    Today i'll be doing Arms. My favorite workout, slathered with Eviscerate! I'll get a measurement after, but I'm pretty sure I've lost a good inch on my arms. Luckily, they come back quickly.
    Hope the session went well, Matt!

    You will get that inch and more in no time bro!

  4. Shoulder's having a rough recovery. Working through it for sure. My mass loss was most apparent in today's pics.

    rough workout - everything was so similar today (rotator cuff/AC recovery supersets), so accuracy of the log is unreliable....a blend of laterals, bent over laterals, high rope pulls, upright rows (LIGHT LIGHT weight), head tracers, shrugs (went heavier here with a final drop set) and dumbbell presses. Weights up slightly from last week and the pace was brutal.

    Still hilarious to see my shoulder (Eviscerated) DRENCHED in sweat with little to no other area even comparable.

    Next week I think I am transitioning back to my mass building workouts, but I think in the middle i will squeeze in some cardio level,15 rep, supersets.

    Arms looking big Matt!

  7. Keep at it Matt, recoveries can be long but muscle memory is a great thing as im sure you know!
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

  8. Ran out of Protocol, but was able to grab one of the last in stock from DPS. My own workout tonight, focusing on upper chest re-development.

    Paddle Pec Dec: 100*15, 120*10, 150*10, 180*10 (slow squeeze and return)
    Incline BB bench: 135*12, 225*10, 275*10, 315*5 (slow negative) JUMP TO
    Machine incline: 215*10, 245*10, 245 plus two added 10 pound plates * 10 (static hold)
    Hammer bench 1 plate *10, 2 plates *10, 3 plates *6, then got a bad delt pinch.
    Pec Dec (slow squeeze) 140*10, 170*10, 190*10



    Weight holding steady at around 214. Really self-conscious about the mass loss, though my strength on inclines is back to about 75% of working level.

  10. Not bad Matt. Especially under the circumstances. 1-2 weeks tops and you will be back at it 100%

  11. 09/15/10

    Not bad...up at 215 and a bit leaner. Today was a pretty miserable workout, and I didn't do too hot. Supposed to be lat centered, but my forearms and rear delts fatigued way too early. 15 rep sets are just not for me, I think.

    Pullups (weight assist is the indication) 48 lb assist * 15, *13, *10, *9
    SUPERSETTED WITH pushups 15*4
    Dumbbell row at 50 lbs...*15*4. I did horrible on these, getting nothing but rear delt activation.
    Two-handed cable rows (to chest) 120*15, 105*15*3
    SUPERSETTING WITH underhand grip pulldowns 120*10*4 (forearms were burning)
    Cable wide grip pulldowns - 80*15*4
    Shrugs (hammer) 1 plate * 10*2, 2 plates * 10*4, 3 plates * 10 * 2

    Total workout time 38 minutes...wicked.

    Back looks thicker than last week, especially in the trap area. Still hairy.

  12. 09/17/10

    Arms...a blinding array of high-rep mid-weight dumbbell and barbell movements. Probably 24 sets in all (12 each bi and tri). Last-minute damage was done by some forced rep barbell spider curls.

    Arms at a solid 18.75 and some nice Eviscerate-induced cuts.

  14. Dam Matt thick back and a small waist. Looking good dude.

  15. damn man, I'm subd!

  16. I wondered why my lower back has been feeling better...recovering quickly even after my GRUELING back workout.

    Safety and Efficacy of Dietary Agmatine Sulfate in Lumbar Disc-associated Radiculopathy. An Open-label, Dose-escalating Study Followed by a Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Trial.

    Abstract

    Objective. Agmatine, decarboxylated arginine, was shown in preclinical studies to exert efficacious neuroprotection by interacting with multiple molecular targets. This study was designed to ascertain safety and efficacy of dietary agmatine sulfate in herniated lumbar disc-associated radiculopathy. Study Design. First, an open-label dose escalation study was performed to assess the safety and side-effects of agmatine sulfate. In the follow-up study, participants diagnosed with herniated lumbar disc-associated radiculopathy were randomly assigned to receive either placebo or agmatine sulfate in a double-blind fashion. Methods. Participants in the first study were recruited consecutively into four cohorts who took the following escalating regimens: 1.335 g/day agmatine sulfate for 10 days, 2.670 g/day for 10 days, 3.560 g/day for 10 days, and 3.560 g/day for 21 days. Participants in the follow-up study were assigned to receive either placebo or agmatine sulfate, 2.670 g/day for 14 days. Primary outcome measures were pain using the visual analog scale, the McGill pain questionnaire and the Oswestry disability index, sensorimotor deficits, and health-related quality of life using the 36-item short form (SF-36) questionnaire. Secondary outcomes included other treatment options, and safety and tolerability assessment. Results. Safety parameters were within normal values in all participants of the first study. Three participants in the highest dose cohort had mild-to-moderate diarrhea and mild nausea during treatment, which disappeared upon treatment cessation. No other events were observed. In the follow-up study, 51 participants were randomly enrolled in the agmatine group and 48 in the placebo. Continuous improvement of symptoms occurred in both groups, but was more pronounced in the agmatine (analyzed n = 31) as compared with the placebo group (n = 30). Expressed as percent of baseline values, significantly enhanced improvement in average pain measures and in quality of life scores occurred after treatment in the agmatine group (26.7% and 70.8%, respectively) as compared with placebo (6.0% [P </= 0.05] and 20.0% [P </= 0.05], respectively). No treatment-related adverse events were noted. Conclusions. Dietary agmatine sulfate is safe and efficacious treatment for alleviating pain and improving quality of life in lumbar disc-associated radiculopathy. Study Registration. ClinicalTrials.gov Protocol Registration System Identifier: NCT00405041.

    Natalie is splitting for the O tomorrow, so she's been doing two bodyparts per day. On Monday's I train with a powerlifter friend of mine looking to cut up...so yesterday we did a very minor arm workout (neither of us felt good).

    So today I was surprised to see.....Back and Biceps, YAY!

    I got basically nothing from the back portion, oddly....we did 4 sets of machine rows supersetted with 4 sets of dumbbell rows, some undergrip cable rows, and some cable front pullovers.

    Wasn't sure how the unsupported dumbbell biceps would go, as my shoulder screamed in protest last Friday, but I held up very nicely. Anyway, since I didn't get much from the back portion I just hit a pic of my bicep. Bad angle, the vascularity is not apparent.



    I have to figure out what to do with tomorrow, but Thursday I'll be doing a leg workout before my flight out.

  18. After discussing briefly with Patrick about a proposed product design based on the above study, he was discussing the opiod receptor senstivity enhancement mechanism of Agmatine Sulfate.

    This is an excellent explanation of why the Protocol was assisting with my lower back soreness.

  19. very interesting-seems weve only beugun to really see the whole value of agmatine. You guys thnkn of doin a product together?

  20. I agree 100% Protocol keeps amazing us.

  21. I wonder if there is any effect on cartillage

  22. Perhaps I will try the Protocol when I decide on my final stack for my log..

  23. I wonder if protocol or an Agmatine product would help my hip? Ever since i broke my foot in bootcamp it acts up after squats or even something simple like playing football.

    I'm going to discuss it with him in Vegas. I'm loving the idea of a pain-reduction stack...whatever I come up with and Joint Force.

    I think this wicked 1-2 punch on biceps this week put me a hair's breath under 19". My best size was around 19.75 not too long ago, so kudos to my muscle memory.

    My concussion had cleared enough for me to comfortably add heavy legs back in. Should jump my weight back up to the 226 I was at a few weeks ago.

    Winner for sure i highly anticipate this, i've been using Joint Force now for a probably a week and it has taken down the inflammation. Pain-reduction stack would be awesome.

  29. Alcohol intake over the weekend softened my gut, but my bi-tri split is still somewhat there.

    09/27/10 Shoulders

    Stick-handled lateral machine (standing) 60*10, 75*10, 90*10, 105*6
    Bent over dumbbell laterals - 30*15, 35*15, 40*12, 50*10, 60*6
    Military arced machine - 200*12, 250*10, 259*10, 279*10*2
    Machine military flat motion (unknown weight conversion from plate number) 14*12, 16*12, 18*10*3

    Dead ass flat out pump up and burn. Got my new Protocol stock in right before leaving for Vegas and today was day1. Strong feel, my shoulder injury feeling great. I'll have to pick up shrugs tomorrow.

    Edit - no I'm not lactating...pure nipple sweat baby!
