  1. Road to my first Physique Show Titanium Log (Sponsored)


    First, thanks to Athletix and JD for giving me this opportunity to log the new Titanium. I am a big fan of fenugreek so I am excited to try this. After a long lay off from these forums, (had a few things to work out in my life.... new job, new car etc) I am back now and on the way to my first Mens Physique show on July 6th, in Albuquerque, NM. I plan on doing a Bodybuilding show as well, but want to put on more size before I throw myself up there.

    My workouts consist of lifting 4x-5X/week, I am well known for training by how I feel, but I do not suffer from ****arounditis. I put all I have into my workouts and I will keep you guys closely tied in on what I am doing. I am doing a much better job with my diet these days. I am currently eating at about maintenance levels for me (2900 Cals/day) Current stats are 6' 187.6 at around 9%bf (estimate, will upload pics in next post) I eat a LOT of oats, (ask my girl about the farts haha) and whole grain types for my carbs.
    Protein is almost all chicken eggs and tilapia, of which thanks to lemon pepper, I have become fond of. My current supps now and throughout will be Met RX whey, Creatine Mono vitamin C and E, and Hyde as my preworkout.

    LET'S DO THIS!


    Pics!







    These next two are after a back day pump. Had to include them! Relaxed front coming later today

  4. Day 1

    Chest Traps and Abs

    I typically don't do traps with chest, but I have recently put more focus on them, doing them 3x a week, so this will be standard. Took 1 pill this morning, second pill right before my workout. Third pill later tonight. Will say, and I know it's too early and is probably literally impossible, but I had a surge of....libido....after that second pill. Again, just saying, had to note it haha. Had a great workout, and focused primarily on slow controlled movement today.

    All chest movements Done with 3 second descent, 1 second pause at bottom, and 3 seconds up (3,1,3)

    Incline DB
    40lbx15 (Warmup)
    55lbx15
    65lbx15
    65lbx12

    Flat BB (rarely do barbell, usually stick with DB)

    135lbx15
    155lbx15
    185lbx12
    185x7 (died on this set haha)

    Dips (again, done with 3,1,3)

    15
    12
    12 SS with 10, 10, 10 Pec minor dips

    Low cable crossovers (my favorite cable exercise BTW)

    35lbsx15
    40lbsx12
    40lbsx15 SS with 10 slow Incline pushups

    TRAPS
    (1 second raise, 3 second squeeze, 2 second descent)

    Barbell shrugs
    225x10 Behind Back SS 225x10 in front
    275lbsx10 Back SS 275x10 Front
    315lbsx10 Back SS 315x10 Front

    DB shrugs
    Same method (1,3,2)
    110lbsx15
    110lbsx12
    110lbsx12
    110lbsx10

    That was it for the day, felt focused and pumped as hell throughout. Really can't ait til this stuff kicks in!

    (If it didn't already haha)

  5. Great update!

    Thats a good idea hitting it 3 times a week to shock the muscle, I need to try something like that with traps and forearms.

    Squeezing the traps is absolutely essential. I see too many dudes in the gym just bouncing the weight around thinking its beneficial. Burn those traps down!

I changed from a high volume bodybuilding mentality shoulder workout to 5/3/1 and literally the only thing that works my shoulders now is the shoulder press and barbell shrug. I miss all the raises and face pulls

  10. Day 2 and Day 3 (off Day 3)

    Back and Shoulders

    Typically don't do these together, usually give shoulders their own day, but I have recently ramped up volume on these as well. Took 1st pill early morning, 2nd pre workout, and third with my dinner/last meal. One thing I will note, I tend to have vivid dreams quite often, but I had some exceptionally weird stuff going on this time, won't even go into detail on it haha. In terms of the Titanium, I swear to you, placebo or not, my libido is up already. I am dying to get further into this stuff! Lets get to the juicy stuff!

    Back

    Wide Grip Lat pull downs (Hands at end of bar, pulling from pinkeys)

    110x20
    120x20
    150x15
    180x12
    210x10
    240x6 Pulled to only top of head, with 3 second squeeze and 3 second descent)

    As you can see, I go high volume on back. Always worked well for me. (My physique strong point, IMO)

    Meadows Rows (I love this guy)

    70x12
    70x15
    105x10
    130x8

    If you haven't tried these....you need to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY4YjAHcWrw
    One arm BB Rows (feel these in my lower lat better than anything I have tried....ever)

    35x20
    70x15
    95x10

    These are done on a T Bar, standing in front. Again, letting these stretch at the bottom has really helped my high lat insertion seem less noticeable. Also, I use 25's and 35's for a better ROM

    Barbell Rows on slanted Smith machine

    I will get a pic of this to give you guys a better visual in the next update.
    135x20
    185x12
    235x8 Drop setted 185x10 DS 135x17

    Kroc Rows
    Has helped my deadlift a lot as well as trap development...these freakin work, and it's something I want to get a video of

    135x15

    Thats right, one set These are a bitch

    SHOULDERS

    Military Barbell Press
    Hurt shoulder in past so I stay light on shoulders for most part now. Do a lot of high weight high rep, except for overhead press movements

    95x15
    135x8
    135x15 (Partials, to top of head)
    95x20

    Also, shoulders fatigue quick, but my best gains come from these types of volume, so I keep moving forward!

    6 Ways

    10lbsx8
    10lbsx8
    10lbsx8

    These are amazing https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...;v=E-cCXkSi7IQ

    Hang and Swing Destroyer Set

    This is one thing that got me hooked on John Meadows. These right here, helped my shoulders grow more than anything. After I started doing these, within two months, I swear to you everybody was complimenting how big my shoulders were. Try these if you have the balls!!! These aI am definitely going to get a video of so you guys can see how funny I look at the end. These are beyond brutal



    50lbsx60 (these were barely moving at the end haha)
    25lbsx30 (Im dead at this point)
    10lbsx10 (Took about an hour to finish these haha)
    BWx8 I do these cause I like pain

    At the end of these, you will believe there is no God.

    That was my day, and I did this on my lunch break. I work Loss Prevention at Walmart as I have a lenient Boss who lets me do this, so it helps alot. Needless to say, my back and shoulders are pretty sore. And for those wondering why I didn't do Deads, I have been splitting them with legs and back. Leg day is tomorrow, so you will see Deads. Also, you guys have any questions about my job, ask. I get into some funny **** sometimes haha.

  20. Day 4 (Days 5 and 6 off)

    LEGS!

    First, sorry for the delay guys. Got screwed by my work sending me out of town to catch people shoplifting, and was stuck in a hell hole, so missed 2 days of gym. No worries though, as this is very rare. Just wanna update you guys on why I was MIA.

    Second, I have always had problems getting my legs to grow, so I bust my ass harder each time I train legs. I am a fan of volume on legs, and tend to do whatever I can to beat them down. Today was no different (6-6-2013) I, again am maintaing a caloric diet of 2900 kcals a day, give or take +/-100. I will say the Titanium definitely kicked in Libido wise. Honestly have an insane amount on erections during the day haha. Also, I sweat like crazy this workout. Not sure if due to the workout itself, gym being hotter....or Titanium. Will make that assessment tomorrow (Sunday) Strength seems to be about the same for now

    To the Workout!

    Squats (High bar)

    Also, these are ATG...honestly as low as I can go, because ever since I got more mobility in my ankles and hips, I have seen more growth

    135x20
    135x10 (3,1,3)
    185x10 (3,1,3)
    185x15 (normal)
    225x6 (Normal...legs were too fatigued, I can usually get this around 10-12)

    Hack Squats

    PES-Plate Each Side

    2 PESx20
    3 PESx15 (3,1,3) Big fan of 3 second descents on hacks...John Meadows is my boy)
    4 PESx8 (3,1,3)
    3 PESx15 Drop set to 2 PESx15 Drop set ! PESx20.....brutal
    3 PESx8 (Did a set of dead stops here...again I'm a Meadows Disciple haha)

    RDL's
    All done with 3 seconds down, 1 second pause, 3 seconds up

    135x20
    135x12
    185x12
    225x10
    275x8
    315x5 (Wanted 6 but I was about to buckle)

    Seated Machine Leg Curls

    105x20
    175x15
    190x12
    205x12
    220x8 SS with 220x25 partials at top....these have helped my hammys as much as anything I ahve ever tried

    One Legged Leg Press

    1 PESx12
    1 PESx10
    1 PESx9 SS with 20 partials at top of movement for each leg

    Standing Calf Raises
    I do a program at home....50 calf raises BW only 2 seconds up, 1 second squeeze, 2 second descent...just started so hoping for more progress soon. Here are the weighted ones I do at gym

    175x20
    190x14
    205x12
    220x11
    235x7
    205x9
    190x7

    This was my leg day. Obviously my legs are a weakness, but I look more and more forward to trainiong them, because I know that the day I break through I can look back at this and see what I went through to achieve it. Also, one more note on the Titanium. My dreams have only gotten more intense, and I love it . Not sure how others feel about this, or if the other loggers have had this, but I hope it continues haha.

    Day 7 Tomorrow fellas! I am off so I will definitely not miss the update or the gym

  22. Day 7 Chest and Tris

    Alright guys, so somehow I messed up my neck...maybe while sleeping, maybe on trap day (felt a small tweak), either way it has really been hindering me in terms of movement. Bad enough at one point it made my eyes water. I was set to go heavy today but I stayed careful and had an amazing workout. I will also throw in that Titanium is in full swing mode in terms of libido haha I also did sweat a lot more than usual again, which i personally like, and I will attribute that to Titanium as well. I am loving it to be honest. All bias and crap aside, I really would recommend this to anyone with libido problems. I ate well today again, with the side caveat that I had a chicken alfredo from a local deli that was amazing . Also, I am a huge LeBron fan so while the NBA Finals are on......GO LEBRON! HAHA

    On to the workout!

    Incline Smith
    (because 1. neck was absolutely killing me while holding free weight BB and 2. Love the constant tension on Upper chest, something I am trying to build)

    145x20 (using 25's for eventual dropset)
    145x10 (3,1,3)
    195x10 (3,1,3)
    245x6 (3,1,3)
    245x5 Drop set 195x9 DS 145x14 DS 95x17 All normal pace til almost failure

    Incline DB Flyaways
    These are something new I tossed in, love the stretch from the fly, look these up, they are awesome

    35lbsx15
    40lbsx12
    45lbsx15
    45lbsx15

    Seated Nautilus Chest Press (Facing Forward not facing sky)
    Love these for the pure contraction I am able to achieve. Use this to get a better feel for my chest. All PES in this update will refer to 25lbers, for drop sets (DS)

    2 PESx20 (3,1,3)
    3 PESx15 (3,1,3)
    4 PESx12 (3,1,3)

    19 SS 12 Pec Minors
    13 SS 9 Pec Minors

    Low Cable Crossovers

    40lbsx12
    40lbsx15 SS with 10 slow Incline pushups

    Triceps

    Something I consider my strongpoint (One I don't like)

    Close grip bench (Smith)

    135x15
    135x12
    135x12
    95x15

    And yes, this was all for tri's, as I ran out of time. It's ok though. I will upload a pic soon, my tris dont need too much work, well less than everything else in my opinion. Another thing, and I will keep harping on this. My dreams are still staying the course in terms of being weird and vivid. And I love it. Tomorrow is Day 6, and it's planned to be Back day...my favorite Hoping more people will jump in on this, as I will be posting a vid soon, and maybe some pics

  23. Great update. Pics and bids (especially!) are most welcome! I was a huge proprietor of video reviews for supplements awhile back and then I ran out of things to review lol. I love doing them and would love to see more of the same! So it took about a week for your libido to get boosted? I like that! Take it easy on that neck!

    Yeah I am going to try and get some vids of my lifts as well. I would see that as tying myself closer to this log. And yeah, definitely kicked in now. To be honest, felt something that 1st day! Just wasn't sure if it was possible or placebo haha. And thanks JD. I am taking care of the neck. Not sure exactly what is wrong with it....still hurts and I have been icing it.

  26. Absolutely fantastic log! You got me interested with the hang and swing destroyer set so I built that into the shoulder workiut this morning. I had an issue with my left shoulder feeling like it was popping in and out as I worked the reps. I changed the angle of the bench but had no luck. I'll have to revisit these later because the set looks awesome. You've got a great base for a physique show. Shouldn't take you long at all to step on stage. Keep it going!

    Yeah man those are awesome. Pure pain though haha. For those I stay butt seated on bench and I angle it a little higher. I also try to swing DBs more backward to avoid that. And thank you sir I will let you know how it goes! Update coming today as I am at work at the moment.

  28. Day 8

    Hey guys, Back/shoulder day went awesome! Hell of a pump, good strength throughout and didn't fatigue. Day started off with a pretty good ol' morning wood...one of those ones that make you look twice haha.
