  • DL: Road to 275

    I'm in week 3 of my 2nd blast, and am only a couple pounds over where I finished my first, so I figured this may be a place to help me bump it up. I started at 233 and am at about 255 right now. One reason I think I'm not gaining as much this blast is because I passed over the fact that we were supposed to do slow negatives, I wasn't going fast, but now I usually count 1,2,3, so I'm getting used to that. Here's my last couple workouts.

    Decline Barbell: LT 255 X 11 TT 275 X11
    Behind the Neck Smith: LT 195 X 12 TT 225 X 8 (tried to jump to much, dumbass)
    Dips: LT BW X 23 TT 15 LB. X 19
    Rack Chins: LT BW X 13 TT BW X 17
    Quarter Deads: LT 315 X 10 TT 335 X10
    LT 335 X 4 TT 365 X 5

    Alt db curls: LT 50 X18 TT 55 X 17
    Rev. Grip Curls: LT 85 X 11 TT 95 X 9
    Seated Calves: LT 135 X 10 TT 155 X 9
    Standing Hams: LT 55 X 18 TT 70 X 13
    Hacks: LT 270 X 4 TT 300 X 5
    LT 180 X 11 TT 180 X 16

    Barbell Bench: LT 255 X 12 TT 275 X 7 (I suck!!!)
    Front Smith Press: LT 215 X 12 TT 230 X 11
    CG Bench Press: LT 185 X 14 TT 205 X 13
    Rev. Grip pulldowns: LT 190 X 17 TT 210 X 13
    Barbell Rows: LT 185 X 12 TT 205 X 11
    (I really dropped at first on this one focusing on the negative)

      I like to see when guys have obviously done their homework.A few minor things that I may change (shooting for 12 reps on calves before going up in weight,dropping barbell benches) but other than that your plan looks solid

        Thanks, I was hoping to hear from you FH. I'm about 6'3", which I think you said you are also, but you weigh over 60 lbs. more than me. I've been to 265, but pretty fat. I'll drop the bench presses, I added those after I realized what everyone says about Dumbbells was right, which is they just don't work for this program.

          Sounds good.Right now the exercises in my chest rotation are Decline smith, Incline Smith and Decline Barbell for what thats worth......Not much probably...LOL

          You're right about being 6'3...It's a long hard road to put enough muscle on to fill out your frame at this height but trust me bro...when you get to that 300lb+range (and pretty lean too) you're gonna be loving life just like FH.....Funny...At this point I never really feel like Im getting any bigger but everyone around me seems like they're shrinking.....I like to call them 'the little people'...LOL

            The hard part for me is trying to stay lean, even though I keep a fairly clean diet, my cutoffs are at 5. If I could do cardio every morning it would help, but I do cardio one day a week in the morning then 3 days a week at 5:30 after work.
            But I got 11 years before I reach the ripe age of 34 to gain 60 lb of muscle.

            I lifted at 7:00 this morning, becuase of my schedule today, and I didn't like it.

            EZ Bar Curls LT 115 X 15 TT 125 X 12
            Pinwheel Curls LT 45 X 9 TT 45 X 12
            Seated/Angled calves LT 270 X 10 TT 290 X 12
            Stiff Leg DL LT 205 X 10 TT 225 X 10
            Leg Press LT 630 X 3 TT 630 X 2 (I usually kick ass on quads, but this morning I didn't?)
            LT 405 X 16 TT 410 X 20

            Since my schedule was different my meals were also:
            First thing in the morning: 30 grams Whey w/ 2 packets of blueberry cream oatmeal
            Post-W 90 grams whey/ dextrose/malto/crea
            then back to normal.

              but only 3 years to reach 26 which is how old I was when I reached 300lbs for the first time.....So it's 20lbs a year right?....LOL

                I doubt I'll get to 300 by 26, but thanks for making me feel like a puss. :Punch:
                Here's my fat-but after my first 8 week blast at a little over 250.

                  I'we noticed that when I get to rather low rep in shoulders that I'll loose a lot of reps with the slightest increase, so I'm not so surpriced,..... let's see if you can get into the 11-15 RP with 225 next time.

                  Barbell Bench: LT 255 X 12 TT 275 X 7 (I suck!!!)
                  not easy to RP barbell bench, and like FH said, dump it (dangerous). I'd choose some machine (hammer strengths are good) or smythe incline/decline bench instead.

                  Rack Chins: LT BW X 13 TT BW X 17
                  great, now add some weight.

                  Quarter Deads: LT 315 X 10 TT 335 X10
                  LT 335 X 4 TT 365 X 5
                  You can jump a little up in weight in the first set so you'll get ~8reps.
                  each day is an opportunity to move you closer to your goals.
