    LOWER DAY #3

    Back is still sore from rack pulls, so I skipped hex deads. Made this more of a high volume workout to make up for missing Lower Day #1.

    Smith Machine Calf Raise off a step, 2s peak/2s stretch to floor

    I'll do abs tomorrow. Pretty beat today. We won last night, 7-3. I had only 1 goal but it was pretty. After a save on my initial shot, their D took it from behind the net and tried to clear through the crease. I knocked it down and was able to slide it past the goalie, bar-in. Damn near missed again!

    Would have loved to see that! I don't score many goals maybe 2 -3 over 23 games, but I get a decent amount of assists, or at least that good first pass to break out with.

    Perfect example of why you don't send it in front of your net. I've done that a bunch, but failed to do so many more times. I'll always try though! Somewhat unrelated, I once had a defender try to send it up through the circle from behind the net while I was trying to block him. He didn't get it up, I caught it, and in one motion swept it in front of the goal line and backhanded it STRAIGHT up above the goalie's shoulder. I couldn't do that again so quickly and smoothly if I tried, but boy was that sick. That guy just wanted to crawl into a hole!

    For a Dman like you, any goals are icing on the cake. Like a goal-oriented forward who actually comes back and is direct cause for saving a goal against. On our squad now, we have 1 defender out of 4 who actually makes good passes to start plays out of our zone. The rest just try to skate it up and often force us forwards out of position by being where we should be (and not doing what they should). If you have no sense for hockey I suppose it's not so bad, but good lord it drives me crazy because I know I'm right. And it's not like they say "Hey, when I do X I'm wanting you to do Y" either, which would be helpful... BTW, skating up so often usually causes oddman rushes =P

    LOWER DAY #3

    Unilateral Leg Press Calf Raise, 3s peak/5s negative
    90x8, 100x12, 100x12 each
    Both 180x15, 230x10, 270x8, 300x8, 310x8
    Feeling this one out. Felt better as I got familiar with it.



    Hex bar deads
    135x10, 225x6, 315x6, 365x4, 425x10
    +4 reps on heavy set

    *********
    Quite beat from smashing my DL record, I was NOT about to do Bulgarians!

    Skipped: Bulgarian Squat, each leg, weight per DB, 10s between legs/RP 50x6 RP drop 40x5-6 RP drop 30x6-8
    *********


    Lying Leg Curls
    80x10 2up/1down
    RP 80x8 straight. 2 fewer reps but I'll blame the deads.


    Wide Leg Press, explosive lift, toes out for sweep
    320x20 drop 270x15



    Frog Crunch
    12, +15x8, +15x8, +15x8



    Won hockey last night. Hit the post 4-5 times, half on relatively open nets (redirect/one-timers) but set up the game winner late in the 3rd. The season of frustrating production continues, but at least it's my own fault now and not my teammates being bums.

    UPPER DAY #3

    Warmup circuit:
    Parallel Dips / Straight Arm Pushdowns / Face Pulls / Incline Slow Pushups


    Incline BB Press: 195x8,5,4,4 RP (+2)
    SS w/Gironda Dips: x15
    SS w/cable flies: 40x10 3sp / 10 straight
    SS w/Gironda Dips: x8


    Converging Pulldown Machine
    140x20 RP 150x10 RP 180x8,6 RP


    Frog Crunch
    15x8, 20x8, 20x8, 20x8


    Snatch Grip High Pull (experimenting)
    95x5, 115x4, 145x4, 165x5 (pin pull)


    OH DB Extensions 25x8 add 30x8 add 35x6 RP 40x8 each arm
    SS w/Rope French Press/OH extension 80x15
    SS w/Fwd rope extension 3s peaks 80x8
    SS w/Tail ends w/3s peaks 50x15


    DB Hammer Curls, 2s peaks
    25x20 RP
    SS w/Drag style DB curls x12,10 RP
    SS w/Chinup static peak hold 30 seconds


    DB tibialis raise
    50x30,25,20,25 RP
    60x15,15,10 RP


    Hopefully the high pulls can replace direct trap/delt work on at least 1 upper day, saving me time and yoking me out simultaneously. They felt pretty good. I can (or used to) strict upright row 135x6-10 or so, with a snatch width grip. So I should be able to crank some weight on these!

    UPPER DAY #1

    Warmups Gironda Dips x8 / Wide Pullups x8
    Gironda Dips x8 / Face-level Face Pulls 60x20


    BB Rows: 245x12,6,5
    Less than perfect, but +5lbs and 1 rep, and held the peaks slightly unlike last time. Solid!
    SS w/Pulldowns 120x15


    Slight Incline DB Press: 105x9 drop 80x12 drop 65x10
    Instead of super setting, I took an actual break and did:

    Gironda Dips x20 that's a new record by 5 reps

    Presses were just too heavy today to do RPs. Going to aim for 15-20+ reps with 95s next, which should beef up my tendons and all that underlying goodness which will elevate me to something like 120x10+ eventually.


    Snatch Grip High Pulls
    135x4, 155x4, 185x3


    BB Drag Curls 105x15,6,5,4 RP


    Dual rack Incline Skullcrushers (total weight)
    100x12,6,5,6,5 RP


    Still skipping direct rear delt & trap work in favor of the high pulls. I’ll do the opposite on upper day 2. High pulls are feeling good, I really hope they bring results. 185 was rough until the last rep, still working on explosiveness.

    Both: 250x10,5,5,5,4 RP

    10 / 10
    10 / 10



    Leg Press 2up/1down

    Rather than SS sissy squats with curls, did these to save time/add tonnage. They felt great too!


    Lying Leg Curls
    70x8 add 90x5 add 100x5 RP 110x7 drop 90x5 drop 70x9


    RDL
    225x12,6,6 - 24 as fast as possible instead of 4 reps every 40 seconds. Went much quicker!




    Had to skip the leg press giant set since someone was on it and I had no time to spare (groan). At least the RDLs blew me up. I'll be sure to focus more on quads vs. hams on Friday.

    Got barely 4hrs of sleep on Thurs, so Friday's workout ending up being skipped. I was planning all day to do it, but my pre-gym nap led to feeling worse. Combined upper/lower into a longer workout this morning. Whew!



    UPPER / LOWER DAY #3

    x80 each Gironda Dips SS w/Neutral Grip Pullups, between other sets for easy volume



    Standing squat machine calf raise
    3s peak, 5s stretch
    90x10, 90x12

    Leg Press Calf Raise - 3s peak/5s negative
    280x10,6,5 RP / drop 240x8,4 RP +30s deeeep stretch

    Double whammy for back and hams. And also for delts and traps! I'm loving these and form feels awesome. Gotta get that 185 moving more and we'll be talking. Having fatigued hamstrings surely didn't help either, so not bad at all!

    Notes & thoughts:


    Chest: My goal is development. Haven't done BB bench in a couple months, except for some incline work here and there, but overall I'm trying to kill the contractions and "round out" and beef up my outer pecs. My inner pecs are great, you can see insertion points and great thickness. My old training partner was always jealous of this; which was funny because he was perpetually ripped but didn't have the slabs of pec meat. Upper pecs show nice separation from lower, and despite the fat I carry in them you can see I have striations waiting to bust out.

    Delts: Goal here is width and catching my rear delts up. Front delts were, as with most, a bit overdone. All the side delt hypertrophy work I've done over the past few months (on top of the direct work I've always done) has helped this along. We all know how delts look huge when lean because the insertion point to the arm shows that taper/V, but I have that soft and unpumped now which is new. When I'm pumped, they look insane. Not ripped or anything, but greatly developed. Rear delts are popping out nicely, someone even commented on how crazy they looked. When I lean over and flex the shoulder complex, I can see what I feel to be an even development all around now.

    Arms: triceps remain thick as hell, lateral head is getting attention now as they may have fallen a bit compared to the thicker heads. Bicep peak is coming along thanks to either the added frequency or drag curls. Nothing else has changed w/them. I need to continue with wider grips though to round out that peak. I've never had great peaks, but my inner biceps have always been great AND the 2 heads are still showing a solid split/separation.


    Abs: always horrible thanks to the fat I carry there, but I can tell they are coming along. If I dialed my nutrition in for a bit I could see some serious progress, but with all the stress in my life, taking it easy on diet is the only thing I can relent on. And I don't really mind, so **** it. I should probably add some more serratus/oblique work again because I THINK those areas are lacking to where they were last year. I'll revisit these thoughts when I have time to sit down.


    Traps: thickness is insane thanks to the Yates style BB rows I slaughter weekly. So much so that more and more shirts don't fit. I need trap height, hopefully the high pulls take care of this.


    Calves: always the biggest problem, but always trying to get better and grow 'em.


    Hamstrings: I really feel the double negative curls have helped develop a nice rounded shape over the past couple months. That and all the RDLs, which I've always loved.


    Quads: all head separation is still there even when cold. They're not as big as they were in my heyday, but that's fine, as I'm not dreading leg days nor having trouble fitting into pants every day. They also perform for hockey and that's half the point since I gave up being a mass monster for the sake of performance and "best of both worlds" success. Could use a bit more thickness in my outer sweep, but the rest pleases me.

    Sleep, this happens to me often. I was set to workout at 530 this am but slept like sh*t, going to do it tonight.

    Liking those snatch grip high pulls. Do you get hip contact there? You are 2/3 of the way to a power snatch there!!

    Cool that you are in touch with how you would like to look, and how your training influences it, I haven' the foggiest idea of this works.

    155x5, 185x1, 205x1
    Wasn't feeling these today. Wanted to try to go heavier so I got an OK +20lbs. I think the pins messed me up.

    Machine dips 180x20 +10s static

    Do you mean bounce off the hips? If so, I'm trying some with and without to see which I like best. At first it felt better with the bounce, but once I (feel like I) dialed in my hip hinge form I think I prefer without the bounce.

    Last weekend when I had to do full body, I was THIS CLOSE to trying a clean and press or jerk but didn't want to get too ahead of myself.

    Regarding the visualization and training for specific results, it's like Arnold said in Pumping Iron:

    https://youtu.be/keIghFgeh4A

    Consider it art and that you're sculpting what you want to see. Easier said than done but and to some it's a dumb way to put it, but that has always worked for me. I incorporate many purposes into my training, but that's the one which I feel separates some people from others in having great development (vs. just being huge, having no muscle separation, etc.). A bigger muscle here with a smaller muscle there = illusion of hugeness. Lots of small guys look huge because they're big in the right spots, but put em next to a large guy with similar development and he'll look like a kid.

    Another combined upper/lower day due to minimal sleep Thursday. Crazy weather kept me up. Lost the hockey game in a shootout (I didn’t shoot), but I at least got the game-tying goal: a heavy bar-in tip. Wish we could plan it that way all the time, it was pretty lucky and felt awesome. Surprised everybody, especially me.


    UPPER / LOWER DAY #3

    Seated Calf Raise, hard peak/3s stretch
    90x15, 120x10, 140x8,5,5 RP

    Leg Press Calf Raise - hard peak/3s stretch
    320x8,5,5 RP / drop 270xF quicker tempo +40s deeeep stretch



    Gironda Dips / Neutral Grip Pullups / Skater Squats
    x10 each x3 sets, no rest between except to change stations

    Gironda Dips SS w/Neutral Grip Pullups

    Won hockey last night, had 2g1a. First goal was one of my best ever which included picking up a puck from a broken play in our zone, toe dragging and sliding through the defender's stick, and a killer backhand perfectly in that little pocket of the far corner so it just popped out. Second was a one timer with a mostly open net thanks to my positioning and a great pass. My assist was through 2-3 people and to our guy who scores the least; I'm glad he got one! And I even threw one guy who bodied me up and absolutely cruuuuushed another who ran straight into me. My team and a ref were talking about that all night - lol

    My right glute/hip was killing me the other night and I couldn't even come in to do upper body, but I'm giving lower a go today to stay on track otherwise. Slightly lowering volume tonight too because of it. Not sure what happened, it was slightly agitated on Sunday and then became incredibly painful at night. I couldn't even put weight on it walking up the stairs, getting up from sitting, moving it while lying in bed, etc. It was much better when I woke up and pretty much went away by the following night. Very weird.

    I suspect maybe the bulgarian squats are the culprit? Who knows. It felt great tonight and hopefully it'll stay that way. Hockey playoffs begin Thursday!

    So far so good w/the leg/glute!

    Also a couple cool notes

    1) I won a Scivation contest on the Nutrition board (I think I just got lucky to be picked) to get 2 free containers of XTend BCAAs. I've been wanting to try them again now that I'm on nearing 40 and have changed my training up to more frequency. Excited to see what I get out of it.

    2) I'm doing some travel in a few weeks and found a local gym owned by a former student of Vince Gironda. So I've set up a session w/him to see what he knows, have him watch my form on Vince moves, etc. Very excited for this opportunity!

    I know full well that my current upper/lower/frequency split is not a Gironda thing, though I do work some of his moves into it. I kinda fell into reading a lot about both around the same time, and decided to toy with them and implement the two as best I could. If nothing else, I've gotten exactly what I wanted out of the Gironda exercises (noticeable change) and I think the split itself is helping my overall composition. In due time I do intend to do a full Gironda style routine, so this should help me ascertain what exactly that should entail.

    Calves are still sore from Tuesday, which is pretty rare! I will repeat that pre-gym stair routine next week.



    Gym was absolutely ridiculous today. Everything was taken, had to improvise. There was even a guy doing leg press with 2.5 plates on the sled. What the hell…

    Couldn't do Smith Bulgarian Squats because some clown took 15+ minutes doing a 120lb full body Smith Machine bench press / cell phone theater combination. ****ing moron… at least I blasted my legs on the leg press, they're killing me now!

    Skipped: Smith Machine Bulgarian Squats, each leg
