A side press is sort of a variation on a military press where you do one arm at a time and lean to the side so you can get right under the weight. It was once a popluar strong man lift but it is not very commonly used anymore. If you look at the picture of Hefty Smurf in my avatar, he is performing a side press with a barbell. You can do it with a dumbell or barbell. Using a barbell involves a lot more balance and stabilization but you might get some odd looks at the gym. The side press is a great forgotten mass builder for the shoulders.

Cool, Brad. I hope you can get back to your training soon.

I finally got a 9 point caliper test and it is 11%. A little higher than I thought but that is okay.

That's pretty much what I have been doing except on some of my off days I have missed a dose here and there. Today I was actually thinking for the first time that I was feeling some results from it.

Legs
1.Squats
a.135x10
b.185x8
c.195x8
d.195x8

2.Leg Ext
a.100x10
b.125x10
c.150x8/75x10 (drop set)

3.Lying leg curl
a.90x10
b.110x10
c.120x7

4.Standing calf (double negatives)
a.155x10
b.175x10
c.175x8

5.Donkey calf
a.180x12
b.200x10


I ended off with some light ab work. The double negs were killer on the calf raises and I am starting to get some of my strength back. I think I am going to try squatting 205 for reps next week since the 195 went up easier than I expected.

Week two of bulking went a little better than week one, but I still haven't really found my groove yet like I did last winter. I felt like a machine back then. I got more calories this week, but my diet was not clean enough. I don't know whats better, getting too few cals or getting enough but from the wrong sources. I guess the latter, but I really don't want to let my body fat get out of control again. Next week is probably going to be messed up because the gym is closed most of Christmas eve and all of Christmas day, plus my work schedule is all screwy. Hopefully I can still get 3 workouts in but I'll have to play it by ear. Tomorrow, however, I am going to hit the weights with a fury. I can't wait!

I gained a pound this week. Probably just water weight, though. Here is todays workout.

1.Deadlift
a.135x10
b.225x6
c.245x5
c.265x3

2.Pullups
a.10
b.8
c.7

3.T-bar row
a.90x8
b.90x7

4.DB shrugs
a.65'sx10
b.70'sx10
c.70'sx10

5.DB hammers
a.35'sx8
b.35'sx8
c.35'sx6

6.Concentration curl
a.30'sx8
b.30'sx6
c.30'sx6

7.Hammer strength preacher curl
a.45x10
b.45x7

I pushed myself so hard on the deadlifts that I didn't have enough strength left for the rest of my workout. Overall, it was a good workout in that I felt that I really pushed myself, but I was a little bit disappointed with everything after the deadlifting. It is a long, slow journey. Gotta keep my head up and continue on.

Last time I did SLDL, I was completely out of it for the rest of the night. It's to be expected, and is why I don't do them too often, along with regular DLs.
