    Hopefully with less in those areas you are rewarded with more in the way of cold hard cash!

    yeah that's the idea.
    my mortgage and child support are killin me.

    obamacare has curtailed movement in the insurance segment, effectively flatlining my career for the last couple yrs.

  7. Man I couldn't take a lot more activity right now... I am pretty beat most of the time.. I sleep good though and keep recovering...ahead of the curve. Extra work take a chunk sometimes, training early AM realy does help...

  8. eating what i call my 3-B meal right now..

    beef, black beans, and broccoli.

    no pic (no time!) but you get the idea.

  9. You will be able to make the adjustments I think, you're an expert in making good use of your time in the gym, intensify and shorten workouts less rest between sets etc... you'll find a way...

  10. In my limited experience, throttling back (extra days rest, reduced intensity, volume, etc.) has never hindered my progress physically, only psychologically. Quite the contray, when I listen to my body and ignore my inccesant 'discipline' I tend to make surprising progress. That discipline that once was a positive force for good has at times taken on a life of it's own - a life that sometimes deprives me of balance, that in this season of my life, is more important than ever....FWIW
    I have no enemies. My friends intensely despise me.

  11. surely, guys.
    balance is an important part of life..and, DD you are correct - it is more psychological than physical, the progress/frequency of training aspect.
    altho i do have to say, i look/feel better when i am training more frequently, as opposed to cutting down activity immensely.
    eh..not a big deal, in the grand scheme of things.
    thanks for the reassurance.

    Well stated.

  13. okay, next training phase looks like this:

    day #1 - lower body/rep scheme 1
    day #2 - upper body/rep scheme 1
    day #3 - lower body/rep scheme 2
    day #4 - upper body/rep scheme 2
    day #5 - lower body/rep scheme 3
    day #6 - upper body/rep scheme 3
    day #7 - rest
    repeat

    Lower Body Workout
    A1) Deadlift
    A2) Narrow Stance Squat
    B) Calf Press


    Upper Body Workout
    A1) 30-degree Incline DB Bench Press
    A2) Supinated Grip Pullups
    B) Dips
    Optional: Incline Bicep Curl and/or Standing DB Military Press
    NOTE: Casually alternate between movements 1 and 2; do not superset.


    The Rep Schemes
    Scheme 1: 3 x 6-8 to absolute failure
    Scheme 2: 6 x 4
    Scheme 3: 2 x 10-12 to absolute failure
    NOTE: While Iím not normally a proponent of training to failure, it is necessary when only
    performing 2-3 work sets to ensure max stimulation. Mnetally fight for every last rep.


    so, catching the training up-to-date:
    FRI 9/28
    day #1

    SAT 9/29
    day #2

    SUN 9/30
    day #3

  14. Interesting set up, me likey.

    very effective, keeps you mentally fresh.
    and - WILL wear you down, believe me.
    program changes again in 2 weeks..just hope i can keep up with the frequency, as it is important to maintain with the lowered volume of daily work in play.
    if not, then i will change things up.

  16. Do you have a trainer that sets this up for you Snag? Looks rather interesting.

    no cel, i don't use trainers. i am a trainer lol.
    but - you must've missed it.
    while i usually use my own programs, i'm actually doing the Freak workout by Jon Doyle, who is a pretty renowned trainer.

    I didn't know Snag sorry !! Seems like a high-paced and painful version of the Eric Broser workout (Rep-Range-Shock) , not bad bro !! I had to get my mind off from the Failure mindset :/ Idk if I could get back into it haha.


    Curious to see how this treats yah brother !

  19. man..my calves are lookin pretty gnarly today.

  21. day #4 today, moving to rep scheme 2 on upper body.

    felt good, used 115s thruout my 6 sets on incline DB bench..i think lugging them things up and down myself is more tiresome than the actual reps themselves..
    oughtta make for some beefy forearms if done regularly for an extended period of time, LOL.

    only downside is, my elbows been bothering me a bit lately....

  22. Downside to getting strong when using DBs for sure. Military presses are brutal with them. Not good about the elbow.

  23. started bothering me couple weeks ago, thought it was tennis elbow at first - but then it crept into both elbows.
    been getting steadily worse, now very tender on the inside part of the elbow.
    no doubt it's from the DB - been a while since i slung around this heavy of weight, and i'm pushing hard right now....
    not to the extreme of incapacitating yet, and if it continues i may just switch over to BB work for awhile.

  24. I have had to use BB for awhile now because of a forearm tendonitis. Can't grip hard with my left had at all. Have not found any solution for it yet either and not lifting isn't an option. Lol
