    I haven't been updating because I'm lazy.

    Last week was good, I progressed in most lifts. Bench got 1 more rep I think. Since pullups aren't progressing, last week I started doing DB rows and will continue doing these(they're replacing pullups), I believe I did 60lb db for 9 reps both arms.

    This monday went ok, although I expected some more progress on bench. I moved up the weight to 155 and wanted 3 reps, but only got 2, that's ok. Dips went well. I did BW+ 25lbs for 8 reps. DB shoulder presses I got 40'sx7 reps I think. Skull crushers 70lbsx5-6 strict reps. Then did a 10 rep superset of leg press and leg extension, really burned quads and glutes. I weighed 180 on the last pull day, and 177 this monday.

    Today is pull day. I hope to row a 70lb dumbell for 7 or 8 reps, pullover 130x5-6, curl 90lbsx3-4 reps, and hang from the chin bar w/ 45lbs around my waist for 25+ seconds. Good luck me....

    Last week was good. Don't really remember what I did, cept got 70x5 for right arm and 70x6 for left are in DB rows. Bench still didn't progress.

    This week's press day bench didn't progress either. If this doesn't start movin along I'm gonna change exercises.
    Dips were good, moved weight up to BW+35lbs. and got 4 good reps.
    Shoulder presses got 45's for 3 strict full ROM reps.
    Skull crushers, kept weight at 70 and went for perfect reps with slow negatives. Got 70 for 5 reps, then 70 for 3.

    Pull day was good. Got 70 for 8 good reps on both arms for DB rows. Machine pullovers got 130x5.5 good reps. Forgot about shrugs lol. Curled 90lbs for 3.5 reps, couldn't quite get the last one. Grip workout kicked ass, hung from the bar(w/ towel around it) with 50lbs around my waist for 44 seconds, that's 8 seconds more than last week(KICKASS). Starting doin db wrist curls, then decided to **** those shits, they hurt my wrists and I can't get a good wrist curl with em. Got an EZ curl bar and tried some behind the back wrist curls, and with that cambered bar they KICKED ASS! Felt like such a natural motion. I put on 2 10's(40lbs total) cuz I had no idea how much I could do, and ended up doing about 40 reps lol, felt good nonetheless. Tried the EZ bar for reverse curls to, it was equally awesome. Used 40lbs for about 6 or 7 good reps w/ slow negatives. Then did the hand shake of the gods exercise, held the top squeeze for about 20 seconds w/ both hands.

    Thanks monstarr!

    Press day was monday:
    Bench press - 155lbsx3(finally!), 135x5 dynamics w/ 5 second negatives and a 2 second rest at bottom, 120x6 same tecnique as 2nd set

    Dips - BW+35lbs for 4 good reps, BWx12 low reps w/ relatively slow negatives

    DB shoulder press - 45'sx4 reps I think, can't remember, then 40x5 good reps

    Skull crushers - 70lbsx6 good reps w/ slow negs and good form

    5 mins on stairmaster. It was pretty damn intense, legs were burning like hell at the end. Burned about 100 cals.

    Felt good, weighed in at 181, started cutting today. No huge changes, just took out a coke and chips, so I'm down maybe 300-400 cals per day. I will also be cardio every lifting day, starting with 10 minutes, and working up each week to about 30. Hopefully I'll be cut enough by summer, and can start training for football royally. By that time I hope my spine will be completely better and I will be able to train posterior chain again. For football training in the summer I will be doing sprints and some strongman work, alot with a pretty normal lifting routine.

    Spine didn't bother me, cept right after school. Very pleasant soreness today, good to feel my lower back hams and glutes sore again. Forearms are INSANELY sore.
