MY 6 wk 1-ALPHA LOG

Page 2 of 14 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Been taking it easy on lower back movements cuz it would seem I pinched a nerve or slipped a disk last Friday day 1. Not sure how it happened but I am being cautious. Squats and deads are suffering because of this but I'll get over it. Hoping to squat and dead 400+ at least 3 reps by the end of this cycle.

  2. What do you squat now, might have to watch it if your back is hurt don't push it.

  3. Don't know 1 rep maxes. I pretty much never have a lifting partner so I never push it to find out. The closest Ill get is a 3 rep max alone. It makes me feel safe enough that if I can't finish 3 at least Ill get 2 safely. Not too worried about numbers anyways, all I care about is size and definition.

    Oh definitely avoud lower reps if you are concetrated on bodybuilding you can work power with 5 reps just fine. 187 is that up at all from the beginnng..

    Yup. The only time I ever do low reps is when I transition to powerlifting routines where that is the main goal. Besides muscle building is prime in 8-10 rep range IMO. As far as weight, I cannot attribute any gain thus far to supps. For the last month going into this cycle I didn't eat for maintenance, didn't lift at all, lost a grip of muscle and gained some fat. So for now any weight gain can only be attributed to an increase in food intake and water retention from creatine. I mean I was eating like twice a day the month coming into this, small meals too. Now I'm back to my usual 5+ meals a day plus protein shakes. Depending on my activity level and food intake I can easy float between 175-195 lbs during the year. Like to hit 2 hundo + on this cycle though...

    You are up already by a few lbs I believe, I bet you do around 202 depending on diet.

    That would be nice. Im up 2.6 lbs from the start wich is quite awesome considering im only 8 days in. Calories have been around 3700. I may up to 3900-4100+ if progress stalls. I would however like to make these pounds as solid as possible a lean 202 would be a major victory in my book

    You only got six to go bro. That's easy peasy even without the use of hormones. The biggest I've ever been was close to 210. I could barely do like one minute of cardio at a time lol. But it was impressive nonetheless. A lean 200 would be better than when I was bulked at 210.

  16. I got a really awesome arms workout planned for after school this afternoon. I'll weigh in then and based on how much I ate the last three days I'm probably 190 now. Upside to eating so much is that my muscles are finally feeling satiated and I can finally walk normal now from my leg workout last Sunday. Well kinda normal. At least I can walk...

    For sure. It's not anywhere near my last cycle 2 yrs ago or so where I gained massive strength and bulk right away, like 15 lbs in 2 weeks and strength through the roof, but its way more steady and I like this stuff better. I mean there is no way I could've done 265x8 on my fourth set last week but sure enough I did yesterday. Def feeling Alpha in the gym

  26. I still don't get why people stack so much weight on stiff leg deads. I saw this guy jut a min ago repping with 315 and it looked like he was gonna snap his back. All jerky n whatnot. Anyway like Kai Green says about stiff DL "if you have the mind-muscle connection you don't need a lot of weight". That dude uses 135 lbs for stiff leg deads and he's like 5'8" 280 lbs...

    and then they bend their knees wtf!!! they don't call them stiff legged for the fug of it...I will go up in weight but won't break form. I never go past 225 and usually only go to around 185.

  28. Weighed in at 190 post sh*t, first thing in the morning before working out. Definitely gaining steadily. Today was back...

    DAY 11 Back n Abz
    Hanging leg raise
    15x3
    Wide pullups
    10x3
    Reverse pullups
    8x3
    DL
    10@135, 10@185, 10@225x2
    Wide lat pd
    10@180x3
    BB reverse grip row
    10@135x3
    Superset-> Close grip lat pd + Ext
    10@160 + 15@bodyweight x3

    Grip has improved dramatically. I used straps for this workout last time on everything after pullups. This time I forgot my straps and just rolled with it. Did just fine. Barbell almost slipped on my last DL set but ended up being fine. Also ima make sure to eat something before an AM workout next time cuz I was feeling a little gassed without any food in my belly

    I always perform much better fasted but that is something I got used to with IF protocol. I think some people do not experience a heightened performance level during fasting but many do, has to do with body type I think.
