    slow curls are the best to finish- that intense pump
    Thanks Wood. Not sure what was up with the presses that day. The bicep pump was ridiculous

    lol not necessarily behind the knee, just all the way down the hamstring. And keep them very light if you go with a stiff leg approach.

    65x10
    115x8, 8, 10, 10, 15

    Thats All Folks
    This is shaping up to be a week of shorter workouts lol. Only had 45 minutes to squeeze this one in. The lack of time is because I am currently cutting up and hauling off a tree that fell in my backyard. The weather has been crap lately but today was so nice I almost skipped the workout to go cut up a tree. Still, got in, got the work done, and got out.
    Squat goal was set but not met. 5 sets of 7 are the minimum goal. Almost got it but the last 2 sets the legs were fried. So I finally have found a weight to progress on. Got to be honest, I was not expecting 325 to be 50 pounds heavier than 305! Got a video of the 3rd set.
    Front squats I went a little more conservative with. My ego needed a win for the day so I added 5 pounds to last weeks 3x3 and nailed it. Last set required a decent amount of courage and effort to get 3 reps on. Got a video of the 1st and 3rd sets.
    Goodmornings were great The reason for the weird rep progression is I just wanted to get a shorter video of these to show how I usually do them and after that I was playing around with how I was point my toes. If anyone is interested, it seems toes pointed out at "45 degree" angles seems to be the best way to get the hamstrings into it more. Toes pointed straight ahead tends to bring glutes into more. This might just be me though, so dont take that as gospel

    My legs got sore just watching that most recent video...
    Front Squats are such a killer. Doing them after back squat even more so. An extra 5 pounds on them after burning your legs out on back squats definitely qualifies as a 'win'.

    Been busy as hell the last few days. I am finally done cutting up the fallen tree in my yard and all thats left is taking it to the local dumping site, which is easy enough that it won interfere with my internet time
    Everything else has pretty much started to level off around here. The stuff I got left around here to do is mostly odds and ends stuff now, such as touch up paint here and there, a few pieces of quarter round need replacing/installing, and I got some trim work to do. Good thing is one of this work is physically demanding or time consuming.

    Yesterday's workout was squeezed in between a trip to the dumping place and going to meet with the builder about the new property.

    Push/Pull/Legs
    Push Day

    15 Degree Incline Press
    25x15
    45x12
    75x11
    95x10
    115x5
    55x12

    DB Spoon Press
    55x8, 8, 8, 8, 8

    DB Skullcrushers
    25x12, 12, 12, 12

    In My Defense...
    I know my stated goal is hypertrophy but I couldnt resist going heavier until I found a weight that definitely fell into the realm of "strength training" lol. But I did keep it on the higher side of heavy reps!
    Only goal I had for incline press was to see if I could use some triple digit DBs for the work. I should have went with 105s but it still felt good to use them 115s. Gonna chalk this up to confidence building lol.
    Only goal on spoon press was to continue drilling in the form on these. I might add weight to these next week, but most likely I will see if I can add reps.
    DB skulls continue to remain my favorite extension exercise for this day. They hit the triceps hard.




    You guys let me know if you have any issues playing this vid. Seems I have a copyright issue with this one.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    90x8, 8, 8

    DB Curls
    25x15, 12, 10, 10

    Almost Strong Again...
    Goal today was originally some heavy singles in 500+ range. But, 500x2 was a better idea lol. Could have pulled it for 3 but it would have been an ugly, nasty looking rep and my right bicep is still bother me. I think when I replaced the breaks on my car a couple of days ago I managed to irritate it or something again.
    The rows were alright but I really wanted to do pullups today. The bicep did not support pullups or chinups(I tried both), so I went with a row that doesn't put as much pressure on them. These did hit the lats and traps hard, which probably means I need to lighten them up a little
    Curls were just to test out that right bicep and get some curls in. No issue with curls. Only seems to hurt when I try pullups, chinups, or DB rows(yes tried these today too lol).
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Plus you get a little more range of motion I think. Only trade off is you have to keep them a little lighter on the weight.

    255x3
    225x3
    185x3


    My Excuses
    I was testing a theory today. Last time I moved deadlifts because I figured that without the deads, squats should be easier. So today was a test to see just how much my squat would suffer if I put them after my HEAVIEST deadlift workout so far.
    My squats improved. Form seemed easier to maintain and the strength was all there. There was improvement over the last leg day, so thats really all I wanted. Even though I hit my minimum goal of 5x7, I will be sticking with 325 for at least one more workout. Those last 2 sets I thought were going to kill me just getting to 7.
    Front squats took a hit today but not a major one. I got 285x3 with a little grinding, but not as much as I thought it would be. To be real, I thought I was going to leave 285 on the safety pins lol. Felt good though. I added a little pause on the last rep of 255x3 just because I was feeling all strong and chit


    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Woooooooo!!!
    Today I was mostly focusing on the shoulders. No real goal set for the day except to move some weight with the muscles that that keep my arms attached.
    Incline presses were solid. That 95x10 was pretty close to being a 10RM.
    Single-arm presses were going smoothly until that 85x3 set lol. It is still the "clean" that is killing this lift.
    The lateral raises and front raises were done slowly to increase time under tension.
    Shoulders, and even chest, are pumped up.

    Thanks George.

    Sorry I been MIA for the last few days! I had to lay off the lifting for a few days. On my "Pull Day" I started with chin-ups and nailed a PR of 18 reps. But I should have warmed up better or something because I strained something in the back of the left shoulder. I cannot tell if it is the posterior delt or medial delt but I definitely pissed off something in that area.

    So I took the last three days off and started with Push Day again. This actually gives my legs a few more days to fully recover before putting them through another 5x7+ leg day lol. I felt a little stiffness in the shoulder but no pain and no discomfort. Just some tightness until I got a few sets into the incline presses and then even the tightness was gone.

    Push Day
    Weight: 191 pounds

    Incline DB Press
    25x8
    35x8
    45x8
    55x8
    ^^^^^Just making sure the shoulder was good to go
    75x8
    95x8, 8, 7
    55x15

    DB Benchpress
    55x8
    75x8
    95x8
    75x8, 8
    45x12

    DB Spoon Press
    45x12, 12, 12, 12

    DB Skullcrushers
    25x12
    45x10, 10, 10

    Hell Yeah
    Only goal was to test the shoulder to see if it would hold up with no pain. It was tight when I first started but by the time I got to the 55x8 even that had gone away.
    Nothing too difficult or too heavy today. The only reason I have a 95x7 on that third set is because I counted the first half rep as a rep(if you watch the video you will see what I am talking about) and didnt realize it until I watched the video myself.

    Chin-ups from the other day:




    Incline DB press: 95x8, 95x7
    DB Bench: 95x8
    Spoon Press: 45s x12

    slaying some sick incline DB numbers!
    That chin PR is crazy, in for 20
    PRs: Back Squat- 410x1 / Front Squat- 320x1/ Bench- 325x1 / Deadlift- 505x1

    Rolling on...
    Goal was 505x2. Thats it. I was actually so focused on getting 505 for a double that I forgot to put any thought into what I was going to do after the big pull.
    The DB rows were what I decided to do after doing 2 reps of neutral grip pullups(I got a trap bar the other day and put it on top of my rack, boom), 3 pullup reps, 3 chinup reps, and a set of BB rows using 135. I really need to remember to put some thought into the ENTIRE workout lol.
    Anyway, deadlifts were great and the 505 double was not that difficult. I would guess effort-wise I put in a 7/10 effort getting it off the ground(to the knees) and a 6/10 effort locking the reps out(knees up).
    DB Rows hit lats hard but I am not getting any points for form or technique lol. I got a vid of the 95 and 125 sets. Try not to critique me too hard if you watch them lol.
    Shrugs and curls were done with muscle growth in mind. A lot of time under tension and squeezing the muscles at the top of reps.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Man I get a bad ache in my anterior shoulder right at the bicep insertion point whenever I do incline curls. Think I ruptured the bicep tendon years ago. I feel your pain haha

    Been MIA in here sorry. But I come back to gold! 505 feeling easy is always impressive.

    I know you took a break from programming. Are you thinking about getting back on to one? Would be easier to plan your workouts cause you don’t have to think of what to do.

    Super innovative putting the trap bar on top of your rack.

    That is terrible! I hate nagging little injuries that remind you of something you might have fukked up in the past.

    Welcome back. Honestly I am not sure when I am going back into a normal program. Right now it isnt a good idea because I am still running around getting this house ready to put on the market, working odd amounts of hours, and I think I am coming down with a cold. Chit sucks but I am enjoying the practice of setting goals as I go.

    lol the trap bar on top of the rack does not work as well as you would think. I think with a little shimming I could make it work easy.


    Push/Pull/Legs
    Leg Day
    Weight: 191 pounds
    ***This was yesterday's workout, just didnt have time to post it up yesterday

    Squat
    135x8
    185x8
    225x5
    275x5
    Belted
    315x1

    DB Split Squat
    25s x8
    45s x8, 8, 8, 8

    Standing BB Calf Raises(Toes on plates)
    135x20
    185x15
    225x15
    275x15, 15, 15

    Just Awful
    Some days are like that, though. My theory on being able to squat more the day after heavy deadlifts seems to have been proven wrong lol. There was zero support from posterior chain yesterday.
    Squats sucked. 315 felt like 415. I almost failed getting that single rep up but I reminded myself that I was not about to be beaten by a weight I could do 5x10 with lol.
    Split squats were awesome. I stole the idea of using DBs for these from George. It never occurred to me that I could grab a couple of DBs and do these. These are much easier to maintain balance with and will probably be my go to split squat variation. Quads got a huge pump from these since the rest times were much shorter and I spent more time actually performing the lift than trying not to fall over.
    Calf raises burned in a great way.
    To be real, if it wasnt for the terrible showing on squats, yesterday's leg work would not have been counted as a disappointing leg day. I took today off from the weight and I might have to take Sunday off because my father-in-law is coming to help me install a new door to the craft room I built into the garage.

    As I mentioned above I am probably going to continue this PPL split for a while. It allows for a lot of flexibility in scheduling. I can go from lifting 6 out of every 8 days or all the way down to 3 days a week. It also allows me to back off on my "goals" if need be without feeling like I failed the program. Yesterday was a prime example of that. If 5x10 was an actual set goal, I would have failed badly yesterday.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.
