Can-did,  do you workout at the Fit Factory or the other ones in Manteca?
normally i workout at cali total fitness, been going there for about 6 years now i guess. i used to work at the fit factory location in moesto, and occasionally the manteca trainign studo and supp shop. the guy who owns it is really cool and sometimes lets me come in and use his gym, but normally if i go in there ill just chat for awhile.




meso- i dont know. i think it is a psychological thing. quickerblade touched on this in a thread about cardio on the training board. i think eating tends to make people lazy and less motivated

I get that same feeling when i cut carbs... feel stronger.... but it only lasts so long.   I think it is just a response to an increase in GH level output of your body..   Decrease carbs and you decrease insulin for a bit...  sometimes insulin hampers GH.  Just my thought.

on wednesday i did arms and i did something like this=

barbell curls 135 4 sets 10

v bar pushdowns 4 sets 8

hammer curls 65lb dumbells..

i forget what i did the rest of the workout.


yesterday, thursday, i did chest. i did flat bench, machine flys, machine flat press(seated), dumbell press, cable crossovers.


my strength on my chest and tricep has been lagging lately alot, i think its because they are my worst body parts (genetically), and ive been doing my no carb no fat daylight diet... but my shoulders back biceps abdominals and every part of my legs are still making strength gains..


heres a new pic i took today

thanks chemist  Smiley


i have been training, i just havent been filling in my logbook.

some numbers from this last week of lifting:


smith machine barbell rows with 315lbs 10 reps(some cheating(swaying) on the last 3-4 reps.

smith machine behind the neck press 275lbs 12 reps X 3 sets. (below the ear, above the head)

barbell curls 135lbs 4 sets of 10  (some cheating on the second and third sets, but first and fourth set were perfect form..last few reps of fourth set i did use a bit of momentum)



chest and triceps are not making any strength progress, but are looking fuller and leaner.

hey man

weigh about 213 right now ( at 5'8 " )

bench personal best is 405x3  can do 315x13 if i go for reps
lets see,,what else,,,deadlift im right there with you,,,shoulders, squats, pretty much everything else

one thing you dont ever talk about is WARMING UP

my split is  chest back legs shoulders arms


i can't help but think you would see some improvements if  you ramped up on your lifts

for bench press i do the bar x 12, 135x 15  225 x 15  315 x 8  365 x 5  then MAYBE  i do more weight,,if not then one more set,  and i do this on all the compound movements...

 try it?

you dont' have to do the heaviest weight you can do every time you go in the gym, its bad for your joints and connective tissue

if you are getting in the 3-5 rep range,,,that is heavy weight, just not good on the body to do that week in and week out

lee haney - stimulate, don't annihilate

strong guy tho!
