  1. Hookie, so you would do each day as noted, and then add a couple of exercises for back, shoulders, legs, tri, bi on each individual day?

  2. YES!

    What you do is filling the muscle with blood to keep it pumped for initial phase! I also took a little time between body parts! After I did the chest workout I drank water and chatted a bit. Then got to work, on other body parts!
    Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

    Ended workout due to time being up and having to get son from child watch. Did it with a vengeance. Yes, you read this right. I performed all the back and delt work prior to hitting bench. Feels really good and I'm loving Titanium.

  8. For some reason me and T-Bar row do not get along. Not sure if I don't have it set up right or what... maybe I'm too tall... but it really hurts to do it and I can barely lift any weight. Then again I'm doing it on a machine set up for it... perhaps I should stick a barbell in a corner and try it that way.

    I do it either way. I started by going back to two plates for 5x10. Stated with it for a month and added a plate. Same thing but don't increase until you rep at least for a month. When you warm up as you add a plate, use 2 plates then three up to work set. Each time you go up warm up with 8 reps minimum starting with two plates. Then your foundation is built. I did it using a machine first by planting my feet under my body then placing chest against the pad.

    Smashing it in the gym. I'm loving the Titanium. I'm feeling Euphoric. I don't want to stop once I get started. I need to take and post a few pics. I'm not photogenic so be nice. I'm looking to get wider and leaner over time. Can't rush perfection. Don't worth I look the way I described I just want more. You shall see. Getting noticed by people I never expected, especially when they find out I'm older than they believed. My chain was the topic of convo when I walked in until I left the gym. I need a second one. Just not ready to lug two in at the same time. Then ill look like Thor walking into the gym to workout!

    As you can see I love my chest and work it a lot! I love the size of it and overtrain it but refuse to lose it. I'm getting everything else in line and recently added HIIT at the end of workouts. If I workout 3 times a week I will add 15 minutes in the end, if only two days, them twice. Just remember I work 12 hour shifts with an hour drive time each way.

    I'm going to kill it regardless. Of course, I've adopted the earth as my training ground. Calisthenics will become key. Looking to get some blast straps from Elitefts. Very similar to TRX but their built differently and can handle loads up to 600lbs.

    Titanium is a serious supplement. It allows me to go hard each and every time. No soreness whatsoever. It's serious, and I'm getting great results. I recently separated each dosage after hearing JDs advice. Previously, I was taking 3 at a time, once a day. Now I take one pill 3x a day.

    If you all are hanging around! Sty with me. I'm just getting warmed up for round 2.

    See that is me with dumbbell rows, I have a very naturally narrow frame so it is hard for me to get good form with it.

    Thank yo JD. I told you before, when you give me these kind of opportunities I do all I can to make it worth your while. This is such a blessing to have an opportunity not only to win a chance to log your product, but to get a month #2, I'm putting in work. Understand, some days I'm even sacrificing sleep to do it. Not because I have to but for the love of the iron game.

    Sometimes standing in the gym I improvise and it just ended up being a delt/squat day like no other. Stay tuned there's more.

    Find a weight you can handle. Stand in front f a mirror and watch as your delts and lats flare to raise that weight, You will do it a lot more.

    Note@
    I apologize, I couldn't finish my notes section. Been a great week. I was off for the last 7 days and now this is my first day of my {Hitch}. That's waht the drillers call the work weeks since it's every other we are out here on site. My son {18 months old TODAY} kept hitting the keyboard and screwing with the mouse. I'm beginning to ratchet up the cafrdio. I wish I could pull off two workouts a day so I could get two cardio sessions in but I will work on doing HIIT sessions for the next three months 3-4 times a week post workout. The plan is to use the treadmill and sprint with a 3% incline @ 4-6mph for 8 sets. Next month I will bracket it at 3.5% Incline in the 5-7 range and final month 4%, 6-8 mph.

    I finished todays workout in bracket #1. I dialed down my meals to one every 3hrs for BF burning purposes. 4-5 shakes and one main meal. Snacks in between may be a small sandwich, salad or such which I will let you know as I eat them. Mainly it will be shakes and 1 major meal. If you tell me I'm running too slow or not eating enough I swear I will find you and kick you in the back of the neck. j/k

    Just remember I'm 6'5", 352 and leaning and cutting. It's going to shock a lot of people. I'm there and people m,istaken my mid section for fat. It's solid as hell but just sticks out, it's convex. They don't even know {U.O.E.N.O}.

    Have you tried dumbbell dead stops. Might help so you can reset yourself on each pull.

    THANK YOU WASME:

    Been at this a long time. Funny this is, this morning this guy was working out. He was loud and obnoxious. I must admit I've been very talkative in the gym but when I speak it's about my training or diet or something pertaining to what my worout partner are doing. So, this guy places 4, 45lb plates and a Quarter on the hammer bench machine. He then looks at me {which I'm wearing a modified cutoff tee, which you can see my chest thick muscled and hanging out both sides} He says "Hey, do you want these 45's as I finish each set." I sad "Ummmm, no thank you." He looks at me perplexed and struts around the machine, lays down and grunts and pushes with intensity to lift the weight. He drops it and gets up and walks off to talk to some of the woman in the gym.

    Now this particular morning there were many in there. More than I'm used to. he is laughing and being loud and says, man there are too many woman in here. WTF? It's freaking eye candy. He then goes back to the Hammer Press machine and drops the 25's and gets up to walk off and socialize. He continues this for the next 30 minutes. Meanwhile, he completes his sets and gets up and picks up DB and lifts and grunts to only put them down and cackle once more. I'm thinking really, you think your king in this gym. Why? Because I decided my work weeks were volume based, since I have no training partner. Especially, since I chose to bench for 10x10 as opposed to placing 5 x 45 plates on the same piece of equipment and bang out 4 sets for 15 reps. No thank you. I'll just relax for now and wait another day when your not thinking and kill his emotions.

    Normally I wouldn't say this but mmy goodness, who says there are too many woman in the weight room! There was a crossfitter, Figure woman, BB woman, young college chicks and such in there this morning. Why not lift and enjoy the view. Just like any other man in the gymm I love to pretend I'nm not googling over tight bottoms doing stradles and such. Believe me, I'm sure they are well aware their being watched. Why else would they wear bootyshorts to workout knowing guys are there. Otherwise, they can join curves.

    Anyways, that's my story. This guy had no idea what I'm capable of or why I wouldn't take his 45's, seriously. Your not punking me, I'm just training differently. Don't get me wrong, I'm not the best, strongest, fastest, or even greatest but I'm bigger than most, especially of all my friends, who used to be jocks. I'm bigger than the 6'5", 190lbs me. I'm always ready to spill all my training secrets. People just tend to not believe me.
