That way you/we can track progress better :)

Also, post your goals - more muscle, fat loss etc

Try increasing your rep range to 6-8. I used to do a lot of lower rep, but now after switching I thining higher rep is better. It's all about the pump

Please explain what type of "curls"(db, reverse, bb, hammer, concentration?) you're doing, as well as "rows"(bb, db, seated, bent over, upright, t-bar?).

Also what is the routine you have look like?

Phelon
01-14-2006, 11:28 PM
Curls are free curls, not preacher. Just on a curl bar. And rows, are standing up, bringing the bar to my kneck. Dont know real names..

My routine is basically as follows:

Mon,wed,friday is upper body, tues,thurs are leg(running)

The 17th of this month went as followed (yesterday)

First we went in the basketball court, and ran 6 50's 3/4-full speed, then went into the weight room (i went light because of a hamstring tightening). And i did 1x10 with 155, 1x8 with 185, 1x6 with 205 (parallel). And then we did the whole routine over, starting from running, did this for about 3-4 times, all in all i did this all together

4x10 with 155
4x8 with 185
4x6 with 205
and ran 24 50's Something in that region. It was a pretty good leg workout.


Today
I did a warmup with 135
3x5 with 225
2x4 with 245
1x6 with 185
3x10 wide grip with 155. I jumped around on weight because i was going to max out, but changed my mind.

Then i did 3x15 shrugs with 135
then did 3x15 curls with curlbar +50lbs
That's all i had time for today.

I"m guessing you did squats today? You have good numbers, keep it up. The row you described is an upright bb row.

Phelon
01-18-2006, 07:04 PM
No sir, today was a chest day, yesterday was the squat day. Sorry about that. And Im confused about all of them names "bb" and all that. And thanks people :)

Where are the squats? Deadlifts?

Hey, I saw the pictures by the way too. Looking good, you've got some mass on you. Nice arms. I think you need to consider doing a pretty serious cut though, and taking off some of the body fat. It'll help everything out, and I think it'll reveal a pretty strong base.


Are you working out for anything such as football?

smalls
05-17-2006, 07:05 PM
Is there a reason you dont do back movements?

Phelon
05-17-2006, 09:39 PM
I havent updated this in a while. I do, do squats, and back movements such as rows (diff types) and lats. And after about another month of bulking, i am going to do a small cut.

smalls
05-17-2006, 11:00 PM
It just looks like about 1 back excercise every few bench workouts. Seems like a unbalanced split.

Phelon
05-17-2006, 11:09 PM
It does seem that wya doesnt it. I've got more now. These post are old. Im puttin in lats, and rows in every upper day. :)

JustinF

Pretty good stats ya got there. Looks like you would benefit from a more balanced split, as smalls pointed out.

Phelon
05-24-2006, 09:49 PM
I am working on that. I am right now, recovering from a shoulder problem. And then i will hit this journal back up :)
