Nutrition and last 2 workouts.

I have recently started keeping a nutrition long on the forum.  I am trying to tighten up my carb backloading in hopes of leaning out more.

HIIT on spin bike 4 minutes easy/30 sec. hard. 2 cycles of that and another 4 minutes. This will be my 2nd day a week of HIIT. I will build up to 5 cycles each day.

A1 -GCB goodmornings 95x5, 135x5, 185x5. 225x5 (heaviest weight on back since last year)
A2 - spud pull down abs 180x12, 200 3x12

B1 - curls 3x12
B2 - band hip work 3x15

C1 - TKE 3x8
C2 - nech harness 40 3x15

My hands are really starting to feel beat up. I need to adjust to this heavier training. I might need to back down a bit next cycle and add it back in slower.

Speed bench
Micro mini and 28 pounds of chain per side. 155 9x3

pin press 3 inches (guess)
399x3, 449x3, 486x3

Friday - Not much to say for my lower body workout. Still working around a bum knee.

B1- Standing leg curls with 20 pound ankle weights 3x25 each leg

B2 - plank 3x45 sec

C1- calk raise 3x15

C2- Roller hypers 4 plates 2x8

Speed bench week 1 3/22/12

I am planning on a bench meet in June and it is time to step things up a bit.

Speed bench with a micro mini and 1 set of chain. The plan is to add more chain each week.
135 x3
155 9x3
177 x1
185 x1

Pin press 3+ inches

I am running an experiment in hopes that putting 90% on my shirt bench every week will prepare me for heavier weights in the shirt.  Most of my max effort work is below 85% of my shirt bench and with a lack of training partners it is hard to get into my shirt more than once every eight weeks.

A1 Grenade fat man rows 4x12
A2 tates 50 4x12

B1 shrugs 225 3x15
B2 battling ropes 3x115 slams.
B3 reverse hyper curls 20kg 3x20

Overall a good session. Weight was 240.8 today.
