Happy B Day bro! I remember when my dad used to take my brother and I to the Y. We used to pretend that the workout machines were spaceships or something like that...who knows...I do know that I really appreciate that he did that...I feel like it planted the weightlifting bug under my skin ya know. Enjoy your day bro!

Day 1, wk 1 (PCT Day 8) 65%

Got about 1000 cals left on the day and need to get more Protein in. Little man's Little League tourney starts Tomorrow, I may not be able to hit it again till Wednesday AM. We shall see.

Quiet day with a tight diet:1730 cals (145 carbs, 175 protein [plus 36 g BCAA], 52 fats.)
06-26-2012, 12:17 PM
Love those quiet days...I need more of those in my life. Keep up the good work bro.

FED FROM 12:30-7:30 1890 CALS (124 carbs, 175 protein [plus 36 g bcaa], 79 fats) est burn of 3700.
Could just be paranoia, but I am not really seeing the boys gettin' back to their usual "heaviness". On a positive note, mood is good, libido is good, no depression or anxiety.
06-27-2012, 09:14 PM
Today was a mixed bag of sorts. Weighed in @266, so I only put on 8 pounds over my birthday/father's day. Beats the 16 I gained last year. Also, despite the fact that this was not a heavy 5x5 day, I did crank it up on the assist work and found good evidence that I have not been losing any strength. Not sure what it is about this combo, maybe it is the Nolva or just the mix of all of these compounds, but I am almost feeling like I am on cycle.
Day 2, wk 1 65%
Bench [email protected] (Focused on exploding out of the bottom, felt good)
Weighted Dip 3x8/8/8 (24 deep pec stretching reps in 3 sets is a PR)
BO BB Row 230 x8/7/8
Assisted Pull Up 213x8, 233x6/5+Partial
Close Grip Bench 180x12/10, 190x6+assisted rep.
Wrapped things up with a bit of cardio, 22 minutes, 183 cals.
Fed from 10 - 8:30 (Post W/O was 2 scoops of protein, 1 scoop glycomyx, then nothing till 2 - whole rotisserie chicken Yeah, I konw, >8 hours but I last eight at 4:30 and got home and was only at 2600 cals, had 2 scoops MGN Cake Batter +4oz fresh Strawberries. Figured if I tried to go through till 12 tomorrow from 4 on less than my target cals, I would run risk of a midnight cheat, thought this was better)
2934 cals (145 carbs 294 protein [plus 42g bcaa], 125 fats) with an estimated burn of 4100. Wished every day my macro's looked like that.

06-28-2012, 11:40 AM
Nice job on those macros bro...way to opt for the cake batter over the mid-night snack. I recall going hours with out eating and then coming home and wanting to storm the refrigerator...it takes a lot not to!

Big old storm blew through yesterday, knocking out power and communications, blew my iron time yesterday. Nothing to do but get it done today.
6/30/12 Day4, wk 1 65%

90 deg DB Preacher 25x10
Planks 5x40 squeeze, 20 rest (used stop watch this time, more demanding.)
07-01-2012, 05:47 PM
7/1/12 Day1, wk 2 (75%)
Squat 5x5 at 300 (Butt to elevated milk crate)
Pwr Clns 5x5@ 145
Split squats 3x6/6 w/35's
Had to get moving, will hit leg raises later this week.
Weighed in at 261 this morning with some persisting water weight, so I am pretty sure we have repaired the damage from Father's Day/my birthday week. Seem to be maintaining strength gains and vascularity seems to again be on the rise, libido is good, but honestly has never been an issue for me. We are dropping the Nolva to 40mg eod starting with today's dose. As the recourse only runs for 20 days, not sure what I will do when it is gone. Have some options to replace it or may just be done with a natural test booster at that time.

Yesterday sucked, got caught in a 6 hr crisis intervention that involved a 16 year old kid nobody wanted, talk about shooting up cortisone levels!
Anyways, took an hour drive to a Y 30 minutes from my home to get it in tonight, but we got it in.
Day 2, wk 2 (75%)
5:45-6:50 (Did the best I could in unfamiliar territory. Never ceases to amaze me the differences from one set of cables to the next)
Bench 5x5 @220 (These were more challenging than I anticipated but not really a struggle, pretty typical for my 75% bench week)
Dip 10/8/7 (25 reps over 3 sets is a new PR)
BO BB Row 235x10/8/8
Had no assisted PU Machine, so I combined my best effort at Chin ups with Wide Grip PD's
2 eye level Chin ups then 4reps at 180 PD, 2 more eye level chins, 6 reps at 150 PD.
Close grip bench 185 x8/4(got grip too narrow here)/5
Hanging Leg Raise 25/25/20
Fed from roughly 12-8, 3019 cals (121 carbs, 244 protein [plus 36g bcaa], 168 fats. Fats are high because I broke fast with hotwings and salad with ranch, finished the day with eggs. Est burn of 4050.
07-04-2012, 12:29 PM
Gonna have breakfast here in a bit. Hit a 6.86 mile bike ride, 42minute, est burn of 463. Gonna take my little guy swimming today too, that should burn a bit more. No iron today.
07-04-2012, 09:33 PM
Didn't track cals today. Had the bike ride, 2.5 hours with the kids at the pool swimming and then a Church 4th party w/ a pretty hot & intense kickball game during which I ate dirt trying to snag balls on the run. Very active day.
07-05-2012, 07:45 PM
Today was quiet, maybe gonna hit a bike ride here in a bit, but it is still darn hot. Fed from 12-7, 2083 cals, (152 carbs, 192 protein [plus 24g bcaa], 84 fats). Things seem to be going well, tomorrow getting back to the iron.
Post Edit: Did get the bike ride in, 37 min, 4.89 miles, est burn of 324 cals.
