+1! I would suggest you don't click the option where they email you what offers are on though.. You get at least 1 email every single day and they're almost always offers on whey protein..

Back & Biceps workout today

1. Underhand Chins
BW - 15kgs of assistance x 7 reps + one static hold to failure

2. One Arm D-B Row
50kgs x 10 reps + 2 half reps to failure

3. Biceps Machine
85kgs x static hold to failure

That's all she wrote, a mere 9 minute workout. My trainer was unable to make today's workout, so i reduced the volume of the workout. I plan on using just 3-4 set workouts again, this seems to be my optimal, these 5-6 sets workouts I've been performing of late is not producing additional gains, if anything there just digging a deeper hole into my recovery. MM said volume was a negative factor, by jove he was right.

Due to being more tired from working longer hours this weather, me and my trainer both agreed it was best for me to stop at failure, as well as that, we've reduced my volume a little too.

LOL, not bad for a stoke victim with a dodgy kidney, irregular heart beat and herniated disc's:))

Strength has been up in leaps and bounds this last several weeks, managing the volume and frequency of the workouts is key, however most that try H.I.T either don't know how to do this or are ignorant to the fact and their progress grinds to a halt, and then of course they deem that H.I.T doesn't work.

Fancied a bit of full body training...

Tonight's workout

1. Seated Alternate Iso Leg Press
130kgs per leg x 9 reps per leg to failure

2. Underhand Pulldown
100kgs x 5 reps + 2 forced reps to failure

3. Hammer Chest Press
140kgs x 4 reps + 2 forced reps to failure

4. Chest Supported Row
120kgs x 7 reps + 2 forced reps

5. Smith Machine Shoulder Press
90kgs x 6 reps + 2 forced reps reps to failure

BBS big 5 workout, forgot how good full body training can be:) Trainer has suggested compound only movements one workout, isolation only the next (with a higher volume of movements).

Hi Ross,

Starting to reach the upper limits of my strength capacity, having a good trainer ta push me has really helped with my progress.

As i mentioned to Mike the other day, When you manage the intensity, volume and frequency of your training well, progress happens in leaps and bounds:)

Tonight's workouts was...

1. Seated Leg Presses (1 1/4 reps) 220kgs
2. Underhand Pulldown (1 1/4 reps) 80kgs
3. Hammer Chest Presses (1 1/4 reps) 115kgs
4. One Arm D-B Row (1 1/4 reps) 40kgs
5. Seated D-B Press (1 1/4 reps) 2 x 32.5kgs

each set was taken to failure...

The 1 1/4 method produced an a much greater level of congestion within the muscles, fairly low stress workout aswell, as lesser resistance was require. Next workout i might go with 3-5 reps cluster sets.
