What Workout Are You Doing?

Will I get the first post?

What workout are you all doing at the moment?

Waterbury method

2nd week day 1 finished today

going good so far

I just started Chad’s ABBH program today. Believe it or not this is my first time trying it. I have high hopes for it.

Right now I’m on my own workout plan. Basicaly I do chest and back one day, rest one day, then legs and arms, rest one day, repeat. Mostly heavy low rep for strength with explosive concentric and 5 sec eccentric. I fisnished TBT about a month ago. Thinking of trying ABBH next or maybe something totalbody with cluster training.

I just finished day one of meltdown training

Mornings at the Gym:

Mon: Chest, Biceps, Forearms & Neck

Tue: Shoulder, Triceps & Back

Wed: Legs & Abs

Thu: Chest, Biceps, Forearms & Neck

Fri: Shoulder, Triceps & Back

Sat: Legs & Abs

Sun: Day of Rest.

Evenings:

Mon: Kickboxing (2 Hr.)

Tue: Kickboxing (2 Hr.)

Wed: Wrestling (1 Hr.)

Thu: Kickboxing (1 Hr.)

Fri: Wrestling (2 Hr.)

Sat: Kickboxing (3 Hr.)

Sun: Day of Rest

Randomly:

Run for 30 Minutes twice a week in the morning.

Yoga 3 times a week.

Twice a week in the afternoon Ab work.

The excercises change though the body part training is often set in stone.

I will begin a very basic routine this week:

Day 1 : 5x3 - 60 s RI
A - Power cleans
B - Clean grip deadlifts
C - One arm Overhead presses

Day 2 : 3x8 - 120 s RI
A - chin-ups
B - Deadstop front squats
C - Dips

My goals are as simple as my routine; get bigger and stronger.

Forgot to say that these 2 days are rotated three times a week M/W/F.

Starting Triple Total Training this week.

Finishing TBT, moving to ABBH or Meltdown :wink:

Didn’t we already do this thread last week?

That being said, since I was a bit of a smartass on the last go round, and since I’m back to the gym after my off week, and, hell, I like posting…

I’m using Mike Mahler’s version of the Russian Bear.

Squat, Dead, Bench, Chin, Military

10x3

3 times a week

probably start ABBH or TBT in the next week or two

Wow, I know your not seeking our approval, but that looks like a VERY intelligent basic plan.

2 things, not to try to mess up your confidence, but

  1. If you do chins and overhead presses together on one day and dips and power cleans on the other they make two awesome supersets.

  2. How often? once a week? You can probably get up to at least 3 workouts a week or every other day with this program.

Good lifting.

Starting the fourth week of The Waterbury Method.

One lift a day
(bench, mpress, deadlift, chins, bent over rows).
I’m in my first week.

OLAD

Bench, Chinups, Squats, Military, Deadlifts.

1st Week.

Included some db presses and weighted dips after the bench, felt like I needed to do the extra work.

Monday - back, biceps, abs
Tuesday - quads, shoulders, calves
Weds - cardio (morning fasted)
Thurs - chest, triceps, 20-30 min sprints
Friday - cardio (morning fasted)
Saturday - hamstrings, abs, calves
Sunday - off

Just started my new program this week, mostly 2-4 sets of 8-10. Plus 10-20 minutes of cardio after lifting.

bent over rows
lat pulldown
seated rows
preacher curls
DB incline curls
hanging knee raises

Squat
barbell lunges
hack squat
military presses
db overhead presses
seated calf raises

flat bench
push ups
db incline press
assisted dips
french press

stiff legged deadlifts
standing or kneeling leg curl
lying leg curl
ab scissors
standing calf raises

I’m working with a great trainer and just learned bb squats, deadlifts, bench press for the first time - it’s awesome! My goal is to lose about 20lbs of fat and get “buff”. I’m open to feedback/comments. Thanks!

I just finished up Charles Poliquin’s German Body Comp and I am now starting ABBH.

I am training towards my next grade in Karate. My current training programe are as follows:

Weight:

Full body 2x/wk

  • Overhead squat
  • DB Clean & Jerk
  • Full Contact Twist
  • Super set:
    DB Chest Press/DB Bench Row

Roughly 60-75mins / session

Cardio:

Cobra bag punching 2-3x/wk
Around 30-40 mins at the morning
(Well, if you call this cardio…)

Karate:

Training 2x/wk, 1.5hrs
Training for techniques (punch, kick, block, foot-steps etc.), self-defense, forms and sparring.

Training Crossfit style. I figure it’s the best way to build a very solid foundation.
