P5sky Gets SWOLE with TestoPro x 3 (Sponsored)

Page 3 of 9 First 12345 ... Last

  1. heading to the local sporting goods store to pick up some ankle weights after my workout, maybe I'll get 2 sets so my wife can join the MADNESS! As I progress I will look into a weighted vest to increase overall wt, not just leg wt.

  4. Day 29

    My legs weren't feeling bad after the last leg workout and they felt pretty good today, still feel like a wimp with 135lbs on the bar. Next leg workout I will push it harder at with more wt but at 10-12 reps. After they are really adjusted to working hard I will go for some 6-8 rep sets and really push some wt . . . I hope. I really pushed it with my shoulders by upping the wt in each exercise and still do solid reps. A lot of times I am fatigues after going heavy on mil press so I keep lat/front raises at the same wt as previous workouts, but this time I just went for it and took care of business.

    Workout-Legs/Shoulder


    Squats
    95x10/10
    135x10/10/10/10
    I'll keep upping the wt until it is difficult, but taking it slowly

    Military Press
    135x12
    155x10
    165x6
    175x6/5/5

    Superset- Lat Raises/Front Raises
    -Lat 35x12/12/12
    -Frt 35x12/12/12

    DB Upright Rows
    50x8/8/8

  5. Legs go up really fast especially squats once you get the feeling down very well. Make sure you are really flexing your whole body tightening your core and every muscle of your back and arms. Once you tighten your whole body and learn to push your butt out and do good hip drive you will be increasing every week no problem.. keep it up man!

    Thanks Dave! I have good form and really see the striations in my chest and shoulders come out so I know I am focused and flexed. I've just taken too much time away from squats when I was focusing on cycling & running for triathlons. I did not want to squat before a long run or ride and perform poorly in my necessary cardio routine. I'm also gearing up for a soccer tournament in mid-Jan so I dont want to be hurting when I show up for scrimmages and practices, it is tough to keep my leg workouts balanced.

    Gotchya didnt realize you were a runner/triathlete.. I was a long distance runner before I started lifting seriously and switched over to bodybuilding. I understand the issues of how squatting can interfere with that it will probably be tough to increase to high weights on squats at least I was never able to when I was running 5 - 8 miles a day.

  9. I'm glad I was more of a 400m guy, nothing but good news from me about running the 400m and squats.

    Trust me, I am NOT running 5-8 miles/day . . . I go for 3-5 maybe once/week but also have practice & games. Then as we get into spring I will start cycling 1-2 days/week so I dont get many opportunities to blast my legs to get them HYUUGE.

  14. lookin solid and strong in your pics bro keep it up

  15. It was tough getting out of bed this morning, my body was ACHING. My back is sore, my legs are sore . . . if those 2 are hurting then it's gonna be a painful day. Fortunately a long, hot shower loosened me up and I'm gonna get in some BCAAs to help with recovery. I am going 3 days in a row which I normally do not do, but the next couple of days will be busy so I'll get my rest then.

    Today I am working chest and biceps and going low-rep/hi wt. We'll see how the strength gains are going over the next few weeks as I get back to test my bench at 225, several weeks ago I got 8 reps so I'm planning on 10+ reps.

    Can't wait for TestoPro to kick in.

  17. Day 30

    Quick workout bit I went heavy and was exhausted at the end. Still gaining strength, now I just need to focus on my eating habits to put on good weight. My eating habits are the worst when I am not working . . . no routine I go back next Wed so I will have a better diet on a daily basis.

    This was the first time I took Glycobol with my preworkout meal, I had a yam and turkey, usually take it with breakfast and dinner. The bicep pump was significant, even on bench warmup sets I could feel the pump.

  21. DOMS are DOMinating me!!!! After working out MTW I am hurting, especially lower back and legs. Did deadlifts on Monday, then squats on Tuesday, then heavy bench on Wednesday. Definitely time to give the CNS a break, going to Hollywood to pickup a few cases of wine, go to lunch, and see a movie at a very nice movie theatre . . . you get to choose your seats when you purchase your tickets. I got FRONT ROW . . . YES!!! JK, it's not a concert.

    Time to get in some carbs and aminos to help in recovery.

  23. Whoa!!!! I should get bonus points from my wife . . . 8+ hour date! It was cool because my brother and his fiancee came with us.

    We had a great lunch in Hollywood, lunch special was sole, penne arribiatta, roasted potatoes, salad all for $10. The movie theatre is a hi-end complex where you choose your seats online and the seats are bigger, but the screen was huuuuge. Very cool complex since I rarely go to the movies it was worth a few bucks more than a regular theatre. Then off to a cool bar in Hollywood for some drinks with my wife's bestfriend, I drank water.

    It was a good day/evening and the movie was very good, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"

  27. Another milestone at 30 days . . . I waited to re-measure for several days to make sure it was not workout pump.

    My upper arm measurement is at 16", I did measure at the beginning and I was at 15.75. It may not be big for some of you XXL guys but I've always been small so it is a big accomplishment for me. Also, since I'm 5'7" with short arms it make my arms look bigger . . . I have T-Rex arms I think the biggest measurement was 16.25 a couple of years ago while on a SD cycle. I plan on achieving that while running this log . . . just under 60 days to work on that.

    Today will be back and triceps so I plan on killing it on the triceps movements to get a big pump, focus on close-grip bench & skullcrushers. What is the best rep-range for hypertrophy? 8-10 . . . 10-12?

  28. Day 33

    Nice few days of rest to let the DOMS go away, just made me anxious to get back especially to see my progress in my lifts. Is it possible that test supps can affect facial hair growth? This is something I have noticed on other supps, not just this stack. My facial hair is slow growing and I cannot grow a full beard . . . it is kind of patchy But it does seem like I must shave more frequently when using any supps related to test boosting.

    While at the gym I ran into a local HS FB player, we worked in a few sets together on lat pulldowns. He said he's never seen a teacher as buff as me. Kinda cool, esp since he's asked me for tips before yet I didnt know him. Today I talked to him because I recognized him from the local paper as one of the team stars. We know a lot of the same people, my former students.

  30. Awesome to hear about your arms. I'm about 5'8" and my arms are probably a little on the short side too. I know 16-16.5" doesn't sound huge for biceps/triceps but I get comments from people all the time. I don't even wear tight shirts.

    You look a litte leaner than I do, so I bet your arms are looking pretty swole right now. Keep the good stuff coming!

  31. I should find some pics from before I started training, I was a little guy at 135 lbs. Heck, many of my jr hi students were bigger than me. I have some pics in my class and the students laugh at how skinny I was. When I drink a protein drink in class they think I get big from Muscle Milk . . . "You should also workout if you want to get muscles" . . . . stupid kids!

    Worst part is finding proper fitting clothes since I am not a big guy, just muscular. If the shirt fits the shoulders/arms then it is huge in the belly area and hangs to my mid-thigh. If it fits my mid-section then it is extremely tight on the arms/shoulders.

    Yeah, we're pretty similar in size. But my problem is more finding pants I like and aren't too tight on the thighs.

    Finding right fitting clothes is always a struggle for me too! i have a thin 30 inch waist, a really lanky torso, and really broad shoulders. Everything that fits my upper body is too short. if something is long enough for me than im lost in it like im wearing a 50 gallon garbage bag

  34. Day 34

    Abbreviated workout for time's sake, mainly went in for DB bench and get out. I felt great in the gym as I put up the 100s while guys bigger than me (overall size/wt . . . not muscle) were bb benching their 135. Did 3-4 warmup sets for bench and curls and then 3 working sets. Once I get the 100s for 3 sets of 10 I will jump to 105s, but next chest workout will be hi-rep with 205 for 12+ reps. wondering what my rep max would be for 225 now, at the beginning of the stack I was pushing 225x8.

    Now off to my mom's for NY dinner . . . prime rib again and some Napa cabs!

    Workout-Chest/Biceps

    DB Bench
    100x10
    100x10
    100x8

    DB Curls
    45x8
    45x8
    45x8
    didnt go heavier to save energy for my DB bench.

  35. 30 Day Update Summary

    I am +3lbs over the past few days and feeling good each day in the gym, not overboard aggression just smooth confidence. Yesterday I felt great as I was putting up the 100s on DB bench, a little swagger.

    Lifts are going up nicely, changing rep schemes each workout for both strength & endurance. I will do a strength test tomorrow for the main lifts I measured early in the stack. I am still working it easy on squats so still not up to par. Everything else should be a good improvement in the rep range.

    I also noted the other day that my upper arm/bicep is +1/4 inch to 16", hoping to get up to 16.5" at the end of 30 days.
