Man, it's inspiring to hear of people so dedicated to subject like bodybuilding and all that it is connected to. I'm sure you'll play a key part taking the game to a higher level some day, Venom.

While I'm at it, what is your opinion on DC training? I've been thinking of things to switch over to from my DUP program, and the rest-pausing and 3 workouts a week sound really good, at least for now.

Wow! Miss a day or two in the "Journal" section and you miss Venoms journal being filled with a ton and a half of information. Thanks guys, very great info and inspiring to read.

Bahir, can I get some info out of you? Your stats and experience regarding body building.

Awesome, O.S!

I do something similar on the seated lat pull-down. I put my legs up and row back. I'll have to try that out.

Thanks for stopping by and the kind words, Bahir!

I have talked to Dzoni and Fahsy about that program quite a bit. I think it is solid; particularly for strength gains. I watched several of Fahsy's workouts live, and they are extremely hard-core. Its basically do or die each and every workout, so be prepared for some hard-core lifting.

I think giving it a try would be just fine. Then you might flow into an hypertrophy cycle after you are happy with your strength gains. I would talk to those two for more details while you do it.

Yeah, really gotta have the mindset. Have to enjoy the fact that you're dry reaching in the parking lot, BEFORE entering the gym! Haha.

Hey, Venom. I'll hook you up with something. Check the PM!

Thanks, bro!

Had a couple of great sessions today. In the morning I did old schools trap and delt workout, phase 3 for each. On this phase he absolutely blasts the rear delts. Its a fantastic workout.

Then I just did back and calves:

Seated unilateral pull downs 3 sets, 1 strip on first 2, tripple drop on the last set - started out with 4 plates and a 10 on either side, went down in weight each set.

3 sets Incline face forward dumbbell rows - 80 pound dumbbells, stripped all the way down on the last set

3 sets lat pull down machine, variation in which I put my feet up on the stand and retract my scapulae like a bent over row. Great for the middle back. Did another strip on the last set

I did some shrugs here as part of old schools trap routine that I could not do in the morning. Consisted of 4 sets barbell shrugs, with 1 strip on each set, partial reps on the strip for 60 seconds. Great pump

Strip all the way down to from 90-40 pound dumbbells on bent over rows

Behind the neck pull downs 3 set, strip at the end

4 sets of seated cable rows. This felt great; I maxed it out at 300.

Then I did calves. Got myself pumped up with harvest of sorrow by metallica, and did a huge ascending strip on incline calve raises.

I think that was everything for back, but I may have missed something. But I don't think so...

Very good set of workouts yesterday. Did 20 minutes of HIIT in the morning, followed by 20 minutes of moderate intensity cardio.

At night I did chest triceps. I got to workout with Fahsy for part of my chest workout, so that gave me a boast of energy!

I did strips on the following exercises

Incline dumbbell
Incline free weight machine press
flat press machine

4 sets incline fly machine

Incline Bench
5 sets

Low Cable crossovers
3 sets

High Cable crossovers
1 set

then for triceps:

5 sets heavy seated tricep press down machine (maxed out)
Strip on over head tricep extensions

Good workout! I am feeling very good right now, and everything is going well.
