These days I am no longer into carrying excessive mass or going for single rep lifts.  Today, at 6'4" I will maintain pretty lean at 210 to 220 lbs., occasionally slipping up to around 230 lbs.  I usually lift M, W, F. Most of the time,I keep my upper body lifts in the 8-12 reps range.  Sometimes for short periods I will drop in the 5-8 range to appease my desire for some heavier weights.  I typically use  a range of 12-15 reps for most lower body exercises and sometimes drop in the 8-12 range.  I generally keep my rest periods between sets short.  Every now and then I will do 6 weeks of German Volume training for a change of pace.  In about 45 yrs of training I have been fortunate to not not have many injuries and genrally stay away from ballistic lift movements.  I am recently coming off a rotator cuff injury (that wasn't caused by lifting}. This has been the most limiting injury I have had in my 45 yrs of lifting.  I am about back to normal and I am handling pretty close to my old workout poundages.

I usually do cardio work on T, Th, Sa.  I stretch for about 1/2 hr everyday.

Post your numbers and regiment.

I am 5'11" 240 lbs. I play Soccer-Football (as my (as now) part-time money maker), Rugby Union, MMA, Kung Fu, some Aussie Rules Football, and some Cricket.

I weight train M, T, W, F, Sat and I run M, T, W, F, Sat, Sun.

I take in 250g of Protein on days I train. 200g on just run days, and 150g on off days.

For the ones I remember off the top of my head, I do 345 lb Bench, 550 lb Squat, 240 lb Power Clean.

what protein are u eating? Smiley

Thinking about going on a slightly modified version (heavier weights and more supplements) of the workout and routine of Ronaldo.

Have been the same weight -my personal target weight- for about 30 years, 200lbs/ 6'2"[1] -varying only about 2.5lbs in either direction aiming for slightly bigger "Bruce Lee" rather than "Arnold," and have done essentially the same routine all my years of training, e.g. I usually do 10-reps of 210-220lb lat pulldowns,
10-reps of *wide* flys with two 95s

followed as fast as I can possibly grab them ("super-sets") by wider flies (bringing the weight backwards all the way to the ground with arms completely straight -i.e. like a cross) with 25s -not so much weight, but right after the 95s with no rest between will burn.


(like this, but *all the way* down backwards to the floor! -I do everything with as hyper-extended as possible range of motion, almost combining weight lifting with a sort of "weight stretching")

I have never done bench press, just superset flys! (and cable crossovers/110lbs per side, and machines).
and I also don't do squats, though I do machine presses and wide lunges (back and forth across the gym), the latter with 135lbs down to about 110lbs, and various other leg exercises, shoulder press, triceps, dips, & etc. I try never to miss more than one day without working out (but usually do something most every day). As mentioned elsewhere I use the SunWarrior Vegan Protein but other than that eat pretty much whatever, except I rarely eat anything with much sugar at all.

Tip: most important over the long haul is what you do at least every other day or so over decades, not what you do on a binge or burst of activity that is not sustained (e.g. "New Year's Resolutions").

The Arnold Classic is less than a week away. It's a weak line up, but here's my prediction for how it'll play out:

1) Dexter Jackson (for his 4th Arnold title)
2) Ben Pakulski
3) Toney Freeman
4) Fouad Abiad
5) Johnnie Jackson
6) Hidetada Yamagishi (would be higher but he injured his hand/wrist a while back)
7) Ronny Rockel

she is not as bad as others who are...difficult to comprehend at least to me... but I happen to think soft is beautiful on a woman, just a personal preference.

OR



I chose the latter... which saved money and also will turn out to be a bit healthier  Grin
