N8te gets it done with Muscle Marinade (sponsored log)
(I am posting this from another forum as I will be logging this on both sites so the the first day was actually yesterday. It's all been cut and pasted so some parts of the posts might not make sense right now.)
Ok after a weekend at the beach I get back today to find that I have received my tub of Muscle Marinade from Purus. I'm going to be working out in a few hours but wanted to get this log up right now.
24 yrs old
Lifting for 4 years (started at 145)
Routine is changing at the moment and I think I might be going back to push, pull, legs so I can hit everything twice a week. I really enjoyed this routine last time I tried it.
*initial thoughts- I opened the tub and this stuff smells like Parmesan cheese. Yea, I know it sounds weird but thats what it smells like. I even got my mom to smell it to make sure I wasn't going crazy and she agrees. So you heard it here first. According to me and my mother, the almighty authority on preworkout supps, that this stuff smells like cheese. Maybe thats the secret ingredient?
Will update later tonight after back workout.

Yo I heard you guys want an update
Day 1: Back and tris
Lat Pulldowns: 120*10, 150*10, 180*10*2
Bent Over Rows BB: 135*10, 185*10, 225*7(don't know what happened), 225*10(go figure)
Seated Rows w/ Lat pull bar: 120*15, 170*10, 190*10, 190*8
Lat Pulls - arms extended pulled down to thighs (not sure what they are called): 90*10, 120*10, 140*10*2
Face Pulls w/ rope: 50*10, 90*10, 70*12, 50*15 No rest
V-bar press downs: 140*10, 170*10, 190*10*2
Close grip bench: 135*10*4 SS with back extensions BW*10*4
I usually do deads on shoulder day to those wondering why deads aren't on here b/c after bent over rows my lower back is a little sore.
Initial Thoughts: Stuff stinks, smells like Parmesan cheese. I'm not a big fan of grape flavored anything but the taste really isn't all that bad its just the smell that gets me b/c I can smell it when I tilt the bottle to drink it. But if it works I don't care b/c I ingested nastier **** before in hopes of getting bigger or having energy at the gym. And let me tell you -----It does work. It gave me a good pump and it wasn't that gross tingling feeling that some other pre workout drinks give me. One scoop is enough for now but I'm really resistant to these type drinks so we'll see if it keeps up. I hope it does its the only think that has every worked for me with one scoop, even jack3d takes two and I liked that product a lot.
On another note, my gf is late with her cycle by a few days and I am freaking out seeing as how I just had a child with her 6 months ago and I don't have a job b/c this country's job situation is ****ed and my degree hinders me from finding a full time job at most places b/c they think I'm going to up and leave when another career job comes along (which is true). I really hope shes not preggo, and I'm extremely stressed but I did manage to have a great workout which I am surprised about. Condoms are not 99.9% effective with me. Word to wise: Vasectomy = the only way to go.
If anyone has any ?'s lemme know

No gym today I've felt very lethargic all day for some strange reason. BUT I did get a call about a job lead today so hopefully she will call me back tomorrow and we'll get this ball rolling.

OK guys feeling a lot more awake today and can't wait to get to the gym for chest today, so ready to get this MM in me haha. I really didn't realize how much I like it until I go a day w/o it.
06-03-2010, 05:32 PM
Good luck with the workout! This stuff should REALLY wake you up lol
06-03-2010, 10:06 PM
Day 2: Chest and Bis
Flat Bench: 135*12, 185*10, 185*10, 185*10, 135*10 Not really feeling it today. I think I'm goin to stop doing flat bench. I don't touch my chest most of the time anyway b/c I have long arms and the stretch isn't there if I touch my chest. Or maybe I just have a small chest haha.
Chest press: 120*10, 185*10,265*10,265*8
Cable Flys: 40*10, 60*10, 70*10*2
Incline Cable Flys: 30*10, 40*10*3 On these I just wanted to get a good contraction not concerned about weight.
Incline Smith: 135*12*4. I HATE inclines on the Smith I don't feel a good stretch like on reg. incline bench, but since I worked out at Planet Thickness tonight and every out of shape person kept taking up space on the incline this was my only choice.
Pec Deck (one arm at a time): 85*10, 115*10, 135*10,85*10
BB curls in the squat rack (its planet fitness for God's sake no one uses this thing for squats): 45*15, 65*8, 85*8,85*8, 65*12, 45*15
Cable Curls w/ lat pull bar: 100*10, 120*10, 140*10
Reverse Cable curls w/ ez bar: 80*10, 100*10, 120*10, 100*8
Good workout overall I just couldn't keep a stretch in my chest today for some reason. I think had I been able to get in the incline bench things would have felt better.
As far as MM goes it worked amazing. Purus has really got their **** together with this supp. I'm not trying to hype this product b/c I got it for free (but I do appreciate it). This **** just really works and it works even after I've left the gym. One scoop is still working good and I think if I took two I might have a heart attack, its gets me crazy amped. To top it off its got no calories at all which is great b/c I hate sugary pre workout supps.

Day 3: Shoulders
Smith military press: 135*10, 155*10, 185*10, 135*12
DB press: 55*10, 65*10, 65*10, 55*10
BB Upright rows: 65*12, 85*10,95*8, 85*10
BB front raises: 40*10, 50*10, 60*10, 60*10
Reverse flys SS w/ DB shrugs: 20*10*4 / 70*10*4
Rainbows (ouch): 85*failure*3 SS w/ side and front raises w/ 10lb plates *20*3
Well I think I might have figured out why I was not feeling so hot the other day when I didn't go to the gym. Weeeell I like to eat tuna and cottage cheese and I went into the fridge today to make a meal and realized that the tub of cottage cheese that I bought this week and ate the other day was to be sold by 2-10-2010!!!!! what the ****!?! No wonder I felt like crap. I can't believe that I didn't check the date before I bought it and that it was still on the shelf. Check your dates people.

Day 5: Chest
Good chest workout today. My shoulder was kinda bothering me today so I mostly stuck to the hammer strength machines. I'm getting ready for a job interview tomorrow morning so this update will be short. MM is still nothing short of amazing and I'm used to the smell and taste now no complaints!

Ok sorry fellas life caught up with me the past two days and I was finally able to lift today. No more rest days this week Still waiting to hear back about the job I interviewed for the other day, it'll probably be a while.
Day 6: Back
Bent Over Rows: 135x10x4 (warm up)
Lat Pulldowns: 135*10, 165*10, 180*8*2
Lawnmowers: 80*10, 95*10, 110*10 ( I do these by leaning on the back of either the incline bench or seated chair b/c my arms are pretty long & when I go to bigger DBs they hit the floor and I lose that stretch)
Close grip rows: 120*10, 150*10, 180*10*2
Lat Pulldowns: 60*10, 70*10, 95*10, 100*10
Reverse flys (cables): 30*10, 45*10*3
No change to report in how well MM works, still no complaints at all

Lat Pulldowns Behind Neck: 150*10*4 (warm up)
Lat Pulls: 90*10*4 (warm up)
Side Raises: 15*15, 25*12, 30*10, 35*10 one arm at a time.
Reverse Flys w/ DB: 25*15, 35*10, 40*10, 50*10 PR Felt great
DB Shrugs SS with the flys: 80*10*4
Rainbows SS with front and side raises: 85*15*3 w/ 10lbDBs 15*3 for front and side raises.

Days 8 & 9:
Day 8: Legs: nothing extra special to report, still pushing 945 on leg press for my final set that will probably change though b/c I'm bringing back squats into the routine this week.
Day 9: Chest (today)
Shoulder warm ups for first 10 min. just to get the blood flowing and that rotator cuff eased into the work out.
Flat bench: 185*10*4
Cable Flyes on free motion machine: 40*10, 50*10, 60*10 70*10 drop to 40*12
Incline DB flyes: 35*10, 47.5*10, 55*10*2 ----Shoulder felt great
Hammer Strength Incline Press: 180*10*2
Incline BB Bench: 185*8*2
Decline Cable Flyes (free motion): 40*10, 50*10*3 really tight, slow contractions
Neck Presses 105*10*3 (haven't done these in a while but I like em)
Reverse Grip Bench: 135*10*3
Pushdowns: 200*10*5 w/ Lat bar *Using the lat bar feels better b/c I can use a wider grip and I think it helps me w/ my lockout on bench more than closer grip.
I had ridiculous amounts of energy today in the gym, I felt like I could have lifted for 3 hrs. I think I found a way to make my flyes work better for me. Instead of bracing myself with my back leg I'll just lean forward and let the cables hold the majority of my weight to stabilize myself. This way I'm not cheating and I can keep that stretch better in my chest and keep it off my shoulder.
My weight is now 196 or so on an empty stomach and I think its about time to start bulking again 230 here I come!!
I'm gonna do a larger update in a day or two to explain a little more about things.

I am still dead from yesterday and so I'm moving legs to tomorrow, I don't think squats would be that great after those deads yesterday.
MM is still awesome
I'm currently planning a cycle for the near future (PH & AAS) has anyone got any good ideas that I should think of?

Good workout today. Got to workout with a childhood buddy that I haven't seen in a while. I'm 195 now and really ready to bulk.Got a few jobs that I'm applying for and a position at autozone is mine if I want it, so I'll probably end up taking that I just don't want to be there for two weeks and then a better career job come along and me have to take it. But I have to watch out and do whats best for me so that might just have to happen.

It's always nice to be able to workout with someone. I usually w/o alone. I love being able to be aggressive and try to show off when someone is around. Able to push myself just a little further.
06-21-2010, 07:17 AM
Im in brother, sorry to hear about the job situation...don't know what I will be doing when I get back o.O
