    TonyD's first go around with HCT-12

    Hey everyone, i'm new to the board and also new to HCT-12. It looks interesting so I thought i'd give it a go.

    I'm 180 lbs, cut down from 210. I've been dieting for a quite a while and i'm ready to start eating and growing again and this program looks like fun. heh.

    I hope this log will help keep me on track and any comments or suggestions would be welcome.

    I decided to do the 4 day split. I started friday and had my second day today. So my split is M W F S.

    Fridays workout felt good. It's weird to go in the gym and not go through a bunch of sets per body part but i'm sure i'll adjust and i'm looking forward to seein how my body responds to the new program.

    Fridays work out numbers:

    Overhand pulldown (in lbs):
    60x6 80x6 100x6 120x6 140x6 160x6 180x6 +2 +2 +2

    One arm DB rows:
    20x6 40x6 60x6 80x6 100x6 +2 +2 +2

    Incline DB Press:
    30x6 50x6 70x6 90x6 (couldn't get 90lb DB's up for rest so I went down to 75) 75x2 +2 +2

    Standing DB press:
    25x6 35x6 45x6 55x6 +2 +2 +2

    Cable pushdown (ez bar):
    60x6 90x6 120x6 150x6 +2 +2 +2

    Saturday was a little rough, my back was super tight after the deadlifts and so that made things a little tough after them.

    Saturdays workout numbers:

    Deadlift:
    135x6 185x6 235x6 285x6 315x6 +2 +2 +2

    Leg Press:
    45esx6 90esx6 135esx6 180esx6 225esx6 270esx6 +2 +2 +2

    calf raise on a sled:
    60x6 80x6 140x6 180x6 220x6 260x6 +2 +2 +2

    I did 2 Bicep exercises instead of one

    BB curl:
    20x6 40x6 60x6 80x6 100x6 +2 +2 +2

    Spider curl:
    20x6 40x6 60x6 +2 +2 +2

    I was pretty exhausted after this workout. Deadlifts drain me. I could have done more weight with the leg press but my lower back was so tight it was a challenge just to get through what I did.

    I think I need to wear my belt on that last set of deads and see if that helps at all.

    Well, I look forward to any criticism or suggestions.

    Thanks guys

    Thanks man! I know I have plenty to learn so I appreciate the offer.

    My calves are so wrecked from saturday. I guess I should have eased into them after not doing calves for a few weeks.

    Monday 11/29 WO

    close-grip Under-Hand pulldown
    60x6 80x6 100x6 120x6 140x6 160x6 180x6 +2 +2 +2

    Under-Hand BB Row (smith) (i'm including weight of bar, in weight amounts just to make it easy to read):
    95x6 115x6 135x6 185x6 205x6 +5 +4 +4 Need to go heavier on last set.

    DB flat bench:
    35x6 45x6 65x6 85x6 95x6 75x2 +2 +2. I had the same problem as i did with the DB incline presses. I am going to try BB presses next time and see if I can keep the weight more consistent with the clusters.

    Military press (Machine): 40x6 60x6 80x6 100x6 120x6 140x4 120x2 120 +2 +2 +2

    Close-Grip Bench (Smith):
    95x6 115x6 135x6 155x6 205x8 +5 +5 +4 Need to go heavier.

    My traps are pretty sore from saturday which I like. I'm looking forward to squats then rack deads wednesday.
