2 DAYS ON RECREATE/PWFULL/AP-feeling like an alpha FE-MALE !!!

People from Europe, less the Scots and Irish, I've never gotten along with. As soon as they find out I'm American they turn their nose up at me. Such buttholes. I've never had such a strong dislike for such a large group of people. I'm always willing to give them a chance, but it never seems like they give me a chance. And people from England are the WORST!
I remember being in Boston for Independence Day. I was watching the 21-Gun Salute from the USS Constitution on the Charles River. There were a bunch of British people there that were getting all excited and cheering and I could help but say, "You do realize that that very ship kicked you guys' ASS, dont you?"
Here's a picture I took...

For what it's worth, I dig the Seppos. Been there, ate at Dennys. Sipped cocktails with some fine Southern Ladies.

OK, ENOUGH of the random stuff or I’ll NEVER post my progress/regress report!
So, I started my new job last Monday and that messed up a lot of things.
For starters, I used to be a night bird and I would rarely go to bed before 1:30AM.
That meant I would wake up late, usually around 8:30ish. I also used to train at 4:30PM.
With the new job, I’ve been getting up at 7ish.
The problem is my body clock is not programmed to go sleep at 11PM, so for the whole F#$%ING week I’ve been feeling like a freakin’ walking zombie.
I’m usually in bed by 11PM DEAD TIRED, BUT I CAN’T SLEEP, DAMN IT !!!!
Instead I toss and turn for hours and when I finally do go to sleep, it is very restless and shallow and quite frequently I’m waking up throughout the night.
I HATE IT !!!!! :
Obviously training has suffered, first, I can’t get to the gym before 5:30PM and by then I feel as enthusiastic as a dead fish.
First training session:
CHEST, BIS, TRIS
I knew it was condemned to be a disaster, despite a triple instead of the “usual” double dose of PwFULL (took also 1 Recreate as I normally do).
I was tired, had no energy or drive.
It was a maintenance session, numbers stayed the same weight-wise but I couldn’t pull out as many reps as I normally do.
I felt totally spent out and was tempted to walk out in a middle of a workout because it just felt like pointless torture.
Still, I grit my teeth and finished it.
After 1-day rest I decided to hit it again, didn’t feel as bad as on DAY 31 but not much better either.
This time I took 3PwFULL/2Recreate
I was definitely more awake and eager to release all the accumulated anger and frustration :clean:
After some core warmup I hit the DEADS.
I was afraid that I’d die on 132lbs ,
but I pulled out that easily, then moved onto 143lb and pulled out 10 reps instead of the usual 8.
Things started looking up and in no time I was hammering my PR weight of 165lb.
I was happy with that and I decided not to try breaking PRs ‘cause I simply didn’t feel 100% . Plus, I was thrilled enough that I didn’t let myself down on the ultimate strength test : THE DEAD
I moved onto Good Mornings, haven’t done them in AGES. I decided to superset them with Overhead Squats. Went heavy on the Good Mornings and light on the squats, focusing on getting my a$$ as close to the ground as possible.
I had some knob-heads commenting as I was doing GM, “your squats look kind of weird !“.
They’re not SQUATS !!!! AND NEXT TIME YOU TALK TO ME IN THE MIDDLE OF MY WORKOUT I’LL BITE YOUR HEAD OFF !!!!
Went up to 154lb on the GM (10 reps), which is only 5lb less than my PR but that PR was NOT DONE following a DEAD session !
I was then happy to call it quits. Didn’t do much you say ? Well, I was in a gym for an hour and a half and all I was doing was deadlifts and GM, without too much rest between sets. I don’t want to start typing how many sets I’ve done, for all those of you who follow Volcom’s log, yeah, it was something like that !
10-11-2008, 07:10 AM
lol - like the GIFs!
I am hoping that upped dose of PFull should help you get into a decent sleeping pattern again DragonFly.
When the twins were born, I was managing on 4-5hrs of broken sleep for 4 months (plus work, gym etc) - that's why I worship the stuff - can you imagine how how bloody annoying and ill-mannered I would have been otherwise???

Gods were with me today, went off to a local supplement store and as a bloody a supplement addict that I am, couldn’t help but picking up a discounted bottle of AN RPM. It was sooo dirt cheap, I couldn’t believe it !
I was thrilled indeed, thought it was time to spice things up a bit and to eradicate this “job-induced-lethargy”
I was running RPM/Drive about 10 months ago and liked it.
So, 10min before a workout I downed my secret weapons :
As I walked in the gym I could feel, as JKP would put it “All hell breaking loose”
I knew I was in for some HARDCORE IRON PUMPING …let me rephrase that :
1. Bent Over Barbell Row +
2. Standing Barbell Military Press +
3. Plate Swing (same as kettlebell swing except you swing the plate all the way up above your head)
1. 74.8lb 10x
2. 44lb 10x
3. 22lb 10x
1. 88lb 8x
2. 52.8lb 8x
3. 24.9lb 8x
1. 93.5lb 6x
2. 60.5lb 6x
3. 24.9lb 6x
1. 99lb 6x
2. 66lb 5x, failed at 6,
3. 24.9lb 6x
And again, same weight:
1. 99lb 6x
2. 66lb 4x, failed at 5, shoulders giving up
3. 24.9lb 6x
Ain’t done yet, last one for the pump !!!
1. 93.5lb 6x dropset to
1. 82.7lb 6x
2. 60.5lb 6x dropset to
2. 55lb 4x
3. 24.9lb 6x
SPEW, that was HARD!!
1. Lat Pulldown + 2. Lateral Raise (above parallel, don’t dig the to-parallel , that is the shoulder equivalent of ¼ squats ! )
Note: went light on the Lat Raise, it was only to keep the shoulders working before the final meltdown: Seated Dumbell Shoulder Press
1. 99lb 6x
2. 2x13.2lb 6x
1. 110lb 6x
2. 2x13.2lb 6x
1. 121lb* 4x dropset to
1. 110lb 1x ....... ooops, too heavy !
2. 2x13.2lb 6x
1. 121lb* 3x dropset to
1. 99lb 4x dropset to
1. 79.2lb 6x
2. 2x13.2lb 6x
* PR weight!
Dumbell Shoulder Press
1. 2x33lb 10x
2. 2x38.5lb* 6x (last 3 assisted)
3. 2x38.5lb* 6x (last 3 assisted)
* PR weight!
It was an AWESOME WORKOUT, everything was there: AGGRESSION, EUPHORIA, DRIVE …..and, LAST but NOT the LEAST: COMIC RELIEF: as I was finishing off, there was a guy doing 1-arm bent over dumbell rows, he was swinging so much I thought, damn if it ain’t the Lawn mower Starter Demo!!!
10-12-2008, 07:46 AM
lol - that's a move I used to break out during my disco days - then followed with the 'Sprinkler' and the 'Hedge Clippers'!if it ain’t the Lawn mower Starter Demo!!!
Don't know about you DF, but I find it hard to describe Drive - as a non-stim I guess it's a 'background' supp but sometimes I do feel a charged feeling.
I've just about finished a 12 day run from some samples - ran with the RPM combo (+Prime) and solo (+Prime) - what are your thoughts?
10-12-2008, 09:55 AM
Sorry i missed this, awesome log, just read through it so far, wich took quite a while, pretty funny too.
Workouts are very detailed, and it sounds like your loving this stack, keep it up, and all the best..Russian

I don’t know about Prime but I can say stacking RPM with Recreate/PwFULL is like pouring oil on fire ! ….and adding Drive to it is like pouring even more oil….which brings me to:
1. Front Squat +
Note: I did Deads on DAY33, and back again on DAY35, and so, hams and back were still in DOMS, but I SIMPLY FELT LIKE DOING DEADS AGAIN !!!!
1. 60.5lb 8x
2. 88lb 8x
1. 77lb 8x
2. 110lb 8x
1. 88lb 6x
2. 132lb 6x
1. 99lb 6x
2. 143lb 6x
Can’t believe I’m still going !!!! Aren’t back and hams supposed to be too rooted for this ?!!!
1. 104.5lb 5 (started to lean forward on last couple of reps, time to drop weight)
2. 148.5lb 5 (not dropping on deads )
1. 99lb 6x
2. 154lb 6x
HOLY CRAP !!!! DID I JUST DO THAT ?!!!
My PR on deads is 170.5lb but anything above 154lb is HARD WORK : I usually TAKE AGES to mentally prepare for +154lb lifts and I NEVER EVER perform them in a superset…and I also NEVER EVER PERFORM THEM TWO DAYS APPART !!!!!
Plus, 104.5lb was a PR for Front Squats, and they were a$$ DOWN TO THE GROUND, usually I only go just below parallel
1. 82.5lb 8x
2. 132lb 8
Jeeez, that felt as light as a feather
2nd BENCH PRESS
Felt like benching just to give legs a bit of a break …. Went light here, besides, I already benched this week and I never do bench twice a week (then again, been stuck at the same weight for a couple of weeks now so I figured it was time to change things a bit )
1. 69.3lb 10x
2. 77lb 8x
3. 82.5lb 8x
4. 88lb 5x dropset to
1. Ham curls+
2. Jumping Dumbell Squat
1. 24lb 8x/8x/8x
2. 2x33lb 8x/8x/8x
1. 24lb 8x dropset to
1. 18lb 8x
2. 2x33lb 8x dropset to
2. 2x22lb 8x
I felt just bit spent out after Dead/Front Squat combo, so I think next time, I’ll start off with 1Drive,1Recreate, 3PwFULL and then pop 1RPM in the middle of a workout as a pick-me-up Strategicmove
A side note: both day 35 and 36 I had a meal 2hrs before a workout so the supps were taken “on empty” (just before hitting the gym), normally, I would have a small protein shake 45min-1hr b4 a workout. The stack DEFINITELY KICKS IN BETTER “ON EMPTY”.
ALL TOGETHER :
Another GREAT workout, euphoric, charged and aggressive: LIKE A DRAGON ON STEROIDS !!!
(sorry JKP, had to do the dragon-thing again
10-13-2008, 01:21 PM
Lookin' good in here dragonfly! I love your warrior spirit. Way to stick it through and finish your workouts!! Hope you're getting more rest.
10-14-2008, 07:07 AM
Not getting more sleep unfortunately, last night was TEEEEERRIBLE, barely got 5 hrs, I even went back to my "old times" : 1AMish, hoping I would at least skip the restless INSOMNIATIC phase, no luck
However, on a bright note, seems like my body is beginning to adapt to less sleep
I wasn't nearly as wasted today as I thought I'd be, didn't even feel like I desperately needed a dose of pills to get me going, just my ipod

I was REALLY happy about Front squats though, I went all the way down to the pit and stared at the ceiling rather than straight ahead (as you pointed out awhile back), helped a A LOT to stay upright, thanks for the tip !
10-15-2008, 07:21 PM
Addition of RPM/Drive to PwFULL/Recreate was a definite kick in the a$$, just when I needed it most
So much that today ….
….I felt like attacking my weakest link, THE BENCH.
Previous PR : 100lb; 3 sets of 6 reps, last 3 reps in each set were assisted
2. 100lb ......4x dropset to
3. 100lb......5x (squeezed another rep here, ) dropset to
And that was ALL by MYSELF, no spotter today
Other than the stack, think benching twice a week last week had something to do with this
Next time I need to bump the weight up pass the 100lb mark
Still managing quite well on 6-7hrs of sleep. Unbelievable !

I've been sneaking some dropsets in too - killer!
My mother taught me it's not polite to discuss a ladies' weight.... but she's not here now. And despite her best intentions I'm a rude b@stard.
How's is your weight tracking DF? Bets are you're adding some lean mass.
10-17-2008, 07:40 AM
1. Cable crunches
1. 141lb 10x
2. 161lb 8x dropset to
3. 161lb 6x dropset to
.....150lb 4x dropset to
Now that the core is warmed up, time to get into serious business:
*173lb NEW PR !!!
10-17-2008, 08:06 AM
DAY 41 CONT.
Keep hammering back& legs
1. 99lb 8x
2. 121lb 8x
3. 143lb 8x
4. 154lb 8x dropset to
.....143lb 8x dropset to
Felt EXTREMELY SWITCHED ON and FOCUSED for the whole workout. ENDURANCE was AMAAAAAAZING, so was the RECOVERY between sets. DRIVE WAS PURE INSANITY, I DID NOT FEEL LIKE STOPPING AT ALL !!!!
.... I was DOPED !
...no wonder, 'cause today's workout was brought to you by:
