Have to say though, that this is the first time I've looked at your log, and your routine is crazy. Way too much. Thats all I can say.

And I agree with Jon of course :). I know you like the routine and dont want to change it, but I think the least you should do is keep your eyes very open for signs of overtraining.

Yeah, it may seem like a lot, but it's not for me. And it's working wonders! I have yet to be sore, I've put on almost 5 pounds already, and almost everyday someone comments on the changes they see in me. Bill doesn't understand it either: I should be crying in pain from the soreness that should be induced and I shouldn't be able to lift the weights I am able to lift in comparison to my size. It doesn't make any sense to me, either, but I'm not complaining! I tend to get better results when I totally kill the muscle, as opposed to doing a set routine with a certain number of reps/sets/amount of weight.

If I start to feel like I'm overtraining, I'll cut back... but so far, so good!

What's a straddle squat :D ?
How come you are doing so little hamstring work on leg day, do they have a day of their own :D ?

Straddle Squats are AMAZING!!! It feels a bit awkward and looks kinda weird, but it works parts of your legs that u didn't know u had!

Use a free-bar (Olympic Bar) with weight plates on both sides. Place the bar on the floor, between your legs. Grab the bar with an underhand (supinated) grip in front of your body with your right hand, and in back of you body with your left. The bar will naturally turn to the right side. Stagger your stance a bit so that your right leg is a bit more forward than your left. Squat for desired reps and switch hand position to work the other leg. You'll also work your arms, shoulders, back, and core with this exercise.... it's amazing!

As for my hams, they were worked as I was doing all my squats, so I did some isolation work for them at the end. My quads need more work than my hams do right now, so I'm putting more emphasis on my quads. I usually split quads and hams, sometimes do them together... it just depends. I agree that I needed to do more ham work, but i was getting tired and spent too much time there as it was... plus, I was getting hungry.... so I skimped on the hams a bit. It's ok tho... I'll kill 'em next time! ;)

Try the straddle squats though... they are awesome!!! I hope I described them well enough!

Hey!
Thanks for the concern! Everything is absolutely great... just been too busy to post any new workouts. I've put on about 10 pounds since my first entry and the weights I'm able to lift increase just about every workout! I can now leg press over 400 pounds for 10 reps. I'm very excited about my progress indeed! :)
