Trav's 1-Alpha and 550-XD run.
Thought for the benefit of my self, I would start a pretty basic log of my short 1-Alpha and 550-XD run. I haven't really done any ph's before so this is my first run. For this log I will be taking one 1-Alpha am and pm for 30 days and on week 3 I will start the 550-XD so they over lap for 2 weeks and then the final 2 weeks with 550-XD one am and pm. Standard supps while on cycle will be whey protein and fish oil, as well as BCAA's and half dose of cycle support. For pct I will be running PCT revolution with DAA, protein and creatine.
My basic stats, currently weighing in at 87kg at 6ft, what I am hoping out of this short cycle is to gain some lean mass and lose some body fat along the way.
This is my third day of the 1-Alpha and at this early stage I have not and don't expect to notice any changes.
Tonight I trained chest
BB Bench Press x 5
BB Incline Bench x 3
Single DB Press x 3
Push ups to failure x 2
Not the best work out as I am away on site for work and don't have much equipment to work with, but it did feel pretty good to get out and hit the weights.
I will try and update every couple of days and feel free to give any advice or comments for my training and log.

Thanks for the interest. I'm not expecting to much from this as it is a short and mild cycle. But I will keep my diet in check and train hard and get the most out of this run.

No weights last night, but did manage to get in some cardio with a game of squash... Not ny usual sport of choice, but better than nothing. Feeling good and will be hitting back tonight. Can't wait.

Squash is a game were you hit a little rubber ball that barely bounces against a wall and side walls....kinda like tennis but with a smaller request and ball. Instead of a net you have walls to hit onto.

Another night and another workout, and being away on site means not much equipment to use. Tonight was a back workout. Pretty simple and need some more volume, but it was getting dark and have no lights where I train and no where for chin ups.
DB Row x 5 x 7
Incline Bench BB Row 5 x 10
Incline Bench DB Row 3 x 5
DB Pullover x 3 x 10
Won't be home until Tuesday night so have to continue with what I have up here.
Not feeling anything yet from the 1-Alpha, but am hoping to notice something next week.

It's good to have the finaflex crew on board for this log. Alright, tonight was shoulders and I was feeling pretty good for this tonight.
DB Shoulder Press 5 x 8
Upright Row 5 x 8
Bent over reverse DB Fly 4 x 10
Lat raises 3 x 10
BB Standing Shoulder Press 2 x Failure
This work out felt good, could feel a pump through my shoulders, and plenty of veins showing through front of my shoulders. I think the 1-Alpha may be just starting to work it's way into my system.
Can't wait to get home and have a proper work out at a decent gym.
No weights tomorrow and will be making the 1 1/2 hour round trip to have a game of Squash

really just grew on me, and i was a natural believe it or not
(some don't think i would be, with my build)
my brother tho, now that guy could have done something big, has uncanny natural raquet-sport ability..
he just lost interest in college for some reason, went another direction

Just got back from the gym this morning and didn't have a very good work out at all. I was excited to get home and go to the gym, and planned on doing legs. Got into my fourth set of leg press when I felt my lower back twinge. So I took it very easy after that.
Leg press 1 x 8, 2 x 6, 1 x 4
Leg extension 5 x 10
Seated leg curl 5 x 10
Weighted step ups 2 x 9
Calf raises 6 x 10
Wondering if anyone has any exercises to strengthen my lower back. I am thinking of hypers and planks. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Hoping to get out in the surf for a body board later this morning and hang out with ky wife in the arvo...maybe a game of squash... Not much of a tennis player myself.
Might try and get a pic or two up tomorrow as a not quite before and after thing.

yeah you're on the right track, there are a few choices
for my money: hip bridge, side plank, and (yes) lunges, aside from DLs of course

Poor form and hip mobility are probably the two biggest causes of messed up lower back from leg pressing though. People allow their butts to come off the seat and curl forward which ends up rounding the lower back. Add in the seat padding is often not very good and you've got the things to tweak and snap some **** up.

Up to day 11, and haven't really noticed anything yet with the 1-Alpha.
This morning was chest and tri's.
BB Bench 1 x 8, 1 x 6, 2 x 4, 1 x 10.
Incline DB Press 4 x 8
Dips 3 x 8
Cable x overs 3 x 12
Incline cable x over 2 x 8
Skull cruisers 3 x 12
Tri push downs 2 x 6
It wasn't to bad a workout considering I have some lower back pain.
Got out for a body board as well so pretty happy with that.
