Dead Lift

Bicycle Crunches

4 sets of 10-12 Reps

Notes:

This workout is basically a Steve Reeves inspired workout. Mr. Steve Shaw has the routine posted in this forum somewhere, but I can't post the link because my account it too new.


This week started off much better than last week. I think it's because last week, I made the mistake of trying to include more exercises and I added an extra training day. Last week, instead of MWF, I trained MWF, took Saturday off, then Trained again Sunday. Thinking that rest will be critical to succeed in this program.

Managed to increase reps on every exercise compared to last week.

Have been pushing lighter weights compared to when I did splits in order to adjust to higher frequency.

Am relatively new to dead lifts and approaching them cautiously.



Pros and Cons encountered so far:

Pros:

Feel much more energized after leaving the gym. The extra rest days allow energy reserves to be built up. The result is that I am able to have longer training sessions without running our of gas.

On a 5 day split, I was pretty much spent after 45 minutes.

On this program, I can spent 1 1/2 hours in the gym and not even feel it. My muscles feel denser and have a different look to them.


Cons:

Having to dial back the intensity.

I tried full body workouts before, but I think I gave up on them a little too quickly. I plan to stick with this routine for another month at least to see how it goes.

Cool and creative username. I love the book. If you like Heavy Metal, Mastodon's "Leviathan" album is based on Moby Dick.

Good numbers, will be following.

And so begins week five of full body workout. I follow this Steeves Reeves workout with only very slight variation. (Example: I do leg presses on day two instead of hack squats). I had to lower the weight during the first month to adjust to the new frequency, and have made mistakes along the way by trying to add volume and an extra training day.

I find that the workouts are going well as long as I strictly adhere to three days a week and don't exceed one exercise per body part.

Today, my lifts were back on par with what I did on a split.

I added weight to the bar.

Bench Press

205X6
205X4
185X6
185X5
135X8

Standing Barbell Shoulder Press

115X4
105X5
105X6
105X6

Bent Over Row

205X7
205X7
205X6
225X6
225X5

Barbell Curl

115X4
105X5
105X4
95X6
95X5

Skull Crusher

60X8
70X6
70X5

Parallel Squat

205X8
225X6
225X6
275X5

Standing Calf Raise (Machine)

215X10
215X10

Note: Dead lifts are done twice a week on this routine. Monday I keep it lite, Friday I go heavy.

135X10
135X10
135X10

Bicycle Crunches (to failure).

Nutrition:

Breakfast: four whole eggs, two eggo waffles, pork sausage

Two scoops whey protein (a few hours after breakfast)

Lunch: Chicken fried steak, baked potato macaroni and cheese

Dinner: White beans and rice, baked chicken breast

Also post-workout shake, two scoops whey protein

Supplementation:

10 dissipated liver tablets

3000 mg glutamine, pre and post-workout

How are you finding all that volume each workout? It looks pretty tough.

Need to get me some 'dissipated liver' tabs.
