Tex's Take Action- A blast from the past log

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. 2/24/11

    Interesting day today, I decided to swing by a local store to pick up some protein and ended up talking with a few people there. One of the guys tried saying that a SERM is not necessary for the stuff out on the market today, that's why it's still on the market.

    If you know anything about the PH market, you'll know things such as M1A, SD, and other powerful compounds are still 100% live. Needless to say I thought it was pretty funny, but oh well he was bigger than me so what do I know?

    Supplements
    4 caps Free Test
    2 scoops ON Gold Standard

    Workout
    DB Incline
    35x12
    35x10
    45x10
    45x8
    BB Flat
    135x5
    Fail

    Auxiliary lifts
    Cable Flyes
    Hammer Strength Incline
    2 miles on cardio bike

    It felt great today in the gym, however strength as anyone would guess is straight up gone. I hit up BB flat after doing all my incline and a few auxiliary lifts. I struggled with 135 right off the bat, and ended up getting the BB stuck on chest (had to have a bistander help me get it off).

    You guys have no idea how embarrassing this was since I don't think I used to even touch 135 in warm-ups. Anyways, it's obviously a wake up call to me that something has to change.

    Libido: I always have had a high libido, I certainly wouldn't expect free test to be kicking in already, so I'll leave this as N/A

    Pump: Good pump tonight, this is definitely something I really missed about working out. The pump along just puts you in an elevated sense of well-being. I can't wait to add Lit Up to my stack to feel it's benefits in this aspect.

    Strength: Well as mentioned it's null. I wouldn't expect it to be anything either considering how long I've been out of the gym.
    Mood:

    I'm glad I started when I did though, I've got a demo in approximately 2 weeks, so I need to be somewhat respectable by then.

    Was in the car for a long while today heading back to my parents house for the weekend. Had a nice gorging on some BBQ and some potatoes, some good bodybuilding food right there pure lean meat and carbs YUM YUM.


    Supplements
    4 caps Free Test
    1 scoop Lit Up
    VPS Synergex protein

    Luckily my little brother didn't use all the Lit Up I gave him, so I took some tonight for my back workout, and man do I love this stuff! I mixed it probably 12-14 ounces of room temperature water and the taste is definitely something I missed!

    Nice pump, vascularity, concentration, no jitters or crash! I used 1 scoop this time as that was working well for my last time, however I think I'll need to bump it up to 2 next time. Definitely pleased I will be able to use this and still go to sleep after my workouts!

    Workout
    BB Bent Rows
    95x 10
    95x10
    115x8

    DB Bent Rows

    Reverse Flyes
    15x8
    15x8
    15x8
    15x8

    Thoughts
    Libido Sky high as usual! Actually has me feeling pretty good!

    Pump/vascularity Nice pump with the addition of Lit Up tonight! I didn't do much lifting, so it was nice to feel it come on fairly quickly.

    Strength As with yesterday I can't really gauge it at this point. I wasn't really pushing myself as I'm trying to slowly work back into a routine.

    Mood Great mood today, I think the combination of being back in the gym plus free test is really making feel rejuvenated and happy with life. I know as corny as it sounds, I went through a really crappy semester last semester and was pretty low. Everyone around me has noticed a difference in my mood the past week (I think it may be moreso due to just being back in the gym, but I'd like to think Free Test is also playing a role!)

    I also figured I'd throw up some pics so you guys can see just how much blubber I've packed on. Looking at these pics you can really see my pecs & abs have deflated, everything else for the most part maintained as far as my upper body is concerned. Legs also took a hit as I expected, and yes lighting makes these look better than they really should.

  11. Excellent to put up pre pics, we will see some great changes from your training. I know what you used to look like and I am sure you will kick some arse to get back to where you were.

    Just take it slow the first month or so as you adapt, then you will be able to crank it UP!

    Wicked workout today! I've been down at my parents all weekend, so I've been lifting with my old set from highschool. The $110 complete set with cement weights, brings back some memories haha!

    Solid diet this weekend of Brisket, Ribs, Sausage, and smoked turkey + green beans and potatoes. (pretty much ate the same thing everyday).

    Current Weight: 173.8 lbs

    Well, I officially am 6 days into weight lifting again (started on the 21st but delayed posting), and I just weighed in at 173.8 lbs on an empty stomach. That's a gain of 4.8 lbs at the same weigh-in time and daily routine. Obviously it's stupid to say it's all muscle, but I think the fact that I've cleaned up my diet to red meat, chicken, whole grains, and fresh produce with the combination of cardio and weight training is definitely playing an impact already.

    Supplements
    1 scoop Lit Up
    No Free Test Today
    VPX Protein

    Workout
    I wasn't planning to workout today just because I've been so sore from completing my first week of core lifts, however R1balla came over and made me get off of ass and do something.

    We ended up doing arms plus some upper chest isolation. My upper chest was always my weakspot, and I always tended to hit my shoulders instead due to improper form, so I had him work with me on it.

    I had a massive pump today, and am happy to say that I felt it all in my upper chest rather than shoulders! Not much weight at all, but felt great.

    Arms
    BB Curl
    DB Preacher Curl
    BB reverse grip curl till failure
    French Press
    Overhead tricep extensions

    Upper Chest
    Incline DB Press
    DB incline flyes

    Thoughts
    Libido Just the usual again.

    Strength Strength is the last of my concerns at the moment. Strength before taking a break was pretty nuts for my size (or so I feel), so I'm looking to be spot on with form and size this time around.

    Pump/Vascularity Massive pump/vascularity for me today. Veins were popping out of my shoulders and biceps which is always nice to see at my current BF%.

    Mood Definitely positive and happy. Working out again just provides a self esteem and self respect boost IMO. Even if I'm doing light weight, I always find myself proud to be back in the gym. Parents, and friends all have been commenting lately about my personality change (for the better) compared to last semester.

    remember to take it easy on legs for the first few workouts until they have adapted . . . or you'll be walking like a sore hooker.

    I always think of Elizabeth Shue in "Leaving Las Vegas" after taking it the hard way.

    I decided I'd get some cardio in and headed up to the local BBall court to play some. Ended up rolling my left ankle, so now it's stiff as hell and swolen.

    I'm going to ice it and keep trying to stretch it out to be able to hit legs tonight, but from what I'm feeling right now I doubt that will be happening... bad timing

    supplements:
    4 caps free test

  22. Tex, how's the ankle? I rolled mine in a soccer game and it was forever before I was 100%. I hope yours is not as bad as mine, that would put a damper on the leg workouts.

    it's doing alright. Still fairly stiff, I've been trying to convince my roommate to go to the gym with me, then yesterday broke his finger so he can't grip anything.

    I'm going to be trying to head to the gym later tonight, but it all depends on how I feel.

  24. hey everyone, I'm still around and lifting. I've jsut been super busy so haven't had the chance to update lately. I weighed in last night at 172.2, so still up a couple lbs on an empty stomach.

    I'll hopefully be hitting back tonight (all depends on how my tutoring for finance goes and how comfortable with the material I am).

  25. I just had 2 tubs of Lit Up get here today as well as some HGHup, so looks like I may turn this into a Lit Up, HGHup, Free Test log. If so, I'll create a new one with the supplements in the actual title.

    Been a hell of a week exam wise, that's why I haven't been posting, but workout are going solid! Strength is definitely starting to come back, and I think a lot of the missing strength just had to do with my stabilizer muscles being non-existent. Spring break starts Monday and I'll be kicking it off with a demo in Houston if any of you guys want to come by.
