    Team USPlabs Jimmy Robinson - Groundbreaking Off-season Log!


    What's going on AM!!

    There is a lot of USPLabs love on this forum, so I thought I would add my log over here for those of you who may not be on www .usplabsdirect. com/forum

    I'll add updates from here on out directly to this log, but here is a link to my thread on their forum for anyone who would like to catch up

    Yesterday's workout was a bit of a quick one as I tend to blast through bis/tris with the quickness and then spend some good time on my calves.

    I only do bis and tris on the same day because it allows me to focus solely on Back and solely on Chest. Opposed to pairing those larger muscles with their assisting smaller muscle group (i.e bis and tris).

    It's just another way my schedule is fit to best work for me as my pairing of muscle groups or what be it may be a bit from the norm at times.

    I started out with bis doing roughly only 6-8 work sets and the same went for tris.

    1arm DB preacher curl - 15lbs - 15reps 20lbs - 15reps 35lbs - 12reps 45lbs - 12reps 55lbs - 9reps

    Switched to 1set of spider curls with 25lbs for a real deep stretch getting roughly 10 or 12 reps

    Incline DB curl - 30lbs - 12reps 40lbs - 9reps 35lbs - 10reps

    Pushdowns switching each set from a narrow grip to a more wide grip for about 6sets total - never dropping below 10reps and basically repped the stack the whole time

    Overhead DB Press - 100lbs - 15reps 110lbs - 13reps 115lbs - 10reps

    I than made my way to blasting my calves which I don't really have much of a structured workout for. I just keep hitting them from all angles, varied amount of reps and speed, peak contraction holds, deep stretches. I just really give it to em, let them recover and do it all over again next workout maybe with a different exercise order.

    Seated Calf Raise 1 leg at a time - bunch of sets and reps <shrugs>

    Incline Leg Press Calf Raise 1 leg at a time - same

    Standing Calf Raise 2legs - went heavier here to now move some weight

    Standing Calf Raise 1 leg - slow and controlled reps - at this point I was shot and could barely move any weight and was just going for a full stretch and peak contraction

    Finished up with 20min of liss on the tread and then it was time to get nippy!

    No cardio or weights today, rest and recover and do it all over again! Today is actually a day I'm off from everything so I hope to get a good chunk of my Christmas shopping done later on!!! Bundle up

    Would also like to thank those at USPLabs for backing me up and providing me with some of the best all Natural supplements to help me achieve my best condition yet!

    Final weeks sitting under 2k cals still matching my heaviest lifts and even going up in reps in some! I can credit that partially to the amazing effects of Prime and Pink Magic along with the rest of the USPLabs lineup. Not a single one was left behind and they all played a major role in my prep!

    Hit up the tread for only 15min of liss earlier this morning. Normally my rule of thumb is no less than 20min, but I just wanted to get some good flow started for Chest day! I also threw it in this morning so I don't have (well I don't have to do anything hehe) to do it after my workout and can get right home to food and filling that muscle out

    So Chest is on tap for later and it looks like it's going to be a hypertrophy day. I'm looking to keep the reps no lower than 8 and nothing higher than 12, although I "may" slip a sixer in there on my compounds.

    Welp...looks like I dug deep into this chest workout. Went a couple sets over the norm to try something new to see how I respond. I laid out a hypertrophy workout for today's session which I performed something of a press than stretch method. I also set this workout up following an ascending pyramid style of weight progression. Another way I change things up is by making sure I'm warmed up and ready to handle a good weight and start from the top to bottom with the heaviest weight and go down in weight each set.

    Decline BB w/narrow grip - 135lbs - 13reps 155lbs - 10reps 245lbs - 10reps 265lbs - 8reps 275lbs - 7reps

    PecDec - 145lbs - 12reps 175lbs - 11reps 205lbs - 10reps

    Flat DB Press w/ a real deep stretch and pause at the bottom - 75lbs - 9reps 85lbs - 10reps than switched over to a fixed machine flat press because I just felt my shoulders taking over way too much in this exercise.

    Flat Fixed Press - 205lbs - 9reps 220lbs - 8reps 235lbs - 8reps finishing on a slow slow controlled neg

    Flat Flyes - 40lbs - 9reps 50lbs - 9reps 60lbs - 7reps
    superset with
    DB Pullover - 70lbs - 7reps 70lbs - 6reps 60lbs - 10reps

    I didn't do any cardio afterwards because I did a bit this morning so I could get right out of the gym and back home to eat.

    It's crazy how fast my body goes into recovery mode! It's like it knows exactly when I'm done working out. The pump just dissipates and immediately shrinks up and starts repairing. I go from crazy pumps all throughout my workout, to right when I'm done stretching out...everything shrinks down to smaller than it was when I got in the gym lol I mean...this is obviously what is supposed to happen, but I guess I'm just a bit fascinated how the body works!

    If anyone else is intrigued by the body and would like to take a deeper look, take a thought into watching "Pushing the Limits" shown on the Discovery Channel. I'm sure you can you-tube it and find some clips. Nuts how granted we may take everything our body does and these episodes (broken down into sight, strength, sensation and brain power) go on to show how advanced we truly are!

    Thanks! Not to try and stroke my ego but, I can definately move a lot heavier weight and that's all I used to do. Not to long ago I toned everthing down and really focused on feeling the muscle work with nice and slow controlled movements. Being in complete control of the weight is the key to building that nice full round muscle! For too long I would just heave heavy weights around with decent form and wasn't really getting as much as I wanted out of some workouts. Chest being one of them!

    I've now included strictly 2 different type of strength days where it allows me to move that heavy weight, but still totally under control. I just have a lot more steam to move that bigger weight because I don't pyramid up as one would in a hypertrophy type workout like I just performed. But instead warmup untill ready and than get ready into the big weights! You'll see if you stick around when I do a workout of that type, which'll be next week!

    As far as what USPLabs supps I'm taking...

    At the moment I'm focusing mainly on recovery and not trying to drill my body with too many supps. The pictures above were from my show just this past October and at that point I was using every single one of USP's supps. Even getting up to as high as 15-18caps of Prime and SCRX when deep into my prep. So after my show I just took a nice like...month or month and a half break from all supps to let my body breathe a bit.

    After that period, I've started up with ModernBCAA, AP/PSLIN, PF, SCRX and would use jack3d here and there for workouts I really wanted to grind out! I'm thinking come the New Year is when I'm going to dig into some Prime, but keep the dosing something of the 6/9 protocol and find PMs way in there sometime too. At this point I don't want to rush into those supps because they can really help break through plateaus and things are still climbing just how I want them to at this point...slow and steady! Once I feel I've maxed out a bit, in come the big guns!

    Didn't do any cardio this morning nor am I going to the gym today. Just going to let my chest recover from that brutal session I had yesterday. Any time I do a stretch press routine, my chest gets fried! Gotta love it

    I didn't want to get back in today and hammer away at another body part after I just put in the amount of sets I did yesterday. Even though it wasn't a strength day and not very heavy lifting took place, the load was still there and along with the numerous reps and sets...I'm sure it took a toll on me overall. Even though I feel good to go, I just know when to step on the gas and when to ease off a bit.

    Ran a few oddjobs this morning and just going to take the rest of the day off and get all of meals in! "Might" go to my girlfriends later to just relax and watch a movie, not sure. Going to save the going out for tomorrow night!

    You can stream any kind of movie you want. If there out on DVD then the DVD is up there. Also all the T.V. shows. Just though you would like it and it should save you some money by not going out and renting or going to the movies


    P.S. The other guys is an uber good movie

    Man I would love to run prime 15/18 caps a day. That would be sick! I had good results just running one bottle on the minimum...I can't imagine what would happen if I did 15/18 and my very first log ever was OEP and tt-33. OEP is some good stuff and I've gotten a lot of people on it. Haven't heard one bad complain from it.

    Oh BTW what's yok3d suppose to be?

    Hit 15min of liss on the tread this morning for a little damage control. Forgot to add that yesterday I pushed my cals way up for a nice body shock! Also help flood my chest with the extra nutrients since it's something I'm looking to bring up!

    Going to cook chicken for the week, be back in a bit with a bit more of a detailed update!

    I guess it will leave something to desire huh A bit expensive to dig into that amount but, quite the experience and results to boot! Nothing wrong with sticking to the recommended dosing protocol! I agree, OEP can be pretty potent for some if used properly! There will always be naysayers, but in the end...what works for you is all that matters!

    Taken off www .usplabsdirect .com/forum/yok3d-phase-2-beta-testing/7000-yok3d-phase-2-beta-testing-taking-applications-now.html

    Yok3d is said to produce what we have come to coin, “the Performance Pump” Sounds like it's going to be quite the workout enhancer!!! Really looking forward to what this brings to the table and to see what has to be said about it when it hits testing!

    Chicken pics haha Also just took a quick cheesey picture of a front double bi to showcase a bit of my offseason shape for anyone stopping by. I hate being so pale in the winter lol makes you look so much less than you actually are in pictures. For instance in the pic from the gym, there's full shoulder separation there etc that just being pale makes look like one big arm and washes all those pretty lines away lol

    I'll try to get a shot later with the shirt off to see what's hiding under there! Oh, also included one I took the other day in the gym for the forum as well! I never ever strip down to a guinea tee in the gym lol I like to stay covered up and pose more of a mystery <shrugs> ha Everyone was bustin my chops about it!

    don't know how I missed this! Good looking out on the link, not sure if it's safe though? Worms and stuff are usually linked to those types of servers, no? Sounds like it's pretty stacked though with tons of choices!

    haha yeah, The Other Guys is definitely next on the list lol

    As I constantly look to improve my physique and tweak my training to aid in just that, one thing on the list was to really bring up my traps. They just didn't peak from the front when relaxed like I want them too which will really help fill in my clavicular area. You get a good amount of work to them in certain types of rowing movements and deads etc etc, so I never really pounded directly on them thinking they would be easily overtrained. After living by this for some time, I figured it was time to give a different approach and try hammering away heavy as hell at them to see if they took on new growth. Maybe mine can take a little more abuse!? So I've actually given them their own day to flat out just kill em. Since then..what do you know? My traps have been getting ridiculously sore (which they never really got), peaking nicely from the front and starting to help fill in my clavicular area a bit.

    So this is what yesterday's workout consisted of:

    Did my usual rotator cuff and upper body warmup to get the blood flowing. Some quick ballistic type stretching and I was good to go!

    BB Shrugs to the front - 135lbs - 15reps 225lbs - 15reps - these sets here were warmup sets with very slow and controlled reps to get the muscle primed nicely. On to my worksets...
    315lbs - 12reps, still slow and controlled and then things get a bit heavy and I use a little bit of body language towards the end to really help get that full rom - 405lbs - 12reps 495lbs - 8reps x 2 - 1set with wraps both hands over and another with no wraps, chalked up and an over under grip!

    1arm at a time DB shrugs - 105lbs - 12reps 115lbs - 10reps - went for the full range of motion here really letting the db hang low and pull down on things before slowly lifting to a full contraction with a static hold on each rep for a couple seconds

    Smith BB Shrugs behind the back - 3plates a side - 12reps 4plates a side - 8reps 2plates a side - 15reps to just burn them out

    Going heavy (even if having to use a good amount of body language to get the weight moving) and moving some good weight around has really helped thicken up my upper trap area thus far. I'm going to continue on doing workouts like this as long as my body keeps responding!

    Afterwards, I hit up the abs with some hanging leg raises for 3-4sets of like 8-12reps, roman chair crunches for like 3sets of 30-40reps and than a steep decline explosive type situp for 3sets of 10-15reps

    Finished up the day with 15min of liss on the tread combined with the 15min of liss in the morning I did for a little damage control. Pushed cals really hard the day before, so I like to than clean it up a bit with some extra treat time

    1arm at a time DB shrugs - 105lbs - 12reps 115lbs - 10reps - went for the full range of motion here really letting the db hang low and pull down on things before slowly lifting to a full contraction with a static hold on each rep for a couple seconds

    Smith BB Shrugs behind the back - 3plates a side - 12reps 4plates a side - 8reps 2plates a side - 15reps to just burn them out

    Going heavy (even if having to use a good amount of body language to get the weight moving) and moving some good weight around has really helped thicken up my upper trap area thus far. I'm going to continue on doing workouts like this as long as my body keeps responding!

    Here are 2 cold shots I took earlier today. Had my girlfriend take a quick shot of me from behind. Couldn't get a good enough one in the mirror on my own no matter how hard I tried. Spread out just a little on the back shot to show a little width <shrugs>

    Figured I'd continue to share like I said I would.

    Feel I'm still holding pretty lean at my weight and am most likely going to push daily cals soon. Everything seems to be running smoothly at this point and am sticking this offseason thus far just as planned! It's crazy to think things are just getting rolling too.

    I can't wait to see where they go...

    5`8 and weighed 204.8 this morning. Always hold a little bit after a day of not working out so...tomorrow (since I'm working out today) I'll probably weigh in around 203ish.

    Before I dieted down at the end of the summer for my previous show, I was peaked at roughly 215lbs, but a bit sloppy. Weight doesn't mean to much to me, but it allows me to use numbers and the mirror to gauge how fast or slow moves are being made and adjust accordingly.

    No morning liss with Shoulder work being on tap for the day! My traps are still a little sore and I was going to do lower body work, but wanted to get Shoulders in today so I can get Chest in on time this week. I always like to try and give a good amount of time between Chest and Shoulder workouts.

    Got into the gym and started up with my normal warmup routine

    BB Military Press (still warming back up into this movement) - 2 warmup sets - 135lbs - 15reps 155lbs - 12reps 185lbs - 10reps (didn't want to gas out by doing more reps to save my strength for the heavier sets) 225lbs - 8reps on own to failure - 175lbs - 12reps

    Bent over Rear DB Raise - 30lbs - 15reps 40lbs - 12reps than over to 2sets on cables - Top Rear Cable Cross 1arm at a time - 30lbs - 15reps 25lbs - 12reps

    HS Military Press 1arm at a time - 90lbs (a side) - 12reps 115lbs - 8reps 135lbs - 8reps w/slight spot

    Med Grip Upright Row - 100lbs - 15reps 110lbs - 15reps 60lbs - 8reps with a ridiculously slow movement to just burn the muscle out

    Normally that second pressing movement wouldn't be in there, but lately I've been including a secondary just for some unilateral pressing work. Most of the time it would be a second rear delt movement but, I haven't hit that HS machine in forever and it never hurts to change things up a bit

    Finished up with 15min of liss on the tread and shot out of there to get home and eat!!!

    Looks like the Hammies are on call for tomorrow!

    hehe thanks guys!

    Not sure yet, but I may work back a little in weight and start owning the reps on sets like 205lbs and 215lbs instead of making that big jump from 185lbs to 225lbs. Wasn't able to handle the 2plates like I used too, so I may just have to work my way back up slowly again!

    I'm also maybe able to move a bit more weight on the BB because I tilt my head back a bit to recruit a bit of the upper chest and work into that clavicular area!

    Thinking it might be time for some DB work next week! I miss trying to kick those heavy ass DB's all the way up!! Well...not really...

    No morning Liss today

    Hammies were up to bat today...

    Since the Hack machine (if to call it that...it's like a mini version) we have at my gym has been broken, I thought I would give the oldschool hack a shot!

    BB Hack/Deadlift w/bar behind you - after 2 sets I realized I was just wasting my breath and wasn't feeling it like I want in my hams.

    Seated Hamstring curl 1leg at a time - 4sets x20,20,15,13reps

    Laying DB Curl - 35lbs - 15reps 45lbs - 13reps

    Standing Cable Single Leg Curl - 3sets x30,25,25 varying rep tempos

    Adductor machine - 3sets w/ a whole bunch of reps

    SLDL w/DB's - 65lbs - 12reps 80lbs - 12reps 95lbs - 10reps 105lbs - 8reps - taking the descent very slow and controlled with DB's as close to my body as possible, really aiming for feeling that deep stretch in the hams

    Finished up with 15min of liss on the tread and that was that! Off from the gym tomorrow with a strength day for Chest lined up for Thursday. Not sure if I'm going to go with a 5x5 workout or a Rest Pause DC type compound only movement to begin with.

    DB presses are AWESOME. I love doing them more than BB, especially on incline press. Also those are good curling numbers bud

    Charged up and ready to roll for todays workout. Crushed a chest session not to long ago and still feeling nice and pumped! Flooded the muscle with tons of carbs and after I write this up...back to wrapping some presents!
    No morning cardio and today was a DC type strength day for Chest.

    Warmed up as usual with my everyday shoulder movements, then rolled into some dynamic and ballistic stretching to really warm the muscle up nicely. I always spend a decent amount of time stretching, but when it comes to a day where I'll be handling heavier than normal loads, I definitely spend more time than normal.

    Smith Decline BB - all warmup sets leading up to 1 workset
    135lbs - 12reps 185lbs - 9reps 225lbs - 6repsx3 - at this point my chest had a pretty good pump and everything felt nice and loosened up
    345lbs - 5reps RP 4reps RP 3reps

    After giving everything I had into that final set, I was fried and didn't have much left in the tank, but the show must go on

    Low Incline DB - all done with a pause press style - 70lbs - 9reps 85lbs - 8reps 95lbs - 8reps w/a little spot at the end and stopped short of failure

    Weighted Machine Dips - 170lbs - 13reps 230lbs - 9reps 270lbs - 7reps stopped short of failure

    Flat DB Fly - 55lbs - 8reps 65lbs - 7reps 75lbs - 5reps finishing on the neg

    DB Pullover - 75lbs - 8reps taking it slow and deep to stretch everything out 105lbs - 6reps

    Finished up with 15min of Liss on the tread and we now have another Chest session in the books!

    Added 200cals to the diet yesterday and am going to keep a close eye on things. Going to keep the diet/gains at this pace and fine tune as needed as I keep moving upwards!

    Happy Holidays to everyone from the East Coast!
