TinyGuy (Nick's) Prohormone winter bulk journey
Currently running a quad stack ph consisting of Methylclostabol,Hexadrone,Epis tane and Trenavar. It's day 4 and i have some noticeable strength increases, vascularity is showing and i am getting slightly leaner which is surprising considering i am eating 4500-5k+ calories! Weight today this morning was 213Lbs.
Body fat Skin fold Caliper:
Training Split is 3x5 (3 sets of 5) I was originally doing 5x5 but plateau'd, Am actually making way better progress with this!
Day 1: Squat
Day 2: Rows/Pull Ups/Barbell Shrugs
Day 3: Bench Press/Tricep Extension, May rotate Bench with OHP for less shoulder stress
Day 4: Squat/Deadlift
Day 5: Hollow Body Pull Ups/Rows
Day 6: Overhead Press/Close Grip Bench
Day 7: Rest
Not a day in my life i would think only hitting 3 sets HARD would make me grow and my joints feel 100x better already.
Running livercare on cycle 2-4 caps per day.
PCT is Tamoxifen Citrate 40/40/20/20 and D aspartic acid as wellI hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

Thanks for following man!
So today morning weight was 212Lbs, Strength is up a little bit as well
Weighted Chin-Ups: BW + 5lbs x 5, +10lbs x 5,5
Barbell Rows: 155 x 8 x 4
Leg Raises: 4 sets of 12,12,10,10
Feeling really sore today i am thinking about taking tomorrow off instead of doing overhead press. If my shoulder is feeling better i will definitely hit it!
Training with this amount of volume seems to be perfect, my joints feel way better and i am getting stronger faster.I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

Have a great run!

Thanks for the support, skinnybones!
Well today i am on the fence on if i should take my rest day now or tomorrow. My shoulder felt a little overstretched during squat practice, I feel pretty good today but i am going to wait and see. Weight this morning is 212Lbs. So i am holding steady up 4Lbs so far, I am noticing a slightly leaner mid section but not by much. Good thing i am tracking everything!
Today will be Overhead Press 3x5 and Close Grip Bench 3x8 followed by some ab/Lower back work, Maybe some glute ham raises as well.

Just got back from training Overhead Press/Close Grip Bench
Overhead Press: 125 x 3 x 5, 115 x 5, 95 x 5
Close Grip Bench: 155 x 8, 145 x 8,8,7
Heavy DB Shrugs + Holds: 100s x 12,11 110s x 8 + Hold until grip failure
Leg Raises Constant Tension Legs Straight: 15,12,11,8
My overhead press has been stalled for a while but i have just started the 3 sets of 5 approach, hit it pretty well today. Next workout will be 130 and i should get it no problem. Adjusted my grip to middle of my thumbnail.
Bench has been a struggle as well but i tried a tighter arch today with my feet tucked back more and it was definitely better. I hope dropping to 3 x 5 does the trick!
No squat practice today, letting my shoulder heal up 100% for Squatting on Monday. Tomorrow is my day off, gonna stuff my face and try to get 6000 Calories

Your shoulder bothers you for squats? I have a similar problem at times. If you have acess to a ssb, you should use it

Weight today is 210lbs, how the hell am i dropping weight on 4500+ calories a day??! Anyways i am eating even more now.
255 x 3 sets of 5 reps, Getting close to breaking my all time 5 RM which i set at 250lbs!
RDL: 275 x 5, 4 no straps, 3 no straps
Killed it today i am feeling pretty good, reps were a little slower today and last set i accidentally set the bar too high so it was a high bar squat LOL got them all on video, will upload later today! Warmed up a lot better today, i actually am hitting depth a ton easier and i am almost squatting TOO low haha

Nice. Remember to keep a big chest my man on squats.
01-07-2014, 04:16 PM
Good video !
Looking good as well. Keep pumping!!

No problem. My squat is horrible. My chest used to sink in, now since I'm aware I don't tend to do it much. I'm liking your progress man.
Keep after it!
01-07-2014, 10:05 PM
I'm in, just curious but what company are you using for your quad stack?

I would never say that. That has been said to me, and it's discouraging and wrong to say something like that.
Everyone is different. While a certain exercise might be easy for me, someone else might struggle badly with it, and vice versa.
Everyone starts somewhere, i remember when I looked at 135 for the bench and thought id never reach that. Now that's just part of a warmup before working sets.
My numbers are pretty poor, but I get up everyday and want to improve. It's addicting and a lot of fun.
Keep up the good work my man!

Ok so i decided to go for broke today and i hit 225 x 3 paused on bench with elbow wraps. Pretty surprised by this but my joints/tendons need a BREAK, i talked with a highly intelligent buddy of mine who suggested i train higher volume on cycle and in pct go back to 5x5 to maintain higher intensity and take advantage of higher training volume capacity on cycle, i think it's a great idea plus my body needs a break to a small degree. Tomorrow for squats the plan is 175x10 sets of 10 reps GVT style! using 60% of my 1rm like prescribed. I have put about 30lbs on my 5rm so this will be a good change of pace, in pct i am aiming for some big PR's without a doubt. Once i hit 10 sets of 10 with the prescribed weight i will add 5lbs 2.5 per side. Doing the same for pressing/back movements. Joints are pretty beat up, gotta reset.
Weight today was 210lbs
Bench: 185 x 3, 155 x 9, 165 x 5, 225 x 3, 245 x 1 (idk about this think my spotter helped said he didn't but meh)
Lying Tri Ext: 35 x 10,10 45 x 10,10 wiped out no strength at all.
Even though 225 was my goal i did it with some beefy wraps and i felt like they helped too much, i have no ego with this i want it 100% legit to myself!

You'll get there ... Your pretty close all ready & the rides not over yet.

They're very cool and useful. You get used to heavier weight and say your max is 235, you can rep 5+ of 235 with the slingshot
01-09-2014, 09:57 PM
Well today i went to GVT but i really messed up my starting weight, I went with the higher of the % of 1rm being 60, i should of used 50 this **** is INSANE!!! Was really really hard, timed every single rest period i almost vomited about 4x, 3 of which were mid-set from holding my air.
German Volume Training for squats is 50-60% of 1RM for 10 sets of 10 reps with 90 seconds rest between each set. It is used to allow the joints to recover and allow the olympic weight lifting athletes to put on lean mass while shedding bodyfat, most went up a full weight class in 12 weeks. This is some hardcore training no joke!
175 x 10 x 4 Sets
155 x 10 x 3 Sets
135 x 10 x 3 Sets
Next squat workout i am going with 155, the 175 KICKED MY ASS. Form improved greatly by 7th set. The program claims your form will improve drastically from the volume. I am in love with this, it was so hard guys i hope you try this!! One of the most challenging squat variations i have tried. I got a video of me at 155, you can hear me struggling to breathe LOL
Weight was 216lbs today!! woooohooo!
01-09-2014, 10:03 PM
01-09-2014, 10:05 PM
Ha and up 8 pounds !!
01-09-2014, 10:07 PM
Your killin it man! Can't wait for the rest of the log!

Here's the one video i managed to shoot lmao, god dammit i only got 8. It's so hard to keep track of reps when all these little technical form intricacies are there..
01-09-2014, 10:40 PM
Yea .. Good video very cool.
Might be a challenge using the toilet tomorrow
01-09-2014, 10:42 PM
01-09-2014, 10:43 PM
Great video! The form looked real good!
01-10-2014, 01:39 PM
I am still alive!! LOL my legs are already pretty damn sore, tomorrow is going to suck the sack haha
Did Back today 10x10, started conservatively since yesterday i experienced the wrath of being greedy!
Barbell row Shoulder Width Grip: 105 x 10 x 10, hit all the sets with the rest. Next workout will be 115 x 10 x 10
Chin ups: BW @ 212lbs x 10,10,5,3
Leg raises: 5 sets of 10 with 30 seconds rest
I noticed that Charles poliquin suggested 10x10 chins, wow i wish i was that strong at them the arm/back size that could be obtained from that would be insane, maybe in the future.
Felt a little dizzy again after this LOL
01-11-2014, 08:53 AM
Ok so BOOM today i am at 214Lbs Morning weight! Training my overhead press 10x10 later and then some tricep variation, was thinking floor press or bench dips? Floor press seems like it'd be a better choice since i want to improve my bench without thrashing my shoulder!
