    Default New Log for Infantry Deployment

    I have no way of weighing myself. I tried ordering a scale off amazon but they wont ship it here... if anyone would like to donate that or TWO 2.5lbs plates i'd be grateful. PM for addressy

    I decided to skip the first week of 15's on Monday... I had wrist pain while benching but finished the workout.

    Today, Wednesday, I said screw the 15's and went to the 2nd day of 10's lol... NO WRIST PAIN!!! At all!

    Accidentally did the wrong weight for shrugs... did my 2nd day of 5's somehow... but I did it 10 times... it sucked enough for me to check the paper after the 2 sets were over...

    My routine is:
    Pullups(doing the russian routine in the pullup article on this site)
    flat benchpress
    incline benchpress
    chinups(same as pullups)
    Shrugs
    Bent Over Row
    Military Press
    Barbell Curl(then i superset with lighter weights for reverse curl)
    Tricep extension
    Weighted Ab Crunches

    and I throw in 1 set of pulldowns, 1 of reverse pulldown and call it a day


    For breakfast:
    egg whites+cheese+turkey. Turkey sausage, and plain oatmeal with raisins and strawberries.

    In about 30 minutes i'm gonna eat a handful of almonds and a protein shake



    I have no way of measuring myself and no way of knowing how many calories I'm getting.

    Prohormones start next week

    9 months left!

    Lol. So, you're saying you have no way of knowing if you're eating enough calories which means you could be eating under the necessary amount to grow...? Do you live in America? Because it's mandated that there are nutrition facts on food items. You mentioned you have no way to measure yourself? How is it that you don't have a scale? You don't know of a place where you can go to weigh yourself or buy one? I find that very unlikely. Why don't you use M.O.N.E.Y. to buy some weights? You get paid, correct?

    If you're getting wrist pain then it's likely that you aren't placing the bar correctly. Grab "Starting Strength" by Mark Rippetoe, he describes proper hand placement along with numerous of exercises in great detail.

    I wouldn't do chin ups and pull ups if you're essentially doing the russian method, it's pretty much like doing the same thing. Why do you do pulldowns? That's a waste of time, you already hit the same muscles. Do deadlift instead... Why don't you do either squat or deadlift?

    Hey seeker there’s a thing called context which one should understand before ripping on someone, and even then it’s wise to think twice.

    This forum allows infinite editing, you might want to change your post.

    As for buying weights many places don’t ship to APO or FPO addresses (look it up if you don’t know what those are).

    It's alright guys. I Lol'd reading his post... yeah i'm deployed. Tried ordering a scale off Amazon, they don't ship certain items here, scales being one of them.

    No I have no way of measuring myself or knowing how many calories i'm getting... Whats wrong with chinups and pullups? I want to be able to do 20+ dead hang by the time i go back... i plan on going to aasslt school and they love pullups. Wouldn't chinups work Biceps more? I do pulldowns cause i want lat development.


    No deadlift/squat because I want chicken legs
    Besides... heavy squatting will make my 2mile decrease. And deadlifting gives you bloated belly syndrome eventually.

    And I haven't had wrist pains since my first workout.

    You are joking right?

    Unless you are a terrible runner to start with I don’t see either Squats or Deadlifts pushing you above 13 minutes for the 2 mile. At my heaviest in the Corps (I was doing lots of leg and back work due to being the number 2 on my units Rugby team) I could still run sub 16 minute 3 miles.

    OTOH if you do a lot of running to stay in shape or lots of foot patrolling then heavy leg workouts could suck.

    Also, Deadlifting will not give you a bloated belly. Power lifters with big bellies are just fat, which some don’t care about in the heaviest classes because all that matters is lifting more weight and since cutting doesn’t make you stronger. . . .

    I got the bloated belly look and kept it for a long time but lately I've done a lot more cardio (by lately, I mean this year...) and lyle's stubborn fat protocol, and the bloated belly went away which leads me to believe it is mostly due to excessive visceral fat...

    You may find that pullups and chins and pulldowns are a bit much to recover from. I would be sore for a week lol. Try just doing the wide pullups if lat width is your goal as undergrip chins can burn your bi's out before your lats. Nothing wrong with alternating grips, widths etc. to change it up. Just listen to your body cause for some less is more. Thanks to all members of the military! And I agree that Deads don't give you a belly, food usually does lol.

    I didn't know he was deployed, I thought he was preparing for deployment.

    Sorry about getting all crazy on ya. I thought you were preparing to be deployed, maybe I missed the part where you're actually deployed.

    Pullups/Chinups work lats primarily also. Grunt actually described to me why I should do just chin ups instead of pull ups in my thread, here's what he said "I consider Chin Ups and Rows superior to Pull ups. Chins Ups allow you to do more weight than Pull Ups and also allow a greater range of motion. Both of which are better for hypertrophy. Chin Ups are primarily a lat exercise, especially if you focus on using the lats for pulling. As the weight gets heavier you can’t keep the Biceps out of the equation however that’s not because they are taking anything away from the lat involvement but actually assisting them in lifting more weight. So as the weight get very heavy the Biceps do more work but the lats still do the same as if you were doing Pull Ups. I’m not saying that Pull Ups aren’t effective just that IMO you get more out of Chin Ups.". I would do deadlifts since that's just an excellent body building exercise.

    Again, sorry for freaking out. I thought you were still in the states ):
