diet sucked. too many shakes. it was because of school and laziness. water was decent. don't know how many litres. only 4 hours of sleep the night before. spring break is starting, so i can eat like a mofo again. late night last night. damn late nights out :)
by the way, got my body fat checked yesterday. it's at 8.5 %. (give or take 2%.. but i think it's pretty accurate) i'm getting my pics developed some time this week. i've gotten a lot bigger i can see in the mirror. but i haven't put on much weight. still at 5'8".5 and 145.

Sorry to interrupt on your journal, but... Whistler rules! Where do you live? There is a sweet gym about 5-10 miles from Whistler. When I was up there last summer I would bike to the gym and then workout. I don't remember the name, but ask around...it's a great place with a swimming pool, stationary bicycles, weightlifting (free weight & machine), etc....Have fun.

Mystic Eric
04-13-2001, 12:21 AM

I do like 200 on calf raises, haha...you are going down.

Mystic Eric
04-13-2001, 02:16 AM
heath j, you do 200 pounds on standing one legged calf raises? so you hold a 200 pound DB and do one leg calf raises???

04-13-2001, 08:33 AM
Thanx term,
I went to a store and bought "glycocarb" by interactive nut.
It was 33 bucks for 10lb. so pretty good price i guess

05-03-2001, 01:48 PM
finally back after a 6 day break from working out. :cool: i wasn't gaining weight, and the last work out i did, i actually decreased in weights.. so i took 6 days off. i'm back with a new program. i have been training like HIT style for the past few months and i need a change. i'm also eating like 3200 cals (roughly) a day and i will increase that by 200 a week. here's what i did last night:

incline DB press: 45's/9 50's/9 50's/8 50's/8
Flat DB press: 50's/8 50's/8 50's/7 45's/8
Pec deck flye (never thought i'd ever do these in my life)
95/8 85/8
BB curl - 60/8 55/8 55/7
Alt DB curls - 25/9 25/8 25/8
Hammer Curls - 25's/8 25's/8

rest periods were at about 90 seconds. i usually rested like 3 minutes per set when i was doing HIT style training. my body is totally not used to higher volume as i decresed in weights drastically. i'll train 3 - 4 a week. with the same amount of volume.

Mystic Eric
05-03-2001, 02:00 PM
here's my new program:

day 1: chest/bi's

flat DB press: 4 x 8-10
Flat Bench Flyes: 2 x 8-10
EZ bar curl: 3 x 8
Incline DB curls: 3 x 8
Hammer curls: 2 x 8

day 2: legs/shoulders
squats: 4 x 8-10
leg press: 3 x 8-10
stiff leg deads: 4 x 8-10
Overhead DB press: 3 x 8-10

ok, do you guys have any suggestions? the only thing that i can see wrong is day 3 'cause it just seems waaay to long. any help? :)

05-03-2001, 02:10 PM
Increasing your volume and decreasing your rest periods will most likely only hinder you.

my triceps were really weak today. i haven't trained them in like 2 weeks, and it could have also been from chest (the tricep fatigue)

was really impressed with handling the 70's.

so far, meals are 1 behind. i'll stay up a bit later, and sleep in to have that meal.

k, i just got a 6 week program set up by maki. what a guy :) anyways, i'm gonna take a full week off before i start it. so since the last time i worked out was thursday, i won't hit the gym until thursday, june 21. so for the rest of the week, i'm gonna eat well over 4000 cals and at least 5 meals. i am ready to make some freaky ass gains this summer.

damn. that was a lot of cals. well i dunno if it's good or not 'cause i should have each day around the same... but since i did work for 4 hours and did go out at night, i guess i had to make up for the lost cals. but i dunno if ranging from 4700-5600 in a few days is too good. who cares though i'm bulking. and i'm a happy mofo. my mom made a load of sirloin beef patties 'cause i asked her to. and i'll be eating those for the next 2-3 days. tomorrow i have to work at the department store.. so i'll have to work my meals around that. and i'm gonna add some more veggies in my diet. probably steam up so brocoli every morning and add those to two meals a day.

wtf, 01/06/28...what freaking country are you from.

The correct, yes, correct way to write the date is month/day/year

So the correct way to do it would be 06/28/01...f00! :D

Work on your bench...it's lacking boy! tuttut ;) How much do you weigh now?

Mystic Eric
07-06-2001, 02:03 AM

damnit, my diet has been screwed up for the past 3 days. i've probably only ate like 1500 cals each day at like 3 meals a day :(

lost about 2 pounds. can't do that ever again. i took a few days off 'cause the way maki structured my program, my legs weren't exactly recovered.

anyways, today i got in 5 meals. better than 3 small ones. tomorrow i will get 6 or 7 in for sure.

today's work out:

squats: ss 175/10 185/10 190/9
leg extensions: 100/10 100/10 107.5/10

i didn't do calf work 'cause i was too lazy and tired. hopefully, i can get my diet back on track, and make gains like was making before.

Mystic Eric

ok, my right wrist is fooked. i almost had to quit in the middle of my work out. but i used my wrist straps for my right hand while benching. it helped a lot. it will be another 4 days before my next upper body work out so i shall get plenty of rest for it. meals i will get in about 6 or 7. i am gaining weight quite well.

maki, i'm gonna email you, 'cause we have to make a few slight ajustments to the program. thanks bro.:)

Mystic Eric
07-12-2001, 12:57 AM

i have decided that i'm an assclown. i get my diet perfect for about 5 days, then i go 2 with like 2000 cals a day. not good for bulking tuttut

ez bar curls: 55/10 60/8

Mystic Eric

I recommend that you do the curls first, not the hammers. You should also use the straight bar as it places your biceps in the fully supinated position. I also think doing dips and close grip plus your normal chest work is excessive work for the chest. Why not switch to some isolation tricep exercises for arm day? Try skull crushers and pushdowns. Sorry if I am being intrusive, just my thoughts.

Maki Riddington
07-22-2001, 05:19 PM

not being intrusive at all :) maki had me doing the straight bars instead of the ez bar... but i had wrist problems so i had to change to the ez bar.

two really good sessions:

01/07/25: back

deads: 225/6 235/6 (not to failure)
chins: 40/7 45/5
seated rows: 120/8

01/07/26: chest

incline BB bench 145/8 145/8
flat bench flyes: 40/9 45/7
flat BB bench: 135/9 140/8 i didn't really go to failure on either of those 'cause i wasn't sure of what weight i could handle, and i didn't want to do extra sets

Mystic Eric
08-01-2001, 07:07 PM
i didn't go to the gym all weekend 'cause i was going out the whole weekend and my cals were done. i think i'm gonna be more of a hermit and go out less and focus on working out 'cause most high school friends don't last anyways after high school and i would rather get big than to hang out with big groups of people doing nothing productive.


squats (not to failure): 195/8 200/7 200/7
leg press: 5 wheels/9
seated calf raise (1,4,0 tempo): 95/20 95/20

1 more week of maki's previous 6 week program for me. then i'm gonna take a week off 'cause i've been exhausted and getting home late and going to bed late. tonight is arms. food was on yesterday and will be on today again. will update later tonight.


arms today:

hammer curl: 35/9 35/8
ez bar curl: 70/8 70/7
dips: 45/8 50/7
close grip bench: 135/9 145/8

i'm very tired still. and my legs have been really sore since the last work out which is a huge shock to me as i haven't been sore at the legs for a long time. it feels good though

Mystic Eric
08-04-2001, 01:34 AM

first session:

incline BB press: 150/8 155/7
flat bench flyes: 40/8 45/8
flat BB press: 150/8 150/8

late session:

deadlifts (not to failure): 235/6 245/5
close grip chins: 50/4 50/4
seated rows: 120/9 120/8

two good session. gaining in all aspects. almost beating latman. and me and maki have a "date" on the 11th which is next week. should be a gay ol' time. ;)

Mystic Eric
08-13-2001, 09:28 PM
well. i took a week off of my program and diet after that 6 week program. gained like 10 pounds or so. here is the new program:

Legs on Monday


Leg ex:



Back, Biceps and Shoulders on Wednesday

Chin Ups


Cable Row



Barbell Curl


Preacher curls



Dumbell Press


Lateral raises



Bench Press


Incline Dumbell Press





Skull Crushers


Rope Push Downs


Thats it for the first 2 weeks
The next 2 weeks double up on the volume for all sets.
The first 2 weeks you must take every set past failure.
In other words you will reach failure before you have completed the reps and then continue to force the rest out till you complete the set.
Don't take rest periods longer than 10 seconds when you have reached failure. This means the weight you select will enable you to complete half of the reps given the rest will be forced.

so there's the new for weeks. i will sit down tonight and write up a new diet. i'll go for about 5300 a day and will be bulking t'ill 165 and see if i need to cut or not. hopefully i'll reach this weight at the end of september or mid september at the earliest.

Mystic Eric
08-14-2001, 12:33 AM
today's work out was the hardest one i've ever had in my life.

funniest thing happened. this faggot named gary, he's about 3 years older than me and he still lives at home. he thinks he really cool and he bs's about everything. so anyways, i was squatting, and my buds were deadlifting, he comes by and says, "how come everytime i see you guys you are doing legs? i play football and i don't even do legs that much" you see, he's got more size than me, but he's not all that much stronger. i felt like telling him how big of a dumb ass he is.

so the work out:

squats: 245/6
breathing squats: 11 reps with 185 to failure. then i repped out 5 more before i gave out. i was supposed to do 20 all together :(
leg extensions: 170 and i repped out 5, then 3, then 2. same for second set
calf raises: 315 for 7, then 3, then 3, then 2. same for 2nd set

those breathing squats were seriously the hardest thing i've ever done in my life.

Mystic Eric
08-15-2001, 11:53 PM

dunno.. motivation was crap today until i got in the gym and cypris hill came on! lol

everything is rest pause:

wide grip chins: 1 set: 25 plate 6,2,2
seated cable rows: 1 set: 130: 7,2,2
deadlifts: 1 set: 255: 6,2,1
ez bar curls: 1 set: 75: 7,2,1
1 arm preacher curls: 1 set each: 25: Right: 7,2,1. Left: 5,2,2,1
Overhead DB press: 1 set: 60's: 6,2,2
lateral raise: 1 set: 25: 6,2,2

gonna have to talk to that booker t wannabe, maki, about the deadlifts in the program. i can't do squats on monday and then deads on wednesday 'cause my legs haven't recovered yet.

Mystic Eric
08-18-2001, 11:11 PM

cals have been down for 3 consecutive days. not good at all. i have been getting lots of shifts at work, so i'm gonna have to plan my meals better before hand.

today's training after work:

bench press: 175: 6,2,1,1 (that was rest/pause. so 6 reps before resting 10 seconds and so on)
incline DB press: 65/7 (i stopped there 'cause it was too light) and then 70's for 6, then 2 more after 10 seconds
and 100 pushups. these were really gay. it took me like 12 sets to do them, and i could only rest like 10 secs in between. gonna have to ask maki the reason for pushups :confused:
and i was so fried that i didn't do my skull crushers, only rope pressdowns.

gonna have to work again tomorrow. will try to set up meals so i will eat enough. training legs on monday or tuesday. depending on how i feel.

Mystic Eric
08-20-2001, 10:31 PM

leg day today:

squats: 255/5 and then a set of 20 rep breathing squats with 175. if you haven't done those before, then you can't be considered a warrior
leg extensions: 170: for 6 reps, then rest, then 2 reps, then rest, then 2 again
170 for 6 reps, then rest, then 3 reps, then rest, then 1 rep.

too fried to do calvies. training legs is sick.

supinated wide grip chins: 25: 7, 2,1
seated cable row: 130: 7,2,1
deadlifts: 275: 6,1,1 (was impressed with myself on those)

1 arm preacher curls: 30: 7,2,1 (right arm) 6,2,2, (left arm)
overhead DB press: 60: 5,2 (grip gave out. too hard to get weights back up)
lateral raise: 25: 6,2,2

only had 4 meals 'cause i woke up at 2. but two of my meals were mcdick's, and wendys. so cals were too low but not nearly enough
