The winter is nearing an end.
Stays light out a little longer.
Time to get serious about the programs again!

I only go about 3 times a week in the winter doldrums.
Time to up that to 5 times.

So, what are you all doing?
Let's get to humpin'!!!
Let's be "LUNKS" Bro's!!!


Somebody has to make the puny runts feel bad!!!!![afro]

Just finishing up Kris Gethin's DTP workout.

Here is the link: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kris-gethin-dtp-4-weeks-to-maximum-muscle.html

Basically just the craziest workout I've ever done. Did legs two days ago and I'm still hurting pretty bad.

Chest day today. Trying to find the right time to go.

It's a good plateau buster since it's only 4 weeks long. But don't take it from me, go watch the videos!

I did the Jim Stoppani Shortcut to Size before that.

It started off pretty well, but I hit a plateau and the weeks just kinda dragged on until I stopped a week short.

After I finish this DTP program, I'm just going to make a hybrid version of a few programs to make my own 8 week trainer! [headbang]

I finally got my schedule set for the next few months, so I was able to get my routine set and back on track. I have to wait to figure out when my late night meetings are, because I don't like to lift at 6am when I have a meeting that goes until 11 the night before. So, this is my schedule.

Monday- Chest & Back
Tuesday-run 3-5 miles
Wednesday-Legs & Abs
Thursday-Tennis with a Friend
Friday- Arms and Shoulders
Saturday-Tennis again
Sunday-Rest

I have been doing the Mens Health Spartucus workout.

Pretty interesting.........but it's time to start pumping again!

Good to have a couple lifters in here!

Yeah, I am excited, I just started working on deadlifts and squats, but have kept the weight low to make sure I am having proper form. Once I really am confident that I have that down, I am excited to see what progress I can make with that. I realized that the machines, especially for legs, just weren't cutting it

I strongly suggest trying this beginner squat program.

http://www.weightrainer.net/spreadsheets/bellsquat.html

You only have to squat once a week for 12 weeks. I did it last summer and gained roughly 70 lbs.

There is an excel spread sheet that lays everything out for you. I will be doing it again soon.

EDIT: It'll only show your projected max right about 20lbs more than your current max, but your legs have so much muscular potential that you'll blow past that mark, and have to adjust the program accordingly.

If you're trying to build muscle I'd be careful with running this much in one day. Especially if you're running this for time. Try to keep your HR at around 120-130 or else your body will start burning muscle for energy rather than fat.

Regardless what some will tell you, excessive running can eat away muscle mass.

I hit it hard today.....feel the rush!!!!![]

Yes I am.......running does not build muscle mass.

I don't run very fast. I don't have a HR monitor when I run, but I usually do about 10 minute miles (I can run 1 mile in about 6). I never feel real winded. I mostly do it because I can't play tennis on Tuesdays and want to get in cardio, but was thinking of cutting it out and resting 2 days a week.

I think one of my big issues is that I don't really have a goal anymore. If you look through, I started a "tweb is a noob thread" and basically got to where I was looking to go. I am down to about 160lbs and 15%bf. I feel like I am kinda stuck between a bulk and cut training, and can't really decide which one to do. I am more looking for lean muscle and don't really want to get 'big' like you see guys at the gym or for sports or whatever.

I like that squat routine you posted, and it seems interesting, but I am curious if there is a way to figure out your 1RM with out actually doing it? As I said earlier, I have been just doing light weight to focus on form, and was just going to slowly add to that, but this seems interesting. My problem is that I don't really have anyone around at the gym at 6am as a spot or whatever to see what my max is. Is there a formula I can possibly use to get close to and then use that? Or is this something that if I can't get a spot for, I just shouldn't do it?

Thanks for the tips guys. I have been working out consistently for about 15 months now, and have made a ton of progress, but still don't really know what I am doing.

There isn't really a truly accurate formula, but you can just google "1rm calculator" and they are generally close.

Or you can just put the safety bars on the squat rack to a level that will let you "fall out" if you fail.

Personally I get a huge rush from lifting to find my 1RM's.
