Yeah, me too. I said that I've been on it since mid June, but to be honest, I'd run it for 3 - 4 weeks, then something would come up and I'd miss a week, then another couple of weeks, and the YMCA would do their annual shutdown week. I haven't been able to give it a good long run. After Labor Day though I should be pretty good until the end of the year. I like how I've been feeling (other than legs once every 8 days or so). I like how the mirror looks too, especially the lats. The arms are good and pumped. So it feels like it works. Numbers will tell.

Looking forward to my success? Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence. I shall take it and run.

Thanks for all the well wishes. Things are easier with a cheering section behind you.

Tuesday, 9/1/09

I took today and tomorrow off work. My wife is a school teacher, and she has workshops this week. My kids aren't quite old enough to be home by themselves, so we get to have a couple of Daddy/Daughter Days. Life doesn't get much better.

Shoulders/Tri's

Duration:30 minutes

Working sets listed

Smith Behind the Neck Press (125x10) - Surprisingly easy this time. I'll bump it up 5 or 10.

DB Side Lateral Raise (20x5/3) - Keep the reps deliberate, pausing at the bottom only long enough to kill any momentum.

DB Hammer Grip Front Raise (20x4/1/1)

dc shoulder stretch about 60 sec or so

Smith CGBP (165x10) - Another surprisingly easy set, probably another 5 pounds next time.

Incline Skull Crusher (70x10) - Add a nickel next workout.

Seated BB Extention (60x9/1) - This was fairly difficult, only 5 more pounds next time.

dc tricep stretch 30# about 60 sec. each arm.

My weights were too light on some of these exercises, a problem which, given time, should rectify itself.

Now, if you will excuse me, my wife has been after me to do some cardio

Hopefully it's not taking out the garbage

Regarding your first comment. It's so much harder for me in my 40's not to have some aspect of life try to keep me from the gym for days at a time.

But, you have 4 months of solid training ahead of you before Santa comes.

Glad to hear it.

Sunday night is take out the garbage night for me. I hear things like, "just a reminder, take out the garbage" about 7,000 from sun up to sun down on Sunday.

Thanks guys. Yeah, I get nit picky about details sometimes. It's a bit of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder that I can live with for now. The way I see it though, someday I'm going to be huge. And somebody is going to want to know how I got there. I'm not saying that my current program is all it, but rather a combination of THIS program, plus my NEXT program, in addition to the 2+ years of 5x5 prior to this. And the 20 rep squats. And the Power Factor Training. It all adds up.

I sincerely appreciate everyone who looks at this and chimes in. I am so sorry that I haven't been able to reciprocate yet. I will try to do better, starting today.

Wednesday, 9/2/09

I stayed home with the kids again today. Tomorrow its back to the salt mine.

For today though I got in some actual cardio this afternoon.
Cardio: Walking 25 min.

Tomorrow is legs. I'm going to try to hit the Y right after work. I hate training that time of day.

Cheers,

big val
