I've been varying my workouts a lot lately. Obviously, I was already at the top of my game as far as upper body strength goes, and my arms were huge. (I get shitloads of compliments at the gym on my arms alone.) But I've been looking for something a little more balanced, workout-wise, in terms of total physique. So I'm keeping up my usual dirty 30s now, five days a week, but on top of that I'm pounding out three strength sessions a week on the iso bars - alternating high weights and low repetitions with lower weight, more reps. To be honest with you, the results have been pretty phenomenal. First off, my recovery time is way down. Second, it's been what, two and a half weeks and my abs are more defined than they were after literally years of stomach work on the mats. And my thighs and calves are getting massive. I'll show you when I see you. People keep asking me if I'm taking anything, that's how fit I'm looking right now. I'm like, "No, dude. This comes from pain, sweat and working my ass off." Of course, it's dietary, too. You think you're gonna be carrying cannons like these around if you don't have a high protein, low carbs thing going? Nothing cracks me up more than seeing all these people working out, and then they go for a burger and fries. I have to shake my head when I see that. Do you know how many calories of fat there are in six ounces of ground beef? Etc.
