Brent's Log of Barbell Battery « : November 04, 2013, 08:34:21 PM »
     What's up ladies and gents of SR??? First time logger here and I must say Im pretty excited. This log is overdue and it's time I started logging my workouts so I can be more efficient in my sessions. I feel like logs are necessary to remember what weights and exercises you did in your previous workouts. It is a good way to hold yourself accountable and on this site it's a great way to be critiqued as well.

     Current Stats:       
  Height- 5'9
  Weight- 179
  Body Fat- ~10-12%

     Current Bests:
  Bench- 295
  Squat- 365
  Deadlift- 455
  Clean- 255

     Goals- First of all, I think everyone should have a goal. It doesnt have to be a lifelong goal or anything but you need something to work towards. I have many goals of all types of difficulties and durations. My goals are:
- Bench 315, squat 405, and deadlift 500. I would also like to get under 10% BF. I also want to push myself out of my comfort zone and buy into this plan. Its different but it's needed. Lets get it!!

     Workout Plan- This will be my second time actually using a plan designed by someone else. The first time I used Wendler's 5-3-1 and now me and my partner are going to try Jay Cutler's Living Large mass plan. My partner wanted to give it a shot and I went a long with it. I needed a change of pace anyways. I guess we will see how it works. If your curious about the plan just Google it.

     Diet- Nothing special about my diet. I will be eating healthy but not doing any math lol. Later on I may divulge and start at least counting macros for the first time ever but nothing really to keep track of. Just 3 or 4 meals a day with a few splurges every month.

     Measurements:
  Arms- 15 and a half''
  Chest- 41''
  Legs- 23'' each
  Calves- 14 and a half''

     Supplements:
  Scivation Whey
  GNC Creatine Mono
  RCSS Myo-Blitz(almost out not sure what's next)
  ON Optimen
  Fish oil
  Purple Wraath

     Um, so I guess that is about it. Don't want to make this too complicated. Stay tuned for Arms!

Always in for a powerlifting log.  My only question is why are you running a bodybuilder's program, yet your goals are powerlifting specific?

Great set of goals.
Most problems in lifting can be solved by either pulling harder, or pushing harder.

I am also waiting on materials from ISSA. I going to start the "Elite Trainer Program" where in 8 months I will be a Certified Fitness Trainer, Nutritionist, and Sports Therapist. I will probably be sharing some of the stuff I learn and/or maybe have something cleared up that Im not 100% on. Should be fun as this is a life changer. Less than a year left in the Marine Corps then on to bigger and better things.

In for the power!!!
Any human can train with iron, but it takes a machine to destroy the iron

You don't need to be an ABSOLUTE FREAK in order to be strong, you need to work ABSOLUTELY FREAKING hard to become strong

Embrace the hate from others and make that your power to achieve the gains you love

    Alright guys so first off this is Day 2 of the program but I didnt log it cause I thought about it afterwards. It was a chest day. Here is the link of the workout but I don't have weights recorded. Im going to start the log on day two.
http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/living-large-jay-cutlers-8-week-mass-building-trainer-day-1.html

 Nov. 4 2013- Day Two: Arms

  Wake up for work and fry 3 large eggs, 3 pieces of relatively lean bacon, 2  slices of whole wheat bread. Pretty much every morning here so I will refer to it as the usual. Also popped my first Optimen and fish oil, put 4 scoops of Wraath in my gallon of water and head out. I really don't like wraath to sip all day but itll do. Lunch was two turkey and cheese sandwiches and a banana and popped 2nd multi.

 WORKOUT

Let's get it. Arms baby! 1 and a half scoops of MyoBlitz and 5g creatine pre workout. Not sure how much creatine is in there so I put my dose preworkout.

 10 minutes on treadmill starting on 6 and increasing by intervals of .5 every two minutes. Good sweat going. Light stretch.

Tricep Rope Pushdown: 3x10-12
  70x12
  80x12
  100x 10

Close Grip Bench 3x10-12
  165x12
  175x12
  185x6? Thats a little low. Glitch in the system

Dip Machine 3x10
  180x10
  200x10
  210x10

Straight Bar Pushdown 3x10-12
  100x12
  130x10
  150x9
 This was the machine with a different amount of pulleys so weight was altered.

French Press(skull crusher) 7x10 30 second rest!!!
  50lbs plus ez curl bar
 
 EZ Bar Curl 4x10-12
  50x12x2
  60x10x2

Single Arm Standing Curl 3x12
  25lbs each arm

Single Arm Hammer Preacher Curl 4x10
  25s
 
Single Arm Preacher Curl 4x10
  20s

Reverse Curl 3x10
  50lbs
 
 Wow. Can you say volume! All of this was 1 minute between sets except for the 7 set monster which was 30 seconds. I don't usually train like this and I was burning out towards the end. I wouldnt mind if I dipped below 10 reps every now and then. We will see how we feel tomorrow. Post workout shake 2 scoops whey.

  Dinner was 3 hamburgers with no bread and a pack of instant rice. Popped my last multi and called it a night.

     Nov.5- Day 3: Rest

     The usual for breakfast plus a 2 scoop whey shake. Two tuna sandwiches(one can each) and an apple for lunch. Protein shake when I got home from work then hamburger helper for dinner lol. Split multi's with each meal, fish oil with breakfast, 2 scoops whey and 5g mono in the shake and Wraath throughout the day.

     DOMS starting to kick in pretty hard already. Consumed a good amount of protein and chugged my aminos. Gotta nip this in the bud lol. One thing I MUST remember to do is cool down and stretch to drain that lactic acid out of the muscle. I have a feeling this will be the norm at first.

     Nov.6- Day 4: Back

     Back at it again(pun intended)!! This is what I consider my weakness. I can keep decent form with a squat and deadlift but my upper back is weak and holding me back.
 
   Decided to stick with the plan with deads as much as I wanted to go heavy. I need to switch it up and maybe it will strengthen my upper back if I focus on it during the lift instead of going heavy all the time and not giving my upper back a chance.
 
     I was still a tiny bit sore but plenty good enough to lift. Glad I fueled up yesterday. Hit up a cool down and good stretch today. Even rolled around on some foam which I don't do enough either. Ok, enough yap let's look at some numbers!

     WORKOUT

  Overhead Close Grip Pulldowns: 4x10 1 min rest
100x10
130x10
150x10
180x8 Used a little english for this

  Deadlifts:4x10 1:30 rest
135x10 warm up
185x10
225x10
275x10
315x10!! Took me a minute to get the reps but I got that shizz. Very happy about that. I usually don't go any higher than 5 on working sets so this was tough. I also liked hitting deads for my second exercise. I felt a lot more loose and focused.

  Bent Over Rows: 3x10 1 minute rest
135x10
145x10
155x10 Tough last set. This lift was performed with double over grip slightly wide of shoulder the shoulders. Im also BENT OVER where the bar is inches off the ground pulled to multiple points from lower chest to lower abs. Let it be known none of these lifts are performed with straps(which may change).

  Single Arm Dumbbell Row: 4x10 1 min rest
50x10
70x10
80x10
90x8 Lift performed with both feet on the ground braced by opposite arm with torso slightly above 90°.

  T Bar Row Machine: 3x10 1 min rest
90x10
100x10
110x6 Ow. Trying to catch my breath I hate leaning on that pad. Grip starting to give. Feeling it but feeling good. Pumped real nice and trying to stay focused.

  Seated Low Row With Underhand Grip: 3x10 1 min rest
100x10
120x10
140x10 with English. Safely though not wild. That aint me I know what Im doing lol.

  Back Extensions: 4x10 1 min rest
25lb plate held at chest x10x4

  High Cable Wide Grip Straight Arm Row: 7x10 30 sec rest :(
 I don't even know x10x7 lol get me out of here!!

     Ooooommmmmggggg!!! Just shoot me. Jake and I killed it today. Well deserved shake.

     DIET
  Breakfast: The usual
  Lunch: Two Ham sandwiches with cheese and pringles
  Dinner: 3 breaded chicken strips and bag of rice.
  The usual timing of supplement use.

  Overall Im happy with my grip and lower back strength. Felt solid throughout. I was gassed though this is kickin butt. Stay tuned for shoulders tomorrow which should be fun. Ran out of MyoBlitz today so will be trying something new to log and review.

Ok time to get caught up. Ive been logging just not putting it on here been kinda hectic with my Marine Corps Ball happening and blah blah blah. Happy 238th Marines!!

So ive since put it some solid workouts. Turns out my buddy skipped the first week of the program and I just found out. It did seem a little bit intermediate so whatever. Today I just set a new deadlift PR with 465. 10 lbs up. Ill be posting the video soon. This was a battle but I held strong. The program is demanding but we have been keeping up. Lets get going.

Nov.7- Shoulders

Diet: Bfast- The usual plus whey shake
         Lunch- Leftover tuna helper
         Pre- 2 scoops Cellucor Volt!! See below. 5g mono
         Post- Whey shake and banana
         Dinner- 3 breaded chicken tenders and fries.

Workout: 10 min run and stretch to warm up
Leverage Shoulder Press Iso-Hammer Strength 4x6-10
70(plate poundage per side)x10
80x10
90x8
90x5. Im ok with that.

275x12x2
285x12x2

    And Im done. Very killer workout. Huge pump going. Really liked this new stuff from Cellucor called Volt. Good pump and focus. Stamina was ok. If you 2 scoop it you get some decent dosages(it appears as this is a blend). Ill be reviewing it when Im done so I want go crazy right now. So thats it time to recover.

Nov.8
No go today. Marine Corps Ball tonight so I have much to do!!! Its been real guys if you never hear from me again.

Nov.9
Planned on maybe Getting in the gym today but it was too wild of a night. Rest up.

Nov.10 Shoulders and Triceps
Back at it again. Took a couple days to recoup and get back to 100%. I believe that when in doubt you should just rest
 I hate bad workouts. Ok the plan gets a little more intense now combining two muscle groups. Lotta volume here so let's go. ;D

Diet:Bfast- Two bowls raisen bran and 2 scoop whey shake
        Lunch- Two tuna sandwiches and apple

  Done!! Lotta fun here. Took about 2 hours to get through it all but it was fun. I had good energy and stamina throughout and had nothing better to do. I will say I have been feeling some improved hardness and fullness since ie started this. Leaned a little bit. Dropped 2 lbs. Noticing some nice vascularity in my upper chest and almost always have the front delt vein now!! Stayed tuned for deads tomorrow. Going real heavy!!!

Nov.11- Back
  So today I went in about 30 minutes early to get some heavy dead work in. My partner is a girl and doesnt really mess around with deads. Not going to hold me back though. I wanted to try a new PR and I felt up to it so let's get it!!

         Pre- 2 scoop Volt, 5g Mono

Done! Another good session. The Volt is steady and consistent so far. I really see no need to up the dosage although I may indeed try 2 and a half or 3. Im not going to even attempt 1 scoop cause the profile shows it will just not work and Im not going to waste a workout.

Still waiting on my materials from ISSA. Can't wait to begin the next chapter of my life. Till next time!! Later
