    haha. on the other hand, id be very interested if you DID run that log of 1500 per week. could be the making of a monster.

  3. damn dude, first time I have caught those dead vids... very impressive... I dont dead cause Ive always had a ****tay lower back, not even going to tempt it. Im stuck to shrugs and classic extended rows to hit the lower back and traps the way a dead does... of course its no where near the same intensity.

    Will NP's Cissus do this? Or is Super Cissus Rx needed @ 9 grams for anabolic effects ?

    evry one is diffenrt, i have had great anabolic effects from 4 to 5 grams aday dosing especaly aroud my workouts befor and after.
    taking 1.5-2.0 grams with unrefined coconut oil gives me that strongest pumps

    You and I are currently in the same boat. I overcompensate the lack of deads with extensive shrug exercises; I try to perform shrugs on shoulder days and back days, but nothing appropriately makes up for deads.

    I'm a fanatic for well developed traps and well developed forearms.

  10. Those are some great vids, Volcom. My deads seem to be the one exercise that suffered from my weightloss.
  11. Pre-Prime; Brachioradialis emphasized, biceps day


    As mentioned before, I am a fanatic of refined and defined forearm development, in particular, the brachioradialis, forearm extensors and forearm flexors in that hierarchy of admiration and personal priority.

    I sometimes forefront my forearms on biceps days and of course I have "regular" biceps days.

    Db Hammer Curls
    60lbs Db's x 10 reps
    65lbs Db's x 8 reps
    70lbs Db's x 6 reps

    Vertical Preacher, One Arm Db, Cross-body hammer curls
    40lbs Db's x 10 reps, each arm
    45lbs Db's x 8 reps, e.a.
    50lbs Db's x 6 reps, e.a.

    Barbell Reverse Curls
    65lbs x 10 reps
    85lbs x 8 reps
    105lbs x 6 reps

    Cable Rope Curls
    100lbs x 10 reps
    120lbs x 10 reps
    140lbs x 6 reps

    Cable, EZ Bar Reverse Curls
    100lbs x 10 reps
    120lbs x 10 reps
    140lbs x 8 reps

    Cable, One Arm, Reverse Curls
    40lbs x 10 reps, e.a.
    50lbs x 10 reps, e.a.
    60lbs x 8 reps, e.a.

    Strange enough, I will not have any DOMS from this. I don't ever get DOMS anywhere these days, however, I get DOMS in my chest after every single workout. It's very weird.

    Strangely enough, I have never gained nor loss strength in my dead lifts as a result of body mass (my bench and shoulder strength have been effected by body mass, but not dead lifts). I've been as heavy as 230lbs, but I hit my strongest dead PR's (the 495lbs x 2) at 211lbs. I was performing deads consistently and without complications at that time, nor were my bent over rows ever effected by body mass. I could barbell row 405 just the same at 211 as I could at 230.

    See, all that talk is way over my head, I've never supplemented with anything I couldn't buy at NP or BB.com.

    that is so beastly dood. im barely pulling 225 for sets of 5 or 6 on rows.

    I naturally excelled at BB rows, so i can't really say I earned it. I picked it up and started at 225, and I added weight consistently week in week out until I reached 405 for consistent 10 reps. My peak strength on BB rows was 475 for 6, but I never got a chance to exceed beyond that level.

    My ability to BB row and dead lift are not an accurate reflection of my general back strength. Based on those two movements, it accredits me with more then I am. i can't do 315lbs lat pull downs for 15 reps like Thomas or TG, but I'm sure my BB rows were well in their arena. I attempted 495 row, but I hit 2 or 3 and was like, yeah... these are dead lift numbers on BB row, not my time yet.

    well man if u dont get sore from yor workout, time to change it up!
    one thing that ive always went by
    more intensity more growth
    if im not sore i need more intensity, or a differnt routine
    just my 2 cents

  19. Sheesh. The most expensive thing would be the filters.

    I could do a 20week cycle @ 1,500mg/wk for ~$60 after everything! Ahahaha!

    ...but why again do I toy with myself? Because I'm not going to.

  20. Soreness means nothing.

    yeh yer right

  22. It's NICE to be sore. I get a feeling of accomplishment from it, but it really doesn't play a role in anything. I realized that when I was doing low-volume training.

    Thanks for the input. However, I don't follow a regular routine. I may keep the same starting compound exercises for each muscle group, but beyond that, it's not much of a "routine," I generally mix things up from week to week. This is why the only strength PR's I like to measure are my starting compound movements, because the following exercises are not usually performed in the same order, if at all.

    Even if you naturally excell at exercises such as BB rows, in no way does that diminish your accomplishment. That would only be the case if you were wasting yout talent away...say like this :

    AGREE, I used to think it was important until I realized I was making gains independent of DOMS.

  29. Nice log so far, Volcom!

    Good stuff buddy, i never worry about DOMS anymore, i seem to get better gains without it.
    Chest muscle seems to be very sensitive to lactic acid burn and DOMS, im not sure why but im exactly the same.

    Good to have you back Timber. Nothing changed too much in your absence. I think it was Benjamin Franklin who said, "nothing in life is certain but death and taxes." The AM version is, "nothing in life is certain but Volcom and ANOTHER damn log."

    Thanks Aussie Made. I considered it when I first got into bodybuilding. I think a lot of high schoolers "considered" it to some degree. I thought I was cursed with the super human special ability to not be able to progress, but after awhile with knowledge and experience, I realized bodybuilding was "naturally" a marathon for most.

    My strength was always fast to excel, perhaps blessedly so, but my primary concern was the short coming of the lack of morphology in my physique. Come to find out, I was simply too chunky of a monkey in high school for abs or any rock like contour to surface. Live and learn.

    I appreciate the compliment Dragonfly. I know there's a thin line between humility and unable to receive a proper compliment, I seem to go back and forth on that line. Don't know why?

    DAMN MY CHILDHOOD SUPPRESSED SOMETHING OR RATHER.... perhaps if I watch Dr. Phil season one on DVD I can figure this out.

    I wished my back behaved in the same manner. I believe back DOMS deliver the most psychological, "job well done" feeling for me, and I just simply enjoy Traps DOMS.

    Nah, by abrogate I meant 'shut down' - in light of the gear-price talk!
