    Grip-N-Rip with STI


    Hey guys. I am going to finally keep my training log here. I am going to be using EST products since I have had great success with the products and I would like to share with you all.

    Stats:
    22 yr old
    165 lb
    5'6"


    I have been a PL most of my training years and my best lifts are all raw.
    Bench: 320
    Squat: 400
    Deadlift: 480

    Now I want to add some mass on and have been speaking to close friend of mine, which A LOT of you know but would rather not mention his name, to help guide me through DC Training. My diet is also being taken care off by Alex Azarian. AWESOME Guy!

    I will back track a few days first.

    Going to start logging my training on here as it keeps me motivated and gives everyone a chance to chime in and give suggestions.

    Here I go, giving DC a try out:


    1A
    Incline DB Press
    80 x 10 + 6 + 5

    Pec Dec
    105 x 20

    Hammer Strength
    140 x 13 + 7 + 6

    V-Bar Pushdowns

    Wide Grip Pulldowns
    140 x 8 + 6 + 6

    Deadlifts
    325x6
    275x12


    Today was a great workout. Although I am not focusing on the amount of weight I am lifting, I am focusing on feeling the muscle being worked and concentrating on my techniques and forms on all exercises.

    Last night I headed back to my home town to visit the lady and also some family but nothing was going to stop me from missing a training session. I went back to my roots to the hardcare powerlifting gym and I loved it. Even though I had to urge to powerlift today, I stuck with my DC routine and had a great workout.

    I forgot my booklet that I log my workouts in, so I had to try to do my best with the past lifts I had 3 workouts ago and also with some different equipment.

    1B

    Preworkout:
    EST Methyl Mass 10 min prior work and during work out.

    I am loving the MethylMass. Only preworkout that doesn't give me a crash.

    DB Curls
    LT: 45 x 10 + 6 + 4
    TT: 60 x 7 x 4 x 3

    Reverse Curls
    LT: 95 x 10
    TT: 80 x 12

    Standing Calves
    8 x 13

    Seated Leg Curls
    90 x 12 + 7 + 6

    Squats
    LT: 275x7 ,185x20
    TT: 295x9, 195x20

    Post workout: Met-Rx Protien Plus RTD 51 Frosty Chocolate (not bad)

    Preworkout: 2 scoops EST MethylMass

    Flat DB Press
    LT : 90 x 10 + 5 + 4 = 19
    TT: 95 x 10 + 6 + 4 = 20

    Pec Dec
    LT: 105 x20
    TT: 120 x 20

    Seated Military
    LT: 145 x 10 + 6 + 2 = 18
    TT: 145 x 9 + 5 + 4 = 18

    Floor Skulls
    85 x 11 + 6 + 5 = 22

    HS Pulldowns
    LT: 4p x 12 + 7 + 6 = 25
    TT: 4p x 14 + 8 + 6 = 28

    BB Rows
    LT:185 x 11
    TT: 185 x 11

    Overall it was a productive workout. I switch from doing skull crusher on the bench to the floor. The floor gives NONE and is much better when focusing on feeling the weight. I noticed that you have to keep you elbow further back in order for the weight on the EZ bar to touch the ground, which in return puts more pressure and force on my triceps. This is going to work great. Reps got VERY hard to lock out.

    Postworkout: 6 oz 93/7 ground beef and 3 oz of rice

    Cant wait until next week to start eating like a freak again.

    *This is one of the most productive workouts I have ever done in the amount of time to took me. It usually takes me about 1.5 hours to finish but since I have started this workout stack I am out of the gym in 1 hour and my strength is better, if anything. Awesome pump and I can def. feel the muscles worked in my back.

    *All of my weights, I focus on the movement and feeling the muscle being worked. Not worried about the amount of weight I am lifting but just how hard the muscle is worked.

    Well I am listening to my body and it is telling me that I am not ready for DC. So I am going back to the orignal 3-way split, 4 days a week

    Legs
    Back/Biceps
    Chest/Shoulders/Triceps

    Today

    Preworkout: 45 min preworkout- 6 caps Plasmatic and 1 scoop MethylMass 20 min pre workout.
    I was jacked by the time I walked into the gym. With this training, I am still going to focus on feeling the muscle being worked and not concerned about the amount of weight be lifted. Being I used to powerlift, this is VERY hard for me to do.

    Squats
    135x15
    185x10
    225x8
    275x8
    285x6, 225 x 20

    Leg Press
    2px 15
    4px15
    6px10
    8px10
    10px8

    Leg Curls
    60x15
    75x15
    90x12
    105x8

    Leg Extensions
    60x15
    90x12
    105x12
    120x11
    135x9

    Seated Calve Raises
    90x15
    90x12
    90x11
    115x7

    *The situation with leg ext. was confusing. When I would increase the weight, I never thought I could get another rep. But something was inside of me was telling me to go for another one! Love this workout stack!!
