All-Out 8-Week Mass Attack. No Holds Barred.
Day # 37 of 56 - 02-22-02
Today was one of those days where I just didn't want to get up out of bed at all. It rained and turned really cold in the middle of the night so getting up from a warm bed was the last thing I wanted to do at 4:30 am. But that's where the dedication comes in and I rolled out around 4:40 am.
After arriving to the gym and warming up for a few minutes I was ready to blast my back.
Chin ups - 2x10
Dead lifts - 1x10 - 135lbs, 1x8 - 225lbs, 1x6 - 315lbs, 1x6 - 405lbs
Bent rows - 1x10 - 225lbs, 1x6 - 315lbs
T-bar rows - 1x10 - 3 plates, 1x 10 - 4 plates
Dumbbell rows on Incline bench - 2x10 - 55lbs
Pull downs to front - 1x12 - 150lbs
Pull downs behind the neck - 1x12 - 120lbs
Close grip pull downs - 1x12 - 150lbs
Seated rows - 1x10 - 150lbs, 1x10 - 100lbs
A little explanation: I train triceps and biceps twice a week. So on the workouts I do on Monday and Tuesday for my triceps and biceps will focus more on controlling the movement and getting the negative while on Fridays I will blast them with heavy weights.
Cable curls - 1x12 - 110lbs, 1x12 - 120lbs
Two arm cable curls - 2x10 - 50lbs
Machine preacher curls - 2x12 - 90lbs, 1x12 - 50lbs
I know I sound like a broken record player but I can honestly say my strength seems to go up each week with no plateau in sight. Since I have begun this cycle I have had to retire a few shirts from my closet and I have a few more if things continue on this path.
Last week I cut my calories back by 500-1000 cals a day, I just felt I needed a break from all the eating but over the next 3 weeks I will eat like a mad man to help maximize my gains. Before I go I must say something about recovery while on this cycle. Usually after my leg workout I am sore for 3-4 days but since I have been on this stack I have never been sore in my legs more than 1 day to 1 ½ days tops. That speaks volumes about these products because this is the first time in my life my leg recovery has dropped.
