I haven't done this much it just worked out that way. I usually do chest alone nothing else but I had limited time on both sessions so I hit what I could in the time I had. they felt pretty good. my shoulder gave me a twinge on both workouts especially close grip bench for tris and incline dumbbell presses. just the angle I was hitting them. it started on flat bench but I adjusted my self under the bar and took the pressure off. after I got home and started adding up the weight I realized I got a new pr on bench I have never in my life done 175 before especially for that many reps. I am curious to see what my clean bench press max would be now. I usually don't care about that , I just go for failure and I know I am doing it right for growth, but this has got me thinking. I am definitely stronger than I have ever been even getting older, this is what it is all about. my chest is sore but I didn't get to shred it as usual with cross overs . I really like to finish with them , makes me feel like I really did some work. my arms are kicking my ass this morning though! have a good one. I guess legs are it today!

quick one but a good one
started with rotator cuff warmup with 10lbers
the massive set of side laterals
200 reps 12,15,20,20,15,12 ten reps each started with 20 @3 sets
one arm cable raises
8 each arm for 4 sets at 20 lbs
machine seated shoulder press
4 sets of 10
behind the back shrugs
65 lbs 4 sets 20
one arm shrugs
20 for 4 sets each @40lbs
that's all the time I had but they are burnt.
I should be able to get legs tomorrow depending on work schedule. wish I would have had more time today , I still had power left but a buddy of mine was on the smith so I didn't get to do barbell presses.
did some core work later on at home. still trying to lose this midsection fat to see some abs before starting my bulk. in September. I am hoping to find some money to get what I want to help with this, but it isn't looking good. even some protein powder would help . with prices these days buying a lot of food for a family of five ontop of what I will need will be very expensive. don't know how single people do it. on a positive not though great workout!

08-09-2013, 04:03 PM
Boom! Nice job dude, Howd the powermax help ya through all that?
08-10-2013, 01:29 PM
little different feel with it this go round. I seemed a lot more tired that usual. could have been that shake . it really sat heavy on me for a few hours . hadn't had a protein shake in a while.

chest pains ,chest pains everybody need some chest pains!!!!!!!!!!!!
hit it hard today and pre exhausted the pecs early on.
high and low cable flyes
4 sets ea of 15
4 sets 10 135
flat bench on smith
4 sets 8-10 135
decline bench 105 4 sets 10
incline dumbbell press
30,40,40 10 reps each
flat cable flyes
4 sets 15
3 sets 15
after the cables I couldn't lift as much weight as I had wanted but as Dorian Yates says " it doesn't matter after the muscle is exhausted it's all good "
forgot to pack my Powermax in my bag and that made abig difference in the pump and focus of my workout. I definitely felt different today without it. it is in my bag Now!!!
I really wish I had away to get some side money for a run this fall but it isn't looking good. I guess i'll have to do it the old fashion way eat my way there. my job allows me no spare time to do anything to earn any so that isn't an option. maybe the good fairy will leave me some on my birthday next month.
08-13-2013, 08:06 PM
Man Chef, chest burnout brother. How much time did that workout take? What PH cycle were you planning for the fall? PM me if you would like privacy.

08-15-2013, 10:27 AM

08-18-2013, 12:18 PM
Definitely jealous! You're kicking ass with you're shoulder workouts and I'm in a sling for another 3 weeks
08-18-2013, 08:44 PM
punched out a little leg workout tonight with my baby girl doing arms . ten lb dumbbell curls(two arm) 5 lb dumbbell hammers she was screaming!
150 leg extensions at 80 lbs
ez bar hack squats at 100 for 50 reps
then I had to walk back up stairs that was the hardest ! i'll get em tomorrow!
08-19-2013, 07:57 PM
did a TORQ workout on legs tonight . it's one exercise per muscle group with high reps minimum rest
did legs , calves and arms
leg extensions 90 lbs 30,20,10
leg curls 70-30,20,10
seated calf raises-95-30,20,20,15,10
preacher curls -55-20,20,15,10,5
straight bar pushdowns-70-30.20,15,10
I never though doing a medium high weight (for my workout) would take me to failure this fast but I was stopping on the single reps to rest and get half reps.
I know I will be sore as hell tomorrow because when I switched from extensions to curls the bar on the machine was killing my quads . I thought my calves would explode on the raises. all in 30 minutes. I am just trying to change things up and keep the muscles thinking what is next, I know this may seem unorthodox to the veterans but this is a regime really used a lot by older athletes because of not being able to take the big weight anymore. joint and tendon pains getting in the way , age slowly trying to stop us. screw that, blow the muscles mind as much as possible I say. but I could be wrong I am just becoming an old fart!
08-20-2013, 08:46 AM
Nice work man! It's a good thing to switch it up from time to time, keeps those muscles guessing!
08-20-2013, 04:50 PM
all jacked up on powermax and rocking out the back today!
started with seated rows and ran the rack
four full sets at 155,195,195,195 then all the way down to 65 20 reps each to start finished with 6
right into close grip pulldowns 195, 175,175,175 for 10 each
behind the back under the leg rope pulls (hell I don't know what they are called) 4 sets at 55 lbs of 15
superset behind the back barbell shrugs with one arm rows and pullups
215,170,135,135 for 20 each , 50,60,60,60, 10 each, bodyweight to failure every set
that was it short and sweet wide open minimum rest back is full but not hurting. my other gym has more back related equipment but you work with what you have . good one today very nice. measured last night have gained a 1/2 inch on my ams an inch on my chest , waist went down two. that will do for sure.
08-21-2013, 08:42 AM
Damn, very nice on the measurements! I'm very jealous, lol. Since my surgery I've been going the opposite way! Soon enough I'll be back at it, me my Powermax and some iron! Keep up the good work in here man, very happy Powermax has delivered for you.

probably gonna take another day off today because my shoulder is still keeping me up at night. doesn't really bother me during the day thought , weird!
all my kids are working out daily now. situps , pushups , jumping jacks really cool to see them taking stock in what dad is doing. my daughters saw a little fat roll around their midsection and freaked out. all that summer laying around on rainy days snacking takes its toll!lol
08-22-2013, 08:12 PM
well of course I didn't take a day off! I hit chest today really hard with the TORQ workout. I did four exercises though instead of just one.
decline dumbbell press 40 lbs for 50 reps, 35, 20,15, 10, 16 superset with cable bentover press
(taking the place of dips) that really wrecked my pecs good. takes all the stress off your arms and isolates the pecs.
4 sets 35,45,45,55 for 20 each
4 sets 50,40,30,20 with 15,20,20,25 lb dumbbells
superset with cable flyes
45 for 20, for two sets, 55 for 20, 65 for 12
that was a workout. shoulder started pinching a little on the last set so I went no farther. cannot risk any type of injury this year. I upped my cals a little by about 5-600 a day with protein shakes around 200 cals each with 8 grams protein, 22 carbs so I take about 2-3 each day in the morning before breakfast to jump start my day. my gut look a little inflated lately so I am gonna watch it and see if that is what is doing it . my workouts haven't changed any in fact they have increased in intensity so I am not sure I understand why I am gaining fat. the powermax rocks my workouts and I sweat like hell during them so my cardio is up from minimal rest times. all I did today was in 30 minutes! I am taking another companies fat burner at two a day to help control but it may still be in the placebo phase . it usually take two weeks to kick in and my appetite hasn't diminished like before on it. I will keep an eye on it. Performax is working out great for me , really like the minimal stim but the focus is unbelievable .
08-23-2013, 08:37 AM
Glad your enjoying it And holy volume batman! Very nicely done
