    very very true, people who do 30 sets of shoulders should learn from that

  2. the entire time i trained WSB (3.5 months) i did shoulders maybe 3 times .. guess what? my shoulders grew and got stronger

  3. I rarely ever train shoulders, and mine have gotten bigger and stronger by doing nothing. Well I do face pulls but I never do presses or anything like that.

  4. you guys feel the rear delts get hit enough, I always hear that they dont without hitting them directly? Oh and Glen, I noticed you dont do any trap work, im sorry if this is a dumb question but why is that?

  5. I don't want to answer for Glen here but for a lot of people they get work their traps and rhomboids through doing their other back work. I know people who have never once trained their traps and they have pretty large traps. I'm the opposite, I train them a lot or else they just won't grow

  6. ktw nailed it .. i feel my traps get plenty of work from deads and rack deads as well as bb rows .. as for rear delts they manage to get hit as well .. compound movements hit a LOT of muscles and i do lots of them

  7. awesome, I actually have decent traps, maybe not hitting them directly will help them grow better...

  8. over working a muscle is never a good thing

  9. Nice work Glen..And I concur with ktw and Glen, heavy ass deads kill my traps..

  10. Oh my god GHR's are killer. I thought my hammies were going to snap. They are crazy hard to do bro. No doubt they will improve my other compound moves... thanks for the heads up

  11. yeah man no problem ... they are a crazy exercise!

  12. 4/23

    well today was a miserable workout .. my allergies are just out of control right now and i felt really wiped out .. probably shouldn't have lifted but whatever

    DB preacher curls (reverse side)
    50 - 10
    60 - 6
    60 -5

    squats (below parallel)
    325 - 10
    385 - 7 (spotted on last rep)

    lying leg curls (weird plate loaded machine .. pretty much clinically dead at this point)
    2 plates - 10
    2 plates + 25 - 10
    2 plates + 50 - 8

    calves .. screw them i felt like a dog's ass

    so as you can see it was a pretty sh*tty workout although i was pretty happy with my squat today

    over and done with for the day

  13. Hey man, I weigh the same amount as you and would give anything to put up those numbers you did today. For my accumulation week I am following nearly the same DC setup as you, with a few minor differences

    Hey glen, have you been taking any methyl b12 for those allergies? Im not sure, but i thought that I read that Bio (mod) said that his allergies have been non-existent since starting his methyl b12. Just thought i would mention it, especially since IBE has their sale going on.

  15. thanks for the kind words ktw i appreciate it

    idunk - i've been taking 1000mcg of injectable b12 eod for a few days now .. i picked up some claritan .. man that's a wonder drug! .. i feel so much better though definitely not even close to 100%

  16. 4/27

    sh*tty workout today .. i've got a sinus infection .. more on this in a minute

    BB bench press
    245 - 10
    265 - 7
    285 - 4

    back thickness
    T-bar rows
    3 plates - 10
    4 plates - 8
    5 plates - 5

    back width
    reverse grip close grip pulldowns
    210 - 10
    220 - 8
    230 - 7 PR

    incline skulls
    115 - elbow went kaputt ... felt an incredibly sharp burning sting in my left elbow basically just dropped the bar to ivydude

    that's it .. i'm officially done with skullcrushers .. screw them ... my elbow feels fine now and i don't really think i did any damage but it certainly hurt a ton and scared me for a few minutes

    given that i nearly killed my elbow and i've got a sinus infection along with the fact that i feel i'm getting close to being overtrained i'm probably going to skip my workout friday ... i was already planning on taking next week off as my finals start then and i literally won't have time to lift .. the week after that i'll be in puerto rico so i can't lift then

    so this log will be on a 2.5 week hiatus .. i haven't had a week off in a LONG time as i jumped straight into this training from WSB and i think the time off will do me really well (except that when i start back up i'll be "off" .. so that will likely be slightly disappointing)

  17. Sorry to hear about the unfortunate events that took place bro. Hope you get better man and good luck on those finals and we'll eagerly be awaiting your return.

  18. friggin skull crushers. sounds like it's definatley time for rest.

  19. yeah but the name sounds so cool.

    skull crushers.... uh huhmmmmm

  20. Get well, kick ass on the finals, and enjoy the vacation.

  21. skull crushers do it again

  22. hey glen, quick question, I cant find any info on eating carbs b4 bed, do you recommend it (of course them being low GI)? It would be with in my caloric requirements, i was just curious if i should work carbs into my first 5 meals and forgo them in the sixth, what do you think? Sorry to ask such a newb question in an advanced forum, but you def know what your doing so this is why i ask. Thx.

  23. Enjoy the time off Glen.. Rest well deserved.

  24. thanks poobs

    Hbs .. i think it depends a lot on your metabolism .. i personally don't do it even when bulking .. i just have protein and healthy fats before bed

    if you are having trouble gaining weight it would probably help out .. to be honest i'm really not much of a diet guru .. i know how to eat for my body and i know how to put on muscle without a lot of fat and how to diet, but for me specifically .. you'll probably get a better answer posting this in a new thread in one of the diet forums .. sorry i can't be of more help

  25. No you helped, game me your opinion. Gaining weight isnt too much of a problem for me, so i probly should refrain from the b4 bed carbs. Thx.

    If this is the case [gaining weight comes easy], the rule of thumb is to avoid starchy carbs in the PM. In other words, all meals after lunch should consist of protein/fat/veggies. You could skip the veggies in your last meal.

  27. I dunno about that, i think i can handle some low GI carbs up until like 4 hrs b4 bed.

  28. everyone is different in terms of their response to carbs .. plenty of people eat carbs right up until bed and stay very lean

  29. going crazy yet with 2.5 weeks off?

  30. i REALLY enjoyed the first week off .. i feel a million times better and didn't even realize at the time how sh*tty i was feeling .. would LOVE to get back into the gym this week but i'm leaving tomorrow for Puerto Rico so i'm just gonna wait until next monday to get back it .. while on PCT though
