Week Eight - Day Three - Heavy Day - Last Day

Start: 7:51am
Finish: 9:02am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

Front Squats: 65/100/120/150/170x5 (2 min rest)
Lat Pulldowns: 80/120/140/160/180x5 (60 second)
BB Bench Press: 65/100/135/155x5/175x4 (2 min)
OH Press: 65x15/9/6/6/7/5/5/5/6/6 (60 second)

Thoughts: The Front Squats were good today. The clean from the floor on the last set was pretty good compared to last week.

Due to common sense, I held the last set on the Bench to four reps. I paused for five seconds between the third and the fourth and felt a bit of a twinge in the right medial delt. Decided four was better than going to the doctor.

Followed this with ten minutes of stretching.

I am dog tired today. My daughter was up most of the night with a sore stomach. As a guy, I hardly heard her. So my wife was up much more than I was. I did get up with her for a bit though.

This was the last day of this routine. I think I'll start one from "The New Rules Of Lifting" and see how that goes.

I will do an assessment at home this weekend. I'm off to Edmonton for two days and then I'll get an assessment done at the gym on Wednesday of next week.

My overall thoughts on this routine are good. I like the basic moves with a smidge of isolation stuff. We'll see what the assessments hold for me!

Break In Program - Workout A - Week One - Day One

Start: 7:49am
Finish: 8:35am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

SS:
Front Squat: 2x15x100lbs (too heavy)
Static Lunge: 2x15x20lbs (these aren't any better than a regular Lunge.
------------------------------------------------------------
SS:
Two Point DB Row (Elbow Out): 2x15x12lbs
Push Up: 2x15
------------------------------------------------------------
Swiss Ball Crunch: 2x20

Thoughts: Doesn't really look like too much, but I though I was gonna die. Probably because I started with too much weight on the Squats. I did get them complete, though.

I followed this with some stretching, which I found a challenge today as I was pretty shaky.

This is the precursor to a program from New Rules Of Lifting. I'm thinking of doing one of the Fat Loss Programs, but we'll see. This particular Break In is for three weeks. Assuming I live through it.

I made it through a horrible day of walking yesterday. My goodness... that accidental Superset was killer. Only on my most masochistic days will I do that Squat/Lunge Superset again.

Today:

Break In Program B - Week One - Day Two

Start: 7:46am
Finish: 8:31am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

Deadlift: 115lbsx15x2
----------------------
SS:
DB Step Up: 40lbsx15x2
DB One Arm Shoulder Press with Bend: 10lbsx15x2
----------------------
SS:
Close Grip Lat Pulldowns: 80lbsx15x2
Reverse Crunch: 20x2

Thoughts: After Monday, I thought I'd play it safe woith the weight. Here's what I can do different: add weight to the Deads, get a higher step and add weight. I can also add weight to the Pulldowns.

I stretched for about ten minutes after this was all done. Glad I did this today and worked through the DOMS from Monday. Once I got going, they weren't too bad.

Break In Program A - Week One - Day Three

Start: 7:56am
Finish: 8:45am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill. Incline at 5 and the speed at 4.

Front Squat: 85x15x2
--------------------
SS:
Static Lunge: 20x15x2
Two Point DB Row with Elbow Out: 20x15x2
--------------------
SS:
Push Up: 15x2
Swiss Ball Crunch: 20x2

Thoughts: I followed this with some stretching. Felt pretty good.

This was better than Monday. Might have something to do with the fact I knocked 15 pounds off the Front Squats. That was a good weight. The weight on the Lunges was good and challenging.

Not bad, really, for only getting about five hours of sleep last night.

Thoughts: Good weights today. I think I can stay with them for the next time. Maybe up them for the last week. I think the height is good on the Step Ups for now. About midway up to the knee. I'll use this weight at this height.

Followed it all with some stretching.

I can up the weight on the DB Rows. I'll stay with the weight on the rest.

Break In Program B - Week Two Day Three

Start: 9:58am
Finish: 10:50am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the mini-trampoline

Deadlift: 145x15x2
-----------
SS:
Static Lunges: 20x15x2
DB One Arm OH Press: 20x15x2
-----------
SS:
T-Bar Rows: 65x15x2
Reverse Crunches: 20x2

Thoughts: Followed all of this with some stretching and some foam roller work.

I also did this at home since the gym was closed for Easter Friday yesterday. Because of this, I made some movement changes. Step Ups were changed to Static Lunges, I did the OH Press seated, and the Close Grip Lat Pulldowns were changed to T-Bar Rows.

I'm beat.

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

Front Squat: 85x15x2
-----------
SS:
DB Static Lunge: 20x15x2
Two Point DB Row - Elbow Out: 20x15x2

Thoughts: I had a poor sleep last night. Managed about five hours or so. Almost didn't want to come in to the gym today, but did anyway.

I think I've found a groove with this weight. Three more workouts in this to go.

Followed this workout with about seven minutes of stretching.

I still hate lunges.

Break In - B Week Three - Day Two

Start: 7:50am
Finish: 8:37am

Warm Up: Five minutes on the treadmill

Deadlift: 145x15x2
--------
SS:
Step Up: 40x15x2
DB One Arm OH Press: 20x15x2
--------
SS:
CG Lat Pulldowns: 90x15x2
Reverse Crunches: 20x2

Thoughts: Followed this with twelve minutes of stretching. Overll, the workout felt good today. Nice, steady pace with good weights all around.

I used the bench today for the Step Ups instead of an aerobic step. It was about six inches higher. That made it that much more difficult.
