructose doesn't have much effect on insulin levels. (It does preferentially refill liver glycogen over muscular glycogen, though, so it wouldn't be great PWO.) Beans are also quite high in carbs (and fiber) and tasty to boot, but if you're too freaking lazy to bake a sweet potato I doubt you're going to want to do all the soaking and rinsing and cooking and seasoning. You can buy them canned and they're pretty good but MUCH more expensive.


    THERE. You happy now? Somebody answered some of your questions.

    I would love to answer your questions, but all of the colors, fonts and sizes make your posts virtually impossible to read.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    NOTES - I had to go to the dentist in the morning, and then I had class, so I went to the gym kind of late…at 8pm! Man, I hate going to the gym so late because that’s when all of the FREAKS come out.

    They come out after work.

    Right now my main focus on leg day isn’t to increase the weight…it’s to increase the reps.

    I’m pretty happy with all of my lifts, except for squats. I really like squats but the weight I’m using is just pathetic. Squats just feel so awkward to me. It’s not my fault I’m so gumpy when it comes to them.

    Bonjour!

    I won a Windows 95 CD on ebay like 3 weeks ago, and finally it came today. There was a little piece of paper taped onto the package that read “Thank you! Please leave positive feedback for me as I will have for you! Eddie“

    Yeah, right.

    No way am I going to be leaving any feedback at all for Eddie - his stupid CD took like 3 WEEKS to come in!

    Some of you may be wondering why exactly did I buy a Windows 95 CD?

    I‘ll tell you why.

    I was playing around on my laptop…and accidentally deleted some very important system files and so now my laptop won’t even start up. And the bigger problem is that now I can’t use my digital camera, because I don’t have the CD for that, the software is on the laptop.

    But that’s all going to change now that my laptop will be working again.

    You can look forward to me posting some incredible pics of stuff. What kind of stuff? Just whatever, you know. Stuff.

    I do need to buy some batteries. Correction - I need to buy LOTS of batteries.

    My digital camera goes through batteries like a fat chick goes through beer on Free Drink Fridays.

    You certainly have a good point there, but I also think that you could have said that in a nicer way.

    Now go stand in the corner and next time you want so say something raise your hand first, Mr. “Equal Opportunity Offender”.

    carolinagirl Hey! Thank you for answering my questions!

    The negative pull ups are a great idea! I’m going to try them out tomorrow. How many should I do though? I do two sets of pull-ups, so should I just do them (the negatives) on my last set, or both sets?

    I already eat apples, and I’m going to buy some bananas next time I go grocery shopping. And yes I am happy that someone answered my questions. But now I have even more questions! What kind of beans do you suggest? I’m also going to try the sweet potatoes.

    Raniali Um, just what kind of religion do you believe in? I do feel flattered that you chose to post in my journal, though. Why am I writing this since you don’t even read journals? I don’t know.




    I’m afraid that’s all for now, but fear not my dear readers! I’ll be back faster than Mr. Chris Mason can type in “bull****” after reading a newbie’s post claiming outrageous stats with another installment of Based on a True Story! Cheerio!

    Umm..... That WAS a nice way of Budiak saying you should DO SQUATS......... and no, not warmup squats of 90 lbs.


    Seriously...











    90 lbs?..... You squatting 90 lbs.... is like me squatting without weight... prolly not gonna make a lot of difference.

    Besides your legs are about 5x the size of mine, I think if I can handle 225 you can certainly handle more than 90.




    Read Paul Stagg's sig... it is aboslutely, unequivocally, without a doubt..... brilliant.


    I do agree.... your journal is nice... but it is hard to read.. it's like the beauty pageant for journals or something. I think you should like throw the fancy shmancy stuff out the window.. and have a normal, easy to navigate journal like the rest of the wbb population.

    It started as a max, but I think I did 4-6 reps with it.... I can't remember, it was awhile ago. I'm thinking it was 4 though.
