    THAT'S ONE OF THEM!! The top guy is Phil Heath, nice job. Now who is the second pro bodybuilder? I thought he was the easy one, that's kind of his signature pose.

    repped!

    70lbs x 10 reps
    80lbs x 8 reps
    90lbs x 8 reps
    100lbs x 8 reps
    110lbs x 8 reps

    Seated, Cable High Curls
    80lbs x 10 reps
    80lbs x 10 reps
    80lbs x 10 reps

    Barbell Reverse Curls
    45lbs x 15 reps
    45lbs x 12 reps
    45lbs x 10 reps

    I was able to lift more on my opening bi's exercise today. It is a definite and apparent strength increase, however, it is such an isolated muscle, therefore, its not as exciting as it could be, say if it were bench or deads. Either way, positive symptoms are a positive thing nonetheless.

    F'in A, Volcom, that's a great strength gain, but the same amount of reps is even more impressive !

    Thanks fellas,

    I'm hoping the strength increases will also carry over to the more compound movements. That would be exciting for me.

    The results are clear, concise, and oh so obvious. You are doing an outstanding job on this cycle and this log bro. I knew you were going to like the addition of the BlueUP to the mix. I have used 3 bottles in the past couple of years. I enjoyed it every time. I have just been trying out other natty test-boosters since my last run of the Blue. Most of these others have been much less rewarding. I may have to return to the tried and true BlueUP for the next natty run. I see even bigger numbers coming from you over the next few weeks. Give it Hel bro. I know you will.

    What other test boosters have you been trying? I've used a few, and Blue Up is definitely my favorite. I like dosing the stim-free version pretty high and stack it with some other stuff like 1-C, Stoked, AX, etc.

    I make my own test-boosting stacks now from bulk powders. But the last 2 brand name test-boosters I used were Universal's Animal Stak 2 and BioSciences' Alpha Drive. I've used different ones before. Not many work very well in my opinion. I'm not a big fan of Tribulus products usually. But some companies' extracts are better than others. Controlled Labs is good shizz!!

    Did you experience any effects from the Alpha Drive ? I got two-three bottles about a year or so ago .. I was up to 6 caps day. It didn't do ANYTHING for me. Zit, Zilth, Nada... .. You have a better experience, thunder ?

    I never tried that stuff because I read that it was suppressive.

    I really haven't seen very good review on that stuff. It's been on sale @ Nutra for like $10/bottle for quite a while.

    Yeah, haha, it's been on sale for like 18 months ! . . they still make it ? Or they have a freakishly big inventory due to an ordering-error !? lol .. either way, I won't be throwing $10 precious ones in that direction again.

    Shoulders & Traps


    This has been a trendy workout this week, I think Thomas and Shaddow both hit this yesterday, and now its my turn.

    Standing BB Shoulder Presses
    135lbs x 10 reps
    145lbs x 10 reps
    150lbs x 8 reps
    135lbs x 10 reps

    Seated Military Press
    135lbs x 10 reps
    155lbs x 10 reps
    175lbs x 8 reps

    Db Lateral Raises
    35lbs Db's x 10 reps
    35lbs Db's x 10 reps
    40lbs Db's x 8 reps

    Behind The Neck, Shoulder Presses, machine
    150lbs x 12 reps
    165lbs x 10 reps
    195lbs x 8 reps

    Rear Shrugs, smith
    22lbs x 20 reps
    315lbs x 10 reps
    315lbs x 10 reps
    315lbs x 10 reps

    Db Shrugs
    125lbs Db's x 10 reps
    125lbs Db's x 10 reps
    125lbs Db's x 10 reps
    125lbs Db's x 8 reps
    125lbs Db's x 8 reps
    125lbs Db's x 8 reps

    I really like standing militaries, they feel kind of hardcore. My strength increases are starting to spread across to my other muscles. Yesterday's bi's workout was the first time that a notable strength increase was prevalent, and today was a decent day.

    We'll see how my chest, legs and back are effected.

    I really like standing militaries, they feel kind of hardcore. My strength increases are starting to spread across to my other muscles. Yesterday's bi's workout was the first time that a notable strength increase was prevalent, and today was a decent day.

    We'll see how my chest, legs and back are effected.
    Damn right it's your turn, Volcom, and you OWNED IT !!! Lots of sets, volume, exercises, and tonnage ! Helllssss yessss !!

    For standing barbell presses, you lower to the front ? Chin-deep or chest-deep ? And please explain how you used more weight on SEATED vs STANDING presses . . Feel more secure when you sit down ? Or a lower/faster ascent/descent ?

    WTF... A THIRD PRESSING EXERCISE ?! I JUST SAW THAT PART ! umm . . . Felt good on this one, too ? God dayummm, I do ONE pressing exercise with the occasional 2-4 sets of a different press every once in a while . . . BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU SIDE LATERALS !? Do you feel like the Front Barbell Presses (seated/Standing) hit the front deltoids sufficiently, and hence you don't incorporate anything especially for them ?

    Standing overhead presses utilize a lot more stabilizing muscles all through your core. You can definitely feel it, especially when you go heavy. (Well, I can at least.) I get pretty shaky on my last reps with a lot of weight (for me) on the bar.

    I ****ing love them!!! Started doing them a few months back, and I don't think I'm gonna rotate them out for a while. Definitely feel like they're a great exercise, and they tax the hell out of me!

    Good workout, bro!! And good luck with the continued improvement!

    Something about the standing presses that are a bit unstable for me, so i can't hit the numbers as high. I also don't utilize any knee bends with the standing. I bring the bar down to my upper chest. It rests comfortably in that position because I hold the bar in a palms up, suicide grip, like I do for bench.

    I performed side laterals today, the Db side laterals, 35-40lbs, or you may have been asking where art thou front raises? because you mentioned the front deltoids.

    I feel the shoulder presses(sss) hits them well enough for ME. I don't know if it's a genetic thing or what, but because my posterior delts gets nailed on chest days, too, my anterior deltoids are more developed then the medial, posterior heads, so its a balance thing for me. I primarily focus on the medial head on shoulder days.

    I focus more on isolated work when I'm about 10lbs lighter then I currently am. I need to be a bit more conditioned before I fine tune and sculpt.

    Thomas does those psychotic behind the neck, power presses, so he knows what's up, but maybe he's just got the stability much more down pact.

    I don't have any protein powders right now, so I had to choke down a good 'ol fashioned, cup of 8 egg whites.

    my theory too. i only do presses to the front and arnolds to hit my front delts. then they get more work on chest day because i usually focus on upper chest.

    im a big fan of heavy arnold presses. heaviest ive gone was 70's for a set of 7. i only did it because there was maybe one of the hottest milfs ive ever seen next to myself and a buddy. i tried 70's again the following week and only got 3 reps. FAIL.

    I've been there ! I HATE IT ! . . and what's even more discouraging; OK, you crack open 8 eggwhites.. You're now choking down 20-24 grams of protein. Whooopdi-dooo !! Versus one scoop of Whey protein with 20-24 grams protein in each.

    .. Make it 8 WHOLE eggs, Volcom ! BE A MAN ! lol, just messing with ya ..

    Bahaha. Nice! Women can be distracting, but they can also push you harder than anything else can. I've pushed out extra reps on more than a few occasions because of attractive girls.

    Hahaha, I swear, there is no better pre-workout than about 5-10 minutes of the hardest of the hard-core porn, with lots of tits and screaming on the screen, before you hit up the gym.. Even better; to have a DVD-screen in the car . . When you run outta steam inside the gym, get out there, turn on the moans, and get crackin'

    But in all seriousness .. Hot females are motivating as hell at the gym ! I've performed some feats while having a set or two of some precious tits and boooties in my face

    Hot trainers get me more psyched then hot members. I owe 3 months of dedicated cardio on the stairmaster to having eye ball sex with a trainer.

    Apart from hot girls and hot trainers, the onlooking of a perceived douche bag fuels my lifts, too. It's an indirect punking of all d-bags and d-bag affiliates in the ensuing area. However, this usually only occurs with dead lifts.

    I think I saw you apply for a sponsored log, did you get it? If not, the JW is yours, but if you've got big plans lined up already, then you're set up anyway.

    Third, pump response. Sometimes seeing myself drenched in sweat while I'm wearing a beater is the best intra-stim/stamina/strength placebo I can receive. Don't let there be a hot girl around when I'm all sweaty and juicy, that just adds to the aggression.

    I swear I'm not arrogant, there's just something hardcore about the way your muscles look when they're covered with hard earned sweat and pumped full of blood. And I don't walk around like I'm bringing sexy back, JT style or anything, i think I'm just in an I don't give a duck attitude.
