Exercise Log 6.23.14 (Front Squat & Bench Press Day)

I’m counting today as the end of this training cycle, aside from bouldering and the failed Rachel Carson hike, I also helped a friend move all weekend so I’m counting all three of those things as an informal “dev day”. So all I need to do is this workout to finish up. It went well

Exercise Log 6.18.14 (Bench Press & Deadlift Day)

Speeding up my logs at this point so expect this to be a little shorter. Bench Press & Deadlift Day, on my final workout cycle. Decline Bench Press: Used 175lbs as my estimated max, felt it was a little low after assessing it. Only serious issue was liftoff, pressing the bar was fine. Feel like

Exercise Log 6.17.14 (Deadlift & Front Squat Day)

So begins the 6th and final cycle of my 6 week/cycle program. I’m really enjoying the progress of the program so far and feel like I’m making steady gains. The structure of the program is fun, and I love that as I go I get to tweak and make it better. One chronic issue of

Dev Day record for the end of cycle 5. Wanted an arm and shoulder focus. First, bicep work… Concentration Curls (No-Momentum): 3 sets of 8 reps @ 35lbs. Spider Curls (No-Momentum): Not a very good place to do this on the gym’s preacher curl station due to the way it’s designed, but got away with

Exercise Log 6.11.14 (Bench Press & Deadlift Day, No Cardio)

Alright day two of the 5th cycle. Learning high intensity principles and applying them to Bench Press & Deadlift day. Going to keep this log short, just a summary, but it was a fantastic workout. Again, since I am allowing shoulders to recouperate I am focused on isolation work for my chest and pressing motions,

Exercise Log 6.10.14 (Deadlift & Front Squat Day, No Cardio)

Alright, another Deadlift/Front Squat day begins cycle 5, a higher intensity training cycle. For this cycle I’ll be focused on applying some of the high intensity principles to make the reps mean more. Some of that will be slowing the cadence, some of that will be pausing the reps and some of that will be

Exercise Log 6.8.14 (Dev Day, No Cardio)

Today was dev day and I had a certain window to work with for a good workout. One problem about my plan is the deadlifts tend to happen in workouts close to one another and I care a lot about developing that as a lift, so I decided to ditch my planned dev day workout.

Exercise Log 6.3.14 (Bench Press & Deadlift Day)

Another quick log this was Bench Press/Deadlift day. Did these at my old gym, LA Fitness, out of convience. Iso-Lateral Chest Press: Using this to replace the bench press.
