My 8 year old daughter, Emaleigh, is what you might call an over-achiever. She often goes to the gym with me. I have shown her some exercises and she does her own little workout. She even keeps a log, like her pappy. Today, while I was taking a rest break, I managed to sneak some footage of her going all "Beast Mode" on the elliptical. She didn't even know she was being recorded/watched. Made me tired just watching her, lol.

11/7/13- My first competition isn't until March, but I still consider myself a powerlifter. Therefore, I find it unacceptable that my bench press is bigger than my deadlift. It is time to begin training deadlifts like I mean it. Today was the first step. As I get more used to deadlifts and related exercises, I will be able to do more rack pulls and such.

Deadlifts
Warmups
RDL with bar x 10, 10
deadlifts
135 x 10
185 x 8

work sets
205 x 5
225 x 5
245 x 5
265 x 5
285 x 5

Rack pulls
275 x 5
295 x 5
315 x 5

T-bar rows
warmups
45 x 10, 10, 10
90 x 8
140 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

I am still doing some biceps exercises, which won't help my deadlift much, but even powerlifters need guns, right?

alt db curls
warmups
25 x 10, 10, 10

work sets
30 x 8
35 x 8
40 x 8

Lying cable curls
60 x 12
100 x 10, 8, 8, 8

Good luck. Smash those deadlifts. Let the weight come to you and keep that lower back healthy.

Thanks, Steve! My deadlift has a lot of catching up to do.

11/9/13-shoulder day

Seated OH BB press
warmups
bar x 10, 10
135 x 5- I felt like I jumped too far when I did this set, so I went over to the dumbbell rack and did a couple more light sets with dumbbells. (too lazy to unload the 45's)
30lb DB's x 10, 15
155 x 5

work sets
185 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

OH DB press
60 x 5, 8, 7

DB upright rows
Warmups
15 x 15, 15
20 x 10
25 x 10

work sets
30 x 8, 10
35 x 8, 8, 8

BB shrugs-switched to these from db shrugs on the advice of a friend. Will take some getting used to. Hard for me to do correctly due to my extra large gut getting in the way, lol.

warmups
135 x 10
185 x 8

work sets
225 x 6
225 x 6
225 x 5- my grip gave out at #5
225 x 10-used straps, made the ten reps pretty easy (yes, I have a girly grip, it's one of the weakest links in my deadlift)

Tomorrow is leg day, GLORIOUS leg day. I can't wait! Also, per advice from BTB, I am supposed to be doing some conditioning after my workouts, but I keep forgetting to take a protein shake with me to the gym (to drink after my workout and before my conditioning). I shall return to the gym later today for said conditioning workout.

Thanks, Steve. I am trying to get those up in an effort to bring up my bench press some more.

11/10/13- The 238th birthday of my beloved Marine Corps and, as it turns out, it is leg day as well. How fitting.

I was a little disappointed in my squat session today, but I believe there were two contributing factors. The first one is the fact that I just worked deadlifts the day before yesterday. I strongly believe that I need at least two days between deadlifts and squats to be able to really push it hard on both. I actually would prefer 3 days to be honest.

The second factor is that my schedule got thrown off just a little bit this morning and I wasn't able to consume a satisfactory amount of carbs before my workout. This has caused serious problems in the past.

I added some sets on the hip sled back in to compensate for only doing 4 work sets on squats. When I started on the hip sled I could tell that my deadlift session was affecting my squats. These didn't feel as heavy as they should have.

Anyway, on to the work.

Squats
warmups
bar x 10, 10
135 x 8
185 x 5
225 x 1
245 x 1
275 x 1
315 x 1

Work sets
355 x 5
355 x 5
360 x 5
365 x 5- I had to cut it off there. I just didn't have enough gas left to get my fifth set, so I moved on to the hip sled.

Hip sled
560 x 10
650 x 5
740 x 5
830 x 5
920 x 5

That is all. This week marks the 6 month point in my journey. Therefore I will be doing a max day on at least the big three lifts this week to see where I currently stand. I have made much better progress than I had ever expected I could, so I am excited to see where I am at. I should be able to increase the poundages of all the lifts in my sig except for maybe squat, which I just hit a couple weeks ago. Let's do this!
