A friend told me "don't let it discourage you, jesus christ look at you man you know what your doing!" made me feel pretty good. I looked a lot bigger today just didn't feel like i was in the zone like usual. Oh well guess i'll see how i do tomorrow and the next day! The biggest gratification i had today was hitting a front double bi and actually being happy with it. My bi's/tri's look like they peak more due to me leaning out so far. Gotta keep pushing it! My plan right now is 5-10 reps with my slow good form i want to see what it will do for me. Legs are going to be high reps still!
    Next time try this for incline barbell...

    -Take a relatively wide grip, your going to have to find that sweet spot, that allows specific tension on the pec minor(upper pecs), go down until you feel a stretch, and immediately go back up.

    -Your joints get compromised when the range of motion for an exercise is at its full stretch and its full contraction, keep that in mind, its OK to stop 1-2 inches before the bar hits your chest, and its OK to not come to a full lockout.

    -On the negative portion of the rep, drive your hands in together, but obviously don't let them move, grip the bar as tight as possible, you can try this while pushing against a wall right now, grip your object tight, what just contracted? Your chest. On the positive explode up while still driving your hands in together. Your going to have to go alot lighter, but thats a good thing long term!

    -Anytime you can't feel a muscle working, its because obviously their isn't a specific tension on the targeted muscle, as bodybuilders you need that specific focus. Training heavy is awesome, but if majority of the tension is dominated by your assistance muscles expect big assistance muscles!

    Ill sub to this, hopefully im not too late!

  2. Nice piece of info there bro!

    Yeah Tiny I feel ya on the incline barbell. I usually stick to the DBs on this lift I just feel that for me personally there is better ROM and the stretch is much more focused.

    Thanks for that man! Squeezing the bar together is my only choice for Incline Barbell bench, I just enjoy how much farther into failure i can go with DB's
    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

  6. Did back and bi's with 5 reps range but squeezing the muscle. All lifts went up significantly as a result. I did low reps for tri's a few days back and now they are SORE AS F***! Posting workout tomorrow!

  7. Started tanning today haha, trying to get some decent color considering i'm white as a ghost. Waist is down another half an inch! Sitting at 235Lbs currently, so far so good! Did cardio this morning high intensity and some low intensity later on in the day. Started doing Reverse seated v bar pull-downs ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hW3zy...6&feature=plcp ) Go to 4:18, it mimics a t bar row but i don't have to balance anything and can focus on the squeeze!

    5/12/12
    Back Bi's
    Chin Ups -50 x 6 + 2 R/P + Drop (Did body weight ones before for like 3 reps, just going to wait till i drop a little more fat) *Improved*
    Rvs V-Bar Pull-Down 110 x 6, 140 x 8 + R/P + Drop *HUGE improvement of 50lbs*
    Underhand Close Grip Pull-Down 150 x 6 + 2 R/P + Drop *HUGE improvement of 40lbs*
    21's 30Lbs x 3 sets *10Lb Improvement*
    Incline DB Curl 15Lbs x 8 focused as hard as i could on trying to put tension on the "peak" of my bi's i literally felt it directly in the middle!
    Preacher Curls 2 Positions x 8 Reps 15Lbs

    After doing all the heavy back stuff reverse grip, i hit my Bi's pretty hard. 21's wrecked them i even can see some veins slowly starting to come in. Going to get half-way pic's up this week.

    Notes:
    Stoked has definitely dried me out a little bit, joints are a little more stiff but i make sure i warm up a lot more thoroughly to be safe.
    Libido is up a lot too.
    Strength up a good amount,.
    Leaner.

  8. Another epic successful day!! Lifts went up again pumps were GREAT! Also at the end of the workout i messed around with deadlifts from the floor just to see how it felt, Did 315 x 1 cold (not smart lol) felt like a FEATHER. My technique is getting very good, i drive with my heels and literally explode off the floor. Use my lats instead of my middle back to hold my shoulders in place and prevent too much back rounding. I am SO pumped for leg day i'm going for 355 x 5 if i feel good for stiff leg deads. NOTHING IS GONNA STOP ME! KEEPING MY FORM PICTURE PERFECT WITH 4 SECOND NEGATIVE TO STAY IN PERFECT CONTROL.

    Yeah man it'd be awesome to train with him i like his attitude, TIIIGER FITNESS DOT COM!! haha

    So far tons and tons of eggs, seriously i can't get enough of them! Whole wheat sandwiches with potato salad or rice post workout sometimes PB&J for glycogen replenishment. So far that's the base of it since it's cheap yet effective, Some days i pick up some chicken breast and make that as well. Tried eating whole grain oats and can't do it anymore they just give me the ****s and i fart all day. It sucks!

  13. Epic leg day: 355 x 5,3 Stiff Leg Deads with pause on bars at bottom, Started box squats which are right at parallel for me and probably my favorite! 135 x 5, 185 x 5, 205 x 5, 225 x 5, 245 x 5, 255 x 5, 275 x 2. Was really happy with how i did considering it being my first time doing them and was after kicking my ass on Stiff Leg Deads. Not to mention getting PR's all day while DIETING. As the weights got heavier i actually improved my form with getting the bar lower. My bar position before was way too high on my neck and after warming up my shoulders and some light stretching i can get the bar directly on my traps. The even cooler thing is after i finished box squats i tried just the bar with the same form and i literally had this feeling when going down that a rubber band was pulling me up. I can see how the CNS would adapt i can't wait to see how strong i can get Form is ALWAYS first for me, if i feel it breaking down i set the bar down!

  14. Oh and i also only did those 2 exercises today, just adapting to the heavy weight and sets is going to be enough for this week which was about 11 sets not including warm-up. My calves are STILL slightly sore from the last time i trained them x.x so i decided to just do cardio and get home. Will be going back later for more cardio

  19. First time ever heavy flat benching today got 205 x 3 for 2 sets!! So happy with it, i set that as my goal this month. I favor a close grip though everything wide bothers my shoulders so close grip i felt way way better. Did close grip after and got 155 x 5 for 2 sets after normal grip which felt a lot stronger and stable. I might be switching to 5x5 for cutting since the volume is much lower. I could just build some strength now so when i'm done dieting i can take full advantage of being stronger and gain easy. I think after this week i will do that!

    I corrected you in the bold above, oh and PNS = Peripheral Nervous System = Responsible for your body motor pattern. Just thought i'd throw that out there for ya!

    Looking good in here! How is your "alpha male" feeling right now?

    Thank you! I'm really not sure how it all works, i'm guessing after every session i will get better and better after learning the "new motor pattern"

    I'm feeling pretty good, i really think i need MORE food so i'm gonna up the cals a little bit more until i hit a sweet spot. Still losing fat just at a slower rate but my energy is sapped. I want to sleep all day! So guess i'll just play it by ear the next few days.

  22. Started Bill Starr's Intermediate 5x5 program today!

    Box squat pause at bottom: Worked up to 275 x 5 and 285 x 2 no belt or wraps
    Flat BB bench worked up to 195 x 4 x 2 second set did reps a lot quicker
    BB underhand rows (substituting pull ups for these) 225 x 5 felt "weird" though wish we had a chest supported row!
    close grip Pull-Ups close grip 5 sets of 5 reps explosive, going for 6-8 x 5 sets next workout
    Hyper extensions 45Lb plate x 10 x 3 sets
    Core work: Leg raises straight out 10 reps x 3 sets

    This is some good sh*t!! Seems so simple yet is very challenging and wipes me out

    Weight is down to 232-233Lbs!

  23. That is great your trying new training systems

    do you that program your doing it hitting too many body-parts in one day?

    I used to do the dc two way split, that is probably the most bodybuilding Ive hit in a days time

    It's pretty much a full body power style setup, squat/bench/deadlift/pull-ups/military press. Focused primarily on strength i would say. It's literally the most pure basic setup but simplicity works! This is almost a beginner routine but i never have done it so i can see lots of benefits on my part for spending 2-3 months doing it improving my form/strength which will pave the way for more muscle growth afterwards!

    I do this every ten days as I'm forced to take two days off prior and two days off after due to work. 3 - 4 sets 3 - 6 reps slow steady form. Takes about an hour and I'm FOCKED. Good and proper. Has helped my main lifts shoot up in weight.
