    Hitting the gym before a date is the combination of the world's two greatest gifts to men.. weights and women.

    Good luck on your date, I know you don't need luck in the gym.

    So yesterday (saturday) I worked my arms, but didn't get to post about it, so here it is:

    ARMS!

    Tri Pulldown w/ rope: (warmup 75x12, 75x10, 90x6, 120x3, 135x1) 165x6, 165x6 (PR), 165x4

    Overhead DB raise: 70x6, 80x6, 80x6 (PR)

    Skull Crusher: 80x6, 80x6

    BB Curl: 90x6, 90x6 (I think this is what's killing my forearms)

    Incline Hammer: 45x6 (3 sets)

    Drag Curl: 70x8, 70x8, 70x10 (PR)


    As BS and LQ suggested, I worked the tri's first, felt great! I think the BB Curls is what was causing my forearms to ache last week. As soon as I started the move, they flared up and I had to stop at 2 sets because of the pain. For the rest of the workout they were sore... I think I'll use the EZ bar next time.

    If I can wake up early enough tomorrow, I'll take some more measurements and weigh myself. Have a good one everybody!

    They're like normal barbell curls, except you're using an overhand grip on the bar. They give a great burn in your bicep, kinda like doing 21's, I don't do them on every arm day, but I like them.

    I've just got time for a quick weight measurement, and I'm at 200 lbs! This is day 17 I think, and that's down 5 lbs overall. Now I'm extra motivated to break the 200 mark, let's see how low I am by the end of the week! I'm really pleased with Red Acid, it seems to be doing everything it's claimed!

    Ok, today's heat was just rediculous!! With the humidity, today's high was 48 DEGREES CELCIUS!!! Why?? How???? All day I've been sweating my ass off, and I'm just sitting around!! I've been drinking tons of water, but I'm still feeling pretty drained from this heat. I worked my back tonight, and I just didn't have the same energy I've been feeling lately. Everything was lagging it seemed. No PR's, just matched my weights from the week before.

    Lat pulldown: (warmup 105x12, 105x10, 120x6, 135x3, 165x1) 190x6, 190x6, 190x5

    Pullups: BWx3, BWx3, BWx2 (not so great, but I'd never done these before)

    Deadlifts: 225x2, 275x6, 275x6, 275x4

    Cable Row: 135x6, 160x6, 160x6

    Leg raises: 15x2

    Various ab crunches for about 8-10 minutes

    I wasn't too crazy about the back excercises, it just didn't feel too strong IMO. The ab workout was good though, I'll be feeling that tomorrow.

    Shoulders & Traps Day!!

    Arnold Press: (warmup: 40x10, 40x10, 50x6, 55x3) 60x6 (PR), 60x6 (PR), 60x4

    DB Lateral Raise: 30x6, 35x4, 35x4 (PR)

    Seated Bent-over Lateral Raise: 35x6 (PR), 35x6 (PR)

    BB Shrug: 225x2, 285x6 (PR), 285x6, 285x5

    Upright Rows: 100x6 (PR), 100x6 (PR)

    After this I did some ab work to finish things off. Felt pretty good... my left shoulder was a little tender, but it didn't seem to affect my ROM or strength.

    Chest Day!! This actually happened yesterday... Aug 6th.

    DB Bench: (warmup 40x12, 40x10, 50x6, 60x3, 70x1) 80x6, 80x6, 80x5

    DB Incline: 70x6, 70x6

    Dips: BWx6, BWx8, BWx8 (PR)

    Straight-Arm Pullover: 50x6, 60x6, 60x6

    I wasn't feeling super strong, probably the result of poor sleep. Today is a rest day since the gym is closed because of the holiday. Hope everyone's having a good day!!

    Leg day!! I feel like I didn't have the best diet today, so my energy wasn't as great as it has been recently. Just because of how my workday went, I could only get in 3 large meals, rather than 6 smaller meals... ugh. Work gets in the way of everything!!

    Squats: (warmup bar x12, 135x10, 155x6, 185x3, 205x1) 225x6, 235x6 (PR), 235x5

    SLDLs: 155x6, 185x6, 185x6 (PR)

    Leg Extension: 190x6, 210x6 (PR), 215x6 (PR)

    Seated Calf Raise: 190x10, 190x10

    Rotary Calf Machine: 405x12, 405x9

    Besides the low energy, I managed to get a couple PR's in there which felt good. I hadn't done leg extensions in a while, I really didn't like them. The only reason I did them was because the leg press machine was being used by 4 guys. Stupid guys.

    I'm going to share a secret I've found out about Leg Extensions.. they rock! At first I hated them too, but using different rep/set ranges, foot placement, and rep pacing you can break through plateaus like crazy using Leg Extensions.

    For example,

    using a close feet position will really hit those outer quads whereas using a wider position will work the inner quads/thighs. In addition, using superslow negatives really helps with some of the bottom sticking points associated with squats.

    If I could only do one isolation exercise it would probably be leg extensions
