Easy, needed to pull out based on time and not risking anything. Actually elevated behind the back deads are harder to get moving, but once the bar moves, it flys up, as long as you are set right and the bar does not hit the hams.

What’s important in this vid. is watch how wide this guy benches and other exercises he uses wide grip, and look at those shoulders-

Wanted to get something else in, but ran out of time. I’m so damn busy. I have a hound that is pushing 17years old, she has had vestibular disease for over a year, a mass under her ear that oozes constantly, the steroids are what keeps her going and eating, but we now have to hand feed her cause she can’t stand and eat at the bowl, she walks around for hours at times when all the meds kick in. The mass on her put weight on her head so she can’t really walk straight most of the time.

Do you ever take progress pictures?

Yes.

This one is October, I’m too small-

This one is January, I like this better, but still too small-

Did you go to this style of training at the start of that first video until the most recent video?

How do you feel about the results so far?

No, I’ve been slowly incorporating this style for an entire year.

Before the first vid I was a 240# fat pillow belly. I spent about two years doing super high rep squats specifically to loose that gut and got me down to 188. In the last year I’ve been incorporating more and more bodybuilding stuff, but I don’t care at all about the competitive bbing look, especially the nattys.

I’ve still been lifting for 20 years though.

Best results I’ve ever had after 20+years naturally!

Thats cool to hear. Im kind of getting an itch to transition into a intuitive, train-how-I-want style and I think Im zeroing in on all the stuff I like and works for me (which is higher in frequency like you are doing here) so to hear that it seems youre kind of doing that and getting great results is cool to see.

Hey Lonnie,

The intuition for me was thinking of how some of the biggest guys trained before they ever became a pro and started selling the routines for the masses.

I believe most of these guys just went into the gym or the basement every chance they got and pounded away.

I don’t believe any of them followed any rest and recovery protocols, I believe they trained more to get more. To me training more to get more is my intuition. Of course eating eating eating is very important.

I logged the previous sets because I normally don’t make 10# jumps, but since I was only going for 1-rep on my top weight I figured I’d get some volume in. I could have done 2reps here, and I would say at my current BW, this was a PR. I’ve done about 250 before but I weighed 225+ and fat.

side laterals-
13.5 x29ea. x29ea.

Hammer curls-
50+bar x35

Here is an example of my intuition on what I’ve learned about 1-2sets. If I do a hard azz set on one exercise, I can do a very,very intense 1-set of light weight or do a good warmup set which is basically set 1 and then go all out on set 2. Anything after that on the SAME exercise is just spinning wheels, as I’ve utilized all my power.

Now, coming back the next day doing that SAME exercise is WAY MORE PRODUCTIVE. This is what I discovered about me. I will use the Rich P. 8 hour arm workout as an example, for me, it would be FAR more productive to do the 1-10 minute ish arm workout ALL OUT INTENSE SET for bi/tri, for 16 days straight.
