  • 1-14-11 Triceps and Biceps

    SUper light maintence session. Arms still down to 18 1/4 cold (down 3/4 an inch), just wanted to get some blood in there. WIll probably stay out of the gym til monday. Basically taking this week off.

    Got some results from my MRI full spinal scan, by phone. Will meet with doc on tuesday. Spinal injections to reduce inflammation was the suggestion so far.

    Have some new ruptured disks or atleast ones I never got scanned before, probably new since ive been back from my old injuries, 2 year lay off in 2004.

    Just know how to adapt better and deal with shit now. It was suggested that the numbness in my hands, legs body is being caused by these new ruptures. One in cervical neck area, one in T-7 (the other one in the thoracic seems to have healed), another one in lumbar region. I was told these are small bulges and that some of them are putting pressure on the spinal chord to cause this. Im still not sure if its that or the elbow issues but Id think likely its the spinal problem causing the numbness. The shots may reduce the inflammation. We will see

    • 1-17-11 Monday Chest, Shoulders,Rear Delts and Abs

      Back to my old gym today for chest. Always get the best workouts here since ive been back. Better equipment (for my purposes) and much better lighting, mirrors. Could see I didnt lose as much size as I thought. Been several months since I trained there. Its far so if I go back it would only be maybe twice a week.

      More variety today, still lighter maintenance. Got that cramping in the upper chest and front delts though again, which means the training is getting better again. Still a shadow of the old routine but whatever works for now:

      (212 lbs after previous nights meals, stayed up)

      Flat Bench Press: (Reps varied from 3/4 to full)

      135x20 warm
      135x20 warm
      225x29 (Close to full reps, no spotters present, so high up on bench, not best position)
      275x14 (Same, No spotter for lift off)
      315x6 (3/4 reps til end, spotter for this)
      315x3 (Spotter for this, full reps. Lower back strained during set)
      225x19 3/4 ( No spotter full reps)
      225x12 (same)
      225x7 (Slow)

      Incline Smith Machine Press: (3/4 reps til end unless noted)

      225x24
      275x8
      275x8
      225x9 (Full reps. Neck strained on this set locking out)

      Hammer Strength Incline Press: (3/4 reps mainly)

      270x12
      270x13
      360x5
      270x8
      270x10
      270x8 1/2 (Full reps this set)

      Hammer Strength Wide Chest Press: (Full reps)

      270x6
      270x5 1/2
      270x6 1/2

      Machine Flies (seated): (Alot of friction on machine due to not being oiled well, holding contractions for several seconds)

      210x11
      270x7
      305x5 (stack)

      Shoulder Press Machine (pin loaded):

      296x20 (stack)
      296x21
      296x23

      Reverse Machine Flies: (Alot of strain in back by this point, not too many sets)

      132x15
      154x15
      176x15
      196x11

      Dumbbell Laterals:

      70x18
      60x21
      80x15
      50x20
      80x15
      90x12
      65x20
      70x15 + 2 front raises
      80x12
      45x20 +5 front raises
      55x20

      Standing Machine Laterals (pin loaded):

      60x15
      80x10
      100x10 (stack)

      Holding contractions at top on most reps

          Appreciate that shit

          The main limitation is my knees and shins, similiar to back training, bicep tendons or shoulder sockets being the weak links. So try not to go as heavy as in the past and just keep the reps high. Alot of times its been every other week hitting legs too. Sometimes weekly fucks my knees, shins so just depends

          • looks like your slowly getting back in the groove...got the high volume going on and I assume overtime you'll be able to increase the weight.

            i gotta say that your arm sessions have been a big ass inspiration to me and I think the high volume combined with dropsets, short rests and giant sets have really helped my arms blow up

              It was a good change. Mixing biceps and triceps together with no rest dropsets, supersets, etc. Before I was just going super heavy for more straight sets, and starting with either biceps or triceps. Sometimes I was dedicating a day to just bicep or tricep work. Ive been using the dropsets for triceps for a while but mixing with biceps is the best pump ive gotten as far as that goes.

              I havemt really gained any new arm size by training this way, and right now they are still down from where they were, but I think working with this method and increasing intensity with less rest is a good method for now. Means I dont have to go as heavy and less injuries most likely. Growth is always slow for me anyway, and especially now at this point, without any chemical assistance.

              I cant go to heavy on triceps right now anyway, for straight sets, elbows are still messed up

                    I was getting 40 when I was in the lower 200's and also doing them weighted at one point. They are a good warm up for the heavier shit and get a real good stretch and contraction with them. Try to hold some of the reps at the top.

                              Pumping all that blood and going lighter seems to be bringing the size back. This morning woke up and arms were about 1/4 inch larger. Back to 18 1/2 but dont know if it will last. Havent hit that since my last little lay off. They were around 19 cold before but good to see some size come back. Ive been eating like absolute shit. Meaning not nearly enough food. some days 60 protein, rarely breaking 200, lower calories. My appetite has been fucked, been feeling toxic. Similiar to when I was on the drol. My kidneys and liver might just need a break from heavy supps, AAS, etc for a while. All I ate yesterday was a pizza for the whole day. Which would usually be one meal.

                              KEEP KILLIN THAT SHIT !!
