interested in how this goes the ads always look great wondering if it lives up to them
your deadlift workout is similart to my Bench Scheme when on I find it works pretty well
02-02-2009, 06:45 PM
and thanks man i kind of came up with the workout myself. I took my deadlift routine from a powerlifting routine. and then the rest of the back workout i noticed arnold ALWAYS having tbar rows and seated rows. Got the idea of the Reverse close grip pulldown from dorian yates workout routine.. just made something on my own haha.. some weeks when i dont deadlift maybe a sore back or something ill do decline bench lat rows, low cable pulls and maybe wide grip latpulldown to burn out..
and idk this might be completely off the wall.. but from what i feel using the 17 HD seems like all the testosterone is used just during my workout. I found it really hard to preform with a chick right after workout. However after an 1hr or 2 post workout i need about 5 chicks haha.
anyways tommorow is arm day gonna do
Reverse machine bench 3 sets about 5,5,3
weighted dips 10,8,6
curly bar? pulldowns 3 x 10
vbar pull downs 3 x 10
Alternating standing dumbell curls 2 sets 8-10
Hammer Curls 2 sets of 10
Cable single arm curls 3 x 10
Smith Machine Drag Curl 3 x 10
2 sets preacher start out with 25 and 5 then next set a 25
then 2 10's on each side and do reverse grip preacher curls and hit some abs im out.. ill post exact numbers tommorow and let you know about the progress.
02-03-2009, 05:50 PM
had nothing but a protien bar in the morning had class at 1:30 woke up 10ish had to stop at gnc to get some protien powder. took a pill with two scoops of fast twitch was ready to hit the gym felt great
started out with
1.80 x 10
2.90 x 8
3.100 x 6
went ten pounds heavier each set and did the same amount of reps as last week.
Reverse Grip Bench
1. 225 x 5
2. 240 x 4
3. 255 x 4
did 250 for 3 last week but i did reverse grip bench first last week! so thats quite in improvement.
Did the Curly bar pulldown (anyone know the actuall name of the bar?)
1. 80 x 10
2. 80 x 9
3. 90 x 4
did them on the cybrex machine? which feels real heavy compared to the regular cable pulldowns that are with the free weights? IN the regular pulldown machines i can hit 95 3 sets of 10 but thats not that hard..
Then did Tri Rope Pulldowns (not on cybrex machine)
1. 70 x 15
2. 80 x 12
V-bar Pulldown on cybrex
1. 90 x 10
2. 90 x 10
1. 95 x 10
2. 105 x 8
3 115 x 4
Alternating Dumbell Curls
1. 40 x 10
2. 40 x 9
Smith Machine drag curls
1. 35's x 10
2. 30 x 10
3. 25 x 12
1. 40 x 8
2. 35 x 10
reverse preacher curls
1. 15lbs on each side plus bar x 10
2. 15lbs on each side plus bar x 10
overall after arms felt trenmendous strength increase in reverse bench and Weighted Dips. switched to cybrex machines so i could go heavier since the 95 pound limit on the Pulldown machines in the fee weight area is getting too light. I almost matched my lifts in the cybrex and it seems heavier. felt tremondus pumps in the tri's
Biceps Curls went up espcially since i did them after triceps. Usually i do alternating one tri set one bi. Did both sets on alternating curls on 40s instead of 35 then 40. Got more cleaner reps with the 40s on concentration curls. Drag Curls also felt easier.
was drained after the workout. felt a sweet pump also been staying sore a little longer? prehaps working hard and adding alot of weight pretty fast. anyways leg day tommorow. Im new to workin legs out hard so well see how that goes. and then a day off and benching on Friday cant wait
anyone wanna give me a suggestion for bench friday i did
230 for 2 sets of 3 last friday the 6 rep was kinda hard not too bad.
should i go 240 2 sets of 3 or just go up 5 pounds?
02-04-2009, 11:54 PM

2. 185 x 5

02-05-2009, 10:30 AM
well i take it along with fast twitch so i cant really tell u exactly how much energy it gives me. but i do feel alot more ready/confident when im going for my heaviest set
02-06-2009, 12:16 PM
02-07-2009, 02:41 AM
ya fast twitch is made by cytosport and it has 200mg of caffiene per scoop so i dont take it on off days and plus my shake has creatine so i dont see the purpose of taking it on off days...
Ive taken NO xplode, Super Pump, Track NO extreme, Armageddon, anabolic stack nothing compares preworkout to fasttwitch
and just to update everyone on my log i STARTED to workout chest today for heavy bench. I was feeling slight pain in my elbows. I stretched out started lifting
warmed up with the bar for 20
135 x 5
165 x 5
195 x 2
215 x 1
240 x 1 was suppose to get 2 sets of 3 maybe 2?
Just felt like my lockouts were taking forever i didnt have that burst on lockouts. and my elbows were hurting around where the triceps connect to it. Im hoping taking sat-sun off monday doing a light bench and tricep workout
wed- Shoulders/rotator cuffs
friday- heavy bench.
im hoping that with alot of eating and shakes and rest/ice does the trick.
02-09-2009, 02:46 PM
ok took sat and sunday off fridays workout was cut shirt because of shoulder elbow/tricep pain.. Had to start a new routine because the pain of all the tricep/bicep work was killing me and i was peaking on bench about to set a new personal record. Found an intresting routine on tnation.
it goes like this 5 sets of 1 on ur 3 rep max in parenthesis is what weight i used.
T-bar Rows (160)
Shoulder press (200)
Front Raise (70)
then you go back threw it 3 sets of 6 with 20% less weight. for the pump part of the wowrkout the above part was the power part.
Tbar rows (115)
shoulder press (160)
front raise (50)
workout kicked my ass. The goal is to work up to 8 sets of 1 and then add weight drop back to 5 sets of 1 and keep the cycle going gonna run this for awhile see how it works. Wednesday is bench and deadlifting so that will tell alot if this is easier on the joints..I feel pain free after the workout today. Im gonna post more on this workout in the powerlifting fourms...
O and i started nano vapor today felt really mentally focused not much energy/caffiene buzz..
02-09-2009, 02:51 PM
i was thinking bout buying some of this a long time ago but then i read that it was a waste of money
interested in seeing what kinda results u get
gl with ur log
02-09-2009, 03:05 PM
yea alot of reviews said it was amazing others said it was a complete waste. I started taking it right when my bench press was peaking and i was looking to set a new max so ill try to give u the best review i can and let u know if it works man!
02-11-2009, 09:20 PM
Yesterday just did a 30 min run starting at 4.5 mph and worked up .5 mph every 5 mins and ran in a hoodie. sweated a **** ton..
Today's workout was simple
Bench press 5 x 1 (235)
Weighted dips 5 x 3 (115)
just did 3 reps cuz one dip is stupid and its hard as hell to keep undoing the belt and doing it again.
Sumo Deadlift 5 x 1 (365) No straps just a belt first time doing sumo's im bumping up to 375 next week.
3 x 6 Pump part of routine
Sumo Deadlift (295)
Incline Chest Press (180) last set (190)
Ez bar Pulldowns (95lbs heavy as it goes)
couple change to the routine
1. I put in weight dips instead of Weight pullups as pullups work back and this routine has enough back in it already and Weighted pull ups are HELL on my shoulders. I also switched it to 5 sets of 3 instead of 5 x 1 because 1 rep dips seemed kinda dumb.
2. Did incline press on 3 x 6 instead of regular bench because i never get to hit incline.
3. Did Tricep Pulldowns with the ez bar instead of 3 x6 on dips because my elbows hurt.
Overall felt like the 17hd is helpiung in a pure strength standpoint. The NanoVapor is a hell of a supplement too and i hate muscletech. Its almost up there with fast twitch for me.
Im gonna keep doing the Weighted Dips at 5 x 3 and do them for the 3 x 6 part of my workout to once my tricep soreness is gone. The ez bar pulldowns were just today
Im also keeping the incline press on the 3 x 6 insted of flat bench for varitation.
Next workout is friday idk What im doing maybe just supersetting light bicep and triceps? Ive worked Chest, back and legs hard this week so im thinking just light bicep and triceps. Im also trying to keep cardio up and intense two times a week because i dont wanna keep as much muscle tone as i can while on this routine. Also with school sometimes i just gotta grab subway/Wendys or something to eat something instead of starving myself.
02-14-2009, 04:34 AM
Did Tri's and Bi's today More for a pump the weight dips provide good strength for the Tris and i have been hittin the tris hard to peak at the end of my bench routine...
1. 95 x 10
2. 85 x 12
3. 75 x 15

Smith Machine Drag Curl
1. 95 x burn out 13 reps
Tricep Overhead Rope pulls
Burned out doing these 10 reps 12 reps 15 reps from 40-60 pounds
Pumps were sick i used 17hd and NanoVapor pre workout. couple notes
1. barbell Curls didnt really go heavy i wanted a good pump and something easy on the joints
2. 180 degree preacher curls are really aqkward but give an amazing pump especially since ur standing all the pressure is on the Bi's
3. Smith Machine Drag curls did clean reps Burned out had nothing more to do for biceps
4. took me a couple tries at the Tricep rope overhead pulls but got a good pump going once i got the hang of it.
Sat and Sunday is off. Monday im doing Shoulder Press Tbar Rows and Squat if i can hit all 7 sets of 2. Im moving up the weigh 10 pounds and going for 5 sets of 2 next week. Whatever workout i fail getting 7 x 2 im keeping the weight same next week.
02-16-2009, 02:51 PM

What was the name of that workot on t-nation? I'd like to take a look at that and see what it's all about.

Reverse Grip bench Press (Smith)
1 set of 14 with 225
summary- workout got thrown off today my headphones plug was Fed up i always bench in my garage then do the other lifts at the gym ( have to take 10 min break after bench to drive to the gym). So i stop in at rite aid on my way to the gym and got another pair of headphones get to the gym those dont fit in my ear too big! Then the weighted dip belt was stolen so i had to find a replacement workout. The Deadlift Squat rack had the hardcore curlers taking it up. My supps were wearing off so i jsut added 10 pounds and did 5 sets instead of 7. I also replaced the Pump deadlifts with pulldowns cuz i get more of a pump and its easier on the back.
Did my best ever lifts on reverse bench. Sumo deadlift and even Pulldowns =)..
next weeks a big test on bench 240 is my biggest fear i swear haha. Ive done 2 reps on 240 before then hurt my shoulder. since then i always get stuck on 240 for 1 and even if i try rest pause or try 2 sets of 2 on 240 im stuck. Theres been no workout that ive hit 240 for more then 2 reps in anyway.. so if i can hit 240 5 sets of 1 im gonna be have shaatered a plateau.. anyways tahts all for today.. Friday i do a super set arm routine, carido tommorow and sat sun off..
any questions just post em love to tell u guys more since u all help a ton.

ok so i did arms today and have been working in shoulders as well since im just starting to train them directly. For arms i usually just do whatever i feel like for the day to get a good pump going i think i do enough tricep work for strength, so i kinda just hit whatever i want fridays.

This review probably didnt help much lol, I just use fridays to get a really good pump in my arms using lifts that arent taxing on my joints and ligaments. Feels like the longer ive been working out my arms dont need to much work to get a sweet pump going ?? anyone else ever felt this way? Anyways thats all for today.
Monday im doing Front Dumbell Swings Tbar Rows Shoulder Press and Squats all 5 sets of 1-2 reps again and rasing the weights 10 pounds each exercise.. so ill post then and let u guys know how it goes !
any questions just ask!
