Hey Glen, just out of curiosity, what made you decide to increase rest and subsequent weight? One of the things I really like about this workout (esp while cutting) is how it keeps my heartrate up since I am spending more time under tension than resting.
I just want to add for anyone skeptical of the effectiveness of this style workout: you gotta try it before discounting it. I wish I would have started this ages ago. By going 2 days on and one day off I am hitting every bodypart 3x in 8 days and only spending 45 minutes on each workout.

just decided to change it up a bit .. no real reason

Just wondering, does anyone use this type of training while off cycle and if so, how is recovery and results? I'm scared of going towards failure from all my readings of waterbury etc., but it seems like an interesting way to train.
04-13-2006, 09:45 AM
yes i used if for 4-5 months while off .. the results obviously weren't as great but i never had a problem with recovery ..did basically the same thing and took a week break every 8 weeks ... my favorite way to train regardless
04-13-2006, 10:50 AM
So in other words there were results while off, just slowed due to the absence of AAS? As you know I've been trying to create my own routine for some time and I tried the high frequency this week but it absolutely burned me out so this is on my list of options.
04-13-2006, 04:00 PM
exactly and the results off were the best results i had while off as compared to other training routines .. of course diet plays a very large role in that

Have you ever tried them on an incline bench?Originally Posted by Beelzebub
04-13-2006, 05:02 PM
done them on an incline, flat, on the floor, and on a decline ... kills my elbows regardless
04-13-2006, 05:59 PM
What the fook, I don't know how I didn't see this before...Anyway, good to see you are keeping a log, but I think Beezle has you beat until you start putting perty smilies in here...
04-13-2006, 06:29 PM
Same, I feel my elbows pop and crackle when I use 125's on skulls. I haven't tried Beez's tate presses because they look so damn gay...
I may rethink my tentativeness about trying hybrid DC after PCT.. I'm not keeping a log though, 'cause I'll be doing it natty. summab1tch!
04-13-2006, 06:35 PM
yeah, still hurt and on decline. not concerned about it, i don't think they're that great of an exercise. but if i could do it without pain, i would. arm development isn't exactly my weak point at the moment anyway.Originally Posted by spatch
04-13-2006, 07:02 PM
everyone i know that does or had done skull crushers say they hurt the elbows bad, and there is so many other excersizes out there.
plus how many big time benchers do you see skull crushers in their routines?
04-13-2006, 07:05 PM
Try it lying down on flat with one arm and DB's, held with hammer grip bring it right down next to your ear. You hold your elbow slightly back with opposite arm and extend.

yeah, the neutral grip is easier on the elbows, agreed.
Gleprechaunihan, I agree closer grip pulldowns,(or chins) focused and strict, to the chin level are latsearers.. Charles Glass showed how much a little variance in form, even hip placement, can change the effectiveness of a simple back movement.. I was sold.
Then again, Beez's referral to Rack Chins had me blown away. There are so many good ways to train the back.. and in my case I need them all.. it's my lagging part as of now.

Just started your routine glen, I really like it so far. I really feel like i can recover quite well between workouts training this way. I got a quick question for all you experienced lifters on this thread (because i noticed there are so many!) but I am still pretty much natural, the only thing I have used b4 that is hormonal is prostan, and god knows that is a very weak chemical but I still got some good results with it. My question to you guys is are people almost in a sense "capped" with how far their muscle growth can grow simply because there hormones simply dont let them get too big? My diets in order and when my training is going well, I feel like I get results (ever so slowly) and sometimes I feel like I take a step back every once in a while, then forward, and back, but then get myself back to about where I was hovering around 190-200 depending on whether or not i am looking to be defined or bulking. I hope this question makes sense. Like is the only way to truly put on size is with AAS? Or have i just not found my nitch yet for what works for me?
04-13-2006, 08:33 PM
how old are you and how many years have you been training .. what's your bf % around
04-13-2006, 09:20 PM
I use that hammer grip curl bar (whateverchamacallit) for my skulls and it alleviates the elbow pain for me.Originally Posted by jonny21

What worked well for me (natural ecto) was eating a ****load of food, lifting on a decent program and resting a lot. Since September I have gained nearly 50 lbs naturally. I drop and gain weight super fast, but even just eating maintanance on off weeks, I keep everything fairly well. If you can't accomplish some sort of homeostasis like this, I'm guessing your diet is not in order somewhere. Sometimes I notice people try to be too picky and try to worry about little things rather than just getting a ****load of food at the right macro ratio into their body.

(This is for you Beelz...)
I wish I was little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller,
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
and a six four Impala
I wish I was like six-foot-nine
So I can get with Leoshi
Cause she don't know me but yo she's really fine
You know I see her all the time
Everywhere I go, and even in my dreams
I can scheme a way to make her mine
Cause I know she's livin phat
Her boyfriend's tall and he plays ball
So how am I gonna compete with that
'Cause when it comes to playing basketball
I'm always last to be picked
And in some cases never picked at all
So I just lean up on the wall
Or sit up in the bleachers with the rest of the girls
Who came to watch their men ball
Dag y'all! I never understood, black
Why the jocks get the fly girls
And me I get the hood rats
I tell 'em scat, skittle, scabobble
Got hit with a bottle
And I been in the hospital
For talkin' that mess
I confess it's a shame when you livin' in a city
That's the size of a box and nobody knows yo' name
Glad I came to my senses
Like quick-quick got sick-sick to my stomach
Overcommeth by the thoughts of me and her together
So when I asked her out she said I wasn't her type
I wish I had a brand-new car
So far, I got this hatchback
And everywhere I go, yo I gets laughed at
And when I'm in my car I'm laid back
I got an 8-track and a spare tire in the backseat
But that's flat
And do you really wanna know what's really whack
See I can't even get a date
So, what do you think of that?
I heard that prom night is a bomb night
With the hood rats you can hold tight
But really tho' I 'm a figaro
When I'm in my car I can't even get a hello
Well so many people wanna cruise Crenshaw on Sunday
Well then I'ma have to get in my car and go
You know I take the 110 until the 105
Get off at Crenshaw tell my homies look alive
Cause it's hard to survive when your livin'
In a concrete jungle and
These girls just keep passin' me by
She looks fly, she looks fly
Makes me say my, my, my
I wish I was a little bit taller...
I wish I was a baller...
I wish I was a little bit taller y'all
I wish I was a baller
Hey, I wish I had my way
'Cause everyday would be a Friday
You could even speed on the highway
I would play ghetto games
Name my kids ghetto names
Little Mookie, big Al, Lorraine
Yo you know that's on the real
So if you're down on your luck
Then you should notice how I feel
Cause if you don't want me around
See I go simple, I go easy, I go greyhound
Hey, you , what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down
Ahhhh, yes, ain't that fresh?
Everybody wants to get down like dat
I wish, I wish, I wish...

i'm gonna ask HBS6 that you post your diet, your age, and how long you've been training for in a different thread .. we'd all love to help out i'd just rather not have this thread all cluttered up .. no offense at all seriously

8 plates per side - 25
9 plates per side (max it can hold) - 17
hams - couldn't do GHR at this gym
lying leg curls (weight is the number that is listed on the plate no idea what i translates to)

16 - 4
calves - seated raises
3 plates - 15, 12, 12
bis - db preachers
50's - 10 (per arm)

Do you realize how much work it was to dig up the lyrics to that song?!?!?!
Come on bruh!
That was a seriously good post. I don't think you realize how hard is to find that song.
I haven't heard it in like 12 years or something.
BTW - you got PM about training...

Did you ever think about pyramiding up instead of down, like doing high weight/low reps for your first set and ending with light weight/high reps?
