Abs

Crunches 4x20
Super man pilates 3x10
Lying leg raises 4x8
Opposite toe plate side bends 3x20

8 minutes of boxing

I thought yesterday was disappointing...i was excited about this week's weigh in, considering since last saturday i lifted 3 times and did cardio 4...ate perfectly.
Weigh in: 360.3
I actually gained about a half lb...I don't see how this is scientifically possible, as my calories per day are around 2200...say even 2500 if im somehow that off. Part of the reason I made this journal was to be more committed, but also to hear any feedback on what is the problem.

This is extremely discouraging.

Took a rest day. I'm going to give my currect routine another week, and if still no results, i'll try to work out some other things. But for now, I decided to switch from the elliptical to running on the treadmill. But before I can do that seriously, I need to strengthen my ankle. So i'll take it slow.

20 minute session
ankle pain: moderate
half jogging, half walking

Morning:

Treadmill
23 minutes
ankle pain: pretty bad, because it was still sore from yesterday. But in the past, pushing through the pain with the brace, in the end, i believe strengthened the tendons and after awhile built up a stronger leg. So, i will fight on!

jogging, walking: more walking today

------------------------------------------------

Afternoon:

It's funny how in the same workout, one muscle group can go terrible, but another can be amazing. For chest, my rotator got blasted and I felt real weak. I figured out my mistake but it was too late for today's lift. I was taking too short a break between sets. In order to keep my heart rate pumping, I was taking very short breaks, about 20 seconds. But the muscle just didn't recover enough in that time. Live and learn. While triceps went amazingly...great pump today.

Chest
barbell bench 185 10, 8, 6
incline bench 135 8, 6, 6
incline dumbbell bench 50s 8, 8, 6
*cut it short

Triceps
Skull crushers 25s ez 10x3
superset with incline bench 10, 8, 7
weight plate extensions 45 13, 15, 12

Also did some rotator work

Morning Cardio
Tennis 1 hour

---------------------------------------------

Afternoon: Biceps/Forearms/Back

Ez bar curls 25 on each side 4x10
seated dumbbell curls 25s 3x10
seated hammer curls 25s 10 10 8
concentration curls 25s 3x8

ez bar forearm shrugs 45s each/side 15 12 12
seated dumbbell concentration shrug 50 3x20
walking plate pinches 45s 3 holds
seated dumbbell palms down wrist curls 15s 3x20

good mornings 95 lbs 4x12 115 lbs 3x10

Notes: Awesome workout. I put in adequate rest between sets again, and it was great. My back seems to be progressing amazingly. I was able to really pound out reps with no problem, hopefully with the next workout I can up the weight and push it. Also, the workout was pretty long, almost an hour and 45 minutes. I didn't realize it or I would have taken a whey shake after an hour. Tomorrow i'll let my back rest before I take on squats on thursday, so i'll probably just do cardio.

Today is a rest day for my back so that I can squat it out tomorrow. But nevertheless, I did some light incline walking for 30 minutes for at least my ankle.

played tennis for an hour. Towards the end though I felt pretty burned out...contemplating saving the squats and shoulders for tomorrow. It's a big workout, considering it will help me determine if my improper form really was the cause of the back problems.

Shoulders
Military press 45, 45, 65, 65 4x10
ez bar shrugs 90, 120, 120, 140, 140 5x12
dumbell presses 30s, 40s, 40s 3x10
dumbbell shrugs 50's 4x15
lateral/side raises 10's 8, 8, 10
Rotator work

Squats
95 lbs 4x10

Notes: Rotator still hurt from military, but i'll keep moving slowly with it. Surprisingly dumbbell presses were great. Maybe i'll have to try the military presses towards the front of the chest instead of behind the neck. Squats went well, I worked on form and put the weight very low. But after such a long workout (nearly two hours) my back was a little stiff, so I only did 4 sets. Overall a solid session.

Whey day

Previous: 360.3 lbs
Current: 357.1 lbs
Change: -3.2 lbs

Finally some success! After almost two months of no change, i've gotten fantastic progress this week. I've been analyzing all morning what i've done differently this week.
1. Worked out longer, harder, and more often
2. Eaten more calories (an extra 600 a day roughly)
3. Consumed more fat (mostly olive oil)

I'll keep all this up in the hopes of continued progress. Good day

Morning: 25 minutes cardio
Incline walking with a few minutes mixed in of jogging.

--------------------------------------------------------

Afternoon: Biceps/Forearms/Back

Ez bar curls 30 on each side 4x10
seated dumbbell curls 25s 3x10
seated hammer curls 30s 10 10 8
concentration curls 20s 3x10

barbell forearm shrugs 45s each/side 15 15 15

t-bar rows 2 plates 3x10
good mornings 95 lbs 3x10 115 lbs 10 10 6

Notes: Not sure if it was because I was stuck at the office all day today (love saying that now) or the changing of pre workout nutrition, but today I was pumped. What I did was instead of eating the oatmeal with milk and a seperate whey shake, i just put water, whey, and the oatmeal in the blender. Anyways, I worked out for 2 hours (scoop of whey in the middle) and if not for my lower back being completely done, I would have kept going. Also I am going to slowly work in upper back as my lower one keeps getting stronger. Threw in t bar rows today..felt as if the form was not there yet. All in all, amazing workout.
