Saturday Day 14 - morning weight 205.8
Paintballed from 9 - 4 that day....exhausting! Also did my carb up that day.
Sunday Day 15 - did not weigh in
Visited my parents because my b-day was that week. Also had sushi the night before which really messed my GI tract....starting to wonder if it was bad. Did not go to the gym......could not run without letting loose lol.
Monday Day 16 - morning weight 209.8
Still a tad under the weather today but will more than likely be doing arms tonight at the gym.

Hope you feel better soon!

Morning weight Day 17 - 207.0
Anyways, did arms last night. I always feel so much better lifting after having the carbs on the weekend. My body is starting to get pretty bitchy with this CKD diet.
Aggression has been up there along with libido.....those are the two biggest things I note.
I still feel that Blue Gene does not kick in until you are working out for about 15 minutes. I just don't feel it on my first sets...but after 4 sets.....I know it is doing its thing.....maybe just needs to wait for the blood to start pumpin!
Since the start of this stack, my bicep excercises have been steadily going up. I was able to do do curls with a straight bar last night of
35 x 15
85 x 10
105 x 10
115 x 10
125 x 6...........something went seriously wrong with this set. I was on number six going up and locked up but pulled it up and through. I got a bad sharp pain straight through my right pec. Put the weights down and pain continued for a good ten minutes and then went to a dull pain. Every time I pushed on the inside (towards center) of the pec, I would get a pins and needles feeling. I was still able to do two more tricep excercises (with pain) and my concentration curls plus cardio.
Woke up this morning and took a nice hot shower.....once the hot water hit the pec....pain pain pain. Guess I tore something? But on curls......I was suprised.....

no way, you'd be amazed what you pull when you're doing something too heavy. i hit a rep max with 430 on deadlifts the other day and decided to pull 495 for fun. definitely strained my right pec during that lift.
when you doing something with more weight than you're supposed to it becomes less isolation and more whole body.

Day 18 - Morning weight 205.8
Weight loss has been steady the passed week and a half, and it seems when I carb up, they sure come out quicker!
Last night I did not go to the gym due to the pec issue. Instead I put the box in my truck. I think I got a huge workout just removing the 8 bolts that hold down the back seats. WOO. Cranking that ratchet had me sweating for some reason. Forearms hurt afterwards....haha. Plus I took my blue gene 15 minutes prior to bolt removal...lol.
I have noticed that I am doing ok on about 7 hours of sleep, which is pretty good for me. I usually feel wiped unless I get 8+......which I rarely get. Also, when I get home from work, I am not napping......definite plus. Maybe once a week now when previously it was 3 or 4 days a week.
Wood woke me up. I felt like a friggin tent in my bed laying on my stomach. So yeah, libido is kicking good.
Tonight I am debating between back and deads, shoulders, or chest and legs.
I think I am aiming towards back and deads. Tomorrow will be off and then Friday night I can take my time doing chest and legs.
On a side note, UPS is really getting under my skin and probably cause this stack is making me angry..HAHA. but seriously, they won't leave a package at my door without signature...irritating but fine.....I am not driving 20 miles each way to UPS when I paid $15 for it to come to my door.
I rerouted it to my job on Monday. Well, Tuesday comes and it went to the central plant and then back to the wrong facility...UGH. I called and they said no worries, error on their end and will be fixed today.
Get to work, check status and wham......same thing again today. So I just called up and tried to maintain my composure saying that I was supposed to have this Monday or yesterday and they have screwed up twice. I don't give a damn if signature or not.....I want it left at the door.
So the facility it is at now calls me and asks what the issue is and I explain.....lady was pretty nasty and said she will try and find out where it is and hangs up without saying anything......crazy huh.
04-08-2009, 04:14 PM
04-09-2009, 08:13 AM
LOL You know....it never even left the facility for delivery yesterday.....I gave in and drove and got it.
Did a brief workout last night.....chest got rather sore again. Didn't want to over do it with back. Tonight I have arrangements with my parents....not going.
Morning weight 204.8.....wow. Lightest I have been in quite a long time. I just hope I am not losing too much muscle. I definitely know I lost some though sadly.
And I went down a full pound over night....and guess what.....tilapia for dinner...hahahaha. Something with fish and this stack I tell ya!
So overall down about 6 pounds since start. I didn't do any measurements at start, but I can tell you this for a fact. I needed a suit last month, and put on the pants of one I liked, and they wouldn't clasp. I tried it last night. Pants fit with a bit of room now.
So obviously some mid section fat has come off.....but I still have quite a bit there. Eh...I know it is the last to go. But by the time it is gone I am gonna be 160....LOL
Woke up in a pretty good mood, and as usual...libido is up. haha. I generally have been feeling pretty good in the morning...just overall awake and functional. It is nice.

I think the stims in blue up are helping with a steady weight loss. I am also doing a ckd diet on top of that, so I guess the two are working well together. I know my back and biceps are stronger and my chest is slowly getting stronger. My triceps actually look smaller, but it may be because of fat loss. With strength maintaining or going up, I would say muscle preservation is good, but I am sure I am still losing a bit here and there sadly.
Honestly I think a moderate carb diet would work better with the stack. Having practically no carbs during the week is taking a drain on me. I feel the blue gene kick in within the first 15 min at the gym and I can go, but my muscles are getting a bit sore quicker....which I think is because this is giving me the strength to put up the weight but the limited food to keep feeding them.

So I am a tad late on this now lol.
Day 19 was a morning weight of 204.8 - very brief workout with easter weekend
Day 20 - Sat - morning weight 203.8 - WOW no workout that day
Day 21 - Sun - did not weigh in morning but evening was 207ish right now. I ate some good food yesterday and today.
So within 3 weeks I dropped about 7 pounds which was very nice and had NOTICABLE strength increase in my bicep and chest routines. Deadlifts have been noted as going up as well.
Triceps have stayed stable along with my back and legs.
Going into my last full week I am going to continue some carbs tomorrow for workout and see how I feel. I feel that after 3 days of carbs in my body I will be able to give a review of how it is on a moderate carb diet. I will have carbs for breakfast and lunch tomorrow (heavy at lunch) and then back to no carbs for rest of the week.
I have looked in the mirror and notice more vascularity but also feel that I look smaller and less in shape...but I saw someone this weekend who I have not seen in about 5 weeks and he told my friend that I look 110x better than what I did and I should keep it up. Makes me feel good and helps me understand that it is just me reading into things.
I think the stim is working very well at keeping weight down and going down on a CKD diet.
Also, libido is phenomenal. And not sure if this is necessary to relay or not, but a lady friend of mine told me that my "volume" is the most she has ever seen....haha.
Anyways, I am very pleased to this point.

Day 22 Morning weight was 206.8
Workout after having a big carb lunch was much better for shoulders.
I have to say that I would highly recommend this stack with someone on a moderate carb diet.
While effect at maintaining strength and increase in certain muscle groups, I feel the effects are much more noticable while consuming carbs.
Anyways, back to no carbs today!
Day 23 morning weight is 204.8

Sorry for the delay. I had a death in the immediate family which has been occupying a lot of time.
My weight suprisingly has been as low as 203 and upwards of 206 most the time. I have been to the gym 3x over the passed 6 days. I have been taking in a low amount of carbs due to being unable to stick to my diet, especially while out of town.
As stated above, I feel that there is a big difference while taking carbs and utilizing the stack. I feel good lifting while on it and doing CKD and can say it gives me the energy I need when running low, but, while on carbs, I feel great and push a lot more.
A few days left and sadly over....but will take full advantage. I belive I missed two days while out of town taking the Blue Gene (but still took the blue up) so I will be able to log two days further.
Will be heading back into the gym tomorrow.

Sorry to hear you had family pass away bro! Hope all is well! Glad to have you back with us, i was starting to wonder where u went!

Morning weight 204.6
Decent arm workout. Libido is still very high. Biggest thing I have noticed, along with endurance (able to go between sets a lot quicker without feeling fatigued).
And blue gene definitely does take about 10 - 15 min of lifting to kick in. Maybe something to do with it working with increased blood flow?
I wish I would have taken a before bicep picture. I have noticed some change there above all. I actually can see more of it when I flex and it looks more pronounced.
Morning weight 203.8
Tonight is chest.
I have been cutting back on legs due to the amount i have been doing on the ARC machine. My legs were getting pretty sore on a daily basis.
04-23-2009, 12:44 PM
Last night was chest and triceps.
Weight was down on chest for some reason but I did a lot more reps than usual.
Maxed at 90 x 10 flat and 225 x 8 for incline.
Triceps maintained strength and I pounded out a good 4 exercises on them.
Did the arc machine for 25 min, 440 cals
Morning weight is 204.0
04-24-2009, 01:26 PM
Yesterday I did back and biceps. Again I can see that I have more endurace for sure....it kicked in quite noticably the 2nd week and has held up. Less rest time between sets and ease to work a muscle group without fatigue too quickly.
Morning weight today was 202.6
I have two days left of Blue Gene which I am going to save till workout days, which will be either today and Sunday or Sunday and Monday.
