    Thanks borracho. At 170lbs, what do you think is a respectable deadlift x5?

    Life's pretty awesome overall. The big four - love, health, work, money - are all as good as they've ever been.

    How about you?

    I am no one to judge what is/isnt respectable...but, what is cool is a 2x BW DL (5x) which you're pretty effin close to...in order for me to do that I'd have to pull 480 five times...which isnt likely to happen any time soon.

    Dude, what the ****. You've been nice to two posters in a row. What the hell is going on? Are you high?

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    I did some googling and I've seen quotes from 1.5xBWx1 to 4xBWx5, lol.

    So chest stuffs.

    bench press: warms, 190x6, 175x8
    I could've got the extra 2 on the first set. I have no idea why I stopped.

    inc bench: 125x8, 115x8
    Better, but I feel these are far too weak.

    barbell curl: 85x8, 85x8
    ezpz

    tricep v-pushdown: 150x8, 150x8
    Need to switch exercises. This is stack and unhelpful to stay here.

    ****ing exhausted today.

    It's amazing how fast 1 week turns into 3. Got a bad head cold and was dead to the world for a week, then the next week I was still rough. I feel better now, but these colds are a bitch to get rid of entirely. Still coughing more than I'd like, which affects my sleep.

    deads: warms, 315x5, 275x5
    No problems.

    o-ring chins: +0x5, +25x3, +35x6, +25x6
    Fine - last set was a little tougher than I'd like.

    neutral cybex rowcityville: ..., 204x6, 180x5
    Whoah. Bad... these got hit the hardest from the illness I suppose.


    Back to it. Winter is the worst because colds hit so often for me. I'm excited to get back to it - I need to be ripped for my wedding/honeymoon in August/September.

    Chest day was Friday. This is my first update on my new iPad2. Love this thing.


    bench press: warms, 195x6, 185x6
    This was rough. Still recovering strength.

    inc bench: 130x6, 115x6
    Another lesser effort.

    barbell curl: 90x6, 85x6
    Can't get past 6 reps on anything...ugh.

    tricep v-pushdown: 150x8, 150x6
    actually way harder this time.

    Back to it, mostly. Not sure what I will do with progression this week.

    Tis dead time again.

    deads: warms, 325x5, 295x5
    Pleased with the jump this week. Grip held up - might hit 335x5 next week if I feel strong.

    o-ring chins: +0x5, +25x3, +35x1, +40x6, +30x6
    Very tough, I think +42.5, +30 next week.

    neutral cybex rowcityville: ..., 205x8, 181x8
    Felt better. These still aren't as good as before, but better.

    close-grip chins: 0x8

    My weekend diet sucked, but the weeks have been solid. Once I get weekends on track, my results should shine through.

    Compared to your psycho workouts anything looks short.

    btw - did chest today. It was too soon after my Friday workout, that's for sure. Even shorter than usual, but I did manage barbell curls w/ 95 for 8.

    Heavy deads with a deficit make it pretty tough to recover. I really need to get my weekend in line...more protein for sure.

    I haven't been on here for a couple of years. (yep, got all fat and shit after we had our kids and I decided that today is the day I start the journey back).

    What was the first thing I did when I logged in to this place? Yep... came here... why?? not sure. lol.

    The last time I reading this journal shit wasn't going to well for you. Clearly that's no longer the case.

    Glad to see your doing better man.

    Great to see you're around and doing well. Get less fat!

    Life is definitely good! Getting married in just a few weeks...then off to Hawaii.


    FYI - I started posting on livestrong's blogs. Easier for me because it ties directly to my diet and training.
