Ok so here is the deal... I needed a journey to have for a long long time. No specific results other than constant imporvement.

The old saying that is the name for this journey is one that is true of me right now. I am a mole hill, all 6'0 214lb. 12% bf of me. See where I'm going with this... There will be a mountain of a man made of myself; all the same way that mountains are made in real life. Tons of pressure, strain, pain, agony, tears, sweat and blood! It takes a million years to make a diamond and I dont have that long to wait, so it's time to get busy!

This journey will have all, no more creating them for each and every thing. If I'm bulking I'm here; same as if cutting or maintaining. I feel it's time journey wise to be like I must be with the weights consistant. No more bouncing around and creating these things at a whim. I will be here, day in day out, with food or the iron in hand, and if I'm not here I will be sleeping so that I can heal, grow, and improve.

For those who have been along on the previous 2 journeys, this one will be no different... Lots of variety, intensity, and well all out fun, which is what this is all about anyway. I will keep updates on my diets, thoughts, yadda yadda...

Sit back and enjoy the show!

Sunday 7-13-08

So after getting back from vacation, a week without weights or any stimulation to speak of my body is fully rested and ready to rock this week! I ate at least 5 times a day, most all clean. But, I did cheat on my Birthday and had some deserts at other times.

So to start the week of right I hit up some HIT cardio this a.m. 20 minutes worth as I have to get rid of some of the water retention I had from vacation. Did a 5 minute warm up and cool down period as well. This felt good and was a great way to start the week.

Got shoulders, tris, and abs tomorrow....

Philo. for the next few weeks maybe month or longer is a 4 day split. Cardio will be on non-training days, Sun. Wed. and Friday and be an alternation of HIT and low intensity long duration.

Mon- Shoulders, Tris, abs - These are areas that need impoved alot so I'm starting them up front when will be most rested. We will see what happens!
Tuesday - Back - always a fun day!
Thursday- Chest, bis, abs
Saturday- Wheelz -end the week the best way possible, with the funnest day in the gym!

Diet will be clean, as I have really learned a lot about it and my body and what works for it.

I am thinkin carb cycling for a while... will most likely be .5 g of carbs on day 1, 1g on day 2, 1.5 on day 3, then repeat the cycle. I will have a cheat meal every 5th day I'm thinking, but I will gauge this as things progress and it may be cut back to a weekly thing. Eating this way starts tomorrow with .5 grams about 100 (most will be in and around work outs on these days, Torrent being 52 grams of that and most likely oats about an hour and a half before I train). As for the other days, seeing as how I currently train in the a.m I will keep most of my carbs in before 3 p.m. Today I'm keeping carbs to a min to help flush some fat quickly. As I progress though the next few months I plan on eating this same way and bumping carbs up gradually, much like "The Freak" does in an attempt to keep my bf low while gaining as much lean mass as possible.

Success can be summed up in a variety of ways... Personally I see it as a CLIFF! Not a hill, a grade, a hike or any other fun stuff like that. Success is a straight up battle to the top, a struggle within oneself and against the odds. Its non-stop, daunting, gruelling and at times frustrating. Well to hell with it, because anything in life worth having dont come cheap! Let the dues be paid at all costs... The toll is free so long as you are willing to sacrifice.

This morning I took a frim grasp to the cliff, and I'll be damned if I ever let go or look back from this point. Climb I must and Climb I will!

Shoulders/ Tris/ ABS:

Seated Smitty Mils. in front
wu; 135 x 15; 185 x 12; 225 x 4 + 3 forced --- What a way to start the day. Going with some High intensity techniques for the next month, so the first few sets were moderate weight good form and used to get me going. 225 was a PR for reps, pushed 4 out easy, started to fail on 5 got a spot and cranked out some more... This felt like hell, in a good way as my body was not ready for it.

Giant Set 1
Side Raises / v-bar push down / Hanging leg raises 3 rounds
40 x 10/ 120 x 12/ 25 reps did the same for set 2 then 50 x 6 / 175 x 12 / 25--- Had to pin a 25 to the push down machine... Week of had me fired up!

Giant set 2
Simultainous DB front raises / Incline Skulls / Weighted decline [/B] 3 rounds
40 x 12/ 115 x 12/ palte x 25 for 2 sets then 45 x 10/ 135 x 10 PR/ plate x 25 --- Got a PR on the incline skulls... My Tris felt like exploding and looked HUGE! Good fun

Giant set 3
Bent laterals / Weighted dips / High cable Obliques
50 x 12/ 2 plates + BW x 12/ 80 x 15 for all 3 sets --- Felt like puking at this point.

DB Shrugs 2 sets of 20 with 120's

done Took down some Green Apple Torrent! Great tasting stuff... and a pack of Animal Nitro.

Thoughts about this morning: Mind Muscle connection was amazing.... Felt jacked on the drive to the gym. My shoulders and tri's feel like they are going to explode still. This one will hopefully get my shoulders to grow. If not I will simply beat them some more, until they do!

Diet today

meal 1 5:20 a.m 2 scoops whey, 1/2 cup oats M-Stak was taken at 5
PWO Torrent and Nitro
meal 2 8:30 a.m 2 whole eggs 4 egg whites
meal 3 11:30 8 oz chicken breast
meal 4 2:30 2 scoops whey, handfull of almonds
meal 5 5:30 same as 3, Plus some veg. source thinkin carrots right now
meal 6 8:30 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2 tablespoons Natty PB

Thanks Hollow! I carb cycled in the spring for about 10 weeks, which kept my bf down and produced great gains. Then I went to traditional bulking but got a little sloppy and some not so good thing resulted. So I figure if I stick with the carb cycling until it no longer produes results good things will happen. Plus I have the benefit of being able to add, reduce, and totally manipulate my carb intake to what I need at specific times, so things should work out well.

That title says how my back feels right now! Great back day this morning. Did some deads, which I hadnt done in 3 weeks. Took a few sets to get the from donw perfect, and I wasnt very strong on them today but they were fun none the less. The rest of the back day was no let of either, with rest pauses, forced reps and a major pump...

Dont have long to post today, work is going to be hectic...

chins
bw x 15 for 3 sets, 2 sets of BW + 25

deads
wu; 225 x 15; 315 x 15; 405 x 3 (clean and pretty easy); 365 x 8 for 3 sets --- These werent the heaviest, but it felt great to do them again. Amlost puked on the third set, haha

BB rows
225 x 12; 245 x 10; 275 x 8; 275 x 8 rest pause (15 sec) 275 x 4 ---PUMPED!

Rev. Med. Grip pull down
220 x 12 for 3 sets --- Just focused on the contraciton and full ROM

Seated Low cable row
250 (stack) x 8 for 3 sets drop on the last to 200 x 10

done all in about 50 minutes... Sweating like hell and barely catching my breath! Back is pumped!

Thanks bro! High reps on most everything work for me. I did only do 3 with 405 though... Next time shooting for 6+ reps with that weight. give them a try I love it. BOR are one of my fav. Good slow forceful reps, you can almost feel your lats exploding with every rep!

Yeah I had my empty RG bucket in there right by where I was doing deads. It wasnt easy, but is sure as hell was fun!


fuck, have I been gone THAT long that I missed your new log?!

I'm in!!

It just got fired up on Sunday. Not missing much, but the pages are pilling up. Always glad to have you Jim!

Thanks MD! Looking forward to reading what you do... Everytime you say somethings gong to be insane or get obliterated it is. Shred your back to pieces!


Damn those are some big rows, I'm kinda jealous lol. -T.

I love doing rows! Any way shape or from. BB are one of my fav. T-bar is close (the Ol' Skool way, bar in corner) and DB arent bad either ( just bend over put arm on knee Tony Freeman style and give it hell!) All are absolute fun!

Ok so here is the deal... I needed a journey to have for a long long time. No specific results other than constant imporvement.

The old saying that is the name for this journey is one that is true of me right now. I am a mole hill, all 6'0 214lb. 12% bf of me. See where I'm going with this... There will be a mountain of a man made of myself; all the same way that mountains are made in real life. Tons of pressure, strain, pain, agony, tears, sweat and blood! It takes a million years to make a diamond and I dont have that long to wait, so it's time to get busy!

This journey will have all, no more creating them for each and every thing. If I'm bulking I'm here; same as if cutting or maintaining. I feel it's time journey wise to be like I must be with the weights consistant. No more bouncing around and creating these things at a whim. I will be here, day in day out, with food or the iron in hand, and if I'm not here I will be sleeping so that I can heal, grow, and improve.

For those who have been along on the previous 2 journeys, this one will be no different... Lots of variety, intensity, and well all out fun, which is what this is all about anyway. I will keep updates on my diets, thoughts, yadda yadda...

Sit back and enjoy the show!

i will jump on this ride with you man as you turn into the Animal Monster that you are destined to become. i know that you will bring it everytime as well man, just from seeing you around on several post. you are a true rep for the Animal Kingdom man and i am here for this journey. peace

Thanks Excess... I hadnt done them for a few weeks and my lower back is definately feeling it. I maxed out once I think it was november at 425 and it felt crazy heavy then. Yesterday, despite my form still not being 100% making it more difficult, 405 didnt feel to bad. I'm going to keep hitting them up and when I feel my form is where it needs to be, I'm gonna see what I got in the tank!


deads... nice!

Damn Right!

That title says how my back feels right now! Great back day this morning. Did some deads, which I hadnt done in 3 weeks. Took a few sets to get the from donw perfect, and I wasnt very strong on them today but they were fun none the less. The rest of the back day was no let of either, with rest pauses, forced reps and a major pump...

Dont have long to post today, work is going to be hectic...

chins
bw x 15 for 3 sets, 2 sets of BW + 25

deads
wu; 225 x 15; 315 x 15; 405 x 3 (clean and pretty easy); 365 x 8 for 3 sets --- These werent the heaviest, but it felt great to do them again. Amlost puked on the third set, haha

BB rows
225 x 12; 245 x 10; 275 x 8; 275 x 8 rest pause (15 sec) 275 x 4 ---PUMPED!

Rev. Med. Grip pull down
220 x 12 for 3 sets --- Just focused on the contraciton and full ROM

Seated Low cable row
250 (stack) x 8 for 3 sets drop on the last to 200 x 10

done all in about 50 minutes... Sweating like hell and barely catching my breath! Back is pumped!

Sorry for such a short post...

Thanks guys it was fun, even though I only caught 4! They were going nuts for the top water stuff... So it was massive explosions out of the water and some good fights. Plus I have had a lot of things on my mind lately and last night helped to clear it up some by providing me a means of relaxation.

Pizza I took a protein bar and a gallon of water this time. I used to take Chips back when I was a true fat kid.

Stiff and R.Bearse- I know people from here who go to North and to Canada to fish, so it must not be to bad up there. This was a small farm pond so most of the fish were about 2 to 3 pounds, so I'll go for the 1lb average counting as 4!

Hell if we listened to those voices, we wouldn't have been carrying gallons of water to class, eating all the time during class (everything from shakes, to chicken breasts, to tuna and grits haha), to just doing half the shit we were doing.

So after fishing last night, my head was pretty clear. I was focused up, locked in, and ready to punish myself in a fun ass way! The drive to the gym take 9 minutes and 27 seconds exactly. I have timed it numerous times and could drive it in my sleep. Today it felt as if it took 10 years. I just wanted to grab something and push it! I woke up and could taste dumbbells, iron, sweat, and PAIN . I was almost relieved when I go to the gym so I could cut lose all of the energy and frustration that has been building up. Today was chest, bi's and abs and I did my best to let them have it. Just stuck with the basics today, nothing fancy so if your looking for something ridiculous go read elsewhere. My cousin is going to Chicago and Luke had a major Organic Chem 2 test today so it was a one man show. A death match of me against me, no hold barred! I pulled my Animal hat down to where no one could see my eyes, and began my dissent into madness.

Incline DB press
55x 20; 75 x 15; 85 x 12; 95 x 10; 105 x 6 (this pissed me off) so drop set 75 x 12 directly into DB Incline Flyes with the same weight for a crippling set of 8! Everything was going good, then boom the 105 dibacle. I stood there after the drop set/ flye combo staring at myself in the mirror wondering why in the hell I had wore an Animal shirt today, fuck I'm not even worthy to call myself an Animal! Snapped out of it, cranked up some For Whom the Bell Tolls and picked up more DB's, because I had business to take care of.

Flat Flyes
55x 15; 60 x 15; 70 x 12 rest pause 70 x 6 --- major chest pump! It was now on and time to inflict more punishment.

Weighted Dips, big lean forward to hammer my chest ss/ w underhand cable crosses
BW + plate x 15/ 80 x 12; BW+ 2 plates x 12/ 80 x 12; BW+ 2 plates and a 25 x 6 dropped weight into BW dips to failure (I lost track and 12, but it felt like I was there forever)/ 80 x 12 dropped to 50 x 15 --- Dunno what was going through my head at the end of this one and didnt care! Both final exercises were to complete failure... Which was a first I have gone far before, but never to this point!

bi's
Straight bar
bar x 15; 95 x 12; 95 x 12; 105 x 10; 115 x 8 --- Strict, controlled, massive pump! Arms felt like they were splitting open.

DB hammers simultanious
40 x 12; 45 x 10 for 2 sets, dropp on the last one to 30 until fail --- bi's got wide looking here!

Hurcules curl
50 x 12 for 3 sets --- no rest just one arm after the other at a room spinning pace.

abs
hanging leg raises
3 sets of 25

rope curnches
2 x 35 at 130

Took down some Torrent and a pack of Nitro post.

Not the best of moods lately, as is evident by most of the post. I kind of lost it in there this morning and the thoughts that follow the exercises are exactly what went through my head, because with out them you would not get the full effect of my work out today. That pause and look in the mirror was about a 2 second thought, that felt like 2 years almost an out of body experience. It really lit a fire under my ass for the rest of the wo as I just went nuts, and probably was in serious need of a straigh jacket.

When all was said and done, I felt much better! Now on with the day, rest day tomorrow just some cardio... Then Saturday is leg day baby! Best day of the week and I still have it to look forward to. I think things could be looking a lot better!

I feel your pain. That's how I was feeling after chest day... just pissed. Definitely can relate.. don't worry though you did the Animal proud and way to demolish your chest.

I was ok when it was over, just pissed mid work out. I went at it so hard that, the pissed felling left. haha. Thanks, it and my bi's are gonna hurt tomorrow.


Man that workout you just did shows what being an Animal is all about! You hit it hard, and heavy, and didn't let any self doubt or negative energy within stop you from pressing on!

We all got our demons bro, I'm no different then you, shit I was unsure about hitting my squat PR yesterday and even had my doubts. You have came a long way, and not only are you looking good but are also strong as fuck!

So tell those negative voices that are trying to biring you down to shut the fuck up cause you are just gonna keep steadily climbing up!

Thanks Shiz! I didnt think about it like that (refering the the initial part of your post). They will clear up, this shit comes in cycles for me. I go a long just fine for months upon months then it rares its ugly ass head and I have to beat it back mercilously. Thanks for you support bro!


Killer session Broc! I like the supersets and dropsets, and the simultaneous hammer curls sound pretty damn brutal.

Thanks Phil! I'm gonna feel it for sure. Yeah I like the simultaneous hammer curls, they work IMO.

I can't believe you didn't go take a shower with your toaster after that workout. Are you fuckin' kidding? That was a solid workout. You did 57 reps before trying that 105. I would have hit a wall too. Way to push thru it!

Thanks! yeah it got solid as it went. I was just frustrated with the whole hit the wall issue. I honestly didnt realize I had done 57 reps before doing the 105's...

Yeah it did! The pissed feeling faded throughout the work out, it was only for that brief time between Incline and flyes. Thanks for your support Hollow!

So after fishing last night, my head was pretty clear. I was focused up, locked in, and ready to punish myself in a fun ass way! The drive to the gym take 9 minutes and 27 seconds exactly. I have timed it numerous times and could drive it in my sleep. Today it felt as if it took 10 years. I just wanted to grab something and push it! I woke up and could taste dumbbells, iron, sweat, and PAIN . I was almost relieved when I go to the gym so I could cut lose all of the energy and frustration that has been building up. Today was chest, bi's and abs and I did my best to let them have it. Just stuck with the basics today, nothing fancy so if your looking for something ridiculous go read elsewhere. My cousin is going to Chicago and Luke had a major Organic Chem 2 test today so it was a one man show. A death match of me against me, no hold barred! I pulled my Animal hat down to where no one could see my eyes, and began my dissent into madness.

Incline DB press
55x 20; 75 x 15; 85 x 12; 95 x 10; 105 x 6 (this pissed me off) so drop set 75 x 12 directly into DB Incline Flyes with the same weight for a crippling set of 8! Everything was going good, then boom the 105 dibacle. I stood there after the drop set/ flye combo staring at myself in the mirror wondering why in the hell I had wore an Animal shirt today, fuck I'm not even worthy to call myself an Animal! Snapped out of it, cranked up some For Whom the Bell Tolls and picked up more DB's, because I had business to take care of.

Flat Flyes
55x 15; 60 x 15; 70 x 12 rest pause 70 x 6 --- major chest pump! It was now on and time to inflict more punishment.

Weighted Dips, big lean forward to hammer my chest ss/ w underhand cable crosses
BW + plate x 15/ 80 x 12; BW+ 2 plates x 12/ 80 x 12; BW+ 2 plates and a 25 x 6 dropped weight into BW dips to failure (I lost track and 12, but it felt like I was there forever)/ 80 x 12 dropped to 50 x 15 --- Dunno what was going through my head at the end of this one and didnt care! Both final exercises were to complete failure... Which was a first I have gone far before, but never to this point!

bi's
Straight bar
bar x 15; 95 x 12; 95 x 12; 105 x 10; 115 x 8 --- Strict, controlled, massive pump! Arms felt like they were splitting open.

DB hammers simultanious
40 x 12; 45 x 10 for 2 sets, dropp on the last one to 30 until fail --- bi's got wide looking here!

Hurcules curl
50 x 12 for 3 sets --- no rest just one arm after the other at a room spinning pace.

abs
hanging leg raises
3 sets of 25

rope curnches
2 x 35 at 130

Took down some Torrent and a pack of Nitro post.

Not the best of moods lately, as is evident by most of the post. I kind of lost it in there this morning and the thoughts that follow the exercises are exactly what went through my head, because with out them you would not get the full effect of my work out today. That pause and look in the mirror was about a 2 second thought, that felt like 2 years almost an out of body experience. It really lit a fire under my ass for the rest of the wo as I just went nuts, and probably was in serious need of a straigh jacket.

When all was said and done, I felt much better! Now on with the day, rest day tomorrow just some cardio... Then Saturday is leg day baby! Best day of the week and I still have it to look forward to. I think things could be looking a lot better!

i got to love the passion that you demonstrate man. like myself and many others that have to deal with those demons everyday man. you have to kill them because they want to keep you from achieving all of your dreams and goals. keep on working hard and making the iron beg for mercy man. peace.

Ok so I have read many leg work outs on here in the short time I have been here... A lot of motivation comes from the creativity, intensity, and passion from sources such as Machine, G-Diesel, Enforcer, Toni and many others. Well I figured it was time for me to take what I had learned and use my own creativity and desire to make something twisted, nasty and fun at the same time. Burt has often called me the Mad Scientist, well today I was in the lab doing some work... I walked into the gym knowing it was leg day, the best day of the week, the month, hell of my existance to this point. Every leg day is like this, a test of ones manhood, gumption, and more often than not your guts (some of mine were left in a RG bucket today)... Well I didnt have a plan when I went in the door other than I wanted to deliver a complete ass whooping to my lower body... Things fell into place as I went!

Here is what I came up with and the title gives a good pre-lude, you will notice it throughout:

Warm up
10 min walking on Dreadmill to get the blood going. Incline 7 speed 3.8.

Let the fun begin!

Leg ext. ss/w walking DB lunges
130 x 20/ 30 lb DB for 20 yards down hall and back/ 150 x 20/ 45 db 20 yd lunges -- So much blood so fast! Legs looked full, and were ready to rock... This was tough no lie, nasty combo. So on to bigger and better things.

leg press ss/w DB SLDL
12 plates x 20/ 80lb DB x 20; 14 plates x 20/ 80lb db x 20; 16 plates x 20/ 80 lb db x 20 --- Could barely get out of the leg press machine on set 2, but I drug my ass over to the DB and knocked out my SLDL. I love SLDL's with DB such a great strech. My legs were, well it was really getting fun at this point!

Squats fixed weight all ATG- I will put vids up if you would like once I get them on you tube? let me know
225 x 20 for 5 sets, Felt great but I wasnt finished so 225 x 12 (this was all in the tank on set 6) drop set to 135 x 12, super set with fall into floor, room spining... Good time these squats were! Why the 5th exercise? Because it makes for a more interesting time... haha

Stood up to unrack the weight and wound up in search of the RG bucket. Puked, which helped stop the room from spinning and my head from pounding. I hate puking and this came out of no where surprise attack style.

lying leg curl ss/w Donkey Calves
130 x 20/ 200 x 20 for all 3 sets

Done!

Torrent and 2 packs of Nitro post... Torrent was 2 scoops apple 1 cherry! Delicious. I sat in the gym for a while to regain composure.

I hope I cant walk tomorrow!

Had a cheat meal of sorts last night. Desert was the only cheat, it was at Longhorn after watching The Dark Knight which is amazing by the way! I highly recommend it, so go see it! I wouldnt have gotten desert, but that girl wanted some chocolate thing. So had it on top of a 22oz Porterhouse, loaded baked potatoe (ok this was a cheat), and some crab bake thing they have that was great. The desert was killer too!

Here is what I came up with and the title gives a good pre-lude, you will notice it throughout:

Warm up
10 min walking on Dreadmill to get the blood going. Incline 7 speed 3.8.

Let the fun begin!

Leg ext. ss/w walking DB lunges
130 x 20/ 30 lb DB for 20 yards down hall and back/ 150 x 20/ 45 db 20 yd lunges -- So much blood so fast! Legs looked full, and were ready to rock... This was tough no lie, nasty combo. So on to bigger and better things.

leg press ss/w DB SLDL
12 plates x 20/ 80lb DB x 20; 14 plates x 20/ 80lb db x 20; 16 plates x 20/ 80 lb db x 20 --- Could barely get out of the leg press machine on set 2, but I drug my ass over to the DB and knocked out my SLDL. I love SLDL's with DB such a great strech. My legs were, well it was really getting fun at this point!

Squats fixed weight all ATG- I will put vids up if you would like once I get them on you tube? let me know
225 x 20 for 5 sets, Felt great but I wasnt finished so 225 x 12 (this was all in the tank on set 6) drop set to 135 x 12, super set with fall into floor, room spining... Good time these squats were! Why the 5th exercise? Because it makes for a more interesting time... haha

Stood up to unrack the weight and wound up in search of the RG bucket. Puked, which helped stop the room from spinning and my head from pounding. I hate puking and this came out of no where surprise attack style.

lying leg curl ss/w Donkey Calves
130 x 20/ 200 x 20 for all 3 sets

Done!

Torrent and 2 packs of Nitro post... Torrent was 2 scoops apple 1 cherry! Delicious. I sat in the gym for a while to regain composure.

I hope I cant walk tomorrow!

Had a cheat meal of sorts last night. Desert was the only cheat, it was at Longhorn after watching The Dark Knight which is amazing by the way! I highly recommend it, so go see it! I wouldnt have gotten desert, but that girl wanted some chocolate thing. So had it on top of a 22oz Porterhouse, loaded baked potatoe (ok this was a cheat), and some crab bake thing they have that was great. The desert was killer too!

Now thats what the fuck I am talking about bro. I love to see when real true Animals step up to the plates and deliver like this. You fuckin set the bar with this workout for so many others to follow. I greatly appreciate the shout out by the way. Glad I could throw some knowledge and inspiration your way. You are def going to be felling this workout very soon, hell maybe even 2nite. Don't think it can't happen bc it has to me and can happen to you. So rest up, SUTAS is on the way. And I love the fact that even though u lost ur lunch, u still cam back and hammered out the rest of the workout. Many "normals" out there would have quit right there but u said fuck it and kept on going. Now that is fuckin intensity and thats what I like to see. Good shit bro, rest up, enjoy the weekend and I will be seeing ur ass very soon.

Ok so I have read many leg work outs on here in the short time I have been here... A lot of motivation comes from the creativity, intensity, and passion from sources such as Machine, G-Diesel, Enforcer, Toni and many others. Well I figured it was time for me to take what I had learned and use my own creativity and desire to make something twisted, nasty and fun at the same time. Burt has often called me the Mad Scientist, well today I was in the lab doing some work... I walked into the gym knowing it was leg day, the best day of the week, the month, hell of my existance to this point. Every leg day is like this, a test of ones manhood, gumption, and more often than not your guts (some of mine were left in a RG bucket today)... Well I didnt have a plan when I went in the door other than I wanted to deliver a complete ass whooping to my lower body... Things fell into place as I went!

Damn skippy man. You knocked some shit right out of the ballpark with this one. Its been a while since I supersetted like this here..dont think I could keep up with ya on this one. LOL...to top it off, you puked then hit the last superset right afterwards too...LOL...I will bow down to you now. LOL

Rest, eat...and hope you recover soon with this one man. Thank you for naming me here too, but this was all your doin man. You have inspired me to bust some ass on monday, no doubt about it.

You killed the legs, good job. Eat that meal 3 times a day, don't be scared! haha, 22oz porterhouse.. mmmm

Thanks E! I made a mistake in posting, after watching the video it was only 10/8 on the drop. I guess you cant really count when youre about to puke and cant feel the lower half of you body! My legs are still fried... That one did it for sure. Dude Sept. is getting closer by the day, and I think its going to dive me into a state of training madness! Thanks so much for the kind words, I dunno how much I raised the bar because it has been set so HIGH around here. It is more like I'm just grabbing ahold of the bar and holding on for dear life in hopes of not being left behind.


I agree with Enforcer's post, it takes guts to do what you did... great workout Broc... oh and the desert sounds great

Thanks SG! That desert was awesome. Walking like a penguin still!

I have told you before Toni, you have no reason to bow to me. I'm just trying to get myself to another level on day at a time. I cant wait to see how hard you hit your legs today, if that one inspired you... Because I get amped from reading a lot of peoples work outs around here.


recovery is going to be a must after that intense leg session. i really cant wait until i am able to return to really working my legs. which is on schedule for me with my rehab. glad to see that you made it through an incredible workout man and way to change things up and be creative. peace.

Legs are the best! I hope you recover quickly so that you can come back and murder your legs too... as for the creativity, well it keeps it ineresting.


Sick wheels session bro

Thanks Bro!


Absolutely bro. I'm still trying to figure that split out lol. Sick leg day today too bro.

Thanks Steve! I hope you get it figured out. Cant wait to train sometime late Aug. early Sept. hopefully.


you taught those legs a lesson! good shit

I tought them a lesson... But have needed a wheel chair for the past 2 days. haha My family has got a good laugh from this one.


Drop sets on squats are no fuckin joke bro... Good job

Drop sets are always good, no matter what body part! haha especially legs!


Holy fucking shit Broc, that is one hell of a wheels session! You flat-out murdered your legs bro, really awesome shit. Can you walk today? Major SUTAS from that I'm sure.

SUTAS was understatment. I look like the tin man! I could walk, just not well. hahah


you must be hurting cause you have not been here responding! LOL..hope your ok. LOL


I think hurting would be an understatement...he's in all out recovery!!

Good stuff bro good stuff

I was in recovery mode! Thanks for looking out for me guys. I was covered up with family stuff yesterday and was unable to get on here. I was walking around all funny like though. Oh and I did some cardio yesterday a.m. A little walking on the treadmill to help losen things up. Did it help? NOT REALLY! haha


hell of a workout man I like doing the squats for 20 reps like that really fells like thier gonna pop out of my skin great stuff man keep it coming

Yeah my quads felt and look like they would explode. I'll try to get some pics up today from the aftermath. Didnt take a before, but I can take one today for an example.


horrific and evil day broc...awesome job...damn that food sounds great too

horrific? Evil? nah it was fun Grant! Thanks, the food was amazing!

I dunno bout setting the bar... I just put it on my back and took it for a ride like Machine said to do! I just set out to murder my legs, mission accomplished. If others are inspired then great! I hope so, but it wasnt the goal.

07-21-08, 9:59 am
So I did the "march of the Penguins" into the gym this morning to have some fun destroying my shoulders, tri's and abs. My legs are still sore as hell! Didnt let that stop me though... Got in some solid work for 47 minutes. Came out covered in sweat so I know something went right. Shoulders were pumped and looking large for once. Only one guy training with me today, and he was like man you are looking thick! I dunno how that is I'm only 213.5. I took measurements yesterday morning of my waist, still at 34" and my weight is up from 208 when I finished off the keto. So lets keep it rolling, got about another month of what I'm doing now and then come September.... It's time to put operation "Big Broc" into effect and start packing some meat on my frame. Until then, I must maintain my intensity, busy my ass, and flat out take care of business.

So today was approached with a workman like mentality and went as follows:

Pre - animal Pump and BA9 (6 caps) This was about an hour after a shake (2 scoops whey, half cup oats). M-Stak at wake up time (5 a.m.).

shoulders

Standing DB Mil
50 x 20; 60 x 15; 65 x 12; 75 x 8 dropped to 55 x 10--- Um doing this one to start the day off is like hitting the NOS button at the begining of the work out. Gets some major blood in the shoulders and is a great twist on the mother of all mass makers for the delts, the over head press...

Standing DB side laterals ss/w straigh bar upright row
40 x 12/ 115 x 12; 45x 10/135 x 8; 50 x 6/ 135 x 8 --- Um this combo was amazing. Really tore up the side delts and hit the rear pretty well with the up right rows.

Bent DB Raises ss/w Straigh bar Front raises
45 x 12/ 95 x 10 for 2 sets; 55 x 8/ 95 x 10 --- Shoulders were fired! Enough said so on to Tri's

Tri's

v-bar push downs
120 x 20; 150 x 15 for 2 sets --- Usually I clip weight to the machines, but the "dont clip weights to the machine" nazi lady was working this morning. So as to avoid confrentation and interuption of my work out I went for more reps and tried to be a good little ANIMAL.

CGBP
205 x 8 for 2 sets/ 225 x 8 --- My tris were pretty pumped before this, which made these feel really difficult. They brough on a major pump that made striaghtening my arms hard.

DB kick backs

40 x 10 for 2 sets 45 x 10 for the last one -- Finished of tri's with a classic. Got a great squeez on these. I could feel my tri's expanding with every rep.

ABS
Giant set 3 rotations.
land mines x 12 with plate on end of bar - still getting used to these so they tear me up even though most of what I do is form stuff at the moment
in and out crunches 20
haning knee raises 15

What a way to start off my week!

Took down my Torrent and 2 packs of Nirto post and was ready to grow!

Yeah I got lucky with the genetics from my parents kind of. My fathers side was big upper bodied with little legs. Moms side was the exact opposite. I got the best from both though. Always been naturally big in the leg department, and not small by any means in the chest area. My legs stay above 26" even if I dont hit them for 3 weeks and my chest has always been large, and it keeps growing. The only thing is I look like a T-Rex because my arms grow slow.

I think it funny, I sit here and read your workout layouts and I remember how when we start lifting, all those heavy compound movements all look so scary. We would lift and feel dead for days. Now, we look for creative ways to add even more punishment to the sessions! LOL!

Thanks! haha that lady, alsways smiling when I walk in. But, clip a 35 to the leg extension machine and she immediately goes through the roof! Then trys to tell me well you know that its way better to do them one legged anyway... I'll give it to her one leg ext. are great for a change, but hell woman I'm trying to build some freakin Dino legs over here! I need a lot of weight! So now I get the eagle eye whenever a machine starts getting stacked out.

LMAO HG!!! Complete employment worhtlessness, good thing my job is setting, reading and answering legal ?'s all day. Because I would be worthless if I were in the field of moving things. You couldnt be more right about the scared of some lifts. When I started back I was so weak it was embarressing. Now its just fun to let lose and see what kind of hellacious furry ensues in the weight room.

Thanks Jim! yeah the weekend was great... Watched 3 movies, wich after Saturday morning was good because it meant lots of setting around.

The Dark Knight was out of this world good!

Hancock is really good too!

My little brother talked me into seeing Wall E--- didnt quite rise to the level of the other 2 listed, but I guess for a kids movie it was ok.

Thanks Grant! I said it earlier I was blessed with a big frame, for the most part. My legs have always been big, now I'm on the quest to make them bigger!


Keep working hard man!

It was like putting a flame thrower to my back this morning after I had bathed in Gasoline... Hell yeah! Did some racks, and took a page from McFly and Big Al (FREAKS) and did some strongest range. This was fun... lower back is gutted! Torched! hell yeah for back day! I wish I could have done it all day long, but I had this little thing called work... BOOOO!

Here was how it went in the Iron Playground this morning...

Strongerst Range (rack pulls)
135 x ??? (wu); 225 x 25; 315 x 15; 405 x 9 (back said FU buddy on the 10th haha but it was swole); 455 x 3 ( PR! ); 365 x 10 ---- duh lower back was gutted. Strongest Range = MAJOR FUN! All of my lats were feeling it, what a way to start... had the i-Pod cranked nothing but Slayer screaming in my ear, so yeah I was going to another level in my mind!

Bent BB row
225 x 10; 225 x 10; 275 x 6; 225 x 10 --- hello wings! Lats went bonkers at this point. Great contractions on these I could feel everything firing which is how I like it!

DB Row
120 x 12 for 3 sets--- Row Row Row your boat. hell it felt like I was training to be on a Viking Ship... I was rowing like my life depended on it today. Did these Tony Freeman style just grab the DB spread your legs fall over and put your elbow on your knee then ROW!

Neutral Grip Pull downs
200 x 10 for 3 sets --- Good change of pace this one was. I hadnt done these in forever! Hit my lats hard in a way I hadnt feel them hit in a while...

Wide Grip Pull ups
3 x 8 with body weight --- Debated on whether or not to do naut. pull overs, but the king of back builders (IMO) won out. Just squeeze and lower, plain and simple... Yeah ok at the begining of the work out. At the end is a whole new ball game.

Torrent and 2 packs of Nitro Post...

Feeling wide! Look out double doors, I'm going to have to use both of you at some point...

Thanks bro! Pull ups arent torture... Ok yeah they are. Big weight = Big Broc!


Damn bro, that was one sick back session. Nice to see you had a little something left in the tank to hit those pull-ups at the end.

HMMM reading the end of that makes me think I should have went harder now... Then again my back is feeling it already so I think I hit it just right. Thanks.

Thanks Phil! More murder of me is on the way...

Back is getting tight! Back is growing! Life is good....


What is strongest range? Haha fucker... had to one up me on the 405s haha thats some motivation for next week... great work Broc... 455.. You will be screaming I WANT 5 PLATES in no time hahahahah

Strongest range is knee level up... All lock out, all lower back! It's murder... Glad I have inspired you, now pull some more big ass weights and keep getting huge. I figured since I can get a solid 3 from the floor with 405 (probably more, just havent pushed it yet) that while in the rack I should just go nuts. I did and now my lower back hates me, but it will get bigger in response. Then I will punish it more and so the cycle continues. 5 Plates is coming, each week I inche closer. Thinking no Deads or racks next week, let the CNS rest a tad I'll do some T-Bars and other rowing madness instead.


Great session, bro!!! Bet you had a hell of a pump!!!

OH yeah back is still full of blood.

Strongest ranges are Rack Pulls from knee level. Big Ant and McFly do them all the time, and have you seen pics of either of those 2. They have freaky thick backs. So seeing as how I want the same I decided to give them a try. Give it a try, IT WORKS!
