Hey,

Well i got new home equipment, and some workout partners who i will be working out with. So i thought i would start fresh. I have been working out on and off for about a year. But now i really really want to pack on some mass. I bought some new equipment cause my old gym did not have a squat rack, a proper bench or a place to do deadlifts.

Start off with some goals:

-I hope that this journal will get to its 7th page so it says "last Page"
- Get my BW to 176-187lb @5'10". With BF% <10.
-_Bench: 200x1_Squat:220x1_Deadlift:308
-Look better than the skinny kid i am now.

I hope that you guys will be able to support me and offer your advice. I hope your motivation will help me to achieve my goals.

Heres a pic of what ive got:

First time going semi heavy on deadlifts, its a lot harder with more weight. And I finally used a proper bench and did more than I thought I could of. With flys I am taking it easy cause of my RC.

Nice start to a journal Matt, You know I will be here helping you make it to 7 pages since you have always been there to give me motivation..

So how are your Rcs feeling? Mine are actually feeling a bit better since I have been doing a lot of direct work on them 3x a week at least, and now I am always warming them up before any pressing..

Awesome Matt...you can experiment with splits doing this home thing, try the one body part per day - best of luck!!

Stack: Thanks man, i hope so.

BigMase: thanks dude. yeah my RC's are better than they were a couple of weeks ago but they are still as not as good as they were. i had to give them a big warm up and was surprised i didnt have to much pain in the heavy sets.

CoCoa: Thanks man, i was thinking of mabe trying a upper/lower split. hitting each Bodypart twice a week. any thoughts on what a program like that would look like?

mrelwooddowd: Hey man, thanks. Yeah ive gotta be careful with them. i dont want a perminent injury.

To be honest about it I would still go to the gym here and there for some things you may not have at home but overall I'd try going all out with chest this time and back the next time and so on. Its all on you now Matt, go all out and see how you feel with everything...this is gonna be great, no matter what you do.

workout was totally fuked. Some guys who I am friends with wanted to some workout with me and they were the type of guys who only want to bench and curl. And they were reving me up saying I cant bench as much as them. They are 1 and 2 years older than me and that is why I did the 132x1. that equalled my bench PR. 1 of them couldnít do it and the other only went down until the bar was like 2Ē off his chest.

They want to some more often. But next time ill make sure that I do my workout before they come so they wont fuk it up again.

Nice benching/millies. Don't worry about those friends of yours. They won't get far training like that.
BTW your setup looks good. How much did it set you back in the end?

That workout is somewhat reminicent of what i did 3 times a week when i was in Yr 11. And to think, i've been browsing WBB since probably 2002, yet i was too stubborn to change my ways and start training properly until early 04.

Oh adn I noticed on your Arm days when you do shoulders that you do no rear delt movement.. You should really incoroprate some type of rear delt move in there or you will be paying the price like me bro..

Short leg workout, still trying to get form down on squats, any tips???? Ive gotta get eating though so that I can see some major gains in size. Think I might switch up routines aswell, cause ive been on this one for a while. Mabe an upper/lower split hitting each muscle 2x week.

Coke
11-18-2005, 10:24 PM
The only tip I can give pertaining to the squats is sort of a strange one, but I had a friend who was really good at squats and he'd say that you should see your butt in the mirror when you drop it down far enoughÖI never realized how correct he was till later. Good deal on switching the split up sometimes though legs seem to need their own day.

Nice job here Matt.

Bob
11-18-2005, 11:14 PM
Matt great journal and progress on PRs...
On your Deadlift.. you seem to be cranking your neck back too much... and I am not sure from the view, but I think you might be able to benefit from a wider stance..

Back on your squats... when I was a youngster learning how to squat.. the thing that help me was a 4x4 support in the middle of my garage... I had read in an old muscle mag that you shouldn't extend the knee in front of the toe... so I stood in front of that 4x4, with my toe touching, and then squating... the 4x4 would then stop my knee from going past... this really increase the weight I could squat in a short time...

On your leg routine.. I would recommend 3 changes.. and I will get a lot of disagreement from others here.. but oh well...

If you want mass and balance in your legs.. do this:
>> More sets of Squats - 2 sets of warm-ups, 2 heavy sets, and one set of a weight you can do for about 20-30 reps.. your chest will expand greatly when it's grasping for breath..
>> On the Leg Extenstion and Leg Curls.. do the Curls first, but this is usually where we have an inbalance... and both of them single leg at a time.. bit the Leg Ext & Leg Curl allow your stronger leg to pull more weight.. because of the balance of the machine.. don't let it do that.. do single leg at a time..
>> Jump rope after doing your calf raises... especially supersets of single leg jumps..

TTT
11-18-2005, 11:44 PM
Workouts are looking solid Matt. Deadlift form looked OK to me... at least your back is straight. If you want to involve your legs more, try squatting down lower on each rep, and pull 'backwards' more.

Stackattack
11-19-2005, 12:30 AM
I'd say your form looks decent Matt, your torso looks nice and ridged. One thing you might want to try that has helped me is having the bar right up against your shins when initiating the pull (you'll want to wear long pants for this) This helps you drop your ass down lower and get your shoulders back allowing you to use more leg drive. Although i use a far narrower stance than you appear to be using and my legs are much shorter.

Canadian Crippler
11-19-2005, 12:42 AM
I think you should drop the leg extentions and leg curls. If you are hitting lower body once a week, make sure you are doing heavy compound movements. Throw in some lunges and SLDL instead.

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 12:54 AM
I think you should drop the leg extentions and leg curls. If you are hitting lower body once a week, make sure you are doing heavy compound movements. Throw in some lunges and SLDL instead.
You bastard... I was just gonna say the thing about leg curls and extensions.. The only I use extensions for is to warm up my quads and knees before actually squating..

On your form I agree with stack, bring the bar closer to your body to allow for maximal advantage, and try and use more leg drive to maximize the poundage..

Matt04
11-19-2005, 04:55 PM
bearwolfden: hey, thanks and welcome. Yeah i have my neck so far back looking up to the ceiling because i want to keep my back straight and i herd that is the best method of keeping it that way.

With squats, that sounds like a good idea. but everytime i squat i always make sure that my knees dont go too far over because i dont have the best knees from injuries i have had due to sport.

And for my squats, i forgot to mention that i did 2 warm up sets. 45lbx12 2 sets. and ive never done a drop set with squats before cause im probably scared of dieing from it lol.

and the single leg exercises makes alot of sense, so does the jumping rope after calves. i mite give it a try next time. Thanks


TTT: thanks man, yeah i will try to squat down more next DL day.

Stack: thanks man, ill try having it closer to me. and how narrow is your stance? shoulder width?

CC: yeah, i dont think leg extensions really hit my quads hard enough. and i have to learn how to do SLDL's.

BigMase: thanks, yeah i will try and use more leg drive next time. cause i feel all my back is doing all the work.

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 04:57 PM
I wouldnt worry too much though matt, I have seen a lot of people use different styles I mean I dont know if you have ever seen Ronnie colemans DLs but he uses almost no leg drive and he puts up 800 for a double..

Matt04
11-19-2005, 05:00 PM
800x2 hoooooolyyyyyy ****. thats insane.

but if i did implement more leg drive, do you think that i could use alot more weight?

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 05:05 PM
Oh yeah a good 20-30lbs maybe.. I know once I got my form down I went from 245x5 to 345x2 in 6 weeks. My form to start out with was horrible so you may not see gains like those but with a few tweaks so you feel more comfortable you should see good gains..

Its all about how you feel on the lift and your comfort level, Mine I can put up much heavier weight with leg drive. But some like Ronnie use almost no leg drive..

Matt04
11-19-2005, 05:10 PM
yeah, well i should be deadlifting tomorrow so ill experiment with different stances and that. ill try and get a couple of more videos aswell.

how wide should my stance be for a conventional deadlift?

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 05:13 PM
I would say no more than shoulder width for conventional, any further and you start getting into Sumo territory. I use a bit closer than shoulder width since it allows to go much heavier.. But thtas just me

Matt04
11-19-2005, 05:21 PM
sounds good, ill try different ones out.

just one more Question on DL, should i have my grip outside my knees. and outside shoulder width?

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 05:26 PM
Well it depends do you have long arms or short arms?

Long arms people normally have a close grip since there would be less length to travel, with the weight since it will be hanging lower..

I have shorter arms so I do actually a bit outside shoulder width, I put my thumbs at the start of the knurls to make sure im even on both sides adn than I lift..

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 05:27 PM
Too add to that, Another reason I go wider on grip is that it Allows ME to relly get low with my legs.

Matt04
11-19-2005, 05:30 PM
well i think i have median arm length. so ill give both of them a go. Thanks heaps for all this help.

lilmase1153
11-19-2005, 05:33 PM
Not a prob Mate... Good luck and just keep trying its all about trial and error.


Make sure you dont go heavy while playing with form, It would be awful to get hurt while playing with form..

Stackattack
11-19-2005, 09:12 PM
I just measured and my heels are about 7 inches apart. Like Mase said, it's probably best for you to experiment with a few different stances. I'll just add. your form in the vid is by no means bad, and you don't look to be at any risk of injury with that form, but some form changes(eg ass lower) would result in greater mechanical advantage and therefore heavier poundages.

Canadian Crippler
11-19-2005, 11:45 PM
There are TONS of people who deadlift 800+ and do not get there ass any lower than he does.

Find what lets you pull the most weight safely.

Tons? Ok wise guy let me see a list of 20 people than.. And I mean people whom are still alive and who dont weight 400lbs..
2x BW is not impressive at all so being a super heavy only pulling 800 is not impressive and not a big deal since A ton of people here on WBB pull 2x BW...

Patz
11-20-2005, 10:11 PM
I watched the vid..

I think the form is ok. It looks like you're straining hard to keep your head up, and as inportant as it is to form, you gotta make sure everything else is moving naturally as a result of the head's position. I think once you get to doing them week in and week out, you'll slide right into the comfrot zone.

Nice matt. Your deadlift form looks a lot smoother now. The only thing is that you don't appear to be locking it out at the top of the movement (mostly in the later reps). Other than that it looks perfect to me. Nice benching too.

Tons? Ok wise guy let me see a list of 20 people than.. And I mean people whom are still alive and who dont weight 400lbs..
2x BW is not impressive at all so being a super heavy only pulling 800 is not impressive and not a big deal since A ton of people here on WBB pull 2x BW...Benedikt Magnusson (I think that's his name).

Oh sorry, is a high 900 deadlift at the age of 22 just not impressive? ;)

CoCoa: haha sorry dude, you gotta get ya self to the beach. Yeah i hope the to start the new program soon.

I have 1 question though, i cant do pull ups and chin ups properly cause the only way i can do them is if i put the pegs at the top and put the bar across the top. But when i do a pull up i cant go all the way down to full extension. is this ok if i dont go all the way down or is it pointless??

Coke
12-11-2005, 12:07 PM
I wouldn't say it is pointless not to go all the way down while doing the pullups but you do need to get a fuller range in the movement, whatever that may be. Those are a couple of awesome keepsake pics Matt...you ought to know the deal here in the US, it happens to be deep winter with plenty of snow and ice so no beach for me right now.

Stackattack
12-13-2005, 09:39 PM
Yeah i looked through the yearbook for you a while back too. The only problem was that there seems to be about 100 Matt's in each grade.

My knees crack and pop on every single rep of squats. When i first started doing them they hurt too. But my knees were already jacked from years of skateboarding.
For me it was just a matter of finding my groove with the movement. They very rarely hurt any more. But it still would be best for you to get it checked out. Your squats are looking good though.

When i was your weight i was eating about the same amount as you. I just slowly increased it by 100-200 cals whenever weight gain halted. I think this method is better than just adding 500 cals in one hit as far as limiting fat gain goes.

CC: lol.


well saw the physio and not that great news. He said something about my ligaments and how they are not in the best shape from all the skateboarding,soccer,rugby,cricket and all the other sports ive been playing over the years. He said squating was not helping them heal. He told me to give squats break for atleast 3 months. Also another Medial condition prevents me from heavy lower body exercise. I cannot do any squatin exercises because it will affect the area.

will i still be able to grow and Bulk without Squats, Lunges and DL or any other squatting exercise?????????????Man this sucks.

Take the break, and see how it goes...
How old are you? When I was younger, and I was growing really fast (don't know whether you're still growing or not), my knees were totally ****ed for awhile. I think the bones were growing faster than the ligaments and tendons, or something like that. Had the same problem with my heels. Anyway, good luck with it.

Aiight Guys and Gals, im gunna seriously try and attempt to gain for weight.

i want to try and get atleast 2700-3000+ a day.

i find it hard to down alot of this food, so at night im really gunna try and throw down alot of milk.


Some Weight goals id love to achieve:

Short term: 143lb then to 154lb

Long Term: 176lb @10%

that will probably change when or if i get bigger.


If you guys could spare me motivation with my eating i would really appreciate it, cause that is the only part which is letting me down.

Stackattack
12-15-2005, 12:52 AM
Whenever i feel too full or lazy to eat i always have in the back of my mind that if i don't eat enough when i'm ment to then i'm wasting my time and will never achieve my goals. I don't want to be stuck looking the way i do now forever and i have an image in my mind of where i want to be.
The news about your knees sucks ass. But all is not lost. I went from 120 to maybe 140(i forget what weight exactly) without ever training legs. Infact, all i really trained was chest with occasional pullups and curls. But then again, that is how i got into my tiny leg predicament in the first place. :cry:

Matt04
12-15-2005, 02:23 AM
Do you think i can get away with doing leg extensions and Leg Curls? Will they still make me grow?

i know that they are not as effective as squats and SLDL but atleast i would be working them.

And i will be working the WHOLE upper body,im glad i never did the chest and bicep curl jockey training.

Im thinking of Scrapping the Chin ups on Upper #2 and putting pull ups again cause i really need back growth, what do you think?

matt i wouldn't scrap sldl's if that's what your thinking but if you want to add extensions and curls you can do it, like for example on my lower body session one day i'll add extensions and leg curls and the next i'll do sldl's, lunges, mix it up but that's just me, chins/pullups are great either one work the back.

bad news, ive been taken by a virus which has left me with next to no appetite and feeling very lathargic with no energy.

the past couple of days ive been eating very little, around 2000cals at the most.

been drinking alot of water, and hopefully it passes soon.

i hope the last couple of weeks eating right wernt for nothing, i hope i didnt loose too much weight.

CoCoa: Thanks alot man, i really apreciate the consistant support!

Harv:Thanks alot man, yeah new yrs i sorta stuffed up the diet.

New years Eve:

well, i had alot of fun. It started of me and some friends going to a mates house and drinking in his kiddy pool and playing tennis. Then some more friends came over and we worked out were going to a party at this place which is like 40 mins away. So we all meet at this guys house and we had a 14 car convoy all the way there. Then got there and there was heaps of hot chicks there and this guys house was the perfect party house.

All in all it was a great night, i got myself a midnight hook up with a nice looking girly and had a great time. But i didnt eat much and my diet hasnt been very good for the past 2 days. i also think i might have to bump my cals up a but, mabe to 3200cals

***Upper #2 Quick***


-DB press (finally got the rest of the weight):

55x6 (+1R)
55x8 (+3R)
55x5

Havenít done these in ages, first set it was weird to get them up because the adjustable DBís poke into my legs if I put them upright. So I put them diagonally and use momentum to get them up.

-Pull Ups:

BWx8
BWx6
BWx5

-Arnies:

33x10 (+ 5.5W)
38.5x10 (+ 11W)

-Curls:

66x8
66x6


.::Comments::.

Session was a quick one but a decent one. Now that new years and Christmas is over I can finally get everything in order and get into some serious and consistent bulking. I hope that 3000 cals is enough to boost weight gain because I think I have been gaining weight but sometimes I wander over to the scales in the day and im either less that the previous time I weight myself in the morning like half a week before.

Seeing the continuous red in here is a plus, you should be well pleased with jumping up 5 more lbs with the db press.
