    Hehe.. yea, definitely Rick, sweating a lot more during workouts Luckily I don't wake up in a pool of sweat at night, but I am quite hot, have to have the fan on all the time. Sides have not been bad at all so far. I wake up randomly every so often but go back to bed fairly easy.

  4. sounds like things are on track here.can't wait for everything to kick in.that feeling while on cycle is great to have.

  5. Workout 2/24/11
    Weight: 239

    WU 10 min elliptical, HR 140

    So.. before I tell you my workout.. I am proud of this workout.. I almost wanted to throw up by the end... I will note however, that my lower back has been EXTREMELY tight and sore since Monday (even with icing, heating, and massage) it's still really feeling weak.. so I listened to my body and pushed it to what I felt I should without making anything worse.

    20 front squats w/ bar
    20 reg squats w/ bar

    Deadlifts: 135 x 10, 135 x 10 (this is all I could do with back pumps and soreness still.. I wanted to make it through the rest with good numbers)

    Wide grip upright rows BB: WU 95 x 10, 115 x 10
    125 x 3r x 10s, 95 x 8 fail, 95 x 6 fail
    (25 pounds more than last week)

    Bent over DB Shrugs: WU 40 x 10, 60 x 10
    80 x 3r x 10s, 55 x 20 burnout
    (umm.. 30 more pounds from last week?)

    HIIT tabata squat thrusts w/ 10lb DB
    20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest, 4 minutes total: 8 sets.
    1st set x 14
    2nd set x 12

    (no more DB, shoulders freaking dead already)
    5th set x 16
    6th set x 12
    7th set x 9
    8th set x 8

    Quads BURNING, lower back aching... this is where I could of puked... I can barely walk up/down stairs without my legs wanting to cramp and literally fail.

    Walked on treadmill at 2.0 spd 1.0 incline (that's all I could manage..) for 20 mins.

  6. Workout 2/26/11
    Weight 239.5

    WU 10 min stepper 140

    Incline Bench BB: WU bar x 20, 135 x 10, 135 x 10
    Work: 165 x 3r x 10s, 135 x 5 fail, 135 x 5 fail

    Machine Leg Press: WU 180 x 10, 180 x 10, 270 x 5, 360 x 5
    Work: 450 (10 plates) x 3r x 10s, 270 x 10

    SLDL: 10 w/bar, 115 x 10, 135 x 10
    Work: 205 x 3r x 10s, 135 x 10

    28 mins free elliptical, 145 HR

    Inclines were up 10 pounds, but a total 10 sets, I only did 155 x 5 sets last week. I was shocked how easy this felt vs. last week. the tbol/tren must be working. Was pooring sweat. The last few sets started struggling on the third. I laughed that I could only do 5 at 135 before failing horribly at the end. muscles were totally dead.

    Machine leg presses had two extra plates from last week, and finished out all ten sets. Does anyone know how much weight the machine alone?

    SLDL were up 20 pounds, never used straps, but grip was really hurting last few ones but I grunted through it.

  7. Increased sweating is a sign that the tren is working for sure.

    The leg press sometimes has stamped somewhere what the sled weight is, but some don't. I usually just count the weight I put on and not the sled weight.

    Great workouts BTW..Keep killing it man!!

    75 x 3 x 10, 45 x 13 fail

    30 x 12, 35 x 8 fail

    Tabata HIIT squat thrusts with 5 DBs:
    20 seconds work, 10 second rest, 8 sets
    16, 12, 10, 10, 10, (dropped weights) 13, 11, 10

    Man those squat thrusts kill me.. ass is tight, quads are burned out, shoulders/arms insanely pumped and tons of sweat.

    20 mins low intensity free elliptical.

    My arms are looking thicker in the mirrors at the gym, triceps seem more pronounced.. my abs are sooo close I can feel it! I did declines to hopefully push out the lower peck so it helps tighten up the little fat flabs I have under my nipples.

  11. workouts are looking great man. Its nice seeing the results in the mirror too, and certainly helps to keep you motivated.

    KTS!!

    20 mins treadmill HR 145. SPD 2.8 incline 3.5s

    So.. I have to say this workout got me in a pretty pissed mood... my numbers weren't better than last week, I felt pretty weak throughout it all.. the only thing I can blame it on is that the night before I could hardly sleep.. I kept tossing and turning, and didn't go to fully sleep til the sun had just come up.. so maybe that would hurt my strength a little, who knows.. but still pissed me off.

    Just gotta shake it off and keep going at it hard.

    Incline DB Flies: 22.5 x 12r x 3s

    28 mins elliptical spd 4.0 HR 145

    Sweat was a pooring today. Everything felt great all around.. My shoulder wasn't feeling too great, so I went a little lighter on shoulder presses, but it still got me pretty good. Doing flies in mirror I loved the way my figure looked, my lats from the rows were pumped, and my arms looked cut. Slowly the veins are coming out more. But tend to only be when working out still. Skin around abs feel a little tighter.
