    I've never been lower then 12%, I think I'd need lipo to get any lower. I'm not sure where I am at the moment. I'm lean enough to see upper abs and serratus, but the lower abs are MIA to the fullest. I can respectfully wear underarmour, which usually tells me where I'm at. I don't really get too concerned about bf% this time of year, only during late spring and into the summer do I really start focusing on being lean as possible.

    Ugh, I wish I was the same way . . . but no, I get overly conscious of any weight/water/fat gain. I wish I could - with a clean conscience - eat the normal amount of foods around the HOlidays as I have been all my life (excluding the past couple of years) .. Can not stand it ! As a result, i find myself @ the same weight I did a year ago . .

I wonder if some of these haters put as much effort into their PRIME runs as they did into their denouncing it afterwards??!! I'd hate to be so shallow as to train like shit and eat like shit and then blame a compound for my lack of results. Sorry V. You said you didn't want ranting up in here. Well, this was just venting. LOL Go get 'em here big V!!!
    Yeah, great results do NOT come from magic

    I'm glad to have you along, DF.

    To my utter surprise, I did not engorge myself during Thanksgiving dinner. I think I actually ate less then I normally do. However, I did have two slices of pumpkin pie (one normal, one 1/2 slice) and a 1/4 helping of cake.

    I only had ONE, medium helping plate of Thanksgiving Dinner. ONE! and I felt satiated, strange....

  17. Pre-Prime; Traps pre-exhaust Delts workout


    I have good/bad news. These pre-Prime logged workouts were meant to be a gauge of current strength, in order to contrast against Prime cycle gains. The good/bad news is that this morning was one of my strongest performing trap/delt workouts I've had all season, so the bar has been set pretty high.

    One of the main reasons I suspect for these gains are the newly established neuromuscular adaptions. I've been "transitioning" from high volume/moderate intensity, to high intensity/moderate volume for a few weeks now and I believe that transition is over. Most likely, I've established the strength catalyst adaptions, such as increased recruitment of muscle fibers per motor unit and coordinated motor firing (increased neuron firing, decreased antagonist contraction are a strength/power thing, but motor units deal primarily with strength alone; and increased release of calcium of the T-tubles blah blah blah, basic premise, a lot of thingy's happen to get you more stronger).

    Enough with the BS'ing, on with the show.

    Barbell Shrugs
    225lbs x 15 reps
    315lbs x 12 reps
    375lbs x 10 reps
    405lbs x 8 reps

    Behind The Neck, Smith Barbell Shrugs
    315lbs x 10 reps
    375lbs x 10 reps
    405lbs x 8 reps

    Db Shrugs
    125lbs Db's x 15 reps
    125lbs Db's x 12 reps
    125lbs Db's x 12 reps
    125lbs Db's x 12 reps

    Seated Shrugs
    270lbs x 10 reps
    270lbs x 8 reps
    270lbs x 8 reps

    Behind The Neck Shoulder Press
    225lbs x 10 reps
    225lbs x 8 reps
    225lbs x 6 reps

    Hammer Shoulder Press
    180lbs x 10 reps
    180lbs x 8 reps
    180lbs x 6 reps

    Seated, Cable Shoulder Press
    100lbs x 15 reps
    120lbs x 12 reps
    140lbs x 10 reps

    I really wanted to finish off with a shoulder isolated movement, such as lateral raises, but I was done. I haven't gone this heavy on "behind the neck" shoulder presses, EVER, and definitely not with this much success. I frequent 225 with military presses, not behind the neck.

    Pro's and Con's about the trap pre-exhaust. I wasn't in the mood to lift this morning, I'll be honest. I played with the idea of either biceps, back, or shoulders and none of them seemed appealing, so I thought I'd do a pseudo-workout and hit all traps, which isn't that out of the ordinary for me, I'm a fan of traps and forearms like no other, oddly so.

    You can't help but get the testosterone flowing when you throw around 405lbs (ESPECIALLY with deads!), but shrugs will do it too. So my energy went up, motivation shot up, and innovation awakened. Furthermore, following my shrugs, my shoulders were so oiled up and primed for presses and after having hundreds and hundreds of pounds bearing down on your axial skeleton, seated presses with half the weight felt like a walk in the park.

    Con, the delts don't get all the attention they deserve due to limited energy, but I don't always train traps first, so its alright this time.

  18. jesus man. first workout and youve already out done yourself. good luck topping this one

  19. Doesn't that almost sorta piss you off when you aren't in the mood to lift yet you totally crush everything?

    ...even worse is when you are totally amped to lift and then your strength ends up being sub-par.

    About the dosing, it's a personal preference thing. We still don't know how PRIME works, but I think running it a 9caps/day, 7 days/week would be the best way, but it's your call. Good luck

    yes personal indeed, i ran 6 aday for 7 days stright and had lable like results
    in my new log i will be dosing 9 aday for a week to induce the 4th week type results much quicker

    Well, it's not my first workout (with PRIME) yet. These are pre-Prime comparisons. Good workout, nonetheless.

    The latter bugs me the most, the first is usually a pleasant surprise. My flat bench was subpar for the longest time, prior to my week long rest and that'll break your spirits. I'm good now.

  23. If I end up buying this crap, I'm going all-out and dosing it IC style: No less than 12 caps per day.

    Of course stacked with an AI.

  24. No one should buy crap!

    I would like to RSVP that 12 cap IC dosing if it goes down.

    If you end up having good results, I can safely say that I will probably do it. Are there really any negative sides that would be associated with a high dose like that?

  28. extreme muscle mass and a possibility of pushing your body beyond what it should be capable of and hurting a tendon or muscle.... serious.

    I would seriously invest in some cissus for that run.

    severe change in wallet/checking account volume . .

    Haha. Ya, that's why I'm watching Volc's log, first. If it's worth it, I'll do it, but for a 30 day run @ $165, it better be pretty freaking amazing.
