You're doing a contest Easy? Massive props to you sir! Hope Combustion exceeds your needs.
Welp, i'm at 9 weeks out from a contest that I'm starting to think i won't make contest shape in, so I'm kicking up what i'm doing a notch. BPS was nice enough to sponsor me a bottle of
Along with it, i'm using Genomyx HEAT, AI Sports Post , SNS and other goodies. The main other goodies are that I picked up 3 120ml bottles of the 1-Androsterone from AMS, so i'm going to be dosing it at 6ml a day for the next 2 months. Even if all this doesn't get me to contest shape, it should put me close. If I have to skip this year and wait till next, thats fine with me.
Workout is a 4 day split (chest/legs/back/shoulders), diet is varied but roughly 2500 calories and approx 40p/40f/20c as it just turns out I eat that way. So far i'm doing cardio only once a week for roughly an hour. I'm likely going to that do doing 20 minutes after each workout, and then 1 day do a separate hour. Hopefully the will help with that.
So far I started using Combustion on Monday. Comparing it to Vapo XT (which is what I was using with the exact same mix of other stuff), its a hair lighter on stim, but a bit higher on thermogenic. So seems like a nice product so far. I think if I were to use it as a solo preworkout though, i'd need 2 caps together.
Well, I am planning on doing a contest. So far though, i'm not at a point where i'm comfortable i'll come in lean enough. We'll see where I am a month from now.
Well, this week hasn't worked out so hot making it to the gym, but I did today at least. Took 2 Combustion preworkout, and that was plenty of energy. Weighed 193, so finally really back to pre-vacation level.
Shoulders today - today was first day my 15 year old daughter came along to gym, that was entertaining. She complained a bit about the exercises
hammer iso shoulder press - 80x12x12x9 70x9
behind back upright rows (smith, plates only) 70x10x10x10x9
machine lateral raise 125x10x8 110x9x7
db front raise 25x10x10x10
and then 20 minutes of moderate intensity cardio. Pouring sweat off me by midway through the workout, I was drenched by the end of cardio.
196 today, feeling good. Stopped smoking cigarettes friday, today will be the last day of terrible cravings.
db incline press 75x10 90x0 (failed to get into position, someone ran over to help, but was too late :P) 75x8 80x7 85x5. Pretty sure I could have hit 90x6 on that second set if I hadn't failed getting them up. db erectile dysfunction sigh
flat hammer press machine 180x9x8x4 140x7x8
triceps pushdown 160x9 150x9x9x7
cable crossover setting 8 -15x15x15
pretty nice, good pump, only had shoulder pain during the workout, nothing after which is fantastic. been doing external rotations with a band before the workouts now.
Good stuff Easy. I'm really enjoying Combustion so far. Good luck with the kicking cigs, I never smoked but chewed tobacco for about 5 years. Quitting that is probably the most difficult thing I've ever done.
Just to fill in some info on the smoking, I had smoked since I was 16, and quit back in 2004 so smoked about 20 years. In 2010 on vacation in Hawaii, I picked up a pack and continued through up till last week. The hard part is that my wife also smokes so we have to quit together or not at all. She was finally ready again. One thing that i'm not sure how its going to affect me though is smoking cigars. I've picked up the cigar habit, but that is a once or max twice a week sort of thing. We'll see how that goes.
Was 195 today, pretty ravenously hungry after my workout so I strayed a little foodwise (6 whole eggs + 3/4 cup brown rice).
hack squats 270x6 320x6 340x6 350x6 360x3 + fail. all were to the bumpstops
seated calf raise 90x10 135x10 160x10 180x10 205x5 and fail, couldn't get it high enough to lock it back in
hammer machine preacher curls 70x12x10x9x5 all full range of motion. I have a tendency with these to shorten the range of motion, not extending my arm to fully straight before the next rep.
and that was it. was still 45 minutes and I was beat and hungry.
I see a lot of guys cheat themselves on the preachers; good for you - gotta get that stretch at the bottom!
Good luck with the smoking cessation. I enjoy a cigar now and then on special occasions, I could see how even just giving that up would suck.

Solid log entries. Subbd.
Fudge, partially blew my diet today for lunch. Had 2 pieces of morsilla, and some bacalito, plus black beans + yellow rice and some amarillo. And I dont think anyone who knows what those all are is following this thread, I need to invite them
carb feast i take it? I knew what black beans and yellow rice are if that makes you feel any better
