"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

After a stint of jrep/Matrix style training I've decided to up the frequency a bit and go with lower reps NTF for a few sets. Still very abbreviated though.

A) Front Squat
Romanian Deadlift
Calf Raise

B) Bench press
Chin Up

All done for 3x5 after warm ups, alternating workouts every 48hrs. Focus is on getting as strong as possible on all the above lifts.

This should make Marcrph happy :)

Whatever tickles my fancy... whatever challenges me and I feel will challenge me. The sky is the limit at age 46. No set 'routine,' as the term routine means, that which is ordinary or custom. I can't imagine when life is so short.

Well I fractured a rib when I crashed into something working in the yard and a blood vessel broke in my eye later on so trying to work around that has been a blast. Right now I'm tired of set routines so like Brian I sort of do what fancies me at the moment.

That's usually one or two sets of about roughly 8--10 exercises in slow and steady form to failure once a week.I alternate exercises now and then for certain body parts to break the boredom of doing the same thing over and over again.

Things only become monotonous and `boring` when they don't work.

Josh,

How often do you do each of these workouts and/or how do you alternate them?

Thank you to all who posted. Your routines look very interesting and I definitely have questions. Will probably get back to you when I have more time.

Other than that, good luck and great job guys!

Boredom is a result of a mental aspect... and if a person is a Type A personality, for example, it takes more to maintain mental motivation than it would for others. I fall into that category. The Principle of Individualism.

You mean that in every aspect of the life? I tend do disagree. You can do something good but have a higher standard, wanting to raise the bar. So, monotonous can still get you, even if you do something that "works".

So, obviously your statement has nothing to do with real life and is only to support your own position.

I think I have seen that before from you...

Brian that `mental aspect` of motivation is served by enthusiasm , & enthusiasm is gained by ongoing achievement.
Lack of achievement/progress will result in lack of enthusiasm which compounds the lack of achievement/progress.

Individualism does not require principles , else it is not individualism !

I like training with the same basic gymnastic moves and heavy free weights; it's not boring it's a lot of fun.

I've built an Anderson squatting machine to put a focus back on heavy partials now that I've healed from a football injury. Anderson's machine isn't fancy but it works like magic.

I see athletes in the gym changing it up all the time doing some kind of aerobethon for metabolic conditioning but not really pushing themselves to lift heavy. Maybe the answer isn't something new to maintain enthusiasm but a focus on the basics to get results.

I hope you dont feel lectured, its not my reason to say this, but entusiasm isent the engine to motivation. It might make it easier sometimes though.

You could say that motivation has 4 different levels and to understand which one who drives you will make it easier to stay motivated.

To understand motivation, you first has to understand the word though.

I find that even when things work out perfectly if I do the same thing too often I get bored with it. It's like the difference in listening to a favorite song once in a while and listening to it over and over again. Soon you get sick of it no matter how good it is.

After a break from it for a while the pleasure of listening to it returns. As far as exercise goes there's an abundance of methods and machines that can give good results and I enjoy using different machines and rep schemes etc from time to time. I have about 15 or so different Nautilus machines at home and I like to alternate from one back working machine to another and so forth for variety.

My machines are like friends, and I feel obligated to workout on most all of them once in a while lest they get mad from neglect, ha ha..

Jonas there are lots of `theory` on motivation ( more than 4 ) , but the common denominator in all is `want` & reward , and in order to `get` one must be enthusiastic/driven or `want` it enough to achieve.
Lack of reward or achievement will always dull enthusiasm and so motivation itself is tempered also.

When was the last time your training ( as that is the topic ) was perfect and your progress was ongoing?

You have posted on here often enough about your lack of gains and how you could change things up.

There is a lot of theories about everything IMO. This happens to be a subject from where I earn my living and because of that I have penetrated this subject deep. That dosent automaticly right of course.

I would say youre not that far away but what you describe is what you call "inflow motivation". Even stronger motivation is found in "outflow motivation".

Its not all about beeing right all the time, sometimes you can learn from other.

`Twiggy` you are what 5` 8" ? .. versus my 5` 6" .... not much of a difference.
My arms 17" ( cold ) yours 15"-15 1/2" ?

Legs ? ... mine are bigger , more defined and of superior shape/proportion than yours even when YOU claim to be in competition shape ( see your pics ) .
In fact Id say I am muscularly more proportionate & bigger overall than you `Twiggy`

You have nothing .... really !

I don't have a set routine.

I tend to always have either a stiff-legged deadlift, bench press, overhead press, or Squat in my routine, and tend to stick to a either push or pull.

At the moment I am going through a phase where I do single sets on the big compounds and work my way up to the biggest weight I can handle, and combining that with multiple submaximal sets done in quick succession.
