Hey Skinny I dunno what you do, but when I used to do calf raises I used to bend my knees towards relaxation of the calves so I could get the full ROM, and then straighten as I contracted. More natural movement that way too, similar to jumping, and easier to balance.

Exactly.

My calf raises are not "good form" in the textbook sort of way. Mine are very ballistic (almost like jumping), though I don't quite get a full ROM because I'm moving fast instead of slowly going thru the entire range.

My squats are probably not good form, either. Also done rather quickly, not full range "ass to grass" style - more like jumping or a quick take-off. I modified fighter squats (not sure the proper name) that we did from years ago when I was boxing & wrestling.

Monday (April 11):

TG warm-up
light weight
60 pull-ups
60 chin-ups
150 calf raises
200 squats
200 sit-ups

saturday: don't remember i think i rode the bike for a while or maybe it rained
sunday morning: don't remember, maybe i rode the bike, maybe not

sunday evening: went to the pool, was in the water for a bit over 1.5 hours. would have stayed longer if not for two things:

1 - the pool closed for the night
2 - chlorine started to bother my eyes

Yeah well...., not all of it is muscle. Only just went RPD. I'm nowhere near fat but not ripped either. RPD helps a lot however I should reduce my raw milk intake as it is fattening. My goal is ~200lbs, witout loosing muscle off course. To be reached in 2 months. Should be doable.

I'm trying to cut down my carbs slowly but still need quite a lot of carbs prior to working out otherwise truely intense exercise is impossible. Used to eat a large pasta dish for lunch than work out late afternoon. Now I eat ~500gr of grapes and an apple with 0,5ltr milk works for me. Non workout days are rather low carb ~50gr.

Just curious. What's your goal with those workouts? They are nowhere near intense enough for muscular development so I gues you do them for cardio? or to burn callories?

Geez...everybody's a critic.

Goals? I like to move, I like to work out, I like to sweat. I like to be physically available for whatever life has to offer, and thus far these sorts of workouts have served me well. Very well.

Not intense? You talking about that particular work-out above or all the workouts I've posted? To each his own, but I like doing 50-100 pull-ups & 200-1000 sit-ups & tabata stair sprints as well as biking & swimming across the lake. Intensity? Well, I suppose it depends on how you're using the term "intense".


Wednesday - light work-out:

75 pull-ups
75 chin-ups
150 squats
400 calf raises

Tomorrow back to the heavy bag!

i'm actually with you here Skinny.  the traditional train one muscle group a day and kill it up mentality i think is whack.  i am more inclined towards having two full-body workouts a day at a leisurely intensity.  i used to work out so hard in the gym people were waiting for me to break my back or something but that was foolish - that's not a way to build a foundation of health and fitness.

As I sad just curious no critism intended. By intense I mean percentage of momentairy ability. no doubt your workout are hard, probably even brutal. When you can do more than 20 reps you move towards aerobic exercise, you do not ask the muscle to perform near its peak performance. If you would the reps would be lower. Not asking a muscle to work within its reserve anaerobic ability means no growt stimulation because your muscle can easily do what you ask. Stil great cardio though thats what I meant.

I hate the mainstream 1muscle a day low intense workouts. As you could have seen in my post my workouts is full body very heavy very intense and very short. Try doing 8 exexises to complete muscular failure in 20min and you  know what I mean. This kind of workout stimulates all 3 kinds of condition: muscular strengt, cardiovascular condition, metabolic condition. No amound of work can substitute intensity.

WED: went to gym.

did some power cleans, some chin ups and some cable crossovers for chest. 

also ran about half a mile on a treadmill at around 9 mph.  i started from about 7.5 mph and kept increasing the speed to 9.3 mph then when i started feeling a bit of soreness in my abs i hit stop.  that's the way i usually run now - i keep increasing speed until i feel that my body has received the stimulus for adaptation then i just hit stop.

Oh, no offense taken, man. I was being somewhat tongue in cheek. Your work-outs are BEAST. Would kill me to even attempt that kinda weight.

Good point regarding peak performance of the muscle(s) under stress. I actually need to employ a bit of that. I dropped heavy weights a coupla years ago after a few injuries. Most of that is cleared up, so....

Quote from: proteus

I shoulda been listening to this bit of advice yesterday. I didn't work just one muscle group, but I went a bit too intense on the legs and am REALLY feeling it today! Probably woulda been OK had I not added the stairs to the end of the workout, but.....

Testosterone is going well, I have more primary sex characteristics present like having to shave every day or else I'll have  a beard and my girlfriend will get annoyed. Harder erections as well. I feel my situation is directly related to sleep. When I dont sleep well, my testosterone plummets, which is why I cant wait til summer when I can sleep 10 hours a day. Whether I have high T or not, I always seem to have an easy time putting on muscle and getting stronger if I eat and sleep enough. I speculate that part of this is that my receptor sites for T are wide open in my muscles and my muscles readily take in the T so when I get blood tested it looks like I have low T but I dont. I got a 24 hour urine testosterone test and it came out over the top of the range, which means my T receptor sites are wide open and my androgens are being well utilized in my body. This is a fairly new recognized phenomenon, which I am currently studying.

Yep, was getting to that way of thinking after reading American Africans have the same levels of T that whites. They have more receptors though.

This weeks (tomorrow)

Deadlift only.

New PB everyweek (last week 291.5 pounds) me at 154 pounds I think. Aiming for 2.5 bodyweight is this a reasonable goal?

Ps I don't add the bar weight, is this the deal?

2.5 bodyweight is realistic IMO but not at 154 lbs.  maybe at 180 lbs. 

i mean there's probably about 60 lbs of weight in you that cannot be used towards lifting - stuff like bones, brain, heart, skin etc.  so instead of figuring 154 x 2.5 it's more like ( 154 - 60 ) x 3.5 or so.  these numbers will work better in terms of bodyweight x 2.5 when your bodyweight is greater because the 60 lbs ( brains etc ) will remain constant.
