Let me know how it goes for you! It is part of a 3-day split done twice a week from one of Arnold's books. If you are interested in this style of high sets / supersets , I can give you the full workout!

I have been refining my workout over the past 4-6 weeks and found one that seems to be working really well for me. I am 3 weeks away from my next progress photo so I am pushing really hard to get my diet and workouts in check.

I am still going to the gym 6-7 days a week, and loving every second of it. I watched a Youtube video of C.T Fletcher talking trash about "overtraining", and choose to believe him ( for now ) haha.

Anyways, since my routine has been changing it has been hard to document my progress, but I will show some 1 MR changes thus far.

Bench Press:
When I started in November of 2012, I could BARELY push up 95lbs on the bench. I wouldn't say that was max, but pretty damn close. As of today, February 26, 2013, my max is about 180lbs. I feel like I could probably do 5-10lbs more if I did it earlier in my routine, but that hasn't happened. My WORKING sets are from 140-160 usually.

Deadlift:
I avoided doing these at the beginning to avoid injury due to bad form or weak core muscles. But when I did try, I had a hard time lifting 115lbs. I still haven't tried a MAX because again I don't want to hurt myself, but I am doing working sets of 8-10 reps at 205lbs.

I will try and work some more max reps out this week and compare to my first few weeks.

So I hit a new max in flat bench on Saturday. 202lbs x 2 . I am confident in hitting 210 this week!

Also, progress pics are coming this week! Can't wait to see progress !

Huge day for me yesterday on the bench! 2 PLATES!! (225lbs).

Seriously, less than 4 months ago, I was struggling to put up a pair of 35lb plates more than 5 time. And now I am pushing 225lbs for 2 reps just for good measure.

I have a feeling I could have got another rep or two if I did it earlier in my workout. Will push for 2 plates and a 5 on each side this week.

WOO! This was the biggest rush for me at the perfect time this week. Work has been extremely busy/stressful and this made it all better.

Now you can take that confidence into the next sessions, and before you'll know it a couple of plates a side will be almost lightweight!

How's your weekend, what are you up to?
