Quick update,

I've now training almost exclusivity in cluster/block set fashion (rest pause), 10-20 second bouts of activity, followed by 10-20 second rest pauses, i finding am better able to produce a deeper level of fatigue within a given muscle better than the traditional one set to failure associated with H.I.T.

Within each cluster/block i'm integrating different hypertrophy specific techniques (1 1/2 reps, zone training, tri-angular training, occlusion etc) to produce a different effect on the given muscle. My workouts are just as brief, however they are more dense, how much i lift is now fully in the back seat (albeit still of importance).

Over the last year my focus has been on hypertrophy specific training, but for the up and coming year i'm going to be implementing some different training methods. I've always been into martial arts, so am going to salt in some martial arts training and power/explosive training (farmers walk, tire flipping, power slide etc). I guess this year i lost sight of some other important aspects, ie athleticism, explosive power, function etc.

Today's workout...

1. Seated Leg Press 250kgs - in 3 rep cluster set fashion
2. Power slide - 140kgs - 6 runs (about 20 meters per run, with 30 second rests between runs)
3. Stiff Legged DL - 100kgs - in 3 rep cluster set fashion

Didn't need to train calfs, they were very fatigued from the power slide, enjoyed using it, different:)

LOL, i couldn't budge half the tonnage he does, i think he weighs 36st these days. Word round the camp fire is he's organizing arm wrestling contest open to the public at Easter in a shopping center in my home town, apparently some farmer won it last year, he went on to win the all Ireland title. Its something i'd love to try, but I've no experience and wouldn't know were to start to find a coach.

Hey dude, was looking for a little advice, do you reckon it's worth doing one armed dumbbell deadlifts? I don't have access to my barbell anymore and I realised I could get more weight in the lift switching to one armed DB deads.
Thought I would ask as I know how knowledgeable you are! Anyways thanks in advance and hope everything's cool your side of the water :)

Hi Ross,

Yes mate, i used to use them myself a few years ago, their easier on the lower back, takes ya to have big D-B's. I started using them when i watched this video of MMA fighter Jeff Monson using them...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAE9l8LyRSM

Hope this helps mate
