log looking poops! nice job son
So I finally got in a leg day... nothing extremely spectacular BUT still huge for a guy who hasnt directly trained legs for about 7-8 months (other then climbing 20-40 ladders with 45lb satellite dishes on my shoulder or previous stated activity now carrying heavy stuff being on my feet all day and kickin a shovel).... needless to say I could hardly make it up the stairs to my apt. afterwords and even worse was going back DOWN the stairs, to go get groceries, without my legs giving out.
Also threw in some Bis in the end of the routine to give em a lil pump and since they are one body part that doesnt get hit twice a week while nearly everything else does either directly or indirectly.
Because of this (running legs and bis on sat) now I am going to move Back and bis from monday to tuesday and shoulders/tris to monday. This makes more sense over all with my new shoulder routine as well since there are now more pressing movements and I want to keep it a lil further from thurs, my chest day, to allow full recovery (muscle and CNS) before hitting it again, also allows tris to be totally fresh and go HEAVY both days. I will no longer be doing my BW hand stand pushups and super sized sets of incline and flat pushups on sunday because of this, there is no longer any need and dont want to wear out my shoulders/tris with weak exercises the day before I hit em hard.
hopefully it makes sense....
Previously my routine looked like this and now looks like this....
- THURS-Chest_____________1. THURS-Chest
- FRI-Off__________________2. FRI-Off
- SAT-Off _________________3. SAT-Legs/Bis
- SUN-BW routine___________4. SUN-Off
- MON-Back/Bi _____________5. MON-Shoulders/Tri
- TUES-Shoulders/Tri________6. TUES-Back/Bi
- WED-Off_________________7. WED-Off
thurrrr, thats easier to understand than my ramblings for sure....
Now heres what I did for my lil leg comeback.
Squats- 135x10, 135x20/*15(SCR), 135x10
Leg Curl machine- 120x10, 165x10, 210x10(*)
Seated calf raises- bw+90x20, BW+90x15, BW+90x10
Double cable curls-45x15
DB Hammer curls-30x20(l/r:10/10 alternating)
Over head double cable curls-35x15 (huge PUMP)
Seated leg Extensions-90x10
* SCR= Standing Calf Raises, was done right after 20 reps squats with no pause.
* possibly a PR but havnt checked yet, will do so now.... Couldnt believe how strong my hammies felt today!
Just straight out stopped after that since I was bout to puke and only had 5 min left before the gym closed anyways..... Leg days really take it out of me, specially since I did all this in 25 min with out much rest and mixed in upper body work AND legs... But it felt goooood to do legs again.
Funny thing was Ive been worried bout squating again since I injured my back almost a year ago with my last comeback where I started with my old working weight of 225 like a dumbass after not lifting for a while..... so this time I wasnt even going to hit squats, even had 2 plates loaded on the leg press at first then looked at the rack and heard it callin my name... cant ignore the Iron. Really glad I did as I can go DEEEP on squats and feel they do so much more overall then a plain leg press, plus with 135 I was able to do nice concentrated reps where I knew I wouldnt injure myself.
Although after that set of 20 and then pushing out 15 flat foot calf raises immediately I started seeing spots and was all light headed..... AWESOME.
Surprisingly had a geat pump in my bis after hitting them and after leaving the gym whereas previously when I hit legs and another body part its hard to even get a pump in that body part as all the blood is in my legs..... Cept have noticed that I can get a chest pump when squatting the first time I took Pslin for the betas.... that was kinda crazy.
Gonna check on the PR status of those leg curls and then hit the hay.
EDIT: Well it seems it IS a PR.... highest ever attempted before was 195.... that was done supersetting with calve raises though at the same weight for about 30-17 reps at the highest and lowest.... prob coulda done it before BUT didnt... soooooo PR right off the bat... lets see what we can do from here on out.
Looking solid. I'm finally going to do some stiff-leg deads and hit up the hams today. It's actually an anything-goes day because the gym is closed for Thanksigiving tomorrow, and I'm not sore anywhere today. Should be a good time in the gym, will probably be supersetting everything non-stop lol.
Seeing starts is pretty ; on squats when I go all-out I can sort of "smell" it. I think it's to do with the blood rushing away from my head, but it's how I know I'm pushing it. That or I'm lying on the floor afterwards lol.
Thanks poops, and one of the best logs, even if im a non responder, i trust everything you say, as i know your not somone to exagerate, but i so hope i respond like you have.
Hey Poops, sorry if I missed it, but how did you injure your back? Just curious.
How are you poops thought id drop by and see how you are?
Poops i'm curious if you have had any aggravation of your gyno while on prime or powerfull? I am running both right now, and both of my nips are getting real sensitive again and actually it feels like one of them has grown a little. I've stopped taking both to see what happens. Just thought I would see if you or anyone else has felt this at all. Thanks
PowerFull is supposed to be a prolactin inhibitor and not likely to create ANY sort of gyno flare up, opposite if anything in fact.
As for Prime, I cant rule it out honestly. My nips tend to get a lil puffy from time to time but DEF no pain or sensitivity and no growth at all, in fact I think the lumps smaller right now then its ever been. Hoping my next Epi run and a lil Letro run will eradicate whats left completely.
But with no MOA on Prime and speculation thats its mimicing androgens(maybe test) instead of boosting the and interacting with the receptor directly may mean it can effect the ER as well???? maybe cause an increase in aromatase? interact with aromatase to make a phyto estrogen?
I have no clue, this is all speculations but the long and short of it is I have had Zero problems thus far.
Have you run any AI's recently? whats your past couple months of supplementation look like? Some AI's can have a nasty rebound if not tapered.
well i just sent this to mullet. Based on the thread of renagade rows a while back, I have been on ralox and inhibit-e for about 5 weeks now. I have been dosing the ralox at 60 mg (1 pill) a day for 5 weeks now, and the inhibit-e was ed until week 4 now it is eod. The whole ralox combo is suppose to be 10 weeks. I was going to wait to throw in the prime and powerfull until I was done with this, but because it was non-hormonal I thought it wouldn't be a problem. I also dose 1 pill of b-6 a day as well. Only other supps I am on is oriange triad, a pre-workout supp and protein.
bye the way poops great log as usual and thanks for the help

Superset Delts (lateral and front single cable raises)
Altogther was a GREAT workout, cant believe how much I was smashin on the shoulder presses... got a lil carried away with 115, will try 105 next week instead, but Ive never held 90lbs in each hand and put them over my head before that many times, no even on a straight shoulder press machine have I repped 180 that easily.
Tris were just blasted today also even though it wasnt much different from last week, I think it was just right. And the superset at the end had me sweating like crazy and burned the hell outta my delts, which felt soooo good to feel like I was targeting them that well.
This will def stay as my new shoulder routine, just have to remember to get there early as I did today so I can run the whole gauntlet.
