View Full Version : Going Arnold Style

01-23-2007, 04:20 PM
So I am going to try to do my perception of an Arnold workout and see how I do doing a journal will show me if what I am doing is right or wrong. I had some great results doing this then quit for 2-3 months I don't know exactly how long. I started doing like the once a week gym thing during those three months. So rededication in progress :)

I guess I could throw some more background about myself in:

Took the day off yesterday as the leg workout killed me and it takes all my strength not to look like I am hurting when I walk :).

Also discovered and love the recipe that has to do with mixing coffee with your protein shake. That plus a bit of milk is great.

Today is chest day.

Yesterdays meals were (01-23-07):

Morning:
Coffee Shake (31g Protien powder and 1/4 cup of milk)

Midmorning:
2 hard boiled eggs - 60 Cals, 1 Carb, 6 Protein - Total 120 Cal, 2 Carbs, 12 Protien

Lunch:
$10 dollar burger from a nice restaurant (business lunch so I thought better not to ask for nutrition stats :( )

Afternoon Snack:
Powerbar Protien bar (~23g protien)

Dinner:
93% Lean Ground beef hamburger on whole wheat bun X 2
(Bun - 200 Cals 38g Carbs 8g Protien , Cheese - 90 Cals 0 Carbs 5g Protien
1/4 Lbs Beef - 125 Cals 0 Carbs 22g Protien) Total 750 Cals, 76g Carbs, 60g Protein

DAY TOTAL: 151ishg Protein, 200ish Carbs

Today (01-24-07):

Did you mean to have the title say "stylee" or should I fix it?

NOTES:
I felt a bit sluggish today and my left wrist near the little bump where your hand and arm come together hurts. I think I did something to it last week while I was sleeping. I was relatively pooped feeling during this though somehow my lats got a good pump during it, after effects from yesterday maybe. :scratch:

Also adding a tablespoon of creatine to most protein shakes.

TOMORROW:

Is rest!

Make HahnB homemade protien bars.

Today(01-28-07):

Legs
Squats 135(2)7
(Extreme pain trying to do just 135 accentuated mostly in the outter quad. Repeat in head, "No Pain, No Gain. No Pain, No Gain" and Work through the pain after a few initial attempts of doing a squat racking it and walking in little "OUCH" circles. Ask self if this is the right thing to do considering last week was the first week back?)
185(2)6
(Some pain doing 185 in the beginning then it dulls off)
205(2)6
(Some pain on 205 but nothing too extreme most of the pain is at the bottom of the movement now.)

Lunges

45(2)8
(Knowing I suck at lunges I decide to drop the weight drastically. Attempt a few with the bar. God that is really bad. Able to pull off 2 sets of 8 if you counted up the solo attempts :swear: )

Leg Curls(per leg)
70(3)8
(Do the full set on the hammys with ease they don't feel nearly as bad so I increased the weight to try to make up for the quads sucking)

So basically I sucked it up but I am not going to let the initial re-entry pain stop me from doing legs religiously.

Diet:

I have been making and eating HahnB bars religiously. I am on my second batch already and its halfway gone. I don't add nearly as much of the suggested honey which in my case is like 3-4 spoons of maple syrup because it is what I had. I also add 6 scoops of protien powder instead of the suggested. I bet I could do even more using vanilla metrx and it seems to taste great this time to spice it up I also added some walnuts I had laying around. I have some frozen cranberries I was trying to think of a way to incorporate those but I think buying dried would be the better option.

Diet is about the same as the last four days I am trying to way overeat (night time eggs etc.)

Questions:

Pushing through the initial pain is the right thing to do right? I know this pain and its just extreme soarness not a pulled muscle or something.

given any of the music a listen yet?

workouts are looking pretty good

Carter
01-28-2007, 08:38 PM
I have yet to acquire Slayer (Slayer - Reign in Blood.) That is going to be what I try first. I think I want an actual disc rather than Itunes I dunno why exactly but maybe I should go to Borders now and see if they got it. :scratch:

Oh, and thanks for the positive feedback nhlfan I started looking for a borders phone number and forgot to say that! :)

Carter
01-29-2007, 08:54 PM
Since legs are so extreme I am taking a rest day after them today and maybe I will do two workouts morning/evening tomorrow. I think maybe I should overhaul my workout so that arms are between legs and back. I think I chose a rocky time to start working out but if I can get allot of work in during the rocky time I will definitely stick with it during the flat times.

Carter
01-30-2007, 10:59 PM

I have acquired Slayer - Reign in Blood. I listened to it on the way since I am lacking in the MP3 player at the moment (my wife steals the shared one! I hope you read this! :) ) I liked it and I think it will help. I think I am also going to try getting some Rammstien too they are pretty gruff sounding usually.

I will also be making some HahnB bars tonight because I ran out again. I hope I dont get peanutbutter and oat poisoning :(.

Very nice pump tonight starting off with lats was great I was one of the hated trying to flex my lats in the mirror. Seeing that I can pop them out there (which took a while because either A) i could not flex them because they were not there or B) it takes a while to figure out how to flex them. I still don't know how to flex my chest right and my inner chest is definitely weak. I need to do more to hit it I think. I would post so picks for suggestions on what I should do first on the chest but they would be too embarassing at this time.

By the way, is there anything stopping us from putting in some progression pics in the journal? Seems having it all in one location would be nice.

Nice Journal. Subscribed.

Carter
02-19-2007, 08:49 PM
I am relocated now all of my stuff ... is not. Stuff conveniently has my gym journal and gloves with it but I have trudged on without it second day of not being on the road moving. The gym I have joined is not really a bodybuilding gym but I get a month free so I will see what I can get out of it. They have the stuff as long as people aren't curling in the only squat rack :) Which conveniently is the only barbell incline station. It is actually pretty sad accommodations for me but my wife loves their classes *sigh*.

The only commendable eating I did today was a turkey sandwich on wholewheat with like 10 slices of turkey and 6 slices of muenster cheese. Then I also ate 4 eggs. I stupidly packed my protein powder and shaker into the moving trailer instead of with me. Well thats life. 2 more days and I will have it.



WORKOUT CHEST/BACK (02-19-07):

Pull ups BW(2)5 Assisted(5)5

Bench Press 205(5)5

Incline DB Press 120(5)8

Bent Over Rows 135(5)6

Crunches 3 sets of 25

Goals for Next week Chest/Back:

Bench Press - add 2.5's to make it an even 210 lbs

Do deadlifts and rows

Jump back to 130 on DB inclines

Carter
02-20-2007, 09:34 PM
02-20-07 Legs

Squats 245(3)8 265(2)8 On the last one I had to get the last rep 30 seconds later. I need to eat earlier or later because I felt pukey in the beginning but luckily it mostly passed. I decreased my normal water intake because I find making allot of food in your stomach sloshy only increases pukey feeling.

Lunges 50(5)16 Apparently I need to get into lunges slow these make me tired in a cardio way as well as muscle maybe I need to slow it down and increase the weight but the 16 is over both legs so that is only 8 per leg

Leg Curls 130(4)10 I need to increase the weight on this next time but it was pretty good this is both legs together machine

I ate about 6 eggs today a chicken fajita and some whole wheat bread. I need to settle in and get my food right. Luckily I am getting plenty of sleep already.

Goals for next time:

Squats increase the weight to 265 on all sets and maintain deep parallel squat.

Lunges I don't know.

Leg Curls more weight next time.

Moving Furniture and Crap

After doing about 70 x 40 yard farmer walks with 30-100lbs for 2 days I am beat. My left hamstring is killing me and something tells me I should have thought about this and not done legs the day before all of my crap showed up.

I might do arms today or tomorrow but I definitely think I am not letting my legs get enough rest which I feel is going to be bad for them. We shall see though!

Carter
02-24-2007, 05:10 PM
Yesterday I did the last of my farmer walks. Then Today I ran 6 miles because of wife pressure. Thus is life!

Carter
02-28-2007, 10:07 PM
02-28-07 Legs WED

Squats 265(5)8 Completed these with relative ease, the last ones were painful and after congratulating myself on doing it i said aloud, "Never Again" Unfortunately I will do this again soon :)

Lunges 60(5)16 Not as bad today for some reason. Pretty solid the last set was a bear but I got it done.

Leg Curls 150(3)10 180(2)10 This was good I was pretty tired at the end which is good.

Calf Raises 180(5)12 Probably could have done more weight good lift though and my left ankle is sketchy so I will take it easy.

Cardio I did a little one mile jog. I weighed myself and according to my bmi for 6' 224lbs I am obese. Scary! :evillaugh

Goals for next time:

Squats work on form at 265 make sure I am going parallel throughout.

Lunges maybe add some weight next week, hold shoulders back the whole time.

Leg Curls Just burn em out.

Unholy
02-28-2007, 10:20 PM
Nice hard work so far man just a few things though. If you want to do an arnold workout you should check out some of his workouts. I would Add T-Bar rows and Deadlifts to your back day. I dont think pullups will cover it. For shoulders Try Arnold Press as well. Its a great exercise.

Carter
03-01-2007, 08:06 AM
Thanks Unholy.

I do try to do deadlifts on back days but the new gym was pretty jam packed the last back day, and there are really only two Olympic bars in the place the one on the bench press and one in the squat rack (which serves 300 purposes there.) Luckily I am starting to figure out when the place is empty which will make it where I can complete whole workouts.

I do have Arnold's workout encyclopedia and I will admit I am not doing it justice right now but this is a slightly trimmed version of his beginning body builder workout. When I first came here everyone told me the workouts were overzealous and I would be doing more harm than good which is why I trimmed them a bit. For instance yesterday I was supposd to do:

Powertraining
sldl 10 6 4 to failures.
GMornin's 10 6 4 to failures.

And for Chest/Back the workout suggests:
Powertraining
Deadlifts 10 6 4 to failures.

And for Arms/Shoulders:
Clean and press
H Upright Rows
Push Presses
Wrist Curls
Reverse Wrist Curls


The thing is with added rest I am seeing more results I believe than I might have before when I stopped like 3 months ago. Hard decisions!

I think I will slowly integrate more of these if I start to feel good after a workout :)

Carter
03-04-2007, 02:16 PM
WORKOUT CHEST/BACK (03-02-07):


Bench Press 210(5)6

Incline Press 155(5)8

Dead Lifts 295(5)8

Pull ups I did about 30 BW in sets of 3 to 5

I forgot Rows because I was rushed and forgot. Thus is life.

Corrected dead number to reps of 8. Also I ran 7 miles yesterdays with the wife. Ow.


Next Time Goals:

315 Deads (3pps) Probably reps of 6 though so I don't Fatigue and break my back.

Carter
03-06-2007, 06:57 AM
MON (03-05-07) Shoulders / Arms:

Military Presses: 135(3)8 (too tired to continue with those) 115(3)8 did an extra set for good measure

BB Curls: 80(3)8 70(2)8

Seated DB Curls: 60(5)8 (Really focused on form)

BB Overhead Tricep Extensions: 95(5)6

Faster workout today. I was tired.

Carter
03-06-2007, 09:54 PM
03-06-07 Legs TUE

Squats 275(4 or 5)7 275(1)5 I did this somewhat easily. I forgot if I did 4 or 5 at some point so I added the set of five just in case. Next time I do these I might try to record it and post it to make sure I am going deep enough. I asked my wife to tell me when I was parallel and it seemed like I was going low enough during the lifts.

Lunges 70(5)16 Getting Easier I probably need to up the weight the last one was brutal though.

Step ups on a box 95(5)16

Leg Curls 190(5)8 This was good.

Calf Raises 260(5)12 This was a good fit.


Goals for next time:

Squats work on form at 275 make sure I am going parallel throughout possibly video it .

(I did this really fast because I need to sleep I will edit anything thats wrong mananna)

hey carter, NICE lifts man!

Carter
03-07-2007, 09:03 PM
Stump - Thanks I would like to say it is muscle memory or something but I do not think I have ever done weight this heavy in most cases. Maybe higher 1 rep maxes but I know I have never done 275 Squats especially not 5 sets of 7 reps. I think I am an easy gaining (maybe only strength) leg gainer and I am enjoying these perhaps newbie gains in my leg strength. :) I always found a way out of training my legs but coming here has really motivated me to tear 'em down.

Ha, So I guess I am not marking my PR's which I just figured out mean personal records!

Thanks though reading journals like yalls are making me question my development quicker and not be satisfied where I am at seeing all the great amounts of iron being pushed and gained :)

Thanks again.

Carter
03-12-2007, 09:26 PM
WORKOUT CHEST/BACK (03-12-07):


Bench Press 210(6)5 I might be able to do more but probably not be able to finish the sets, the last set was shockingly easier than usual though. But I took a longer break on the last one probably 3.5 to 4 minutes because of a call.

DB Incline Press 130(5)8 After this I tried to do the 90's for a set on flat and my chest said, "NEGATIVE!"

Dead Lifts 315(5)5 365(1)3 I was impressed that after the sets of 315 I was able to get the 365 up 3 times. On the last I locked it out looked at myself in the mirror in all my glory and my grip started to falter so the glory was very very short.

Pull ups I did about 33 BW in sets of 2 to 3 I did this at the very end so I was basically running on fumes.

Bent over BB Rows 145(5)8


Next Time Goals:

215 on bench next time just to see where I am in regard to it. Gonna need a spotter!

ARMS/SHOULDERS (03-14-07):

So I get in the truck I am heading down the road I got all my accouterments and I am thinking about the mad millies I am going to pull off. Suddenly I have the need to accelerate going down the Mopac expressway. So I give it some gas and it shifts hard, that didn't sound great I murmur to myself. RMMM RMMM the gas pedal is no longer connected to my axle ****! on the freeway. So I throw on my emergency flashers throw it in neutral even though drive is now neutral and ponder what I have screwed up and how far I am going to get before my truck settles in an immobile heap. I hit the exit I am actually going for because it was not that far ahead I cruise down a nice incline to see what I didnt want to see 3 cars yielding at the bottom with a slight uphill grade in front of them. **** **** I shout. My truck strolls up behind the third car not even one was able to get out on the road. Here I am stranded with my truck on the freeway. So I start calling people my wife is in a meeting or something and doesn't answer meanwhile I am having to wave people around me on the left because I left the room for such a thing to happen. Some people don't grasp the concept and pull up right behind my stranded truck. So I draft a primitive sign because I am tired of making a circle with my arm (the sign says "GO AROUND OR TOW?") I call my dad and ask him to google some tow truck numbers for me he calls back and a guy is coming but he is in the traffic on the opposite side of mopac so I sit there holding the sign out of my window for like 10 minutes watching some people still pull up all the way to my emergency flashing tailgate, "Morons!" "Go around!" I say repetitively as though it will help. A group of girls in a tahoe think this is great they snap some pictures for their myspace pages I assume. Whatever I think. My truck does look ridiculous right now because I had to move allot of boxes so it currently has a mismatched top not very attractive on a 97 GMC 1500 but wtf. Finally a kind guy with apparently a fairly criminal past pulls up and tows me to a parking lot with my 1 inch wide tie down we break it twice on the way to the parking lot god bless that guy though he was great even though he kept telling me he was going to have to run if some cops pulled up. Finally the tow truck comes this is after 2 hours ( a very nice tow guy) anyway to say the least I didnt get arms done and now I am truckless so I have to decide should I ride the bus to the gym, use the crap apt. gym or focus on work which would be really good for a week or so.

I have to run a 10k this weekend so I didnt want to kill my legs too bad.

So I have a choice now pay 79 bucks a month to go to the prissy gym with my wife or pay like 29 to go to a cheap gym, because unfortunately my one month of free is up. Stupid money to workout!

Squats 295(5)6 These were not that bad. 3pps very soon.

Leg Curls 115(5)7

Leg Extensions115(5)7

Calf Raises 180(5)7

I also did chest like 2 days ago but I cant remember anything about it. I have been sporadic again on my workouts lately. Luckily I have a Volvo now and so i can get places not only that but in style.

I actually havn't quit working out (completely) but I did stop posting etc. Truth be told I had to give it up cold turkey so I wouldnt just surf the boards all day. I am getting a membership to the local Y I have been trying it out right now. The 295 squats was a PR I also did a few more of those in DL. So close to 3pps on squats can't wait.

Still working out! But I have fallen behind on journaling which I think is making me not be as motivated by seeing other peoples weights and telling myself I have to do more so I am going to start journaling again to make sure I read other peoples journals and keep hungry....


I am still doing about the same weights my bench may have suffered lately because I am finding 205 to still be challenging and I planned on moving up. My goals have changed slightly I am doing allot of HIIT because I don't fit in medium shirts atm and its not because my muscles are huge *looks down at stomach*
So now I am doing allot to try to get fit and big.

I did move up to 3pps on Squats which is great.

Other than that no new news except I need to start posting here more :)
