I'm thinking about lifting weights again...
    #769256 - 02/17/15 10:43 AM (1 year, 9 months ago)

Back in the day I'd stretch then hit the weights in the morning and then go about my day. No extras, just water.

Being 2015 I'm sure shit has changed. Is there anything out there I could pick up that might assist me? Certain vitamins or powders?

I use preworkout powders. N.O. Explode, literally if I feel like shit and there's no way that I'm going to the gym, one scoop and 20 minutes later I am dancing around my room and then can get at least an hour of lifting hard.  I restrict my cardio because there are several different types of stimulants.  I've used several others include HDPump and C4.  I'm thinking of switching to C4, it seems to give me just as much energy without affecting my mental status or giving me the jitters.

My boy who was in the Marine Corps with me put me on an excellent body building routine, he used to Power lift competitively but got out of it trying to avoid injury. 

If you'd like the routine I can post it on this thread.  I've never really gone on a no-shit fully structured routine as in everyday/ rest day, is figured out and it has helped an immeasurable amount, I'm actually in the best shape of my life out of this program and it's fun as hell, there's not a single exercise that I really dread.

C4 is a good preworkout

Get some high quality protein - optimum nutrition is the best bang for the buck and widely acknowledged and being the best standard protein

creatine is cheap and very useful

splits is a good way to switch body parts up and give rest time

something like

push day (chest/shoulder/triceps)
pull day (back/biceps)
legs day

if you are trying to put on muscle, don't mix up too much cardio with your lifting regiment. it's counter productive.

figure out weather you are trying to bulk or tone.

Really just tone. I was never into beefing up. I liked feeling and looking great.

The whole point of this workout is to really nail MUSCLE CONCENTRATION, basically taking a metal and visionary approach so that when you are doing these exercises you very actively try to feel for the muscle you're working out and isolate it and use 100% of its function.
Starting with Medium to Medium Heavy Weight, then after 4 cycles of
workout, switch to Heavy weight and drop rep count to 6-8.  After that, mix and match Days, or do "2 a days" to keep muscles confused and working different.


EVERYDAY I warm up with 5-10 minutes of low-impact cardio

DAY 1: CHEST/ABs
Incline Dumbell 4x12, Dropset 1x6
Flat Dumbell Press 4x12, Dropset 1x6
Pec Fly 4x10 Dropset 1x9
low cable fly 5x10
Fly Machine 5x10
Hex Press on Incline 4x10
Decline Dumbell Press 4xx10
Middle Cable fly 4x10
Abs- Do Whatever you like to do for abs and murder yourself, I highly recommend Front/side planks 30-60 seconds until muscle failure and sit-ups on an exercise ball because I've had injections in my hips they kind of suck and my back sucks too so it's the best way for me to knock out some traditional ab stuff

DAY 2: ARMS
EZ bar curls 4x10 Dropset 1x8
Alternate Dumbell curls 4x10 Dropset 1x8
Single Arm Preacher curls 4x10 Dropset 1x8
EZ Bar Cable Curls/Single Arm Cable Curls 6x10
Straigh bar Curls 4x14 Dropset 1x20
Hammer Curls --SUPERSET WITH-- Single Arm Tricep Extensions 4x10---4x10
Tri Kickbacks --SUPERSET WITH-- Single Arm Cable Curls 4x10---4x10
Rope Pushdowns --SUPERSET WITH-- Single Arm Rerverse Pulldown 4x10---4x6

REST DAY 3

DAY 4:LEGS/CHEST
Leg Extrension 4x12 Dropset 1x20
Incline Leg Press 4x15
Hack Squat Machine 4x15
Prone leg curls 4x10
Barbell Squats 4x10
(my knees are fucked up so I do not do traditional squats to prevent injury, I put pin exercise ball between my back and wall and squat with that support until I burnout but before muscle failure)
Seated Leg Curls 4x15
Calf extension on Incline Leg Press Machine 4x20
Smith Machine Calf extension (stand on board or plates) 4x20
Leg Abduction/Aduction Machine 5x20/ 5x20
Chest: Choose 2 lower pectoral chest exercises and burn out with 2x20

DAY 6 SHOULDERS
Smith Shrugs 4x12 Dropset 1x6
Behind BAck Smith Shrugs 4x12 Dropset 1x6
Dumbell Shrugs 4x12, Dropset 1x30
Shoulder Press Machine 1x20, 1x18, 1x16, 1x14, 1x12, 1x10, 1x6 (Add weight each time where the 1x6 should be around 85% of your max)
Single Arm Lateral Cable RAises 4x10
Single Arm Rear Lateral Cable Raises 4x10
Dumbell or Barbell Front Raises 4x10
Seated Side Dumbell Raises 4x10
Upright Row 4x10

REST DAY 7

DAY 8 BACK/BICPES
Hyper Extensions 4x10
Bent-Over Smith Row (Underhand grip) 1x20, 1x15x 1x12 1x8 Increase weight each set
Seated Cable Row (Wide Grip) 2x14, 2x10
Row Machine 2x10, 1x14, 1x12
Lat Pulldown 2x10, 1x14, 1x12
High Row 2x12, 2x10, 1x25
Lat Pushdown 4x12

Few Notes are feel free to mix and match and play with the rep counts, but stick to the number of sets.  Keeping to this schedule for almost 2 months I've noticed a massive increase in muscle size and my strength is starting to sky rocket.  After you get too comfortable that's when you implement switching the rep count and percentage of weight.

This routine maximizes muscle growth and injury prevention, that's why you don't see deadlift, bench press, or the powerlifting stuff that people love to max out on.  If that's your thing go right ahead but this workout is from a dude that has been lifting from the 70's and passed it down through generations.

It's like the exact opposite of Crossfit and I hate Crossfit so this is what I do.

i would stick with less exercises then suggested above. machines suck. stick with a few compound exercises, those are proven to stimulate the most CNS growth by far because they utilize many muscle groups and simulate real muscle movements.

Agreed, squats and deadlifts done with correct form are effective whole-body lifts that will increase flexibility, enhance posture, and improve practical strength. Obviously you want to mix in some upper-body specific exercises to balance everything out.

Caffeine helps me get motivated and stay focused on my form. Additionally, caffeine helps free up Ca+ ions, which play a direct role in voluntary muscle actuation.

Creatine will help with performance and recovery slightly.

Have fun, it really helps with overall quality of life :highfive:

Grab the P90x or insanity workout tapes and go nuts in front of your TV at home. I think some of the insanity workouts need light dumbells but there shouldn't be a whole lot of extras that you'll need.

Functional exercise like hiking, sports, etc is also an option.

Yes!

I go hiking/backpacking and kayaking on the weekends, it really helps break up the monotony of the gym. :thumbup:
