Fruity, but not really raspberries.Originally Posted by Marms
Woke up for an early leg day today - I just recently introduced hack squats into my routine. I'm actually really enjoying them & they seem to have triggered growth in all areas for me - the weights in my log book keep rising up & I keep feeling great!
Granted, I'm working out at my home & my weights are a bit lighter than what some of these tanks around throw up, but that doesn't phase me. It's my mission - my goals - my workouts - and my injuries if I screw it up.... I was reading in another thread about someone asking if they should do squats if they can't do a lot of weight. Because of an ankle injury, I forced myself to do more single leg & stability work along with various squats at a lighter weight. Plus in my home gym, it's mostly dumbbells - I've got a straight & ez bar & a couple adjustable benches, but no squat rack or barbell bench. This led me to a new appreciation of balance out muscle groups, as I could tell I had some weak spots that were being worked out. Now my legs feel stronger than ever - my problem ankle has not been a problem since, either. Just this morning I set my own PR of 4x8@150 for hack squat - I'm a tall fella & may never put up some huge numbers compared to some others, but I'll take every accomplishment & keep moving forward with it -
Tomorrow's arm day!
Up early, about to try a little experiment before doing legs this morning - 's stacked with - gonna be a good day...
The Tango stack has been working great. I've almost finished with that bottle of (only a few days left). My appetite has been running strong, and I've been feeling well overall. The leaning out has been steady. Not that I've been really bad, however I'm sure I can nail my diet down a bit better, so I'll be giving that a little extra effort in the coming weeks... My main issue is on my lower carb/cal - nonworkout days, inevitably is when I being called to go out to eat or someone invites us for dinner, etc - just making sure I get my macros in a variety of settings, not just my kitchen... My workouts have been strong - I'm sweating bullets & my weights continue moving up.
Last night marked the 1st night of . I've been using HGH Pro & already, but ran out, so decided to try Mass HGH - had a good night sleep & woke up feeling refreshed & ready to go. Since I'm starting something new & since I'm about halfway thru (give or take) this stack: how bout a fresh progress pic.
Taken this morning, empty stomach, preworkout -
Weighed in the morning @ 168 - going down....
(Coincidentally, not even a week after this run ends, the wife & I are booked for a little getaway to one of those pool suites places.....giggity...)
Still feeling great about seeing those scale numbers going down – This is probably the leanest I can remember being…feels good too – especially knowing I’m on the right track finally. Other than my pleasure of seeing my leaning out in action – nothing new to really report & I consider that a good thing at this point – everything is going along just like it should. I’m still sweating like wild beast with every workout. I can hardly get enough water in my system – if I’m not in the restroom, I’m at the drinking fountain. Dosing is very convenient with 1pill am/pm. I like not worrying if I will be up all night because I took it too late.
I had a couple social obligations lately that have kept me from dialing my diet in quite like I want, but instead of pouting about it, I’m hoping to learn better ways to keep in line regardless of scenario. I’ve gotta suck it up and try out a good diet app for my phone – previously I had been just checking in on my meals once in a while, run the numbers here & there to see a general idea. However, if I’m going to maximize the rest of this cut I gotta quit messing around
Not to sidetrack from my original log, but I’m now a couple nights into Mass HGH – one thing I notice is I don’t wake up with quite the rocket speed as I did with HGH Pro – not good or bad, just different – previously, I would more or less shoot out of bed, wide awake. Lately it’s been a bit more “natural” waking, I guess… Feels less like I took something the night before. Not sure what I think just yet, a bit early, but so far so good…
Glad everyting is working out and I get what your saying with the Mass hgh. I think its just the fact that the sleep is so deep maybe?
Hola! - Jeez.....I've been keeping busy lately - boss retired, mom in the hospital, my friend separated from his wife - lot's going on.....
I ran out of Revamp last week & now it's just HyperT2 during the day & MassHGH at night. I noticed that when I frist started the stack I'd experience a sensation of cold for a bit - just today (a couple days after Revamp ended) I experienced the same chill. I've only dropped a couple pounds, although my abs are really started to show - getting my motivation in the mirror... Leaning out & filling out... I've got just over a week left - so I'm trying to kick it up into high gear as this run winds down - I've been trying to work more cardio, along with a few sessions of Yoga, into my schedule, as my flexibility is in need of a little attention lately... Between stress, cooler temps, & lifting a lot of weight - Im feeling a bit stiffer all over recently & I'm hoping this helps me get past that last hurdle of getting my abs to pop -
Thanks for the update sorry to hear about moms & your buddy!
Thanks man - when it rains it pours, I guess....
Alright - back on it - Well, if the stressors in my life decide they don't want to back off, I'll just hide in the weight room a little longer My mom's on the upswing - still recovering, but much better...
I'm down to my last couple days of Hyper T2 - I've really liked this run - I think the soon to come photos will also confirm - leaning out & strength still going up. My weight hasn't really changed, except for wavering up a day then down the next, rinse & repeat - I'm still averaging out at 170 -
One thing I've noticed - I recently have had some rather annoying GI issues (untimely explosiveness just started in the last week or so). There's only 2 things I've changed: ran out of Revamp & tried out Alphamine a couple days - now I don't know if either of those aided/triggered/modified/etc - but for now I'm just going to attribute these issues to stress, as nothing going in my body seems all that apt to cause this....
Another item of note: I was kinda missing the really warm feeling Hyper gave me the 1st half or so of this run - I thought "eh - just tolerance" - so I decided to down a cup of coffee about an hour after my morning dose - I was right on the verge of sweating for what seemed like hours after that -
Sidenote: Marms - in Miss Q's log - is that really you in the NPC pic? .......damn beastly....
Hehe - awesome - yeah, that some massive size, makes the guy next to him look tiny
Upon further investgation, I'm finding that Alphamine may indeed have something to do with my gi issues of late - someone in another thread pointed out choline bitartrate. Good news though, I just need to watch my dosage, or just skip a dose if I'm feeling off... Luckily some of the other stresses of my life are starting to chill out, so hopefully that's taken care of...
MassHGH - over the weekend I decided to try 4 instead of 3, as I haven't been feeling the same level of recovery with this. I feel the extra cap has made a noticable difference - I'm waking up feeling & looking better each day.
Not recommended or "holy sh!t it's gonna blow!!!!" kind of not recommended? I'm usually the last one to push the upper limits on stuff like this, but I just don't feel myself responding quite like I did with HGHPro - 4 caps seems to get there (& just maybe a little farther) though.
Yeah - I like it a lot better... At 3 caps, I would wake up really groggy & it didn't seem like I was recovering as quickly as I had previously. Granted, I was taking HGHPro for the first 3weeks coming off a deload, and I've been taking MassHGH on the 3 weeks leading into a deload - so part of me can give MassHGH a little break, as my body could just be needing a timely deload.
At 4 caps though, everything seems to click - I'm waking up much more refreshed than at 3 caps & I'm looking pretty shredded upon waking the last few days. My aggression seems to be up a bit recently as well. I've had a bunch of random stressors in my life, so some of that could just be my own nerves, but either way - it's managable & quite honestly, if I could keep it confined to the weight room - it's a-ok as I keep smashing PRs
I'm planning on keeping at 4 caps for now, unless anything changes. The only thing that has came into mind lately has been a bit of lagging libido - early AM it's raging, but damn near nothing more than a whimper in the evening. I'll call it nerves, I guess....
