I guess I'm gonna try this personal journal thingy a while. Everything I read and see on the board tells me I'm overtraining. But when I try to back off, I feel like I have accomplished nothing and am getting nowhere. Maybe keeping track with it all this way will get me focused better and enable some of you to give me some much appreciated feedback. As for supplements I take one Sci-Fit 19-Nor Androstack II 30 mins before workout. I also use GNC Mega Whey for protien shakes. That's it. Oh, and eat eggs like they goin' out of style. Workout week is Chest/Tris on Mon., Back/Bis on Tues., Legs on Wed., Shoulders on Thurs., arms on Fri. and Legs on Sat. Yesterday was Chest/Tris and looked like this:
Dumbell Press 6x10/10/8/3/5/6
Incline DB Flys 4x10/8/5/7
Incline DB Press 3x9/4/8
Lying Tri blaster 4x10/8/7/9
Cable French press 3x10/10/8

Tonite was Back/Bis and looked like this:
Machine wide grip row 4x12/10/7/8
Low Cable row 3x12/10/10
Wide grip pulldown 3x12/12/8
Close grip pulldown 3x12/12/8
Bent over DB lateral 3x10/9/9
Incline DB curls 4x8/8/5/7
DB Hammer curls 4x8/6/8/10

** All sets are to failure **

Any thoughts??

Just a little more background info. All my stuff is in the garage. No A/C, no fans. It's a sweat dungeon. I love it. I've got a Keys Home Fitness center w/leg press, Smith machine, two standard benches that incline and decline, a preacher curl bench, hex DB's from 20 thru 80 lbs and a wide assortment of bars and cable attachments. And can you believe I can still get the wifes SUV in there? Anyway, thanks for any input you may have. Tomorrows Leg day, see ya then.

It would certainly be overtraining to me, but if it works best for you, by all means, stick with it. Good luck! :thumbup:

What kind of cycle are you doing with the Sci-Fit stuff?

volcamp

No cycle. Just take one 30 minutes before every workout. Works great for me.

Right on, same here dude. Just me, the garage, and the dead air in which I can smell my own sweat. I don't think your overtraining, your intensity is close to mine I like that. How much do you weigh and how much are you lifting, post some stats and keep kicking ass:evillaugh.

OK, OK, I took Friday thru Sunday off and went camping at Myrtle Beach. Missed a couple work outs. I needed it. Anyway, started over with chest/tris last nite:

Flat DB Press 6x10/10/6/6/6/8

Incline press 4x12/8/8/10

Cable French press 4x10/9/6/8

It's been in the low 90's here every day the last week with high humidity. It was swealtering in the garage. I LOVE IT!

Back/Bis tonite. Will list if I have time. Comments always welcome and appreciated. I need the moral support. I am basically a lazy @$$.

Another thought: it would be cool if you listed poundages, too. Sets/reps are gonna get old pretty soon. :p

Thanks Scott, I went back and modified my last W/O entry. Will include weights from now on. Guess the reps and sets thing is pretty bland, huh? Thanks for the suggestion and glad you took time to look.

I have nothing of value to contribute, so I'll just motivate.



Get your ass off the couch, turn off the PS2, and go work out!



You have no excuses now. ;)

Shoulders last nite. Got started late due to my daughters soccer practice. When I get a late start I usually have an attitude and don't get crap accomplished. But it went ok I thought.

Upright rows 75x10 85x10 95x8 90x9 90x7
Behind neck pr 65x10 75x10 85x8 90x6
Front raises** 45x10 55x10 60x8
Lat DB raises 25x10#
Cable shrugs 90x12 100x12 110x10 120x10

** Using bi/tri blaster bar
# Left shoulder felt like a slight pull so I stopped with the laterals.

In lookin' at everybody's journals, I like the diet info. Am thinking about doin' it myself but I really have a hard time makin' myself sit down and enter this stuff. Anyway:

M1 3 eggs O/E 1 slice wheat toast w/sugar free apricot jelly
M2 Protien drink
M3 2 grilled chicken breasts and 1 TBSP PB
M4 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
M5 will be something from the Outback!!!

Looks like the training is going ok dude. Dnt stress about missing a workout stress more when you miss a meal. Give us some stats height, weight etc to give us an idea of where your training is going. If your brave enough maybe even a photo. Also try to list how much sleep you get so we can evaluate your recovery time. Good look bro. Dnt become discouraged and keep posting. Ive not long started a journal and it takes time for people to start becoming intrested. Now go do some squats!
