The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    Thanks...Pruneman...I figured since I would look stupid wearing a T shirt that said "I leg Pressed 1000 pounds" around town, the least that I could do was post it here.

    That might not be heavy for some of the posters here,,,but it is really heavy for me and more than I have seen done before.

    Good to be back in the gym after three days off. This is my first day back after starting my M1T cycle three days ago. I have been on 4ad for 10 days.

    Started out goofing around and maxing on bench after warming up. Doubt it is the M1T, but my bench went up 30 pounds from last week! who knows...

    Flat Bench Press
    20x135
    1x255
    1x265
    1x275
    5x225
    5x225

    Decline Bench (still getting used to the incline and decline bench again, been using hammer strength)
    15x135
    5x205
    4x205

    Incline Bench
    6x165
    4x165
    4x165

    Pec Deck
    20x90
    20x120

    Cybex Shoulder Press Machine
    10x70

    10x70

    Upright Rows
    12x95

    Felt great after working out today. It is interesting because I am working out with a partner that is close to the same strength as me, but I made some noticeable increases over him today. Cant wait until tomorrow.

    Havent been to the gym for 3 days. Looks like I am going to be lifting on the weekend. Tore my hand up a little bit jumping fences at work (police) on Christmas Eve. Who breaks into a gun store on Christmas Eve??? Anyway, between working late and the holiday, I havent made it to the gym. I hope the gym is open later today.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Leg Day is my favorite...time issues prevented me from doing calves today (there always seems to be an excuse...need to work on that or I will end up looking like the big guys with toothpick legs that everyone mocks....as they should)

    Leg Extensions
    12x210
    12x210
    10x210

    Leg Curl
    15x230
    12x230
    10x230

    Leg Press
    12x720
    10x900
    5x1000!

    Squats
    10x135
    8x225
    10x225

    Still getting used to squats again after the knee surgery and staying light. Leg press is heavy all the way. Love it. I see the guys watching out of the corner of their eyes and I know they think that I cant do the weight. Sorry, leg press is the only thing I excel on so I get a little excited about it.

    Been on a cycle of 4AD for about two and a half weeks and on M1T for about a week and a half. I have been really impressed with my progress so far. We will see how much I keep after. I havent done arms within last week or so because I was having a little pain in my left arm on the inside of my elbow, so hopefully that is cleared up and I can do some curls within the next day or two.
