Re: Cutting critique (Low dairy)

Kept getting half way through responding and getting swamped at work! Appreciate input guys and all the pointers from Drake - It will be about experimenting I wont be too stubborn :) but I have found in the past HIIT did really help the BF% but that was from something massive like 21%>16% so who kno...

Re: Random crap

haha I remember doing my biceps far too bad after a lay off, this was a long time ago though so I wasn't doing much with them at all (not even pullups) - and the doms the next day were truly shocking. Anyway - couldn't straighten my arms, had to lean toward the phone on my desk and pick it up at an ...

Re: Cutting critique (Low dairy)

nuts are very high calorie, just sayin... Yea no worries, I get quite geeky with my numbers/spreadsheets so I have a decent idea of what calories are in what, and in the end, it doesnt matter how many calories are in something as long as you understand how much its contributing to your calorie budg...

Re: Cutting critique (Low dairy)

Yea thats a good point, I should add spinach to my eggs - any herb tips? off the top of my head can't think of one for breakfast eggs. I don't have milk and cheese in the cut plan - I do now (current diet), but I am replacing cheese with lean meat (reasonably lean anyway - It wont be too strict - bu...

Re: High Intensity Interval Training

I wouldnt do deadlifts for this - I'd go with complexes as resistance "HIIT" I personally do something along the lines of: Pushups x10 barbell rows x10 high pulls x5 shoulder press x10 Back squat x10 my "rest" is a 1 minute plank I cant remember how many sets of that I do, but I'd guess about 3 sets...

Re: Personal Best Log

50 reps! You masochist. You might like this little complex I use for shoulders sometimes: snatch clean and press cleans high pull do 8 reps of each before moving on to the next, no rest between exercises. Hurts so good Erg, thats not for shoulders, thats for heart rate ! :) Anyway - 105kg bench x2 ...

Re: Body building upper back

Fair does Rscott (especially about heavy pulldowns, I kind of used the logic that it would increase my ability to do wider pullups, but you're right, we're after volume here) My lats are aethestically good really - my body fat is a tad high so that may help their size but genetically I am fine in th...

Re: Body building upper back

I guess so - those two would help but quite focused on the delts then - traps with the normal rows, rhomboids? what about chest suported rear flies ?

Might give widegrip heavy lat pulldowns a go too - work towards grown folk pullups (will be easier when I drop 5-6lbs of fat!)

Re: Body building upper back

Hmm I do cleans but very low rep heavy weights - it was more to test my overall strength/measure my clean max just to satisfy my overall compound numbers - literally 3x1 or 3x3 once a week on squat day to get a big compound rush/feeling (and not that I am certain, but believe the combo of draining s...

Body building upper back

Hi all, Long story short, I want upper back hypertrophy. I am still totally comitted to gaining compound strength via 5/3/1 - but as I have mission accomplished for my 2 years training (numbers wise) I am going to spend 3-5 months "playing" with aethetics and tweaking my proportions (I have thin arm...
