    I was just mulling this point earlier when I saw the list of what didn't work/worked for Volcom and how my experiences were almost the opposite on a few things lol (He had no luck with Sesamin, CLA whereas I'm hooked on them now and he has seen good results on Prime while I had nothing).

    This brings me back to nutrigenomics; I really wish my university had this course
  7. Day 4


    0900 - HIIT Rollers:
    a. 4 min in 39x16 @ 65-70% HRmax @ 110 rpm
    b. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy in 39x15 (HR 75% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    c. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy in 39x14 (HR 75-80% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    d. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy in 39x13 (HR 80-85% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    e. 4 x 60 sec effort/30 sec easy in 39x12 (HR 90% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    f. 1 x 2 min effort in 39x11 (HR 90-95% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    g. 1 min in 39x16 @ 60 rpm (HR dropped back to 65% HRmax)
    h. 4 min in 39x16 @ 65% HRmax @ 110 rpm
    Started out as I do any HIIT Rollers session; pace good, legs ticking over, HR reasonable. First set of efforts did at a higher intensity than would normally, just to 'test' where I was at, since I felt like ****e on waking and not too much in the mood for anything. Legs spun, and HR did not rise much. Increased gear ratio for next set of efforts. HR still TOO low. Starting to sweat. Third set of efforts, at the peak gear ratio I've used so far for efforts. HR started getting up here, and legs started to feel the burn. NOT good enough; instead of making the 'finale' effort 1 minute, I did FOUR of them, all at an even HIGHER gear ratio. Legs and lungs were getting desperate for sure. HR didn't decrease much during the 30-second rest (down to ~80-85% HRmax). As if THAT wasn't enough (already the most intense HIIT session up to this point), I decided to add in one final effort, a bit longer at 2 minutes. Sweat was just dripping off during this, and I had to close my eyes and dig deep to keep going to the end. A minute of relief for my body; and then into the 4-minute 'cool-down' period. An excellent session. Absolutely STOKED with it. No issues with biceps tendons, knees, hips or lower back. LOVED it!!!

    0931 - Stretch 30 min.


    Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2230-0843 (waking at 0315, 0325, 0423, and 0625), so just over 10 hours sleep. VERY deep. Woke at 0315, intending to get up at 0325, but went straight back into a deep sleep. Dreams disturbing. Woke eventually at 0843 feeling extremely shattered, with a migraine so bad I felt like my head was being drilled...

    Mental Alertness/Focus: There.

    Energy: I was driven on the rollers this morning. Been a bit blah all day, with a small stomach ache. Was going to go for a run this evening, but don't really need it (ache and migraine NO excuse). Really quite fatigued, and ready for bed a couple of hours ago...

    Motivation: Definitely THERE.

    Mood/Aggression: A rollercoaster today. Something this morning triggered off some major aggression and frustration, which gave me the drive I needed for HIIT. Aside from that, feeling quite DRAINED...

    Stress: Moderate.

    Libido: None.

    Joints: Fine.

    Endurance: Excellent.

    Strength: N/A.

    Quality of Training: THAT is what I call really RAISING the bar. Damn, it's going to be tough to top THAT HIIT session (but I'll try!)

    Pump and Vascularity: Not much pump...Vascularity good, although not as strong as it has been lately...

    Muscle Hardness/Density: Arms. Glutes and legs.

    Body Composition and Look: Looking a little softer today. Holding a little water as well, it feels. Legs the only thing I'm ok with...

    Appetite: Had NONE all day. Had to FORCE myself to eat.

    Overall Sense of Feeling: Not the greatest. I feel like I've been run over by something. Eyes sore and red. Migraine I want to claw out of my head. Just generally feeling quite hammered and NOT liking it at all!...Tomorrow is time to take this frustration out in the gym!

  8. What's this? Terminators don't feel pain. Clearly that's the case with that HIIT session.

  10. Day 5


    1207 - Shoulders (1 min recovery between sets):
    1. BB BS 2 x 20
    2. Barbell Shoulder Press (BB SP) 4 x 12, 12, 10, 10
    3. DB LR 4 x 12, 12, 10, 10
    4. Incline Dumbbell Rear Raise (Inc. DB RR) 4 x 12, 12, 10, 10
    5. Plyometric Side-to-Side Box Jumps (PBJ) 2 x 40
    6. Treadmill (T/M) 5 min @ 4.36 min/km
    Henceforth, with Shoulders' day, since it is an area that I'm trying to gain on, I will be doing 2 x 20 of BB BS at the start of every session (doing 4 x 6-10 of Barbell Front Squats (BB FS) before Shoulders and Arms has worked well for me in the past in gaining muscle mass in those areas; time to change sets and reps)...BB BS were fine. Upped the weight from what I have been using in my high-rep Full-Body sessions, and body was fine with it...BB SP. Started off with peak weight. Had to drop the weight down for each successive set, to the third set, though, as right biceps tendon was irritated and extremely painful (it was before I even walked into the gym, but I tried to ignore it). Gritted teeth and did the best I could (but it wasn't really good enough)...DB LR. Better than last week. Right biceps tendon REALLY starting to give me hell from the third set on, when I INcreased the weight more...Been 4 weeks since I've done Inc. DB RR. And did ok. Same weight for each set...For the hell of it, finished with a couple of sets of PBJ. Feeling the impact in my shins, and shattered after each set, almost collapsing on the box afterwards...Just because I hadn't done any cardio, thought a brief 'run' after would be enough to tide me over until the run in the evening (that I planned on and never did)...It was an ok session...

    1949 - Stretch 20 min.


    Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2115-0723 (waking at 0151, 0315, and 0700), so ~10 hours sleep. Did not even hear my 0325 and 0423 alarms, I was so out of it; DAMNIT! Woke feeling quite shattered (migraine gone, though), and not really in the mood for anything...

    Mental Alertness/Focus: There. Man, trying to be 5 places at once can get draining...

    Energy: Not really had much today. Kind of been in the "I can't be bothered" mood for pretty much everything (someone told me that maybe that's my body's way of telling me I need a break, but I think it's just me being lazy). Rather guiltily decided not to do cardio this morning, because I planned on something this evening; but that didn't happen, and I'm beating myself up for almost the entire DAY. Grrr...

    Motivation: I should have whipped you for that meal tonight!

    Mood/Aggression: Mighty fcuked off with myself!...Have had quite a bit of aggression today. Eased for a while this afternoon (but only for the shortest of times). Now just stressed and want to beat something to a bloody pulp!

    Stress: High.

    Libido: Yes, well, I wish you WERE here for me to seduce!

    Joints: Fine.

    Endurance: No worries ever there.

    Strength: Maintaining.

    Quality of Training: Ok.

    Pump and Vascularity: Excellent pump in the gym in delts and legs...Vascularity quite strong in the gym. But even stronger this evening, especially after all the naughty carbohydrates (CHO)...

    Muscle Hardness/Density: Arms, for sure. Glutes and legs.

    Body Composition and Look: Look ok. Legs coming out nicely. Just want to get rid of my belly (DIET, girl; you KNOW that!!!) and the rest of the fat. There's so much fat on my body that it's just depressing!

    Appetite: Had none all day. Actually didn't even want the binge I had for dinner (then what the fcuk did you have it for then?!) From now on, I just want to eat only when and what I have to; it's the fastest way to getting the body I want (never mind supplements; they'll do ****e if my diet isn't right). CONQUER YOURSELF!!!

    Overall Sense of Feeling: BLAH...You had better be on track tomorrow, girl. OR ELSE!

  15. Day 6


    0918 - HIIT Rollers:
    a. 4 min in 39x16 @ 60-65% HRmax @ 110 rpm
    b. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy in 39x15 (HR 75% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    c. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy in 39x14 (HR 80% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    d. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy in 39x13 (HR 80% HRmax, rpm N/A)
    e. 1 min in 39x16 @ 118 rpm (HR dropped back to 65% HRmax)
    f. 3 min in 39x16 @ 65% HRmax @ 130 rpm
    Started out as usual. Feeling legs a little from yesterday's BB BS (interesting)..Increased intensity for first set of efforts. HR NOT increasing with intensity much. Legs feeling better with higher pace...Starting to get aggressive and angry. Increased intensity for second set of efforts. HR rising by only a few beats (GRRR). Legs feeling better...Spinning and sweating with the higher gear ratio for third set of efforts, trying to push HR higher. But it wouldn't. Legs REALLY feeling good now (WTF?)...Eased off for a minute. Although a lower gear, legs spinning faster than they ever would normally AFTER efforts. And even INcreasing the cadence to something that I wouldn't normally do for TOO long for the final 3 minutes did NOT increase HR. Weird; it SHOULD have gone up...A good session...

    0941 - Stretch 20 min.

    1042 - Back/Chest (1 min recovery between supersets):
    Superset A
    1. CG PU 4 x 12, 10, 8, 6
    2. Incline Dumbbell Bench Press (Inc. DB BP) 4 x 12, 10, 8, 6
    Superset B
    3. Barbell Bent Over Row (BB BOR) 4 x 6
    4. Flat Barbell Bench Press (Flat BB BP) 4 x 6
    Superset C
    5. Wide-Grip Lat Pull-Down (WG LPD) 4 x 6
    6. P/U (different positioning feet and hands during each set) 4 x 12
    Superset D
    7. CG SR 2 x 12
    8. Cable Crossovers (C C/O) 2 x 12
    A little change in how I've been doing Chest/Back...Superset A: Started out with CG PU. Each successive set was done to the amount of reps that I could do without having to 'cheat' any reps. Straight from CG PU to Inc. DB BP. Selected 21.5kg (i.e. 47.3) DB straight up, just to see how many reps I could do on the first set; when I got to 12 reps (same as CG PU) I stopped. Stayed at that weight for the last 3 sets, matching each set of CG PU rep for rep. Next week I will INcrease the weight, definitely...Superset B: BB BOR. Weight just less than peak weight I've been using for 4-6 reps. Managed first set well. And second, and third; actually felt like I could do MORE reps for these sets, but I only wanted 6 reps (which I did). So INcreased the weight for the last set, and that was about right. Flat BB BP stuck on weight that have been using. The first set I didn't feel right, and I got told later that I looked like I was struggling a little. As with the second and third sets of BB BOR, with Flat BB BP, also felt as if I could have done at LEAST 8 reps; and third set felt the easiest of them all. So for last set I increased the weight, and managed 6 reps easy. Another weight INcrease for next week. (Note that BB BOR and Flat BB BP weights are the same)...Superset C: Started out at peak weight on WG LPD. Increased the weight, and gritted teeth, and moved past the pain for the last two sets. P/U. Since doing them with feet on bench, hands on m/b has become 'easy', did the first set like that. Second challenged myself by doing them with feet on swissball (s/b), hands on m/b; that was harder, and definitely something to work UP to. Third set I did with feet on s/b, hands on ground; that was actually relatively easy. Last set did them with feet on bench, hands on s/b; that was harder than having hands on m/b, because the s/b move more and are less stable. So, will be doing P/U with feet on bench, hands on s/b from now on; and work up to doing them feet on s/b, hands on m/b...Superset D: CG SR done at peak weight, with definite digging for aggression in the last few reps of the last set. C C/O done at peak weight used, and also digging in the last set; but managing...During that session there were several times when I felt I was going to drop the weight or fall or something, but I 'steadied' myself and dug deep for the willpower and aggression that has been driving my sessions of late. VERY pleased with the session


    Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2215-0723 (waking at 0315, 0423, and 0630), so ~9 hours sleep. Absolutely shattered on waking, and easily asleep within seconds of alarms (and didn't even hear them all)! Sleep was deep and full of dreams.

    Mental Alertness/Focus: Been there today. I have been SWAMPED!

    Energy: There were a few moments in the gym where I felt like I was going to falter, but I was fine. Everything was great right up until after the pumpernickel (which didn't TASTE like pumpernickel) bagels, and then I was suddenly really fatigued, and I passed out for ~1 hour. Came to afterwards, and felt like going for a run. Trying NOT to OVERdo it, though (damn, it is HARD to NOT train when my head WANTS to be)!

    Motivation: I have a photoshoot next week, so I HAVE to look decent for that...

    Mood/Aggression: Quite aggressive (been a definite pattern the last few days) today; and really providing some ammunition under me during training. Aside from that, bit disappointed in self...

    Stress: HIGH.

    Libido: Close to hitting the red 'WARNING' button...

    Joints: Good.

    Endurance: Excellent.

    Strength: UP. Doing Body-Part splits has seen good strength increases in ALL areas.

    Quality of Training: Excellent. Loving it. Still. Just need to get some RUNS in, aye...

    Pump and Vascularity: Wicked pump in the gym; arms felt hard as after CG PU and P/U especially...Vascularity is still all knots and blue lines (and especially strong after CHO). Be interesting to see what it's like when leanER...

    Muscle Hardness/Density: Upper body AND lower body. REALLY noticing it in triceps and glutes today. Legs feeling harder in teh afternoon, too...

    Body Composition and Look: Just NOT happy with how I'm looking. It doesn't matter what anyone ELSE thinks; I need to be happy with it!

    Appetite: Again, none until I got in a mood in the evening. Thirsty as all afternoon, too...

    Overall Sense of Feeling: Hit the training HARDER. Make the diet FLAWLESS. I'm going to get BETTER! I HAVE to!

  21. Day 7


    1032 - 4.2km Run:
    Sunny and HOT already...Body just 'settled' into a pace. Could feel my right biceps tendon irritating a little, but not enough to cause any detriment. Right calf was also a little tender from the PBJ on Tuesday. First km done in 4.86 min, second barely faster in 4.85 min. Slowed for the third, right back to 4.97 min/km pace. Didn't feel like I was going to collapse at the end of it, but didn't feel like I had exhausted myself to the fullest, either; just felt fatigued overall.

    1059 - Stretch 22 min.


    Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2315-0913 (waking at 0315), so nearly 10 hours sleep. Deep. Dreaming. Woke pretty shattered, with bloodshot eyes, and very thirsty...

    Mental Alertness/Focus: There. Been SO stressed.

    Energy: Did my run. Was going to do a Full-Body resistance session afterwards, but decided to leave it and do tomorrow...Stress is quite draining on the energy. Lay out in the sun for 40 minutes in the later afternoon, but too hot to do much...Considered an evening run, but will probably leave it and let today be my 'recovery' day...

    Motivation: There.

    Mood/Aggression: VERY aggressive...

    Stress: VERY HIGH!

    Libido: Has been high...GONE now, though...

    Joints: Fine.

    Endurance: Good.

    Strength: N/A.

    Quality of Training: Average.

    Pump and Vascularity: No pump...Vascularity awesome...

    Muscle Hardness/Density: Arms. Glutes and legs.

    Body Composition and Look: GRRRR...

    Appetite: Not really had one. And NOT binged, either. Still very thirsty...

    Overall Sense of Feeling: What happens when the one person you should be able to talk to you CAN'T talk to???

  24. Hey, just going back to what you said about dosing NeoVar at night before bed after a "high carb day" what would you say is a high carb day? I'm doing 300-400g a day in carbs from mostly pasta.
    We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.

  25. Hang in there!
