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


    Yooo, no clue how many of my old homies are still around these parts so I figure I'll give an introduction for all the new guys.

    I lifted seriously for about 1.5-2 years before going off to College and was able to achieve some pretty solid lifts for my weight. 315 for a last set on bench, 410 on squats, and a solid 8 pack of abs.

    Well since my hayday I've entered college and not done crap. As of today I activated a membership at Golds and am going to be working on getting myself into a routine and try to get my physique back to where it was.

    I have absolutely no clue what my lifts are going to look like either, and since I'll most likely have newb gains coming back to me, I'm going to be laying light on the supplements.

    Routine
    I really don't have a clue, I'm looking for a 3 day split + 1 day of cardio. My past favorites were 5x5 and supersets, but we'll see.

    Supplements
    Lit Up
    Free Test
    Protein

    Goals
    Lose some fat
    Upper Chest Growth (always been a VERY weak point of mine)
    Get lifts and aesthetics back to a satisfying point

    Depending upon how things go, I'll probably keep this going for multiple reviews and progress tracking.

    Yeah I got it. I like the break down, although I may change how the breaks are structured.

    Yeah, tell me about it. I just took pre pictures and compared them to my old and it's pretty dang bad... Phil can attest to that haha.

    Kaley and I are doing well, in a bit of a rough spot, but I think it's coming around. Like me she got a bit caught up with school, but she is trying to get back into things. I'm sure once she sees me getting back into the swing of things she'll kind of feed off of that.

    On a side note, what do you guys recommend as the Go-to protein? I've always used AllTheWHEY, ON, or XF but I'm just looking to see what else has been introduced to the market lately.

    It won't take long to get back into it once you do - trust me!

    Motivate each other, feed off positivity, get back into a routine, and you'll be fine.

    I use Muscle Pharm's MuscleGel Shots - I don't use protein powder any more. You could look into Primordial Peroformance's MAP, though. Or Gaspari Nutrition's MyoFusion as well.

    Those look interesting. I just remembered Kaley has some ATW peanut butter cup. Rosie, what flavor of the MuscleGel shots do you like the most? Looks extra convenient for school.

    Key Lime is my favourite, with Tropical Mango close behind. Yeah, they are very convenient See Rosie's Review of MuscleGel Shots (Key Lime flavour) for my complete thoughts on MuscleGel Shots.

    Good to see you back Tex, it has been a couple of years. I am sure things will come back pretty good, you are still in your prime!

    As far as protein I like NutraPro, Gaspari Myofusion and LG Lipotropic protein.

    Good Luck!

    Yup, I would say at least 1.5 years since I've really been a full fledged member here as well as seriously stepping my foot in a gym. I've done a few 1 time things, but then always had excuses.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Day 1

    So I figured I would give my new membership a try out tonight. Things didn't go as planned though. I had a weird feeling come over me in only 2 sets, so I decided not to take the chance and will just try again tomorrow.

    It was a bit of a hazy unclear feeling, my guess is it's something along the lines of my body not used to the kind of strain and pressure weight lifting applies on it.

    I had a nice 1 cup of rice/ and new york strip meal in my stomach as well, so I'll be trying it fasted tomorrow morning.

    Unfortunately my Lit Up isn't here yet, but I could really use it right now

    Yeah, it's that same thing where everything goes blurry and you kinda just lose thought process. I think it may be a combination of dehydration + I'm just not used to straining when lifting like I was previously.

    I know you know what you are doing, but I would start off with BB routines until you build strength. Those smaller stabilizer muscle groups might need some time before they are ready.

    Good point, my body isn't used to working like it was. Usually I would be laughing with what I'm about to say, but pretty sure 10-12 reps would have done me in at 55 lbs DB incline .

    It's a sad realization about how much I let myself go.

    Not sure if we ever became "friends," but I'm in the same boat you are in. I remember you being an active poster when I was active as well. It's been really hard getting back into things for me. It's kind of depressing to see how weak I have gotten.

    Right now, my only goal is to consistently go to the gym. I'm doing a 3 day split whole body routine.

    Anyway, I'll sub for the moral support. College sucks. lol

    I'm the exact same way. Gaining weight and strength is cool, but my only goal right now is to just be able to make the gym a part of my daily life.

    Official Day 1

    I just tried going to they gym, but it was way too busy so I'll be going back at around 10 CST. I went ahead and did a bit of cardio on the bike and some shoulder presses just to feel like I didn't waste my time.

    Will be updated on my chest workout later tonight! About to head to the local supp shops and see if I can pick up some protein for the time being.

    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!

    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.
