  1. Deadlifts - 265x5
    265x5
    275x5
    285x5
    295x5
    335x1 (just to try).....very solid guesssing my 1rm is around 365-375?

    explosive pendlay rows touching at the bottom

    105x10
    105x10
    115x10
    120x9+3 (rested a little between reps)

    dont know why but i tried to do bw pull ups and was shooting for 4 sets of 6-8 and only got 5 and 3 good reps without cheating so i jsut did weight pull ups on the machine...i really hate sucking at pull ups im gonna focus on them from nwo on i think, i dont liek doign them though cuz i suck at them lol, never been good at them, anyone got any tips for gettin good at pull ups?

    anyways....10 x 10
    10x10
    10x9 ds 13x11 great squeezes all teh way up and slow controlled negatives

    tbar row!!!! I decided i jstu wante dto load the effing bar and move some weight not worrying abotu form...to start

    5 plates x 10
    5 platesx10
    5plates +10 x 8
    4 plates x 20 rest +5 Drop 3 plates x 15 2 plates controlled x 10

    landmines 4 x 30 - ab exercise, figures i was at the tbar station so it was a good opportunity to do these!

    bent over row.....

    205 x 10
    205x10
    205x10 these sets were pretty sloppy not gonna lie , wanted to go heavy but i think iwas pretty shot form the t bars
    145 x 15 solid set!

    my school gym has a cool rowing station on liek the cable station which has the footplatforms higher and the cable higher so u row pulling down towards you a bit so i took advantage of that but did it with an ez bar underhand grip.......

    all isolation work i really focused on exploding the concentric, squeezing and then having a slow controlled eccentric...really feel the muscles working this way, really liking it!

    75x15
    90x15
    105x15

    lat pullover

    90x15
    105x12+3 extra reps were done witha normalgrip other reps are with hands all teh way at the top of the handles for a bigger stretch
    105x12+3
    120x10+5 drop 90x15

    hammer strength pull down

    210x8 these were jerky reps
    210x8
    120x12 + 3 unilateral
    120x 12 +3 unilateral drop 90 x 15.......good squeezes

    some calf work on a hack squat machine and seated calf raises, dont remember wights but i did 4 sets on each, first two sets were heavy 8-12 reps and the next 2 sets were high reps around 20......i get a horrible pain in my foot when i do calf raises though which makes it realyl hard to do them its not liek planter fasciatis or anyrthing either its a bone issue, i think i brok emy foot a long time ago but never got it fixed and now the bone kinda like pokes out, i dunno, i do what i can, im nto gonna go have my foot broken to fix it.

    so far still loving htis, pumps energy focus all has been great, some days i dotn even finish it, i suualyl drink some coffee/tea befoe hand too though, and sip this throughout but just one scoop has still been giving me great energy throughout even a long workout like today!


  2. im gettin kinda lonely in here guys.....well today was an "off" day that turned into quite a workout...was jsut gonna do some plyos but ended up doing alot of plyos and sprints....just felt too good to stop today!.........btw my ab routine is gettin kinda old......what everyones favorite ab routine? somehtin reaaaal good! :-)

  3. I dont know if I have a favorite Ab workout. I hate training abs! Hanging leg raises are probable my favorite


  4. yea....i like rev. crunches too but just tryin to change it up ... i tend to swing too much with leg raises

    What are reverse crunches? Just curious! Sounds like back hyperextensions to me.

    Mike
    I think maybe rope crunches


  7. uve never done reerse crunches......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfdmYbDczag only i do mine on a decline bench with my head at the top...maes it alot harder....trick is to only go down farn enough till ur back starts to come off the bench....u wanna try to keep ur lower back on the bench the whole tiem until the top of the motion wher u really squeee ur lower abs....u can also do it on a ball which is tuff

  8. sooo i gotta be hoenst, i really didnt think i was going to train today, i had every intention too when i got up but after sitting through a new employee orientation(u know how much fun those are) i was absolutely dead , jsut wanted to sleep...fortunately we got out a littel early so i was able to run a few errands and that kinda woke me up...not totally though, i jsut pushed through i gues (whether i shoudl have or not....


    anyways.... it was a leg day...and turned out to be a damn good one and i attribute alot of it to MAXIMIE INTENSE!!!!

    mixed up about a scoop and a quarter and hit it hard..... went heavy to start on sets and pumped it out more towards the last few sets...think m gonna keep tryin this ou for a few weeks, i like the idea of relaly breakin down the muscle and then using hte higher reps towards the ned to relaly get the blood to the damaged areas......

    Squats- really focuseing on slow negatives and ATG

    225x8
    225x8
    225x8

    front squat

    145x12
    155x10
    135x12
    135x12

    squat again (higher reps, no belt)
    135x17, slight rest +3
    145x15
    155x15 (belt)

    leg press machine

    stack (380) x 12
    stack x 13
    320 x 20
    320x20 drop 260x15 220x 25!!! burned liek hell....and got such a head rush, kinda effected the rest of my workout, almost liek a dull headahce

    DB RDL

    90x8
    90x8
    90x7
    75x15

    seated leg curl

    130x15 pr
    145x10
    145x10 drop 110 x 6 drop 95x15 really felt these in my hams today, not sure why, partly because of the heavy rdls before maybe but it felt liek my hams wnated to tear , good stuff

    lying leg curl 2 sets toes in, 2 sets toes out

    55x12 x 4

    started talkin to a buddy about a new way to hit my ass, he said sumo deads so i tried them .....

    155x12
    185x12
    185x12....if u really focus on squeeing the glutes this def does the trick!....and i jsut realied i forgot to do leg ext....o well, im gonna have trouble walking for a few days as it is


    pumps were relaly good, focus was good, and im really suprised i got such a good workout troday with teh way the day started....anyoen notice that sumtimes ur best workout s are when ur not feelign ur best,, i have a bit of a head cold too

  9. another good way to hit glutes would be glute-ham raises, probalby my favorite for working the glutes and the top part of the hamstrings. Sumo deads are a great option too though.

    Glad to see that Intense helped you push through that, I notice it really wakes me up since I train early in the morning, and I can say that I've had some pretty good workouts while feeling kind of crappy too haha.

    And for abs, I usually stick to reverse crunches on the decline board. I feel like that's been the best ab exercise for me personally. Rope crunches and hanging leg raises are up there too
