    Back to School!!

    well today is definitely a fresh start, i have been doing weekly - bi weekly workouts all summer, because i didn't have it in me to be serious while working 70 hrs./weekly, so i just tried to keep limber. anyways school started today, so i'm starting my new routine, so i thought i'd start my new journal. my new routine is upper half weekly, lower half weekly, boxing weekly (1 time, 20 min hi intensity), hopefully 2 times wrestling weekly, about an hour each time. anyways here's today's results (remember i've been out for months)..

    Legs

    Squats
    205 X 6
    225 X 6

    Deadlifts
    225 X 8

    Sumo Deadlifts
    225 X 9

    Good Mornings (prolly not gonna do anymore of these, wasn't feeling it today)
    125 X 10

    hyperextensions
    (holding 25lb plate) 10

    Calf Raises
    220 (on machine) X 14


    anyways i kept it on the light side as far as total sets, normal routine includes three more total sets than todays, one more for squats, deads, and calfs.

    on another note, i had two things going today that i thought helped a lot. one was a new mp3 player, this helped a lot with concentrating at a public gym (one of my weaker points). another was my pre workout intensity/ recuperation formula, which kicks ass, i'm still wired as hell.

    yohimbine (20mg i think)
    tribulus (can't remember how much, standard dose though)
    1 xantrex 3 pill (150 mg caffeine)
    2 antiox pills (coQ10, vit E, vit C, selenium)
    1 pill ginseng (200 mg)
    2 pills maca root (450 mg)
    2000mg fish body oils
    multivitamin
    4or 500mg glucosamine
    500mg vitamin c

    def recommend this formula...

    well i can tell you that preworkout thing worked a little too well. i'm two days out from my first day, and i can barely walk. if i drop something on the ground, forget about it.

    yes, it is. i did legs on wednesday, and my legs are still in crazy pain, i always used to take caffeine b4 working out, the above mix was even better though. i consistently get more and more up when i take caffeine than when i don't

    legs- because of hurting my rotator cuff on friday wrestling, i didn't think holding the bar behind my neck for squats was a good idea, so i used the leg press machine

    leg press
    360 X 9
    360 X 10

    BB deadlifts
    275 X 4
    325 X 1 (* the heaviest freeweight i've ever moved before!!)

    reverse hypers (holding 45 lb plate)
    8

    calf raises
    260 X 12
    270 X 10

    no, no meets yet, but hopefully later. i was very competitive in highschool, like beyond competitive, but i hadn't wrestled for about 4 years, so it was fun trying it again. there is no real wreslting team at my school (umass amherst), but me and a kid started the club up last week, unfortunately the first day's turnout was terrible. hopefully it will be better today, but i won't be wrestling because i hurt my rotator cuff on friday.

    i didn't do too much in my first two years, but i won my league, and was a league all star, in my junior year. i also placed 4th at states in my junior year. my senior year started well, i was ranked sixth overall in the state, but i totalled my car and got whiplash, tried wrestling and couldn't make it through a practice, had to hang up the shoes
