  3. Well a mixed bag at the Gym. Again, with no work out partner so some of the lifts never went to negatives or assisted... Still got a good work out in but I had hoped for a bit more in a few areas.

    My mood is still pretty darn good, labido is doing fine (if not improved), focus at the gym is quite good all while being mellow / plesant. I am way moodier on a low carb diet than week two of the Derm - TBol...

    Going to the local college gym has spoiled me and I now hate working out at the office provided gym. It only has convenience going for it.

    DB Shoulder Press warm up 20x12 // 25x10 - 35x9 - 40x4 (Right shoulder gave, not hurt but said NO and I listened).

    Side Lateral Raises warm up 12x12 // 15x11 - 20x10 - 25x8 (mixed bag)

    Low Pulley Delt Raise warm up 12.5x12 // 17x6 - 12.5x10 - 12.5x12

    Reverse Pec Deck warm up 50x12 // 70x12 - 90x9 - Drop Set from 90-30 x 6/4/4/4/4/4/6

    (rest for Tri's)

    Tricep Push Down warm up 52x12 // 62x12 - 72x9 - 62x11 (felt good)

    Skull Crusher warm up 45x12-12-12-12 (no spotter so light with high reps worked)

    Seated Tricep Press warm up 40x12 // 50x10 - 60x8 - 70x5 (again slight improvements)

    Wrapped up with body weight dips...

    Felt very solid and am EAGER for week 3! Still sleeping well and EATING well.

  4. I realize that most simply do not care about the numbers attached but this log is for me more than for others. It would be awesome if this log helps some, entertains a few, all the while giving me a location to track my personal progress no matter how I size up with others, its mine.

    I have come a LONG way and am proud of where I am and even more proud of where I know I will be... Thanks for the "forum" to do so AM and thanks for the help, answers, laughs, and support forum friends...

  5. Another partnerless day at the gym. Not that I need one on leg day but the motivation sure helps. I do push myself hard but that "you got one more in ya" from your buddy always helps you get two more...

    Feeling very good still. Sleeping quite well, eating right and seemingly constantly, and libido is still abnormally up... I am fine with all of the above!

    Leg day is not my favorite but I seem to make more progress there week to week.

    Leg Extensions warm up 110x12 // 160x11 - 170x11 - 180x9 (up in weights and held rep range)

    Hamstring Curls warm up 80x12 // 110x12 - 140x7 - 140x7.5 (Boy did I try for the rest of that last rep!!!)

    Smith Machine Squats warm up 105x12 // 195x9 - 195x10 - 225x7 (up in weights and reps)

    Stiff Leg Deads 85x12-12-12

    Seated Calf Raises 75# DB on each knee 30-30-30-30

    Hack Squat Machine warm up 100x12 // 140x12 - 160x8 - 160x8

    Calf Press from squat machine 165x20-20-20-20

    Keeping a log definitely can help re seeing progress, and also serve as an accountability tool. There's no need to worry about what others think of your numbers - only be concerned about bettering yourself and competing against yourself.

    You have come a long way, Eric, and you SHOULD be proud of yourself. You're going to go a long way yet - only this time you'll have the support you want and need there.

  9. Yes it is Rosie! I am taking a three day so tomorrow is going to occur at the college gym (that I love)... Looking forward to hitting chest and bicep. Might hit legs real quick while I have a proper leg sled.

    According to others and logs I have read this will be the week that things start to shape up with the Turinabol / Dermacrine combo. I have all my "pre" pics and measurments but have simply not gotten around to posting them up yet.

    Feeling pretty dang good!

    If you miss a session, you do not have to "make" them up - if you do that's fine, but make sure that it's not going to affect further training sessions, etc. I would say just go on from where you SHOULD be on that day. Although consistency is a definite key in achieving any body goal, remember the general 70/30 "rule" - that as long as you complete 70% of what you are supposed to, there is room to allow for the 30% that might be disrupted (I personally would use something like 90/10 or 95/5, but that's just me). That doesn’t mean that you can make excuses for not doing what you know you should, but it gives you some leeway in improvising if need be.

    Sounds like things are going well, otherwise

    I was talking about catching up on the log. I worked out yesterday and had a great one. Off to go take care of Back Day now... Thanks Rosie.

    PS. I feel like CRAP if I miss a session and not much better if I do hit the gym and it feels "off"... Thansk!

  14. Catch up from Monday - This is the start to week 3 and the intro to the Toco8 product in to the cycle as per direction. Still feeling pretty dang good on cycle and seeing fuller harder muscles for sure. Sleep has been easy and I have been getting at least 7-8 a night. Recovery has always been good for me but it is stellar with the T-Bol and Derm.

    Today I used the College gym and loved it (as always).

    Chest and Bicep -

    Decline BB Bench warm up 135x12 // 185x6 - 205x7 - 225x2 (immediatly back to 135 for 6 reps).

    Flat Bench DB warm up 50x12 // 60x9 - 60x9 - 70x5

    Pec Deck warm up 130x17 // 140x12 - 160x10 - 170x9

    Incline DB Fly warm up 25x12 // 30x12 - 40x9 - 40x10

    Cable Curls 4 sets of approx 8-10 reps

    EZ BB Curls 3 sets of approx 6-8 reps

    DB Hammer Curls 30x10 - 20x10

    Decided to take advantage of the proper leg sled to see what I could do.

    I have no idea what the sled weighs so I will only count plates -

    6 plates x 6
    8 plates x 6
    10 plates x 4
    12 plates x groin said NOPE and the sled slid....

    Walked out of the gym a bit gingerly but pleased with the work out.

  15. Today was another very good work out. Up on weight in most cases and up on reps and weight in a few. There is no question I a getting stronger and weight is being added (some of it even good)..

    DB Pull Overs warm up 55x12 // 65x12 - 75x10 - 80x10 (up reps)

    DB Bent Row warm up 50x12 // 60x12 - 70x12 - 80x11 (up reps)

    HS Pull Downs warm up 90x12 // 150x10 - 170x10 - 150x11 (mixed bag)

    WG Cable Rows warm up 63x12 // 98x11 - 98x9 - 87x9 (I hate this machine)

    Dead Lift warm up 125x12 // 185x10 - 245x5 - 195x10 (up reps)

    All in all a pretty good work out. I was hoping for more out of the Dead Lift and if I would get around to getting some straps to help out my pansie grip I could.

    Again, feeling great. I do not see the size increases in the mirror but my wife comments from time to time. I know that I am up approx 4 pounds and see it more in legs and back via a tape measure.

    DO GOOD THINGS!!!!!!

  17. Wednesday - Cardio it is...

    Took a 1/2 hour spin on the Elip and then headed for the hills. Really wanted to move weights but decided to stick to the game plan and rest what needs rested and do it smart.

    Feeling out of sorts today. Not 100% sure why, just am.

    Not much of an update but an update none the less.

    We all have days like this, Eric - sometimes there's no explanation why; maybe it's your body telling you to take it easy for a day? Anyways, hope today lets you relax and come back harder tomorrow!

  19. ^^^Sure do bud, just gotta make sure you are listening to your body.

    As far as cardio you can always make it more interesting to satisfy that throwing weight urge. Something like prowler sleds, tire flip, sprints, hill sprints, plyo work etc. < The high intensity allows you to really push yourself.


  20. Felt much better today. A bit of a slow start but a very good day.

    Sleep was good and woke feeling quite rested.

    Diet is in check and weight is heading north on the same cals so this is a good thing. Strength is heading up as well so I am pleased.

    Headaches still come and go but (again) I think this is eye strain and not HBP.

    Thursday is my favorite work out as I LOVE to work triceps and my shoulder seems to be on the mend and doing much better. Weak but better!

    DB Shoulder Press warm up 20x15 // 25x12 - 35x10 - 40x10 (very improved with a healing wing)

    Side Lateral Raises warm up 12x14 // 15x12 - 20x12 - 25x8 (again improved reps)

    Low Pully Delt Raise warm up 12.5x12 - 12 - 12 - 12 (did the slow burn high rep)

    Reverse Pec Deck warm up 50x12 // 70x12 - 90x12 (skipped the last set as I was SHOT)

    Tricep Cable Push Downs warm up 52x15 // 62x15 - 72x12 - 62x10 (up reps for sure)

    Skull Crushers (moved to two heavy sets) 75x4 - 72x4

    Seated DB Tricep Press Up warm up 40x14 // 50x12 - 60x11 - 70x5 (up reps except for last set) PISSED Did another 10 with 50 to wrap up.

    Then moved to the second phase of the work out... It is the 10 minutes it takes to get my shirt off. Between huge pump in Tri's and Shoulders... Forgetaboutit...

    The mirror is starting to show an improved me and I LIKE IT...

  23. Off to the gym... Leg day.

    Not enough sleep last night but that was a bone head move getting to bed late. Having a hard time with the calories. It has seemed like force feeding myself at times. Today has been rough!!! Getting the food down and keeping it pretty clean but WOW, hard going.

    Now to go make my legs feel like noodles!

  24. Ya getting the food down can get rough, especially on a bulk when using hormones. It will pay off though in the end. It looks like week 3 is once again the sweet spot, keep it up and get your sleep!

    I'll be joining you in the gym, then (going to do my weights in a few minutes)

    Yeah, eating clean for a lot of calories can be tough - so much easier to get the calories in from junk (although not as good results).

    Noodles, LOL

    If you have a hard time with calories, try mixxing 8 raw eggs in a cup with about 3 shots of olive oil. Down it as fast as you can without thinking about it lol. Mix some protein powder in there to give it a bit more texture.

    I do not "want it" that badly.... I about lost a lot of calories simply reading about it! YACK!

  28. 2 words can describe what I went into the work out with and another 2 for what occured...


    1) HIGH EXPECTATIONS

    2) EPIC FAIL


    Groin that I aggrivated with some ego based time on the leg sled last week showed back up during squats. Cut nearly 1/2 the working sets and some lifts out of the mix. Doubled up on others and walked (slowly) away on my noodles but I am far from happy. Progress was made but I fear a step backward as well.

    Injuries suck (I know that!), but at least you made the effort - that counts for a lot! Give yourself a day or so to recover - if you want to train tomorrow, do upper body stuff, or cardio - and go from there.

  30. Alrighty then... Today was a mixed bag for sure. I went into it feeling great as I have made some pretty good strides in my legs and was set to move forward again.

    I did not have any headaches today and LOVED that. I was a bit tired but that was due to staying up and watching a movie too late. A-Team was not as bad as I figured it was going to be.

    Leg Extensions warm up 120x12 // 160x12 - 170x12 - 180x11 (up reps)

    Hamstring Curls warm up 80x14 // 110x13 - 140x8 - 140x7.5 again... (up reps most sets)

    Squats warm up 105x12 // 195x8

    agriated my right groin on that last one and racked it, hit a few padded benches, reset for to salvage the work out...

    Seated Calf Press 80x30x30x30x30 each leg

    Decided to attempt light hack squats (cuz I'm smart like that)... 100x20 // 140x4 DONE!

    Calf Press 140x20x20x20x20

    Back to Leg Extensions to make sure I burn up my quads... And that is what occured!

    It is such a slight pull but I am NOT going to sidline a major muscle group during this cycle due to stupidity. I will be smart / creative / and get the leg work in as I can.

    On a related side note - I was able to modify my stats now that the weight is coming on and appears to be real (not yo-yoing much). Up 6 pounds in the last month.

    Thanks for all the support guys (Rosie is one of the guys just WAY more attractive than the rest of you)
