What are you training for? It appears to be for nothing in particular.

Never happen!

of course it will happen.

im training all the biggest muscle groups.

i dont hit them once, i dont hit them twice, i hit them THREE TIMES per week.

3 sets of 10 is a proven formula.

i dont fuck around with worthless free weight excercises or spend my time on curls in front of the mirror.

i would say my training program is near as perfect as a program can be!

im preparing myself for tomorrows training.

today i've, so far, eaten 4 big macs and had 2 cans of monster energy. roughly 2500 calories.

ok d day is here!

ive been trying to put off training 10-20 times already

at one moment i was sure i wouldnt go today

but now im on my way, i even had some MESOMORPH!!

i will write later afterwards

note to self - never try to make decisions while in bed, bed almost always wins.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on November 17, 2016, 08:32:34 AM
ok im back!

i made it to the gym which is kinda big deal, havent been for 3 months.

feels damn good to be back!! maybe i should put out a video like rich piana

5 exercises is good, think theres benefits in training your whole body and it feels good mentally to only have 5 exercises to think about.

after training i went to mcdonalds and had 4 cheeseburgers.

there

home from the gym! now im starting to feel at home again, shortly i can start to put some weights on, these are just comeback warming sets.

i did some mesomorph pwo before, didnt do shit, got a slight headache need to drink more water and up the dosage on that shit

afterwards i had a big mac and 2 cheese burgers + a can of monster energy.

my workouts are always the same, at least for now

3 sets. 10 reps

5 exercises:

rows
incline bench
lateral raises
leg press
seated leg curls

as for eating unhealthy, i pretty much get all the nutrients i need and im not fat so its not really an issue

there

done with todays training!

this was only my 3rd time after a layoff of 3 months and now im allready starting to feel good, i thought i wouldve lost more strength but it looks like i will be back in no time.

somebody left all the weights on the leg press, it was a workout in itself to get them off...

after training i did 2 big macs and a monster assault - real food! tonight i will probably have some pasta.

took 3/4 scoop of mesomorph, didnt do shit but itch my nose and ears... ill go full scoop next time and see what happens.

next training is thursday - full body three times a week is the shit

It would have been a better leg work out, if you left all the weights on the machine!

Post by: ratherbebig on November 24, 2016, 09:58:44 AM
i really dont feel like going to the gym, i asked the magic 8 ball and it said YES so that settles it. ill go.

report later.

i had two big macs earlier today now im preparing for the gym by drinking a can of monster and having some chocolate. maybe ill have some mesomorph and see what happens with a full scope


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on November 24, 2016, 03:36:47 PM
i went. i conquered.

mcdonalds hade a line so i went home, hade a protein shake and then pasta!

Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on November 27, 2016, 08:24:05 AM
weather isnt good, not good at all

but ive said ill train three times a week and i will!

im preparing for the gym by eating 2 big macs

and then before i will have some greek yoghurt.

looking forward to it!

i will bring some music with me, not sure what kind maybe jazz


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on November 27, 2016, 11:57:28 AM
i forgot the music and instead i had to listen to sting  >:(

i put on more weight on 3 outta 5 exercises - rows, chest and legcurls. stayed the same on lateral and leg press will increase on tuesday.



Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on November 29, 2016, 09:34:08 AM
getting ready for todays training!

i prepare by eating kebab and a can of rockstar energy.

today i will exchange machine chest presses for incline smith machine press and put some more weight on the leg press.



Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on November 29, 2016, 02:04:02 PM
back from the gym had a great workout. incline smith machine presses is the shit and so much harder than the machine presses (no kidding!)

i feel everything is coming together nicely now for massive gains, im probably up 2-3 pounds already in bodyweight

afterwards i had 2 big macs and a can of monster energy. now im full as fuck


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 01, 2016, 03:07:44 AM
today is gymday!

kinda hard to know what to eat before i hit the gym but i'll have a sandwich and a monster energy. should do the trick.

maybe watch some dorian yates before to get in the mood. C'MON DIESEL!!!


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 01, 2016, 02:00:57 PM
ok done!

didnt feel like going today. was a little bit sore since last time.

but it ended up beign a great work out! sometimes its like that. first set in the leg press was painful, but then it just got better and better.



Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log

well when i can do more than 4 plates per side on the leg press, i will let you guys know!  :D

legs like tree trunks!!


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: GR1982 on December 04, 2016, 10:51:39 AM
I believe different types of squats would be way better than using the leg press as a main movement. Also I feel one needs more then just one exercise for each muscle. You can't be getting enough volume. By what you're doing

i think the leg press is superior to squats as it isolates the quads and maximize the use of the quads and nothing else.

i also think that 1 exercise per muscle group is enough, if its the right type of exercise - for example i doubt someone doing pull ups will not get a great back or someone doing dumbbell presses will not get a great chest.

and as far as volume i do them three times a week where as most people would train legs only once per week.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 04, 2016, 02:51:43 PM
done with todays training.

energy wasnt there, still did everything i set up to do which is a good feeling, but it did take quite a bit of work.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 06, 2016, 12:38:30 PM
pretty good workout, used a little less weight but more control especially noticable when i do seated leg curls where i squeeze and go slow on the negative.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 11, 2016, 01:22:29 PM
had a great workout!

back - pulled tighter than i usually do, elbows close to the body, all the way to the midsection.
then i did some machine lat pulldowns that felt good to, i have some elbow problems but they didnt bother me.

then i did chest, i dont move big weights but i squeeze with my chest muscles. getting slightly stronger there.

then lateral raises, i got a little bit of an energy dip after back and chest so i probably can do better there.

then legs. great tight controlled movement.

4.5/5!!

music: crowbars new album. pretty heavy shit!

cant wait until tuesday for my next workout.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 12, 2016, 03:57:03 PM
here's my new routine, i keep on adding excercises i guess i cant help myself  :D

im trying to work around elbow injury. no direct arm work.

seated rows
machine lat pulldown
smith incline press
smith oh press
machine lateral raises
calf machine shrugs
leg press
seated leg curl



Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 15, 2016, 01:49:25 PM
why cut back

why!

i decided to skip the overhead press today.

did seated rows. some angled lat pulldown machine that felt ok.

had a good incline bench, im about to up the weight on that one.

did lateral raises, went pretty well.

this time into my training the problems with a full body workout hits you, youve done back, chest and shoulders and still have legs left...  :-\

i did the standing calf raise shrug, feel pretty weird, not sure how beneficial that is... ill probably be better off just doing shrugs once a week with a shrug bar or something even though it would hurt my elbows a little...

then i did three good sets of legpresses, here im about to put more weight on as well.
followed by seated leg curls.

hungry as a mofo afterwards. 1 big mac and 2 cheese and im still hungry.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: NaturalWonder83 on December 15, 2016, 03:39:55 PM
Hmm which brand of mac and cheese?


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 18, 2016, 01:49:54 PM
good workout today, pain in the ass to get to the gym really didnt feel like it

best pump in a month!!

i replaced shrugs calf raise with regular shrugs with weightplates. not going very heavy but squeezing. three times a week i hope its gonna give something.

im actually gonna cook some real food now!

good training session today!

strong back
chest is coming up, adding some weight there
adding shrugs 3x week now, light weights really squeezing at the top
added some weight to the leg press as well

overall really good!


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: GR1982 on December 21, 2016, 05:39:48 AM
I've tried full body stuff before. If I did upper body first I didn't have enough energy to do a good lower body routine and the same if I did lower first I didn't have enough energy for upper. I've always had better results alternating upper body one day and lower body on the next

yeah i can see how its not ideal.

what makes it work for me is that i dont go to failure and do very few exercises. but even then after doing back and chest, i cant say i look forward to do legs... ill stick with this for a few months and then evalute it.

Post by: ratherbebig on December 22, 2016, 02:17:03 PM
ok training log for today

i hit the gym really late, no pwo before, didnt eat all that well... its pretty obvious im slipping now... when it takes you longer and longer and longer to get to the gym eventually you wont make it all so i need to sort this.

some kid occupied the smith machine for a good half an hour, he probably did oh presses, bench and incline, and rested or meditated between sets, dont know what the hell that was all about so i skipped it  >:(

wasnt a great workout but at least i made it there, everything counts, everything matters even the not so great workout adds something. or so i tell myself  :D


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 25, 2016, 09:52:19 AM
oh yeah!

training time!!

i had a hueg meal and then i had to sleep for 1-2 hours. but now im starting to get into the groove. ill have my pwo ready shortly and watch some dorian yates and choose a record to play while in the gym

great gains ahead!!


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on December 25, 2016, 01:25:58 PM
hit the gym, i got it all for myself  :)

over stretched a bit in the lat pulldown, so i took shoulders out of todays routine.

did ok rows. bench. legs. but nothing special. will be back stronger in two days.

ive decided to add a few exercises for 2017:

a couple of sets of leg presses for hamstrings and glutes.

some neck work.

one leg calf raises.

still got problems with my elbows, but im considering training arms once a week see how that feels.

thats about it :D

Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on January 01, 2017, 01:32:21 PM
i did two sets of hammer curls. 15 reps and 12 reps. very slow with one arm at a time. i dont feel any particular pain, nothing unusual. feels good to at least SOME direct armwork. i dont really believe in the idea that you should stay away from training arms altogether just cause your elbows hurting, just avoid SOME exercises


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: GR1982 on January 01, 2017, 02:14:03 PM
My elbows was bothering my some years back and at the time I stopped doing all direct triceps work and started doing high rep hammer curls and the pain subsided. After the elbow pain is gone start adding in triceps work

Post by: ratherbebig on January 03, 2017, 12:10:43 PM
great workout today!

seated rows 3x10 - very strict, elbows close to the body, pull all the way to the navel.
incline rows cybex 3x10 - slight weird machine, but one i can do without involving elbows too much.
incline chest 3x10 - my goto chest exercise while training alone.
oh press 2x10 - light weights, more for pump than anything else.
machine chest presses 2x10 - pump finisher.
lateral raises 3x10 - slow and strict.
shrugs 2x12 - with plates, holding them without using thumbs. slow and strict.
hammercurls 2x15
leg presses 3x10 - deep.
leg extensions 3x12 - slow and strict.
leg curls 3x12 (supersetting) - slow especially on the negatives.

crazy pump in arms after only 2 sets of hammers, done very slow one arm at a time, i feel people eyeing me thinking its light weight but i dont see anyone else doing one arm at a time up to 15 on those slow and strict, no momentum. wouldnt surprise me if i get better growth from that alone than a lot of people just throwing the weight up.

If you want to energize before your workouts just down about 2 cups or so of coffee and eat a tbsp of coconut  oil. That's what I do and it works like a charm and is alot healthier then those preworkout things you can buy. You can also add whey protein to it

had a great workout today  :D

first i did rows, i can do slightly heavier but it feels good to nail it 100 perfect form, ill stay at this weight a while before i move up.
then more back.
then i did incline chest, new PR.
then some machine presses.
lateral raises.
shrugs. probably need to go up in weight here and do 45 pound plates.
i keep doing the hammercurls. weight feels a little easier now. ill stay with the light dumbbells though, for now.
then it was time for my leg press where i was looking to add to the bar and it was heavy but i did all 3 sets of 10 with the new weight.
im not suppose to go to failure on this training program but i cant help myself sometimes, im pretty close to failure... it just feels better.

gym observations:

a couple who brought their clothes in, took them off beside the squat rack and of course they were both wearing tights  :(
both use so light weight it will take them ages to get any results.

I bet a lot of people wanted to steal the clothes they took off if they were nice like lulu lemon or gym shark

another great workout.

ill have to remind myself that i train 3 times a week full body, i used to train legs for example once a week with about the same intensity and now im doing legs 3x a week, pretty good. not sure how long i will stick to this but a couple of months at least.

gym observations:

some dude doing deads and dropping the bumper plates every rep to the floor, not sure what the point is in doing that? then he was on his knees doing shrugs in the squat-rack, again making  a lot of noise.

i remember when gyms that didnt allow cellphones... those were the days.

pretty good workout. again! not much to say. im going very close to failure in several exercises... oh well i hope my recovery is enough.
dont get a whole lot of doms no matter what i do.
will exchange plate shrugs for shrugs with shrug bar.

listened to metallicas new album its very good!

another day at the gym

felt very strong in the back.

then i did chest, very easy to try to put bigger plates on but its obviousy i need to move slowly here.
did some overhead presses afterwards and felt weak so im skipping them altogether.
strong in laterals.
legs felt very stiff and weak, still manage to do what i intended to do but i cant say it went up without a struggle... talking about leg press here.
hams felt better.

gym observations:

the usual crowd of cellphone teens.

a new thing that irritates me are couples. skinny guys with their fat ass girlfriends. not sure what they think they will accomplish by squats etc there fat ass is just gonna get bigger.

today it is exactly 2 months since i started training - nov 17th to jan 17th  8)
might not be a big deal to some but for me consistency is key.
ive made some pretty good gains in those 2 months both size and strength wise, in fact ive probably gained as much as one can expect in 2 months, after all, its just 2 months so  there's only so much you can do.

todays workout:

back - moving up to fast in weights, form suffers so have to back, added another set so 4 total.
incline bench is good, cant move up in weight, impatient, but at last im not struggling with the current weight as i was a few weeks ago.
lateral feels strong and good.
leg press cant move up there either, really tough at current weight, wish it felt easier i just have to wait it out until i get stronger... i go really deep so thats part of it.
hamstrings im at my max now so stick with that for a while.

gym observations:

some dude spent a good 20 minutes warming up before deadlifts then he disappeared. maybe he got too tired to actually lift?

the usual crowd doing benches, i just dont know if they progress... i dont think theyreall focused on working their chest, more a strength game for them, but theyre so weak i dont see the point.

really tired today.

decided to lower the weights slightly, sometimes it's good to do that to check your form.

did rows, rows machine, chest press, laterals, leg press, seated leg curls. skipped hammers and shrugs.

overall pretty good, everything counts even the not 100% times  :D

gym observations: the usual pack of teenagers. i saw a guy with a crossfit t-shirt (the offical logo one) i wished i had the crosshit t-shirt.

back at the gym!!

in good time. when you are out of the gym for a good 10+ days there's quite a risk you wont go for 14 days and then 3 weeks and before you know it you'd be gone for a month or more...

did a pump-day.. did 3-4 sets of 15 on everything. felt pretty good.

gym observations:

more people in the gym, not sure if its because end of january or the time of the day i was there... a couple of pretty strong dudes for once.

Post by: ratherbebig on March 16, 2017, 03:52:53 PM
ok! i went to the gym.

i did

lat pulldowns - havent done these in a while because of pain in elbows, felt good. did reverse grip.
lat pulldown different angle in a cybex machine.
seated rows.
seated two-cable rows.
incline chest
machine chest
lateral raises
shrugs
bicep curls

all in all felt good, i do slightly more exercises but since i save legs for another day i dont have to worry about that coming next... pretty good mentally.

see no reason why i shouldnt gain some mass on this routine as far as i eat enough so ill work that out next  ;)

Post by: ratherbebig on March 21, 2017, 11:57:28 AM
leg day.

i dont do a whole  lot for legs, still i feel its enough.

warm up with leg extensions. 2 sets
then legpress 4 sets.
then seated legcurl 4 sets.
then finish off with more leg extensions. 2 sets

felt good, i reached the weight goals i had in mine, progress slowly but steadily. im confident this is all i need, twice a week to get my legs growing.

calves is lacking, dont like the standing calf machine. ill do one leg calves at home.
tomorrow is day off.

Do u do high rep leg extensions?? What pre workout did U use??


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on March 22, 2017, 01:48:32 AM
i do 12-15 reps on leg extensions

pretty slow and controlled, im not convinced its completely harmless on the knees so i take it easy with it

i do my pes high volume + focus xt combo now which seems to work pretty well! both got the cotton candy flavor and im getting addicted to the smell of it  :D

your leg training is very basic, you should in my opinion split your legs into 2 days. Train Hammies hard with buns(my favourite day) and the other day Quads. In this way you can still do a 4 day split with upper/lower. If you take a girls advice :-*

had a great training session today

increased weight on most exercises

tomorrow is legs then i take the weekend off

only problem now is i could probably eat a little more, just to be sure


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on April 04, 2017, 12:33:30 PM
very short session today

4 sets of leg press
4 sets of seated leg curl


when im not in the mood for it i just make it quick.


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on April 06, 2017, 01:47:21 PM
did lat pulldowns, rows, incline bench, lateral raises

went up in weight on hammer curls, hurt my elbows a little more than usual but boy otherwise it felt good, huge difference from working with a weight i can get 12 reps with and a weight where i have to make an effort to get 8 or 10, the whole feeling in the biceps afterwards is different, pump etc. it feels like its growing right there and then.

i love hammers
I just saw a tip where u keep the dbs on the front on your body, not on the sides

Careful with your elbows-stretch and massage your tris and forearms and wrists

Lastly...where's the kraken?????

ok training day.

but i was pumping myself upp too much before hand and the energy/strength just wasnt there.

thats what you do sometimes i guess.

thinking youre ready to add more weight to the bar when youre really not.

very few people at the gym so cant complain about that.

tomorrow = legs


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on April 15, 2017, 12:35:51 AM
for whatever reason i skipped legday this week, doing it tonight.

did upper body yesterday.

back
shoulders before chest, usually the other way around but i feel i would prioritize shoulders for a bit
chest

ive heard people train their abs, maybe i should try that sometime  ;)

im not doing that abwheel though, thats painful


Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on April 15, 2017, 12:48:44 PM
did legs.

3 sets of legpress
3 sets of seated leg curl

yes it may not result in 100 percent growth, maybe just 75% but 75% is enough
feels pretty good to go to the gym and be in and out so quickly and not have to feel "oh uh, leg day"



Title: Re: ratherbebig's training log
Post by: ratherbebig on May 10, 2017, 12:33:08 AM
had a break from the gym but im looking to get back - any day now  ::)

here's my new routine 5 sets of 5, three times a week:

row or pulldowns.
lateral raises
bench
legpress
seated legcurls

few exercises to keep it short and sweet yet with only 5 reps per set should keep it interesting to see what kinda weights i can move.
some would argue its not ideal for hypertrophy, we'll see about that  :D
