How does the new workout look? You're not doing only deadlifts and bench presses right? I mean Beach 2009 is about biceps and abs you know :wink:

Trainingcycle 75 min which resultet in a weight of 82.7kg. So no weightloss this week but probably because a lack of cardio and some overfeeding on my fabulous lasagna :twisted:

now a question for you. why the behind neck press? never had any problems with your shoulders there? mine would probably kill me if i would do the shoulder press behind the neck.

On Tuesday it's only bp, dl and abs yes. Abs I'm doing every workout and my arms will get some trainings on my second workout of the week I think. But hey my arms getting alot of punishment when I am doing rows, benchpress etc and my abs gets killed by the deadlift and squats.

Basically my next three weeks will be

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Pass A

Bench press 6,5,4,10-15
dead lift 6,5,4,10-15

Total 8 work sets

Pass B

superset 1
Pull ups 6,5,4
Seated shoulder press front 6,5,4

superset 2

Ez-Bar biceps curl 6,6
Barbell Bench Press Close grip 6,6

Total 10 work sets

Pass C

Barbell rows reversed grip
Squats

8 work sets

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

All my workouts build around these exercises just with variation. Like the shoulder press is front this time and last three weeks it was behind now I am doing pull ups instead of chin ups etc. This works when I was new In the gym I did like 18-20 worksets per workout and I only got overtrained so this works better for me. I am also very strict with my repetitions never use forced reps etc.

Well when I am seated I never use the backboard of the bench I am sitting on and I am also use a free barbell and not smithmachine. I think most people got a problem with this exercise since they either got problems with their rotator cuffs and therefore should not do it or the using backboard a smithmachine and to much weight.

But as a said earlier I do variation of the exercises and this three weeks I will do them in front.

Comments: Was tired today my and stomach has been pretty bad all weekend and my food was hardly optimal either. But I did go through the workout and only failed at the second bp set so I pretty satisfied. Honestly I am on a diet and all increases in weight should be considered a success so I am not complaining. Also the deadlift is also easier when it is not paired with squats.

Progress pics will have to wait until summer probably, not much to see atm a small fat white nerd :D . If my stomach was fully functional I would probably do a 8 week period of creatine with the following dosage.

Week Daily intake (Grams)
1 10
2 20
3 30
4 40
5 40
6 30
7 20
8 10

It was a couple of years since I last used it so the effect would probably be pretty good. I liked that version of the dosage better than the classic loading phase and 5g each day but thats me. The downside with taking creatine on a diet is that I will look even fatter with all the fluids.

Comments: Still some pain in my shoulder and my biceps was pretty fried since Thursdays workout. Took it easy on the squats and can probably increase some weight next time. An ugly guy asked my gf out at the gym which was pretty funny :popcorn:, she was not pleased with that. Now it's time for some food and then going to a friends house to hang out before UFC 95.

Have done some cardio this week but haven't written any notes about it. But today i did 45min on the bike together with my laptop and the amazing race and after that my weight was 81.2kg.

But today I also started with creatine so my weight will probably not reduce that much for the upcoming weeks.
