    -My wrists got so raw on the 6th set of shrugs that I had to drop down to 100lbs.
    -I had an extreme lack of energy at the end of the workout, more specifically between the 2nd and 3rd set of preachers and by the 8th set, I just gave up. I feel like a *****.

    Sorry BJ, but I think you're weird too. Perhaps you should start doing what I do before I go lifting: poop.

    at your age you still have the opportunity to expand your chest cavity some. Pullovers and with a good stretch at bottom and drawing air into chest.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I'll make sure to throw those in in a few weeks...after I'm done with this...

  17. So I've been following along, but I just got around to really looking at this routine...Clever but very unorthodox. I know It's only been about two weeks now, but what are your impressions so far?

  18. Monday's workout
    (30 seconds)

    Inc BB Bench:
    185 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 6, 4, 4

    DB Military Press (seated, no back):
    55 x 8, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4

    Dips:
    BW + 45 x 8, 8, 8, 7, 5

    Flat Fly:
    60 x 8, 7, 5

    Side Laterals:
    40 x 8, 8, 8

    CG Bench:
    155 x, 8, 7, 5

    Hanging Leg Raises:
    12, 12, 12, 12

    - Form on the side laterals was good, but the final 2 reps in the last set need to come about a inch higher to reach parrallel.

  19. My overall impression of this is that I am walking around pumped all day. My legs and back are being worked harder than they ever have an are responding amazingly.

    I like this routine a lot but I don't think it will be benificial to run it longer then 8 weeks or so.

  20. Any normal mortal would become taxed after a few months of that... PH knows what he's doing though... You and Nate are both responding great. Don't get chincy with your form on the laterals near the end.. when using 40's, you're bound to have some english or stall out in the later reps near the end sets unless you're johnny jackson.. (who uses lots of english by the way so disregard that. )

    it's good to be on point with form though. I think with this routine you're going to start to break form considering the volume and rest periods. It's inevitable.

    I guess what I'm saying in so many words is nice ****in' job PI.

  21. Looks like you've got a killer program going on. The pump must be insane.

    BTW, I'm really glad that I haven't seen anyone cautioning against overtraining.

    I'm definately along for the ride and interested in your results.

    Are you going to do any progress/before&after pics?

  22. Ubi, thanks for the words of encouragement. But even though the high volume might make someone move more towards bad form, I still want every set to be perfect form on every rep, ya know? I's just rather I hit parrallel on all the reps next time.

    Bill, I didn't snap any before pics but I can sure as hell post some after pics at the 8 or 10 week mark...whenever I decide to switch things up.

  23. Tuesday's Workout:
    (30 seconds)

    Squat:
    255 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8

    Seated Leg Curl:
    225 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 8 ,8 ,8 ,8

    Closed Stance Hack Squat:
    230 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8

    Calf Raises: Seated Machine Leg Press (415lbs)
    30on,30off,30on,30off,30on

    Swiss ball crunches:
    40, 40, 50

    I hit all of my lifts today...sweet!

  24. That leg workout made me sick to my stomach.....thats gonna hurt lol.

    30on,30off,30on,30off,30on
    what does this mean?

    you prefer squats to leg presses?

  25. I love leg presses and mine was getting pretty decent about a month ago...i think it was close to 1300lbs for 6 to 8 reps...

    But this is more based on compound movements and squats are a much better compound movement.

    I meant 30 seconds doing calf raises, 30 seconds break...etc...
