    I have not done this type of muscle stimulation before, so it's going to be a new and unique experience for me. As I've said already, I've seen a similar pattern to what I intend to do, done by others, however not exactly following the same pattern. We'll see what happens. I thank you for your post Sir.

    Yep, apologies if my post was a bit terse Fadi.

    Good routine for an experiment. Best of luck

    Taking it up a notch from the Piana 8 hour arm workout Fadi.
    I look forward to seeing the results

    no Buttsie, I was being polite.

    If he wants to experiment himself, go for it.

    Not worth the time unless you want to do something totally different.

    I wasn't aware of the Piana 8 hour arm workout, but I know (like other respectable members on Ausbb know), that I am not the first one to perform this pattern of lifting. I'd like to say that each pattern is unique onto itself, and the best one is the one that is modified and made suitable for you, the individual lifter. You see, I like higher reps for a reason. Other bodybuilders may think that any rep range above the normal 8-12 is simply there for muscular endurance and an insane pump. I'm one of those lifters who appreciate the muscle pump and all the modern scientific findings supporting its benefits towards muscle hypertrophy.

    It goes without saying that the role of heavy loading in muscle hypertrophy is the primary impetus for an adaptive response. By heavy loading, (relatively speaking of course), I'm referring to the mechanical tension side of lifting, one of three factors that have been postulated to mediate hypertrophic adaptations, with the other two factors being metabolic stress, and muscle damage.

    This coming weekend, I will be making use of all three factors mentioned above (with the exception of the biceps muscles), as the EZ bar curling action won't do much in the way of biceps damage. For that, one needs to do an exercise that brings in a stretched position whilst under tension/ load. Granted that some focus on the eccentric phase of the lift, or perhaps some added isometrics here and there can also cause some muscle fiber damage, however I won't be utilising either of these protocols. For other exercises that directly cause muscle fiber damage on the micro level, I can think of the Scott curls, or even (to a lesser extent though), the incline bench d/bell curls. I don't like either of this exercises, hence my biceps will be smashed with mechanical tension (as I'll start heavy), then with metabolic stress, as I reduce the weight and rest interval, whilst increasing the reps. The triceps however, would benefit from all three hypertrophic signaling methods mentioned above, as I will allow for bit of a stretch at the bottom of the French curl exercise, and that will be the cause of muscle fiber damage in my triceps.

    I'm very much aware that this whole exercise is going to be a balancing act between protein synthesis and breakdown. By the weekend, I would have completed my eating plan beginning on Friday, and coming to a slow down by about Wednesday. I don't wish for my eating plan to become the bottleneck prior, during, and after this event is over. I'll put up the breakdown of everything I'll be eating and drinking, and what result I end up with after I'm fully loaded with nutrients.

    Thank you for your interest Sir, I sincerely appreciate it.

    @Fadi; Piana also does "Feeder workouts". Those are 100 reps for Arms or Shoulders EVERY night before Bed. He claims to anyway.

    Interesting, I wasn't aware of that either. I'm not really a great follower of Mr. Piana. As for "Feeder workouts", I'm not sure what he means by that. Back in 2009 when I joined Ausbb, I suggested one try doing 50-100 reps for the same muscle trained the day before. However my message back then was not relating to double stimulation of the same muscle fiber, but simply to flush that previously worked muscle with fresh nutrient carrying blood, to help with the recovery process. So again, not sure if Mr. Piana is referring to that same concept of "Feeding" the muscle with new blood, or whether his purpose is something altogether different.

    From memory his were every night right before bed:

    20 Curls
    20 Triceps Exts

    repeat x another 4


    Or

    20 Side Lats
    20 Rear Delt flyes

    repeat x 4

    @White_Lie; can correct me if I'm wrong. He based his life on Rich's philosophies.
