      • Just a few pics to show some current progress

        Havent taken any since ive been back from the 10 month break.

        Difficult as hell to get stable shots with this camera as most come out blurry or mis aimed. Cant flex the camera arm fully while hitting the button on camera either, so they are limited

        Around 233 lbs, 54 3/4 chest cold, 19 1/4 arm cold.

        By no means lean. Want to continue adding more muscle and overall mass for a while though, before leaning and cleaning off all the excess fat. Would like to break 20 inches on the arms soon, since its getting close again, as well as some other lifts and size records

        I may have some progress pictures taken later in the year when Ive gained some significant new size. Most of it now is muscle memory, but the chest/back measurement is almost 2 inches bigger than before. Arms a 1/4 inch smaller for now.

        • About to hit some arms. Im thinking more of a lighter pump session for growth, with some heavier sets thrown in as usual. Maybe some 80 lb db curls and 300 lb pressdowns, but undecided as of yet.


          I was thinking of trying a method that uses 3 types of failure consecutively. First failure doing the movement normally, then failure holding the weight (with more weight added), then with further more weight added doing slow negatives. Not sure which exercise id implement it with but it sounds like a good way to tear shit up.

          • Arms


            Light and low volume today. Callus tore open in hand. Used a paper towel around the grips but still some slippage.

            The standing cable curls pumped the shit out of biceps. First time I did those in a long time and the tension was very good.

            This was supposed to be a lighter week anyway, so it worked out.

            Next up will be some chest most likely but a lighter session. Then the following week I may go for some all time records or current records on the incline hammer strength press and possibly nautilus overhead press. Though its really about growth and longetivity for me this time around, being so close to some new size numbers. Growth is the main focus currently

            Some numbers Ill aim for are 450x18 +, 500x10+, 540x5+ possibly on hammer strength incline and Nautilus overhead 540x10 + , 630 for 2+,etc. All potential targets but well see which ones feel right when I train. I may be close to matching my old numbers or hitting a new record or two. Hard to say until I hit the weight

                Appreciate that shit brother

                Good to see you are still around. KILLING that shit?

                Its good to be back despite all the pain and numbness. I feel better in my natural environment (KILLING THAT SHIT). Im going to try to keep shit rolling longer this time. Hopefully cycling heavy and lighter days and keeping an eye on my shit will yeild slower and long term results. The initial muscle memory has come back very quick in the last few months (10 month break). My chest/back size is at its largest now and arms are only 1/4 inch down from the biggest measurement (19 1/2). So Im in a prime position now to make new gains.

                KEEP KILLIN THAT SHIT yourself !!

                  • About to hit my light chest and shoulder session. I am considering working with the 120's today on the incline dumbbell press. Ill see how shit feels though. Ill likely start with the 80s and 100s to failure. Dumbbells presses fatigue pretty quick for me, for whatever reason. Wrist stability and getting them into position wastes the most energy for me. I have to constantly readjust mid press because they press on my hands and cause them to start locking or cramping up. I also never did much dumbbell pressing for chest so I was never too efficient with them. For shoulder presses ive done 100 for around 20 and 120s for 5, no spotters, but getting them up for me is always the main issue.


                    I hit 115s for 10 my last light day, so I may try 120 and see. If I get them into position without my wrist going out, then Im good.


                    Main focus will be the contractions and tearing the muscle up today. Dumbbells are best on my joints, aside from maybe the bottom position in the beginning, so thats why I use them now instead of barbells. Still have to get more efficient with kicking them up into position and balance. Havent decided yet if I should grip them on the ends of the handle or in the middle, so theres still some experimentation with my hands cramping up.


                    Next chest session will likely be the heavy machine work for shoulders and chest.

                    • Chest and delts


                      Light and low volume session today. Light headed today, energy not good but grinded through. I was two or three pounds lighter today, possibly because i forgot to take creatine since saturday. My strength was still way up with the dumbbell presses since last session. Im waiting for my shipment of creatine to come in, as I only have one serving left.

                      A few possible PRs with incline dumbbell presses. Mostly because I rarely do these and Im adapting to the movement with 100 lb plus dumbbells. The length and throwing them up is always where I waste the most energy. As shown with the 115 lb finisher. As ive adjusted to being back training from the 10 month break and doing dumbbells as first movement, the strength is coming up very quick. An 18 rep increase from the last time I did the 80 lbs dumbbells (from 47 to 65 reps), 8 rep increase on 100s (22 to 30 rep), Also hitting 110s for the same amount of reps that i hit the 100s for last time I did these (22, not fresh), and fucking with the 125s for 8 reps after the pre exhaustion. Muscle endurance was good. I could have done many sets of the dumbbell presses without losing reps. I was actually gaining reps on my second set of 110 lb where I hit 22 reps. Its more positioning and adjustment for me.

                      If I dont take myself out within the next 1 or 2 years then most of these numbers should be 20 to 30 reps higher, easily. Even on my light days I always push progressive resistance with pressing. When I hit a number I dont except anything less the next time. With back and legs I dont do that because I will tear the tendons at this stage. The muscle is way stronger than the tendons with those exercises.

                      I probably wont do any true maxing with chest, but I will pyramid up to failure and still break new records as long as possible. The goal now is really size. Thats why I cycled in this light session. Next time I will possibly try for 450x18-20 on hammerstrength incline, 540x5-10, 500x10-15. Im not sure yet where my strength will be next week but its been coming up rapidly since Ive been back. Even without my weight changing much the last few weeks. Shoulders felt a little inflamed toward end. I will most likely hit a heavy chest session by next week though, but will see how shit feels. The 125s are the max I have available at this gym but I will work on hitting high reps with them once I start to adapt to getting them into position. Its better I dont have access to 150s and up now anyway, because then Id get wreckless on this light day.

                      230 lbs before meals

                      125x8 (See video. Cant say if this is PR but have done 130s long ago for flies, never did much dumbbell pressing for chest)
                      110x20
                      110x22 (Strength actually increasing rather than tiring out. Possible PR. See video)

                      ---------

                      Decided to give joints a break. Just enough for some new growth and strength today
