Back & Abs
Back To Top

Tommi Thorvildsen trains in Gold's Gym, Venice (The Mecca of Bodybuilding), where he has been training for the previous two years. He is wearing a Max Muscle top.

  • Machine Pulldowns (five sets).
  • Wide Grip Overhand Chin Ups (three sets).
  • Bent Over Rows (using 315, 405 lbs for two sets of 7 reps).
  • Cable Rows (three sets).
  • Machine Rows (two sets).
  • Hyperextensions (135, 135, 135 lbs used for resistance).


Tommi went up to the whole stack for the cable rows - obviously he's got some strength, which is especially amazing given that he is on a diet. After his first set of cable rows, he hits some poses including a front lat spread, right arm pose, front double biceps, and rear lat spread. After his back workout is complete, he poses in his trunks, and hits the following poses:

  • Front Lat Spread.
  • Abs Pose.
  • Left Side Chest.
  • Back Double Biceps.
  • Back Lat Spread.
  • Most Muscular.


Afterwards, Tommi trains his abs, hitting the following split:

  • Hanging Leg Raises (three sets).
  • Machine Weighted Crunches (two sets).


Chest
Back To Top

Tommi trained chest next, hitting the following split:

  • Smith Machine Incline Bench Press (135, 225, 315, 365, 275, 185 lbs).
  • Incline Flyes (four sets).
  • Hammer Strength (three sets).
  • Dumbbell Pullovers (three sets).
  • Cable Crossovers (three sets).


Tommi did some posing after his first set of incline flyes, and Lou Ferrigno shows up, who was one of Tommi's idols growing up. Tommi also hit a most muscular pose after his first set of dumbbell pullovers.

Next, Tommi hit his calves, using the following routine:

  • Seated Calve Raises (four sets).
  • Seated Calve Raises - Plate Loaded (two sets).


Tommi's friend Eric, who is a Canadian Nationals competitor, shows up. Tommi does some calves posing to show his progress.

Day 3: Food Prep
Back To Top

Tommi lives in Marina Del Rey and shows us his home. He also shows us a little of the cooking techniques he uses. He cooks using a George Foreman grill and shares with us some of his nutrition tips. Tommi drinks a shake after training (whey protein isolate, and also takes a lot of vitamins (like Ronnie Coleman, and Jay Cutler). He takes the following vitamins regularly:
  • Megabolic Megapak.
  • Calcium / Magnesium / Zinc.
  • Potassium.
  • Aspirin.
  • Vitamin C.
  • Glucosamine.
  • Cuteine.
  • Niacin (B3).
  • Vitamin B6.
  • Saw Palmetto.
  • L-Taurisine.
  • Arginine.
  • Glucine.
  • 5-HTP.
  • Vitamin E.


Tommi eats seven meals each day, one of which is a protein shake, and two of which are low in carbohydrates.

Day 4: Quads / Hamstrings
Back To Top

Tommi's routine for quads looks like this:
  • Leg Extensions (two sets).
  • Smith Machine Squats With Training Belt & Knee Wraps (405, 495X8, 585X11, 675X5).
  • Leg Press (two sets).
Tommi did some stretching after his first set of leg extensions and explained that he had torn his left thigh from front squatting 495. He did some leg posing after his second set of leg extensions. What impressed me the most was his incredible strength - he did Smith machine squats with 675 pounds for five reps - if you put these numbers in the one rep max calculator, this adds up to 788 pounds. Not to mention, this was not his first set, and obviously by the time of that set he had already been exerting himself AND he was into his cutting diet for contest AND getting over a thigh injury - amazing! I'm not the first person to comment on Tommi's great strength, and I won't be the last if he keeps it up, either.

Next, Tommi went on to train his hamstrings, with the following routine:

  • Step Up Lunges (two sets).
  • Single Lying Leg Curls (three sets).
  • Ham Tractor (three sets).
  • Straight Legged Deadlifts (two sets).


Food Shopping
Back To Top

In this sequence, Tommi headed to the grocery store to pick up some bodybuilding foods. Bodybuilding is mostly about diet - don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Hard training will make a good diet work to produce results, but you can train as hard as you want and you won't gain an ounce of muscle without a proper diet. As long as you remember that and remember to eat the right amount of the right kind of calories, you should be ok. Tommi obviously knows what he's doing in terms of diet, since he's built a world class physique with his knowledge.

Biceps / Triceps / Cardio
Back To Top

Tommi's routine for biceps and triceps looked like this:

  • Long Bar Pulldowns (three sets).
  • Machine Preacher Curls (three sets).
  • Triceps Dumbbell Overhead Press (two sets).
  • Cable Curls (two sets).
  • Single Arm Triceps Reverse Curls (two sets).


Tommi then poses with his shorts on, hitting the following poses:

  • Side Pose.
  • Right Side Chest.
  • Quads.
  • Abs / Thigh.
  • Front Posing.
  • Front Double Biceps.
  • Left Side Chest.


Afterwards, Tommi hits the treadmill, to get in a cardio session.

Shoulders
Back To Top

  • Seated Side Lateral Raises (four sets).
  • Machine Lateral Raises (four sets).
  • Machine Press (three sets).
  • Cable Side Lateral Raises.
  • Bent Over Lateral Raises.
  • Machine Shrugs.


After he finishes his set, we see some footage from the 2004 Mr. Olympia expo.

Overall, I quite enjoyed the DVD. What impressed me the most what Tommi's drive and determination as well as his incredible strength while dieting. It's obvious he loves bodybuilding and I'm happy that he has been able to make a career out of it. I wish him the best of luck in the future - he deserves it!
