i am a big fan of stairclimbing [nothing, i repeat nothing] has had as much effect on legs as stairclimbing.I know the erase is supposed to control cortisol, but I really didnt expect it to have any noticeable effects. I guess maybe i was wrong.
Today's workout: (all exercises with Fat Gripz)
A1) Straight Bar Curl: 45x10,55x10,65x10,75x10
A2) Straight Bar Reverse Curl: 45x10,55x10,65x10,75x8
Close Grip Bench: 135x10,185x10,205x8,225x5
Hammer curl: 45x10,45x10,45x10
D1) Cable tricep ext: 50x15,57x15,65x15
D2) Cable tricep pulldown: 50x15,57x15,65x15
The super sets were light, because I was going for more of a pump. I definitely achieved that. Today was the first time I have ever really felt the lateral head of my tricep working, it was pretty sweet.
My legs have started leaning out more. I'm starting to get some quad definition that i've never had before. This should really increase over the next two weeks, since I'm starting my leg specialization tomorrow. I'm still trying to figure out exactly how to set it up...
It will probably be something like this:
Monday: Ham string emphasis (pl squat, ghr, leg curls, sumo leg press, calves)
Tuesday: Hams and Quads (oly squat, RDL, Split squats, calves)
Wednesday: Quad emphasis ( Front squats, leg press, leg ext, calves)
Friday: back and biceps
Saturday: chest, shoulders, tris
I'll probably have to bump up the calories some to keep from atrophying. I'll also be applying any kind of recovery techniques I can think of. I'll probably ice my legs once a day, and use contrast showers, and probably a ton of light stretching.
