    I have been doing the Body Beast program from Team Beachbody, minus the cardio so far - even though that program only does cardio once per week anyway. I lift 5 days a week. My basic plan is to lift and gain some size for the first 4 weeks then I think I'm going to use Shawn T's new Focus T25 workout for the last 4 weeks to tone. T25 just released and I've been jonesin to try it out. I'm not much of a cardio person but I do it pretty regularly, just not generally as a complete program. It combines cardio with body weight training to get similar results as Insanity but in less time.

    So, that's what's up with me right now. Already seeing good progress. Hoping to have some good results by the end of the contest.

    Nah, just felt it'd be redundant posting my daily workout - since it's pretty much the same 6 days out of the week (as far as the gym is concerned).

    Did an 8hrs mountain hike yesterday (Ojstrica, 2350m/7k ft above see level).

    Damn @ 8 hours. Props @GaLaTeA.

    Al I've been doing is pretty much power lifting to gain muscle mass. Not much endurance or cardio at all. Whole different ballgame.

    By the way I'm up to 177 from 162 since June when I "re-dedicated" myself to the gym, tbh. Bench coming back up pretty quick. Deadlift back up around 400 (locked out 395 last lower back day at the gym). Definitely alot of progress. Stomach still pretty cut up to.

    Ty. :)

    One thing that's great about this challenge is that every single person is focusing on something particular as far as workouts are concerned to reach that desired end goal.

    Keep up the great work!

    @zyclon B gas im not used to those 5 sets, those kill me and the explosive ones drain me, happened at squats and now bench. I replaced Face Pulls with hammer curl/db lateral raise, not sure why i did lol my grip was slipping at the end for BB shrugs.

    my only issue with this program is that it's time consuming, it's alot more exercises/sets than what im used 2 and im too drain to decrease rest between sets.

    i know, they are hard to get through since it takes a while. if you have time, stick to the 5 sets. otherwise, go to 4 sets. the point is to get the reps, even if you have to lighten up. the only sets you need to stay heavy on is the main lift. everthing else is explosive, form, and reps.

    your rest between sets should be 1-1.5 minutes between the main lifts and 30sec between auxillary lifts. if you stick to that timeframe, the workout should take 45-60 minutes tops.

    Lateral raise is ok, curls...eh.

    try timing your intervals. you're gonna be smoked and use lighter weights, but it'll help your main lift, which is the whole point. focus on reps and burning out on all lifts aside from main lift.

    im pushing too much weight in the assistance work outs, it's hard for me to even break 10 reps at times. next time im going to drop the weight and go for the higher end range and focus on my rest time. im going to stick with the 5 sets, i like em alot just not used to em.
    thank u again homie

    lol yeah a & b means superset

    hold DB's by your side, squat down and jump up.

    2, 0, 1, 1 means 2 second pause at the bottom, explode up, pause 1 second upon landing, 1 second down

    now if i do pullups doing 2, 1, 1, 1 - it's 2 seconds up, pause for 1 second, 1 second down, pause for 1 second.

    fuckin hate lunges, but the front squats - especially heel elevated front squats (forgot to say that's what i did) - are fuckin horrendous. worst/best exercise ever.

    anytime. definitely want to aim for the high reps and get them all, so even if you're throwin up 35lbs on the incline, you go for reps, form and explosiveness. those exercises are just to target the muscles that will benefit your main lift the most.

    the more you do it, the more weight you'll be able to do. soon you'll be like "shit, i can do 50lbs 15 times and then 45lbs 5. how did i ever do 20lbs for 20?"
