  • Lost an exercise...DAMN!

    Well today was one of those days, i dont know what happened, I went in there feeling strong, I was ready, prepared to annihilate the weights. And what happens.... I lose the exercise. FUCK.

    I started with Incline Smith press for the chest. Warmups went well, i get to my desired weight. And i think alright, i got 10 last time which was too low so i wanna try get 14 and maybe add 5 lbs on there just to see how i do. So i step up psych myself up and everything, then some dude comes and talks to me during my psych up about how he lost his posing music but then found it again, FAG ASS MOTHERFUCKER. So i have to psych myself up again, no problem, the weight is light, i can do this. I push it up and i get to 4 and it starts to feel real heavy, and all of a sudden it feels like a ton of fuckin bricks. I get 5 and have to rack it. So i think fine, fuck it im ok i can do this. I go again and only get 1. And think what the fuck.

    Continued with my workout making increases in everything else. But was really pissed off about the chest.

    And i realised all my fucking worries about maintaining low bodyfat with cardio and reducing carbs had slowly fucked up my diet and body over the past week or so.

    So im seriously pissed off that i lost the Incline Smith press. But its just fueled me even more to pound down more food. The protein is there 400g on off days 450 on training days, just the fucking carbs im fucking up on cause i was trying to control bodyfat while gaining. but i pushed it too hard, messed it up by not taking in enough.

    Just had to rant a bit. Really annoyed with myself. Should have known better but I guess thats the way we learn right, by making mistakes.

      well bro, you were at 10 reps from the previous time, and you still added weight. you shouldn't have added weight until you got to 15 reps, and then you could have added the 5 lbs, but if i were you, i would have stayed at the previous weight and went for 14. also, if i were you right now, i would go through it again. i wouldn't change it up, i would give it another chance and then change up the exercise if again you fail to maintain an increase in reps or weight.

      you'll be surprised at how you will just totally destroy it next time.

        Most chest exercises you want to perform 11-15 reps, if you make it to 11 then add weight the next rotation, if you make it to 15 on the first try then you have to add weight, its nice to take chances with weight but keep form perfect...

          asim, You can control this BF with cardio also and cutoffs, stick to them and do not deviate, do not cut your diet so much that your weights will suffer, if you are trying to drop some fat do it very slowly not all at once.

          If you are the kind og guy who gets fat easily or started off with to much BF then you may have to do more cardio, not on only off days and maybe move cutoffs back an hour or so...

            In-Human, Asim posted some pics a while ago, and he is pretty damned lean (if i remember correctly, as i think i am), so he is just trying to maintain bodyfat percentages.
            However, i think that since he did progress in all other exercises in this particular workout, i think he might have got a mindscrew before lifting, or maybe it honestly was just not his day for this exercise. if all of his exercises would have suffered, i think his diet would be to blame. however, that isn't the case here.

            still though, you have a great point, and Asim, don't attempt to monitor your carbs (*restricting them*) before 6 pm (or whenever your cut off is), just do the appropriate amount of cardio along with your carb cut off's and you will have no problem in maintaining your bodyfat. and remember, when you are full throughout the day, you aren't getting more bodyfat, you are merely full.

              My technique is perfect with the lift, just my loss in strength from tweaking things.

              Its going to be years of tweaking before i even remotely understand my body. But i'm trying my best.

              I think the added cardio, drop in some carbs over the past couple of weeks just caught me off, ive leaned out a little in the past few weeks, but then ive suffered by not making the major gains with weights as i was when i first started.

              So i'm going to keep the cardio at 3-4 days a week for 30 mins instead of 40 mins. The whole stepping thing makes me sweat. It seems to be working. I'll make a slight increase in postworkout carbs as i think thats where i was lacking, and maybe a little bit extra on off days. It should all workout.


              Had a bit of trouble with my military barbell press, cause throwing up that barbell off the ground is hard enough, then sitting down and getting it going, the more weight i add the more dangerous its gonna get. so gonna have to do something about that.

                We all have bad days here and there, and you knowing what you need is half the battle here, always I mean always keep your post carbs high, you need that spike so you must have the carbs to activate it.

                Like I said moderate, is there is such a word for us, to losing BF, just keep the cardio at a even pace throughout the week...

                        lol. Man i felt good going in there. I thought 5lbs was gonna be nothing, but it ended up being like fucking kryptonite to superman.

                        Postworkout carbs usually, the grape juice in the shake and an hour later my beef, veggies and rice. but ive only just brought that rice back in 2 weeks ago on training days.

                        like i said ive got alot to learn, so sometimes i will go against peoples better judgement because im still immature and sometimes want to try things to then make the mistake and learn for myself that it doesnt work.


                        oh and it wasnt a change up jus 5lb extra i thought i had, but all the small changes jus messed it up. I progressed in everything else. 10lbs to my barbell military press. 3 reps to my reverse grip bench. 10lbs to the lat pulldown and 10lbs to my deadlift.

                        Just that incline press. Chest exercises have usually been my weak point to excel.

                          asim I am not sure if people have already said this, but if you just think that guy mentally fucked you before your set, I say give it another chance instead of dropping i yet.

                            yah damn right Allen, if some guy is going to come up to him and say that he lost his posing music to Boy George, and he needs another "Kameleon" song quick, then i am not surprised that he got mindscrewed. i would definitely try that one more time, but i would listen to music while doing it, something that gets me pumped like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme (that always gets me pumped!!).

                            It's TURTLE TIME,

                              The thing is this is my 3rd cycle of the exercise. so im in week 6 of my blast right now. The first week i came back i went for the weight, i dont know why because i was just coming off a cruise yet i thought i'd be good with it. So i got 8 reps and i thought, shit thats cause im jus coming off the cruise plus i'd increased by 10lbs. So i gave it another shot, got 10 reps, and thought alright this is basically it. Gotta get it this week. So i increased by 5lbs and went for it, but it wasnt there. GOD DAMN THAT GUY. Plus all these factors. I'm better off dropping it than slowly gaining a rep here and there. I can come back to it another time, i jus want to find another good incline exercise. We have a machine incline press which i might use. Cause im doing low incline dumbells. and i dont like the incline barbell press.
