    Friday 12th June 2015: Chest Workout @ 1.00pm in my Home Gym.

    Workout A - Heavy (slow tempo lifts), with an increase in reps from last week if possible.

    Smith Machine Flat Bench Press x 4 sets x 90kg x 12,10,8,8 reps.
    Incline D.B. Press x 4 sets 30kg D.Bells x 12,12,10,10.
    Incline D.B. Flyes x 3 sets x 20kg D.B. X 12,12,12 reps
    Press up x 3 sets x 12 reps.
    Front Close-Grip plate raise x 15kg Plate x 3 sets x 12 reps.
    Plate Pull-Over Stretch x 20kg plate x 12 reps x 3 sets.

    Not a bad workout, however as expected due to 3 days of low-carb, a few reps down on last week.
    The workout lasted approx. 50 mins.

    your getting good volume done in 45- 50 minutes sessions Stimac

    Interested in your 3 sets of 12 with no reps comments - does this mean you just take a few breaths and straight back to them?
    or do you actually not pause at all and it is 1 set of 36 reps?

    with the no, or limited rest followed by supersets, it reads like a 45 or 50 minute session in which you are pretty much on the go all the time in that period.

    Hey Steve. Yeah I mix it around from time to time. With this particular workout I would do a Back set then a Bicep set with no rest between them. I would then take a breather for approx. 90 seconds before doing it over again. Yes plenty of volume in each workout as I only hit these body-parts once a week which allows them to recover & grow before smashing them again lol. Again, appreciate your comments buddy!

    that is a very impressive bench session with the big plates for that many reps both flat and then incline Stimac1976

    To follow that up with DB pressing must have had your arms burning by the finish of that lot.

    great work in 45 minutes and a heck of a lot of weight thrown about

    Thanks Steve, Chest is my favorite workout (like many I assume lol)...To be honest was not my best session. I had been helping my father-in-law move patio slabs all week & not eaten like I normally do so I took it quite easy. Feeling my Triceps today though so must of worked lol....Now for a back n Bi workout!!

    I will be completely honest Stimac
    is FS Front Squat, LE leg extension, LC leg curl? not sure what SLP or CR is?
    Front squat with 70 kg for 12 reps on 1st set, sounds pretty good to me

    liked yesterdays Smiths incline and flat bench numbers also and to follow those up with DB presses = arms on fire I woud imagine by the finish?

    Hey Steve, Thanks for the comments again buddy!......Yeah you got me haha.....SLP is Smith Machine Leg-Press & CR is Calf Raises. I am now about off my crutches, however, at times my legs are weak & can go a little wobbly. I still drag my feet a touch but with effort I am slowly returning back to normal hopefully. Cheers again Adam.

    caught up again now Adam

    Smith Machine leg press - thus laid on floor pushing bar upwards - I have seen those done but never tried them
    Smith Machine rows and shrugs are also exercises I enjoy doing and when travelling thus hotel gyms they both get put into my routine

    incline pressing 80kg for sets of 12, and then 90kg on flat is certainly a heavy session ( too heavy for me anyway)

    Hey Steve mate.
    I have only started using the Smith Machine for leg press over the last 2 weeks & I`m finding it good as an extra way to build some muscle in my lower half. Like yourself I also use the Smith for rows & shrugs, plus all the cables for various back exercises.
    I lift heavy all the time now for each muscle group as I think this is the best thing for retaining my muscle whilst reducing my body fat. I am in a calorie deficit state so I expect my lifts / strength to somewhat reduce overtime & each week it becomes more of a challenge to hit my intended rep targets etc. All in all I have made good progress since my last Pic which is my current avatar one & I will be updating this soon to show my gains. Cheers for keeping in touch Steve 7 all the best with your goals buddy.

    Seated military press - that many reps at about my body weight is very impressive Stimac
    also impressive that you still had working shoulders enough to continue with DB presses aftewards

    Your rest times are minimal to get all that done in 45 mins , so your stamina is in good shape also

    Hey Steve mate. Yeah it`s taken years of regular workouts to build up to these un-assisted lifts. I still have a number of friends come up to my gym but they work out at different times. When they are able to work out with me I really really push myself without fear of injury etc. so watch this space for heavier weights haha. I hope your all good buddy & plz stay in touch as its nice to talk.

    yep all good for me thanks Stimac1976
    It is good when you can work out with people you know and like , I have the occasional session with the gym PT , just working out at same time, and I do enjoy those for the between set chats and also the encouragement it can generate

    Providing those in-between set chats don`t turn in to long debates haha....which is normally the case with a lot of my friends lol. Hence why I workout on my own for the majority of instances to hit the time limits between each exercise / set.

    Super-Set 2: SMITH MACHINE BENT OVER ROW: 3 sets x 90kg x 12 reps....no rest.....Wide-Grip EZ Curl: 3 sets x 35kg x 12 reps.
    Super-Set 3: SEATED Bench ROWS: 3 sets x 70kg x 12 reps.....no rest.....Standing Dumbbell curls: 3 sets x 15kg D/B x 20 reps.
    Super-set 4: WIDE-GRIP LAT PULL-DOWN: 3 sets x 52.5kg x 12 reps.....no rest.......Standing Dumbbell Hammers: 3 sets x 15kg D/B x 20 reps.
