Nice effort man. Lotta volume but nice effort.

Thanks, this is the special "O-Project" I am doing, and it has given me nice results. It is all about the volume and slow up and down of the reps, not about lifting ball busting weights, sure it is good to lift heavy on the final 2 sets but not back breaking weights.

Zorachus, are you bodybuilding or trying to improve strength?

(I assume bodybuilding)

I learned this method from the "Omega Project" and it is all about "volume" to build muscle. The main guys theory is that it does NOT take lifting mountains to get built up, it is all more about the volume of sets/reps that triggers the body to get bigger, plus of course a clean diet with extra protein, and always add a little weight once every week or two.

I am open to any suggestions or comments you have on this program / routine ? I am just looking to get bigger safely.

Ok thanks I will try that, but should I be super setting, meaning also do Preacher curls and switch to hammer curls after each set back and forth ? Or maybe do Hammer Curls + barbell curls ?

Here seems to be a good cheesy video of nice form for hammer curl ?

Thanks for the reply, sorry to sound dumb, but when you say " alternate each week " do you mean just do one of those exercises each week, or switch off, meaning one workout start with 1 arm preachers, then when finished move to hammer curls, and then the next week start off with hammer first then when done go to preachers afterwards ? Or just do one only each week ?

Do a different exercise every week.Like week one,do barbell curls and hammer curls.Week 2 you could do preacher curls and concentration curls.

Your sets and reps look much better.When you feel strong,add some weight.

On your deadlifts and squats,are you using a 45lb bar?How do you get 50lbs on warmup?

Thanks for the help so far. I like the new set/rep method you gave me, allows me to push heavier weight for sure, I can now add a little weight to each exercise like almost every workout now, just 2.5lb plates but still that adds up over time ?

My Deadlifts are done with the old school thinner long barbell, it weighs maybe 15-20lbs, I start with 2 x 25lbs plates. And my Squats are done through my smith machine gym.

Tomorrow is my CHEST/PUSH day, and at the end I always do some Tricep pulls, should I do 2 different exercise on that day like you have me do for biceps ? What do you recommend ?

Mike what supp's do you recommend ? This is what I take currently; I also take a Organic Multi-V. and Omega fish oil pills.

- ONs Natural Whey Protein 1 scoop before workout

- Dymatize Xpand 1 scoop before workout

- ONs Glutamine powder 1 table spoon post workout

- ONs Natural Whey Protein 2.5 scoops post workout mixed with smoothie shake

- Dymatize Xpand 1 scoop in smoothie

I am out of Dymatize, not sure if you recommend something different to take pre + post workout ? I tried the MRI brand Black Powder and MRI Anabolic Switch powders and both freaked me out, giving me big headaches and get me shakey and light headed, so I will pass on those. should I just stick with the Dymatize ?

Test boosters are pro-hormones that increase your natural testosterone levels.Which will make you more aggressive,lift harder and longer,and get stronger faster.Not to be concerned with if your under 28-27 yrs old.You can purchase them over the counter or online

Real Test is illegal and considered an anabolic steroid that is injected.This will make you huge and strong fast.

Try not to shop at chain nutrition stores,especially GNC.They work off commission on their products,and everything else is way overpriced.Stick to discount nutrition stores and the internet for supplements.You will save a ton.As far as creatine goes,I've always liked cell-tech and phosphagen.Stay away from "hardcore" creatine.Its a scam that doesnt offer you anything more than regular.Creatine products today are way too complicated.Good ol 'pure monohydrate for $10 a bottle mixed with grape juice or gatorade will give you the same benefits as a $40 container thats flavored.Plus you get like 70-80 servings with the cheap stuff.And never load creatine.Its a scam to get you to buy more.5 grams a day is fine.Even if you take it on training days only,its fine.

Thanks for the advice...I think I will pass on the Real Test, that is too hardcore for me, but I am almost 35yrs old, and still plan to have more kids, is the Test Booster still safe to take ?

I will pick of some good old standard Creatine today as well...thanks again

So how have you been feeling strength wise?Hows the diet?

Strength wise I can still add like extra 5lbs on the bar for every exercise I do, each time I workout, so since I started your method I have gained pretty good strength I think ?

Body wise I do look about the same, not seeing much bigger muscles yet...but it has only been couple of weeks so far.

I take my Protein shakes twice a day, but ran out of Creatine few weeks ago, need to go to store and get some more. My main issue I have with gaining is I see a small little belly on me since I have been gaining hard the last couple of months, and have slacked off on my cardio, I hate running, used to be a big time runner in high school and college and now sick of it.

Tennessee Mike

07-16-2008, 09:32 AM

Stop running.It will hamper your efforts.Running uses too much of your restores and you will not heal and grow properly.Trust me,Ive been dealing with clients who were runners and never gained the muscle they should have.I do about 20-30 minutes a day of conditioning.Bike,treadmill,eliptical.I do intervals.

Stay consistent with food and supplements too.Nothing works if its not done regularly.Try to eat the same amount of calories a day every day.Remember,theres no reason to bust your ass in the gym if your not doing the nutrition part with the same intensity.And dont worry about the belly.You can always strip fat later.Right now you need that surplus to add muscle.

I was thinking of that, and was going to ask you...but I think it will not be until next week or so, because I first started your method on July3rd.

And when I do the deload with the exercise selection am I doing, do I just keep those same exercises but change the reps and lighter weight ??

Tennessee Mike

07-22-2008, 06:00 AM

you could and that would be fine.But I reccomend staying away from too much heavier barbell movements.Its a good week to go in and get a nice pump,do some cardio,and relax a little.It will really help with burnouts and hitting plateaus.Keep the weight at about 75% of what you normally do and the reps about 12-15.

So if I started your method July3rd, should I wait until the first week of August to deload, in about 10 days from now ??

Also when you say keep reps around 12-15, is that even for my compound exercises where I was just doing 5reps each on the last 4 sets ??

Thank you

Back off squats and deads for thatweek.Do leg press and a rowing exercise instead.And the lowest reps I would go is 10-12.

First week of August would be good.Which means your heaviest lifting should come next week.Try to set some personal records

Looks like you dropped 5lbs in the squat from last week but your dead was better.Next time go for 230 on squat for 3,and 130 for dead for 3.

Looks like you dropped 5lbs in the squat from last week but your dead was better.Next time go for 230 on squat for 3,and 130 for dead for 3.

I actually ran out of weights to easily put on there...I have to take a bunch off and then put on heavier plates and recaculate the weight # again, this morning I was in a hurry and said **** it, didn't have the time. I need to go out and buy a few more 10lb plates, to be able to quickly add on weight, without taking some off and adding bigger plates then doing the math really quick make sure it is the correct number, it is silly.

Another question

When doing dumbbell fly's on the bench, how low should I be dropping my arms slowly, should I stop like straight even with the bench, or have them go a little lower than the flat bench to strech the chest a bit ??

Also hold it there for a sec, or just a fluid movement up and down ? Thank you.

Tennessee Mike

Lower them at a medium pace and go below parrallel.You want to feel it stretch.When you come up,dont touch the weights.Keep yourself a good 12-15 inches apart and drop again.Keep it fluid.This will keep a constant tension on the muscle.You should be sore as hell the next day.

Weird.I just posted the same info 10 minutes ago.

Thanks for tips, also with dumbbell fly's do I keep my arms perfectly straight out at all times, or slightly bent ? Do you have any good ideas of a good way I should be thinking of holding my arms while in the fly's motion ?

Again you are the best, I really appreciate everything you are doing for me, your like my silent personal trainer, and my freinds said I do look a little bigger/fuller lately. So even though I don't really see the changes they say they see it in me, and this come from a Polish weight lifter :)

So I should be starting my deload officially on Sunday. I have two more heavy lift sessions before that = CHEST/PUSH day Wed. And BACK/PULL day on Fri.

So Sunday August 3rd will make it officially to the date 1 month when I started your method. That will put me on LEG day on Sunday, what should I do for that ?

And also how long should this deload last 1 week ? And you said for all lifts on Push and Pull days do like 25/30% less weight and keep the reps high like 15 at most and no less than 10 ?

Tennessee Mike

07-30-2008, 05:39 AM

Yes,sunday would be good.Mix up your exercises.Leg press,lunges.You donrt even have to use weights.Do cardio if you want.But instead of taking off,just get a light workout and take it easy.The point is to give yourself a rest.

De-load should be about a week.And sorry,but "Son" is a southern term.Everyone who's a male is son.My bad.

Get a spotter.Its a must.Nice workout.

The Machine Bench Press looks more hardcore than it really is, but it is a leverage machine, with plates too but not a real bar, I do that more as a warmup exercise, but it also won't kill me either :)

So to do 230lbs max on that I think is different than a real bar with 230lbs. so I would say half workouts are done on the Powertec Leverage System that uses real weight plates, and the other half with dumbbells, and e-z curl barbell.

Here is what I have;

http://www.powertecfitness.com/product.php?id=2

Plus dumbbell pairs starting form 10lbs going all the way to 50lbs. And then the curling barbell, with like 150lbs of weight for that, and then my Olympic Weight Plates of 300lbs for the Powertec System.

I have to workout in my Basement gym, because of time and the baby, it saves me a ton of time in travel back and forth just to workout at home, and each workout lasts approx 1 hour or so.

I know you don't like machines, but this thing is different I did a lot of research and it acts like free weights pretty much, but safer so I don't kill myself or get injured, but it feels very lose and free, and can pack on the weights, it can support up to like 500lbs of plates.

Sorry dude,I was late.

Chest/shoulders/triceps(what you did today was fine),mix up your side raises with front raises,alternate incline and flat bench each week.always do flyes.Do 2 tricep exercises like one arm tricep pulldowns or close grip bench.

Back,biceps(Deadlifts,lat pulldowns-underhand grip,dumbell rows,barbell curls,dumbell-one arm preachers)

Legs,abs(Squats,stiff legged deadlifts,leg extensions,any 2 kind of ab exercises)

no reverse curls,shrugs,or barbell rows this time.Same weight progression as last time,obviously heavier.Higher reps on bi's/tri's,abs.

Thanks Mike I really appreciate, sorry I got inpatient there :)

Couple of questions here please, underhand lat-pulldowns >? never tried those before, always did overhand grip, but will do those, excited to try something new.

For Chect/shoulder/tri day, do 2 types of tri work ? so how about the regular 2 hand press downs, and then maybe single arms of press downs too ?

Tennessee Mike

08-10-2008, 03:52 PM

Underhand grip will be about 12 inches apart.This will affect the lower lats a little more.And I think you can use more weight too .Bring it down to the bottom of your chest.Get a full extension at the top.Also it brings in the biceps more,so they will be properly warmed.And I would alternate close grip bench with 2 arm pressdowns each week.And maybe alternate dumbell kickbacks with one arm pulldowns.This is where you start to be instinctive with your training.The main goal is to keep it simple and progressive with your weights/reps.Any exercise you havent tried,you can always go on youtube.com and type it in and get a visual.

The exercises I can't keep upping the weight ever time is curling. It seems if I try to add weight every week to the curl bar it is too much and hard to keep good form without cheating ?

Tennessee Mike

08-12-2008, 12:57 PM

This is not a factor.Your arm exersices will not continue to go up regularly.They are smaller muscle groups that can only handle a certain amount of stress.On big lifts like bench,deadlifts,militaries,you are using 2 or 3 muscles to move the weight.Find a good weight and stick with it for awhile.As I said,your not gonna progress every week.The ideal would be to progress every third week before de load.

Tennessee Mike

08-15-2008, 01:20 PM

Are you doing them correctly?Feet close together,knees locked,and all the weight on your heels.You should feel it all in your hams.Try dumbells .Keep them at your side and when you go down(below knees) you move them in front.But you are getting some low back work,which is good for a lower body day.I do deadlifts,squats,stiff legs,hypers,pullthroughs on the same day sometimes.Its not just seperating muscle groups,but working the muscles for your big lifts on that day.(IE,SQUAT-low back,quads,hams,BENCH-Delts,tris,lats,etc)

Thanks Mike...My Wife made a comment to me last night after we put our baby daughter to bed. She said when you going to be done building up and just maintain what you have now ? I said I am just starting to get big, and she said no your already bigger, it is enough. And to me I barely even notice a difference, sure I have gotten bigger, but no where near where I want to be :) :)

Tennessee Mike

08-20-2008, 08:45 AM

Thats the mindset you must keep.Ive tried to "maintain" and it doesnt work.Thats why the deload week is good.It gives you a rest,but afterward your ready to hit it hard.When I workout,Im always trying to get bigger/stronger.But its good the wife noticed.At least she's still checkin you out.

Your consistently getting stronger,that is all you can ask for.I was looking at some of your older posts and you trained to failure alot.Thats fine sometimes,but its real hard to tell progression that way.If your weights are going up every cycle,then you KNOW you are getting bigger/stronger.Whats also important is staying with a routine for a good period of time.Consistency is key.Alot of times we get tired,or frustrated with our routine and we second guess it.You need to get negative thought like that out of your head and carry on.You will hit plateaus eventually,and you will deal with them accordingly.Your doing a hell of a job so far.

Zorachus

08-26-2008, 06:45 PM

Thanks...after my workout today I was thinking yeah I can lift these final sets not with ease but also not ball busting either, yes they are tough the 5th final sets but I do feel like I can add more weight yet again next time.

So I am making little progress step by step, but over weeks and then months I guess it is something ? I am getting little bigger too, just need to keep eating, but also my gut sometimes is a little belly, not a nice flat hard stomach either.

I think I should stick with this routine even into next year for sure, taking one week off for deload and rinse and repeat ?

Tennessee Mike

08-27-2008, 06:21 AM

6 months is good for a routine.And remember,you can always lose the unwanted weight later.Once the winter comes,you will gain weight naturally.Its better to bulk a little,then cut.I have quite a few years of bodybuilding contest dieting so I can always help you out with a cut.For now its all about trying to add as much muscle as possible.

I feel like a locomotive train, gaining steam. I can keep adding weight almost every workout and handle it. My last 5th sets are tough but never really ball busting, don't get me wrong they are freaking hard sets, but I also don't want to add too much weight each day so I end up hurting myself or puling a muscle. I am happy adding 5-10lbs each workout on a regular basis, and over time it adds up, and I feel stronger doing it this way, a little at a time :)

I should get bigger muscles doing it this way ?? Just need to keep eating well, but dang that little belly that has popped up the last couple of months :scratch:

Oh I see...so in one full month I get the hardcore workout plus the deload, all in four weeks ? That makes sense I guess, otherwise I am doing it all in 5 weeks ?

Well I have a workout tonight for BACK, should I just continue once more with hardcore. Maybe wait until next workout my LEG day and start Deloading on the 4th ??

And again the deload is like 4 sets doing 15 reps, 12, 12, and 10 ? And then reduce all weights by 25% less ??

Deload doesnt have a rep scheme.Just train by feel.Again the point is to take a rest and give your ligaments,tendons,joints a break.High reps/low weight is a good rule of thumb.But by all means,train by feel that week.Dont have a gameplan,just do what you want.Different exercises,etc

Are you doing any cardio/conditioning work?

I have not really been doing any cardio at all this whole Summer, and nice little belly.

But just got my mountain bike back from shop my buddy owns, spent like $600 bones = ouch !! ( which should have been way more ) on repairs/upgrades, new helmet, safety glasses, etc...

Anyways I used to be a big time cross country biker, riding on the horse trails and through the forest. But getting married, building a house, working, baby, etc...stopped that years ago. Well now first time in like 6 years I plan to get back into dirt riding again.

Like 3 days per week. Twice a week will be after a workout for short ride like 20min but never after a LEG day. And then a 3rd long ride once per week deep in the woods.

What is your opinion ?

Tennessee Mike

09-06-2008, 02:28 PM

Anything is good.Nothing too strenuous,because it will hamper your muscle building and recovery.I do 20-30 minutes/4 days a week on a treadmill,bike,elyptical.Just to get the heart rate up.I dont do it to burn calories,but to be in better cardiovascular shape.Remember,the heart is a muscle.

In New York visiting in-laws :) Showing off my cutie 6 month old daughter "Hana" to her great grandmother.

Now back busting balls to get bigger, was like one week off I didn't want to take, but they live in sticks no place to lift there

Thanks to T. Mike for most of this workout...but the first few pages are from the "Omega Project" on another forum, then Mike came in and fixed it for me.

Now doing Mike's version for two months and getting bigger faster than ever before, but safely and no injuries, take it slow week by week and in 6 months time per Mike should be much bigger than when started

Whats your opinion of time for each rep ? I am doing like 1-2 seconds on the push, and let it down a little slower like 2-3 seconds ? Is that the best for building size or don't get too technical about this ?

Also what about holding at the top for 1 sec or keep it fluid and moving ?

How are you feeling bro?

Pretty good actually...Will be ready to start Phase 4 next week, doing DELOAD this week.

Anything to change or add for the next phase ? I might add back the Dumbbell Shoulder Shrugs on PULL Day ?

One thing I hate is the extra little belly I have put on while gaining weight. I mean my coworkers say my arms have gotten bigger, shoulders more broad, and chest a little filled out, but my stomach has also increased :)

I am really not doing cardio, just due to time. I workout in morning before work and am pressed for time, lucky to just get my one hour in I need to workout every other day, adding cardio after just no time.

What can I do ??

Tennessee Mike

10-18-2008, 09:00 AM

Its like I said before man.Your doing things the correct way.Putting on size,and then take off unwanted fat.Its 10x harder to try and stay lean while gaining muscle.Plus winter is coming.No one see's you without a shirt but your wife..lol

I mean the fact that your getting a belly has nothing to do with a training routine.Its obviously the extra calories or your diet in general.Send me your current diet and I'll look at it and see if I can help you out.And I would add barbell shrugs on pull day.

How many calories a day are you getting to really reap the benefits off these workouts?

How many calories a day are you getting to really reap the benefits off these workouts?

Pretty good amount, will get back to you on the exact number. But I will be cutting back on the volume, I think I am doing too many isolated exercises, will concentrate more on the heavy compound movements, and maybe just 1 isolated exercise.

I have gotten the most growth ever doing the routine on this page 10, I did similar program over Summer and it worked pretty well.

Don't use machines and add volume to your leg days.

Don't use machines and add volume to your leg days.

Thanks, I really don't use the machine much at all, except for Tricep pulldowns, and Lat pulldowns, other than that it is all free weights.

What should add for LEG day ??
