Hey guys, sorry I haven't been updating this. I've been really busy the past week as my dad has been admitted to the hospital for the 12th or 13th (can't even keep track anymore) time in 2 years. I should have an update this evening after I hit legs.

1/3/11 Back

Small update, as I'm super busy. Dad is finally out of the hospital so all is good for him thank God. I've been working out with a buddy of mine, and made great progress on deadlifts. I think I've just had a mental barrier/intimidation of looking at 3 plates on the bar, but I'm finally over it which is good.

Deadlift: 135lbs 1x10, 225lbs 1x5, 315lbs 1x5, 365lbs 1x3

Back 1/17/11

Felt pretty good today. Seeing some progress with my deadlifts which is great. I have to say it is definitely one of my favorite lifts now.

Exercises:


Deadlift: 135lbs 1x10, 225lbs 1x5, 315lbs 1x10, 365lbs 1x5
Lat pull downs: Just focused on form 170lbs 3x10
Dumbell rows: 60lbs 1x10, 75lbs 1x10, 100lbs 1x8
Seated wide grip row: 120lbs 1x10, 170lbs 1x10, 200lbs 1x8
Reverse Grip bent over row: 135lbs 3x10
Isolation Lat pull: (twisting pulling down, and pausing at bottom) 70lbs 1x10

Then I finished off with an assortment of ab workouts all utilizing body weight.

Meals:

Breakfast: 2 grilled cheese sandwiches with wheat bread and colby jack cheese.

Lunch: Pasta with butter and parmigiana cheese, and turkey sausage.

Dinner: Turkey breast, mashed potatoes, gravy, and creamed corn.

You need to get those hamstrings stronger

Other than that, you're doing amazing!

Thanks! And I know haha. It se ems like every leg workout I do my quads end up dominating. When I do the squat machine I put my feet do my toes are hanging off the platform so that my hamstrings take all the load. Just for the record I can do a higher weight on the leg curls, but knees don't like it to much. I'm not hyper extending either. They make lots of unpleasent noises and cause me a little discomfort.

I'm not really found of stiff leg dead lifts. From what I've been told it is terrible for your lower back. I'm taking a break from dead lifts this week, so I'll probably do some good mornings or back extensions as a replacement. I don't know how much better those are for the lower back, but my chins really need a break lol.

I haven't heard that but I never really looked in to it. I just know that nothing else I have ever done has made my hamstrings feel like they did after straight legged deads. As long as you have proper form I think you'll be ok.

You don't want your hamstrings to be taking all the load. Rear squats use both hamstrings AND quads. (Among other secondary muscles)
For squats, make sure you are pushing back up with the heels of your feet. To get your hams more of a workout see below.

Deads are NOT bad for your lower back if you have proper form. It's just another myth like the 30g/sitting protein "rule."

What are your chins? Is that a typo meaning shins? My right shin gets scraped up a lot and it's extremely annoying.

I'm bumping this old thread because this logging thing really helped me out. I've since switched to a 5 day split, and have been feeling pretty good. I also have a big boost of motivation after last night. Ronnie Coleman came in to my gym to workout. This guy is HUGE. I think he said he is ~320lbs right now, crazy. He's was pretty nice guy, and very down to Earth.

Pics:

Ronnie do some Lat Pulls


Me and Ronnie

From what I was told one of the guys at my gym used to live across the street from him and convinced him to drop by. I wish he trained at my gym haha.

9/5/11 Chest

Short Workout today. My gym closed early than expected so I didn't get much down.

Workout:
-Push ups: 1x30
-Bench Press: 45lbs 1x10, 95lbs 1x10, 135lbs 1x10, 185lbs 1x10, 225lbs 1x5, 275lbs 1x4 1x3.

Then I had to leave. Oh well, my triceps were still pretty sore from arm day Friday so probably not a bad thing that I didn't get a full workout.
