02/05/14
Weight: ???
ISF: stupid sore on back/shoulders/quads
Diet: 65g supp protein, 7/10


Boxing Practice
- 15 minutes jump rope warmup (I suck lol)

- 1 hour calisthenics + conditioning consisting of sprints, relay sprints, burpees, pushups, situps, leg raises, planks, mountain climbers, squat jumps, wall sits, medicine ball passing, and a bunch of bullshit in general. Was almost about to ask for a break/make an excuse in between some liners, felt like throwing up and lightheaded and all that weak shit -glad I pushed through...my conditioning is WEAK.

- 30 minutes technique work that was all repetition of yesterday (stance, jabs, crosses). Pretty boring because it was old but guess it was necessary.

- 30 minutes more calisthenics and shoulder death isos (arm circles, claps overhead, bunch of that stuff without dropping arms)



Notes:
- Abs got hit hard today with burpees and jacks, etc.
- I f*cking hate conditioning but need it so whatever
- There's a big invitational (considered a pretty big biggest collegiate boxing event on the East coast), called Rumble at Ritchie, on March 1st. of course I'm in no shape to actually compete, but looking forward to dropping by and watching some fights. Army, Penn State, West Virginia, UNC, and others are all headed here, should be cool.



The absolute, #1 pump up song in the world (unfortunately I've overplayed it, as much as I tried to moderate myself):

do you have a goal with the boxing or just doing it for fun?

This semester, I'm trying to learn the overall technique because I'm athletic, but by no means a boxer yet lol. Fall semester, I'll tryout for the team and see how it all goes from there. Basically, goal's to compete.

right on.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Been boxing a bit,playing some pickup, lifted once or twice. Snow days and stuff got university closed down and bunch of shit was going on so not very good workouts. Anyways yesterday went to gym for a quick legs workout, just Squats and RDL's nothing much but here it is:

02/15/14
Squat: 135x3, 185x8, 225x8, 225x7
- pretty solid, could've done better but okay for now

Romanian Deadlift: 135x5, 185x5, 185x3
- I hate deadlifts...I could easily done way more then that but the motion is just so awkward to me recently. RDL's definitely feel better then regular ones but just agh. Whatever no more bitching.


Again, I really gotta try to be more consistent with updating my journal and stuff, so I'm gonna try to stay on top of that stuff. Upper body today

Weight: ???
ISF: sore legs (RIP level), bruised left knee, sore abs, cut up right hand
Diet: 65g supp protein, 6/10


Upper Body, 4:15PM
Bench Press: 155x7, 155x5, 135x7
- weak..I hit 155x8 last time, dunno why there was such a drop off today.

DB Row: 50x8, 55x8
- good form on these

DB OHP: 45x5, 45x7, 45x4
- unbelievable...so weak, at beginning I thought it was because my chair was oriented at almost 100 degrees instead of the usual 85-90, but ugh just weak as hell

Hammer Curls: 32.5x10, 32.5x7
- pretty nice



Notes:
- I don't even know what to say lol, extremely disappointed but in the end you get what you give. I cleary have been fucking around and not taking care of my body in the recent time, and it's showing.
- there's a quote (if you can even call it that, maybe a concept is a better term) that I stumbled across that I've thought about a lot before: "Imagine what your body will look like 6 months from now if you keep strong." Just makes me sad because Im notorious for inconsistency in everything I do. Sigh.



All you EDM/Trap fans - I'm not too into that stuff, but this is a great great mix.

This is a video from three years ago...so sad to see that I was at 250x1 @ 130 then and now am only at 275x1 @ 150. That's probably a net loss of strength, I've have barely progressed my lower body in this timeframe. Of course, my upper body has gotten way better but still, it's a pretty depressing thing to me - three years is a longass time. Because of inconsistency, I lost out on so many potential gains - I was so young back then that who knows what could've happened with consistency and the natural teenage propensity to gain strength easily.

Gonna start logging again, hope that I can consistently maintain in for a while, it keeps me disciplined and holds me to some level of accountability too. The goal is to log nutrition, boxing, and lifting... let's goo!

Last two days:

07/12/14
Weight: 150.6lb
ISF: n/a
Diet: n/a

Upper Body (CNS-Intensive), 12:00PM
Bench Press: 200x1; 175lb, 3x5
- all-time bench PR! I'm pretty sure that I can hit 205 next week, also using 180lb for working sets

Reverse Bench Plate Rows: 65lb, 3x6
- hit way better then seated rows, upping weight

DB OHP: 55x5, 50x5, 50x5
-  using 55s on all sets next

Lat Pull: 130lb, 2x6
- stay at this weight

DB Shoulder Press: 22.5lb, 2x8

DB Hammer Curls: 30lb, 2x10

Rope Pulldown: 37.5lb, 2 sets



07/13/14
Weight: n/a
ISF: sore pecs/shoulders/traps
Diet: n/a


Lower Body (CNS-Intensive), 4:00PM
Squat: 275x1, 225lb 3x5
- felt very weak even though I expected to blast through these

DB Bulgarian Split Squats: 45lb, 2x6
- these rocked my legs through and through

SL Standing Ham Curls: 50lb 2x6
- I hate the machine at this gym for ham curls, movement's too unnatural

Calf Raises: 140lb 2x15


Notes:
- gotta keep diet in check, too much unhealthy eating recently

07/14/14
Weight: 147.8lb
ISF: entire lower body sore
Diet: n/a, will start tracking tomorrow


Upper Body (Hypertrophy), 6:30PM
DB Press: 70lb, 3x6
- PR, was supposed to be doing bench but there was a wait

Strict-Form DB Row: 55lb, 2x10
- up weight next week

DB OHP: 50lb, 2x8

Lat Pull: 125x8, 125x6
- a really good first set, second was rough

Tricep Pulldown: 37.5lb, two sets

Hammer Curls: 30x10, 32.5x6


Notes:
- A few things that I will specifically focus on after this generic bulk: addding some posterior deltoid work, strengthening abs with dynamic exercises instead of isometrics like planks, and adding in some explosive/plyometric sessions. I feel like recently with some unhealthy eating (although for some f*cking reason I'm still at 147lb) and lack of intensive interval cardio, I've lost some of the explosiveness that I valued in weightlifting and athletics.
- starting to track diet on phone from tomorrow onwards



listenin' to some classics recently

Ehh, quick recap.

This week has been a pretty horrific span of my life lol... was throwing up yesterday so there's that, eating has still been bad. Didn't go boxing this week so I could recover/work. Got f*cked on a midterm too, as well as a bunch of other stuff I'm too lazy to recount now. Upper body day tomorrow.

07/19/14
Weight: 151.9lb
ISF: n/a
Diet: n/a but not good

Upper Body (CNS-Intensive), 7:30PM
Bench Press: 205x1; 180lb, 2x5, 1x4
- PR'd again! gotta get that 3x5 down with 180 but looking good here

Reverse Bench Plate Rows: 70x6, 70x6, 80x6
- progressing damn fast

DB OHP: 55lb, 3x5
-  encouraging to see a tied PR here, shoulders were stagnating

Lat Pull: 130lb, 2x6
- love these

DB Shoulder Press: 22.5x10, 22.5x8

Rope Pulldown: 37.5lb, 2 sets

BB Bicep Curls: 65lb, 2 sets



Notes:
- Tweaked my neck somewhere in this workout today. The trap/neck region on my upper back on the right side is getting stiff really fast, I hope this doesn't linger too long.
- Really surprised that I'm PR'ing because my diet is the most irregular, fast-food containing, and meal-skipping that it has ever been. Gotta appreciate that my body is still progressing - I'm really happy with the bench PR, getting closer to those two plates! But going to yet again tie down on my diet (and life in general) in order to maximize gains and continue with the bulk.

07/20/14
Weight: 150.2lb
ISF: sore traps, back, pecs
Diet: n/a but very poor


Lower Body (CNS-Intensive), 7:30PM
Squat: 275x1, 235lb 3x5
- still hate squatting to death but finally PR'ing again

DB Bulgarian Split Squats: 40lb, 2x6
- like these, they blast the quads

Calf Raises: 160x10, 160x15



Notes:
- another day with a weak diet but I've cleaned my place, trying to get back into a positive mental framework so I can be disciplined with not eating out and slacking off on cooking
- shortened workout so no ham curls
- tomorrow is upper body - hypertrophy, will be a rushed workout but looking to continue the PR run!

No workouts/boxing since last Sunday because of a midterm, final, and two consecutive projects. Sucks because I missed a hypertrophy arm day, love the soreness those bring out.

Even though I had valid excuses, I know that there was still a lot of wasted time that I could've easily used to work out and I didn't... unacceptable. CNS High-Intensity Upper body day tomorrow!

More problems...didn't go work out yesterday when I should have, and today when I went to make up the workout, I found out that apparently I'm not allowed to use our school gym for the rest of summer because of a technicality in how I registered for my summer classes. Huge blow, luckily I have a facility in the apartment building I'm staying at for 4 more days (only free weights are dumbbells), and same deal with the 8 days after that (except the new apartment building only has free weights until 50lb, which sucks more).

Only 12 more days before going home at last! Probably not gonna be a very fun time at home because I f*cked up pretty bad this summer, but look forward to progressing down the right path and trying again to clean my act.

A quote that I hope to incorporate into my life: "Behavior creates desire." One of my biggest fallbacks is getting easily tempted to rest in a comfort zone because I don't have a special motivation to do work/progress that day. This leads to apathy, unhealthy behaviors and diets, and a state of mind dangerously close to depression that is addicting and draws those without desire in. However, the key is to get started and build up over the inertia even if your mind has zero interest, and soon desire will naturally follow.

Anyways:

07/27/14
Weight: ???
ISF: obviously none because I didn't do sh*t this week lol
Diet: ??? pretty good though

Upper Body (CNS-Intensive), 3:05PM
DB Press: 75x6, 75x5.5, 75x5.5
- pretty nice PR, didn't get the 3x6 though

Seated Cable Row: 130x8, 137.5lb 2x8
- felt a lot of power and coordination on these

DB OHP: 55lb, 2x6

Lat Pull: 130lb, 2x6
- harder then usual, probably weight fluctuation from the new gym

Rope Pulldowns: 2 sets
- used some obscene weight like 75lb, the set up is different in the apartment gym so unfortunately it isn't a magical 35lb gain

Hammer Curls: 2 sets


Notes:
- New gym is not fun at all, but at least it has heavy dumbbells, gotta make use of what I can. Soon my gym will have only DB's under 50lb and that'll be a nightmare. Probably a lot of weight fluctuations in my lifts for the next two weeks as I go from school gym -> apartment #1 gym -> hotel gym -> apartment #2 gym -> home Fitness 19 gym.



More Cudi!
