For last night’s workout (pecs), I changed from an all-dumbbell workout to an all-barbell workout (except for my finishing exercise, which is always cable crossover work). This is a pretty basic chest workout, but it gets results. I realize that some feel the decline bench press is not needed, but I really do feel that it has helped me, so I do it. Here’s the chest workout I did last night, and what I will be doing for the next three weeks:

4 x 12 Barbell Bench Press
4 x 12 Barbell Incline Press
4 x 12 Barbell Decline Press
4 x “Burnout” Cable Crossover (low position)

I wasn’t exactly sure how much weight I could handle, so for a starting point I went back to last year’s bulking workout logs and then added 20 pounds to each exercise (except cable crossover) over the heaviest weight I used last year. I used strict form, and each rep was very controlled. I was amazed at how light the weight felt. I had no problem doing 12/12/12/12 for every exercise. I also added 5 pounds to my cable crossover, setting another personal record. I’ll be adding 10 more pounds to every exercise next week. I’m definitely a lot stronger now than I was last year!

My long-awaited Titan T1 review was posted on Monday. I hope you enjoy it!

Our friends over at AtLarge Nutrition are running a great special on Opticen for a very limited-time. Chris of AtLarge has this to say about Opticen and the sale:

“Have you tried the best meal replacement/gainer protein product on the market? What, no? Why not? Don’t you know that Opticen is one of the very few MRP/gainer products to utilize a blend of 3 kinds of whey (isolate, hydrolyzed, and concentrate), caseinates, and egg albumin? This blend optimizes your net retention of ingested protein. You simply cannot get a better protein product and when you combine it with quality carbohydrates and a myriad of vitamins and minerals you have one of the best supplements available today.

Did I mention it has special ingredients to give you that satisfying feeling of fullness you usually only get from foods?

Ok, ok, you are convinced but your wallet is feeling a bit light, right? No worries, we can help with that as well…

For a very limited time you can purchase Opticen, the #1 MRP/Gainer protein on the market, for the incredibly low price of $26.95 (4.6 LBS of powder)! That is $9.00 off our regular price!

You won’t find a better deal! Don’t wait, buy now!”
