TIP "WEAK AREAS"

When we start the long journey in bbding our bodies respond better to certain exercises based on our own body’s biomechanics and physics. That’s why some people love to bench others love to squat and others love to curl from sunrise to sunset! And Like magic these body parts grow and grow! Strength increases as well and.. naturally we kept doing what we can do best! However we ignore what we can’t do well, we ignore what felt awkward and uncomfortable. Big mistake! Because, as a result our body grows out of proportion and lacking symmetry. Who cares if you can squat 500lbs but have weak upper body! Or if you have 19” arms and you look like a monkey onstage with no chest or back! This sport is about creating the whole package, about creating an optical illusion and not about how much you weight or how many lbs you can lift! So focus on the exercises that you hate because there are a myriad of muscle fibers waiting to be stimulated and once they grow your physique will be taken to a whole new level.

Chest/back today! Wow this workout almost kill me! Not sure why i went into crazy mode today, perhaps i was releasign some of my frustrations LOL!...Anyway i was so out breath at the end that i felt like passing out...Fortunately i always carry my PROTOCOL with me and i took an extra serving on my way out!!

I hit back like a mad man! heavy close grip pull dows with 270lbs, then i did DB's rows like 8 sets total including 120's x 40 reps and i finished stacking db's to make 170's x 8 reps (VIDEO Coming up LATER) then HS high row worked my way up to 5pl/side x 8-10 reps, then straight arm pull downs, 3 sets x max reps

Chest was not easy...i hit it hard but i was already tired but i managed to hit 4pls/side on the HS bench press x 5 reps, then incline db press with 100's x 15 reps (3 sets) and i finished with cable flyes supersetted with bw dips!

Check for videos later

Update on knees!

Finally i think that i figure out what was wrong with my knees! (well i hope so LOL!) I discovered a very painfull spot near my knees..located close to where the vastus lateralis attaches to the knee. It was so painfull that i couldnt hold the pressure for more than 10 secs while foam rolling. Ouch! However i pushed thru pain and foam rolled that area (boths sides) for like 10-15 minutes. Also i foam rolled the piriformis, IT bands and inner tight just in case....after that I rapped my knees before every set during my workout and then once again i foam rolled the tight muscles for another 5-10 mins to finish. The good news is that after my workout my knees were just a bit sore and after 1 hr the pain was gone.! I am very exited now beacuse i believe that i found the root of the problem "tight muscles" ...When a muscle is tight the lenght of the muscle is altered (short muscles) as a result the body will compensate for this lack of flexibility. This forces the body to move in an altered fashion leading to pain and injury.

My legs are sore today but my knees arent! I hope this is the end of this problem! i cant waint to get back to my usual leg workouts

The plan:
Foam rolling before the workout (10 mins)
Wrap kneed during the workout
Foam Roll again After (10 mins)
ICe at home (15 mins)

LEGS – Working my way up after the knee issue

Sometimes I ask myself “why some people always have something to say” Today I felt challenged by this guy and I was a little pissed while working out! He is a personal trainer or something from another gym and even though he looks like a nice guy he always find a way to say something about my training or my form etc… I barely spoke with him and when it happens is because he approach me with a question..Anyway today he crossed the line and I had to put him in his place LOL! I consider my self a nice guy and I don’t mess with anybody…when I am training I hit the weights and I don’t speak with anybody…”I do my thing and that’s it”

To make the story short today I was deadlifting and he started to deadlift next to me! and I noticed that he was copying what I was doing! I was loading the bar slowly (sets of 5) working my way up.. so does he was..Also he was standing next to me looking at me while I was doing my set! Once I reached 385 he said something about my form..i laugh kindly said it works for me! Then he did 3 reps with 385 and I load the bar with 405 and while I was trying to focus he said “hey let me use “your” bar because I don’t want to take the weight out of mine” I SAID OK!! THAT’S IT…he crossed the line here! …He did 3 reps with 405 and I though ok it’s enough…lets smoke this guy!!!! I pulled 10 reps with 405!! Then took a break dropped the weight to 315 and pulled 24 reps!! …now try to copy that big mouth i thought LOL!
