View Full Version : Tumbler's Road to 220lbs

04-16-2010, 01:54 PM
Alright I'm sitting at 203lbs at 6'1-6'2". I weighed about 170 when I as 18, I'm 20 now. So 35 lbs of LBM (about the same BF% now as I was then) isn't too shabby for 2 years but it could be WAY better. I'm going to crank up the intensity and dieting and pack on some mass. My lifts (especially bench) have been pretty stagnant for a while I think if I up the intensity and diet I should be able to break this plateau.

I put together a routine I'm going to be starting once school gets out, until then I'm going to continue on with my body part split that I've been doing for most of this school year. Its built around the BGB routine with an extra lift or two of assistance added, let me know what you think:

Monday - Horizontal push/pull (calves and abs)
Bench 5x5
Incline DB 3x8
Flies 3x12
Rack pulls 5x5
Bent over rows 3x8

Tuesday - Quad/Bicep
Full squats 5x5
Leg Press 3x8
Leg curls 3x12
EZ bar curls 3x8
Alternating curls 3x8(or 12)

Thursday - Vertical push/pull (calves and abs)
Chins 5x5
Hammer High rows 3x8
Military press 5x5
Standing laterals 3x8

Friday - Hamstring/Triceps
Romanian Deadlift 5x5
Good mornings 3x8
Skull crushers 3x8
Cable pushdowns 3x12

Today's workout (shoulder/Tri)
Seated military press - barx6, 95x6, 135x5, 140x5, 140x5(f), 135x2x5
Upright rows - 90x8, 110x2x8
Laterals - 3x8
Skull crushers - bar+70lbs - 3x8
V bar pushdowns - 140x8, 160x8, 180x7

I'm hoping this journal and some feedback from you other members will keep me motivated.

Skull crushers - 45x10, 105x16 (rest paused)
