Warmup (45x5x2) (95x5x1)
105x5
125x5
140x12 - Yes, 12. I could've done a couple more, but I had no spotter. Regardless it is a rep record at any weight for me. I rested a good fat minute between sets, maybe more. As things get heavier, I realize the need for more rest. I tried to explode every rep.

That is what I like to see. Everything is looking good, assistance is looking good as well. Keep at it big V and you will soon reap the rewards for your labor. = =

There is something magical about 10 reps sets on the bench. Once I cross it, soreness follows. Looking good Big V.

Thank you, gentlemen. I know it's early in the journey, but it's good to know that I'm on the right track according to some. Right now though, my body is screaming for a deload...after two workouts. I shudder to think of what I'll feel like as I get deep into my third or fourth cycle. On the other hand, I've been pretty much "off" for the past three weeks, except for some testing. Maybe I'm just experiencing some rustiness.

That's right. I knew it was one of you guys. I'm sorry if I intruded. If I ever get to Big Lake I won't go out of my way to look you up...unless, of course, there's an invitation, and some extra room on your grill. I can bring cigars and congac. If I ever get to Big Lake.

Anyway, thanks for chiming in. I appreciate any and all input.

Thank you, jwood. Repping out on bench (or any other exercise) is not something I have done in a while. I can see BTB's point though. I'm glad this format allows it. Perhaps later, during a different program, I'll do more high rep work.

What do you smoke? A few years ago, my brother was dating a girl who spent a January Term at college studying in Cuba. For some reason, she was allowed to bring back a certain amount of cigars. I was able to get my hands on a genuine Havana Cohiba. I saved it for a very special occasion. It was like puffing on a cloud.

Good, that's what I'm after.

Tuesday, 2/16/09

I walked that fine line between the pain of discipline and the pain of regret tonight. It dawned on me AFTER my workout that the Wendler 5/3/1 deadlift workout will NEVER get any easier. I was haunted by thoughts of leaving too much in the tank - of leaving ANYTHING in the tank. I repped out on deads satisfied with my efort, until I unstrapped myself from the bar. "Did I have another rep - two reps?" "Was that really all I could give?" I was both satisfied and sickened with my effort. I'll never get this workout back.

Deadlift
Warmup (135x5 185x3)
215x5
250x5
280x10

Close Parallel Grip Pulldown
150x9
150x7
150x5 - I'm wondering if I didn't overestimate the weight. I was pulling more with my arms than my back. I think I may drop weight next time. Anyone with thoughts?

T-Bar Row
90x8x2
90x6 - Same as above. My back might benefit from using lighter weight.

Good Mornings
95x12x2

Machine Crunches
65x20x2
65x11

I was completely fatigued afterwards, so much so that I hardly had the strength to go to the supermarket and pick up Pop-Tarts ($1.09/box). At that price I can afford to try the Cinnamon Roll variety.

The workout took me 45 minutes, which kind of blows my time limit out of the water. A couple of things to consider though, 1) I had to take a potty break (number one) between a couple of DL sets; and 2) I had to wait for the T-Bar aparatus while my "very good friend" was standing on the platform talking on his cell. Both breaks cost me about three minutes. Not too bad. I can live with it. If I have to chop anything from this workout, I think I'll chop GM's, as I already do SLDL's on squat day. We'll see how it goes.

Good question. I've got other things to do. By necessity I have to lift in the evenings, after dinner. After I lift it takes me a while to "come down." It interferes with my beauty sleep. Nothing is set in stone though, I just don't want to live at the gym. It goes like this: lift, protein shake, internet, shower, quick bite to eat, TV, bed. As it goes, I don't get to bed until 11:00 (on a good night), tonight it'll be closer to midnight or later. I wish things could be different, but they aren't.

I would also add that there is the matter of intensity (amount of work over a period of time). I have no problem in taking my time on the major lifts, but the rest of the workout I would like to try HIT style as much as possible. 40 - 45 minutes is about all my tired old body and feeble old mind can take.

Looking good, I wish I could get in and out of the gym in 1 hour normally the shortest workouts end up being 2 hours. Had to miss a gym day today because of school assignments I forgot were do. Anyhow If I am going to rant any more, might as well put it in my rant log.

KEEP SMASHING ON Big V!
