  2. Alright. Up from my nap, got in my fourth meal, and have ridded myself of a nasty headache.

    I had a great time yesterday in Baton Rouge with two of my buddies. We left Ft. Walton Beach around 830am and got into BR at about 1245pm. We spent some time walking around LSU campus and tried to find their mascot, a tiger that they have inside some big outdoor cage; however, each student we asked kept telling us it was further and further so we quit the search, hopped in our car and went downtown to grab a bite to eat. I found a place online called Happy's Irish Pub, but when we got there it was just a watering hole so we went across the street to a place called The Roux House. I had a catfish poboy which was incredible. After that, we drove to the venue and got a front row parking spot and walked into the restaurant that the venue was connected to. I had some alligator for the first time and took a picture because I remember talking to some of you guys about 'gator meat. It was AMAZING. I also ordered a grilled chicken breast and steamed veggies, which turned out to be much better than when I make it. I honestly don't think I missed a meal the whole trip, nor do I believe I missed a drink. I think I had about 9 Scotches, 6 Guinness', and 2 Guinness mixed with cider and a German beer whose name I have forgotten.

    Flogging Molly, as usual, played an excellent show. It had some insane energy. The place was sold out, and I was balls-to-ass with other dudes. Half the reason I drink when I'm at these shows is to get over my phobia of germs. You pretty much have to at these small venues.

    A few songs into Flogging Molly's show there was a serious mosh pit going so I made my way to the back of it. Mosh pits piss me off. I don't understand them. I don't know why people can't just stand around and clap and jump a little maybe and enjoy the music. Why do people feel they need to push other folks around? Anyways, my buddy tells me he had to hold me back from beating the crap out of a couple guys. I don't remember that, but don't doubt it.

    As I said, that's the last time for a LOOONG time that I'll be drinking or smoking or anything like that. I was unhealthy enough for five people. I had a good time, but I'm ready to get back on the health waggon. My self-esteem and productivity levels are so much better and I just feel like a better person for it. So, it's all health from here on out. Like I used to be.

    We couldn't find a hotel room in BR because of all the hurricane victims that were staying at all the places. So we had to drive back home after the show. It sucked. We got back around 5am.

    Here's some photos of yesterday...

  6. awesome pictures man.

  7. I can't believe they're still using that backdrop...the album's been out forever, haha.

    ps - I knew you'd dig on the alligator. That stuff was amazing when I had it the 2 times I had the chance to.

    Training

    I'll list what I HAVE been doing during my training sessions, but some of the lifts may change, and I will let you know what those will be.

    My training schedule is somewhat elaborate. I have my entire body split up into two workouts, branching from those two splits I have a total of four workouts; a low-rep day (3-6reps), and a high-rep day (10-15reps) for each muscle group. I label my workouts as A1, B1, A2, and B2. Specifics:

    A1 (High-rep): Chest/Hams/Arms/Calves

    Chest: (Superset working sets)

    Cable X-over: 2 warmups, 4 working sets
    Incline DB Press: 4 working sets

    Hams:

    Kneeling Leg Curl: 2 warmups, 4 working
    Good mornings: 4 working

    Arms: (Superset all sets)

    Overhead tricep press: 2 warmup, 4 working
    Preacher curl: 2 warmup, 4 working

    Calves:

    Standing Calf Raise: 4 sets


    B1 (High rep): Quads/Delts/Back/Traps

    Quads:

    Leg extensions: 2 warmup, 4 working
    Squats: 2 warmup, 4 working

    Delts: (Superset working sets)

    DB Lateral Raises: 2 warmup, 4 working
    DB Reverse Grip Front Raises: 4 working

    Back/Rear delts: (Superset working sets)

    Seated Row: 2 warmup, 4 working
    Rear delt DB Flyes: 4 working

    DB Shurgs: 4 working


    A2 (Low rep): Chest/Hams/Arms/Calves

    Chest: Flat Bench BB Press- 2 warmup, 4 working

    Hams: Stiff Legged Deadlifts- 2 warmup, 4 working

    Arms (Superset all sets):
    Tricep Pressdown: 2 warmup, 4 working
    Seated DB Hammer Curl: 2 warmup, 4 working

    Calves: Seated Calf Raise- 4 working


    B2 (Low rep): Quads/Delts/Back/Traps

    Quads: Squats- 2 warmup, 4 working

    Delts: Seated DB Press - 2 warmup, 4working

    Back: Close Grip Pullup (weighted) - 2 warmup, 4 working

    Traps: Rack Shrugs- 4 working


    I lift three days a week, which means that each muscle group gets worked twice a week every other weeks. Example:

    Week 1
    Mon:A1
    Wed:B1
    Fri:A2

    Week2
    Mon:B2
    Wed:A1
    Fri:B1

    My cardio days are Tue/Thur, and I do one hour of cardio at moderate intensity. I usually do 30min/20/10 on Stairmill/Treadmill/Spin Bike. The treadmill is done at 15% incline and 3.3mph.


    I am currently on a break from lifting for a couple reasons. First of all, it's been ten weeks of hard training since my last week off, and I feel as though I need the recovery time. Secondly, I'd like to clear out anything that is still active in my body from the Anabolic Edge so that I can give Blue Gene a fair review.

    I will be commencing this log on Thursday, September 25th. I wanted to give everyone a heads up on the start of it so all my brosefs could sub, and to give any new chappies to get involved and motivate me in my training.

    Here's some of my pics starting from the beginning of the AE log up until this morning...

    I was suprised myself to see they were using that banner still. They used it at the last show I went to in March when the album was just released.

    I'll be dosing Blue Gene 20minutes before I eat Meal 1 tomorrow. I'm going to just take two tablets and see how I react unless either CTDeuce or Volcom wants to jump in and tell me it's not necessary to assess tolerance. If it's better I can take all 5tabs with my meal.

    I also picked up some Primaforce ZMA which I'll be taking before bed from now on. I totally forgot about the stuff, and I remember I had liked it a lot when I took it a long while back. I figured $15 for two months worth was a good deal. I'll mix that with 4-5g of GABA.

    Tomorrow is just a cardio day, BTW. I'll be typing up my numbers for my big lifts so I can assess Blue Gene's before and after effect on weights.

  12. I hate douchey bodybuilders.

    I just have to vent a little. I just saw some pictures of this guy that used to work out at my gym. Had that dumbass bodybuilder mentality. Thinks all other people in the gym that don't revolve their lives around muscle are subordinate. Struts around like he's tough **** but the guy ain't nothin'. Thinks he's huge but always wears pants to hide his legs that ain't ****.

    What really set me off is the shirt he was wearing. It's like those Red/White/Blue shirts that has a guy throwing a punch and it says "Full Contact Fighter" which I respect those guys. His shirt had the same look to it but the silhouette was of Arnold flexing. I just hate that ****. This dude is probably 15%bf, 215lbs, and I'd LOVE to set him up with a 140lb full contact fighter that would completely kick his ass.

    I took all 5 pills the first day and I did get a nauseous feeling for a while. Then again, I didn't take them with food...and it only happened on the first day. Maybe assessing is a good idea...but with food, you may not need to.

    Yup I say go with all 5. The 2 is just to assess tolerance, but on non-stim products I usually do recommended dose. Blue Gene can be taken with or without food, but as Deucester stated sometimes its better to take with a little somethin-somethin to avoid any stomach discomfort.

  16. The Deucester...lolz

  17. Cool. About to have breakfast. I'll take all five then.

  18. I took all 5 from beginning to end without any discomfort or gastrointestinal funky'ness, but I do have an iron stomach from all the wide variety of foods I eat.
    NSCA - CSCS

  19. Day 1

    Just did cardio today. Took all five tablets of Blue Gene with breakfast, hung around the house and watched Saved by the Bell for an hour or so, then hit the gym. Had an excellent cardio workout. Stairmill for twenty, stairstepper for twenty, and the bike for twenty. Sweat my bollocks off. It was great. Focus was dead on. I powered through it even though I didn't have my MP3 player. Cake workout. Focus was real good.

    I've never taken anything with Cissus in it, so I'm real excited to finally give this stuff a try, not to mention everything else that's in it.

    The weather is beautiful here in Ft. Walton Beach, and I'm thinking about taking out the hog.

    would have been awesome if you could have watched saved by the bell DURING cardio.

    good session tho man. im about to go do some fasted cardio myself.

    also, do you have any joint or tendon issues that might gauge how cissus working? or is the cissus in BG gearded for its anabolic effects?
    i guess part 2 of that question is for renegade or someone from controlled labs.

    nice strong start nonetheless

  21. I sometimes have squeeky joints and can always feel a little pain during squats; but other than that, no real huge issues. I'm sure I will be able to tell if the Cissus is affecting me though.

  22. Let the fun begin! Get it Cannon!

  24. Lookn good man!

  25. I'm thinking about dropping my Ground Beef meal. It seems like I've been trying to cram that one in. I don't think it's quite necessary. When I was waking up earlier it was fine, but I've been waking up around 9am lately, and it just seems like I don't need it anymore. So, back to six meals.
