All-Out 8-Week Mass Attack. No Holds Barred.
Day # 45 of 56 - 03-04-02
After taking yesterday off I was really geared up for today's workout. I slept really good, woke up rested and pumped to blast my back today. So at 4:35 I was off to the gym.
I did a triset for calves today. I did leg press toe raises, seated raises and donkey raises: 3 sets of 15-20 reps for each set. This really pounded my calves especially since I don't do many giant sets for them.
After warming up all the muscles that will come into play when doing back, I did 2 sets of 10 reps on the chin up bar to really get the blood going through the back.
Dead lifts - 1x10 - 135lbs, 1x6 - 225lbs, 1x6 - 315lbs, 1x6 - 425lbs
Bent rows - 1x10 - 225lbs, 1x6 - 315lbs, 1x6 - 335lbs, 1x12 - 135lbs (on this last set I held each contraction for 2-3 seconds and did a really long negative)
Incline dumbbell row - 2x10 - 65lbs
T-bar rows - 1x10 - 3 plates, 1x10 - 4 plates, 1x10 - 2 plates
Pull downs to the front - 1x10 - 110lbs, 1x10 - 150lbs
Pull downs behind the neck - 1x10 - 110lbs, 1x10 - 120lbs
Close grip pull downs - 1x10 - 150lbs
Seated rows - 1x10 - 120lbs, 1x10 - 130lbs
For biceps I did a giant set with barbell curls, preacher curls and one arm cable curls.
Barbell curls - 2x10 - 115lbs
Preacher curls - 2x10 - 70lbs
Cable curls - 1x10 - 40lbs, 1x10 - 50lbs
I finished up my biceps with machine preacher curls - 1x10 - 80lbs, 1x10 - 90lbs
It felt good to really nail my back and biceps today. Even though I am off the Anabol-X I still feel like I am getting stronger with every workout.
I am in the late stages of the cycle and with the increase in lean mass and especially strength I can wait to give these products another try. Even though I haven't been on a true bulking diet, just more of maintenance style diet, I have still experienced some really good gains.
I am anxious to take my stats again in the next couple of weeks. One thing that I must point out is since week 3 off this cycle I have had to remove at least one shirt from my wardrobe because it is now too small, always a good sign of growth.
