If you notice anything about my diet, feel free to chime in
I have no idea what my macros are...

As of Now, im on my own Custom Version of 5x5s, i just add things here and there.
I am on Week 2 and i am already excelling really well, the weights feel easy, ive actually been doing heavy weights than said. This leads me to my...
Barbell Row 185
I am disappointed that w/ this cycle im no longer going to be taking a preworkout stim r creatine... which means i have to be EXTRA motivated!..We'll see how this go, i want it really badly so i think i will be fine!
I will put up Pre Picks/Day 1 before Lift Pics and from my Phone so they won't be great... in about 15 minutes when i get off work, before i head to the gym.
I also would like to link my 5x5 excel spreadsheet, but i do not know how to do attachement! YET!

10-16-09 Day 1 without Preworkout Stims.
185x3.....PR, old PR was 185x6 w/Bouncing off chest, no i got 3 legit zero bounce slow reps
135x8.....suppose to be x5 but whatever.
Weighted Dips : Man i felt it in my shoulders...its obvious they are lacking
(BTW no half reps, i go as low as i can go then all the way up!)
Cable Tricep PullDown w/the flat bar, Close grip
Squat Superset w/ REverse Grip Single Arm Press Down
Barx8 / 1x10 Last one felt small Burn
95x5 / 1x10 Last one felt small Burn
115x5 / Rest
135x5 / 1x6 , Drop Set and Got 4 Tight SQueezer Burner ONES!(10 reps total)
160x5 / NOthing
185x3 PR= Ive never put this much weight on my back before, i felt like a champ! w/ no stims Pure motivation!!!!!!
135x8 i meant to do 5 i messed up, but i got 8!
Hang Cleans: At this Point im semi Motivated and Pumps Finally!!! Kicked in, i did not feel up to Powercleans from the ground cuz my lowerback is still a bit sore, no use and go on it hard. So instead i did Muscle up HangCleans esentially:
HC / Leg Extension / FLys 30DBs
60x5 / Nothing / Nothing
80x7 / Nothing / Nothing
95x5 / Nothing / Nothing
115x5 / 1x12 / 1x15
135xf 135xf 135xf 3x125 Holy **** That was nuts, took full rest no superset
95x8 / 1x12 /1x12-15
Wow that was Nuts by this time, my quads feel like they are aching and same with triceps and a bit of my shoulders..... Pumps have kicked in mad, hence me trying to go 135 while at like 70% percent of less of norma strength.
225x10 Drop Set 185x8 Infront of me then 185x8 from behind..slight diff angle.
This workout started off pretty bad, no one was at the gym and i had one ear bud, and i was not that into it and it was kinda late, and i just was not amped to be at the gym. I had taken no preworkout stims, which is not usual. It took about 45 minutes into my workout for me to notice my pump and to start really getting into things. When you get tha pump. you know you got, it felt SOOO good, especially knowing that it was all me! I wanted to do High intensity cardio first then Squats, PC, Bench then little accessory things, but areas were taken and my motivation like i said in the beginning was pretty damm low.... But i got through it and had a sick workout! I tried Xtend' apple flavor, it was preetty good, after my workout i weighed 147.3, pretty light, i put a lot of effort into this workout. AGain if i ahad another ear bud things would be a little different.
Overall good workout looking forward to the next one, from this workout i realized my shoulders are BEHIND! Do work!
This morning: 10-17-09
My right bicep joint, with my top fore arm muscle, basically like lower bicep to fore arm aka elbow joint haha is like achy ish this morning any ideas...... maybe the flys....
Is this an example of back pump but in bicep area, like those areas on my arms feel weird just typing all this out...like as if they are semi fatiguing... any ideas..

Decline Side Abs
Side Abs w/DB
2x with 50DB
2x10 superset each set with Crunch until Burn!
I had 3/4 cup of oats today and i felt kinda full still, regardless i just again anyway. Im still looking for the perfect pre-workout staple, i like to be routine. Lift went good, abs felt mad firm, and shoulders felt a lil beat.
According to the scale post workout i weighed: 150.1 or 150.2 can't remember unfortunately. COuld be water weights, either way there are many variables, this saturday, i will weigh my self after i wake up and compare to last saturday, that will be the ultimate test. Still though its been over 6 months since ive seen myself in the 150s
On top of all that im feeling great
10-21-2009, 10:00 PM
What are side abs? Also rock aways? Thanks.
10-22-2009, 12:03 PM
here is link to what i consider a diff. version of hollow rocks : youtubeDOTcom/watch?v=76YiwFKp4L4&feature=re lated
Side abs: the one where you hold a DB then lean and feel a stretch to one side then contract and go back to normal and hold for a 1.5 seconds then repeat.
Hope that helps!
10-22-2009, 04:05 PM
Side abs build up love handles... Just an FYI... I though thats what you were saying.
10-22-2009, 04:40 PM
10-22-2009, 09:56 PM
No sides, feeling great, i feel bigger.... just hope im stronger. we'll find out tomorrow.
10-23-2009, 03:42 PM
10 23 09
195x3 never put this much weiht on my back!!!! PRish
185x4 PR could of hit 5, but i hit the second safety bar on way down, and threw everything off
Tricep Rope Down: these hurt my shoulders,,... why.... please help, its like a mini sharp just like burn acute pain, i think its just my shoulders are weak....

35 DB 8,12
Another Tricep Press down this one is in the shape of a V upside down kinda
12,6 drop set to 6 more
135x6 slow and for form, then went to the infamous ropedown and busted out a last set of 8 and superstted it to another tricep machine for final burnout
I decided not to do Powercleans, i ran out of time, im at work now. i had to fit everything in.
So tomorrow will be back, biceps and trap-shoulders
Good lift: i hit 185x4 in full control, form was not amazing, but i got it up. and i hit 195x3 on squats.
Im definitly feeling some pumps in my lower back throughout the day and random like high blood pressure, im going to start training with a heart rate monitor and in general check out m RHR and etc.
I am also going to order some taurine and milk thistle.
Wish me luck. Tomorrow im going to weigh my self in the morning to do a week 1 recap.
10-23-2009, 05:17 PM
They work the muscle that is where "love handles" would be if you had any fat on you. If you have fat there the muscle will build up under, or you can get muscular in that area. It is a personal thing I don't care for that look. I used to do those but stpped when I figured out it wasn't helping but made it worse lol. They were getting bigger...
10-23-2009, 05:51 PM
subbed, want to get me some Halovar. What else have you ran?

Congrats on the school and nice log!
Big gains to come...
10-24-2009, 09:12 AM
Well yea so this is first real official weigh in all the others ive done were post lift. VERY INACCURATE, for instance for the start of this cycle i thought i was 147.1, yesterday after gym it said i was 151, the day before 150.7 without shoes... today this morning after pee and half glass of water i am 146.6 . Yea its light, it kinda makes me happy for two reasons to see that number.
1. Placebo effect, there was none, everything was legit, and i ate a lot, and i did not gain a lot of extra fat, and there is actually a noticable STRENGTH INCREASE, which is very exciting for me ive been at a plateu.
2. This is a sign that i can up the calories more, which means more food, which im happy about.
3. Means that i now have an official starting point thats accurate. 146.6 week 1 and strength logs as well
Basically im still happy, i was going to increase the dosage, but as you all can see, i will definitly benifit increasing my FOOD intake more. Im thinking just eat the same and add some ice cream at night?..... or should i just add more food throughout the day.
Today will be week 1 of a new bulk. I weighed 146.6 this morning.
My strength has gone up! Im worried about abs and stuff cuz of getting fat, but im slowly starting to forget about that. Im hittin 185 x4 twice yesterday which means, it was not that big of a problem, and i figured out what i was not doing for chest and i squted 185x8 last monday and yesterday 195x3, so those two are personal bests.
Again my goals:
Squat:225 Perfect form slow all the way down DEEP LOW all the way up
Bench 225: No bounce, Full Control , touch chest.
Overhead Press 135:
Deadlift: 315 perfect Form, ZERO ROUNDED BACK!
Hang Clean 155:
I heading towards these goals. Im deciding today to up the calories a little and on my off day to eat really clean and to have one cheat DAY, not meal, just help me get the extra calories for the weak. ITs time to increase calories.
If anyone whats to chime in a good ratio:
I was thinking just make sure i get at least 150 grams of protein in me, and make up the rest of the 3000-3500 calories from fats and carbs.
Any suggestions would be awesome.
Some people say no cabrs before bed, others argue a calorie is a calorie man.
At this point Im in a mix of feeling, but i am definitly going to shoot fro at LEAST 2800-3600.
I will start posting my meals for this next week if ya'll would like to see them.,
I'll post my workout after i do it in a couple of hours!
10-24-2009, 02:21 PM
btw my chest is so fing sore... time to eat more and recover.....
ya'll should check out puritan pride .com its having good sales. im thinking of getting some goods there. like milk thistle, and etc.
10-25-2009, 01:36 PM
this site will not allow me to post pictures, or websites basically im its slave haha
well here is week 1 pictures and more!
10-25-2009, 01:37 PM
Week 1 recap:
Weight this morning: 148lbs. That about 2 lbs.
Today i noticed a slight increase in libido. Which is really nice haha . AS far as strength goes, my Bench has gone up from struggling to get 185 three times last week, to getting 185x4 twice in which i possibly should of gotten 5 reps. My squat has gone from 175x5 to about 185x8 and 195x3 are my personal best, everyweek, its been going up!
I reformatted my goals now. Main goal: Hit 225.... yep ... either squat or Bench, which ever comes first. Once i hit it, im going to try to get my chest jacked, so its more "striated" i feel like i have a fat chest, it does not feel fat, like its not, but by the pictures it pops out, and i'd rather it be popped out and be chizzled... so people don;t question whether its muscle. I also want to get my shoulders a billions times stronger, and bigger arms and larger calves. But until then, im still keeping with an Urban 5x5 regime to increase strength.
So far ive not really experienced any sides, besides like mild low back like kidney bothersome aka pump, and i got towards the end of one of my ridic workouts... Nothing big at all, so far though im running: 50mgs 25 morning 25 evening.
Ummmmm.. thats basically it, i want to up the dosage, but today i felt the libido increase, so i decided not to.
I really curious though where im gaining my mass thats why i took the measurements hopefully more good stuff is to come!
10-26-2009, 06:56 PM
5 min Light Cardio
195x5 New PR.
Warm up Bar

75Degree Incline or 60degree poss. (trying to hit a bit more shoulders)

This workout was quite strange.... i hit the squat PR, so im happy but, i lost focus, and im not going to back again until i have more of a plan, i could not decide what to do and so on. In addition for some reason i wanted to do a leg press and decline stuff, and more abs and shoulder work, but i just couldn't i lost motivation and i was already there for a long time.
I think i need to look more into my diet AGAIN, i think i could be eating more...
Overall Great lift no complaints, 185 felt pretty light, i could of hit 5 but i was wearing a HR monitor so i went down super slow and that makes things a lot harder, and i was trying to not lose any form at all.
No real sides, besides my heart rate is up and i think my resting heart rate is up, my heart recovery is still good though,....Should i poss think of moving the dosage up...
any suggestions, as of now im not going to .

thats a pretty big jump from about 147 ish or 148 ahha, so we'll see next weekend, what it realy is haha when i weigh myself when i go up and thankfully i took measurements, cuz i do not feel really fat, but my jeans around my thighs feel a bit smaller... hahaha

12-03-2009, 08:38 PM
you better go see a ****ing doctor...
75 mgs of halovar.
this was such.... such... a stupid thing to do.
you better go see a doctor to save your nuts.
age 20, 147 lbs. the **** were you thinking? food and a little determination alone would have done plenty for your size and strength.
halovar will shut your nuts off by week three....and with your age... you better pray to whomever you pray to that you can jump start them back up... otherwise, you'll live the rest of your life with the need of doctor supervision to make sure you dont grow tits and cry from sad movies.
good luck with your life you ignorant child.
12-03-2009, 10:40 PM
I personaly think you should have REALLY thought this out more, you should not be 5'10 and that weight and even know what AAS or DS even is, you should have focused more on learning how to eat and train right and stuck with some creatine and a multi..... I am 5'4 and weigh more than you at 17 years old and this is after 7 months off and multiple injuries one that I am still recovering from....
BUT, you already started, your making progress I assume, even with the above mentioned I hope this cycle works out for you in the end. Just after this please re-think the whole situation your in... before you jump on another hormone, it's your body and your life/goals so I'm not going to go bashing you for choices you make, good luck.
