Yeah, I'm going to try :)

I have a hard time keeping up with it, but that is my intent eventually :)


So have you worked out in the past 6 days? I'd assume you have. I think I'm going to bug you about posting your workout journal on a regular basis to make sure you stick to your bulking plan. Come on man, get big! Post the path to the results in here!

Regards,

Sensless

I had a great workout yesterday, you can read about it in the fitness training section.

Someone wrote about it for me :)

Yeah, I have about 10 things on a plate that holds 4, so I can't get everything done. I am still training, just haven't made the time to write about it.

But I will "try" soon.

I'm training back tonight with stove6 from the forum, visiting from Texas.

I just like to give you a bit of the business. I noticed the training mention in the other thread after posting that. You hit 275x3 on bench! That's a huge change, weren't you maxing around 250 or so not that long ago?

I'm terrible at keeping training logs updated. If you look at mine on VF ever you may notice the terrible jumps in dates, though sometimes they are due to long layoffs because of life interfering with training it is mostly due to failure to take the five minutes to update the log.

Regards,

Sensless

I didn't actually hit 275, I think it was 225 for 5 reps or something like that. We were changing weights around so it may have been tough to keep track of. I was doing some hammer strength machine with 275, which could be what stove is referring to.

But either way, I feel pretty strong these days.

This week I trained:

Saturday: Arms
Sunday: Back
Monday: OFF
Tuesday: Chest/Shoulders
Wednesday: Back
Thursday: Legs

I'm training about an hour each time, doing just about 4 exercises and usually 3-5 sets. I go to failure on nearly every set, which makes it tough.

I'm also taking Vega about 3 times a day, as well as some glutamine, a bit of creatine, and some other things (multivitamin and stuff like that).

So hopefully I'll get beyond this silly 4% bodyfat and get in double digits!

I'll try to keep a more detailed log. I have time, I just don't do it for some reason.

Keep up the work. I found the easiest way to gain weight is to eat, then eat, then eat some more. Then once in awhile, hit a bunch of compound movements and carry weights around, then follow it with more eating. The 1500 calorie meal before going to sleep seems to help as well (especially with recovery times).

Regards,

Sensless

I had a nice arm workout last night. I'm starting to train hard again and on a regular basis.

I started with high pulley bicep contractions maybe 4 or 5 sets of those.

Then I went to two-arm cable bicep curls for about 6 sets (I love those!).

After that I did some dumbbell hammer curls for about 4 or 5 sets and then a few more cable curls with drop sets.

I hit up the lower back a bit too (just to get it stronger) in between bicep exercises.

I trained triceps mostly with variations of rope pull-downs (push-downs), extensions, and some dips.

It was a good time. Then I ate a lot.

Time to go eat again, see ya.

I will try to get more detailed reports like I did years ago. Years ago, everything was logged. Every piece of food, and at what time, how many calories, protein, etc. I had months and months worth of charts. It was fun and interesting to see.

I should do it again soon!

I'm still at 4% bodyfat and leaner than I was in my last bodybuilding contest!!!!

So eating a lot isn't going as well as I'd hoped, but I am eating out a lot, so hopefully that will help.

I can still run about a 5:30 mile....now that is just silly for a bodybuilder.

Personally, I want to be strong, flexible, fast, have great endurance, etc - all at the same time!

Yeah, that is a great goal to shoot for. I somehow have all of it now, except for the flexibility. But I do have a friend who's into yoga and pilates :wink: so that might help me out.

Robert...you've gotta get big so finishing a mile is trouble...my coach always told me a shot putter should never be able to break 8 minutes even if he kills himself trying...meaning you've gotta focus on explosiveness more if you body is capable of running for that long...I personally know olympians that can't even finish a mile without walking

I trained Chest last night.

I started with flat bench:

Bar for 40 reps
135 x 15
135 x 15
175 x 6
195 x 5
215 x 5

Decline bench:
135 x 15
185 x 6
205 x 5
225 x 5

Pec-deck machine
110 x 15
130 x 12
130 x 12
100 x 12

That was it, but intense and good enough for me!

I'm try to keep workouts short, but intense and hardcore. Just a few exercises for 3-5 sets and then go eat!
