Prof X and others–The man made a bet. It’s not like he’s a 140 lb guy that just wants to see his abs. I don’t get that vibe from him. I know in light of the past weeks and months it is hard to keep patience with all these “fight clubbers” around and the changes in the site and all.
I agree with you guys 100% on that, and I want to kill them all myself as well. But really, cut him some slack. He’s about 50lbs heavier than all the other cutters anyway. It’s just a short term bet, and I think we should help him win it. It’s not a long term life goal.
Yeah, I dont mean to come in here and act like every other newbie on all informative websites, its just that i want a tailored product so i dont spend damn near 10 weeks doing the wrong thing.
With that said,
Ive been working out with weights for about 2 years… Started out with machines for a good while then switched over to compound lifts.The difference between then and now is the fact that im taking the proper amount of protein currently. Im definately in the business of staying the course and getting big eventually. I just want to know how I can go about keeping my LBM and getting that 6. My friend is a jonny-bad-ass and I want him and everyone else to realize hes readily defeatable.
Typically i do blitz technique with my workouts.
Lat/Bicep on pullup bar- start at 8 pullups and rest pause for about 30-45 seconds.
afterwards I go to faulure for about 5 more sets then do 5 negative reps ( Hang for about 5-10 seconds letting myself down slowly with a full extension at the conclusion.)
After back, I head to triceps.
pull downs Starting at 75% of max to failure. Then stripping weight by 5 lb increments and adding reps. Ill use free weights every other week for triceps.
Forearms afterwards… Olympic bar behind the back forearm curls. I double up with the stick attached to rope attached to 15-20 lbs of weight (hard to explain but you hold the rope straight out and wind the weight up the stick with the rope and weight attached to end.) Then I conclude with 15-20 mins of cardio.
Second upper body day consists of chest, biceps, and shoulders…
For chest, every other week on the bench(as opposed to dumbells, i start out at 105% of max with partner for about 2-3 reps. Then go down to 75%, afterwards i go to failure stripping weight and adding reps.
Biceps include preacher curls and concentration curls on alternating days. Again, to failure with added negative reps.
I do crunches on pullup bar on chest days with medicine ball inbetween my thighs. Jump up to bar and hang while doing 4 sets of 15. Increasing reps weekly. Also Do flutter kicks, superman holds, full extension situps on decline bench with 1 plate. * count body builders, yada yada.
Lower body has taken a break because i strained my back while doing squats about 2 weeks ago. I run very frequently so im hoping that will hold me over till my back is good.
