Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

5/31/18
Deadlifts 4x3x225
Seated press 4 to 5 sets with 70 on each side x 5-7
Leg raises 3x12
Hamstring curls and hip thrusts on a big exercise ball 3x10

Felt super weak today and out of it. Honestly 225 felt like 365 normally feels. I definitely havent recovered all the way yet. I think I need to stretch way more too and get loose again. I dont know if taking antibiotics before hand had anything to do with it.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

6/4/2018
squats 5x4x265
deadlifts 4x3x315
shoulder press machine x45 each side 4x10
**** load of core stuff, think I did like 15 sets or so total of different exercises.

Everything felt super hard, still don't feel recovered or 100% myself but decided to stop being a little ***** and just get in there and lift. Need to figure out what program to start next instead of freestyling and also implement core stuff every work out.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

Lots of times if your big lifts feel heavier than normal, your setup is too loose. Tighten up all over.

Yea that sounds accurate. I think since having the wisdom teeth removed, I'm having a hard time taking as big of a breath as I used to and bracing my core as hard. And I think I'm subconsciously scared of the weights and injuring myself so it's causing me to not be as aggressive maybe. It was a really frustrating experience.

Would it be a good idea to try to take a big breath through my nose instead of my mouth? I normally do it through my mouth, but the bottom part doesn't feel fully healed yet.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

yeah, if that works for you, do it.

I remember how painful that can be. When mine were removed, they were impacted, growing sideways into the teeth next to them. Some had to come out in little pieces. I got dry sockets and was on pain pills for a week after that.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

6/5/2018
stationary bike for 10-15 minutes
deadlifts 4x3x315, did some sets with 225 too.
lat pull downs 5x8
leg raises 4x10-15
hanging sit ups 2x10ish

after that my abs were too damn sore and it was too painful so I just called it. I think before my body was so used to the insane volume I would give it and recovered really fast because I feel insanely sore at the moment and I haven't felt like this since like the first week in the gym.

I got to do more of the mike robertson exercises, got to re-watch some of the tutorials since I already forgot since last time I watched. I have been slacking with stretching as well so that might be why I'm more sore. Anyways I think few weeks and I will be back to normal I hope.

That sounds super ****ty, I was lucky and mine came out really easily. The Dr even made a comment about wow you are really healthy, you look like you are in good shape and have strong bones. I got two removed on the same side, the top feels completely fine but the bottom part doesn't seem like the gum is like fully healed. I have been eating normal and I even was drinking through a straw the other day but it still feels super ****ing weird taking a big breath through the mouth.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

6/7/2018
squats 3x12x205
seated press 3x12x70 on each side
flies with cables 3x12 @8,9,10

Another difficult workout, tbh I didn't even feel like going in and went in later than normal but ultimately decided that in order to be successful I have to get my reps in and get back on the grind. I know that's what separates the elite champions from average guys like myself so I had to remind myself that today.

I'm pretty certain that my body will get used to training again, I just have to keep pushing myself and do a better job with the variables I can control.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

6/8/2018
deadlifts 3x12,11,9 x 275 super setted with one arm shoulder press 3x 12 x 45
one arm db curls 3 x 12 x 15lbs, 20lbs, 20lbs.
super set of hanging leg raises 3x10 and weighted ab crunches with a rope 3x10-12 x 72.5

really tough quick but effective work out. I really think doing more core work will pay off eventually. I was working out with my buddy who has been doing a lot of abs lately and he was able to do windshield wipers and i was failing them.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

6/11/2018
squats 2x5x225, 2x5x245, 2x5x265, 3x4x275
deadlifts 2x5x225, 2x4x275, 2 or 3x3-4x315 dont remember exactly.
rope triceps extensions 3x10 @7

it was supposed to be a light day but of course every ****ing bar and squat rack was taken so i asked this one dude to work in with him and just followed whatever he did. I think I'm going to switch to another gym pretty soon because I'm getting sick of always waiting.

This is my biggest gripe, but I get such a good deal right now I've just been enduring the crowdedness.

That's how I have been justifying it as well and also since I work out around 11am, it really wasn't that bad as when I used to work out with my buddy at 5-6pm. I mean I really enjoy spending time in the gym but I'm costing myself EV in other areas by spending too much time there. I think the extra $40 or so I would be paying for a membership at this other place would definitely be worth it.

6/16/2018
squats 3x10x225
bench press 3x10x135
lateral raises 3x10 w 15lbs dbs
incline shrugs 3x10 w 50s

did some stuff on 6/13 or 6/14 but don't really remember exactly what. I have started lifting at a new gym as well, it's a bit more expensive but I'm pretty sure it will be worth it.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

9/30/2018
pull ups 3x8,7,6
close grip lat pull downs 4x20x70 didnt get all of my reps on the last 2 sets
one arm db row 4x20x30 failed on the reps again
one arm db twisting curl super setted with two arms db curls 4x20x10, 4x20x5
two arm cable curls 4x20x40 or 45 super setted with lying leg raises 4x20

this type of training feels a lot different to me than what I'm used to even before, it's kind of like conditioning too because we are not taking very long breaks.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

Quick update: I'm going in pretty much every day now but haven't really felt like logging it. Life has been pretty stressful so having the gym back in my life has definitely been a positive. I have gained back 4-5lbs and slowly getting back my strength and being more used to working out again.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

2/16/2019

I guess it's as good time as ever to post another update. I have been doing some heavy squats and deadlifts lately so it kind of reminded me of this thread. Despite not really posting updates i have been going super regularly since getting back into the gym. In the last week i have hit 275 4x5 on squats, 295 for like 3 sets, and also hit 385 on the deadlift which felt super easy. I have a clip of it so maybe will upload it later. I ended up failing 405 though, it got going but i couldnt finish it off so i think im pretty damn close to 405.

My buddy and I have just kind of been freestyling our work out plan but it been working super well. Of course, when I say free styling i dont mean we are just doing random exercises for 2 sets like the noobs. I have also been including a lot more upper body work and shoulder work while hitting abs just about every work out almost. For that I have been using just mostly dumbbells just because it feels so much better on the wrist. One day I tried benching and it just immediately gave me pain so I pretty much cut out regular bench press out of my program.

Kind of funny story actually from today, I was doing incline DB press with 60s for like 4 sets. This dude comes over who was actually looking pretty muscular and big, so then I see him grab the 30s and do flat db press. Next thing I notice is after like 1 set of warm ups, he grabs the 70s and I'm thinking to myself damn he is about to put up some big boy weights. Then he goes to do his set...He gets them up in the air and yells "GOT IT" super loud as if someone was spotting him then barely gets like 3 reps while really struggling super hard and it's probably generous to call them reps. Obviously, my read was off quite a bit here haha.

Re: Luvinurmoney's training log

385 looked easy. Tighten your lats before you pull and lead with your chest. 405 will be easy if you get that figured out a little better.
