    Everything is going well at this point, I get impatient and I always want to be ahead of schedule! Abs are coming in I should start looking pretty good in about 4 more weeks. I'm 12 weeks out from the show. I normally diet for 20 weeks and I didn't start until 15 weeks out this time. Should still be plenty of time, I'm usually ready way ahead anyway. I just don't like waiting til the last weeks to get in shape!

    No hams are not a strong point and thanks for calling me out on that! I'm going step it up in that area this week!

    Oh it is killer! Can't use heavy weights at all but I still get sore! Old school stuff, kinda a lesser version of what the top guys did back in the 70's. Once my cardiovascular system catches up I hope to be able to do 315 for 4x10 with the short rest periods.

    Wow, was it that many? lol I didn't add them up. I rested 30-45 sec between sets, lasted just over an hr. Prob 1 hr. 15 min. after abs. Yeah, I'm sweating and huffing and puffing between sets! The 4'th set on the 4x10 sets is killer!

    I must love the pain. That's my favorite type of workout. 30 to 45 second between sets. You ego has to be thrown out the window

    It does hurt, gotta love it! Its a completely different workout from what I've used in the past. I've always gone heavier and rested longer between sets. I'm reinventing myself this year, I feel like its time to make some changes. Tired of the nagging injurys!

    Thanks Kevin!

    Fried! I draw alot of attention these days! lol

    45 sec rest average between sets, finished in just under an hour.

    Legs seem to really be responding well to this workout. I'm going up in weight almost every leg day mostly because my cardiovascular system is finally catching up and I'm not as gased between sets.

    Great leg workouts! Just curious, but did you do calves first? Do you usually do that? I would think that would effect your large movements like squats.

    I haven't always done calves first but I'm doing them on the same day with thighs and hams now and I want to do them justice. I know I wouldn't if I saved them till the end. Plus it feels nice dropping into a full squat on pumped calves! Gives me some cushion! lol Seriously it doesn't seem to affect my upper leg workout in a negative way.

    If I were as strong as you I probably couldn't do it either! I did DC training for a period a few yrs ago and calves were trained first so I got used to it.

    I'm lookin ok, give another 4 weeks and I should be pretty cut. I can see everything now just need to keep my foot on the pedal. Skin is getting thinner everyweek. I need to get that shrink wrapped look like you!

    Yeah I know, its a gamble making a drastic change. Doesn't always workout the way you hope. This training is working great, I think partly because its not draining my nervous system so much. I seem to be recovering well.

    Joel:

    Like you, I've always based my training around high-intensity, low-set sessions with plenty of rest between sets. I stuck to the same training style pre-contest, believing that if I lowered the weights, I'd lose size.

    Do you find that you're holding your size well with this lighter but faster-paced training?

    Believe it or not yes! Its working really well and my joints are loving it. I plan to mix it up some going a little heavier maybe everyother bdpt workout but the volume is working great and if anything I've gotten bigger. Maybe thats just wishful thinking! lol But we'll see when I get a little further into the diet.

    Thanks, I don't have any endurance in my pecs. Those short rest periods and lactic acid buildup result in some pretty puny weights! lol But I am getting terrific workouts. I'm going to mix it up some next week pyramid the weights up some.

    I'm not telling you anything you dont already know..just a reminder, weights dont mean chit. It's obvious to the seasoned guys that you are busting your ass and that's what makes the difference. Lift as heavy as you can with the most intensity you can. IMHO doing a 500lb squat for 2 reps then resting for 3 minutes to do another set is far less beneficial to muscle atrophy than doing a 225lb squat to complete failure with very little rest between sets.

    We forget this when we get in the gym, you're no exception Hammer.

    This is why I do a combination of both!

    Yes WE do. I found myself adding weight to my squats every workout which is great but I have to realize that I have lower back and knee issues that are going to FAIL if I don't train smart. We don't have steel cables for tendons...well except for Joe!

    You are exactly right, we need to stay after each other! Thanks! Lisa always gives me this funny look when I add more weight to the bar and says, "but why"? I never have had and intelligent answer!
