  1. I sound like a broken record but daggum brother, you're volume makes me tired! That's a feat in itself just finishing that gauntlet, not to mention you're still moving good weight the entire time.

  3. Some of the most intense chest DOMS I've had in a LONG time from yesterday's workout. Those 130% isolated peck deck flyes are here to stay

  4. Day 15 of the Blowup stack

    Heavy Arms

    Took a scoop of hemavol with a scoop of mr. hyde today. Legs are still sore from the lift saturday.. so I bailed on the light legs set. Great workout, though.

    Inclined (45 deg) db curls (sequential - no alternating):
    1. 50x7
    2. 50x6
    3. 50x6
    4. 50x6

    Seated Hammer curls (alternating):
    1. 50x8
    2. 50x7
    3. 50x6

    Overhead tricept db extensions: (PR-ish never gotten/ attempted all 10 reps with 100's on 4 sets)
    1. 100x10
    2. 100x10
    3. 100x10
    4. 100x10

    Dip machine:
    1. 210x12
    2. 210x12
    3. 210x11

    Hammer/ H-bar preacher curls:
    1. 85x12
    2. 95x9
    3. 100x7 PR
    4. 105x5 PR

    Cable very close grip curls (ez curl style bar):
    1. 72.5x10
    2. 72.5x10
    3. 80x8
    4. 80x7

    Skull Crushers: (w/ ez curl bar)
    1. 95x11
    2. 95x10
    3. 95x10

    Forearms when I got home.

    Keep raising the bar!

  5. Still knocking out those PR's! 50lb db curls at a 45 degree incline is pretty impressive too. Great workout overall man.

    Thanks man! I really wish my outer bicep heads would start growing. I try to focalize them as best I can. They have been invisible forever.

    Do you know any unusual variations for them?

    Hmm...nothing too unusual. Cross body hammer curls and reverse EZ-bar curls could help.

    Thanks man, I've done these in the past! I like the rev grip ez curls

    Thank you! I will try these again, sometimes the close grip hits the wrists a little hard!

  10. The best would probably be the incline curs with dumbbells, although looks like you are already doing those.

    Are you doing those fully supinated or are you twisting as you curl? If twisting make sure to not just hammer curl them the majority of the way and try to be fully supinated for most of the movement (this will go for any twisting motion on curls IMO). Maybe also try cross body curls in a supinated position as well. O and if didn't notice I think the supination is the important part so when you do those close grip curls make sure it is with a straight bar and not the EZ bar as that will usually result in less supination.

    Overall it will mostly be genetics (unfortunately) but that doesn't mean you can't fight that! This made me rethink some of my own biceps training so thanks.

    Thanks Bolt! I'll try any focus on the supination!

  12. Day 16 of the blowup stack.

    Shoulders and traps

    Came up with a new pwo cocktail and it was insane. I felt like I could have gone for days.. hence the high volume. I had to make myself stop at an hour and 45 min. Mixed 1 scoop enhanced, 1 scoop hemavol, and 0.75 scoop of Focus XT. Insane pumps and awesome mental clarity. It was better than when my CRAZE cherry got popped. And I'm not even kidding. I guess you could call it PR's on the face pulls, but I'm more or less getting a good feel for them.

    Side raise machine/ lateral:
    1. 175x10
    2. 175x9
    3. 180x7
    4. 180x6

    3. 50x10
    4. 50x10

    Dumbbell shrugs:
    1. 100x15
    2. 100x15
    3. 100x15
    4. 100x15

    Smith machine behind the back shrugs:
    1. 275x10
    2. 275x10
    3. 275x10
    4. 275x10

    Face pulls (down on one knee):
    1. 72.5x12
    2. 72.5x12
    3. 80x10

    Horizontal Press (Courtesy of Breezy):
    1. 8lbx10
    2. 8lbx10
    3. 8lbx10

    Reverse peck deck (2 sec hold at max contraction): (Up in weigh lower reps)
    1. 115x10
    2. 130x8
    3. 145x6
    4. 145x6 (dropset to fail)

    Dumbell arnold presses:
    1. 40x12
    2. 45x10
    3. 50x8
    4. 55x7

    Killer workout. the horizontal presses are mean, but you definitely feel them deep in your lower back. almost like your planking while doing them. I liked them alot, though.

    Yeah, check it out. I felt like it was from trying to keep the Dbs up around shoulder level while pressing them. Regardless, they give a nice rear delt burn.

  17. Is that a 25 set arm workout? Jeez!

  27. I did the horizontal presses again this morning and understand what you were saying. I could feel them somewhat in my lower back, but lessened the impact by not hanging my head off the bench as much and sticking with 5lbs.

    Haha. Yeah, once you commit to using less than 10lbs, I don't think it's a big deal lol.
