    I didn't get much down before nearly vomiting. Ended up just taking an extra rpm. Ill post the numbers after work today.

  7. 23July12 BP Week 3
    Bench:5/3/1
    160x5, 180x3, 205x1.5 (it fell lol)

    Inc. Bench: 5x15
    95x15, 105x15, 115x15, 125x11 rest 3, 135x9 rest 2

    DB Row: 5x10
    75x10, 80x10, 85x10, 90x10, 95x9

    Recently I've been using 3 RPM before my workouts and it is definitely a big difference from the initial 2. Even without Drive! My wife and I were moving through this workout pretty good and I had a lot of energy. I sprained my wrist (possibly) this past weekend and it was definitely affecting my workout (even with the brace I bought) so I blame that for not getting 205 for 3. (excuses excuses :P) In all seriousness though, it hurt like a mofo! Everything else went as well as could be expected when you're hurting but all in all the workout was a success, as always!

  8. 24July12 Back Squat Week 3

    Back Squat: 5/3/1
    245x5, 275x3, 310x2.5

    Leg Press: 5x15
    230x15, 270x15, 315x15, 335x15, 365x15

    Leg Curl: 5x10
    50x10 60x10, 70x10, 80x10, 90x10

    Again I took 3 RPM and today I blame not getting my third on the lower body circuit we did for PT this morning (always got excuses lol) The rest of the workout went pretty well, as well as leg day can really go, I am making some solid improvement on the Leg Press. Which is good because it is not an exercises I had done for a long time as I always felt the squat trumped it (still do) but have now found that the Leg Press has it's place in a solid routine! I'm really loving RPM, it gives some good clean energy and I don't really crash on it. Which is good, at first I had some issues sleeping after taking it because I workout in the PM but because of how tired I am after work and my workout I just crash no problem!

    Pics of the squat are to come as I edit them in!

    Thanks bro! But I find that hard to believe!

  12. Out of Drive but RPM looks to suit you just fine. They keep pushing me to try uncapping it but I just won't. Ok, now I'm curious enough to try.

    How's the wrist feeling? Hopefully it'll rehab enough to go back in for the 205. The numbers are solid and stable. This is a good program to follow with RPM.

  17. I am super late subbing but, better late than never eh?

    I've used 5/3/1 and loved it! Deff got stronger and faster for my sport. I am doing PHAT right now and its doing wonders for my physique.

    Just a little advice,take your 1RM and make your working max 90% of your 1RM. You might get 10-12 reps on you last set and that's totally fine. As long as your getting more reps for heavier and heavier weight,your getting stronger. Dont worry so much about big numbers, get your reps in.

  18. Pshhhh....uncapping the caps and drinking the powder is so last week. I snort mine. Haha! Just kidding, don't do that!!!!

    Looks like rpm has worked well for you. You are right about 3 versus 2 pills, too. A very noticeable difference for me.

    I know. I forgot to do it on week 1 and didn't want to change it after that.

    I've done PHAT and I liked it but I didn't see too much from the ridiculously high Rep schemes and ended up doing a variation with the same total volume spread for more sets.

    The reps are not really relevant to me as I'm doing this program specifically for the lower volume, for me its all about getting everything I can get for that last set on that particular day.

    It hurts like hell and I am of the firm belief that it is getting worse. My job doesn't really allow for me to rehab it so I'm just gonna tough it out until it either snaps or gets better, preferably the latter.

    HAHAHA. I had a roommate who tried that with jack3d. Needless to say, it was a terrible decision. Im a bad friend for convincing him it was a good idea.

    Jim, are you planning to get the wrist checked out?

    No. I had no intentions of getting it looked at. In the army its a whole lot of stupid crap just to see the doc so that he can say "quit being a ***** take this ibuprofen and naproxen and drive on" So I'm just gonna embrace the suck and drive on.

    That was my next question: where do you work/ what do you do? Always seems to have a profound impact on our lifting lives.

    I'm infantry with 82nd airborne.

  28. Did the OH press workout after work. Took the three RPM and got after it. The dips and the press went well, almost no pain with the wraps on. Its still sore without the wrap but I guess there wasn't enough weight to push my wrist back like there was on BP day. Will post up the number after DL tomorrow.

  29. 26july12 OH Press Week 3

    OH Press 5/3/1
    110x5, 120x3, 135x3

    Dips- 5x15
    Bwx15, +10x15, +25x15, +35x15, +45x15

    Chins-5x10
    Bwx10x5 sets

    As I stated in the earlier post the energy on this was good. As always. I didn't really have any problems and it isn't enough to keep me awake like the first day was. This workout went well for me and I live for dips and chins so I alwats enjoy OH press day!

  30. 27july12 DL week 3

    Dl- 5/3/1
    225x5, 250x3, 280x6

    The deadlift went well but the gym closes early on Friday (which I forgot) and I didn't get to do the assistance work. I probably could've done a few more reps with the last set but I didn't want to risk my form going south. J finished off my RPM with this workout by taking my last four and for me, four is just too much! I couldn't really eat after the workout because I felt real strange and I was burping up the rpm taste the entire workout. I think that for most people 3 will be the tops of what will be needed!

    I'm wrapping this up and will be moving it to my personal log (to be started for the duration if 5/3/1) and sincerely appreciate all of you who were a part of this. I want to send a shout out to the appnut team for letting me run these products and I can honestly say they will be a part of my next order (especially drive). If you have never tried these I recommend giving them a shot atleast once in your lifting career and for those that want to follow my progress I will be linking the new log into this one!

    I also want to apologize for the sporadic posts in here, work got crazy in the last couple of weeks and I was not expecting it to get this crazy!
