I’m 3 weeks into my current program, which means I’m 1/2 way through with 3 weeks still to go. Have trained pretty solidly, although I’ve missed legs day a couple of times which is not really ideal.
I must have a pretty short attention span because I always seem to start getting ideas for what I want to do in my next program when I still have 2 or 3 weeks left on the current one. Not that that’s all bad, it gives me plenty of time to plan what i want to do next.
Anyway I feel that it is time to start evaluation my strong and weak points and then targetting those week points, working them hard and forcing them to adapt. Mainly for me this is traps and pecs. Now I love training chest, but for some reason i my chest doesn’t seem to be as well developed as say my front and middle delts, or my triceps. I almost suspect that perhaps I’m allowing those muscles to do too much of the work and take stress off the pectorals, but it’s hard to tell. Traps I now realise I have just never trained right for various reasons, and that needs to change.
SO I’m throwing around the idea of getting in 2 chest workouts and 2 trap & rear delt workouts per week, for two weeks. This is bordering on overtraining and I think doing it for any longer than 2 weeks would be a bad idea. But for just 2 weeks it might be enough to shock these muscles into growth.
One idea would be to go in for chest day and do things like cable cross overs, cable pec dec etc etc all for high reps, and then the next day go in and do a heap of pressing exercises, totally overloading the muscles. Alternatively, If i start this on one of my days off work I could just train twice in the same day. The following week I could still train chest twice, but maybe with a mix of exercises spread a couple of days apart.
I’ve been cutting calories lately but I will start eating like a horse when I start the new program. For supplements the plan is to stick with the MRI Black Powder, but add NO2 Black capsules as well. Also I’m going to start experimenting with having creatine at about the 3/4 point of my workouts to see how that affects my fatigue levels.
