Leg Day, the day that doesn’t seem to be on the calendar of most gym go-ers.
Greetings, good people.
Today was Shoulders, and that brings the world together.
Started this bad bitch off with the Stairmaster. I hit 40 flights in 10 minutes. A while ago my goal was 30 in 10 minutes. Few things kick your ass harder than this. I know, the Stairmaster is scary, get over it.
Today was some Chest Day action, and I think it ended up saving the world.
Stairmaster – 40 flights in 10 minutes.
Flat Bench – 185×5, 205×5,5, 225×5, 210×5,5
The first set I go slow, and pause at the bottom. My right arm was hurt about a week ago, I think from working on my punches too much. I haven’t hit 225lb for a set of 5 in a while, and I was at least 15-20lbs heavier when I did. Speaking of which, I hit 235lb today. Another 15lbs to go.
Hammer Strength Incline Bench – 150×10, 10, 10, 10, 10
I only rest about 60 seconds between these sets, just straight up bodybuilding. Always loved this machine.
Cable Flies – 27.5×12, 9, 8
I wish I could do dumbbell, but these are an awesome substitute.
Wing Chun Punching Drill – There’s 4 different styles of drills. Depending on the day, I either do 100 sets, which ends up with 300 punches, or 5, which is 150. Today I ended up doing about 700 or so. Then I did 100 Lop Saus, which is a favorite Wing Chun technique of mine. You use an arm to knock down their guard arm, and punch them in unguarded, stupid face. I then throw about 50 front/push kicks. These motherfuckers can be tiring.
Wing Chun Wooden Dummy – I build mine out of a Smith Machine, so it’s all steel, and all painful after a while. I do 50 rounds of a basic, 9 move set, and then switch my lead arm and do 50 more.
I did a little shadow boxing, and ended it with a 10 minute run.
Good times today.
I can't think of a clever phrase involving the back at the moment, so heres a picture of my back. I really have missed splitting my training into once a week body part focused. You can just beat the hell out of a body part and become the bear in a flannel shirt you were destined to be. Deadlift – 210×2, 230×2,2,2, 250×2,2,2 Row Machine – 205×10,10,10,10,10 This machine is awesome, because you can twist the handles. Asst Pull Ups- 70lbs off x 8,8,8 Ez Bar Curl – 80×8,8 Hammer Curls – 35×8,8, Wing Chun Punching Drills – 20 minutes Wing Chun Block & Kick Drills – 10 minutes Good times. I'm down to almost 235lb, and I like how it's helping my back finally come in. However, being pale as fuck is doing me zero favors. #powerlifters #powerlifting #bodybuilders #bodybuilding #backday #deadlifts #wingchun #wannabefighter #FatBuffAthlete
Feel like such a damn pro for finally figuring out that damn ordeal with the instagram pictures showing up. So, thumbs up to me.
Last Friday & Saturday was my MMA training days, worked on strikes, mostly, as well as some defense. My buddy Jon, who’s about 6ft, 375lbs, was just bulldozing me and punching the shit out of me when I was at my most tired. It was fucking brutal.
Once Sunday hit, then it was Chest Day. It went a little something like…
Plants grow when you talk to them, so do muscles. Here, my biceps try and tell me Back to the Future is better than BTTF Part 2. Yeah, I don't think so. Today was shoulders, and needless to say, a riproaring good time. Over Head Press – 115×5,5,5,5,5 Barbell Upright Row – 60×8, 70×8,8 Dumbbell Upright Row – 30×8,8,8 Lateral Raises – 17.5×12,12,12,12 Rear Felt Flies – 60×12,12,12,12 Lop Sao – 100 reps each arm. This is a Wing Chun technique that I love. Wing Chun Punches – 10 minute drill Ab Chair – 4 sets of 10-15 SUPERSET WITH Hyper Extensions – Holding a 25lb plate for 4 sets of 10-12 Captain's Chair Leg Raises – 4 sets of 10 with a 15lb dumbbell When I go heavy, I rest 3-5 minutes. Bodybuilding style, 30-60 seconds. #bodybuilding #bodybuilders #powerlifting #powerlifters #powerbuilding #powerbodybuilding #boxing #wingchun #shoulderday #wannabefighter #FatBuffAthlete
Hot damn, your boy finally figured out how to bring in these damned Instagram images. Good times.
I really dig the hell out of working on a single body part, as you can beat the hell out of it. I’m thinking since it’s such a radical change from the last few years, it should shock the muscles and hopefully yield some new results. Dig it.
