    AE's Gaining Gold and Keeping the Joints working (sponsored)


    Let me first thank RR and Controlled Labs as well as CC and Forged for this opportunity. What a wonderful day it has been. I returned home from work getting ready to change and head to the gym, and I was greeted with 2 packages from my friend the UPS man. 1 CL's golden gains and one joint supplement by forged. It is friggin Christmas.

    Here is a bit about me:
    33 years old, 6' 208lbs. Been on a lean bulk the last month and a half, and up about 7-9lbs depending on the water

    Current supplements (changed a bit recently for $$$ reasons):
    ATW WPI CPBC
    Orange Triad
    IBE Reverse
    White Flood
    Bulk Fish Oil

    About 3 weeks ago, decided I wanted to go back to powerlifting and am scheduled to compete again in October, so I changed the split a great deal, and have seen phenomenal results thus far.

    Split
    Sunday: Heavy chest/Tri's
    Monday: Back
    Tuesday: off
    Wednesday: Upper Chest
    Thursday: Back (focus on deads)
    Friday: Shoulders
    Saturday: Legs

    Also, 7 days a week I am at the gym very early in the am (prior to 5am) for cardio. Right now it has been approximately 40 minutes of reclined bike as the treadmill has screwed up an already bad ankle.

    So here is how today went

    Seated Military press (10 sets) 255lbs 2 reps
    BTN press (2 sets) 175lbs 5 reps
    Reverse peck deck (12 sets) 3 giant sets 4 weights each 90,75,60,45lbs
    BTB BB shrugs (8 sets) 405lbs 5 reps
    Incline Bench leaning laterals (5 sets) 20lbs

    Half way through the workout I started drinking the GG. Interesting flavor, not so much Apple Pie IMO, more fruity. Taste is fine, and mixes fairly easily. The only issue from day 1 was you can tell that there is an oat content. It was a tad grainy, however, if you have ever used oats, than no real surprises there.

    Really looking forward to seeing how both of these together work in. Tomorrow with legs will be an interesting challenge. Will be posting pics in a few minutes as well, as I am curious how this works with the lean bulk.

    Just an update from the morning. Hit the bike at an incline of 6% for 40 minutes. Feels much better on the bike than treadmill, as it allows me to walk without a limp afterward. Will be heading back this afternoon for legs

    A bit late of a response but here was leg day

    Back Squats 10 sets: 2 sets @ 315
    Front Squats 5 sets: 155lbs
    Leg Press 5 sets: 495lbs

    Seated calf raises 7 sets: 2 45's 25 reps per set
    Standing calf raises 10 sets: 110, 80, 50lbs in giant set form

    Felt good, and started with the Golden Gains 3/4 way through the workout. Felt good and not as fatigued

    thanks man, and thanks for the GG.

    HEre was todays Chest/Tris day

    Flat BP (10 sets) 335lbs 2 reps
    Incline BP (5 sets) 295lbs 2 reps
    Floor Press (8 sets) 300lbs 1 rep (i was dying at this point)

    Reverse grip 2 hand pulldowns (5 sets) 110lbs
    2arm db extensions (5 sets) 85lbs
    CG BP (5 sets) 255lbs 3 reps

    I actually used a sample of BSN's volumaize intra workout, which pushed the GG totally post. Saw nothing from volumaize btw.

    Some thoughts
    Ankle is still struggling, however tenderness in my right elbowis not as bad so maybe the Forged is working. Also, on the GG front, my recovery seems pretty good, not sore from leg day at all

    ok, somewhat abbreviated today as had meetings after work which just suck

    hit the bike for 40 minutes early this am, god mondy mornings suck

    got back to the gym around 4:30 for back

    BB Rows (8 sets) 245lbs 5 reps
    Wide grip chins (5 sets) bw
    HS tbar rows (6 sets) 3 45's
    BTN NG pulldowns (5 sets) 195lbs
    Hyperextensions (5 sets) 45lbs plate

    Felt good, however here in Pa we are hitting 92 degrees, and the gym didnt have the air on. Whoa!!!

    Overall feeling pretty good. No major joint issues, although my ankle certainly likes to let me know it is there.

    In terms of GG, started drinking 3/4 of the way through the workout, and felt good with it. The flavor is starting to work for me now. Not gonna lie, the first day the flavor was a tad disappointing.

    Just a little aside, it has been 5 days with GG and I am noticing some stomach discomfort, and greater frequency running to the toilet. In fact, just had to (and I mean had to) use immodium. Might be the Concentrate.

    Chest and Bi's


    Had a ral nice workout today, coupled with a little incline pr

    Incline BP (10 sets) 315lbs 3 reps
    Flat BP (8 sets) 315lbs 2 reps (I was spent)
    Incline flys (5 sets) 75lbs

    Hammer curls (5 sets) 55lbs
    BB curls (5 sets) 115lbs
    Hero curls (5 sets) 60lbs

    Felt very good. In terms of joint issues, feel great outside of the ankle, which is still tender and a tad unreliable. Drank GG totally post workout. All things are a go there, if I could just get my stomach to tolerate it

    Just got back from a a back workout where I should have gotten a DL pr but lost focus and blew it

    DL (10 sets) missed 450 2x however blew up 425 for an easy 2
    Weighted chins (5 sets) 35-45lbs
    1arm cable rows (5 sets) 100lbs
    BTN pull downs (5 sets) 190lbs
    2arm seated cable rows (5 sets) 225lbs

    Felt great, just lost focus, also forgot my ipod as I was rushing from a meeting at work and it totally threw me off. Son of a @#$%^

    Feel great otherwise, still slight stomach discomfort from GG, however immodium is a sweet thing

    Leg day


    Damn do I hate leg day, but feeling good afterward. It seems that 1. squatting in my wrestling shoes seemed to give more support, 2. the joint support is qorking well, and 3. my ankle as a result of the previous 2 seems to be better (somewhat)

    Quads
    Back squats (10 sets) 365lbs 3 reps (deep ones)
    Front Squats (5 sets) 175lbs 5 reps
    Leg press (5 sets) 495lbs

    Hams
    Stiff leg DL (5 sets) 185lbs
    Seated leg curls (5 sets) 130lbs (favorite ham exercise)

    Calves
    Seated calf raises (5 sets)
    Leg press machine calf ext. (5 sets) 495lbs

    Felt strong throughout. Am sipping GG right now. I have noticed that I am staying fairly strong throughout the workouts, not fatiguing as easily.

    got back from chest day, got fatigued early in the workout which is not typical for me

    Flat BP (10 sets) 355 2 reps (struggled)
    Incline BP (8 sets) 305 2 reps
    Floor Press (8 sets) 275 5 reps

    Tri's
    Close grip BP (5 sets) 225lbs 10 reps
    2arm reverse pulldowns (5 sets) 120lbs
    2arm db extensions (5 sets) 90lbs

    I am completely wiped out, in fact, I feel like I could take a nap. Put up decent #'s, however not too sure if fatigue was holding me back (most likely)

    Barn doors (5 sets) 110lbs
    Rack pulls (6 sets) 515lbs

    alright, just a quick update. I was finally able to get on the treadmill this am, as my ankle has felt much, much better. Did 36 minutes at 15% incline and 4.5mph. A nice rapid walk, which gave a good sweat. Joint support, I love you

    Regarding GG, I have 3 more days left, after which I will put up a final, in depth review of the product.

    Will post again after upper chest today

    Ok just got back a bit ago from chest and bi's. Feeling good but tired.

    Incline BP (10 sets) 325lbs 2 reps
    Flat BP (5 sets) 315lbs 4 reps
    Leaning BW dips (5 sets)

    BB Curls (5 sets) 115lbs 6 reps
    Hammer curls (5 sets) 55lbs
    Machine preacher hammers (5 sets) 120lbs

    Felt good and strong, and was thrilled with 325 on the incline, that is huge for me.

    The GGS was sipped post workout, and what looks like 2 more days left.

    Leaning BW dips (5 sets)

    BB Curls (5 sets) 115lbs 6 reps
    Hammer curls (5 sets) 55lbs
    Machine preacher hammers (5 sets) 120lbs

    Felt good and strong, and was thrilled with 325 on the incline, that is huge for me.

    The GGS was sipped post workout, and what looks like 2 more days left.
    Nice numbers bro. 325 incline is TIGHT!!

    thanks man, I was thrilled. the only thing that sucks is that my flat is not very far ahead of my incline, I just always feel more comfortable on the incline, and my competition in october doesnt ask for incline, damn it

    yep in oct, working my butt off on flat, but the gains are all incline. I was happy though, as I still only weigh in around 206-208

    so does the 8sets of 2-3 reps help that much on size or is it only strength increases?

    I am noticing more with strength, however, the size issue seems to be more so with a bit of thickness. Not visibly noticeable, but more in feel of clothes if that makes sense

    Here is my back day, and more red badge of courage on my left shin

    DL (10 sets) 450 for an easy 1
    Power Cleans (5 sets) 135 (first time doing this in years)
    BB Rows (5 sets) 225lbs
    BTN Neutral grip pulldowns (5 sets) 210lbs

    Stayed strong throughout, and felt great. Really took my time on deads, and kept saying over and over to tuck my a$$ (sounds so wrong). Also, my work with my grip is successful as well as I used no straps or hooks. Stayed light on power cleans as I am really trying to work my form, and not do too much right away.

    1 more day of GGS as well, but feeling good across the board. I will have a final review tomorrow night of GGS.

    I agree. When i was younger, all i cared about was benching and curling,lol. Deads are now my favorite lift, hence my name. Squatting is my close second, then push press. I am not a big fan of the bench, but that could be because its my weak point (315x2).
