  1. You look great bro, thats awesome work!! The only thing I think you should work on is your forearm size... and get your shoulders to peak out a bit more and youll be looking SICK! That is pretty close to what I am working on right now, I been spending allot of time building up those 2 things and what a huge difference it makes!


  2. Agreed any tips on either? Especially the shoulders?

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    250+g protein is my only goal. I am not recording calories right now. I'd estimate 3500-4000 most days easy. To much fat in my diet right now to be honest. I will start to slowly cut in jan. I just make sure not to put to much fat on. If I start I clean up my foods while keeping the quantity high.

  6. Lacking updates. Just starting to get back into the swing with new job and injuries.

    Today my notable lifts.

    2 sets of bench @ 300lbs x 5
    3 sets speed/explosive bench @ 225

    405 DL 1" raised platform(lengthens ROM) 5 sets ranging 1-3 reps
    275 + thick bands explosive DL. 5 of 5

    DL super set with military press. Explosive sets, heavy sets, and drop sets.

    Felt strong today, I want to get my athleticism back, then I have to get rid of a belly I acquired by eating like a normal American (eating ****)

  7. In for more updates. Solid stuff in here so hoping it picks up again soon.

  8. Thanks. Work has been Insane no training today. Surprised im not even sore.

  9. Sure man, I been doing 3 sets heavy one arm deltoid side raises, hold on to bench with one arm. Then I go hit shoulder fly machine, do 3 sets one arm at a time. Also doing heavy to med rear delt raise, 3 sets. This along with your basics, I noticed no matter how much I do shoulder presses they don't make a peak on my shoulders!! Now what I have been doing has made a huge impact on how much they peak out the side now! Keep heavy on those just like you would doing a shoulder press, I think it help makes for a more rounded muscle... I spent years only doing heavy presses and every thing else med to light weights and higher reps, it don't work! Not sure if this helps... Good luck and good work bro.

  11. Great week training so far. My new plan consists of...

    Start with a major compound exercise
    Warm up
    2 heavy sets 3-4 reps. Long break. These sets should be 100% effort
    3 sets of 5 focusing on speed and explosion.

    Assistance work as needed.

    Not a very descriptive plan. Assistance work will focus on my weak points. My main focus is explosive strength and recovery time.

    Diet: bulk but really need to start to clean it up more than recently admittedly.



  12. My shorts got caught the set before and I was annoyed. it wasn't pretty but it was mid work out after a long day at work, I was surprised I had the energy.

    Bench
    300x4
    300x3(1)
    225 explosive x5
    195 explosive (closer grip) x5,5

    DL
    warm ups
    315x5
    405x4 (felt I could do more so I saved the energy)
    455 x 1 (see video)
    315 w bands x 5 (this was supposed to be explosive)

    5 super sets
    Some weird shoulder exercise I do
    seated box jumps (12" seat jumping 36-42")

    Military press
    again explosive
    135 x 6,8,5,5 (ran out of time)

    All in all my work out was on par even though work had kicked my ass that day.

  13. Strong pull! You should feel good about that regardless of how pretty it may not have been. You enjoy sumo DLing?

    My explosive sets are done with a regular stance. They were to heavy last time. Really 225 with thick bands is better. Ass from floor to as fast as a stand up I can.
    I just use sumo to assess my progress/stroke my ego.

  16. Thanks! Love that shirt. Got a lot of complements on it actually at the gym.

    I didn't get out of work in time yesterday. By the time I got to the gym I'd have 20 mins. I went grocery shopping instead. I will have a good amount of time tonight though. I'm feelin squat day (and of course explosive work)

  17. Haha I actually see your deadlifting! I remember recommending that to you months and months ago because you hated them! Now your making videos!

  18. I haven't been able to think of a clever response... I hope to hit 500 in a short time.

    Lol I remember that too...haha. And hell yeah a sweet graphic tank at the gym is where it's at!

  20. Nice sumo deads! Do you like them better?

  21. I do them both ways. I have a love / hate relationship with both

    What do you think is better for mass?

  23. Dem aesthetics brah... Forearm is kind of out of proportion but lookin good!

  24. Remember I am not a body builder per say. Everyone wants to look good but it's not the main focus.

    Nice bulk. Interested to see where you're at after you cut. I'm sure you put on some nice mass.
