"Hey, let's watch wrasslin' battle sleep in the 'PM'!" (Sponsored)
Hey guys, this log is being brought to you by Animal and we are going to see if I can finally get a replacement for my sleep meds while getting some added recovery!
So for you who were following my track log, here's an update!:
During track I got cought up with a few injuries....Started with shin splints with have progressively gotten to the point of being un-bearable, then I went through a groin injury, pulled hamstring, then tendonitus in both my knees which I believe has to lead to an un-diagnosed injury (feels like there is nothing in my knees), so I have to make a trip to the doctors if ANOTHER week off from running doesn't help. But besides all that and a sprained wrist which is better, I'm ready to rock!
As of right now everything is UNDER-CONSTRUCTION (diet/workout/and cardio) which will all be posted Monday at the start of the log. Just thought I'd post this incase anyone would like to give any input in the two and a half days before I start!

Ok guys, here's the details I know you all have been waiting for
Right now now track has just finished, so I am currently in my off season and it's time to get bigger, stronger, faster for football season coming up!
Mon-Friday- Carbs: 200-350g, Protein: 250g, Fat: 50-60g
Saturday- Carbs: 100-150g, Protein: 250g, Fat:50-60g
Sunday- Carbs: 0g, Protein: 250-300g, Fat: 60-75g
Diet is pretty much carb cycling, Monday starts high (350g) and progressively drops down in 25-50g incriments (depending on activity level for the day) until it hits 200g on Friday.
The Weight Lifting:
Monday- Chest HEAVY/Rear Delts/Calfs
Wedsday- Legs HEAVY
Thursday- Shoulders (Front/Middle), Triceps, Calfs
Friday- Chest LIGHT/Biceps/Forearms/Traps
Saturday- Legs LIGHT and anything that I think needs extra work.
Sunday- Day of rest
The heavy days will be reps of 3-8 with some drop sets added if I feel the need. Light days are 12-25 reps for muscular endurance.
Sprints ranging between 100's and 400's tops, bleachers, steppers, jump rope, and OCCASIONAL mid-distance (as a sprinter I prefer not to do distance). Cardio will include a warm up of an 800m jog and crazy eights. Cool down will be 800m jog.
Leviathan Reloaded (2 caps AM, 2 caps mid-day)
Beta-Alanine (3-4g prior to each workout)
AAKG (3-5g prior to each workout)
Glutamine (10g before bed)
DHEA (300mg ED, stopping Monday)
Multivitamin (Morning and post-workout)
Chromium/Gymnema Sylvestre/Vanadyl (Prior to carb meals)
Vitamin B-100 (Breakfast and post-workout)
And that is it! Also I have a job where I do concrete/mulch laying etc. type work so there is some extra cardio there. Will post my sloppy out of shape beginning pic here after I go do some cardio, and I will be starting the Animal PM tonight instead of tomorrow, STAY TUNED!

The Ups: Had a great sleep last night and felt more relaxed in the evening, woke up feeling very refreshed and felt a little more energetic in the morning.
The Downs: I had a hard time falling asleep still last night and had to take one and a half servings of my script sleep meds. This could also be due to me over-sleeping Saturday and Sunday.
The Summary: This looks promising so far as stated in the 'Ups' part above. I believe as my body adjusts to my regular sleep levels again it may start to shine more and also given it has only been one day. Looking forward to it tonight!

The Ups: Felt very relaxed again, pretty much same as first post. Wasn't as sore from my chest workout yesterday as I thought I would so that was great! Also I'm waking up easier still.
The Downs: Still had to take one and a half Trazadone last night and couldn't get to sleep until 4 hours after I layed down.
The Summary: This product still seems promising, I'm not going to blame my still on-going sleep problems on this because I have just started. I'm enjoying the relaxation/recovery so far!

The Ups: Last night I fell asleep right when I layed down, given it wasn't until midnight when I took it (girlfriend was over), but I was wide awake still when I took it so that shows something! The relaxation is starting to get more pronounced also.
The Downs: None.
Summary: Knees have improved a lot, I don't know how considering I've still been running and sprinting but today I squatted 315x3 for the first time since April. This probably has nothing to do with the PM....But just thought I'd put it in here!

Hey T, I just looked up everything on Trazodone and frankly it scared the sh1t out of me, I'm going to slowly decrease it this week and get off of it as soon as possible.
I don't think there's one side-effect on there that I don't have. And the parts on slurred speech/memory loss/and not good co-ordination I have VERY bad. This whole time I thought it was because of the truck accident I had back in October but I'm not so sure anymore....

The Ups: Went to sleep in a decent amount of time last night even though I still took my sleep meds. I keep waking up MUCH better though lately, this morning I almost immediatly snapped into 'wake up' mode and got my workout in!
The Downs: None at all, sleep keeps getting easier.

Ups: Haven't had to use my sleep pills at which was great! Recovery is also being great.

Forgot to take the PM with me to my mom's, so nothing really to update on from last night. I need to get a better memory haha....

Ups: Had a good sleep last night, took the PM and only one sleep med and past out right after my girlfriend left. Chest is still really sore from yesterday, but I FINALLY put up 225 on incline, twice, so that was awesome.
Downs: None to speak of.

Sorry for the lack of updates, been busy with football and work around the house.
Ups: Sleep is GREAT! A couple days this week I didn't even have to take my sleep meds to get to sleep! Also waking up very refreshed and ready to go which helped a LOT for the Combine Test we had to for football.
Downs: One of the pills got stuck in the throat the other day so I had to take a couple extra swigs of water haha.
So today we had our Combine Test for football.....I got our 4th best 40 time on the team which was surprising considering all my injuries at the moment and weighing 15-20lbs over my speedy weight haha. And I almost put up 275 on bench today....Failed though and that was UPSETTING considering I was so close. And my squats didn't do as good as I thought.....I only ended up getting 365 before my knees told me to go to hell lol. Oh well, I think were having another test after Two-A-Days in August so we'll see the improvements then.....

Ups: Woke up feeling refreshed....Only good part of last night though.
Downs: I could not get to sleep last night either.... Took one and a half Trazadones 15 min after the PM and still couldn't go to sleep, took 4 allergy pills (regular 'Drowsy') and still couldn't sleep. The only times I did sleep last night was partial-sleeping because I still felt wide awake but I was sleeping.
Not sure what last night was all about....I even had a 'workout' if you call it that around 10...I had no stims that day and I didn't have anyone stay the night either....Weird.

Ok, so I just got back from the doctor/orthepedic or whatever guy.....And I guess the bones in my legs are fine, but I have severe cases of tendonitus/shin splints and ruptures, are diminishing amounts of the tendons in my platella (I think that's what he said) and throughout my legs from the knees down.
So I'm not allowed to run, walk or stand for long periods, and I'm not supposed to do any weights or strenuos activity that involves me having to stand up (funny guy.....haha) for 3-4 weeks until I see him again.....This is sh1tty!
And he prescribed me Oxaprozin for anti-inflammatory. I really don't like taking prescriptions pills after my incident earlier this year, but I need to do whatever it takes to be able to play sports next year and ultimately boot camp after I graduate.
