I'm gearing up, to tear it up! Set some maxes yesterday, will do the rest later today. Then time for calculations for weight progression over the next 10-12 weeks. I'll be starting a lot lower than what I can do, and slowly work my way up to a new max, hopefilly 25% over what I'm at now...and then repeat with new calculations after 8 weeks.

I'm satisfied with the numbers I was able to pull, but would have liked to get a bit heavier. I know my home gym was restricting me on Lat Pull downs, and my flat bench max could have been a bit higher, but I caught the J-hook on the way up and that threw off a little. I should have put the bar back, reset and tried again but I just wanted it done.

Currently looking at :

Flat - 200 - PR, sort of..Not sure if I could have done this before, but I never even tried to bench 200. I tried, I succeeded, I'm happy with it. Got to start somewhere...
Flye - 180

Lat Pull Down - 160
Low Row - 185 - I F'ing love this move..
Bent Row - 150(estimated) Will start with that as max, and go from there. Never done any bent rows with consistency before, so better to start light and work up..

I'll calculate down to about 45-50% of where I'm at above, and plan out for weekly 5Lb increases on heavy lifts, and 10Lbs every 2 weeks for light lifts...more to come later tonight..

Default I'm all ****ed up!

What a night, what a show! Yet again, this guy absolutly lit the place up for 2 1/2 hours...covered some bon jovi, clash, allmans and played a bunch of his own classics...

yeah, and the hangover was like a state of limbo. I had no idea what the hell was going on when I opened my eyes.. And strangely enough, I went to the super market for milk, DD for a sandwich and hash browns, and then stopped off at the driving range to hit golf balls in 35 degree weather at 9:30am.....

I did yard work all day, cleared about 1/4 acre of vines from the ground connected to the tree branches above. I picked a fight with one vine, and I got whipped in the face. I now have nice 5 inch scratch across my brow, and a few smaller scrapes across the back of my ankles from walking through it... Sucks donkey ass.

Anyway, 1 day after today..feeling good about the run. Need to go back and buy more food for the week. No gym membership either. I'm waiting to see if they call me to make a better offer, but now I'll live using my own gym at home.. Still need to work the numbers for weight progression, probably tomorrow night..

All done for tonight....going out to play 9 holes at 9:45am, so at the range by 9, at DD by 8:30, awake at 8:00am...yeah, good night. :zzzzzzz:

Default No more waiting...

I'm finally back in the gym tomorrow..been over a month since I was able to lift good and heavy.. Looking to bulk for 8-10 weeks...got the routine and diet all worked out on paper...may be moving to a gym in the next few weeks if I get them to drop the damn enrollment fee, but for now staying at home and using what I have, it's enough for now..

Still tired from a long weekend, a lot of being outside in the cool air....I feel like I could go to bed right now..but I need to go food shopping and do laundry...then lots of sleep...again...:zzzzzzzzzzzzz:

Default And here we go!!!

So I've already made one change to my diet, by increasing my snack size. I figured 1/2 oz of nuts would be a good size....then I realized how little 1/2 oz really was, so now it's a full ounce for snack time. Other than that, got everything else worked out right on paper...diet, check...routine, check....supps, check...

Looking forward to a nice easy workout session to get things moving again, but really waiting to make some pain on Wednesday and Thursday...

Default Chest and Legs

First day on the new diet and routine, and so far so F'ing good! I may need to bump up the cals a bit to fight some hunger on the light days, but other than that it's all very yummy, and easy to eat. Nothing funky, just simple foods...and a complicated routine.. Ok, so not really complicated..but I always overthink stuff like this....

Diet This is what I will eat on M-Tu-F, regardless of opinions..it works for me..

Breakfast: 3 eggs, slice of toast w/butter
Snacks: 1oz peanuts
Lunch: 4oz chicken and 1/2c rice pilaf
Dinner: 6oz lean beef, slice of provo cheese, slice of bacon
Pre: Custom mix of - Vitargo VS2 and BCAAs..mixed with grape powerade, taken with Hemavol and C-Bol
Post: 1 scoop Syntha-6, 1 scoop VS2, mixed with 2c water
Bedtime: 1 scoop Cassein

Session Summary These are all way light, some as light as 40% 1RM...weights will progressively move up, at a rate of +10 every 2 weeks..

Flat Press - 100 x15 reps x5 sets
Chest Fly - 90 x20 reps x3 sets

Squat - 130 x15 reps x5 sets
Calf Raises - 135 x15 reps x5 sets


Other Supps

BioForge - Test Booster - Will be cycling through 3 different test boosters over 12 weeks
E-Bol - Ecdy - Helps with protein synthesis and makes me hungry
Hemavol - Pumps and Energy - I love this stuff, always feel good and have a great session with it.
Beta Alanine - Muscle Endurance
TT-33 - Fat Burner
C-Bol - Creatine Nitrate
IntraBolic - One of the best Intra mixes you can buy IMO..
LG BC+EAA - Always good to have extra BCAAs, and this stuff tastes pretty goo\d and does the job.

Multi-V, Joint-V, Fish Oil, CLA, Fiber Tabs round out the supps bill...I know it sounds like a lot, but I find that it works, for me. I understand hard work in the gym is what will make my muscles grow, but I also feel having the support of the supps makes a positive difference.

Overall, I rate today 7/10...sounds low, but I know things will only get better. Looking forward to another light day tomorrow for Back and Shoulders...then W&Th are the real working days....strangely enough, I'm looking forward to the DOMS......

Default Still pumped, and ready for more!!

Yeah...Hell Yeah!

Another solid workout today. Had a few seconds I wanted to drop some reps, but I said to myself **** no, and pushed myself to finish. I'm really starting to feel the high rep count quickly.. Tomorrow brings the first heavy day, chest and legs. Using a 5/3/1 rep scheme, sort of. More to explain on that tomorrow...

Diet

Same as yesterday...very yummy

Session Summary Again, a light day with high reps, focusing on a good stretch and form..

Lat Pull Down - 90 w/ 3 sets x20 reps with a wide overhand grip, 3 sets x20 reps with a narrow underhand grip.

Smith BTN OH Press - 5 sets x15 reps @ 50Lbs..I don't count the weight of the smith bar piece. Used a limited, slow ROM.

BB Shrugs - 120 x15 reps x5 sets - Held for a 2 second pinch at the top

DB Lat Raises - One of my weakest points..did a mix of side and front with 10 and 20 DBs...



I give today an 8/10..felt good, wanted more but stayed in control to maintain consistency and stick to my plan of attack...
