  1. 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.

    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.

  12. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Man, I took all 4 caps of Free test today on an empty stomach... never doing that again haha!

    I'm going to try and hit them gym later tonight for a purely BB chest workout, but not sure if I'll make it due to a late night group meeting for a project.

  25. 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.
