  2. I'm late with my postings too, damn, new job is taking its toll, been skipping meals 'cause I just don't have enough hours in a day. NOT GOOD :

    Been tired as hell too but managed to FORCE IN two sessions, just maintenance really, didn't have energy for anything else

    Will post tomorrow, now I need to home and EAT ' cause I had a "BACK MUTILATION WORKOUT" TODAY AND I'M FREAKIN' STARVING !!!!

  3. I love me some Back Mutilation Workouts...haven't done one in a while. Since my workout is all funky I don't get to do the high-volume training a lot of you guys, women in this case (don't get used to my political correctness), use.

    Snakes and spiders (Australia is claimed to have the nine most poisonous spiders in the world!) will haunt you on the land, and hell, even the plants are vicious! The world's most painful plant - the stinging tree lives here. What a welcoming land this is
    haha wow, thanks for the welcome :P Guess it's sunny and warm though....so I'll take it :P

    yeah.... thats why i won't move back there. i'll stay here with my great whites and black widows thank you very much.

  7. I’d take “vicious” animals in place of vicious people ANY TIME ! I moved to the Roo land 8 years ago from Europe and it is the best thing I’ve done in my life. People here are so relaxed, friendly and easy going I thought at first there was something wrong with them!

    Where in Europe?

    I think London is actually one of my least favorite places on the planet... I've had some nice nights there - but the lifestyles of those people are just awful for the most part. The work culture was pretty much work late, then hit the pub for some fried sh*t and 8 or 9 pints... but I digress.

    Would love to see Australia some day. I hear its incredible - but a long ass plane ride from the Rotten Apple.

    I've grown to like NYC over the past 4 or 5 years...

    Couldn't get used to London... I gave it 4 months - against my will.

  11. 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...

    Unfortunately Cannons there are a small, select group of loud-mouth travelling f8ckwads from your country that give the rest of you good folk a bad name - not that that should be an excuse for ar$eholdom on the part of the Europeans - short memories, they forget who came to the rescue in WWII...

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

    Sorry for hijacking your thread DragonFly!

    THE WEATHER IS HORRIBLE, WET AND COLD, but don't take it from me, I'm a lizard that lives in the tropics so anything under 23C is too cold for me

    HAHA, no problem JKP, random discussion is always welcome, who wants to read about training and nutrition ALL THE TIME ?!!

    Besides, you're a bloody annoying, ill-mannered KIWI and that’s why we love ya

    Yep, lot of Europeans are like that, they thrive on the culture of image and snobbery

    That is why a like it better here, amongst snakes and spiders

    Beautiful, I basically grew up on a ship, my father was a captain. I love ships, if I was rich enough I'd buy on of these and sail the world !

  15. 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:

    DAY 31

    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.

    DAY 33

    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 !

  16. 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???

    That is beyond my imagination JKP !


    I know what I'd be like ...

  18. DAY35

    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 :
    1RPM,1Recreate, 3PwFULL

    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 :


    1st TRI-SUPERSET:

    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!!


    2nd SUPERSET:

    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!


    3rd FINISH-OFF:


    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!!!

  19. if it ain’t the Lawn mower Starter Demo!!!
    lol - that's a move I used to break out during my disco days - then followed with the 'Sprinkler' and the 'Hedge Clippers'!

    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?

  20. Sorry i missed this, awesome log, just read through it so far, wich took quite a while, pretty funny too.

    Coudln't have described it better myself. Ive been in London 3 years now and the mon-fri lifestyle is very much how you described it, hence why so many are out of shape. People at work think im crazy for going to the gym 5 times a week and drinking those "muscle shakes" in the kitchen. NYC is the greatest city i've ever been to, friendliest people ever.

    DF im only 6 pages late! You've got some ncie strength going on their for a ladeee:chick:

    Maybe, one day....problem is I HATE bodybuilding type workouts, I COULD NOT do a session of bicep curls and bicep curls ONLY, isolation exercises numb me , give me deads and cleans any day instead

  27. Hey JKP,

    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:



    DAY36



    1RPM,1Drive,1Recreate, 3PwFULL

    1st SUPERSET:

    1. Front Squat +
    2. Deadlift


    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


    FINISH OFF:

    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
    ….82.5lb 5x

    3rd SUPERSET:

    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

    Thanks Mr Super-Ripped
    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

    True, The Immigration Department likes to use them in their special adds - as a deterring strategy against illegal immigrants!
    You don’t see jellies “advertised” in tourist brochures .... how strange !
