BigJosh's Holid-A-y/B workout aka "I will grow a beard and smash weight"
The first workout went well.
Deadlift 365 3x3
T-bar rows 135x8,8,8
db incline bench 70x8,8,8
db curls 40x8,8,6
Decline bench crunches bwx15,15,14
Overall Workout Grade: A
Notes: It was really nice to do some different exercises. 3+ months of madcow had began to get stale.
I didn't warm up enough for the deads. My back is a bit sore, but it's dull and is muscular. It will be fine.
OHP was done standing with a barbell
T-bar rows were fun! I don't know the last time I used these. It's been a few years. It was so fun just to do something different.
Samething with db incline, it was fun to do a different lift at different rep ranges.
I'm looking forward to the next workout. I'm going to have fun with this routine and not be so by the book for a couple months. I'll start an official log sometime this weekend.
Db lateral raises

Overall Workout Grade: B
This was a good workout. However, the change in volume between this and Madcow was kind of a "culture shock". The straight sets really ratchet up the intensity, not to mention the added volume of exercises and reps. It was a kick in the ass.
The squat went well.
The bench really put me in my place. On the 22nd of October I smashed 290x3 with relatively easy. Not sure what the hell happened here, but I was hitting no where near that. I figured that with the hit and miss working out over the last 3 weeks and the added volume some lifts would be a bit down, but I really didn't expect my bench to take that much of a hit. Maybe things will improve once my nerves adapt.
It's been a long while since I did DB rows. Very fun.
I hit a wall on my 3rd set of CGBP. Caught me a bit off guard, I must admit. I guess I'm still adapting to the change in my workout. I guess I can only improve from here.
Overall I enjoyed this session and am looking forward to seeing how things go.
New routine looks like a good challenge. Nice work.
Nice work so far BigJosh
And I hope to have the starting beard pictures up sometime soon.
Smash it. I need to get my pic up as well.
November is official beard month, so I feel obligated to participate. I'm going to grow mine until christmas or my finance makes me shave it, which ever comes first.
Smash weight man!!!
Looking good, Josh! Bench will be back up there in no time, I bet.
As for the beard, my money is on the fiance. Good Luck! :)
I think your money is probably in the right place!!!!!!!!:toilet:
She's already dropping hints about how much she likes my face when it is smooth.
