Default ///// juice\'s training journal \\\\\\\\\\ (comments welcomed)

Aight, never really been good at tracking my "progress" per say, but I've been doing somewhat good for over a year now as far as working out goes, so I'll try to do this in order to get me somewhat more motivated and hopefully take it to the next level.

A small backgound on me before i start though, since this might be critical in understanding my "messed" up training schedule/split.

I have 2 jobs, i work as a systems engineer during the day, and i bartend and manage at a local Outback in the evenings, so therefore, most of the time, i have to squeeze workouts in my lunch break from my day job (i take 2 hours for lunch, workout lasts about 50-60 minutes) since my gym is not open 24/7, and b/c of my schedule, it's hard for me to get up at 5 to go in the morning. So, keep that in mind when looking at my weekend workouts, which I might do a bit of overtraining (so I've been told), but those are the only 2 days (sat/sun) of the week where i can go to the gym and not rush anything, and plus, i can knock out as many sets of whatever i want until i can't lift any more.....good pain!

Anyhow, I will begin my training journal hopefully on saturday, when i start my new "week" with chest, i just did back/shoulders yesterday, and everything is sore right now after dead's........ [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

50 * 7 * 7 * 7
60 * 7 * 7 * 7

A couple of notes:

1.- My right shoulder is f'd, I'm icing it and putting heat on 15 minute intervals....hopefully I'll be good to go by Tue. I'm just going to do cardio tomorrow.

2.- I usually do a lot more variation on Leg day, my workout was not as intense today, i had a trainning partner on leg day for the first time, and since it was our first time trainning together(talked way too much), i guess my intensity was not all there.

3.- I'm going to try to take my body fat tonight, try to post it and hopefully set some goals based on that.....I'm hoping also i come out below 25%.......I'm a fat f'er [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Juice:
if you are still experiencing shoulder discomfort you might want to try some pre-exhaust techniques. instead of jumping on the incline bb press first (which will tax the hell out of your delts) maybe try doing standing cable cross-overs first.
