I thought it'd be beneficial to forum members to learn from each other's workout schedule. I work out with the principle that I hit every major muscle once each day, three times a week. I don't enjoy much leg work because of a pulled hamstring from several years ago, and it has left (semi?) permanent damage on my right leg. I also do cardio after each work out, usually on a bike, or if I feel really good, some running. The whole thing takes about 60-70 minutes, plus 20-30 for cardio afterward. There have been some noticeable gains on both strength and mass (my gf loves my bigger boobies
). Once I'm satisfied with a certain body part, I'll deemphasize it and focus on another. The only down side to this so far has been that a slim suit jacket I used to wear comfortably is now very tight. I might have to stop doing this soon because I can't afford a new suit wardrobe. Here's mine, let's see what you got. Day 1 Bench Press DB Flyes T-Bar Rows Incline DB Curls Pullover & Press DB Military Press Sit-Ups Squats Day 2 Incline Press Lat Pulldowns 1 Hand Cable Curls Pulley Pushdowns DB Side Laterals DB Front Raises Leg Raise Lying Leg Curls Day 3 Decline Press Hyperextensions Seated Rows BB Preacher Curls BB Tricep Extention DB Bent Laterals DB Side Bends Calf Raises BTW, I've been using "The Gold's Gym Training Encyclopedia" to design my exercises for several years. It also has workout schedules by some of the old pros. Simple, but highly informative.

Here's something interesting I read in Men's Health. They did a survey of how sexy women find their men when they are performing certain activities on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is the least sexy and 10 is the sexiest. Lifting weights scored a 6. Yoga scored a 1. I wonder why.

I'm currently doing a full body workout, three days a week.

Squats, leg presses, leg curls, leg extensions, walking lunges, calves...

Bench press, pulldowns, shoulder press, rows, shrugs, skullcrushers, bicep curls, triceps, hammer curls and various ab exercises... usually 3-4 sets of each, 8-10 reps, going very heavy on the weight.

That's pretty much a typical workout. I was recording everything in a journal, but lately I've just been mixing it up and trying to work everything to exhaustion.

I need to mix in some sort of martial arts into my routine. It sucks that there isn't a decent place to study where I am now.

What do you compete in?

I'm kind of screwed on lifting for a while. Goobered my wrist up skating last weekend and it's still really sketchy. When I'm on a regular schedule, I do two relatively abbreviated full-body workouts, one on Sunday and one on Thursday, with basic compound lifts. I believe the only isolation lifts I do are curls and weighted crunches.

On my other days, I try to get in 20 minutes at a good pace on the Airdyne, or a "pushup pyramid," or some extra weighted crunches, basically just something each day to count as "active rest." I also walk a lot, including up and down the 9 flights of stairs to my office, across a few blocks to court, etc. And I skate on weekends and some evenings.

mizanation, I trained BJJ/sub grappling (mostly no-gi) from about summer 2002 until early 2005. No competitions, no MMA, just a hobby. Didn't get in as often as I should have. I pretty much suck, although I'm ridiculously Gumby-like.

There's a gym with a good regional reputation in the city where I live now, but I've been getting a lot of tattoo work on my arms lately, so I'm out of commission on grappling until I'm done with that, which may be a while.
Once I'm finished with the forearms, I will probably train muay thai to stay active until I can start grappling again. Right now, I'd just as soon not tie up or block anything while my forearms are continually healing. I really enjoy BJJ, but I'm very bad about letting other things take priority, which is why I still suck.

sounds like you do a lot of different things, goblin.

that's cool, same with me. a few of my friends are world-class level mma/sub-wrestling competitors, but that's all they do. i'm no where near that level, but i have a ton more interests. sometimes they complain about how one-dimensional their lives are, but you and i will never have that problem!


of course, we'll also probably never be ADCC champs, though.


muay thai might not be a good idea if your tats are healing. you'll block a lot of punches and kicks with your forearms.

i'm actually thinking about entering into the world of tattoo art, myself. i have a friend who's awesome. he says he'll ink me up next time i see him.

staying active is just as important as working out, i think.

I've done Bikram Yoga before and it's actually quite tough! very good for toning the muscles.
