yesterdays 5k was cut short by my achilles tendon throbbing, so it was a 2.5k which.. is really nothing.

todays workout was

70# DBs (im going to increase this to 75# next workout) Incline Press
235# DLs
175# BB Bentover Rows

for 9 sets in 20 minute and 33 seconds. Probably would've had 10-11 sets if I didnt have to keep switching the weight on the barbell for the DLs and rows.

supplementary vanity exercises;

40# DB curls, 2x8
85# Skullcrushers, 2x8

todays workout; lookin at a 4 mile bike ride to the gym for warmup and then a lot of sets of either trap bar deadlifts or RDLs after a few sets of front squats mixed with lunges (hell I might do forward lunges for once), finishing it off with weighed hip flexion/extension exercises. will end with some minor stuff like DB curls, skullcrushers, and bentover lateral DB raises. and 4 mi bike ride back from the gym for a cooldown

might start training for a mini-triathlon thats in the middle of july (swim 325 yds, run 3.2 mi, bike... i think it was 8.6 or 11.6) which basically means I have to start swimming every day since the furthest ive swum continuously in my life was 80 meters.)

will do my regular 5k run weds since the temp is supposed to decline from the high 90s...yeesh

haven;t really been updating here very much but i gotta say i did
5 sets with 225-245# for 6-8 reps doing snatch-grip sumo dls and they really work, strangely i didnt have to switch my grip to a mixed one like i normally would, the bar doesnt seem to rotate as much doing these as other dl types.


split squats
i still can't figure out how the hell to do these right, i think i might just stick to lunges

took the day off from any other lifting yesterday and maxxed out on the snatch grip, sumo style DL, the good news: i tore through my old max and hit 345 lbs! The bad news; it hurts a little when I go to the bathroom.

Well I'm back up in this piece after a lot of complications with the most recent being losing an artery in my right hand via a shard of glass entering my hand. Even more annoying the damn cut still has another 2 weeks to fully heal before I can hold something in my hand that weighs more than 5 lbs again. So in the meantime I've been whittling away and continually getting pissed off at the the lousy physical state I am in.

So this is a promise to myself to get back in it as soon as I can, and this is what I will be doing for the first 9 weeks.

I'm going to start off on the right foot with a thrice a week time workout. The idea is pretty simple, I'm going to increase volume so my body gets used to the grind sessions once again.

The schedule will go 1/2 for the first 3 weeks, meaning 1 day on, 2 days rest.
The 4th and 5th weeks will be 1/1 --1 day on, 1 day rest.
The 6th week will be back to 1/2 but with two-a-days, I will perform a & b with a 5 hour gap.
The 7th and 8th weeks will be 1,OFF,2,OFF,3,OFF,OFF
The 9th week will be 1/3 to provide a good idea of the progress made.

The goal is to perform as many cycles as possible within a given time period (23 minutes).

a) 6 reps = 1 set
Back Squats
Weighed Pull-ups
Incline Dumbbell Bench Press

b) 6 reps = 1 set
Snatch-grip Sumo Deadlifts
Barbell Bent-over Rows
Barbell Bench Press
