Coorslight HIT training log

Page 2 of 5 First 1234 ... Last

  1. So i switched to just 1 all out set per exercise and i MURDERED my previous lifts!!! Incline bench went up 20lbs with around the same reps and decline bench went up 30lbs!! with the same reps. EVERYTHING went up and the one thing that shocked me the most was the rope pushdowns with tear apart on the bottom. Last week i had 45lbs / 7 reps and this week i did 45lbs / 20 reps almost EFFORTLESSLY WITH a negative at the end! I finished in around the same amount of time i gave myself a little more rest between sets and it DEFINITELY paid off! I'm so excited right now i'm not sure if it's due to the crazy drop sets i did but i'm just gonna see how this goes for a month or so!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me


  2. UPDATE- well this makes the end of the first 6 wk phase of HIT. my best freind and old time workout partner flew in to visit, have not seen him in almost 2 yrs. I diverted just a little from my program to accomodate lifting with him and working around a couple injuries he has. Bascially we trained our entire body in 2 days, so i did go 2 days in a row, but WTF its my best friend who I haven't seen in so long and it was more so just to spend time in the gym together. Anyways, I didnt realize how powerful I had gotten until going back to a more traditional routine. (although I did not do quite as many sets as he did, incline db press just 1 set and a static hold) but it was ridiculous. Keep in mind I had taken 4 full days off before training with him, but I was just simply playing around with **** he was struggling with. And this is a guy who has always been neck and neck with me if not stronger in most lifts. When he first saw me he was like "GOD DAMN you got f'in huuuggggee!!" so that was cool to hear. Everybody in that gym is saying stuff now "Are you doing a show? What are you doing? Your looking bigger everytime you come in here, Man, I've never seen you THIS big with definition" This **** is working, its working profoundly well!! I'm not necessarily gaining rapid weight, but my body is recompositioning itself and getting denser. I think I'm losing some fat at the same time. I started taking that Lipolyze by Species nutrition, seems to be working well. I'm down roughly 4 lbs in the past 2 wks so far, currently 233.4 lbs mid day. So now its time for 1 full week off from weights, I will hit cardio still 3-4x, but absolutely no weight training for 1 wk, then getting into phase 2 of my routine for the next 6 wks. I'm sitting here having a few beers, going to go out for some pizza with my friend and his wife Saturday since its his last night in town. Going to try and get some things done around my house and not even think about weights for the next 7 days. Time to relax before phase 2. Anyways, here is a quick pic from tonight. I'm not super lean yet, but marked improvement. Until next week, Coors!!

    Sounds great bro!! Keep going like this with 1 all out set until you can no longer surpass your lifts with good,slow form. So far its been 6 wks for me, and I have made progress every single workout. No more good days or bad, I constantly improve. Keep it up bro, let me know how things go for ya. Hell, feel free to chime in on your updates in this thread as well. That goes for anybody doing HIT training.

    Will do! So far this is feeling like the best way to train so far and i really don't see a reason that it will change. Maybe at one point i may need another set or so but it's so simple and basic that you start with the least and there's only one way to go if progress stops! Or possibly a recover week (those are so hard for me i love training) I'll definitely keep you all up on how HIT is working. I'm glad i ran into this as i was contemplating AAS or PH's (Probably still will in the future) but now i have a good solid training style to help me keep progressing. I've always put in the work in the effort and dedication, i just did it in the wrong way without recovery. Let us know how your training goes after your week off!

  5. BTW coorlights, I read the same book you read on this and its what got me wanting to try it. You do look pretty damn big from that pic, if I could ever just get to 200lbs id be happy but I can never seem to break the 180 mark. Ill get up to it then drop 3-4 lbs for no reason. Maybe i should focus on being a lean cut up 175lb. Genetics i guess? Anyway your results are amazing and the enthusiasm is really what i needed to see. This is sooo totally against what everyone in my gym does. But hey then again, Im the only guy doing deadlifts in my gym too. Bunch of mirror watching pretty boys cant handle the hard heavy lifting lol. Today marks my 3rd day on the program and im ready to get in there. Ive been following in the beginners routine 1 listed in the book. I may start adding some cardio in on lifting days just to try and tighten up a bit. Ive done zero cardio in the past 4-5 months but ive been lifting lift an 1 1/2hrs 5 days a week and was just too zapped to do cardio. Btw, not to be nosey but are you on cycle right now?

    Yes I am on right now, but I cut my tren in half and my total wkly mg's is 800mg/wk between test and tren. Lifts going up despite cutting tren amount in half. Of course the gear will make you a little stronger, but I believe its only about 5% of the equation

  7. Cool bro. Im on my 4th week of pct right now. Feeling like **** and weak as hell. Cant wait to jump back on in couple months. Im thinking about trying out a tri-blend of 100mg primo/100mg tren a/100mg masteron and some test c at 600mg a week. The tri im thinkin of pinning 3x a week. Kinda up in the air on that right now. I think i could get some lean gains off that and it not be too harsh on sides. Got my workout over in about 40 mins today. Didnt get too queasy either. So either im starting to acclimate to it some or I didnt lift hard enough lol

  8. To be honest i'm thinking of doing a cycle this winter with a D-bol only cycle for 4-6 weeks with possibly an AI and definitely nolva ran through the whole cycle. PCT is confusing the hell out of me i need to do more research but i plan to start on 5mg/ed and move up as long as i don't feel any serious sides. I drink TONS of water so with the that and liv support i think i'll be good but i may even change my mind about this, We'll just have to see when winter rolls around!

    Sounds like a damn good blend bro!! I'm basically on something year round, even if its just TRT. When my run is over with in the next 4 wks or so I will start my primo at 300/wk for 20 wks, along with 250/test e every 10 days. somewhere in the mix I'm going to throw in some vars, but definitely keeping things low but steady for 20 wks. I need the break and primo will be mild enough to keep me leveled out. I hear people say all the time that primo is worthless at only 300mg/wk, but anybody who really knows their **** about real primo says otherwise. I know 300/wk is low, but I think with a sound diet it would stil be enough to keep some quality

  10. Well i just got done training legs and all of my lifts progressed except leg extensions, I think it might have been just due to me going heavier on squats? Does this happen to you coors? I gave myself enough time to rest but i accidently threw on another 45 on the leg extension machine instead of putting the right amount. -_- I'm kind of pissed i misjudged and got excited but i did throw 30lbs on the squat so i should be happy. I just want to give 100% and that one set threw me off a little. Either way I've NEVER squatted this much EVER (even quarter squats, Don't ask :S) And both my legs are pretty wiped out right now. Is even one improved set still progress? (Dumb question!)

  11. i take smaller bites when adding the weight. usually 5 lb increases on bench, and 10 lb increases on legs. i wouldnt wory as much about major jumps in stuff like curs or leg extensions, your biggest increases are going to be on things like squats and bench press

    Well yeah i wanted to add like 10lbs on the leg extension i just didn't think it through at all when i tossed a 45 on.

  13. I know a few weeks ago I was using 190lbs on leg curls for like 10 reps but I was blasting through them. Now Ive had to go down to 130lbs in order to get the slow reps and squeeze to 12 reps. And honestly but the 8th rep Im really starting to struggle. It takes all the focus and willpower I have to get them all. Kinda sucks that I had to go down in weight but at the end of the day I dont think it really matters. Its not like anyone is there monitoring my weight anyway. Its all in my head. I had a good week and I think Ive finally talked my buddy into trying it with me. Hopefully so. We always have a good workout together but hes been on a different shift and we havent lifted together in about a month. Maybe this week we can get back in the groove and kill that ****!

  14. MACHINE, I'm a ****ing machine now. So I really tried to take a full week off, I got to 4 days off, but I felt so good and fully recovered I attacked another workout today. The progress just keeps coming, in 7 wks I have progressed every single consecutive workout!! And funny how the most compliments I've had on my physique is of the past 7 wks since doing this routine. Today was just insane!! I went back to flat bench press in which I made a 10 lb jump for only 1 rep short of what i got with 275/15, I did 285/14 today, only the reps were even slower!! So huuugeee jump considering that factor!! Hit the squat machine today, and not only a 10 lb gain, but 5 extra reps, making it 6 plates/side and a 10/side for 20 reps!! Last time it was 10 lbs less for 15 reps. I thought i was gonna die though, I almost puked for real. I jumped 10 lbs on ez bar curls making it 110/12 good strict reps, squeezing the hell out of every rep like I'm flexing my biceps to show someone. I jumped 20 lbs on lat pulldowns, making it 200/15 (last few reps a little heave to them though) no wrist straps. The routines are getting rough now, its like ****ing war in there, but damn if I'm not gaining EVERY SINGLE LIFTING DAY!! I will absolutely never divert back to volume, I have never made gains like this in all my years of training, even as a beginner. This program has set a new standard for how far I can take my physique, I feel like even without any gear I could make gains faster from this than traditional bodybuilding on juice. insane is all I have to say. kicking myself in the ass for not doing this years ago!!

    Hell yeah! That's just inspiring man i'm really looking forward to training tomorrow!

    I've been experiencing great progress as well and i'm going on my 3rd week. The funny thing is i'm on a cutting diet right now as well and my strength continues to shoot up! I really really really want to start a bulk diet again i'm positive as soon as i shoot my calories up after this cut that i'll blow up. The strength gains alone tell it all! ESPECIALLY for you! I here people trash talking HIT but honestly i can GUARANTEE you they are *****footing around and not challenging themselves. What we are doing is going in the gym and making that one set absolutely crazy and I've never been so satisfied with a training style than this. I plan on running my first Prohormone in a few months (Hdrol) with HIT and High calorie diet. I expect nothing but good things from HIT and will probably continue it forever with the exception of some small modifications like forced reps and such in the future.

    nice bro!! And your exactly right, seems like whether I'm eating or on a caloric deficit, whether I sleep good or dont, doesnt matter. The progress just keeps coming!

    The ONLY thing i dislike about HIT is that i can't train as much as i'd like to The progress is WELL worth it i just love the aspect of training hard. I wish i could completely recover after 1 day so i could just train 1on/1off forever! haha

  18. the next day after training I'm completely out of commission. I mean I'm so run down from training my reflexes and brain processes fuzzy and slow, no possible way I could train

    I hear ya on that! I just got back from training Chest/Shoulders/Triceps and nothing but PR's! A lot of people will shun me but the smith machine is boss for me it makes it so i ONLY focus on the contraction and my chest is starting to explode again! It literally felt like my upper chest was choking me when i'd do over head stretching. I used to train really heavy initially and i'm 99% sure that's where i got all my growth from. Heavy training even cheat training does me wonders for some reason. I keep the reps relatively controlled but i let my body do a natural movement and don't do anything that feels awkward on my joints/muscles. Today was the strongest I've ever been so i'm expecting some more ridiculous growth! I hit laterals with a slight bend in the elbow with 55lb dumbbells for 19 reps today with a small swing. That may sound kind of crazy but i am 6' 4" medium sized frame. When i go super strict on them i get all kinds of annoying pain in my rotator cuff the next morning so i'm happy for now! I plan on reverting to seated lateral raises when i can't progress on standing so i can control them more. My aim right now is overall mass. I think people in my gym are hating me because of my progress, they kind of avoid talking to me now.

    people will talk bro!! Same thing happening with me, they've noticed changes in my physique so fast I kind of get that look like "WTF is he doing!!"

    Haha that's awesome! I tell anyone who asks about it that it's not about how long you workout it's about how hard you workout then leave. I'll keep you updated on my progress hopefully this will help sway people in the direction of high intensity workouts.

    Another workout. This one was cut a little short due to the fact I'm getting over some congestion and sinus bull****, my chest feels tighter than hell and I cant breathe worth a damn. So I left out legs and just trained upper body. Still made progress despite being congested and also I've been eating much cleaner and below maintenance levels cals. I'm trying to get a little more defined before vacation in the next 6 wks. I went up 10 lbs on incline bench press today, making it 290 lbs for 11 reps. I will stay at 290 until I can get at least 12 reps with it. Either way, a 10 lb jump for only 1 rep short of my goal. I completed 15 reps today with 110 lb ez bar curls, same weight as last time but 3 extra reps. Went up 15 lbs on straight arm pulldowns for my serratus, making it 100 lbs for 17 reps. All in all, good lift considering the **** I've dealt with, and no sleep last night. peace fellaz

    Awesome job! Making progress while you sick is REALLY good. I entered that "Primordial Performance 4 week Contest" gonna gun to get this cut done and over within the next 4 weeks! Then it's time to gain again haha

    Thanks bro. You know whats funny? When your reading about the program you think its just not enough, but then when your really into the routines I believe that everything such as the "Not to failure day" and the week off after 6 wks of training is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. I'm making gains like crazy, but to go in there and give it 110%, and then 3 days later give it another 110% and beat every last workout, that **** gets rough!! I've been going 7 wks strong now, so its been roughly 15-20 workouts so far and I've progressed on every single one. But every one gets harder and harder and beats the **** out of me more and more.

    I wish you luck in ur contest bro, which products are you using?

    I agree haha, I'm starting to really have to dig deep to get more reps or heavier weight. I was going to try 2 sets for squats but today i got to a weight that after i did one set i was just done there was nothing left, I tried getting under the bar again and i looked like a drunk guy for a second so i racked it and moved on.
    Thanks! Well i'm using protein/glutamine/creatine that's pretty much it. Although i am seriously considering a prohormone soon and if i win the contest i'll have a really good product to give a shot. I really have a good solid understanding now of how a cycle works and i'm getting a lot more comfortable with how things work the more and more i read.
