knees still want to go in, but easier to keep them straight than before. Anti knee kicking muscles must be getting better :lol:



Great that the knees are staying out easier, like your description of the muscle, much more apt than the official one :D

Had to use the fat bar today, which sucks because it's harder to grip. Not even sure how much it weighs either. I think somewhere between 47 and 50 lbs. I would imagine it would be 49 lbs, so with the screw on collars it would be 50, but I count it the same as the regular bars just to keep loading easier.

Deadlift
1x10@ 135 lbs
1x5@ 195 lbs
1x3@ 220 lbs
1x5@ 245 lbs

grip gave out :( could have got one more at least if I could keep from dropping it. So lame

Front Squat
1x10@ bar
1x5@ 95 lbs
1x5@ 115 lbs
1x5@ 135 lbs
1x3@ 155 lbs

these kind of sucked. The bar kept rolling back on my throat which isn't good. But, pretty happy with 3 at 155 lbs.

Hanging Leg Raise
1x8 + 2 cheating with legs bent
1x10 mostly cheating :oops:

Weighted Ab Machine
2x12@ 60 lbs

superset abs because was tired, hungry, and dripping sweat by that point

Also, the place where I sell all my computer junk got a new 10,000 lbs capacity scale, so I hopped on there to test it out and bodyweight was 200.2 lbs :mrgreen:

Last week I needed a hoodie, a coat, and 2 builder bars to get 200 lbs, so pretty happy about that. Have been on creatine the past 4 or 5 days, so probably water weight, but still exciting.

Last week was deload and not very interesting, so I didn't bother to log it. I did skip lifting yesterday though because I was tired and made the mistake of taking my shoes off when I got home, so never made it back out after that.

Not much money right now, so haven't been keeping up the chinese takeout, pretty sure I lost a few pounds because of it, and feeling weak. I need to get less lazy about making food for sure.

2/28/2012

Squat
1x10@ bar
1x10@ 95 lbs
1x5@ 145 lbs
1x5@ 165 lbs
1x7@ 185 lbs

I could have done more, but didn't stay tight coming out of the bottom on 6th rep and #7 wasn't better, so left it at that

5x10@ 110 lbs

Good fast reps all the way. Some maybe too strong with the barbell jumping up a bit. Knee kicking seems to be under control now.

Leg Curl Machine
5x10@ 95 lbs

I don't like it :P . I've ripped calluses off my hands on this thing 2x and it just feels weird. My forearms push against the short people hand grips and with any less than ~50 lbs assistance i have trouble staying on the damn thing.

I'll probably stick with it for a while though, since lat pull downs seem not to have any carryover at all. I won't know if it works anyway since I'm probably going back down to 175 lbs or so over the next few months and pull up numbers should go up a bit anyway.

3/9/2012

Was a guy in the "dead lift station" (spot by the squat rack with some rubber mats) when I got in, so did some dumbbell deadlifts waiting for him to finish up.

Dumbbell Deadlift
1x5@ 35 lbs
1x5@ 45 lbs
1x3@ 55 lbs
1x1@ 70 lbs

Deadlift fat bar again :x
1x10@ 135 lbs
1x3@ 190 lbs
1x3@ 215 lbs
1x6@ 245 lbs

Front Squat
2x5@ bar
1x5@ 95 lbs
1x5@ 115 lbs

at this point gym closed for a zumba party, which I didn't know about because I didn't read the sign that said "ZUMBA PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!."

On a side note, been waffling on this fat loss nonsense quite a bit. I probably should go through with it, but I really don't want to. 175 lbs (79 kg) is really skinny, and skinny is the opposite of good.

dude why not concentrate on improving conditioning rather than fat loss specifically? Seems to me it would be more congruent with your Strongman goal. Just an idea :)

Fat loss would probably be a bi product of conditioning of course but conditioning goals might be more fun

The main issue is with the end result of being skinny. I don't want to be skinny. But, if I just keep gaining weight till I hit 140 kg I'll have to deal with tons of excess fat as a 300 lb tub of lard. Right now it's only ~15 lbs and I'm reasonably fit, so it won't be too difficult. I think I've decided I have to just suck it up and get skinny. Have been reading about this tons, and it seems to be the best option right now.

Will definitely be focusing on conditioning rather than diet though. Mostly just cut out the junk and bump protein up a bit, then the rest will be getting lungs up to snuff and see what happens.



^^this place is like a mile from my house, so maybe i'll do that :D

1x5@ 135 lbs
1x5@ 165 lbs
1x3@ 185 lbs
1x1@ 210 lbs
1x1@ 235 lbs PB :mrgreen:

Hit a sticking point as I was coming back past parallel and just as I started to think I might not make it, I broke past and the bar shot up. I thought about trying for 250 lbs for a good 5 minutes before I decided against it. I'd almost definitely miss it, and if I did make it form would have been shit.

Hanging Leg Raise
1x12
1x8 +2 cheating
1x7 +3 cheating

was starving at this point so went home.

Right quad is cramping just now, but stretching is helping with that. I think it's because I haven't been drinking enough water the past few days. Spent most of sunday out in the sun and forgot to bring water :oops:
