R1 is hitting it hard before its shredding time

  1. I agree with everyone else that there are tons of different ways to do rows. There's no set answer. I think that as long as you are feeling it in the area that you intend to hit then you're doing something right.

    Unfortunately, my gym doesn't have one. , although my old gym had one it was garbage.

  7. Today my back isnt even very sore. I know soreness = effectiveness, just throwing that out there. I felt like i blasted back. compared to chest day, my chest was shot. back just feels tight but ill get in the hot tub tonight for about 45 min to get it ready for my "powerlifting" day tomorrow.

    edit: side note on supplements. Versa is gone, Erase is gone. I am now only using (other than my staples) Compound 20 and Forskolin 95. have about a week left on C20.

    Did you mean soreness doesn't equal effectiveness? I wouldn't be too concerned about a lack of DOMS. I can have some highly effective workouts with very minimal to no soreness in the days that follow.

    Def agree here. Sore doesn't always = effectiveness.

    I agree my legs always get hella sore, I just meant just cuz you're not sore doesn't mean it wasn't a great workout. My chest and shoulders hardly ever get sore.

    Same here man.. But what I've noticed is when I do low volume heavy weight.. That's when I'll feel sore.. But when all I do is high volume lightweights.. I never get sore from that.. Maybe I don't damage enough fibers with the lighter weights?

    The body adapts very well to what we put it through. That's why I like the idea of switching things up every so often (even if its something little).

  17. 4/17 - Wednesday

    Today was my "powerlifting" day. Kept it low rep but did more compound lifts with a few accessory lifts mixed in between.

    started with DC legs

    Calf Raises (seated) - 70

    Hamstring pull - 3 sets DC

    Leg Press - window maker with 360 - slowly working my legs back

    Deadlift (sumo)- 225x5 285x3 315x1 - felt great to finally go a little heavier on deads

    front squat/ shoulder press (still have no clue what these are called) - 70x6 80x4 95x2

    Side Raises - 3 sets reps 8-12

  19. Nice numbers.

    I think it is just called BB Front Squat to Press.

  20. Keep it up! Very inspiring!

  21. 4/18

    quick update. legs and back are shot from yesterday. hit the hot tub tonight to relax those muscles. i am officially off my stack so i will take a little break and then hop on Mass HGH and Anabeta for 8 weeks. i will TRY to take a 8 week break but we will see how long that lasts lol

    btw, anybody have IGF 2, HGHup, or Mass HGH they wanna trade?

    dont have time to chat right now, so ill just post my numbers then give my thoughts tonight. i saw some strength increases already which is awesome

    BB Bench - 235x6 245x4 255x2
    BB Incline - 185x6 205x4 225x2
    Flys - 3 sets 6,4,2

    BB Curl - 75x6 85x4 95x2
    Preacher single hand machine - 50x6 55x4 60x2
    Cable Curls - 3 sets 6,4,2

    so as you can see, when u compare this lift and last friday's lift, i have gotten stronger. my bench is up, BB curl is up, and preacher.

  23. Hot tub is amazing for tight muscles. My only problem is that I get hot too fast and want to get out before they really loosen up.

    I can normally do 225x12 but those 4 second negatives kill but I'm at 235x6 with 4 second negs so that's huge improvement for one week I'd say!
