Today was heavy legs . . . it was an extremely long day (not even counting work), and I was infuriated to a point before going to the gym. So much so that I had literally said to myself that I was going to train stupidly (with weight) today and see if I would fail. Not the smartest thing Ive ever done (lol) but it proved to give my legs one hell of a training session.
Lower Body Power Day
- Pressing Power Movement: Squats
bar x15, bar x10, 135x8, 225x5, 315x3, 325x2 drop 225x3, 315x2 drop 275x3 drop 225x5 drop 135x15
- Assistance pulling movement: Deadlifts
135x5, 225x5, 315x2, 405x1, 425x1 => again, just thought Id throw them in to see how they felt after squats. felt better than last week.
- Assistance pressing movement: Hack Squats
90x8, 180x6, 250x6, 270x6 => 3 plates on each side of the hack squat, felt beastly
- Assistance extension movement: Leg extensions
200x8, 250x8 (rack), 220x8
- Assistance pulling/curling movement: Lying leg curls
120x8, 145x8, 145x6.5 drop 120x4
- Auxiliary calf movement: Standing calf raise (machine)
300x10, 400x8x3 => (racked)
- Auxiliary calf movement: Seated calf raise (plate loaded)
90x10x4, 45x10 single calf raises
Felt real good today during my workout despite my day being in the ****ter. I'll see if this continues tomorrow with heavy chest. FINALLY working out with my partner so no more of this 5 rep heavy set bull**** . . . going 3 rep sets, and heaviest is going to failure .
Honestly, if what I saw/felt today continues tomorrow, it may be reason enough to pick up another bottle (as I think I have ~1 week left)

great news on the increases I had no doubts this stuff would deliver
08-27-2011 06:47 PM
Well, working out with my old workout partner was pretty epic today. we both took today as an intense cheat day, so Ive probably had about 5k cals already lol. did heavy chest at gold's gym today , focused more on my upper chest
* Incline Bench Press
bar x15, 135x8, 185x5, 205x3, 215x3, 225x1 (PR)
* Flat Bench Press
bar x15, 135x8, 185x3, 225x3, 235x3 => focused more on incline today
Incline dB Flys
* Hammer Strength Incline Chest Press (plate loaded)
90x5, 180x6, 230x7, 230x7
* Cable Flys on Incline Bench
35x8, 35x8, 30x8, 30x8, 20x15, 20x20ish (lost track of reps, starting doing half reps, whatev)
* Pec Deck Flys (put arms up higher on the bars to hit upper chest more)
dont remember weight x dont remember reps x 3 sets (lol)
* Rope Climbing (without using legs, approx 20ft up)
1 climb up/down (for lulz)
* Burnout: Incline Bench Press
135x20, 135x16 (went past failure)
Crazy workout today. Im still not used to having a spotter so I didnt utilize as much as I should have, but I managed to keep up with my old workout partner weight-wise which is good (he's on test/dbol and is 6'2'' 193 at like 5%bf lol)
Dont know if today was enough to warrant the purchase of another bottle, I think Im good with hormonal stuff after this run for a good while (not meant as a bashing of the product by any means, just what I think in general)
Obv, I will finish this run (duh) and run through my reversitol v2 + daa (+ maybe testalensis) while I increase my cals like a boss.
But, I am getting ahead of myself . . . we still have more than a week of this stuff rite here! Let's do this.
edit: oh, I transfered the remainder of my 5aOHP to a mini shaker cup because my metered dropper could no longer reach the liquid. I have it sealed in my fridge for storage for the remainder of my run (unless of course this is not a good idea . . . in which case I will simply leave it at room temp like before

Everyone's flipping out about it up here, when in reality all that we're getting is mediocre winds and rain. they shut down the mall (which my gym is in) in the middle of my second exercise . It was only an upper back day but Im still pretty ticked.
What I did do . . .
* Bent over bb rows
135x10, 225x5, 245x4 (grip f'ed up), 245x5 drop 225x3, 225x4 (FUARKING GRIP, yes hurricane's fault as well )
* Nautilus Lat Pulldown (plate loaded)
90x8, 180x8, 230x8 . . . and thats it

Not going to give a full update today, did bi's and tri's heavy, as well as finished up some back from yesterday
Notables were going 225x3 on cgbp, up from last week and felt pretty easy. If I trusted the kid that was spotting me I wouldve gone for another but meh.
Standing bicep curls were better as well. Stayed at 115 for 3 sets at 5, 5, 4 reps. More total weight moved compared to last week.
Got my physical today . . . the doctor took my bp through 2 shirts right after I gave blood on the same arm. Wound up being 140/70 ish . . . to which not a single f was given. Last time I took my bp it was 110/60 so Im pretty sure she just f'ed up the test. I'll have the real doctor do it again properly when I follow up on friday.
Oh, and I weighed in at 167 this morning . . . fully clothed, with at least 1L of water in me desperately needing to pee, lol. Definitely some weight gain, but I'll need to narrow it down this weekend. Im guessing I'll be ~162/163 dry post morning pee.

Had some good fun with hypertrophy legs today. Decided to go heavy (5reps) on some of the movements
- Lower Body Power Exercise speed work: Squats
bar x13, bar x13, 135x8, 225x3x6
- Hypertrophy pressing movement: Front Squats
135x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5 PR

- Icarian Super Squat Machine (emulated back squats, plate loaded)
90x5, 180x5, 270x5, 320x5, 540x6 => Never done these before so idk if they're good or not, lol. PR'd technically though.
- Hypertrophy curling movement: Lying Hamstring Curls
125x15, 110x15, 100x10 drop 90x5
- Hypertrophy calf movement: Seated calf raises (plate loaded)

- Hypertrophy calf movement: Calf raises on leg press machine (30s rest in between sets)
300x10, 400x8, 300x10
Not really too much to say today, got my PR on front squats (I was going atg btw) which was pretty sweet considering it was after my working sets of back squats. I had some fun on the super squat machine (legs were shaking getting those last reps up). Hamstrings were pumped as hell doing lying leg curls, which is usually bad as that means they are on the verge of cramping up for me. Thankfully I finished my workout and stretched everything out so I'm all good now .

Decided to kill my shoulders today. Went well, lol

All and all good stuff, nothing huge, just good strength and very nice vascularity/pump.

Figures the last day on 5aOHP I get some pretty significant strength increases . Oh well, these things happen.
DAA+Testalensis 100 (lol) starts tomorrow. Im going to try loading at 6g / day for a week or so to see if I notice anything different from 3g/day. testalensis will be run at 3caps/day.
Will get my final review up tomorrow along with my after pictures and weight. Although, I weighed in at 163 this morning, so that will probably be the same in the morning, lol.
09-02-2011 07:41 PM
Final Review is inbound with after pics (kind of disappointing with the pics, mostly due to my phone, not the results )
Just wanted to say that my squats today were alright, same as last week.
