You could try Dimel Deadlifts. Those are an arse kicker.

Thanks, BtB. I'll have to think about that a bit more. Trying to really work the hamstrings (other than with leg curls), and RDL (per the original program) does work - either I just have to get used to them (which I could), or try another new thing...


Week 2 Day 1: Chest & Triceps (Strength Mode)

Bench: 85kg/187lb x 3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3 (2:00 rest between sets)

DB Bench: 32kg/70.4lb DBs x 10, 36kg/79.2lb DBs x 9, 38kg/83.6lb DBs x 6

Cable Flies: some

Tate Press: 24kg/52.8lb DBs x 9,9,10

Overhead Rope Tricep Extension: some


Seems like I chose the right weight for bench, and other stuff. Probably could've used more with a couple of things, but this just means that for bench, 87.5kg/192.5lb next time around (in two weeks from today) should be no problem, then 90kg/198lb the one after that.

Good work. Keep the benching up.

Cheers, guys!

And thanks for dropping by and commenting, Wesker. I'll make sure to check out your journal, log, uh... thing, as well.


Week 2 Day 2 - Back (Density Mode)

Deadlift: 162.5kg/357.5lb x 15 rest pause (15/15)

Underhand Grip Barbell Row: 85kg/187lb x 15,8,6,7,7,7,8 rest pause (58/30)

Wide Grip Lat Pulldown: 81.8kg/180lb x 13,7,6,6,5,6,7 rest pause (50/30)

Standing Cable Crunch: 140lb x 12,12,15

Standing Calf Raise Machine: 420lb x 15,15,15 (feet straight / pointed out / pointed in)


Calves twice a week seems a good idea. They are lagging a bit, and it doesn't tax me or take much time, tacked on at the end of a deadlift- or squat-based session.

Could really feel the lats contracting and stuff, with the rows. More than ever before.

Deadlifts in that semi-RP mode are a killer, that's for sure. It feels like cardio, lol. But in a good way.
