  1. Happens to me too during deads + squats if i'm really hitting that 100%. Occasionally happens on bench presses too, not so often


  2. November 6 2007

    Good workout today, still struggling with chest though. Moved up a little in the db press. Is it strange that my flat db press and my incline db press are damn near equal? Could it be im used to the movement with the incline? Also thanks for the replies on the dizziness. I never really thought into it like that.

  3. its not that strange. I'm wondering whether you are overworking the chest a little effectively doing 6 sets of benchpresses between dbs + bb. that would hold it back some i think. Might want to try doing higher weights for lower rep counts for that for a few weeks too

  4. November 8 2007

    off day. got some cardio in. Feeling really good. Im gonna start upping the weight and hitting fewer reps with all my exercises. How many sets and how many exercises should I be hitting my chest with?

  5. You might be ok with total set count, but do (alternating weeks) one as a high rep count, one as a low.

    so instead of this

    DB Bench Press
    55x12, 60x12, 65x10
    Flat Bench
    145x13, 155x10, 160x7(almost 8)


    do this (guesses on weights)

    DB Bench Press
    70x6, 75x5, 80x3
    Flat Bench
    150x12, 150x10, 150x10

    then the following week

    DB Bench Press
    60x12, 60x12, 60x12
    Flat Bench
    180x6, 180x5, 180x4

    since you are already doing the inclines tho, it might be worthwhile to drop to just 2 sets with each of these, instead of 3.

    I attempted to lower the rep range for most of my exercises. I ran into a problem with the DB Bench Press. I could not get my right arm up on the DB Bench press with the 75's to save my life. My left arm would go up by my right was stuck. Any ideas to help with this. I tried asking for a spot but my right arm wouldnt budge. Also I realized that my form is sloppy on both my curls so I dropped the weight and attempted to get my form more precise. I got a much better pump this way.

  10. I'm not sure, but somehow I recall someone saying something about having a spotter just do a couple of quick squeezees on your forearm. it sounded odd, but may be worth a shot

    Day 23
    Good workout today. I stepped outta the smith machine with my squats. Weight went down a little but its prolly best to do them outside of the smith machine. got really dizzy again on the squats and deads. I had to sit down for a minute or so. The dizzyness only hit after the set, never during. Just a quick eyeball figure I think I have enough drive for another 2 weeks or so of this log. Ive been impressed with this stack so far and im trying to figure out where i can get the money to make this a staple. i wonder if the UD needs some human subjects for testing?

    Also my shoulder has been bothering me, the right one(the one giving me a hard time yesterday with the DB Bench) i got some sharp pain in it with the angle my arm is in while doing squats. Hopefully its feeling better soon, i have till friday for shoulders

    That was my piece of wisdom. It works wonders.... seriously.

  17. thats interesting about squeezing the forearm. any idea about how that actually works.

  18. whats your weight at now?

  19. Wide Grip Pullups(weighted)

    These numbers are all from yesterdays workout. good energy. My back is nice and sore. I also helped with my old wrestling team for about 2 hours wrestling around and trying to teach. There is no lack of energy with this stuff. As far as weight is concerned I did step on the scale after wrestling and I showed 150.6. However this was after a wrestling practice where i worked up a nice sweat. But the weights are still creeping up and the energy is still there.

    NICE!!

  21. up those cals big man. 2k is the standard amount of cals one should take in per day. now that you're lifting you're burning extra cals so you gotta make up for those and add some more. i had heard from somebody that 500 extra cals per day adds a pound a week. i've never been on the stack you're on but maybe with that you could gain more than a pound a week. especially cause you're a little bit smaller so you may have greater gains. keep it up.

  22. ^^^ i dont think thats true 500 extra cals equals a pound a week if it were id be 300 lbs already lol

    but he is right you are eating minimal of your goals were to bulk you should shoot for 3500 eating will be the only way you can grow (which im sure you already know)

  23. haha ya i'm not saying for all weights but somebody had told me at that low of weight with so many natural gains to go. may be incorrect but i'd say at that low of weight it sounds to be correct.

    i can see that when i starting lifting 2000 cals brought me from 120 to 130 in a week lol
    it was almost like my body was starving for it

  25. Hey timmay have you tried rows with maybe a BB or with DB. i think you may be able to hit the back a lot more with proper form and see great results. just my opinion. good luck man keep it up
