I explain chest training techniques throughout my workout along with FST-7 at the end! 3 weeks to go till I shoot with fitness model Brittany Walker at the Arnold Classic Weekend



WORKOUT13 300x12010 Cardio/Chest/Biceps/ABSToday I woke up feeling pretty well and ready for some awesome workouts.  This ended up not being the case icon sad Cardio/Chest/Biceps/ABS It was one of those days that everyone dreads having.  It started with 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical around 10am this morning and that went pretty well.  As the day went along I just kept getting more and more tired.  I figured 200 mg of caffeine would help but today it didn't.  My Chest workout this afternoon was not good at all.  I couldn't get a pump and I felt weak and tired.  I know I'm not feeling this way because of a lack of carbs because I'm taking in more than I ever have when preparing for a shoot.  I believe I'm feeling depleted from my INTENSE back workout yesterday and picking up 405lb for 2 sets of 8 on deadlifts got me drained.

  1. Incline Barbell press - 4x8-12 one dropset on last set
  2. Incline DB Press - 4x10-12
  3. Pec Dec - 3x10
  4. Flat DB Fly - 3x12
  5. Flat Barbell Press - 3x12 only used 135 and really focused on the contractions
  6. Cable flys - 3x12
  7. Standing Barbell curls - 4x6-12
  8. One arm standing preacher db curls - 3x12 superset reverse standing barbel curls 3x12
  9. rope crunches 3x12
  10. sit up bench weighted crunches - 3x12

Depending on how I'm feeling tomorrow it might end up being a rest day.



WORKOUT13 300x1203 Chest/ABS/Cardio

  1. Incline Barbell Press - 2 warm up sets to 15 then 4x8-10
  2. Incline DB Fly - 4x8-10
  3. Flat Smith Machine Press - 3x8-12 one drop set on last set
  4. Hammer Flat Press - 4x8-10
  5. Pec Dec - 3x10-12 one drop set on last set
  6. Rope crunches - 3x15
  7. Lower ab machine crunch 3x20
  8. Cardio Elliptical 15 minutes
  9. Dog Walk 25 minutes

This was one of my best Chest workouts I've ever had.  I believe that not having to get up at 5am anymore is doing my body wonders already.  I still feel like I'm not fully caught up on rest but todays workout proved to me how drained my body has been.  My strength is climbing each workout.  I'm looking forward to getting in there tomorrow and hitting some back!



WORKOUT6 300x120 Chest/Tri/Abs/CardioFinally feeling like myself again with the intensity through the roof!  Before heading to the gym I watched Fouad Abiad's chest workout at flexonline.com.  I took my notes on which exercises he performed and the amount of sets and reps etc. and then headed out the door on my bike to the gym.

  • Incline BB Press - 3x12,10,6 then 2 drop sets for 4 on the first drop then 8 on the last drop

After training Chest/Bi at BAC Botetourt,VA

So after having plenty of carbs after my leg workout this morning it was time to hit some Chest and Biceps with my friend Ben.  All I've got to say is it feels so good to feel like myself again.  I'm training harder than ever and I'm so happy I'm not trying to be someone I'm not anymore (with trying to be skinny for fashion modeling).  The past couple of days has been my most intense and heavy workouts I've done since I used to train strictly as a bodybuilder.

  1. Flat DB Press - 3 warm up sets followed by 3 working sets of 8-10
  2. Incline Hammer Press - 3x8-12 with one dropset on the last set
  3. DB Pullovers - 4x10-12
  4. Incline DB Flys - 3x10-15
  5. Freemotion Fly Machine - 2x12
  6. Hammer Preacher Curl - 3x10-12
  7. Standing Cable One arm Curl - 2x12

I'm taking tomorrow off as I'll be traveling all day and after all of these intense workouts it will do my body some good to rest.  Once I get back to Nashville I have a lot of video editing to do and all of the videos I recorded will be up by the end of the week.  The picture above was after tonight's workout.  I forgot to get a picture of Ben and I (sorry Ben).
