Awesome leg day bro! I'm subbed to your thread! I like what you were doing last couple of sessions w/the 20 rep sets. Those are killer, but they slap on the mass like none other! If you really want to thrash superset them w/20 rep breathing pullovers. Later!

Nice chest day there bro! Short and sweet, nothing more or less needed! Like how you did the drop set to failure afterwards, you get the best of both worlds when work up to a max and hit a drop afterwards by stimulating both strength and mass gains.

and just so everyone knows the reason my protein is so high is because i am attempting tinys protein saturation diet and am in week 2 of it

i would like to update a little bit on this im in week3 of this diet and getting stronger,gaining muscle mass and leaning out quite fast and to fix my diet i get 575 grams of protein on off days and 600grams on workout days the only negative i see so far to tinys protein saturation is th fact that you look pregnant from all of the food but other than that im dropping fat like crazy without cardio and without cutting calories.

i figure the bigger my numbers get the bigger i get so far it continues to work just the basics lift big, eat big, sleep big, be big and its very simple but yet people still always seem to over analyze it all. hopefully i can be reppin out 405 before i start dieting for my first show

today was a good day but too my disapointment my calves are growing too fast they are now 18'' while my arms are only 16.5" so im cutting back the volume on them in hopes that they will just maintain there size and stop growing till my arms catch up.

Maybe you're not "feeling" your reps. Try lowering the weights, contracting the muscle throughout the duration of the movement, slow down the negative phase. Also do a 3 sec pause at bottom of press.

Either a static hold or contracted pulse at the bottom would work well. You might also want to try the 1 1/2 reps method as well.

Press the bar up through complete rep motion, then immediately follow w/ a half rep...this counts as 1 rep though for psychological purposes.

Another question: When you do presses, do you feel it mainly in the triceps and anterior delts? This is important in helping you.

Nice chest session there bro! Short and sweet!

Pullovers and db bench presses helped with my chest. You may consider switching to db bench presses instead of barbell. Always good to change things up once in a while. You could also do dips. Just keep it going man, it will develop over time!

overall good workout kinda mad i forgot 2sets of pulldowns for some reason thought i was only suppose to do 3 sets but anyway had to drag all my weights into my front yard due to he fact that im an idiot and accidently set off a bug fogger in my basement so ended up working out in my front yard( i think my neighbors did not like this they looked scared ) other than that it was good and as soon as i save up some money i can buy more 45lb plates so i can work up to pulling 405 for reps but untill then im gonna get my 340lbs for as many reps as possible. tommorow is shoulders.

I envy your behind the neck presses! I unfortunately suck at them because I'm double-jointed in the shoulder and the motion put them in a vulnerable position. Front-presses are the only ones I can really do w/some strength...those are like night and day! Anyway, kick ass!

Oh snap your going for a 20 rep death set?!

Make sure you do it in a power rack, and do them "breathing style." Take in as many deep breaths as you can and just don't stop til you get to 20! It's all a mind game bro, get through the mental aspect of it and embrace the pain!

yea ive been hitting a steady 5lb up pr every week with my 20rep set of squats and i feel like i can do more so im going for a 25lb pr on them this week if all goes as planned im gonna go crazy next week and probaly try 300lbs for 20reps ..... and your right it is all in the mind especially with these squats once you past the pain your golden.

lol yeah bro been doing them for a while now that ive figured out that theres no way i could not get a new pr every week on them if my mind was right and thanks for the support now i have to get 300 for 20 shit maybe ill try that tommorow instead of 275lbs lol worst thing that could happen is i dont make it and just get a 5lb pr from last week...either way there will be a new 20rep squat pr for me...no matter what and your right since ive been going all out on squating and deadlifting the rest of my body has really been growing fast

I was gonna make some recommendations here about your training schemes but after looking it over I think you have the idea with the high intensity and I'm just going to lurk a little a bit. What you are doing should envoke some serious gains. Just make damned sure you eat those fibrous carbs, bro, or with the numbers you are hitting nutritionally you will run into some problems - gotta get the fibrous carbs in there, and a respectable amount of them. make sure the water intake is a gallon plus (again, with the amount of nutrition you are slamming, I would hope for a gallon and a half per day - if you go over, cool, but the way you're feeding your body hit the gallon and a half a day if you can).

It looks good bro but for the sake of variety I'd mix it up a bit and opt for somethings such as chicken or other fish persides tuna so you don't go insane lol. If you got the mindset to hack down the same thing over and over again, more power to ya, but you might want to consder adding in a bit of variety. Also 3k cals seems like a lot for a cut diet, are you doing to taper down?

yea im gonna cut calories as neccasary its just that ive been going extremely high cal for so long i wanna start at the high end of calories till i stop losing then drop more as needed an as for variety right now the tuna is all i can afford protein source wise but if i see a sale for some chicken breasts ill deffniently buy it and substitute the tuna out for a while ..but if no sales come up i should be ok the last 8week mini cut i did a while ago was nothing but tuna mixed with oatmeal an EVOO all together in a container cut to six equal sections and thats all i ate for the day for 8weeks it was hard but at least this diet has a few different meals lol

Ok just watched the vid and DAMN son! I could totally feel your pain by the 15th rep! At that point that fucking bar starts feeling heavy, trust me I know!

It was hard to judge your depth watching it from the front, so next time film it from the side cause that's the only real way to tell. I know you squat deep and could tell your hips were going at least parrallel, but again the way it was filmed it's really hard to tell.

When uploading vids to photobucket do you know if you can do quicktime vids on them? Cause I got some training vids I want to post but my digicam films them in quicktime, do you know if I could upload them on there like that?

So are you gonna still train heavy during your contest diet? I know it's rough training hard during a cut.

Overall great approach here - I would however suggest being very careful going so low as 3 reps (even anything fewer than 6-8) with side laterals, I feel there is no real gain enough to make the risk worthwhile. I'd even maybe consider hitting a super high rep set once in awhile on the shoulder stuff (over 20). But I have no doubt your workout as written is profitable.

thx man and yea i was actually thinking about using the behind the neck press as more of a heavy low rep kinda exercise and the side laterials for higher reps (while still going till failure) i find myself not feeling it so much with the lower reps on side laterials so i will be focusing more on higher reps with them for now on and see what happens....thanx for stopping by man!!!

Sounds like a good plan to go heavy with low reps on the presses, and lighter weight on the laterals with higher reps. With isolation exercises you really don't need to go too heavy, just focus on good contractions, and getting a pump.

So what's next on the agenda bro? That contest diet is coming soon eh? With all the size you've put on man I bet you're gonna look great all cut up!

Bro you've got some good size on you, there's gonna be all kinds of lean mass under there, just got to lean out to show it off!

I highly recommend supplementing with some glutamine, if you're not already. It's supposed to be great during a cut to help maintian strength and size.

And just keep lifting heavy like you always do, that will also help maintain your size. What you probably should aim for is to keep the strength level you're currently at and not deload on any of your big lifts.

A lot of guys lose strength during cuts, but I think if you have the will and do it right you can keep your strength levels as well.
