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

Why don't you post your weights, sets, reps? Your actual workouts?

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.

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.

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.

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...  Undecided

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.

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.
