Daily Training 2/17/17

Trying to get more aggressive with the weights on deadlifts. My target weight for today was 170 with drop downs, but I decided to stop being a bitch and just break into the 400lb mark.

Airbike: 5 minutes

Deadlift: 20(2×6), 70×5, 100×3, 120×2, 140×1, 160×1, 182×5, 170×5, 160×5

Hamstring Curl Machine: “6”(3×10)

LM Oar Row: 40(3×10)

Cable Lat pulldown: 165lbs(3×8)

BB French Curl: 20(3×10) Paired w/Side Bend 20(3×8)


The deadlifts were hard. I’m going to be sore tomorrow. I’ll need to be able to pull around 210ish for 5 if I have any hopes of hitting 250 for a single, which is my mid term goal.

Daily Training 2/12/17

I need to start updating my log again regularly. Training has been going quite well, but I’ve been keeping all my notes on paper rather than here. Need to do both! I hit a Sunday workout yesterday because I didn’t know if I’d be making the trip down to the gym today in the storm, but the weather was actually worse yesterday than it was today.

BTN Jerk: 20(2×5), 60×2, 80×1, 90×1, 100×1, 110(4×1). Felt light, but was slow.

Back Squat: 70×3, 100×3, 120×2, 130×1, 140(3×5). Felt harder than expected, and my mid back is aggravated today.

LM Split Press Contralateral: 35(3×10). Easy.

Band Shoulder External Rotation Contralateral: 5lb(4×10) paired w/Cable Tricep Pushdown Bilateral 60lbs(4×10)

Dynamic Plank: 3×8 paired w/Box Jump 16″(3×8). The box jumps were actually hard. I guess that’s cuz I’m still fat.

Hitting a pulling workout later today.

Daily Training 1/2/17

First workout of the new year! Not that that means anything.

Airbike: 5 min

BTN Jerk: 20(2×3), 40×3, 50×2, 60×2, 70×1, 80(4×3). Had some decent reps in there, but 80 felt heavy toward the end and it got sloppy. This was a 10kg increase from last week, so I’ll bring it down to 5kg increase on the next workout.

LM Lumberjack Squat: 55(4×10). These had my heart pounding.

BB Military Press: 30(3×12), 30×9, 30×3. 43kg was my target weight for the first two weeks, and for two weeks I’ve failed to make all my sets and reps at that weight. Given that I’m fighting a shoulder impingement, I decided to go very light, and at least make all my reps. Only problem is, even with only 30kg I couldn’t make all my damn reps! Failed on my last set and had to break it up. Sucks. Shoulder still hurt too.

DB Lateral Shoulder Raise/Cable Tricep Pushdown bilateral: 15lb(4×10)/55lb(4×10). Shoulder raises felt easy, triceps were challening.

Been skipping my abs and tabata since both my hernia, and heart palpitations have been bothering me.
