Oct. 25, 2012

Workout ‘B’

Cold outside. Rainy. Lifted on porch outside. Leaky roof.

As they say "no rain, no gain". lol

Hex bar Squats 3X5 55lbs Add at least 5 lbs. 2.5 min. rest in between.
Standing Press 3X5 45 lbs. Add 0 lbs. 2 min rest. Bad form. Discouraging.

I may have to use my fractional weights for the overhead press...I love those things!


Cold outside. I work out on my unprotected porch. So ******* what.

3rd workout on modified Rippetoe.

Workout 'A'

Hex Bar Squats 65X3X5 Add 5 lbs. Next workout
Hex Bar Deads 65X1X5 Add 10 lbs. Next workout.
Pushups...sissy kind. 10 reps.

Triceps shot.

Felt good. Sometimes we don't feel like working out but once the iron is in our hands...we can't stop.

Next workout, Tuesday. Can't wait to get a bench. Me and pushups don't get along very well.

Love this routine.

Workout 'B'

Nailed it! Felt like crap before starting the workout. After the first set of squats, everything seemed easy.

Add 10 to the squat and rows. Maybe 2lbs to press.

Bench Press 45X2X5, 1X10

Surprised I was able to add 10 lbs to Squat and 20 lbs to Deads. Felt great today. Maybe due to creatine?!

Just do it. A bad workout day is better than a do nothing day.

Took a big step today, 11/8/2012. Ordered a power cage. I'm serious as heck. Going to get my weight in line and my strength up. I'll have to fight off the chicks.. lol

Thanks. My last workout was also the first time I felt my abs and glutes involved in my squats.

I might have to go to 2 days between workouts instead of the 'official' SS 1 day. I felt so much stronger this last workout and no DOMS!
