Good stuff Cord. Was thinking last night and this morning I'm do for a change up as well. After tonight's workout I will start rethinking over the weekend what to do.

Gun show, LMAO. Won't be suing you, bro. I used to do the same. The ol' tendons and ligaments can't really stand it any more, though.

Love the bag workout. Gotta get me one again.

I missed this. Age 35 is middle age; NOT! I'm consider when I hit 50 as being middle aged especially since I'm 40 but don't feel like it.

Being looking over a new workout plan and will implement on Wednesday. Will need some fine tuning over the weeks but looks like a promising program.

http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0KFY/is_7_24/ai_n26979199

This program incorporates much of my own idealism which I think will benefit me. Am looking forward to giving this a go. Will let you know my thoughts as I give it a try.

Looks interesting. The only thing I would say is to reign back on the volume of warm up sets - 2-3 should be sufficient, 4-5 and i think you are on the way to diminishing returns and unnecessary joint wear.

The body split is unusual, but not unsound.

i agree with the carb capping PM, and also validating cardio as part of a muscle growth routine.

I may well adapt this myself in 10 weeks time when its time for me to change again.

Let me know how you get on Bro'

I agree totally about the warm-ups Cord and planned on 2-3 as thought it was over doing it. Perhaps if I was juiced it would be okay, and perhaps younger with a better recovery; but at 40 that is way too much for me to handle.

Back in 2002 when I was doing H.I.T. by Robert E. Spector, I had very good results but my results were increased when I incorporated myself a few seconds rest period and then immediately push out a few more reps. By implementing this I found it a sound way for my body to lift more and get bigger and when I looked back at records when I did H.I.T. a second and third time with limited results; this was the only thing I was doing different. Unknowingly I was doing the rest-pause that Dante discusses.

Also I am used to a routine that works an A-B-A for one week and then a B-A-B for the next week. I like this sort of workout so won't be too much of a change for me. Also the workouts I've been doing are one exercise per body part, so again fits into my style of working out. And I have worked programs that cycled different exercises per body part with success; and like this idea. With Dante's minor changes and incorporated things I already know, this I hope will be a smooth transition with good results.

I do plan on increasing my protein and will look to not eat any carbs after 6:00 PM. I will be doing by BJJ on Tuesday and Thursday so getting cardio. However I won't at this time be getting too intense with the nutrition portion. That I will do as results come to fine tune the workout. I already have a fairly decent eating pattern that may only require initial tweaking.

Looking forward to Wednesday.

Last night was an EXCELLENT workout. Took me about 1.5 hours due to fine tuning however I really enjoyed it. My chest and arms were still vibrating this morning and sitting at my desk writing and typing I could feel this; still can now.

For my workout last night I did "A1" which was:

CHEST - Decline Bench Press
SHOULDERS - Military Press
TRICEPS - Closed-Grip Bench Press
BACK (Width) - Hammer Strength Underhand Pulldowns
BACK (Thickness) - Bent-Over-Rows

I did 3 warm-up lifts per each followed by the Rest-Pause lift for the final. For the Rest-Pause you are to lift approximately 8 to failure and then breath deeply for 15 breaths, lift 2-4 reps to failure, rest and take another 15 deep breaths and then lift again for 1-2 reps to failure.

When doing the Chest I over did the warm-ups and went to failure which I don't think you are suppose to. I was only able to get 1 lift after my first 15 breaths and I could barely move the bar for the next one. However today I can feel my chest and know I lifted. I was careful on the next lifts not to go to failure on the warm-ups which made a huge difference.

Surprisingly I found I was lifting more weight then normal in my other programs. Perhaps the warm-up required for this system made a difference because I've never warmed up this way. Plus knowing that there is only the one huge lift at the end, I put in as much intensity as I could. This I believe is where and why the growth will happen.

Looking forward to Friday and the B2 lift. Also it will be nice having a A3, B4, A5, B6 lifting days with different exercises. This will really change things up for me and really shock the system.

I have put my BJJ on hold. While I love to grapple I just do not have the focus at this time. I'm finding so many reasons not to go and this tells me that perhaps I need a break. On the other hand I have such a renewed vision for lifting which I really want to focus on. It bothers me that I don't have the focus for BJJ and I know it will disappoint some people, it disappoints me, but it is what it is for now. Plus working out Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then doing BJJ on Tuesday and Thursday; it seemed I never really had a break to sit back and relax. Not to mention BJJ classes I have to come home from work and nibble on something and then head off for class from 6:00 to almost 8:00. Always wished classes were a little bit later.

So will continue to lift and my expectations are big for this especially since I have the focus, the intensity and am finally willing to drop some ego to drop weights knowing that because of this I will see better increases later.

Wish me luck.

Dereck, you have my understanding re. the MA/lifting balance. I havent been to savate for ages and I do feel bad about it, and do miss it, but my one true love has always, and will always, be lifting. Its just an integral part of who I am. When you have family, and work, and obligations, sometimes you have to prioritise both time and finances. You have a kick-a$$ gym 30 seconds away from your front room, no fees, no travelling. Its an understandable situation.
Whilst I would never have tried to influence you, as you know your own limits better than most, i do think its good for your cervical spine to have a rest from rolling, and think you will give it a chance to improve and heal as well as it can in this hiatus from your MA.

This in turn, will help your lifting.

I bet after 4 months, you will get the hunger for BJJ again, but go back rested, stronger and healthier.

Keep lifting Bro'
