Upper Body

I. DB Bench Press
--a.8 x 50's
--b.8 x 50's
--c.7 x 50's
--d.3 x 56's
II. Pendlay Rows (barbell rows where your torso is completely parallel to the ground and the bar is deloaded each rep)
--a.8 x 115lbs.
--b.8 x 115lbs.
--c.7 x 115lbs.
--d.6 x 125lbs.
III. Military Press
--a.8 x 75lbs.
--b.7 x 80lbs.
--c.8 x 80lbs.
IV. Shrugs
--a.10 x 170lbs.
--b.10 x 190lbs.
--c.8 x 210lbs.

Reflection:
Not a bad workout. I might do some dynamic training for DB press such as the floor press to get the weight up to 56lbs in each arm. Pendlay rows are tough! Will increase weight on rows and military next time.

Legs

I. Clean to squat(deload)
--a.8 x 85 lbs.
--b.8 x 95 lbs.
II. Deadlift
--a.8 x 165 lbs.
--b.8 x 180 lbs.
--c.8 x 195 lbs.
--d.8 x 210 lbs.

Reflection:
Didn't finish workout. I didn't feel like doing 2 sets of DB squats and totally forgot about situps, which I just remembered about now . Clean form is definitely coming along. The weight of the deadlifts and reps look high compared to my last leg day, but that is because I was watching a movie and had TOO much rest time between sets. I'm going to do weighted crunches tomorrow, on my rest day. Next leg workout will more accurately show my progress because I'll remember not to turn the TV on

Coming along nicely man. Gonna be starting a routine from starting strength by Rippetoe when the book finally arrivies; been waiting like 2 or 3 weeks now-best be good. How are you teachong yourself to clean I gave it a few goes but I just can't seem to get it right.

Im thinking of attending an oly seminar or something.

I can't help but try and move the bar around me instead of moving my body around the bar it's confusing lol.

Yep. Attending one or better still look for any weight lifters retired or otherwise who live near you and politely ask.
Learn the movement by doing it and being corrected either by your self or someone else.
There is another way of breaking the lift down.

High pulls

Pull from the knees

etc.

I have seen tons of videos that explain how to do it and others that simply show people in competition doing the lift. I know my flaws and just work to correct them with light weight.

--c.6 x 56 lbs.
--d.5 x 56 lbs.

II.Double arm DB Rows
--a.8 x 40 lbs.
--b.8 x 50 lbs.
--c.7 x 56 lbs.
--d.8 x 56 lbs.

III.Dumbbell Military Press(Seated - ceiling not high enough)

Awesome workout. Much better with a barbell, but I still had a lot of success today. Definitely need a barbell for shrugs. And speaking of shrugs, I just started breathing in on the upward phase...silly me

Leg Workout

I. Clean to front squats - deload(technique training)
--a.8 x 95 lbs.
--b.7 x 105 lbs.

II. Deadlifts
--a.8 x 165 lbs.
--b.8 x 180 lbs.
--c.8 x 195 lbs.
--d.8 x 215 lbs.

III. Romanian Deadlifts
--a.8 x 155 lbs.
--b.7 x 170 lbs.

Reflection: Set a new personal record for deadlifts; 8 x 215 lbs...The best I got was 3 reps for that weight. Form for squats and cleans weren't the greatest, I need to spend more time warming up next session. I will actually be happy to spend my money on more 25lb plates

BTW found out my scale was off and I'm really still 158...I believed in the 168 before because I looked and felt bigger. Oh well, I'd rather weigh the same and feel bigger than feel the same and weigh more...
