    New and Improve :)


    Alright guys this time i am going to follow through on this 1, the last one was kinda towards the end of my routine and it lasted for just a couple more weeks. but i started a new program this monday and it is truly working! im hurting all over! well since the new program i started this week is working just want to state that it is the G.V.T. program. If others aren't familiar with G.V.T. its German Volume Training. My work out consists of 5x5 and they are supersets. After each set, i rest for just a 60 sec.

    Nutrition and supplements wise have been sorta of the same, but kinda changed a few a things up, no longer taking M-stak, and no longer taking N.O. but still on amp creatine, still taking BCAA, and high carb protein. looking still to take another pump though and i ordered some Anabolic pump, going to take that next week. Food wise has been the same, just cutting a little bit of calories trying to lower some body fat. Food wise consist of tuna, salmon, chicken, sirloins, egg whites, natty p-nut wit toasts, some pasta and variations of nuts. Looking to be more strict on my diet so i can see vast results, was pretty lenient during my mass build i really didnt mind, BUT trying to really focus on the dieting here .

    Training

    Monday: Chest and Back

    DB Bench--115 6x flies--60 6x (maintained for 3 sets, dropped weight to 110 for press to keep it clean for the last 2 sets, maintained weight for flies though for all 5 sets.)

    Incline press-- 95 6x Incline flies--60 6x (did all for 5 sets)

    Barbell Rows-- 235 6x DB Rows--80 6x (last set did 5 total on both but were unclean)

    Lat pulldown--210 6x Standing Pulldown-- 180 6x (all clean, going go up in weight)

    NOTE: i did 6 reps just because i felt that i could do extra reps to modify it for my body, but i feel that im going to drop back down to 5 reps for it to equal a total of 100 reps.


    **height--5'8 weight, will have official weight on friday, body fat will have hopefully, but this weekend. **

    Wednesday: Legs

    Squat--275 5x DB Lounges-- 70 5x (struggled to do all 5 reps on the last 2 sets, but last set only could only muster 3x clean, squatting wise, was a good lifting weight but could of went up, going to next week. I'm going to try and maintain weight for lounges though)

    Hamstring Curls-- started at 135 and ended on my last set at 180 (got 4 clean but total of 5) ; going to maintain weight at 170 and see how many i could bust out from there.
    Leg Extensions-- started at 135 and ended my set at 270 5x clean, going to maintain weight at 270 next time i do my legs.

    45 Calf Raises--135 5x Standing Calf Raises--150 5x (could of definately done heavier weight but my quads were on FIRE!! and i was so exhausted so i got a good work out on my calves but could of definately gone up in weight tend to do it next week.)

    ** A lot of the weight so far was a good working weight but some others could of gone up, this is just all i guess a trial and error and see where i could maintain, definately already feeling it though. **

    comments and any kind of help or motivation would be great guys, thank you all for reading, next log will be on Friday! hope all will read and comment.

    hmmm well i was planning on writing my workout from yesterday...yesterday BUT i got really busy (well watching bball) and then i started to work on some damn java, and i HATE java! it is seriously kicking my ass! and i HATE all the nerdy ppl in my class bc they find it so damn easy! and im strugglin SO HARD! BUT anyways, i plan on studying more on it and hopefully i can pull of a decent grade out of it before semester is over. yesterday was a very eventful day for me! when grocery shopping haha then from there went to the gym! FINALLY went by myself for the first time in a long time and it felt great! i had a great workout, and i had sucha great drive throughout the whole workout!

    Saturday: Shoulders, cardio

    side lateral raises--warm up 25, 35, 15x, 12x
    1- 80s 5x (maintained through out all 5 sets, last set had a spot got 3 clean but struggled to get last 2 AND was VERY fatigued from trying to flip it over my shoulders that could of been why i struggled hard!)
    1- 45s 5x (maintained through out all 5 sets, pretty clean in the last 2 sets)

    military press--1- 135 (pretty light but was really fatigued from last workout and so i maintained there and will definately jump up to 185 and so how well i go from there) bentover lateral raises--1-40 (maintained weight and will go up 5 lbs next week)

    cardio-- didn't exert to much energy on this but, did highest incline walk, on treadmill for 5 mins, haha i felt a good burn in the calves. Was going to do abs, but my abs were SO sore from yesterday ab work out and wanted them to rest up for monday.

    hahah thanks man, glad to hear that you are following this, if i could recommend something that you could use to help with your shoulders, if you threw in some military press that'll help a lot, but if you dont like the tension on your joints if you use a smith machine, that'll help as well. its great lift to get strength in your shoulders. but thanks again man.
