  1. Days 7-8:
    These past 2 days have been terrible. With the long weekend, throwing off my workouts with unannounced shorten hours and closing left me gymless and unable to do much cept cardio. Sunday Was trashed, and yesterday monday was just a lot of stretching, 3 mile run in 28:23 and 5 sets of 20 pushups. I limited my diet because I wasn't in the gym.
    Today I hope to change that around, getting in a good hard workout.
    Todays update to probably come tomorrow morning, But ill try and get it in tonight.


  2. Day 9
    So day 9 was yesterday. First thing was I did wake up feeling pretty crappy. Tired, stiff, and just in a crappy mood. But got class over with, and started training for the day which included practice, then lifting. As far as my lift went. It turned my entire day around. Which lead me to believe the reason for my crappy night, and morning was due to the fact I was out of te gym for an extended period of time (about 3 days) But my lift felt awesome and put me right back on track.

    Lift chest/tri
    flat bench 185x5 185x5 185x5 185x5 185x5
    incline bench 155x5 155x5 155x5 155x5 155x5
    Decline dumb bench 75x5 75x5 75x5 75x5 75x5
    cable fly 70x5 70x5 70x5 70x5 70x5
    cable fly 30x15 30x15 30x15 30x15 30x15
    close grip bench 125x5 125x5 125x5 125x5 125x5
    overhead tri ext 65x6 65x6 65x6

    Numbers
    weight=202.0
    cals3150
    fat=75
    carbs=338
    protien=195

    so my cals are finally getting to par, and my carbs where pretty high. This probably came from the Mass XXX i had post workout (containing 123 carbs per scoop) stil my protien is low, which i'm taking steps today to add more lean meats, and protien shakes into the mix to get that number up.

    so an outline of everything
    mood=kinda up and down but again could be related to time off in gym
    agression= this is increasing. In the gym, towards some other people out of the gym, kinda a alpha male mentalitly with an extra kick. No rage, or anything un controlable.
    libido=higher than normal lol.
    joints=i did wake up stiff and sore, but as the day went on i felt fine, so it could of been just a bad nights rest.
    apprence=feeling fuller and and harder. Vascalinty is increasing also. Pumps for this day where very good, chest popped and so did triceps.


    Just a note about today day 10. I had a hard time sleeping last night, along with feeling a bit stressed for no apparent reason. Also my water intake was about the same as it has been but woke up very dehydrated.(urine was a dark dark yellow) Also had pain in my back around my kidney area. No idea what this is from.

    Late last night I noticed that my lower back region was kinda hurting. It's a tad worse today than yesterday. It was weird because I hadn't done anything that would cause this. Not sure if it's a mild back pump or what but when you mentioned that it made me really think about it.

    Sounds like things are going well though keep it up

    thanks
    and now that you mention it, my low lower back(if that makes sense) was bothering me a lot lately, but only if i push down on my hip/spin. It doesn't hurt unless i sit down a lean against something, not when i'm standing or twisting. I didnt think much of it till you brought up your back pain. I dont think its a pump, but i can't recall banging into anyting, and there is no bruising or anything to suggest I did bang it. I dont know if there is any correlation tho.

  5. day 10 update will be coming soon, but just want to get a question out there.
    This morning, waking up for an early class must of been half asleep, but couldnt remember for the life of me if I took my morning dose of The One. I ended up having to count the bottle and it turned out I did.
    So lets say something like that happened, and for whatever reason you couldn't count the caps left, would it be better to take an extra dose, or skip it.

    If that occurs then skip that day's dose. Don't take extra doses.

    Cheers!

  9. Alright, a short update for now. First off i am alive, the reason for the past week or so of no updates is due to a crazy school schedule plus an added fall season start for my sport (we'll call sport'X' for now)
    The last update i believe was from day 10, inorder to save time as well as from myself ripping out my hair I'm not going to give a day by day update with training and everything for day 10 to the start of this week. Ill just hit some high lights that training and calorie consumption were at its norm. Ill be posting pictures from the start of this week
    Training so far from monday the 14th goes as follows
    monday=1 mile run/short sportX practice
    tuesday=1.3 mile run/rest
    wedsenday=morning fitness testing (60yrd and mile runs)/2 hour full practice/no lift
    today=short practice for sportX going to lift soon.

    As you can see my lifting schedule is very hectic and screwed up this week. Today ill be haveing a light work on chest and a back workout. This is because saturday is a strenth fitness test in which include a bench test as well as leg press test. (not to mention i just got new APT lifting hooks I want to try out)
    Friday will be an off day or a light lift day with a full practice
    this weekend will go
    saturday=no lift/ all day scrimmage/practice
    sunday=same as saturday with lift
    starting next week(week 3) lifting will go back to full and regular routine.
    I do not believe this week as impact my cycle negatively that much do to the amount of work getting in at practice. Also due to the extra cardio that goes along with practice calories are going to be increaseing (not only to still maintain growth and strength goals but natural hunger i find is also increasing)
    As far as highlight till now
    I've notice i'm much leaner then I was 2 weeks ago, as well as much more vascular. I feel my muscels look and feel much harder while working out, and even not in the gym. Strength has deffinally gone up. As far as size, i feel my calorie confusion could be a lack of mass, but also I am not training for mass so i'm not too worrried about that.

    Expect regular updates from now on starting tomorrow morning with todays workout and day update.

    Sorry again everyone.

  10. Glad to see everything is still going well. Finish up strong!

  11. Yeah glad everything has been going well. I was beginning to wonder what happened lol. I know what it's like to be overwhelmed with school. Just keep us updated when you can and I'll be watching.

  12. thanks for the support guys expect an update sometime today at a more decent hour.
    just a note, todays workout was pretty good, lifting hooks took a little while to ajust to from straps, but made a big impact on the amount able to lift. I highly recommend (personally i got the aluminum hooks by APT gear)
    yesterday was day 18 expect a full write up like i said in a few hours.

  13. Sounds good I'm kinda curious where your at now since your a week ahead of me!

  14. So here is Week 2 in a nuttshell,and an overview of my weekend and what week 3 hold.
    Week 2:
    Overall i feel week 2 was a good week. I started to really feel the effects of the one. Hardness and fullness are at an all time high. vasculinity is also amazing. Libido seems to dropped a little. Now i'm not sure if its just cause i'm so damn tired after practice, but I haven't been wanting to get on my gf like usual lol. More i think about it, it could be just i'm too tired. Mood, and agression have been fine. Aggression in the gym is up, as well as at and before practice. Nothing too aggressive, or rage, just getting work done. As far as side, i've notice my acne mainly on my back increasing. Its generally not as bad as its been, so my first thought it the one. Its not terrible, just more than normal. Hair is all accounted for.

    Today was a strength test were I benched 205 17 times and leg press 450 94 times 2 intersquad games today another 2 tomorrow, resting from lifting this weekend, hit it hard starting monday again

  15. so as far as today goes, my cals are way way low, On field from 1 to 7 made it hard to eat. Dead tired right now legs are shot. Tomorrow will be pretty much same as today as far as with practice and eating wise.

  16. So where are you at weight wise now? Up, down....?

    right now this morning's weigh in was at 206. which is up 8 pounds. I feel thats pretty good considering my BF has gone down some, and my cardio has been pumped up this past week.

  18. Well that's good my weight has been bouncing around a lot. It's like it stays steady for a day or two then bounces up. I've been steady at 183 for 3 days now. But I can't complain I mean it's up 6.5lbs. I just hope I can get it up just a little more. You had any sides so far?

    you should be able to get it up more only going into 2nd week. Make sure you drink a lot, and eat. so far i've notice i've been breaking out with acne on my back a little more than usual, as well as on my face. besides that no sides to report.

  20. just got back from my lift today. Not my best, had some pain in my right tricep. might be an over stressed muscle i'm not sure. Will see the trainer on campus about it tomorrow am. offical full update coming later tonight.

  21. Day 22:
    Yesterday was day 22, as well as start of week 4(final week). Lets get some new week things out of the way.
    first off measurements
    chest=43.5
    waist=34
    L/R arm= 15/15.5
    L/R Leg= 25/25.5

    some up, some down. I'm happy my waist went down, as well as my chest and arms increased. My legs evened out a little. Over all happy with the numbers considering a very hectic 3rd week.

    Overall this weekend was a long one. On the field all weekend left me lift less, and low on calories which was a killer, but I did try and make up for them Monday. While I didn't meet my calorie goals, I did feel bloated from not eating as much is 2 days.

    Also for MOnday's workout. I felt considerable amount of pain in my right tricep where if your moving from your elbow up, right when you get to the bludge, that incline to the peak was where I was feeling some pain. This shortened my lift which i wasn't too happy about. Here is how it went

    Decline Bench 185x5 185x5 185x5
    (This is were I started to feel the pain, moved to heavy dumb bench and realized the pain continued)
    Dumb flat bench 80x5 80x5 80x5
    dumb bench/fly superset 45x10/20x10 45x10/20x10 45x10/20x10 45x10/20x10 45x10/20x10
    push ups 15/15/15

    Food intake
    cals=2657
    fat=107
    carbs=241
    protien=173

    Strength=up. noticable stronger than I started, even surpised myself
    hardness=up, sepcailly during workouts
    vascalinity= way up. As i said before, viens i never knew i had come out during lifts
    mood=better than normal
    libido=slightly increased
    sleep=last night i found it hard to sleep well, but i did have a off sleep schedule this past weekend, so that could of been why
    sides= nothing to report other than increased acne on back and face.



  22. Seems like you've seen some great results from your measurements. Gotta keep those cals up though. Good luck on week 4 make it count!

    yeah i hear ya'. Yesterday I did a better job of that. Day 23 update to come today/

  24. Day 23:

    yesterday was a pretty solid day. I slept well, mood throughout the day was well, nothing to out of the ordinary. A light practice took place at noon. then a light workout. This was more to get the heart rate elevated, and a good sweat going than getting stronger. This is team mandated so I couldn't get around it. Went back to my room, rested, ate, and come back later that night and got the real stuff going. I Pushed past my squat max. late summer i attempted 6 plate(3 each side/315 ibs) and only pulled off a half rep. Last night I hit 315 for 5 full reps, the last rep even going sub parallel. A great feeling. I've been backing off Jacked(by USP labs) and noticed, that my intensity is all still there. My aggression and concentration have never been higher. I just wanna get up and lift.

    Workout 1.
    explosive step ups 40s x10 40s x10 40s x10 40s x10 40s x10
    *dumbbell squat 45x10 45x10 45x10 45x10 45x10
    *exercise ball back extensions bwx10 bwx10 bwx10 bwx10 bwx10
    rope swings 70x10 70x10 70x10 70x10 70x10

    Workout 2.
    Squat 135x5 185x5 225x5 275x5 315x5
    front squat 135x10 135x10 135x10 135x10 135x10

    *BB Row 85x10 85x10 85x10 85x10 85x10
    (*=these were a superset)

    Food intake was good today, though my fat was kinda high

    cals=3786
    Fat=145
    carbs=302
    protein =281

    The overall summary

    Strength=up, and still increasing.
    hardness/fullness=feeling hard during and after workouts, and full all the time. Really seeing a difference in the mirror.
    vascalinity= Still way up
    mood=better than normal
    libido=slightly increased
    sleep= slept well last time
    sides= still nothing besides some acne

    today i have a full practice, and then Ill be lifting tonight. Today ill be hitting it with some big lifts, Olympic, and maybe a barbell complex, working my entire body.



  25. That's some training for a day (looks like one of mine, LOL) Great stuff so far!
