10/20

Evening Run, not the 4 mile for benchmark B I had planned thats for the next run.

Went back to run #7 as I've been a little behind due to a lot of hours working and doing school work.

This one was a little over 2 miles I think it was just under or possibly just over 2.5 miles, 1 mile was uphill.

14:58

Running is a lot easier now then before though, there is no calf pain at all, stride is much longer and pace is much faster, just need to improve breathing more.

I did Kroc db rows today with 70 and actually got 23 reps each arm, somewhat shocking but I guess I really could have been going heavier all this time.

Yea I hear ya, I'm still unsure as to how form is supposed to be for kroc rows but mine has been breaking down by about 15- 20th rep and i kind of just muscle it up as best i can after that.


10/22

Bench: 45 x 20, 65 x 10, 105 x 5, 130 x 3, 150 x 3, 165 x 8
Dips: 35 x 4 x 10 + another set of 6
DB Press: 45 x 3 x 10
Kroc Rows: 45 x 2 x 10 each arm, 70 x 22 each arm

Mini rant: have been somewhat stressed lately due to work and school, work hours are all over the place morning, mid, night so my workouts are all over the place and because of that and school I've only had time to eat maybe twice a day and sleep has been getting a bit poor.

disclaimer: I'm a bit pissed at a few people this week so forgive me for the bluntness in the following

I was also pissed today because some guy felt he needed to tell me that I should get a spotter if I was going to bench "heavy", this while I was putting 135 on the bar. I swear he kept eye fucking me during my entire time at the gym. I'm getting sick of the egotistical piss ants constantly coming up to me and "giving me advice" because im not 200 lbs and benching 300, these same fuckers don't even squat or deadlift and spend their time doing some retarded tricep pushdown hunched over like they're jerking it in the shower. At least I have a fucking 2.5x bw dl and getting close to a 2x bw squat, hell im close to a bw snatch and I can press my own bw as well, so what if I can't bench 300. Fuck dude, that's almost as annoying as watching the tards at the local cf box dick around and completely fuck up the purpose of the olympic lifts.

I think the form is just "anyhow" That's what I got out of it anyway.

10/23

BS: 45 x 10, 105 x 5, 135 x 5, 170 x 3, 195 x 3, 220 x 10
Back Ext: 5 x 15
Leg Press: 140 x 5 x 10
Situps: 2 x 15, 25 x 3 x 15

So I was wearing my USA Weightlifting shirt, lifting in the Do-wins and a trainder came up to me and asked "Dude, are you a powerlifter?", I just stood there tried not to laugh and ring his neck. It was funny though, I swear im not this angry in person it's just my way of getting steam out.

I'm going for a drive on sunday into the mountains to enjoy the scenery to get the stress of society out.

10/26

Press: 45 x 10, 75 x 5, 100 x 5, 115 x 3, 130 x 5
Dips: 35 x 5 x 10
Chins: 25 x 8, 5, 4

Was not happy with this today, should have been able to knock out 8 or 10 reps. But I did not get much sleep this weekend or food and I am just now getting to my first meal today because the day has been a huge rush and I felt very rushed during my workout as well.

10/27

DL: 115 x 6, 155 x 5, 195 x 5, 245 x 5, 275 x 3, 310 x 3
RDL: 145 x 3 x 8
Rack Pulls: 185 x 8, 225 x 6

Not sure if I did the Rack pulls right, just wanted to try it out. Weight felt light despite the heaviness of the DL's today.

I guess I am happy with today's performance, I got enough sleep and actually got to eat more than 2 meals today so far. All of my DL's for the last two weeks have been overhand grip so I know my grip is getting much better which has been an issue for me forever.

by the way, I got invited to a small gym that just opened up that O-lifting focused tomorrow.. they follow the CA wod.

Weight was 154 this morning and I've definitely lost size but you got to trade things to focus on priorities. I guess I'll just never really "look" big unless im over 180lbs so I got to accept that, oh well. 5/3/1 has been good so far though and though I'll likely never look big i'll go ahead and take being strong over size anyday.

10/28

Muscle SN: 95 x 3, 115 x 3, 135 x 3
Clean & Jerk: 135 x 2 x 2, 155 x 2 x 2
Front Squat: 135 x 4, 185 x 3, 205 x 2

More or less went by feel, based off the CA wod today at a pretty cool place, nice to finally train around people who are into Olifting, makes a difference.
