A Swole Review!! (AI Sponsored Log) (GLYCOBOL/STOKED/TESTOPRO!)

Page 9 of 17 First ... 7891011 ... Last

  1. Ok guys! Today is a good day that started up wonderfully , woke up a bit sore from all my body , specially my upper chest and my legs (both quads and hams), yet I managed to conjure all my willpower and motivational self-pep-talk and got out of bed , dosed my stoked , testopro , staples and went out for a run , it went wonderful, from the second I stepped out the door till the second I stepped back in I never stopped , never walked , just kept going , jamming out tunes in my iPhone , just letting go of everything in this beautiful sunny weather.

    Cardio stats:
    1 hour 17 minutes.
    7.1 miles
    Calories (According to the tracker) 764 burnt, but I am guessing a bit more since I did go full on sprinting for like 2 min intervals at random from awesome parts of songs , that I counted I did at least 5 or 6 of those haha.
    Feeling: Endurance is WAY UP , fatigue doesn't set in , and no headaches or feeling of being out of breath oO!!.

    Now , I know my cardio is way up now , my usual running track is getting out of my apartment , around a 5-6 min jog to my campus and then lapping around it , my max on this used to be only 5 laps in 1 hour , this time around I did 6 laps in 1 hour plus the extra minutes it took me to run there and back, so an extra lap in the same time , means more speed, throw in that last time I couldn't come back jogging and had to crawl back home means more endurance! I would say my cardio has improved at least some good 20% , and I could have kept going :/ I am not tired nor fatigued yet , i could have gone for another lap to get my record to 7 laps around , but I did feel its gonna be too much atm since I am on a bulk and I am forced to rest (cardio days) tomorrow and Monday too since my gym is closed for major cleaning and decontamination haha.

    On a side note...I'm never big on motivational quotes myself , I mean I like them and enjoy them a lot , I'm a personal fan of Rosie Chee's blog because her workouts , determination and quotes just get me out of bed when I feel life is kicking me hard into it...But hey here's one I know its not mine but it helped today while running:

    "The only thing that stands between you and your goal is yourself. You can be your best ally or worst enemy, its up to you to get up, walk...and move forward."

    Keep it up guys and have a great Saturday! Mine started pretty good!! , I'll post later what I'll have for my meals as usual, for now , all I can say is that this stack is giving me way more than I expected.

    Come on brotha! You can do more than that! I'm sure of it! You gotta believe in yourself and get a kick ass playlist going on , just dont think about how fast you are running , let go of the track of time , don't think about where you are, just keep moving while you listen to some sweet jams bro! If you ever come down here to texas lets go for a run and I'm sure you'll even leave me behind !

    And about Rosie , oh hell yeah o.o!! her log is just a true inspiration and I learn a lot from it hehe.

  6. Keep on killing it in here. You got an old tire or something? Take it out and toss it around, tie a rope to it and drag it. Push your car down the street. Do a bunch of bridges to work your back and neck. All kinds of things you can do.

    I actually was thinking of doing something productive tonight! I'll tie up the tire hahaha , and theres a lot of truck tires near campus for strongman training , I'll go flip some , and maybe even push my car oO that sounds mighty good!!

    What are bridges oO!!!??

    Thanks for the motivation bro! !! And for sure I'll give it all!!

  8. Ok guys , time for you to pitch in and help this little wimp out with some major advice from you .

    All throw this 2 weeks you have seen me strive for power in my 5/3/1 , for that I am thankful, however I feel like I haven't pushed myself hard enough yet , I want more , strength is all I need to obtain atm, I need power and size...That for me is my true strength...I will not stop until I get it , so now I think I can push myself harder, but I need some advice, all this half macro-cycle you have seen me do my main lift and a sort of Periodization Bible by Dave Tate (from wendlers book) but I feel I could tweak it around a bit , so instead of high volume and low weight in the assitance , I go for HIGH WEIGHT and low volume too , as I am doing so in the main lift. Obviously since it IS assistance work , I won't be going as heave as my max's but staying within the 7-10 rep realm , would this be fine? Or overtraining? Or does this defeat the porpoise of 5/3/1? Thought please my friends !!

    I am realistic, I know this is a matter of years , and I very much look forward to the rest of my life improving , but right now , I feel I can give more than I've been putting into it, I mean don't get me wrong I haven't been slacking off , high volume might be something i'm used to but I still strove for and attained GREATER weight in the high volume areas of my assistance , but should I go high weight low volume for mass and strength? You are far more knowledgeable than me on this , so please comment away !

    I think you should switch up the weight/rep scheme of your assistance work from week to week. The exercises can stay the same, but do high reps, mid reps, low reps, and then back to high reps on the deload (since it's a CNS deload after all).

    I mean most people will say it defeats the purpose of 5/3/1, but is it overtraining? Depends, are you going to "real failure" with forced negatived / rest pause / drop sets? If so then possibly. If not then i'd say it can work out to the way you want it to, only way to find out is to try it out!

    On the second paragraph......so your looking to maximize hypertrophy / strength right? Your 5/3/1 is solid and will produce great results with power, size would be a maybe on this kind of program. Just for consideration, for my training, each muscle gets worked twice a week, the first workout is more of a myofibrillar hypertrophy focus, with a tempo to stimulate more fast twitch muscle fibers, then the next workout for that muscle (3-4 days later) would be your sarcoplasmic hypertrophy workouts, your "typical bodybuilder training", higher reps, tempo geared towards stimulating your slow twitch fibers, maximizing the pump, stretching the fascia, rest periods are relatively short for both protocols, 60-90 seconds between sets, the key to not getting overtrained is to NOT kill the central nervous system, which is what most youngsters do(including myself dammit! lol) because we are so enthusiastic about training, killing the CNS I mean by training to failure EVERY workout with forced reps/drop sets..etc..

    Hope this helps!

    True indeed my friend , I guess I should not just focus on the textbook guidelines and make it work for me , your input, as always, is much appreciated Cy thanks !

    True , and this kinda is the porpoise of the split I usually try , but I am going to make it more so , so I get a chance to work in both schemes , or simply like you said try out high-mid-low rep and see if it works You are real knowledgeable of this stuff HardOne oO seriously thanks for that complete reply!!

    And yeah...it caught my attention , mainly because I remember I saw in his log he can do weighted pull/chin-ups and I remember I can too , don't ask me why but I can't ever seem to get past the realm of 12-14 BW chins , but with weight (10-25 lbs) I can still rep out around 6-10 oO curious isn't it? I think I should be able to do like 25 BW xD but my muscle endurance in that particular compound seems off for some reason !!!

    ^^ Thanks guys , on Wednesday deload wave is off and I start going up again , and so will my assistance work , thanks guys!

  21. Well my gym really didn't open today , and all that cardio from the past 2 days set a pain hard on top of my heels and all the way to my calves...so to avoid possible injury and because I suppose my body wanted it , I took a rest day :/ Something I don't usually do...I usually just throw in cardio on rest days, but never truly loaf around. For my recovery also I have taken the liberty of modifying my nutrition today to mainly a lot of prot and fats , seeing how I didn't really need carbs today for not doing anything , still threw in A LOT of veggies in the past 2 meals but decided not to count their carb or caloric content.

    So fat its been:
    -1 cup ground turkey with zucchini , okra and spinach
    -1 cup of egg whites
    -2 tbsp natty PB
    -2 tbsp natty PB
    Those were for fast breaking

    and for the snack I just had:
    -1/2 cup of the same turkey (I liked today's recipe a lot oO)
    -2 tbsp natty pb
    -2 tbsp natty almond butter

    So far thats: 1,512 kCals 32g of carbs 90g of fat 139g of protein

    Idk guys I think I should start lowering my kCals because I upped the cardio and I still gained too much , and I really doubt I am a pure mighty mesomorph whose turning all this into bloat-covered muscle , so I'll think something up and tell yah guys, also on a side note I notice I get a better mood with higher fats with this stack , though I do feel a tiny bit dizzy with I have glycobol without carbs (just confirmed) , but nothing I can't handle anyway

  22. Gained too much? NO SUCH THING!!! If you're gaining a little fat it's not that big of a deal. You can add fat to your body while having the overall % decrease (as long as you're adding more muscle at the same time). Keep on keepin' on, man. Don't get paranoid over gaining too fast. I wish I had that 'problem'. If you have any undesirable effects (ie, gaining more fat than anticipated), then cut later - no problem. Besides, you are running a whole-friggin-lot and if you're staying true to the 5/3/1 program then you NEED the extra calories.

    Hey thanks a lot man...seriously this was very kind of you . I know I get paranoid on fat , but it is because it took me a while to lean out and now I'm close to 140 and Idk I don't see extra muscle and I feel a bit flabby and not hard :S! I like keeping up with the cardio since I do feel its the only way to stay fit and keep fat at bay but maybe I AM taking in a LOT of calories more than what I might need :S after all...what I put in this log is my ONLY activity of the day since I'm on vacation X_X! I do nothing else...loaf around at home... Thanks for the motivation , means a lot comming from a big and powerful dude like you!!
