Dang that's a lot of working out.

I work out 3x a week, typically MWSa, but that's been getting shifted around a lot lately. 30 min cardio, currently on an arc trainer, followed by one of my strength-training workouts. Workout A is 5x5 squats, bench press, barbell rows. Workout B is 5x5 squats, overhead press, 1x5 deadlifts. I'm up to:

Squats: 100
Bench: 60 (LAME)
Rows: 45 (just added these, so starting low)
Overhead: 45 (double LAME)
Deadlifts: 130

I'm disappointed with my press performance. sad.gif


Why would you want to lift more weight than that?

I took a whole week off from the gym this week.

My workout schedule has been fucked for the last 2 months.

But what's weird is ...

I have gotten _NOWHERE_ on bench press for over a year. I still can't bench for shit.

I can't do squats anymore because of my knees being fucked up, but my legs just keep getting stronger regardless .... I can put 1080-lbs (12 plates on each side) on the loaded squat press machine right now, and do 900-lbs on the incline leg press (10 plates on each side) ... Yet when I try to go over 275 on squats my knees hurt so bad I can't even do it? huh.gif

I need to get over this weight lifting crap and cut 20 pounds ... like cut down to about 235-ish and maintain that weight, and get some abs, a penis enlargement, and then walk around telling chicks to have sex with me because now I look like an actor or something ...

i hate being a fat fuck sad.gif

Why wouldn't I?

My short term goals are:
Squat - 130
Bench - 100
Overhead - 65
Deadlift - 160
Rows - Not sure, maybe 100?

Surgery and being sick from other crap sidelined my weight training, but I am up to 145 on deadlifts. Woot.

On the suggestion of one of the trainers at our gym, the husband and I are trying out 10x10 German Volume Training. From my research, it's either love it or hate it, but is decent at increasing strength and killer at cutting weight. It's not a "bulking up" routine, which is probably the reason for some of the criticism it gets.

We're doing just the primary exercises this week, to get a feel for starting weights and get used to the routine. Followed by 30 min cardio. Next week we'll add in the secondary 3x10 exercises.
