12> HIAH: Get Big – Phase 1 & Log

Started HIAH Get Big Phase 1.  Here is my version of the  HIAH Get Big – Phase 1 Chart.  I need the Chart and Clip Board, otherwise I don’t know where I’m going or where I’ve been.  Don’t understand how people workout without keeping track and without a plan in front of them.

It starts with a Heavy workout, meaning that you set the weight to only be able to do 4-6 reps per set to achieve a total of 25 repetitions.

In doing the Chin-ups and not having a “dip belt” to add extra weight, I focused on forum.  Slow and full hang.  Focused effort – you feel the difference.

The Barbell Decline Bench Press – well that is a new one for me.  I hate the bench.  It is difficult to get on and off.  You can not vary the angle of the decline.  I would have to bring a sit up bench over to the squat rack to achieve any variance.  I set the weight – not all that heavy – for most of you, but for a new exercise – heavy enough.  Upped it after the first round but still not real heavy.

The Dead Lifts – well I need to work on warming up.  If I can warm up sufficiently, I should be able to really increase my weight on this one.  There was a significant difference in how my back felt between the first set and the last set.  The last set was actually easier.

The Standing Single Leg Calf Raise was interesting in trying to find the right weight.  I kept upping it until I hit 50.

So far so good.  Just have to focus on form and forcing myself to up the weights.

The book had an error.  Workout C of this phase is a Heavy workout, not what is listed.  That is why there is a difference between the book and my chart.  Got this from the Men’s Health HIAH Forum.
