July 20 2014 - BFB Week 4 Day 4 (light day)

A1. Deadsquat: 410/420/435/460/485

A2. Bench press: 305/315/325/345/360

A3. High Pull: 215/220/225/2240/255

A4. Military Press: 180/185/190/200/210

A5. Pull up: BW +20/+25/+30/+35/+40

Workout completed in 21:05 - about 50 seconds faster than the previous 'light' day this week which took 21:56.


July 21 2014 - BFB Week 4 Day 5

A1. Deadsquat: 435/450/460/485/510

A2. Bench press: 325/335/345/360/380

A3. High Pull: 225/235/240/255/265

A4. Military Press: 190/195/200/210/220

A5. Pull up: BW +20/+25/+35/+45/+50

Time: 21:56. Not quite as fast as Day 3 this week where I did this same workout in 21:26 but still very quick for me. Interestingly enough 21:56 is the same time that it took me to do a 'light' day earlier in the week.

Bodyweight was 205 this morning which is up about 5 lbs since starting this program. The only change to my nutritional intake that I have made since starting this program is the addition of an extra half scoop of Plazma intra-workout and a Finibar pre-workout most days.

July 23 2014 - BFB Week 5 Day 1

A1. Deadsquat: 440/455/465/490/515

A2. Bench press: 330/340/350/365/385

A3. High Pull: 230/240/245/260/270

A4. Military Press: 195/200/205/215/225

A5. Pull up: BW +25/+30/+40/+50/+55

Time: 23:51. That was a couple of seconds faster than Day 1 of Week 4. Negligible difference on the time but each set was 5 lbs heavier so I'll consider that a significant improvement.

July 25 2014 - BFB Week 5 Day 2 (light day)

A1. Deadsquat: 415/425/440/465/490

A2. Bench press: 310/320/330/350/365

A3. High Pull: 220/225/230/245/260

A4. Military Press: 185/190/195/205/215

A5. Pull up: BW +25/+30/+35/+40/+45

Workout completed in 21:40.

Due to work I had to do this session in the evening after sitting at a desk and in a car for much of the day. I much prefer getting these sessions done early in the day. Strength feels better early on and my hips did not move as well as usual today. I will be able to get my next workout in before work on the 26th which is better but that also means that I'll be doing a 'heavy' day only about 12 hours after finishing this workout. Not ideal but what are ya gonna do?

July 26 2014 - BFB Week 5 Day 3

A1. Deadsquat: 440/455/465/490/515

A2. Bench press: 330/340/350/365/385

A3. High Pull: 230/240/245/260/270

A4. Military Press: 195/200/205/215/225

A5. Pull up: BW +25/+30/+40/+50/+55

Time: 21:00. Big improvement over Week 5 Day 1 time of 23:51 and the fastest 'heavy' day that I've done yet on BFB. This being Week 5 I've added 20 lbs to every set of every lift since Week 1 and I'm getting it done about 20-25% faster.

July 27 2014 - BFB Week 5 Day 4 (light day)

A1. Deadsquat: 415/425/440/465/490

A2. Bench press: 310/320/330/350/365

A3. High Pull: 220/225/230/245/260

A4. Military Press: 185/190/195/205/215

A5. Pull up: BW +25/+30/+35/+40/+45

Workout completed in 24:03. The week finally caught up with me. Little sleep, short turn arounds between workouts, super busy days at work (double homicide and an armed bank robbery on the go) had me feeling run down today. Completed the session but felt like more of a walk through today and that was reflected in the time it took to complete.

July 28 2014 - BFB Week 5 Day 5

A1. Deadsquat: 440/455/465/490/515

A2. Bench press: 330/340/350/365/385

A3. High Pull: 230/240/245/260/270

A4. Military Press: 195/200/205/215/225

A5. Pull up: BW +25/+30/+40/+50/+55

Time: 20:23. Boom. Another PR for fastest heavy day yet on BFB. Nice improvement over Week 5 Day 3 time of 21:00. I was surprised to do this well today given the my crappy effort yesterday and the fact that I didn't eat dinner last night and was up well past bedtime responding to the immediate aftermath of a f'ing tornado. Took a Spike this morning and went for it anyway.

August 2, 2014 - BFB Week 6 Day 2 (light day)

A1. Deadsquat: 420/430/445/470/495

A2. Bench press: 315/325/335/355/370

A3. High Pull: 225/230/235/250/265

A4. Military Press: 190/195/200/210/220

A5. Pull up: BW +30/+35/+40/+45/+50

Workout completed in 19:40. That is my fastest time yet on a Built For Bad workout. Throughout the program I have steadily decreased my workout times while adding weight each week. I am very impressed with the improvements to my work capacity that have come with this program. Considering that I do all my own weight changes between sets which takes roughly 2 minutes each time I am astounded by the fact that I am now able to do this much heavy work in such a short time.

Once again, hats off to CT. I have always done extremely well with his programming and I have to say that this is by far my favorite program yet.

Aug 4 2014 - BFB Week 6 Day 3

A1. Deadsquat: 445/460/470/495/520

A2. Bench press: 335/345/355/370/390

A3. High Pull: 235/245/250/265/275

A4. Military Press: 200/205/210/220/230

A5. Pull up: BW +30/+35/+45/+55/+60

Time: 20:58. Improvement over 22:26 on Day 1 this week. Roughly the same time that it took to do Day 3 during Week 5 but of course that was lighter. Training schedule got messed up this week so I had a couple unexpected 'rest' days rather than doing all 5 BFB sessions in a row. I still did sprints etc on the rest days but didn't have time to do the full sessions.
