weights on a sun burned back sux!!

looks like you got a good shoulder workout in!
Yes it does. Was supposed to hit 225 yesterday but there was no way I could get my shoulders into position without grinding against the bar….and that wasn't happening.

Still killing it Eric. :thumbsup:

DL, back and a little bi's


DL
135x10
185x5
225x3
265x8x3

Lat pulldown wide grip
100x12
110x10
120x10
130x8
140x6
150x4
100x10 <-barely, did right after the 150

Machine row
120x10,10,10,10

Standing DB bicep curls
25x10,10,10
immediately followed by
15x10
10x10

Down to 199.2. Been rather drastic with this cut, strength is starting to be impacted but I like what it's doing to my waistline.
Those sets of 265, which is 80% of my max, were brutal.

From here on out, each 5lbs down I'm going to evaluate how I look and feel. Being honest with myself, I figure to get to the state of leanness I am looking for would require at least another 15lbs (or more!) off my current BW. Not sure I really want to go all the way down around 185 (or even lower). But, that's why I will evaluate after every 5lbs lost. 

Whatever happens, it will be interesting to transition to maintenance (or attempting to find out what that is) for at least a month or six weeks. After that a long slow bulk. Thinking about 250-300 over, hopefully starting in September. Time will tell.

Monday July 20, 2015

Legs and shoulders

Leg press
90x15
180x10
270x10
360x10,10,10,10

Bulgarian lunges
30lb in each hand, discovered my stabilizing muscles are not strong enough at this point  :(
So...
BWx10, 10, 10 <-even these had me losing my balance..sigh, lots of work to do

BB standing OHP
45x10
65x10
85x6
115x5,5

DB shoulder press
40x10,10,10

Face pulls
20x30
30x20
50x10,10,10,10

Front delt raise
15x10,10,10
with
Side delt raise
15x10,10,10

Felt good today, not too tired, but the weights didn't want to cooperate much. Everything felt heavy. Bulgarian lunges were a fiasco with weights. Can't believe I had to do just BW and was losing balance with just that! More work is needed....

I did walking barbell lunges last night and looked like an idiot. Lunges fucking suck and belong in exercise hell.
