    muscle memory is lots of fun

    might have gone a bit too heavy on pulldowns this workout though .. all my reps were legit .. there just weren't that many lol .. no big deal keep it the same weight next workout

    8/28

    started training with my training partner again and things will be a little different for workout B days

    a "westside" style routine will be used (kind of) there will be dynamic effort days and max effort days

    this will not affect workout A days

    i'm doing this because i was really impressed with the results of my lower body the last time i trained westside

    so yesterday we did a light dynamic day (there was a major time constraint)

    quads - speed squats
    225 x 2 x 12

    hams - GHR
    BW - 6
    BW - 6
    BW - 5

    bis - preacher curls
    bar with 45's - 10
    bar with 50's - 8
    bar with 50's - 5

    there will be another exercise added on dynamic days (pause squats, 1 legged squats, etc) didn't have time for calves

    awesome workout brutha. those rack deads will kill ya when going all out. that's why i do em last. i think they're more tiring than heavy squats.

    I just recently tried the vertical leg press... it's interesting, stretches the lower back.. feels awkward at first, but I liked it after a few sets.

    What are these dynamic squats you speak of? Westside terminology?

    9/11 -- missed fridays workout due to an all day puke session .. no fun (caught a bug)

    max effort deadlifts
    225 x 10
    315 x 3
    365 x 3
    405 x 3
    455 x 1
    495 x 1
    525 x 1 .. at this point my arrogance and (possible) retardation prompted me to attempt 585 .. didn't work

    bis - straight bar curls
    115 - 10
    125 - 8
    135 - 6 (easy definitely move up)

    hams - GHR
    BW - 8
    BW - 7

    was really crunched for time and had to split unfortunately

    i do stend to stay lean .. i'll get a little chubbier than that but not much at all ... i don't believe in bulking hard anymore .. i think you'll put on the same amount of muscle eating 500 cals over maintance as you will eating 2500 cals over .. i think you'll put on a lot more fat and water but the body can only put on so much muscle at a time ... so at once point it just plateaus at a rate of muscle building while fat and water can still be taken on .. at least that's how it works for me

    and thanks for complimenting the tat

    Could be, as I really don't have a good reason to say that. I remember Shawn Phillips saying abs become visible at about 10%. Your abs are clearly visible. Regardless, great shape, and if that is 12% I'd be happy to be there.

    I see abs above 10%.. I see abs all year long and I know I don't keep around 10% for all of it. I don't think you can really place a definitive general percentage for that one.

    Yeah I can usually see my abs or atleast a faint outline of them even when I'm sitting above 12%. Most people think their 5-6% when they have abs and I just laugh. I show them pictures of pro's and say that's 5% biatch. See those striations in that mofo's glutes, yeah that's 5%.

    I usually just read here at AM, but bf is a pet peeve of mine... You and Glen are right. This time last year, I was looking very lean. Many people around me thought I was at 7-8%, but I thought I was around 10% or so. I went to get measured at a BodPod and the results were suprising - 11.5%. I had a visible eight-pack.

    Just like some people can gain a bit of weight and it all (seemingly) goes to a certain part of their body, some people can have great visible abs at higher bodyfats.

    I'm at no less than 13% now and I still have the outline and can pull them into a 6-8 pack.

    btw Glen - that's a badass tattoo.
