Last night was delts and arms. Normally I would train legs the day after chest and back but my back is still giving me a bit of trouble.
I went back to evening training, I prefer it as there is more of an atmosphere at my gym.
The workout was
Lateral raises 12kg x 20
20kg x 5 x 5
Standing military press 60 x 12
85kg x 3 x 6 sets
Incline bench rear delt flyes 18kg x 12 x 3 sets
Standing barbell curls 35kg x 6 x 5 sets - I went a little lighter than usual, I think it works a bit better, normally I heave up 50kg or so but think I may staywith the lighter weight for curls for now.
Dumbell skullcrushers 22kg x 8 x 5 sets - I throw them a bit like darts, similar kind of movement, quite explosive
Standing ez bar curls 35kg x 8 x 3 sets - again a little lighter but felt it work better and my arms pumped up a lot more.
Skullcrusher/closegrip superset 45kg x 8 x 3 sets - 8 reps for skullcrushers, 6-8 reps straight after for closegrips
Finished off with some leg raises 5 sets of 12
Diet for yesterday was a little better than previous day
Meal 1- Sunwarrior and blueberry shake - the chocolate flavoured protein goes really well with the blueberries. Added 10g of flax sprouts.
Meal 2- Lentil burger, beetroot chips (I just slice them thin and bake) alfalfa sprouts, 1/4 avocado
Meal 3- Raw food bar, the active greens flavour
Meal 4- Vege schnitzel, mixed salad, some dulse flakes and macadamia oil - strange mix but nice
Meal 5- Pre workout 15g BCAA, Biotest Superfood powder, 15g spirulina, 3g creatine, espresso
Meal 6- Post workout Vega packet (Thanks RC and Lean & Green) then juiced up some pineapple, orange and celery when I got home. Just got my new juicer so I've been making plenty of different combinations.
Meal 7- Lentil burger, small amount of taro- made it into chips so only had a few pieces, mung bean sprouts.
Before bed I snacked on some dulse leaves.
That was it for the day.
Do you feel you get a lot of benefits from taking BCAA during the day? I've been thinking about doing it for a while, that or EAA, but I don't really want insluin spiking through the roof.
I don't always use them throughout the day, my meals at the moment aren't very structured so I just carry a few supplies in my bag and make things as I go.
At this point in time I'm not too worried about the insulin levels going up because I'm not dieting but at the same time I'm not really having anything with them, maybe just some berries and stuff, so I'm not having a calorie surplus when my insulin levels are spiked throughout the day. Good point though
I love the goals in nums even if i did conversions in my head roughly; i should get better at it in my head. Anyone s/b able to post their logs in kg's and not succumb to u.s. dumb standards.
Sorry mate, I started counting in kg again now that I'm training with MVS, previously I was counting in lb's. It all gets confusing sometimes.
Chains rock! I never actually did them but i had every intention on it just ended my powerlifting spurt before i invested in them. Was going to buy massive ones at a boathouse but never got around to it. I'd like to hear more about your training with them. I know it works. http://www.westside-barbell.com
where i get alot of solid powerlifting info from. #1 powerlifting gym in the world imo and many others.
Back my weakest point. Chest is ok for me it could be alot bigger but it has good shape so i get away with smaller pecs. I still would like to build em up more. I have done an exorbitant amt in the past and now muscle memory keeps it together now that i'm training again.
That's where I got the idea from. My brother has used them in the past and got very strong from using them so I thought I'll give them a real go now.
Looking at your photos I think your chest is quite a strong bodypart for you.
