Entered a 5k this weekend (actually... it was .6 miles longer than a typical 5k)... somehow I got 3rd in my age group (30-39) and Shell got second in her age group (30-39).

Stats:

Dan - 3.16 miles in 28.55 minutes, 9.15mi/minute pace - 66th place overall

Shell - 3.16 miles in 22.55, 7.25mi/minute pace - 20th place overall

In preparation for the race, I had 6 cigars Friday and 6 cigars Saturday... ran the race Sunday morning...


Anyway, today is a gym day for the wife and I. She's lifting like a beast and throwing pull-ups/chin-ups down like nobody's business!

Yesss new thread :ze

My elbows can't handle any tricep exercises except close grip bench and dips. Seems like everything else I do just irritates them. This is new for me and I'm not enjoying it.

Ordered the Prodigy today off of Amazon. $2 more than the site Huy shared, but I had a $20 Amazon gift certificate.

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Great back day. A little pressed for time since I also had to go to karate, but I still managed to get through everything. Using the T-Bar Row Machine with 4 plates now for 6-8 reps, 4 times -- Very happy about that.

Adriftpanda 10-11-2013 07:51 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Deads today, along with heavy back. Resting for the next few days, needing it. Refuel weekend.

I started to add in an extra meal about 500 extra calories. Adding in a little more red meat and upping my fat intake slightly. Slow bulking up to 185-190 by May.

Adriftpanda 10-12-2013 11:57 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Suppose to be a rest day, but wife wanted to legs today, just happens that leg days fell on Saturday as well...

lying leg curls -- stiff leg deads -- single leg extensions (giant set) 4x8

Did chest on Friday and still feeling it. Went to a Bat Mitzvah yesterday and glad I was not asked to lift the Torah; not sure how confident I would be since I am still feeling the pain from Friday...

RobR1205 10-13-2013 05:22 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Worked back today. Started off with ten minutes of decent cardio on the treadmill to get warmed up. Did t-bar rows, dumbbell curls, reverse flies, lat pull downs, and strict form barbell curls.

Adriftpanda 10-14-2013 03:12 AM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Did push day with the wife, 7th day in a row.

Flat DB -- side lat raises -- plyo push ups (4x10 giant set)
Cable fly -- front lat raises -- jump ropes (3x10 giant set)
Hammer strength incline -- dips -- "bus drivers" (4x10 giant set)

Going to finish today with a back and maybe deadlift. It will be 8 straight days of training.

Adriftpanda 10-14-2013 06:15 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Back day! Didn't do any deads. 8 straight days of training, didn't feel like it.

Gonna rest up tomorrow. Vacation time!

icehog3 10-14-2013 06:25 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Legs and bi's this AM, skipped the squats after hockey last night and went with presses and hamstring curls. Barbell and dumbbell curls for the bi's....Tomorrow is an off day, Wednesday will be a full upper body day, hockey Wed. night, and then 4 days off from the gym and the rink.

RobR1205 10-15-2013 09:43 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Great day in the gym today. Had myself a great chest and tri workout. Highlight of my day was dumbbell presses, which I got for 100lbs x 10,8,8,8,8 reps (a personal best). Thinking about jumping to 110s soon.

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Left myself super short on time for my workout today, didn't get to arms, but ended up having a great back workout. 16 sets in about 25 minutes. 8 sets of pullups (varying grips) to failure, 5 sets on Bentover Rows for reps to 295, and wide cable rows for 3 sets of 260.

My back (and wind) was hammered after the 8 sets of pullups on minimal rest, yet I was able to hammer out high reps at 265, 275, 285 and 295 on the rows.

Love when you can turn a potentially bad workout into a great one.

Adriftpanda 10-17-2013 11:49 AM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Same HIIT as yesterday.
Planks 1 min --- mountain climbers 45 sec x4

Incline DB row --- db revers flys 4x8-10
Lat pull downs 4x10 (using different grips each set)

icehog3 10-27-2013 03:36 PM

Very good chest day!

Strict Form Bench Press, Downward tricep extensions, Side Shoulder Raises, Incline Dumbbell Bench, Skullcrushers.

Very sore....luckily it was followed by a great day of fishing, smoking, and an amazing home cooked dinner!

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II

Howzit fellas? D Day is Friday, just finished up all my post Op stuff and if all goes as planned, surgery on my left shoulder Friday:-( Do to bursitis setting in, it appears he will have to clean the cuff as well. Little nervous to say the least. Have no idea what recovery will be like or how long it will take, but if I end up with out the pain I will be happy.

Just wishing for a successful procedure:-)

Adriftpanda 10-30-2013 09:00 AM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Jay! Hope all goes well brother. Better late than never, will keep you in my thoughts.

Hope Atl treated you well.

icehog3 10-30-2013 12:00 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Praying for success, Jay, I hope you get complete relief and a fast recovery.

Off day today, might take an extra day off tomorrow due to a late hockey game tonight.

Huy, I haven't forgotten about you, the stuff I had apparently dried out, but I have a source for the old formula and should have it by week's end.

Adriftpanda 10-30-2013 03:21 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
No worries, Tom. I just been waiting patiently by the mail box :( JK

Leg day. Wow did it kicked my ass. Basically having 2 weeks off from legs really sucked for my legs. Had a great workout but it was tough.

Squats 4x8-10
Deads 4x6
Leg Presses 5x8-10
DB Lunges 3x10
Single leg extensions --- lying leg curls 3x10

Adriftpanda 10-31-2013 06:13 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Shoulder day for me. Finished up with some trceps.

Decided to try something new for breakfast, made protein pancakes (dumby edition). Came out pretty tasty. Tom, you should try it.

1/2 cup oats
2 egg whites
1 scoop of protein

mix it up and then pour it on your pan, took me 3 minutes to make. Cut up some bananas and used 100% honey as topping.

icehog3 10-31-2013 06:32 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Not bad, Huy. I made some super yogurt the other day, 1 1/2 scoops of ON Chocolate Peanut Butter Whey, two blended vanilla Chobani Greek yogurts, couple good squeezes of honey, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries....about 60 grams of protein, and some good simple sugar for recovery after hockey, plus all the anti-oxidants.

Adriftpanda 10-31-2013 06:39 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
That sounds pretty good lol, may have to try that tomorrow. I'm a big acai fan, I'll throw some of that in as well

Adriftpanda 11-01-2013 05:40 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Heavy back day. Kept it no more than 5 reps, with 4-5 sets.

Made protein french toast this morning, enjoyed it and so did Staci.

Adriftpanda 11-02-2013 03:28 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Lighter leg day. Time for paaaasta.

icehog3 11-04-2013 02:31 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Easy day, arms and abs.

Got my new supply of Jack3d in today, Huy. :D

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Had a very good back workout. After watching some Dorian Yates training and listening him talk about back training, I changed a couple things around. Really helped.

Wide grip pull downs 5x8-10
Bent over BB row 4x10
DB pull overs 4x8-10
Seated row using long bar 4x10
Back extensions 4x8
Stiff arm pull downs 4x10-12

finished off with some shrugs.

Shoulder day today. Discouraging, my shoulders are breaking down hard and the pain to do overhead lifts is increasing. Spiral effect has my weights going down, only went up to 195 for seated militarys today, and it sucked. Going to try some stretching and some rehab exercises mixed in to see if I can improve my range of motion and decrease my discomfort.

Adriftpanda 11-05-2013 03:36 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Hoping it's just short term thing, Tom.

I've already made adjustments to my lifting, Huy, and I will likely need to make more as time goes on. Just the consequences of 35+ years of heavy lifting.

I know, right, Jay?

I am guessing that some type of "clean up" will be needed at some point, but I am putting it off as long as I have good quality of life and can do most everything in the gym. Frankly, I don't want to be on the shelf for 4-6 months from hockey when I figure I only have a few years left at competing at a higher level with the younguns.

I agree! My surgery went well, but don't remember a darn thing when they had my wife in the recovery room after I woke up. Each day gets a little better and that is a good thing. PT is not going to be fun.

Legs today. Squats, deads and all the fun stuff when it comes to legs.

No more pre workout stuff more me, came home a barfed it all up.

icehog3 11-08-2013 02:13 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Been a while since I had done supersets for back, so I went fast and furious today.

Bent Over Rows / T Bar Rows (no rest between except to walk to the other bar) 245/250, 265/250, 285/250, 305/250. Reversed the order for one last set, 270/245.

Pullups / Wide Cable Rows BW/220, BW/240, BW/260 Then Narrow Rows BW/220, BW/260.

Did a couple dead hangs after that to stretch and cash my forearms....that was enough. :r

Adriftpanda 11-08-2013 02:52 PM

Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II
 
Heavy back day. Kept it heavy with reps at 5-7.

Finished up with some arms, not much.

Adriftpanda 11-11-2013 08:02 PM
