Today was biceps and forearms, didn't quite like my workout today maybe i just didn't get tired enough...

5 sets chin ups around 4 reps each

4 sets EZ curls 60poundx5 drop 50x5 superset hammer curls 30poundx6(2cheat reps)

4 sets EZ reverse curls 40poundx6 superset rev wrist curls w/the same around 10 reps

3 sets concentration curls 25pound around 8 reps (2 forced negs)

4 sets DB wrist curls 40sx10 drop 25sx10

5 sets behind the back wrist curls 120 pound 10reps + static hold.

Disgusting thing today at the gym: after workout i go to the sauna and stretch...so this guy came in as if he was at his house and blows his nose dropping everything at the floor...arghh... after that he starts making some kind of waist twists at the sauna...so his sweat was flying all around. I almost forgot he also spitted a lot, i kind of got used to... what really pissed me off, i guess it was to hot for him, was when he opened the sauna door to let the heat get out!! No comments...

Regards!

Great leg/calf workout today, after this it was a little hard to walk for a couple of minutes...

Squats : 20x20 40x20 60x15 3sets 100x8 3sets(toes outwards): 80x8 3 sets(toes inwards) 80x8

4 sets: Hyperextensions w/15pnd DB x10 superset leg ext. 40x10

This calf workout was great i had a great pump:

4 sets: seated calf machine 110x10drop80x10 + static hold superset rev calf raises w/40s x 20 superset standing calf raieses w/40s x20 drop bodyweightx20

In the last two sets of these i also made a drop set on the rev. calf raises, I should have done that since the beginning, my tibialis was really pumped up and it had a couple of veins popping out [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I recommend this making a static hold at the end of each exercise.. My legs were shaking at the and at the stretching..

Sunday 27/07

Today was calves and bi's.

For calves I worked out with a ladder (calf raises), at the beginning of each seat I pushed myself down to add resistance and at the end I was pushing my self up to complete more reps. Ended up doing about 550 reps, alternating toes pointing towards, inwards and outwards. Did the same with reverse calf raises, did about 250 reps of those.

Inbetween my calves workout i did about 12 sets of standing bicep curls, 52x8.

Great pump!

Regards
