Default Skinny Boy\'s Journal Part Two

Last winter when I was keeping a journal I made really good gains and I think the journal had something to do with it, so I figured since I am begining my bulk today that it was a perfect time. My split for the first few weeks will be:

Mon-Back,Traps,Biceps
Wed-Chest,shoulders,triceps
Fri-Legs

When I have a chance I will squeeze in abs once or twice a week and maybe a cardio session here and there. My days might have to change around a little depending on my schedule but it will be those three workouts in that order every week.

I am awaiting an order from dps nutrition that will hopefully arrive tomorrow. It contains a 10 lb. bag of optimum whey, a box of myoplex bars, a box of balance bars and a tub of swole v2. A lot of people have been saying good things about the swole so I want to see for myself. Hopefully that will be enough supps to get me through my bulk. Now all I need is about 100 chicken breasts and 20 jars of natty pb and I'll be set. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Today being Monday I did Back/traps/biceps

1.Deadlift
a.135x10
b.185x10
c.225x6

2.T-bar row
a.90x10
b.100x8
c.100x6

3.DB pullover
a.50x10
b.60x8
c.60x7

4.DB shrugs
a.70'sx10
b.70'sx10

5.BB shrugs
a.185x10
b.185x8

6.DB hammer curl
a.35'sx10
b.35'sx8
c.35'sx6

7.Standing EZ bar curl
a.65x6
b.65x5/35x7 (drop set)

I haven't deadlifted in a while before today and my back is killing me. But I don't mind. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Hey Brad, thanks for stopping by! Good to see that people are following my journal already.

Hey irandall16, I am getting chocolate peanut butter myoplex bars. I never had blueberry but it sounds pretty nasty.

Hey, glad to have your journal back to read.

Do you go to failure on all your lifts, the last one or two of each exercise, or every so often?

Hey Manson, what's up? Usually just the last set is to failure but sometimes the second set is as well. If I go to failure on the first set then I have no strength left by the last one. Although, the deadlifting I did yesterday was not to failure. I didn't want to push it since I didn't deadlift while I was cutting. My low back is still really sore today anyway.

Ah, I'm going to start doing it that way, too. I had been hitting failure at every set but I think that's worn out its shock value. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Last night I started stopping short of failure and did well.

Wow there are a lot more people keeping journals than there was when I had my last journal going. I got bumped back to page 3 in only a day.

Anyway, the supplements arrived yesterday as planned and I began taking the swole v2. I took one dose before the workout and one after. On off days I will probably take it once in the afternoon and then again before bed. I got the "unflavored" variety, but it definatley has a flavor and it tates awful. But I'll suck it down and deal because that's part of being hardcore [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Today I did chest/shoulders/tris and here is what it looked like:

1.BB bench
a.135x6 (warm up)
b.205x8
c.205x7
d.205x5

2.DB bench
a.45'sx8
b.55'sx8
c.55'sx7

3.Standing Arnolds
a.25'sx10
b.35'sx8
c.35'sx5

4.Standing side laterals
a.20'sx8
b.20'sx9
c.20'sx6

5.Skullcrushers
a.45x10
b.65x8
c.65x6

6.Rope pulldown
a.65x10
b.75x10
c.85x8/65x6 (drop set)

7.Pushups (to 50)
a.30
b.12
c.8

Overall it was a good workout. My strength declined a lot during my cut but that is to be expected. Hopefully it will come back over the next few weeks and then a few weeks after that I will hopefully reach new personal bests. That's how it goes, you gotta take a step forward and then a half step back before you can take another step forward. The longer I do this the slower the progress gets, but this time I am in no big rush since I already feel good about where I am at.

Leg Day

1.Squats
a.45x20
b.135x10
c.185x8
d.185x10

2.Hack squats
a.90x10
b.90x10

3.Leg ext.
a.90x10
b.105x10
c.120x10/75x10 (drop set)

4.Lying leg curl
a.80x10
b.90x10
c.110x8

5.Donkey calf
a.200x15
b.220x10
c.220x10

Today was the first time that I hack squatted in a while so I took it easy. Besides, my legs are weak and scrawny plus they got extra weak while I was cutting probably from all the running. I started to feel pukey toward the end of this workout so I cut it a little short. I might try doing calves first because I really feel like I haven't been hitting them hard enough when I save them until the end.

Do you have a machine for donkey raises or do you get someone to jump on your back? I've never seen a machine for these, I don't usually get to do them, unless my girlfried is willing to sit on my back.
