Hey, thanks Sanji.

That is something I could probably do. Sometimes I see insta girls filming their booty workouts in my local gym.

Is there something in particular you would like to see me do? Or do you just want to see everything from the beginning to the end?

It would be awesome to see everything from beginning to end but I can see how that could be kind of a pain for you, filming wise. Mostly, I'm just super impressed by those decline/incline presses and just curious overall to watch your form.

Well I could definitely do it on one of my pressing days. I have a few people that I lift with on a weekly basis so I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem with them filming me here and there. This is also a good time since I’m doing strength building.

I’ll also try to show what I do before these lifts because preparation is pretty huge factor on performance.

Nice! I'm really looking forward to this :)
I think posting some videos of your workouts could possibly help bring more traffic to this thread as well.

Maybe

Thing is I do most of the posting here so I never thought anybody would want to see one. I’ll consider it though and try to put one up asap.:)

Typically how long do your sessions last? Sometimes I feel like I may be overdoing it.

Today I had 55 minutes to train so I tried shocking my body with flat and proceeded to do isolation training. Even though time was limited, I felt like the workout was very effective.
Usually around an hour but it depends, I often drag my sessions out a bit because I have a home gym so I'm not in a rush lol

At 55 minutes I doubt you're over doing it.

My sessions are pretty minimalist. I used to do much higher volume/longer sessions with more exercises but cutting back I've noticed no difference. I seem to get as much benefit from minimalist training, if anything I am stronger than ever and have been hitting a lot of PBs.

e.g. my leg routine is basically ATG Squats with 3 warm up sets working up to 2 maximal working sets and then a finishing set at 90%. After squats I do barbell hip thrusts with a similar structure. So I guess it's 12 sets but most of it is just warmup, I'm really only doing like 4-5 sets at maximum intensity. I could probably do it all in around half an hour if I wanted to.

Cutting out all the fat, my legs are far bigger than they've ever been too.

I will probably be cutting soon but I still have abs. I’m at 220 pounds at the moment and I’m getting pretty strong in a short period of time. As long as I don’t get fat, I don’t mind maintaining as much as possible.

Did a heavy pressing day - sorry I didn’t record. I didn’t have anybody with me.

Strength training is coming along very well.

Decline bench press
315 1x3
315 1x2
275 1x8

Flat bench press
225
1x14

Felt pretty solid. I’ll be taking off a day or so and will be hitting legs next.

Only thing I’m gonna say is my cut is going pretty well.

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting and keeping my protein a bit higher. My obliques are coming in and my obliques are starting to develop more.

Strength wise, I still have it. Nothing too crazy though. Today I did some flat and did 3 sets of 5 with 275.

For the record, I’ve been off creatine for two weeks as well. I haven’t really noticed much of a difference except maybe a couple of reps on some sets

Read through all your progressions and all the sets that you do and it's inspiring definitely, nice job Mahou!

Not much a fan of free weights myself, but I indulged in calisthenics for under a year and I'm getting my gains that way. Do you do only free weights or do you mix it up as well?

I do a lot of pushups, pull-ups, and decline sit ups. For cardio, I like to use stair master, row machine, and just run. As of lately, I kind of hit most of my long term goals but I’m thinking of trying to go for a 350lb flat bench.

I feel like calisthenics are primarily used to condition the body.
Thank you guys for the encouragement!

Still trying to find people to help me tape some part of my workout.

Today marks a milestone for me. Did a 505 lb deadlift no belt weighing 10lbs less than I when I was at the peak of my bulk. I also never deadlift. It felt pretty easy and I’m feeling fresh - I’m so happy.

Been awhile since I’ve posted in my progress thread but everything is going well. I recently have started to take deadlifting a little more seriously to throw something new in the mix. I’ve been doing this about one/two times a week. Because of this, I feel more explosiveness in other lifts that I’m doing.

Today’s set looked like this
135 1x8
225 1x8
315 1x8
385 1x5

I probably could have easily done 405 1x5 but I’m trying to do this the right way. My max deadlift at the moment is 505. I think it’d be pretty cool to hit a 550 deadlift - even if I don’t reach it, I’m primarily just doing this for hypertrophy.
