What would a typical week look like? Hitting the whole body in 20 minutes seems amazing to me, I'm imagining your conditioning must be off the chain to accomplish this effectively. I'm assuming low volume?
Look .. it's really not rocket science and definetly it is not about "conditioning"

After a light warm up, I do 3 circuits. Each one looks like this: 1 set abs, 1 set flyes(chest), dips, chin ups (machine assisted), biceps, side delts, rear delts and finish with calves.

10 sec between sets, 15 reps each. Very light to moderate weight.

Between circuits, 2 min breaks.. maybe 3. During break, I do a vacuum for 3 sec followed immediately by tensing the abs for another 3. I do this 3 times in succession. Then the rest of the break.

Then 30 min cardio and 10 min streching.

That's it.

I'm doing 3x week full body workouts, mostly compounds, isolation for calves and triceps and one assistance (abs)

I'm taking a week's break after not missing a single workout for the last three months (that's right training on christmas eve and boxing day Smiley)

It's definitely not kind on the CNS and I find that not getting enough sleep (which for me is about 9 hours) will mess things further

Chest every monday at 5pm (bench press), then curls in the squat rack for the rest of the week.

Not judging, genuinely curious - do you do a lot of biking or soccer for legs apart from your workouts? Also how long have you been working out like this?
I do not train legs at all .. just calves. I do 1.5 hours of moderate cardio every day. I consider this my "leg workout". I have very good wheels genetically and I want them slim while having well developed calves. Like the old school symetry. I just think it looks better this way. I am doing this routine since september.

I have a suspicion that Bodybuilder Lex Reeves and Your Average Gym Rat are managed by the same individual.

Yes, and with posts mysteriously disappearing.  Told the guy to eat a bullet earlier....Hmmm

Yes on the "list-of-threads" page.  I don't actually know what it means but I can't imagine what else a phone icon would mean.

This is probably the best routine if you are natural.  Sprinkle in a day or two of cardio and you are set.

I am starting to take test prop tomorrow and will stay on the same routine. How "hard you hit the gym" is grossly overrated IMO.

I fully agree!

Also lol @ steroid monsters who loaf around for 2+ hours in the gym... epic announcing your lack of social life, responsibilities, ambitions, and heterosexuality

I never understood that. I just use the gym to stimulate the muscle. Life resides outside the gym. Like that dude james28 who instead of going to a nice place with a nice gal he bitched about how expensive is and cancelled instead went to the gym lol
