Today's weight: 271 lbs
Pretty funny, I'm 1200 calories below maintenance and still gaining weight. I'll do some measurements on Sunday to see how things are going. Today's was shoulders and back. Went rather well, got anxious with dumbbell press, tried 120's, only got 4 reps. It took damn near everything I had to get the damn things up to my shoulders. By that time, I was already spent. I'll try it again next week but I'll have someone assist the weight up. Didn't do deadlifts this week, alternating those with barbell rows from week to week. So, I got 315 on barbell rows for 7 reps. Hadn't done those in a while so I was pleased. Rest of the workout I picked up the pace more concerned with fatiguing the muscle than strength. Got the chance for a treadmill today so I took it. Heartrate of 126-135 for an hour. Pretty damn boring compared to the eliptical but whatever works.

Beezle keep on working on that fat will come off, I think LOL
Seriously stick with the treadmill and keep your heart rate down as Lean One suggested. We want you to keep the muscle and lose the fat so it's important you stay away from stairmasters, ellipticals ect....things that shoot your heart rate through the roof.
Chasec HIIT has it's place and works well but Beezle can only make the gym once a day so HIIT after a workout would be a no no. On off days from training it would be great though.

speaking of off day cardio, i decided to bump it up a notch. on off days, before breakfast, i'll be taking about a 40-45 minute walk. now, that i've got a pretty good idea what pace i need from the treadmill experiment, i can use that as a gauge for how fast the walk should be. doesn't sound like much but i'm sure it'll add up, that's cardio 6 days a week now.

You better watch out. At this rate you're nipping at my heels to get the title of "cardio king"
Oh, and be carefull all that cardio can eat up your muscle.

cardio king? nah, that definately doesn't fit me. not too worried about eating up muscle with the test/tren combo. but if i do notice any decreases in strength, i'll adjust as necessary.Originally Posted by Lean One

Alrighty, end of week 1 measurments.
Weight: 271 lbs (up 3lbs)
Arms : 19 7/8" (up 1/8")
Neck : 19 1/4" (up 1/4")
Chest : 50.5" (up 1/2")
Waist : 41 1/2" (down 1/2")
Thighs : 25" (same) i'm measuring 6" above the knee, not sure if this is the right place or not.
Calves : 16 5/8" (up 1/8")
Not bad for week 1. In all honesty I believe the arm measurments went up from the tricep injection but then again my chest measurment went up as well so I dunno. Thighs? Hell, what can I say? May be about time to bust out the 20 rep squats again, oh joy.

no, they're far from fun. usually, by rep 15 i can hear water rushing in my ears, pausing at the top feels like i'm still squatting, sometimes losing count from the pain distraction. they produce results though, just like anything else that sucks ass.Originally Posted by Chemist63

Weight : 270 lbs
Bench is up 2 reps, got 325 for 9, moving up to 335 next week. Strength is making small improvements compared to last cycle but due to calorie deprivation, I'll take what I can get. Still feel good, no problems.
Tri's are up 5lbs on the one-handed dumbbell behind the head thingy, got 45's for 8.
Decided that since I can do cardio 3X a week in the morning and 3X post-workout, that I would just make them all morning cardio. So, in other words, Monday-Saturday, pre-breakfast, 45-60 minutes of 65% heartrate cardio. That should do it.

Stupid question I think but you said that your arm measurements went up maybe from the tricep injection. If you are trying to target one body part more, does it help to inject into that part?Not bad for week 1. In all honesty I believe the arm measurments went up from the tricep injection but then again my chest measurment went up as well so I dunno. Thighs? Hell, what can I say? May be about time to bust out the 20 rep squats again, oh joy.

no, there's no localized benefit from spot injecting. i just inject there because i've got meaty arms and it's the easiest spot for me. spot injecting is some crazy ass myth that holds no weight whatsoever. yeah, the measurements go up temporarily but as soon as the oil dissipates (sp?), you're back to normal.Originally Posted by Chemist63

i'm starting to feel bloated, pretty bad actually. diet has changed so it shouldn't be that, even though my appetite has went to ****. i have a headache all the time too. thought it might have been something else at first, but the **** won't go away. checked blood pressure, 140/76, not that high, started at 130/70.
