Triceps (started late, so had to cut the arm workout to just triceps...they're lagging, I think)
After warmups:
Weight*# of reps
Standing DB extensions (4 sets): 45*8, 45*6, 40*7, 40*6
One-arm standing DB extensions (2 sets each arm): 20*5, 15*10
Lying BB extensions: 40*6, 30*10
DB Kickbacks (2 sets each arm): 15*5, 15*5
It's been a while since I've worked triceps...and they've been lagging. By the end, I was in such great pain...It's wonderful.
Can't wait for tomorrow and tomorrow's back/shoulder workout!!

Shoulders, traps, and upper back. Would've started with a warmup, then pullups, but couldn't do pullups today because my parents kept going up and down the stairs (which is where I do my pullups). So, instead, just jumped into my back workout. Tried out some new stuff for shoulders...threw in a set of Overhead Shrugs because I read something about 'em and decided to try 'em out and see what I thought (didn't like) and the last set of DB press was actually Arnold press...that was okay, might keep it up.
Bent over DB rows: 45*5, 45*7, 45*6
Bent over BB rows: 70*5, 90*8, 90*6
Upright BB rows: 60*4, 60*5, 50*6
BB shrugs: 70*7, 105*5, 105*5
Overhead shrugs: 40*10
Standing DB Press: 35*5, 35*6, 35*5
Military Press: 70*6, 70*5

Time to start looking forward to tomorrows legs and lower back workout...

Well, started good...Grip kept giving out on DLs and SLDLs...They need serious work. Also, loaded up the bar 'til I couldn't fit any more weight on for DLs (probably could've gotten another 10 pounds if I woulda taken the clips off, but I'm leary of that). Giving Good Mornings a try for the first time. The first 2-3 reps were really weird, but after that I started lovin' 'em...
Stiff-Legged Deadlifts: 110*9, 130*5, 150*4
Good Mornings: 70*8, 90*7, 110*5
Deadlifts: 150*6, 160*5, 170*5, 190*4
Overhead Squats: 70*5, 90*5, 80*5
Front Squats: 90*6, 100*5

That's all for today, had planned to continue on with another set of front squats, a couple of sets of Three-Pump Lunges, a set of Stationary Lunges, and a couple of sets of Standing Calf-Raises, but after my last set of Front Squats the phone rang and scared the crap outta me...accidentally kicked the couch and hurt my foot...Just needs ice and it'll be ok, but couldn't finish my workout. That's okay, my calves are already pretty developed compared to my arms...could've really used the lunges though.

Tomorrow should be a day off, but I'm thinking about bumping up forearms and doing them alone tomorrow since they're lagging so badly.

Hey just caution, your working your forearms at the same time, so u might just think about them.

Thanks...I know, but they're lagging and I want to get everything even...I've decided against working 'em today.

Was considering working forearms today, but decided against it. I had p.e. today and was supposed to play catch after school, but my partner for catch forgot his glove, so we cancelled that. Going bowling with some friends tonight though.

Before p.e. I weighed in at 175.9 pounds...Cut going well. Still need to keep dropping the weight so I can be defined though...

Missed my workout today. Was just getting ready for it when I got a call that my grandpa wasn't doing well and I needed to go visit him. So, my Arms don't get pounded 'til tomorrow, if I even have time then. It's gonna be hard for a while, but I'm gonna do my best to keep it up.

Another abreviated arm workout today...Had to leave earlier than I expected, so it got cut short again. Barely got my arms sore. In fact, I think all my soreness might be from playing catch yesterday.

Standing DB extensions: 50*6, 50*6, 55*6
Last set supersetted with
One Arm DB Extensions (each arm): 20*5
Then another set of One Arm DB Extensions: 20*8
Lying BB Extensions: 50*4, 40*7
BB Curls: 40*7, 50*6
Alternating Hammer Curls: 25*7, 25*6
Alternating Dumbell Curls: 25*7

If I get in a workout tomorrow, it'll be shoulders and upper back again, but I'm not sure how likely it'll be that I can lift again any time soon.

Yippee...my favorite day of the workout cycle: traps, back, and shoulders. This afternoon, played basketball for an hour or so with several of my uncles and cousins. Had a great time. Was worried about my workout, since I jammed several fingers on my left hand. Was just mostly worried about keeping everything even. Didn't wanna get unbalanced 'cause I didn't think I'd be able to do as much with my left arm (really worried about bent over DB rows...but my left arm was actually wanted more. In the past, the left side of my back has always been a lil stronger, but lately my right side has been...so this is a good sign that it's all evening out again.
My workout went something like this:

Bent-Over DB Rows: 50*7, 55*6, 55*6
Bent-Over BB Rows: 100*4, 100*5, 100*4
Would've had a set of Upright BB Rows here, but after a couple of reps, I knew this would be too painful on the fingers...so, only got 70*2
BB Shrugs: 100*6, 110*7, 110*6
Arnold Press: 40*4, 40*5, 40*5
Military Press: 90(4, 80*4, 80*5
Finished up with an Iron Cross with 10 pound DBs for about 30 seconds...

Let me explain some stuff: For Shrugs, I bring the weight up and hold the contraction for 5 seconds, then lower it slowly, but all the way. On military press, totally screwed up when putting plates on and got 90 instead of 75...just a lil error where my mind was somewhere else. Also, the Iron Cross thing...You're supposed to pick up a 5 or 10 dumbell in each hand and hold them straight out (palms facing forward) for 2 minutes. I wussed out with 10s after 30 seconds...I've done it for a full 2 minutes before with 10s, but that wasn't after a workout...that was a contest between me and a friend.

Since my family is all in town for a while, we're planning on getting together to play basketball tomorrow, so I'll take the day off from lifting in case I injure myself again. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
For now though, I'm off to watch Rocky II and to fall asleep on the couch.
