  6. Here for you brother! I will keep your family in my prayers

  7. Thanks the well wishes everyone. I'm passing some time while my father continues to be worked on. He's had/is having very serious heart and kidney problems, is breathing through a tube, and basically being supported 100% by meds/machines. It's crazy seeing such a strong guy in this condition. Things don't look great right now, but he's at least receiving a little more oxygen/breathing better. I'll be spending the majority of my time in the ICU for now, hoping that he makes some kind of improvement.


    I went over to the gym this morning (close to hospital) while I was told there'd be a couple hours before I could return to his room and got out some aggression/destroyed my legs. I started with leg curls, followed with a crazy amount of squats (back/pause/front/ATG/drops), and wrapped up with leg extensions/tear drop busters and HS split squats. My leg strength was awful, which was to be expected having not trained them in months and being on little sleep. Either way, I hit them hard and am already struggling to walk. I'll probably post my numbers when I'm waiting around later today.

    That happened to my dad when I was younger (different reasons though), it sucks seeing him like that, I know.


    Hoping everything works out for the best buddy.

  12. Thanks guys. My father has very surprisingly been doing better, after making it through multiple heart attacks and failing kidneys. He is currently having a heart procedure, which hopefully goes smoothly. I've basically been living at the hospital and will most likely be having life start to get back to normal soon.

    My diet has been incredibly poor and calories/carbs have been through the roof. I was able to make some food on my own today and hopefully end what was the worst stretch of "bad" food that I've ever had. One benefit of the excess calories and carbs has been my training. I went down the street to the gym the last 2 days during down time and my endurance and intensity were back to where they were months ago. I'll try to post what I can remember when I have free time later today. It'll probably be a couple days before I'm back posting regularly, but wanted to give a quick update while I had the chance.

  17. Thanks again everyone. The procedure went pretty well and he's still doing alright.


    I think I'll be creating my own program over the next week or two. I've been missing the heavier weight/lower rep lifts and will be implementing a lot of them into my training. There will still be a good amount of Meadow's influence (higher rep/partials/heavy partials/bands/drops/slow eccentrics/explosive movements), but it'll be a nice mix and change of pace. My plan is to have a heavy chest/shoulder and probably back day, as well as lighter hypertrophy focused days for each during the week. Arms and legs will most likely be a mix of both each session. I usually stuck to the 3-5 rep range for pretty much everything before starting Mtn. Dog and had good success with adding size and strength. I believe my new approach should be very beneficial for both and can't wait to see how it treats me.

    I just started including some "heavier" lifting, which I absolutely loved and has inspired me to design the program. Here's a breakdown of some of my last few sessions (don't remember a lot of it):


    Back

    DB Dead-Stop Rows
    -worked up to 135x8 (started at 90x10) and then did a drop set (10lb increments) down to 65lbs. It felt like it took forever and lead to one of the strongest lat pumps of my life.


    Weighted Pull-ups
    -6 sets with 25-45lbs (wide/shoulder/close neutral)


    O.G. T-Bar Rows
    -6 sets of 5: 3 sets 90 degree angle/3 sets 45 degree angle (constant tension)


    Dante Rows
    -3 sets of 6 (3 sec flex)


    Neutral Grip Pulldowns / Rope Stretchers
    -3 sets of 8


    Prone Band Shrugs / Prone Band Rows
    -3 sets of 8 from multiple angles (changed positioning on bench)


    -I did at least another exercise, but don't remember what it was.




    Chest/Shoulders

    -3 sets of 25

    Nope.

  20. I'm very happy that my father is still doing alright and could possibly be transferred out of the ICU soon.



    11/13/13


    I got in a solid back workout this morning. I did higher rep work with rest kept to about 45 seconds to 1.5 minutes, which should be similar to how I approach my hypertrophy focused back sessions going forward.


    Pull-ups
    15
    15
    12

    -wide grip / arched sternum



    Meadows Rows
    75x15
    100x10
    100x10
    100x10

    -25lb plates for increased stretch/depth
    -2 sec flex (1st time trying and was solid)
    -constant tension

    Challenge Set: 100x29





    HS Iso-Row (single arm)
    90x12
    115x10
    115x10
    115x10

    -3 sec eccentric / 2 sec flex / 3 sec concentric / 1 sec stretch (tough tempo/huge pump)



    DB Pullovers (lying on bench)
    50x15
    60x10
    60x10
    65x8

    -5 sec eccentric / 2 sec hold (out of bottom at peak tension) / 3 sec concentric



    Prone DB Shrugs / Prone DB Rows
    70x12 / 70x8
    70x12 / 70x8
    70x12 / 70x8

    -shrugs: 3 sec flex / rows: 1 sec flex



    Fat Bar Deadlift
    155x12
    245x10, x10 (straps)
    245x10, x10 (straps), 135x12 (standard BB/no straps)
    245x9, x10 (straps), 135x12 (standard BB/no straps)

    -First time trying deads with a fat bar and holding on was a struggle (no chalk either). Either way, switching to straps and then a standard bar had my back on fire (already was all session) and I was ready to collapse. The standard BB was loaded up next to me, so there wasn't any rest while changing plates.

  25. I absolutely destroyed my legs this morning and will post an update/vids sometime today.


    I brought calories and carbs back faster than planned, but the damage looks minimal considering everything that I've consumed. Things are back on track and post-workout meals are glorious. I made today's pretty awesome after the toughest workout that I've had in a long time. It's time to do a little growing.

    This was unbelievable and the sandwich actually held up great (not a crumb). The cereal is 1.25 cups each of Special K "Fruit and Yogurt" and "Red Berries" in 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk. WF syrup is on the additional gf waffles.

    Sounds like the workout was a rough one!

    That meal looks kick ass. My step-daughter made a sandwich just like that yesterday - however between the two waffles was 3 scoops of Neapolitan ice cream. I was jealous as hell lol
