New chest workout; New PR; 2008 is over – will you get in shape in 2009?

Yesterday’s workout – my final workout of 2008 – rocked! Here’s the new chest and triceps workout I did yesterday, and what I’ll be doing for the final four weeks of my bulk: CHEST – 3 x 10-12 Flat bench press – 3 x 10-12 Incline bench press – 2 x failure/failure/failure Incline dumbbell flyes (triple drop sets) – 1 x failure Chest dips (burnout set) TRICEPS – 3 x 10-12 Close-grip bench press –… [Read more]

Leg workout; New Year’s eve drinking?

As I mentioned yesterday, the workouts I’ll be doing for the final four weeks of my 2008 bulk will have less volume than most of the workouts I’ve been doing over the previous 13 weeks, but will be performed with even more intensity. Yesterday’s leg workout was relatively brief (less than 40 minutes from start to finish), but very intense and very challenging. Here’s the workout: – 3 x 8-10 Squats – 3 x 12-15… [Read more]

Overtime; Cutting plans; Reminders.

I’m in overtime now: it’s week 14 of my planned 13-week bulk. I’m going to work as hard as I can to make the extra four weeks I’ve added to my 2008 bulk extremely productive. This week I’ll be changing all my workouts around, and these are the workouts I’ll be using until the end of my bulk. I’ll be posting the new workouts all this week. These workouts will have less volume than most… [Read more]

Measurement Sunday!

It’s time for my usual Sunday tape measurements and body fat reading. My scale weight this morning is 214.4 pounds. That’s just a .4 pound gain over the past week, but you may recall that for some reason last Sunday I was holding about 2 pounds of water for some odd reason. So that’s a 3 pound gain in two weeks, which is right on my average. It all evens out. My total scale weight… [Read more]

Working out this morning.

I decided to take yesterday off from training, and pushed my usual Friday workout (delt/traps/calves) off until today. I’m glad that I did that, as we had family over and had a really fun day hanging out together. I think I’m going to do my workout this morning instead of my usual afternoon workout time so that I can have the rest of the day cleared to do whatever I want to do. I’ve lost… [Read more]

Lots of fun yesterday; New picture/videos; Today’s workout.

We had a lot of fun yesterday! I ate a lot, but I didn’t go crazy. I never felt overstuffed or uncomfortable. As expected, however, I am holding a couple pounds of water this morning. We didn’t really take many pictures yesterday. We took some pictures and video of the dogs early in the day, but then the camera was placed aside and we just sort of forgot about it. I put a Christmas video… [Read more]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Today should be a lot of fun. This morning after breakfast (and we open presents, of course) I’ll be doing my back and biceps workout. I normally don’t workout this early in the day, but we’ve got family coming over around noon and I want to have the workout done and out of the way before they get here. No excuses! As for my diet, today is one of only two free days… [Read more]

Incredible strength gains; Might try a bench 1RM.

Yesterday I worked my chest and triceps, and I performed the workout as if it was the final chest/triceps workout in my bulk. I added weight to every exercise, but damned if I could tell: I equaled or surpassed last week’s reps. Right now I’m over 20 pounds lighter than I was at the end of my 2006 bulk, but I’m stronger now than I was back then on a significant number of lifts. Speaking… [Read more]

Reputation System poll; Yesterday’s leg workout – wow.

A couple of weeks ago I implemented a new feature on the forum: the User Reputation System. Now that it has been running for a couple of weeks, I want the JSF community to decide if we should keep this new feature. Personally I like it, and I think it’s added to our community. This is a simple YES or NO poll. The poll will run for about a week, and in the end majority… [Read more]

$2,000 steroid challenge; AtLarge 15% off sale!

Ah, it wouldn’t really be a bulk without the usual flood of steroid accusations! The “steroid” emails started trickling in around six or seven weeks ago, and now I’m getting them on a fairly regular basis. This is nothing new: every year since 2003 (when I looked liked I’d just escaped from a prison camp), I’ve been accused of using steroids or other illegal performance enhancing drugs. Unfortunately steroid use is very common in today’s… [Read more]
