Default Timmah returns!

Ok, the gym finally opened here in my new town and I'm finally back into it. So, I've got no excuses but to kick some major butt. Add in the fact that its 2 doors down from the business I own and it makes it very convenient. I started the 24 mass workout this week with a couple changes to the split, but that's about it. First 2 workouts incoming.

My Split:


Day 1 - Chest, shoulders, triceps
Day 2- Back, Biceps
Day 3- Off
Day 4- Legs!
Day 5- Off
Day 6 - Day 1. Recycle 8x.

I'm treating my workouts as a bulk, my diet as more of a cut (or clean bulk? Every bulk should be clean!) simply because I've gotten fat and lazy. I have plenty of stored energy to help out, but will tweak accordingly if I feel too tired or overtrained

Day 2 - 194lbs - Back/Biceps/Forearms. Biceps are easily my weakest link.

Wide Pull Ups (Each time to failure): 10-8-6
Chin Ups: 8-7-5. Nice pre-fatigue on the bi's there
Seated row supersetted (SS or from now on) with bent over DB Rows: 100x12 SS 40'sx8 - 120-10 SS 35'sx6 - 130x7 SS 30'sx6
Concentration Curls: 15x12-35x6-30x8
Barbell Curls: 75x5-65x8-70x6
Hammer Curls: 30x8-35x6
Behind the back Wrist Curls: 45x10-60x8-70x6

Overall a great bump in my bi's, my lats are exhausted - every exercise seemed to hit them. My forearms are actually feeling it somewhat today, even though it felt like I coulda hit them harder, maybe added a Farmers walk in there.

Friday Day 3 - 194lbs, day of rest.

Thanks Jer, muscle memory has served me well. Hopefully will bring me back to some of my prior lifts. Goal is to reach those lifts by end of January and continue progressing after that while I work towards my goal of 3x BW in deadlift and squat and 2x in BP. (I'll have to do some serious cutting between now and then)

Decline BP: 200x6, 190x7, 185x7 SS with Flat DB Flys 25x8
Incline BP: 140x7, 135x7, 135x8 SS with Incline DB Flys 25x8
Shoulder Presses: 20x8, 25x8, 30x8, 35x8, 40x4, 35x2, 30x2, 25x3, 20x2
Dips: 4 sets to failure, last 2 I added on 5 negative reps.

Felt GREAT this morning. Whether its muscle memory or just the change in diet I had a lot more energy. I did 5lbs more in decline bp (same reps!), and incline did way more volume. I felt I could do more reps on incline bp so pushed it and ended out rest pausing out 7 before failure on that last set. I still feel weak on the dumbell flys, but concentrating on some strict form. I did more weight and more reps in almost everything I did, including shoulder presses. Didn't fail til I got to the 40's!
