HP's DC training log

So I thought I'd give a log a try. This is the 3rd time around with these exercises. I had a bit of a break before this blast I went for a 5 week holiday to NZ and now i am back in Spain and ready to kill it again. Workout number 1 went as follows. Really tough getting back after such a long break and I am a bit disappointed with some of the numbers. But I expect that to even out in a few weeks. Stretches are done after each exercise, but I didn't feel the need to add them.


• A Incline plate loaded press 11-15 rest-pause 90 kg x 8/3/1/12
• A Bb shoulder press 11-20 rest-pause 60x10/6/4/20
• A Freedom rack RG bench presses 11-20 rest-pause 70x 8/6/6/20
• A Rack chins 11-20 rest-pause 40 x 10/6/4/20
• A Deadlifts 4-8 9-12 190x 5 150x 12

• Incline seated dumbbell curls 20-30 rest-pause 17,5 kgx 16/8/8/32
• Pinwheel curl 12-20 SS 20x21
• Machine leg press calf raises 10-12 173x13

• Leg press 4-8 20 SS 420x 8 300x 25 (don't know how much the sled)

Got a slight pull in my left hamstring during my last rep on the STLD but decided it wasn't bad enough to stop the workout. So did my leg press anyway with an extra warmup to "feel" it out

• Decline bb press 11-15 rest-pause 110kg x 8/4/3/15
• Plate loaded shoulder press 11-20 rest-pause 110x10/6/5/21
• Dips 11-20 rest-pause 20x 10/6/4/20
• Close grip pull ups 11-20 rest-pause 90x 10/6/5/21
• 1 arm Hammer rows 11-20 rest-pause 80x8 drop to 60x 8/4/20

I really overestimated my strength on hammer rows today so I loaded it up with 80kg and quickly realized that it was way to heavy so I did 8 reps and then dropped 20kgs for my 2 last RP sets. So a lesson has been learned. I could probably have gotten like 11 or 15 reps with the 80kg but being the first workout I want to allow for more room to grow, so by using a lighter weight now, I can end up with a heavier weight at the end of the blast. Over all it's great to be back in the gym! Exams are over for this semester now as I am in my fifth and last year of Chiropractic school so now I can once again focus on my training.

Unless it was one of those sets where you felt like you would barely get 10 reps in the end, I would just stick to the same weights, HP. With 8 reps on the first set, you should be able to get at least 12-13 if you got really focused. It's hard to explain what it's like to get that focused because I would be using some disgusting analogies. But you really need to become consumed with power and grind out some nasty reps at the end of the rest pauses, as if you were like a hydraulic pump. You will be able to get more reps with more weight, this way.

Keep musclin'

Hey Andy, yeah I am actually sitting here re-watching the DC dvd and having some realizations. I think I'm gonna try and be a bit more aggressive in my weight jumps. I have been increasing weight only if I get to the top of my rep range. So if I'm doing a set of 11-15 I haven't increased the weight unless I got 15 or more. But I am gonna try and really push the weights this blast to make some serious damage to the log. So from now on I'll focus on adding weight first and reps second.

• Wide cable curls 11-20 rest-pause 35x10/6/6/22
o Stretch 25x60sec
• 1 arm Cable reverse curl 12-20 SS 10x22
o Stretch 25x60 sec

Good workout a bit high on the reps but ill try and be a bit aggressive with the increases next time to get the numbers within the range. That's it for my first 2 weeks and I am really looking forward to beating my numbers next few weeks and really beat the crap out of that logbook!!! But now it's time for some serious R&R so I am prepared for next weeks slaughter.

This was a great workout!!! I ended up being pretty aggressive in adding weight to the bar because I felt like last time I was just getting warm after my extended break. So today I really wanted to push it a bit to start progressing beyond where I finished the last blast. I don't know what happened at the OH press though. I have to start from a dead stop since my gym doesn't have a proper rack. So I set up the stoppers at a level where I can pick it up before my set and then go from there. So maybe I just got fatigued? The last mini set was not moving at all though. I really tried for that 3rd rep but no way. Next time! Anyway really happy with today workout and really looking forward to the progression that is about to come and now I eat!!!

Week 1 (Last time)
B1
• Barbell EZ curls 11-20 rest-pause 55kg x 10/6/4/20
• Hammer curl 12-20 SS 20x 20
• Leg-press calf raises 10-12 200 x 13
• High wide leg press SS 15-30 250x 35
• Freedom rack lunges 4-8 20 SS 110x8 70x20

Week 3 (This time)

B1
• Barbell EZ curls 11-20 rest-pause 65kg x 6/4/3/13
o Stretch 25kg x60sec
• Hammer curl 12-20 SS 30kgx13
o Stretch 25kg x60sec
• Leg-press calf raises 10-12 240kg x 12
• High wide leg press SS 15-30 30kg x 30
o Stretch 60 sec
• Freedom rack split squat 4-8 20 SS 120kg x 10 80kgx 21
o Stretch 60 sec

In this workout, I think my jumps in weight might have been a bit too aggressive since I did lose a lot of reps on biceps and forearms. So I think I will try and keep that in mind for future workouts. The EZ-bar curls have been very heavy since my last blast and they are really tough to progress on but as long as I can keep adding weight to the bar and stay in my range I'll keep them. Next time I'm doing this workout I might stay with the same weights to up my reps a little or just do like a 2,5 kg increase. Do you guys want me to put my weights in pounds so that it's easier to follow or is it ok in kgs? All together it was a decent workout and some good jumps were done. Now it's time to head to the supermarket to stock up on some food.

o Stretch doorknob 10kg x 60 sec (Used Hammer row for this strech)

Today the logbook really kicked my a##!!! I felt already during the warmups that my body was a bit taxed from this week's big weight jumps. But I had made up my mind about what weights I was gonna use so I just went to war with the log. Ended up missing my rep range on 2 moves and that was a bit disappointing but it was a big increase so I'll just keep hammering until I'm back in my range. The OH press was more of an ego lifting thing since my gym doesn't have bigger dumbells than 35kg so I just really wanted to start using them, even though I probably should have waited for 1 or to rotations.
All and all not to bad of a workout but def some room for improvement and some smarter weight jumps in the future. Now it's time for some well-needed recovery over the weekend. Have good weekend guys.
