"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."

I?ll keep a log here. Feel free to comment.

I?m using an ABC rotation right now, brief full body workouts. For a couple of lifts I?m going to hold the load and increase the reps. Pulls are one set, everything else is done rest-pause style.

16 Sep
DL 365 x 12
DB OHP 70 x 8, 3
BB Curl 120 x 9, 4
Total time 26:34

I would have been happy with 10 reps on DL. Glad I recorded the set. Total time includes putting shoes, warmup and setup.

Thanks all. I?d like to see more logs as well so figured i it only makes sense to have one.

That was only the second time I?ve videoed myself twice. The first time I was able to fix a squat form issue. This time it was the first time I?ve seen myself pull and I was really happy with my form. And I captured a PR goal I had set for myself.

I think there is some real value in sharing the video.
- I can get feedback on form.
- I learned how to push in a program that AJ personally influenced. I train alone and with free weights so I can?t do forced reps and there are safety concerns that don?t exist with machines. But the videos will let others see what I think is the effort needed to make HIT work and others can share their opinions.
- There have been a lot of calls for ?proof? on this site. My lifts aren?t that impressive but I do what I say I do. My first post should settle that question.

great video, is there any reason why you don't use an over/under grip during the lifts...i would hate to see the weight slip from your hands

I use double overhand for all of my warmup sets up to 315 without straps. After that I?ll go alternate grip for heavy work. All warmups over 315 are alternating grip and I?ll switch the pronated/supinated hand each set. I use double overhand and straps for high rep work. I feel a lot stress in the biceps when supinated. Switching hands or using double overhand balances this.

I?m not worried about a strap giving way, not at 400 lbs or so. No one else uses my straps, they are clean and when they get frayed they get replaced.

When deadlifting I also do most of my warm ups with ovwrhand grip, switching to ovee and under for the work sets. This gives me some decent grip work and reduces potwntial riak of mixed grip.

Treadmill run
.25 mile walk, jog
2 miles - 13:28
.25 mile cool down

This felt harder than expected. Then I saw the incline was set at 1.5%, usually have it at 1%.

Nice, looks like you like Dr. Ken's 50%. Ive done them in the past but with less frequecy than you.

My setup looked just like yours except it was 2* a week with two routines.

Things are moving along ok right now so I don't want to mess things. But I'll be keeping an eye on your log.

I rather watch people train than showing their physiques. I find it more inspiring watching someone pushing themselves to their limit than a person showing an 18" arm or clear cut abs etc.

Keep the videos coming. Turpin's videos are very inspiring as well.

Yes, I had a Dr Ken article about 50% sets but hadn?t intentionally plan them. This just came about and works for me. Positive failure on the first set and then whatever it takes on the second.

I?ll use a two workout rotation as well. Both work well but I like that a three way rotation gives extra time between DL sessions. Good luck with your work.

I only posted a pic on my old log on my arm measuring 18" as a visual response to a naysayer who advised people to stay clear of the type of training I was doing...inspite of the fact I never once advocated on my log that anyone should ever train like me.

Good stuff CD, have been following, enjoyed the deadlift video, given the total tonnage lifted in the time frame, your breathing was pretty good. Goes to show the additional cardio work helps.

Rob,

I wasn't referencing yourself (just in case you thought I were). It was a random statement and 18" is an impressively big arm. I wasn't aware of your picture post. Wish mine were that big....sigh!!!!....Lol!!!

Kind Regards!

Not at all mate, i was only saying why i put should a pic up, i shouldve stated what i meant better. Completely agree, i prefer looking at pics or watching vids of good training.
On side note, my arms are now down almost an inch, i stopped nearly all direct arm work and lost 20lb...quality not quanity.
