  1. Timmay's Drive+RPM=Crack Log


    Im Sam, but as far as most of my friends are concerned, im Timmay(a nickname from grade school). Ill be logging Drive/RPM combo.

    About Me: I am a freshman Bio Major at University of Delaware. I have been seriously lifting since February when I desperately wanted to add some size after 5 years of competative wrestling/weight control. I finished wrestling in February at 128 lbs with cheekbones and all or so and Im now sitting at 148 lbs with blurry abs. My goals are to add some mass while limiting fat gains to a reasonable extent.

    Training: I lift 4 days a week with tuesday, wednesday, and sunday as rest days. Ill be dosing 5 drive a day and 3 rpm in addition on workout days (subject to change)

    Diet:Roughly 2000 calories or so, about a 40/40/20 split

    Day 1:
    October 22, 2007
    I just got out of the gym after a killer leg workout and I must say that this combo is amazing. I didnt add huge weight but my energy was through the roof. I was hardly resting between sets and putting up good weight. ( which is good because I had to run to class right after. Ill post up weights from the workout later.

  10. Timmay!,

    Consider making a DB press your first exercise for awhile, and lowering your rep range.

    The flys you're doing.... they on a machine? If so, I'd drop them for DB flys.
    I've made great gains in the past using variations of the "Muscle Rounds" concept, i.e. 6 sets of 6 or 6 sets of 4, etc w/ a 15-20 sec rest. These are usually done after your heavy sets.

  11. thanks for the tips, ill tweak my chest workout next time with these.

  12. Day 4
    10/25/07
    Rest day today. I had some good vascularity going on in my arms today even though there I didnt work out. Energy was steady all day. Excited to get back into the gym tomorrow

  13. Day 5
    October 26 2007

    Well today was interesting. By the end of my workout I was physically wiped out. My triceps felt like they were gonna fall off. Mentally however I was full of energy and ready to go another few sets, my body would have no part of that. Usually im done mentally and I have to dig deeper to keep good form and motivation those last 2 sets. Also I usually have no response at all to stims.( Ephedrine HCL gave me little to no energy and I could sleep an hour or 2 after taking it). so im really surprised to get solid energy from RPM. not sure how that works but im not complaining at all. not sure what was going on either but i saw a huge gain in my tri-press down. also im starting to get more confident with the romanian deadlift so im upping my weight there.

    Back/Triceps
    Wide Grip Pullups(using bodyweight)
    12, 12, 11, 10.5(failed 2/3 way up)

    Romanian Deadlifts145x12, 165x12, 185x10

    Strength-solid, went up 20lbs in the tri press on the same machine I always use.
    Bodyweight- NA
    Pumps- Great
    Endurance- Insane
    Agression-Good
    Focus- Good, no class today(FALL BREAK)
    Libido-Still high
    Energy- Plenty

  14. Day 7
    October 28-2007

    Yesterday was a lil wild with fall break and all so I didnt make it to the gym, I made up for it today and hit the gym hard. Energy was way up and I felt great. That and the gym was damn near empty so I was blasting back and forth keeping the intensity up. On a humerous note, there was a parade on main street at UD, and main street runs right by the gym. So I come walking out of the gym and walking right toward me is a big gorilla. I have to say I have never been in that position before. Good thing I took my RPM/DRIVE so i could get outta there

    Focus- Good, I was mad at myself for not making it to the gym yesterday
    Libido-High
    Muscle Density-Same
    Energy- Insane

  15. You didn't need to get outta the way.... w/ RPM/Drive, you had the option of throwing down.

  16. If only he had neovar too, he might have taken the gorilla on

  17. good point, next time i see a gorilla coming my way, ill take him on

  24. Day 15
    November 5 2007

    Good workout today. Went up a lil in Leg Extentions. Other exercises stayed steady. When I was doing my squats today I got really dizzy around the 3rd set. After my 4th set I had to sit down for a few seconds. The same dizziness came with my last set of Deadlifts. My breathing was the same as always. Any ideas where this is coming from? Anyway it went away toward the end of my workout.

    The dizziness probably has to do with increased intrathoracic pressure from the squats and deadlifts- your blood pressure can shoot up to astronomical levels during the Valsalva (breath holding at bottom of squat or deadlift) maneuver......

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

  27. 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.

    Chest Biceps
    DB Bench Press
    55x12, 60x12, 65x10
    Flat Bench
    145x13, 155x10, 160x7(almost 8)
    DB Incline Press
    55x12, 60x10, 60x10, 65x9
    DB Flys
    40x12, 50x10, 50x10, 55x8
    Hammer Curl
    35x15, 35x15, 40x12, 40x12
    Concentration Curl
    40x13, 45x 10, 45x10
    LIGHT AB WORK

    Strength- Up
    Pumps- Great
    Bodyweight-NA
    Focus-Great
    Libido-High
    Muscle Density- Same
    Energy- High
    Endurance- Good

  28. 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

  29. 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?

  30. 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.
