    The Punishment Has Begun! "The One" Log!


    Yes... Punisher has started the punishment... Of himself... lol.

    There will be more to come as I get the time together. I just wanted to say that today was my first day starting the one.

    The good news is that I'm a "Super Responder" or whatever the hell the actual term is. Basically, I respond to supplements extremely fast and well. Even if it's just a bottle of Tribulus Extract, I will feel much different the same day I start taking it. I think this is due to my extremely fast metabolism.

    I took 3 pills of The One today at about 1PM. I woke up at 10AM to take them, but instead I turned my alarm clock off.. fell back asleep and dreamt that I took them.. no lie lol. When I woke up at 1PM I was like.. wtf, did I take those? Open the bottle and the seal is still on it lol.

    Anyway, on to the real news. I hit the gym today and figured I would get a light work out of all the muscle area's since I wasn't in for the past week. Just a warm up session that's all. I ended up blasting my chest, tri's, lats and traps completely. I had really good intra-set recovery and intensity. I did notice slightly more strength but I think that was simply because of my strong desire.

    I will take some before pics and get my stats up and start keeping a true log starting tomorrow. I plan to work out 5-6x a week... I'm currently unemployed lol.

    My goal is to gain 20-25lbs of lean mass in the next 2mo of The One Cycle and PCT.

    Ok so that is the intro and later on I will clean this up and get it into a better format, etc.

    Thanks for reading!

    Could also be from the one week rest. The rest might have been well timed... you're fully recovered now you can go all out for the cycle.

    The rest wasn't my choice actually... I've had a re-occuring sinus infection that started to give me cold/flu like symptoms at the start of last week so I had to go on anti-biotics for a few days and I started to take a lot of immune system stuff from the health food store.

    But I feel pretty much 100% health-wise now and definitely ready to do this cycle. If I don't have any issues for the next month... I'll definitely put on some serious muscle mass.

    The One kicks ASS!!!

    Sorry I haven't been keeping much of a "log". If someone could be kind enough to PM me a few exercises that people use to keep track of strength gains for a log, I would really appreciate it.

    Let me just give a quick update here:

    Saturday I started The One and NeoVar. First thing before eating breakfast and after I went to the bathroom I weighed myself; 152.8lbs. Went to the gym later that day and had an awesome work out.

    Sunday: Another awesome work out of my Bi's and Shoulders (Deltoids that is). I could really feel the ability to keep on pushing through the fatigue and pain. I didn't wake up until 2:30pm today. I slept 12hrs like a fricken rock.

    Monday: Weighed myself as usual, first thing in the morning after I went to the bathroom, wearing nothing but boxers; 154lbs! Too sore to work out so I opted for a 2+ mile hike through the woods at Bushkill Falls in the Pocono's. Was a really great cardio and even leg work out.

    Tuesday: I weighed myself today as usual and holy crap was I shocked! 156.2!!! That is 2.2lbs up from YESTERDAY!! Before breakfast, after taking a dump and with only boxers on... I can feel it and see it too. My bi's and tri's are definitely looking bigger.

    If this type of growth and weight gain continue for the next 26 days... Well, you get the picture. I'm super psyched and can't wait to get in to the gym today. Only thing I am really worried about is injuring myself. I have this animal inside me that wants to keep pushing and I have to remind myself not to go too far.

    I haven't really noticed my appetite growing, which is good, because I'm all ready the type of person that eats a full plate and is looking to snack again 3hrs later. I've noticed my aggression is up a bit, but nothing absurd or like uncontrollable anger lol. My sexual drive is up quite a bit, which sort of sucks since I don't have any one to share it with right now haha. I tend to sleep much much deeper than before I started the cycle. I also wake up with way more energy. I'm usually a very slow starter when I wake up but I just jump out of bed now.

    So far I'm loving The One. It just makes you grow and work out like crazy. I lay in bed at night and visualize working out, it's stupid insane lol.

    It is going interestingly. My first few days I had immediate weight gains (1lb every day) but for the past few days now, my weight gains have been stagnant. This could be due to losing some fat as well. It seems that the pudginess in my stomach is going down, I could almost see some definition today. I do look and feel slightly bigger. I haven't noticed any side effects either... I still have the regular amount of DOMS, which sucks... Tomorrow will be a full week on and I'm hoping that things only get more intense in the weeks to follow.

    Saturday 6/13: It has been exactly one week since I started The One. Things are going pretty well. I got to the gym/worked out (I include my hike on Monday as working out) a total of 5x, including today's work out. Today, like last Saturday, I worked my bi's, tri's, a little bit of the upper chest, shoulders and a bit of the traps. I had an incredible work out today, infact I've never actually felt like this before. It was like I was at the edge of falling apart but something kept me going and kept pushing me. It was really incredible and to be honest almost addictive. I just felt like I could have kept going for hours.

    Because of the faster intra-set recovery time, I am able to work my muscles harder and get the same amount of training done in less time. I have more focus during training as well.

    My current weight as of this morning is 158lbs. When I started last Saturday, I was 152. I put on roughly 6lbs in one week and it definitely is not fat. I know this because for me, fat really only accumulates in my mid-section, and that area has not changed. Infact, I have been going to the bathroom on a more regular schedule, typically 3x a day now.

    I've noticed no negative side effects other than 1 small zit which I got on my chin last Monday.

    Today, before I hit the gym, I took Guarana Seed Extract. Since my pre-existing sleep issues are still hounding me, I find that I'm tired through the day. The Guarana really helped pick me up and increased my workout intensity. I'm not a big fan of "energy drinks" because of all the sugar and other crap.

    So the basic report is that I'm doing good, definitely seeing and feeling gains in strength and mass and not having any side effects yet, and if I could get my sleep issues resolved I think I would be doing even better!

    Very positive so far

    The recovery on the ONE is awesome indeed. Glad your enjoying your run bud.

    I had a pretty sweet workout on Saturday and I noticed on Sunday that I wasn't sore AT ALL... So I'm really hoping that maybe the DOMS is going away.

    I've been toughing through it as well, except on the days when it's really bad or over a lot of muscles. I have some soreness up in my traps and a bit in the arms but whatever.. Maybe I'll do legs today or something.

    I for some reason had it always in my elbows. I feel like the worst place to have it (as most workouts always use your arms in some way). The leg days really helped with taking a day (somewhat) off from my arms.

    I get it in the elbows too.. Like just above them in the thickest part of the forearm. It's murder because I can barely straighten my arm out all the way. Have to move it real slow.

    Man I know I felt like I had all my strength but my elbows hurt so I couldn't move up faster (Also not having a good workout partner, didn't help much to). Maybe it was just me but if I had a good couple more carbs and protein before my workout it helped, but it also could all have been in my head.

    I am noticing some things and wondering if any one else noticed them... While at the gym today, I was getting some stabbing pains in the very top of my head, over the left side. I'm also prone to palpitations, but they are typically few and far between... But today I was getting quite a few (Specially on the seated ab crunch, when I would come up and stretch my torso out before I flex'd back down). My heart rate was normal, about a 120-125BPM while working out... When I got home I took my BP right away and it was 130 over 65... My normal resting BP is around 120/60ish... I thought maybe it was high blood pressure, but doesn't seem to be that unless it dropped a lot in the 5min it took me to get home. My heart rate was still at 122 though.. so I doubt it.

    I've started taking Liver Force now as well as Milk Thystle and I've completely cut alcohol out. I had a beer a few days ago and a few days before that I had a rum n coke and a beer. Decided that I should really cut all of that stuff out and most likely won't really return to drinking even after I'm done with my cycle.

    I woke up today feeling pretty good and energetic... Haven't felt like that in quite a few days. Drank a LOT of water yesterday and I'm going to do the same today. I remember last year when I started working out... I was drinking like a gallon of water a day and felt really ****in good all the time. I'm trying to get back to that type of H20 consumption again. It really seems to do my body good.

    As of now, I'm a 160lbs... so up 8lbs in the 15 days that I've been using The One. I'd say a conservative number of 6lbs is muscle gain.

    One work out question I do have is about bench pressing. My bench has always been pretty ****ty. I can rep good form incline fly's with 25lb dumbells with out too much trouble. I can easily do 3x10 dips of my own body weight... and on the seated tricep extension I can do 3x10 at a 170lbs with out much trouble... Yet, I have issues benching 135lbs (bar weight + 2 45lb weights). I should be benching well over that. Once my arms start to straighten out a bit I can shove the bar up and I've been working on my chest a lot. So anyway, the question is, is there something I am doing wrong? Is there any specific work outs I should do to help my bench or is the key to a good bench just practice? I don't do it very often so maybe that's just the issue?

    Thanks!

    Just because you are strong some chest exercises doesn't mean you will be strong in ALL of them. Using barbells and dumbbells also can make a difference in weights used.

    As for your barbell bench press; yes, if you're not doing them often, then you canNOT expect great strength gains there. And if you're not working in the strength rep range (5-8) reps, then although you may get stronger, you won't get that much stronger.

    I'd suggest doing barbell bench press for 4 x 5-8 EVERY week as the first exercise on your Chest day.

    Sorry I haven't been keeping this up to date... Been busy with other stuff and not really much to report. I'm up to 162 now... Haven't been putting on as much weight as I thought I would, but I've definitely put on muscle, size and strength. I've heard from several people including my chiropractor and family members that I look bigger over all and that my arms are getting beefy (They don't know I am taking anything either). I get serious pumps at the gym now... My bi's/tri's get so fricken huge and I can really work them out super hard with out fatiguing and quick intra-set recovery. Infact, I've noticed that my first set is my weakest, second set gets better.. then by the third set I'm doing more reps than the first two at the same weight and I can continue this in to a 4th set! Doesn't matter if it is a dumbbell curl or a bench press or whatever...

    I wish I could get pics up here but I have to get 50 posts first... I guess I need to start post-whoring lol.

    As for side effects... Nothing really but a few zits around my body. I found out what was causing my issues last week, the heart palpitations and what not... It was from the Guarana Extract I was taking. Every time I take that stuff now, just 1 pill, I feel weird all day. After I stopped taking it, I had no more issues.

    Anywho, this is my last week of the cycle... I'm ending I think next Sunday or Monday actually. Working really hard to put on at least 3 more lbs, but would like 4 or 5 more. My diet hasn't been the best by any means, but I'm not really too worried about that... With my weight right now, I just want to put more on, period. The other night I ate an entire pizza from pizza hut lol... But last night I had a big plate of pot roast. Basically I eat a lot of meat, a lot of animal protein.

    One last thing, you have to becareful using this stuff because you can easily hurt yourself. I was hitting the gym up damn near every day and really working myself pretty hard. This resulted in my left shoulder up through my left trap getting really sore and yesterday I came real close to screwin that area up bad. I decided to just take like 2 days off from working anything upper body and using ice/heat pads on that area.

    I think this is where someone posts the video of the benchpress "Well maybe you just don't know how to ****ing bench...." in his quotes.

    Honestly, you should probably take a look at your form. OR, find someone who looks competent enough at your gym and have them review your form. I don't mean anything offensive but it seems that you should be able to put up that weight. You might be doing something wrong.

    Good job so far mang!

    I may be doing something wrong in my form. In the past week I've been working on my bench and it is getting better. I noticed that I was pushing the bar up and out towards my feet and now I bench pushing up and slight back towards my head... Basically keeping the motion cleaner. I might just go to the gym with my friend sometime this week. He benches over 300 and has been doing it for quite a while, so I can have him review my technique.

    From the sounds of it it sounds like you might not have been benching consistently in the past. I started out the same way (as does everyone?) where I couldn't bench jack **** and didn't even want to do it. However, after I got over myself and the "embarrassment" (in my own head) of putting 25's on the bar, my bench progressed quickly. The beginning phase moves up fast if you stick with it. Like someone said, make it your first chest exercise on those days and you'll see results, but do it consistently.

    You're right, I wasn't doing it consistently. I would do it for 2 or 3 weeks and then stop. Even though I noticed visible gains in muscle size from benching... I'm a retard lol. But I'm over that embarrassment like you said. I do the weight that I can bring all the way down to my chest and push all the way back up and do it at least 4x. The past week I've been using 35lb plates because I can comfortably bring it all the way down, get at least 8 reps out and do 4+ sets and most importantly, it isn't so heavy that I'm straining all the time... 35lb plates are a bit light for me but I can really focus on which muscle groups I am using and keeping the proper form.

    I am up 3 more lbs. to 165lbs. I started at 152... I'm ending my cycle on Sunday I think... That is if the rest of my PCT shows up this week. I'm hoping to squeeze out another 1 or 2lbs! Would be nice if I end at 167... that would be 15lbs in 30 days. My diet hasn't been the best, no doubt... I pretty much just eat whatever. Not really concerned about getting cut, etc right now. Just want to put the weight on and get stronger and stronger I have gotten. I am planning to put on another 5-7lbs during my month of PCT as well. Soon I will be able to post pics!!

    I forgot to mention my bench press progress. I've been working on technique lately and was benching today and I think I'm really getting it down. I was doing 2 45lb plates with out too much trouble. I'm realizing just how screwed up I was doing it before lol. Before, I would never really feel it in my chest when I would bench... Now I'm really feeling the use of my chest.

    Sounds good man. I just started my cycle with The One last Friday and I have gained 3 pounds. I like it so far.

    Mikey, I gained the most weight in the first week. Like 4lbs in the first week... Then it sorta slowed down from there and came in spurts. I'm really trying to get at least 2 more pounds on before the end of the cycle. All the weight I have put on is lean mass too. By the 2nd to 3rd week I was hitting the gym 6 days a week. I just really got into it and I worked very hard. Best of luck to you!

    Here is how my PCT is shaping up, supplement wise.

    2nd Gear
    Horny Goat Weed
    Milk Thistle Powder
    SecretaGain
    Testabolan V2

    I get enough Creatine and Glutamine in my Cytosport Cytogainer calorie shakes, so I've decided not to add any extra. I'm sure I will add some extra supplements in, like L-Carnitine, etc, stuff like that. If I can stack on another 5-7lbs during PCT, I'd be super happy. Would be nice to get 3-5lb of lean muscle and another 5-7lbs of mass (fat) on top of that. I can cut later on when I get my weight closer to my target.

    Ugh, man I just need another 20 posts till I can put my pics up!! DAMN IT!! lol

    It's almost the end of my first week and I'm up 5 lbs., definately all lean mass. I'm going to the gym four days a week, but I'm doing volume style training so any more than I'm doing would probably be too much; I may add in a day where I work out what I feel is lagging.

    As far as eating, I've been doing like you, just eating when I can and as best as I can but not being really strict. It's working so far though. I'll probably write up a review at the end of the cycle and let you guys know how it ended up working out for me. I hope to have the success you did with it.

    Due to shipping taking for-****ing-ever, I won't be starting my PCT till Tuesday. So I'll be on The One for just over a month at 3x a day. I did recently experiment with 4 pills a day... But I ended up getting quite a lot of body aches and some joint pains so I went back to 3 pills. I've been lifting heavy for the past month though and I can really feel my body starting to get beat down. My left trap/shoulder region is all messed up. Can't put too much weight on it for too long before it starts to ache. I've decided for the next week to just do light weight with high reps. My muscles could definitely use the break and be trained in a different way now.

    Besides all of that... The One got me ****ing ripped. I know that there is still more results from my workouts and in due time they will slowly start to show up. Using The One was definitely an excellent way to jump start my body again and I think the cost of everything to the outcome was well worth it.

    I'll post my final thoughts/results on Tuesday/Wednesday and then start a new post to document my progress with my PCT.

    Glad that you are enjoying your time on The ONE and that you are getting back to where you want to be.

    Look forward to your final thoughts on The ONE.

    BTW, you can keep posting your PCT updates in this thread (no need to start another one).

    So I started my PCT today. Yesterday was my last day on The One. I'm glad really... I wasn't feeling The One doing much any more. So I started 2nd Gear today... now if Fedex will stop being so damn slow and get the rest of my PCT stuff to me... damn them. It's scheduled to be delivered today, they are just taking their sweet time getting to my house.
