    So i was extremely pissed and disappointed with how I did in the gym today. So, I did some hypertrophy work to push my body to the absolute limit because it didn't want to work during sheiko.

    Bench Superset with DB Hammer Curls Superset with DB Side Raises
    4 sets @ 135 lbs x 10 reps | 4 sets @ 20 lbs x 10 reps | 4 sets @ 10 lbs x 10 reps

    i had nothing left leaving the gym. from the high rep work my upper body was really pumped and veiny. still not pleased with maxxing tonight.

  14. Nice strength gains over the past few weeks. And def good idea to add the shrugs for your traps. What is your diet like, just expected more wt gain with that type of strength gain. You are very lean so the mass will def stand out.

    Even with a diet to lean out (not cut) I was gaining .5-1.0 pounds/week.

    Keep up the great work.

    thanks bud. adding shrugs: kudos to metroba (thanks,bud)

    my diet situation goes a little like this:
    up until a few days ago, i was taking my sweet time eating food during meals, and i was only able to finish about a plateful of food, usually meat, a carb dish, and some veggies, along with two glasses of milk.

    i've since started the "shovel food in your mouth" method of eating, and have been able to down usually two full plates of food and two glasses of 2% milk.

    hopefully, in a few weeks, i'll be able to start putting on the .5-1.0 pounds/week, as i need around 4,000-5,000 calories (estimated, based on metabolism) to gain any weight.

  16. Thats what I have to do to gain . . . shovel it in! 2 chicken breasts, cup of brown rice, veggies. It is tought to eat that much being 160, but its the only way to get it done.

    yea i'm only 140, an ectomorph, so it's always been hard for me to gain.

    -----------------------------------
    Squat:
    1 set @ 135 lbs x 3 reps
    1 set @ 165 lbs x 3 reps
    1 set @ 185 lbs x 3 reps
    1 set @ 205 lbs x 3 reps
    1 set @ 225 lbs x 2 reps

    Bench:
    1 set @ 135 lbs x 5 reps
    1 set @ 165 lbs x 5 reps
    1 set @ 195 lbs x 3 reps
    1 set @ 215 lbs x 1 rep <-- PR!
    1 set @ 220 lbs x 0 reps (missed)

    Face Pulls:
    1 set @ 25 lbs x 10 reps
    1 set @ 30 lbs x 10 reps
    1 set @ 35 lbs x 10 reps
    1 set @ 50 lbs x 10 reps
    1 set @ 65 lbs x 5 reps
    1 set @ 30 lbs x 10 reps

  20. So here are my current maxes on the three "main" lifts:

    All are raw except where noted:
    Bench: 215 lbs
    Deadlift: 295 lbs --> using straps, probably 275 without
    Squat: 245 lbs

    My goal: 885 lbs combined
    I need: 130 lbs spread between the three

    My goals for the end of sheiko 37, which is the end of next week:
    Bench: 225 lbs
    Squat: 275 lbs (seems lofty, but 245 felt pretty easy last i did it)
    Deadlift: 315 lbs

    Needed after these goals: 70 lbs

    So now I ask, where would I be best suited to distribute these remaining 70 lbs amongst the three lifts?

  21. Impressive lifts as always man! Bro, you being an ectomorph is not a curse..trust me on that one. You will stay lean and ripped no matter what! Yes, you do need to eat a lot more to gain and with your metabolism you would put everything to muscle anyway. I would reccomend you get on AP or Pslin to get that appetite ramped up. You def be able to get in more food and better utilize it. Make sure you protein intake is high man as well as carb intake.
