  2. Re-living the old


    Due to blown erectors, I am limited to vertical movements in my back exercises for the time being. I performed some horizontal resistance during my last back workout, keep a real keen attention on avoiding any leaning back in order to protect my erectors and i still somehow, re-aggravated my erectors into the point of muscle spasms.

    The real blow here, is I absolutely cannot perform my beloved dead lifts. You won't be seeing any dead lift logs during my PRIME run, but I wanted it to be known that I LOVE dead lifts, they are my favorite lift. The strongest I've ever gotten was 495lbs x 2 reps.

    I'm going to post "OLD" dead lift videos to ensure my love and wish that I could be doing deads if able.

    I have a 405 for 6 or 8 reps, which isn't that great. During my peak I could hit 10 on any given Sunday, and my second video is 475 for 3 reps, and my best with these are 6 reps. These were taken after a 3 month break from a SERIOUS re-aggravation of my lumbar during last spring, which kept me bed ridden for 3 days. This would be my 3rd session back, since I stopped 3 months prior, which is why my performance was about 60% of what I was able to do.

    Damn injuries... Life goes on. There you have it, so when my back workouts look very one sided, primarily vertical movements, it's because I'm forcefully relegated to it, not because I've gone full retard.

    .. all I'm saying is, it's quite unbelievable how hyped up a product got; to the point where people nearly insist on taking it, and at times, plan to take it in a double dosage (compared to label recommendations, 2 caps X 3 times daily vs 12 caps/day) to 'guarantee' the results or some kind of gains.
    Test E = $1.10/g + BA/BB + Whatman + Vials = more like $90 for 12 weeks cough, cough



    Aside from that, I do not think anybody is really suggesting that PRIME need be run at 9 [email protected] to achieve results, not by any means. I merely mentioned in a thread I had experienced dose-dependent results at 9 caps as compared to 6, and Volcom decided that was something he was interested in; that being said, the vast majority of individuals experiencing positive results were using it as per label directions.

  5. Are you going to update your Sig with the Prime log Volcom?

    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.

  8. 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.

  15. Those are some great vids, Volcom. My deads seem to be the one exercise that suffered from my weightloss.
  16. 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.

  22. It used to be .70/g prior to Operation Raw Deal but, it is best we refrain from speaking about this further lest Volcom's log be abrogated.

    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

  24. 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.

  25. Soreness means nothing.
