I usually take progress pics and some quick measurements before and after. The mirror can be very tempting and deceiving sometimes so I don't rely on it when measuring my 'true' size gains, I still use it though.

I don't think I saw any noticeable size til the last meso cycle and after the program was finished.

Todays workout

Leg Press [2] 380
SL Curl [1] 60
Flat Bench [2] 235
Incline DB [1] 70
S. Shoulder Press [1] 145
EZ Bar Curl [1] 95
RG Pressdowns [1] 140
WG Pulldowns [2] 180
CG Rows [1] 225
Calves [2] 200

Man I felt real strong today. Especially when I saw this big guy struggling with 225lbs. But anyways I got 2 more days left of the 8-10 then off to 4-6's. I'm already at my max for a few of the exercizes. And right on target for the rest. I kept the CG Rows at the same weight as last time cause the machine jumps up to 240 and I'm not ready for that weight yet. I couldn't find the little 5lb add on they have so I just kept it as is. Plus that was my max in the beginning. Hopefully Fri. I can jump up to 240. I like this program though, in and out in 45min.

Here's yesterdays workout

Leg Press [2] 395
SL Curl [1] 70
Flat bench [2] 245
Incline DB [1] 80
S. Shoulder Press [1] 155
EZ Bar Curl [1] 105
RG Pressdowns [1] 150
WG Pulldowns [2] 190
CG Rows [1] 235
Calves [2] 200

Well yesterday was the last day of the 8-10's now I can move on to the final 2 weeks. I'm gonna add some shoulder shrugs and weighted dips to the last 2 weeks. I feel that I could use some extra shoulder and tricep work. Also gonna get rid of incline db and replace it with decline db. The cg rows I'm gonna go back to the cables, I felt I got more out of the cables vs the machine. I guess it's time to start thinking of what program to run after this. I would like to get a little more size before I start cutting for the summer. Anyone got any suggestions???

Here's how todays workout went

A2G Squat [2] 205
SL Curl [1] 75
Flat Bench [2] 250
Decline DB [1] 80
S. Shoulder Press [1] 160
Shrugs [1] 270
Barbell Curl [1] 85
Cable Pressdowns [1] 110
Dips [1] BW
WG Pulldowns [1] 190
CG Rows [2] 180
Calves [2] 270


Today was the first day of 4-6rps. I felt real good today. I added shrugs to get some extra shoulder work, decline db to hit my lower pecs, and dips for some extra tricep work as well. I'm gonna have to go buy a dip belt, so I can add some weight to my dips, before my next workout.

Alright here is yesterdays numbers

Squat [2] 225
SL Curl [1] 80
Flat Bench [2] 255
Decline DB [1] 85
S. Shoulder Press [1] 165
Shrugs [1] 290
Barbell Curls [1] 90
Cable Pressdowns [1] 120
Dips [1] BW+30
WG Pulldowns [2] 200
CG Rows [1] 190
Calves [2] 280

Man my legs were killing me from Mondays workout. I switched from leg press last week back to squats and I can definitely tell the difference. I was never this sore with the leg press'. I'm liking the squats alot more. I had a little trouble pushing out 6 rps with the bench press I think I'll take a little more rest time between the two sets next time. This rep range is my favorite out of the three. It feels good to push up some big numbers. Or at least big for me.

Yeah stairs can be a bitch after a hard leg workout, even getting off the shitter can be a challenge sometimes. I was supposed to go to the gym tonight but it looks like I'm going to the doctors instead. I twisted the fuck out of my ankle at work today, now its swollen and can't put any pressure on it. I just hope it's all better by monday at least. I reall don't want to miss too many days in the gym.

Well I went to the doctors yesterday and atleast my ankle isn't fractured but I have one hell of a sprain. Now I have to figure out what to do with my HST program. I was just finishing up the first week of the 4-6's. I'm gonna be outa commision for at least a week. Hopefully I can go back to the gym next Monday. But I don't know if I'll be able to do any squats by that time. Should I take the week off and just pick back up where I left off?? Or should I do another week of SD and start the program all over again??? Continuing the program where I left off after a week off kinda seems like going against the whole principal of a progressive load. Anyone got any suggestions?? This whole thing just sucks donkey balls!!!!!!
