    Appreciate that sht!! Yea my upper body tends to appear pretty lean. Im always bulking, never trying to lean, but Ive added fiber, stimulants (for energy in the gym) and 15 mins cardio on training days (low intensity). These things probably contribute to the leanness, or atleast the appearence. Abdominals are not that lean.

    Even before I used fiber,stims frequently and cardio, I always stayed fairly lean. Especially considering all the junk I ate at one time to get to my largest.

    I dont think Im too far off from my old size now, but some measurements are difficult to guage. Everytime I measure my back/chest circumference it comes up different. Pictures help though.

    Yea, Ive learned to work around injuries now. I dont take any lay offs unless Im really fucked. Theres a large variety of exercises to choose from, and all of them can be hit hard and heavy in time. I worked my way up to those heavy dumbbell raises, originally, as a way to avoid pressing movements for shoulders. At the time pressing movements put real bad stress on my upper spine (where my disks ruptured). In time I got these quite strong and heavy, and its been bringing up my delts. Now I do heavy pressing and laterals. Able to do most exercises again now. Though I still tweak things and only do what feels right.

    KILL THAT SHIT!!

    Great journal, WB. And "ouch" on the ruptured disks. I work around aches and pains but that's some serious injury you're working around. My younger brother had successful back surgery, but a friend of mine got totally screwed by his surgery. I go to the chiropractor regularly, but still have some issues.

    Anyway, keep killin it!

    Appreciate it. Yea I have a bunch of strains too. The ruptured disks dont bother me as much now. Now its the hernia tinges, elbows, shoulders, bicep strain and things like that , that Im working more around. It took a while for that to be the case though. I avoided surgery and just rehabbed myself. Doctors and therapists basically all told me I was fucked , never to lift again ,etc. Especially cuz I couldnt find information on it, in regards to lifting weights, since it is rare to rupture the upper disks between the blades.

    KEEP KILLIN THAT SHIT!!

    man, you do a ton of volume! I was looking back at one of your chest days... 27 sets!
    shows there is more than 1 way to skin a cat I guess.
    I worked up to 1 working set on flat bench
    then worked up to 1 working set of overheads
    then 1 working set of inc HS presses
    My big pressing day comprised of only 3 working sets today!
    You ever try the lower volume thing?

    ThanX brother! KILLIN EM AND GRILLIN EM!! I cant say Ive ever tried much low volume training. Ive always had such a bitch of a time gaining any kind of size or strength that it seems I really have to GRIND THAT SHIT into the core of the earth, tear myself apart to get any type of result. Especially the more Ive advanced. Alot of people use this fucking hardgainer bullshit excuse. I was 105lbs when I started. Took super fucking long, but it can be done. No fucking excuses to get to fucking work, embrace the brutality. Dont leave feelin like you couldve KILLED THAT SHIT more. These have always been the ideas that I train by.

    Ive seen your journal and obviously the low volume shit has been working for you. Have you ever tried high volume? Might change up your adaption and kick that shit into overdrive.TRAIN OR FUCKIN DIE!!

    1-29-09 Chest,Shoulders,Abs. (15 mins cardio)

    Please do not laugh at the following disgraceful routine below. You laugh, you die. My fucking brain is very sensitive to sound right now. You do not want to fucking cross that line.

    Hit some all time PR's today, and one other post injury PR. Four PR's. So it was a good day overall. I did 5x5 with 300, completed it, but did it my way. I did that shit after 4 sets to failure, and also I counted it because it was 25 reps within 5 sets, but not 5 reps per set. Good enough for me. So onto 305 next week. Closing in on 40 rep with 225 and 20 with 275. Whats been working for me is to blast the shit out piston like, short of lockout for 34 reps, then lockout the last 4. So next time Ill try and hit 35 or more before locking em out. Similiar tactic with 275. With 300 I did some of them short of lockout as well when I hit 7. The rest of the sets were basically full reps:

    (193lbs after some water)

    Flat Bench Press:

    135x20
    225x38 (2 rep PR. All-time)

    315x4

    5X5 Routine: (Completed my way. 25 reps within 5 sets. Not done fresh)

    300x7 (1 rep PR. Post injury only)
    300x7
    300x4
    300x4
    300x3

    __________

    225x18
    185x47

    Incline Hammer Strength Press:

    270x18 1/2
    360x3

    Pin Loaded Shoulder Press:

    295x37
    295x15
    295x13

    Dumbbell Shoulder Presses:

    1-30-09 Triceps and abs (15 mins cardio)

    A few PR's. Didnt go full extention on all the reps with pressdowns, to keep strain off the left elbow, but very close and squeezed a few out full extention. Reason for lack of variety and lack of my favorite exercise for triceps, skull crushers is due to elbow strain and also missing equipment from the gym. No cambered bar for pressdowns, just V-bar, small straight and rope. Only v-bar and cambered dont fuck with my wrists.

    Was going to hit biceps as well but they are still strained from other training so avoided it for now. :

    (190lbs)

    Alternating Dumbbell Curls: 35x15 (warm up then decided against it)

    V-Bar Pressdowns:

    90x15
    130x15
    170x15 (no rest on first three sets)
    --------
    200x35 (PR. Stack)
    245x12 (45 pinned to stack)
    245x16 (PR)
    245x10
    245x9
    200x16

    Pin Loaded Dip Machine:

    165x15
    265x15
    265x20

    Four sets of heavy kneeling rope crunches up to 225 for 10 reps, other sets 15-25 rep.

    15 mins cardio

    KILL THAT SHIT!!

    Good for you deciding not to train. For some of us, thats the hardest choice!
    Turn the other cheek and I'll break your fucking chin.

    Yea I used to be really fuckin stubborn. Didnt give a fuck about pain signals and shit. Ruptured two disks just by ignoring the pain and taking scorching hot showers. That set me back over four years though. So Ive learned to adapt. Shit is mostly adaption these days and not fully planned. Very instinctual.

    KILL THAT SHIT!!
