A cross between Chef Ramsey and Simon Cowell and from another person a mix of Shrek and The Hulk. Really? Really?? I’m not that big. Seriously.
So I haven’t posted in a few days because I have been in so much pain I can’t even explain myself. I did Body Beast Bulk Legs the other day and added some deep squats to the routine, something that I would have done in the garage last summer every week. For some reason, doing deadlifts and cleans does not extend the squat as fully as I had thought and after doing the full squats I developed massive knots in the top of my quads on both legs. I am mystified as to why this would happen I mean it’s not like I don’t do legs, but the reaction my body had was like “what the hell are you doing?”.
My past few workouts have looked like this:
|79||Tuesday, 03/25/2014||63||Body Beast Bulk Arms||80%|
|81||Thursday, 03/27/2014||64||Body Beast Bulk Shoulders||79%|
|82||Friday, 03/28/2014||65||Body Beast Bulk Legs – Squats killed leg||79%|
|83||Saturday, 03/29/2014||Off very sore leg||0%|
|84||Sunday, 03/30/2014||66||Body Beast Bulk chest 135-235||79%|
|85||Monday, 03/31/2014||67||Body Beast Bulk Back – Pullups and Deadlifts 50 per||79%|
|86||Tuesday, 04/01/2014||68||Body Beast Bulk Shoulders with press||79%|
and I am happy to note that I am still almost at 80% even after 86 days. I will be officially finishing the R11 this week then but I will continue the Body Beast for probably another 30 days or so to get a good idea of what a full 90 would be like. Also you may notice that on back day I did pullups that means it was warm enough on Monday to get outside. It was in fact 14 degrees and doing pullups outside again was both exhilirating and worrisome since I became aware very quickly that my ability to knock out 20 pullups in a row was very far in the past. As soon as the weather is better I will have to modify y goals to add 20 in a row. In fact, now that the weather is improving a little I think I need to put down what I expect from myself by June 1.
Deadlift – 200lbs
Shoulder Press – Standing 185lbs
Clean – 185lbs
Clean and Press – 185lbs
Pullups – 20 unbroken with kip 10 without kip
Squat – 185lbs since I don’t have a squat rack and have to C&P the weight first
Ring Dips – 20 unbroken or 10 strict
I would also like to have my bar muscle up by the summer, I don’t think that’s too crazy. Or maybe ring MU.
