I was thinking of running his 4-day intermediate program that stretches across 20 weeks.  The variations on the Big 3 intrigue me but worried the volume may kill me.

They aren't better than Rehband per se, just different. Might get a few extra pounds of rebound out of the SBDs vs the Rehbands. They became a thing when they became legal for raw competition where sleeves are allowed (e.g. IPF)

The reasoning for all the variations is that specific weaknesses in the main lifts will be resolved faster and better by doing variations that target those weaknesses. 

 

I haven't looked closely at the 4-day program but the volume is quite high IIRC. However, it seems like some people think the Sheiko routines are quite light on the other hand, with less max-effort work and lower percentages in the some rep ranges in comparison to some other programs.

 

But if you come from a significantly lower volume or frequency (like not benching 3-4x a week), it could be wise to start with one of the 3 day programs. One guy in my club runs that despite qualifying for the CMS program and he has made very good gains on it.

Met an obscenely aesthetic girl today in the library, like 9/10 aesthetics. Got talking, turns out she's bipolar, very very ill, will likely need a kidney transplant soon and has a script for morphine. For what it's worth i'm also diagnosed as bipolar (but type 2 because not cray), but I don't have any treatment except occasional psychiatry when I want it. This is going to go so horrifically badly. She's coming over thursday.

Did not PR in the bench press today, very annoyed.

220ish still have abs, obviously not cut to pieces, but i look a lot bigger then when i was shredded. I think my traps have grown from pulling twice a week for fairly high reps.

They are quite skinny to be fair, quads look pretty big in shorts, but thats just insertions and my calves are tiny. Haha she's coming over to "bake" something with me. Forever asking girls to come over and cook or bake with me, that inoffensive way to get girls to come over. Making oreo cup cakes or some shit. Will get pics as per usual.

Lol. I need to work on my baking game...

Never thought I'd say that...

Got yelled at for slamming weights again today. Wasn't even slamming them. Sounds like there is a supervisor that everybody hates because the guy who came up to me was very sympathetic. She doesn't even lift. It's like a highway patrol officer without a driver's license. Also failed my bench and deadlift, and I'm on a fucking reset on deadlifts. God dammit.

In good news, I finally hit 315x5x3 after restarting Starting Strength in late June. I originally ran SS from May-November last year, got my squat work sets from 105 to 280, stopped to run RFL, lost 15 lbs., stopped lifting, picked up SS again in late June squatting 155.

Huge milestone ruined by the shitty gym supervisor, shitty bench, and shitty deadlift. 315 was my goal and I don't want to fat fuck myself, so I probably won't go much farther than this. My bench sucks, though, and I really want to get to where I'm not benching baby weight any more before I try to cut. 200x5x3 (225 calculated 1RM) would make me very happy, but I don't think I'll get there. I need to get down to the low teens (15% minimum, 12% ideally; I'm around 25% right now) then onward and upward.

Leaving for vacation this week for 2 weeks means no gym for the duration. Prolly gonna do pause push ups, pause dips, and pull ups. When I get back, I'll see how much of my gains I'll have lost. Decided today I'm gonna give my back 3 more weeks to heal. Today = no pain but I'm not taking any chances. Did 205 5x5 with 2 second pause bench today. Felt pretty damn good.

George Leeman saying his friend, Vince Urbanks brother doesn't have godly genetics because he only weighed 185 at 6'3" untrained and missed a 315 pull the first time he lifted. Lel alright mate. Don't give a fuck how hard you train if you pull 550lb within 4 months of training that was genetics, there is only so much you can train and diet.

fuji looks like a skinny shit. sucks being tall.
post #48478 of 57259
Frustrated as fuck with bench. Everything is moving up like clockwork but bench is damn near moving backwards. What gives

Yeah I really wish I was like 5'6" then all my dreams would come true.

Haha yeah, I weigh more than @GraphicNovelty, but I look like a twig next to him.

 

The quest for 16 inch gunz continues. I think I just hit/passed 15 for this go-around. Hoping to still make 16 by the new year.


Question for you guys though... Is frequency better than a dedicated day? I.e. am I better off dedicating a day to arms and doing 2-3 exercises for bis/tris or better off doing one 5x10 superset for both 3-4 times a week? Potentially two exercises on some days.
