kev's training stuff

#1 Postby clark X kent » Thu Mar 22, 2007 7:41 am

So hey I deceided to make a blog. Why ? I want to keep my progressions or regressions visible.

So well let's see... I started working out exacltly 4 months ago. I was kinda getting bigger without lifting weight. I was working out on kung fu a lot as well. Those trainings are intense. I've got to be honest.. I'm putting all of my energy in the gym these days.

musketeer stye!

This is how I look NOW... after 4 months. I just took these pics :oops: .

Haha I don't look to happy, but hey I just got dressed and it was like 6:30 AM. I don't know if I look any good... or were I should focus on.

- I'm absolutely not satisfied about my arms and abs YET. arms could get LOADS bigger .. especially my triceps.

my abs need a hell amount of sit ups.

- I'm kinda happy about my traps and chest. My chest just developed pretty well cus i used to do more than 400 push ups a day ... Push ups rock :)

- My legs well, I've been skating for over 17 years they should be muscled by now :D I work on 'em a lot as well. Why ?

I LOVE leg exercises.


- my back ... needs a lot of work.


I don't take any supplements. Never really tried 'em and like I said before I'm kinda scared of 'em. I don't really know why[/img]

I made this with my uncle two days ago:


the kg's behind the exercise is what I lift on the last set.

dumbellpress 2 X 24 kg
flyes 17 kg
cable crossover 2 x 25 kg
flat benchpress 65 kg

incline pressdowns 25 kg
triceps extensions 12 kg
pulldown rope 15 kg
pressdown 20 kg


WEDNESDAY

Lat pulldown 75 kg
bentover row 75 kg

I lifted that yesterday ...


FRIDAY

bent over lateral raise 15 kg
front raise 15 kg

The kilograms here is what I lifted with the other program. We'll see what I lift tomorrow...


[ 10 - 8 - 6 - 6 on all ]

I could use some help with the program though. Johnathan said I needed to take out some chest exercises. Or at least that's what I understood :oops: I bet he's right, maybe I'm focusing on the beach muscles too much.

I'm 5 feet 8 inches , weigh 74,8 kg now. So I gained exactly 5 kg since I started four months ago. I don't know if that's good or not :?

My eating program is this ( and I REALLY need to work on that ):

10 am: 2 muesli bowls with soy milk

11 am: piece of fruit orange, kiwi, apple ...

Noon : 6 wheat sandwiches with peanutbutter, nuts, vegan spread etc...

2 pm: some fruit again

4 pm: soy yogurt low in fat + some sandwiches again

from 5:30 pm till 7 pm I'm in the gym !

7:30 pm : falafel, soy, tofu ... 5 potatoes and as much vegetables as possible.

10 pm : some dry wheat bread or nuts

You've got a pretty big upper body dude. Just a suggestion, maybe go a little heavier on the squats, you're strong so I bet you could do a lot more. Also heavier deadlifts are great for back devolpment (and pretty much everything else to) so they'd make a good addition. Good work though, looking great. :)

Yeah I think I'm going to lift some more with squats... They're fun as well :)

I'm kinda scared of deadlifts cuz I wrecked my back once when I started out in th ebeginning. but they go well now. So that will work as well if I think while I work out.

thank you for the advice and have a great day!!

A suggestion for deads and squats at higher weights, if you don't already:
In any movement, whenever you use heavy weight, you must "block."
1. Stick out your chest by taking a deep breath and filling your lungs with air like a ballon. In this way, you will stiffen your rib cage and prevent your upper torso from bending forward.
2. Contract all the abdominal muscles to increase intra-abdominal pressure so your shoulders are pulled back when you are in the top position of the movement.
3. Finally, contract the lower back muscles to arch your lower back and extend the spine.
These three simultaneous actions are called "blocking." Their function is to avoid rounding the back(or flexing the spine), which may cause a slipped disk if you work with heavy weight.
