Okay what a morning. I had a near escape during squatting I will tell you about when I get there. I did my morning weigh in to see where I am right now and sitting at 208 fasted this morning not too bad for Day 18 of PCT. That is 18 lbs from the starting point but I have to admit some water and glycogen make up that difference in weight, but only a few lbs of it.
I did start taking 2 a day starting yesterday. Man that Icaarin in there works fast. My stuff was hanging all limp noodle not even much blood flowing into that vein as of yesterday morning. Now it has some of it’s normal girth and heft to it which is nice. Momma is gonna be in trouble come Thursday after the doctor. LOL
Everything else I am dosing the same, Formadrol is down to 2 a day now, next week 1 a day and once done I will finish my tapering off the AI’s with the T911. I have to say I love that I am getting a little extra RezV between the T911 and the . The Suppress C, I just really like how this actually feels like it is being absorbed when you put it on. Within 2 minutes after applying I am pretty much dry and it is all soaked up.
The lift today was a good one and made some strength increases.
HS WIDE Chest Press -
160x5 First let me say YES! I am happy it was open. I got tp push hard and see my strength is still going up a little. I got 5 extra lbs on this lift and also increased weight more quickly so overall volume was more as well.
Life Fitness Shoulder Press Machine -
170x5 Finally! I was stepping up in weight trying to find where i needed to be since it was a different machine. 155 worked me and 170 was extremel hard work to complete. I will start at 155 next time, and maybe see if I can do it all the way through.
Dip Machine -
330x5 - This was the entire stack and it finally became challenging. I don’t think this machine is going to be an option for me. I was avoiding regular dips to avoid being suspended in the air and have my shoulder fail but that is a chance I will have to take I guess. It feels pretty stable in that range of motion anyway so I will try body weight ones with slow reps. That way if shoulder gives I just put my feet down and I am standing.
BB Squats -
335x5 - Man I had a near miss with this one today. My back was still a little tired from the Dead lifts the other day so not sure why I went for the gusto on these but I had some intensity planned. For some reason as I finished this I did not tuck my hips under me before I started to walk toward the rack to put up the weight. My hips being out of place started tipping me forward and over I almost lost control of the bar and went crashing into the front rails of the cage. I made a quick correction... arched my back hard and stepped forward with one foot to get under the weight and was able to regain control of the bar before smashing into the front rails. I put it back up in the pins and had a moment of relief, but just a moment because after putting the bar up my back relaxed for a second and then it all tensed up. I was able to shake it out but it was bad enough I knew squatting again today was just a bad idea. I still had 2 sets of leg work to complete so I opted for leg extensions since quads are the push muscle.
170x5 slow burning rpes
210x11 slow burning reps until failure on this set.
My back is still a little tender and I think I was supposed to try to max on DL this week. I think I may opt for a change in plans. I have a pull workout Thursday but I am going to do a mixed upper body day. Then Saturday when I go to the gym I will start with Deads, and then move to some leg press to completely my legs into submission. Perhaps I will do my dead lifts and then have a go at doing centuries on the leg press. That sounds like a hell of a workout doesn’t it. Yeah to me too!
