My Ride: no
Lat pull downs: One set long bar with wide grip (hands at the end of the bar) and one set closed grip (with the handle used for seated rows). I repeat those two exercises pyramid style for a total of 10 sets (or 5 sets each...going back and forth)

Hammer Strength machine: This machine is at most gyms. It is a close grip pull down and in movement (in between pull downs and rows)....pyramid style (going up in increments of 25 on each side, then back down).

Seated row: Wide grip is better, but closed will do...pyramid style.

Reverse Fly's: Use the fly machine to do reverse fly's. This is good for getting back definition...pyramid style.

Pull-ups: 3 sets of as many as i can do.

I dont do pyramids. I think its great for an advanced lifter though.

I do 3 sets of each exercise. High reps for toning.

Pull-ups are excellent alternative to Lat pull downs, though not a real substitute. When I didnt have access to the Lat pull down I would always do pull ups. I wouldnt do both though. They target the same muscle group so it becomes redundant.

Also if you dont have access to a seated row machine then do Bent Over rows. Again its not a real subsititute, but a great a alternative.

The upper back is best developed via pulleys/cables. While the chest is best developed by free weights (barbell preferebly).

Okay, here is another dilemma that I often encounter. I generally train in the evenings, and it isn't uncommon for me to arrive home after 12am. I'm constantly on the go, and it is difficult for me to eat at home. As a result of my schedule, I'm constantly eating fast food.......daily . While I'm in great shape currently, I would like to improve my diet. When I'm unable to eat at home, what advice would you give as far as items on fast food menus? Are there any decent products that you'd recommend?

Only fast food I can recommend is subway or quiznos. Turkey or Chicken on wheat no mayo and no cheese loaded with veggies. Nothing else. All the burger places have way too much grease and sh1tty oils.

If you want to be efficient on the road. Just buy 2 foot long subs around lunch time. Eat half a sandwich every 3-4 hours. Youll be all right throughout the day.

I'm like that too, but i think i got lucky genetically. At work there's a mc'donalds and del taco across the street, so im eating either one for lunch everyday. I never watch what i eat, in n out, fast fatty foods all the time....but im still 4.9% body fat........how? I really dunno...but it would suck to have to sit there and calculate what you can and can't eat. I know that there are other side effects (heart, cholesterol, etc.), but as for getting fat...i can't.

Are you my twin? I eat Del Taco almost every single day bro. I never watch what I eat either. I attribute it to genetics.

bimmerchop, I am 5'10"......180 lbs.

I'm back (... ), and I have yet another favor to ask of the resident bulkmasters. Could you please provide me with an arm workout routine specifically meant to tone? My arms are already a nice size, and they are fairly toned currently, but more tone wouldn't hurt. I would also like to increase my forearm size slightly. Thanks in advance guys.
