Default Narkissos: The 2008 Training journal

A new Year is here... and where am I?

Certainly not where i thought I'd be.

But... who can foresee injury?

No complaints here.. I've got life... I'm about full healed in some areas. Other areas I'll have to work around.

Wait.. scrap that.. who am i kidding? lol

I'm not anywhere near fully healed.. and i'm not sure i'll be 'healed' anytime soon.

2007.. i took the year off due to injury.. at least that's what i told myself.

I'm not sure that it wasn't self-pity that prevented me from competing.

Yes.. i was/am legitimately injured.. but i may've let myself off too easy.

My goals for this year are listed here: http://www.getnarked.net/forum/index...17281#msg17281

I'm currently investigating just how to go about doing so however.

Thankfully, I have 3 years of detailed training logs to review:

2005 Training journal
2006 Training journal
2007 Training journal

^^Been going over where I've come from... to get a better idea of where i need to go to 'get there'.

'There' being: muscular perfection lol.

I'm thinking that 2006 was my best training year... So I'm going to get back to that training style.

It'll mean that i'll have to re-arrange my life completely.. but, I think imma be up for that.

Viva 2008!

-CNS

This session could've been way better. The client i train with is definitely holding me back here

Monday January 7th

8:25- 9:00 p.m.

Legs


Comments: Hit 'em fast, hit 'em hard.. get outta there!

Leg-press:

warm-up: 180 lbs: 20 reps
warm-up: 180 lbs: 20 reps


Set 1: 360 lbs: 20 reps
Set 2: 540 lbs: 15 reps

Barbell Squats:**

Set 1: 135 lbs: 10 reps
Set 2: 225 lbs: 10 reps
Set 3: 315 lbs: 6 reps [w/ belt & knee wrap]

**I used a bench set below parallel beneath me.. in case my patella slipped. It's still a worrying area for me. Knee wraps were used on the left knee on the last set to assist in stabilizing the area

Comments: It was a mistake to go to 315 lbs. Pre-injury i used to do multiple sets of 10 with this weight no problem. I'm far from recovered though.. so this left me w/ fluid in my injured knee..and pain.May have to consider mutiple sets of 225 for reps in the meantime.


Laying Leg-curls:

Set 1: 80 lbs: 15 reps
Set 2: 100 lbs: 12 reps [failure]
Set 3: 100 lbs: 10 reps [failure]
Set 4: 100 lbs: 9 reps [failure]

Standing Smith-machine Calf-raises:

Set 1: 225 lbs: 10 reps
Set 2: 315 lbs: 10 reps
Set 3: 315 lbs: 10 reps


Short and painful session!

^ Definitely looks like a killer session, Nark!

How much "rest time" between sets do you figure take? All that in 70 minutes must leave you gassed by the end! Looked like a great w/o, bro!
