  • As for me.... I've still been training hard as hell, just haven't felt like logging anything into my journal.

    Physique is starting to come along---its a wonder what you can look like once you've gotten rid of just 4-6 lbs of fat. I am on week 5 out of 8 of my carb-drop diet. The goal starting out was to lose about 1-1.5 lbs a week. Didnt want to drop anything crazy fast and lose muscle.

    So far I am down to about 198---started at 204---so 6 lbs in 5 weeks is exactly what i was going after. Definitely look better than 5 weeks ago.

    We (my training partner--twin brother) and I were doing mon, tues low carb. Wednesday high carb. thurs, fri low carb, and then sat high carb, and sunday low carb(30-40 grams). After about 3 weeks we switched it up and now do mon-fri low carb, and saturday-sunday high carb. We found that only going mon, tues low carb we werent at a quite keto level. 5 days straight of low carb seems to put us into more ketosis by the time we hit high carbs on saturday and sunday. have seen better improvements doing it that way. Besides, high carb on weekends works out great for going out to eat and what not.

    Ill try and post more upates in here. Its been an experiement nonetheless, but i've been happy with it. I think I look bigger at 198lbs than at 204.

      Yeah man it's open now and it's pretty sweet. I have no clue what's going on. I have to work 7:45a-12...making them big bucks now swiping BuckIDs at the RPAC. Hopefully it doesn't rain on everyone at the spring game.

        ahh...at the RPAC, nice. Great place to scope out the babes. I remember that 2nd floor cardio area being a gold mine of hot college chicks in tight clothes. those were the days.

        thanks man, pic was taken not quite 2 weeks ago. I dont really take a lot of pics, but I did take one a year ago and it is a huge difference.

            You're damn right it is...the old cardio loft! It's been sweet this quarter. They come in with less and less clothes now that it's warming up.

                * not really a fan of squatting on the smith, just wanted to see if they targeted the quads a little more

                    *not sure what happened here, 330 felt great, went down to 270 did 1 rep and felt like my tris were already tiring out. I got about 1/4 rep and couldnt go further, so then went down to 220, and then 150.



                    High grip pec deck (double drop)

                    100 x 10, 80 x 6, 60 x 7

                      • Awesome work in here man. I'm trying to do the same thing to my quads. I'm pretty happy, starting to get that split down the middle. The close stance squats on the smith are great. I used to do them a lot for cycling since your feet are about the same distance apart as when they're clipped into the pedals. Keep up the good work man!!!

                          ya, the other I guess positive thing about doing narrow squats, squats in general on a smith is that you can slightly move your feet more in front or behind your body without fear of dropping the bar. I do the same thing on leg presses--adjusting my feet either higher or lower on the platform for each set.

                            Delts/Hamstrings


                            DB Upright rows (drop)
                            45/arm x 10, 35 x 6, 25 x 8

                            Arnold press (last set drop)
                            65 x 8
                            60 x 9, 45 x 7

                            DB side laterals (drop)
                            30/arm x 10, 25 x 8, 20 x 6

                            Incline bench side laterals
                            20/arm x 10

                            *We tend to not do much direct medial(front) delt work on shoulder day because of the amount of incline work we do on chest day


                            Smith machine Stiff-leg DL's / [supersetted with] lying leg curls

                            *365 x 12 / 80 x 9
                            365 x 14 / 80 x 8
                            365 x 11 / 70 x 8

                            *365-- on the smith, more accurately we had 160 lbs on each side of the bar

                            We had to have a brief ham workout because we both were running on short time this morning. In retrospect, I enjoyed supersetting the 2 hams exercises.
