all the best slayer.... nice to know so many ppl are setting up new journals :)
Today was a fantastic workout. The decline db presses significantly helped my lower chest development, which had always been my weakness. Pull downs with varied grips really helped target my entire back.
Great looking journal so far slayer. I think i'm gonna need to start incorperating DC streching into my bulking routines as well. I like the theory behind it, but i havent used it as of yet.
keep up the good work
The theory behind the stretches are great, just expect some judging eyes when you perform them. From stretching alone, my quads have responded very well in both size and detail. I am sure it is having a significant effect on the overall development of my physique.
Weight dropped to 174 after being sick now I managed to increase it to 178 at a lower bf percentage!
dude... DC Stretching is what has improved my trength gains man..! i jumped from 80 kg squats to 85 in 2 days..! and thats a PR... and i was sore when i did 85... but DC stretching does the trick...
Thursday: Lower 1
Barbell Curls: 2 x 6-10
Standing Reverse Curls: 1 x 12-18
A2G Squats: 5 x 5, Pyramid to max set (225 x 4)
Leg Press: 4 x 10-12 (8-9 plates 8-12reps)
Seated Ham Curls RP (150lbs 19 reps)
Calves: DC Style
Abs Work: 3 x 10
I swapped lower 1 with lower 2, since my training schedule last week was topsy turvy after recovering from my flu.
My arms are finally starting to respond, they have been my biggest weakness and training them with much lower volume but keeping reps high has really had a significant effect.
My main focus today was executing A2G squats will full ROM and control. I pyramided my weights up until I could only complete 4 reps at 255lbs.
Great to see your journal here, Slayer!
ir ur keeping the reps 8-10 its ok because these reps are supposed to be mainly for hypertrophy - which is what i think u want... however, reps like 12 and 15 for arms only give a huge "burn" and temporary "pump" effect.... this "pump" and "burn" effect will usually run out in a few hours so be careful...
i'm glad ur trying to cope with arms... everyone wants big arms... i have decent arms, they look "big" on me, but they arent strong at all.. its all the hard work of chins / dips :)
take care slayer and i'll drop by soon...
My arms never responded to less then 12 reps, hence why I chose to keep it greater. I am just playing around with the numbers to see what I respond to, today I kept it lower.
Tuesday: Lower 1
Incline Curls: 2 x 8-10
Hammers: 1 x 12-18
A2G Squats: 5 x 5, 225-235lbs
Leg Press: 4 x 10-12 9 Plates
Ham Curls RP 20 160lbs
Calves: DC Style
Abs Work: 5 x 10
Today, I planed to execute every exercise with full range of motion especially on A2G.
A2G I started of with the same weight I used last week, however I managed to perform them with no trouble whatsoever and for my last set I was doing 235 for 5 reps.
Leg Press I was able to use over 9 plates and maintained 12-15 reps another great improvement since last week.
