Been going hard since school ended. Basketball and gym. Working out on a 4 day split - chest/tri, back / bi, shoulders, legs/abs. I'm about to start taking creatine (already taking protein). Trying to get more GAINS.

Anyone watch the hodge twins?

1.2 pounds from the 50 pound lost weight mark. So Close! Only 11.2 pounds away from goal (178)! I suspect my weight might go up to 190 though in the next couple days, which is fine because after I started lifting I notice my weight will flux between a 2 pound area, then when the next weak comes I'll have lost it and start a new cycle over. I've lost about 10 pounds the last month, almost 50 total. When I hold my daughter who is 30 pounds and feel her weight I'm just amazed at how much lighter I am and that I've almost lost twice what she weights. I notice I can jump much higher too, I'm not so easily tired. I can run about half a mile now before I start braething hard versus running a block and huffing air like a SoB. Feels great.

Also I've been incorporating some healthy snacks in my everyday eating habits. For example I eat 86% cooca dark chocolate now which contains as much antioxidants as anything. What I do is melt down the bars and put shelled walnuts on the chocolate and let it hardened for dark chocolate cover walnuts. So not only do I get some dark chocolate (not a lot), but omega-3s as well. The dark chocolate is great for the heart and lowering heart disease as well as the brain and the walnuts is great for the brain too.

I also bought some 100% cocoa dark chocolate bars but I'm leery on using those. I tried a piece and it's super-bitter and totally unsweetened. The 86% at least as a tiny bit of sweetness to it to make it edible.

They're these two twins who just make work out videos on youtube but they're pretty funny. It's pretty much the only workout videos I watch just because I find that a lot of their advice is useful and they give me a laugh or two.

Wow thanks for this. I don't do benching, but still useful. Probably will flter through their videos. I busted out laughing when he was talking about the Skull Crushes and it being unnatural, and he was like "Don't try this shit if you have elbow pain."

I've always been on and off with my weight training for various reasons.

Started back up about 2-3 months ago and I've made more progression in these last 2 months (without the aid of supplements) than I did in the total amount of time I had trained before that (lots of supps). It's definitely due to having a better understanding of training and diet.

I do count cals, but not to the point where I know exactly how many I'm getting. I know that I'm roughly in the 3000 range and some days I'll go up to 3250, maybe more, sometimes I'll be down at 2750. So as long as I'm roughly in that range, I'm happy.

Like I said above, the last 2-3 months I have trained without any supplements, well that's about to change. Got a tub of ON Serious Mass today, added to my already decent cal intake, I'm hoping to see a bit more progression.

Will give feedback on the results.

Me too. I have post workout pics from a couple years back and i have post workout pics from now where you can really see the difference, but I never took official "before and after" pics that you always see on infomercials and stuff.

I know. I had a gut when I was 238. If I work semi-loose clothing you couldn't tell I was 238 unless you saw my gut, which is now pretty much gone. Rightnow I'm just working on that hard-to-get-fat that's the bottom layer of the belly. Most stubborn stuff lose, but it's going...slowly away. I want to try to have some definition by July when it's pool time. I work my core 3 times a week and my upper and lower body two times a week. Then run 3 times a week too, but I also run for 1-2 minutes between every other set on lifting days too. Probably run about 1 to 1.2 miles when it's all said and done.

Thats a good amount of muscle in that time frame. I'm trying to make some more gains too. I've always been a lanky muh****uh.

Sup guys? Didn't really wanna see this thread die as this would be a pretty good thread, of ya ask me. Plus I don't wanna sign up for BB.com.

Anyway, how're y'all holding up? Thought I might share my training sessions for the next 5 weeks. I do this on Mondays and Fridays. I really like this template which is patterned after the Lean Hybrid Muscle approach of Elliott Hulse and Mike Westerdal and supposedly this neo-Westside Barbell method Chandler Marchman cooked up. Look up Elliott on YouTube if you have time. One of the best freaking decisions I've ever made in my LIFE. Search up strengthcamp for his training channel as he has like 2 other alternative channels that deal with more esoteric stuff. Chandler's also a worthy watch. He's more for those guys who do appreciate some science but want to hear it in a more meathead manner. Anyway,

POWER/EXPLOSIVENESS
Power Clean (from the hang): 100 lbs x 5, 120 x 5, 130 x 3, 120 x 4

HYPERTROPHY
Density Sets of the ff exercises (7 mins each || Ladder of 1-2)

Push Press: 90 lbs || Reps Performed: 30
(Did a 100 last week but Ipmy form went to shit so I took it down a notch. Don't wanna get stuck with shitty form for the rest of my life)

Weighted Chin-Ups: BW+ 10 lbs || Reps Performed: 20
(Did +15 last week but I started doing it on the TRX this week since I don't have my playground anymore. Chin-Ups on rings/suspension gear are THAT much harder than they are on fixed bars. Safer for your elbows and shoulders too. But yeah, I had a pretty hard time with this one.)

Weighted Push-Ups: BW + 65 lbs || Reps Performed: 27
(Nothing much with this one. Looking to get at LEAST 30 on Friday before I progress to 70 lbs)

CONDITIONING/FINISHER
A) KB Snatch x 5 (right hand)
B) KB Overhead Walk x 2 laps on my floor (right hand)
C) KB Snatch x 5 (left hand)
D) KB Overhead Walk x 2 laps on my floor (left hand)
E) KB Swings

Complete circuit 3x
Only have a 15 lb Kettlebell, so yeah, plus it's just for conditioning work anyway.

As I said, this template is pretty damn solid if you're game for it. I combine this with my intermittent fasting and I already gained like 6 or 7 lbs in the last 2 months. I'm doing this scheme again because I haven't followed it properly the last 2 weeks due to a mini vacation plus moving houses. Funny things is that it might seem like a lot but it makes me feel energized. Like Pavel said, the best way to train your CNS and muscular system is to make continuous strength gains without breaking the muscle down too much. Or else.

I just made the switch over to Fast Fuel, its a good clean supplement with no banned substances.

I used to use Jack3d, NO Xplode, Neurocore, Assault, Hemo-Range, Body Octane, and a few other ones. Really liking Fast Fuel right now though.

Deadlift 335 Singles*5 (double overhand, no belt)
Ab Circuit: Planks, Side Planks, Russian Twists, Full Contact Twists, Stomach Vacuums, Reverse Crunches, Hanging Leg Raise, Russian Ballet Leg Thrust, Consecutively.

Semper Fi.

Feeling the pump and a near bulletproof stomach.

lol nyg i was 190-ish a few years back (and dropped weight fast since goals have changed was pretty damn strong back then. im one of thsoe dudes that can pack on mass and lose it the fastest, but my natural frame is like 5'11" 150ish Reason why I give out so much advice is because I've studied, researched, implemented, and flat out know a lot of stuff in regards to the brain and the body which is my major in college. and the sources go like this
If you want quirky exercises to make you look symmetrical, go to Vince Gironda
If you want to get big and strong, ask Dave Tate or Mark Rippetoe
If you want to be an athletic freak, then KELLY BAGGETT is your man
If you want two sites which u had to depend the rest of your life on then it is T-Nation, and higherfastersports
If you want bigger arms, go Poliquin.


nice circuit.. very cross-fitty.. but not gay. an admirable feat!
