6 Sets, ATG Squats.
3 Sets including 3 Forced Dropsets, Leg Press.

Well, Killed it for Quads. Drop Sets on Leg Press, I was nearly using all Triceps on these by the last sets trying to help my Quads handle the load at hand. This was one of those days, where I was so focused and Determined to perservere, that I was unleashing a Powerful Vibe to Everyone around that area. I was already, heavy in sweat after Squats, the near death, depth of them was nearly killing me on every Repetition. I nearly took 20 minutes loading up, and setting up a SLDL setup, and ended up not doing it anyways when 5 reps with 315 was difficult from my lower back being destroyed previously. Good day though, by any means.

Well, for the Past two days, I've been down with the sickness. A very small case of food Poisoning, last time about 4months ago, it lasted for two weeks. Luckily, Im feeling much better today which is a Relief. Still havent eatin, since 12PM yesterday. Going to Hit up my pectorals, and some Calfs tonight. Stay Tuned.

Asked the lord to help me tonight in the Gym, I was feeling Rough, no muscle strength, and running on empty, even after medication my stomach to this moment is giving me horrible Cramps. Sent out a prayer, and it was answered. I rowed through it like any normal performance day (as in dedication wise, not weight wise). One Minute Breaks and the works. Kept it rolling Steady. Wanted to do alittle more on Pectorals, but my main Priority is Triceps. So, Thursday, I want my Close Grip to be at a maximum along with Weighted Dips. Great Pump on Calf Raises, Actually hadto give some time in-between sets, to let them flow down, was really pushing myself on these, Great Form, and a Great amount of Reps.

Flat Bench Press: Two Initial Warmup Sets, Four Working Sets, Ranging from 315-225.
Machine Incline Press:Four working sets, Including two Dropsets.
Smith Machine Incline Barbell: Three Working Sets, Dropsets included. Range 235-185.
Leg Press Calf Raises: One initial Warmup, Five Working Sets. 20-30 Repetitions, 3-5 Plates.

The_Beast
04-15-08, 10:56 pm
5 Sets, Leg Press Calf Raises. 3-6 plates. 20-30 Reps.
3 Sets, Alternative Seated Calf Raises. 3 plates. (While waiting for the pretty boys that do nothing but Half Assed Cable Fly's to leave the Chin Station, Its on the Multi-Cable Machine. So, Yes, I did call three weeks in Advance.)

Weighted Wide Grip Chinups. 45LB+BW, 5/8-12 Rep Sets. Included, Bodyweight forced sets.
Barbell Rows. 225x12x3, 275x8x1. (not much weight, hands were ripped/blown out)
T-Bar Rows:3-4 Plates, 2x8/15. (Hands, giving me trouble. Really Focusing on Form, like usual.)

Tried my Barbell Curls, 145lbs were intensily Easy, but my wrists started tearing with pain again on my 8-9th rep. havnt worked out biceps in 2.5-3 months for that reason. Working on my 185 Average Barbell Curls or even 135lbs for 30, next week like previously before.

To Finish it off,
2 Sets Standing Calf Raises, Machine. 250lbs. 15-20 Reps.

Then I was out. Good Day. Trained with my Friend, so went alot better than usual. Like training with him, but his job makes it near impossible with his work hours. Im Leaving work, when He is usually going to work. But Im going to call it a night. Stay Strong Bro's.

Went to School this morning, walked out of my first period before class started and drove back home to throw up, and the like. Rough, could be the least to describe myself this morning. Still down with the sickness, even after feeling "alright" yesterday. Im feeling better now though, after 3hrs of sleep and alittle nutrtition.. Hopefully, With the Good Lords Help I will be alive and well, for my Heavy Tricep and Deltoid Training tomorrow. Food Poisoning, no way around it. Off to work. Stay Strong.

Went to the gym, lifted on some shoulder press and close grip. After one set on each, I just went on to calfs. My Tendons are soo destroyed from my back day, I could barely pick up the 45. 185 on the Seated Barbell Shoulder press felt like 275. 225 on the close grip was feeling like 315. So, end of story, I couldnt properly focus on the muscle group at hand when I was like this.

Seated Calf Raise:
1 initial warmup, 5 sets. 90,90,115,105,90. 10-20 Rep Scheme.

I know what you mean. Been so fatiqued from my mondays legs and chest session that i was just not able to keep rythm and form. 120kg deadlifts made my head spin because i had rubber legs to work with. Think you made a wise decision on focussing on other parts. I decided to grind it out but it did not make for a great workout.
Keep going strong, Beast!

Well, Went to the Gym today. Couldnt even lift 315 on the benchpress, went 3/4 way up with alot of strain from the rotator. Abandoned it right then and there, no reason to hurt myself again. was alittle dissapointed because I do it every week literally with ease. Im still shooken' up from that insane Grad Bash party, and I feel that was the cause of it. All In All, didnt lift except for Four Sets of Leg Press Calf Raises, with 10 Plates total for 20 reps. Went running, for cardiovascular instead. Lifting will now be three days a week and Cardio four. Ill post the new schedule on wednesday.

The_Beast
04-30-08, 11:12 pm
Ran 4 miles, Up-Down hill in around 40 minutes. 10 minute miles average. (that was including a 3 minute halftime break.) Still alittle slow. But hey, at 5ft 9" 200lbs, and not doing cardio since summer. Im doing pretty well. Im in great shape, dont get me wrong, just not cardiovascular wise. yet.

On another note. Took my Asvab for the U.S. Army today. Scored a 67. Not the Highest Score Obviously, but not taking or even looking at any type of Math or Science in a year, its decent. Anything above a 50 is pretty good. My job aplication, Army Ranger. Im waiting currently for a position to open, in the Infantry Division. Im not signing, unless I get that I will be attending the Ranger school (trying out) after basic in my contract. So, all in all, im training like a fucking man on a mission.

"My Sweet Shadow."-In Flames.

Time to log in again. Leg, abs, and calf Day. Damn, I'm Tired. 85* Florida Weather, with 100% Humidity doesn't help either. Just for the Record, all my Squat Numbers might seem low. Thats because I actually Squat low. Its not a Recorded Rep, Unless its below 90*, rock bottom. I was squatting 405 for 8-12, above parrallel (regular persons squat) if that tells you anything. My workouts might seem, Un-Characteristic because Im Training for what Im Doing. Army Infantry, Then, On to Airborne/Ranger School. Im doing alot of Cardio, so Breaking up my Hamstrings and Quads completely is out of the question.

Barbell Squats:
135x5
225x3
315x5
275x8
275x8

*The Next Three Were Supersetted with each other.*

2 Mile Speed Run, 2.25 Mile Speed Walk. 7AM.

I am now realizing, that I also, need to start Swimming. 15Mtrs(45ft), Full BDU, Boots, and Weaponry for "RIP". Im not an Avid swimmer and Never was. The last time I went swimming, I was alittle Winded at around 40-45ft with just myself. Damn. this sucks. Hopefully, No Cardio, to a vary Intense level of Cardiovascular health will change all that. In which it should. I have only ran, 4 times, and im already showing a vast improvement in speed and cardio endurance. Lords giving me a good sign.

Purchased around 25lbs of meat at the Navy Base, then headed out alittle later to Camp Blanding, for alittle more training.

1 Mile, Interval Training Run to warm up, then...
45Min's worth of Swim Training at the lake. Bodybuilding, and Swimming dont mix, I can tell you that. My delts looked like cannon balls hanging off of my shoulders, after about 25 meters of swimming they were so pumped and exhuasted.

Damn, too much cardio. Time for a 3 day break and start it all over again.

You know what happened bro.
Im now, Not-Able to join any combat, or nearly any Job in the U.S. Army, for as they say Im legally Color Blind. I think I would personally know If I was even the shy-est bit color blind after 18years, but hey, I guess not. They said, they may be able to make an exemption for this to be able to go into infantry, but Even if I was to become a Army Ranger afterwords and pass all my schooling, I couldnt see any combat situations with this disorder. a 5ft 7In. 200lb Bodybuilder, in nearly perfect health, Cannot get a job, that a 250lb Computer Slob, that barely passed the asvab with a 32 can recieve. Thats a Fucked up world.

But enough with the Remorse. Time for more training. Log in later tonight.

"Out of my way"-Seether.

Deltoid and Alittle Biceps. Felt really weak on delts, I know I could press more next week. Also a 250lb 6ft 2. 62yr old (dont let the age fool you) bodybuilder came up and talked to me, wanting to know information about me. This is the biggest guy currently at my gym, wanting to know how old I was, and the like. Mainly, for as he never see's anyone with my strength and form. who knows, but it really made my night. He felt I could go far in bodybuilding, stating I had a great physique and great natural strength. But, onto other things non gym related.

Just been really upset lately. Im To the point, where I'm about to go ballistic on my parents for their attitude toward me. They feel that, it doesnt matter about my goals and dreams in life, all that matters is what they care about and what they desire. The only thing my mother will recieve this mothers day, is a signed contract stating I will be out of the states for the next four years. I will not let anyone stand in the way, of my dreams and what I want to accomplish in this life. I will never be another person fufilled with what if's, or the like. Well, enough about that. Damn, Im stressed out. So, Here is the workout.

Push Military Press, Barbell:
135x5
225x1
275x5
225x15

Barbell Curls:
135x15 (easy, with perfect form)
'couldnt go any more, wrists started giving me trouble.'

Seated Side Laterals:

Im joining the Fire Acadamy, along with taking EMT.
Fireman, is the only other job I could ever picture myself doing.

Mentally. The Military, or anyone ever telling me no, you can never, and will never do something because of that B.S. about my vision is taking its toll. Only because, there is nothing physically or emotionally I can do to change me being partially colorblind. When you lose out on a dream, it hurts. doesnt matter how much it ment to you. Its just hard to face the cold hard truth sometimes.

Interesting split. Curious how it will work out for you!

The_Beast
05-14-08, 9:36 pm
Im making a few diffrent splits, to get alittle anticipation on what I enjoy the most. This split it similiar to a powerlifting split, but with more of a bodybuilding mix. To get the most out of Strength and Muscle Size. 8 Sets for Primary Workout, 3 for secondary's. Im not showing the Rep Scheme or Secondary's because I will choose them on a day, to day basis. But the primary's will always stay the same. Old school is the name of the game here. And Yes, I am a Reg Park fan if you were wondering.

Well, I've noticed a noticable diffrence in the past 2 months I've been training them this way, especially on the amount of weight I can drill, with great form on my sessions for calfs. So, Yes. Arnold was the one who brought me to the conclusion, when I was reading his article's along with Reg Park's that you need to train them atleast 4 Days a Week for maximum Growth and Size. Recovery is phenominal, believe it or not, doing it that way also.

Yeah bro. Came along way though with the Biceps. If you want to know about my old routine, shoot me a PM. Or wait till' next' monday-tuesday for my Chest/Bicep day. Right now, Im off to work. Stay Strong.

Happily Awaiting for the Charcoal to simmer down on the Grill, ready to cook some of the necessary daily meats of the Valley. As I'm sitting here I thought I might chime in on my daily Diet and Nutrition. Im not going to sit here, and tell you I eat the Exact same meals day in and day out, and all that bullshit. That would be ludicrous and misleading. I eat, "Around" the same meals, day in and day out, but thats only natural for me.

In the Early Morning I eat around One Cup of Oats or a Bowl of Raisin Brand Cereal, along with a Protien Shake and a glass of pure 100% whole milk.

During my Fourth Period, or 10AM, I eat another meal consisting of usually poultry or steak. It could be Two Half Pound Chicken breast, or a Pound to a pound and a Quarter of Steak. All depending on the amount available I leave in the fridge, the day before. This is my left-over-carry-over meal.

At 11:45AM, I go and eat the school lunch, which consist of 6 Chicken Nuggets, a Scoop of Box Mashed Potato's with Gravy, vegetables, a Whole Wheat Roll, and a Bottle of Milk or Water.

11:45AM-4:15PM. Nothing.

4:45PM, Im home and am Ready to eat before the Gym. I usually consume the most of my calories at this meal. It Varies day by day, but if I can help it, I dont leave out with atleast a pound of meat, glass of whole milk, and some carbs before I head out.

8-9PM, Im home. I grab some more meat, eat another meal, and im off to sleep to start it all over again tomorrow.

Today was a good day overall, except my Delts, Biceps, and Triceps were still torn up after nearly a week of recovery, especially my Biceps and Deltoids they were nearly broken into peices. Diet and Nutrition, along with 8-10hrs of sleep a night are all there. Im guessing that my Volume was alittle out of control last week. This week, I'll tone it down alittle bit. Remember, Im just testing the waters. It really cooked into my workout, from my heavy bench to barbell curls, I was working with poor maintained equipment.

Believe it or not, I was completely wasted after this. My Biceps, and nearly all secondary muscle groups were shot. My Pectorals, never even got the Hint of Exhuastion. It was all my Delts, they nearly ripped my shirt they were so pumped. Damn. Next week will be better. Now its time to think about this weeks, Deltoid and Tricep workout. Rise and Shine.

I did, I felt really good. I work out alone now, my workout partner for a total of two weeks bailed on me. "the Unmotivated, the Weak." Brings back old memories.

ME Dumbell Shoulder Press.

Size, well Diet in my terms is "Total Nutrition". Im not going to Bullshit with you, Sometime's I do enjoy alittle outings for some Fried Fish, or alittle' Country BBQ All-You-Can-Eat Buffet. The main thing I try to accomplish is getting my Main 3-4 Meals in, and then, getting a few meals of my choice in (Maybe a boal of cereal, Sandwich, etc.) Yet, my usual "cut and dry" Diet and Nutrition consists of this:

Grade A Large Eggs (Usually just cracked into a glass, drinking them on the spot.)
Red Meat or Poultry. (2LBs Red Meat or 3 Chicken Breasts)
Some Cornbread, Rice, Beans, or Green's.
100% Whole Milk.
Tap Water.

Yeah its Basic. So are my Lifts. So is my Style. This diet, is something I can always live with. Isn't that the meaning for are so called "diet", a Lifestyle change. Well, thats exactly what I'm doing, changing my life through size and strength. I've always taken a Multivitamin or a few supplements up until now, but at my age and health have never really noticed any diffrence in performance when I got off of them. "Supplements" are exactly what they are, a Supplementation to a Poor Diet and Nutritional Plan.

Smart thinking, Beast! No need to get sidelined.

I guess there impressive to some. But, I'll let you down on alittle secret. I was benchpressing this same weight, the same reps, with a Tremendous amount of decreased Tricep strength and Extremely less deltoid strength one year ago at around 180 pounds bodyweight. All this ofcourse, before I tore one Rotator Cuff, and strained the living hell out of the other one. I stopped powerlifting, started bodybuilding Just where I could tend to my injury on a more effective basis. It's all good though. Yesterday, I realized, I REALLY need someone else in the gym. I have been working out by myself, lifting off by myself, doing everything by myself forever it seems. I've noticed I have good form on lower weight (225) but at higher weight, I tend to not push the bar Straight up, like most I push it in a manner back toward the rack due to fear of no spotter to help me if something goes wrong.

Thrawn
06-11-08, 7:34 am
Sure is impressive to me, but i am a pretty poor bencher so far. Working on it tho =)

Well bro, I was flat benchpressing at 180lbs bodyweight, 275 Pounds around 5 months after I started(three months I lifted Dumbells at my house). Then, I went on to around 365 pounds in around a year and a quarter training period. Tricep Strength, and Injuries have Kept me from going any further in the sport. That's my main focus now, Prevention and Redemption.

Yeah brother. I didn't note it, But the Deadlifts weren't anything Near Failure. I just ran out of Steam. That's exactly what happens when your Cardiovascular is Non-Existent. Starting Today, Im going to start doing Cardio Again. From Now on. Nothing Heavy, Just some Light jogging through town. My Daily Caloric Intake won't have a problem with it. I don't count Calories, Protiens, or Carbs or even watch my Fat Intake. I make "Healthy" Meals, Only Consisting of them(its my Lifestyle. After a while you understand whats good and whats not). Like a few pounds of Red Meats, Rice, Beans, Chicken Breasts a day. None of that Mc'd's Shit. I enjoy the Company of some "All you can Eat" B-B-Q Buffets sometimes though or even a decent Sub Sandwich. For Example, If I pay for a Meal at a resteraunt, its no-hold barred.
(Just yesterday I ate 4 Full Re-Orders of Ribs and Chicken, Tomatoes and Okra, along with Garlic Bread each time. Good ol' Sweet Tea, consumed about 3 Glasses.)

If It's your First Time out, with a "Gun-ho" Style for Heavy Weight on the Barbell Shoulder Press. I would Stick with 225 Pounds solo this session (I'll Fill you out on your Journey). For 3-5 Sets. Just like Squats, the Mind will stop long before the Physical body isn't able. Pick a Large Number like 15 and make it your death wish, to accomplish it every set. Believe you can hit that rep scheme with all your Heart, and you will PR every time from now on. Just to let you know, 275 pounds is a hell of a workload. I was doing 225 pounds for 15 repetitions easily and barely got 275 pounds for Clean Five. On many Muscle Groups, like the Deltoid's, Triceps, Trapezious, Forearm(Tendons), etc. that are used during the Shoulder Press, 5-10 Pounds is the equivelant of adding 20-30 pounds on the Benchpress or so it feels.

Damn, strong clean and presses.

Thanks. To tell you the truth, a Year ago I couldn't even do sets with 135lbs on the Smith Machine, four months ago couldn't even Clean 185. So, I do know about serious Deltoid training obviously because I've been there and done that.

The_Beast
06-17-08, 6:11 pm
Obviously I underestimated the Degree of how "Thrashed" my Deltoids really were. 135 Pounds, for a Single Shoulder Press was Heavy. Damn, It Made Every Lift feel like a Boulder on my Shoulders. Despite this, Did Wonders on the Benchpress even with my Blown out Shoulders and Tendons. I Easily Did 10 Repetitions with 275 Pounds (225 Felt Heavy) and Could have gotten Two More. I was Amazed that I did so many, with such ease, So I Called it a Set. (I was only Aiming for Three). Cardio Proceeded this Workout, In 100* Florida Heat for around One Mile. Thank you Lord Jesus, for High Quality Air-Conditioning.

Bought over 70 Pounds worth of Good Ol' Chinese (Exactly) Steel Chain,
from Harbor Freight (Tool Warehouse). $38.

Bought it as (Truckers Chain). 3/8 x 14ft (2). Three Layered it, and its nearly the Perfect Height for the Barbell Benchpress. Good deal if you ask me, Considering the Price of Reg. Steel Chain at any Home Improvement Store was $36 (for a Single 3/8 x 20Ft Budget Chain at Home Depot, which in terms would have Grand totaled me nearly $75-77 With Tax for two In which I needed).

Time for the Real Numbers to Unfold...

v bar pressdowns

cybex kickback machine

and some type of dip movement... dips, bench dips etc etc...

Arms, well that's a whole nother' ballpark.I have Never Trained "Triceps and Biceps" Together. But hey, I'll try to fill you In on most of what I feel really works. (BB WISE)

OLYMPIC BARBELL CURLS, 5 SETS.
CLOSE GRIP BENCHPRESS, 5 SETS.
EAZY BAR 21'S, 2 SETS.
SKULL CRUSHERS OR OVERHEAD TRICEP EXTENSIONS, 2 SETS.
DUMBELL CURLS , 2 SETS.
TATE OR JM PRESS, 2 SETS.

9 SETS EACH, for a Small Muscle Group is plenty enough. Ultimately, I thrown in the Tate and JM press for Tricep Power. Honestly, If it was me, I would Ditch the "ARM" day. It really Kills your lifts from the secondary exhuastion, and not enough recovery time.

I would Try something more on the Line's of this..

MON:BENCHPRESS/LATS
WED:DEADLIFTS/BICEPS
FRI:(DYNAMIC EFFORT BENCHPRESS)SHOULDER PRESS/TRICEPS
SAT:SQUAT/HAMS

But I can't say it more than enough brother. Ditch the Machine's, Stick with Free-Weights and Drop the Kickbacks, lol. Machine's have their place, but not on the mind of someone wanting to get a hell of alot bigger and stronger. Nothing is going to pack on more muscle, than Pure Brute Force with a Heavy Barbell. Last Note, a Few more Tips. When on the Benchpress ALWAYS tuck your Shoulder Blades together and SQUEEZE THE BAR with ALL YOUR FORCE (Throughout your set), doing these too things will keep your Rotators In check and make your Lats do most of the Heavy work off of the Pectorals. Well, Im tired. 7AM-7PM, Lawn Service in 100* Florida Heat. Lets hope my workout doesnt show it. I'll write up more In-Depth tonight, just in a hurry.

Despite conditions, Good Workout. Let me fill you In. Worked on Heavy Squats monday, Quads are still shot to this moment. Worked 7AM-7PM Today, For our Lawn Service Business. Got to the Gym at around 9:50PM Left around 10:45PM. After all the Smoke had Cleared, a Previous "Member/Personal Trainer/Worker" at my Gym (300LB Bouncer) Talks to me about my Deadlift Form, and How I'm using too Much lower back, not enough quads, etc. etc. That's when I Explained to Him my Quads are still shot, and then he starts talking about I should keep my Head up. I'm thinking to myself "Damn. When Have I ever seen you Deadlift? Or do any Decent numbers, compared to your Bodyweight." (I could see If I was doing 135lbs. But I was doing over 500lbs, No Wraps, belt, at fucking 10PM after a 12HR workday. etc.)

Thanks Brothers, I was nearly falling asleep on the Ride over there to the Gym. The only Problem I'm having on Deadlifts is my Grip is failing at the Top End of the Lift at lockout but what do you expect after 9 months of No-Deadlifts or Heavy Lat Training. Im Switching up Heavy Deadlifts to Monday, Instead of Squats(Every other Week). In Reference to that, Next Thursday I will be putting alot of Emphasis on the Quads and Hams obviously. Other than that, I Rocked that workout in a Brisk 45 Minutes, and now my calluses are completely shredded. (By the way, Never be the guy on the Squat. Who Wraps his Knee's, Throws on his Belt for 315-405 Pounds. If your knee's can't take that amount of weight, Nor your lower back then you shouldn't be doing it.) But overall brothers, I'm really Liking the New workload. Definitely not for the weak at heart.

Keep pushing it hard, but remember, 3 parts of the triangle: train, eat and recovery. Leave one of the three out and the triangle will collapse one day.

I do like the program tho and think that you are more then capable of doing it. Just hope you have enough time planned for recovery.

I understand this concept completely. The reason I wasn't recovered is my Body Hasn't adapted to this kind of Workload yet. Remember, for the longest time I was on a Very Basic Three day a Week Routine, Without Deadlifts or Heavy Back Work. By the way, my Triceps are shot from yesterday (Good thing I work them out again on Saturday)

Wherever the Lord takes me to brother, Is my Road to Freedom. Give me a Year, and Ask the Same Question. Remember, I Started lifting the End of my 10th Grade Year. I have only Lifted for around Two Years Maximum, Far Less when you take out the many months I was injured and the Three to Four months I trained with Dumbells at my House. My Gains are Insane to say the Least. If I Havn't Clued anyone In, I Lost a Tremendous amount of Strength when I tore my Rotator Cuff. I was doing 275LBs for 5 Repetitions on the Benchpress and Repping out 225LBs 20 Times, 7 Months after I started at 175-180LBs Bodyweight(3 Months at Home with Dumbells, Knowing Nothing). Thats what you Earn with Good Ol' Fashioned Brute Force Training, and the Farm Grown Diet to Go Along with it. Nobody ever gave me Advice, Loaned a Hand, when I started. I Learned everything out on my own. By Spending Countless Fridays and Saturday nights in the Gym, Trying to Figure out what worked and what didn't.

Let me Tell you a Story about me in the beggining:
Clueless, I found a Training partner who turned into a Good Friend, He looked like he worked hard at the time so I followed his Advice. Well, Listining as any young gym goer would, he told me not to Shoulder press it was bad for the Rotators, and Not to Squat Parralell only above it because it was bad for the knee's and Deadlifts "Do you want to throw a Disk". By This, I Tore my Rotator in the Matter of a Few months Benchpressing 300LBs at School, and I nearly Wasted a Complete year of Quad Development (Only Maxed out a Real Squat at 275lbs During this time, yet we were training with well over 405LBs.) and Deadlift, Hell I never Did it to Try it.

To this day, for the Previous Year:
I Previously Trained that Same Good Friend Training Partner Full time.
I Previously Trained another Training Partner the Same, Full Time.
I Previously Trained a Friend for around 4 Months, and Another for a Few Weeks.

AFTER ALL THE SMOKE HAD CLEARED, after everything I done for them, They all Quit because I actually Trained and most of them didn't like the Grim Reality that working out with me in general, was Hard. They all came up with Excuses, missing training sessions, etc. you know how it ends. To make it Short, I don't here a Word from them to this day.

I was helping my friend yesterday, Go pick up some parts for his 67' VW and I Figured we wouldn't be gone long. So, Big Story Small, I was gone until 3PM and I told him, we hadto stop and get a meal.

10AM: 6 Raw Eggs, 8oz. Orange Juice.

Calfs, Abs, Hamstrings, and Forearms. Well, Here is my Take Brother. I'm Going to add two sets of SLDL to my Monday (ME) Training since I forgot. Forearms, Without Straps and doing Heavy Weight I feel you don't need any type of Direct Training. Calves, I Havn't put them back into my Routine yet, I gave them a One and a Half month Break, Starting next week I will add Calfs at the End of my Training Days. Abs, I love doing them but I get a terrible sharp pain, from my lower abdominals and as of right now I dont know what it is so no direct ab work as of now except on (DE) Squat and Deadlift.

(DE) Training, Is all about Form and Speed. You try to get a relatively light weight, and press it as quickly as possible with your full powerlifting form. Believe it or not, I have had some Great Results doing this training. Start off with around 50% of your Max, and Feel it from there. You Will know if its not going up quickly enough or not.

My Back is Flat When I Benchpress. That doesn't make a Diffrence to me. Keeping good form, is always a Must no matter what your training style is.

I Would Use Powerlifting Cycle's for if you want to bring up a Single Certain (ME) Lift , but I wouldnt use it for anything else.

Powerlifting is only Beneficial, If you feel you want to get stronger. If you don't really "Care" to powerlift don't waste your time. Your not going to gain the overall Size you would with bodybuilding, but like me even at 18Years old, 205Lbs at 5ft 7. there are Guys in my Gym Three Times my Size yet I dominate them in Strength. So, Its all about what you want to do. I would make a Schedule, but I hafto hed off to church, I'll get it up later today though brother.

Yeah, I've had many of them. It was just one of those days, I was like "I have never seen any of these people here, and they come in and act like they own everything." for example the Benchpress I was waiting for, a guy was doing skulls on it with a Total of 30lbs with E-Z bar. It made me alittle, off sight if you understand.
Dropping to Lower Weights!!!! Never Brother. lol. But Thanks for the support.

My Brother is one of those, "fufu" type of Jerks. I don't know anyother way to describe it. well, He does marathons if that makes it any clearer.

Basically, all in all. He says, It doesnt matter about doing the basics like the Squat or Deadlift and it doesnt matter if people go to the gym and workout with zero intensity, because everyones in there for their own reasons and not everyones in there to train intensily. I even gave him the argument, about How you couldn't possibly bodybuild in the YMCA(fufu down here in FL.) and he states you can. Let me see, any proffesional bodybuilder with a PRO-CARD in the YMCA and I'll believe that one. How could you possibly bodybuild in a place, that doesnt even allow deadlifts, wait, you don't need to do those anymore. they only worked 30 years ago.

In my oppinion, it doesnt matter what you do. When I lift heavy, I lift at 100%. When I lift Light, I'm at 100%. I don't understand how people can think you only need to be 100% on a certain lift or on a certain day. Maybe thats why I outlift EVERYONE at my Current gym (the most Hardcore Gym around) and I'm 1/2 the Size of many of the people who train there(I'm 5ft 7. 210lbs), and only have been training for about two years (not even, honestly). Don't want to Stereotype but people like my brother truly give this sport (or any sport) a bad name. Kind of people, who don't believe in hard work and dedication. Complains about everything, and in my oppinion, extremely lazy.

For Example: Was mowing the Yard and Weadeating while the parents are out of town for the week (live in the Country, aint no 1/2 acre obviously) and cleaned up the house, etc. etc. (yes im a good son)

The Bum my brother is, Has a New Truck makes $20 an Hour. but runs it out of gas in our yard. Uses all our gas stored for our lawn care business, to go somewhere.

So, Today I ran out of Gas in the Mower, I come inside and asked him to go get some Gasoline. He Said, Just use the rest in the can. I told him, there wasn't even an 1/8th of a Gallon obviously it wasnt going to mow anything. I asked him to go get some with my debit card while I continue to mow with whatever I can get out of it. He says, I'll do it later, not right now. (Its over 90* Outside, havnt even had my first meal and its 12PM, Im cleaning and doing all this stuff out of my own good-will, and he is on myspace in 65* A/C.) The Gas Station is only around a Two Mile's away, I figured since I was doing mostly everything he could do something. but eh, thats life. All in All, after he said that, I walked out and drove out there to buy some myself and continued with my mowing. When I came in after I was done, he was asleep. Not the hard worker in the family for sure.

I don't even do them on a chin station. I grip the Large Square Horizontal upper support of the power rack because for the most part there is always Goons at the Chin Station (its built on our Cable Machines, of all places)

I stopped at 20. I could have done probably 40 Wide Grip Chins my first set. When I state that something was easy, it was VERY VERY VERY easy. And like always, full range of motion.
(Chins:palms facing away) not the easy, pullups obviously.

I always have done them with 45lb Plates attached. Just I'm focusing more on my heavy rows, than my Chins.

I feel ya. The only pullup bars we got are on the cable/row/pulldown machines, and someone is usually takin up both cables machines with a mirror all up in there, so I dont waste my time waitin

I have lanky ass arms, so I go wide chins anyways. I got yelled at last PFT when I tried to keep going past 20. So I never get a chance to max out, less there's a pullup MWR event contest. Did 38 last one.

Hit'n'Miss. Volume Two.
"Just workin the bugs out."
Quads were burnt out before tonights leg session, from my Cardio(Running) and Extreme Biking with my brother training for his Marathon yesterday. Biceps were somewhat sore, I'm honestly not sure why but they felt pretty knarly pre-workout.

Squat(Wide Stance):
135 x 2.
315 x 2. (Weight felt like a damn tank, honestly, thought I couldnt squat this.)
405 x 2. (Barely got rep number two. Damn, Biking blowing out my Quads.)
435 x 0. (stayed with it for around 10 seconds, and bailed out.)

Olympic Barbell Curls:
135 x 5.
185 x 20. (Whoa. Biceps were blown, hadto force myself to get this.)

I'm not sure, You Grab 185 Pounds and grab 225 Pounds in a Curling Position, and you tell me there isn't an ENTIRELY diffrent measure of weight. It feels as if, your curling twice the load. I'm sure I could accomplish a Single Rep, to Three Reps. But, I want to work my way up the ladder first. Next Week, I'm going for 205/15 Reps. I Train alone, If there was anyone that could keep up with me, I would have a partner down here in the Good ol' State of Florida. Maybe we can get stationed together, eh? lol.

Alright, sorry for the copy and paste job above. Keyboard got alittle water in it yesterday and fried it. Bought a new one so, were good now.


Heavy work bro! Those cleans are looking brutal, good stuff!

Ahh. Cleans. well, not really that brutal. Wasn't my day for Cleans. Worked in our Lawncare business, not out of the ordinary obviously, but alot later than usual due to more work from taking off the 4th of July week. Worked from 7AM-6PM. Got to the gym around 9PM. I was obviously, extremely Tired. Nearly fell asleep on the Car ride over. CGBP with and without the chains went alright, once again I did fairly decent due to the toil I put myself through throughout the day, fridays Bench Session, and that I havnt done this movement in along time. my Single with 275 was like a Rocket. It was Quick. The Chains, slowed me down again but I didn't go to failure. 295 was simple and easy, no slow spots, nice and clean. Ran to the Cleans after this, 225 Pounds isn't heavy, its just I have no form on this workout. Honestly, I'm fixing to bag it due to injury prevention. Skullcrushers, Triceps were tired from the Close Grip, and Havnt done this movement in awhile. Pretty Difficult honestly. I did it with a Straight bar, Close Grip on the barbell. Going to work on these. Upright Rows. Literally destroyed 185. 225, another story. Pretty Heavy, had a nice pop' at the bottom and it went up to the pectorals nicely. Overall Decent day.

Its decent. My Grip Strength is my main focus right now. Damn, I never thought I was that wanted on the screen. I hafto get a new camara battery, for the one I have right now in the Sony wont keep a charge. I'll give it a whirl sometime anyway.

BTW:
More than likely now signing up in the ARMY. non-combat, colorblind available. I went to the Air National Guard, and the Air Force today. Air national Guard is 6yrs/20,000 Signup but only had one job I could do, which wasn't bad I just don't want to be reserves. The Air force basically offered the same jobs as the Army, yet they don't have a Sign up Bonus of any kind and couldnt garuntee me ANY job(you pick five, and they pick one for you before you leave or if the don't have any of your five open currently they get you any one they want to anyway). Army is offering me $20,000 (over two years of starting pay, if you put it into perspective), they garuntee my Job, and hopefully I'll have the ability to crosstrain into the Infantry in the future.
Army Job:
25C, Radio Repair/Maintainence.

Going to buy a Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4, with the 6ltr(LS2) once I do Join. Main thing I'm thinking about right now.

Thanks brother. I apreciate it. It was just one of those days, my Quads were already alittle sore, from Cardio. I was tired because lack of Nutrition Prior to going into the gym. For the most part, I feel the 20-Repetition Squat Sets without my MP3(battery died in parking lot), were the Demon of all of this.

I'll list my Diet from yesterday:

#1. Nat. Peanut Butter/Jelly Sandwich (12oz. Milk/8oz. Orange Juice.)

#3. Healthy Choice, Ham and Chees Sandwich.
#4.(post workout) 32oz. 3 Cheese Meat Lasagna, 4 Peices of Toasted Garlic Bread

Yes, You can. You will be Coming to the Same AIT Tech School Obviously, Regardless. (If you choose my Job). I actually, Hadto pull a slot off of Next Months Roster, because they stated I was shipping out yesterday, they called the Rock and no more slots were open for this month, so they hadto go into next months and pull a slot/bring it back. (ASK YOUR RECRUITER ABOUT A PROGRAM TO BE AN E2 WHEN YOU GO IN. DONT SIGN OR SWEAR IN UNTIL YOU GET THAT EXTRA STRIPE IN RIGHTING AT MEPS AND AT THE RECRUITING STATION ON YOUR PAPERWORK/CONTRACT.) It's just a small Physical, and Military Exam. they do right at the recruiters office. They give you a Study Guide. etc.

It's the diffrece between starting pay of 1200$ Per. Month and $1500 Per. Month. and Countless months trying to chase that stripe, when it can be yours in less than an hour.

BTW:25C is non-combat related. So, I/We wouldn't be getting shot at anyways. lol.

NO, its pushed forward from what I thought initially it would be. (thought it was the 24th).
Well Brother, Combat depends on your severity of Colorblindness, and if you passed the falant light test after the cards. THERE IS ONLY TWO JOBS IF YOU DIDNT PASS THEM, Both non-combat related. You still get the GI Bill, $39,000 and all the Schooling, doesn't matter how long your Term is. You can't just choose the Minimum, it's very rare it even comes up. Most jobs require Four Year Minimum Enlistment Time. It's very Hard to get your schooling all done in the Military, but its possible. Most, use the GI Bill when there Term Ends. If you come back, "Prior Service" I'm not positive you recieve another Bonus. Officer Canidate School, More than likely takes a Very High Score on the Asvab to even be eligable and Doesnt offer bonuses of any kind. Once you Enlist, you can Retake the test without any problems.

Vocational Rehabilitation.
ALL school payed for (including books and supplies and a $500 stiphen(sp?) a month) in the state you live in, no matter where you go, as long as you get accepted to that school of course.
a couple of things require you to get accepted for it. maybe talk to your recruiter about it, maybe not, cause he might get mad your thinking about something when your finished and you havnt even joined yet. but he shouldnt get mad, because hes a recruiter.
Im mentioning this to you because a lot of people dont know about it, even people that are in the military or recently got out. its not something the military tells you too much about, cause the VA handles it.
but drop me a pm if your interested, or ask your recruiter.
Im going in tomorrow actually to get accepted for voc rehab.

ALL school payed for (including books and supplies and a $500 stiphen(sp?) a month) in the state you live in, no matter where you go, as long as you get accepted to that school of course.
a couple of things require you to get accepted for it. maybe talk to your recruiter about it, maybe not, cause he might get mad your thinking about something when your finished and you havnt even joined yet. but he shouldnt get mad, because hes a recruiter.
A mentioning this to you because a lot of people dont know about it, even people that are in the military or recently got out. its not something the military tells you too much about, cause the VA handles it.
but drop me a pm if your interested, or ask your recruiter.
Im going in tomorrow actually to get accepted for voc rehab.

All My Sister, etc. talked to me about, was the GI Bill ($39,000) and You can use it up to 10 Years after your final term (Optionally, Give it to a Family Member during that period also.)

Will do research on this, thanks brother.

yes that is true with the GI bill, but im almost 100% its $44,000. That is if you get the "kicker" and pay $600, before you get out, that will add $4,000 to your GI bill, bumping it to something like $43,000.
I forget get the exact numbers, ive been out for a little while now.
So it works out like this, something like $1,250 a month over 3 years, and up till 10 years, but when that money runs out, it runs out, even if you don't finish school.
And you can use the GI bill for things like police department boot/training or fireman training.

With Vocational Rehab they pay for all your school, no matter where you go in your state and pay for all books and supplies for *4* years.

Damn, haha. 3 Months ago, before I turned up "Colorblind" at Meps I was offered $25,000 for an (11 Bravo) Infantryman Position for a Four Year Term of Service.

So you and EE have the same eye issue then? Damn...could use a few more Animals in the Infantry anyway. "Bullet Catchers"(as we affecionately call eachother) don't seem to last long. Lots of guys go for their intial enlistment then re-class or get out.

I'm going to try and get, somewhere with the System and Re-class into Infantryman after my Term is up. Its been what I have ALWAYS wanted to do. Initally, Airborne Infantry, but I would like to get some Experiance in the Basic Infantry before hand. Many have told me, certain issues like this one can be "overlooked." (Yes, I can see ALL colors.) just not very small variations in them. Just like many, It has NEVER been a problem for me, I didn't even know of no such thing before I went to the MEPS station. Judging a Good Soldier, from a Bad one based on this reason is absurd. Like I was saying, 250 Pound slobs were getting this position, and they look at me and state I cannot. Let me tell you what he told me, the reason for this.

"If you and your team, find a Big Bright Red Wall and it states a Secret message, in a very small hue diffrence, you could not decode that message."

Tell me where that could affect my Rifleman, Combat Ability, and ALL mechanical abilities and I'm all ears..

(my Total available jobs at Meps, went from 70, to 2 Total.)

Horrible. to say the least, being out in special ops isnt for the musclebound. numerous 5 mile ruck runs and 6 mile runs a week will prove its toll. im training and eating as best as i can but i work so many hours a day and dont have enough free time to eat more than two whole meals a day. i drink two shakes a day, and snacks inbetween. just sucks. getting out of this bullshit as quick as i came in. they look as more physically muscular people like there wrong. they share no pity when a 250lb 6ft freak cant run a 13 minute two mile, instead they get him taped and call him overweight. all in all, love serving my country but better things than this.
