Curls, DB's, seated with backstop, strict

Reverse/hammer curl, DB's
40x 6x6, awesome pump

DB wrist curl, alternate, approx. 20 secs sets.
70x 6x15, lost count did extra set maybe for 7x15. Piece of cake, up weight next workout or cut to 15 sec!

39 min. long I know, but a lot of plate changing, :) Arms pumped


Switched to DB's today, all exercises

DB bench
75x 6x6, 20 sec. rests, cut 5 sec off

55x 6x6, 15 sec! cut 5 lb and cut 5 sec off.

Row, DB's
75x 6x6, 20 sec rests, cut 5 sec off

Pullover, DB
75x 6x6, 20 sec rests, cut 5 sec off

19 min flat. Didn't take hands off bells for bench, flys or pullover, no time to wipe sweat, and was in a pool of water when I finished, happy Cajin? lol.


Arthritis in knees, especialy right knee give'n me fits. Got up early and lower back feels hincky, in other words, fell like crap. Limit to squats today.

175x 6x6, 15 sec rests between sets, (cut 5 sec off) breath'n rather hard I must say!

About 4 min. but who's counting? :)


Shoulders & Arms. May change shoulders to chest back day, arms are enough by themselves.

DB press

38 min. Kinda long, kinda tucker'd, kinda pumped, :)

I just kept cutting time with weight cuts where needed to get the time down. DB's seem a better fit for some of the stuff. I rest the DB's on the legs while waiting for the next set, really no time to take hands of the bars. It's different. A lot of time today was changing the bells. Coulda done a 25 min workout with more bells setup. Vince knew his stuff.

I think I'm starting to burn out on this routine. HAve been on it 6-7 weeks. Went pretty fast on getting to 15 sec rests I think, and nailed everything but DB bench. Last 2 sets (on bench) starting to bother shoulder. Have seen a nice change in muscles though. Will play around a little, and give myself a little more time on rests between sets. Good stuff Cajin!

DB bench
75x8,8,8,8,8,8,6,6. All with 15 sec rests.
DB rows
75x8x8, all with 15 sec rests.
Standing flys
35x8x8, all 15 sec rests

16 min.

 Can flex the chest now, due probably in part to DB bench as opposed to bar. Shoulders have a little meat on medial deslt. Have added a bit to forearms, 13" unflexed, arm straight,14" flexed. Have gained a 1/2" since last year. Upper arm, 17 inches cold, no gain, (actually larger last year) but look more defined. Chest 49" flexed, seemed to have gained a bit there. Have no idea what these numbers mean, but will see what happens as I change the routine. Will do a bit more warmup pyramiding the weight. That's all I got man, hope it makes sense.


OK, changing up a little

DB press
40x10, 62x8,8,8, felt heavy, not pushing today.

Cajin rows, seated, DB
62x8,8,8,8, felt light, but that's ok.

DB reverse/hammer curls
50x10, 55x10,10, 50x10,10,stair step grip tape really helps!
DB wrist curl

12-29-07 05:46 PM - Post#389931     

Took yesterday off and then hafta search for the dang log!

135x10, 165x10,10,10, 145x15,15. Shoulder bothers me a bit, go back to DB's, better pump also.

145x15, 165x10,10, 190x10,10, 145x15. Not as good a stretch as with DB's.

SL Deads
145x3, 210x3. 290x3, 325x5. All the iron I could get on the 1" bar.

BB wrist curl, for fun. On special forearm bench, also used as a chopping board, ;)
145x20, 180x15,12, 165x15,12. Haven't done these in months, and shows.
DB wrist curl
80x20. Better pump, and hits flexors more. BB seems more wrist than flexors. Starting to think DB's are my future, doh!

40 min. of fun and games. Going for ice tea, must have drink!
What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach.


OK. I guess this is the last workout of the year, as I'm taking tomorrow off.
Shoulders and arms fried from yesterday, so light weight blood pumping workout.

40x20, 20, 15, 15, that's it, I'm fried.

Will rest flexors today, maybe try for new PR DB wrist curl in Jan. Goal, 125x3-5.

36 min.


Decided to make a wrist curl PR.
85x20, 100x15, 127.6x5! PR! 90x25! Heavy sucker, but exceeded goal of 125. What to do for next year? Hmmm.

10 min.

32 min. Nice tight workout. My tri's were hammered, and my hammers were tried. Dipped, battered, and double deep fried. Giddyup!

I did mostly full body 3xweek from age 49 till around 55, that's 6 years, with an extra forearm workout here and there. Mostly squat, dead, chin, row, dip and press. Like the others said, you got to work up to it. I do on occasion workout 5-6 times a week(like when I was in my 20's) when I have the time and energy, but all in all, you can build a lot of muscle not to mention strength, on 3xweek. Stick with it a couple years, you'll see, 


Yep for performance work, it's hard to beat 3xweek. A push, pull, and a hip or quad dominate exercise. Get freaky strong.

Coughing today still. Weird. Very busy and a little tired, so will hit forarms and do a real workout tomorrow.

DB wrist curl, alternate, Sipes style.
80x45, 100x25, 110x15,(PR?) 91x25, 80x25

About 12 min. of fun.......not.


Long day, seems I do more work on my days off, huh? Got most of my plates repainted though. I have nonslip step tape on my DB's and bar, nasty stuff, so I painted the handles, smothed out the sandpaper effect, but still has a good grip! Nice.
Late start for a workout, and a little tired, so will blast it like I have no brains,

DB rows
75x10, 97x 4x10, nice pump

DB press
40x10, 55x 4x10, a bit weak on these today.
