Default The Road To Buffness Begins Today...Well actually yesterday lol

And it begins :-D
In an effort to destroy myself in the gym I have switched to volume training. With lower reps and heavyer weight though..6-8 reps on all lifts. I have found it allows me to focus on form and muscle itself more..Where if I do a higher rep range my form becomes very sloppy cause I concentrate more on getting the reps in than propper form. I'm using heavyer weight and still getting a massive burn with this rep range. As well I love to practice negative and foreced negative reps, as well as taking the sets to failure. Anyways here is the outline of my program. Based on a Lee Priest style program
-8 weeks
-not a cut or bulk just to see what happens
-Volume with lower rep range 6-8 reps for each lift
-Take sets to failure
-Use forced reps, Negative reps and Forced Negatives
-Lots of food and sleep
-30 second rest period between sets 1 min between excersises besides superset

I'll Have my stats up tomorrow probably

not realy high volume and your hamstring workout is sort of weak. You need some stiff legged deadlifts and some seated leg curls to fully hit all the ham strings

"Not a cut or bulk"

?????

Not sure what youre purpose it then...one must have a purpose to stay motivated!

Dont expect to gain any weight if your diet is weak. Actually, expect to lose weight if your diet is lacking.

I warned my friend to setup a diet, he didnt. After 3 weeks of working out with me, he lost 3 LBS...

All I have at my gym is the leg curl machine and free weights. So I'm a little limited in what I'm able to do for hamstings...What would be a suggestion to make it more of a volume workout?
thanks

You can use those free weights for deadlifts.

Well my first shoulder day on the new program and I'm pretty pleased. For shoulder press I got the 50lbs dumbells up withought a spotter. New record for me lol..Hitting the delts with 20 sets really gave me a good pump and major burn. The barbell shrugs were ok but I need to work on my grip. a 223lbs my hands were giving out a little. It will get better with time. And I tried a new thing with the dumbell shrugs. Before I do my reps for the set I pull them up for 1 rep and hold it for 30 seconds let it down and then do my 8 reps. Could not believe how well it worked:-D
