Hey guys, I've been thinking this cruise that maybe it's time to try out the 3-day split for a while? What do you think? Am I advanced enough to move over to that split? Coming into summer I have planned on doing some more cardio and getting a bit leaner and I thought that it might be good to do this while on the 3-day split. I've always liked doing 4 days in the gym so maybe it's time for a change? So far the cruise has been really good my forearms have stopped hurting and lower back is feeling very healthy. So this week I'm planning on getting a few workouts in and I might even add another week of cruise because of an exam next Friday that I really need to study for. And after that is done begin with the 3-way split or 2-way whatever I end up deciding to do???

It is a good idea to lower the frequency if you want to focus on fat loss. Dante said the 6 day split is also another option for focusing on fat loss.

Today I did my first cruise workout since I spent the weekend in Malaga at a Chiropractic seminar which was awesome but I didn't get home until Monday evening. I will see how many workouts I manage to get this week. It might only be 2 and if that's the case I'm going to prioritize the back and biceps since I think I keep a lot of strength in my legs even when not hitting them. So today I did:


Flat plate loaded chest press
40kg's x 10 80kg's x 10 100kg's x 10

Dd side laterals
10kg's x 10 20kg's x 10 30kg's x 10

Incline DB skullcrushers
10kg's x 10 20kg's x 10 25kg's x 10

Cable crunches
40kg's x10 45kg's x 10 52kg's x 10

Hanging leg raises
10 10 10

Not really pushing anything just trying to move some weight and make sure I don't loose any of the strength I have gained.

Second workout of this cruise. Don't think I'll get a leg workout in this week, I'm not too worried about that since it's a cruise. If it was a blast I'd def go during the weekend

Alternated db curl 12,5kg x 10 20x10 25x10

Seated two-handed db curl 20x10 30x10 35x10

Reverse lat pulldown 50x10 85x10 105x10

Dante rows 30x10 40x10 50x10

Machine row 50x10 85x10 109x10

Then I walked around to try out some of the exercises for my blast like the pec dec and the front squat. Front squats are really heavy!!! I only went up to 2 plates but I really felt it. So I'm going to have to start slow with those and work my way up in weight.

Now it's study and relax time until Monday when the blast starts and my second to last exam in Chiro college, super excited Have a good weekend guys!!!

Today felt really good since I was spent at the end of my tricep exercise and the idea of having to do width and deads was not that exciting I'm excited about this blast and I think I will have to drop a few exercises this blast so I'm gonna start preparing for what they will become. I did drop a rep on all my main exercises but I'll put that down to being my first week back after my cruise, so I'm not too worried about it. All in all great workout and looking forward to tomorrow and doing some heavy deads My body weight right now is at 110,9 this morning and my BF is still around 16-17% (16mm on caliper in the right abdomen area) I did drop some of my oats in my diet and they are now at 40g each, I will post my food soon to try and show what I'm doing. No cardio has been added yet. Now food and rest.

Here is my current diet and the only change I've done is that I have lowered my oats over the course of a few weeks down to now 40g per serving. When I was eating the most calories this year I was having 100g per meal (that included oats). So that is where I started and this is where I am now. And Andy I might have a look into some nuts/PB or cheese or something like that. Cheers for the idea

B1 (Last time) Week 5
• Barbell EZ preacher curls 20-30 rest-pause 32,5kg x 14/8/6/28
o Stretch 32,5kg x60sec
• Hammer curl 12-20 SS 30kgx17
o Stretch 35kg x60sec
A1
• A Rack chins 11-20 rest-pause 65kg x 10/6/4/20
• A Deadlifts 4-8 9-12 220x4 180 x 10
o Stretch 60kg x 60 sec
o Stretch doorknob 40kg x 60 sec

B1 (This time) Week 1
• Barbell EZ preacher curls 20-30 rest-pause 32,5kg x 14/6/3/23
o Stretch 32,5kg x30sec
• Hammer curl 12-20 SS 30kgx18
o Stretch 35kg x30sec
• A Rack chins 11-20 rest-pause 70kg x 8/5/4/17
• A Dante rows 20-30 SS 40kg x 30
• A Deadlifts 4-8 9-12 220x3 180 x 10
o Stretch 80kg x 30 sec

Today was a good workout. I have realized that I lost a bit of conditioning from taking 14 days "off". Because my I had a hard time recovering between my sets of deadlift. Dante rows felt amazing, really good exersice. The only thing I'm not happy with is the preacher where I lost a lot of reps and honestly, I don't know why so I'm gonna have to put it down to being the first week back and the same goes for my first set of deads. And a note about the stretches I slowly get into them so next week I'll be doing 60 -90 sec. All in all a solid first pull workout. Have a good day guys.

Honestly, how are the gains from using such high reps on a preacher curl? I just did these tonight and I went too heavy and only got 4 reps, but I was shooting for about 7-9 as usual. If you think they are good then I should consider using higher reps again.

I just got 70 pounds on Pinwheel curls for not even 10 reps and you are telling me you can do hammers with 66 pounds for 17? Fuck man, you are the man, lol.

Anyways whenever I took time off I always lost like 10-20% on my lifts but they come back in 2 weeks time.

I think they are working very well, my first RP set ends up around 10-15 reps so it's not super light. And I think it makes sense from a safety standpoint to not go for like a heavy set since your last RP would end up in the 1-2 reps. And on a preacher curl, I think that it could be easy to tear a bicep which is something I really don't want. Haha, thanks mate but my forearms are paying the price today Yeah it seems like that's what's happening I seem to lose about a rep on most things this blast. And if that's what happens to you then at least I'm not alone haha

Yeah I have watched a video on Youtube of a guy tearing a bicep while resting his elbow on an incline bench during one arm DB curls. Definitely don't want that.

I remember back in the 2000s, guys were always talking about doing 6-8 reps. And I always liked them, probably because it is simpler to get good at.

But when I did DC, I liked to fail my first set around 10 reps and finish the 3rd at 15-17. I made the best progress whenever I hit 15-17 often.

I secretly love doing ~12 rep straight sets, though. I should try to get in some more of these tomorrow.

Yeah I think whenever I can choose a safer way I'll def try and do that. I'm sure you can get away with heavier but for me it didn't sounds like a good idea And hey if you love 12 rep sets then go for it

B1 (Last time) Week 5
• Leg-press calf raises 10-12 270kg x 11
• High wide leg press SS 15-25 380kg x 25
o Stretch 35 kg x60 sec
• Leg press 6-10 20 SS 470kg x 10 370 x 20 (Week 6)
o Stretch 60 sec

B1 (This time) Week 1
• Leg-press calf raises 10-12 270kg x 12
• High wide leg press SS 15-25 400kg x 25
o Stretch 35 kg x60 sec
• Leg press 6-10 20 SS 480kg x 10 380 x 21
o Stretch 60 sec

Today was a really good workout and even though I hogged the Leg press for close to an hour (dick move) the workout felt really good. Luckily people in my gym don't really train legs which is good for me. The weights moved very well and I managed to progress on all the moves which is awesome. The high and wide leg press I managed to do a really big jump and it was very much unplanned. I simply didn't wanna do the math to make it 390 and 400 just seemed easier haha But looking back now the WM for quads seems like I left some in the tank. Something to think about for next time and then I'll prob make it an even 400 as well

Nice workout mate. About 12 plates on the leg press for ten.

You start the cardio yet?

Today was a good day I just finished my second to last exam as a chiropractic student and now there is only one more to go then I'll be all ready to graduate The workout today was really good and I felt a lot stronger today than I did last time doing these moves. And I think that my stamina is back and it's not as tough to do my sets anymore. It just took me a couple of days to get that back. Now on to a nice meal nr 4 and some downtime during the weekend. Have a good weekend guys.

Yeah I think it was about 12 plates per side on the leg press. It's getting tough though the damn machine doesn't fit any more plates so I've already started stacking it on top of the machine. I think that is a DC problem hahah No I haven't started cardio yet. I will try and lower my carbs first and when I can't go lower (due to my protein sources containing a lot of carbs) I will add some cardio. To me it makes sense to not overdo cardio in the "offseason" because if I'm doing an hour of cardio in the "off season" then I have nowhere to go to lose fat. I can't do 3h of cardio to get shredded. That's always been my way of doing it.

Hope that is understandable I just re-read it and it doesn't make a lot of sense.

Nah it makes sense. You don't want to focus on 2 things at the same time. And nice job on the incline bench numbers going up.

Keep it going with your career ambitions as well.

Also, do you or have you ever competed? Or plan on it?

Also, maybe you could drop your carbs by getting more protein from nuts and seeds instead of beans and other legumes?

Get more protein from eggs? I don't know if you do like eating eggs, though. My first suggestion I'm sure isn't bad of a point though. Or maybe whey protein, or a vegan protein powder?

There's lots of options to get the carbs down.

Glad it made sense. Thanks for that it's been a long time coming No I have never competed and I'm not really planning on it I think. There has always been a slight voice in my head about doing it but never big enough to actually listen to it How about yourself?

Yeah those are good ideas. It is a little hard to eat 50grams of protein from nuts though haha but I get what you're saying. I might incorporate some more nuts and other sources in a couple of weeks. Now I'm sticking with lowering my oatmeal until that is low and then I'll go into my legume meals.

I have liked to, but I am far from interested it doing it yet. Still got a lot of body parts to bring up, other than just the body fat.

I really shouldn't get too ahead of myself...

I'm still ~319 pounds... I shouldn't be more than 28% body fat by now since I got tested 2 months ago.

Since you are so much stronger than me on squats and deadlifts it proves that I can add a lot of overall mass for a while... and I know my upper body will keep going too. I have only been training for 10 months... guys do this for years.

I'd like to gain 20 pounds of beef before trying to drop fat and gain muscle a bit slower.

I don't know how long that will take but it will be a while.

I think its too arrogant and I'd shoot myself in the foot but I am gonna let the viewers do the math for themselves... bbers compete around 5% bf.

Did you start training all together 10 months ago or DC style? I've always liked the way Dante explained it that the best way to beef up is to eat and train like a madman and get really heavy. Then when you're 300+ lbs you start thinking about losing weight to display what's underneath which could then be a really good 250lbs bodybuilder. At least that's how I view it and it's what I've done ever since I started training just not as brutal I never hit more than 20 kgs over what I weighed the previous year. I'd like to think that I started at around 70-80kgs and now I'm probably around 100kg's in good shape. So to me that's 20kgs on mass from hard work and a good diet with lots of protein. But I am expecting things to go a bit faster now once I have gotten into DC.
