Core:


Squats: 145 for 5 reps: 155 for 5 reps: 175 for 5 reps: 185 for 5 reps: 195 for 5 reps. (PR for this exercise)
Again I did the first two sets of squats away from my bench.
I did my last rep on the squats with a pause and my spotter thought I needed help and grabbed the bar..... it made me so mad.... I shouldn't have got mad though. I apologized, and new that they were just trying to help. I still counted it.

Flat Bench Press: 145 for 5 reps: 155 for 5 reps: 165 for 5 reps: 180 for 5 reps: 185 for 3 reps. (PR for this exercise..... kinda)


Bent-Over Rows: 105 for 5 reps: 125 for 5 reps: 135 for 5 reps: 145 for 5 reps: 155 for 5 reps. (it was a lot easier tonight then ever before. Still need to stick with it a couple more weeks though.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Accessory:


Pull-Ups: 2 sets of 8 reps.

Lateral Raises: 2 sets of 8 reps 20lbs. I have adjustable DB's and though all along that I had 25 on them but it is actually 20. pretty easy ether way. Just don't have any more weight to put on them.

Sit-Ups: 2 sets of 15 reps BW+50lbs. (with the weight over my head... A lot harder)

Gigadie, Awwww Right.....



Core:


Squats: 135 for 5 reps: 160 for 5 reps: 180 for 4 reps: 190 for 5 reps: 195 for 5 reps.
Again I did the first three sets of squats away from my bench.
I was going to do 200 tonight, but I didn't have a spotter so just went for a tie weight. I felt like I could have done 200 though. I need to check my form. so I'm going to put up a video tonight.

---

45min before Bench Press exercise: 135X3 (warm up) 215X1 (PR by 5 pounds) (Gigadie) (1:30/2:00Min brake) 220X1 (PR by 10 pounds!!!) (AWWWW RIGHT!!!!!!)

Flat Bench Press: 145 for 5 reps: 155 for 5 reps: 165 for 5 reps: 175 for 5 reps: 185 for 2 reps.
Technically it was a 10 pound jump...but really it was 15, because I dropped to 205 pounds 1RM on my bench 2 weeks or so ago.

---

Bent-Over Rows: 135 for 5 reps: 140 for 5 reps: 145 for 5 reps: 150 for 5 reps: 155 for 5 reps.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Accessory:

Lateral Raises: 2 sets of 8 reps 20lbs.

Sit-Ups: 2 sets of 15 reps BW+50lbs. (Over my head)

Squat form wasn't to bad. I need to start the reps by pushing my hips out more and go lower then I have been.

Broke a PR on Bench tonight.

I felt like Maxing on bench tonight so I did 1 rep, to make sure I don't get sore: 225X1 (YAY) It actually went up pretty easy. I think I could do 230.

Just a note: If I remember right 225 was my Dad's 1RM PR of all time(when he use to train) and I'm finally there!!!!!!!........wait,..Now what????lol

I'm starting to get "HUUJJJEE", as everybody on here calls it.

I started taking BSN's Creatine today, so if everything go's as it usually does when I take Creatine (and if this Creatine works as well as the previous brands I've used) my strength should really start picking up.
