Coorslight HIT training log
Switching to HIT for the next good while. Full body workouts performed no more than once every 3 days. I'm currently on week #4, each section is segmented into 6 wk training blocks followed by a full 7-9 day layoff from gym altogether. Each rep is performed with a 4 second negative and 2-3 second positive
Here is my first phase lifts so far at week #4, listed in order of current workout
1- leg extension- 210 lbs X 15 reps
2- lying leg curls- 175 lbs X 15 reps
3- barbell squat- 435 lbs X 12 reps (ass to heels)
4- seated calve press machine (seated pushing calves straight out) 6 plates/side x 28 reps
5- bent arm pullovers w/ ez curl bar narrow grip - 135 lbs x 11 reps
6- Incline bench press- 275 lbs x 13 reps (12 all me, help on #13)
7- 1 arm tricep dumbbell extensions- 40 lbs x 13 reps/arm, slow and controlled
8- bent over barbell row/underhand grip- 235 x 15 reps, slow and controlled, 90 degree bent over row
9-biceps dumbell curls (both arms at same time) 40 lb db's x 16 reps(13 good form, + 3 cheat reps)
10- situps on floor- 50 reps
Current cycle is- 525 mg/wk test, blend of prop, iso, enanthate
- 600 mg/wk tren enanthate
- 50 mg/dbol on workout days only
I've been on cycle for almost 6 wks now, I'm dropping the tren to 300 mg/wk instead of 600 and going another 6 wks with it (insomnia too bad, piss too dark colored, anxiety) I'm dropping my dbol altogether as its been 6 wks and would like to lose some of the water weight, keeping test where its add, but adding in some aromasyn real soon when I get some extra money to order it, probably in 1 wk or so. so far gains are good, lots of energy in the gym. Running the dbol w/ tren was a terrible idea and I've felt like absolute crap this run. Never again, and wouldnt suggest anybody else do it either unless they want to feel like garbage. Looking forward to cutting the tren in half so I can finally get some decent sleep and quit feeling like a bitch with hot flashes. Also, workouts are really good, but getting a little boring. I look really forward to switching things up a little after these last 2 wks in phase 1 of the training. Would like to lose a little fluid and lean up as I continue to progress through this HIT journey. Thats all for now, Coors

In for this!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

Today, another plateau smasher!! I really wasn't hyped for the gym today, the workouts are getting pretty routine in order and its been the exact same pattern for past month, but WTF I'm gaining so why deviate? Here were todays numbers
1- leg ext- 215/15
2- leg curl- (only 90x15, different gym,totally different machine, this was plate loaded)
3- SQUATS- 445/13 REPS, 10 lb jump since 3 days ago, fell to the ****ing floor afer I racked the bar, breathing harder than hell but smashed through some gains!!
4- calve raise- standing, again different gym, old school machine with belt around my waist w/ resistance, I stacked it at 250 lbs for some ridiculous # of reps, slow and controlled, I quit counting who knows
5- bent arm pullovers- 135 x 15 reps, 3 or 4 reps more than last workout, GAIN
6- incline bench press- took it to 285 this workout, a 10 lb increase since 3 days ago. banged out 10 reps, 8 good ones on my own with 4 sec negatives, 2 w/ help. So we will stay at no more than 285 until I can hit 12 reps w/ it
7- 1 arm tri db extensions- 40 lb/arm x 12 reps each (11 on my own, 1 self spotted) no gain here so stay at 40 lb next time too
8- bent over underhand rows- 240 lbs x 16 reps, 90 degree row, slow and controlled. So 5 lb jump and 1 extra rep than last workout
9- db bicep curls (both arms at same time) 45 lb dumbbells x 20 reps!! (16 solid reps, rest pause, + 2 more, Rest pause + 2 more
10- 50 crunches, DONE!!
Great lifts, motivation through the roof once again. Just keep gaining on this ****, no reason to stop!! photos to come, until next time, peace

Recovery getting difficult now, the day after my workouts I'm pretty much out of commission for much. 2 days later I start coming around again but its getting harder and harder. I have also found myself eating a little "dirtier" lately but without quick weight gain from it. I feel pretty run down today, I have 2 more wks of this first phase of HIT, and then I change things a little bit, and also include a NTF day (Not to failure) to further help with recovery, which at this point I'm looking real forward to. My guess is within the next 6-8 wks my squat will be 500/10, and incline bench 315/12

Usually about 45 min- 1 hr long. I try to make my rest breaks only long enough to set up for my next exercise, but sometimes after the squats I end up having to take an extra minute or so b/ it feels like my heart is going to explode!! I wish sometimes I were in a less crowded gym and I could go around setting everything up so it was ready when I got to it.

Decided to take today off from training and give it one more days rest, I didnt sleep good at all last night, maybe 3 hrs at best. This 600mg/wk of tren is killing me, insomnia like ****ing crazy!! Backing down to 300 mg/wk starting today, and will run it out another 6 wks. Yea yea, I know, 12 wks of tren is a lot. But I might as well kick this last vial because it'll do me no darn good after this, and I doubt I'll run tren again anytime soon. I picked up some livercure today and will hit that the next month to try and repair any damage the dbol may have caused.
At this point I'm going to get my next compound stack ready to go, so when the test and tren is over in 6 more wks I will switch to 300 mg/wk primo and HRT dose test for a good while, probably 15-20 wks or so. I'd like to grab a couple kits of Hygetropin and run 2iu/day for the next 20 wks but it'll depend on money. Really leaning towards a decent long term plan, 20 wks or so. Kind of tired of the up and down, highs and lows, and stress of the harsher compounds.
I'll pick up tommorrow in gym after a decent nights sleep hopefully. This will make only my 4th workout in a 14 day time frame.

yesterday was a good day taking that extra day off really helped. I'm currently at 220 lbs x 15 reps on leg extensions, i switched from free weight barbell squats to a squat machine with same motion but pads over ur shoulders, I did 6 plates/side for 12 reps all the way down. I also did flat bench yesterday instead of incline, I had to change a few things to help with the boredom factor from doing exact same **** in exact same order each workout for past month. Flat bench 275/15 reps like it wasnt ****, would have had 16 reps except for the fact I had one of those moron spotters who lets you practically die under the damn bar before he helps you.

Well its my 5th day in a row eating clean now, or dieting so to speak. My current bodyweight is 234 lbs with abs. Glutes and calves extremely sore from 2 days ago, took today off from weights and just did a brisk walk for 2.5 miles around the track. Everybody is noticing changes in my physique now, they are all telling me the same thing. I'm not only bigger, but harder as well. Its been almost 5 wks into the routine, at this point I doubt I'll ever go back to a traditional style routine or high volume. I'm making changes too fast to switch what I'm doing. My next day in the gym will be on Sunday, so this will make 4 days off from weight training. I started taking Lipolyze fat burner by Species nutrition, its my 4th day on it, it seems to be working already and has my body heated up pretty good. Like I said before, I will switch off to primobolan, HRT dose test in about the next 5 wks or so and run the primo a solid 20 wks. Time to go eat

I'm with ya bro, I have always had this idea in my mind that if I wasn't exercising at least 3-4 days/wk then I wouldn't burn off enough cals to keep from getting fat. Funny thing, its been the opposite!! And I dont need to eat so damn much either, I can eat like 3,000 cals/day and go in there and make faster gains than when I was eating twice as much. Its recovery man, recovery has been my missing link the whole time!! My chest is whats taking off the most, the shoulders and chest finally have time to rest and not be counterproductive from either one or the other not being fully recovered.

I worked out again tonight, after a full 2 days off. More plateaus shattered!! Leg extension got taken up to 225 lbs x 15 reps, however these were slower reps, so slower AND heavier this time. Squat machine was 6 plates/side + 5/side, for 15 reps, so 10 lb jump AND 3 extra reps. 5 lb increase on incline bench, did 280/12, needed a little help on last 2 reps though, I will stay at 280 until I get all 12 on my own w/ 4 second negatives. Did an additional 10 lbs on EZ bar curls, 100 lb EZ curl bar x 12 reps, good and slow. plus 20 lbs on lat pulldowns, so 180/15 reps no wrist straps and slow. After eating clean for 7 days straight I decided to go get a pizza post workout, God it felt great!! pizza and a huge glass of apple juice, I was in heaven!! I think this Lipolyze fat burner is working pretty good too, my body seems to stay pretty hot. Also very pleased that I was able to cut my dosages down and still continue to gain strength, that 600mg/wk tren was just too ****ing much, totally not necessary to go that high, 300 mg/wk max, actually 75mg 3x/wk is plenty to do what you need to. I weighed myself tonight, I'm 236.2 lbs with pants and tank top. I'm not as lean as I'd like to be, but I'm really just trying to get as lean as I can but still stay in that bf% range to get stronger and bigger. I'd like to get under 9-10% if I can. Here are a couple pics as of tonight just to show you guys where I'm currently at. My arms measure 18 1/2" cold, waistline is 35", legs around 28-29", calves are 19". Chest, not sure, probably close to 50". Until next time...

awesome results bro. I will starting an almost identical routine tomorrow. I just took about 12 days off from lifting to let my joints and tendons heal up a bit and im chomping at the bit to get started tomorrow. Really glad to see this is working as I was skeptical after reading this book i just bought on HIT. Im like, u mean i only have to lift 3 days a weeks and only do 10-12 exercises with only 1 set and Ill grow lol? Hopefully my results will be similar to yours however Im currently 3 weeks into PCT and I feel like im small and weak. lol gotta love the test the dbol

Welp so today was the first day. Did 12 exercises total. Some I did and additional set because Im still programmed that way. **** bro. By the 5th exercise my hands are shaking, breathing heavy as hell, about to puke any minute. Never did tho. Basically crawled my way out of the gym. Legs felt like they were gonna collapse at any minute lol. Its a small gym so I wasnt able to go from one thing to the next like a wanted but the longest break between exercises was about 2 mins so not too bad. When i first read the book and saw that you only have to do a few exercises and only 2-3 days a week, i called bull****. I didnt feel the pumps that Im accustomed too but i can tell i put my body and CNS thru hell today. I mean just slowing the reps down and holding the squeeze and the peak makes alot of difference. I was doing like a 4 sec positive and 4 second negative. Usually by the 8th rep i could feel my mind starting to go lol. I had to really push to get 12 reps and on some I just couldnt. This will be interesting to say the least but if i can grow, get stronger and spend less time in the gym then im all for it. Your right about getting bored, im so used to lifting 5 days a week, wth will I do with all this free time?? Oh yeah rest and heal lol
04-25-2011, 09:27 PM
Hey Coors so do you just do 1 set for each exercise as well? I've been doing 1 huge drop set for each exercise but now i'm thinking if i just go absolutely crazy for one set that it might be enough? I might just do it anyways to get my recovery to top notch because i really really don't want to take a week off.
I'm making progress too but i'm always wondering if i could make it better....

Hopefully i'll achieve a 400 squat of my own sometime soon.
04-27-2011, 02:50 PM
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!

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!!

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?
