Scarecrow's Log

Hey all, I'm setting up this log again but this time in the correct section. My goal the next 6-8 weeks is to try to get as close to benching 300lbs as possible. I did a test over the weekend and was able to put up 270, so it is at this mark that I will begin the routing using the spreadsheets on this site.

http://www.geocities.com/~slopitch/mm2k/

So here is what all I did for the day...

Week 1 / Day 1

Bench Press - 1x6 @ 210, 2x5 @ 225, 2x4 @ 235
Cable Flys - 3x8 @ 25/30/35
DB Side Raises - 3x8 @ 25/30/35
Triceps Ext. - 3x8 @ 50/55/60
Weighted Situps - 3x12 @ 35/40/45

One change from my original post is that I switched out the incline DB presses and added in cable flys. All the weight used today felt good, I might add 5 lbs to each set of my triceps extensions next week.

Welcome to the super awesome training log subforum Scarecrow!

I was wondering why you work triceps and chest on the same day instead of isolating, like working chest and back one day, biceps/triceps one day, and shoulders one day?

I've done programs that group muscles like you suggest, but this program seems to focus more on push/pull movements which seem to naturally isolate chest/triceps and back/biceps. I don't think there is any right way to set up a routine as long as you keep mixing it up.

Actually I was just looking at your program and if I remember correctly from your last thread you aren't going to be squatting or Deadlifting? Why is that?

My last program was Bill Starr's 5x5 which is a fairly intensive squat/deadlift routine. The 5x5 and this program are both taxing on your CNS, just in different ways. I wanted to save my "kill me" days for the bench days and leave legs for an end of the week deal.
