My pen busted in my pocket on the way to the gym so I didn't get to log my workout weight.

Leg Extensions: 4X12

BB Squat: 4X10-12

Hack Squats: 4X8-12

Leg Press: 4X10-12

French Press: 4X10-12

Tri Pushdowns: 4X8-12

Rope Pushdowns: 4X12

Reverse Grip 1-Arm Pushdowns: 4X8

Originally I had planned to workout in the morning, but didn't get much sleep because of the heat, then woke up with a splitting headache and a sharp pain in my stomach, went back to sleep woke up feeling a lot better. Was kind of nervous about where my intensity would be at when I hit the gym, but I put those concerns to rest. Murdered my legs today, kept "No Excuses, No Regrets, No Surrender" on my mind the entire time. I'll definitely be feeling this one tomorrow.

Wide Grip Pullups: BWX50

DB Pullovers: 50X12, 55X12, 60X10, 65X8

Dips: 25X10X4
ss w/
Incline DB Flys: 20X10, 20X10, 25X10, 25X10

Cable Flys: 30X12, 40X10, 45X10, 50X8/30XFailure

Another awesome workout, feel like everything is clicking right now. In my quest to widen my back I will be performing a variation of the different variation of the pullup twice a week for 50 perfect reps, regardless of how many sets it takes. Also when I'm able to hit around 12, I will be adding weight. Right now I'm thinking of 4-5 different variations that I will be implementing. Chest went great, I can't think of two better chest exercises than the DB Pullover and the Dip. Time to get big.

I think Arnold used to do that with pull-ups, i.e. pick a target number and then shoot for it no matter how many sets it takes.

Yeah, that's where I got it from, for me I think its going to work, one of my downfalls w/ pullups is endurance, I usually bust out a decent first set, but after that I got nothing. I think through bettering my endurance, increasing weight, and hitting them from multiple angles I should be able to get this ball rolling.

Cardio: later in day

10 mins HIIT sprints on treadmill

Shoulders felt great afterwards, cardio had me drenched, spent my lunchbreak reading JHR at work, devising a good strict cardio program that I can follow from now on. All I got to say is I love this site.

"No Excuses, No Regrets, No Surrender" - Dude I like how that sounds a lot, I'll steal it a bit when I want to quit in the middle of my cardio...

Getting there, I've kinda pushed it to the back of my mind and turned my focus towards my back, width and thickness, with that the weight will come. Taking it one rep at a time though.
