    Powerlifting gone 180

    I am starting a journal to keep track of my workouts cardio and pr's. My goals are to drop a couple pounds and gain strength.

    Stats
    wieght: 211.5
    hieght: 5ft, 11in
    bench: 205
    squat: 315
    Deadlift: 365

    I am running a 3 day split

    Tuesday
    Bench press: 5x5(175) 3x3(185)
    Floor dumbell press w/ 1 second pause at bottom 3x10(50)
    tricep dumbell extensions 3x10(25)
    tricep pushdowns with rope 3x10(30)

    Prior to tuesday i haddnt lifted for 12 days(christmas break) so i was unsure if i could even finish my first 5 sets but i got it done witch was new pr for me but my arms were dead during the rest of my workout. I got 10,9,8 for the floor press, 10,8,6 for the extensions and i completed the pushdowns.

    Good lookin w/o, but alot of volume imo!!! I agree on the HIIT, I also have asthma, and it can be hard!!! Stick with it though, you'll be glad you did!!!

    You might want to check this out in the Diet forum, but I am under the impression if you are trying to lose weight, cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is best.

    well i woke up this mourning and i didnt run because i thought i would have a leg workout today, so i wanted to keep them fresh but turns out i was wrong

    the workout was an upper body one consisting of:

    Rack Lockouts
    1x5 (205)
    1x5 (225)
    1x3 (245)
    1x3 (265)

    Close-grip bench press
    3x8 (155)

    Clean and press dumbells
    3x10(30)

    Hammer pulldowns
    3x10 (55 on each side)

    overall it was a good workout but my chest was sore going into it and now it is sore as a mofo. The clean and preses were also hard as a biotch
    i had a PWO shake of 2 scoops whey with 8 once water and a couple pieces of chdder chesse later on

    Some would argue that cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach should be used only as a last resort - the risk of losing LBM is very high during this time. It may be best to consume at least something first - a shake or something with some carbs and protein (not really sure on what it should include, you'd have to ask someone else or check out the diet and nutrition section).
    Push yourself. Enjoy yourself. Be yourself.
