NOTES
Took forever to finish up due to all of the interruptions. I am going to have to stop training at the church. I cherish the alone time, I will need to get back to the Dog House for that quiet.

I am still working on figuring out my weights on some of the accessory work. Aside from that, I am enjoying myself.

Praying about a March 15, 2014 meet. I want a chance to get my feet wet before the fall, but question whether I will be ready.

Also, I need to be more accountable for some kind of conditioning work. Not a treadmill or running guy, still working through this. Input?

Mind was distracted today, but I tried to fight it off and focus on the task at hand.
Squats - Speed definately slowed down by about the 5th or 6th set. Felt good though.

Pause Squats - tougher than I expected, but again, it felt good.

Overall, my legs got some work in and I am pleased to get a session in with minimal interruptions.

NOTES
Two of my children (actually adults now) trained with me. Between the phone call from one of the elders and spotting, this took me longer than I had planned.

Deads - 8 sets of three are more exhausting that you would think.
Rack Pulls - These felt almost wrong they felt so light.
Deficit Deads - I didn't have my 2 x 4's so I used an aerobic step to create the deficit. 4" made a huge difference.
Shrugs - I wanted 3 x 8 but it was not happening today, I could barely grip the bar for 5
Chins - I am pleased with these, I feel as they are really starting to come along. When I can get to 3 sets of 10 consistently, i will begin to work on pullups.
ab work - it was ab work

They both started in the last year or two. My son, a Senior at BAMA, has been lifting for about two years, though recreationally (for abs). My daughter is training to do a competition with me in 2014. She started lifting this past year. Her main issue is she gets a little diet ocd, but her lifts are coming along.

Bench- I am working to get this number up. My goal is to be at or over 200 lbs 1 RM by March.

CGBP - I put my hands inside the knurling on the smooth part. Not as close as I had been doing but closer than a normal bench. Still tough.

Between the Lat Pulldowns and the Chins I felt like this guy.

Good Mornings
3 x 10 x 100

NOTES

This is my second full week of this Cube Boss plan. i am really enjoying it and benefiting from it. My joints and connective tissue feel better and I do not feel like my strength has suffered but grown. Each day, I have walked away with different feelings about the session, but never once feeling as though I didn't accomplish anything. I am looking forward to seeing where this will take me.

Squats - 70% of the 1 RM for at least 8 reps. Done, but last set was just barely.

Front Squats - My FS is so much lower than my BS that I am using my FS percentages. Still, felt great, fire building in the quads.

Pause Squats - 65% of 1 RM and these kicked my butt. First set was me not thinking and looking at my notes. Got the weight where it was supposed to be. Shot for 8 reps, got 5 before form broke. Not a good squat if you are standing on your tippy toes.

Romanian Dead Lifts - Church gym not a good set up for my Poor man's GHR, takes too long when time is tight. Focused on hitting the hammies.

Chins - These are progressing rather well. I hope to be at three sets of ten soon.

Good Mornings - Another hitting of the hamstrings.

Overall a good session. I need to reevaluate my training time so that I am not so rushed. Even on a good day I am looking at about 1 hour 15 minutes from start to finish.

Tomorrow I enter into the Masters classification and begin my quest for a VA State record. I am on a very slow cut to try to get to the 181 weight class, but am not sure that stressing about that is going to help me much. Not too mention that this time of year is not the best to be avoiding foods. Any way, either later today or tomorrow is arms and shoulder work. Some overhead work, bicep blasting and tricep targetting, goal? Great guns!
