    NOTE TO MODS: Feel free to change my logtitle to "Second coming of Lard-ass".

    This is my log of testing out different programs. Looking back today at my log, I have embarked on a journey from the usual BB type of routine with millions of exercises, towards more full body, compound exercise-based program.

    Started out with 3 day split (2005) moved on to HST (during summer and fall of 2006) to Bill Starr 5 x 5 since november 2006. Like 5 x 5 a lot, but Im currently doing a fullbody program 3x5 sligthly inspired by rippitoe.

    Due to previous lack of knowledge and benchmonkey-nitis, I have a terribly weak posterior chain and left shoulder which atm prevents me from DL, OHP and benching.
    Due to the weakness and imbalance, my back and shoulder keeps fukking up when I lift hard.
    My goal is to build up all my weak spots and get a decent squat, DL and OHP numbers.

    Had to temporary give up martial arts due to backproblems and not having enough time due to long work hours. So, I know the title of the log are somewhat misleading.

    Aug 20

    Interval uphill running 20 minutes and then 8.5 km running.

    NOTE: did the fast and the dreadful interval running first, directly followed by "normal" running, makes it feel a lot easier..
    My Back and neck are still fucked up. No lifting yet for a couple of days.
    Have clean up my eating another notch. Eating a lot of Fish, chicken, vegetables, fruit. Have skipped milk, white bread, sugar. Lets see if it gives any results...

    AUG 24 Back to lifting again. yippie!

    Squat day

    80 (kg) x 10
    80 x 12 (Went totally out on this set) (NEW PB)
    90 x 3 Felt easy but no energy left to rep...

    legextension (quadriceps)
    70 x 8
    70 x 8
    70 x 8

    Calfraises (cable)
    100 x 8
    100 x 7
    90 x 8
    90 x 7
    90 x 6

    No full contact twist due to backinjury, dont wanna risk anything. The squatting was dangerous enough for the back, feel tired in the upperback but beside that, feeling fine.


    NOTE: despite being injured last couple of weeks, running a lot and loosing weight, I still did PB which surprised me. Think the deadlifting starts to help up my squat. feeling a lot stronger in lower back and core muscles...No problem to adjust if I starting to loose balance during the squat. :D

    NOTE: No deadlift today. My legs and lower back was so sore and stiff after squatting earlier this week so I couldnt get down in deadlift position and arching my back in the right way.

    Thu - running
    Fri - Pushday
    Sat - rest
