When are you gonna get the size of your head to match the size of your body?

02-21-2003, 08:55 AM
Although not planned, you can read that as a sexual connotation if you so desire.

02-21-2003, 08:55 AM
Sat and Sun look sweet.

02-21-2003, 08:59 AM
yup they are.

and I like my pin head. fag.

02-21-2003, 09:09 AM
Do you feel that you can get good arm growth by doing them after your major muscle groups?? I am sure it is just a personal preference.
What does your rep and set scheme look like?
I think you and I have the same saturday schedule, that is why i work at a bar.
And i am glad you are a TOOL fan, i was listening to that song as i was typing you this message.

02-21-2003, 09:10 AM
oh yeah... where does your tricep workouts figure into your split?

02-21-2003, 09:12 AM
prob with chest or shoulders?

02-21-2003, 09:14 AM
Yeah with shoulders. Whoops missed it out.

I will post my reps, poundage etc etc starting on Monday.

02-21-2003, 09:58 AM
Bulking at 266... mind if I borrow 50 lbs of LBM?

This should be pretty damn interesting. Good luck on the 20's.

02-21-2003, 10:02 AM

He isn't huge you idiots.

He lies about his weight and lifts.

He's barely 200lbs soaking wet.

02-21-2003, 05:12 PM
You doing any shows this year Yates?

02-21-2003, 05:17 PM
Is it just me or is Yates' avatar the scariest thing since sliced bread? That thing creeps me out.

02-21-2003, 05:34 PM
200lbs! Man that's huge!

Nope. Galileo's avatar is. Show that thing to as many kids as possible and they'll never get near Mr. Jackson again.

Yates, how tall are you?
oh, and :spam: now your journal is broken in ;)

02-22-2003, 02:21 AM
Northern Monkey!!!

02-22-2003, 06:02 AM
You're gonna be huge m8...and fellas, lets not ask on an open forum what cycle he is on, thnx :)

02-22-2003, 06:52 AM
It only takes you 1 day to recover from Sat before legs? :p

Good luck, I look forward to reading your journal.


02-22-2003, 05:51 PM

Thanks Guys.

This weekend was a little crazy. It was my birthday and the boys got me a little too drunk. There was 17 of us on the town and I can't remember much. Just remember my mates taking the p!ss because my ass looked huge in my jeans. and it did.

Im 6ft 2" by the way.

02-24-2003, 07:56 AM
:hello: Yatesy!

02-24-2003, 08:17 AM

"does my ass look fat in these jeans?"

02-25-2003, 03:01 AM

Hi Sav.

OK I did shoulders and tris last nite as my TP was still hung over after my birthday weekend. puff.


3 x Behind the neck press.
Main set was a triple drop set. Starting with 200 pounds for about 6 reps.
2 x seated sides
2 x Cable sides
2 x Rear delts on pec dec (reverse)


3 x Lying ext.
Main set was 150 pounds x 8

3 x press downs.

Legs tonight. Should be a good session. Looking forward to some heavy squatting. Yeee Harrrr !!

02-25-2003, 04:17 AM
6'2" & 265#...that's pretty damn big boyo.

02-25-2003, 07:32 AM
Well thanks.

Im trying to stay in shape as well, but junk food, beer and loose women keep calling me. lol

the doc
02-25-2003, 12:13 PM

I have the same problem:thumbup:
but I am in college, so its legal... somtimes...

02-25-2003, 02:07 PM
Yates: what kinda bodyfat percentage are you at?

02-25-2003, 06:58 PM

I have this same problem! It makes staying in shape a bit harder and calls for more cardio, but it does tend to make me considerably happier, so its a worth while tradeoff :D

the doc
02-25-2003, 07:35 PM
oh yeah i forgot how much yates like teh man jooose!

02-25-2003, 07:38 PM

02-26-2003, 07:38 AM
Not as much as you my american friend. lol

OK ..... I had a really poor leg workout last night. I just felt weak and I should be moving more weight than I did for my bodyweight. I think it was a combo of not being about to deadlift for a while and not being able to train Hams for a while (I;ve had back ache).

Seated Calves x 3
Standing Calves x 3

Leg Extentions x 3
Squat x 3 (8 with 400 and 4 with 450)
Leg Press x 2 (15 with 800 and 10 with 900)

3 x leg curls
3 x abductors.

Im would say my bodyfat is around the 13 - 14% mark.

I was gonna do Cardio tonight, but I need to sleep. Lack of it is killing my diet and my workouts. It is so so ..... important on so many levels.

02-26-2003, 12:29 PM
Whats important on so many levels? Sleep, or just being in bed, perferrably for other activities :D

I agree though mate, right now I am a bit behind in sleep from the past few days studying late, and its killing my mood and focus completely!

02-26-2003, 12:37 PM
one word....mini-thins.

02-27-2003, 02:51 AM
lol. So that I don't need sleep right ? Think that beats the object babe. tut .... it's always drugs with you isn't it. lmao.

ok. I slept pretty well last night. I went to bed at 5:00pm for a couple of hours, but I became real hungry and I got this amazing craving for some "Fish and Chips." I couldn't stop it ..... so I went and had large Haddock, Chips, and mushy peas. MMMMmm it was real nice. It's not like me to eat sh!t during the week.

Just to put this into a nutshell. I skipped cardio and ate junk. Very Very poor. :(

02-27-2003, 08:11 AM
MMMMMMM nothing beats mushy peas!

02-27-2003, 08:12 AM
what exactly is a mushy pea, anyway? i thought the object of cookign veggies was to not make them mushy int he first place.

anyhoo, no, the object of mini-thins is to keep you wired enough so tyou don't notice you've had sh*t sleep. *lol*

better living through chemistry, i always say. :thumbup:

02-28-2003, 03:11 AM
Last night was a terrible.

I did chest and abs and it was a poor poor session. I think Im coming down with flu. I was so weak. It's not even worth putting down my weight and sets. I think my best was 6 reps with 300. I did 10 with that no problem the week before. :(

I went to chemist and got some flu tabs before this thing really kicks it. Feel weak and getting hot flushes. Thankfully I've still got an appetite.

Back tonight. We'll see what I can do. :(

02-28-2003, 03:45 AM

Hope you get better soon....sounds like heaps of people are flu(ish) at the moment on wbb....whats THAT about?? ;).

02-28-2003, 08:01 AM
i hope you are taking megadoses of vitamin c and zinc (like you always tell me too!) mister.

hope you feel better soon.....and stop doing all those drugs..they are affecting your immune system. tuttut ( ;) )

03-06-2003, 04:46 AM
OK. I think my Flu is pretty much gone.

Did legs last night.

I avoided squatting to give my back a rest as I've had a little trouble with it.


Seated Calves x 3
Standing Calves x 3

Leg Ext x 4
Leg Press x 4 (800 x 15, 1000 x 10, 1100 x 6)

Leg Curles x 2
Abductors x 2
Stiff leg deadlifts x 2

Back and Bi tonight.

Diet has been pretty solid this last few days. I'm giving the beer a miss this weekend too.

03-13-2003, 04:59 AM
Nothing really to report except my diet is slipping a little of late. Im eating well, but Im eating Shakes instead of real food as it's more convenient. Im a big big believer in real food over supplements. Im not happy wioth myself. Its not been my main meals, but stuff like my eggs in a morning and my cottage cheese at night.

Oh well.

Training going well.

I did 11 reps with 400 squating and 3 solid reps with 480. Not bad. Back is a little sore still.

Got chest tonight. Looking to get a PB on the Bench. We'll see. Might attempt a 400. Will report tomorrow.

Would report about nice Chicks in my Gym, but theres ZERO. :(

03-13-2003, 08:47 AM
No hot chicks in the gym? Whats the good of that?? I love my gym, its a University gym, packed with hotties!! Of course I only go in and pay attention to my training though..... erm.. something..

03-14-2003, 03:29 AM
Probably a good thing there's no hotties in my gym. I think it would put me off.

Did Chest last night.

3 x Bench
300 x 10
380 x 1
280 x 12

3 x Incline Dumbells
40k x 15
50k x 6
50k x 6

2 x Incline flys
30k x 15
30k x 12

2 x Cable Cross overs
2 x Dips

Did some ab work too.

Moving house today so I'll be knackered all weekend. Going out Sunday nite and getting hammered. Can't wait.

I had my hair coloured last nite too. and yes .... I do look Gay. lol
Did it out of pure boredom really. It's pretty blond.

Got back and Bis tonight. Hope my back hold out for some serious deadlifting.

03-14-2003, 08:24 AM
nothing wrong with looking a little gay. it jsut means your happy. :)

03-18-2003, 03:04 AM
Been burning the candle at both ends again. :(

I moved house at the weekend so that really caused me alot of stress and made me real tired. My diet was pretty terrible this weekend. I lived on McDonalds and Pizza Hut.

Did shoulders last night. Was going to do Tris too, but was too burnt out. Will do them with chest later this week.

Legs tonight. Training alone. Going to do more Calves and ham work and legg thigh works. My things are too big for my hams and calves. They need to catch up.

03-19-2003, 08:41 AM
Did legs last nite. pretty naff. Back started to hurt again so I did nothing for thighs. Probably best I give it a rest.

Hams and calves feel good tho. Gonna do abs and cardio tonight. yeee harrrrr.

Babes seen : NONE :(

03-19-2003, 08:46 AM
what's up with the back hurting?

03-19-2003, 09:04 AM
I dunno. It just kinda locks at the bottom right near my glutes. Occurs whenever I do legs or back. :(

03-19-2003, 09:15 AM
hmmm...in the middle or to the sides?

03-19-2003, 09:28 AM
middle kinda to the right. On the bone. it's not really on the muscle. takes the breath outta me and makes me go a little pale. Hurt alot. Damn thing.

03-19-2003, 09:30 AM
hmm...maybe a slipped disk or a subluxation or something. you know any good chiropractors?

03-20-2003, 03:33 AM
A few friends have recommended a few names. We'll see.

I don't think I've ever been this heavy before, maybe thats it ??!!

Did abs and 25mins of cardio on the bike last nite.

Back tonight. Im not deadlifting so my back should hold out. Well see.

I keep having a dream about this girl I see round town alot. She's not amazing, but she's very pretty. Why do I keep dreaming about her ? Its happened about 6 times in the last few months.

03-20-2003, 05:37 AM
She might be your long lost sister...

03-20-2003, 08:10 AM
Now I know your into Fu**ing your sisters down in the south, but up here in the North we only do that to our cousins. We have some standards. lol

03-20-2003, 08:13 AM
Yeah, and if you go to the west, Wales-way, they tend to go for farmyard animals.

03-20-2003, 08:14 AM
Welsh sheep-shaggers.

03-21-2003, 02:27 AM
good workout last night. Did back and Bis.

2 x chins
2 x rows with EZ bar
2 x dumbell rows
2 x pull downs to the rear

2 x barbell curls
2 x dumbells (21's)

Chest and Tris tonight.

Not going out tonight the president is coming round tho ;)

03-25-2003, 03:15 AM
Had a great session last nite.

Did legs

3 x standing calves
3 x seated calves

3 x squats (12 x 300, 8 x 400, 5 x 450)
3 x leg press (15 x 800, 8 x 1100, 15 x 700 *burn out*)
2 x Leg Ext

4 x Leg Curls.

Shoulders tonight. Im a little tired tho. Struggled to get to sleep last night.

03-25-2003, 05:04 AM
you do calves before squats/legpress?


03-26-2003, 02:36 AM

My Calves are weak plus after I've battered quadz I dread doing calves. I can never be bothered. So I like to get em out the way.

03-26-2003, 06:34 AM
Yeah I hear ya Yates. I sometimes just end up doing calves on other days than legs because I seem to always do them last and give a half-assed effort.

Deca Devil
03-27-2003, 01:00 AM
Yeah, and if you go to the west, Wales-way, they tend to go for farmyard animals.

Welsh sheep-shaggers.

Sheep....where's the sheep :D

03-27-2003, 03:11 AM
heh. Thats not my quote.

Did nothing last nite. Did some ab work in my room. Went to the pics last nite and saw "confessions of a dangerous mind". Was OK. IMO a film is always better when it has at least one nude scene. lol

Nothing to report.

Had a bit of a rock and roll weekend. It was a little wild.

Didn't go training yesterday. Doing legs tonight. Not looking forward to it. Will report tomorrow.

Get my new car soon ... woo ... hooo ..... can't wait.

04-02-2003, 10:59 AM
w00t!! gotta love rock and roll weekends! i'm spending this entire week partying like a rockstar.

04-02-2003, 11:07 AM
You spend your whole life partying like a rockstar.

In fact, maybe you should be a rockstar.

(Oh, and - hi, Yates! :hello: )

04-02-2003, 11:41 AM
*lol* true. i'm, just nurturing my inner rockstar. that's all.

04-02-2003, 11:46 AM
I'm repressing mine.


04-02-2003, 12:00 PM
let her breathe.

04-04-2003, 03:39 AM
Do you people mind. lol

Will try and update this thing more. Training doing pretty well. Diet could be better.

04-04-2003, 04:36 AM
Not been having your customary beer and protein bar eh yates ;)

04-09-2003, 02:29 AM
Bodybuilding for me at the moment is not going as it should. Been very busy with things and I've been missing meals etc etc.

No point in posting when it's like that, I could put a little disclaimer at the bottom I suppose saying "this is how NOT to do it!!!"

Will keep this thing upto date when I land back on my feet. Which will be soon.
