TO THOSE VIEWING THIS: if you have comments please post them in a new topic i want this to be as uncluttered as possible, Thanks for your consideration.


Ok this is from my first Workout that i wrote down the weights in my journal all will say 8•30 but that is when i put them on the computer they were within 1 week of that date, and the second column is from today or the last day for that exercise. Most of these are not 1 rep maxes but the highest working set during my workout. Some show only the max weight used not number of reps.

Flat bench 8•30•01 5x95 8x85
Flat bench 9•18•01 10x95 5x115 3x120
Flat bench 12•09•01 10x115 8x135 3x145

Incline DB presses 8•30•01 25's (didnt write down reps not many)
Incline DB presses 12•09•01 10x40's 10x45's 5x50's


Machine Flys 9•18•01 120 lbs.
Machine Flys 12•09•01 190 lbs.

Preacher Curl 8•30•01 45 lbs.
Preacher Curl 12•02•01 65 lbs.

Pullups 8•30•01 could not do any palms away
Pullups 12•11•01 9 wide grip palms away

DB shrugs 8•30•01 65's
DB shrugs 12•11•01 105's

Squats 8•30•01 115x10
Squats 11•28•01 245x6

Leg Presses 8•30•01 135 lbs x 10
Leg Presses 10•17•01 420 lbs x 10


NOTES: Biceps seem to be the lagging part as far as strength gains but they have been growing fine so at this time i dont think i will re-think how i train them.

Training note: i made a lower volume workout today for the next 5 weeks (at least) Its not HIT but its less than i was doing, and it involves alot of shocking methods esp. Supersets. I had cut out all shocking methods pretty much for the last few weeks and went with basic sets. I like to change things often so that is why im going with this for a while. I might, just might try a total HIT workout if this "almost HIT" workout is productive. If not i know i will sometime in the future.
