Gotta get my FIXX -- with a twist...

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Body weight prior to training today: 253.8lbs

    Another strange day in the gym. I was tired, exhausted, and burned out from doing a sick amount of yard work yesterday. I felt like someone hit me with a truck when I woke up this morning. My back has been sore and some occassional back pumps don't help matters. Still, I wanted to work heavy bench with bands to work my lockout. Here's how that went...

    Bench

    bar x 15 or so
    135 x 12
    225 x 6
    275 x 3
    315 x 2
    365 x 1
    405 x 1
    425 x 1
    450 x 1 (PR)
    405 x 3 (failed on 4th rep)

    I finished with face pulls with the rope (for scapular retraction), dips, and tricep pressdowns.

    I surprised myself on bench today. I was tired but I guess adrenaline is a wonderful thing. My first 405 was not very impressive. 425 was much better and it flew off my chest. I honestly didn't think 450 was going to come off my chest. I was going to try it then attach bands. After hitting that, I dropped to 405 and killed the first 3 reps. That 4th rep was brutal and I couldn't lock out. I never did use bands today. Here's a video of my 450:



    Yeah, I know: it was just touch-and-go and I flaired my elbows. I've already critiqued the hell out of my lift.

    One of the things I just noticed today is that I have not been using my elbow sleeves. I have a pair of Rehbands that I always use on heavy upper days. They're in my bag but I haven't used them in 2 weeks. This Joint Fixx stuff is legit!

    Thanks, gentlemen. It's a raw PR but nothing is ever enough - I want more!

  5. I was just browsing the Nutraplanet sale and noticed that they do not carry Joint Fixx. WTF?!?!

  6. Happy Independence Day!

    I opened the gym today for a couple hours this afternoon and was surprised as to how many of my guys showed up. I pulled deads and added bands for a harder lockout.

    Deadlifts

    135 x 10
    135 x 8
    225 x 8
    315 x 8
    405 x 6

    Deads w/ EliteFTS Monster Mini short bands

    225 x 8
    315 x 6
    315 x 6
    365 x 6

    I did some jump squats and GHRs to finish but had the same weird pain in my knees as I did last week.

    I focused on pulling fast and accelerating hard all the way to lockout on deads. I'll pull heavy late next week.

    I weighed myself prior to lifting today: 255.4lbs. I am feeling very full and tight, like a 'pump' all the time, and my wife has noticed that my vascularity has improved. Better size, better strength, better body composition; Superdrol is some amazing stuff. Joint Fixx has really helped alleviate any joint issues associated with SD. I wish Joint Fixx was available at NutraPlanet but its no big deal. I found it cheap elsewhere and I will be ordering more once I'm finished with my SD PCT.

  7. Nothing too special about today. Light upper with reps.

    Overhead press

    bar x whatever
    95 x 12
    95 x 10
    135 x 12
    135 x 8
    185 x 7
    185 x 3
    200 x 13

    The reason I did 200 is because one of the guys I train is doing 5/3/1 and it was his max rep day for 200lbs. He hit 9 reps so I figured I'd outdo him. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone. I did some light bench (135) with bands (attached to heavy DBs on the floor) and counted 4sec down and exploded up. I did 4 sets of 6-8 reps. I was focusing on elbow and shoulder position as well as speed. Afterwards I did some pull-ups and tricep pressdowns.

    Today is my last lifting day on SD. My joints have been feeling decent so Joint Fixx is doing its job. My left shoulder was a bit sore yesterday and today (probably slept on it wrong) and my knees have been feeling dry. Joint Fixx isn't a cure-all but it definitely helped while on cycle. PCT begins Sunday. If I counted the pills correctly my last dose of Joint Fixx will be Tuesday morning.

  8. PCT begins today. It was a decent SD cycle with surprisingly minimal sides. Joint Fixx certainly helped with any joint issues. Honestly, my joints have never felt better while on a PH cycle.

  9. Today was the last training session on this bottle of Joint Fixx. Everything felt good today except for my lower back. It felt tight as hell for some reason. I still went up to 545 on deads but I was not happy at all with the bar speed.

    My body weight today: 258.2lbs. That is officially the heaviest I have ever weighed.

    Thanks. It was a great opportunity for me to try out a great product on these beat-up, old joints.

  12. Today was the last day of my bottle of AMS Joint Fixx.
    I'll do a write-up on my experience with it as soon as I have time tomorrow...

  13. Finally - a moment to do my final review.

    First, I want to thank the AMS crew for supporting me through this logging opportunity. Honestly, I had my doubts at first, but Joint Fixx ended up being a worthy supplement (more about that in a minute).

    Second, a quick update on my SD cycle. I had minimal sides at 20/30/30/30 (some lethargy, some libido issues, back pumps) and my gains were worth it. I certainly did not experience some of the nightmare-ish problems that I've read about with some guys. I made some obvious strength and weight gains; I started my cycle at 244lbs and ended up at 258lbs - not bad. My bench 1RM (touch and go) is now 450 which is a noticeable improvement. My vascularity has improved and a few pairs of cargo shorts are looser around my waist. Good results for 4 weeks.

    Finally -- Joint Fixx. I did not have any joint issues until the very end of my SD cycle when I noticed that my knees were a bit sore when doing GHRs. Most of the time I notice my joints drying out as one of the first sides. Joint Fixx really helped alleviate joint dryness for sure. If it worked this well on-cycle then it should do even better when I'm not running a PH. One of the things I had noted in my log was the fact that I no longer needed elbow sleeves. My joints felt well enough to throw whatever weight I decided to at 'em. All in all, Joint Fixx is the real deal; I rate it a 9.5/10. Fixx is not a cure-all by any means but will definitely benefit anyone with current joint soreness or those who have the potential for joint issues in the future.
