    Titan's Journal

    This is going to me my final journal. I will not be changing this one everytime i change routines. I am also planning to get onto a routine that will not change. This routine will be like Belial's. I will be using his journal for reference, as well as everyone elses comments.

    Current stats:
    Weight:169 BF: ~13% i believe
    Height:6'1"

    I will post pics as soon as i get my camera back.

    Monday- chest/triceps

    Tuesday- Legs
    Wednesday- off

    Thursday- Back/biceps

    Friday- off

    Saturday- Shoulders/deadlifts

    Sunday- off


    I will be trying to follow a diet similar to this:
    meal 1: ~500 calories, low GI carbs and protein
    meal 2: (pre-workout) ~200 calories, carbs and protein
    meal 3: (post-workout) ~650 calories, carbs and whey
    meal 4: ~550 calories, low GI carbs and protein
    meal 5: ~800 calories, carbs, protein, some fat
    meal 6: ~400 calories, carbs, high protein
    meal 7: ~400 calories, EFAs, very low GI carbs, protein


    My current lifts are:
    DB Bench- 85x6
    DB Row- 90x5.5 ?form?
    BB curl- 85x4.5
    Skulls- 85x6.5
    Back Squat- 225x4
    Deadlift- ?

    I want to gain about a pound a week. I would like my squat to be at 260x4, deadlift at 340x4, and bench at 100lb dumbells by december.

    shoulders/deads

    OH DB press- warmup40x5 50x5
    50x9 (failure) 45x6.5 (failure)

    I havent done these in a while, and i didnt have a spotter. It sucks because i have to kick them up to my shoulders, and then press them. THe first rep is the hardest, and is the one that limits the weight i do.
    Do you guys have someone help you on the first rep, or put them on your shoulders for you?

    Standing BB Press- 85x8 90x5.5

    Deadlift- Warmup 135x5 225x4
    275x5,3,2
    My grip is what limited me on these, it was my grip that was failing, not my back. I did these 3 inches off the floor, next time i am going to try them off the floor.

    BB shrug- 225x5 205x7
    Form may not have been so good on these, i will try better next time.

    DB shrug- 85x6

    Not too bad workout. I was trying to find the correct weight for DB presses, and they will be better next week.
    My grip is shitting me on the Deadlift. I havent done them all summer, so my grip has become weaker. I will fix this in time to come. MY shrugs also were not very good.

    diet Not too bad, ate slightly too little, so i had 2 slices of pizza with my tuna for lunch, and i had chilie for dinner.

    sleep 11 hours

    Heya man. Quick comment... if you're following my routine, you're going to be hitting the triceps pretty hard in a few days... so the overhead pressing should be kept short and sweet. I'd do a single warm up set, and one or two work sets, usually short of failure. Maybe do some lateral raises to finish them off.

    I should catch you on IM some time. Best of luck!

    Ya i was feeling that i did too many sets of OH presses. I hadnt done these in a while though, so i was trying to get the right weight. I will do 1 warmup and 1-2 heavy sets now. THanks Belial. I am going to be following your routine as closely as possible man. i was gonna do lat raises but, i felt i did too many presses and that my shoulders had enough work.
    1 question
    do you do the OH presses by your self, or do you have someone
    help you get the weight up and with the first rep?

    all comments are welcome and greatly appreciated. Belial if you could read my journal every once in a while and comment it would be really helpful.
    thanks man

    Good luck Titan. Keep something in mind: Belial's split and routine works for him. Not for you or for anyone else. It COULD work for other people but overall it worked for him. I personally tried it and it didnt work for me at all.

    I am not trying to discourage you from giving B's routine a go, all I am saying is that you might have to modify it to fit your own personal needs, etc. Good luck.

    if it doesnt work then i will modify it. What is it that you feel should be modified.

    Belial, your shoulders dont interfere with chest day? you are only getting one day rest inbetween.

    Exactly that Titan. My shoulders and triceps would easily get overtrained.

    Monday- chest/triceps

    ***** Shoulders would still be hurting from Saturday's session which would f*ck up my chest and triceps day. Belial doesnt currently use OH presses which would help with this split though.

    Tuesday- Legs
    Wednesday- off

    Thursday- Back/biceps

    Friday- off

    Saturday- Shoulders/deadlifts

    ***** My traps always get a little DOMS from back day. So hitting up deadlifts here would not only f*ck up my traps, but my I feel deadlifts some in my lats - which would be very sore from back day on Thursday.

    Sunday- off

    Just my $.02.

    my shoulders arent that sore right not, but my traps, and upper lats sure as hell are. I will see how this week goes, and what belial says, before i change anything, i will for sure be reducing the shoulder volume.

    Went for a little walk today... also for transportation.
    TO THE DENTIST!!!
    He put these horrible little rubber bands between my teeth. They are slowly prying them apart, so he can add even more horrible things onto my teeth next week... BRACES!!
    Omg these little ******* are painful, hurts to eat cheese for gods sake. I am interested to see how much more painful this gets.

    Diet Not bad... i had to eat 2 cans of soup for one meal, 50 protein ~100 carbs. That probably wasnt too good.

    sleep 11.5 hours what can i say, summer!
