Tomahawk Training with M-Sten RX(Sponsored)

As far as shrugs go I try to make sure I pull them back more than up. Trying to squeeze my shoulder blades together. Seems to focus on the traps more than just bouncing the bar up and down.
I am taking ZMK now and I am considering 3Z by AI like you said. Just feels like my mind races a bit when I try to sleep.

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

Sweet Baby Ray's ftw. If people give you a hard time about the boatloads of sugar, tell them you're 'cultivating mass' and they wish they could eat like you have to. Alls im sayin is, Coleman pounded that masterpiece and he made it work for him just fine.
I've taken some 3Z samples, def makes a difference. Doesn't necessarily grant deep sleep, but makes it easier to go to sleep and back to sleep if you wake to pee or w/e. Second time I took it I slept through my alarm for work for the first time ever; it goes off like a cannon. So I'll vouch for that stuff - it's definitely not snake oil.

That's so sick that 475 is a speed pull for you, that's my most recent max lol. Got 460 for a double no sweat yesterday though, so hopefully I'll be able to pull like you some day at least. Workouts are looking mean man.

Did some shoulders today. When I got there some guys I know were talking about strict standing press. 2 of them crossfit. The 3rd was seeing how much he could total with press, deadlift, and squat. Since I had never maxed on press I decided to join him.
205 went up easy.
225 was still easy.
245 went up fairly easy.
265 just felt off when I started and didn't get it. Decided to go with it since it is my bodyweight. I know bodyweight for press is pretty decent.
Then I started my normal workout.
Seated bb press fat gripz elect 125/155/185/205/225 first time getting 225 for this and it looked and felt easy
Up right cable rows psr
Standing db lateral raise 2 sets of 10 reps 45/45
Close grip bench fat grips elect 225/245/265/285/305 most I have done. Didn't feel great but not a struggle by any means.
Reverse grip bench 2 sets of 10 reps 225/225
Seated overhead db ext 2 sets of 10 reps with 2nd set negatives 120/120 might have to start upping the reps since that is the heaviest db the place has. Got to love when I see others use the 120 for this and compare form.
Also it was kind of funny doing the standing press. The other guy got 175 at 220. The crossfitter I know got 185 at 185. Then the other crossfitter I didn't know said he got 135. I think it blew their might how much I could do. Got to love when you make others go wtf. Standing press isn't exactly something I work on a lot. Up until messing around with 531 recently I seemed to always hurt myself while doing any kind of standing press.
Debating what I want to do as far as lifting tomorrow. Legs is next up but I am going to a get together tomorrow night. It is no fun to pump up my legs for that. Granted it will be a bunch of couples ftl(oss) haha. On top of that it would mean my next workout on Monday would be chest and biceps. I do not like the idea of doing that at the start of the new year.

Earlier did chest and biceps. Nothing too special but a few increases.
Incline BB ELECT sets of 3s fat gripz started heavier today 165/205/235/265/295 Ya I did explosive reps with 295 on incline haha. Kind of makes one go WTF. These numbers were guesstimating my max at 345.
Decline BB ELECT sets of 3 fat gripz 205/245/285/315/345 These numbers were guesstimating my max at 405.
DB pullovers 2 sets of 10 with 85/85
Lat pulldowns 3 sets of 8 reps
BB curls PSR 50/70/90/100/110 Havent tried progressing on these but seem to get the job done
Close grip lat pulldowns underhand PSR 3 mini sets
Hammer curls 2 sets of 10 with 55s
Not a bad workout if you ask me. Thought about testing out my flat BB press today but decided against it since I did do shoulders and triceps last night. I think I will test it out soon though. The idea of pressing 405 sounds pretty awesome. Pretty sure that is what I will attempt with a decent spotter. The most I have done is 385 before but I definitely feel stronger now. These workouts are great for me.

I went ahead and ordered another bottle of M-Sten RX. Hopefully wont miss a dose but I had went back and forth with the idea of a 2nd bottle. Decided I can always stop any time I want. Going to add 4-DHEA by AMS. Got a few bottle I can use and start tomorrow. Hopefully it will help with the lethargy which has been my main complaint.

Uhhh hell no haha.Originally Posted by thebigt
Felt like morning death again today. Basically a zombie till I go lift. Not sure if it is a combo of lethargy and sleep apnea though. It seemed like my sleep apnea was in check.
Todays workout was pretty blah. Way too many people. Had a hard time finding weights for squats. Had to use 35s and 25s because there were no 45s left. Plus had my first bout of back pumps for this cycle. They were real bad.
Squats 305*5, 355*3, 395*8
Front squats 3 sets of 12 with 185
Seated leg curls psr
Stiff leg deadlifts 2 sets of 10 with 245
Decided to call it a day after that. Not terribly bad but not my usual workout. My back was killing me today. Probably going to take some taurine throughout the day tomorrow.
01-08-2013, 02:26 AM
It wasnt exactly the most complete leg workout but damn my quads are hurting. I have that familiar pain in them. I guess the front squats did it. Quads feel like they want to lock up on me. Definitely need to get some good sleep tonight. Need to get some parts ordered for my CPAP machine. Training with this intensity requires some recovery. I was feeling like I was going to die during my workout and probably looked like it too. Of course the gym was PACKED with people. I have to say I love/hate it at the same time. Not exactly a people person especially when I lift but damn some of the females are so sexy. Saw this super petite white girl who probably weighs 1/3 of me and couldnt help but stare haha. This cycle might have me dragging ass but my libido isnt down.
Spent my night watching football. Not much of a game. Glad to see the SEC win another one. Kind of funny to hear some ESPN people say ND is built like an SEC team.

will be watching this next half of your run closely.
will you be going up to 30mg at all, or staying 20mg thruout?

That was a straight up beat down haha. Like they say men against boys which is funny when you consider Bama has a young team. Also what was up with them passing at Milliner all night? He seemed to be the 1 defensive player everyone agreed was NFL ready or whatever you want to say.
01-08-2013, 06:46 PM
don't know....i often wonder why coaches do the things they do. maybe someone fed nd false info about an injury or something, hell- who the duck knows, lol.

Another packed day at the gym. Glad I was only doing shoulders/triceps.
Seated BB press fat gripz ELECT 135/165/195/215/235 Got a spotter and they as usual questioned why I even needed one as I got it easy. But my logic is that it only takes a little off balance to make these reps dangerous especially with suspect benches. Felt off balance the 2nd rep.
Up right rows cable ELECT same weight as usual. No real way to go up now. I guess I could start heavier and make smaller jumps.
Standind DB lateral raise 3 sets 45 for 10, 50 for 9, 55 for 7
Close grip bench fat gripz ELECT 225/245/265/285/315 Decided to try 315 for the 1st time. Not too long ago 315 probably would have been a struggle for a single doing regular bench. It is amazing what hard work will do. Not to say M-Sten hasnt helped bump me beyond what I have done in the past.
Rope triceps ext extreme fat gripz 3 sets of 12 reps
DB tricep ext 2 sets of 10 reps 2nd set with 3 negatives 120/120
Standing DB concentration curls 3 sets 60 for 5, 50 for 9, 40 for 12
Pretty dang good workout tonight. Much better than last night when I felt like I was going to die. Only negative is my right shoulder is feeling a bit banged up. Kind of sensitive to the touch. Definitely want to make sure it is well rested before I bench. Especially since I am hoping to try and max out with 405.
01-11-2013, 02:56 AM
Did back earlier today. So ya back pumps are definitely becoming an issue haha. Thinking squats and deadlifts might take a back seat the rest of this cycle. Cant remember a time when they were this bad. Almost took a break and laid down during my workout(which I did during legs).
Speed pulls 365/405/435/465/495 Didnt feel much like speed pulls towards the end. Just dont feel as strong when deadlifting. I would be lucky to get 600 I think.
Close grip lat pulldowns 4 sets of 10
Bent over BB rows underhand 3 sets of 10 with 225
Wide grip lat pulldowns 2 sets of 10
Bent over DB lateral raise 2 sets of 10 with 30s
Rope face pulls 2 sets of 12
Back just locked up on me today. Definitely plan on foam rolling a bit. Plus my right arm is sore. More of a joint pain. It is in my biceps. Might try to self massage it a bit. Tomorrow I am doing chest/biceps and was hoping to max on flat bench IF I can get a decent spotter.
01-11-2013, 04:37 PM
m-sten or heavier training....that is the question!!!
back pumps that is.....

Getting ready to go do chest/biceps. Possibly going to do a video.
