    Nice job man.

    If I didn't have to play personal trainer to my step sons I would definitely give it a shot myself. We will see how long they stick it out at the gym.

    So tomorrow looks like a lot of dead lifts, one of the accessory lifts is incline bench, anyone more familiar with the program know if it matters if its with the bar or can you go with DB, or does it not matter?

    Day #2

    Today was a bit more intense than the first day, did some lifts i havent done before like the deads to knees and from boxes, as well as the lunges, havent done one of them in a long time.
    All in all felt like a much better workout than day 1. Hit all the lifts but it was a challenge today for sure.


    Deads to knees
    180 1 set for 3 reps
    215 2 for 3
    250 2 for 3
    275 3 for 3 (this called for 270 but was just easier to toss on 2 25lb plates rather than piss with the smaller ones)

    Incline bench, went with the bar instead of DB
    185 4 sets of 6 (had 205 on it to start but damn it felt heavy today so dropped it back some)

    Dips
    dips i do a lot, but due to shoulder issues i am hesitant to use a real bodyweight dip and have that much weight on my shoulders, so i used the machine and just set it to my body weight instead
    5 sets of 5 at 225

    Deads from boxes
    200 1 set x 4 reps
    235 1 x4
    275 2 x 4 (again called for 270)
    315 4 x4 ( this called for 305, but did the same as the other weight,just easier to toss another 45lb plate on than piss with the others, hit them all and felt good at the end, was a good challenge)

    Lunges
    5x5 used 50 pound DB in each hand, was a little wobbly since im not used to doing these.




    Abs
    3 sets of 10 reps

    went with hanging leg raised for this.

    Was pretty well drenched in sweat by the end of this, felt like i got a good workout. Felt good leaving. need food now!


    Also want an opinion on next week, i have an extra day of work on Wed, by the time i get back the gym will be closed....i dont really want to skip a day of this though. So im going to take a look to see whats all involved come next week but my options are..

    1. do two days back to back, either mon, tues, or thurs friday.
    2. do mon, thurs, saturday....if i can manage to get up in time on saturday to get to the gym long enough to do it.
    3. Skip the day....( really dont want to)
    4....??????

    Bar would be preferred but if it's not available do the dumbbells.

    I went with the bar, figured that was probably the preferred way.

    Keep in mind your real goal is dropping BF. If you can’t do options #2 then go for a late night run. 5k

    I think ill be able to get that day in on Wed, ill either use my sons membership to his 24hr gym, or i may get back in time to go to the golds thats a little further away that closes an hour latter.
    Thats my only gripe about golds gym is its not 24 hours. But its the only one in the area that has the equipment that i need.

    I signed up for a 2 year membership with them once i realized they were going to be the only real option in my area. I like the place, its freaking huge and has everything you could need. Its the non 24 hour and closed on holidays that i dont like. Other than that, great place.
