Gains

It looks like another "cyclic gain" has finally come for me. I woke up and my deltoids, traps, forearms, and biceps were all bigger! ESPECIALLY good size gain in the deltoids and forearms. The last workout I did was stiff-legged deadlifts over a week ago.

That′s about my 4th or 5th cyclic gain since I started a year ago. All the strength gains without size gains pays off when you wake up larger! Very bizarre, but it keeps happening to me…

Hey Darrel,

Did your last workout only consists of one set stiff-legged deadlifts ??Can you write your shedule in this topic(with rest days),please.I want to start a dip/deadlift- chin/squat- workout now,but with normal dips I have some problems.Dips between benches are better for me but I think they don´t stimulate the pecs/delts enough.What do you think?

Christian.

Thanks.

Steiner_Ch,

Yes, the workout was only 1 set of stiff-legged deadlifts.

Here′s my workout:

Workout 1

————

1) MedX Dips post-exhaust static hold MedX Pullover

rest 7-20 days (REALLY varies a lot, but I never atrophy or loose strength by having bigger breaks, sometimes it helps. Usually the average is about 2 weeks)

Workout 2

————

1) MedX Leg Extension

2) MedX Leg Curl static hold

rest 7-20 days

ALTERNATED Workout 2

—————————-

1) Squats

rest 7-20 days

Workout 3

————

1) MedX Torso Arm (pulldowns) post-exhaust static hold MedX Pec Deck

rest 7-20 days

Workout 4

————

1) Stiff-Legged Deadlifts

ALTERNATED Workout 4

—————————-

1) Trap Bar Deadlifts

rest 7-20 days

repeat schedule

That′s about it. As you can see, I alternate workouts 2 and 4 every other time or so.

What problems do you have with dips? Shoulder pain? If so, just don′t go down so far. You′ll still get all the benefits of the exercise. Bench dips may not work your chest very well unless you can find a way to bend over more to hit the pecs. BUT, if you can do THAT, then you should be able to do dips.
