Day 2:

What a humbling day.
First off, I screwed up by squatting and deadlifting a bit at the end.
Squatted 3x5: 345lbs
Deadlifted 1x5: 335lbs

Then I went on to the seated dumbbell press. I never knew my shoulders were so weak.
4x6: 60, 55, 50, 45lbs. Just kept sinking...

Barbell upright rows 3x8:
115, 95, 95lbs.

EZ Curl 3x8:
70lbs.


Been a while since I felt so weak. I actually enjoyed the feeling because it helped me get things in perspective. I know where the ground it and I just have to work on up.

On to the next. Let's get to work.

I read a type-o, you mean after Squatting & Dead-lifting in the same day you were graces with the iron god's blessing of strength and humility!

Haha yeah. I'm just trying to stick to Mark's program.
He specifically said do not tinker with this routine, but I still feel that I could do much more afterwards.

I don't know. I'll have to learn to relax and rest.
On the bright side, someone bought me a pair of Vibrams as a gift.
Looks like rubber socks. Not sure what to do with them. I'll see how they effect my lifts.

DAY 3:
Rest day.

Never heard of Vibrams.

Finally 15 posts. I'm posting links of all the days on the first page so people don't have to sift through all the comments.

Hopefully this makes it easier for folks to keep track.
At least, those who are interested!

Thanks guys for the words!

Pretty cool Idea. I wish forums had more blog influenced posting my self. I just switch to hybrid mode on the viewing panel, but thats a good idea.

I never though about switching to that way.
Hm, that's a smart idea.

Day 4:

BB Row 4x8: 135, 145, 155, 165lbs
Heavy Low Pulleys 4x8: 100, 120, 140, 140lbs
Shrugs: 75lbs DB's - Messed up cause I just found out it was supposed to be power shrugs... oh well.

20 minute cool down afterward. Is it okay that these workouts don't exhaust me?
I feel like I could do so much more.
Maybe I need to learn to relax.

Day 5:

Just a horrible day. Exhausted and being forced to workout late just drained my workout.

Squats 4x6: 225, 275, 295, 295
So disappointing. I know I could've done better.

Romanian Deadlifts 3x8: 135, 225, 225
Never tried these before. Don't even know if my form was on point.

Leg raises 2x20
Took an easy ab workout just to get out and study for my midterms.

Overall, disappointed in myself.
Now to study.

Late post up.

Day 6:
Bench 4x6: 135, 135, 155, 175lbs
I think I got weaker. Gonna have to fix that.

Incline DB Press 3x8: 50, 60, 65lbs

BW Dips 3x8

Day 7: REST

Day 8:
Seated DB Press 4x6: 50, 50, 55, 55lbs

Upright Rows 3x8: 115lbs

EZ Bar Curls 3x8: 70lbs


I'm really liking the upper body days because I know my upper body is weak and has lagged far behind my legs/back.

I don't care if I fail a rep or whatever. I just want to see progress.
Overall, these past days were great!
