Fuzzyapple's Log

Okay so I was complementing on starting a online log but was hesitant. I feel as if I am lacking motivation and desire to workout anymore. I think starting a log will motivate me even more even if people look at it or not. I hope everyone and anyone comes in and gives helpful advice. I like to hear everyone’s opinion. I can handle constructive criticism well (I think lol).

First off, Stats;
Weight: 145lbs +/- 4lbs
Height: 5’9"
Bench: 225lbs (Haven’t trained max in a while, may be less)
Squat: 265lbs (Probably less)
Deadlift: 365lbs (Maybe the same. Feel strong in this lift)
Rack Dead: 405lbs strap (Hell of a pull)
Triceps kickback:30lbs for reps

As off Feb 15/10 - ~30 Days later
Weight: 150lbs - ^5lbs
Bench: 225lbs x 1
Squat: 225lbs x 12 - ^ 7 reps
Deadlift: Not Tested Yet
Rack Dead: Strapped - 405lbs x 3 ^2 reps, Feb 16/10 405lbs x 5 ^ 2 reps

-I will post workouts after I do them and my daily food intake at night.
-I will even post grocery receipts for people to help me choose better foods or alternatives if the food I buy isn’t the best option.

If you have any questions let me know and post comments if you like :slight_smile:

  4. Spaghetti - sauce and beef

Jan 19/10 - Day 9: The ruhtard

Okay anyone chime in to see how stupid this workout is.
100 suicides so 10 suicides x 10 sets, 1 min rest between sets.
After 1 suicide we are to do 10 push-ups and after a set of 10 we are to do 20 push-ups with 50 sit ups.

Now he told us that we are going to “feel” something on the 6th set and is going to question us to what we felt so he’ll know if we did it or not. Some of the guys can’t even do 20 push-ups without stopping…

\rant FWIW I think this guy is a total fucktard and speaks out of his ass. When you are a trainer you don’t come to the gym with your pants half ways down your ass and a cut off hoodie acting all “I’m the shit”. Yes he said those exact words to people. Dress at least a little professionally. The program he gave the guys is a mass program…yes for in season.

It is stupid program with little to no thought and told me he designed it specifically for volleyball. My friend who plays baseball religiously/semi professionally has the exact same program, maybe he’s training for volleyball on the side…hmmmm…

If I where a trainer I would have these guys on separate programs. Making the bigger guys cut weight, making the defensive player quicker and more explosive etc. I would train individually and more specific to what role they play in volleyball. /rant

So yes it comes out being
9 suicides x 10 push ups = 90 x 10 sets = 900 push ups
1 suicide x 20 push ups = 20 push ups x 10 sets = 200 push ups
total = 1,100 push ups
1 suicide x 50 sit ups = 50 sit sups x 10 sets = 500 sit ups
total = 500 sit ups

I’m going to do this today as I have time and want to get over it by the time he asks us on Thursday. Post back later today in how I felt after doing it.

Jan 20/10 Day 10: Not quite there.

So I attempted this workout and didn’t get it done. It was brutal even to the 3rd set and he wanted us to do 10?! Fuck that shit. I physically cannot do that yet. Instead I ran 18 stairs x 2 for 10 sets. My legs vastus medialis are going to hate me tomorrow.

NOTE: Just spoke with our trainer and the point was we were not suppose to be able to do the workout…and here I was so sad :frowning:

Dang, you are small. I’ll be reading this.

that’s a decent pull for your weight.

cute shoes too.

Thanks. Yeah like I said before I like deads yet I really never do them more than bench and or squats. Oh and I used mixed grip, never straps. I will never go back to normal shoes for lifting after buying vibrams. I really would suggest anyone to try a pair of these.

Going to do a PM workout with the GF and do back. Post back later.

I take you are trying to get bigger. If that’s the case aren’t you eating too little?..two workouts in one day?? I hope you are eating at least 250g of protein if not more on days that you are in the gym twice.

Yes I am trying to get bigger. Once I started writing my diet down it really sunk in that I wasn’t eating enough. But today I have a good diet prepared consisting of 3 meals of chicken breasts, rice, and mixed greens. This isn’t including meals I will eat in between. I just don’t look at food the same as someone who LOVES to eat. I’m learning to get over that barrier and really eat to gain. With volleyball it’s hard because I burn so much calories and I make it my priority to replace lost energy. For what it’s worth I NEVER used to eat this much so it’s a plus. Just have to really stay consistent with it.

My body is used to the volume and frequency of work since playing volleyball and weight training in one day. Plus we have vball off this weekend so I thought why not. I’m a hit and miss with the amount of protein I eat in a day. However, on training days I’m eating more protein. Do you think it’s advisable to really track it? Right now I’m just looking at food in volume not numbers. Plus it’s financially difficult to really buy $70-100 worth a food a week because I am a student paying for my own schooling, no loans. After I pay this semesters tuition I will have lots on money to spend on quality food.

I was sure you could handle the two workouts :), I just wanted to get across that you should be eating a lot of protein on days like THAT since what you have posted on your diet doesn’t look like much.

Personally I don’t count anything. I did when I started out but believe if you are eating quality calories with protein in every meal it should be enough, oh and of course watching the scale/body comp.

That is understandable. Yeah I make sure I at least have some sort of protein source each meal. BTW didn’t do the back workout that day lol.
