great workout Gabe...i feel occlusion training for the upper body by occluding the lower musculature, is a lot more practical and perhaps even more beneficial, due to the larger muscle mass.

I completely agree. You will get a greater Gh response naturally for larger muscle groups with compound movements. You simply cannot match that with curls. So this comb is awesome. U the man!!

Really effective workout

Took a really long nap today, woke up at 10 oclock at night. Gym closes at 11, so had to rush in there.

Chest/tri shock

Strip top to bottom on pec dec fly
Strip on incline dumbbell press - 100, 85, 70, 50, 35
Strip on assisted dip machine
Rest paused as many push-ups as I could to disturbed song "facade"
Strip on overhead tricep presses
strip seated tricep press-downs

45 minutes. Proud of this workout...took a lot of guts to go in this late and get the job done.

Lookin good man! Sometimes workouts tend to be really effective when you have a "deadline" put on them. Seems to make them more intense!

Thanks, man! I agree. Right now I am trying to keep my workouts down to <1 hr for this purpose in part...make sure I am taking full advantage of every minute.

This morning I only had 30 minutest to train so I was moving!

Shock back, HIIT

Strip unilateral pull-down machine
Strip on venom rows w/ single dumbbell deads
strip close grip lat pull-downs
10 minutes HIIT on stairmaster

Short and brutal!

Had not trained for FOUR DAYS!!!!!!! For me, that is the equivelent to fasting for four days.

Finally felt well enough to get a workout in today. I was still tired and stiff, so I just went 50% intensity, 2 sets per exercise, 10 exercises, 20 sets total. Just wanted to get he blood flowing throughout my body, get back into a routine. I am going to just jump right back into my normal split starting tomorrow.
