DannyCap's Training Journal

Post by dannycap on Mon Apr 21, 2008 6:27 am

Hi

I am going to start posting my training log as to track my progrees

Like I have said before I have been away from the Gym for about a year and I am reallly looking to loose some unwanted fat that i gained during my lazy time away. The aim is to cut my waist from 34" to 32" by Mid June. Then I can start bulking Very Happy My current split looks like this

Day1- Pull (Back,Biceps,Legs)
Day2- Cardio
Day3- Push(Chest,Triceps,Shoulders,)
Day4-Cardio
Day5-Pull
Day6-Cardio + Abs
Day7-Rest

I will be aiming to work within the rep range of 12-15 3 sets. However I do enjoy pyramid training so with compound exercises I will usullay use the following reps 15,10,8 and then maybe an extra set 6 reps. I try to keep to a minute or less inbetween sets and try to keep the motion 2 seconds concentric and 4 secsonds ecentric.

The exercises I am currently using are

Chest- Chest Press, Assisted Dips,Fly Machine
Triceps- Pushdown Machine,Dumbell Tricep Extensions
Shoulders- Arnold Press or Machine Sholder Press, Lateral Raise
Back- Assisted Pullups,Barbell Rows, Lat Pulldowns
Biceps- Barbell Curls, Hammer Curls
Legs- Leg Press,Leg Extension

I will post up my diet as soon as I get it straightned out. And I will hopefully post my training daily (apart from Sundays)

Any advice greatly appreciated

Looking at todays training I think I need to add at least one more exercise for biceps probably Barebell/EZ Barbell curls Does anybody have any suggestion on which exercise could be better EZ bar or barbell curls? Should I also add preacher curls I understand preacher curls are not really an exercise for mass rather shaping.

Hello matey - the back / biceps split looks good, however I would add a standing barbell curl to your arm routine. The barbell curl is the best exercise you can do for adding mass to your biceps. My arms grew slowly for years until I made the barbell curl my primary biceps exercise. Perform this first, 3 sets of 15,12,10 reps each bearing in mind you are on a cutting routine. Then perform your dumbell curls, maybe only 2 sets of these as if you use strict form with the barbell curls your arms will be burning and the biceps are a small muscle. They will already be warm from your back workout so it depends on how they feel as to how many sets of dumbell curls you then do. If you are feeling strong you could slso consider supersetting the barbell curls with dumbell curls - 12 reps of a stric barbell curl followed by a light weight dumbell curl for as many reps as you can get - you should be failing at around 10. Only use this technique though when your progress slows. Let us know how you get on.

Looks good - a small point, I personally dont train forearms. Forearms will get hit when you do Barbell curls and hammer curls and they are a small bodypart. I would save your energy for the core movements like squats, presses, chin ups, dips and dont worry about the smaller parts at the mo. Just a thought! If you have enough energy then go heavier on the barbell curl but keep your form strict. Try standing with your back against a wall so it doesent move during the exercise. Very Happy
