    Preacher Curls - yeah, about time you trained those bis.


    I also agree with keeping the fat lower. Orange chicken? Nothing like using almost all your daily alotment in one sitting.

    ROFL, oh man - I usually wait until I'm on the freeway to do that. What an idiot! -teufy doing what he does best.

    You aren't strong enough or pretty enough to train in the evenings with us...better stick to noon workouts with the rest of the geriatrics. - pup

    We all make mistakes. It's not as big of a deal as you think it is, but I'd still try to keep the mindset that it is.

    As far as the power workout goes, I learned that it is important to do the exhausting exercises last, like squats/deadlifts. I would start with your strongest/easiest motions, alternate opposing bodyparts, and end with the exhausting ****. Also, pick the motion you'd like to gain strength on and put it first, because I'm usually toast after half of this workout.

    For example:
    bench - easy
    row - easy
    inc bench - a little more exhausting (getting db in place)
    lat pulldown - easy
    squats - taxing
    curls -easy
    jm press - easy
    upright row - easy
    deads - taxing

    How long do you plan on doing UD2? Not the whole 12 weeks or however far out you are?

    heya pupsicle...it would be quite productive for those entering the competition in August to have a thread for us don't you think??? I seem to miss a lot of the action due our time differences. Plus it would really boost my confidence & motivation levels.

    Besides....looks like I'm going solo in the female department.....Cgirl has pulled out

    p.s I chose your journal because everybody competing reads yours.....

    yuppers, that's what i meant
    extra cardio to create the deficit but sheesh! that's like 1.5-2 hours of cardio!!

    Diet...post later

    Training
    hacks 315x5, 335x5, 365x5
    deep squats 315x5, 335x5, 365x5
    leg press 18px10, 3 sets *hip flexors were real sore during this exercise*
    bench 205x5, 225x5, 245x3
    preacher curls 105x5, 115x3...165 *5 second negative*
    seated db shoulder presses 40x10, 60x8, 80x4

    comments...not a bad session, i didn't realize i forgot to do bb rows til i left *shrug*, i will be making a couple alterations to the diet this week, kcals are coming down to 1300 on the depletion days, since i shouldnt be doing cardio post workout, i'll do like 20-30 minutes to warm up with, the refeed went ok, but i need to tweak it a bit more, i think i may change up my supplement strategy as well, but i need to figure it out before i post what i'm gonna do.

    Hmm, what did I notice about your power session....
    Sets for legs : 9
    Sets for chest: 3
    Sets for back: 0
    Sets for arms: 3
    Sets for shoulders: 3

    Might want to adjust that a bit.

    ROFL...i'll make sure i do the back next workout, i figure with the shoulders and chest i don't really need any direct tricep work, i suppose you want me doing more than 3 sets for chest and back eh

    Word! That's basically what I did too. If I did squats or deads first off I couldn't make it through the whole session. But then again, I'm weak.

    As usual, you are a model of consistency and attention to detail...nice going, Pup!

    How are you settling into classes? You're juggling quite a bit of stuff...

    I could give all to Time except - except

    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    What a top notch idea

    I'll mosey on over and check it out myself..... I'm getting a wee bit anxious because I really don't know what I'm in for..... I'm gonna order some tapes and get more information about "figure" stuff...... perhaps its a good thing I don't know what I'm doing at this stage so my mind isn't bombarded with heaps of crap.... I would like to pick somebody outstanding to model...
