Comments: Using a barbell for shrugs next time - didn't feel safe having to deadlift the trap bar for each set. Afraid to get stuck in the hole during squats, so I'm going to ask someone to spot me during last set or two. I like the variation of curls I did today, and I'll do them for now on.

Comments: Good workout. Used rack to do bench press. Bench is weak right now, hopefully I'll move up quickly - haven't done barbell press in about a year. I was burned out by the 4th set of chin-ups because I did 2 sets of weighted chin-ups and I was giving myself less time in between sets than usual. Good job on arnold press and skull crushers

Upper Body

I. Barbell Bench Press
--A.8 x 135lbs
--B.5 x 135lbs
--C.5 x 135lbs
--D.4 x 135lbs

II. Weighted Chin-Ups (supine)
--A.7 x 20lbs
--B.4 x 20lbs
--C.4 x 10lbs
--D.6 x BW

III. Arnold Press
--A.8 x 40's
--B.7 x 45's
--C.5 x 45's
--D.4 x 45's

IV. Skull Crushers
--A.10 x 55lbs
--B.7 x 60lbs
--C.7 x 60lbs
--D.7 x 60lbs

Comments: I always tell myself after a set where I don't hit at least 5 reps to keep the weight and that I'll find it in myself to hit 6 reps next set...which obviously doesn't always happen. It's an optimistic attitude, but next time I find myself not hitting the rep target, I should just lower the weight regardless and then re-raise it if I go above 8 reps on that lower weight.

Lower Body

I. Leg Press (squat rack occupied)
--A.8 x 270lbs
--B.8 x 280lbs
--C.8 x 290lbs
--D.8 x 300lbs

II. Dumbbell Snatches
--A.8,8 x 55lbs
--B.8,8 x 60lbs
--C.7,7 x 65lbs

III. Shrugs supersetted with barbell curls
--A.8 x 260lbs | 10 x 60lbs
--B.8 x 270lbs | 7 x 70lbs
--C.8 x 280lbs | 6 x 70lbs

Comments: Rushed workout and cut sets because I had plans. Didn't have enough time to wait for squat rack, so I just used the leg press. On the shrugs my grip felt much, much stronger and so did my traps. When I get to the last 2 sets of snatches, I really find it in myself to use explosive power in my legs to get that weight up, and I hardly feel it in my upper body. I'll try to get the same explosiveness on my earlier sets.

I'm gaining weight but I'm also staying lean. My chest has gotten a bit bigger and my stomach is more cut. I'm also getting stronger...weighted chin-ups! And my thighs are always growing; every few months I notice that they grew bigger . I think age has a lot to do with it - my body is developing and I'm helping to shape it the way I want by working out.
