How the animal trains...
Part of a series of sorts.. This thread details my sporatic training style, and trust me you will not find any rhyme or reason to how I train.. I never follow a set routine, nor do I have days I train specific parts.. Everything is completely random..
My eating for now is right here!
I plan to work back tomorrow, possibly quads, we shall see..

The principles I go by are abit simple, I use a mix of DC rest-pause and widowmakers with TUT and high-rep blood volume work.. Rest-pause on certain movements tend to over-stress my CNS, so I end up puking late at night, delayed reaction.. To minimize the Hilton Diet effect, I've cut my worksets down to 2 with maybe 2-3 rests for 15secs before hittin' it again.. HOOAH!

I look forward to the day when I'm at a point where I can just go by feel. I remember reading about a Russian powerlifter who trained !00% by feel, and became one of the best in the world. Great results can be attained without being super-methodical. Pete is a testament to that.
I trained for marathons by feel and made dramatic improvements consistently.
This log should be interesting

Very soon. I have vacation this week, but I'm still busy as hell. I got reassigned at my school so I have to learn a completely new curriculum.Originally Posted by bigpetefox
I should be on top of it in a few weeks (if I stay focused during break).
I'm thinking it might be cool to try that crazy, 6 hour, inch in a day workout we were talking about. Hopefully I'll be running Oratropin. Should help with recovery. Hopefully we can hit up a workout in a few weeks.

I thought I was able to go by feel with my diet for a while, but couldn't get it down right. I still have a lot to go before I get to that point I guess.
anyway, i'll be following!

I feel out workouts as well. I just think ignoring the CNS and how a muscle group is feeling is counterproductive unless you are permanently on cycle or a mutant. I am neither.
I also know from experience what overtraining a group can do..have a messed up left shoulder to show for it.

Dude, I've been training for nearly 17yrs, and 15 of them I trained/ate this way.. The main things to consider whn you try, or if you try this:Originally Posted by cable626
1. You'll need a basic understanding of what certain measurements of food look like, and the breakdown from it..
2. Alternate between using Monday thru Friday for the work week and go MT/TF then MWF..
3. Rest and recovery supplements should be the mainstay, which is why I like to dose high on antioxidants and BCAA's..
What makes this even easier is you really don't need to "follow" anything.. I haven't had an actual training log since I was 16, I stated lifting at 14yrs old.. Getting locked into too much of a structure can hinder gains alot faster than winging it, then again some people benefit from structure..

Bitch, you better give a ****, or i'll penis-flog you!Originally Posted by bigpetefox
i'm curious as to how your program looks brutha, it's obviously working for you. me, i need structure. if i went by feel, i'd do abs, calves, and cardio each day and call it quits. either way, i'll be watching you..........

I saw a tape of Nasser El Sonabaty called Nasser on the way. He trained almost completely by feel as well.
Bodyparts reps etc Somedays he would use lots of supersets and rest pause. Some days very heavy some not. I actually don't think he counted reps he just drained his muscle and then moved on. I guess it works for some folks

I agree with your style all the way. I started training in about 8th grade and towards the end of high school I had absolutely no set structure to my workouts. This is the style that works best for me, and obviously you too. Rock on!!!
