    Day 12 Wednesday July 11, 2012


    Workout:

    Squats: 315x8 (4 Sets), 395x2

    Deadlift: warmup, 385x1x1, 315x15

    Leg Press: 275X20

    Note* I love squating and Deadlifting on the same day. I have been doing it for over 1.5 years. I usually split my back into an upper and lower day and hit upper/chest Monday and Legs and Lower Tuesday. Why? A program I found on T-nation called Twelve Weeks to a Better Deadlift. This progarm raised my Deadlift from 405 single to a 565 Deadlift in one year ( Jan 2011 to Jan 2012 ) which I pulled in a pureathleticpower local meet.

    Anyways, I raised the amount of Division 1/Licogenix to 6 caps daily due to my size. Formula-X has been bumped to two scoops for half gallon I drink. This makes it 4 scoops daily. Recovery is awesome.

    Why so much? What ingredient are you trying to maximize? You could do one scoop and add BCAAs, maybe more stims...product is pretty much good as is as far as DAA and LCLT.

    The basic premise was not to increase it for the stimulants at all. Actually I have a very, very high tolerance to stims. I can take any supp on an empty and carry on with my day. I have taken other supps with some stims which weren't meant to mix together and been fine. The idea was to drink a gallon first half of day with 2 scoops and a gallon second half day into the next morning. Meaning, the second half begins intra workout throughout night into next morning. I have it in case I wake up in middle of night and drink the rest. I will only utilize 1 scoop in the AM and 1 scoop in the PM.

    As noted above I'm not trying to maximize anything ingredient wise. The product is great as far as I'm concerned. Tell me how many people you know who doesn't experiment a little to see what they can tolerate or helps them better than what is listed on the label. If you didn't then why have people use the products at all outside of purchasing it yourself. If I followed workouts according to how one person wrote it and never mixed, matched, added and subtracted what worked or didn't then I wouild look like everyone else who is fat and dumpy @ 300+.

    Formula-X contains no stims, only thing that will boost energy per say is the NAT, but thats a natural energy/aggression boost. I think you may be getting the DAA mixed up with DMAA, two different things all together. The DAA is D-Aspartic Acid, it's a testosterone boosting amino acid thats been shown to boost testosterone by up to 42% in normal healthy men. I'm not worried about stims, but I am worried dosing that much DAA may lead to toxicity.

    I'm still utilizing it as directed on the label so no worries!

    Do you have any advice on stopping a 5 month old baby who doesn't want to sleep, from crying even though he is tired? I've been up since 3am, took him on a drive tio McD's to get coffee and gas, he's smiling at me. So we drive furthur up the road to the next town (25 minutes away) and finally he falls asleep. I get home and leave him in the car seat, while he slept quietly (for 4hrs). This lil dude doesn't like to sleep at all.

    I know their close, but the way I do it is I use each one in a ramp up to the next. If you look at my other events on my Bodyspace comp. history page you will see I did 9 events in a 1.5 year period. I've done it before but not with a truck pull. It's going to be sweet. I have three other events to add to that schedule. Also I'm editing the workout above. Come back and look at the PR's. This stack is unbelievable.

    Yes no doubt. I love lifting and I even can incline 385 and hit 405 but haven't hit it since a month ago. I'll deload on bench/squat/dead after next week, so I'll try to hit it and film it on the incline since it will be my last week with this stack.

    No doubt. I have cracked my genetic code. The secret to hitting those numbers is to not be afraid of the weight and do it. If you can wide grip 400 then you should be able close grip at least 20lbs less. I learned by changing the grip each workout to maintain strength throughout the lift. Also, by flat on Monday, and CG on Friday it hits different parts of your chest and arms. I had nothing against not natural gains as well but this is why test boosters and such help me. I don't know the difference between how steroids helps versus test boosters. The little they give me is big gains in my numbers. Also, this is why I consistently can hit 405. It's my opener in comps. I never lose it because I'm natural. Add 5-10 lbs then it gets hairy.

I woke up and had to drive 2.5 hrs at 5am to the VAMC (Veterans Hospital) Hospital for a physical. I hit the gym after I got home and pissed. I should have stayed home but wanted to hit up the gym. Exhaustion played it's part. I will get my numbers, next week.

    I was extremely exhausted when I did this workout. I was drained from being aggravated from my son who wouldn't sleep all night. it's ok. I woke up and had to drive 2.5 hrs at 5am to the VAMC (Veterans Hospital) Hospital for a physical. I hit the gym after I got home and pissed. I should have stayed home but wanted to hit up the gym. Exhaustion played it's part. I will get my numbers, next week.

    Yeah, REST. DON'T LIFT ANYTHING. Relax and eat, repeat. The worst thing you can do is go to the gym a week out. Let everything heal and VISUALIZE, VISUALIZE, AND VISUALIZE SOME MORE YOUR LIFTS. I can't tell you how much I focus on my goal lifts to the point I get angry. Especially, if I know I worked hard to hit the target weight. Anything after that, is a plus.

    I know and as much as I want to say it shouldn't matter, I realized last night how exhausted I still was. This morning I'm ready to attack the gym like it stole something. I took some forumula-x last night with 1L water and woke up focused. I didn't go to the gym last night and thought about what I wanted to do today. Next up, legs and lower chain.

    I would love to have a huge gym for us to train in. I learn from everyone. I just enjoy training in general, sharing ideas and trying new workouts. I always go back to basic bread and butter for compound movements for power.

    Day 19 July 18, 2012

    Workout

    INCLINE BENCH: Barx20, Barx15, 135x15, 225x5, 315x5, 395x1 (Strength check)
    LEGS: 10x10. First five was with the bar to warmup. Next two was with 135x10, 225x8, 315x3 (For some reason I was gassed. I don't get what happened but I did not feel good about squats. I left them out since June 23, comp. also, the cardio for the past two days had to have affected my lower back so I plan to hit them again Friday)
    LEG PRESS: 270x20, 350x20, 450x20 (Stopped just wasn't feeling it)
    CALVES MACHINE SEATED:180x20 (4 sets)
    TBAR ROW: 2PLx10, 4PLx10, 6PLx8, 7PLx4 (PR Matched)
    MILITARY PRESS: 135x8, 185x8, 205x8, 225x8 (Smashed this, could have gone higher, major PR. I left this exercise out of my regiment for years. I tried this last week and was so week I couldn't hit 135.)

    Note*
    Today legs were terrible. I forgot me and a buddy had to take six motors from a warehouse this morning and weigh them in a scrapyard. Each one averaged 180. We had totaled them out of the warehouse and into the truck, onot a scale and reload them in the truck and offload back in the warehouse. Nonetheless, I love telling you guys the biz because I always rebound and I want to be straight up, in what happens In the gym. By the way, did I ever tell you I hate them, SQUATS. Just as we hated veggies growing up I still do them. On another note. My upper body strength has increased immensely. Follow me on this. I benched 395 twice on Monday, did 60 reps of Pullups/Chinups (didn't list this day), performed incline press @ 395, plus military press @ 225. I would say I'm still doing extremely well with this stack. I'm going to do Pullups/Chinups tomorrow, Friday I plan to hit deads/squats. It's going to be brutal. Redemption is at hand. Be well, fellas. For entertainment purposes where did that phrase come from, be well?

    No doubt. I'm on fire. I'm determined to hit my numbers for Aug. 11th in Durham, NC for the 100% RAW Meet. I will get to see my Uncle I haven;t seen in years. I plan to just drop in at his doorstep. He was the one who first introduced me to supplements. He gave me a bottle of Amino5000 or something 25yrs ago and said take these. I was popping 8 pills and had no idea what they were. I was getting strong for no reasona dn stopped becuase I was scared and had no idea what was happening. He really didn't explain what they were or how they worked. I was lifteing in my basement with a set my Father bought for my brother and I.
    Fast forward to now. He has no idea how big I am. Anyways along with this stack I just received my Slingshot by Mark Bell. I plan to use it to get me over the hump. I read a lot of articles and you must be careful on how you go about it. It says it can give you 10%. So along with spotters and great technique I will reach my goal and more this year.
    Let's get it! Salute!

    Did this workout during lunch time. Made quick work of a back and chest. My chest was a bit sore but still pulled this off for a PR on the Hammer chest press. I never did that many reps with 12 plates. There is room for 14. I plan to try this next Thursday. On Monday I plan to do a negative with 440 to see how I handle it. I will break down and do some DB, and cable work. I'm loving the strength I'm gaining, just hoping it lasts.

    Day 24 July 23, 2012


    TONIGHTS WORKOUT PLAN


    BENCH PRESS: 135x30, 225x20, 315x12, 365x8, 405x5 (PR), 440x1/2, 455x2 w/ slanger.
    INCLINE BENCH: 225x15, 265x12, 285x12, 305x6
    INCLINE FLYE: 65x15, 75x12, 85x10x3
    DIPS: BWx8x3

    Note*
    This is a workout I plan to hit as a staple for bench day. I received a recommendation from emmo on how to change it up. Appreciate the page homie. The slanger is an accessory for benching, if used correctly can become a very powerful tool in your arsenal. This week I will be back in full swing. No interruptions, no vacations or anything else which can hinder my training. The kicker is at the end of the week wifey is traveling to Pa so I will introduce insanity as cardio. I will hit the gym for two a day workouts. I'm trying to take this to a whole new level. I'm doing a hybrid of powerlifting, bodybuilding and insanity. Crazy huh. I have three weeks to fine tune it because she will take our god daughter home and stay home for few days before returning. It's going to be fun trying to get this rolling for two months and see how I function.

    UPDATE*
    SMASHED PR OF 405 for 5 reps. I always struggled to get 3. Last two reps were difficult but got all 5. I hit the two reps with the never before used slanger @ 455. People don't believe in this accessory. I have to say neither did all the people @ the Y. They watched a I got strapped up in MARK BELLS SLINGSHOT after they seen me with three spotters help with the single 440 negative. I donned it and took the spot. I brought it down slowly and without any assistance BANG out the whole to lockout. It felt so good I did it again and stopped. I was STOKED. this thing is awesome. Yes, I smashed the other numbers in my workout as well. No doubt this stack is the BOMB. So sad I out of the blue pills so I will be closing it out tomorrow as to my thoughts. You can see there is no doubt it does the job.

    My chest was so full it felt like it was going to bust. This stack is incredible. I didn't know what to expect but it was an awesome run. Look at my updates JD when you get a chance. I'll send you a video in the morning.
