    No doubt man...and that's quite serious for parking in the wrong spot, imo - whether the dean or not.

    north, guido, coke yea. i had 21 outstanding parking tickets. $25 a piece. guido, you were right. i'm SCREWED! haha, but i'll have a while to pay it off.

    also guys, i feel like my wednesday workout is lacking and pretty much a waste of time since i cant do majority of lower lifts, so i think i will add some more chest and back work on wednesday in order to really put a lot of work into those lifts. yes or no?

    ok. so i went into today's workout session planning to do some lower work since i missed wednesday's workout, and then do friday's workout, or a condensed version of such. instead, once i got in, i decided to not to lower, bc i cant do the major lifts and i feel like i'm wasting my time, and instead try a new bench max and do friday's workout.
    I got the new bench max, and could have probably gotten 200, but the spotter touched the bar immediately after i brought the bar to my chest and guided it up. he said it was all me, but it doesnt matter. he touched it and it doesnt count. that pissed me off. i thought about trying it again with a different spotter, but i decided not to push the issue. new bench PR is good enough. i really think i can do 200. maybe on a good day, even 205! despite a bad spotter, i was pretty excited about this. i knew my strength had gone up, but i wasnt expecting that. 190 flew up. it felt real solid. i'm probably going to wait 2-4 weeks and try a new bench max @ 205. the rest of the workout was kind of rushed. i didnt have long before my school gym closed. good overall workout.

    ps. go see evan almighty. its a good movie

    Today's Weigh-In: 162 lbs . Minus 2 lbs

    Chest/Back

    BB BP -
    1 x 10 x 45
    1 x 5 x 95
    1 x 3 x 135
    1 x 5 x 140
    1 x 5 x 140
    1 x 5 x 140
    1 x 5 x 140
    1 x 5 x 145
    (move up to 5 x 5 x 145 next time)

    Low Incline DB Press -
    3 x 8 x 45s (first time with a full 3 x 8)
    (move up weight next week)

    Dips -
    3 x 10 x BW
    (do BW + 25 lbs for a 3 x 6 next time and work until i can do a full 3 x 10 x BW +25 lbs)

    Chins -
    BW x 7
    BW x 5
    BW x 3 Jumps, with negatives

    T-Bar
    1 x 8 x 55
    1 x 8 x 65 Was rocking the weight up, so dropped weight to gain isolation on back
    2 x 8 x 45 Very slow, very controlled

    Yates Row -
    3 x 8 x 155 (good weight. stick with that)

    Shrugs -
    135 x 10
    155 x 8
    155 x 10

    Abs

    Cardio - Walk 1 mile, run 1 mile


    Felt really good today. Great session in my opinion. Made up some huge ground and made some really good jumps from last week. Bench 5 x 5 felt solid with 140 and really easy, so for the last set i did 145, just for giggles to see how the weight felt, and it felt good. i'm going to add a bench 5 x 5 to my wednesday workout and do a 5 x 5 x 145. i'm also going to add some chins and maybe another back exercise since i feel like my back really needs a lot of work. maybe t-bar row.
    any suggestions?
    dips = much better! got a 3 x 10 x bw on dips. felt good. i feel like on my dips i have a lot of explosive power and can lift a lot of weight, but for high reps i struggle, so i'm going to add 25 lbs next week for a 3 x 6 and work on it till i get a 3 x 10 with it, and then add some more weight. my t-bar rows seem abnormally weak, so i'm really going to make sure i'm not trying to force weight up there, and i'm going to concentrate on slow, smooth lifts until i feel like they are strong. yates row i think i found a good weight for me at. started to get real heavy on the last reps. shrugs i concentrated on my form a lot today and really paused at the top of my shrug to emphasize the height of my pull. overall a great workout.

    about the weight. i helped a pastor friend of our family move this week to a place around 7 hours away. i didnt get to eat but about twice each day and was constantly moving boxes and what not. this was a horrible week for my bulking, but weeks like this wont happen often. its only a slight setback, and i'm not going to sweat it too much. i'm shooting for a weigh-in of 164 next week. we'll see what happens!

    Don't worry about the weight loss. Unexpected things like that happen. You'll gain it back fast, anyway, and then some.

    Good strategy really keying in on your form. It will help you more in the long run.

    guido yea. i'm not worried about the loss really. its going to be hard to get to my short term bulk goal, but its understandable under the circumstances. i'm really trying to focus on having good form and not cheating by trying to rock, or by not doing lifts properly, that way i can know i'm really working my muscles correctly

    I agree. Interval training along with cutting out all the Captain Crunch and Peanut Buttercups you eat should do the trick quite nicely. Obviously you're giong to have to eat more food to make up for eating cleanly but you should be doing that anyway haha.






    Dunno how I missed the workout. Nice job with the benching man.

    BCorn yea. i have a few dieting questions. i'm perusing the nutrition area to find some answers. if i dont, i'll start a thread.

    chubs dude, i eat one bowl of captain crunch and you get all over my ass. i'm going to start posting every thing i eat so you'll shut up. i havent had a reese cup in a month. i'm eating pretty clean. i still eat carbs and fats, but they're usually clean fats. so shut up. i will pwn you when you get back here. you will cry. and turn into ben stiller in the end of dodgeball.

    rst thanks man. the bench is feeling great every time i go. i'm going to start to put a lot of emphasis on it

    bako lifter yea. hadnt seen you around in a while. i mean, if you're going to quote me, i at least expect a subscription, haha. but i dont know whats up. you should put it as your homepage to solve that problem


    Did some HIIT today. Going to run a little with my girl and then probably do some ab work.


    SIDE NOTE: WBB should send T.I. a letter trying to get him into lifting. That is the skinniest black dude i've ever seen. He needs to start lifting with 50. just an idea. WBB Head Guys, get on that.

    did 2 sessions of HIIT. well, actually, the first one wasnt that intense, but the second was, but that may be bc i'm insanely out of shape. the HIIT looked like this

    walked 3-5 minutes
    slow jogged 1 minute
    20 sec sprint
    40 sec walk/med jog
    20 sec sprint
    40 sec walk
    20 sec sprint
    40 sec walk
    20 sec sprint
    40 sec walk
    20 sec sprint
    40 sec walk
    20 sec sprint
    2 minute walk
    5 minute jog
    5 minute walk

    is this reasonable? i'm thinking of doing a session like this on my off days: tuesday and thursday

    That should be pretty good. I wouldn't do two insanely tough HIIT sessions in the same day though. They tend to really beat your ass farther down the road.

    Tabatta Intervals seem effective. 20 seconds excercise, 10 seconds rest - 8 sets....total of 4 minutes.......these can be done with almost anything......bodyweight squats, thrusters, jump rope, run, etc.......

    I felt HORRIBLE going into the gym today. I was exhausted from HIIT last night, legs sore, and sleepy, but i had an AWESOME session. Bench felt super strong. Chins are moving very slowly, but they're moving. Can't wait till Monday to do some more Bench. It just keeps moving. I love it! Legs felt strong. Much better than the last workout. Might start some light squats bc i think my rectum has about healed up. Really pumped. I wonder what I could have done had I felt strong going into today's workout!??!
