Big sweat today. This tough and humbling.

****These were tough today... dunno why.

Right shoulder has me a bit concerned. I'll keep an eye on it.

I upped ALL the weights.

A fellow this morning was walking by me at one point. He's pretty built.. he looked at me and said "it ain't gettin' any easier." True.

*Elbows feeling the burn.
**Brain shut off. Decided no more.
***Brain didn't shut off. Decided I could do them all. Thanks.

Followed with nine minutes of stretching and some foam roller.

Today was almost a write-off. About half a dozen times I thought of stopping altogether... I even wondered why I do this.

I made it through by shutting the brain off. No sense in it talking to me when I'm trying to work out.

I'm keeping an eye open for signs of overtraining since my head doesn't seem to be into it too much the last week or so.

Decided to have this done as it's been a while.

The first numbers are from November 21st, 2007 and the second (in brackets) are from July 31st, 2008

Chest: 103cm (106)
Waist (Umbilicus): 92 (89)
Quad: 57 (57)
Calf: 38 (37)
BF%: 15.9 (14)
BFM: 28.61lbs (25.2)
LBM: 151.39lbs (154.8)
Weight: 180lbs (180)

I like what I see... if I'd stick to a better diet, I'd be doing much better.

Hypertrophy III - A11

Start: 7:13am
Finish: 8:32am

Warm Up: One Arm Alternating BB Press 45lbsx50

SS:
BO BB Row: 85x12/90x12/95x12/95x10*
BB Inc. BP: 95x12x2/95x11*/95x7**
-----
Mixed Grip Lat PD: 60x12/80x12/100x12x2
BB Push Press: 55x12x2/60x12x2
-----
Dips: BW-130x12x4
DB Cleans: 40(2-20s)X12x4
-----
Swiss Ball Crunches: 15x3

Cardio: Ten minutes of intervals on the treadmill

Thoughts: *Made 12, but it was sloppy. Same sorta deal with the Rows. Reps were getting sloppy.

**Decided against trying another rep or two.

The inside of my elbow hurts. It feels like it's at the insertion at the bottom of the bicep. I may have hurt it with the chins last time.

Followed the cardio with five minutes of stretching.

My head is just not in it the last couple of workouts. I think I may dump this early, but I do only have three workouts left.

Hypertrophy III - B11 (did this yesterday)

Start: 8:11am
Finish: 9:30am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

Rest: 120s
Tempo: 30X

Heels Raised 1&1/4 Squat: 115x4/120x4x2/125x4x2/130x4

SS:
BS DL: 95x4/100x4/105x4/110x4/120x4x2
Split GM: 85x4/95x4x2/100x4x2

Woodchop: 40x15x3

Thoughts: My head was in this more. Felt good.

I followed with a bit of stretching and foam roller.

Okay, I think I'm gonna bail on this. Ya, two more to go, but I am dealing with a couple of body pains (elbow & hamstring). I don't want to aggravate them any more than they already are.

I don't know what is going on with the hamstring, but it feels like it's being pulled tight the entire length of my leg. It did seem to go away, but I did a lot of walking this weekend and that may have brought it back.

I will be taking some time off now and will get back to it soon.

Thoughts: I followed with 12 minutes of stretching and foam roller afterward.

My weight this morning was 183.4. Apparently I enjoyed the pancake breakfast I attended a lot. :)

This little mess of stuff felt pretty good. I did change one movement for the rows as I felt there wasn't really anything devoted to the back.
