Hot Diggity, Back Day

Greetings, all.

Started this bad bitch off with the Stairmaster. I hit 40 flights in 10 minutes. A while ago my goal was 30 in 10 minutes. Few things kick your ass harder than this. I know, the Stairmaster is scary, get over it.

The BATMAN Workout – Day 2 – Pull Day A – Plus, Explaining The BATMAN Workout part 2

BANEPULLDAYGreetings, all.

Yesterday I explained the strength portion of the Batman workout, now today I’ll explain the hypertrophy [muscle building] aspect.

Now, while not as important as strength, Batman would most definitely be trying to get very big. The bigger he is, the more intimidating.

We’re going old school meets new school with this program. After the heavy compound set to start our day, as well as warm up our CNS system, we move on to two other compound sets, each for 5 sets of 10. 5 sets of 10 are fucking perfect for hypertrophy. It’s old school volume for old school results. I always feel good with 5 sets of 10, because you never leave anything to chance. I run this on a two month cycle. The first month these two compound lifts are done at 50% of your max, the second month it’s 60%, then you restart at 50 and so forth. Since you’re constantly upping your max by around 5lbs a month, shit gets pretty heavy, pretty fast.
Now since we’re doing bodybuilding style lifts from here on out, for the most part, the rest periods are getting short, and only getting shorter. For the lifts that are 5×10, the rest periods are 60 seconds, no longer. You need to keep things intense, work your muscles, build up their endurance.
After the two 5×10 compounds, we move on to some isolation work, sometimes more compound. Unless otherwise stated. There is no prescribed percentage for the lifts here, just go for it. No need to over-think it. Now, things are going to get a little difficult here, because the rest periods are very short. 30 seconds. Rest periods that short are no joke. I’ve used them a lot in the past few months, and I know they’re a big reason why I’ve seen new growth in my calves, forearms, and shoulders. Also, I try to keep the reps a bit higher, 12-15, because different rep schemes yield different results. The final set, for most days, is a burn out set. We’re talking 6-7 sets, and 10-15 second rest periods. This hurts. Again, this also works your endurance, as well as your cardio vascular system.

Tomorrow is part 3 where I explain what kinda food and Bat-supps I rock and prefer.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

Caliber’s 6 Day Powerbuilding Workout Routine Spectacular – Day 22 – Pull Day B

pulldaybhulkGreetings, all.

Man, if you ever want to discover a new way to work the lower back, give side-bends a shot. But don’t do that stupid thing where you hold weight in both hands, which does nothing. Hold a weight you can get 10-15 reps with, and make sure they’re long, with a full range of motion. My lower back is always sore the next day.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

pulldaybhulkGreetings, all.

Before we get to the action, as promised, a new video. Whether or not you’ve heard about it, there was a big kerfuffle over a video some girl made called “Dear Fat People”, in which she talked about some of the things in our society regarding overweight folk. Well, because it was completely anti-PC, people got in all sorts of an uproar. Anyway, I was asked by a few for my thoughts, so, I cooked up a video. Hope you cats dig it. You can get it right here.

Alrighty, let’s get it.
