  1. UPDATE:

    Thursday:

    Floor press with grey short bands and 120lbs of chains. Got up to 185 and just missed 205 by a little!! If i could have locked it out I would have had it but the bands caught up to me and it didnt budge. Not bad considering the strongest lift of the day was 225. So i gots room to improve but im getting stronger.

    Rest of the workout was long and brutal.

    Friday:
    Biceps...4 sets fat bar curl, 3 sets super set, 3 sets seated curl with dumbells. Then superset for traps. Then some abs.

    Saturday: EXTRA BRUTAL!!

    Dynamic lower body:
    was working most of the sets with 325 + 120lbs of chains. Got to my 8th set of and was only able to hit 1 of 2. So this was my breaking point. I hit a total of about 4-5 sets with the 325 when just a few weeks ago i couldnt hit that off the box for 1 set 1 rep. The rest of the workout including lunges, reverse hyperextensions, tire flips, good morning with bands, and pushing the prowler...and lets not forget abs.


    friday and saturday i was also helping my friends move. Friday pre-workout. Saturday post workout...by sunday i could hardly get out of bed for church i was so sore. Today im feeling better but my lower body is still sore.

  2. Awesome work Andres! I had a feeling it was one of those bars. Have never used them but have seen one or two people use them. Mostly power lifters.

  3. Makes sense. I dont see why a bodybuilder or recreational lifter would have need of this bar. It really doesnt allow you to focus on your legs at all, rather your form and smaller accessory muscles. Great for strengthening, not so much for building.

  4. Update:

    Yesterdays Dynamic work was solid. Was working far better and faster with the weight i was struggling with last week. Was hitting the speed i needed to be hitting.

    As far as my cut is coming along, its coming along quite nicely. I havent been anywhere close to being super meticulous but the fat is still coming off. Just being very sensible about amounts and what not. Making sure to get adequate protein. Ill have to find a camera and someone to take some pictures.

    Going to take a break soon from the Testopro, HGHpro, DAA, and LCLT. Im thinking about switching to Stoked, Glycobol and Anabeta. Run that for a bit, then take a break and hit up the stack im on now again.

  5. SOunds nice, I am interested in the Anabeta myself.

  6. Update: Max effort lower body deadlift

    I think its hilarious walking into the gym I said to myself, "Christ my back is all ****ed up today...I hope Im not hitting deadlifts today" Sure enough I walk in and its deadlift day.

    So even with my back not being 100% i pulled 500x1 easier then I have in the past. I went for 515 and I didnt get the lock out, so i was pretty pissed about that. But they pointed out my shortcomings and how i can improve my form to pull better. So in the end missing the lift taught me a lot.

    All in all it was a good workout. Some GHR, box jumps, light squats in the pit shark. Short and sweet.

    Almost forgot to mention Im pulling 500 on a bad day and im in th mid to low 180's. So i cant say ive gotten weaker. And I didnt even have to get that hyped to pull it. Just relying more on brute strength than in mental state.

  7. Nice work Andres! A 500 pull is pretty impressive, I think I am close but have never attempted it.

    Been a long time since I pulled like that and my 500 lb deads were done with straps... which adds to the lift no doubt..
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  9. first time i pulled 500 was with straps back my senior year in college i think.... But the minute i got serious about raw strength wraps where out and as some of you well know I very much struggle with my grip especially in the past. It's taken a good while...what close to a year or 2 to get back up to 500 with no wraps. And 500 use to be once every blue moon. Now its coming up more consistantly.

    Yesterday was my rest day. I had a good diet overall...till i had some cupcakes my friend made. Oh well I'll consider it a carb up for todays max effort madness lol.

  10. Pulling 500 raw is no joke for sure. Don't worry bout those cupcakes, one time won't hurt a thing and like you said will probably make for a better workout.

  12. Good Monday to everyone!!

    Here are some updates:

    Thursday was Max Effort Upper body:
    Incline with changes. Hit about 325-335(at the top) and missed 345.

    Friday:
    Accessory work

    Saturday:
    Lower Body Dynamic...str8 box squat
    This I noted a significant improvement. Before hand i was barely hitting 315 off the box for more then a rep or so once i got to the 5 set. Now I was hitting 345 for speed and went up to 365 off the box. At 365 i was a little slow then I would have liked so I dropped back down to 345. Though I could have stayed at 365...the point of dynamic day is speed. So i dropped the ego and the weight. Finished all 9 sets real strong. Hit some GHR, one leg hypers, and some other stuff i dont know the name to lol.


    Other Updates:
    I took a picture on the 22nd of how i was looking. I posted it on facebook and I'll post it here as well. It was in the wee morning hours. I was by no means dry, nor was the lighting very good but you can def see the improvements. I'll get a picture at the beginning of this cut and then post the progress pic. I'll probably take another progress pic in another 3-4 weeks. Needless to say, Im no longer shy about taking off my shirt. Im no Kleen(or DW...those guys are still way leaner and more shredded then me)...but im no longer a fatty.

    Diet:

    Fast breaker:
    2 turkey patties (70 grams of protein)
    1 package high fiber oats
    2 apricots

    Pre-lift:
    2 scoops maniac
    1 scoop RecoverPro
    3 grams DAA
    1 gram LCLT

    Intra-workout"
    3 scoops RecoverPro

    Post Workout: (~100 grams of protein)
    2 cups milk
    4 scoops MRI NO2 Charger
    2 scoops Ultimate nutrition Sensations 81
    2 frozen banana's
    Maybe some Bran Buds for more fiber

    After this meal I try to eat as much protein as possible...but after my workouts i can barely eat anything which is why i make the protein shake so big. Trying to force feed myself is much easier with liquid then with solid food.


    Today is Upper Body Dynamic. Lets see how this goes.

    Also Im looking to register for my first meet. Either December after finals or June/July once I finish my degree. Lets see how this plays out.

  14. Good stuff Andres, I too drink a decent amount of my protein requirements. Some people are whole food natzis. However I find that getting 1/3-1/2 of my protein from a shake aids in overall digestion. People hype the thermal effect of whole food but bottom line when it comes to complete proteins that is a whole food, just dehydrated. It still raises TEF because it is protein. I still get warmer all over having 70 grams of protein in a shake just like I do if I have a big steak. So thermally speaking I see no difference there. On top of that it has been shown that the same amount of protein in whey as in other whole food the whey protein users actually burned more fat. So much for the biblical adherence to the whole foods argument.

    I can't wait to see you do a meet. Happy that working out here has given you the confidence to make the jump.

    I tend to get hungry if too much of my protein comes from shakes so I would rather have steaks...
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  16. Well I would definitely opt for steak if that was what I was eating most of the time. I think the big reason I don't get hungry after is that when I have a shake it is ALMOST ALWAYS accompanied by an ounce of almonds, and or fibrous fruit. That fat and fiber give me the satiety that I would not get from a shake otherwise.

  17. What a week!! So busy I barely have time to sleep!

    Had my final yesterdau in Nutrition and pulled an A. So that class is done for now. Starting Physiology in the fall. Work is none stop. But lifting is still making progress.

    Monday:
    Upper Body Dynamic Bench: Str8 weight
    First time i hit this little over a month ago (less the 2 months) I was struggling to make speed with 205. On Monday I was hitting 225 for the proper speed( and little faster with maybe 30-45 second rest between sets. It was a 2 person rotation and he would go, I would go, He would go I would go and it went like this for 12 sets. 9 working sets and 3 warm up. Needless to say ive jumped up 20lbs AND if i rested more i couldnt have jumped up even more!

    Tuesday:
    Lower Body Max:
    Deadlift with trap bar. Went up to 485 and missed 505. Oh well. First time i ever deadlifted with a trap bar. Its gonna take a little getting use to.

    Wednesday: off

    Today upper body max effort. Ill update later.

    Sleep has been heavily compromised. But hey it happens sometimes.

  18. Isn't that trap bar a thing of beauty! I own one, love it, prefer it to regular deads because of how much it works the legs too. I can't think of another exercise that hits as much muscle as the trap bar dead lift.

  19. WOW! Andres your just killing it sir! Interested to see how that new stack your talking about treats you. Taurus has a goodie on the way for me, so look out old PR's....
    Come join me on my Olympus goodie run (Ostarine / Ep1c / Str3ngth / Sup3r PCT)

    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  21. haha oh snap!! Punthra i cant wait!!

    Here are some updates:

    Life is stupid busy...i really dont know how I manage to finish each day. Every second is filled with something to do. This is the reason why im not as active as I would like.

    But lift wise:

    Thursday: Max Effort Upper
    Football bar bench: 310x1...335x0...failed here

    Friday: Accesory work

    Saturdayynamic Lowe body
    Went as high as 375 for my last two working sets for speed. This is a 100lbs increase in my speed work on my last 2 sets from the first time i did str8 box squats for speed 6 weeks ago. I would say that the new training is really taking my strength to a new level. Its far more consistent where I can walk in any given day and hit a certain goal.

    Sunday Rest

    Been doing a lot of outside work...pushing prowlers, pulling sleds, etc etc. This is leaving me extra gased and really working on my posterior chain. My glutes, hams and calves are extra burned out at the end of each lift.

    Also Im doing box jumps with the 30in box. I started out with the 24 in box and now im using the 30.

    As far as Stack go:
    Favorite Stack to Date: 10/10

    AI DAA
    AI LCLT
    Testopro
    HGHpro
    RecoverPro
    Maniac


    If you want to add more to that I recommend:
    Fadogia
    Erase
    Powerfull pre-lift


    Fat Loss Stack:
    Adipoxil+Dexaprine+Alpha T-2= Great stack! Treated me very well. Not sure if Ill use this specific stack again. But i may. Needless to say this stack had me sweating buckets...literally. Lift days i lose 5-10 lbs of water weight per lift. Ridiculous.

    New Stack:
    STOKED
    GLYCOBOL
    RecoverPro
    Anabeta
    Lean Xtreme
    Fat Smack

    Running this stack for 8 weeks then I want to go back to my above fave stack. I really didnt wanna get off it but its about time to cycle.

    In about 2 weeks I thinking about adding 3z occasionally.

  22. Dynamic Upper Body: Str8 bench

    Worked out with 235 for most of the working sets but by the last set i was at 245. Speed stayed in the proper range. Last set with 245 the first rep was slow but the last two reps where good.

    Lots of ab work yesterday. Obliques, planks(2 sets at 1.5 mintes and 1 set at 2 minutes), superset leg lifts with weighted/seated crunches.


    Weight:
    I seem to be floating now up at 185-187. This is not post-workout weight which will be substantially lower due to the amount i sweat.

  23. Nice updates and that AI stack is SICK!!!! John was nice enough to send me some samples just got them. Going to start sampling them when they fit into my nutrient timing.

    Yah I will be hitting a lot of those in PCT, I am already on testopro and using recoverpro, I will add DAA, and Stoked to that for sure.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  25. Thanks Kleen, hopefully it will continue to help me yeild more and more strength gains!

    DW why dont you add in some LCLT?


    Updates:

    Tuesday: Max Effort Lower Body
    Deadlift with reverse grey bands
    600x1
    615x1...hitched so it didnt count

    Could have gone heavier but didnt want to get into the bad habit of hitching on heavy weight

    Wednesday Off

    Thursday: Max Effort
    Fat Bar+yellow bands+2 board press
    Bar weight not counting bands:
    300x1
    320x0...close but no cigar. shouldnt have made such a big jump


    Abs are coming in a little better. Not a 6 pack yet but the 4 pack is there. Just a small layer of fat left to reveal the abs. Vascularity is better then its been in years. Not quite road map veins but im not smooth anymore.

    Thank you for sticking around guys! More updates to come!
