    Very intense arm w/o today. I had a sick pump and im def givin that to mass fx v3 this was unreal. Really didnt expect to have it quick in this fast but im pleasantly surprised. I recently just switched to the power/hypertrophy split. On my hypertrophy days rest is minimal between sets and you are focusing mainly on pump and getting lots of blood flow to the muscle. Monday will be a heavy upper body day so lets set sum PRs and get Swoll!!!!!

ENERGY IS WAY UP. i DID NOT WANT TO QUIT WHEN I DID BUT CHOSE TO SAVE SUM FOR A REAL HEAVY LOWER BODY ASSULT TOMORROW. FELT AGGRESSIVE AND READY TO ATTACK THE IRON WHEN I GOT TO THE GYM. I ALSO GOT A VISCIOUS UPPER BODY PUMP TODAY. THAT USUALLY DOESNT HAPPEN WHEN GOING FOR POWER BECUZ YOU TAKE LONGER REST PERIODS BUT TODAY MY UPPER BODY WAS SWOLL WITH A DEF INCREASE IN VASCULARITY. SOME FAR IM VERY PLEASED WITH V3, NOT SURE IF ITS IN MY HEAD OR WAT BUT THIS STUFF SEEMS TO BE HITTING ME HARD AND ITS ONLY BEEN A COUPLE DAYS SINCE I STARTED DOSING. CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN COUPLE WEEKS. LETS START BREAKING SOME MORE PRS!!!!!!!

    OVERALL TODAY WAS A GOOD WORKOUT. SQUAT WEIGHT WAS REALLY DOWN, NOT SURE WHY BUT I RALLIED FOR LEG PRESS AND STIFF LEGS. i REALLY NEED TO WORK ON MY HIP FLEXIBILTY, THAT SEEMS TO REALLY BE SCREWING ME UP ON SQUATS. THE ONE THING I CAN SAY IS IM STARTING TO FEEL MORE AGGRESSIVE AND AM ALSO EXPERIENCING EXTREME PUMPS EVEN ON MY POWER DAYS WITH 2 SUMTIMES THREE MIN REST BETWEEN SETS. STARTIN TO GET THAT ALPHA MALE MENTALITY WHERE YOU JUST WANT TO NAIL EVERY CHICK YOU SEE SO IM SURE THAT WILL GET MORE INTENSE AS THE CYCLE KEEPS GOING. ON THE ORIGINAL MFX STRENGTH SKYROCKETED IN WEEK 3 SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL KICK IN A LITTLE SOONER BUT WELL SEE. CARBS ARE AROUND 315 OR MORE SO THE STRENGTH WILL HOPEFULLY COME SOON.TOMORROW IS AN OFF DAY WITH CARDIO ABS AND CALVES. i HATE f&^%$@ OFF DAYS!!!!!!

ALPHA MALE METALITY AND AGGRESSION ARE BECOMING MORE PRONOUNCED AS WELL. i HAVE NOTICED A SLIGHT INCREASE IN ACNE ON MY FACE AND CHEST. NOTHING SERIOUS JUST A COUPLE BUMPS HERE AND THERE. WEIGHTS ARE STARTING TO FEEL A LITTLE LIGHTER AND I BELIEVE MY STRENGTH IS INCREASING. THE NUMBERS MAY SEEM LOW BUT KEEP IN MIND YOU ARE ONLY RESTING 30-45 SECS IN BETWEEN SETS. ALSO IM BODYBUILDING NOT POWERLIFTING SO I CHECK MY EGO AT THE DOOR AND MAKE SURE I ESTABLISH THE MIND MUSCLE CONNECTION WITH PERFECT FORM TO MAKE SURE THE MUSCLE GETS THE FULL BENEFIT. MY PHYSIQUE HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY SINCE I STARTED TRAINING LIKE THIS. ON SHRUGS I REALLY LIKE TO GO LIGHTER WITH NO CHEATING ATTEMPTING TO BURY MY TRAPS IN MY EARS. WHEN I STARTED THIS I GOT A NEW SORENESS THAT IVE NEVER FELT BEFORE. OVERALL IM PLEASED WITH MASS FX V3 SO FAR AND CANT WAIT FOR IT TO FULLY GET INTO MY SYSTEM. LEG DAY # 2 TOM LETS BLAST IT!!!!!!!

    yo dedlifter never heard of recline pullups. you mind explaining? I just started doing rack chins, got the idea from layne norton, I love em, seems to take the arms completely out of it and puts the entire load on the lats. On power days i will put some plates in my lap. My gym also has bands so i like to do banded pullups. You look like a ***** using bands but hey, u gotta check ur ego at the door and take that muscle thru the full range. Bands really let you sqeeze at the top for a full contraction.

    HOLY $%^@ THE PU,MP TODAY WAS ABSOLUTELY INSANE. AFTER I FINISHED LEG PRESS I COULD HARDLY WALK BUT PUSHED MYSELF TO FINISH. HAMSTRINGS LOCKED UP ON THE LAST SET OF DEADS, I COULDNT HAVE PULLED ANOTHER REP IF I TRIED. i TRIED FRONT SQUATS FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY, THATS WHY THE WEIGHT SEEMS A LITTLE LOW. iM HOOKED ON THESE NOW AND AM GOING TO PUT THEM IN MY POWER DAYS. i REALLY LOVE THE WAY THEY TEAR UP YOUR QUADS. i REALLY STRUGGLED BACK SQUATTING 225 FOR 10 TODAY BUT I KNO IT WAS FROM THE FRONT SQUATS. v3 IS GIVING SOME INCREDIBLE LASTING PUMPS. MY LEGS STAYED PUMPED FOR A GOOD 4-5 HRS AFTER TRAINING, IT WAS UNREAL. i WAS FLEXING IN THE LOCKER ROOM AND MY WAIST LITERALLY LOOKED LIKE YOU GOOD PUT UR HANDS AROUND IT, I WAS IN SHOCK. AGRESSION IS THRU THE ROOF RIGHT NOW AS IS ENDURANCE. MOOD IS ALSO ELEVATED ALL THE TIME AND ALPHA MALE MENTALITY IS IN FULL SWING. iM LOVIN THIS SO FAR.

    TODAY WAS A GREAT ARM/SHOULDER WKOUT/ THE PUMPS CONTINUE TO GET MEANER AND VASCUALRITY IS COMING OUT WELL. THIS WKOUT HAD A TON OF VOLUME, MORE THAN I USUALLY DO. I USED TO TRAIN BI AND TRIS WITH ONLY 6-8 SETS AND MY ARMS DID NOT RESPOND SO IM SHOCKING IT WITH A ALOT OF VOLUME TO SEE HOW THEY GROW. THE WEIGHT MAY SEEM LOW ON SHOULDER PRESS BUT I LIKE TO DROP THE BAR WELL BELOW MY CHIN TO WORK THE FRONT DELT ENTIRELY. ALSO I PROBALLY COULD HAVE SWUNG ALOT MORE WEIGHT ON THE DB CURLS BUT IVE REALLY NOTICED BETTER RESULTS SINCE I STARTED USING STRICTER FORM AND REALLY FOCUSING ON THE MIND MUSCLE CONNECTION. INTENSITY IN THE GYM WAS THRU THE ROOF. I DIDNT WANT TO QUIT WHEN I DID BUT DECIDED TO BEFORE MY ARMS EXPLODED. TOMORROW IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE FREAKIN OFF DAYS. SO I WILL BE POSTING MY UPPER POWER WKOUT ON MONDAY.

    recline pullup- set smith machine bar about 4 feet off ground, place bench far enough away to put your feet on.Lay underneath bar and do pullups with body weight to your chest. I usually use them as a supersett with t-bars or bb rows. Go to failure.

    i HAD ALOT OF ENERGY AND AGGRESSIVNESS IN THE GYM TODAY. I CAN REALLY TELL THE V3 IS KICKING IN. STRENGTH SEEMS TO BE STARTING TO CLIMB. I SWITCHED OVER FROM SMITH INCLINE TO BB INCLINE, AND IT WAS A LITTLE ADJUSTMENT AFTER DOING THE SMITH FOR A FEW WEEKS, BUT BY THE 3 SET I WAS REALLY FEELING IT AND WANTED TO ADD SOME MORE WEIGHT BUT DIDNT HAVE A GOOD SPOT. RACK DEADS FELT GREAT. I REALLY SQUEEZED HARD AT THE TOP. I HAVE A GOOD WIDE BACK BUT AM REALLY TRYING TO BRING UP THE THICKNESS FOR MY NEXT SHOW. SHOULDER PRESS FELT WEAK TODAY, NOT SURE WHY. I DID DROP THE DB'S WELL BELOW MY CHIN TO REALLY GET THE MOST OUT OF THE FRONT DELT SO THAT PROLLY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. BI'S AND TRI'S ARE COMING UP NICELY AND ARE REALLY TAKING ON A FULLER HARDER LOOK. OVERALL IM VERY PLEASED SO FAR WITH V3 AND THE WORKOUTS SEEM TO BE GETTING BETTER EACH DAY. I WILL POST SUM PICS UP SOON, JUST WAITING TO GET MY CAMERA BACK FROM MY BRO.

    Looks like you are responding very well to MFX V3, Rah. Great job on the log.
    MFX plays a big roll in the Mind/Muscle connection, it provides an intense focus. That's one of the features I love most.

    GREAT LEG BLAST TODAY. I KNO THE POWER HYPERTROPHY CALLS FOR REPS BETWEEN 6-8 BUT IVE NOTICED I SEE BETTER RESULTS WITH REPS BETWEEN 8-20 FOR LEGS. IM A LITTLE BIT TALLER SO IT IS MORE OF A CHALLENGE TO FILL OUT MY LEGS. ENDURANCE AND ENERGY WERE THROUGH THE ROOF TODAY AS WELL AS FOCUS. I HAD THAT TUNNEL VISION EVEN BETWEEN SETS WHERE NOTHING COULD BREAK MY CONCENTRATION. GOING GREAT SO FAR. ILL POST UP CHEST AND BACK HYPERTROPHY THURS.

    GREAT PUMP AND FOCUS IN TODAYS WKOUT. I REALLY LIKE THE ASSISTANCE OF BANDS ON THE PULLUPS. iT REALLY LETS YOU SQUEEZE UR SCAPULAE TOGETHER AT THE TOP AS WELL AS GIVES A SICK PUMP IN =YOUR LATS. FOCUS AND AGGRESSION ARE IN FULL SWING AND IM DEF STARTING TO SEE A STEADY INCREASE IN STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE. AT THE END OF MY WORKOUT I LOOKED AT THE CLOCK AND IT HAD BEEN OVER AN HOUR AND I WASNT READY TO QUIT BUT DID ANYWAY. DEF WALKED OUT OF THE GYM FEELING LIKE I HAD A TURTLE SHELL ON MY BACK AND WITH ONE OF THE SICKEST CHEST PUMPS I CAN REMEMBER. WEIGHT WAS PRETTY LOW ON INC FLYES BUT THEY FELT LIKE FREAKIN HUNDREDS. MY CHEST DEF GOT TOASTED ON THAT WKOUT. LOVING V3 SO FAR!!!

    They are commonly referred to as 'inverted rows', I use them too and love them.

    Rah, have a look at the link if you want more of an explaination.

    Man I like the w/o; I also thought about a weekly strength/hypertrophy.

    Look forward to seeing what you can do

    HOLY $#@$ INSANE LEG WORKOUT. I WAS LITERALLY FRIED AND SEEING SPOTS ARE LEG PRESS. THOSE REST PAUSE SETS WILL REALLY BEAT UR ASS. AFTER LYING LEGS CURLS MY HAMSTRINGS HAD THE SICKEST PUMP. I LOVE SQUEEZING HARD AT THE TOP AND LOWERING THE WEIGHT SLOWLY. yOU GUYS SHOULD TRY IT, IT NUKES YOUR HAMSTRINGS LIKE NOTHING ELSE. AFTER THAT ALL OUT ASSAULT ON THE WHEELS, I DECIDED TO HIT SOME POSES IN THE LOCKER ROOM...BAD IDEA!!!!!STEPPED DOWN INTO MY SIDE CHEST, HAMSTRING CRAMPED AND BAM...I HIT THE FLOOR. BY FAR ONE OF THE SICKEST LEG WORKOUTS I CAN REMEMBER. I HOBBELED OUT OF THE GYM AND STUMBLED INTO MY CAR. I CANT BELIEVE THE ENDURANCE AND FOCUS I HAVE ON V3. ITS OUT OF THIS FREAKIN WORLD. THE SECOND I STEP FOOT IN THE GYM IM HYPED AND FREAKIN READY TO KILL SUMTHING..I LOVE IT.

    ARMS=TOAST. I GOT THIS IDEA FROM ERIC BROSER. ITS FREAKIN TORTURE AND YOU GET THE SICKEST PUMP. I LITERALLY HAD TROUBLE GETTING MY SHIRT OVER MY HEAD AFTER DOING THIS WORKOUT. I ALSO SWITCHED THINGS UP ON SIDE LATERALS. MY SHOULDERS ALREADY HAD A MEAN PUMP FROM THE UPROW DROPSET SO I THOUGHT I WOULD THROW IN SOME DIFFERENT ANGLES FOR VARIATION. AGAIN FOCUS AND INTENSITY ARE AMAZING. BEFORE I KNEW IT I HAD BEEN IN THE GYM FOR AN HOUR AND I JUST DIDNT WANT TO QUIT. I DECIDED I SHOULD WHEN MY ARMS FELT LIKE THEY WERE GOING TO EXPLODE THROUGH THEIR SKIN. V3 IS NO FREAKIN JOKE AND SO FAR IM LOVIN IT. JUST WISH I HAD LONGER THAN A 4 WEEK CYCLE LOL. MAYBE AX WOULD LIKE TO HOOK ME UP WITH SUM MORE CUZ IM FREAKIN ADDICTED!!!!!!

    TODAY WAS A SICK LOWER POWER DAY. I FELT SUPER STRONG ON SQUATS AND KNOCKED OUT 275 TO THE GROUND FOR 5 REPS. V3 IS HITTING ME HARD THIS WEEK AND STRENGTH IS WAY UP. I RESPONDED THE SAME WAY TO THE OLD VERSION. DIDNT SEE MUCH THE FIRST COUPLE THEN ALL THE SUDDEN UR BODY JUST REACTS TO IT ITS AWESUM. LOWER BACK WAS SUPER SORE FROM RACK PULLS YESTERDAY SO I DECIDED TO TAKE IT EASY AND JUST MOVE SUM WEIGHT WIT LEG CURLS. I REALLY TURNED IT ON DURIN HACK SQUATS AND PUT 4 PLATES ON EACH SIDE FOR 10 ROCK BOTTOM REPS WHICH IS DEF A PR. I KNO MOST PPL THING THAT ADDUCTOR MACHINE IS FOR WOMEN BUT IM TELLIN YOU IT REALLY MAKES UR ASS SORE. I LIKE IT AND AM GOING TO KEEP DOING THEM AND SEE IF I CAN BRING STRIATED GLUTES TO MY NEXT SHOW. RIGHT NOW MY STAIRS ARE KICKIN MY ASS MORE THAN HEAVY SQUATS DID SO TOM WILL BE A WELL DESERVED RECOVERY DAY.
