Ordered Steve Reeves book, and it shipped yesterday. I won't have a lot of time to really get into it till I finish up these work projects I'm on right now.

My whole basic program is his beginners routine, as far as the movements. I've made a few changes based on my own areas that I want to emphasize, namely legs. With the switch to a 3x10 set/rep, it really is his beginners routine.

His intermediate routine incorportates a couple of small changes in movements, but the major difference is the set/reps. His intermediate routine runs a 3x8-12 set rep scheme.

I'll be interested to compare this book, with the York barbell courses on the front site. Digging into the old barbell courses has proven to be a bit addictive.

Let me know what you think. When I get the time, I want to collect every old routine I can and add it to the site. I am completely addicted myself!

Default Thursday Oct. 22nd

Feeling a little tired, but motivated to work. Took in a lot of extra calories the last couple of days. I'm tired of eating at this point. I had to force myself to have my 4 eggs at breakfast this morning, but I did it. Sometimes I feel like eating is the hardest part of this process.

Really wnat to get heavier deads back into the rotation. Will see how things feel Saturday, and may put some in then.
================================================== ========
Squats

1x10@50
1x10@130
2x10@180

Still feeling that strain spot, but leaning forward ever so slightly in the squat, and not going all the way ATG, alleviates most of the problem. Still making sure that my ass goes below my knees though. Legs are showing the work.
================================================== ========
RDL

1x10@130

These felt a bit better today, as compared to last time.
================================================== ========
bent row

3x10@135

rest pause on the last two reps. The RDL's took a little bit of my energy for these so they felt heavier.
================================================== ========
standing press

1x12@110
1x8@110
1x2@110

Went to 12 reps on the first set. That really made the other two sets hard. I liked it. Delts are really starting to show the work.
================================================== ========
Bench

2x10@160
1x8@160

Got an extra rep on the last set, as compared to last time. Not really seeing any lack of chest growth with having delts before chest.
================================================== ========
Dips

1x12 BW
1x8
1x6

wide chins

2x6
1x5

================================================== ========
Calf raise

1x20@200

Toes on a 2x4, barbell on shoulders as for squats. Standing right in the squat stands, and do the raises. Need to consistantly hit calves with this.
================================================== ========

Finished.

You stick with standard deadlifts, or play with sumos?

Great workout. Keep hitting it hard!

I have not yet done any Sumo deads, but you have me interested in them.

When I put them in the rotation I'd probably pair them with front squats.

I've been alternating presses, with upright rows, and I had wanted to alternate squats, with deads, I'll be alternating chins, and dips, for CGBP, and BB curls. Not in to big a rush yet, but I also need to work in some forearm wrist curls, in the future. I'm trying to keep sessions to 8 moves, with 10 as a max.

The Steve Reeves book showed up yesterday. It seems interesting, and has lots of good pictures. Not a groundbreaking tome on weightlifting, but looks like it will be an interesting read.

I ordered it from the Steve Reeves website, and it was only 24.95 plus shipping. Thats the cheapest I've seen it anywhere.

I like alternating deads with squats, but the sumos put a monkey in that wrench.

Too bad the Reeves book isn't better. But then again, so many books are blah to me. I want to get the Doug Hepburn book soon.

When I was doing the stricly gymnastic stuff, I was heavily into static holds. They frigging work well!!

I have not done them strictly for forearms though. My forearms are growing from all of the work I'm doing. Thats why I'm not in a hurry to throw more at them. When the deads come back they'll grow!

Caseys articles are far better than this book, but it's still nice to read the mans words and thoughts.
