    Sets that are underlined denote drop sets, sets done in succession with no rest


    Rep Scheme
    For the most part all sets are Dorian Yates style HIT. 12-8-6+2+2 when I have a spotter or 12-8-6+2 drop set. I incorporate a lot of drop sets into all my exercises except barbell work. Have been seeing good results with this style and will continue until I feel I need a break from the intensity of it.

    Chest Tris
    Incline Bench Tricep Pressdown
    DB Incline Fly Standing Overhead Press (FST-7)
    Flat DB Press
    Cable Crossover (FST-7)

    Barbell Work - Warm up with wooden bar, then bar, then weight, depending on the day and time, front/overhead/press will be added or subtracted
    Snatch 8x2
    Clean and jerk 8x1
    Front Squat 5x5
    Overhead Squat 5x5
    Press 5x5

    Back
    Pulldown
    Barbell Row
    T-Bar Row
    (need more work here, widegrip seated row?)

    Legs
    Front Squat
    Overhead Squat/Back Squat depending on how I feel
    Leg Press
    Seated Leg Curl
    Leg Extension

    Shoulders Bis
    Push Press Standing EZ bar
    Seated Cable Lateral Raise Incline DB Curls
    Reverse Flies Bench over DB Curls

    Abs
    Dans routine, I bought ab straps as well

    Diet Contest:
    I am unsure what my macros will be on contest. It will be flushed out in the week or two before the contest. My goal is to gain LBM and minimal fat gain. I do not find carb cycling hard so I may continue to do this. If I can start the contest at 200 and end at 213 I would not be upset if I didn't gain any/minimal fat.

    Workout Contest:
    I will most likely use the same workouts as I am now with less cardio and it will all be HIT training. I will be looking for help from members to help bring up laggy parts, specifically my chest

    Cycle:
    Week 1-13 test prop
    Week 5-13 Tren ace
    Week 1-13 T3
    Week 5-13 var?

    Standard PCT

    Sunday Feb 24, 2012


    Diet has been pretty appalling and I am disgusted with myself. This afternoon I was 217.5 but everything felt strong overall through last weeks workouts.

    My son and gf have been gone the last 10 days and are back in about an hour. With them back I will fall back into my regular routine minus this week and a few changes.
    First off: my knee is still quite swollen. Tomorrow morning I am going to the doctor to get it checked out. I am most likely thinking he will say PRICE and let it heal. I will listen to him minus a few things.

    1) I will dump any cardio that impacts my knee, mostly my am fasted walks. I will, however, attempt stationary biking if it doesn't bother my knee. If it does than im SOL in that department.
    2) Upper body will be fine to do. I can do almost my whole workout on machines that I don't require to use legs to stabilize. So back, chest, shoulders, arms are still in and if I can work around my knee without putting pressure on it then I will do that.


    Off to the grocery store for fresh fruit and veggies before the family gets home!

    Wednesday Feb 27, 2012 - 213.5

    Doctor went well on Monday. Swollen tendon on inner left knee. Ice and rest, standard protocol. Been taking it easy on it and no pain and very little swelling.

    Eating has been going well. Going to dial it in tomorrow again and get cals down a little bit more.

    Yesterday I did Chest.

    Decline 12,8,6, drop set
    Incline 8, then RC started to hurt. I am thinking I have the steam to do one press exercise and that is it. I will explore strengthing the conditioning of my RC and see if that helps. fingers crossed.
    Cable Crossovers

    Today

    Snatches - light weight for form, felt great, no knee pain even in catch and dip
    BB Row
    TBar Row

    overall a great workout! sweat like a mofo and banged out all sets and reps with a purpose. was dead at end. workout accomplished.

    By 'front loading' my posts I can edit each week by week so progress can be easily followed by competitors, judges and the rest of the board. I will be updating the first post in half hour or so after I type it out. Bear with me, I do it all from my iPhone!

    Wonder if this is still happening?

    No idea what the word on this is if it is still happening or not. Either way I will continue my workouts and diet and implement my purposed cycle around the same time. If that is the case I will transfer my posts to my previous accountability thread.
