Dread's Carnivore Muscle Thread


(Chris - Mince meat, not words.) #61

Snapshot of the routine. The primary lift is done 5 sets of 6 until I can easily hit 6 reps on the last set, then the weight goes up. The rest is sets of 12.

The order goes Upper, Lower, Pull, Push, Legs - Monday-Friday.

Most difficult and taxing leg day all year. Can’t wait to beat it next Friday! Also, 100,000lbs lifted in less than 2 hours?

So, interestingly enough, I’ve been having some chronic pain all week in my right knee. After I left the gym this morning, the pain was and still is completely gone. #squatsheal


(Chris - Mince meat, not words.) #65

Very sore. :heart_eyes:


(Laurie) #66

Good sore or bad sore?

Thanks for the thread. I used to weight train but no more. Cheering you on from the sidelines now!


(Chris - Mince meat, not words.) #67

Thanks Laurie! Good sore, for sure.

So much cardio

:wink:


(Chris - Mince meat, not words.) #77

Cute. :stuck_out_tongue:

I actually have a somewhat active job so I’ll easily log 12k steps. Not much time for it in the morning between the gym and my 2nd job (Lyft). The hustle kind of supercedes a lot of other stuff at the moment.

Heh, I was actually being a smart ass about the reps. I never go over five, so I got winded just reading it.
