Second Daily “Selfie” – I am pretty proud of these.  These are the first images I have tried using filters on.  Also, they are the first pictures that actually show off the work I have been putting in in the gym.

Monday – Chest/Arms

Finally got down to Shawn Frankl’s Big Iron Gym.  It felt great to be back.  A bunch of the guys are preparing for a meet in January so there was a lot of benching going on. I was lucky to be able to snag a bench and watch a ton of weight being moved.

EZ Bar Curl – 40×10, 45×10,50×10, 55×10, 60×10

Daily “Selfie” – Forgot again…

Monday – Chest/Arms

Well, it was supposed to be a deload day at 50% volume and 90% 1RM intensity. Since we have the Lift-a-thon coming up in a couple days and I have no idea where my maxes are currently, I  thought I would train a little differently than programed.  Probably shouldn’t have.

Bench Press – 45×10, 135×10, 225×5, 275×1, 315×1, 335×1 (I think I could have gone heavier, but I was lifting alone so no spotter and didn’t want to hurt myself.)

EZ Curls – 95x4x8 (used the Arm Blaster as well)

Daily “Selfie” – This is one of my old school Notre Dame shirts.  Again, like a previous post, one of the most storied schools in U.S. history.  Every time I head into the Heavy Hammer Gym I have to hit the Play Like A Champion sign.  It reminds me that in order to succeed and be a champion I have to train like a champion.  Also pictured, my trusty SBD Elbow Sleeves and Stiff, 1m Wrist Wraps.  2015-12-14-05.54.03.jpg.jpeg

S.S.1 (superset) Preacher Curls – 80x5x8

S.S.2 French Press – 80x5x8

Assisted Pull Up – 85x2x10

Daily “Selfie” – I took this “selfie” when I got home due to the fact that I trained at school.  This is one of my ‘Merica shirts.  Every 4th of July I try to buy a new shirt that represents my love and patriotism for my country and for those that defend her.2015-12-12-07.22.07.jpg.jpeg

Daily “Selfie” – This is my Toughest shirt (yes, I know…hahaha). I got this shirt at the Quad City Strength and Fitness Expo this summer. Tugfest is a giant game of tug-of-war.  You can find more about it here: http://www.tugfest.com/history.  I want to compete in this someday. Again, also pictured are my SBD Elbow Sleeves and Inzer wraps.2015-12-07-05.48.05.jpg.jpeg

Wrist Roller – 45×4 (each set includes rolling the wrist roller forward until completed, rolling it back down, rolling it back up the opposite way as previously, and then rolling it back down.)

Daily “Selfie” – Here is one of my new Bro-tanks. It is a bit small around the belly (like everything is), but it fit worse when I bought it 6 months ago.  I got it at Walmart in the summer because they had a HUGE Bro-tank sale going on..lol. Apparently a lot of bros shop at wally world. Again, due to chest day, I am wearing my awesome SBD elbow sleeves and my old Inzer Z wrist wraps.  Maybe someday I can be a bro and actually show off some guns.2015-12-05-09.07.42.jpg.jpeg
