I have no idea what I am doing. Haphazardly training my way to being a Strongman.
 
Welcome to the new log. With Nats being this week, I figured it was time for a new log since I wont be going. I am currently running starting strength for my workouts and doing carb back loading as my diet philosophy. I have been shedding a few pounds a week and my lifts are getting better each workout.



10/30/2012-SS Week 2 Workout A
Squat:
2X5@45
1X5@95
1X3@145
1X2@185
3X5@235
*Squats felt crappy today even though the weight wasnt difficult. My left wrist is not in good shape right now and has been really painful.

Bench:
2X5@45
1X5@95
1X3@115
1X2@145
3X5@165
*Still really easy and still really painful

Deadlift:
1X5@315
1X5@345
*Decided to drop this a touch for now. Should have worked up to my top set better, but there was a dude doing something that resembled deadlifts and already had 6 plates on the bar so I just started rippin and tearin.

Notes: Bodyweight right at 247, not bad after my weekend binge for my birfday. This is the lightest I have consistently been since I did my first cut in 2008. I feel strong, just need some nagging stuff to get better.

Good to be back and lifting again.

10/31/2012 SS week 2 B session

Squats:
2X5@45
1X5@95
1X3@140
1X2@190
3X5@240

Strict Press:
2X5@45
1X5@55
1X3@70
1X2@85
3X5@105

Facepulls:
80X2X8

Notes: Skipped cleans today because wrist is killing me. Pressing with it sucked. I will be really sore tomorrow. I didnt feel too bad until I had foam rolled and then started to warm up for squats. I had the I am already here, might as well do it philosophy and it went well. Squats felt exactly like I expected them to feel. Press was a little tougher than expected due to some sore front delts.

My goal is to be ready for the Olde time strongman challenge at Jakked gym in Montgomery in February.

Coach lefty! Back at it, excellent.

Everything is about building up and then starting over. You're right in the groove. :)

Squats look pretty good. They should bounce up in no time.

Well at least you're consistent :mh: I would probably do they same.

Keep tearing up the iron.
