MONDAY, DAY 1, CHEST & BICEPS

- same format


COMMENTS:

- wasn't so out of breath as previous workouts; adapting already or not pushing it as hard?

- UPPED reps, weight or both ... equals gains.

- Decline Barbell Bench Press; based on 1RM I increased this by 13+ lbs. I will take this little amount and grow on it.

- Single-Arm Concentrated Bicep Curls; 1RM = 90 lbs. AWESOME. I pushed HARD to get this done. I yelled at myself saying 1 more, 1 more, 1 more and I got them all. Years ago I lifted 84 lbs with my left arm only; already an increase.

- Body feels good. Body feels good walking around almost as if after only a week I've got some great gains ... must be confidence.

- Looking forward to tomorrow.

WEDNESDAY, DAY 3, DELTS & TRICEPS

- same format


COMMENTS:

- One of the BEST workouts I have ever had in my life

- UPPED reps, weight or both

- Triceps were worked like I have never before; looked like blocks of concrete when done.

- Switched out Seated Tricep Press for Lying Tricep Press. Did so out of safety sake as without a partner the weight I needed to lift made it impossible for me to do by myself.

- Loving this workout; again thanks Cord.

- Legs today; still scared a bit as hate legs and what a hard workout feels like. Mentally preparing already.

Was unable to workout Thursday for legs; life got in the way.

We are experiencing heat wave and is 1C (33F). Everything is melting and had to remove the snow from around my house as did not want to experience flooding again like I did in 2009. Also under a lot of pressure from work as doing 2 people's jobs right now as it is our fiscal year-end. Things have been so hectic that down time was needed.

Too many plans this weekend to workout unfortunately. Tonight work for the RC that won't see me up till 1-2 PM (don't get home till after 6:00 AM). Got some running around to do and then heading to a party for one of my RC buddies. Then when get home in the early morning I have plans to watch a recorded UFC with another RC buddy. Then Sunday is Super Bowl ... enough said. GO STEELERS GO.

Back on track Monday.

even with hiccups along the way, sounds like you're getting into it buddy, glad its suiting you so well cool

I too am following the same routine in regards volume and HIT training philosophy, but have tweaked frequency and the split to suit my working week/life

Week 1.
Monday/Thursday: Chest + Back
Tues/Fri: Shoulders + Arms + Legs

Week 2.
Mon: Chest + Bi's
Wed: Back + Tri's
Fri: Delts + Legs

So far so good cool

Still plugging along and loving it. It has been a long time since I've seen such good results both physically and mentally from this program. It is set up in such away that it prepares you for that final lift that you want to give it your all. I have been increasing reps, weight or both each workout always trying to do the one before better. I know this is a good program and not only am seeing results on my logs but when my wife starts to notice that is a clear indication I'm doing something right.

Legs tonight; giving it my all.

I agree Dereck, I think it has come around at the right time of life for us as well, bceause I know that in my 20's I would have upped the volume and over-egged the pudding. Right now I am just loving the brevity of each bodypart- very joint friendly cool

I am seeing good results too, though I am focussing my eating plan on cutting bodyfat, my lifts are improving, whilst I have now dropped 9lbs in 2 weeks!! (17 lbs since Jan 2nd) smile

That is AWESOME Cord. I too need to cut some body fat. My wife and daughter have recently come on board and want to also become healthier for eating. All the treats we usually have are gone. We changed our bread. For snacks we have celery and carrots in water in containers in the fridge. Hopefully these little things add up to good losses.

My problem, I don't eat enough to grow but eat enough to gain bad weight. Today however I am doing much better and while still need to cut some body fat from my abdomen I can clearly seem my abs. My pants fit better, I can go another hole on my belt. Baby steps.

My favorite days to work out are Delts & Triceps and Chest & Biceps. Heck I like them all it is just Back and Leg days I really get tuckered out while on the other days I'm not as tired afterwards but those body parts I can FEEL; loving it.

Onward and upward buddy.

Two back to back amazing workouts; this routine is the BOMB.

It has been years since I have immersed myself this deep into a workout and I'm loving it. And the results are coming and I can see it in how I look, how I feel and how much I'm doing. Every workout has me trying to beat the previous weight, reps or both; and I'm doing it. In 3 weeks on the Decline Bench Press I've gained 30 lbs; that is 10 lbs per week. All lifts are like this; it is absolutely amazing. If only I had a training partner I could kick it to the next level. Have few that seem to want to come on board so hopefully I can get them started so that they will be in the mix and we can help each other. In the meantime I will just keep plugging away. Some heavy weights I'm dealing with by myself but am finding I'm backing off a little for my safety.

I feel good. I'm looking better. It is being noticed by others especially my wife. With some cardio to up the fat burning this could be one hell of a body for the summer. I'm 42. I feel like I'm 18. I'm working out like I'm 20's. I look like I'm in my early 30's as nobody can believe I'm this old. There are benefits to these 13+ years of lifting and I'm glad I'm on this ride. Let her buck.
