McCallum 3

Wed, 28 Aug 14

OHP: 45x5, 75x5,95x5, 100x2x12
Rows: 95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 140x3x15
Bench: 115x5, 135x5, 140x3x12
Curls: 45x5, 65x5, 80x10

Those rows are brutal! By the time I got to the last set of curls I couldn't bear to even put the weights away.

McCallum 3

Tues, 27 Aug 14

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 165x5, 185x5, 190x2x15
Pullovers: 50x2x20
SLDL: 140x15
Leg Raises: BWx25

I added 5 lbs to all the lifts and it still left me pretty out of breath for a while.  I was breathing hard for about 10 minutes after the workout.  The leg raises really torture my lower back, but I can feel them in my glutes quite well, so I'll keep at 'em.  Cardio tomorrow.  If time isn't too bad I'm going to do the upper body portion of the routine.  I should be able to hit these three times a week, which should be good enough for hypertrophy and tendon improvements.

McCallum 2

Sun, 24 Aug 14

Rows: 45x5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x3x15
Bench: 45x5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x3x12

Don't laugh at the weights. Doing 15 rows without putting it down, a plate a side, is hard work!  Anyhow, finished up from yesterday.  Weather looks good for cardio  few days this week.

McCallum 2

Sat,  23 Aug 14

Curls: 45x10, 65x10, 75x10
Squats: 45x10,  135x5, 155x5, 175x5,  185x2x15
Pullovers: 45x2x20
SLDL: 135X15
Leg Raises: 1x25
OHP: 45x5, 65x5, 85x5, 95X2X12

Leg raises really hurt my lower back after all the other stuff.   By the time I got through the OHP I was too beat to row or bench.  This takes a long time when you're not well conditioned.  Easily close to 1.5 hours.

Sun, 17 Aug 14

Squats: 45x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 265x3x5

So pissed. Gained 3 lbs back this week somehow.  Anyhow, wanted to squat 305 for reps, but it wasn't happening.  Couldn't do anything after, just flat out exhausted.

Managed to finish these.  Straight and to the point: just enough work to maintain strength.

Bench: 45x10,  135x10,  185x10,  225x2x6

Felt sick afterwards.  Still dieting and feeling weak and unmotivated.  I'll squat tomorrow.

Hex and Bench

Sun,  3 Aug 14

Hex bar deadlifts: 160x10,  250x10,  300x10,  350x5, 390x5, 410x5

Bench: 135x10, 185x10,  215x10, 225x3x10

Been slacking off.  Too much vacation and video games.  Weight currently at a whopping 235. Most I've weighed in a while.  Very disappointed in myself. Time to crack the whip.
