Nah, the college years were hurtin, dude. So were the Ms. Bliss eps. Though technically they werent even Saved by the Bell. They were "Good Morning Miss Bliss". Then later when they were shown as re-runs they were branded as Saved by the Bell.
The pressing really is looking good. That 200 is yours, man.
Impressed with Mom dukes! That's some good stuff there.
I'm not familiar with the Greyskull or the guys there. Glad you're posting the link, because I was going to ask. So is Greyskull one specific gym, or do they have gyms all over the country?
Thanks Sking. I'm pretty confident I'll hit that press Friday.
Greyskull is just one gym, located just south of Philadelphia about a half hour from where I live. The owner, John Sheaffer, used to have a nutrition Q&A here on SS.com and then branched off and started Strengthvillain.com. I've become pretty friendly withJohn and work out down there whenever I get a chance.
They do podcasts every few weeks for the strengtvillain site and he asked me and my buddy Coys to be on this one. The podcasts are partly answering training questions from his forum and partly just bullshitting. I contributed heavily to the bullshitting. He also had Tyler Minton on this one, who is a pro MMA fighter, so there is a lot of good discussion of his training methods, which is probably a lot more interesting to most people than hearing me talk nonsense.
You have to admit that tall Screech is kinda creepy. But I'll concede that at least they didn't bring back ALL the characters.

Now that is some impressive useless knowledge.

This was a pretty interesting workout. I have been pretty sick with a head cold since Monday night. I have been pounding Dayquil and Nightquil but it didn't really work. All day yesterday I was 50-50 about whether or not I should work out. I HATE missing workouts, but I also didn't want to extend my sickness time by draining my body. In the end, I decided to go for it.
Bench Press was rough. I should have gotten 5 or even 6 reps with 275. Instead I struggled to a rough 4. Then on the backoff set I got 6 with 250 after getting 8 with it last week. I mighta had 7, but didn't even attempt it (rare for me, I always go to failure). I think the struggle on the bench and the fact that the sickness probably had me legitimately weak really got in my head.
On deadlifts my warmups felt a little tougher than normal but nothing crazy. I finally got to my workset and just flat out quit after the first rep. I went to pull the 2nd, and it was hard, and I was weak, and I quit. I stood up and said "I've got nothin" to my mom (who I was working out with) and walked away. But then I got all mad at myself for quitting and figured I couldn't do that. So I took a pretty short rest (about 3 minutes) and attempted it again. It still really sucked and I still felt weak, but I basically just wasn't a pussy the second time around and I got 4 reps. I legit failed the 5th rep, which is fine. At least I tried it.
So 350 would have been a PR weight for a set of 5 had I actually done a set of 5. But I didn't, so no PR. But at least I feel glad I got the work in on a night where I didn't feel good at all. I am still going to go up by 5 pounds for Monday's deadlift workout for 355. I am very confident that I will have no problem with it assuming I am feeling better. I think I will be as I already feel better today than I have the last few days.
Next up is my 200 pound press attempt Friday, which should definitely be over bodyweight since I'll be working out and weighing myself in the morning instead of at night like usual.
Then after the Friday morning workout, I'll get my wig busted then head to Chickies and Petes for an all day March Madness drink and eat fest. I can't fucking wait. Its my favorite non-vacation day every year. $40 for all you can eat and drink from 12-4. I'd easily get my moneys worth just from the drinking, and when you throw in Chickies bangin food on top of it, its just out of control. Afterwards, we will head to the Deaner, then get kicked out of the Deaner. Anne the bartender hates us on that day.
Alright dude, I'm tracking your new pressing program. Post away!
yeah, fuck. sorry. i havent been updating. i will catch up on the past few workouts now.
I haven't logged my last few workouts so I'll catch up now. Might not be 100% accurate on some stuff cuz im doing it off the top of my head, but whatever.

45 (242.4) x 8

Bench Press- 245x5x3
Standing Curls- 45s x 8
40s x 9
Deadlifts- 355x3 (f) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Arp6h...eature=channel
Thursday Night 3/22/12
Weighted Chins- 52.5 (250.3 total) x 5 x 3
Abs- 1:00 plank, :30 side-side touches, 1:00 plank, :30 side-sidetouches.
(1 minute rest between each)
So I am on the new program now. Upper body will rotate through the following 4 days: 3x5 bench, 3x5 press and chin, "intensity" bench, "intensity" press and "intensity" chin.
The first bench weight was very conservative for 3x5. I will make 5 pound jumps for a few workouts there. Eventually I will get to a point where I am with the press and chins where I might not even up the weight every 3x5 workout. "intensity" days are where my true progress will be measured, not the 3x5 days.
I will also be curling and deadlifting on every bench day and doing some ab work on every press and chin day.
Deadlifts are obviously getting tough as I move up. My new rule is going to be that I attempt 5 reps each workout, but continue to increase weight as long as I get 3. If I fail to get 3 reps with a weight, I will consider a new plan of attack on those.
I also plan on cutting back on drinking drastically, if not totally, going forward. This should make weight gain and performance in the gym much easier. Im excited about that.
How have I not discovered this log before? I'm in for random references to 90's tv and musings on hiphop. Glad I'm not the only one who desperately stops N*ggas in Paris as soon as Kanye starts. It's impossibly bad.
I wish he would just make beats for Jay - greatest of all time.
How's your knee doing? Some squatting coming up?
My Deadlift on Tuesday looked exactly the same. Exact same reps and weight. Later, I thought about doing another triple or a double... Any thought of that?
I'm with you-- I'm going for 3-6 reps. I'm going to take a 5 pound jump but also alternate with haltings....
