  1. Slaying it in here. 100 reps on squats is no joke man; I'd be dead.

    I spoke to soon. Chest DOMs are already here, no doubt they gradually take over during the night.

    Thanks bro.

    Speaking of squats, I tried more of a narrow squat with these. Usually I go relatively wide because I get more depth but read on another's log that the narrow squats hit the quads more. I went slightly below parallel, slightly... But between those and the GVT quad extensions my quads are beyond smoked.

    It's just a nice change form having my hams and ass smoked from squats...

    Absolutely - narrower stance will get the quads firing harder & load the knees more - it's the weaker stance, & knees get damaged a LOT easier than hips, but as long as you stay moderate with the weights & just listen to your knees I think it's an awesome way to squat. If you're going to PR on a powersquat, go wider & sit back. But for general development anything that doesn't injure you & hits where you want is money in my book.

    Sometimes, too, you just have to squat how it feels best - people can tell you wider or narrower or w/e, but it's always what YOU need.

  4. Pre:
    2.5-3g Creatine
    Protein shake

    Super Set 1:
    Timer was set to 20s between each set, and 20s before repeating. But, the DB's are on the other side of the gym, so by the time I got there and put on/took off the weight belt it was 30-35sec rests.

    Notes:
    I definitely had to leave my ego at the door. The weights were light, but that tempo was killing me!

    Also, my count is... 1,2,3,4,UP. Should I be going up on 4 or keep it the same? I didn't time the first set of bicep curls correctly. Sometimes I was coming up on what would be the 6th count. My neg was close to half way down on 4, but I had it right on everything else I believe.

    The pump by the time I left was crazy! I can't wait to do this routine with Max Pump® And Crea-Trona®

  5. As long as on the way down your doing a 4 count, the up can be explosive - 2 ....

    EDIT: Solid brother! The beauty of GVT, being man enough to leave that ego at the door.

  6. It's Thursday night and my quads/legs are still sore. Usually my legs taper by Wednesday night.

    As of right now I have DOMs on every muscle I've worked this week, including this mornings (usually it takes a day).

    But... I do need to add that last week at the hotel I didn't get 100% out of my workouts. That may have some to do with it.

    I really like it. I've always loved the super set routine, but this volume + tempo + limited rest truly is a challenge. At sets 6-7 I start telling myself I only have X sets left... Partially because I can't take anymore and part because I want to move to the next super set. Also, I sweat and my HR is high enough to where I don't have to do cardio. That's always a plus.

    Exactly.. it is engaging and such a challenge to get through 10x10 with the tempo... it is easily as much a mental battle as physical.

  11. If I hadn't agreed to work tomorrow is skip today. Everything is sore (my legs have let up a little, but still tight), including my shoulders an I haven't done shoulders yet. I'm worried if I skip today though I may skip tomorrow. It's tough getting up at 0330 on Saturdays, especially knowing that I can't sleep in on Sundays. My plan is to set the alarm for tomorrow and see how I feel. I'd like to do dead lifts, one Chest exercise, and two upper back (pulls) exercises, but I may not be upset about sleeping in either.

    My goal was to take big deficits and re-feed, but I'm finding it relatively hard to stay below 3000. M-F I've probably been at 29/24/31/3100/?? It's still a deficit overall if I don't go overboard this weekend. So, I'm going to start extending meal prep to cover weekends too.

  12. SUPER SET 1:
    20s break from shoulders to abs, 45 rest before restarting. 4.0.X.0 tempo on all, including the weighted crunches.

    Barbell Shoulder Press 126.67

    Set 1 : 95x10
    Set 2 : 95x10
    Set 3 : 95x9
    Set 4 : 95x9
    Set 5 : 95x8
    Set 6 : 95x8
    Set 7 : 95x8
    Set 8 : 95x8
    Set 9 : 95x8
    Set 10 : 95x6

    When I stopped hitting at least nine, I did one extra neg at 6-8 secs until it hit the safety bar.
    |
    Decline Ab Reach 60

    Set 1 : 45x10
    Set 2 : 45x10
    Set 3 : 45x10
    Set 4 : 45x10
    Set 5 : 45x10
    Set 6 : 45x10
    Set 7 : 45x10
    Set 8 : 45x10
    Set 9 : 45x10
    Set 10 : 45x10
    |

    SUPER SET 2:
    No break between the two, but 30 sec's break before restarting. I maintained the 4-second negative on all, and even went so far as to do 4-sec neg's on all three of the neg's for 6-ways (12 sec's to drop). I hope that makes sense...


    Six-Ways 6.67

    Set 1 : 5x10
    Set 2 : 5x8
    Set 3 : 5x6
    Set 4 : 5x8
    |
    Horizontal Presses 6.67

    Set 1 : 5x10
    Set 2 : 5x8
    Set 3 : 5x6
    Set 4 : 5x8
    |
    Notes
    I had maybe enough time to do maybe one more set, so instead I did weighted circles: 10#x5 fwd, x5 bwd, 5x5 fwd, x5 bwd, then held the 15's parallel for 20 seconds. Burnt like hell!

  20. Geez man, 12 sec negs on 6 ways! Crazy. I barely did 4 seconds. My shoulders were smoked

    You'd have to move pretty fast to come down 3 movements in 4 seconds. That's why I split it, because I've always had roughly 5-6 seconds on those movements (neg). Maybe that's why my weight is so light...

  23. Holy cow I'm sore today. My delta, arms, and lower traps are as sore as if this were my first week working out. I'm glad I took today off.

    I think I may split the chest and back day. I really can't get an effective dead lift day in while doing chest, and vice-versa. My late are the only muscle group that didn't get real sore. We'll see I guess I don't HAVE to get in 5 days a week...

    I think splitting them is an excellent idea. Add Tri's to chest, and Bi's to back. Really, only minor accessory work is needed in conjunction with these bigger groups/lifts. Just my opinion.

    Works for me. Let's give it a shot this week.
