I am interested in your routine, being that you are a very vocal member of the WBB forums. I am also not to good with the metric system, like many other Americans, can you post the pounds?

Hellrazor
06-19-2002, 12:10 PM
Ok I`ll give it a shot mate....just means using a calculator all the time but what the hell from now on I will try and post in lbs.

It`s a pretty basic low volume routine squats, deads included.....cant do bench..( always seem to overstrain my front delts) 6 sets larger, 4 smaller..with drop sets, super sets etc...every now and then for a bit of variety. At around week 3 My first set of each excercise will be for 2 - 4 reps but for now just settling in.

Glad you`re interested anyway...lets see how it goes, I`m supplementing with the usual stuff, whey, glutamine, glucosamine, vit mins and just started on creatine which will be taken post workout along with 60g of dextrose and 50g whey.

Havent broken down my diet yet but am getting at least 6 solid meals a day..

Meal 1

2 x toast with peanut butter
bowl porridge w/ semi skimmed milk.
30g whey
glass fresh orange.

Meal 2.

Wholemeal pasta
1 tin tuna
1 apple
2 amino tablets

Meal 3

wholemeal rice
chicken breast
serving of cottage cheese

Meal 5

2 x steak
mashed potato
gravy lol....gonna have to get rid of the gravy..but yummmmm.

Meal 6

2 x Jacket potatoes
1 tin tuna
2 amino tablets

Meal 7

2 x toast with peanut butter
30 g whey, casein mix with semi skimmed milk.

Just started a few days ago. On workout days I`m having 60g dext, 50g whey post workout.

Well today my pecs are still as sore as R. Kellys bumhole, sooooo I guess I wont be training back tomorrow.

Makes sense any way so I can train sun, mon, wed, thu then friday and saturday are my days off work and I hate training on my days off. So my next post will be sunday 23rd. Sayonara....Oh slept at a girls house last night who had no grub whatsoever apart from cheese and tomato sauce...scruffy minger. So I had to have burned toast and a twix for breakfast....****.

Right I was so excited I decided to train today

Back and abs.

Deadlifts ( I knew these would go up today woooooo )

198lb - 2 x 9. Used straps but again grip failed before back, need to do more grip work. Happy with poundages though. Need to get back to at least 242lb for ten reps, shouldnt be too hard. NOTE TO SELF = MORE GRIP WORK.

Force strength pulldowns

165lb 2 x 10. Used straps, I decided to add another 11lb from last workout, seemed ok. sweet.

Force strength low row

110lb x 13..too light, 143lb x 10..spot on next week 145 for 2 sets.

Weighted ab bench crunches

16.5lb x 10, 22lb x 9...sweet abs are getting stronger.

Weighted decline crunches

22lb x 10, 33lb x 7.....abs are blitzed.

Had a good cool down / stretch afterwards, lower back is nowhere near as stiff as it was last week which is good, lets see how I feel tomorrow, ....Chest and tri`s tomorrow I think...hmm yes.

Did you just say that your lifts were 'pants'?

Hellrazor
06-23-2002, 02:27 PM
lol yeah, its english slang for crap, sh!t, pathetic etc..etc..

22/6/02

Decided not to train today as went partying last night, had extreme amount of alcohol, tried to keep hydrated but failed miserably and woke up at 10am next to a fat minger with a dodgy eye.....hmmm had to be at work for 12 so...will train tomorrow chest and tri`s. yes indeedy.

Lower back and rear delts feel toasted, right hamstring slightly pulled..hmm note to self = STRETCH HAMSTRINGS THOROUGHLY BEFORE DEADLIFTING. Abs...ok which is good as I`ll do them again tomorrow with chest n tri`s.

NOTE TO SELF = LESS PARTYING AND WAKING UP WITH UGLY FEMALES.

Flat dumbell press

66lb db`s 2 x 9, 8 + 2 forced reps.

Whoooo I kicked ass today big time......went out last night, woke up still drunk and dehydrated as a mofo and thought erm...I shouldnt really train today, but then I trhought of drunken deadlifts and thought it`d be fun lol. Drank a sh!t load of water had some food then went to work..well trained first.

Now even though I felt like **** I thought hmm.. I may try and conquer 220 today...threw my straps to the ground and picked the mofo up...

Deadlifts....1st small goal reached

220 x 10, whooooooo...220 x 5 ...erm..grip was absolutely gone and I felt a pull in my flexors which was quite painful. Massaged it and went onto..

Force strength lat pulldown

176lb x 10, 9....I am an animal, the reps were strict as hell too....with straps though. :(

One arm dumbell row

55lb x 13, 9. Hmm I usually go a lot heavier with these but I think I used to rotate the spine too much to swing the weight up so...better form.

I had an urge to one set of single arm cable rows for some reason

77lb x 12.

Shrugs - yep I`ve decided to add traps to back day.

55lb x 12, 10.

Smith shrug behind

88lb x 12, 10.

Even though all lifts went up It didnt feel like a good workout ?? Strange..well see how it goes next time, chest and tri`s tomorrow.

Force strength press

165lb x 10, 8 .....sweet went up on these also.

Machine flyes.

143 x 12...sweet, only got 12 on 125lb last week so I`m doing something right..maybe I was doing too many sets.

Close grip bench

110lb x 10, 8 + 2 forced...up again hehehe

skull crushers

77lb x 6, 5 + 2 forced.....hmm a little too heavy, I`ll stick to 72 next time I think.

44lb x 13.

All in all another awesome workout stronger in all lifts except skulls..but It`s the 1st excercise that counts right ?? legs on wednesday..cant wait.

Yeah, Now I`ve finally found it in me do actually do a journal and record everything , I cant wait to get into the gym, and going up each week is sweet.

I was going to do a course but hell no, not now...as soon as I hit a plateau on this I`m going to do something totally different. I`ve only been doing this a few weeks now and everyone keeps saying how good I`m looking lately, some of my mates think I`ve started the course lol

Shoulders and biceps.erm...havent actually trained yet I was just excited I will edit it later when I come back....lataz.

Shoulders and biceps.

Dumbell press

121 x 11, 9....oh my god I felt sweet, up in reps tonight baby, went straight into a drop set with 97lb then 77lb and then..

Force strength press behind the neck

110lb x 8, 99lb x 7.......weaker but obviously because of the drop set, ....but wait whats that? 3 amazing girlies walk into the gym and it suddenly turns into an all out instinctive pumpfest !!

I proceed to do about a million sets of cable laterals in a very pathetic effort to get my delts all pumped and impress the laydees..NOTE TO SELF - U SAD TOSSER DONT EVER DO THAT AGAIN !!! So yeah the routine went off the rails a little,but hey I said id do an instinctive session every 3 weeks... TBC

Tryska
07-04-2002, 05:30 PM
do you start moaning and groaning during your sets when the chicks walk by so they know how hard your working?

i've got a guy at my gym who i swear does that. dunno if it's on purpose or uhhhh..instinctual.

Yeah I support Boro, cant wait for juno`s return .....Nah I don`t moan and groan Tryska, I`m not that sad...usually, I dont know why I did it but trust me it wont happen again, besides one of the girls has actually shown interest in me and there may be romance on the horizon..so I guess it worked.

Can i just say how much I`m enjoying writing this journal, and knowing people are actually interested is a great bit of motivation, I just cant belive I`m getting stronger in every session. Well my next session will be sunday when I WILL conquer 220lb for at least 2 x 8..that is a guarantee.

NOTE TO SELF = Dont dare ever miss another leg day, it is weak and gay.

Dumbell press

154 x 6 + 2 forced, 5 + 2 forced.....sweet.

Force strength

176 x 4...cack, shouldnt have put that much on...
154 x 6...suffered a little there, guess its cos I went heavier on the dumbell press.

Few hours later

Close grip bench

Legs.

ATF Squats

132 x 12 ( warm up ) , 198 x 13, 11...hmm..maybe i`ll add a few pounds next week so I fail on 10 for my 1st set.....Fook me that was super intense, I needed to puke.

Plate loaded horizontal leg press

440 x 13, 484 x 11...my god these were insanely intense I had one of the hardest lads in boro telling me to get angry and keep going so naturally I went to extreme failure and couldnt stand up for about a minute.......thought about doing lunges but after attempting to do a normal lunge and falling to the floor made me decide not to.

5 mins later when I felt well enough..

Lying Leg curls

66 x 10, 77 x 8.....my hams are weak as piss, cant do many sets as they`re always extremely sore even after 2.

Calf raises

247 x 13, 264 x 9......was going to do another set but decided not to as I felt really ill, headache, fever etc..so went and had lovely cool shower ( forgot to cool down and stretch ) BAD MISTAKE ...NOTE TO SELF = dont ever do that again u fookin eedyat. 2mozza is shoulders and biceps grrrrrrr....

Dumbell press

121 x 11, 6 + 2 forced....bah worse than last time

Force press behind

121 x 8, 8 ...Hmm..better on these than last time but remember last time I had done a drop set on dumbell presses so.not that good really.

Cable laterals

22lbs 2 x 10 and 1 drop set.

Barbell curl ( 1st time in years as used to be very painful on forearms )

66lb x 9, 7...sweet..wasnt too bad, hurt like hell when I let go though.

Cable curls

44 x 8, 7...not too shabby....then for some bizarre reason I decided to do 1 set of close grip underhand pulldowns

165 x 8....hmm biceps were like blimps I like that !

So pretty disappointing but next time I`m gonna smash thgese lifts I swear.

Yes, yes you are very correct here. It is especially distracting when you have a nice fresh piece of quim floating around in spandex while you're trying to psych yourself up for a couple more reps.

It may have to do with alterations in blood flow, I'm not sure.

Anyway, enough spam... keep up the good work, dude . . . looks like you're progressing apace.

Back

Deadlifts....decided to do only 1 heavy set of deadlifts on back day and the rest lat work...so attempted

265lb x 3....whoah that was pants, grip went straight away.

force strength lat pulldown

198 x 7, 187 x 9.....Will try both sets on 187 next time...

Seated low pulley row

125 x 10, 9......Felt weak as piss on these..hmm havent done these in ages though so...( bad excuse )

one arm dumbell row

77 x 9, 8.....( anyone help is it dangerous to rotate the spine slightly on the way down, i like the weight to touch the floor before I row it back up )...oh well not too bad on these.

Barbell shrugs

154 x 10, 9....1st time I ever did these...felt sweet but again my fookin grip was going.

smith shrugs behind

132 x 12, 11.....hmm usually only use 88lb on these and I trained traps with shoulders the other day, maybe they have excellent recovery and get strong quite quick..or maybe I`m just talking shite, probably the latter.

Well another average workout..next week will be immense, I`m going back strictly to the routine i started at first and see how much I`ve progressed, I know it hasnt been long but....

Chest and triceps

Right I decided to give bench pressing a whirl, havent benched in about 2 years, figured it would do me some good ( I still have this shitty injury though..which isnt getting better or worse just staying the bloody same ).

Incline barbell press

tried 132 and got 10 easy so went for..

154 x 8, 6.....Oh man that is childrens weights..bah but fook me my front delts and pecs were killing partly from the pump and partly because when I tried benching in the past it nacked my front delts..today was no exception.its now abt 10pm and they feel very weak and shaky.

Incline dumbell press

77`s x 3 ??? wtf..that bench obviously wiped me out so i grabbed the 60`s x 7, 7...bah this is not good.

machine flye

176 x 7, 158 x 9.....hmmm felt weaker on these too.

Close grip bench

110 x 10, 8.

One arm dumbell extension

26lb x 4 ??? what the....oh man I`m weak..
22 x 7, 6......I give up lol...my tri`s were pumped like hell off these though which was nice....bah see what happens next week when i go back to my original routine.

Hey Tryska, I dont know what it is, neither does my doctor, the hospital wouldnt x - ray it....it`s pissing me off, You suggested it might be chostochondritis, it hurts real bad when I wake on a morning, but not when I train chest..however it does hurt when I do pulldowns, do a sit up or if I`m in a dip position???? It`s been around 15 weeks now I think, it`s really bugging me.

Well it`s my day off today, Legs tomorrow I can`t wait !!! Hehe

Hellrazor
07-17-2002, 03:11 AM
yep, but not all the time, its worse when I go into a crunch or try to dip. Is it chostochondritis Tryska? Will applying heat rub help ? I rub deep heat in and it seems to ease it a little.

No Tryska, from what I remember I was fine, but I do suffer with a lot of colds, chest infections etc...as I have asthma and suffer with hayfever.

I had done a heavy set of dumbell press for 2 - 4 reps then went onto weighted dips at 2 x 8. Everything was fine, didnt feel like I`d strained anything, but it was the next day when I got up that I felt it.

Today I trained........Legs.......holy sh!t, what a workout I had today..

ATF Squats

198 x 13, 220 x 11...failed at around 9 and was spotted for 2. Going for a straight 2 sets with 100k next week. ***Tryska my chest hurts quite a bit when squatting also...***

Leg Press

484 x 13...fook me my legs are getting a lot stronger, decided to add another 10k....506 x 9...excellent, next week both sets will be 506lbs. I felt great after doing these, but my question is, is this enough work for quads..it seems to be working so..if it`s not broken don`t fix it, just seems like 4 sets is not enough.

Leg curls

77 x 9, 7....cool I`ve progressed on these also.

Calf raises

264 x 12, 12 . 330 x 9......Calves were even a lot stronger, hmmm just remembered my PECS ARE STILL SORE !!!!!!
Maybe its cos I did barbell for the first time in ages, see how it goes next week

ABS

Ab bench crunches

22lb x 11, 8

Rotary torso

88 x 8, 6.

For some reason I have been neglecting my abs over the past few weeks , it`s mainly because it hurts my chest when I do them and it really bugs me, All in all I was well impressed with todays workout..SWEET.

here's a link (http://209.171.47.147/iissamples/issamples/InfoFrame.asp?Page=http://www.rxmed.com/RxMed/b.main/b1.illness/b1.1.illnesses/COSTOCHONDRITIS.htm&HostUrl=http://www.rxmed.com) that explains what costochondritis is. Not sure if it applies, because it does say along the sternum, between the ribs.

Thanks Tryska, sounds painfully farmiliar hehe, theres no way I`m going to stop training now, I stopped for about 13 weeks and didnt make a blind bit of difference. It was still pretty bad everytime I woke up. It says on the site it is only usually short periods, I`ve had it for months ??? I`m going back to see the doctor.

yesterday....too drunk to remember the date...

Shoulders and biceps

Fook me what a workout I said I`d smash all lifts and I did,

Dumbell press

66lbers x 10, 7.....happy there.

Force press behind neck

128lb x 13, fook me....132 x 9...well pleased.

Cable laterals

22lb x 13, 11...extremely slow and strict.

Barbell curl

66lb x 9, 8.

Cable curls

44lb x 9, 7............I went up in every single lift..whooooo, i guess its cause I been taking a few extra calories in over the past few weeks, protein bars between meals mostly as the gym I work in just started selling them, they only 10g of protein but ...and I started creatine so that will be one of the major factors, all in all a superb workout, then i did the unthinkable.....I went out and got lashed....DUN DUN DERRRRRRR..hehe I feel ill today.

Back and traps

Deadlifts ..( decided to do 1 set of singles rather than the usual 2 x 8 - 10 ). Was pretty awkaward as I did them on the lowest pin in the power rack and the bar was sliding after every rep..

242 x 6....Didnt feel right for some reason, grip went far too early, I preferred doing sets of 10 with 220!! Oh well I`l keep going with these for a while.

Force lat pulldown

198 x 10, 8 + 2 forced.........Hmm better than last week. :)

Low pulley row

132 x 10, 8......again beat last weeks weight, :)

One arm dumbell row

77 x 8, 7 hmmm...worse than last week I got 9, 8 last week, probably just because of going up on all the other lifts.

Now when I did traps today it felt sh!te, I`m going to move them to shoulder day so my grip is better as my grip was going way before my traps had been stimulated enough.

barbell shrug

154 x 10, 9....

Behind shrug on smith

176 x 12, 11...........crap, crap crap..could barely feel it, but my forearms were blitzed, Bah.. The highlight of the session was some of the lads I work with came over and said my chest was looking a lot bigger and asked if I had started my course hehe wait til I do, then they`ll get a shock. It was just because the t-shirt I had on was very thin cotton and my pecs were quite visible wher I usually wear jumpers `n sh!t !

Chest and triceps....crapping myself in excitement to see if my bench goes up.

Incline bench press

Well I was about to start with 154, when my friend and work colleauge came over, called me a pussy and insisted I banged another 5k each side, so started on 165 x 9, then 7 + 2 forced reps......quality, well better than last week.

Incline dumbell press

Made a bee line for the 66lbers before some other twat grabbed em, ( theyre like golddust in our gym ), banged out 66 x 8 + 2 forced, 8 + 2 forced so 2 x 10 really, ACE..well better than last week, I remember my forearms were killing me last week from back day, but were ok today.

Machine flyes

176 x 9 + 1 forced, 159 x 8 + 2....pecs are toast now....so I swiftly scuttled over to the smithy for.....

Close grip bench

Decided to try a little more weight today and went for....

132 x 10 + 1 forced, 8 + 1 forced, fook me thats like an extra 22lb increase, were slow and strict too........NOTE TO SELF : Low volume training is the dogs testicles.

Skull crushers

66lb x 9 + 1 forced, 8 + 1 forced......now these I struggled with, because of the increase in weight on the close grip bench, tri`s were superbly pumped after these and I then scurried downstairs and had my stupendous post workout piss potion, tastes like arse but is TOP NOTCH. TBC......

Well training has been non existent the past few days, had a lot on my mind and have been to a 3 day trial at court. My pecs are still sore from monday, which is a little worrying. My lower back has been killing me the past few days also, dont know if it`s from deads or squats..but is not good. I am back into training tomorrow...LEGS.

Hahaha Thanx Tryska, I think I put a few pounds back on since I started training again, I has around 15 weeks off due to my bloody chest injury, oh and as for the court case, I wasnt on trial but I was a witness to my friend who was, nerve wracking sh!t I tell ya. Anyway the jury didnt decide on a verdict so it got kicked out.

I taught a boxercise class and joined in with squats lunges etc.. ( bad idea ), and also joined in a pilates class at work yesterday.

I feel terrible my knees are hurting and my back too so I`m skipping training today, WEAK I know but its better to be safe than sorry, I cant picture doing heavy squats today, plus my friend just had a baby girl so we`re going out to wet the babys head, wouldnt like to wake up tomorrow being hung over and not being able to walk.

Well, as much as I hate to say this I`ve fuckin done it again, my journal has gone arse over tit. I`ve decided to have a week off anyway as my back and shoulders are feeling worse for wear.

Most of the workouts in the past 2 weeks have been a waste of space anyway, next week i`m starting on a course of roids so my routine will change a little. I`ve decided that the deadlifts and squats are doing more harm than good and really need to do a check on my form before continuing with them and a big decrease in weight lifted to make sure my form is spot on. For now I`m going to use the leg press and lunges for quads and skipping deads..( for now ) until my back is feeling better.

Indeed, most of my friends laugh at me when i advise them to eat at least 5 good meals a day when they take their gear, hence they never gain any size hehehe .

Yeah I have my diet all planned BB, I have everything i need, steaks, 1000 tins of tuna, a 5lb tub of whey, creatine, patsa and rice by the bucketload, and a shitload of chickens lol. I`m going to be aiming for at least 6 meals, its hard cause i work full time but I`ll make sure I eat, even if I get the sack...I hate my job anyway!

2 x 8, 1 set to failure @ 7 reps...hmm back and biceps were superbly pumped from these.

Chest - ( 9 sets ) last set of each exercise to failure - well this is what i planned !

Incline barbell press 154 x 10 ( nearly failed ) wtf?? strength has dropped since last week quite a bit, 176 x 6 ( failure ) Oh my word there goes the plan out the window. dropped back down to 154 x 10. I will stick to 154 next time.

Flat dumbell press

77lb x 10, 9 ....88lb x 9 ( f ) ...excellent, again added another 11lbs and kept reps the same.

Again I didnt have enough time to do abs, these are getting neglected due to time restraints, however i feel they are getting sufficient work in deads, squats etc..

Well it was a good session and pecs are not too sore today, back day ...

Hey Tryska! Nah, just waiting on the results of the chest x - ray, I`m going to see the doc tomorrow. It`s still bugging me like hell, seems to be fine while training chest, only really feel it during intense peak contraction of the pecs.

Well today is going to be legs...gonna smash last weeks lifts.

Legs

Squats...hmmm went to warm up with 110lb and was feeling pain in my hip flexors, warmed up on bike and stretched em a little, started again, still putting too much strain on flexors so decided to skip.

Last week I had a dull prolongued pain in the extreme lower part of my back, felt like where my left erector inserts into the illiac crest ( if it does ) havent read an anatomy book in years. Got it again today when doing lunges, hmm I`ll have to be real careful.

Leg press

550lb x 10, 594lb x 10..still quite easy...616lb x 8 ( failuire ).

Dumbell Lunges...figured I`d give these a go, havent done them for years.

66lb ( total )..9, 9, 10 ( failure )..fook these burned like hell.

Leg extension

143lb x 10, 158lb x 7, 6 ( failure )..:) lot heavier than last week.

Leg curls

121lb x 10, 132 x 8, 7 ( failure )..:) Improvement again.

Rotary calf

330lb x 15, 13 ( f ), 11 ( f ).

Calf raises

213lb x 10 ( f ), 11 ( f )...15lb increase :)

Good workout, felt like a pussy for not doing squats though, legs are sore as hell today, I like lunges, think I`ll alternate between squats/ lunges.

Wow, just been looking back at my journal and noticed how much I`ve progressed over the past few months, heres a lil list of a few of the excercises !

Db shoulder press + 44lb
Db bench press + 66lb
Pec flye machine + 81lb
Squat + 66lb
Deadlift + 76lb
Seated leg curl + 33lb
Leg press + 132lb
One arm Db row + 55lb !!!

That is totally ACE in my book, just seeing that makes all the hard work worthwhile and it`s not JUST because of the gear as I`ve ONLY just began to feel an increase in strength ( I`m into the third week )...Hopefully within the next few weeks I will smash these also....hehe :)

Force press behind neck

154lb x 7, 7 ( + 2 reps from last week ) 143lb x 9 + 1 forced ( + 2 reps from last week :) )

88lb x 7, 7 ( + 2 reps from last week ) 77lb x 7 ( failed )..( stayed the same ).

Chest and triceps...whooo !

Dumbell press

176 x 8 ( failed ), 6 ( near failure ) , 8 ( failed ) :) whoo all 3 sets with the 40`s !!!!! Reps have gone all to pot though but hey progression is the key.

Pec flye machine

191lb x 11 ( near failure )..TOO EASY, 209lb x 7 ( near failure ), 224lb x 6 ( failed ...WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ).

Machine chest press ( benches were full of wankers )

Full stack = 330lb ( well thats what it says but it sure isnt the actual weight, probably more like 176 !! ) x 13, 10, 7 ( failed ). Felt crap compared to bench but what the hell IMPROVISATION, better than waiting 2 hours for all the curl jockeys to finish !

Tricep extension machine ( again couldnt get a bar and girlfriend was yapping in my lughole due to a powercut in the gym causing all the cardio to go off )

88lb x 12 ( failed ) , 99lb x 8 110lb x 8 ( failed )

Pushdowns

88lb x 12 ( failed....too light ) 99lb x 7, 7 ( failed )..whoooooo, my tri`s were probably stronger as I didnt do skulls, wont miss them next time though, well felt a little different today, TRAINING IN THE DARK AND WITH MY GIRLFRIEND ???????

All in all a nice workout, was well happy with the dumbell presses and flyes, as from next week I`m switching to dumbell flyes and bench press see how i go with them..chow for now.

I'm confused. Are you totalling both DB's to come up with your weight?

Hellrazor
10-01-2002, 08:18 AM
yeah each dumbell is 40k = 88lb so 88lb x 2 = 176.

Otherwise I`d mean I lift 2 x 176lb dumbells and that would be a feat hehe.
