I do at leasr 15 Julie Jacks every day! xD The story behind this is in P.E. on Wednesdays we watch a Biggest Loser workout video.  There's an easy version and a hard version of every excercise. Anyway, the "easy version" of jumping jacks is where you take a step to the side and clap your hands above your head instead of jumping.  For whatever reason everyone started calling them "Julie Jacks".

Doing jumping jacks probably won't help much with anything unless you're really obese, but even then there are better cardio exercises to do, like walking/jogging and swimming.

I know. I don't even do jumping jacks. I just wanted to bring the Julie Jacks thing up.

I'm surprised I have no soreness today, I expected some lower back soreness because of deadlifts, but there's nothing.

Rest day, tomorrow is chest/shoulders/triceps. I'm gonna keep my bench press between 8-10 reps so I can build up more stamina.

Did poorly on these because I didn't have much back support. I had to use this one bench that didn't cover your upper back. So my lower back was on the bench, but my upper back didn't have anything behind it.

Lateral raise (dumbbells, standing):
25 x 4 - 10

Skull crushers (ez-curl bar, seated):
75 - 12
85 - 10
85 - 10
85 - 8

Cable push downs (v-bar):
120 - 12
130 - 12
140 - 12
150 - 10
Underestimated myself here, next time I'll start out with around 140.

This man is a beast.
Deadlifts 700+ pounds like it's nothing, no straps or belt. That means incredible grip strength and impressive core/lower back strength. He didn't use straps or a belt at all in the vid, and in the middle of it he just goes to bench press 460 pounds with no leg drive for reps.

Da hell? I'd probably die if I did that. Jesus...

Yeah, he's also deadlifted more than three times his bodyweight.
