    Arms 4/13/12

    -Cross Body Hammer Curls 2x10-12

    -Top portion Bench Press 5x10-12
    -One Arm DB Ex 3x20-10
    -Upright Dips 4x30-10 (varried tempo because I don't have a chain to add weight to my belt)

    -Standing DB supine Curls 3x10-12
    -Incline Hammer Curls 3x12
    -Preacher Machine Curls 3x15-12

    -Ended the workout off with some partial chains (underhand/narrow)

    *Notes*
    -Good pump but not the best (lack of sleep / blowing my load last night in her hair.....yeah come at me bro! )
    -PR's on everything (rep wise)
    -Getting more vascular everyday!
    -Supersetted each tricep/bicep exercise
    -Rest periods around 60 seconds
    -Sitting here and my pump is getting better by the minute?! lol.....and it hurts! In a good way of course.
    -Next time when whatever muscle im training finnally reaches that "fully pumped" state, gonna add 1-3 more sets along with some extreme stretching during that sequence, and gonna inject my carb/cell volumizer/bcaa shake during that sequence instead of taking it post workout. Talk about "maximizing the pump"!!
    -I was going to follow a more "structured" training protocol like a PHAT variant....but honestly I hate training heavy(2-6 reps)....its boring...I hate it....not intense.....I love training for a maximum pump while still overloading my muscles, I feel for maximum development of the muscles, this is key. No half-assing around here!

    Update*

    *So about 9 days into C20 / Prime....what have I noticed?

    -Appetite has slightly increased (which is a blessing for me)
    -Feeling unstoppable / focused more than ever during my workouts
    -Pumps get better and better...
    -Im training for hypertrophy, so im more concerned with the pump, getting in my nutrients.....and of course I progressively overload my muscles every workout, but I feel, feeling the muscle constantly stretching and contracting is the number 1 step before even thinking about moving heavier weight. But to any ego maniacs out there....yes I am constantly getting stronger everyday.
    -Mood is great!
    -Started this 4/5/12 around the 213-216 range, will weigh myself after my next rest day.
    -Burning fat aswell! Waist gets tighter everyday! Love it!

    *Update*
    -Just weighed in at 220?!!? Awesome! My goal was actually get around 220 without any additional fat gain!.....Yeah but in early May!! Just days into my calories in absolute full force, balls out training, perfect supplement protocol for bulking dominated that goal!! Heres a little run down on my current offseason(below
    *March 5 Begin at 205 pounds
    *March 25 Around 211-213
    *March 25-April 4th Maintenance (had to deal with some life issues)
    *April 15 Up to 220 pounds (221.8 if you want to count my weight when im fully hydrated )

    -Gota keep dem arms vascular and have visible abs! Most people's "bulking" term is to gain muscle but they also tell themselves "its ok" to gain excess fat.....not for me, my bulking term is strictly building muscle.
    -Grow time!
    -Like I said this is the period when my gains sky rocket, im even surprised of my weight increase!

    How's your eating been lately, when you skyrocketed your gains the past days? same like about 500-700grams of carbs per training day and what about proteins?

    4/16/12 Delts (rear delts/traps on back day)

    -Seated Machine Press 2x12 (less strain on rotator cuffs than a free weight heavy barbell/dumbbell press)
    -Dumbbell Upright Rows 3x10-12
    -Behind Back Cable Side Laterals 3x10-12 (DO NOT GO HEAVY ON THIS! ROTATOR CUFF STRAIN IS HIGH ON THIS EXERCISE!)
    -Standing Dumbbell Military Press 2x10-12

    Calves-
    Seated Calf Raise 2x10-20
    One Leg Straight Leg Calf Raise 2x8-20

    *Notes*
    -Even though I went light, those behind back laterals literally strained my rotator cuffs wayy too much, if I do those in the future, ill stick to 20-30 reps on those
    -Tried out a machine press that I never really done before, really good feel, minimal stress on rotator cuffs, feel it right in the mid/front delts, though if I do this exercise again, ill stick with 15-20 reps. Still trying to find a good pressing exercise for my delts without too much rotator cuff strain.
    -Pump was great until my rotator's got strained , will most likely stick with a machine/barbell/dumbbell press, wide upright rows, regular side laterals next time. Though I hate using super heavy weight on my seated barbell/dumbbells presses lol.
    -Time to move on, back day is 2morrow.

    Protein is a little less than my bodyweight, carbs are always around 500, fats are very high aswell. I notice if I eat a super high protein / low carb diet/moderate to high fat diet I stay flat, I actually notice more fat gain, gaining muscle is almost a miracle on a diet like that. Higher carbs are key for me.

    GREAT gains! 220 already. Man.
    Interesting on the diet. Recently I noticed that a lot of the natural athletes I follow do something like 90-100g fat, 200-220g protein, 300-450g carbs. (This is for a 200lb~) Maintaining on a powerlifting diet.

    Thanks for the kind words man! Shoot...im surprised aswell! Didn't think i'd get up to 220 till early May! 225-230 here I come!

    I wouldn't recommend that much food for a powerlifter, with the lack of physical intense activity for the sport of powerlifting, eating that much would just result in excess fat gain.

    I would think so as well but one guy I'm following eats this much just to keep from losing weight.

    He does hiit style cardio on off days though for recovery and explosiveness.

    Oh he does hiit cardio? Thats good then, I thought he was your typical powerlifter that the only type of extra cardio would be from getting off the couch to the kitchen to get a bag of potatoe chips lol. Okay, okay, im just a hater for powerlifters lol.

    Back 4/17/12

    -Narrow Pulldowns
    -Wide Grip Barbell Rows

    *Notes*
    -Tried to do deadlifts and barbell rows at the beginning of my workout, my lower back said F U!
    -Constant stretch and contraction around that 10 rep range is key for me and my hypertrophy goals!
    -Did about 2 sets to failure for each exercise
    -Nothing exciting today, I really went by feel, im sure I set PR's, the stretch and pump is my focus every workout
    -C20 with post workout shake....you really feel an extra burst of energy when doing this, love it!
    -Grow time!

    Ughhh ran into another freakin roadblock.....

    -My killer mindset needs to be tamed....I keep training too frequently / too many sets to failure.....I know what I have to do every session, but once I get in that "zone" I end up overdoing things.....
    -Shrinked....
    -Alright, time to tame my "killer mindset".......this is going to be hard.....pulling back during my training is extremely difficult for me....
    -Was sick for a couple days
    -Prime 2 caps, 3x a day, C20 2x a day

    Tip of the day! 4/21/12

    *Carbs will make you fat! Or will they?

    The trend / theory in the fitness industry is that, eating carbs in general will automatically make you fat, carbs are demonized in this industry, no carbs past 6 pm, low carbs to stay lean, never eat high glycemic carbs! Im sure you have heard it all, most of those theories do have a place don't get me wrong, a typical person isn't that active at night, lower carbs can keep you lean, and if your insulin sensitivity is as low as an obese person, High GI carbs will most likely be stored as fat.

    What will carbs do for you?
    -Energy
    -ATP during training
    -Keep your muscles full / dense
    -Taking in an adequate amount of carbs will keep your body more "anabolic" (protein sparing)
    -Enhance your Thyroid for fat loss / muscle building benefits (insulin sensitivity / amount of carbs each day / cycled obviously has to be in check)

    All carbs convert to glucose, high GI or low GI, it all turns into glucose, if your insulin sensitivity is on point, taking in carbs no matter if its a high GI or low GI carb will go towards your physical goals(obviously amount will be varried from person to person), and yes taking in high GI carbs will slightly lower insulin sensitivty when taken at a time when your body doesn't necessarily need carbs, for example before bed. Im going to list all the ways/techniques to use to increase your "insulin sensitivity". But first!! Lets see the negative impact on a low carb diet!

    Low carb diet negative impacts (and yes AAS users will obviously be more anabolic than a natural would, so a AAS user could get away with a low carb diet, only slightly though!)
    -Catabolism
    -Flat muscles
    -Low thyroid
    -Testosterone levels will NOT be as high as they could be
    -Low energy levels
    -Lack of or poor pumps in the gym
    -Moodiness
    -Fat loss may seem rapid at first, but once your thyroid / testosterone starts plummeting, say goodbye to your muscles, and your fat loss goals will plateau (there is a place for "low carbs" of course! Best used when your using more of a specific diet, like a carb cycling diet)

    Alright, scary isn't it? Heres what you can do to improve your "insulin sensitivity"!
    -HIIT cardio
    -Daily exercise in general!
    -Intense weight training
    -Lemon water! (so easy and results are outstanding, you should feel a instant burst of energy after drinking this! love it!)
    -Keeping stress low!
    -Fish oils
    -Kril oils
    -GDA's
    -Green Tea
    -Zinc / Magnesium
    -BCAA's!
    -Getting in a adequate amount of sleep everynight

    Those are some pretty simple ways to improve the way your body uses insulin if you ask me!

    -Pumps are very intense!
    -Leaning effect is noticeable! (its a great feeling when you see your delt veigns popping out of your shirt!!)
    -Mood/confidence really amped up a couple days ago.....week 2 is usually the sweet spot for these products to kick in and it has.....WEEK 3 HERE I COME!

    Wow, I have c20, only one bottle though. Perhaps I'll get another and see what kinda gains I can get. Prime is a bit pricey for me to run at the dose I like.

    4/23/12 Where do I start?!!?

    Alright, one of those days when bad things turn into good things.....

    Warming up with some heavy ass lunges part of my cns warm up, tweeked my right knee, thought my workout was gonna suffer, already did some light extensions before that, and then did some more just to get more blood around the knee area.....really thought I had to ditch squats for this workout.....so im warming up with the bar, squeezing my glutes, driving through the heels to prevent "knee grinding", worked like a charm! Ended up placing a HUGE PR, did a heavy ass weight that I could usually handle for only 5 while staying "in the hole", aka keeping constant tension on my quads/glutes, usually if your going too heavy your body wants to use a full range of motion to prevent injuries, I ended up getting 17 f'ing reps without any sort of pause or knee grinding.....outstanding, I never compliment myself, but I consider myself a MAN now! lol!!

    Quads/Glutes

    CNS Warm up-
    Leg extensions 2x20
    Heavy Dumbbell Lunges 6x6-12 each leg (heaviest dumbbells in the gym baby, warm up!)
    Leg extensions 1x10 + 10 pulses

    ^^ Most would call that a day, or be in fear of getting weaker when moving on to squats, son.....when your cns is warmed up and activated, get ready to place some huge pr's, train with alpha male intensity, and release a cascade of anabolic hormones when the real work is done.

    Quads/Glutes-
    -Barbell Squats (pr) (pyramid up to my heaviest poundage around the 8-12 range....ended up getting 17....was aiming for 20 )

    Calves-
    Bent Knee Calf Press (pr) (soleus focus) (12 range)
    Slight Bent Knee Calf Press (pr) (gastroc focus) (8 range)

    *Notes*
    -Fasted
    -Monster Workout
    -Feelin' good!
    -2 stoked caps pre workout
    -Weight is still around that 220 range and getting leaner baby!!
    -I love me.

    If your wondering how to keep constant tensions on your quads while squatting/pressing, keep the glutes contracted, and drive off the heels, below is a video of IFBB Pro Jason Huh leg training, thats basically what made a drastic difference in my hypertrophy goals.

    Oh and be warned, you will not be able to go heavier at first! If you can, your engaging assistance muscles to dominate the movement / grinding joints.

    4/25/12 Chest / Triceps

    CNS Warm up-
    -barbell flat bench press 4x2-6 (no where near failure)

    Chest-
    -Dumbbell Pullovers 2x12
    -Dumbbell Flat Bench Press 2x12
    -Wide Grip Dips 2x12
    -Cable Flys 2x12
    -Incline DB Press 2x12 (varried elbow positions, activating your upper pecs is a workout itself....)
    -Incline DB Fly Extreme Stretch 3x30 seconds

    Triceps-
    V-Bar Pushdowns 2x10
    Upright Dips 2x8
    One Arm DB Ext 2x10

    *Notes*
    -Activating your pecs is a must for developing pecs, obviously! But people don't realise how difficult it is, you CANNOT train with super heavy weights!
    -Pump was ok, was extreme in the beginning, then kind of over stretched on my barbell warm up presses, and overstretched the dips a bit too much when warming up, which kind of ruined my pump, chest is the one bodypart I hate training because its a "thought process" workout.
    -Im sure I set PR's, I did exercises I usually didn;t do, while keeping constant tension on my pecs
    -Just one of those workouts when mentally...."Just wasnt there"......
    -Will try barbell presses for my incline range of motion next week, anyone with the knowledge of biomachanics as far as learning the fully lenthened and fully shortened of your muscles will tell you its still VERY difficult training "chest".
    -No sleep last night
    -Took my Compound 20 pre / out of prime sadly
    -Successfull workout for the future I suppose, gotta stay positive.
