MI40-x logs: week 1; week 2; week 3



This was a fairly enjoyable training week. The goal is “strength/high threshold training”.
the actual split is changed once again, but it’s a little unconventional. It begins with a three-day split of: chest & side delts, back & hamstrings, quads. After these three work outs it has two final days or “finishers” as I often call them which kind of demolish your muscles…

Perhaps my favourite workout of the week was the “compound day” where you do the “big three” in wavelike loading pattern. the arm & delt day had a ton of drop sets including doing drops on all sets of dumbbell laterals – a trick I believe Toney Freeman is known for.

Last day of the week is arms and delts which has a ton of drop sets.

The fairly low volume in this week is likely in preparation for the next week which appears to include a massive amount of volume (including 2/day).

To date my impressions of the program are a little mixed. There is a lot of chest and quad work, but not a lot of rear delt or trap work, which is something I would do differently if I were designing the program as those are real “man-making” body parts in my mind.

We’ll see how I feel at the end of the next week (if I can walk).

    Hey man. I’m currently doing mi40x with a shred meal plan. You are one week faster than me. Please keep writing this log and post some results. I would really love to know if you have some profress. I see some slight positive on my body and a 4 pack. And that’s it. Anything else still looks sort of the same
