    Not to be an A-hole, but why don't you go to failure? Pump is fun, but taking your arms past failure will make em grow.

    failure does not mean set of 25 reps with the ez bar...
    it means taking each working set to failure, thruout the training
    utilizing weight you can hit, for max reps, in 8-12 range (for growth)
    does NOT mean drop the weight, and rep out till you feel a lil burn

    I think I've been effectively wreckin my muscle fibers so far. Are you saying go to failure every set? Or maybe every lift.

    you heard me correctly

    Training To Failure:
    Pushing It To The Limit!

    The key to building massive, powerful muscles is to doggedly increase the training weights you use. But it is only good to increase training poundages if you do so in perfect form. There is a direct correlation between the weight and form.
    Caution! You may find your muscles getting huge, full, developed and striated to the max! Don't worry, this is a normal side effect of integrating the Training to Failure Principle into your workout. Just remember to lift with the right weight using strict form and always lift smart for the greatest gains, while avoiding injuries!

    What is training to failure?

    When beads of salty sweat dripping from your forehead are stinging your eyes like acid rain on the scorched earth, as your veins bulge out of your arms and your whole body tenses with complete muscle contraction, just so that you can barely get your last complete rep up in strict form, that's training to failure.
    Let's go back to the beginning of this barbell preacher curls set. Your mind is set on lifting the weight before you with blazing eyes, nothing can stop your relentless determination, and you're giving every rep of every set everything your body can muster as if your life depended on it. Your focus is beyond comparison. Even that hot girl doing squats in the corner can't distract or deter you from your mission; in fact, she just adds fuel to the fire. You're hell-bent on putting every ounce of energy into this set until your blasted arms can't do another rep. Instead every muscle in your body is brought into one incredible sensation of focus and concentration toward the barbell in your clenched hands. The weight doesn't stand a chance. You continue grinding out another repetition with strict, perfect form in a continuously tensed arc towards a point just below your chin before slowly lowering the weight back down. The assault on your bulging biceps continues with painstaking consistency. Knowing the mass you add to your lower biceps is worth it, you continue to endure the intensity you've created for yourself, cranking out rep after bloody rep until finally your fatigued arms have nothing more to give in strict form under the stress. That's the last possible rep you're able to perform without getting help. You've successfully trained your biceps to failure on that set! Now, just a couple of minutes rest or so before you add weight and get ready to do it all over again!

    Avoiding Overtraining and Why train to failure?

    Many bodybuilders train to failure on each set of their workout, simply because of the amount of intensity it forces out of them. This method of training causes the muscles to respond incredibly well for amazing gains and increased muscle. As long as they are training with strict movements and good form, the risk of injury is minimized, while great strides in muscle mass and strength are gained. Pushing it to the max means you can't get another rep in strict form. When you reach this point, you've trained to failure and you're done with that set. This is the point where it's critical to STOP. Pushing out reps after reaching this failure point can cause micro tears in the muscle fibers and add up to overtraining and injuries. The goal with the Training to Failure Principle is not to overtrain, rather to train to the limit and then stop. This means don't go to 110% of failure or even 100% of failure. Aim for 90-95% muscle failure. Your best guide is your form. Once your form starts slipping, diminishing into cheating or forced reps you are done, but as long as you can crank out another quality rep do it. After a period of recovery time (2-5 minutes), the body will be ready for your next set to be lifted in strict form to failure again. That's the philosophy. You can use it to your advantage along with anabolic supplements, which will allow you to get the most out of your workouts; giving your body the right nutrients and building blocks it needs to recover quickly and grow as fast as safely possible!


    Experienced bodybuilder train to failure program:

    A typical upper-body set for an experienced bodybuilder
    Set One: Warm up with a light weight to get the blood flowing and loosen up the muscles of that group. Perform 15 or so reps with good form.

    Set Two: Up the weight to reap muscle failure at 10 to 12 reps.

    Set Three: Up the weight again to push the muscles to fail at 8 to 10 reps.

    Set Four: Again, stack on some more weight for your POWER SET. Use perfect form and try and crank out six good reps before your muscles fail.

    Set Five: This is optional. Keep the weight the same as the power set and get as many as you can (hopefully another six reps). Only add this into the workout after you've done it for awhile and you're ready to increase the intensity another notch for certain or all exercises.

    Chest Day with some core:

    Flat bench press:
    140x10
    210x5
    230x3(pr)
    190x8
    190x8
    140x15
    140x12

    Incline dumbbell press:
    40x12
    40x15
    40x12

    Dumbbell chest flyes superset with chest presses:
    30x12 flyes ss 10 presses
    30x12 flyes ss 10 presses
    30x12 flyes ss 10 presses

    Decline Pushups:
    4 sets of 15

    Decline ab curls:
    Bw x 15
    25x10
    25x10
    Bw x 15

    Ab wheel of death:
    3 sets of 10(I like these but the form feels tricky)

    Well this is the first time I ever tried 230 on the bench press and I got it somehow which was really fun. About time I passed 220-225, which has been my ONE rep max for about 2 years. I brought my weight on the bench all the way down a few months ago and switched to a wider grip. After months of working on form and adding weight back on, it worked! I'd like to thank Kleen for the tip which he gave me months ago.

    This log isn't about breaking prs but it's still nice to do and is a nice confidence boost. Really can't wait to try out my 1-Andro and Creatrona lean bulk cycle! Never tried a standalone creatine or a strength ph before so I'm very interested.

    a lil less of the bloat potential from by using the two in combination (not that there is much from the andro, but understand we are taking things to another level here)..quicker action from the alpha..together, more active of the base compound = serious heightened response/efficacy

    So you find there is a bit of bloat from the 1-alpha ? That would explain a lot as I dropped a lot of water when I stopped using the DMZ and 1-alpha, was wondering if it was the DMZ that had me holding a bit of water.

    I get more of a bloat on 1-andro, not so much on 1-alpha.
    Think your bloat was probably caused by the DMZ.

    no doug, please re-read
    altho there is some potential for bloat on either one (albeit very little), this would be more indicative to andro, rather than alpha
    you should not bloat on alpha, at all

    now don't misunderstand this and run around stating the difference between the two is you will bloat on 1-andro..
    that is simply not true for majority, and would be dose-dependent probably -- and still, a very low chance of occurring..just less with 1-alpha

    I do use a little more than recommended

    5 caps of 1-andro. (would not recommend so much for less experienced users ofcourse)

    now don't misunderstand this and run around stating the difference between the two is you will bloat on 1-andro..
    that is simply not true for majority, and would be dose-dependent probably -- and still, a very low chance of occurring..just less with 1-alpha
    So it must have been the DMZ, I was really surprised at how much water I dropped but pleased to see I was more cut than I thought. Not a ton do weight 1.5 lbs but I spent a lot of time in the bathroom. Yah I read that before but forgot, old fuggers do that.. more and more as time goes on.

    My diet was right on the mark, or what we planned could be the higher carb days did this but diet did not change much when I lost the water. Would lowering carbs around 25 grams a day do that cuz it happened kind of suddenly, and it was the day after I stopped using DMZ. You keep getting the impression I made bad gains during this period but my pics will show that I didn't. I am leaner now at 204 than I was at 195 when I started. I did not eat like shyte you know that you saw my diet and it was exactly as we layed out.

    doug - all we spoke of was generalized macro split/cal intake..you have to adjust for your own metabolism..and, macros alone simply do not tell whole story -- micros are just as important
    you can be eating within good macro/cal splits, but choosing wrong foods, so you will still have these "water" issues you continually speak of
    if you don't feel diet qas problem....okay; simply observation on my end

    My food choices were good but perhaps not perfect perhaps. You know... all that matters is the water is gone now and I'm looking good. My understanding of diet is not at your level I know that. For instance I ate quite a bit of rice which may not be as good as yams but didn't want to be eating yams all the time as I had some fairly high carbs days. I get what you're saying and I am going to revisit my diet. Do you think par boiled rice an ok choice right now or should I be converting to mostly all yams at this point. That is really the only thing that I was wondering about while planning this next phase. Oh I will post this in my thread ...sorry for the hi-jack

    Okay so I did upload some pics.. o.o

    I've never seen my core like this before. The shaping of it is really coming to the point where I am very happy with it. The problem is my lower stomach or little keg that I have. It is a very stubborn area that I've had ovrr the last 4 years. Never rly been fat since I wrestled but I've always had this tiny gut. Like most people, I want to get rid of it. Being honest with myself, I know this small gut is 95% diet. Hopefully as px black fully kicks in for results I can see this shrink up.

    I think you even broke my record for "no-more-pics then turnaround & post" time
    yep, I see some progress, very notable in the first places it starts to become apparent (shrinking of spare tire)
    to totally eliminate yes will be quality intake, caloric deficit, consistency and -- time

    Thanks man.. I've had it pretty much my entire life, definitely diet though. Even when I do all these lifts and measures to shape my core, I can't rid this stubborn fat haha. It isn't anything drastic but it's always been there ya know? In time..

    "Abs are made in the kitchen", you ever heard that before? It's true. For a male, where you store your fat, first and foremost, is normally your "spare tire". I've been working on mine since February. It's a long road to travel.

    Here's what I notice. You have broad shoulders. You have a good base, a solid foundation. I have also seen pics of your dietary choices. I'd recommend being more selective in the meat department, possibly seeking out lower fat content. Not sure if you're still putting granola bars in your face, but I'd drop those too. Water, and lots of it. No more drinking until you know your diet is on point, and even then there's no reason for it to be a habit. Although PXB is an amazing supplement and will provide you with appetite suppression, don't forget to eat. You have to eat to burn.
