Pushing the barrier

#1 Postby VeganDude » Thu Sep 13, 2007 5:30 am

Ok, time to start a new log.

My training/eating has been pretty good lately, gaining size and strenght.
Currently doing a 4day split, 4days on, one of - mostly compound ex.
Also on top of that doing gtg style training, at the moment with bench press.
I'm planning on doing this gtg stuff for one excercise for 2 weeks on top of my workout, then a week without gtg, after that gtg again with a different ex. So trying to up the weight fast with the gtg and keeping/improving slightly with normal training. Hope that makes sence:)
