I just finished my last powerbuilding workout of the week. It’s been all about getting stronger. But I’ve also been integrating bodybuilding training, which is why I call these powerbuilding workouts. My goal is a combination of strength building and enhancing my body composition.
This was week 5 of my Prime Male Strength Training series (this week I changed ‘strength training’ to powerbuilding in the title). And I thought I would fall behind a little this week as I have been fighting a cold. So I actually took Monday and Tuesday off from the gym. This gave me only 3 workouts this week.
Push, Pull, Legs Powerbuilding Workouts
In the rare event that I only get 3 days to workout within a week, I resort to the old school push, pull, legs workout. I don’t use that particular order, but the concept is to hit every major muscle within 3 workouts.
Even though I was feeling under the weather, I continued taking my Prime Male test booster every day. I don’t know if that helped me recover any faster, but I would venture to say it did. Prime Male is very nutrient-dense and that’s what our bodies need. Nutrients.
I’m going to list each powerbuilding workout I did below. Again, I didn’t do the typical push, pull, legs order. I like to start out my workouts for the week with back.
Prime Male Workout – Pull
Wednesday I trained back and biceps. This was my pull day. I started out with my usual deadlifts but didn’t go quite as heavy being that I was recovering from a cold. Here’s the pull workout:
- Barbell Rows
- Dumbbell Rows
- Lat Pulldowns
- Dumbbell Hammer Curls
- Preacher Curls
Prime Male Workout – Legs
Yesterday (Thursday) I trained legs. I generally don’t like to train legs after back, especially if I do deadlifts on back day. I’ve been squatting on the Smith Machine lately on leg day so that’s a lot of pressure on my lower back. However, I decided to train legs anyway. I wanted to give my upper body a day of rest between the push and pull.
- Leg Press – 5 rest-pause sets
- Squats – 4 x 10
- Leg Extensions – 7 x 12
- Plate-Loaded Squat Machine – 4 x 12 (drop set on final set)
Prime Male Workout – Push
This morning (Friday) was my push workout and I trained chest and triceps. I was a little tired from fighting this cold and I had two pretty heavy workout days prior. But I ‘pushed’ through it.
- Bench Press – 5 x 10, 4, 3, 1, 1
- Incline Bench Press – 4 x 10
- Cable Crossovers – 3 x 12
- Seated Overhead Triceps Extensions – 4 x 12
- Rope Pressdowns – 4 x 12
Prime Male Test Booster with Powerbuilding Workouts
I’ve been documenting my strength training workout results using Prime Male for 5 weeks now. I’m really impressed with the results. At 41 years old, I’m progressively getting stronger.
The results are never as quick as we want them, whether we’re taking a test booster or not. But I can say that I’ve gotten stronger with Prime Male faster than I would have without it.
Even though I was a little sick this week I was still able to train a few days. I expect to rest over the weekend and hit it really hard on Monday. I’ll be back on my normal 5-day powerbuilding workout routine.
