    Pic's!
    First is 2 weeks ago on 6/4/11
    Next was today
    Not really expecting a drastic difference but i didn't realize the lighting was also different so for the sake of accuracy i'll make sure i take almost the same pic/pose every 2 weeks.

    I'm also gonna go out on a limb and say that Full range didn't really do anything for me except maybe even make me regress. Here is a pic just before i started using full range, I was still using HIT sets principles but with my ROM and i was getting into some pretty heavy weight which is why i got scared into full range but what really needs tweaking is tempo and exercise execution. At this point i was doing pressing movements down until my arms were in a right angle. It might also be the lighting and the fact that i had more fat on me but who knows. I think my best option at this point is to use what worked before and tweak it with slower controlled reps and better form setup, I'm extremely confident this will work very well!

    **EDIT** Upon looking at another set of pic's before/after HIT and Full Range reps i see a noticeable difference in the chest. HIT actually helped me out a good amount to recover kind of like a "deload" month but as soon as full range was thrown in that month my chest looks noticeably smaller. This change happened BEFORE i started grinding down on diet/cardio so i don't believe it's caused by dieting/fat loss so much. Good thing i looked it up!
    Also goes to show you that the "Guidelines" to lift weights are specific to individuals and shouldn't be overly emphasized/justified to everyone. I can see it being a good way to learn the movement of the exercise that's about it for me.

    Diet Breakdown 6/18/11
    (Maintenance is 3700 calories)
    Calories: 3280
    Protein: 296 Grams

    Tomorrow is Chest/Shoulders/Tri's, Going to remove DB flys and do slight incline DB press so i can hit my upper chest a lot better. I'm also considering swapping out pushdowns for close grip bench. So pretty much removing some isolation exercises. Not 100% sure on this yet though. Well see tomorrow

    Morning weight as of 6/19/11 is 228.2Lbs (+2lbs)

    Now i don't really have to say anything as I've been in a caloric deficit along with doing cardio so those 2lbs aint fat I can also see subtle differences in my physique now like everything seems to be growing/filling out which makes me happy! I put so much effort into my sessions so i'm glad that the extra calories were the missing key. I'm looking slightly leaner every day as well, Really really looking forward to Chest/Shoulders/Tri's today i'm gonna focus primarily on squeezing my upper chest.

    I was wondering if you were doing any carb loading to meet your maintenance calories? I usually load up to my maintenance every fourth or fifth day, for example day 1-3 I eat 2,382 cal. (low carbs, less than 100g) then day four I eat 3,402 cal. (the extra 1,020 cal. from carbs) then back to 2,382 cal. (low carb)...and repeat. Its like throwing gasoline on your metabolism.

    Actually i haven't tried that, Sounds really interesting i'll give it a shot sooner or later! For now i don't think i'll need it because i'm KILLING these sessions! (even that's an understatement) Really really satisfied with how things are going.

    Chest/Shoulders/Tri's 6/19/11
    Duration: approx. 1 hour 45 min.
    Mood: AWESOME, Going back and combining the old & the new today made everything EPIC.
    Energy: Extremely solid again!
    Other notes: Rotated out incline bench as i do not feel/see progress from my upper chest which I've been doing for a good 3/4 months, started doing slight incline DB presses and they worked EXTREMELY well after only 1 set! Had a huge upper chest pump and for the first time EVER felt i have isolated it successfully!
    Lifts:
    Slight Incline DB Press-What i decided to start doing is pull my shoulders up almost like a shrug and press with my elbows tucked somewhat to my sides. I RECOMMEND if you have problems with upper chest just to try this at least once I've never had such a feeling of contraction in the upper chest than with this. Dumbbells recommended as you can really focus on the contraction! This worked so well i didn't feel it in my mid/lower chest at ALL that's how well it contracts! Also before you even try an upper chest exercise put your arms in front of you and squeeze your chest, Now try shrugging your shoulders and do the same with one hand on your upper chest, Chances are it's contracted that's the feel you want on this movement! Oh and focus on pressing the dumbbells up above your forehead at the top of the movement. Like an arch from bottom to top.
    20 x 60 *PR* Pump Set, Did this first to get the "feel" for the contraction of upper chest.
    45 x 16 *PR* Slow/Controlled
    55 x 8 *PR* Slow/Controlled
    60 x 6 *PR* Slow/Controlled
    Decline Bench-Did these with slow/controlled shorter range of motion reps and WOW my arms were shaking like crazy but NO SHOULDER PAIN
    155 x 33 *PR* This was an absolute killer, I focused on banging out as many as possible while slowing down at the bottom to minimize chance of shoulder pain/injury.
    195 x 12 *PR* +7 Reps
    215 x 8 *PR*
    225 x 6 *PR* Still keeping all ranges of reps! 1 second up/3 seconds down.
    Seated DB Overhead Press
    45 x 9 *PR* +4 Reps
    50 x 6 *PR*
    DB Laterals-These sets were pure hell, I don't care what anyone says you pick up a heavy dumbbell and try and "use momentum" to smash out reps. I call BS that it "doesn't stimulate the muscle fibers" My shoulders were CRYING for me to stop! And to be honest i still had SOLID form doing these it's not a super duper perfect form but i could control the weight.
    5 x 100 *PR* +30 Reps. I felt like a damn bird trying to fly away! Haha
    40 x 25 *PR*
    45 x 15 *PR
    Dips (Assisted)- I was so tired at this point, Honestly i know a lot of people will WORSHIP dips but i don't feel like they're for me, I don't feel the contraction that well. I might either switch to close grip bench which has worked well in the past or just drop dips for increased recovery.
    -50 x 9 *PR* +4 Reps
    EZ Bar Pushdowns-New exercise, felt these incredibly well. Probably will be a staple from now on. Rope Pushdowns may be harder but are more difficult to increase the resistance, This is a great substitute for me.
    40 x 30 *PR* Used a 10 second negative on last rep to kill the tri's
    70 x 9 *PR*

    Pre-Workout: 1 scoop GNC NO Loaded once again, Provided incredible energy but it should considering there's 400mg of caffeine in 1 scoop!!
    Intra-Workout: AI RecoverPRO 3 scoops!
    Post-Workout: Muscle-Tech Cell Tech 2 scoops + 3 scoops EAS Whey.
    Afterthoughts: I had a HUGE post workout meal, I literally almost couldn't finish it. It was 2 cups of whole grain oats, a little brown sugar and a whey protein shake with peanut butter. Equaled about 1300 calories but i really really felt i needed it, It was also around 110 Carbs 90 Grams protein so i was good to go!
    Also, I do feel exercise form is important in learning the movement and what part of the ROM your comfortable with but at the end of my workout i really don't care how my ROM looks, how much i lift and how "pretty" my form is. Keep in mind i'm not jerking the weights around crazily and being extremely sloppy so no, i feel less at risk of injury with what ROM works best for MY anatomy. I'm there to get in to GROW. I don't like using smaller ROM on legs though but everything else seems to respond very well to my adopted technique. Well just have to see where i end up in the coming weeks! Until then....
    TRAIN HARD!!

    Leg Day
    by thetinyguy

    "The hours leading up to training are both exciting and nerve-racking because not only am i happy to get into the gym, i'm also somewhat horrified at the effort i'll have to exert to reach that next step, that next level of intensity. Sometimes i find myself feeling nauseous,very nervous or even feel like i'm gonna **** myself but when i stand in front of that barbell i switch into a mindset of borderline insanity to most but it's just that one thing you have to do because last week was 10 reps, now it's time for 20."

    Leg Day!! 6/21/11
    Duration: approx. 1 hour 15min. (Decided to pickup the intensity and not worry about overall sets)
    Mood: Extremely focused and ready to go beyond my limits.
    Energy: Very high, a little nervous but was keeping all my energy focused on squatting.
    Other notes: I think i found a line i shouldn't cross now with squats, When getting those extremely hard slow reps after about 5 of them i started feeling it more in my hip flexor, clearly indicating my quads were done so i stopped the set there. I had already pushed wayyyy wayyy beyond last session and i don't want to risk a tear!
    Lifts:
    Barbell Back Squats-in Power Rack with safety pins set at 3rd pin.
    275 x 16 *PR* +8 Reps, I was going to attempt 20 but like i said at this point things started feeling a little weird.
    295 x 6 *PR* +4 Reps, Was VERY satisfied with getting this after the high reps!! As the weights go up, 1 rep may be extremely substantial so this makes me more than happy.
    295 x 4 *PR* +2 Reps, Again VERY satisfied i still managed 2 more reps!
    Notes: Usually i do 4 sets but these were BALLS OUT so i felt it was good enough.
    Lying Leg Curls- Did these straight sets, no rest pause today. Did half reps after going to failure on strict reps.
    75 x 15 *PR* +4 Reps
    90 x 11 *PR* +3 Reps
    105 x 10 *PR* +5 Reps
    120 x 6 *PR*
    Notes: These, were in an understatement: HELL, i literally get the worst burn in my hammy's so those few extra reps were very very tough.
    Seated Leg Extensions *Plate Loaded*-These are done with 1 second up, then a static hold at top for 2 seconds and then lowered slowly at a count of 4-5 seconds. Rest pause utilized.
    **Did just 1 CRAZY set, Rest-Pause, the whole shmeal**
    220 x 20 *PR* Not only did i add 20lbs i did more reps AND did an excruciatingly painful hold on last rep with super long negative. Sounds were made!!
    45 Degree Seated Calve Raises- Tried staying in heavier weight instead of just drop setting, To be honest all drop setting seems to do for these is make them burn a ton, Not saying that's bad but i figured staying up in weight would be a better idea.
    165 x 11 *PR*
    165 x 22 *PR*
    165 x 19 *PR*

    Pre-Workout: 1 scoop GNC NO Loaded again- Taste is so nasty but provides solid energy.
    Intra-Workout: 3 scoops AI RecoverPRO - Was sweating a LOT so i was downing this stuff it was so good between sets
    Post-Workout: 2 scoops Muscle-Tech Cell-Tech and 3 scoops EAS whey. Great stuff
    Afterthoughts: I think today was the hardest i've pushed myself on legs and to be honest, the harder i push myself the better i feel after i DESTROY my last workouts record! Also getting compliments on how i'm "leaning out" which is cool. It's good to see that people realize i mean business. Hopefully i'm inspiring people in the gym and on here because that's what i want to do besides achieving my goals! Until next time...

    Once again, had an amazing session. I've felt a noticeable increase in sex drive/aggression in the past few days. I read that as you get leaner your test levels do increase, I feel completely different right now but i'm not even that lean yet! This is so badass, Workouts are getting tough but my mind is getting even more tough.

    Back/Bi's 6/23/11
    Duration: approx. 1 hour 30 min.
    Mood: Like always, Really focused and ready to train. Felt more aggression today too, it definitely helps!
    Energy: Very high, ready to break last weeks PR's!!
    Other notes: Increased aggression, More sex drive, more personal well-being and definitely more confident. This is a huge difference i feel like a different person and i'm not on any AAS or PH's! Well now i'm a believer in the leaner you get the more your testosterone levels increase.
    Lifts
    Assisted Overhand Wide-Grip Pull Ups- Used straps today one these to try to focus more on my back contracting rather than my elbow flexors.
    -70 x 18 *PR* +8 Reps
    -50 x 11 *PR* +6 Reps, Rest Pause and Negative
    -40 x 8 *PR* 2 Negatives used.
    Assisted Hammer-Grip Pull Ups- Straps also used to help isolate back. I haven't been improving as drastically on these as the wide because i'm prioritizing my lats/teres major more than the bi's. So the're pretty much "Pre-Exhausted"
    -90 x 12 *PR* +2 Reps
    -70 x 11 *PR* +3 Reps & Negative
    -50 x 9 *PR* 3 Negatives utilized so 9 Reps total.
    Lat Isolation Pulldowns(Using Ab Straps) People asking me about these now, They work VERY well. They take your bicep out of the movement and it's primarily focused on your Teres Major/Lat/Rear Delt!
    80 x 60 *PR*
    100 x 25
    140 x 12 *PR* +4 Reps, Way more controlled than last week, barely had to cheat!
    150 x 6 *PR* Pretty controlled as well, Those cheat reps last week really helped out!!
    1-Arm DB Row (Leg on bench)
    70 x 20 *PR* Did these textbook form and they felt very LIGHT for the first time!
    130 x 12 *PR* +4 Reps, Utilized Rest Pause again.
    DB Shrugs- 1 Set!
    100 x 16 *PR*
    DB Concentration Curls- Rest pause and negatives utilized, One heavy set!
    10 x 100 *PR* +50 Reps, Did these high rep sets standing. About every 30 reps i took a 1-3 second break at the bottom *DID NOT PUT PLATES DOWN*
    45 x 5 *PR*
    Standing Barbell Wrist Curls- Weight is total of 45Lbs bar + plates. 3 sets! Stretching between sets.
    55 x 65 *PR* +15 Reps
    55 x 30 + Hold
    55 x 30 + Hold
    Standing DB Hammer Curls-1 all out set, cheating included with rest pause. Was again...F*CKING CRAZY!! I think i may just stick with a weight until i get at least 30 reps from now on.
    40 x 21 *PR*

    Pre-Workout: GNC N.O. Loaded once again 1 scoop, Still hate the taste haha
    Intra-Workout: AI RecoverPRO 3 scoops. Tasty
    Post-Workout: Muscle-Tech Cell-Tech 2 scoops, 3 scoops EAS whey in water with a banana.
    Afterthoughts: Very intense workout, To be honest the harder i have to try the more i'm enjoying the session. It's 10x more gratifying when you push yourself harder than last week. I honestly am feeling different from this too, My mindset is more focused on what i have to do to take that next step. I not only feel more focused but i can see my body changing before my eyes! Another side note, i trained my back so hard today that upon finishing that set of heavy 1 arm db rows my leg was twitching, just to give you an idea of the intensity
    TRAIN HARD!!

    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

    Haha hell yeah man, Excited that soon i'll be doing weighted pull ups instead of assisted! I slacked on them a lot but i gained so much weight so fast it got really hard to do them. When i was leaner i loved them i even was working up to 1 handed pull ups!

    DBZ is awesome, crazy wacked out of proportion muscle haha

    thats more like it on the protein lol...seriously when taking bcaa's protein requirement in my opinion can reduce. When training real intense I say 1.5 grams

    Ronnie Coleman swears in this months MD that when he started upping protein he saw the most gains..I can say this for me as well.

    That's a really good point, i've never tried eating more than about 250-300 grams of protein. I'll continue to mess around with it and see what happens. So far so good!
    Plus i have so many BCAA's it's ridiculous. I've got a 50% off coupon and i'm thinking of trying a natural test booster like testopro to give it a shot.

    Chest/Shoulders/Tri's 6/25/11
    Duration: approx. 1 hour 45 min.
    Mood: Was still sore from Back/Bi's, From this point on i'm taking out cardio on off days. At a 700 deficit on off days i'll still be losing at least 1lb a week just from diet alone, Not to mention my training sessions i burn 500-700 calories at LEAST. I think i'll give more time into my recovery considering i'm pushing harder than i ever have.
    Energy: Very good, Wasn't as focused as normal since my mother was home. She tends to distract me...
    Other notes: Today was extremely intense, I've read that protein pre-workout is a very good idea and possibly something sugary? I'm all ears on this since if it provides me with more energy to pound out sets and help with growth it'd be a GREAT addition.
    Lifts:
    Slight Incline DB Press- Ok i know this'll sound very ridiculous but after just one workout with this new upper chest exercise i can actually see a difference! Not only the muscle itself but i killed all my last weeks PR's as well! Arms started shaking pretty bad on some of these last reps, I was a little worried that my arms were gonna give out but i stuck through it.
    25 x 60 *PR*
    55 x 14 *PR* +6 Reps
    60 x 10 *PR* +4 Reps
    65 x 8 *PR*
    70 x 6 *PR*
    Decline Bench- After 5 NEW PR's from the last exercise i was pretty tired, I was really hoping i could up my weight on this today but i just didn't have it. Everything else i managed new PR's
    155 x 58 *PR* +25 Reps, After not getting a heavier weight i went all out on this set. They pretty much were lockouts like last time but it was pure hell.
    215 x 10 *PR* +2 Reps, I really fought for these so i'm more than happy with 2 extra reps.
    225 x 6, Same as last week but i attempted a 7th rep and i got stuck at the bottom. I fought with it for about 6/7 seconds then put it down. Still an improvement i guess?
    Seated DB Overhead Press
    50 x 10 *PR* +4 Reps
    50 x 5
    *PR* +1 Set of 50
    DB Laterals- *Ouch*
    10 x 75 *PR*
    45 x 22 *PR* +7 Reps
    50 x 12 *PR*
    Dips- Used different range of motion, Once again not a lot of progress from full range used for about 1.5 months. Felt better on elbows and since there was no assistance it was a lot harder.
    BW x 10 *PR* Using Rest Pause and Negatives.
    BW x 4
    EZ Bar Push Downs- This is one of those weight stacks and for some reason some of the plates stick... On the 45 set the 50 stuck to the 45 for about HALF of the damn set, so technically i did 15 or so reps with 50 then the rest with 45 after it dropped down. Kind of cool i guess since i thought it was 45.
    45/50 x 30 *PR*
    70 x 13 *PR* +4 Reps
    70 x 8 *PR* +1 Set

    Pre-Workout: 1 Scoop GNC NO Loaded, Still tastes crappy but works haha
    Intra-Workout: 3 Scoops AI RecoverPRO, Still tastes good!
    Post-Workout: 1.5 Scoops Muscle-Tech Cell-Tech, Ran out of this today. Any other recommendations as for a PWO drink? There's a tub of this stuff with 20% free Grape flavored for the same price. So if there are no ideas i'll just buy it.
    Afterthoughts: Like i said before cardio is getting the boot, I'm just so thrashed/sore after these sessions that i feel i NEED to just rest the day after. This is a first since i'm sailing into uncharted territory with never before used weights and higher intensity. So my main focus is on calories and protein, Maybe even putting some more protein in than normal. Either way things are really going good. Got a nice compliment from a gym member, "You a bodybuilder? Me: Well sort of i haven't done a show yet so i don't consider the title yet but i do plan to! Him: Your a big guy.. Me: Well thanks i really don't think about it that way i just look at it as i work as hard as possible. Him: Well keep it up man cause it's really working for you."
    I really don't mind compliments, but people seem to be throwing them at me lately. It's cool but none of it goes to my head but it DOES tell me that i know that what i'm doing is working which is more important than anything to me. ALSO it seems as progress begins to be smaller steps, that those smaller steps are becoming a lot more defining in relation to the body growing. Like before i may have gotten an extra 10 reps but not notice as big of a change as an extra 2 reps with a higher intensity.
    Ex.
    Say you go from 100 x 10 to 100 x 20, Was a challenge but..
    Now it's at least twice as hard because it's 200 x 10 to 200 x 20 double the weight this is just an example. I think i need food right now idk if that made any sense! haha
    TRAIN HARD!!

    Nice man compliments are great! Let's you know people are noticing your hard work. I work out at a pretty conservative YMCA so people look at me like I'm a freak haha. It's ok though makes me feel scary.

    Diet Breakdown 6/25/11
    Calories:3650
    Protein:306 Grams
    After some thought today i decided to eat some more carbs to hopefully help my muscles restore glycogen a little quicker. These workouts are starting to be mentally/physically wearing and last time i added some cal's i felt a lot better. I may have to bump up my calories to maintenance if i chose to keep training this hard. I'll still burn about 1lb of fat/week but the benefit will be i will continue to get the best of both worlds, Supplying my body with enough calories for muscle growth while simultaneously burning fat. It'll be a slow process but i'm still not 100% sure on it. When i wake up tomorrow well just have to see how i feel. Also i've decided on either light cardio/no cardio depending on how my legs feel. This new day on/day off training style is still new to me so i don't think my body is completely adapted to it yet. My plan is to keep pushing through and giving it my best, If in a few weeks i feel worse i'll probably take a week off completely. I really hate not going to the gym but if it's needed, i'll do it.

    Tomorrow will be stretching!

    Just woke up after sleeping in as much as i could, First time i woke up to use the bathroom i was STARVING. My body must have liked those calories from yesterday Anyways my entire upper body is sore, THANKFULLY my legs fell about 90% so tomorrow for leg day i should be good to go. I'm trying to use soreness as a gauge to how much i'm recovered, i know it isn't really 100% accurate but with conjunction of training numbers i should be able to see on paper if i'm recovered enough to progress. So far so good, i might just need to really buckle down and get through another month. Next week will mark the 4th week of day on/day off training!

    I like the day on day off split. It makes you have a rest day which is a must. I've seen too many dudes work out everyday non-stop and eventually get injured and/or plateau. As good as it feels to throw around the iron, its important to get that rest day to let your body recover and grow. Keep working hard brother.

    Awesome workout today! Set pins on PowerRack down another pin so i'm now 4 pins from take-off on squats (All previous days were done at 3 pins). Dropped the weight and i'm gonna work back up to the 300lb area again. I will continue to do this until i either reach ATG or the lowest i can go without knee pain. Doing the lower squats today DESTROYED my legs, In fact the first set i did 20 reps i had such a pump in my hamstring that it was cramping up and i had to wait a few minutes and stretch to do another one. Felt AWESOME, Everything went very well today. Added a few more sets on some exercises as well. Will post lifts later today!!
