    Thanks for the info Green, cool you know how to do tats as well just about everything else. My sister lives up in Scarboro or however it is spelled a couplehours out from there. She tried to get me to move up to the Raleigh Durham Research circle a while back when i got laid off but I found a job quickly here.

    Thanks for the great the advice. I will definitely start with the P90X, due to the fact that I have not done that style of workout since the military. Looking forward to the updates.

    Any time bro! I know exactly where you're talking about, Im pretty sure you spelled it correctly. Glad you found a job so quick in this crap hole economy...would have been sweet to have you in Durham though.

    Glad to help Meister, you'll be a machine after P90 and Hyperfitness.

    Wake 1000hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-Beat-Alanine/1-Multi-V

    I could have slept all day. I think the only reason I finally woke up is because I had to pee so bad, and my back was killing me.

    Meal 1 1330hrs:
    734 calories
    -10oz chicken breast
    -4tbs hummus
    -1 cup home made chili
    -1oz tortilla chips
    -3 tbsp salsa

    Supplementation 1600hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-CEE/3-Beta-Alanine

    Training:

    Due to my gym being closed I decide to stay home, clean the house, and start packing for my future move.

    Meal 2 1630hrs:
    715 calories
    -6oz chicken breast
    -8oz sirloin tip steak
    -1 portabella mushroom
    -2 scoop whey protein
    -1 piece aLyne’s cheesecake (with whey protein powder baked in)

    Supplementation 1730hrs:
    3-CEE

    Meal 3 2035hrs:
    337 calories
    -4 eggs (only 2 yolk)
    -1 scoop whey protein

    Calories: 1,786
    Fat: 54.4g (27%)
    Carb: 74.7g (17%)
    Protein: 254.7g (56%)

    1-Reduce XT before bed

    I was out of town this weekend which made things rocky. I wasnt too thrilled with my nutrition, but manged to stick fairly close to my usuall nutrient timing. Again this is another instance of life happening, so I just had to make the best of a situation. We were invited to go and tailgate/watch the Clemson home opener on Saturday with LittleGreen’s family. We all know the quality of tailgate food and beverage, Ill leave it at that, I did have a couple beers, but I was definitely well reserved in the alcohol consumption department.

    My supplementation remained the same throughout the weekend. Even with the irregularities in nutrition, I’d say I havent noticed any decline in my physique (which I usually can in situation such as this). I’m looking very vascular especially in my arms and starting to see some increased veinage in my quads extending to the knee caps (nothing extreme, but theyre there).

    Im looking forward to getting back into my normal training and nutrition protocols. Its looking like Ill have begin the Iron Warrior Protocol on Wednesday to due obligation with my job tomorrow (both meetings and sports duties in one day...sucks).

    Good job on getting back on track with the diet! It can be hard after a short unplanned "break" to get back on track! And if you wait too long those wheels fall off the wagon pretty fast hehehe.

    man those meals sounds good. Iron warrior eh? I enjoy reading your workouts. Freakin insane!!

    Way To Be!!!

    I know how difficult it is to get back on track after a short break. I just returned from a 7 day cruise (ate like a horse and worked out once (horrible). Today I tried to get back into the groove of eating right and realized that we needed to do some shopping. I did not go to the gym, but I did mow the yard (my gym was closed today also). I'm hoping that I too will be able to get back on the horse tomorrow. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks KJF, so far so good. I seem to be leaning out consistently, and hope to keep it that way.

    Veinage in quads is definitely a good sign man, i swear vascularity is awesome. It's like it "Hulkifies" your physique and adds that "kickass" look to it. Keep up that dedication man with all your doing + training this is really inspiring and shows how focused you are! Great work!

    Wake 0630hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-Beat-Alanine/1-Multi-V

    Felt good this morning a little groggy, but good. Made it through the day fairly well without being hungry and with no after fast break hunger. Sports duty was cancelled today due to weather so I got to start Kleen's Iron Warrior Protocol today.

    Meal 1 1300hrs:
    511 calories
    -10oz chicken breast
    -4tbs hummus
    -1 piece Layne's cheesecake (with whey powder baked in)
    -1 portabella mushroom

    Pre-Workout supplementation 1600hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-CEE/3-Beta-Alanine
    1 scoop of Peach Tea Lit-Up

    Training 1630hrs:

    WW1: 2 Work Sets to Form Failure 6-8 reps, second Set is a double SSUF (Strip Set until Failure)

    Ex. Warm-up Set, Work Set, Work Set > SSUF > SSUF

    Flat Barbell Bench Press,195x8, 245x6 , 245x6 > 205x5 > 135x9
    I got an awesome chest pump form this. I really had to push at the end for the 9 reps at 135. This was the first time I have used this protocol so Im still working out the bugs with weights and remembering/writing down SSUF reps...Ill get it.

    Bent Over Barbell Row, 100x8, 195x8, 195x8 > 175x10 > 155x10
    Great pump in the arms and lats here the working sets felt nice and challenging, and the SSUF sets demanded some extra will to muscle out the last reps.

    Standing Arnold Presses (elbows should be back a little at end of movement and hands wider than shoulders to keep tension), 25x8, 50x8, 50x8 > 40x5 > 30x4
    This is actually a new movement for me. I think thr 50lb working sets were a bit much, so I will go a bit lower next week.

    DB Drag Curls, 25x8, 40x8, 40x8 > 35x8 > 25x8
    These are new for me as well, but awesome! I wishing I would have done these earlier. The movement and isolation in this exercise is next to nothing Ive done in the past.


    Leg Press, 360x8, 630x8, 630x8 > 540x10 > 450x10 > 360x10
    I added an extra SSUF set here, beacuse it felt so damn good. I could barely pull myself out of the leg press...too good, never recieved a pump like this off this machine!

    DB Step up with Knee Lift (each side = 1rep), 20x8, 35x8, 35x8 > 30x8 > 25x8
    Really had to turn up the intensity here. I basically battled through to the end with these, I was pretty much exhausted by the time I got here, and dug deep to finish strong.

    I changed some of the exercises to meet my needs. Kleen’s original plan is outstanding, and I would have followed it verbatim if my gym had been properly equipped. Again Im new at this so I need some tweaking to find the perfect weight ranges and percentages, but this is going to be one hell of a protocol.

    Meal 2 1800hrs:
    1,147 calories
    -4 eggs (only 2 yolk)
    -2 scoop whey protein
    -4oz sirloin tip steak
    -1.5 cups leaf salad
    -1 turkey wrap
    -2tbsp ranch dressing (I just had to!)

    Post-Workout Supplementation
    3-CEE
    1 scoop RecoverPro

    Meal 3 2045hrs:
    426 calories
    -1 navel orange
    -4oz sirloin tip steak
    -2 scoop whey protein

    Calories: 2,084
    Fat: 73.9g (31%)
    Carb: 90.6g (17%)
    Protein: 273g (52%)

    1-Reduce XT before bed

    Feeling Awesome! Lifting heavy today after two weeks of hyperfitness really was a nice change of pace. It seems that I really didn't lose any strength while using the full body protocol. Im looking forward to Kleen's Protocol and really hammering those heavy lifts and strip sets...as of right now The Iron Warrior is THE BOMB!

    Bent Over Barbell Row, 100x8, 195x8, 195x8 > 175x10 > 155x10
    Great pump in the arms and lats here the working sets felt nice and challenging, and the SSUF sets demanded some extra will to muscle out the last reps.

    Standing Arnold Presses (elbows should be back a little at end of movement and hands wider than shoulders to keep tension), 25x8, 50x8, 50x8 > 40x5 > 30x4
    This is actually a new movement for me. I think thr 50lb working sets were a bit much, so I will go a bit lower next week.

    DB Drag Curls, 25x8, 40x8, 40x8 > 35x8 > 25x8
    These are new for me as well, but awesome! I wishing I would have done these earlier. The movement and isolation in this exercise is next to nothing Ive done in the past.


    Leg Press, 360x8, 630x8, 630x8 > 540x10 > 450x10 > 360x10
    I added an extra SSUF set here, beacuse it felt so damn good. I could barely pull myself out of the leg press...too good, never recieved a pump like this off this machine!

    DB Step up with Knee Lift (each side = 1rep), 20x8, 35x8, 35x8 > 30x8 > 25x8
    Really had to turn up the intensity here. I basically battled through to the end with these, I was pretty much exhausted by the time I got here, and dug deep to finish strong.

    I changed some of the exercises to meet my needs. Kleen’s original plan is outstanding, and I would have followed it verbatim if my gym had been properly equipped. Again Im new at this so I need some tweaking to find the perfect weight ranges and percentages, but this is going to be one hell of a protocol.

    Feeling Awesome! Lifting heavy today after two weeks of hyperfitness really was a nice change of pace. It seems that I really didn't lose any strength while using the full body protocol. Im looking forward to Kleen's Protocol and really hammering those heavy lifts and strip sets...as of right now The Iron Warrior is THE BOMB!
    Sick workout green! Won't be long now before you hit your goals

    Felt good this morning a little groggy, but good. Made it through the day fairly well without being hungry and with no after fast break hunger. Sports duty was cancelled today due to weather so I got to start Kleen's Iron Warrior Protocol today.

    Meal 1 1300hrs:
    511 calories
    -10oz chicken breast
    -4tbs hummus
    -1 piece Layne's cheesecake (with whey powder baked in)

    Ex. Warm-up Set, Work Set, Work Set > SSUF > SSUF

    Drag curls are one of my favorite bicep moves. Really does a great job of isolating the bicep and taking the anterior delt out of the movement.

    Thanks bro, I totally understand where you're coming from. Even with a full gym I have to change things up because they are not well equipped.

    Yeah I try to get between 2200-2500 on builds, but Im ok with a little less as Im trying to strip down.

    Its probably my new favorite lift. The movement feels unbelievable, and triggers so much more than just the bicep.

    I did them with DBs, and kept my elbows way back, but I think they are commonly done with a straight bar. IMO either way you decide shold render excellent results.

    Wake 0630hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-Beat-Alanine/1-Multi-V

    Meal 1 1300hrs:
    511 calories
    -10oz chicken breast
    -4tbs hummus
    -1 piece Layne's cheesecake (with whey powder baked in)
    -1 portabella mushroom

    Pre-Workout supplementation 1600hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-CEE/3-Beta-Alanine
    1 scoop of Peach Tea Lit-Up

    Training 1630hrs:

    WW2: 2 Work Sets to Form Failure 6-8 reps, second Set is a double SSUF (Strip Set until Failure)

    Ex. Warm-up Set, Work Set, Work Set > SSUF > SSUF

    Chin Ups, BWx8, 50x8, 50x8 > 40x6 >30x5
    Felt strong on the chins, 50x8s are no joke. I really focused on a good negative, close to GVT style timing.

    Decline Bench, 135x8, 245x8, 245x8 > 205x6 >135x4
    This is an exercise I don’t normally do. I really had a nice pump when finished although it took a little time to get balanced. Overall a good addition to the protocol.

    Wide Grip Upright Rows, 135x8, 195x8, 195x8 > 175x10 >155x11
    I always have good power here, and I pushed to really crank out some high rep failures. I use more of a clean movement with these so its more of an explosive row, but still effective.

    T-Cups, The only reference I could find to this exercise was more of a stretch. I did 4 sets of 8 on each side holding no weight. The stretch felt really good, even more so because of the awesome pump I had acquired as a result of the previous lifts. If there is a heavy lift called a T-Cup, please inform me!

    Squats, 135x8, 315x8, 315x8 > 295x9 > 275x10
    What can I say? Always essential, these were not fun at all especially in the SSUF. Again I focused on more of a GVT style timing.

    Stiff Leg Deads, 135x8, 225x8, 225x8 > 205x9 > 195x15
    I had some serious enegy at the end here and cranked out the reps. I was thinking I had 20 lbs less on the bar so it seems my mind took over and said 15 reps was a good place to stop on the last SSUF.

    Awesome pumps today once again. I did skip a rest day so I could get on schedule with the way the protocol was written. Tommorow will be a rest (active recovery day). I am experiencing some soreness...which I really enjoy and loving the challenge of the SSUF!

    Meal 2 1800hrs:
    951 calories
    -6 eggs (only 2 yolk)

    With the Iron Warrior protocol there is a relationship between mind and muscle. The mind tells you that as you strip off the sets to what seems like lower weight the lift should become easier. The body says that as the weight gets ligther the lift should become easier. As a result IMO the body and mind push harder to attain reps that one would normaly be able to attain at those lower weights even though the body may be incapable of handeling such a demand...This to me as a result should render serious growth...we shall see.

    Nice work Green! Way to kill the workout. For those of you wanting to incorporate the DB Drag curls they are a bit different that BB drag curls you pull your elbows far back and try to move the db in an almost perfect verticle line with the centerline of your body, pulling the elbows back that far completely disengages the anterior delts giving the biceps the laser focus intensity they crave. Give it a shot and your biceps will love / hate you.

    T-Cups are basically doing a front raise bringing the weight down in front of you but not all the way down just the slightest bit in front of you and off of your hips to keep the tension on the shoulders then do a lateral raise, come down again but not quite all the way to the hips and change direction back to the front so the entire set the tension NEVER comes of the shoulders. One rep is up to the front down, then up to the side and down.

    Your shoulders will burn like crazy and you will experience a pump like you probably have never experienced in your shoulders before. Use strength to move the weights not momentum, and be tough it will burn but the bowling balls connecting your arms to you traps will be worth it at the end of the set.

    I can't wait to try those tomorrow, Thanks for that description seems like it would work really really well. I need some new bi exercises!

Give it a shot and your biceps will love / hate you.

    T-Cups are basically doing a front raise bringing the weight down in front of you but not all the way down just the slightest bit in front of you and off of your hips to keep the tension on the shoulders then do a lateral raise, come down again but not quite all the way to the hips and change direction back to the front so the entire set the tension NEVER comes of the shoulders. One rep is up to the front down, then up to the side and down.

    Your shoulders will burn like crazy and you will experience a pump like you probably have never experienced in your shoulders before. Use strength to move the weights not momentum, and be tough it will burn but the bowling balls connecting your arms to you traps will be worth it at the end of the set.
    Thank you for the clarification. I searched for a good bit to find this guy with no luck. I didnt want to be a pain in your a$$ and start lighting you with questions, so again thanks Kleen...awesome protocol!

    No problem, I could have sworn I put that in the document but I have a few versions I typed up and probably just didn't put it in there.

    I'm digging the diet Bro, I mean honestly that is probably looking very close to what I will be doing once I hit my mark and I'm looking to maintain, I just might up it a tad more, but then again, I am not sure what day it is for you, as in... burn day, maintenance day, bulk day, don't you vary the diet/calories day by day just a little? I mean that is what I think I have learned from creeping around and reading what everyone is posting about lean gains and stuff!

    Pre-Workout supplementation 1600hrs:
    1-Reduce XT/3-CEE/3-Beta-Alanine
    1 scoop of Peach Tea Lit-Up

    Training 1630hrs:

    WW2: 2 Work Sets to Form Failure 6-8 reps, second Set is a double SSUF (Strip Set until Failure)

    Ex. Warm-up Set, Work Set, Work Set > SSUF > SSUF

    Chin Ups, BWx8, 50x8, 50x8 > 40x6 >30x5
    Felt strong on the chins, 50x8s are no joke. I really focused on a good negative, close to GVT style timing.

    Decline Bench, 135x8, 245x8, 245x8 > 205x6 >135x4
    This is an exercise I don’t normally do. I really had a nice pump when finished although it took a little time to get balanced. Overall a good addition to the protocol.

    Wide Grip Upright Rows, 135x8, 195x8, 195x8 > 175x10 >155x11
    I always have good power here, and I pushed to really crank out some high rep failures. I use more of a clean movement with these so its more of an explosive row, but still effective.

    T-Cups, The only reference I could find to this exercise was more of a stretch. I did 4 sets of 8 on each side holding no weight. The stretch felt really good, even more so because of the awesome pump I had acquired as a result of the previous lifts. If there is a heavy lift called a T-Cup, please inform me!

    Squats, 135x8, 315x8, 315x8 > 295x9 > 275x10
    What can I say? Always essential, these were not fun at all especially in the SSUF. Again I focused on more of a GVT style timing.

    Stiff Leg Deads, 135x8, 225x8, 225x8 > 205x9 > 195x15
    I had some serious enegy at the end here and cranked out the reps. I was thinking I had 20 lbs less on the bar so it seems my mind took over and said 15 reps was a good place to stop on the last SSUF.

    Awesome pumps today once again. I did skip a rest day so I could get on schedule with the way the protocol was written. Tommorow will be a rest (active recovery day). I am experiencing some soreness...which I really enjoy and loving the challenge of the SSUF!

    With the Iron Warrior protocol there is a relationship between mind and muscle. The mind tells you that as you strip off the sets to what seems like lower weight the lift should become easier. The body says that as the weight gets ligther the lift should become easier. As a result IMO the body and mind push harder to attain reps that one would normaly be able to attain at those lower weights even though the body may be incapable of handeling such a demand...This to me as a result should render serious growth...we shall see.

    You are nothing short of amazing!! Very proud of you!

    Thank you sir, yeah that was a burn/build day since I didn't take a rest between workouts. I'd like to get my build up around 2500, and I may thrown in a weekly refeed to around 3500 cals or so to give me a kick since I'm so restricted. So far the protocol I'm using is working well and giving results...so all is well.

    Man I kill some hummus!! I use it as a sauce! Its awesome mixed in with brown rice, used as a dip for chicken and steak, mixed with tuna (instead of may...sooo good), even mixed in with eggs (scrambled, after being cooked). I even started microwaving it and mixing it with hot sauce...I know sounds gross, but it actually thins out and is awesome to dip meats in. VERSATILE!

    Feeling great, but ready for bed. Had a great workout today shedding some serious sweat. Nutriton is still where I need it to be, but I may try to get a few more carbs (not for energy purposes) and lower the fat a bit. Im also thinking of throwing in a once a week re-feed day since I am so restricted. This may or may not work for me, but its worth a try just to really make sure the metabolism is cranking at optimum levels.
