How did you feel? Did you feel a big difference? Doing that type of tempo ensures you work your fast twitch fibers (which are the biggest) while you work the slow twitch with the higher reps. I don't think you need to go lower than 5 because that would be geared more for strength. I think a good progressive load sequence would be 10,8,6,6,4 ect. instead of 8,7,6,5,...

It felt really awk at first to be honest. I have always been training with an extremely slow movement, which in the past worked for me. But I will keep on doing this, my weight is falling gradually, I think its a loss in body fat. My diet is a lot cleaner, and im stricter on nutrient timing.

Soreness is about the same, maybe slightly more. Its really too soon to tell, I have hit every muscle once with this tempo and routine. I just have to keep on trying.

I actually follow a more progressive load sequence, I must not have been thinking clearly after all it is 3 am.

Since I am following the 3-0-1 ratio weights have increased dramatically and reps and set have fallen. I will keep this up longer and see how it goes. After all I wasnt making any more gains with my old routine so I will see how this goes.


Thanks for all your help

sorry hrdgain, last night was a late night and didnt proofread.

What I mean was I count to three on my eccentric movements, pause for 0 seconds then on the concentric use an explosive motion of 1 second.

I'm saying it should be a tempo of 3 seconds down, as soon as it touches your chest, explode up. (3-0-1)

Hey Slayer, glad you started this journal lots of good information here. I just want to say don't get discouraged, 190lb @ 5'8'' is damn good and putting on more mass naturally may take some time. Hopefully the new training routine will bring you results. I myself am attampting a clean bulk and I think for results I also have to change and refocus my training and I may try a routine similar to yours. I am wondering, do you do the excersises in the order you listed them? Do you do supersets at all? Approximatly how long do you rest between sets? I would greatly appreciate it of you could answer these questions. Good luck man, glad to see the journal and looking forward to hearing of your progress.

I really hope that this training routine will help bring up some more results. I am loosing a bit of weight now, due to exams but once I am done May 5, I will live bodybuilding. I will move into an apartment there and will finally be able to cook my own food and can start a proper bulk. Right now I am living on RES so food choices are limited. Its extremely frustrating weight hasnít increased in well over a month!

I wish you luck on your clean bulk and keep us updated on your progress.

I do my exercises in the order that I listed them. I sometimes like to superset arms but I donít think that worked for me I usually just incorporate drop sets. I normally rest about 2-3 mines for the bigger muscles and 1 min for the smaller muscles.
