    All right, I'm back in training so I'll post up some stuff.

    Basically I'm fat, stressed, and out of shape. Things have been not good at home for quite a while now. They aren't much better, but I can't keep going on like this.

    Current Stats:

    Height = 6'1"
    Weight = 256
    Bfat % = 20-22% or so.
    Recent Lifts (within the past couple of months):
    -Raw Bench: 275x5, 315x2
    -Belted Squat: 445x3
    -Dead: I haven't pulled to speak of in months. I think I pulled a 505 off pin 1 pretty easily a few weeks ago. I'm usually good for 500 drunk, so we'll say somewhere between there and 535.
    -Push Press (belted): 225x1

    I also did some hammer curls with the 35's a couple of weeks ago. Reps, yo.

    Where I'll be in the next few months:
    Height = 6'4" (I can dream)
    Weight = 245-250
    Bfat % = 15% or less
    Lifts:
    -Raw Bench: 355 (360 old PR)
    -Shirted Bench: 455 (435 old PR)
    -Belted Squat: 475x1
    -16" Box Squat (Parallel): 455x1 (465x1 old PR)
    -Deadlift: 550x1 (555x1 old PR)
    -Push Press (belted): 275x1 (245x1 old PR)
    -Power Clean and Jerk: 245x1

    I'll also run a mile in 8:30 or less, and I'll come up with some sort of sprint measure soon.

    I obviously just play with the Olympic Lifts.

    I basically just need to get my mobility and fitness back. As I get leaner I tend to get stronger and train better, so that'll help.


    Today was a quick bench only session:

    Dynamic Warm-up

    Flat BB Bench Press: 45x10, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x3 (messed with arch), 255x5, 255x5, 255x5
    -Easy enough. I didn't feel tight on the bench, but the weight was light.


    Other items of interest: Nada.

    How old are you? Growing 3 inches is one hell of a goal in a couple of months considering you don't have any control over it. Otherwise, good shit and good luck.

    Dude, I'm 27. It was a joke.

    Thanks for the good wishes, though.

    Gawd, don't even get me started on that.

    I squatted today, which didn't feel good for some reason. Not that it's felt good lately anyway, all of my joints had sharp, shooting pains. I warmed up well and felt decent during that, so I don't know.

    I cut it short at 365 and foam rolled, which was also painful, but made me feel better.

    I ran yesterday on the treadmill. I don't want to talk about it.


    Thursday: DE Upper Body, 1:45pm
    Weight = N/A

    Dynamic Warm-up

    Flat BB Bench Press: 45x10, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x2x6 (different grips)
    -Not bad. I didn't have my wraps as I trained at the gym I work out of, so my left wrist was a little gimpy.

    Incline DB Bench Press: 100x8, 100x8
    -Controlled negative. Moved to a DC-style pec stretch with the 30's. Ouch.

    Seated BB Overhead Press: 135x10, 135x10
    -I don't usually do this, so these were more for novelty than anything else.

    Close-grip Power Snatches with Standing OH Press: 95x5, 95x5
    -See above. I did a close-grip snatch then an OH press, then down. That was one rep.

    Close-grip Cable Rows: One warm-up set of 15, 4x10 working sets
    -I don't remember the weight, it's different on every stack anyway.

    Cable Scarecrows: 17.5x10, 17.5x10
    -Yep.

    Standing Alternating DB Curls: 45x10, 45x10 -> drop to 25x10
    -I looked like Dave Tate, except smaller, fatter, and prettier.

    After all of this excitement I hit the bike for five miles, level 5. It took just under 19:00 minutes, so I finished out the 19:00. I'm an over-achiever.

    The workout actually felt pretty decent. I haven't done a bodybuilding faggotry workout in a while, so the pump was wicked and stuff.

    Other items of interest: Some really bad news at home. I might have to take a trip soon. This shit keeps coming.

    I see you're not that great at updating this journal either haha. I'll be seeing you and Will here in just a couple of days. I'm expecting to actually witness a workout from you.
