    depends. Today I sigged it(a combination) depends on how I think it is best utilized that day. anyone burp afterwards I always burpafterI drink it; although i seem to burp a lot from eating so much food and louder

    Ive got good news Animal flex seems to be working or the cortisol shot or both...Today was the first day I used both hands on a couple exercises.

    Incline Dumbbell press 35 lbs- 15 x's I felt some minor aches, nothing extreme that caused pain. I didn't get too intense since this is my first time trying my left side in months.

    Life fitness shoulder press I warmuped up and coun't do the set. so this is just my right arm 10 lbs -30x's

    Underhand cable push downs 20 lbs-18x's

    did warmup on left and it told me no. so I did triceps kickbacks(loud popping sound,when i flex it back, it has gotten better in the last few sdays it seems, thinking its severe tricep tendinitis with 5 lbs than 10 lbs many reps

    one arm cable row 45 lbs - 18 x's
    left 45 -10's next time will have to lower the weight with more reps

    widegrip pullups (assisted) Both hands 160- 15 x's
    160 backhang 1:00

    time will tell if I get a painful sore if so that was too much. if not time to go to work.

  7. I got great news regarding the situation Ive been in....

    No pain today

    Deadarm curls 15 lbs-15 x's

    one arm cable curl 5 lbs-20 x's

    Standing smith calve raises 25 lbs -13x's

    Good mornings (very wide stance, toes pointed forward)15 lbs -20 x's

    Smith Squats (wide grip stance) 45+25+25= 8 x's failed on nine couldn't get back up (these are just about ass to the floor, go to below parallel, pause a sec or two and return not no half squat stuff.

    Inner Hip abductor 70lbs-25x's

    Drank it and it gave me some nice energy to finish the workout. I was getting drain(I'm drained now) Life on a calorie restriction yeah) mixed Intra-aid with 20 oz of water worked well for me. Never tried the 50 ox might have to buy a gallon jug and try it good idea thoughout the workout!

    Them Scivation guys put like 20 scoops in a gallon jug and drink on it half or all day

    Yes sir, slow and steady back into it my man. Train smarter not harder until it all comes back up.

  12. Slow and steady is definitely the way to go here... don't wanna rush back into something. Trust me I know from tweaking my right knee... slowly easing into it again on heavy squats.

  13. Low incline db press 30 lbs-20 x's
    Chest stretch 15 lbs-1:00

    Homon 90 % db press 15 lbs-15

    kickbacks 20 lbs 15 x's

    one arm db rows 35 lbs- 15 x's

    barbell rows (false grip ) 25 (on each side) 10 x

    barbell shrugs 45 +45- 10 x's

    pullup(middle grip) 160- assisted 10 x's
    back hang 160 lbs- 1:00

    I think i overdid it today with either the db rows, the barbell rows or the shrug. My arm felt a little too much and back to the drawing board on these exercises, may have to cut them out. well see how sore elbow gets. On an up note no pain right now. Ice it good after workout.

    Had the Intra-aid when I was running out of steam and it re-energized me. this product has my approval boys and girls and if you know me you know I test logs objectively. The taste is what sets it apart, along with the energy it gives you, when your steam is low.

  14. Take it easy on that arm/elbow issue man. No need getting set back again. Good on ya for testing the waters though. You got work done anyway. Had to feel good even if the arm didn't afterwards?

    Very solid feedback. I hope your elbow gets better... heating pad, IB Profen, and ice FTW!

    I think your doing the right thing with these lower weights,but maybe you should take some time off buddy. I know the problem I had with my forearms we talked about a while back did'nt go away till I did just that. Good luck man I'll be following along.

    I might do that and just do calves,thanks. Time will tell.

    Alternate Db curls 10 lbs -20 x's strong squeeze at the top

    Reverse wrist curls on knee 5 lbs-30 x's

    Incline Nautilus calves 2 plates(F.R.O.M. pre contest ) 12 x's
    then I put on some extra weight just because I'm not training all out and did some Dc normal -10-15 stretch with 2 plates and 25. Then, did reverse calve raises a few sets(trib muscle-outer muscle)

    Did the Intra-aid with 25 oz of very cold water..drank some then added more water. Yes it doesn't taste as gritty with added water. Like it more like this.

    Life fitness leg curl machine #8 - 20 x's

    Life fitness leg extension #8-30 x's

  18. Most of us are the same way sm, we find that a little extra water makes it taste even better.

  19. I'm taking super care of my elbow. I mean the best ever!yeah did the same thing with the intra-aid alot fo water. good as usual, when we as humans become accustomed to what we have we forget how lucky we are. ive been used to intra-aid and I'm grateful for this opportunity. I changed my training due to I'm really just very slowly getting back into lifting upper body at very light weights.I'd also like to say bcaa's are useful for muscle wasting on patients that have this and I feel this has greatly helped spar a few lbs. also hmb has been proven to be useful for muscle wasting(all hmb though is pre-cursor to meaning it converts [just like a prohormone] to leucine so i think Lucine would do the same thing, regardless hmb has been proven by Layne Norton)

    chest Db floor press 30 lbs- many reps(could have gone a lot higher but didn't want to risk what happened last week. work smarter not harder) 3-4 sets warmup

    life fitness side lateral machine 40 lbs- a lot of reps 15-20
    3 sets warm up

    tricep kickbacks 20 lbs- 20 x's, 25 lbs, 10 x's
    elbow was popping pretty bad, no pain though. Tricep tendinitis , me thinks.

    then worked my outer calves(trib something)

    heres a tip put a dumb bell(or if you have ankle weights put them on) between your feet , get on a bench(your bed will work) hang your feet off and go up and down, works the hell out of your outer calves.

  20. Biceps, forearms, back, abs, traps

    went to another elbow specialist. I am hyperextensive (tendons & ligaments like loose rubber bands) esp in my upper body he says. (i was born like this) basically he said don't lock out because this causes major stress on a double jointed person and if it stays the same or gets worst he'll recommend his friend which specifically will do surgery to cut the inflammation out. time will tell he also said I'm doing the right thing by lifting lightly and accessing pain tolerance in relation to the weight utilized.

    Mixed the Intra-aid with 25 oz and am going to have to start doing it with 30-50 oz. makes last longer and taste better. Intra-aid is some strong tasting stuff.

    bicep curls 20 lbs- many reps
    slayermetal7 curls 25 lbs-20 at 5:00 in.
    YouTube - DC Training Back, Biceps, Forearms
    wide grip cable row 85-15
    pull downs 85- 15 x;s
    back hang 160 lbs assisted 1:00
    worked on lower abs
    shrugs on smith machine on a squat position. I put the bar on my traps since I don't think its a good idea to grip anything and just shrugs got up to 2 plates on each side for ten, nice and slow squeeze at the top so I felt every muscle in my traps filling with blood

    Have you tried using a standing calve machine to do shrugs?

    Also, you may think about overhead shrugs with a dumbbell or barbell.

  22. And the video is no longer available?

    What was it of?

    We're sorry, this video is no longer available.
