Notes: I think I have my flu/bug/cold/whatever behind me, but this workout still kicked my ass. Tired. Might be the heat in my garage. I changed from an ez curl bar to straight bar.....some thread in the General forum made me do it....lol. And I'm going to sound like a broken record, but a squat rack is a must....unsure of how much more I'll be able to yank over my head. Am I making decent progress on squats? I feel like a wuss...120lbs? I always thought I had strong legs from my work.....<shrug>

This is a new workout....felt weird....almost don't like it, but too early to say that I guess......I'll give it a go. Cows are funny!

Notes: Start 4:10/5:00 Finish-----First pull sequence...more weirdness. I dunno...feels like the upright rows are out there by themselves...<shrug>. DL's feel great! Don't know why it has taken me so long to try them.....I was going to take it easy, but kept going...lol. Really feel it in my legs/glutes.....I don't think I'll need the leg curls anymore. I did them today because I already head them written in my journal. BOR's feel way better to me than pulldowns....and I still hate leg/hip raises. Conjunction junction what's your function....

Felt good...... I knew today was the day I would increase weight......but I couldn't get 140 over my head....funny as hell. Then I couldn't get 130 over my head.....I actually laughed at myself outloud. I am being held back by not having a rack/cage.....can I borrow a dollar?

Notes: Start 4:25/Finish 5:20----Terminix....<sigh>.....unreal. Supposed to be here between 3 and 5. I get home this morning after a Sams trip, and a message on my machine says they were here at 10. Huh? I call and they reschedule for Friday. 4:50...mid workout...truck pulls in the driveway...lol. I bet someone will be here on Friday too! Anyway....they stole my chi....workout felt...well, incomplete....too much rest and bs-ing with the guy.

Curl bar is strange...not sure where I got it from...but it puts my hands closer together than a standard curl bar and my hands are over a 45 degree angle, almost palms facing each other.

Karen...stoplights at Kilroys are on me! :wink:

Pushdowns
50 10 reps
65 08
80 04

Notes: Start 4:28/5:16 Finish-----Nice workout...felt good all the way through and I am exhausted. I tell you, doing the AXBX sequence feels much better than the ABX....the extra rest is great! I picked up some material to fabricate a cheese-o-rama squat rack.....hopefully it will be beefy enough for it to last a while. I am thinking it should be safe for up to 250 lbs or so....maybe more. At the rate I'm going, that will last until this time next year! :lol: Out!

Curls(super curl bar-I found the bar online and that's what its called)
50 10 reps
65 08
80 06

Leg/Hip Raise
2 sets 15/11


Notes: Start 4:43/5:34 Finish----Diet wasn't great today....ate chick-fil-a for a late lunch and missed one meal. Work was a bitch the last couple days....I had to carry 2000 lbs of tile up three stories yesterday...lol and layed about a third of it today. Tomorrow will be the same I fear....more mediocre diet and hard work. But considering I havent worked in about two weeks, I'll take it!

Deads felt great! I did 160 today and I could really feel my body working! Wow! I'll slowly start pushing a bit to see what I'm comfortable with. BOR's were so sloppy in the last sets....more of a Kroc Row....jerk it up and slow release. Upright row.....100? lol I need to drop that down a bit I think. Shrugs felt great with more weight and I will be increasing these pretty quick as well since my Cheese-o-rama Squatinator 3000 is built and I have pins at shrug height too. Leg/Hip Raises still blow...not sure why I hate them so....? Poet and didn't know it....

Notes: Start 4:14/5:02 Finish-----Today felt great....I finished work early...almost 2 hrs earlier than expected. And did more than I had to! I was pretty jazzed about coming home to workout as today was the new squat rack day...lol. Funny what things get me excited. Not sure what to say about squats today except that they felt awesome, and should have done this a month ago....stoopid. Anyhow, whole workout felt great, like I had more energy. From not fighting to get bar over head for squats? Because I had a good day at work? Definitely not from my diet, which has been a little off the past 3 days......ok, I'll stop typing now... :grin:

Maybe it was the new speakers in my garage blasting the new Green Day album. My neighbors are not gonna like me.... :twisted:
