Have you thought about smarties candy post workout? They contain dextrose and maltodextrin which would be beneficial in aiding in glycogen replenishment. Then about 30 minutes later drink a big glass of milk to get in some protein. Just a thought. Workouts looking good.

If you are trying to pack in the cals you might consider drinking more milk. I notice that you drink it with your other meals. This would be a good way to get in more cals and protein.

Monstar - yeah i think they are pretty good actually...they've always been one of those fav excercises of mine and i dont have a dipping station, so i just do those....for me they work pretty good....try em out they're pretty tight....its hard to gauge what weight to use tho, because i keep adding weight and its not totally that difficult,i might just put 2 45's next time n see how that goes

Nice job on the chins Skillz, 17 is really impressive. Dont take this the wrong way man but your BB curl strength doesnt seem to match up with the rest of your strength. Even with your preacher curls youre doing what? 75-80 lbs.? You can BB curl 120 for like 8 cant you? To me its not making much sense...

Maybe I just have weak biceps. :confused::confused:

Skillz
03-31-2003, 09:14 PM
to tell u truth, i'm not sure how accurate is, cuz i'm assuming that the ez curl bar is 15 lbs...and i just stack 25's on each side and put a 5 on, and i'm able to do those...i can only regular curl like 105 x 3....i'm not sure what it is, i keep strict form on em and everythin...maybe i'm in accurate sumwhere, but honestly its not a big deal to me cuz i dont care for biceps a whole lot...plus i just set the bar as being 15 lbs, so i can just gauge if i progress or not u kno? but i understand wat u mean...for me its not the amount of weight, its just if i progress or not that matters....so on sum stuff, just preacher curls really, thats the only one that might be inaccurate as to weight wise

but i dont bring it up, and if i would bring up how much i would do i would mention that stuff

For making Westside bodybuilding as well, perhaps working toward hypertrophy on DE days, while having ME days stay the same?

thanks alot man i appreciate it for real...i'm really happy for the support in my log n everything

by the way i'd just like to add, to be more honest...that its more like i do 15, or 16 complete chin ups, but i usualy count the last few reps even though they are partial because of the time under tension i keep as a negative (meaning, i hold myself up even if i only go half way)...but its usually for last 2 reps, the first ones are always complete

but thanks neways man i appreciate it alot, just thought i'd let u kno the deal to be honest and clear u kno

MonStar
04-05-2003, 07:07 AM
No problem Skillz. Also, you might want to mention that about your chins when you list the exercise. Because that can be very misleading to readers. For example maybe something like this:

Underhand Chins: BW x 16 + 2 (partials)

Just a suggestion. ;);)

Skillz
04-05-2003, 10:44 AM
ok that sounds coo i might start doing that...i never really used to do that before because i thought no one paid attention to my journal lol, so i just posted it that way since i knew what was going on u kno? same wit sum excercises, like preacher curls or dumbbell shoulder press....i'll not be able to get last rep up at times, but i have it partially up, and i'll just hhold it for a few seconds that way and count it as a rep...just for my personal reference

but now that more ppl r startin to check out my journal (thanks everyone!) i'm a try to make it more clear to everyone, but thanks for the advice MonStar sounds good! and thanks for checkin out my journal once again

i'll talk to my training partner more n make our choices...i plan on starting my jogging/sprinting and other cardio and agility excercises once spring break starts...wanna get my speed back, and my endurance....

as for my weight, i dont kno if i've mentioned this already or not....but my scale is i guess 7 lbs off i guess, so i must weigh more than what i list..but i'm jjust gonna list what my scale says because i'm not totally sure, but i'll just use my scale to guage progress

cant wait till july either, have a few more months! i get to measure body fat %, measure my arms, legs, etc.....get to weigh myself and see how much i've progressed in a 6 month span

thanks Monstar...the first few days felt great, i felt real good, but now i'm so wantin to get into workin out! i gained 1.5 lbs this week, but i feel smaller, but i guess its because i dont feel big unless i'm hitin the weights! cant wait to max out this week....legs on monday, chest/shoulders on wednesday, and back/biceps on friday! wish me luck

i think i'm gonna try 315 on squats (a bit past parallel) and see how many times i do that
225 on bench and see how many times i do that
and 405 on deadlifts and see how many times i get that
also on the other lifts, maybe 165 or sumtin on military press (rotator cuff probs always make me drop weight on these)...and 225 on barbell rows and see how many times i get that

thanks, i try to push it as hard as i can

when i say max, yea i mean to failure...but it isnt necessarily a one rep max.....i usualy try to use a weight i can get more than once, but less than 3 times....but if i happen to get it more than 3 times, i just record how many times till failure....pretty much try to get a 2 repper, but its newhere between a range of 1 - 4 reps...just tryna see how much a heavy weight max, instead of my rep weight (usin newhere from 6-10 reps)

Damn I haven't had a bowl of Kix since I was like 13. Diet and routine look ace man (BTW I think the EZ bar actually weighs closer to 20-25lbs). You're like me, only 2 or 3 sets for each excercise, except for more on squats because they rule :D. How's the bulk going? Gaining some good LBM?

I was wondering how do you do your calf raises? I assume you're doing it with a barbell across your shoulders?

and oh yeah, let's see some progress pics

Skillz
04-27-2003, 12:39 AM
thanks for checkin out my journal Saint Patrick

yeah kix r the best, i still eat em....thanks, yeah i just assume the ez bar is less, because if u think bout it....if i'm sayin doin less n in actuality doin more, at least i kno its not vice versa

the bulk is goin good, gainin sum good mass, but also a lil fat, but i aint trippin, i kno its inevitable

yeah i do my calve raises with just a barbell across my shoulders...kinda strains my back tho, so i'm thinkin bout switchin to seated calve raises

i'l try to get pics as soon as possible

Skillz as far as the diet just try and make sure that you are getting enough protein and healthy fats and you should be fine. Keep eating those pb sandwiches and maybe throw in some buts of some sort (peanuts, cashews,etc).

Lifts are looking good man and good luck in reaching the goals you have set forth.

thanks Bradley i appreciate it

actually i'm a stay on 335 till i get that up 8 times....the way i do it, is if i get a weight up 6 times on a week, then just keep usin that weight till i get it up 8 times, then i increase weight..so increase reps first, then increase the weight basically..but its all good though, i cant wait to be doin higher weight for reps

oh yeah bout the cough, thanks man, i want it go away badly

I know that sometimes when you are sick it's a good idea to train through it, but I think sometimes with these nagging flus or whatever, training can just keep you down for a lot longer. Since your body is trying to recover from the cold and also recover from the workouts. So if you don't get better soon maybe take a few days off and that may do the trick.

bradley
05-13-2003, 08:18 AM
Hope you continue feeling better. You are still throwing around some nice weight to be sick.

I agree with El Pietro in that if you continue to have the nagging cough and congestion you might think about taking a few days off so that your body can fully recover.

nice, i see it all the time, you need to do this, you need to do that, what ghetto said, yeh some dext and whey would be good postworkout, but i love how you think, some people go nuts about getting the details down perfect about their diet , forget it, have fun with this game, try to eat good it'll all workout in the end

so are you taking it easy with the bronchitis for a couple days or what?

yeah, thas wat i'm sayin kook...i mean if ppl r on whey n dextrose, thas all good, u kno, thats their thing...n if ppl r on more stuff like AAS, thats still all coo thats their thing...but i'm just the type, u kno, i dont wanna go completely out of my way for the "perfect" diet n stuff....i just try to eat healthy u kno, in general, go out of line here n there once in a while...get my sleep n work out....n if it works it works, nits workin so i'm keepin it up...but no doubt, Ghettosmurf is just lookin out , u kno tryna giv advice, so i'm down wit that...thanks GS, just not my thing tho

i'm still workin out hard, i'm on medications so i aint coughin up much, just doin my thing u kno, workin out hard

just thought i'd mention, i got hired for a job on wednesday, worked 2 days already..tutoring a kid wit ADD, 10 bucks an hr, one hr a day, 4 days a week....small job, but hey its money

That split looks good IMO. Only thing is you might be careful with that many pressing movements on shoulder/chest day. If you think you are overtraining the delts you might want to cut back on the number of sets, but then again you might not have any problem at all with it. Just give it a shot and see how it goes:)

yeah i was thinking the exact same thing...i'm debating whether i should drop the overhead shoulder press or sumthin, or drop a 1 set on a chest exercise or sumthin....biut yeah i'm tryin wat u said neways, u kno, just see how it goes, test it out, fix what needs to be fixed, and if gains work well keep workin with it
