Now that's intensity. :cool: I just hope you have great knees there. My knees have been starting to pay its toll after years of heavy squating.

No problems here since my form is pretty solid.

I remember before doing this leg routine with an insane training partner. We would warm up doing leg extensions to pre-exhaust the quad muscles. Moderate weight for 3-4 sets of 30-40 reps. Then hell begins. We'd do Leg presses for an insane amount of weight for 10 reps, immediately after we proceeded to the squat rack and to do front squats for 12 to 15 reps then finally do walking lounges for 50 yards with dumbells on hand. We'd rest for a min. and repeat the cycle 3 more times (4 sets all in all) We'd be finished in 20 mins. Those were the insane days.

This reminds me of the Colorado experiment workout in the 60's by Casey Viator. However, the difference is he will do leg exensions followed by leg presse folowed by squats in a tri-set fashion, all exercises done to failure..

This was a brutal tri-set. We've entertain the idea of going to failure for each excercise however, experience told us that when we aim for failure, we stop the set at will. Thus, we set a rep range here.

I would also like to share a time before when I have adopted the 1 set aproach to train my back. This was roughly 4-5 years ago. My goal here was to only do a set per excercise given in a weight I could only execute 4 to 6 reps. When I can lift more than 6, I'd repete the set on a heavier weight. If I can barely do 4 I'd drop the weight and start again. Basically, its really heavy weight. I've adopted this program for half a year and I can honestly say that this was the time I have developed my back to be the broadest it has ever been.

Here's the program:
1.) Pull ups 50 reps. As many sets required to reach 50 total reps with 2 to 3 mins. rest intervals (takes me roughly between 4 to 6 sets depending on what I feel) this is the only excercise I really do more than I set. After finishing the pull ups my back's pump is already insane.
2.) Dumbell rows 4-6 reps (at that time I think I was rowing 90 lbs) you'd be surprised how strong you actually are when you're not wasting energy on build up pyramid sets.
3.) Cross Bench dumbell pullover 4-6 reps
4.) Shoulder width underhand pull downs/weighted chin ups 4-6 reps
5.) Behind the back Pull downs 4-6 reps
6.) Barbell row / Smith machine row (which I find pathetic)
7.) Cable rows lower abdomen pull
8.) T-bar rows
9.) Cable pull overs.

This program made me one of the ''widest'' guys in the gym back then. However, my back never reached it's fullest details specially along the trap and erector area when I didn't seriously adopt a consistent back routine focusing on deadlifts.

Are you based in QC?

If you're near Manila, you can head out to Eclipse, or just wait after the holy week since we'll be soft-opening our Shaw branch already :cool:

Anyone who've trained in Technofit? I think this is somewhere in Tutuban right? Is it as "hardcore" as what it is percieved to be?
