T Nation



Okay I know we've tried this before but we have a wave of new logs and its getting hard to quickly find the people you are following closely so I thought maybe we could try this again.

The is the Brotherhood of Iron thread.

In this thread we will post our training and training related stuff only. The personal stuff should stay in your logs. As well as cat pics and other icons. The girl in the pink shirt gif is the exception.

I'm not suggesting you not put your training in your logs but rather copy and paste it to here as well.

This way people who only have a couple of minutes can jump to this thread and catch up on their friends training and then go to the individual logs when they have more time.

This has worked well in another forum so it should work here and it should only take a couple of extra seconds.

I'll start off.

I started taking D-aspartic acid. So far I've been taking it in the morning but I'm wondering if there would be any advantages to taking it pre-lifting.

Any advice?

I'll be posting my lifting in here this afternoon.

Maybe it will work this time.

This way


Nice Idea. I'm in.

Great lifting guys.

For those that haven't seen the other BOI thread here's the link so you can see how they work it.



Well said Joe.

I think it's getting a bit too 'Facebook' here of late.

I joined to read and talk about LIFTING! and there doesn't seem to be much of that going on.

I don't care about football or cat pics or when you did your ironing.

So a lifting only log sounds a great idea.


I like it Joe. Just ended a deload yesterday so Friday I'll post something more note worthy but yesterday:

Again deload

OHP 115 2x8
Behind the neck press 85 2x8
Upright row 85 2x8

Tbar rows 135 2x10
Front plate raise 45 2x15

Lying tri ext 85 2x12
DB curls 35 2x12

What about videos? I think they should go here but that just my opinion? That's how the other BOI does it.


yep, videos absolutely belong here.


i like the idea as well. there's a lot of good lifting going on over here but it's hard to get to it all with so many logs. i'll be posting.


I'm in...nobody likes my thread anyway...woe is me..wait...is that facebookish !?!?

Bench 5*235

Hi Joe, can I join in?

I'm on a standard 4 day split.
chest,back, shldrs, legs.
concentrating on bring my DL up into the 400's.

the rest are ancillary exercises for bulk.

I like it that people quit asking me if I 'work out' and now just figger that I must.

I do DL's on back day, and have been working up to 365 triples.

goal is 405 triples by the end of Feb.


I'm also doing D-Aspartic acid. I'm taking it pre-workout mixed in with my regular pre-workout (cracked) supplement. I like it so far, seems to be working.
