    Do they have any kind of a platform or box to stand on? What about a couple of 45 lb plates?

    I was telling adam that 2 Saturdays ago when I had my other shitty hangover. I was low on calories and wasnt drinking water. Plus, since the drinking day is my cheat day, I had some sodium enriched foods too to boot. Now this last Sat., I did supplement water in between drinks. The only way to know is to drink with someone as lean as me. I have never, ever done that and that would be a closer comparison to see if I personally cant take it anymore. To find someone lean is one thing, they gotta be around the same age, drink what I drink, etc to get a close comparison.

    About LA Fitness, I think we went at prime time too. No crowds really and no waits. Spencer came there in his tight Under Armour shirt. I guess I cant make fun because when I noticed I started having muscle added to my dinky frame (about 180lbs) I wore tight shirts. I think it was 'in' at the time so I did get a lot of pussy. I have some Dri Fit shirts that I wear a lot to the gym, but I feel weird when I wear the tighter ones. Once you start sweating, they do feel cool as fuck. However, Spencer looked like he didnt get his size (the tight ones I have are larges) and he had a gut sticking through. I think were gonna here some serious news about him soon if he keeps up the juice.

    Ryan, ahhh, well its good that he shows up to the gym, but hes never made a goal on his own. I think he goes just to say he went. When he achieves DOMS, hell feel reassured that he did well that day, which he may have, but hell still just do what he does. I admire those that go to a gym, but if youre not doing anything really, then at the least, make a maintenance program.

    Triple, yea, I remember having to stand on plates to do rack pulls at UF. Worked fine and I only needed 2 plates.

    Warm ups..
    Cable crunch

    Unilateral HS Row
    2 plates for 2 sets, 6 reps
    3 plates for 2 sets. 5 reps
    4 plates + 25lbs for 5 sets, 5 reps (60 sec RI)

    T- bar Row
    3 plates for 5 reps
    4 plates for 2 sets, 3 reps
    4 plates + 25lbs for 8 sets, 3 reps (45 sec RI)

    Chin Ups
    BW for 4 sets, 6 reps (30 sec RI)

    Unilateral Preacher DB Hammer Curl
    40lb DBs for 3 sets, 5 reps (30 sec RI; 1 RP on left)

    Seated Alternating Hammer DB Curl
    30lb DBs for 3 sets, 8 reps (30 sec RI)

    Static


    Son of a bitch! Why the fuck didnt I look closer at last week's last night. Jesus christ, I left the gym thinking I did a lot better than last week. NOPE.

    Well, Unilaterals did go up and it felt a lil tough. Could go up an additional 5lbs, but now, with these new fucking plates, I am running out of room! Actually, I dont know if I can put on an extra 5 pounds. I may have to go up to 35s and thats it. I can put a 5th plate on there, but once that happens, I am tapped out.

    T-bars got me tired at first, but I think it was just because of the change of exercises. I didnt know what to put on, so I am alright with putting a lil less weight on, but the RIs are what are annoying. Now, I dont know if I am remembering correctly..

    Chins were down in volume cuz I was going to do an extra curl, which I did. I am saving more calories for the stadium in 2 hours.

    I think Spencer's days are numbered anyway, and he doesn't seem to give a shit. He was/is doing roxy's, drinking a shitload, doing waaaay too much gear, had no clue what PCT was when I asked him what he had planned. His doctor even asked him what the fuck he was doing to his liver. Me and Ryan were actually talking about that yesterday. He's not sunburned in all of his pictures on Facebook, it's his blood pressure going through the roof. I even commented on one of his Facebook pictures "Spencer's head exploded shortly after." Ryan was laughing his ass off about that yesterday. It's sad really.

    275lbs for 2 sets, 3 reps

    Get a load of this shit..

    I walk in feeling positive as all hell. Got a good feeling about me and I slowly turn up the notch with deadlifts. I get em, all of them. Then I go to deadlift walk my bar onto the racks to prepare the bar for Good Mornings, but on the first step, my back is not happy. I could not do GMs. I could so caveman though...with pain.

    When I got to eliptical, I couldnt finish my 15min goal. I stretched, felt better, I walked to my car, felt worse, sat down, oddly-felt better, got out of car, felt worse. Took 2 pain killers and now 4 aspirins. I hate taking anything after a workout. Motherfucker.

    But I do know...coulda been worse.

    Warm ups..
    Planks on ball
    Cable Crunches

    Bench Press
    135lbs for 2 sets, 6 reps
    225lbs for 2 sets, 5 reps
    245lbs for 3 reps
    285lbs for 3 sets, 3 reps (60 sec RI)

    Standing OH DB Press
    60lb DBs for 5 sets, 5, 5, 5, 4, 2 reps (30 sec RI)

    Close Grip Bench
    185lbs for 2 sets, 6, 2?! reps (30 sec RI)

    Cable Pushdown
    145lbs for 3 sets, 6 reps (30 sec RI)

    Caveman
    Eliptical for 15 min

    Static Stretched


    Ok, I was gonna do singles, but I had no spot. No, actually, I was going to switch to DBs first for singles, but with my back, I am not deadlifting that shit 10 times into position.

    Bench was solid. Felt easy, then the wall came up. This has always been my Achilles heal.

    So I lost some steam with the OHs. BFD. Close Grip was Jesus, I guess its cuz its a compound movement and 30 sec isnt enough, fuck, I dont know. I used to rock this shit. I want to try it again with a lighter weight. With cutting, doing arms is mostly a dumb idea. It goes along with spot reduction myths. Buuuuuuut, in high school, all I did was arms and they did grow. I also did forearm days and my shit looks great. So, there may be some truth to spot enhancing, as long as you still do compounds.

    awesome intensity for the Tbar Row.

    Did you do T bar as in one side of an olympic bar and other end in a corner or something or the T bar machine? I know the olympic bar T bar rows I feel it in the lower lats while the machine, across top thru middle.

    Damn, I never thought of that! Perhaps it was the massive straw that broke the camel toes back.

    There we gooooo. Nicer weight. It was jusssst about right too.

    Again, I did the lunges cuz I didnt want to run into people. Gonna have to do them next time cuz I dont like this shit. Doing lunges in a cage sucks.

    I threw in some cavemen cuz I wanted to just gock at this girl. God damn these girls are hot. Talked to her afterward and she said she was a freshman! Jesus christ, she had a fucking rock hard body but she looked older than a freshman. Doesnt mean shes 18, but holy shit anyway.
