  1. Well, I like the way it feels. I usually have a *bit* of trouble properly walking up my stairs right afterwards. During the workout, I feel my lower back doing its job (mostly during the front squats), it gets a bit tired by the end (which is why I put leg press at the end to go super heavy on), but feels a lot better by the time I get to my car, and is not noticable 1 hour after working out. I like this split a lot, although I do wish I had 5 days to lift, but hey, you gotta work with what you got right?

  2. Exactamundo! Gotta do with what you have. I find I have to work real light weight with higher reps to get a workout that doesn't end 5 minutes into it. it's embarassing when you're throwing around pretty good weight upper body and squatting 225. But I do with what I can.

  3. I understand that. I know that people on this board understand that Form and Saftey come before Weight (to prevent injuries etc.), but it is truly amazing how many people out in the "real world" don't seem to understand this... And ever since I've started to lift at the YMCA, I have learned that this problem isn't only with "kids" or "Young Adults" even seniors can (and will) do some really stupid things when it comes to weightlifting. I really wish that more people would realize that NOBODY cares how much you lift, or how many times you lift it... but they will get annoyed if you grunt and scream with every rep!

  4. looking good bro.. look forward to your progress. Keep this one going.

    I've never had a spotter either.

  5. Weekend update... Didn't get any "real" cardio in unless you count running around for 30 minutes in a lazer tag game (I won!), and chasing 2 little kids (2 and 3 years old) around a park, playing catch, and just trying to keep them from sprinting into a damn lake... for about 2 hours. Man... now that was some cardio...

    Weighed in this morning at 260! I had to check the scale 3 or 4 times because I couldn't believe it. I felt like I was holding water last week, but I didn't think I'd drop 10 lbs including the water this week! This tri-lean sytem *really* works. I am never hungry (and this is very strange to me), I have to remember/force myself to eat. Hyperdrive really wakes me up in the morning (even 1), and Lean Dreams really get me into a good sleep (I feel dang good after 6 hours, even if that's all I get each night for a week so far). Thumbs up to this stack.

    Monday:
    -5 minute warmup on bike(#)
    -Deads
    *100x10, 100x12
    -BO BB Row

  9. How do you like starting your chest with Flyes?

    Your tris must have been fried at the end huh? cables get HARD if I leave them for last.

  10. I am actually liking it. I feel that it allows me to get more of my pecs involved in the bench since I can't take the bar down into full extension when doing a BB bench. It isn't effecting my flat bench all that much it seems. I really don't *care* what I bench right now, I don't do the flyes to total failure, and I only approach failure on the Flat bench. I would rather hit total failure on the incline press or the dips, since I won't get caught under a bar.

    Yes... by the end, my tris are completely fried, and lord did the random program on the bike have it out for me yesterday...

  13. I'd throw in at least another Hammy move in that puppy to get those suckers worked over.

    I dig that you incorporate Front Squats, it's a underrated exercise.

  14. What would you suggest for hammies? I don't want to do goodmornings (no safe place really), and I am not a huge fan of the hamstring curl machine... I also think that my hams are a lot stronger than my quads already... But I'm still learning (probably always will be).

    Yes, the front squats are BRUTAL... I do them with a closer stance than my normal squats (more like an oly lifter), and they really kill..

  15. I like the leg curls or variations of... single kneeling leg curl.. etc.
    But if you don't like them, that's cool. I just noticed you have a lot of primarily pressing exercises and only one hammy.

  16. I'll hit them like that, I was figuring that my relatively wide stance for my normal squats (and semi-wide for leg press) would help with that.

  17. we have a few different leg curl stations, and one in which you kneel at and curl with one leg.. it's brutal at high weights.. you feel your erectors come into play.

    I like higher reps on the laying leg curls.

    You do recruit them in your compound presses, but I'm sure you'll feel more of a general "worked" feeling if you work on them in a more balanced fashion. That's just my experience.

    GHR's are a *****, I'm working myself up to using them in my rotation.. short munchkins like Glen can get away with them.

    balance is something I am fond of these days. Although I think you are bringing up a good point, to work on your weaknesses.

    I think my quads and hams/glutes are at par with one another now because of that.

  18. You could try sumo leg press as well, where you your feet are up on the platform and you push with the heels. Basically, at the bottom position your knees are very close to your shoulders. I did them for the first time on my current rotation and I couldn't walk for 2 days, your inner thighs will be fried. Those leg curls have been a waste of time for me.

  19. UBI: what's a GHR.... I know I'll probably say "doh!" when ya tell me, but.. I'm drawing a complete blank..

    machinehead: If I only had a platform...

    not to be confused with hypers.

  21. Weekend update:
    It sucked... Lotsa crazy **** came up and I was only able to hit the bike for 30 minutes on Friday.

    Monday weigh-in: 260 (still...)
    Monday:
    -5 minutes warmup on bike
    -Deadlifts
    *100x10, 120x10
    -BO BB Row
    *90x10, 115x6
    -Oly curl
    *50x10, 65x8
    -Assisted Chins (lifted)
    *100x12, 120x7
    -Hammer Curl
    *25x8, 35x5
    -45 deg row
    *80x12, 105x10
    -Rear Delt Flyes
    *80x12, 95x10

    It is strange that my weight hasn't gone down, because just over the last week I have had to tighten up my belt a notch to keep my damn pants up!!! I am also noticing a *tiny* bit more definition, so I don't know what the f*ck is going on really. No quitting here though!

  22. maybe you're recomping, which of course is ideal.

  23. throw your scale out the window ... weight is so worthless ... it has so much to do with when you last ate, how much water you're holding, whether or not you've taken a dump .. just go by the mirror or your measurements

    hell since the end of august i've dropped at least 2-3% of my bodyfat but my weight hasn't changed at all

  24. I agree with that glen... I just figured it is an "easy" way to track things... I do try and weigh at the same time each week. In the early morning after the dump/piss when I'm feeling a *bit* dehydrated. But my life has been pretty chaotic right now and I tend to get dehydrated over the weekends and hold water mon-wed.... *shrug*

    Tuesday:
    -5 minute warmup on bike
    -DB pec flyes
    20x10, 25x10
    -Flat bench
    130x10, 160x6
    -Incline DB
    *40x12, 45x9
    -Dips
    *Chest: 100x8, 110x6
    *Triceps: 100x6
    *I then waited for someone to stop using the 1 ez-bar to do "reverse-grip power cleans" (full-body curls...), got pissed/bored and did another set of tricep dips for 12 reps at 100 pounds lifted
    -Skull crushers
    *40x12, 50x10
    -Immediately did 10 reps of cg press with 50 lbs from skulls
    -Cable Triceps
    *50x15, 60x10
    -20 minutes cardio on bike (was pressed for time)

    70x12, 90x8
    -Shrugs
    *12x200, 10x240
    -2 sets of rotator cuff exercises

    I left after this because I was tired, the gym was way too crowded and I was pressed for time. I just can't stand waiting around to do things because some f*cktard is flapping their jaw and trying to show off for a girl or his buddies...
