Yesterday’s workout (back, biceps and traps) was good, but not great. It was the first workout on this bulk that felt “forced”. I think the reason for that is two-fold. First of all, my body is in shock from the all-new workouts I’ve been doing this week. My legs are still quite sore from Monday’s workout, and my pecs and triceps are more sore than they’ve been in a long time. I also had a pretty busy and stressful day yesterday, and was feeling rather tired just before my workout. Once I got going with my training I felt pretty good, but by as the workout drew to a close I felt very gassed. Despite this, I fought through it and got it done!

I really wanted to deadlift, but I need to let my lower back have a few more weeks before I start hitting it again. Anyway, here’s the back/biceps/traps workout I’ll be doing for the next three weeks:

BACK/TRAPS
3 x 10-12 Hang cleans/power shrugs (supersets)
3 x 12 Bent-over barbell rows
3 x Failure/failure/failure wide-grip lat pulldowns (triple drop sets)

BICEPS
3 x 10-12 Machine preacher curls
3 x Failure/failure/failure/failure/failure “Down the rack” alt. DB curls (quintuple drop sets)
3 x Failure Bodyweight chin-ups (supinated grip)

Today I’ll be working my delts, traps and calves. I can’t believe that after today’s workout I only have three weeks left to go in this year’s bulk. The time has gone by so quickly!

Yesterday I mentioned that I was considering implementing a user “reputation” system on the forum. The purpose of the rep system is allow our members to provide positive feedback to other members whom they have found to be helpful. It is also my hope that people will become more active on the forum in an effort to increase their reputation score. The JSF forums are seeing near-record traffic right now, but the number of posts are down. I want to encourage lots of conversation and lively discussion! The reputation system does have the potential to be problematic, and so I have done what I can to address those issues in advance. I implemented the system yesterday, and would like to give it a trial run. You can learn all about the system (and how to opt out if you would rather not participate) in this thread. Regardless of if you are for this, against this or neutral/undecided, it’s very important that you let me know what you think. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy this new feature.

Please join me in welcoming Aram “Mastover” Hamparian aboard as an Official JSF Sponsor! I’ve placed the Official “Personal Training with Aram Hamparian” Review and Discussion thread in the Fat Loss forum. Feel free to drop in and ask any questions you have, or just say hello.
