    Westsiiiiiiiiiddddeeeeeee!!!!!

    10/01

    These are my most recent maxes to date in the big three:

    Squat- 295 lbs
    Bench- 205 lbs
    Deadlift- 330 lbs

    These were all at approx 155-157 lbs.


    This journal will follow me through the next 18 weeks in which I will be wooping Dabomber's ass! Progress is inevitable. I have the desire and focus to achieve my goals and I will stop at nothing to get them. Latty is gonna kick some ass and move some iron!!

    Maximum Effort Squat day
    Goodmornings- 165x1, 185x1, 205x1, 225xfailed
    Zercher squats- 115x6, 135x6, 155x6
    Pull throughs- 70x12, 80x12, 90x12
    Standing Abs(cable)- 2 sets

    Happy with the goodmorning max. I don't know which exercise is tougher between those and the Zerchers. They both kick my ass! Getting better at pull throughs. Side bends, I'm up to my heaviest dumbell for 2 sets of 8. Another good workout and all done in about 37 mins.

    Thanks Termy.

    Well, Latty went away to New Jersey this weekend with family and slacked off. I was a bit mad at myself, but then was thinking that it is good to show a sense of normalcy sometimes and not get too crazy over a few missed meals and a missed workout. So fuk it. I missed my ME bench day, but it will be ace next week! I went to Atlantic City and stayed up all night Friday gambling with my family. It was ace! I lost about $350 and then, while my family was finishing paying for breakfast, I went up stairs to "cash in my chips". Saw a open blackjack table and said what the hell. I sat down fort about 3 minutes and won back $100. Sweet! All in all it was fun, but didn't sleep much.


    Back to business as usual.

    10/8 weight- 153 lbs

    DE squat day
    Box squats(12")- 155 lbs 9x2
    SLDL- 245x5, 275x5, 305x5, 335x2(!) (Sup B?)
    Pull throughs(light)- 40 lbs 2x15
    Standing abs(cable)- 1 set
    Side Bends- 1 set


    Box squats- very happy with speed!

    SLDL- DAMN! I didn't think I had it in me. That's 5 more lbs than my conventional dead max from about 6 weeks ago!

    Side bends- need heavier dumbells. I will get them soon.

    Overall- Ace workout after a crap weekend of nutrition and rest!

    *note to all you hyuugge mofos*

    I perform sldl's to the point just shy of my back rounding. For me, the bar touches about the middle of my shin and then reverse the movement. That being said, for some reason I seem to have decent strength pulling the bar, but I'm weak at squats and presses. Go figure.

    Arched back goodmornings- 245x1, 265x1, 285x1, 305x1
    Zercher squats- 135x5, 155x5, 175x5

    I think I have strength imbalnces or something weird. I did sldl with more than my conventional and now I do goodmornings with more than my squat. weird, good workout nonetheless.

    ME bench day
    Close-grip benches- 175x1, 195x1
    JM press- 65x8, 75x8, 85x8
    BB rows- 145 lbs 2x6
    Inc. elbows out ext.- 30'sx8, 6
    Rotators


    Very good workout! Hit a pr on close grips. The weight started up, then I had to give it everything I had to move it inch by inch and then finally locked it out.

    JM press felt awesome. Totally killed my triceps.

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    That I will be Maki Mak!

    10/15

    DE squat day
    Box squats(12")- 160 lbs 9x2
    SLDL- 245x3, 275x3, 315x5
    Then just a few light sets of pull throughs and standing abs.


    I have been going through a very tough time these last 5 days or so with the recent break-up with my girlfriend. It was definitely on my mind and affecting my workout, so I cut it short. I did however hit my goal of 315x5 on sldl, but it's scary to have that much weight in your hands and be thinking of something else while you rep it out. Not a safe situation. Hopefully everything will work out for the best and I can get my mind back on track.

    10/17

    DE Bench day
    Speed benches- 130 lbs close-3x3, med-3x3, wide-2x3, 175 lbs 1x3
    Inc. Close grips- 115x8, 125 lbs 2x6
    Seated row(overhand)- 150 lbs 2x8
    Reverse curls(ez-curl)- 2 sets of 10


    I am going to make the following changes:
    For now, I will not add an extra heavy triple at the end because I was not happy with the speed. I will be following the benches with an extension instead of inc. close grips. I will probably up the volume slowly in the next few weeks too.

    As for squat day, I will drop sldl's for a while and start to do speed deads. Depending on how I feel, I'm toying with the idea of doing a dead contest on December 1st in the 148 class. Not really sure yet though.

    Weight- 150 lbs
