  1. 7/30 workout - Chest & Biceps


    Today for chest I focused on more of a strength building type workout, doing fewer total sets but much higher volume. Most of my compound sets focused on 5 reps max, pyramiding up.

    Chest:
    warm-ups...
    bar x 25
    30 lb flyes x 15

    flat bench:
    185 x 15
    265 x 5
    285 x 5 (the trainer spotting me told me i def got 3 1/2, but that he only helped a little on the last two to keep them fluid motion) - PR
    295 x 3 + 2 assisted - PR
    185 x 15

    Barbell incline, 45 degrees:
    205 x 5
    225 x 3 + 1 assisted

    Weighted dip, superset w/ flat flye:
    BW + 45 lbs x 6, 60 x 8

    **that was all I did for chest. Since I went higher I was already burned out from all the pressing and didn't want to overtrain.

    Biceps:
    barbell curl, superset w/ alt dumbbell hammers:
    bar x 10
    95 x 8, 40 x 10
    115 x 7, 45 x 8

    Dumbbell preachers, drop set:
    55 x 5, 40 x 5

    After 3 heavy supersets I was done all together. This workout was very good I think. I'm always suspicious of my accomplishments w new weights, whenever somebody is spotting me, bc I never know how significantly they helped while spotting. But I'm going to trust what the trainer told me.

    I'm eager to boost my strength, so fairly shortly I think I may shy away from more of a bodybuilding routine and attempt a powerlifting hybrid. As of now, I'm not really following a set program as much as I'm trying just to stimulate my muscles each workout into hypertrophy. My strength as been going up week after week, but I'd like to start following more of an established program to see quantifiable results.

    Any thoughts/ ideas on my training methods, and /or how I can improve upon them are appreciated.

  2. 8/1 workout - legs, abs


    Today's workout was very good. I took yesterday off bc I really didn't feel like lifting very much, so I deferred doing legs til today. Strength felt good, endurance was very good.

    I just got my second bottle of Incarnate the other day, and I reverted back to taking 4 caps instead of 3 in one serving. I gotta say... I really did sense a difference today, especially in my latter sets. The B-Alanine/ Creatine Mono combo works very nicely.

    Legs:
    warm-up on the eliptical
    leg press:
    395 x 12 -- warmup
    575 x 15
    755 x 12
    935 x 8
    1025 x 10
    ** I coulda kept going on most of those sets, but I didn't want to work til total failure.

    Deep hack squat:
    270 x 12
    270 x 12
    180 x 20

    Leg ext (focusing on slow reps):
    85 x 10
    85 x 8, drop down >> 55 x 4
    70 x 10 >> 40 x 5 >> 10 x 3

    Smith lunges, superset w/ LB curls:
    135 x 10, BW x 20
    95 x 12, BW x 20

    leg curls:
    105 x 20
    115 x 15

    following legs, i did a bunch of ab work. like i said, endurance was extremely high this workout. i'm nearing the end of the mass fx stack. soon will begin leviathan a week or so after everything runs out.

    weight was 206 lbs this morning up 11 lbs since i started.

    the hyperdrol should help you dry out.....

    The whole water weight thing really is amusing to me, yes I know in some cases there is bloat, but really let's talk about how much of your muscle / body is water?

  7. 8/2 workout - shoulders/ triceps


    strength was really up on tonight's workout i read an article today that discussed how preworkout stretching is potentially counterproductive and can reduce strength levels. so i just did a few more warmups instead...

    Shoulders:
    dumbbell press:
    30 x 20 - warmup
    40 x 15 - warmup
    45 x 15 - warmup

    80 x 10
    90 x 8
    100 x 4

    standing military press:
    bar x 12
    135 x 10
    155 x 5

    plate front raise, superset w/ lat raise:
    45 x 10, 30 x 10

    Arnold press, superset w/ lat raise:
    65 x 7, 30 x 10

    Arnold press, dropset:
    70 x 4, 55 x 2

    Triceps:
    Dips:
    BW x 12
    BW + 45 x 8
    BW + 90 x 3

    Rope ext:
    170 x 8
    200 x 4

    CGB, superset w/ V BAR pushdowns:
    205 x 5, 65 x 12
    185 x 6, 80 x 9

    i'd say my tricep power was a little lower than usual, but I exerted myself quite a lot with shoulders. I'm very pleased with tonight's workout. pressing the 80s was nothing, I felt like I could've easily gotten a few more reps w/o help. I just barely got 8 w 90 on my own. Next week I'll up the weight and go to 100s w/o much wait.
  8. 8/3 workout - back, traps, calves


    so i'm nearing the end of my first stack but a week or so after I finish I have yet another to look forward to haha.

    i really didn't feel like lifting today, this morning. it was 78 degrees in my house last night and I had mad hot flashes for the longest time, I went to bed at 1 and couldn't fall asleep til 3. then I had to wake up at 9 for work at 10. it was bad...

    but i mustered up the energy tn to do heavy back and traps, and I had a pretty decent lift.

    Back:
    warm-ups....

    Underhanded bent over row:
    135 x 12
    245 x 5
    275 x 5
    295 x 5
    315 x 3
    225 x 12

    Dumbbell row:
    125 x 10
    125 x 8

    Incline dumbbell row:
    110 x 8

    Widegrip lat pulldown, concentrated reps:
    205 x 5
    175 x 6

    Traps:
    barbell shrug:
    bar x 15
    225 x 8
    265 x 8
    185 x 12

    dumbbell shrug:
    85 x 8
    100 x 6

    Calves:
    smith calf raises, dropset:
    405 x 12 >> 315 x 6 >> 225 x 5

    It's been about 45 min since I stopped and I still feel pumped, it's great
    I'm going to be making some heavy changes to my lifting routine this weekend, starting next week. Once I finish the FX stack I'll continue supplementing w basic creatine mono for a week or so, then begin my next log on leviathan and Incarnate.

    Obviously I will NOT be taking creatine w Leviathan, lest I should waste my money.

  9. pumped cant wait....great log
