    Burning off the fat, with BPS Combustion and more (sponsored)


    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 Combustion


    Along with it, i'm using Genomyx HEAT, AI Sports Post Cycle Support, SNS TTA-500 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 reverse that do doing 20 minutes after each workout, and then 1 day do a separate hour. Hopefully the Combustion 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, 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.

  7. 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.

    i'll stick with drinking though, I can't be a quitter on everything

    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.

    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.

    I've kind of settled on Casa Torano brand either their Casa Maduro in a Toro size as my cigar of choice now too http://www.torano.com/toranobrands/casamaduro . I think though that smoking cigars every now and then shouldn't particularly make me relapse on cigarettes, we'll see.

    I was supposed to enter contests on either june 4th or 11th but it turned out that was the saturday my timeshare week started + ended, so I couldn't do those. but there is a local contest the last weekend in August that i'm shooting for. I just don't know if i'll actually make it to where I wont feel embarassed on stage. If not, i'm definitely doing it next year.

    Torano's are nice. I've had their Robusto, but it wasn't the maduro. I recently tried Diesel's Unholy ****tail and was really impressed - very dark with tons of flavor. I was reticent because the brand has such a "bro" feeling to it, but I'm glad I went ahead and tried it anyways.

    196 today. took 2 Combustion preworkout, that makes for a nice workout other than the volume of sweat

    behind neck wide grip pulldowns 70x10 100x10x10x10x10
    deadlifts 225x6x8 275x6 295x3 225x6
    db preacher curls 35x8x8x8

    and my forearms + biceps and respective tendons told me it was time to stop. I went to the preacher curls to give my lower back a little break as I was going to do pendlay rows, but after the curls didn't feel like doing anything. Still felt like it was an effective workout.

    196 today dammit. after coming in second place in a pool tournament last night, I came home and my daughter had made a batch of organic brownies and I proceeded to drunkenly eat about half of them. The were good, all organic ingredients and she used my coconut oil in place of vegetable oil so a nice coconutty taste in the background too.

    shoulder workout today
    single arm seated db press 50x12x10x10x10
    behind back upright row 50x12 70x9 50x10x9
    Skullcrushers 70x12x12x10x10
    db front raises 20x10x10x10x10
    seated dip machine 160x12x11x10

    Feeling good. Got my MRI results back though, and the recommendation is to either start lifting "girlie style" or to get surgery :P

    Yesterday did chest a bit differently since I was thinking about the MRI
    machine fly 120x14x12x12x9
    reverse grip smith incline press 90x11 110x8 90x10x10x7 70x8x8
    tricep pushdown 150x10 160x8 140x10x7
    cable crossover setting 8x12 setting 6x15x15x15

    That's sucky man. I'm actually coming back myself from a long layoff due to injury. No fun. I figure it will take me a year to get back to where I was in terms of body composition and strength. So are you going to do the surgery or kinda wait and see?

    welp, today I went with intentions of doing legs + shoulders and ended up with a sort of decent quad workout only...

    v-squats 270x5 320x5 360x5 410x5 450x5x5 500x4

    and somehow between talking to someone beforehand and the long rests between some of those sets I burned all my time and had to go. still was nice though. I may do some light shoulder work here at the house, I have the powerblocks so I can do a bit.
