    the 4 minutes rest i get makes me impatient but when your doing heavy weight and compound lifts like a (deadlift/squat/bench) day your Central Nervous System is shot, you need the rest in between to give it your all.

    Damn. I never knew that. Even when I would go from like 275 lbs on the bench to 300 lbs. on the bench (when I could hit 300) I don't think I rested 4 minutes.

    But tbh, while you working the other muscle group in a super set. Like if I'm doing bench and lawnmowers for example...while I'm doing the lawnmowers doesn't that count as "rest time" towards my bench?

    So say I hit the bench, then hit the lawnmowers, then wait a minute or 2 then back to the bench is that sufficient @yayo?

    Man most people when starting GM's are cautious to put more weight and it's because it feels kinda funny like it could fuck up your back. But I did them before so my muscle memory or whatever is decent. Just starting out on GM's I would definitely suggest going light until you get the form and balance down then gradually go up a little. My homeboy I used to workout with was scared to do them shits with just dimes on, tbh. And he was a strong dude when it came to shoulders / bench / arms.

    You don't wanna fuck your back up!

    i have no idea man lol, i never really lift weights and back then when i did i jsut did whatever, when u hear the science behind it then u understand why there's certain amount of rest time n shit. bench is one i dont need much time regardless the weight i push but when im doing deadlifts and squats n shit, where it's multi-joint exercises with heavier weight than usual u have to make sure your body is rested for each rep, your CNS gets worked out too and plus the risk of injury rushing in between reps on such a hard movement. mostly the rest time isn eeded for very heavy weight and for your CNS, from my understanding of the stuff i read and @frankwhite1

    this got me absolutely pumped

    1: 2 mile outside bike ride
    2: pushup/pullup superset, 30 seconds rest
    10-8, 10-7, 10-5, 10-4
    3: chinup/20lb hammercurl superset, 30 seconds rest (major cheating on curls)
    3-25, 2-25, 2-25, 3-25
    4: 15-15-25 dips off furniture (feet on ground in front of me)

    +10 pushups for good measure

    shirt was glued to me after this. 30 second rests are brutality.

    I'm with you on that. When I go heavy on deadlifts or squats I usually spend a little bit of time just mentally preparing myself tbh. Like thinking "Man this shit heavy as fuck...but I got it...I think...I can do it". And making sure my grip and balance right and the bar is dry and shit like that. I think I spend the rest time just getting ready to go when it's heavy on DL's and squats. :funny:

    I couldn't do 15 properly to save my life right now, tbh. I'm doing like 7, 6, 7, 7, 6 on the pull-up right now. That's that wide grip and slowly all the way down and up.


    Gotta miss my workout today though. Extra hours at work called my name, tbh. Kinda disappointed but tomorrow I'm going to make up for it for sure.

    Pullups has always been easy to me..for whatever reason I don't lose too much strength in my lats and back even when I stop working out...and I'm a long guy, it should be my worst exercise..

    The bench on the other hand...I can get up in weight fast w/ muscle memory, but if I take a few months off I plummet back to noob status...I can not maintain strength in the bench for my life...

    I wasn't able to finish my workout cus the gym's closed..

    [​IMG]

    I went for the 1 x 120 kg bench in the end, but failed

    My chest wasn't 100% recovered from my last chest workout, but since my back hurts a little bit, this was the only muscle I could train today

    Next chest workout I'll focus more on 4-6 rep range
    Tomorrow leg day if my back feels better

    I finished my leg workout...

    Shot, Re-shot, Lift(Essentially lunging with the left leg forward, then right leg forward, then standard squat = 1 rep)

    215 x 10
    235 x 6
    255 x 6
    275 x 5

    Leg Press

    450 x 10(slow)
    540 x 10(slow)
    630 x 10(slow)

    Straight Leg Deadlift

    165 x 10
    215 x 10
    255 x 8

    Leg Extentions Superset w/ Hamstring Curls for 3 sets...both cable curls, I apologize but I didn't pay attention to the weight

    Legs were acting retarded at this point, my knees were giving out on every step....

    Multiply kg by 2.2 and you get lbs. (I hope).


    Speaking of which, phase 1 is now complete; 4 days into hell month & I've reached goal weight (66.8kg/147.27lbs).
    [​IMG]

    Had an overall workout, did about 60 pullups, and a day dedicated to dips & one handed pushups (died @30th, :funny:).
