Hot Diggity, Back Day

Greetings, all.

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.

Oooh, it’s back day, baby.

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

Greetings, all.

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…

We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

I have zero idea if these damned instagram photos & videos I post show up. I’m hoping so, otherwise, dammit. If not, as always, @caliberwinfield.

As I discussed last week, your boy has feelings for a gal I can’t have. Feelings that, despite my wants, seem to keep getting worse. I keep getting drunk on Saturdays with my friends and keep edging closer to telling people I shouldn’t tell about it. It’s uh…it’s obnoxious, ya know? Die, feelings, DIE!

OK, enough of the non-cool talk. I decided to really get back into Power Bodybuilding, or Powerbuilding. I was doing weights 6 days a week, hitting each bodypart twice a week, and have been doing that for almost 3 years. So, I decided to switch it up, and now go to 4 days a week, hammering a bodypart once a week, with some stuff mixed in during the MMA days. We’ll see what happens, but I’m expecting to put on about 50lbs of muscle, drop down to 2% bodyfat, and break Olympic records.

Recently I got a heavy bag, and it’s nice being able to just lay punches into something like that. My teacher was showing us how to kick properly the other day, so it’s nice to be able to learn how to use the other 50% of my body as offense. The thing weighs about 80-90lbs, so we also spent like 30 minutes just picking that bad bitch up, and slamming it in all sorts of ways. That was brutal, but fun. I’m also working on my Wing Chun as well, which is a very slow process since I’m having to cobble all my training together from text & online videos.

Alright, here’s what I did today for Back & Biceps Day…

Crossfit, Bodybuilding’s younger, ADHD brother.

The names Michael, I’m the Crossfit guy here. I’m pretty sure you will see a lot of back and forth between Caliber and I, since he is super jealous that he is too buff fat to do an actual pull-up. Now don’t get me wrong, Crossfit can be a joke at times. Just yesterday I watched a video of some idiots doing terrible cleans, I was just waiting for their backs to pop. The whole time you can hear some lady in the background continuously saying “nice!”

I used to do the standard one body part a day, 5 workouts, 4 sets, 8 to 10 reps, but that got extremely boring. I gave Crossfit a try and loved it. You will never see me sacrifice form to beat the clock though. I don’t jump around trying to beat my best time because I want to have a working spine when I’m in my 50s. With that being said, here is my plan for myself here.

The workout of the day I create daily will be tailored to certain superheros, video game characters, cartoon characters, and the like. Also, I encourage people to give me characters they would like to see me create workouts for, it doesn’t matter who, I’ll figure something out.

On that note, here is the workout I created for today.

Morning workout:

Power Clean

2-2-2-2-2

AMRAP in 6 minutes

12 KB Swings

12 Ball Slams

Row as far as you can in 3 minutes.

Afternoon workout:

15 minutes of 100 yard sprints

I didn’t have a name for this one because I didn’t plan ahead and I suck. Going forward though I will. Hopefully an About Me section is created in this place and you can learn about me. I really want people to know that I’m not the chubby one.

Oh, and I never kip…ever.
