Upper body - at friend's house

I. DB Bench Press
--a.8 x 50's
--b.7 x 50's
--c.6 x 56's
--d.5 x 56's

II. Bent-over Barbell Rows (olympic bar)
--a.8 x 135 lbs.
--b.8 x 135 lbs.
--c.7 x 145 lbs.
--d.6 x 145 lbs.

III. Military Press
--a.10 x 70 lbs. - too many reps
--b.8 x 80 lbs.
--c.7 x 95 lbs.

IV. Shrugs (olympic bar)
--a.10 x 170 lbs.
--b.8 x 190 lbs.
--c.8 x 230 lbs.

Reflection: I was at my friend's house for this workout. Started barbell rows again, and I'm weak at it . I couldn't believe how much weight/reps I got out of military press. Before doing shrugs today, I knew that I could do a lot of weight. It's never really been hard to shrug it, but at 230 it was tough to keep my grip...maybe it was just his slippery bar. It feels like my strength has just soared in the past few weeks out of no where. I am probably going to go buy 2 or 4 more 25lb plates tomorrow, or at least within the week.

My sister gave me a pull-up/chin-up bar for christmas Now I can do pull-ups for back instead of bent over rows. When I used to do them I got the biggest pump in my whole upper body and my back felt great...Can't wait to set it up and use it

Legs

I. Deadlifts
--a.8 x 175 lbs.
--b.8 x 190 lbs.
--c.8 x 205 lbs.
--d.8 x 220 lbs.

II. Romanian Deadlifts
--a.8 x 155 lbs.
--b.8 x 165 lbs.
--c.8 x 175 lbs.

Reflection: Had a little 4-day break out of Christmas spirit . Another great workout. I'm in deadlift heaven right now . I am searching for a squat rack on eBay, preferably a portable one to save space. This routine will stay until I get a rack. I will see how the next few sessions pan out to decide whether to add another set on romanian's. Going to start doing crunches and cardio starting tomorrow

Upper Body

I. Weighted Dips - was finally inovative enough to come up how to make a dips station
--a.10 x BW
--b.8 x +10 lbs.
--c.8 x +10 lbs.
--d.6 x +15 lbs.

II. Pull-ups/Chin-ups
--a.8 x BW (P)
--b.8 x BW (C)
--c.6 x BW (P)
--d.5 x BW (C)

III. Military Press
--a.8 x 85 lbs.
--b.7 x 95 lbs.
--c.7 x 95 lbs.

IV. Shrugs
--a.9 x 185 lbs.
--b.8 x 205 lbs.
--c.8 x 225 lbs.

Reflection: Finally bought more weight today - I now have about 280lbs. at my disposal. I made a dips station by putting two chairs together and stabilizing them with 75lbs on each chair. Dips took a lot out of me, and my whole upper body was pumped before even reaching pull-ups/chin-ups; once I get used to both(dips,pull&chin), I will be able to add more weight/reps to each exercise. My chest was twice as pumped after dips as it would have been after doing DB press. I am getting stronger and stronger in military press. Overall good workout.

Lower Body

I. Conventional Deadlifts
--A.8 x 180lbs.
--B.8 x 195lbs.
--C.8 x 210lbs.
--D.7 x 230lbs.

II. Romanian Deadlifts
--A.8 x 160lbs.
--B.8 x 170lbs.
--C.8 x 180lbs.

Reflection: I'm pushing myself and seeing results. Hope this strength, (and hopefully growth), spurt lasts for a very long time. I'm improving every single workout, in every single exercise.

Upper Body

I. Weighted Dips
--a.8 x 10 lbs.
--b.8 x 13 lbs.
--c.8 x 15 lbs.
--d.8 x 18 lbs.

II. Chin-ups (bar not wide enough for pull-ups)
--a.8 x BW
--b.8 x BW
--c.6 x BW
--d.5 x BW

III. Military Press
--a.8 x 90 lbs.
--b.7 x 95 lbs.
--c.4 x 100 lbs.

IV. Shrugs
--a.8 x 200 lbs.
--b.8 x 215 lbs.
--c.8 x 230 lbs.

Reflection: Great job on dips and chins - feel I'm improving. Upped weight on all sets of military press; I'll get 6 reps for 100lbs. next time. Chins are very hard to do after dips...but I can still see myself shooting up in weight in weighted dips and being ready to do weighted chins soon to come.

--d.8 x 235lbs

II. Romanian Deadlifts
--A.8 x 165lbs.
--B.8 x 175lbs.

Reflection: Pretty intense workout. Note the date is not incorrect, I had this log written down in my notebook but hadn't gotten around to posting it here until now.

I. Weighted Dips
--A.10 x 13lbs.
--B.8 x 16lbs.
--C.8 x 19lbs.
--D.7 x 22lbs

II. Chin-ups
--A.8 x BW
--B.8 x BW
--C.6 x BW
--D.3+1+1 x BW (about 5-10s rest to get more reps)

III. Military Press (stopped using legs)
--A.8 x 85lbs.
--B.6 x 85lbs.
--C.6 x 85lbs.

IV. Shrugs
--A.8 x 205lbs.
--B.8 x 220lbs.
--C.8 x 235lbs.

Reflection: Dips went well. Chins are very hard, but its a skill that I have to build up. I faced the music and lowered the weight of military press. I don't feel that I'm advanced enough to be using my legs for that little extra push, and I feel as though I am better off not doing so at this point. It is probably good for plateau breaking, though.

Goodwork on the chins. When I first started doing pull ups and chin up I would have one session where I did 3 rounds with heavy weights on me to the extent I could only knock out 5-8 reps in a set before failing.

But then when I next came to do them in another workout I would do 3 sets of BW and go to failure. I picked this up from somewhere else but it is a great way to increase the amount of pull/chin ups you can do.
