#1

Here goes.

i did a quick search i couldnt find anything like it,my idea is to try some of the T-Nation workouts posted in the articles and see if they work (for me).

Going to try the add a inch to your arms on monday maybe,i dont want to do it and not record it with pics so ill sort out my camera asap.

i was doing 5/3/1 before the sickness i was going pretty good with that,but now before starting back the pl training i wanna try some of the bb workouts posted on this site.

i havent done 1rm’s in a long while,so yeah…i hope to improve on them!

Diet

Diet tends to vary but when i can i try to stick to this one as much as possible.Currently simmer so im getting a lie in every morning the diet and times will change when i go back to school.

11:00 breakfast:cup of coffee,100g porridge,glass of oj,and a apple

1:00 lunch:a sausage sandwich and tea

post workout shake normally around 2:15*

4:30 dinner steak and two backed potatoes (or some form of potatoes)

6:30 another shake*

8:30 around 200g of pasta with cheese

9:30 another shake*

  • i currently have this sci mx protein shake…its shite.im going to get some nutrition x protein and maybe some nutrition x creatine too!havent tried creatine at all yet,some im eager to try although the funds are low.

they sound like it, but bronchitis is no joke. i lost a lot of weight and strength last winter due to that as well.

im not a fan of it really!i will post the program and pics later


#8

This is a picture after i got a bit of a pump…
i was going to put up pictures of before and after the program but i didnt have that much of a success with it!i think my arms were pretty close to 16 here but that was just a pump i guess.(dont flame me i know i dont have big arms at all!) so this will be the only pic i put up today.

^ i cant do a side tricep shot for shit.

heres the workout

bb curls (narrow grip) 1 set of 10
superset with
incline lying triceps 1 set of 10
rest 90 seconds

bb curls (normal grip) 1 set of 10
superset with
lying tricep extensions(flat bench) 1 set of 10
rest 90 seconds

bb curls (wide grip) 1 set of 10
superset with
decline lying tricep extensions 1 set of 10

20 minute break

alternating dumbell curls 2 sets of 15
superset with
dumbell lying triceps extension 2 sets of 15
rest 90 seconds

20 minute break

bb curls 1 set of 9*
superset with
lying tricep extensions 1 set of 9*

  • superslow reps 5 seconds on positive 5 seconds on negative.

thats one cycle of the program i repeated that 4 times

taking a creatine and protein shake in between each cycle

this isnt the exact T-Nation program,i doubt ill be trying that one.but this is one which i taught would be pretty easy to follow.personally i didnt think it was great no great gains from it.ill do measurements again later when my arms are completely cold.
