  1. R1 is hitting it hard before its shredding time


    hey guys,

    i had this log going on in the supp section b/c im taking Versa, C20, Erase, Forskolin 95 and jack3d micro. I am almost done with Versa but still have the rest going. I am changing the location b/c I want to spend more time commenting/chatting about training, form, physique and more rather than supplements. I finished DC training about 2 weeks ago. Here are my lifts from Friday (last update in the previous location in supp section)

    4/5

    Friday I did chest and biceps with some cardio after. had a great workout. micro is still the perfect stim for me right now. wanna give it a try without Versa 1. I wanna see if that "focus" really is Versa 1 or a placebo. I have a few days left of Versa so once i am out, I will take micro without it (obviously) and note any changes or the lack thereof.

    Chest
    1.) BB Bench - 245x6 250x4 255x2
    2.) Incline Machine - 210x12 225x10 255x8
    3.) Flys - 2 sets 20 reps, then 10 reps

    Biceps
    1.) Preacher Curl Machine - 90x12 100x7 110x4
    2.) DB Curl - 30x12 35x10 40x8 (my biceps were shot from heavy preachers)
    3.) EZ Bar Close Grip Curl - 21s with 50

    had a great pump, vascularity is through the roof


    As you can see, im starting to transition from DC to a routine thats a little higher in volume. My diet is a clean bulk but I am doing some cardio and taking those supps to keep fat minimal. I am lifting very low reps on my first exercise of said body part. Ive always loved to do this. When i lift low reps throughout my whole workout, it kills my joints so I only do it with one workout for each body part (usually thr first one).

    I lift Mon/Wed/Fri -

    Monday - Back/Tri
    Wed - Legs/Shoulders
    Fri - Chest/Bi

    I will start to incorporate some form of cardio after every lift whether it is boxing, stair running, football drills, swimming...etc but not for very long. Usually short and intense. I am getting in shape for HIIT for my cardio for my cut coming up.

    I would love to get feedback from you guys as you start to see what Im lifting and how I am doing it. Thanks guys and look forward to talking to you all.

  6. as of now, i have about 3 days left on Versa 1, about a week (maybe more) on Compound 20, 2-3 weeks left on Erase, and I will be using Forskolin 95 for 3 months or so at 50mg's. been on it for about 2 weeks. I am trying to gain as much muscle as i can as well as staying lean so it makes my cut that much easier. I usually only hardcore cut for 2-3 weeks as i cut very easy so I wont be using any supps except forskolin 95. Ill get more into my cardio routine for cutting when the time comes. right now, focusing on LBM. gonna be sore tomorrow, i can already tell. really love high(er) volume

    Today was my "power lifting" day. I mainly do legs and shoulders but focus on compound lifts and going heavy. I forgot to jot down my numbers but here is what I did

    Calf Raises - DC

    Straight Leg Deads - 3 sets 8,6,4

    Leg Press - Window Maker

    Deadlifts - 2 sets (with 2 warmups) 6,3

    I have no clue what these are called, so help me out here. I have the bar in a position as If i am doing a Front Squat. I squat down then come back up and shoulder press it.

    Whatever they are called - 3 sets 10,7,4

    Machine Shoulder Press - 3 sets 12,8,4

    Arnold Press - 2 sets 15, 10

    Cable Side Raises - 1 set 20 reps

    just moved it as i am seeking suggestions/feedback on training for my goals. still taking the stack though but Versa is just about over. still have some C20, Erase, Forskolin left. plenty of jack3d micro and muscle marinade. ive been taking alot of supps lately and is making me go back and forth with the idea of adding in anabeta once Versa is done.

  18. im wanting to keep it somewhat high volume, low - mid rep range with some power lifts in the mix of low reps. what would you guys do? just trying to get perspective and see how far off/how close i am. i know everybody is different, just wanna get some thoughts

    Monday - Back/Triceps
    Wed - Legs/Shoulders
    Fri - Chest/Biceps

    my goals are to build muscle but not accumulate too much body fat. thats why im taking "cutting" supplements but eating like im on a clean bulk. what you guys think?

  19. Well if that's whats working for you.. Continue doing it. But if u feel like you haven't seen results for a while, maybe change it up a bit
    Me personally I like to do highrep(lighter) for a few weeks then switch to a low rep range(heavy) .. And switch up intensities/rest periods on certain days of the week depending on how I feel

    Ever tried P/RR/S ??

    this is my first time going really heavy on most of my lifts. i usually only go heavy on my first lift then 8-12 reps for the rest. occasionally go high rep for a change of pace. also rotate with 5x5 and DC. HIIT is my cutting routine but that doesnt last long since i cut fast from diet alone.

    i dont even know what P/RR/S is lol

    Well it's basically split into a Power week/Rep range week/shock week

    Something like how I did with heavy weights, then light, then a shock week where you would do supersets drop sets and other crazy sht lol give it a try .. Ima drop my 531 program next week to try this so I can start cutting for summer

  23. that def sounds like something i would love. may start it Monday

  24. Yes I was going to suggest MD training but I know with your schedule, 3 days/week works for you. I will advise to try it when your schedule allows for more time to train. I'm hooked on it.

    I was just suggested to look into prrs as well and it def looks intriguing.

    multi quote button has been messed up off and on for a while now so sorry about replying to both of u in separate replies. Starting in May, ill be able to lift 4 days a week until August so I will look into it. Im not very knowledgeable on the various routines. Normally, I will do body splits but always change the reps, do super sets, change the format, rotate with DC...etc so thanks for helping

  30. Id agree prrs and md are both great routines. If you're thinking more strength, try 5/3/1

  31. Baller I will send the MD links via pm so you can look over them :-)

  33. Mtn. Dog is definitely worth checking out, but doesn't really include the "heavy" low rep work that you're looking for. However, I've always preferred low rep as well and loved the change of pace with MD.

    During the second phase he also says you can include band and chain work, progressively adding more tension until you get to the third phase

    Yeah, the intensity goes up, but it still isn't the lower rep work R1 wanted to include. I'd suggest that he considers it anyways.

    PRRS sounds like a great option as well.

    Yeah I'd agree, it's more focused on volume, but you gotta keep the reps fairly low if actually using all that chain or band tension

    could care less about strength to be honest. yeah, im one of those guys haha

    The reason I want low rep is because i havent done it in so long and want to change it up. been on high volume, 8-12 reps then went to DC.
