Default My Big and Dumb Log

I'm making the move to a new log. Why? Because I am a little beat up, and think it's time to try something a bit new. I've been using the same core workout structure for most of the last 16 months, and want to shake things up a bit.

I will detail my approach a bit later after the kiddies hit the hay. I am calling this training style big and dumb. It's simple, and far from rocket science.

02/16/2010: Shoulders

Workout Time: 50 minutes

Workout Grade: A+

Probably the best shoulder workout I've had in quite some time. My shoulders were still feeling a little beat up from heavy squats 10 (or so) days ago, so I switched to military presses to relieve some of the strain. Great pumps. My shoulders are a pile of rubble right now.

Seated Military Press - 2 minutes between sets
135 x 10
155 x 8
175 x 5
175 x 4
155 x 7
155 x 6
155 x 5
135 x 7
135 x 6
135 x 6

Rear Laterals - 60 seconds rest between sets
30's x 10/10/10/10/10

Seated Military Press
95 x 20

Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me 1500+! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Here's my Big and Dumb approach:

Monday Back
Tuesday Shoulders
Wednesday Crap (Calves-Traps-Biceps)
Thursday OFF
Friday Legs
Saturday Chest + Triceps
Sunday OFF

I will be pretty much sticking to one movement throughout the workout, and finishing with a 5x5 or 5x10 for smaller muscle groups. Workouts will look like:

Back - Deadlift plus 5 sets of secondary back exercise.
Shoulders - Overhead press plus 5 sets of rear laterals.
Legs - Squats/Front Squats plus a 5x5 on Romanian deadlifts.
Chest - Bench plus a 5x5 on CGBP or DB Bench.
CRAP - Whatever I feel like doing.

I am in for this BTB, looks like a solid approach. I like the focus of one big movement a day. I think it will really help your overall strength, and help your compound movements a lot. Great stuff

Thanks Jwood. I have such ADD when it comes to training. And to be honest, I really don't like to do much other than the big lifts any way.
