    Believe me, my lifts are not ridiculous. I work out with light weighs for reps...rarly going heavy. The older I get, the more I realize it's a marathon...not a sprint. I've had my share of injuries in the past while lifting heavy...now I just try and stay as lean and tone as possible.

    I would love to at least check out your splits/rep schemes...ya know --- general workout thoughts/ways you do things.

    Your numbers aren't THAT bad

  10. At thirty one you can go heavy depending on injuries . People say to increase reps is around age thirty five. Im sure you can get some heavy ass weights up and moving ;provided that you put in the work!

    Im Twenty six and going as heavy as I can to build a good foundation before im FORCED to go lighter..aka when you get older..Hopefully Ill defy that statement when Im older. The mind can beat any law!

    I've found my body responds very well to higher reps. It depends on what look your going for I suppose. For the Men's health look...my workouts are perfect. If your wanting FLEX, my workouts 5 years ago were perfect. I've been both and can tell you that I feel my best staying lean and tone, rather than big and bulky. Each to his own I suppose.

    Your smart to build your foundation now...just be careful of injuries. I've seen way to many young guys get injured trying to lift weights that were way to heavy for them. It only takes half a second to blow out your rotator, knee, ac joint, etc...and they will never be the same once injured. Strict form and smooth movements are the key...as I'm sure you know.

    Great advice!

  15. workin, you are rockin man!


    I need to switch to higher reps for a bit (joints need a break), you have a favorite routine?

  16. My shoulders actually started getting bigger when I switched from lower reps to higher reps. Log looks good Workin. You got me excited to try XF!

    I see all ages doing this. Bad technique and form, just so they think stroke their ego. And it is not just about how heavy you go, but the stimuli and stress you apply to your muscles which can be done with any weight. The bottom line, strict form and control the weight.

    I'm finally learning that. And funny, its much harder to do squats with 50lbs and have your butt hit your heels than it is to do just partway down with 200lbs.

    Exactly. Tons of people tell me "You can only squat 2 plates?!" I tell them do it like I do you'll cry for your mama lol

    FARSE!!!

    Heavy weights build muscle....remember that!

    Even if your rep ranges are 10-15, put AS MUCH AS YOU CAN on there for those 10-15

    Since you try to stay between 6-8% bodyfat year round, what does your cardio routine look like? Would you say you are more ectomorphic or endomorphic (Even though you look completely mesomorphic)?

    My goal is similar to yours. I'm at about 10-12% bf and want to get to the 6-8% and then stay there.

    Sub'ed.

    I'm somewhere between ecto and meso. I hate doing cardio so when I do it, it's always HITT style and usually not more than 3 days per week. I prefer first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

    When weight training, I try and keep my heart rate up as well. I usually won't rest more than 60-90 seconds between sets. Hope this helps!

    This is what my current split looks like. All exercises are performed strict form and rest periods kept to 60-90 seconds max. I keep my rep range between 8-15 for ALL exercises:

    Day 1: Quads, Hamstrings
    Quads: Warm Up: Leg Extensions, Squats, Hack Squat, and Heavy Leg Extensions
    Hamstrings: Stiff-Legged Dead Lift, Lunges, and Hamstring Curls


    Day 2: Chest, Triceps, Calves, Abs
    Chest: Incline Presses (Dumbbell-Barbell), Incline Flies
    (Flat Flies/Alternate), and Cable Crossovers
    Triceps: Close Grip Bench Presses, Tricep Pushdown, and Dips
    Calves: Standing Calf Raises, and Seated Calf Raises
    Abs: Crunches (5 sets of 25), and Hanging Leg Raises (3 sets of 15)


    Day 3: Rest Day


    Day 4: Back, Biceps, Calves
    Back: Chins, Dead Lifts Lat-Pulldowns, and Dumbbell Rows
    (Alternate With Barbell Rows)
    Biceps: Barbell Curls, Hammer Curls, and Concentration Curls
    (Alternate With Machine Concentration Curls)
    Calves: Standing Calf Raises, and Seated Calf Raises


    Day 5: Delts, Calves, Abs
    Delts: Military Presses, Dumbbell Presses, and Super Set: Side, Front
    and Rear Dumbbell Laterals
    Calves and Abs (Same as Tuesday)


    Day 6: Rest

    Day 7: repeat cycle

    If I feel I need an extra day off, I take it. If I feel I don't need a day off, I'll workout even if it's a scheduled rest day. It all depends on how I feel...that's why it's difficult to break down exactly what I do week after week as it's always changing.

    Workin

  24. Looks good Workin!!!

  25. Day 22.

    Feeling noticeably stronger on all exercises and my endurance is through the roof! I think XF is starting to work it's magic.

    Side note, I added Leviathan to the mix at 4 caps per day. Two first thing in the morning and 2 just prior to my workout. The energy has been great and I hope this will help keep my midsection tight. The XF is causing me to eat more than usual but I seem to be responding well to the calorie increase. We will see if than continues.
