    That's without. I usually don't factor in chains or bands, but made that kind of confusing. The total weight was probably around 235lbs (at the top of the movement).

    It's going to be long day. No time for the gym before work (was back at hospital), but I should get a back session in tonight. I'm saving my carbs for this evening, so I made some big, very low carb (<5g net) pancakes.

    They were awesome and came out a lot better than I thought they would. The syrup is actually really good. It's my favorite product in the WF line.

    Definitely not as macro friendly as his in that his are pretty well pure protein. Sounds good if it fits though!

    I hear a rumour of a Banana OEProtein flavour as well. Pancakes must be tried.

    Have at it. The same ingredients can be used for a quick microwave cake (I put it in a big microwavable bowl and use 60% power for 2-3 mins), brownie, or whatever. I just blend those together whenever I want something fast and/or without carbs. You could add some oats and a little more almond milk and make the same things as well (baking works too if you have a few extra minutes).

    They would've fit my macros, but I didn't start eating my carbs until a couple hours ago (450g).

    Yeah, looking forward to it. It should mix well with most of the other flavors too.

    1/9/14


    I trained later than I have in over a year and it went very well. Strength was great and I felt fantastic.


    Meadows Rows
    50x8
    75x8
    100x8
    135x8
    135x8
    135x8
    135x8

    -focus was on form while being somewhat aggressive



    Chain Deadlifts
    135x3
    225x3
    275x3
    315x3
    315+1 chain (per side) x5
    315+2 chains x5
    315+3 chains x5
    315+4 chains x5

    -explosive: reset for a split second and fired the weight up hard (no bouncing)

    -These went up easier than expected. Explosiveness was solid on all sets.


    405x12

    -It wasn't called for, but I threw in somewhat of a challenge set. I was very surprised by how light these felt after removing the chains (and adding plates). I didn't start losing my speed/explosiveness until about the 9th or 10th rep. There were probably another 2 reps left in the tank, but I would've started grinding them out.



    DB Pullovers
    55x12
    55x12
    55x12
    55x12

    -lying on (not across) bench



    BB Shrugs
    275x10
    275x10
    275x10

    -2 sec hold/flex in contracted position



    Dead Hang
    90lbs for ~2mins

    -hanging from pull-up bar with dip belt+weight

    -head tilted back



    Banded Hyperextensions
    3 sets to failure (15-20 reps)

    I love your workouts. Despite being physique oriented there is never a lack of some serious weight being thrown around on certain exercises. Nice balance between isolation and compound movements as well.

    Thanks bolt. That's what I love about them as well. They can go from some light DB work to cranking out compound movements with chains or bands. I couldn't be happier with the way that Meadows sets everything up.

    I just grabbed some new bands today too.

    1/10/14


    Neutral Grip Machine Press
    80x20 (warm-up)
    120x10 (warm-up)
    140x10 (warm-up)
    160x10 (warm-up)
    180x10
    190x10
    200x10

    -split second hold/flex at lockout



    DB Hex Press (without hex DBs) / Band Over and Backs
    60x10 / 10
    60x10 / 10
    60x10 / 10
    60x10 / 10

    -hex press: 1 sec pause on chest / drive up and flex as hard as possible at the top / "smashing" DBs together throughout entire movement


    1st set:





    Stretch Pushups / Band Over and Backs
    failure / 10
    failure / 10
    failure / 10

    -pushups: feet elevated on 1' box / hands on aerobic steps / chain across back / chin up / sternum lowered to and touching ground / back straight



    DB Seated Side Laterals
    10x10
    15x10
    15x10
    15x10
    15x10

    -"ultra strict" form: no swinging or shrugging / lifting entirely with shoulders to eye level

    -I was asked by a couple of guys doing side laterals, why I was using such a light weight. I told them that my focus was on form, which led to helping them work on establishing a solid mind-muscle connection (which can be very difficult with lateral shoulder movements IMO). I asked them to really concentrate on lifting (and feeling) the DBS with their shoulders, right from the start of the movement (no arms, wrists, traps, or anything else assisting). There are 2 points in the movement where I think the mind-muscle connection can easily be lost and other muscles/momentum start getting involved. One is immediately, when first lifting the weight and the other is about 1/3 of the way up during the concentric portion. I had them try being conscious of this and they were amazed by how little that they could actually lift when only using their delts. They first tried using 20lb DBs and both had the weight stall around 1/3 of the way up. 10lbs ended up being the perfect weight for them to perform "smooth", controlled reps, with strict form. Once someone (with bodybuilding goals) realizes that "heavy" is relative and muscle knows tension, certain movements start becoming much more effective.



    DB Seated Front Raises
    15x10
    15x10
    15x10
    15x10

    -strict form / raising to ~2-3" above eye level



    Band Pullaparts
    20
    20
    20

    -lifting chest while pulling band apart / 1 sec flex and hold

    Breezy, are you currently doing the muscular demolition program? How do you like this compared to the reactive pump program?

    Breezy, I respect the fact that you stop and help others to make things more effective. That said, you do that here every day. I (and I am sure I can say WE) pick up something everyday when you post a workout/video/explanation. Thanks man.

    Yeah, there's about 2 weeks left. It's been great and helped get my strength/size up since my competition. I'm around 210lbs and leaner than I was the last time I weighed the same. Reactive Pump is solid too. If I remember correctly, I think it has a lot more supersets on arm and chest/shoulder (pump) days. Most of the Muscular Demolition sessions follow Meadows' approach of getting the muscle full of blood, hitting it with explosive work, getting a massive pump, and working the pumped muscle with a movement that emphasizes stretch. I believe RP (and the rest of his programs) has a similar approach as well. I'd definitely recommend either one.

    Thanks for the kind words wasme. It really means a lot. I'm always willing to help anyone where I can. I wouldn't go around the gym correcting people's form though. The guys were genuinely thankful for the advice, which was pretty cool. Hopefully, I don't see them "throwing" 40lb DBs up again next week . It's awesome to hear that you or anyone else is benefiting from this log. Thanks again man.

    I noticed they both involved hitting chest and Delts twice weekly. I think I'm going to do the twelve week program three, followed by md, then rp. Not sure exactly though

    This is my plan as well. Currently doing program 3, and once doing moving into Reactive Pump.

    Yup, I like the additional light work. That sounds like a solid plan, ace.

    I'm not a big coffee drinker, but made some this morning before heading to work (working all weekend). I usually have it black, but decided to try it with evco. Its great. I'd add some Kerrygold butter as well, but am currently out (I think there's a name for the coffee, evco, grass fed butter mix).


    I'll be working until around 4:30pm, which gives me just enough time to get to the gym for a leg session and get home before the Pats game. I'm saving my carbs for later (doing this whenever I train in late afternoon/early evening, which is probably 2-3 times per week) and look forward to a feast, right around game time.

    I was never a big coffee drinker either until recently I have a cup a day now. Tried it every which way, coffee shops, different blends instant and grinds, keurig cups, couldn't do it.

    One day came across the Torani sugar free coffee syrups and tried out the caramel in plain instant coffee and loved it. They have hazlenut and vanilla as well that I've seen.
    If you wanted a calorie free way to sweeten and make coffee more bearable I would try it out

    I used to be that way, tried a lot of different things and would "foo-foo" it up, as my dad would say lol....stuff was delicious.

    Slowly over the years I've dropped things from my coffee little by little to now, I can only drink it black lol. Weird how things change.

    Following these workouts and learning allot I know if someone as big as you can grow with small weights, I shouldn't fear doing the same thing.

    I don't mind the taste of coffee at all and actually prefer it black. I'd heard/read about adding evco (and grass fed butter) and needed some fats, so I gave it a shot. I absolutely love caramel though, so I'll probably check those out.

    I started liking black coffee when it was all that I drank on competition day lol. Especially after only drinking16oz water the day before.

    Great to hear bud. Haha yeah, there's more than one way to grow. I love lifting "heavy" as well, but it really depends on the movement and my focus at the time. There's nothing wrong with moving big weight, as long as your joints/tendons/ligaments aren't what's being "worked".

    Yeah. I just know my form could be better when I'm churning out higher weights on certain accessory lifts like lateral raises and db curls. From what I'm seeing it's probably better to take a half step back and work on form with those ones.

    Pardon my ignorance, what is EVCO?

    I drink my coffee (with a touch of almond milk, and usually 1 splenda)... I really should try drinking it black.

    Couple of big games tonight Breezy. Pats then the Bruins at 1030 (who need a damn win). I enjoy watching football but not like hockey - so don't really have a team that I route for. There are definitely teams though I enjoy watching.

    Yeah, you might be surprised by how much more of a beating the targeted muscle takes with a lighter weight and strict form.

    Yup, big night of sports. Football is definitely my second favorite sport to watch and play, behind hockey. I need to hurry up and make some food before I miss kickoff.
