  • To my trainees

    Ive been experimenting with something that seems to be working very well....and Ive had a couple of my other trainees do it as well as myself. This especially applies to super strong people like Friggin Huge, Chris250, and Inhuman. Its much easier when your squatting 185-225lbs on your top sets on squats (or any exercises) than when you are up near myself and some of my other highly advanced trainees who are pushing 405-600lbs on exercises . Just the warmup sets for my plus 250lb trainees take some time to get up to the working weights. I see guys in this forum who are around 210lbs that fly thru their workouts because their training weights arent extreme (yet) and their warmups to get there arent anything big. But for some of us larger stronger bodybuilders its 4-5 sets of warmups to get to your training weights and its not the workout that is taking long but (the damn warmup sets). Of late I have been burning both ends of the candle with Trueprotein, training people, and training myself and keeping Inhuman out of legal trouble by his constant rummaging thru dumpsters in back of restraurants. A month or two back I was just feeling destroyed by my third workout before the 2 days off. the first two were fine but that Friday workout had me pretty beat. So i tried the following
    Tues (full workout) Thurs (full workout) Sat (1/2 of the full workout) Sun (other 1/2 of the full workout)---this has really worked out great for me and the half workouts are so short that I almost feel like I had a full 4 days off. If its the chest shoul tri back width and back thick workout Ill do the back workout on saturday and then the chest shoul tri workout on sunday (my shoulders get a lil sore if I do it the other way around)---Going in on a saturday and doing just 2 exercises and leaving feels awesome and the same for sunday--3 exercises and im out of there. If its the other workout, Ill do biceps and forearms on saturday and then calves hams and quads on sunday. This has solved any problems I had as far as feeling kind of beatdown with my schedule the way it is and whats great is its still on the exact same bodyparts worked 2x every 8 days rotation as the regular way. You could also do this M (full) W (full) F (1/2) Sat (1/2)---just an option for you guys to do if you feel like it

        That is a great suggestion Dante and has actually been at the back of my mind for a while now. Sometimes on that chest/shoulders/triceps day, I just don't feel that back width and thickness in me. I go along with it anyway, though. Even though I'm not exactly a huge trainee, do you think this could still work for younger individuals like myself? I have always been one to listen to my body, do you agree?

            i have a question about your stretches. I DO understand them but here is my dilemma. I partially tore my left pec a few months ago. It is healed up now but I dont want to overstretch the muscle if you know what I mean. It is not the torture of holding those dumbells there, it's just that I know for a fact my chest can't take it, no doubt! Is there something else I could do for a stretch or just stretch it really good?

              Great info as always DC. I like allen am not even close to inhumans and FH caliber yet sometimes on the upper body day I do have a hard time finishing also. The upper body day takes like 20 min longer for me then the leg day and feels a lot more strenuous then the leg day (probably due to the fact that I think my lower body responds better then my upper body).
              Would it be ok to just use this method when my body just feels like I cant finish the workout 100% so I dont feel like I wasted a workout by failing at increasing the reps or weight. So it wouldnt be utilized every week just the hectic weeks that cause me to be overtired.

                Dante, that's probably your biggest forte, being able to determine the effective from the non. It's great that they will be able to still workout the bodyparts as often as before.
                Which is "one" of the methods to your madness, so to speak.


                Trulyhuge, can u even do light stretching, working up until a reasonable ROM over time? Even if you have to go to a rehab center to do it?

                      I have actually started this method at the beginning of my contest prep.

                      I train 4 times a week and throw in the rest days when I feel my body needs recovery. It's never set in stone.

                      The one workout I had to split was my chest, shoulders, triceps, and back. By the time I got to back I was too warn out and wasn't fully working my back to it's potential.

                      So here's my split

                      Day 1
                      Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, Abs

                      Day 2
                      Calves, Quads, Hamstrings

                      Day 3
                      Back, Biceps, Forearms, sometimes Abs

                      I also threw in biceps with back to take some work out of Day 2. So it pretty much even amount of work each day.

                        I was sticking to the program as it was laid out, and I was bound determined not to change it and I didn't except for doing chest/tri/shoulder/back width and thickness, my shoulders needed the added rest so I could go heavy on shoulders.

                        But now since I am getting into the 5 month on this program and the weights just don't want to slow down, I am getting beat down to the ground by Sat, I do the same program as FH, TThSat, this is the fourth week of this blast and I can barely make it to Sat workout, so I am now gonna take off 4 days in a row, hope I can handle it, then cruise and blast again.

                        I will try this new split that DC has talked about on my next blast, damn if I don't need it...

                          In-Human...you're gonna like it..for sure.Today was part 2 of my weekend workout and I did Calves/Hams and Quads....I blew the friggin roof off numbers-wise.Hack squats were at an all-time high..and I'm only a little more than 2 weeks into my latest blast so that's very encouraging.
