Default Barbells & Dumbbells in my garage.

Previous log was here: http://muscleandbrawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16535

I will do my best to keep posting and keep this interesting with some video clips via YouTube. My previous log has some videos in it. After reading the article Steve posted about using barbells and dumbbells for 70% of you workout I am inspired to start up a new training log.
The idea of barbells and dumbbells for 70% of the workout is in line with my training style. I lift in my garage with a half rack for safety, Legend Fitness-outstanding quality, using free weights and adjustable spin lock dumbbells. I have a 45 degree back extension, a chin up bar on top of Legend Fitness half rack, and a wall mounted dip station. That is all I can fit in my 10x23 single car garage. It is tight but very efficiently layed out to maximize the space.
I will lift 3 days a week using the upper body and lower body workouts from the article.
Thanks for looking in.

I did the first upper body workout last night. From start to finish, with minimal distractions, I finished up in less than 75 minutes. Just the right amount of time I like to spend lifting.

Barbell bench press: 230lbs x 10, 8, 6, 6 - rep goal met. +5lbs

Dumbbell row: 50lbs x 10, 15, 15 - rep goal met. +5lbs

Seated db OHP: 50lbs x 10, 8, 7 - rep goal not met.

Lying triceps extension: 60lbs x 10, 10, 10 - rep goal met. +5lbs

EZ bar curls: 55lbs x 10, 10, 10 - rep goal met. +5lbs.

Good workout. There is a potential for 2 supersets in this workout to up the intensity and decrease the workout time. If necessary. No video clips tonight.

Good work Jude!

Looks like you killed it hitting almost all rep goals

Last night was the second lower body workout. Deadlifts!

Deadlift: ramped up to 330lbs x 5
Harness front squats: 135lbs x 8 x 4 - target reps met.
Lunges: forget it! Legs were done!
Calf raise: 50lbs x 15 x 2
Leg raises: BE x 9 x 2

I bought this harness off of eBay. It helps those of us who don't have the shoulder flexibility to do proper front squats. It also lets you do Zercher squats with it. There are 3 rack positions on the harness. The upper position is for front squats. The bottom position is for Zercher squats. I have no idea what the middle position is for.
