    Bad chest/delt day!!!!!

    Incline DB Press 85X6, 75X9, 65X11
    DB side lat raises 40X6, 35X9, 30X12

    and some abs first time i've done abs in a long time! And boy does it show! My "spare tire" looks like a racing slick off a top fuel dragster. I hope I can cut up by spring so I can take my shirt off in public and feel OK about it.

    Im cutting. I dropped my calories to 3000. I think I am going to add 200, I need some more carbs to help get through workouts. Plate pinches are great for the top of my forearms, I don't really feel anything on the lower part of my forearm. I got a captains of crush gripper about a year ago and it has helped my grip but I don't think that has really aided me in my lifts, since im not a powerlifter anymore.

    *shrug on bodyfat* I dunno. Where do you think your bodyfat is in relation to mine? (Prior to illness, of course. God knows what my body has done over the last weeks.)

    LOL. I'm a bodybuilder. My goal is to build muscle. I don't gain much muscle doing deads. I gained 100lbs in less than 2 years when I was a powerlifter doing deads. Now strength you can gain doing deads! But I haven't noticed any more mass from them.

    I thought your goal was more muscle, not just strength? For Lying tricep extensions do you use db's with both hands or do you do a barbell or something.

    Thought I'd let you know that I'm gonna try out your lifting plan for a couple of weeks. I just got off a strength cycle and I need something to pack on some muscle now that I can lift more.

    Do you periodize your intensity on that plan or just go to failure every week?

    While recovering from strep throat the last week or so I decided when I get better its time to get harcore about bodybuilding. I was reading through some BBing books I have while my fat a$$ was on the couch and read across about intergrated variable split. Its 6 days a week and its hard to explain but each body part has an A, B, and C workout. A is low intensity, B is med. intensity (B is considered the "bread and butter"), and C is hollistic (a giant set). Each week is kinda a different workout. Its tough for me b/c I have always been a limit strength person and moving to exercises that are anaerobic and some aerobic is tough! Anyway here's how It went Yesterday and today:

    Yesterday(when I started)
    Chest-A
    BP 10 reps/10 sets/@155(85%max)

    Back-C
    Back Ext. 5 reps@45lbs(85%max)
    Deadlifts 12 reps@315(70%max)
    Pulldowns 40rep(I could only do 20)@90(40%max)

    Biceps-A
    Ez-Curl 10rep/10 sets@85(85%max)

    Abs-B
    Russian Twist 5 reps/3 sets/@45lbs(85%max)
    Crunchers 5 reps/3 sets/@25(70%max)
    Leg lifts 40 reps/3 sets/@BW

    Today:

    Shoulders-B
    DB Press 5 reps/3 sets/@70(85% max)
    lat. raise 12 reps/3 sets/@35(70%max)
    Military Press 40(I could only do 20) reps/3 sets/@55(40%max)

    Tricep-B
    Nose Crunchers 12 reps/3 sets/@105(70%max)
    Pushdowns 40reps/3 sets/@90-80(40%max)

    Legs-C
    Squats 5 reps@300(85%max)
    Leg Ext. 20reps@140(40%max)

    Forearms-A
    Wrist Curls 12 reps/10 sets/@135(85%max)

    I have a ways to go to get 40 reps in.
