SO's 2012 log
Sup MAB! Trying to get back to the gym over my winter break from school and keep it going when I get back. I've noticed when I'm not logging on here that I have way less motivation so my biggest goal for 2012 is to log workouts here 3x a week. Here's my tentative plan for the workout:

Day 1: Legs
Squat (Main lift)
Good Morning
Leg Press
Barbell Step-up

Day 2: Push
Bench Press (Main lift)
Military Press
Close Grip Bench

Day 3: Pull
Deadlift (Main lift)
DB Row

All main lifts will start at 2x10 and over the course of 10-12 weeks I'll drop the reps and increase the weight. In the first few weeks assistance work will be 3x8-10, but as the main lifts get heavier I might drop the assistance work to 2 sets.

Any thoughts/criticisms are welcome and here's to a great new year!

Looks good SO! Glad to have you back.

The thing that would kill me is doing RDLs after deadlifts, my body would say no. I would think about front squats there. but if that works for you, go for it

Strkout! So good to have you back.

I've tried RDLs after deads and it was pretty intense. Jeremy suggested one alternative. I would also add since it's back-focused you could toss in pullups as well. Either way it's good.

First workout of the new year!
Found a workout steve posted on M&S which i like better than the one I posted so I'm using that instead

105x9/9/7 25 total

85x9/8/8 25 total

DB Rows-
35x9/8/8 25 total

was gonna do curls and sit-ups after this but was way too wiped out. Way out of shape :( it'll come back quickly though

Good training! Smash it in 2012!

Glad to see you didn't push yourself too much. A couple weeks you'll be full speed again.

Military Press-

20 lbs assistance x8/6/6

Barbell Calf Raises

another easy break-in session, weights felt harder than I would have liked haha but it's just the first week no biggie
