YoungsterZ Epi Log! EPISTANE
- 09-22-2012, 01:30 AM
Alrighty boys I think the effects are slowly approaching. I do know that my strength is up for sure. My deadlifts today were improved already from last time, and I felt like I could've squeezed a couple more out if my grip wasn't slipping. Chalk is gunna be necessary! Any places you guys know of that have it? Maybe it's just in my head, but I felt a little more vascularity in my chest for some reason. Again, maybe placebo lol idk...
Took half a scoop pre-workout of White Flood, didnt feel anything. Ended up taking another half, making a full scoop altogether. Not my fav preworkout I've tried, but the energy felt clean and crisp if that makes sense. Felt a little more focused.. and my Ubiquinol probably helped keep my heartbeat under control.. not sure yet. Something I didnt like about White Flood is that it doesnt pack the skin heat feeling and jitter(beta alanine I believe?)
anyways, not going to post my whole workout because its late and I'm exhausted...just going to post the "main" lifts!
-Lat pulldown- 105x10, 105x10, 135x8, 150x5
-T-bar rows w/barbell- 45x10, 45x10, 90x10, 90x10
-DEADLIFT- 175x8, 175x8, 225x8, 255x7
-Preacher Curls- 65x8, 75x8, 85x5, 90x4 ALSO WENT UP SLIGHTLY
-DB Incline Curls- 20x16, 20x16
AGAIN, not all of my w/o is included but gave you the gist !
Macs: cals-3250, protein-240g, carbs- 280g

Sorry it's a day late, I didn't get home from work last night until almost 1 in the morning..so there was no way I was logging ha. So this is for yesterday, day eleven.
So it was LEG DAY :-) man, maybe I am just lucky and not experiencing side effects because I don't think the epi has really hit me fully...or it truly HASN'T taken full effect yet. (which is very likely because I should still have another week before I probably really start having fun with gains). But whatever the case, my strength is rising. NOT ONLY ARE MY LIFTS UP, BUT MY CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING AS WELL.
-Leg press- 195x10, 195x10, 285x8, 335x6
-Calf press- 195x20, 195x20, 195x20
-Squats- 155x8, 155x8, 195x6, 215x3
-Seated leg curl- 70x12, 90x12
-Hip abduction machine- 30x20, 50x14 (first time using)
Keep in mind that my squats might dramatically go up, but not all because of the Epi. Earlier in my log I stated that for a couple years squats were really not part of any training of mine due to personal reasons. So I am hitting it hard on them right now!

Looking good...your leg routine looks similar to mine, both on heavy days and hypertrophy...you will be suprised how much strength and weight gains you will make by increasing deads and squats...ive been focusing on box quats, my legs have gotten so much thicker, just not defined which is frusterating
09-23-2012, 02:54 PM
Thanks homie. Yeah I'm making sure to try and work all sides of my legs and get them strong. I still need to try the box squatsOriginally Posted by blayke88

Ya thats good..ya on leg press i put my feet a little closer together, then squats its usually shoulder width for legs...you can also put a chair behind you when.you squat, works well...i may do an epi cycle later in the year after my current sd cycle..i love epi
09-23-2012, 03:42 PM
I actually keep my feet planted just slightly wider than shoulder width on both lifts. Wide squats can also be really beneficial. Yeaah this is my first epi run, and I hope to run SD in the future. Time will tell.Originally Posted by blayke88

Yea i used to hate squats and deads, i love em now....yea ope u got some sd before the ban, prolly expensive now
09-23-2012, 11:15 PM
Got four bottles I'd agree, they are now two of my favorite lifts as wellOriginally Posted by blayke88

DAY 12: Again I'm a day late, but better than not at all. Work has been stupidly busy and hectic and I've been the closer 3 days in a row. Thought maybe I was getting an ear infection or getting sick but it turns out I think I just needed a real good night of sleep. Popped my 3z pills last night and passed out! Day 12 was a much needed rest day.
MACS- Cals 3,250 & Protein 230g & Carbs 350g (higher than I'd like)
Off to hit chest for day 13 !!
09-24-2012, 07:25 PM
Good luck...i love hitting my chest...it has really grown lately..ive been using drop sets for flat and incline bench, may wna try it, really shocked my chest along with weighted chest dips

I'm feeling the same thing in my knee, i know the sd is starting to dry me out..need some glucosimine
09-24-2012, 07:44 PM
Just got home from the gym guys. I think it's safe to say that strength mode has been activated before I hit the gym, my veins looked like pipe cleaners under my skin! After I hit the first sets of my workouts, I was looking quite a bit fuller inside my shirt and definitely gave me a boost of confidence.
Also a couple updates: Erections are still strong. No acne. No extra rage which is good lol I have a bad enough temper on my own. No cramping yet.
@Cokeholio: no dryness whatsoever for me. Are you taking glucosamine and how much? I take a glucosamine msm at rec dose and preloaded it 10 days before my cycle
09-24-2012, 08:24 PM
Damn I should've got it. I got orange triad which has a joint support recipe in it. It helps a lot but I think I would've been better off with gluco

As I stated earlier, I think it's safe to say I'm finally there where I feel things are in motion. I was more than happy with the way I felt throughout my time at the gym today. Body felt great and my muscles were pumped. My lifts were definitely stronger and easier to finish off. Going to push myself really hard(but safely) now that I've got the extra boost

Hmm u may alreay do this, but add almonds throughout the day, add more whole eggs for breakfast, or at night add cottage cheese or a glass of whole milk throughout the day even before bed and mix some egg whites in the milk
09-25-2012, 11:42 AM
Never thought of almonds. I throw a whole egg into my casein shake every night, sometimes even two of em. I'll grab some cottage cheese today and try that out. And I love putting egg whites in all my shakes when I can afford it. Plus I usually have whole eggs in the a.m. but lately they upset my stomach. Weird..

@fightclub2012 not anything significant, a couple pounds
@blayke88 only problem with egg whites that I hate is how much gas it gives me lol...this epi already has me gassy enough o_O

09-25-2012, 03:21 PM
hmmmm... surprises me that it hasn't kicked into full gear. anyways great to see youre staying consistent! i can't wait to start but im waiting till winter hits since i'll be working much less and i can really focus on my diet. winter time is mass season.
09-25-2012, 03:26 PM
It's very possible I need a higher dose, idk though. Either way I'm staying at 40 another week. I'm only two weeks in, so it's not a surprise to me that I'm just barely making gainsOriginally Posted by jasonk202

Man I don't know WTF is up, but the last couple days my stomach has been nonstop churning and rumbling. I feel like I have to **** almost every hour, so I go to the bathroom and it ends up being just a huge pocket of gas.... Sorry for the image lol but I need some advice :\
09-25-2012, 08:08 PM
My advice would be to buy some milk of mag or take stool softners to clean out your system, you feel much better, your body is trying to tell you something ha
09-25-2012, 08:13 PM
Whats milk of mag? And all stool softeners do really is help with constipation(which is far from the problem) hahaOriginally Posted by blayke88
