I just completed my 2nd week of my Prime Male Strength Training series. Prime Male is a natural testosterone booster that I’m taking. And I’m documenting my progress in the gym each week.
This week consisted of some heavy lifting. I also made some adjustments to my workouts and workout schedule. I’ll go over this week’s training split below.
Prime Male Week 2 Workouts
I typically workout 5 days a week (Monday through Friday). But I took a day off this week and just trained 4 days. Here’s this week’s Prime Male Strength Training workout routine:
- Back and Biceps
- Chest and Triceps
- Shoulders and Traps
Powerbuilding Style Workouts on Prime Male
I’m going to take you through the highlights of my workouts for this week. I’m training for strength but my workouts cater to more of a powerbuilding style.
Powerbuilding is a combination of lifting heavy weights and pumping out higher reps. From my experience, this helps build strength and muscle mass.
- Deadlifts and barbell rows are my key mass building exercises for back day. I started out with deadlifts and worked my way up to doing two final heavy sets. I followed that with heavy barbell rows. After deads and rows it was all about pumping out reps for the exercises that followed.
- I trained chest on Tuesday and Shoulders Friday. I used the same concept for both workouts. I went heavy on the first exercise and eased into more reps for the exercises that followed.
- Legs are a different beast for me. I don’t go light by any means. However, I do keep my reps higher for legs than my upper body workouts. I rarely go below 8 reps for legs. It’s usually 12 reps or more. My legs respond best to high volume and high reps.
- I trained arms after back and chest. I usually pick 2 exercises for biceps and 2 for triceps. And in this case, I trained biceps after back and triceps after chest. I keep the reps between 8-12 and will often incorporate drop sets for the final set.
Prime Male Test Booster Update
I’ve got two weeks left of my Prime Male test booster. If I recall, this is the 4th or 5th time I’ve taken it. My goal is for this test booster to assist in gaining strength and growing the muscle tissue.
So far, I’m happy with my results from this test booster. Granted, it’s only been two weeks. But I feel like I have the drive to train harder and push more weight. And I feel better overall.
An example is this morning’s shoulder workout. I started with seated barbell press and worked my way up to 225 lbs. Thats heavy for me. You can check out the workout video below.
Shoulder Workout Video
Here’s a quick video I shot of my final set of seated barbell press. I believe this was my 5th set. I use the pyramid method, going up a little each set. This is a safer way to train rather. It allows your muscles to be warmed up before going super heavy.
I’ll be posting another update next Friday so stay tuned!
Train with Passion,
