    I feel like my slow twitch muscle fibers are far better than they have ever been.

    I just hope my fast twitch are not suffering. Although with the way the routine is set up, I don't really see it being a factor.

    it is very beneficial, but you need to watch it if you are using high intensity... if you've ever been CNS burnt, you'll know what I mean.

    Monday's workout:
    (30 seconds)

    Incline Bench:
    185 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8

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

    Dips:
    45 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 5

    Flat Fly:
    60 x 8, 7, 5

    Side Laterals:
    45 x 8, 8, 6

    CG Bench:
    155 x 8, 8, 7

    Hanging leg raises:
    w/ 6lb med ball x 10 , 10, 10, 8...dropped the med ball x 8

    - I tried using a medicine ball for some added resitance for my leg raises but I just didnt like it, it wasn't the weight, it was the akwardness of it. I might try using a dumbell next time.

    - This workout wasn't much better than last week, improvements slowed considerably from week 4-5.

    Reason why I cycle it. I do it for a week and then off for two, just to keep things changed up.

    I am going to revaluate things after next week and decided to change it up or to keep going for another 2 weeks.

    Wedneday's Workout:
    (30 seconds)

    Deads:
    345x 8, 8, 6, 6

    BB Rows:
    185 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8...

    ...and down he went.

    I pulled something in my back. After talking to powerhouse 48, Ubiquitous and Beelzebub, I decided it was a good plan to take the rest of the week off and heal up.

    I'm still trying to decided whether to push out another 1-3 weeks of this routine or transition into a high weight, longer rest type of routine.

    Thoughts?

    I think you will find better results in a routine that you enjoy doing more.

    agreed. you have to love what your doing to truly push yourself where you want to be.

    Good luck with getting your back feeling better.

    btw...you probably don't need my input on weights/volumes/rest...as you know what that would be

    I am going to end this here...I'm doing maintenance for the next 2-3 weeks and then getting started on a DC routine. I am definitely going to run a log with it, as it definitely keeps me motivated and on track.

    Plus anyone that wants to learn about doggcrapp training can learn along with me, as it will be my first time with a rest pause, max failure type of workout.

    what do you mean by "a rest pause, max failure type of workout."? DC training from what i recall is mainly big lifts/compound exercises, the rest pause part has me confused. Ive thought of doing it too, many times but never have, maybe ill join you....

    good luck! Any reason for running 2-3 weeks maintenance instead of just 1 week before starting new routine?

    Yeah, I feel really homo when I shave my arms and legs for a comp. And then there's the awkward "leg-stubble" phase afterwards. I just tend to the hedges, I used to do the chest, but I somehow broke free of my chest stubbles reign. (For those of you who don't understand, shaving your chest is like smoking cigarettes, once you start it gets addictive)
