    That wraps up the first week of this period. Got some good work done today, which I needed as I ate a bit too much at my birthday dinner last night.

    I'll probably do the heavy bag tomorrow, and start this split again on Sunday. Next week Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are going to be extra busy, so I may have a built in break coming up.

    Changed my mind about today's traning, mostly because my wife decided to move today's shopping trip to tomorrow, and did delts and traps today.

    Supps:
    Con-Cret & protein powder
    caffeine
    Beta-Cret
    Gluta-Tren

    Shoulders
    Bent Elbow Front Hammer Raise/Lateral Raise/Face Pulls Giant Sets
    14x35/13x25 +1 rep/14x52.5
    14x35/13x25 +1 rep/14x52.5
    14x35 +1 rep/12x25/14x52.5 +1 rep
    14x35 +1 rep/12x25/13x52.5 +1 rep
    Delts feeling hot after that.

    Traps
    Upright Rows/Carlman Shrugs Compound Sets
    14x65/13x45 +1 rep
    14x65 +1 rep/13x45 +1 rep
    14x65 +1 rep/12x45
    14x65 +1 rep/12x45
    Constant trap tension through every rep on the uprights.
    Good form on the shrugs.


    Abs
    Knee Raises
    21 +1 rep, 21 +1 rep, 20 +1 rep

    Dang, there's a lot of red there. Delts and traps feeling spent.

    Gotta take a serious nap, then we are meeting some friends at a Chinese restaurant for an early Chinese New Year's dinner. Eating out a lot lately - which is both good and bad.

    Slight Switch Around

    Decided to experiment with switching the order of exercises on each superset to work chest first, then back, making it a true "push/pull" routine. Read on -

    Supps:
    Con-Cret & protein powder
    caffiene
    Beta-Cret
    Gluta-Tren

    Chest/Back
    Flat DB Press/Front Lat Pulldowns Supersets
    14x50 +1 rep/14x75
    13x50 +1 rep/14x75 +1 rep
    13x50 +1 rep/13x75 +1 rep
    13x50 +1 rep/13x75 +1 rep
    The switched order felt great all the way through these sets.

    Flat Flyes/DB Rows Supersets
    14x50/13x80 +1 rep
    14x50 +1 rep/13x80 +1 rep
    13x50 +1 rep/13x80 +1 rep
    13x50 +1 rep/13x80 +1 rep
    Upper body getting swole already.

    Incline DB Press/Carlman Pulls Supersets
    14x40 +1 rep/14x50 +1 rep
    13x40 +1 rep/13x50 +1 rep
    13x40 +1 rep/13x50 +1 rep
    13x40 +1 rep/13x50 +1 rep
    Good strict form here. Muscles were beat.

    The switched order seems like a nice variation and made this routine feel a bit "newer". I can still feel it in all my muscles three hours later.
    I also like all the little red "+" signs I got to log today.

    Tomorrow night is our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper at church, which starts pretty early - and steps on my workout time. I may be able to train on Wednesday if I get home from work in time - before we have to be back at church for Ash Wednesday.
    Thursday we have tickets for The Book of Mormon (had them for about 14 months - seriously) so I may have a 3-day break coming. No worries. I work hard and plan to "beast blast" my body once this week is over. I'm 56 now and I want to be a big, bad, buff "senior".

    Post Pancake Training

    Got home earlier than I expected from the pancake supper at church so I decided to get in a workout before two busy days.

    Supps:
    Con-Cret
    Beta-Cret
    Gluta-Tren
    Got coffee, along with carbs and protein (pancakes and sausage), at supper.

    Triceps/Biceps
    Skullcrushers/EZ-bar Curls Supersets
    15x65 +1 rep/14x55 +1 rep
    14x65 +1 rep/14x55 +1 rep
    14x65 +2 reps!/13x55 +1 rep
    13x65 +1 rep/13x55 +1 rep
    All that red, especially the "+2", really tell the tale of these supersets.
    Continue to use the arm blaster on the EZ-bar curls

    I'm finding it really helps me hit the biceps just right.


    Kickbacks/DB Scott Curls Supersets
    15x32.5/13x22.5
    15x32.5 +1 rep/13x22.5 +1 rep
    13x32.5 +1 rep/13x22.5 +1 rep
    Done with an even, steady pace to fully work the muscles.

    2-hand Pushdown/Tricep Bar Spider Hammers Supersets
    14x70/13x45
    14x70 +1 rep/13x45 +1 rep
    14x70 +1 rep/13x45 +1 rep
    Kept elbows in tight on the pushdowns; good bicep squeeze at the top of the hammer curls.
    Very pumped up guns.


    Abs
    Knee Raises
    22, 22

    I am very glad I decided to squeeze this one in. Muscles got some powerful work done.

    Now I have two rest days - and my body will enjoy them - and be totally ready to work the legs on Friday.

    A step backwards is better than a setback.

    If this (insert whatever trivial thing that is upsetting me) is the worst thing to happen today, I'm going to have a great day.

    Cardio

    Heavy Bag
    5 rounds @ 5 minutes each
    Throwing in more MA technigues. Getting more hot and sweaty - that will be really good once we get warmer/hotter weather.

    Got in and got it done. I find that's the best way to handle the non-lifting days.

    Used the Weight to Work the Muscles!!

    Got my swole on today.

    I read an article from T-nation today about working muscles vs. moving weights. It made me refocus myself today and put more emphasis on what the target muscles are doing. As much as I love logging the little red "+" signs I care much more for what I look like both in and out of my shirts. I may not be pushing for the "+ reps/weights" quite as much if I'm feeling and seeing the muscles working and responding.
    Really it's a delicate balance; the muscles develop based on time under tension (TUT) so if the TUT stays the same, muscle development can stagnate. On the other hand, pushing muscles beyond good form and target muscle work just for those "+" signs has it's risks, and can impact size and shape development.

    And now I've gotta eat something and feed these hard worked muscles.

    These were all about working the muscles - not moving the weights. Great delt work.

    Upright Rows/Carlman Shrugs Compound Sets
    14x65/14x40
    14x65/13x40
    14x65/13x40
    13x65/12x40
    Used the mirror to be sure the traps got worked. I also backed off 5# on the Carlman Shrugs to get my form better. I think it was a good choice.

    I am very glad I read that T-nation article a couple of days ago about working muscles vs. moving weights, and knowing why you're training. I had one great delt and trap session. The target muscles got a solid working. Plus my stomach has been acting up a bit today, so focusing on the feeling of the muscle at work rather than pushing myself to log added reps made what could have been a mediocre session into a good one.

    This also starts my last week of light weight/high rep work so I'm going to do all I can to get the most out of these sessions and be ready for the next period.

    I based all my rep counts on the feeling in my muscles, rather than the number of reps in my log book from last week. Just as long as I did 12 or more reps (it is supposed to be high rep period).
    I felt a bit sickish yesterday so I took the day off. Found just enough stamina to get this in today.

    A super arm workout today. Actually I did fewer reps overall, but they were much better quality and I really got the muscles well worked.

    More muscle-focused sets all the way today. Legs felt very shaky when I was done - which is always a good sign.

    Done with the high rep/low weight period. And I have to say I'm liking very much what I'm seeing in the mirror.

    Chest/Back
    Flat DB Press/Front Lat Pulldowns Supersets
    9x65/9x95
    9x65/9x95
    8x65/8x95
    8x65/8x95
    Very deep ROM on the presses.

    Flat Flyes/DB Rows Supersets
    9x65/9x100
    9x65/8x100
    9x65/8x100
    8x65/8x100
    I'm still in awe a bit around doing 100# rows for working reps. I remember when 100# rows were a goal - and a bit far out there goal. I also can remember rowing 35# and feeling like I was working. OK, I'll say it. I'm a much stronger man than I used to be.

    Incline DB Press/Carlman Pulls Supersets
    9x50/8x65
    8x50/8x65
    8x50/8x65
    8x50/8x65
    Focused totally on working the pec muscles on the incline presses. Result: The best sets ever(!) on this exercise.


    Today's notes tell the tale. It was a great workout. Now time to rest, relax, and feed these well-worked muscles.
