Please, I'm a man of principle. Curls at the END of the bro workout.

Warmup
Banded pull aparts
Stomach to wall handstands

Row 155x5,Pause Bench 155x1, 15x russian twists 35 pounds, curl 60x8
Row 155x5,Pause Bench 155x1, 15x russian twists 35 pounds, curl 60x8
Row 155x5,Pause Bench 155x1, 15x russian twists 35 pounds, curl 60x8

Wide grip row 135x8, Close bench paused 135x3, curl 55x4

Reps not touching the chest all the time? That calls for paused bench reps.

7 bar dips, JM press 85x6, 1 plyo pushup

(at this point the 6 am conjugate people came in and took the rack so I moved)

8 p bar dips, 4 diamond pushups, 4 chinups
7 p bar dips, 3 diamond pushups, 3 chinups

Triceps I hardly knew ye.


Notes:

Waited an hour in the snow for a bus, never showed. Drove a half mile to the hardware store and bought a snow shovel, shoveled for 90ish minutes while listening to an audiobook, then spent the rest of the day indoors working on 3d.


Great Job!

Still snow on the ground, but roads are normal. Woke up outside of a sleep cycle or something, im friggin tired. Lets eat more magic preworkout powder and hit the gym. My shin hurts.

Warmup
Belt squat machine, 45 pounds: 100 marching steps and 20 good mornings
MYTRL


Squats, Ab mat situps/hanging leg raises
215lb belted front squatx3, 8 hanging leg raises
215lb belted front squatx3, 8 hanging leg raises
215lb belted front squatx3, 20 ab mat situps, so sore
215lb belted front squatx3, 20 ab mat situps
(At this point I was like damn, these are tough and im not sure if I am even hitting depth.)
210lb belted front squatx4, 20 ab mat situps
205lb belted front squatx5, 20 ab mat situps
Unbelted paused front squat 185x2
Unbelted paused front squat 185x2
Unbelted paused front squat 185x3

Did these in a monolift, but the hooks were facing toward the back of the machine so I had little to no room behind me. While that was probably a good thing, I felt claustrophobic and cramped.



Ab finisher
Look up 'Frank Medrano - Killer Core Great finisher' for this. He makes it look easy, plank walking, opposite arm to leg plank crunches....it was hard. I did most of the reps then I did two sets of 5 chinups and was done.



Notes:

Long boring work day followed by rings in my friends garage. I dare say I'm getting slightly stronger, had fun with the trx cables doing upside down iron cross holds and front lever work. Shoulders=done. Made him try the core finisher too. My leg where I hit the box jump is all swollen and gross.


Great Job!

How much snow did you have? We only had a couple of inches. All my friends had more. I was a bit bummed, I was hoping for more. 

Hope the shin heals soon.

Nah I guess trx was the wrong term. I think its actually called a total gym, it has a sliding seat you can put at a low angle and then cable yourself up.

Took too long and worked out right up until my deadline to catch the bus, and left my parallettes and kettlebell out. Someone who works at the gym took a picture and sent it me on facebook aaaand I felt like a terrible scumbag for most of the afternoon. Apparently it was national pizza day, so I stopped by trader joes and got some tasty dough.

It was delicious.

Notes:

I forgot my work password this morning because I had to change it over the weekend and my fingers didnt have time to get it. So that was a fun morning. On top of my leg randomly giving out after trying to run on sunday, I was briefly engulfed in the cloak of unfathomable sadness. I pulled myself out and reminded myself that feelings are hard, but man, what a monday. At least this whole fasting thing makes food easy. Being uncomfortably full in the evenings can be rough though, at least unlike college I wake up with the best kind of gainz.


Great Job!

Riding the deadlift PR high, I had a fine morning, then a good quick rings workout at my friends place after my day at work....then my car broken down on the highway home. Descended into mental madness after waiting 3.5 hours in my car for a tow. Ate half a cold ribeye before going to bad far past my bedtime. Happy valentines day!

Warmup
Banded pull aparts
Controlled shoulder articular rotations

JM Presss 85x5
JM Presss 85x5

Then I did 100 banded pull aparts and was sore.


Right shoulder is getting impinged. Scheduled a massage for the evening, which of course was at the gym.


Had a few minutes before my massage at 5, so I worked on my glutes:

Barbell glute thrust
370x5
410x3
435x1

I got a strong booty.




Notes:

Lots of carbs today, different colors of sweet potatoes and entirely too much oats. So. Full. PT looked at my leg and gave me things to do, including a return to running protocol. Today was my first walk run, 1 minute run/4 min walk for 25 minutes. Used it on the way home since my cars still out of commission. Went great, and I can still walk! Got the 'I'm not hungry' from my lady at dinnertime, so I had pancakes covered in peanut butter. Adulting.



Great Job!

It went by quick though and I walked home in the pitter patter of rain. Managed to finished a ton of unwraps for my 3d environment and that felt awesome. Watched some boardwalk empire and ate 8+ ounces of amazing sous vide steak.

Back to the gym!




DOUBLE GYM THURSDAY

Came back because gains. And I wanted to eat too much later.

Barbell Row with fat grips, pullups
105x5, 4 bodyweight pullups
125x3, 5 bodyweight pullups
135x5, 3 bodyweight pullups
130x3, 3 bodyweight pullups
125x5, 1 pitiful pullup
115x3
110x5
100x5

Could have used an axle bar, just to say I did axle rows, but I mean, I had my fat grips with me.

Incline DB curls

fat grip 15lb curlx20, 20lbx10, 25lbx5
rest and think about life
25lbx10, 20lbx13, fat grip 15lbx15


Did some more hammer curls, and rear delt raises, then finished with some ab work: 4x3 toes to bar, then 5x12 GHD side situps. Just the WORST. Gym owner told me to lock up, so I put an erasure playlist on his pandora since I couldnt get just the song from robot unicorn attack to loop over and over. 

After the gym, I walked about a mile past the mall to KATSU BURGER. Where I broke my fast around 2pm with this monstrosity of beef chicken and pork katsu:


16790073_233090157154002_412846906195469


It was bigger than my face, ridiculously messy, and hard to eat. It was ok. Really enjoyed the wasabi mayo though. Not sure if it was worth the stress my knee took from walking 2.5 miles that afternoon, my leg was seriously hurting. At least it was sunny and nice.




Believe it or not I was actually hungry later. And here I thought Id never want to see food again.





Great Job!

How did you even get your mouth around that burger? I've seen those Katsu burger places around and wondered what they were.

I ate it one quarter at a time, even still, it did not compress down to human mouth size and had to be attacked from the size
