  1. So based on the fact i pretty much can do body-weight pull-ups now, My back/bi workout will be more centered on Pull-Up movements. I will be doing Overhand/Wide/Hammer/Chins first without assistance (if i can, it may take a few more workouts) Then move on to assisted. It will definitely kick up the sets/intensity. Also going to cut out some movements, probably more than likely gonna be some curl movements. If my bi's don't grow from 30+ sets of pull-ups then i will literally be shocked haha
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    They will grow man!!
    Maybe a couple pump sets after back and that'll be all you need. My biceps are pretty big I'm told and I don't do more than 4sets a week for biceps lol.

    That's actually the plan haha ironic, I just plan to do 4-5 sets of ez bar preacher curls or something like that.

    It seems like the small muscles barely need anything to grow (besides calves LOL)

    My bi's i feel are lagging too... Hmm maybe i need to cut out bi's almost all the way. I think for some bodyparts less may be more.

    EX. Zack Khan, I've followed this dude for a while and i NEVER/RARELY see him training tri's/bi's. He seems to always focus on compound more than anything. And his arms are eh... not so small LOL



    Also some more irony is i train my arms with LOTS of volume/intensity but they barely respond.. I HAVE TO TRY THIS APPROACH NOW I JUST SOLD MYSELF! You can even tell from my pic's, Back usually responds to volume which it has been, same with legs.. It all makes sense now!

  4. I think though some ppl respond better to different training methods. Even for different bodyparts. Especially when growth is the goal. For strength in one rep ranges obviously 10-12 reps are not a good idea. But for growth it's all your own body. I'll be posting more on this when I start my lean bulk.

    That's definitely true, I meant more along the lines of sets. I tend to forget that volume means more reps to a lot of people. I'll just keep messing with it and see what happens.

    Another note of today is i'm having this feeling of my skin being tight and almost a pump like feel throughout my body. Like my hands for example, when i make a fist it almost feels like my hands all pumped up. I have that feeling everywhere. Skin is a little red on arms, I must be growing or something because my sodium intake today was low so i should not be holding a lot of water. Either way it feels awesome, Forearm is pumped up a **** ton too.

    Last time i experienced this was when i was winter bulking last year, i gained about 60-70Lbs over that time period but i got this "tight" feeling pretty much all the time. I really think it's an indication of muscle growth considering i'm dropping fat slowly.

    Guess well find out tomorrow when i train!

  8. Workout went exactly how i expected, i got 13 BW Chin-Ups i'm so happy haha but either way i got to a bicep exercise and after 1 set i felt done. So in an essence i'm pretty much not gonna train bi's directly anymore and see what happens from pull-ups. Workout was shorter today but i made it count. Pretty much cut almost 30 min out. Weight this morning was 231.2Lbs BUT it probably is more like 230 since i didn't answer nature yet. Either way I'm starting to notice a difference everywhere. I need to get my tri's growing more though! I think i'm just gonna see what happens if i cut out arm training. I more than likely need more recovery for my arms, I've gotten really high up there with sets with little to show but an impressive workout. I'm starting to utilize some smarts now, it should yield the progress i'm craving!

    Workout will be up later!

    Considering i had no idea what i was doing right here it makes me feel even better i accomplished it. This was from pretty much a home workout i put together with pushups/pullups that i had done for a couple months. I also did that Insanity cardio program which is what initially got me really lean.

  19. damn bro!! youve put on some weight.. when were those pics from?

    and you're talking about cutting bi work by doing pull ups, is this the compound exercises you were talking about? i wasnt even sure what the hell you meant by compound when you mentioned it earlier ..but this makes sense.

    you'll never catch me dead layin off bi's, probably some of my favorite lifts.
    any advice for compounds that would build the forearms?

    Forearms are seriously worked anytime you are doing back, biceps, basically any upper body exercise that requires you to hold on to heavy weight! My forearms grew the best with I did forward and reverse bar rolls with the rope and weight at the end, nothing has built my forearms like that!!!

    I've been getting that a lot lately, Makes me feel really good that i look heavier than i actually weigh , I did think about seriously cutting but i'm just gonna keep my fat under control and march forward 1Lb at a time.

    Those pic's were from around July 11', August i went on a roadtrip then when i got back i started going to the gym instead of doing home workouts. THAT'S when i blew up!

    What i meant by that was i'm gonna do bodyweight chin ups with bi's prioritized so when i do them i focus on using my arms more. I'm pretty sure a 230Lb "Bicep" curl will be better for me than the normal DB work i did. Plus i have had trouble growing my arms more so i may need to not work them directly as much. I do a lot of heavy rowing too. As i'm typing this my arms still feel sapped from my workout even though i cut out 2 entire bi exercises.

    Thanks man! I REALLY messed up my diet though, not by bad foods. But i seriously was trying to eat like 1000-1500 calories while doing this insane cardio program. If i would have eaten around 3k i would have been as lean or leaner and bigger. I learned really quick though and that's a good thing.

    Thanks!

    Oh and you guys would FREAK if you saw older pic's than that, their from about 2 years prior around 2008 i seriously looked so skinny that i myself can't believe it! I had a SMALL sized shirt and my arms weren't even close to filling out the sleeves, This was when i skated a LOT but i probably didn't eat enough so i wasn't intentionally that skinny. It is going to make an absolutely insane transformation/motivation for people once i finally am content with my physique and time to get on stage and begin my dream.
