Monday, May, 20th...

Powertec Machine Squats 3x6 (+5lbs)
Warm Up- 90x10
300x6, 300x6, 300x6

I finally hit 300lbs and boy did it feel heavy. My quads for sure got a great workout and I hit them hard. Not much to say.

Powertec Machine Hamstring Curls 2x8 (+2.5lbs)
35x8/8, 35x8/8

This workout is becoming one of my favorites for my hamstrings. I can feel each hamstring individually working and it feels great. Upping the weight 2.5lbs was a little bit of a grind but nothing to failure and I felt overall strong on these.

Dumbbell Rows 4x6 (+2.5lbs)
85x6/6, 85x6/6, 85x6/6, 85x6/6

I decided to do dumbbell rows instead of barbell rows today. I just was in the mood to do these and this was such a good lat workout. It was a grind to get in all my reps on my left arm but my right arm felt very strong. I haven't done these since I switched routines and I was only doing 2 sets of 8 reps and today I managed to increase the weight 2.5lbs since I last did these and did 2 more sets but for 6 reps a piece obviously. I may do these again next time or switch back and forth between barbell rows.

Powertec Machine Preacher Curls 2x10 (+2.5lbs, +4reps)
52.5x12, 52.5x12

My first set of these I felt strong and was thinking I should have gone up 5lbs but on my last set I was really starting to feel the burn around the 5th rep and I managed to crank out all my goal of 10 reps plus 2 more reps. I'm glad I switched to this movement because it feels very fresh and my biceps are getting hit great and differently it seems.

Overall:

It was a late workout today but I got it in and I feel really good. It was a hard workout and I'm sweating pretty bad and it doesn't help of how hot it is and me working out in my garage. I need to get a big fan for when summer sets in or else I'm going to be soaked lol. Not much else to say, have a great night everybody!

Thanks!

Saturday, May, 25th...

Powertec Machine Incline Bench Press (+2.5lbs, +1rep)
Warm Up- 90x20, 180x7
265x6, 265x6, 265x7

I felt strong on these and was able to increase the weight and managed an extra rep too.

Powertec Machine Shoulder Press (+2.5lbs)
212.5x6, 212.5x6, 212.5x6

I again felt strong on these and just keep managing to increase the weight each time I do these. Very pleased.

Flat Dumbbell Flies (+2.5lbs)
37.5x10, 37.5x10, 37.5x10

I wasn't able to get 12reps on each set but I still increased the weight and managed to get 10reps for each set. I'll try for 12reps next time.

Standing E-Z Barbell Extensions
65x10, 65x10

I wanted another triceps isolation to rotate in and I choose this one. I really like this movement and was sore the following day. I wasn't sure how much weight to use but I think I picked the perfect weight for me to handle. It was very challenging but not to failure.

Overall:

This was a good workout I had this day and very happy I keep progressing despite how spread out my workouts continue to be.

Thursday, May, 30th...

RDL Deadlifts 2-3x6 (+10lbs)
Warm Up- 135x10
245x6, 245x6

I felt worked after 2 sets and felt it was enough. I managed to increase the weight by 10lbs and as well as add 1 rep to each set. Very happy with this and I'm feeling very strong on these.

Weighted Chin Ups 3x8
20x8, 22.5x8, 22.5x8

I finally added these in and they will be staying. I wasn't sure which weight to start with since it's been awhile since I've done these. My form on these were very good and smooth. Not much problem with the weight so I'll be increasing it next time.

Powertec Machine One Arm Rows 2x10-12
90x10/10, 90x10/10

I wanted to add another back movement into this workout so I decided to add this one in this workout. These were pretty challenging but nothing to failure. This movement will also be staying in this workout.

Powertec Machine Preacher Curls 2x10 (+2.5lbs, +4reps)
55x12, 55x12

I managed to increase the weight 2.5lbs as well as add 4 extra reps in total. I'm really feeling it in my biceps with this movement and again happy that I have added this in the mix.

Overall:

This workout was done first thing when I woke up and it's been awhile since I did that. I was on an empty stomach and felt strong and full of energy. I will more than likely be working out in the mornings when I can for now on as a change of pace because I enjoyed it. It has again been a few days since I worked out but I'm not skipping no days in the rotation but they are just spread out. I will be getting this in check because I was working a good bit lately and now I'm off for a little while. I made some changes to my workout routine as well which you will be seeing in the next couple days when I log my routine. Todays changes were adding another back movement and getting rid of the leg isolation movement. I feel my legs get hit enough with just what I'm doing right now but my back could use extra work.

Very pleased with today though. Hopefully everybody had a great memorial weekend/day. Have a goodnight everyone!

Thanks.

Thanks. I continue to slowly make progress even though my schedule has been all over the place.

Friday, May, 31st...

Powertec Machine Flat Bench Press 3x5
Warm Up- 90x25, 180x7
300x5, 300x6, 300x7

Powertec Machine Shoulder Press 3x6 (+)
215x6, 215x5, 215x4

Flat Bench Dumbbell Flies 3x8-12 (+)
37.5x12, 37.5x12, 37.5x12

Triceps Pushdowns 2x10 (+)
100x10, 100x11

Overall:

It was a pretty good workout. I progressed in most movements that day. I cannot use my dumbbells no longer for benching because my good dumbbells that I was using the lock is stuck and the allen wrench I have for it doesn't work. The wrench just spends and I have no clue how to undo it so I'm not only out a dumbbell but I'm out the weights that are stuck on it. So if anybody has any tips for me to get it lose please let me know.

Thanks.

Friday, June, 7th...

Powertec Machine Incline Bench Press 3x6 (+2.5lbs)
Warm Up- 90x20, 180x7
267.5x6, 267.5x6, 267.5x6

Powertec Machine Reverse Grip Rows 3x8
180x8, 180x8, 180x8

Powertec Machine Shrugs 3x12-15
200x15, 200x15, 200x15

One Arm Dumbbell Rows 3x6 (+2.5lbs)
87.5x6/6, 87.5x6/6, 87.5x6/6

Dumbbell Rotating Lateral Raises 3x8-12
12.5x8, 12.5x8, 12.5x8

Overall:

I really enjoyed this workout. I'm not going to stick with reverse grip rows those were just there that day because I was "in the zone" and felt like adding them. The main lift is obviously my dumbbell rows. I did lateral raises for the first time in a while and really felt the burn with them. I may have been able to increase the weight and reps with them but trying to just be strict with them. Also the shrugs were a nice addition that I will be staying with in this workout.

Thanks.

Sunday, June, 9th...

Powertec Machine Squats 2-3x6 (+2.5lbs)
Warm Up- 90x10
300x6, 302.5x6

Powertec Machine Calve Raises 3x10-15
302.5x12, 302.5x12, 302.5x12

Powertec Machine One Leg Hamstring Curls 2x10-12
30x10/10, 30x10/10

Powertec Machine Preacher Curls 2x10 (+2.5lbs, +4reps)
57.5x12, 57.5x12

Powertec Machine Triceps Pushdowns 2x10 (+2.5lbs, +1rep)
102.5x10, 102.5x11

Overall:

Another great workout. It's been a while since I have done squat but still progressed. Calve raises are again a nice addition that I will be keeping. That weight was kind of heavy so I will focus on just getting more reps on that lift for next time. I'm loving preacher curls because the feeling I get in my bicep is just amazing.

As you can see this is my "lower day" but I moved arms to this day because my upper day seems crowded and I don't have no desire to want to hit arms on that day. I also got this tip from reading around on the web so I decided to give it a try and I like it a lot. My goal here is to workout every other day and just keep it like that. My left knee has been in "slight" pain and it sometimes clicks when I walk but only after sitting for a while. I've been working and on my feet more so that may be part of the problem. However, I managed to squat with no pain at all but I could still feel it moving around during my workout. Right now it's not a problem but if it continues I'll look into a solution.

Thanks.
