Making the Superman

Page 2 of 10 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Had a great session.

    Pull-ups (bw) - ***223x17,7,6***

  2. What program are you using to journal your training? That looks interesting

  3. Gym hero on iPhone. I then take screen shots of its output and trim them with a photo editor.

  4. In Laramie, WY all week and the gym is closed for maintenance all week. Oh well. The park has 13 exercise stations positioned 40-60 yards apart right by the jogging path. I'll hit them in the morning.

    Did a light jogging workout this morning that quickly turned into walking.

    2 1/2 sprints @ ~100 yds and a pulled right hammie forced me to call it good this evening.

  5. Finally back at it. I believe today is officially DAY 9. Workout took 20 minutes to complete.

    Dips (BW=230)
    -100x10, -50x10, BWx5, +25x5, +50x5, ***+75x5***

    TBar Rows (includes bar weight)
    90x10, 135x10, 180x5, 225x5, 270x5, ***295x5***

    Nice short blast. Will be hitting my first round of 335 to failure tomorrow on back squats. Should be fun!

  6. I was wondering if you would be coming back. In those 20 mins you get alot done.

  7. Pushing hard! It's kinda fun doing HIT style workouts again.

    I've dropped my routines down to 45-60 min each again. To me it's far more effective especially with a busy schedule, because you can't use the excuse of I don't have time cause it takes me 90- 120 min to do today's full routine.

    If anything, my routines definitely show that there should be no excuse. What person can't find 30 minutes to hit it? I'm there done and back in 30. It's so easy! And I'm growing! Kind of hard to debate that.

    I agree completely, I have always thought HIT training sounded interesting just could never get over the bodybuilding mentality of the more the better.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm the same way. I live training and I'd love to be able to put 2-3 hrs a day in the gym like I used to back in college. But when there is a necessity for shorter workouts, HIT is very effective!

    Sick morning today. Woke up in the middle of the night with a VERY sore throat. Pounded some water, pseudophed, and Advil. Feeling better today. Throat's still a little scratchy and my nose is still a little stuffy, but worlds apart from yesterday and last night!

  12. If there's anything you learn from my journal, it's that I've learned how to roll with the punches over the years. Some guys dictate their lives by their training schedule. Iíve learned how to let my life dictate my training and still make good gains. What this means is that I have tried TONS of different training schemes over the years both out of the box oneís from the top trainers as well as my own creations based upon what Iíve learned from them. Iíve learned that periodization doesnít have to be something thatís forced, but something that happens naturally as you live life. If that means I can only get in one to two full body workouts a week, then thatís what Iíll take. If that means I can do a full hour volume workout, then thatís what Iíll take. Right now, I get 30 minutes a day 3-5 days a week. Thatís it. But guess what, Iím still growing. In order to be successful in training AND the other aspects of life, you need to make sacrifices and smart compromises. Like Bruce Lee said, ďBe water.Ē Thatís my main training philosophy.

    As I said above, my current training schedule is 30 minutes, 3-5 days a week. Somedays, that includes drive time. So, I hit my muscle HIT style using 531 to determine my poundages and progression. I then do two auxiliary exercises in a rest pause fashion. My workout usually takes 20 minutes to complete. This week Iím maxing out. Today was Overhead Press and Bench Press.

    Overhead Press - 135x10, 155x1, 175x1, 195x1, ***215x1***
    Bench Press - 315x1, 335x1, 355x1, 365x1(super easy), ***385x1*** PR!!!

    I canít believe how easy 365 was. 355 actually went up harder. 365 was like feather weight. I bet I could have repped 3-4 times with how easy it went up. So, I put on my big girl panties and REALLY went for it. 385 was a struggle, but I got it locked out! Things are going to be fun!

  13. Bench PR after heavy ass shoulder pressing?

    I read a research article a while back that attempted to determine how certain muscle groups effect each other in terms of strength. Like does working back first weaken pressing, etc. It came out this way:

    Shoulders -> Chest -> Back -> Arms
    Quads -> Hams -> Calves

    So, if you reverse the order, the weakening of that muscle group negatively effects the strength in exercises for the other groups. In other words, lifting chest then back shouldn't effect your weights, but lifting back then chest will negatively impact pressing strength.

    This may not be true for everyone, but I've tried it out and sure enough it was true for me. In other words, shoulder pressing has never seemed to impact my bench much if at all.

    That's what happens everytime I start training HIT style. I get strong real quick. It feels REALLY good.

  16. Got my new maxes in place.

    YESTERDAY
    Standing Overhead Press - 215x1
    Bench Press - 385x1

    TODAY
    Squats - 495x1
    Deadlift - 545x1

    Next week the program continues.

    Thanks bud! It's been a good week. Goals (just a little outside of realistic, but aim high!!!) 435 bench, 600 squat, and 650 dead by Christmas.

    Exactly! Those numbers are very impressive.

    Thanks man!!!

  21. Never fails that I get towards the end of a cycle and things get crazy at home or work. I'll post a more complete update tomorrow. Here's the cliff notes rundown:

    Diet - bulking week 2
    Training - 531 W2 D1 - Overhead Press 175x9, Bench Press 310x8
    Supps - killer even at a low dose!!!

  22. Squats - 400x9
    Felt a little shaky at first, but things smoothed out as the set progressed. I could definitely tell it had been over a week since my last leg workout.

    Deads - 440x8
    I could have pulled 9, but my back was feeling pretty tight from the squats. I forgot my chalk at home so I opted for straps instead. I'm going to be doing these strapless from here on out.

  23. You are looking a lot different now compared to those pics you posted 2 months ago after you went carb crazy. Fun to follow along

    Filling in and filling out in a good way. I'm not too terribly concerned about bodyfat right now though. I'm gonna just get as huge as possible. As long as the too abs are still visible, I'll be happy.
