Day 43- beginning of week 7
Today's weight: 217lbs
As most of you know I'm on the brink of figuring out this weight issue. I want to be heavier and trying so hard to put on size.
Visually my body has made substantial changes, I'm actually eager and excited to post progress pics! The response I got last time I posted progress gave me much confidence and I have seen my body get rounder and bigger since then. My strength is really really good right now. Call me full of myself but I have been told by a friend I'm one of the biggest guys in the gym haha. Ill take it though.
Yesterday was my first day back in the gym. Before that I took a 2 day break. I guess it was needed since I literally go like 6 days a week for years now. No spotter tho, no buddy with me. Also walking in the doors of the gym I had no plan!!! I though about what sort of training I have been lacking in and decided I have been putting so much effort into my legs I haven't neglected my core but I definately don't hit it hard enough lately. So I began with core or ab workout and by the end of it my abs were destroyed. I usually have no problem with hanging leg lifts but I hit that last and man.... I could barely do em.
After a 30-45 min ab session I decided to hit chest and triceps a little. Again, no spotter. I flat benched all different variations. Wide grip, close grip, even under grip... Bench pressing with palms facing up towards your face rather than your feet. This allowed me to get a different kind of squeeze or pump that I am not used to. It felt good. I am trying to really squeeze my chest and not so much just go all out on heavyweight. Sometimes lighter is better if you know how to control your muscles. I feel my chest is massive but the inner chest is lacking. So I really worked on that
Here are some strength numbers. Again no spotter. Not every set included just trying to give an idea.
Pec deck whole stack (200lbs)
First set 20 reps
135lbsx 5 reps
Seated dips (whole stack idk like 240 or 260lbs)
10 reps first set decreasing reps every set
Yesterday I mixed it up I did some light sets so I could really work on the squeeze and stretch of the muscle and on other sets I took more a strength program idea with some lower reps but heavier weight. I'm just disappointed I couldn't push the limits and maybe even get some forced reps but I compensated by using drop sets. Also kept my rest time shorter than normal. About 1 min to 75 seconds.
Today is yet again another leg day! I'm excited as usual and since its my day off the gym should be pretty empty. I'm going to try doing lots of sets today. I usually do like 4 sets. Today I'm going to try 7 sets of squats. And more sets on everything. Now that I have been anabolic minding it all morning it's time I go eat again so I gotta cut you guys loose. I will record and update my leg workout. Post will be up tonight.
Thanks for checking in!
Squat 275 for 9. Beats last week by 2 more reps. No spotter today.
And a little post workout meal action. 45 mins after the workout this chicken meal. I already used whey protein isolate and karbolic.
That's looks good! How ya cool it?
Nice food, lifts, rest and update! Killer

Baked sweet potato using cocoanut oil not olive oil.
I premake all my meals. Yesterday I pre cooked 6 of these and 4 lean ground beef and long grain brown rice. These don't include my breakfast or family dinner. Just what I take to work.
Today I did a test. How much calories could I eat in just solid clean eating foods. No protein gainers just a lot of pasta, chicken, ground beef, rice, eggs, ezekiel bread, Greek yogurt, protein granola, sandwich from home, sweet potatoes, chicken, broccoli... And a few I'm sure I'm missing. This is what I reached today.
Damn that's a lot of food. I complain about 3K lol
Took a day off yesterday for a family event. Will be back on my game tonight after work. Arms and abs.
Holding steady at 220 lbs. (up 5 lbs) this is in just boxers. I have a goal of 230lbs at end of PCT! It's time to make staggering gains! I'm starting to blow up I'm able to see separation in my quads and hams now! Just had to brag. Update coming tonight or tomorrow. At work today but off tomorrow.
Week 7 of deca it's just getting good week 14 is the best. To hit 230 u'll have to get stupid dum with cals. I'm in the 5000 and up range. It's constant eatting an ****ting with lifting in between. I've only been off deca a week or so and I already miss its sweet sweet embrace.
And I am loving deca. I haven't had a bad deca cycle yet. Some people blow up in a bad way on this stuff but I'm staying pretty tight. With deca, people gain weight and u can see it in their face. You know what I mean?
Yeah I love the ****. I didn't really go up in fat till the last couple of weeks. Next time I'm going to blast with Npp at a high dose with a strong oral. I know it will destroy the bedroom life but I think it will be worth it.
Separation in the hams, you say? That's pretty ****ing out of control if you ask me. Nice work.
Alright alright! Gains are comin this is going to be a very busy week for me but will stick to my nutrition and training throughout. So I may not update but once or twice this week. Here is a snapshot of the leg progress I have had so far.
Weight is now 222lbs (+7lbs)
Strength gains are substantial as well as size. I have really blown up HUGE in my back chest and shoulders... Evern arms. But like I said legs is my weak point but I think I've done very well as they have taken a nicer shape. What do u guys think?
I want to see a log!
