    ^^ Actually it is similar in vein to the eternal 5x5 scheme. The idea is to use a weight repeatedly so that your total work sets are comprised of essentially a max. Weightlifters use this for gaining strength and hypertrophy in a 10 sets of 3 reps scheme. It allows a great volume at high % of max.

    Working up to a peak is cummulative fatigue (unless done slightly differently from the norm, such that you warm-up and then hit a max before running down to a drop set), and I'm not a big fan.

    doesn't necessarily have to be 10 sets of 3, 8x3, 8x4. I've just cut back my last couple sessions due to 1.) How strong I've felt 2.) how well my shoulder felt.

    I'll crank it back up shortly

    always a pleasure Tim


    The biggest difference between you and me is you're you, and I'm me. I always win. Sorry bro.

    awesome session there tweak! and looking good in those pics too, bicep have a nice peak and ur shoulders looks nice and defined, keep growing buddy


    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.

    Nice work my friend. Sessions seem to be working already. I expect you to notice a difference with the creatine.

    Death by volume, yet again

    What do you consume pre-workout, Tweak? A gallon of gatorade? Small babies? Human misery? Whatever it is, your endurance is unreal.

    BB curls and rows were excellent standouts. Let us know how the creatine load/use feels, as it's glaringly apparent that this new routine is paying off just on its own.

    Excellent pics, by the way


    Stand or fall, but choose.

    nice workout, Amazing job with the db rows. How's the shoulder feeling this session? Nice job on the bench, ur close grip isnt bad either, as the weeks go on, both will improve greatly, so dont feel down about the close grip, close grip is a tough exercise, im not great at close grip benching myself. Those seated side laterals will sure make ur shoulders grow, pics look good too, great peak on the bicep, chest is getting bigger, and big shoulders

    Here it is, Lower Body Session

    Calves
    - Hammer Strength Standing Calve Raises
    -- 90x25
    -- 180x15
    -- 180x15
    -- 180x15 superset w/ Donkey Calve Raises 260x15

    Giant Sets -
    1. Hammer Strength Calve Raises
    2. Donkey Calve Raises
    3. Paramount Squat Thing Calve Raise
    4. Toe Raises

    Set 1:
    180x15
    260x15
    45x15
    20 Toe Raises

    Set 2:
    180x15
    260x15
    45x15
    20 Toe Raises

    Front Squats Olympic Style - Working on wrist flexibility, used light weight the entire time.
    Bar x6
    55x6
    40kg x6
    40kg x6
    40kg x6
    40kg x6 <--- good weight for my wrists, should easily go heavier next week.

    Deadlifts - got a little more serious this week opposed to last week where I took it easy to see how my back could handle it. Went well.
    60kg x3
    90kg x3
    110kg x3
    120kg x3
    140kg x1 <-- not bad I suppose

    Deadlift Note: next week will be the true beginning of some deadlift work, I'll be doing heavier weight for singles, doubles, and triples, ranging from 8-10 sets

    Lying Leg Curl
    130x10
    130x10
    130x10
    130x10

    Decline Abdominal Crunches
    Me x15
    Me+45 x15
    Me+45 x15

    Aftermath: I have two videos of myself, one doing the OL Front Squats to check my form, my heels were slightly coming up so I immediately fixed it. Camera does come in quite handy for that.
    Also a video of me doing deadlifts, I think its the 120kg x3, I'll also post that later. Form was in check with that, but I think I may be using more lower back then drive from the hammies. I'll wait for your guys opinions.

    A few goals I'm going to set for myself when it comes to Deadlifts.

    Previous Personal Best = 355x3 @ 200lbs, I'm hoping to get 355x3 while staying under 175-185lbs. I weigh 159 right now.

    I'm also hoping to join the 400lbs club while staying under the weight of 175-180, that would easily shatter my old PB with weight and pound for pound strength.

    Honestly, I'd love to stay under 170 for each of those goals, but lets be a bit realistic shall we?

    props to going through the process of learning how to hold the front squat olympic style. I could never master it but im sure it will reap benefits for me if i did. Im at work so I cant watch your videos... Working on a sunday on my birthday 9-5 oh the humanity. But ill definately check them when i get home.

    ANy more calf pics?

    P.s I have no problem what-so-ever in what you messaged me about i actually find it quite funny and I would laugh if you did it more.

    lol actually I have some more of Katy's calves I'll post tonight or tomorrow along with the videos

    She's been dieting so they keep getting more and more detailed, put most guys calves to shame

    working on your birthday, thats a shame. You should come over for your present

    thanks for your comments Pickle, I greatly appreciate you stopping by in here.

    Fine work Clinton. 8-10 sets of deads. Rather you than me. And that was a very respectable start off this last session. Good luck with your goals.
