The Consistency PRGRM.
 
The following workout is designed to hit both strength and a decent amount of volume (endurance for when I sign back up to an MMA gym) within the 45-50 minute time frame before cortisol levels raise again. I'll hit my major muscle groups twice a week with this program and heavy compound movements will be utilized for more testosterone activity. Wish me luck and I hope you enjoy following my progress.

Day 1 was great.

I had 2 eggs with cheese and sausage bits inside -_- a bowl of Raisin Brand and a piece of toast before my workout.

Day 1

Neck Presses 5x5
185x5, 225x5, 245x5, 225x5, 230x5

Incline DB Presses 3x8-10, 1x12-15

Overall a very intense workout considering I haven't lifted consistently for half a year. Great pumps on my upper pecks and my lats were throbbing. Had a glass of nitro-tech protein shake and a 6oz pepperjack steak with a side of potato's and a slice of pineapple. Waddup.

Day 2

Military Presses 4x8-10
95x10, 135x10, 155x8, 140x8

Squats 5x5
225x5, 275x5, 315x5, 335x5, 345x5
*my squats have jumped from barely doing 315x5 to 345x5 in a week and a half! feels great to be hitting heavy*

*this killed my lower back, i haven't had a lower back pump like that in awhile. safe to say my smoking is interfering way too much with my endurance.*

Calf Presses 4x20-25
*i stuck to using 185 the whole 4 sets to focus on the bottom stretch, great pump.*

overall a solid workout, terrible lower back pump and a happy squat day. in and out in 45 mins. not bad.

post workout, nitrotech shake, 3 bcaa pills and 1 lecithin pill with a 3 egg omelet.

Thanks man I try to keep it under an hour so my cortisol levels don't rise much and my test levels don't drop. I forgot to update you guys for days 3 and 4 but I'll continue on from day 1 when I go hit the gym on monday again. I just don't remember how I did a few days ago smh.

Also, I've been experiencing shoulder pain (right rear delt to be exact). Don't know from what... maybe neck presses? Though I didn't feel any pain from it after a week of doing them until last night. Maybe I slept in a weird position? Eh. Update on monday.

Pitysister 05-21-2010 01:42 PM

neck presses can be very rough on the rotator cuff....which is kind of an important part of your shoulder :)

hitsquaddd 05-21-2010 03:01 PM

yeah but i love em (mostly cause i can throw up more weight) but i'd rather switch over to DB pressing to save my shoulder.

Pitysister 05-21-2010 03:27 PM

that would be a prudent decision :)
