    Is it normal to be done each of these sessions in like 30 minutes? Is that too little?

    I think I'm gaining muscle while losing fat on this routine :bowdown: arms are 16" flat @ 215 right now, they were exact same size @ 230lbs a few months ago and I definitely lost some fat off them...



    too bad I'm 6'4" and 16" arms are pathetically skinny :o

    3 days should be plenty of time for your tris to recover, they are a small muscle

    My tri's never feel worked that well after a chest day. Make sure you're actually using your chest when you bench... I pretty much feel it exclusively in my chest these days after watching this vid and taking Milos' advice.


    http://videos.bodybuilding.com/watc...son-one-episode-3-milos-sarcev-chest-training


    1) lower the weight
    2) keep elbows flared, chest very expanded, bring bar to the middle of the chest (above nipples)
    3) keep movement relatively slow to ensure the tension is on your pecs
    4) maximally contract your chest while pressing

    keep benching like that 'till your shoulders are FUBAR.

    After that, watch this and learn how to bench.

    Then do a little research for ways to better to develop the chest

    Honestly it doesn't hurt my shoulders one bit. For some people I can see how it would and when I tried it a year or two ago it definitely caused pain... but I've been doing it for months now with zero pain and I do a 3-6 RM pretty much every week on flat or incline. Sometimes I leave a rep or two in the tank if I'm going to do a drop set.

    PL style benching seems pretty worthless for chest development so if I'm not trying to hit big numbers I don't see the point to benching at all if it's not going to stimulate my chest. I couldn't care less if I'm only benching 185lbs-- if it makes my chest grow then that's all I care about.

    edit: I also use a pretty wide grip... index fingers 1" outside of the rings usually. :dunno:

    What do you guys do about the 2 scoops whey and the gatorade on non-training days, or off days?

    I was thinking about skipping both, or maybe just skipping the gatorade to keep carbs in check and still using the protein.

    Skipping both would help keep cals low for my non-training days though.

    Cutting btw.

    chop up onions, garlic andtoss them after the boil, as the rice is simmering.

    if you're not worried about the extra little carbs, some dried cranberries, burrberries or raisins work well to.

    with a 5 minutes left, add spices (if you can use fresh parsley/cillantro even better), and chopped spinach/baby spinach.

    Olive oil, salt, and pepper makes it taste great to me.

    If that's not good enough, saute some finely chopped onion and garlic and stir into rice. Chopped and saute'd Greek olives are good in it as well.
