^^ I commented on that today.
^ Yeah hear that mate. My knees are just about fucked, but i still want to squat 600lb in the next 12 months lol.
Cool log, I'm not into all the DC stuff etc but still recognise a big effort when i see it, keep up the good work.
I never realised you were an Aussie as well. So you know "Trap Freak" oh I mean Pickle, feel free to spread the dirt, he seems to perfect in a non homo way.

^^^^^ cheers pumba, yeah me and pickle went to uni together, we used to lift in the same gym for like 3 years, he was a trap monster, he has those traps like arnie, pickle was the guy i looked up to until i surpased him hahahaha, nah he stopped training, so i caught up to him, he can still out sqaut me but...what a fucker.....
ok this cruize is so boring, im really fucking bored, i want to train heavy....oh shit thats why you go on cruises because they make you miss the iron you love....having this week long of easy sessions has left me refreshed and really ansy to train hard again, cant wait....im so bored and im making to many entries into my own log, its quite sad...maybe i should do a rant segment...yeah everybody loves rants
RANT ABOUT ECONOMIC THEORY AND ITS INNAPROPRIATE APPLICATION TO MASS GAIN THEORY......what an academic start, a pity thats where the academia will end....
2 GUYS IN MY GYM constantly get on my nerve, there not bad guys and they train hard, but they seem to be ill informed about the basics of gain mass theory (my fancy word for hypertrophy promoting activites). anyways these dudes piss me off basically because, for a number of weeks, they seem to be coming into the gym and hopping onto the smith machine or precious sqaut rack mere seconds before i need to use it....frankly its not a big deal...but these fuckers take so long...for example...if they get to the squat rack they proceed to load up a token 50-60 kgs and do a set, then because that wasnt enough, they strip about 20 kgs and do another set...hardcore...the fun doesnt end here...B1 leaves the sqaut rack and does bodyweight sqauts lol, while B2 loads up the weight and follows the protocol of B1, then the both of them repeat the process 4 times each, so thats 8 sets of double drops i have to sit around getting cold for.....draining...atleast they apologise at the end for wasting my time...i really should alert them to the fact they are wasting theirs...
...this sort of shit goes on with a different lift for a few weeks..and then i hear them talking and B1 mentions the 100 grams of weight he puts on last week bwahaha omg, it was so funny like 100 grams is measurable or worth mentioning...i hate sounding like a cunt but these dudes really have missed the boat, thinknigh that doing psyco amounts of sets and drops will give them results...they also use the same weight week in week out, obviously not making that size/ strength connection.....atleast their polite and dedicated but really...and well ive changed my noob policy in the gym from total intervention to mind my own fucking business and too shut up and sqaut...but i so badly want to give them advice, but we all know its like religion people believe what they want no matter how irrational and illogical it is, and trying to tell them anything different just makes them think your an asshole...actually i am an asshole but i try to keep it on the inside.
i personally dont believe in massive volume, a few tough sets working up to a heavy weight for 8 reps or so on a tough lift, plus some good food is all you need to grow fast, but these guys just have no idea...im not quite sure of their goals but they seem to talk about trying to put on size, and they are definatley going about it the wrong way, i think drop sets are pretty pointless, maybe once in awhile at most, but these guys do it every set and 3 times at that....econmic theory....more is better....more weight over a rep range over time is better.....but week ass set, drop, then drop again, same pussy ass weight week in week out = no progression + plus ridiculous inroads into recovery and a waste of calories....
...well i changed my training scedule and i rarely see them, yay for me.....my next rant will be about atg squats and the dumbell exercise equvilents
^^ It's a good policy to not bother with noobs in the the gym. They haven't learnt enough to know what they don't know. Lol at the 100g, that's the difference in leaving your wallet in your pocket when you weigh.
One thing though; is the smith imperative to your DC training? I.e. is it mainly machine based stuff. Because I would steer clear of using a smith machine.
^^^ i dont like to use it, but because im doing the dc pattern of one set, 15 breaths, another set, 15 breaths and then one final set...i dont want to bother someone and make them spot me for that long...so i just use exercises where i dont need a spotter....i no i shouldnt use it but im kinda forced to by a lack of option hey...i have had problems with smith machines in the past but i find if im sensible and postion it right, i minimise problems....because dc needs three exercise per bodypart to cycle through i usually have to throw the smith in their for chest and tricep exercise and the occasional leg exercise....
ohh yeah it tuesday, only a matter of ours before my blast begins, im going punish fuck some iron today and treat my log book like the cheap little 2 dollar hooker it is, pow.....actually i might just chill and ease in, its sqaut day, dont wanna fuck up before ive started.....
.....on that note 'LIVE TO WIIIIIIINNNNN, TILL YOU DIEEEEEE, TO LIGHT GOES IN YOUR EYES,........LIVE TO WIIINNNNN, TAKE IT ALLLLLL, JUST KEEP FIGHTING TO YOU FALLL' ..................live to win by paul stanley...download it and study the meaning of life children of iron

didnt complete widowmaker, didn't rest long enough and couldnt be fucked,note to self: neck the fuck up pussy.
i was pretty happy with todays session, it was the first session back after a resting period, so i equalled my all time sqaut, and did them with perfect form , lowering as deep as my legs would allow and then powered up strong just short of lock out, repeat.
ive decided to up my rep range on bicep exercises from 11-20 rest paused to 15-30, ive had no bicep improvement in some time, ive got 18.5 inch arms but, so iguess the rest of me has been catching up, but now the arms are looking small by comparison, so hopefully the higher reps will force me to focus on the contraction instead of the weights i lift, biceps are all about form and ive been slacken.
also got my uni 1st semester results, they were good, i managed to pass this feminism goes to the movies course it did for a laugh, which i thought i was mega going to fail, i failed the first assignment so in my exam i cut sick and told the markers what they want to hear.....jokes on them i was bull shitting...i rock...
^^^what do you mean about the cable curls, also doing sqauts after hammies is the best thing i ever did, it makes your quads do the work on the squats, i will ad 10 kgs to my sqaut this blast, thats the aim, maybe 20 kgs, whilst hitting the 6-10 rep range.
do you have a log pickledorf, you should get one and start training heavy again.
incline smith (11-15 rp, add about 20-30kgs to the weight its a heavy machine)
60kgs, 8,4,3 (15) new exercise
dumbell press (15-30 rp)
35kgs, 10,4,3 (17) pb
130lb, 10,2,3 equal pb, but improved first set total
pulldown (11-15 rp)
200lb, 11,3,3 pb
t-bar row (10-15 ss)
80kgs, 13 equal pb
all in all pretty good session, the smith inclines were good, kept them shoulders right back and got really good form, dumbell presses were good, got a pb. pushdown were ok, didnt get a pb as far as total reps but the first set improved by a rep, and it was a mad rep too lol. t-bars were pretty good, i got 14, but ididnt like the qaulity of tha last rep, so it doesnt count.
might post a fat lat spread pic in a few minutes, just gotta get the mrs off the phone so she can take it, and then she can cook the dinner, yeah!
awesome pics and i hadnt expected anything else either. good session going on in here...
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
