Tuesday Arms


FEEL THE PUMP!! Hey guys and girls! Just got back from working out a little while ago!  The picture you see above contains my Strength Training Anatomy book and the pills I talked about in my last post.  If you want to hear more about the pills (I take one with every meal) read some of the last post or ask.  But the book above is AMAZING!! I got it off Amazon about two weeks ago and I absolutely adore it!  I would go around school and show people it that I knew would like it and I said something that I never thought I would say, "Bro, look at this amazing book I got!"  It combines an Anatomy book with a strength and conditioning book.  It shows what muscles you work during different lifts, how to preform them properly, and certain injuries that can occur when doing certain lifts.  If you haven't realized by know (or didn't read my other posts) I want to be a personal trainer and after college go into Physical Therapy.  This book has honestly about changed my life in how I look at every exercise I do while I workout.  It is also helping me write my workout plan because you should never just go to the gym and do random workouts.  You should write down everything you do because it will help you see how much you have improved from week to week and help you remember everything you need to get done in that day.
ANYWAYS! Today was my BICEP day, some shoulders, and ABS.  OH, and forearms of course!  The picture above is just a little look into what I use on my bench and back day.  The two red things on the left are my wrist wraps.  I use those during very heavy bench workouts.  Usually on the last two or three sets when I go real heavy.  They are AMAZING! I wish I had my old powerlifting bench shirt (school owns it, I can't powerlift anymore because of my knees) but these things help out so much also.  The two things on the right are my wrist straps.  I use those on my back day when I do a ton of Lats and basically work all of my back.  I will also use them for shrugs, gotta get them huge traps like Kugy! =P  They are actually really important to use when you do a lot of back workouts because they allow you to not focus so much on holding onto the bar, which trigers more of your biceps to come into play, and you can focus more on pulling the bar to your chest.  It helps you focus on the lats way better.  I use the straps during lat pull downs, lat rows, barbell rows, shrugs, and much much more!  It also, like the wraps, help stabilize your writs.  So if you have any questions about either of those things, just ask me.  OHHH and if you are wondering when the hell I do my cardio.  The answer is that I will normally do it at least 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but I cannot do any cardio at this time because my leg is still messed up from when I fell playing hockey in my friends back yard when we had that huge snow storm in Texas.  Yes, it was huge for us, we missed 4 days in a row.
Well I gotta go take a shower because I sweated my ass off today.  Because really, My Life Is Kugy (MLIK)


I <3 Kugy!!

  1. Glad to read you found such a book. I've been to the gym a few times, and it really seems the only two good ways to learn are to ask a stranger at the gym or go straight to a trainer. And they really can't tell you much on their own.

  2. You should write a blog about how much you can lift for all your exercises. It seems like you're doing some pretty different stuff there. That book sounds like it will be a lot of help to, keep up the good work!
