Im cutting. I dropped my calories to 3000. I think I am going to add 200, I need some more carbs to help get through workouts. Plate pinches are great for the top of my forearms, I don't really feel anything on the lower part of my forearm. I got a captains of crush gripper about a year ago and it has helped my grip but I don't think that has really aided me in my lifts, since im not a powerlifter anymore.

*shrug on bodyfat* I dunno. Where do you think your bodyfat is in relation to mine? (Prior to illness, of course. God knows what my body has done over the last weeks.)

Do some deadlifts... :D

LOL. I'm a bodybuilder. My goal is to build muscle. I don't gain much muscle doing deads. I gained 100lbs in less than 2 years when I was a powerlifter doing deads. Now strength you can gain doing deads! But I haven't noticed any more mass from them.

I thought your goal was more muscle, not just strength? :D For Lying tricep extensions do you use db's with both hands or do you do a barbell or something.

Uh. . . :confused: My goal is more muscle. Where do you get the idea i'm training for strength? I use an EZ-Bar. Ok nevermind. I'm referring to my weak ass bi's. I need to strengthen them up to handle more weight to get BIGGER. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! :evillaugh

Thought I'd let you know that I'm gonna try out your lifting plan for a couple of weeks. I just got off a strength cycle and I need something to pack on some muscle now that I can lift more.

Do you periodize your intensity on that plan or just go to failure every week?

TreeTrunks

I progress every other week 5-10lbs pending on the exercise.

While recovering from strep throat the last week or so I decided when I get better its time to get harcore about bodybuilding. I was reading through some BBing books I have while my fat a$$ was on the couch and read across about intergrated variable split. Its 6 days a week and its hard to explain but each body part has an A, B, and C workout. A is low intensity, B is med. intensity (B is considered the "bread and butter"), and C is hollistic (a giant set). Each week is kinda a different workout. Its tough for me b/c I have always been a limit strength person and moving to exercises that are anaerobic and some aerobic is tough! Anyway here's how It went Yesterday and today:

Yesterday(when I started)
Chest-A
BP 10 reps/10 sets/@155(85%max)

Back-C
Back Ext. 5 reps@45lbs(85%max)
Deadlifts 12 reps@315(70%max)
Pulldowns 40rep(I could only do 20)@90(40%max)

Biceps-A
Ez-Curl 10rep/10 sets@85(85%max)

Abs-B
Russian Twist 5 reps/3 sets/@45lbs(85%max)
Crunchers 5 reps/3 sets/@25(70%max)
Leg lifts 40 reps/3 sets/@BW

Today:

Shoulders-B
DB Press 5 reps/3 sets/@70(85% max)
lat. raise 12 reps/3 sets/@35(70%max)
Military Press 40(I could only do 20) reps/3 sets/@55(40%max)

Tricep-B
Nose Crunchers 12 reps/3 sets/@105(70%max)
Pushdowns 40reps/3 sets/@90-80(40%max)

Legs-C
Squats 5 reps@300(85%max)
Leg Ext. 20reps@140(40%max)

Forearms-A
Wrist Curls 12 reps/10 sets/@135(85%max)

I have a ways to go to get 40 reps in.
