Fun With Powerbuilding – Day 9 – Chest & Triceps

CaliberZangeif

Rocked out with my chest out today, always a good time. The reason for the goofy picture is because a friend of mine referred to me as Zangief from the game Street Fighter II, so I was doing a live-action version. You know when they win a round they always do some sorta pose, well Zangief would often laugh, so, I laughed.

Caliber Has Fun With Powerbuilding – Day 8 – Legs

My apologies, buckshots. I know, I’ve been slacking. My computer is such a horrendous piece of shit that after my computer has been on for afew hours, it can take me literally 20 minutes just to update. So, I’ll go to update, tell myself I gotta restart, but then fall asleep because I’ve been up for about 14 hours.Which I know some cats like to play it tough like they only need 6 hours sleep, but they ain’t weightlifters, so they can blow me. You guys can always find my daily updates on my instagram @caliberwinfield in the event I don’t get to it here. You can find the most recent Chest, Back, and Shoulders workout.

I remember a few months ago I was cooking on my squats, and close to getting the 315 I’d been after for so long. I was using a stool to mark parallel, but when I saw it on film I realized I was 5-6 inches above where I wanted to be, and fucking crushed. After some debate, I said fuck it and started all over. I decided to go as deep as possible, which was real difficult and I had to restart back at 95lbs. Humbling shit. But, I’ve better developed my legs and ass because of it, plus I have more power as a result.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

Greetings, all.

Here in the next few days I’m going to get my hands on some Glycofuse and my favorite BCAAs, Modern BCAA. Glycofuse is a branch-chained form of carbohydrate. It’s super science stuff I don’t feel like going into here, but it’s suppose to be amazing when you drink it during a work out, especially mixed with high grade BCAAs. So, I’m gonna take the plunge and we’ll find out. Plus I’m gonna get me some BioGro. Awesome.

Caliber’s Good Times With Powerbuilding – Day 2 – Shoulders

Greetings, all.

Finally, FINALLY my schedule is solid again, and I’m able to really dig in and get this shit going.

Because of the part-time gig I have, I’m finally going to be able to afford enough food & supplements for a real bulk. I’m gonna go at it real hard. I’m eating a lot of PB&J sandwiches, bananas, apple sauce, my precious pancakes, oatmeal, nutty buddy bars, and protein shakes galore. I use to just be on about 150gs of protein, but now I’m shooting for 250g. I’m also gonna be able to get the good aminos, Modern BCAA, get on the Bio-Gro as well, plus Glycofuse. It’s…it’s gonna be good times.

I’m doing a modified version of Mike O’Hearn’s Powerbuilding program. He was on a 5 day schedule, but I’m doing 4 days on, 1 day off. I think all of this new change is going to really help bring out the new gains. So, rock on for that. Let’s see what happens.

Today was Shoulders.

Over-Head Press – 125×4, 4, 130×4, 4, 135×4, 4, 4
I love the low-rep/high sets with a heavy compound movement. It really gets you going for the workout, and it just feels awesome to move heavy weight.

Upright Rows – 65×10, 10, 10
I never do these, so the weight wasn’t a lot. I got a great pump in my traps & forearms, but think I’ll switch to dumbbells next time, because it started to hurt my wrists.

Front Raise – 30×15, 15, 20×15
I went down in weight because I started swinging out the reps.

Sitting Shoulder Lateral Raises – 15×10, 10, 10
An absolute must.

Rear Delt Machine Flies – 50×15, 15, 15, 15
An all too often ignored muscle that’s crucial.

Barbell Shrugs – 135×10, 10, 10, 10
I prefer these to dumbbell, because I feel them deeper down the back.

For the strength sets I rest about 3-5 minutes, but with the bodybuilding sets it’s 30 seconds, 60 at the utmost.

Alright, see you, the beautiful people, tomorrow for some Legs action.

Greetings all.

My apologies for the lack of updates. I started a new gig, working the front desk closing shift at a local gym. It’s gonna help your boy get some new equipment as well as supps and food to really up my game. Good times are ahead.

However, because of this gig, my schedule has been extremely fucked up. Normally I went to bed at 1, and woke up at 11. Well then they had me training for the gig at 3-7, and I had to get my work outs in afterward, in a crowded gym, which was honestly death. Going from a gym that had 10 people max working out in a massive area, to a much smaller area and about 40. Having to wait 15 minutes for a guy to finish quartersquatting so I can use the ONE squat rack.

My shifts are finally becoming what they’re suppose to. I’m working 8 to 1, and working out after in an empty gym, as the God’s intended. However, the lack of sleep and eating right has cost me a bit in the strength department, and my new training split isn’t working out. So, now that things are finally settling down, I’m gonna work out a new split, and really dive into this thing.

So, we’re gonna get it on, and see what happens. Let’s get it.

Stay tuned.
