  1. SEPT 7th WORKOUT!


    LOWER [2] HIGH REPS

    5 minutes on the tread mill at 3.0 mph and 1.0 incline

    Stiff-Legged Dead-Lifts

    BARx15
    85x12
    95x12




    115x12
    135x12
    65x12

    WOW. I got a vid of me doing 95x12. I think my form is solid. Very little back is used and I felt a GREAT stretch in my hams on all sets. Critique if you want, but this is working for me with NO PAIN. I explain my form and if it looks like I round my back in my youtube description. My hammies are definitely hammered now.

    Leg Press

    90x25
    180x12
    270x12
    360x12
    140x15

    Also felt good. Had some awesome mind-muscle connection after doing SLDL's and to the rest of my workout. Hitting the entire quads with these and it felt awesome!

    Lying Leg Curls SUPERSET with Leg Extensions

    30x20/60x20
    40x12/72x12
    50x12/84x12
    60x12/96x12
    35x15/60x15

    Used the "Magnum" machine for Leg Extensions since the other Leg Extension machine was being used. It's all good. Noticed a different feel on it but that's good cuz I'm doing ham curls and leg ext. twice a week! Good to have a different feel!

    TRI-SET: Standing Smith-Machine Calf Raises; Seated Calf Raises; Bench Ab-Leg Crunches

    90x20/45x15/20
    140x12/65x12/20
    180x12/65x12/20
    90x15/45x12/20

    Wow... Supersetting calves with calves was a great idea because I feel much more than just doing a single calf exercise alone. HAVE I FOUND OUT THE SUPER SECRET TO MAKING MY CALVES GFH!? Possibly... we'll see after I try to superset calves with calves more...

    Other notes
    Great workout overall. Very pleased with this last week's of workouts. Hope it gets better as I go back to barbells again! Starting to get things down like SLDL's and calves with are AWESOME. Hammie(er) time!

    Video to come after it uploads

    This girl is hot AND she does SLDL's! I love a girl who works out!

    175x7 PR!]/185x7
    185x3+1 [PR!]/205x7 [PR!]
    135x12/135x12

    Felt super good on these. Decided to do one more working set than usual because I felt so good and I didn't know I could do BB Rows with so much weight! Feels good man!

    Seated Barbell Shoulder Press SUPERSET with BodyWeight Pull-Ups

    BARx15/7
    75x7/7
    95x7/7

    36'sx7/80'sx7
    48'sx7/95'sx7

    24'sx12/XXXX

    Strong contraction on the CrossOvers. Definitely a chest killer!

    Skull Crushers SUPERSET with Curls

    Left elbow tendon or something hurt a little. Curls were OK. I just don't like working arms that much lol

    Other Notes

    True that. I think I still have like 2 weeks left of IGF-2 (new formula) and then I'm thinking of tapering down with the sample of IGF-2 (old formula) since it's less potent.

    I definitely want to do another cycle of IGF-2 in the near future though

  13. SEPT 10th WORKOUT!


    LOWER [1] HIGH REPS

    5 minutes on the treadmill at 3.0-3.5mph and 2.0 incline

    SQWATS

    BARx20
    95x12
    145x12
    195x12
    235x15

    Wow... I got to 12 reps and was like, "Not enough stimulation." BAM busted out 3 more easily. Definitely gonna raise it to 245 next Lower 1 High Rep day. I'm extremely surprised and happy about these crazy strength gains!

    Walking Dumbbell Lunges

    30'sx14
    40'sx12
    50'sx12

    Felt good. It's at the right spot at this time. If we had increments of 2.5lbs for dumbbells... that would be best. I'll have that when I go back to university next week.

    Leg Extensions SUPERSET with Lying Leg Curls

    70x20/30x20
    90x15/40x15
    110x15/45x15
    130x15/50x15

    Had a great mind-muscle connection on both exercises. My legs were feeling quite filled after this. That's always a good feeling!

    Seated Calf Raises SUPERSET with Standing Smith-Machine Calf Raises

    45x15x3/90x15x3

    The mind-muscle connection continued as the pump in my calves actually were painful! So I didn't up the weight. Craziness!

    Weighted Crunches SUPERSET with Hanging Leg Raises

    3 sets of each.

    10 minutes in the dry sauna

    10 minutes on the treadmill and 3.0mph and 1.0 inline

    Other notes
    Great workout overall. It's nice chatting it up with old friends from the gym while doing low-intensity cardio. Passes the time fast!

    LOL I'm young. But I'm gaining inches on the waist too Come time to go back to university, I will be biking at least 30 minutes every school day (to and fro, home to classes to work to home). Need to get that waist smaller!

  17. SEPT 12th WORKOUT!


    UPPER [2] HIGH REPS

    5 minute warm-up on treadmill at 3.0mph and 2.0 incline.

    Incline Barbell Bench Press SUPERSET with One-Arm Dumbbell Rows

    BARx15x2/40x15x2
    105x12/60x12
    125x12/75x12
    145x12[PR!]/85x12
    95x10/65x12

    Up 10 lbs from 135 to 145 easily! For the last set of 95, held at the bottom for 3 seconds and about 2-3 inches away from collarbone. Good times!

    BodyWeight Parallel Bar Dips SUPERSET with Close-Grip Pull-Downs

    Dips: 12 reps x 5 sets

    Pull-Downs:
    72x15
    96x12
    108x12
    120x12
    84x15

    Great mind-muscle connection for the pull-downs. Really felt it in my lower lats! Dips were tough. Last two sets I had to rest-pause at rep 10 and rep 9, respectively. Dips are usually my strong point too.

    One-Arm Rear Laterals SUPERSET with One-Arm Side Laterals

    5 sets of 12 reps each exercise and each arm

    Wanted to change it up and it was great stimulation. Would do again

    Close-Grip Bench Press SUPERSET with Barbell Curls

    4 sets each exercise

    Was kinda out of it by now. Blah!

    Other Notes

    I'm tired.

  18. SEPT 15th WORKOUT!


    LOWER [2] POWER

    4 minutes of the treadmill to warm up

    Stiff-Legged Deadlifts

    BARxWARMUP
    95x7
    135x7
    185x7
    225x7

    Felt good. I'm getting the hang of these and really feeling that incredible stretch in the hams.

    Leg Press

    90x20
    180x7
    270x7
    360x7
    450x7

    Hm... decided not to push it to 500+ today... Still not feeling so good.

    Glute Ham Raises

    These ARE SO FREAKING HARD

    Why? They just are. Felt it more in the short head of the biceps femoris... And it kinda hurt. I could only do negatives since I couldn't get myself up on the positives. Crazy difficult and not worth the trouble now since I have no support. I would use the decline bench and set it up with the flat bench horizontal and had to set up a stepper in front of me from dropping all the way to the floor. Way too much set up for an exercise I have no strength to do. I think once I'm able to do as much as my bodyweight on lying leg curls, I'll be able to do GHR's.

    Lying Leg Curls SUPERSET with Leg Extensions

    5 sets with rest only in between going to machines (~20-30s).

    This girl was eyeing me. She was cute LOL. Made me wanna push harder!

    Hanging Leg Raises SUPERSET with Dumbbell Calf Raises SUPERSET with Weighted Crunches

    3 sets only. I was spent. Body is not fully recovered from sickness

    These were O.K. Nothing special.

    Other notes

    Kinda a bad workout since I'm just recovering from sickness. But I was feeling terrible not going to the gym. So I went Some cute girls there eyeing me. LOL I remember a couple years ago when NO GIRLS were eyeing me. How things have changed... And it's not like I was wearing SEXXXY clothes. A baggy shirt and baggy sweats! ROFLS. Whatev. I'm tired. Gonna chill with the lady now. YEEE~

    UPPER [2] HEAVY

    Flat Dumbbell Bench Press SUPERSET with Barbell Rows

    40'sx12/75x12
    50'sx7/125x7
    60'sx7/155x7
    70'sx7/175x7
    80'sx7/175x7
    85'sx6[PR!]/125x10

    YAY! PERSONAL RECORD! Once I hit 85's for 7 reps, I'm gonna try for 90's. I'm liking my system of going up in weights to reach my heaviest set. It preps my body to handle the heavy load. I don't think I could go from like 50's to 80's right away lol. Gotta work up.

    Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press SUPERSET with BodyWeight Pull-Ups

    25'sx12/7
    40'sx7/7
    45'sx7/7
    50'sx7/7
    55'sx6/7
    30'sx12/110x10 Lat Pull-Downs

    Low Incline Dumbbell Flies SUPERSET with Dumbbell Shrugs

    20'sx12/55'sx12
    25'sx10/75'sx10
    30'sx5/85'sx10

    Left shoulder/bicep was hurting on flies so I stopped.

    Skull-Crushers SUPERSET with Barbell Curls

    30x15/15
    40x10/10
    50x10/10 for 2 sets

    Felt good. Oddly strong for biceps as I feel they are my most lagging body part. Good tricep stretch. Very good!

    Close-Grip Bench Press SUPERSET with Alternating Dumbbell Curls

    Curls: 20'sx8 reps for each arm for 4 sets

    CGBP: BARx15, 95x12, 115x10x2 sets

    Pretty strong CGBP for doing a tricep exercise before it. Curls had an awesome contraction!

    Got WORK now. Finish updating laterlol

  20. SEPT 20th WORKOUT!


    LOWER [1] HEAVY

    Squats

    BARxWARM-UP
    95x7
    145x7
    195x7
    245x7
    285x7
    325x5 PR!!!

    PHEW. 325 was feeling good for the first 3 reps, but I quickly ran out of energy and was struggling those last two reps. It was good though. I felt good. haha and the walking DB lunges next really killed my legs!

    Walking Dumbbell Lunges

    30'sx12
    50'sx7
    65'sx7
    75'sx7 PR!!!

    These felt awesome! 75's were VERY tough since I've never hit those before. I know I'm going to feel good tomorrow

    Leg Extensions SUPERSET with Lying Leg Curls

    I was using the Cybex Eagle machines so they're very different from the ones at my home gym. But I'll get used to it. Seems like these machines feel heavier for leg extensions and lighter for leg curls But it's all good. Just gotta get adjusted to it. And the machines are right next to each other. That's always good!

    Seated Calf Raises SUPERSET with Standing Calf Raises

    These machines are close to each other as well. But the seated calf machine sucks. Something wrong with the padding for the thighs. The standing machine is awesome. Turn my toes out and I'm getting that inner calf like I want (especially for my left leg which is drastically lagging). But it was feeling good. Different machines still so gotta get used to it as well.

    Hanging Leg Raises SUPERSET with Weighted Crunches

    ABBBSSSS.... are pretty much nonexistent now. But still gotta work em so I have some bumpies when I cut. My lady loves the abs so I gotta get em sooner rather than later lol.

    Other notes
    Just a really awesome workout. No complaints. Feeling good especially since parking is free on the weekends for my school. I plan on getting a parking permit because I'll be at school quite often and late and don't want to be biking home at 1am 3 times a week lol $124 for 12 weeks... Not too bad.

    75'sx7/110x7 PR!!!
    80'sx3 PR!!!

    PR's. Doesn't get better than that lol I remember back in the day when I couldn't even get 50's on incline up by myself. LOOK AT ME NOW, MA! LOOK. AT. ME. NOW.

  29. Final Review!!!







    Start of log: ~155 lbs
    NOW of log: ~170 lbs

    Notable PR's of log:
    Flat Barbell Bench Press: 185x3, 175x7
    Incline Barbell Bench Press: 175x4, 145x12
    Flat Dumbbell Bench Press: 85 lb'ers x 6
    Incline Dumbbell Bench Press: 75 lb'ers x 7, 80 lb'ers x 3
    Barbell Rows: 205x7
    One-Arm Dumbbell Rows: 110x7
    Stiff-Legged Deadlifts: 225x7
    Squat: 315x7, 325x5, 235x15
    Walking Dumbbell Lunges: 75'sx14paces
    Leg Press: 500x7


    What made the difference?
    I've definitely been eating better and more. This crazy training variation definitely keeps my muscles guessing and growing. I've been getting adequate rest every night with 8-10 hours a day.

    IGF-2 definitely helps with sleep and recovery. DOMS really don't hit whether it's a low rep/heavy weight or high rep/moderate weight day. Most likely the increase in production of natural growth hormone is helping with that.

    Late in the log now, I'm feeling a little bit of lethargy, but nothing that isn't hurting me because I'm on summer break LOL But early on, I was quite fine!

    NeoVar: Recomped definitely helped with strength gains. But it could have been all the great rest I've been getting and the IGF-2 which allowed my muscles to heal quickly and get bigger. But definitely can't keep NeoVar down. It's good stuff! I really like taking it pre-workout. Creatine pre-workout has always made a difference for me.


    Sorry, no final video I forgot my camera back home... I'll get one up for sure when I come home on October 10th (MY BIRTHDAY) or sometime that weekend.

    Special thanks to the AN team for joining me in this log and supporting me this whole time. It was a blast!
