2009 second workout

December 31, 2009

Goblet squats with 27kg dumbbell 120 reps. sweat like a pig
wanted to do side bends but my lower back is sending me some signals

will do the birddogs, spinal erector glute strengthening laters.

in 2009 i lifted 2Xbw
finally mastered the chin up. can do up to +16kg for 4
benched BW
got stronger
lost 10kg and gained it back in muscle
lost 4 inches off my waist

BUT all this are insignificant stuff

I also lost a loved one. I lost my grandmother. I wish she is somewhere and happy right now.
I also want my family to be healthy happy and safe for 2010 and onwards.

because family is what is best in life

2010 I’m feeling good baby

Chin Ups

December 31, 2009

Well if you notice, how i structure my workouts, usually around one of two big compounds and stuff..

For today, i loaded up my 14.5kg dumbbell, took my Spud Inc dip belt and went to the park.

Plate Halos
Scap Push Ups
Weighted chins 10×3 (70 seconds rest)
reality : 3/3/3/3/3/3/3/2/2/2=27 reps. so i + 1/2

rest 6 minutes, used 12kg dumbbell between knees.
Chins again 4/3/4/3/2/1/2/1/ = 20 reps, 1 mins rest
Bw chins 6,5.

total chin up today 61

Din’t row because my lower back is still busted. Rehab work

17.5kg dumbbell swings 60/40 = 100 reps 3 mins rest
17.5kg dumbbell swing 1 arm, 10 each.

going out now. feel like doing goblet squats, strict ones and maybe more pull ups tonight, the above was a 11am workout. see how it goes.

I still feel good and I’m confident of working out this injury , but i need to be patient. go back to my zerchers and take 20% off my 1Rm, and work on it for a month. get ready. but all these will be in 2 weeks. for now

chin ups , swings , push ups, goblets will be my bread and butter

Not smart enough

December 30, 2009

Apparently the previous workout, where i replicate my max effort deadlift was a dumb decision. I’m still weak and my body is not ready yet, but i was spurred on the moment to pulled it.

Thou shall always remember that i have a slip disc before 4 years ago and that took some sports out of me, this year was my fittest and strongest years, but that deadlift took some out of me, the only way is to take something back. I must learn to stop, call it a day, and do something else.

learn man learn, thats the only way to progress.

my lower back hurts a little on the left, not a little, hurts a lot, i been doing my physiotheraphy drills.

putting lotsa birddogs. and cat stretches. gonna do chins tmr. but proper programming is a must.

I’ll rehab it back. i been thinking of pure technique goblets and swings got my lower body for awhile

workout for these two days,
Spinal decompressions
Birddogs
Cat stretchs

Shoulder

December 27, 2009

Well it’s one of those sundays. this weekend my friends bailed on me both times. but it’s okay, real  reasons of course, you can’t train when u’re hungover , you can’t ball when you’re drunk.
Left for myself. In my room. there was only one thing to do.

Work on my shoulders again. my weakest link in the chain of movements, followed by my pushing ability.

The Stick on whole Body
Y,T,W,L 1 X12 ( was suppose to do 2 X12 )
Hindu pushups -10
12kg DB neutral grip standing press 1 X10
14kg DB  1 X10

Primary set
17kg DB 1 arm press . 6/6/6/7/7    ->1 min 30 seconds rest
14kg DB standing press Normal grip 2 X10

Hindu Push ups 100 reps

shoulder mobility felt awesome. dieselcrew is where it’s at for ur mobility needs

now to rest. Won’t be training on tues/wed for a full totally no iron no bw . still contemplating weighted chins tmr. I got my lower body and my push covered.

where the weak link this week? you got it, it’s my abs my obliques . 3 times a week n i get none. i do lotsa compound that hit the core. but weighted strength needs to be address. Tmr i shall dragon flag it through wif my weighted side bends with straps so be it.

10 hours after my workout today. stepped out of the shower. 1 arm shoulder press 19.5kg 1×3 both arms =))

en route to the quest of a 60kg military press.

oh and i tried fancy shmancy pullups explode to chin ups , got a few reps? and i fell down almost on my face. Bleachers
