  1. Today was back and biceps. Back was alright, I went up a little in a couple of things. I think last week I was possessed by some powerful force while doing bent over BB rows. I tried the same weight this time and had to cheat pretty badly to get it up. Overall had a good back workout. Biceps were very frustrating today. I did not go up in anything. It is strange because I am seeing and feeling a difference in my biceps, and I always get a good pump, but I just can't get them stronger. I sat there in between sets thinking about what I was doing wrong and I came to the conclusion that it is my right forearm that is holding me back from making strength gains. I had denied this for a while but now I realize that it is the truth. It always gives out before anything else, not just on biceps exercises. So, in order to bring it up, I will be using my hand grips a little bit every day with just my right arm to try to bring balance. Saturday and Sunday are off days so they will be good days to start.


  2. Had you injured the right forearm Lusus? Grip is so important in everything....sounds like a good plan to bring it up.

    Never had an injury, it's just that my left arm is far more dominant than my right arm. I'm not sure why, but I'm going to be using my hand grips a little bit every day to even them out.

  4. Try tugging it more with the right...j/k bubba!! Throw in an extra set of hammers or pinwheels for the right arm and keep working it a little more until it catches up.

    Good idea it can't hurt to switch thing up lol. I started a different routine on Monday, which is a three-day split. I did chest, shoulders, and triceps. That seems like a lot for one workout but it was only three exercises each since I will be doing them again on Thursday. I didn't have anyone to spot me on chest, so I did not attempt to move up in weight. I tried more to get of a feeling from the movements. Same with shoulders and triceps. The strange thing is that it is Wednesday and my chest is still sore so I did something right. Good workout. Tuesday was legs. Instead of adding weight to my squats, I decided to drop weight and use better form and go down further. My legs burned from doing this. When I was done with quads and hamstrings I thought I was going to throw up. I guess that means I pushed myself yesterday I think that my legs are coming along better than any of my other bodyparts.

  7. Today my legs are sore just I thought they would be. I did back, biceps, and forearms today. Again, I did not move up in weight, but focused more on the movements to get more feeling. I got a good pump in every body part. I really felt it in my biceps even though I only did two exercises for them. On forearms I tried to put more emphasis on my right arm. I had a hard time flexing it when I was through Good workout today.

  8. It will take some time to get it even but, keep at it.

  9. Today I did chest, shoulders, and triceps. First I did DB bench presses. I always use the heaviest in the gym (85s) but today I could only find one of the two DBs. This was somewhat frustrating, so I used the 80s and tried to get better quality reps. Incline flyes and cable crossovers went well though I did not add weight. Got a good pump in my shoulders. They seem to be filling out a little. Do you think DB or BB shoulder presses are better when standing or sitting? The program doesn't specify so I was wondering what you all thought is better. I did standing today. Triceps were great. I only did 2 exercises for them but still got a strong pump. It was very warm in the gym today and I had a good sweat going on. I would much rather sweat than be cold though

  10. I love sweating like mad when working out. Your question on standing or sitting military presses really has no one answer being better than the other. The standing press will not be as heavy as the sitting just because of having to stabalize yourself in order to perform it. I rotate back and forth with sitting one week and clean and presses the other. Keep pounding bubba!!

  11. Yesterday was legs. The program called for front squats. I haven't done those for a while so I really felt it working. I didn't use more weight than I used to, but I was going down lower. All of my other exercises went good. Once again I had a great workout for my legs. Today I did back, biceps and forearms. I think using lighter weight with better form is working very well. I only did three exercises for back, but it did the job and I got a strong pump. For some reason my biceps were sore today before I even started to lift. I have no idea what caused it since I did legs yesterday. I only did two exercises for biceps, but they felt like they were going to explode. I'm still holding a pump in them. Once again on forearms, I tried to pump more emphasis on my right arm. It seemed to work well. Good workout today.

  12. Do you think your biceps were being used at all holding the bar on your shoulders for the front squats? If not that then the back workout hits them pretty good as well. As far as form...never get sloppy for heavier weight. Stick to the good form and the weights will come. Have a great weekend Lusus!

  13. I try to rest the bar on my shoulders as much as I can and stick my elbows straight out so it is on a level surface. I didn't use too much biceps effort on squats. They were sore even before I started my workout. It is weird

  14. Alright I started the new week off well. I weighed myself in the middle of my workout and I was 215, so I went up four pounds I believe. Good progress there. Today was chest, shoulders, and triceps. I felt strong all day. I went up a little with incline presses, decline, and flyes. Shoulders didn't change too much but I still felt them. Triceps went good. I added a little more weight on close grip presses and grinded out a few more reps with one-armed extensions. Overall a solid workout.

  15. Congrats on the 4 pounds bubba! That is awesome. I would love to get a 4 pound gain. Keep it going Lusus.

  16. Yesterday was legs. Once again I did not add weight but focused on quality. I think I went down a little further on squats. I bent down lower on Romanian deadlifts and got a crazy burn in my hamstrings. Today was back, traps, biceps, and forearms. I did not add any weight again but my lats felt like they were going to pop haha. Once again for traps I was restricted to the max DB weight of 85. I still felt it because I took very little rest in between to make it harder. Biceps were alright. I can't seem to go up in weight but I can tell they are developing which is strange. Good pump in my forearms once again I tried to focus on my right arm. I had somewhat of a pump all day today. I'm not sure what determines if I have one of those all day pumps. It usually goes in small cycles. I don't know what it is I do since I pretty much do the same thing every day.

  17. Maybe the type of carbs you eat or the amount influences the pump. Love feeling pumped all day!

  18. Yesterday was chest, shoulders, and triceps. I had to go to another gym because the one at school was closed. Nothing significant to report. Sorry for being so blunt but I am moving out of the dorm today so I don't have much time.

  19. You do what you can bubba. Have a great weekend!
