    Front squats 265 X 5, 265 X 9 it just felt very heavy, and my focus was off.. will try this weight again on thursday.
    Db incline press (30 degrees) 90 X 10, 90 X 7 damn shoulder
    Lat pulldown 165 X 10 X 2 last couple reps on the second set were rough and could feel the pull in my shoulder..
    Bent over rows supine grip 155 X 10 X 2 getting challenging
    Push Press 140 X 9, 140 X 7 I was reeling by this time just plain dead.
    Decline Tri Extension 110 X 10 X 2 was a bit surprised how well this went on the first set the second was a battle.
    Obar curl 120X 10 X 2 Body English at the end of the second set.
    Calf raise 135 X 10 X 2

    Not Terrible but not the power I am used to having. I was a bit de-hydrated as I was sweating so much anything I drank went right through me, I needed electrolytes. Oh and I must have walked about 12 miles yesterday, it's definitely a factor but I am trimming down a bit because of it.
    It was also very humid here for the end of Sept. I was like WTF when I was outside.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    That is why I quit bench press four years ago just not good for my shoulder and I have long arms, I get just as good if not better chest development from other exercises. Dorian Yates talks a lot about why bench really is not the best exercise. if it works for you great, just does not work for myself, decline bench works my chest much better than bench. incline as well

    I do get some good development from bench press but also have long arms. I had to make some adjustments to isolate the chest as I was a major front delt presser.

    94.7% humidity yesterday so you better believe I was prepared this time picked up some gatorade. On top of that it just rained and rained. On my way to the gym it was 50 minutes of hell...

    Front squats 265 X 10 PR, 265 X 9 Truth be told the reps on the second set were what I was most proud of, reps 2 through 8 were done very well, I was feeling good power.
    Db incline press (30 degrees) 95 X 7, 95 X 5 damn shoulder again when I start to get heavy it just folds.
    Lat pulldown 170 X 10 X 2 better than tuesday, all good reps
    Bent over rows supine grip 165 X 10 X 2 surpising power.
    Push Press 145 X 8, 145 X 6 right about here I hit the wall.
    Decline Tri Extension 115 X 10 X 115 X 8
    Obar curl 125 X 9 X 125 X 7 .
    Calf raise 140 X 10 X 2

    I had some good power in the begining but I set a very hard pace and lost it near the end.. oh well on to 5's totally different dynamic.

    The walk home was horrible as it was storm like conditions, think we must have set a record for rain.

    I had to drive to NY yesterday and it was pouring rain. I hate driving on the highway when it is pouring as those huge trucks decide they are going to blow by you and throw huge amounts of water making it even harder to see well ARGGGG!!!!!

    Always taking Cycle support, HGHPro, Motivate, got low on glycobol so going to restock and save it for cutting. I was using stoked but that supply got low and I am using formestane now. Stoked and Glycobol are on my next order.

  15. Much better workout now that I am using 5's some exercises were more challenging that I am comfortable with at this point in time with 5 more increases.

    Front squats 275 X 5 X 2 felt heavy but good power here.
    Db incline press (30 degrees) 95 X 5 X 2 Might not see many increases from here shoulder is just not taking the weight the way I would like.
    Lat pulldown 165 X 5 X 2 owned.
    Bent over rows supine grip 175 X 5 X 2 good sets
    Push Press 140 X 5 X 2 Had some problems with the first set and got mad and owned the second.
    Decline Tri Extension 105 X 5 X 2 owned
    Obar curl 130X 5 X 2 Completely crushed this, it felt very light
    Calf raise 130 X 5 X 2

    Like I said going to have to really drive to make some of these lifts go up, I have not been able to go above 100 on incline db press since the injury so I wouldn't expect to get to much higher. Not going to risk re-injury for ego.

    I got some good rest this weekend, my legs were a bit stiff yesterday but when I got up this morning they were better than last monday. Just to give you an idea, I walked 80 kilometers last week (about 50 miles). I trimmed down just a bit because my eating has been off on the weekends. I have to get that under control. I am getting away with it so far but I could have been pretty lean by now.

  16. Ok just got caught up Doug and thanks for answering my earlier question above. You are moving some weight big guy, don't let the shoulder diminish the positive aspects of near constant PRs. I feel you on incline man, I have gone as high as 105 but my shoulders hate me after those days (it was actually on Pink Magic I did that too) so I can't do it anymore. I actually switched to decline/incline bench press now and I have less issues which is very surprising to me.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    I have issues with all chest exercises, it helps when the db's are closer together and it puts less stress on my shoulder.

    Yah it's pretty decent tasting, if you had tried the previous versions of chocolate then you'd know what a miracle that really is. Used to be the absolute worst. Well it tasted precisely like vomit...

    Pleasure lol that's funny. I think it's the red rice yeast that causes most of the problem but it's not the only unpleasant element. This orange they use seems to be ideal for hiding the taste, pretty remarkable. The stuff works well too, I noticed a big improvement in prostate health and my supps just seem to work a bit better, I think it might be my liver is cleaner or healthier.

    agree. At first dose the smell REALLY threw me off. But when I tasted it I was VERY surprised! Don't know who made that, but I will continue to use for years to come!!
