Conquering the Stage... with Shred Matrix!

Page 2 of 2 First 12
  1. No More Cheat Meals?!!!


    4 weeks out Diet change:

    No more cheat meals at all,
    Cardio is bumped up to 40 minutes per day, so what I do is, split it in to 2, 20 minute cardio sessions, one in the AM and the other
    in the PM.


    Cheat meals are gone, and no more pre-post workout carbs.
    Im already as flat as a pancake.

    The carbs are cut down, and I will be having a carb up day every 3-5 days as needed.

    BTW, my parents yelling at me for using supplements is really bugging me out at this point.

    I hate having comments like "why are you using our money for that kinda crap",
    "Why dont you do something better with your life than goto the gym and eating supplements",
    "How can you do that to your body?"



    But hey, I guess live through it and endure.


    So my total calories are down to about 2400 calories per day.
    I feel so anorexic lol.


    Shred Matrix will be taken upon waking up AND during the afternoon.

    Itll be a double duty metabolism boosting supp.


  2. Don't sweat the parent thing unless someone has ever done what we do no one will understand what all this really means to us. That is why you are HERE amoung people that all share the same desire for iron.

    Thanks for the support!
    I agree.

  4. Pretty grueling workout today, being carb depleted makes the workouts MUCH harder to complete.

    Not bad numbers though

    Shoulder and Bicep day

    Shoulder hammer strength
    25 lbs each arm x 6 reps
    35 lbs each arm x 6 reps
    35 lbs each arm x 6 reps

    The form was horrible, If someone has any pointers to stabilizing the hammer strengths, then help is welcome!

    Dumbbell seated shoulder presses
    50 lbs x 5
    50 lbs x 4
    50 lbs x 4
    50 lbs x 3

    40 lbs x 5
    40 lbs x 4
    40 lbs x 3 (and a half rep)

    30 lbs x 5
    30 lbs x 5
    30 lbs x 4


    Front raises
    15 lbs x 10 reps (3 second holds at the top) 3 sets
    10 lbs x 10 reps (3 second holds at the top) 3 sets

    Lateral Raise machine
    30 lbs x 7 reps 3 sets

    Lateral Raises
    15 lbs x 10 reps 3 sets
    10 lbs x 10 reps 3 sets

    Rear lateral raises?
    10 lbs x 10 reps 4 sets


    Seated Calf raises
    45 lb plate 15x 12 x 10 (slow, stretch nicely at the bottom,
    squeeze hard at the top)

    Alternating standing bicep curls
    40 lbs x 10 x 8 x 6
    30 lbs x 10
    20 lbs x 10

    EZ barbell curls

    10 lbs each side
    10 x 8 x 8 (hard squeeze at the top, slow on the negatives)

    There was almost no rest, as I hate to feel as if I'm wasting time.

    Did cardio after training. 20 minutes incline walking


    Also did cardio in the morning at 6 am.
    20 minutes walk (no inclines)
    10 minutes light jog



    Shred Matrix probably is what is
    keeping my sanity in these low carb days.
    (Practically keeping my energy levels up during the day
    and in the gym)

    Cant wait for saturday as thats my expected carb-up day.
  5. UGGh


    Saturday was horrible. None of the subway lines stopping near my gym were working properly, so it took me about 1 hour and 30 minutes to arrive near the gym, at that point, i needed to pick up my mother from her work.




    So Sunday i worked out

    Actually it was with one of my friends who is on a wheelchair, and being that I have to carry all his dumbbells (hes a strong guy, uses 90 lb dumbbells to rep on presses)

    So all the differrent weights he used, I had to carry, and
    not to mention helping him, on and off the wheelchair after every exercise.

    Pooped me out for my turn. But strength was still pretty awesome.


    Bench Press
    135 lbs x 10 x 9 x 8
    185 x 5 x5 x 5
    205 x 2 x 3

    My 205's suffered but its still certainly an improvement from 2-3 weeks ago where I was only doing 2-3 reps with 185's.

    Could be that I had a carb up day the day before this workout.

    Incline Bench Press
    135 x 5 x 5 x5

    Flat Dumbell press
    50 x 10 x 8 x 9

    Chest busters (dumbell close grip press kinda thing)
    35 x 10 x 10 x 6

    Chest flys
    50 x 10
    60 x 10
    70 x 10

    Lat pulldowns
    80 x 10 x 10
    90 x 10
    100 x 10

    Close grip
    90 x 10
    80 x 7
    70 x 6
    60 x 8
    50 x 7


    I was pooped. Not to mention it was a LONG workout since a workout partner was under special circumstances.

    Not bad though.
