Thought I would drop by the ol' log here. Things went well this week, outside of another cold, having a kid go to daycare is a bacterial nightmare! Had a good back workout today, I have been trying some old Vince Gironda methods lately and I tell you what, they work. 8 sets of 8 reps taking only 30 seconds between sets and using super strict form does not allow you to go heavy but it really fatigues and pumps the intended muscle. Did that for seated cable rows, pulldowns and then pullups - did not get all the reps on the pullups, too much blood. After that I did 4 sets of 8 reps with 20 second breaks for a Gironda db curl variation which I can't quickly explain, drag curls, and preacher curls. My biceps were fried after all that. That workout took 30 minutes because of the short rest, short and intense is all I can say. I came back in the afternoon (that was all early morning before work) and deadlifted and did some heavy barbell rows, all I had intended to do was deadlift because I was too wasted in the morning and I hate deadlifting in the morning, but as I unloaded the bar I though some rows were in order. Went up for a triple at 475 on the deads and a 225x6, 235x6, 245x6+225x5 on the rows, it all felt good but I could tell I had done all that lat work in the morning, not to mention the biceps being a bit more tired than usual. I am going to keep using some of Vince's stuff, I like it and it all makes sense - I am after all trying to be a bodybuilder, not a weightlifter. His nutrition stuff is also very interesting and I am trying some of that out along with some Steve Michalik stuff out of his book Atomic Fitness - great book, best bodybuilding book I have ever read hands down - basically all stuff Vince Gironda advocated 30+ years ago, but still a great read.
