  6. 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."

  7. BEST LEG SESSION EVER!! People are starting to know that i'm really serious about this now, Get ready to see some epic progress. Tweaking my Back/Bi routine for thursday! Will post up my numbers later... HUGE leap in leg progress today to say the least

  8. 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...

    Yeah it isn't easy by any means but so gratifying when you just try as hard as possible to beat your previous workout, My legs already are hurting in a good way haha

  12. 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.

  14. 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!!

    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.

  22. 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!!

  23. 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.

  25. 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!
