It's cyclical, Ron, it will all click back for you soon. You've been at it long enough to know. :tu

Rep day for shoulders. Military press, 200+ reps at 135.
Barbell shrugs, 100+ reps at 225.

The somewhat short workout was necessitated by a couple f***ing morons monopolizing multiple racks for the first 20 minutes after I arrived. I finally told them they were going to have to give one up. They started to explain why they needed multiple racks for the circuit they were doing. While they were explaining, I tore their sh!t off one of the racks and set up for shoulders. :r

lolllll... I had two JanuaryGymNewbs do this in the squat rack for 45 mins.. they were both squatting the same weight (dogshit) and I asked them twice if they were almost done and they gave me some bro explanation..AND, when they were done, they left all their weights on there.....

Luckily my gf is a personal trainer there. Lets just say, they are no longer members there :D


BTW, that's a lot of reps..

I hope this week will be a fresh beginning for m.. I did some sumo deadlifts for legs yesterday for reps, and i felt great and had a good sweat again.. hopefully i will get rid of the funk! hehe

thanks man

I should have channeled my inner Tom ytrdy. Nearly empty gym, 2 sets of open cables ... and this dude is watching me (weird) do a super set and I take a 30sec rest and start back in and as soon as I pick up the first cable attachment he rushes to the second cable that I'm obviously using and starts adjusting it and then acts like that dick in traffic who cuts you off but then won't look at you.
I'm considerate at the gym and if it's busy I just do my supersets on one cable and rotate the adjustment and attachment but the gym was dang near empty. :/
Next time, my inner Tom is gonna make an appearance. Maybe then I'll be able to row like him :)

Got a back lift in today at lunch. And this afternoon I hauled a queen sized mattress up 2 flights of stairs in a cape cod, so I'm ready to die LOL

Awesome work, Ron!!!

Mind if I ask a personal question regarding your weight loss? (Asking as someone who was 344 and is now 264 and trying to lose fat while getting stronger lol)

sure, no problem man.. theres a bunch of posts on here to explain..
http://www.cigarasylum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=49714

but I consider myself more than privy to what it genuinely takes to lose weight. ive become very familiar with the body, nutrition, supplementation, etc. it has truly changed my life, and I couldn't be happier.. ask me anything you'd like, here or via PM.

on that note, anybody who has truly been through the ringer will tell you that nutrition is everything!

Me and the lady cook our meals every Sunday, and we eat 5 meals a day. No BS'ing

I had my first Chipolte burrito bowl 15 minutes ago. Does that make me a bad person? :)

Ron, that's crazy meal prep, but it obviously works for you two!

PLAMFed, Charlie? :D

Hmmmm chipotle! That reminds me, I have a free burrito from them.

Chipotle is awesome but if you happen to have Baja Fresh, that's even better. Been going there for my burrito bowl. X2 chicken and it's insane how much they give you.

I've had Chipolte a couple times, years ago, but I had a burrito those times, didn't know they had bowls. It won't be the last, 2 substantial meals for four bucks fits by budget nicely. :D

Okay, now go try Baja Freshs bowl!

thanks man, yeah it definitely works for me, ive tried cycling off it a week and I leterally didn't know who I was.. lol


BTW, I am jealous of the chipotle, that's one of my treats every now and then.. get some Guac on that bad boy.. make it 900 calories.. lol

he is right, Baja Fresh is pretty legit..!

we have one like 15 mins from us.. but chipotle just opened up across the road, so its a wrap... lol

Adriftpanda
03-10-2016, 01:03 PM
Here's the combo, Noob Tom...

Scoop of rice (ask for the regular rice)
2x-3x steak
Medium salsa + corn
Lots of lettuce

Oh! Fajita mix, throw that in there too.

NeuRon
03-10-2016, 01:18 PM
I remember I got a coupon for a free Bowl or burrito there once, and nowhere on the ticket did it say I couldn't add extras. So I added 5x steak and 2x Guac.. the lady looked at me like I was a savage.. hey at least I broke it into two meals.. lol

icehog3
03-10-2016, 09:08 PM
Chest today, did insane reps. Stayed at 205 on bench, 185 on inclines, and 225 on declines, and did reps 'til my chest didn't work any more. I can't even get one drop of milk out of these puppies.

Adriftpanda
03-10-2016, 10:09 PM
Masom can share some milk, we have a freezer full of milk.

Quick back and then played a game of bball because they needed one.

Close grip neutral grip pull down 5x8-10
Single t mine row 4x10
Hammer strength pull down 5x10
Pull ups 5xfailure

back day today.. not dure how heavy I will be going... maybe I will just rep until I puke like you fellas lol

icehog3
03-11-2016, 09:50 AM
Back day here too, haven't got a game plan yet...see when I get there.

swingerofbirches
03-11-2016, 11:17 AM
Seems like it's some kind of back day for everyone on here :)

Started a new Deadlift program today ... figured maybe i'll try a program instead of always killing myself lol

Today was 5x5 @ 75% of 1RM but i actually rounded down a tad since my lower back is still kinda tweeky ...

So I did my warmups and then singles up to 495x1 and then 5x5 @ 365 (no straps)

After my DLs i did some barbell shrugs and some arm work for a pump :)

Since i'm used to mostly just doing heavy doubles or singles ... 5x5 was surprisingly exhausting considering the weight was fairly light.

Next week is 5x3 @ 80%

icehog3
03-11-2016, 02:51 PM
All the more impressive that you did some heavy singles first, Charlie. :tu

I went Ron's route, and did a rep day like I did for chest yesterday. Tried to keep the reps over 20, but was hurting at the end of cable rows.

Wide pulldowns @ 200 6 sets
Barbell rows @ 205 6 sets
T-bar rows 225, 250, 270, 225, 225
Cable rows 200, 220, 240, 260
Pullups 2 sets to failure

Have hockey games the next 3 days, 2 playoff games sandwiched with a Cops V Hosers charity game tomorrow.

Adriftpanda
03-12-2016, 12:35 AM
Please pick up after yourself. One of my biggest pet peeves. Some cool bro DB shrugged and did like 5 drop sets, leaving 10+DB on the ground and he walked off.

Other than watching that from across the room, I had a hell of a session. Focused and felt every rep.

Walking lunges - 1/2 mile (these are a mf'er)
Plate loaded squat press 6x12 w/drop
Leg extensions - lying leg curls 4x12-15

Finished up wth some quick abs.

Had to try that quesalupa from Taco Bell. Nice post workout snack lol

icehog3
03-12-2016, 01:36 AM
Nice, Huy....especially the quesalupa. :D

Adriftpanda
03-12-2016, 07:53 PM
Quick shoulder and arms.

Seated military press 7x8
Bb upright row 5x8-12
DB side delt raise 5x10

Cable extensions - bb curl 5x8-22
Ez bar cable curls - Push downs 5x10-22

About to grill up some Korean style short ribs.

icehog3
03-13-2016, 12:44 AM
Now I'm hongry. :D

Took today off, 3 hockey games in 3 days and today's was at 1:45 and I just couldn't hack it. I will get in a short shoulder workout tomorrow before my playoff game at 4, then hit it again Monday before taking Tuesday off due to work training.

swingerofbirches
03-13-2016, 01:20 PM
Good work and good eating, fellas!

Got in a super high volume chest and hammies workout in today. I have a feeling that pizza is on the docket for this evening. I'll have to attempt to be reasonable lol

icehog3
03-13-2016, 02:03 PM
Think it might be my first pizza meal in a while after my playoff hockey game, Charlie, it's raining so I think the BBQ is probably off.

I'll get back in the gym tomorrow, two days of slacking here with my 3 day / 3 game weekend. Gotta back back on the train.

Adriftpanda
03-13-2016, 02:40 PM
Hmmmmmm pizza!

Maybe I'll grab a slice, I'm at Costco. The kiddo just fell asleep so sitting in the parking lot, letting him rest for 15 min.

Now that's some solidarity, Tom!

What's on the list, Ron?

NeuRon
03-14-2016, 10:41 AM

Ok so here's a question for everyone that loves a good, bad meal ... last meal?

swingerofbirches
03-14-2016, 11:23 AM
For me ... the biggest, dry aged filet mignon I can get ahold of, cooled medium-rare, baked macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes and butter. Finished off with a chocolate torte. Fill me up with all that goodness and I think I'm ready to meet my maker lol

Chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, crawfish etoufee on dirty rice, blackened catfish, king crab legs and a porterhouse steak, medium. Sweet corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, crisp green beans. Haggen Daz Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream and a couple of Moe's canolis. Just need to get the beverage list in order. Hope to die of a burst stomach before they give me the lethal injection.

NeuRon
03-14-2016, 12:34 PM
Im with Huy.. Give me a Pizza and ill take it to the face. And then give me another.. lol

Perhaps an Ol Fashioned Grandma Pie with fresh garlic and basil. Crunchy bottom and a few dollops of mozzarella.

Sometimes I also just crave a bacon cheeseburger with some nice crispy fries..


on that note, meal#4, chicken and broccoli.. fml. lol

In an attempt to be smart and not aggravate any of my lingering injuries, i took a scheduled day off from lifting ... and i'm hating it. :/

Did some long, slow distance cardio with the wife and i'm gonna take the dog for a walk in a little bit. But man do i hate days when I don't lift. lol

Had Mexican for dinner though ... twas delicious! :)

So I woke up Monday and I couldn't move.. turns out

Partially Torn Right Rotator Cuff.. FML..

Adriftpanda
03-16-2016, 08:47 AM
Ouch! Speedy recovery brotha.

I'm on the IR for w couple days myself. Back felt a little tight so I decided to stretch it, ended up tweaking it. I could move and Staci had to help me up. Feeling better today but just going to take a couple days off.

Had a good back session though. :)

swingerofbirches
03-16-2016, 09:09 AM
Dang, Ron, that sucks. Heal up quickly man!

icehog3
03-16-2016, 10:45 AM
Ironic, I head back when a couple of you are on the IR.

Take good care of that, Ron. I haven't had a working left rotator cuff for years, but I don't recommend it one bit.

Hope you're back at it soon too, Huy.

I'm headed in, planning on chest, but it's wide open if I feel like something different when I get there.

NeuRon
03-16-2016, 11:18 AM

im heading to the specialist on Friday to get a timetable and a plan on how to handle it..

thanks guys.. I appreciate it..

im heading to the specialist on Friday to get a timetable and a plan on how to handle it..

Probably a crapload of "rubber band" therapy, enough to make guys like us nuts. Hoping it's a minor tear, Ron.

Chest day today, prefatigued on the Leverage vertical bench so I had to go significantly lighter on my subsequent lifts. Probably a good idea after 5 days off anyway. :r

Incline bench 195, 215, 235, 255

I'd think it was strange if you didn't want to, Ron. It's our way of life. ;)

swingerofbirches

lol agree with Tom ... we'd think that there was something wrong with you if you didn't wanna work out :)

My face hurts ... did some arms today anyway :)

icehog3
03-17-2016, 04:00 PM
Hope that tooth heals fast, Charlie. :tu

Little bit of abs but nothing crazy.

Everyone have a great Friday! :)

Adriftpanda

Biceps and traps today, heavy on bis and reps on the shrugs.

My hockey team won their 5th league championship in 6 years tonight, lots on Black and Tans after, along with burgers, nachos, crap. We'll see about the gym in the morning. :r

Adriftpanda
03-20-2016, 02:25 AM
Nachos! Not sure about crap though, that doesn't sound good. Nachos on the other hand, that sounds good right now, I'll settle on some cheeze it's... :(

Chest today.. Prolly stay moderate for weight.. but I need to be back already.. enough of the horseshit.. lol

Crazy day. Was supposed to be back day. Back felt tweaked before the ride to the gym, and worse when I got out at the gym. Decided on the way in I would do shoulders today and back tomorrow when it would hopefully be un-kinked.

Got inside and that Hispanic chick who like to do some kind of two inch of motion exercise from her knees in the rack for 90 minutes was in the rack doing them. I was already short on time. Saw 3 plates on the T-bar setup and said "it's a sign"..

Was strong on back, and untweaked by back as well. Crazy.

T-bar rows 205, 225, 250, 270, 295, 270
Barbell rows 205, 235, 265, 285, 235, 205
Pullups 13, 13, 12

mannnn did I feel weak after 6 days off of lifting!

I reluctantly started with incline dumbbell press, and I stopped at 100's, and they felt like 2000's. lol. 2 warmups sets and 4 working sets..

did some flat bench twist flys and supersetted them with champagnes

then did a bunch of isolateral cable flies because I felt like a sissy at that rate..

100 diamond pushups and then 20 mins of cardio and then collapse..

I guess ill take it for day one back!

killer back day yesterday following a low weight, high rep shoulder day on Thursday

Back is usually not my strongpoint, but I felt great, and the gf killed it. So far, I am down 20lbs on my cut and the GF is down 13lbs, and its amazing the strength she still has.

The crappy part about cutting, IMO, is that I want to lift heavy, but training myself to dip down a little bit to 60-75% to prevent injury is the hard part.. more of a mental mindf*ck.. lol

Good work, Rons gf :)

Legs today, decided to squat. Felt like I haven't hit squats in a while. It's probably close to a month. Combination of my back and knee, so I gave it a rest.

Today it was okay, went light and hit for reps.

Warmed up with leg extensions and seated leg curls 4x15+
Squats 5x12+ @225, it felt light but I didn't want to push it heavier.
Leg press 5x12+
Lying leg curls - seated leg extensions 3x15

Oh! Did side delts too.

Seated DB side delt raise 4x12+
Bb upright row (wide grip, medium grip, close grip) 4x10+ so basically a **** load of reps.

did back and 30 mins of stepper yesterday after my workout..

For Back, I tried my "Three Quarters" circuit. Which I created myself.. I usually do it with a body part every now and then when I no longer feel sore in certain muscle groups.

Three Quarters = .75 or 75

Three Exercises, Three Sets of 25 (for 75 Reps), Three Quarters Speed (in both eccentric and Concentric direction ), 75% max weight of 1RM, 75 Seconds rest in between every set & exercise


I chose :
1) Supinated grip Barbell rows @135, standing on a platform, close stance
2) Hammer strength machine Overhand Rows
3) Closed Grip, Overhead Lat pulldowns

I was literally sweating like a Pig at the Bacon farm in 10 minutes. And I was sore 5 minutes after.. If anybody ever has hit a plateau with a body part, or just plain gets tired of a muscle group, or doesn't feel any burn, try this type of workout..

Good work, Huy. :tu

I hit shoulders today, just presses and shrugs, but a good workout.

One of my buddies gave me some samples of the new coffee based PWO he is selling, I am skeptical, but will give it a try sometime later in the week.

Haven't been taking any pwo really because how late I've been training, and it's been perfectly fine. Had a good day of legs today, hit volume, didn't go too heavy. I think heaviest I hit was 225 for front squats. Everything else was good volume 75-80%1rm

10 min on the treadmill to warm up

Leg extensions
Seated leg curls
Front squats 5x6-8
Stiff leg deads
Plate loaded squat press

Everything was about 4-5x10+

Chest and abs tomorrow and then off for a couple days to herf :)

Made a last minute decision to take the cycle to the gym today.

Forgot my iPod, forgot my tape. Totally threw me off, it was supposed to be back day. Figured shoulders would be better without tunes (and the horrible crap they play at the gym) and no tape on my hands (to keep from ripping the skin off my fingers on heavy rows).

Got a decent shoulder workout, did seated presses and rear delts. Skipped the shrugs as I hope to row heavy tomorrow, assuming every f*cking bar at the gym isn't taken by all the new asswipes who have joined my gym. :)

04-16-2016, 04:07 PM
Back day. Remembered by iPod, took my headphones out of my bag. Bought an $11 pair at the gym, they had 75 cent performance.

Low gas, but got a good workout. Reps were a little lower than I'd have liked, but you go with what you've got.

Bent over rows 215, 235, 255, 275, 285, Drop set 305/285/255/225

Lots of good lifts fellahs. Im jelly

So peak weak for me has been leas than stellar. Not much has changed for me but I think it was a perfect learning experience for me. I did perfectly with the cardio,and with low weighted, high rep workouts. Always had a decent sweat. My eating was not even that hard. I definatly should have put more focus into sodium and water intake. My abs are there still but i think i could be alot better. But hey, im usually hard on myself and i wanted this to be a learning experience

Thanks to you guys for helping me keep daily motivation!

Now off to Mexico to enjoy some sun!! Be back soon guys! Cheers!

I'm looking to change my chest routine as well.

I got a new pwo today. It's by Intek, it's a cheap pwo $20 for 40 servings. Just high in stim but it'll give you a nice kick in butt. If taken, you'll need to mix it with something.
