  1. Wow. Dude. Finally up to 405 DL, cant believe it. And thinking about 275 bench??
    I feel bad for cutting right now... your catching up, and you already got me in legs!
    Awesome, job.
    Also what are the calithestenics (bleh spelling) and stuff you been doing?
    Im going to start building a flexibility routine in my workouts, pass the info along if you dont mind sharing.

    I know, to tell you the truth I wasn't really so sure about this cycle in like week 3, but now that I'm ending week 5 and my strength is going through the roof and I'm looking pretty beast I would recommend it to anyone.

    Here is my calisthenic warm up routine, don't know the names of a lot of the stuff so I'll do my best:

    Arm Rotations-5 forward, 5 backward
    Standing Torso Rotations-10(2 count, put hands together so elbows face straight out to your sides then thrust your elbow behind you while looking straight forward to twist your upper torso)
    Walk Out Push Ups-5
    Good Mornings-10
    Don't know what to call it but you get in a push up position and one leg at a time you bring your leg forward and put your foot flat on the ground on the outside of your hand-5 each side
    Leg Circles-5 forward, 5 backward(stand normal with feet shoulder width apart, make a large circle with your foot and then return it to the starting position, this is good for your hips)
    Hindu Pushups-5

    Not always in that order, works great though.

    Very interesting, may give this a try!
    It's easy, just lift heavy!

  5. Day 34 - Shoulders

    Machine Shoulder Press-180x6, 200x6, 200x5, 180x4, 180x4
    Upright Rows-70x6, 70x6, 70x5, 70x6, 70x6
    SS
    Decline Cross Knee Crunches-10, 10, 10, 10, 10
    Arnold Presses-60x6, 60x5, 60x4, 55x6, 55x5
    Cable Front Raises-20x6, 15x6 (had to cheat way too much on 20)
    SS
    Cable Shoulder Press-30x6, 30x6
    SS
    Cable Lateral Raise-15x6, 10x6 (again cheating too much on first set)
    SS
    Cable Rear Raise-15x6, 15x6
    DB Shrugs-180x6, 200x6, 200x6

    I might switch out the machine presses for military presses, I think even though I don't have a spotter it may still be better. The machine bothers my shoulder since I have to start at the bottom of the movement, don't have this problem on a barbell military press. Also think I may need to adjust the cable to a different height for rear delt raises, it doesn't seem right that I can comfortably do higher weight on rear delts than laterals. Unless my rear delts have just gone beast mode lol.

  6. I've decided rather than going 800/1000/1200 on stano the last 3 weeks I'm gonna do it 1000/1000/1000, so I'll be starting 1g today. Also taking a rest day for today, they've got me switching schedules again at work and I barely slept last night. Hittin' arms hard tomorrow!

    That sounds like a good approach man. Slow steady gains at that dosage split. Rest up and leave a mutha focking murder scene tomorrow!

    Hope so man! I'm lovin' this cycle but don't really feel like I'm on, wonder if it's just because it's my second cycle now so not as crazy as the first. Either that or when I come off it's gonna all come clear to me lol.

    Lol yeah probably. All that matters is I'm bigger, and stronger! About to down some protein, make me some mo' gains. I'm going to push myself harder on eating. I definitely ate a lot more today than I have been lately, been too long since my weight went up I wanna end this sh!t a little over 180 for sure.

    Tricep Pullovers-115x6, 130x6, 130x6, 130x6, 130x6

    Didn't do forearms today, I was getting a little pain in my forearms during some of the exercises. I'm not sure if this is because of something in the gym, or because I was loading crap on pallets all day today but either way decided to rest the forearms this week. Been getting some sick pumps on this stano though, especially arms and shoulders. Sh!ts balloon up and I look twice my size it's awesome.

  13. Day 37 - Legs

    Squats-275x6, 315x4, *PR* 385x1 *PR*, 315x4, 335x2
    Calf Raises-250x6, 250x6, 250x6, 250x6, 250x4
    SS
    Hamstring Curls-125x6, 140x6, 140x6, 140x6, 155x5
    Quad Extensions-200x6, 215x6, 215x6, 215x6, 215x6
    SS
    Hanging Leg Raise-8, 10, 6, 5, 6

    Daaaaang man that was a rough leg day! I tried to lift 405 initially on the third set of squats, but only ended up going halfway down and knew I was gonna fall for sure so shot right back up. New squat PR of 385 though which puts me in the 1000 club! Finally. Still want to max bench tomorrow gonna try to get a buddy of mine to come spot me.

    Oh almost forgot to mention that during my 5 min cardio preworkout I was walking on an incline on the treadmill and I got the worst fking back pumps I've had all cycle, maybe the stano is just really starting to hit or maybe it's from upping it to 1000 idk. Went to locker room and washed down a large chunk of taurine, then added some to my water bottle and they got a little better before the end of my workout though.

    Dude, Im downing 2000 mg Taurine with my morning dose of Hdrol/Stano & 4000mg with my 2nd dose of Hdrol/Stano. Usually the heavier dose before my workout. It helps ALOT.

  15. Alright so today was supposed to be chest but I forgot my gym bag at home so chest will be tomorrow then back and shoulders on the weekend. I did max out bench today though, we have like a little mini gym at work that has a bench, so I had a coworker spot me. Couldn't do my whole chest routine in there though because we aren't supposed to work out in there in work boots and like I said I forgot my stuff. I got a PR of 235, was hoping for more but can't complain too much about a new PR lol.

    Already making it difficult for mx to hit that gym huh? Hopefully I get my pilot slot so I can be one of those dick bags! Lol.

    Congrats on PR. moving up to the big boy level. Hit heavy bench couple days ago. Still able to rep 205 even though I'm 20 lbs lighter!

    You're killing it bro. Awesome news!

    Thanks a lot man! I'm also working on my "powerlifting style" flat bench, and I think it's really better on my shoulder and much easier to press higher weight. Here's a walkthrough of my setup/lift, the only part I do bb style is I bring it down to the nipples rather than the bottom of the rib cage area and I go slowly trying to contract the chest fully. I get on dat bench, then I line my chin up with the bar and grasp it underhand, I put my feet back so that my thighs are pointed slightly downward, then I arch my back as much as I can so that my eyes are lined up with the bar and the top of my traps are pressed against the bench, keeping my shoulders back I flex my chest and lats as hard as I can and use my lats to dislodge the bar so that I don't damage my shoulders, then I bring the weight down to nipples(if maxing either all the way to chest or about an inch above, if repping down to 90 and back to keep weight mainly on chest), also tuck elbows but not all the way in. Keep in mind though I am doing a powerlifting style bench my goal is bodybuilding so the few things I do differently than a powerlifter for a reason, but I believe in doing the big 3 compound movements heavy to build overall mass and strength.

    Day 39 - Chest

    Flat BB Bench-185x6, 205x4, 185x6, 195x6, 195x6
    Incline DB Bench-120x6, 140x6, 140x6, 120x6, 120x6
    Cable Fly(from floor)-40x6, 50x6, 50x6, 50x6, 50x6
    Pec Deck-110x6, 125x4, 115x4, 115x5, 115x4
    Roman Chairs-80x20, 100x10, 120x4, 100x8, 100x6

    Did cable flys instead of pullovers to shock my chest a little and see what it would feel like to hit an extra fly. I liked it but will be back to pullovers next week since I'm still trying to get my serratus to really pop a little more. I feel like I fkin KILLED the roman chairs, my abs had the hugest pump I've ever felt in them. I was flexing them in the mirror at the gym after the workout and they looked ripped because of the huge pump, which makes me think my BF isn't as bad as I thought in my stomach area I think I just need to get my abs a little bigger. May start doing roman chairs more often.

    On another note since I stopped the SD no matter how much I eat I can't seem to gain anymore and I'm starting to think this may be the nature of the stano. Maybe I'm just making excuses but my muscles are definitely hardening up, and I'm gaining great strength and looking pretty shredded when I flex(striations bro) so I think the stano is doing it's job and I'm definitely not upset. Won't stop me from continuing to eat bulk style though. Also I am maintaining weight, I been staying at 177-178 consistently.

  18. Alright so my driver's side windshield wiper linkage came apart, a bushing deteriorated and fell out, and so my wiper stopped working while I was driving home from work in the rain. I spent pretty much all day driving around to different places trying to find a new replacement, didn't find one but they're really cheap so ordered one online. So I'm moving my workout forward one day this week so back will be sunday and then on monday which is normally rest I'll do shoulders and then start next week as normal on tuesday.

    Got some changes coming to my diet since I haven't been gaining weight, just some stuff to increase calories/protein. Major change will be more beef, higher calories and higher protein = win win for bulk. I may also switch to whole milk, as I currently drink skim or 2%. Today for dinner I ate 3 homemade 1/4lb burgers, a delicious 60g of protein and about 1k cals planning on making some more tomorrow.

  19. I like it dude, the three of us are closing the gap (with drizzie having prolly the most experience) but heading in different exercise directions; Bb'ing, endurance(combat ****), powerlifting.

    My cuts going steady so far will pic you guys when I can. Have you thrown in any cleans/snatches in yet? Added those type of things with a flexibility routine and its pretty sweet.

    Goals after this btw? Cut, recomp?

    Yeah it's interesting how we're all pursuing these different goals when all of us had completely different goals back when we were working out together. It's pretty cool.

    I did cleans for awhile but I just don't see anywhere I would like to add them in or anything I'd like to switch them out with right now. I did clean and presses for awhile but I just gravitated away from them for whatever reason. I'm sure I'll eventually revisit them at some point though.

    Goal is lean bulk, but I seem to be getting more of a recomp effect from the stano so far, though was bulking fine on SD(no surprises here lol). That's why I'm making a few diet changes now I need to make sure I continue to bulk now and off the cycle but with weight going up it's getting more difficult now for me to add lbs. Hoping adding in more beef is gonna do the trick. Cows are big, eat the cows, gain their powers, make all kindz of gainz.

  21. You stopped doing cleans cuz you lazy fat boy! Cleans three days a week. Thinking about starting clean/squats soon.

    Win. lmao although it is true

  23. Day 41 - Back

    Deadlifts-315x4, 315x3, 315x3, 315x2, 315x2
    UH Pullups-14, 8, 6, 5, 5, 6, 6
    Close Grip T-Bar-90x6, 115x6, 115x5, 115x6, 115x5(weight without bar)
    UH Pulldowns-200x6, 200x6, 210x5, 210x5, 210x3

    Back day went pretty fkin bad ass. Pull ups are getting much easier UH. For the first time in the gym I had someone who couldn't hang with me try to jump in lol. A dude came up when I was setting up for DL and asked if he could work in with me and I told him I'm trying to increase my reps with 315 so I'm lifting that every set and he said "nevermind I don't wanna hold you back" lol. Also had to dose a lot of taurine PWO cuz this 1g stano is makin' some good back pumps.

    Day 42 - Shoulders

    Military Press-95x6, 135x6, 135x6, 135x4, 135x4
    Upright Rows-70x6, 70x6, 80x6, 80x6, 80x4
    Arnold Presses-60sx6, 60sx6, 60sx6, 65sx4, 65sx4,
    Cable Front Raise-15x6, 15x6
    SS
    Cable Shoulder Press-35x6, 35x6
    SS
    Cable Lateral Raise-15x6, 10x6
    SS
    Cable Rear Delt Raise-15x6, 15x6
    Shrugs-100sx6, 130sx2, 100sx6

    Got to the gym a little late and didn't feel at all like working out so I took half a scoop of Hyper FX(BSN, bleh) that I've had in my gym bag forever cuz I never use preworkouts, and DAM MAN I was more focused and beastlike I've felt in the gym in awhile! I really hate BSN products, and would like to attribute this to the fact that I haven't used a PWO in months, but that's what I had on hand and it worked well. Also did about 5 or 6 sets of a mix of hanging leg raises and decline cross knees. My abs are starting to show a lot better, not sure if it's from the stano or the fact that I've been hitting abs about 3x more often than before, but probably a bit of both. Feeling great eating like a beast. Today was the highest protein I think I've taken in on any day of the cycle, 3000 calories 280g protein, 305 carbs, 81 fat wish I could've ate more was supposed to have 2 chicken breasts on top of that but got pulled away for a few hours at worked and missed some crucial feedin' time. Still great macros, I'm not upset.

  24. Day 44 - Arms

    I'm gonna start putting my cable exercises as 1/2 the weight of what I was putting. Reason is I always doubled it because a friend told me that was what you were supposed to do a long time ago, basically I think this is wrong and feel kinda dumb so I'm just gonna put what it says on the weight stack for cables from now on. So if it seemed like my cable weights were ridiculous before that's probably why... anyway:

    Machine Bicep Curl-100x6, 110x6, 120x5, 120x5, 120x5(machine has 2 stacks so it's 1/2 that weight each arm)
    Cable Pushdowns-57.5x9, 72.5x6, 80x6, 80x6, 80x5
    Cable Curls-50x6, 57.5x6, 57.5x6, 57.5x6, 57.5x6
    Lying One Arm Tricep Extension-25x6, 35x6(major cheating on left arm), 25x6, 30x6, 30x6
    Incline DB Curls-30x6, 35x6, 35x4, 35x4, 35x4
    Cable Tricep Pullovers-50x6, 65x6, 65x6, 72.5x6, 72.5x4

    Okay so I felt alright in the gym but honestly was a little depressed today about arms cuz a coworker brought in some measuring tape and my upper arm(right) only measured 14.5" flexed. Was hoping for 15 by now flexed. But just looked back at some of my old measurements from February and I was measuring 12.5 relaxed on arms then, and I remembered flexed I had 1 inch more so that means I've actually gained about an inch on arms this year! So I was depressed for no reason lol. Doing great!

    Here is a crazy transformation for you guys, thought I'd throw it up for fun. First pic is about two and a half years ago, at the time I had been lifting extremely inconsistently for about a year and had no idea what I was doing either(weight was around 140), second is a progress pic from earlier in this log.
