    Good workout today. BB Rows aren't my strong point either, which is why they have to be done. What are all those fancy machines you've got listed there? I hadn't used machines in a while (feeling kinda macho about it).

    edit: I recently briefly dated someone who had studied to be an auctioneer, so by association I feel qualified to start the bidding on Rene at $12.00. Do I hear $12.25?

    $12.25 going once...
    Wow, talk about a ripoff. Realize that buying him for $12 is like buying a Playstation 3 box for $1000. Sure, on the surface it's what you expected, but when you finally work your way inside you'll be disappointed to find a large, gaping hole where there should be what you paid for.

    December 12, 2006 - Enjoy yourselves, bitches.
    This weekend wasn't wonderful, but I can't complain too much I guess. Katy came down and we hung out Friday and Saturday. We went to dinner on Saturday night and we both felt a little ill afterward. My illness persisted across Sunday to the point where I just rested on the couch all day with a headache. I didn't eat very well, but I really couldn't handle a trip to the store to get some real food.

    I'm back to a fair diet now though and hopefully I'll get back in line with some real progression on the bodyfat soon.

    Diet and Supplementation
    Muscle milk, low-carb milk, oatmeal, turkey, pepper-jack cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, and perhaps 20 other varieties of dairy product entered my stomach the hard way.

    Animal Pak, AMP, NO-Xplode (best placebo ever), fish oil, and ETS made my day more productive.

    Workout
    This has been my first workout since restarting that I've felt fully energized throughout the entire effort. I really enjoyed it.

    Full Squats: 45x8, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 200x5, 200x5, 200x5 (+45)
    I know I'm not squatting what the "heroes" of WBB squat, but I added 45lbs more to the bar this week and it wasn't even as difficult as my previous efforts were. With luck, I'll get back to some decent numbers this year.

    Good Mornings: 135x8, 135x8
    These weren't too hard. A lot of people have trouble with these, but once I read a solid description on how they're done, I was able to really get a hamstring workout and not a lower back workout. Start with a mild quarter-squat, then lean forward and push your ass back simultaneously until your spine is as close to parallel as possible. Thrust yourself up by pushing your hips forward in a humping fashion. Is nice!

    Seated Calf Raise: +90x12, +140x8, +140x8 (+50)
    My calves hurt a little after this. Another huge increase on my weights from last leg session.

    Hamstring Curls (drop-sets): 6x8, 10x8, 12x8->10x8->8x8->6x12
    I thought the "10" setting on the machine would be enough, but it wasn't. So I started with a more difficult 12, then dropped by 2 every step down to 6. If I would've went to 4, the weight of my legs would've moved the weight far more than would've been worth while, so I ended the last set with more reps than anticipated. I thought it was a little too easy really, but as I got off the machine my legs wouldn't bend. When I went into the locker room, I couldn't cross my legs to get my socks off, I had to pick each foot up by the pant leg just to position myself correctly. The shower was difficult, particularly drying my feet. Next week I will start off with 13 and work my way down in increments of 1 and perhaps I'll be done before I hit 6.

    I was very satisfied with this workout. My legs seem too be as well. I have a ton of real-life work to do this afternoon, or I'd describe to you my sheer and utter hatred for my temporary apartment and the cable company. I'll save it for later, I suppose.

    A week old journal and you already have more squat workouts than Renee!

    I'd try to pace yourself with the squats though (the big jump), you'll squeeze more out in the long run.

    Your diet makes me want to vomit up an organ, salt it and eat it, just so I can get some flavor. Seriously--turkey, protein shake, oats.

    Also, why bother with hammie curls after doing GMs? GMs are the king of hamstring lifts (aside from GHRs).

    I plan on pacing myself for now, but I knew when I put 135 on the bar that I had a lot more in me and just a few reps at 185 and I knew that I'd be wasting my time if I didn't go harder. From now it'll be 5-10lb jumps at best.

    My diet's just fine, dude. I don't know how you cut, but if I'm going to lose fat, I need to eat clean foods.

    GMs are nice, but my hamstrings have always lagged, so I thought some extra work would hurt. Particularly since the GMs crush my entire core and the hamstring curls focus on one general area. I'm hands-down a quad squatter, so the extra hamstring work is always welcome.

    Cutting is for the weak. Bulk up over 200, then cut back. Before that, eh, its just not worth it. I'll worry about cutting if I get over 260. The I'll worry about the fat.

    I do, generally, plan it out pretty well. Lately, it's just "eat as healthy as possible" until the holidays end here and we no longer have to be surrounded with party food.

    Says the mother****er with a permanent six pack. My next step after getting to a normal fat level is to bulk to 200. For now, I'm sucking it up and getting a little leaner before I progress.

    I hear a workout happened in here... *checking.... checking*

    Good squatting there, and the GMs look good too! I think of GM's the same way and I loathe the idea of my hamstrings being secondary in that lift. 135 is a damn good weight for it, too.

    Mmmmmmm.... legs. Is niiiice.

    Yeah, the 135 was nice for not having a belt. The weight kinda rolls down my back a slight bit (keep it off my neck), which causes a lot of broken caps which show up in the form of huge red, brown, and blue bruises on my upper traps. Is nice.

    December 14, 2006 - Defeating the 12 days of Christmas
    I'm now cock-deep in the 12 days of Christmas here at work, where people bring in loads of nonsense which includes hefty amounts of cakes, candies, and other things that would normally sway me. I'm doing a fairly decent job of now gorging, but it almost seems like I'm on a cyclic diet. One day dedicated fully, one not-so-much, and so on. It might actually be working out for me, who knows? Die.

    Diet and Supplementation
    Muscle milk, low-carb milk, oatmeal, turkey, pepper-jack cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, and so forth. I will get some Nitrean here shortly, then hopefully choke down some tuna and spinach before the day ends. Who knows?

    Animal Pak, ephedrine + caffeine, NO-Xplode (best placebo ever), fish oil, and ETS made my day more productive.

    Reminds me later to tell you a little story about AMP and how never to use it 3x a day.

    Workout
    I decided that my last workout was a good prelude to start a lower/upper/lower/upper split like I had before. I always found tremendous gains from this style of split, so perhaps it'll serve me well now. If you can't refer to my old journal, then basically the outline goes :

    Upper Body Day One [Focus Chest/Biceps]
    Heavy Chest: 3x5
    Auxiliary Chest: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]
    Moderate Back: 2x8
    Moderate Triceps: 2x8
    Auxiliary Biceps: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]

    Lower Body Day One [Focus Quads]
    Heavy Legs: 3x5
    Moderate Quads: 2x8
    Auxiliary Quads: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]
    Auxiliary Calves: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]

    Upperbody Day Two [Focus Back/Triceps]
    Heavy Back: 3x5
    Auxiliary Back: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]
    Moderate Chest: 2x8
    Moderate Biceps: 2x8
    Auxiliary Triceps: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]

    Lower Body Day Two [Focus Hams]
    Heavy Legs: 3x5
    Moderate Hamstrings: 2x8
    Auxiliary Hamstrings: 4x12 [30 seconds rest]
    Moderate Traps: 2x8
    Moderate Abs: 2x8

    I will add some additional shoulder work if necessary, maybe some alternate ab items, or varied calf-work. The auxiliary work can be swapped for drop-sets if I am so inclined. All in all, the basic outline is pretty solid.

    Onto today...

    Upper Body Day One [Focus Chest/Biceps]

    DB Bench: 30x5, 45x5, 60x5, 75x5, 70x5, 70x5
    I tried to jump from 65s to 75s this time (+20lbs, not so good on chest motions) and it didn't work out too well. I guess I'll try again next time.

    DB Flyes (30 seconds rest): 25x12, 25x12, 25x12
    These burned bad, I had to stop at 3 sets. I'm not quite prepared for more just yet.

    Lat Pulldown: 10x8, 11x6
    The "10" setting seemed good, but I moved up anyway. I squeezed out a solid 6.

    Rope Pulldown: 100x8, 110x8
    110 was the perfect choice for the second set. I failed on the last rep and it was a hard, glorious ****ing rep.

    DB Curls: 25x12:12, 25x12:12
    The pump was incredible after this. I seek not these things, but I was painfully pumped.

    I felt like I should've done more, but I'll keep it here since I'm doing closer to two upper body workouts per week now. We'll see how this goes.
