    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.

    Hahah. Thats most power lifters or weight lifters too.
    But they have some what of an excuse.... They don't want to train the slow twitch muscle at all... So joggin etc is out of the question.

  4. 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!

  7. 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

  11. 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!

    Heres a 2 week update

    So 2 weeks into this stack, what have I noticed....

    -Increased Appetite (and its better everyday thank god!)
    -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!

    ^^ Obviously all the above will aid in gaining muscle mass / strength! This stack really delivers!

    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.

  15. Holy quad zilla batman my quads are gettin' freaky!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    http://www.flexonline.com/news/conte...unt-pro-card-0

    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.

  20. 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.

  21. 4/27/12 Rest Day

    *Notes
    -Been out of prime for days now, I love that product!
    -C20 is one of the best supplements ive ever used hands down.....i'd do anything to run another cycle of that!
    -A blister/calus developed on my right foot so I can't even walk right now, going to take some days off from training / cardio, I feel my body really needs it!
    -NBA Playoffs start....who you guys got to come out of the first round?
    -Prime review coming soon

  22. 4/27/12 Tip of the Day! (ill do these atleast every couple of days, remember quality is what I want to give you guys!)

    *Want the BEST possible pump every training session?

    The pump?! What benefits does a pump even offer?! I thought its pointless!!!

    *Pump benefits*
    -Increase Protein Synthesis
    -Increase Glycogen Synthesis
    -Glut 4 benefits
    -Growth Hormone secretion
    -Fascia Stretch (for long term hypertrophy)
    -VEGF benefits (vascular endothilial growth factor) (basically the veign creating hormone)
    -The pump feels damn good! Arnold was right, the pump feels just as good as shootin' your load! haha!

    How can you increase your chances of getting a maximum pump? Here's a couple simple steps!

    1)Stay Anabolic (if your natural, take a rest day before and after every session, if you can take 2 days off before and after every session in my that would mentally drive people insane, but it would literally set every workout out to ensure you are fully recovered before going back in the gym, keeping your endocrine system / cns / adrenal glands in check is one of my keys for maximum hypertrophy!) (ensure your body has the proper amount of protein/carbs/fats) (getting enough sleep) (keeping stress under control, remember....CORTISOL IS A PUMP KILLER!!)

    2)Increase your potassium/sodium/water intake! (cell volumization benefits in thsi department BIG TIME!)

    Heres my Pre workout protocol to maximize your pump!

    *1.5 hours Pre
    -Lean Protein Source of your choice
    -Large White or Red Potato
    -Large Green Salad
    -1 avocado
    -1 banana
    -multivitamin
    -GDA / Nutrient Partioner of your choice

    *10 mins Pre
    -Agmatine based supplement
    -BCAA's
    -Fast Carb (gatorade / karbolyn....etc...)
    -Beta Alanine
    -Ensure your body is saturated with creatine already
    -Glutamine
    -Alpha Lipoic Acid

    I mean who doesn't love an arm pump?

    Looks like the products shined through for you. Can't wait to give c20 a try. Prime is really good I agree with you there lol.

    Nice pre workout routine btw, need the fuel to kill it in the gym!

  28. 5/1/12 Im back....with a vengeance!

    -Upper body-

    -Warm up (lunges / presses / clean and presses, get heart rate up)

    -Flat Barbell Bench Press
    -Rack Deadlifts
    -Overhand / Underhand / Hammer Grip Chins
    -DB Seated Shoulder Press
    -Upright Rows
    -Ab work

    *Notes*
    -PR'S ON EVERYTHING
    -Chasing performance instead of chasing fatigue is how I utilize my volume, pretty much 2 working sets for each exercise is enough to overload the muscle while keeping high intensity / performance, usually by that 3rd working set im starting to fatigue rapidly which is pretty much has no benefits in the hypertrophy / strength department. Reps are always around the 8-12 range, once I start getting under that 8 range, its time to move on.
    -Brutal workout!
    -Intensity maintained until I reached my ab work, so thats when I left the gym, once intensity starts dropping even by a little bit, LEAVE THE GYM!
    -Arm isolation work will most likely be done with lower body
    -My whole body is taxed....im feelin' it big time haha!
    -Pump was good!
    -Gotta control myself at the beginning of the workout....for example for my bench presses, I could of went and done a few more sets just to fulfill my ego, performance was about to drop, so I moved on.....close call. (yes im that specific when im on a mission!)
    -Intensity, Overload, Maintain High Performance, Drop ego, leave, recover, repeat.

  30. Tip of the day! Errr....lets start calling this "Mini Article of the day"! 5/2/12

    *HERE are the top 5 reasons why your efforts are not rewarding you.

    1)Your execution is horrible, yeah your going all the way and all the way down, full range of motion, that means thats perfect form!!! ERRRR!! WRONG!!! Your going to have to find that sweet spot on every exercise so you can feel the muscle constantly being stretched and contracted, that means NOT USING A FULL RANGE OF MOTION, stop utilizing a full contraction / full stretch where the joint is being compromised(WHEN GOING HEAVY!, you can use a full contraction / full stretch when going light without any possible future injuries, but honestly their are "major" benefits of utilizing a full contraction, plus going light isn't gonna do jack crack for ya!. We want tension on the muscle with no extra joint/tendon grinding.

    2)Your most likely doing too many isolation low motor unit exercisers or doing too many sets(volume), if your having trouble adding muscle, stick to high motor unit firing exercises, such as free weight decline presses / barbell rows / squats / dips / chins...etc...

    3)Ensure your adrenal glands / endocrine system / central nervous system are always firing optimally for your hypertrophy / strength goals, so structure your frequency by taking a day off between each workout(this will vary person to person obviously), shop for supplements that aid in adrenal health, make sure your mag / vitamin b's intake are on point every day.

    4)Stop following "programs", all these cookie cutter programs are all the same ****, just with a different theme, the maker of the program will do his best to hype it up, obviously its his "so called" creation, he has to back it up! Look muscle growth happens via myofibrillar hypertrophy and sarcoplasm hypertropy, a quick google search and you'll know what that is.

    5)Only supplements you should worry about is the follow (below)

    -magnesium (not in oxide form)
    -zinc (not in oxide)
    -vitamin b's
    -GDA supp (ai nutrition's glycobol is a great choice!)
    -Nutrient Partioner (usp labs prime is a great choice)
    -creatine mono (other forms are gimmicks, creatine mono works just as good)
    -herbal tea's to constantly give your body / liver a detox effect, which will aid in endothielial health and your endocrine system / cns aswell

    Improve daily, learn something new everyday, the day you start thinking "you know everything", thats the day you stop growing!
